  1. I don't really get the concept of the all-purpose get home bag. The question I always have is "get home from WHAT?" What is the likely emergency? Walking home fifteen miles from a car broken down in the woods is different from walking home fifteen miles after a hurricane, a snowstorm, a flood, or an earthquake. In other words, it seems to me that the anticipated event — the reason you're likely to be walking home in the first place — should define what's in the bag.

    It seems to me that the idea of the all-purpose get home bag makes people pack all sorts of stuff that is basically useless. A guy is going to walk ten miles home from work and he needs a knife sharpener? In the middle of the city he needs a tent? He needs three flashlights? He needs a "write in the rain" pad? (But then he doesn't carry a little AM/FM radio that would give him important emergency news and information.)

    I'm not directing this to you in particular, but just expressing my opinion that in general most of the get home bags are WAY overdone, because they are created without any guiding principle, without considering what realistic conditions would force the owner to "get home" in the first place. Most get home bags I see are mostly collections of gadgets, assembled without much thought of whether realistically they would ever be used. Don't get me wrong, I like gadgets. I just don't think that I need to carry twenty pounds of them on my way home in the aftermath of an earthquake. Some of these "get home" bags I see on YouTube must be used by people whose home is on Mount Everest, because it takes a 30 minute video just to describe what's in the bag.

    By the way, I enjoyed your video, although you could get rid of half of that stuff and be none the worse for it.

  2. Enjoyed the vid and sub'd. I found that some items I will always need: water, food, lighter, rain gear, extra socks, head lamp with spare batteries, multitool, gloves, map, light sweater or fleece; small groom and toilet kit. Depending on the season I keep other bags in the truck: food with stove; extra warm clothes; extra clothes to spend the night somewhere; other footware; gallon of water. If I thought I needed to be on foot I would bring my poncho and hammock, and a bike. A bike can really make a bad situation better. On a road I can cover 30 miles in a few hours. I have a shovel, snow shovel, and saw in the truck. I have a come along and 2 tow cables. I also have a small plastic tarp. I don't try and pack everything in a bag. I work in a hospital and wear scrubs so I bring seasonal clothes etc. By keeping my bag light I can concentrate on travel. I have what I need to overnight at work, or in the truck, or in the woods. I just don't have to carry all of it. Sort of like first, second, and third line gear. I can scale up or down.
