However in our circumstances I believe there is a need for a "get back home bag", a kit for me and especially for my wife to carry in whichever vehicle we are in that has necessities in the event of a calamity or sudden inclement weather.
Keeping in mind that generally we are never far from home, and when we are that calls for a different gear kit, and also that where we tend to be driving we are never more than a mile from a friendly Amish farm if things go wrong. I am using the L.A. Police Gear "Tactical" Bail Out Gear Bag so it is pretty roomy without being backpack sized.
Some of the obvious stuff is already on the list: a EDC sized pistol and extra mags, a decent sized folding knife, a first aid kit, space blanket. I need a small flashlight but I am not sure which one to get yet.
My question to the crowd: what else should we be carrying and/or what do you have with you at all times?
Have at it!
