1 vehicle emergency bag.... fully equipped.
Several 3-day / bug out bags.... fully equipped.
1 "shelter-in-place" rubbermaid box..... fully stocked.
1 "shelter-in-place" rubbermaid box for our dogs.... fully stocked.
1 heck of a first-aid kit at home, but fully mobile to grab it and leave with if we need to take it with us. I can perform brain surgery with this thing!
All of our camping equipment is in one spot in the garage, we won't have to search for anything if we need to grab that as well.

It's has all been meticulously and strategically placed for "grab & go" throughout our home. Until this was accomplished, I couldn't sleep at night. Still adding to it when I get a really intelligent tip on something new.

Gotta be prepared for ANYTHING!

We plan to bug in, and are prepared for long term situations. We have kits in our vehicle that will get us home and are good for about a week travel time. We do keep our camping trailer fully stocked and if necessary we can bug out, ?a BOT?, and will be good for several months. We have had to "bug out" in the past due to forest fires and floods and earthquakes.

Some need BOBs and some need GHBs. I have the latter. Both trucks have supplies as well. I am making GHB survival bottles for friends and family for Xmas this year along with a how to use it video.

I have a survival bag to live in the woods for about 3 days and I have an Adventure Medical Kit Weekender kit. I carry a knife and a flint on my person.

Since we are set up for bugging-in , I carry a single box of get home supplies in my work van.
My range of service calls is rarely over 20 miles, I can make it home in a half an hour.
What I carry is 2 M.R.E.'s. , 1/2 gal of water in summer months (Winter it would freeze)
2 1/2 gals extra gas, set of sweats and wool sox's ( in case I get wet), rain gear and rubber boots, flash light and extra batteries, my old 357 mag and 50 rounds of ammo.
In the summer months I keep a 12 ga. mag in the truck for bear protection.
Have a boosted up side band CB in the truck that has at least a 50 mile range at the worst of times, to call home if there's a problem, plus my cell phone..

Im safe from Tsunamis but are you? Id think about a BOB and a fast run up Mt Marathon if it starts shaking again. Oh yea, don't forget the camera, some great shots could pay to replace your home and a retirement fund when IT hits again.

Default BOB's

I have all my gear in one spot ready to load in my truck.. ammo boxes set, and the 5 firearms ready to go.

Have enough food and water for four for 10 days ...

Each person has a bag of clothing packed and can grab heavy stuff for winter if necessary.

As I plan on bugging-in, I have two Bug-In-Bags. One stays in the SUV, along with a small tool box in a Plano carrier with wheels. The other I take to work with me. Since I spend more time at work then anywhere else, these two bags will get me home. I live three miles from work, a relatively short walk if I had to abandon the SUV. Although working on an island in the middle of the Mississippi river does present other problems.

Because it's not good for the sleeping bag or tent poles to always be packed. I have a gear room where I keep all my camping/Bug out(if needed) stuff. Would take less than ten minutes to pack and head out. Of course I'm not in an area that has any hazards that would require or cause an out the door now situation.

i have a BOB but it started as an "unexpected camping trip bag" for in my jeep,but now it is geared for a little longer time period and not dependent on me having the jeep.

I've always carried some sort of bag; be it an overnighter-emergency change of clothing w/toiletries. Just like I never let my fuel deplete less than 3/4 of a tank.

It just makes sense here. If you hit the ditch in a blizzard or a white-out in the winter here you could be on your own without rescue for hours. My wife and I both have extreme cold weather sleeping bags, sportcat propane heaters, UCO candle lanterns, water & food (wife only keeps energy bars where I keep 3-5 days of custom MRE type meals), kitty litter, etc. Basically whatever we'd need to sustain us and keep us from freezing to death until rescue arrives.

I carry my GHB to work, on short-long distance travels. Pretty much goes where I do.
