My belief is that a GHB is much more important than a BOB.
It should include a few things, water, weaponry, tools and food.
Others like to expand on the idea but some things I feel will not be needed for 99 percent of situations.
Keeping in mind we are speaking of a GHB and not a BOB.
Now depending on how far you are traveling to and from home, will determine the importance of some items.
For instance, if I travel long distance to and fro work or a regular destination, I may include maps, compass Etc.
As I will not know every neighborhood I may be crossing.
However if work or regular activities will take me into familiar close areas, looking at these two things may actually cause some confusion by
questioning what I know to be fact (i.e. this way has got me home every time).
Money of sorts could be important however, how much and what type?
Gold, silver, US dollar, peso, credit card?
Ten dollars, twenty, hundred?
What will you need to buy to get home, will ten bucks bribe you past a gang or police checkpoint?
Is it more effective to mug you and take your valuable equipment, or will it simply be stolen from your trunk while you are at work?
Many many variables.
If possible, carry a handgun, pocket knife and some cash on yourself, now you are your own GHB supplemented by the food and water in your trunk/boot
of your car.
Hope it helps
