2: Bug Out Vehicle. A vehicle modified to help you bug out and sustain you during your journey. In the US the BOV is often a 4×4 like a Jeep, while in Europe it tends to be a camper van. BOVs should be capable of being lived in for at least a week, so they should have adequate sleeping space, cookers, water, toilet, storage etc. Some folks have Bug Out boats, horses, light aircraft / microlights, and other less conventional modes of transportation.
