So what does your Get Home Bag look like? Is it full of supplies or just a few items? Do you use a backpack, messenger bag or something else entirely? What about weight – too heavy or not enough? How long does your commute usually take and what might happen along the way if SHTF? All these questions will help determine how much gear you want to include in your Get Home Bag and how big it needs to be – this article

The best way to wrap it up.
A get home bag is meant to help you survive in the event of an emergency and make it back safely. These bags should be well-equipped with supplies that can provide shelter, food, water, first aid items, communication devices (or signaling tools), a flashlight or lantern for light at night if necessary. The weight of your go-bag will depend on whether you are traveling by foot or vehicle as well as where exactly from work to home do they need to travel? It’s best not take chances when preparing this type of kit so always err on the side caution!
If you are traveling via a vehicle, always pack more than what seems necessary. Vehicles do all the work for us so we’re not really taking into account how far our gear is going to be carried if it’s no longer in use. Make sure that your backpack only contains essentials because otherwise, when there’s an emergency and vehicles must be ditched or travelling by foot everything will have to get transferred onto our backs which can make carrying heavier loads difficult on someone who isn’t physically fit enough!
Get out of the house and explore your neighborhood.
If you’re unable to carry weight for a long time, the size of your bag should reflect this. The farther away from home and work you are, the more gear will be necessary. If it’s just two miles or less then only put in necessities such as water purification tablets because there is little chance that power outages could occur at this short distance while if we move three hundred miles away there might not even be any electricity so everything including food would need to go into our bags!
Are you the type of person who likes to make plans ahead? If not, then take a look at this important aspect before traveling. Sometimes emergencies can happen which will result in an overnight stay or long wait for your vehicle or route again to be available. It is best if you are prepared with what gear and supplies may need depending on where you’re going as well how often that area has emergencies occur (like urban areas).

You might think that living in a place without harsh weather changes would make survival easier. You could be wrong! Climate change is real, and affects all of us; no matter where we live. What you have to consider when preparing for an emergency are the different climates around your region – such as heat, cold, snow or rain- which can affect what goes into your get home bag (and how much).
Make your journey one you’ll never forget.
A get home bag is a perfect example of what you need to survive when the unexpected happens. If your car breaks down in an urban environment, for instance where you’re not too far away from being able to walk back home or even grab somebody’s bike and ride it over there (which we highly recommend), then packing lighter will be more beneficial because that way, if anything else goes wrong on top of getting stranded at night with no transportation access other than yourself, you’ll have enough energy left so as long as nothing crazy happened like someone trying mugging or robbing people off their cars who were also traveling late at night–then yeah I think lightening up would be best!
