Okay, where to begin? I want to put thought into this and not give out some kind of cockamamie information that won't help anyone. So I'll start at the beginning. DISCLAIMER: I don't have mine set up yet. I am searching for the best contents before assembling one. Let's break down what we know. EDC (Every Day Carry) Kit An EDC kit is some survival things that you carry on you everyday to help in emergency situations. This kit can be separated in different pockets, in a fanny pack, in an Altoids can, etc. It's a small kit and limited in it's scope, though quite useful. This may include things such as a pocket knife, small flashlight, extra currency, etc. If you do not know what it is, then I suggest looking it up. BOB (Bug Out Bag) A BOB is a backpack, hiker's bag or such that allows you to stay away from home for a certain time period. This may be from the minimum of three days, as advised by FEMA, to a longer stay such as up to a couple weeks. These bags are as varied as the people who put them together. Your experiences and plans will dictate how yours is put together. You can search the site for more on BOBs. And now for the reason I created this thread. INCH (I'm Never Coming Home) Bag This bag, cart, box or what have you, goes beyond the BOB. This is put together in the chance that some natural or man-made disaster takes your home from you. Say you get a warning of a nuclear strike on your home area and you know your home will be utterly destroyed and you never can live in that area again. This bag is designed to help you leave the area and seek out another place you can live. I have seen many ideas about this. Some are weapons heavy. Some are food heavy. The ideal bag would be a balance of both security and survivability. You cannot keep your supplies without security and you cannot be secure if you starve to death. This is an example of one such bag I found on the net.

It is said to weigh 95lbs.) This is not my bag, nor is it the be-all end-all. As I said, your bag may vary. Now I have done enough research on this to know that the idea of an INCH bag is supplemented with caches which have been placed before such a disaster happens. This is a start to get the discussion going.
