Coronavirus SARS-CoV-2 COVID-19


Access this report to get a full summary of our hand-picked Immunity Methods for 2020: how to boost the immune system naturally and how to prevent COVID-19, the novel coronavirus SARS-COV-2

  • The International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) named the virus SARS-CoV-2
  • The name for the disease caused by this virus is COVID-19


TLDR: I put this together to provide family and friends with accurate information. Scroll down for checklists.



The name SARS-CoV-2 stands for Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome coronavirus 2.

The virus which causes SARS is called SARS-CoV. The name breaks down to explain what the virus is and what it does.

CoV represents the coronavirus, which is a type of virus so named because its structure has jagged edges which look like a royal crown, for which the Latin word is corona.

And SARS explains that the illness causes a potentially dangerous (severe), sudden but temporary (acute) infection which affects the lungs (respiratory).

Dr Nathalie MacDermott, from King's College London (KCL) said: 'COVID-19 is the name of the disease or illness the virus causes. 

'The virus has been named as SARS-CoV-2 as the International Classification on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) have determined that it is the same species as SARS but a different strain of the species.'

The name SARS-CoV-2 was revealed in a scientific paper published online by experts from the Netherlands, Russia, the US, Germany, Hong Kong and Spain.

In the paper, they wrote: 'The Coronavirus Study Group formally recognizes this virus as a sister to severe acute respiratory syndrome coronaviruses (SARS-CoVs)... and designates it as severe acute respiratory syndrome coronavirus'.

This is the Senator for Arkansas, Senator Tom Cotton, briefing with US Military leaders in early February 2020:


Latest Information

I'm writing to you from our farm in Australia.

The World Health Organisation defines a pandemic as “an outbreak of a new pathogen that spreads easily from person to person across the globe”.

Preparation is the best solution.

I’m not a "prepper" and we are fortunate to live off-grid on a farm in countryside a few minutes from the beach.

Originally from the UK and with our Health Evolution premium health supplements company in the USA, we have access to in-depth information and wide-ranging perspective from our team around the world. Some of our family live in cities, so we have compiled these top tools and tips to be relevant for every particular circumstance.



Let’s look at this particular coronavirus in more detail: it is more serious than an average class of coronavirus. It's airborne. It can be caught through the eyes, so a mask isn't the only thing we have to think about. 


The global concern about this novel coronavirus is not hype. It is not overblown.


Consider these  facts: in a bad year, seasonal influenza will kill about 30,000 people in the United States, with a mortality rate of about one out of every thousand cases. About 30M people get the flu in the United States, with 30,000 deaths. That’s 0.1%.


According to the official WHO Situation Dashboard, mortality at the time of updating this is over 4%. This site independently monitors 


if the flu had a 2% mortality rate, we would be seeing about 600,000 deaths a year, not 30,000. 


COVID-19 appears to have a mortality rate approximately 20 times higher than influenza.


And the spreading rate seems to be about twice the rate of R0 of 2 to 3.. compared to influenza of 1.5.


COVID-19 spreads rapidly because no-one has any immunity to it, unlike many strains of cold and flu.



This information is prepared and provided in good faith for family, friends, and participants in the Health Evolution Movement. As always, do your own research and make your own decisions.




 Sheltering in place for 3 weeks could cause COVID-19 to burn out.


It is important to leave hospital beds for the 20% or so of the population who will require it. About 80% of people are only moderately sick.


This appears to be a disease which is mild for four out of five people, but dangerous or lethal for one out of every five! About 20% become dangerously or critically ill.


One statistic which is not reaching the public consciousness is there are currently about 15,000 people in serious or critical condition in hospitals in China, and now elsewhere. This is a number which can overwhelm a medical community.


In a developed region with adequate medical care, hospitalization means most of these people will survive and we will retain that 2% mortality rate.


In undeveloped regions, or if there is incompetent civil response, we're not going to see numbers that optimistic.


Large numbers of people survive paycheck to paycheck. And losing a few weeks of work will be devastating. 


