Motorcycle Escape

Okay, so I’m trying to sell the motorbike, and in fact I’m a little freaked by the idea of having an accident and abandoning my child, so it’s pretty unlikely that I’m going to be doing any motorcycle-based bugging out any time soon … but I’ll keep this page around until he’s all grown up and I’ve retired1.

Get Back Home

The “Get Back Home (GBH) Bag” is the one full of the things you might need if, say, you were stranded somewhere and had to walk back to base - or, in my case, out of the city office and back home.

Weekend Bugout

This is the bag I will have packed, ready for us to go away for an impromptu weekend at an AirBNB, hotel or caravan park. I'm still thinking this through .


The everyday carry are those items you always have with you — keys, wallet, phone — and anything you cart from, say, home to office during the week, such as pens, a laptop, notebook, etc.

Bugging Out

A bug-out bag is a bag that contains food, tools, and other things for use in a disaster or other type of emergency. Often times when a disaster occurs, the infrastructure that we normally take for granted becomes bogged down or completely unavailable.


Ah, camping: relaxing under Australia’s enormous sky, with nothing to do and no place to be! We haven’t been for a long time, and have never taken Jules, so this year and early next year we’ll have to pack our bug out bags and just go for it.
