    Your Go Bag, maybe a metaphor...

    So what is a Go Bag? It is all of your personal things, your clothes, hopefully some toothpaste and a toothbrush, maybe deodorant, things that keep you comfortable on a deployment. But it is also more, maybe a metaphor, let’s see…

    I invited Jonathen Davis on the podcast to talk about his Go Bag. Jonathen has a unique perspective, as a US Navy Combat Cameraman, he has schlepped imaging gear all over the world. His Go Bag has been refined to the essentials through trial and error. Join in and hear some perspective about how your Go Bag impacts the ability to respond to disasters.