Medical treatment can be through video conference so mild and moderate cases are  treated at home when possible. 

Schools and universities could go online.


The largest impact could be financial, personally, for businesses, and for whole countries.


It’s important to have  adequate resources for several weeks or a month.


You want to be prepared for emergencies, natural disasters, and other events which might require us to live without outside access, or electricity.


This virus has the WHO (World Health Organization), the CDC (Centers for Disease Control and Prevention: the leading national public health institute of the United States), and every nation extremely concerned. For very good reasons. 


The reality is this is a dangerous disease which is spreading across nations rapidly and which can have serious consequences on the global level..




Shelter-in-place is an effective strategy to prevent epidemics. And every responsible person should already have safety plans in place in case of various natural disasters or emergencies.



Note: following these precautions will also keep you and your family healthier from colds and flu:

      1. Wash your hands with soap and water to minimize your infection risk. The best way to prevent coronavirus, colds, and flu, is to wash your hands as often as possible. Wet your hands with warm water, then apply a mild soap. Work the soap into a lather for 20-30 seconds, then rinse your hands clean under warm running water. Always wash your hands before you eat or drink anything. Also wash your hands every time you’re out in public and after you return home.
      2. Keep your hands away from your eyes, nose, and mouth. You may come into contact with the coronavirus on a surface, like a doorknob or countertop. When this happens, the germs can linger on your hands, so you can easily infect yourself if you touch your face. Avoid touching your eyes, nose, and mouth in case the virus is on your skin. If you need to touch your face, wash your hands first so you’re less likely to infect yourself.
      3. Avoid unnecessary travel. This virus is infectious even before symptoms show up. This means people do not know they are carriers while they can be infectious. Do yourself and everyone a favour and avoid unnecessary travel.
      4. Stay away from people who are coughing or sneezing. Since coronavirus is a respiratory infection, coughing and sneezing are common symptoms. Additionally, coughing and sneezing both release the virus into the air, so they may increase your risk of infection. Keep your distance from people who appear to have symptoms of an upper respiratory infection. If it’s appropriate, ask the person to stay away from you. You could say, “I noticed you were coughing. I hope you feel better soon, but please keep your distance so I don’t get sick.”
      5. Follow respiratory etiquettes — cover your mouth when coughing or sneezing. Wash your hands immediately afterwards.
      6. Disinfect high-touch surfaces frequently using a product that kills viruses. Coronavirus can linger on surfaces, such as doorknobs, countertops, and faucets. Use a spray disinfectant, bleach wipes, or clean with lemon myrtle to clean these surfaces frequently, at least daily. Make sure the surface stays wet for about 10 minutes so it effectively kills the virus. This limits the risk of the virus lingering on the surfaces and potentially causing an infection. In your home, disinfect all doorknobs including your front doorknob, inside and outside the door. Also disinfect kitchen counters, bathroom counters, and faucets. At work, clean surfaces that people tend to touch, such as doorknobs, stair railings, tables, and surface counters. You can make disinfectant by mixing 1 cup (240 ml) of bleach with 1 gallon (3.8 L) of warm water; adding essential oils such as clove, cinnamon, eucalyptus, lavender, lemon, lemon myrtle, oregano, peppermint, pine, tea-tree, thyme. Many essential oils are considered naturally antiviral and antibiotic. Essential oils may not only fight off infection-causing bacteria and viruses, but can also provide support for the immune system, skin, muscles, bones, cells, or emotional health.
      7. Make sure your and your pets’ vaccinations are up to date
      8. Have an N99-grade disposable face mask for each of your family to wear while in public, if this becomes necessary. Since coronavirus spreads through the air, it’s possible to breathe it in. Cover your nose and mouth with a good quality face mask to limit your risk of contracting the virus. Don’t reuse your masks without taking correct sterilisation procedures because that can increase your risk of contracting coronavirus. Always wash your hands after you remove your mask in case you encountered coronavirus. If you take off your mask and then immediately touch your face, you could become ill if the germs are present. If you’re at high risk for respiratory infections or have lung disorders like asthma or COPD, and you’re traveling, wearing a disposable mask is recommended. I have these
      9. Avoid contact with live animals, apart from your own pets, and consumption of raw/undercooked meats/fish/dairy. Avoid travel to farms, live animal markets or where animals are slaughtered. 
      10. Stock up so you have sufficient at home to avoid having to go out
      11. Have a really good tidy up, get rid of anything you don’t need, and have clear space along with room to store your provisions
      12. Reduce debt and take action to sell anything you’ve been meaning to let go, to give yourself as much financial security as possible
      13. If you have a business, bear in mind your usual supplies might be interrupted so maybe pre-order
      14. Practice good nutrition and be sure to take high quality dietary supplements: increase fresh, frozen, or tinned fruit and veggies; use more herbs and spices; add fermented foods so you get your probiotics, choosing from any of these: beer and wine, dark chocolate, chutneys, pickles, kefir, kimchi, kombucha, kvass, miso, natto, green olives, fresh peas, sauerkraut, sourdough bread, tempeh, vinegars, yogurts. Red wine, tequila, and gin also contain prebiotics or polyphenols which help your gut health. Obviously, only a little alcohol is the way to go, about one measure a few times a week. High quality trustworthy supplements are essential.
      15. Reduce your stress levels as much as possible - high stress causes unmanaged cortisol in the body, which causes lack of immunity and increased inflammation, all of which predispose you to infection from bacteria, viruses, and diseases.


