One day I got thinking, I was quite busy elsewhere so when I got back home I had to pretty much just grab my bag and go, hoping all I needed was in the bag. Most of time my gear is <5 minute ready, meaning I have both camera and flash batteries either close to full, or charged after last event, and lenses/bodies are typically within 6 feet from my bag, and most in the bag anyway. So when I need my gear, just get my bag and check the adjacent floor and shelves for missing items, pick them up and I'm ready.
So say your friend gave you a call and tells there's awesome event you must come to shoot right now, gives the address but doesn't tell exactly what the event is, how long it would take you to leave your house with at least your main body plus most/all your lenses so regardless of the event you're set for the shooting. Flash(es) I would count in, but not strobes or anything that magnitude.
Choose either appropriate wording or the estimated time it would typically take you to get driving.
