(TacticalNews.com) – Have you ever been a long distance from home and wondered how you would get back should a disaster strike? If not, now’s the time to start thinking about your strategy. One thing is certain, a get home bag can be the difference between life and death.
Corporals Corner does a good job of describing various situations we could find ourselves in at any time and the importance of a get home bag (GHB). He also details what he puts into his own get home bag, offering a guide to how you can prepare your own.
A GHB is simply a small- or medium-sized bag in which you carry any necessary supplies to get you back home from wherever you are when disaster strikes. A GHB should have food, water, a knife/hatchet, a light source, a first-aid kit, maps, compass, cash and durable footwear at the very least. You can add items to this list depending on your needs.
Everyone should have a get home kit in case catastrophe should strike while they’re away from home. Essentially, these bags are a smaller and lighter version of bug-out bags, designed more specifically to get you to your home. From there, you can decide whether it’s best to shelter in place or hit the road again.
It’s important to note that not all knives are created equal, and your life may depend on having the right ones. Be sure to check out the difference between a survival and combat knife to determine which is best for you; maybe it’s best to have both.
