What stuff would you put in a grab bag just in case your given 10 minute notice to leave your home and never ever return. The bag can be no bigger then an average size back pack (say like those you see mountaineers using)
Now it can contain whatever you like (including kitchen sink) but you have to remember that you might be living wild for months if not years.

I'll start off with:
Medi kit.
Hunting Knife.
Spare boots.
Picture of loved ones.

Ka-Bar knife
swearshirt (hooded)
Boots but they don't count as I always wear them
knife sharpener
Duct tape
I Pod what can I say the world may be ending but I gotta have my tunes
pocket knife (I know I have the Ka-Bar but one can never have to many)
A good book (nothing special just something to read)
A hat
Cross (I am not religious but it holds personal meaning)
Wallet (duh)
Nails and a good hammer (you never know)

I could come up with more but you made a very broad subject. Are you saying leaving my home and moving somewhere else or leaving civilized society in general?

A half dozen cans of whoop-ass cause if I'm having to leave my home and never getting to go back, you can bet I'm gonna be in the mood to open a few on somebody.

Actually I always keep one packed up because I sometimes have to travel with little notice. I keep a change of clothes, Extra phone charger with extra battery, falshlight(waterproof)/w/extra batteries/compass(for getting offsets but could be used for navigation) 2 meter portable radio, hand sanitizer, lighter, a couple protein bars, mini binoculars, folding pocket map of my state. In the winter, I add a insulated hat, gloves, pair of wool socks. I also keep about a half dozen quart sized zip-lock bags for whatever.

I carry my phone, wallet, watch, a knife in my pockets.
