I'm putting together a GHB for my wife to keep in the car with her. It is much more difficult than the one I did for myself. I have to keep in mind that she is much smaller than I am and unfortunately does not have the same outdoor skillsets and experience that I do. Training is definitely needed. The rationale for this is that a catastrophe or unrest could prevent her from returning home while she is traveling. Typically she only drives three miles to work and back. At times she can be as far as three hours away because of her job. Having a small store of food, water, means of providing shelter, change of clothing, light, heat, first aid kit, and water purification is necessary for her to make it home or to stay alive in inclimate weather. Because she in only 5'4" I got her a small pack that has padded shoulder straps, sternum strap, and waist belt. These features make hauling a load much more comfortable. I was surprised and pleased that while I was packing the supplies I have gotten so far that she came to me with a handful of feminine supplies. The girl has some smarts! My goal is to make it possible for her to make it for at least three days with the food included. Here is a list of what I have gotten so far. Explorer pack with four compartments and water bladder pouch. 4 Mainstay food bars 400 calorie each, assorted flavors 5 instant cocoa packets 1 each beef and chicken Ramen Noodle pack. Eat'n Tool combination spork Compact headlamp with 10 hour battery life. Need to pack spare 2023 batteries. Compact shovel for digging a Dakota fire pit or covering waste. Portable Aqua Chlorine Dioxide tabs. Each tablet purifies one quart of water. Feminine napkins. US Army first aid kit Emergency blanket (mylar). Waterproof matches Magnesium fire starter Kershaw folding knife Can of Pepper Foam spray Small bottle of hand sanitizer Small bottle of liquid camp soap 2 US Army triangular bandages (cravats) 1 pint stainless steel bottle Box of Trioxane bars 3 large trash bags There are some things I don't have yet, on the list so far is a one quart canteen with cup and canteen stove. Freeze dried meals. Instant coffee and sugar. She needs to pack a couple pairs of socks, change of underwear, a pair of comfortable and rugged pants, and her hiking boots. Next time I'm in a surplus store or gun show I'll get her a couple of Combat Casualty blankets. These are way stronger than the mylar emergency blankets with reflective on one side and OD on the other. They have grommets and can make an excellent shelter. I know there is more to do and I'm working on it. I'm glad she is onboard with this. She has thanked me a couple of times already for doing this, makes me feel like she has gotten away from being a sheep. Now I need to work harder on getting her comfortable with a handgun. I have two that are small and would work well as defense weapons that would pack easily. I'm currently packing my Keltec P11 in my GHB. The trouble is keeping is fairly light, hopefully below 25 pounds or so.
