I know I've talked before about being prepared for any emergency situation, and today I just want to show you this short video that highlights the basics in my "Get Home" Bag. I prefer to use this term rather than "Go Bag", because my survival decisions center around being able to get back home, no matter where I am or what my circumstances.
So, I've thought about the items I would need if I'm traveling and am faced with any kind of emergency---weather, car trouble, civil unrest. What could I use to make sure that I give myself the optimum chance of getting back home? As I say in the video, the items in my bag change, depending on my situation and how far I'm traveling. I also keep a pair of sturdy hiking boots or walking shoes in my car in case my vehicle is incapacitated and I have to walk. My small carry pack (see post on January 31st), provides additional items such as a flashlight and my concealed carry firearm.
So, as you can see, there are different levels of being prepared, and different strategies; this is just one more way to give yourself the best chance of success.
2 Chronicles 15:5-7 "In those days it was not safe to travel about, for all the inhabitants of the lands were in great turmoil....But as for you, be strong and do not give up, for your work will be rewarded."