Protect your immunity through nutrition, premium supplements, adequate deep sleep, avoiding stress and trauma, protecting your cortisol levels, enabling your body to be in balance and to rebuild.

What does the US Department of Homeland Security say?

"Before a Pandemic

  • Store a two week supply of water and food.
  • Periodically check your regular prescription drugs to ensure a continuous supply in your home.
  • Have any nonprescription drugs and other health supplies on hand, including pain relievers, stomach remedies, cough and cold medicines, fluids with electrolytes, and vitamins.
  • Get copies and maintain electronic versions of health records from doctors, hospitals, pharmacies and other sources and store them, for personal reference. Get help accessing electronic health records.
  • Talk with family members and loved ones about how they would be cared for if they got sick, or what will be needed to care for them in your home.

During a Pandemic

Limit the Spread of Germs and Prevent Infection

  • Avoid close contact with people who are sick.
  • When you are sick, keep your distance from others to protect them from getting sick too.
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when coughing or sneezing. It may prevent those around you from getting sick.
  • Washing your hands often will help protect you from germs.
  • Avoid touching your eyes, nose or mouth.
  • Practice other good health habits. Get plenty of sleep, be physically active, manage your stress, drink plenty of fluids, and eat nutritious food.



 Make sure you have enough of these:

      1. water
        1. water in storage
        2. water filters
        3. water containers - I have these and these
    1. you can store water in your freezer and fridge, which also reduces running costs because there’s less air to keep cold; it’ll also keep your fridge or freezer functioning for longer in the event of a power cut
  1. food and nutrition
    1. supplements
    2. dried
    3. tinned
    4. sprouting seeds - especially mung beans
    5. grow herbs in the garden/window boxes/plant pots
    6. grow salads
    7. growfruit 
    8. grow veggies
  2. pet supplies
    1. pet food
    2. meds
    3. hygiene equipment
  3. hygiene
    1. laundry
    2. cleaning
    3. personal hygiene
    4. facemasks - I have these
  4. medical supplies
    1. cold and flu treatments including Sambucol elderberry syrup 
    2. panadol, nurofen, cough medicine, electrolytes, betadine, antihistamine, anti-fungal cream, tissues 
    3. hot water bottles
    4. first aid stocks
    5. prescription medications
  5. fuel
    1. for the car
    2. for the home
    3. for business
    4. batteries
  6. power
  7. security including batteries


I recommend keeping in a supply of elderberry syrup - I keep some bottles of Sambucol on hand. There are numerous peer-reviewed, double blind studies showing that elderberry syrup has pronounced anti-viral activities. While it does not prevent one from getting the flu or a cold, it does knock the symptoms in half, and reduces the recovery time significantly


Beyond that, your best chance of avoiding catching something involves staying away from people, washing your hands fastidiously, wearing a mask when you have to be around others, properly shaming any idiots who show up to events/work sick and coughing, not touching public surfaces (railings, knobs, etc), and never, ever wiping your eyes or touching your nose or mouth before washing your hands.

