My Get Home Bags

I have two Get Home Bags, one for places I go where I can walk back to my home in just a few hours or less, and one for the places I go that might take a bit longer than one day to make it home.  What you need will vary depending on how far you travel and the territory you will need to travel through to get home, including whatever weapons you can competently use and legally carry.
