My go bags

A Listmania! list by Aria (California)
The list author says: "This list comprises the results of a lot of research, cross-indexing and soul-searching. It reflects, I believe, a harshly realistic expectation of what would be needed in a major natural or man-made emergency.

These go-bags are designed to be stand-alone kits that will keep me and my family moving until we can safely travel outside of the affected area. Items not mentioned in the list are:

1) Laminated copies of important documents (ID, insurance, passport, cc)
2) Cash in small denominations ($200-$300 divided into $50 packets)
3) 3 days water and food (kept in larger house kit)
4) prescription medications and extra pairs of eyeglasses
5) baby supplies (diapers, wipes,etc)
6) toiletries (think travel size dop kit)
7) self-defense items
8) extra gas for car (in home kit)
9) Change of clothes (one set for all family members)
10) extra socks (wool, thick)
11) Sturdy shoes (Especially if you tend to wear high heels or open toed shoes a lot)
12) tarp (in home kit)
13) Toilet paper
14) Large, heavy duty garbage bags
15) Sleeping bags (in home kit)
16) 3 sets of spare batteries for anything in bag
17) butane lighter
18) Sharpie and paper (for leaving notes and directions)
19) Calorie dense, small food (energy bar or trail mix)"
