Prudent Prepping: GHB Tune-Up

The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Follow along as I build a long term plan via Prudent Prepping.

My boss has moved me to a different territory, which more than doubles my mileage and comes close to tripling my commute time since I will be traveling through major cities and crossing bridges every day. Now I have to configure my Get Home Bag for being away from home for more than two days.

Changes In My Get Home Bag 
In last week's post, I mentioned a long sleeve t-shirt being added. That is now supplemented with extra wool socks, a full pack of Esbit fuel tabs for the stove, 4 liters of water (counting the two in the truck) and extra packets of coffee. I normally have about 4 days of food in the pack; if I don't have time to pack a lunch, I eat the soup/chili or tuna and crackers, plus whatever leftover condiment packs I get when I'm out. (Don't judge me, I'm single.)

GHB Contents:
As it gets colder, I will be adding one long sleeve Polypro t-shirt to the mix and possibly an insulated vest that will be kept in the truck. It gets damp and a bit cold near the ocean here.
