    Alright so the holidays are coming and I am working on building my sorta kinda girlfriend a B.O.B. She is a tiny little thing at 5'3. She is also (looks around in fear :xeye:) older at 40. We recently went on a hike in Yosemite and she loved my Camelbak Mule so I bought her the exact same pack...

    Ok, so I just finished reading Going Home, and it got me to thinking... I'm planning on taking a trip cross country this summer with my preschooler in tow - while I would like to bring supplies just-in-case I also need to be realistic about what I would be able to carry in the even we had to...
  3. Urban Survival
    I did a quick search of the threads here, but couldn't find anything on get home bag contents for a more urban setting. I work about 20 miles away from my home, and parts of the "as the crow flies" walk would mostly include the city. Does anyone have suggestions as to different equipment you...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have read a lot about Bug Out Bags. But I am interested in making a Get Home Bag. There are many times that I'm out and about, sometimes 10 - 20 miles away from the house. I would also like to make GHB's for my adult children (who think I'm insane) for their trunks, as their work take them...
  5. Urban Survival
    I have been lurking here for a few months and have seen many people talking about keeping their bug out supplies in their car especially in urban areas. I just had finals this morning and as I was going to my car I pressed the unlock button and the battery had died. OH NO I HAVE TO USE A...

    Pretty simple question, where do you keep your BOB? In the car? At home? This is something I'm having a hard time with.
  7. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Some have mentioned that they just carry their BOB in their truck etc, while others say there BOB stays home and they have a GHB expressly for getting to their BOB. I'm leaning towards having a GHB with a minor firearm stored in a vehicle, rather my BOB. Especially considering auto theft, or a...
  8. Urban Survival
    Do you keep extra clothes in your GHB? Right now I just keep an extra pair of boxes and 2 to 4 pairs of socks depending on what season it is. We don't have a lot of rain, but it does snow and if I have to get home on foot, it's about 45 miles. Anyways should I keep and extra pair of pants and a...

  10. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Yesterday the heat index was 105 so I pulled my GHB from my vehicle and did a quick check of its contents. I was surprised to see that some of my hard candies had melted and formed a larger mass. I broken the mass a part but did discover some of the "Jolly Ranchers" had completely melted. I...

    I'm not sure I want to call it a GHB or a BOB or what. This is a bag (fanny pack really) I carry in my car. I live in a suburban area and do some travel in rural areas. The concept is to try to have most anything I'd be likely to need for a day or two. You'll notice no firearms since I...
  12. Urban Survival
    The purpose of this bag overall: The purpose of this bag is to hold all the essentials that I anticipate the possibility of needing in an urban crisis situation. This bag is my daily "to work and back" bag that goes everywhere and is in no way shape or form, a "Bug Out Bag". This could...

    I just received my SO Tech Go Bag in the mail today (I would not suggest ordering directly from SO Tech). I am upgrading my GHB from the EOD molle bag from county comm to this pack. Here is the pack itself. It is a sling style pack, with 5 smaller pockets and one main pouch. Currently...