“Store what you eat and eat what you store” is easy, and doesn’t cost more in the long run.

For example: if you normally soup twice a week:

  • Cans of soup have a shelf life of three years.
  • Buy a few extra cans each shopping trip 
  • Newly-purchased cans go to the back of the pantry so you use the oldest can first
  • You’ll build up a surplus with a pantry of up to 312 cans of soup (2 per week x 52 weeks x 3 year shelf life).
  • Once you have the right surplus level, go back to usual, just just buying enough each trip to replenish what was eaten
  • If an emergency happens, there’s now over 300 cans of food that you already like with up to 3 years of shelf life

Some groups, like the Red Cross, have updated their suggestions; their site now says, “3-day supply for evacuation, 2-week supply for home.”

“There is an urgent need for residents to prepare for two weeks.” — Robert Ezelle, director of Washington’s Emergency Management Division

Back in 2016 the US Navy, Coast Guard, and Washington state’s National Guard did a full-scale, nine-day drill to test how well they could respond to a massive earthquake in the Cascadia Subduction Zone. That area covers Vancouver, Seattle, and Portland through northern California. In the 83-page report, the authors admit the systems are not ready, infrastructure would collapse, and they’d have a full-blown humanitarian crisis in ten days.

The Portland Water Bureau had a similar message about an earthquake in that region: a million people in that 225-square-mile area would be without water for months, not days.

The American Military reports they need an average of eight days to mobilize a response inside the US border — and that’s just for a relatively-localized crisis, such as an earthquake.

Home checklist summary in more detail:


As the world anxiously waits to find out whether the coronavirus will become a pandemic, we are all more aware than ever before of the need to boost our immune systems.

Our immune response capabilities can become reduced in the very young, older people, and people whose health has been compromised through illness, anxiety, chronic stress, and emotional trauma. In turn, this compromised immunity contributes to more infections and more cancer. 

The conclusion of many studies is that, compared with younger people, older people are more likely to contract infectious diseases and, even more importantly, more likely to die from them. 

Respiratory infections, influenza, and particularly pneumonia are a leading cause of death in people over 65 worldwide. 

No one knows for sure why this happens, but some scientists observe that this increased risk correlates with a decrease in T cells, possibly from the thymus atrophying with age and producing fewer T cells to fight off infection. 

Whether this decrease in thymus function explains the drop in T cells or whether other changes play a role is not fully understood. 

Another school of thought is whether the bone marrow becomes less efficient at producing the stem cells which give rise to the cells of the immune system.

There appears to be a strong connection between nutrition and immunity. 

A form of malnutrition that is surprisingly common even in affluent countries is known as "micronutrient malnutrition." 

Micronutrient malnutrition, in which a person is deficient in some essential vitamins and trace minerals that are obtained from or supplemented by diet, can be common, especially people who have less variety in their diets. 

One important question is whether dietary supplements may help maintain a healthier immune system. 



The old saying, “an army marches on its stomach” is particularly true of the immune system fighting force.

A healthy immune system needs good, regular nourishment. Scientists have long recognized that people who are malnourished are more vulnerable to infectious diseases. 

The irony now is that even affluent families and societies can be malnourished due to eating pre-prepared meals, fast food, and a small choice of foods.

Even fruit and vegetables are compromised due to modern growing methods, with numerous studies categorically proving that fruit and vegetables are woefully short of nutrition compared to previous years.


There is some evidence that various micronutrient deficiencies can alter immune responses.

So what can you do? 

