    My criteria for a GHB (Get Home Bag) is something that will get me across town if cars and transportation are down (EMP, Freeways blocked). I’m looking at this as a range of about 50 miles, which I can cover in 2 days of hiking. Any trip over 50miles I’ll probably throw my BOB (Bug Out Bag) in the car. So my GHB has also got to sit on the seat or floor of the car and not scream “steel me I’m a laptop”. The bag has to be low key and not obvious if I’m hiking with it. This the bag I’ve settled on to keep in the car″ onclick=”;return false; The expansion ability combined with the durablity are the keys for me. Does this look like a book bag? Yes Does it look like a computer bag? Sortof. To cover this I’m getting some Boy Scout and Girl Scout patches to stick on it in am emergency (with velcro).

    This list is a GHB not a BOB. I’m not planning on sleeping or much else. I expect to be in work casual cloths if I need this. I want to go “dark” :ninja: and blend in but not go GI camo and stand out.
