Vinjatek Go-Bag in Guangzhou, China ///I have survival / tactical / bug out / life kit go-bags stashed all over the world and I’m giving away 15 of them… It’s yours, if you can find them. -pro updates

For more than a decade I’ve been doing the “vagabond survival prepping method” of which evolved from stashing small city-specific go-bags around the world as part of my former operative profession.

This is a giveaway by way of scavenger hunting on a global scale. If you can find and reach them, it’s yours to take. This hunt is open to all.

It won’t be easy. They are securely hidden within populous urban areas with a few exceptions, going back as far as 12 years. Most are easily accessible if you already know it’s there but are meant to be undiscoverable for years.

Each go-bag is strategically packed specifically for the city or terrain they are located in. Regardless, they are all well stocked and useful for the average Vinjatek reader.

Each go-bag and its contents will vary. Some are duffle packs, most are backpacks and a few are small, waterproof dry bags(?).

The one thing all go-bags will have in common is the cash prize. No less than 100 US dollars or Euros are in each one along with micro bars of PAMP ($) gold or platinum.

All of them are double or triple sealed for waterproofness and weather resistance but obvious with visual contact.

No two go-bags are the same however, as most were made impromptu with only the resources available within the vicinity of the kit’s location and current possessions.