If you are like most people whose diet is not providing you with all your micronutrient needs, taking a premium supplement may bring health benefits in addition to beneficial effects on the immune system. 


Some ingredients have been found to alter some components of immune function.

Proving  whether any ingredient can enhance immunity is highly complicated but there are numerous peer reviewed double blind studies showing that some supplement ingredients when taken at the recommended clinical dose have a strongly beneficial impact on the brain and body.


Modern medicine has come to appreciate the closely linked relationship of mind and body. A wide variety of maladies, including stomach upset, hives, and even heart disease, are linked to the effects of emotional stress. 

When people are exposed to situations they regard as stressful, it is difficult for them to measure how much stress they feel, and difficult for the scientist to know if a person's subjective impression of the amount of stress is accurate. The scientist can only measure things that may reflect stress, such as the number of times the heart beats each minute, but such measures also may reflect other factors.

Most scientists studying the relationship of stress and immune function do not study a sudden, short-lived stressor; rather, they try to study more constant and frequent stressors known as chronic stress, such as that caused by relationships with family, friends, and co-workers, or sustained challenges to perform well at one's work. 

Scientists are investigating whether ongoing stress takes a toll on the immune system.

What we do know is that chronic stress causes cortisol (the “stress hormone”) levels to become unbalanced.

In turn, cortisol causes inflammation.

Inflammation is present in all diseases, from depression to diabetes, obesity to heart disease, and everything else.

So to manage inflammation and your immunity, you need to naturally control your cortisol levels.


Your immune system is your own personal army of special cells and chemicals armed to fight dangerous bacteria and viruses which cause infection. 

You need extra help when you're attacked by the alien man-made toxins surrounding us nowadays.

It has been estimated that autoimmune diseases are among the leading causes of death among women. There are more than 80 illnesses caused by autoimmunity, often chronic, debilitating, and life-threatening. 

In addition, the WHO (World Health Organisation) raises the alert about rising allergens - from pollen and pets to mold - and these triggers cause disastrous reactions in many, often leading to chronic problems.  

The biggest risk to your energy levels today seems to be overwhelm, often causing chronic stress.

70,000 thoughts a day... 5,000 adverts bombarding you daily... both of these numbers can be dominated by negativity...

No wonder so many feel tired and simply don't know which way to turn.

To prevent the Coronavirus, a strong immune system is essential.

You need the complete building blocks of life, protecting your telomeres, firing your mitochondria - your body's "energy power plants" - defending every stem cell, every tissue, fibre, bone, and blood...

Now more than ever, you need  the complete building blocks of life, protecting your telomeres, firing your mitochondria - your body's "energy power plants" - defending every stem cell, every tissue, fibre, bone, and blood...

It can be hard to see the right answers.

Until now.

P.L.A.N. Formulas - Pure Live Active Nutrition - with genuine Norwegian Young Tissue Extract Dynamic Protein YTE®, at the recommended clinical dose.

YTE® uniquely modulates cortisol - your stress hormone - so you’re back in control. More about this here

Coupled with the beneficial impact on cortisol, YTE® regenerates stem cells, repairing and renewing where needed.

So you Rebalance and Rebuild.

Increasing immunity, decreasing allostatic load (chronic stress) inflammation.

With botanical formulas with the most effective herbs and spices, including ashwagandha, ginkgo biloba, inulin, piperine, rhodiola rosea. And the entire B Vitamin Complex.

Just as amino acids work most effectively when all are included in the correct natural balance, so too do all the B Vitamins.

The highest quality botanicals super-chage the effect.

For example, BioPerine® which is from piperine, the powerful phytochemical within black pepper.

But not just any piperine.

We only use BioPerine® because it has the best, most consistent results of any piperine. Unlike many other companies who use the cheapest options, we only use genuine ingredients at the right dose.  

The magic is in how it affects your body.  When you ingest a plant with restorative properties, something interesting happens.  Your enzymes break it down and limit the potency.  Piperine naturally stops those enzymes in their tracks.  This allows the powerful restorative qualities to impact your whole body instantly;  Sometimes 20 times stronger!

