GHB - Get Home Bag

The Get Home Bag contains items specific to getting you home, in an emergency, from the environment you are in. An extreme example of the Get (me) Home Bag situation would be a worker at an office complex finds there has been an EMP attack and all cars are not working. He knows it will soon be much more dangerous in the urban area of the workplace and goes to his locker or the trunk of his car. He removes the GHB and makes his way home on foot. The journey is much longer and still dangerous on foot than by car but with the items contained in the Get Home Bag there is less risk.

Compared to an EDC Bag and the heavier Bug Out Bag the Get Home Bag sits in-between the two types. Sometimes they resemble a large EDC but usually they are light to medium sized backpacks.

Equipment should be specific to the environment and conditions where you know what and where you are going. This contrasts to the BOB, INCH and EDC where an unknown factor is normally taken into consideration. With that in mind don't stuff too much 'extra' into it. You will be aiming for speed, not baggage with a GHB. Yet your fitness with play a part as well.
