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?

in my opinion. a get home bag is different than a bug out bag. from what i have seen on different forums and youtube videos, a get home bag is ususally a smaller version of your bug out bag. it should have the necessary items to last you a day. it should be small enough to have in your car, truck, bike, transportation device. but with enough food and water and tools to help you get through the day.