 Our company Health Evolution owns the TeloMind™ YTE® formula and the Get Your Boom! Back® range of YTE® formulas.

YTE® is Young Tissue Extract Dynamic Protein. It's a rare and natural ingredient which is harvested over 9 days in a patented, cold-extraction process from specifically-produced free-range Norwegian hens' eggs. Here is full information:

Our YTE® formulas are most well known for the unique twin actions of regulating cortisol (the "stress hormone") and at the same time, regenerating stem cells.

"Rebalancing and rebuilding".

What most people don't know is that the #1 way to protect immunity is to have balanced cortisol.

The trouble, of course, is that the W.H.O. - World Health Organisation - years ago identified chronic stress as "the health epidemic of our time" and it's been getting worse.

Coupled with a novel virus, chronic stress kills by dramatically decreasing immunity.

The perfect storm: hugely elevated cortisol and a pandemic.

I'm writing to you from our farm in Australia, where our Prime Minister has said there is “every indication the world will soon enter the pandemic phase of the virus”. Australia is ahead of most of the world and has already implemented an emergency response plan ahead of the W.H.O. and is now effectively operating on the basis that a pandemic had been declared.

The World Health Organisation defines a pandemic as “an outbreak of a new pathogen that spreads easily from person to person across the globe”.

Preparation is the best solution.

It is vital to protect and augment the immune response.

Having too much cortisol in your blood opens the door for more inflammation.

In addition, stress decreases the body’s lymphocytes — the white blood cells that help fight off infection. The lower your lymphocyte level, the more at risk you are for viruses, including the common cold, cold sores, flu, and coronavirus, including COVID-19.

High-stress levels can also cause mood disorders and anxiety, again leading to higher levels of inflammation.

Continuous high levels of inflammation point to an overworked, over-tired immune system that can’t properly protect you.

If you don’t control high-stress levels, chronic inflammation can result and can contribute to the development and progression of many diseases of the immune system. That's what contributes greatly to age-related diseases.

So do all you can to manage and modulate your cortisol levels.

If you need help with this, just let us know.

We have $1.2M of our formulas currently ready and shipping to all corners of the globe.

Purchase orders are written for further production.

We are determined no-one shall be left behind, and no-one should have to deal with this alone. That's why, for years, we have had a "Pay What You Can" program, sponsoring people who for whatever reason can't afford our formulas.

The most popular option is the Ultimate Health 30 Day System

The best single formula is TeloMind

The original formula, and more economical than TeloMind, is AminoBoosters

For people who cannot tolerate ginkgo biloba (in both TeloMind and AminoBoosters), AminoB12 is the best choice

All three of these formulas - TeloMind, AminoBoosters, and AminoB12, contain full recommended clinical dose of YTE®.

Best choice: Ultimate Health 30 Day System

Our fourth formula is AminoSerene

Containing a boost of YTE®, at 600mg daily dose instead of the full clinical dose of 1600mg/day, we recommend this as a supplementary formula to accompany one of the other three formulas.

Some people take AminoSerene as a stand-alone formula.

It is particularly useful for HSPs (Highly Sensitive People - including business owners, change-makers, creatives, empaths, entrepreneurs, healers, medical professionals - either alone or, better still, in conjunction with TeloMind, AminoBoosters, or AminoB12.

A few curious facts concern the various arrests concerning US Universities, Medical Schools, and Chinese nationals including involvement with Wuhan:

This was the CNN report

The Chair of Harvard University’s Chemistry and Chemical Biology Department, Dr. Charles Lieber, 60, was arrested and charged over involvement with nanotechnology and China. Unknown to Harvard University, since 2011, Lieber became a “Strategic Scientist” at Wuhan University of Technology (WUT) in China. Various Chinese nationals have also been arrested separately.



I’m not a prepper and we are fortunate to live off-grid on a farm in Australia. Originally from the UK and with a Health Supplements company in the USA, we typically travel quite a bit. In addition, some of our family live in cities, so these tips, courtesy of, may be useful for particular circumstances:

What is a “bug out bag” and should you have one?

