This is likely WAY more than I need for a 3 day trek home (I work about 50 miles from home), but this kit is also put together with the idea that it
may take longer to get home, or I may somehow be stuck longer. I really don't plan on foraging, hunting or fishing, for example, during those 3 days,
but if it goes longer, I'd like to have the tools for the option. My idea, assuming I have to leave my truck and get to the ranch, is to either find
another (abandoned) vehicle, or then hike home on foot.
IN TRUCK (If I'm in the Truck, and need more gas, a jump, etc., I can use this gear. If I have to leave the truck, I'm putting the backpack
on my back, strapping on the pistol, and grabbing the tool bag in one hand, and the clothes bag in the other, and heading for a safe area where I can
change clothes (out of my work clothes). Once done, I'll ditch the clothes bag with my old clothes. Will have to ditch the tool bag too, if I can't
use it to find another car (depending on the SHTF event).

is all pretty small and light...and spread out, not really much weight. (TS means Travel Size). The maxi pad, tampon, and condoms are NOT for their
usual purposes. Pants and Shirt both have quite a bit of pockets.
