What is in your go bag?


Recommended Posts

At the very least PP, wallet and phone. Everything else is expendable. Can probably get by without the wallet, the phone has most my money stuffed in it.

The idea of a 'go bag'... seems to be the delusional idea of someone who things they are in clandestine services and may need to escape without wasting seconds...     

 

In reality, for those needing to 'move quickly'...    that 'quickly' is hours not minutes.

 

In this context it has crossed my mind if my Son were to get into extreme trouble.. 

i.e. he's caught in a mates house with a load of drugs, or worse still caught in possession of a large amount of drugs etc... 

 

...  I'd do what I can to get him out of the country immediately.. 

 

Obviously, I don't ever expect this would happen and ensuring it doesn't is down to solid parenting - however, never say never !..

money for flight

I don't have such a bag. And I don't plan to get one.

 

If I would have one, then I guess part of it would be a lot of cash, maybe 10,000 USD or more. Because if you are on the run, then you don't want to keep too many traces.

"Go" bag reflects noob naivete.

 

For decades, long before WW3 fears, our shrewdest members have known that the real problem is the Thais. All the xenophobia, mistreatment, changing visa rules, price gouging, scamming, no smiling, indifferent sales clerks, hostile banks, confiscatory taxes, and insulting haircuts that show they don't want us here. In general, it's just that incomprehensible lack of love towards the poor farang just for showing up and being their lovable fat selves in cargo shorts, looking for cheap beer and pussy. It's all about money!!! NAKED DISGUSTING GREED for which life among the benevolent populace in the UK never prepared us.

 

So you never know what more nasty surprises THEY have in store for us! Be ready to RUN.

ANOTHER pothole targeted at farangs? Thais! How much more???

 

What we're looking for here is the classic, shrewd, street-smart ANF Poster Three Primal Laws Of Survival In Thailand, distilled over many years from the sage advice of our most knowledgeable members. Here ya go:

 

1. Never invest in anything you aren't ready to lose;

2. Never own more than you can carry with you or leave behind;

3. Keep your suitcase packed at all times.

 

There. All any foreigner needs. Now, enjoy!

 

Quoting one or more of the Laws gives you ten (+10) instant points of ANF posting cred from the peanut gallery.

 

 

How about

 

4. Never barfine the same girl more than twice.

 

Must be right up there in the pantheon of expert advice like 'Don't leave your brain in the overhead locker'.

Go bag? That’s hilarious 

A simpler, less hilarious, version of the idea: A home/building catches fire and the resident has minutes or seconds to grab what he can and get out. It's nice to have a grab bag which contains important documents, a change of clothes, and other items needed in an emergency. Much better than trying to think quick and run around the house grabbing needed items that may be scattered here, there, and everywhere.

great thread.

 

The only thing in my go bag is my PP, a change of clothes and a sh!t load of USD.

 

It has been packed and sat in the corner for months now.

I am keeping an eye on how everything is panning out.

Just waiting for an excuse to pull the trigger.

My "go bag" is called a suitcase, and I will cram it with as much of what I consider important  as I can if I ever need to get out fast.

 

Luckily, the airport terminal is literally five minutes from me.

Ok, maybe you feel the need to go soon, as the sound must be overwhelming. 😉
