The concept of the get home bag is catching on. It was shrouded by the bugout bag for a long time. This idea that we needed an all powerful bag at home to get away from disaster seemed to rule the bag game. Of course, we spend way more time away from home than we do at home! So why would we not have a bag to get us back to home base? It only makes sense and you have to be thoughtful about this bag as well. Where do you work and how far is your hike back to home? All of these things need to be considered.
This is a great article about building that perfect get home bag and being ready to arrive when your family fears for the worst. Be prepared no matter where you are.
