Building a Get Home Bag contains proven tips for setting up the specific type of kit that will allow you to shoot, move, and communicate on your way back home during a large scale disaster. It isn’t complicated or expensive and it provides peace of mind.
A Get Home Bag (GHB) is not a full bug out bag (BoB). A Bob is designed to give you all the essentials in the event you have to leave home quickly. Rather, a GHB is a small ultralight kit designed to help you race back home to your family.
This document is short, but it contains information on a specific set of gear with realistic goals. Much of the information inside is a “new” take on the concept of a BoB.
As mentioned elsewhere, David Nash is not just a prepper. He is an academically trained emergency manager with real world experience in disaster response. David is also a law enforcement firearms instructor.
Typical bug out bags are loaded up with military style gear. Unfortunately, that will get you too much attention from the wrong people. Secondly, it will weight too much to move with speed and stealth. Lastly, they often are just filled with neato jiffy wow stuff that really don’t do anything but fill your pack and lighten your wallet.
This book describes a kit that works and is realistic. Everything in this kit is in the author’s vehicle as well as his wife’s car. He trusts the information within to help reunite his family in the event of an emergency, or it would not have shared it with you.

From that perspective, I tried to write about a kit that works and is realistic. Everything in this kit is in my vehicle and in my wife’s car. I trust the information within to help reunite my family in case of an emergency, or I would not have shared it with you.
