Bug Out Bag vs Get Home Bag

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?

These days it's better just to bring your long term BOB in your trunk with the way the worlds going. If that's not for you though with a 3 to 4 day trip back home on foot your get home bag should still be pretty close. Depending on what happens 3 to 4 days away from home could be a big difference depending on where you live what's there when you return. If you pack it, I say just go with a long term survival BOB outlook.