An emergency can strike at any time. You may only have seconds to leave your home. Or maybe you gain an advantage (beating traffic) by evacuating while everyone else is still wondering what to do.

A core part of being prepared is having one bag that’s always packed and ready to use — no matter what happens, you’ll know you have the right core essentials to survive, comfortably handle the aftermath, and potentially help others around you.

So your bug out bag is essentially your emergency kit, since you’ll be okay if that’s the only thing you ever have/prepare.

Bug Out Bags for every adult

More accurately: a bug out bag for everyone around the house who can carry them. Many families build a separate bag for children once they hit 10-12 years old, modifying the contents as needed, for example.

See the complete bug out bag checklist — there’s too much to include on this page, including the reasons why experts prioritize the gear they do and how to prioritize gear across three levels.

For example, a basic 20-pound “go bag” could have:

  • Individual First Aid Kit – Level 1
  • 32 oz potable water stored in a hard canteen
  • Collapsible canteen/vessel
  • Water filter
  • Water purification tablets x 20-40
  • Food that’s ready to eat
  • Lighter x 2
  • Tinder
  • Headlamp
  • Field knife
  • Multitool
  • Cordage x 50’
  • Tarp
  • Waterproof paper and pen
  • Documents (physical and USB thumb drive)
  • Cash
  • Condensed soap
  • Toilet paper
  • Nail clippers
  • Hat
  • Socks
  • Top base layer
  • Pants
  • Underwear
  • Jacket / outer shell
  • Shemagh / bandana / gaiter
  • One- or two-way radio
  • USB charging cable and wall plug
  • Li-Ion battery pack
  • Respirator
  • Contractor trash bags x 2
  • Storage bags (20L drybag and 5x gallon ziplocs)

For most people in modern societies, that means a combination of:

  • A Get Home Bag (GHB) in your vehicle trunk/boot, work locker, office, or wherever else it can be safely stored in a way that’s near you for as much of a typical day as possible.
  • Everyday carry (EDC) items you keep on your person at all times, either on your body or in a daily-use pack, such as a school backpack or purse.
  • Car supplies. Even if you keep a GHB in your trunk, it’s a good idea to keep additional gear specifically for vehicle problems.

A Get Home Bag gets its name from the concept of “Shit just hit the fan, so I need to get home because that’s my primary spot!”

But a GHB also serves as your only source of supplies if the nature of the emergency means you can’t (or shouldn’t) try to get home. 

So a GHB is similar to a BOB in many ways, just kept outside of the home. You should use and modify the bug out bag checklist.

Common loadout differences between a GHB and BOB:

  • Car trunks can get very hot, so avoid foods and medicines that melt at 100-150 degrees.
  • Only fill water containers ~85% of the way to allow for freeze expansion in cold climates.

Since most people reading this drive everywhere, the car trunk/boot is the most common storage spot. Some people go as far as to store their GHB near their job or on the route between work and home.

If you don’t drive or just don’t have the ability to store a whole backpack somewhere, do your best to integrate the most important supplies (eg. a water filter) into your daily-use packs or purses.

Everyday Carry checklist

Since EDC items are physically carried everywhere you go, you’re much more limited by space and weight. Over 95% of EDC items you see in the wild are made from all or part of this list:

  • In Case of Emergency details (eg. a laminated card of important info kept in a wallet)
  • Phone (usually with downloaded maps and helpful apps)
  • Rechargeable battery pack
  • Flashlight
  • Pocket knife
  • Multitool
  • Lighter
  • Paracord
  • Weatherproof notepad and pen
  • Hidden cash and/or credit cards

These items can be spread around in whatever way makes sense for you. For example, some people keep the phone and lighter in their pocket, the flashlight on their keychain, the multitool on their belt, the paracord in the form of a wrist bracelet, and the medical supplies, respirator, USB battery, notepad, pen, and ICE info in their bag/purse.
