Bug Out Bag vs Get Home Bag

7788 Views 27 Replies 17 Participants Last post by  Chris
Hey guys,

I'm new to the prepping world. The first step that I plan on taking is building a Get Home Bag (GHB). I feel this is in my best interest because I drive 35 miles for work one way. From the research I have done, a GHB consists of enough supplies to only last a day or so, keeping the bag light and easy to carry. I believe with having such a long distance to get home (estimating at least 3-4 days to get home, based on the very hilly terrain), it would be better for me to just make my GHB as if it were a Bug Out Bag (BOB).

Anyone have any thoughts or helpful tips that might help me out on this?

All ideas are good. The only thing I will add is that my EDC weapon is on me, not in the BOB. I do have extra ammo and mags in the bag, but not enough to be heavy. 2 loaded mags vac packed.

That's what I ment. No consideration unless it happens while I'm in the post office, church, or hospital. TX law not mine.
