I have just Bugged Out
Don't get too excited, if I still have internet access the situation can't be all that bad.
I live in an apartment complex. Earlier tonight I was coming home from a quick run to the store when the popo stopped me and told me I wasn't allowed to enter. I explained these were my groceries and I lived there and showed them my ID to prove it without them even asking for it. They said okay I could go in, but I had to go the long way around my building and not leave my apartment unless it was to leave the property.
I settled in and immediately grabbed my bugout gear. I honestly didn't expect I'd have to use it.
Anyway about 20 minutes ago the popo knocked on my door again and told me to get out in 5 minutes and that if I didn't get out, they'd get me out for me.
There was no time to grab anything besides my main bugout bag, some personal accessories and keys, and one change of clothes I keep ready to go with the BOB.
I was told by the officer when I walked out carrying all this stuff that I had to go anywhere but here. The apartment office was open to shelter us if need be, or if we left immediately we could leave by foot. I asked most politely "Officer my vehicles is right there. It's the red Chevy truck. May I drive away?" The officer was too happy to let me go.
I am typing this from Bugout Location number one, the school where I work. Don't laugh, I have plenty of space, security, water, etc. and I brought 3 days of food with me with 3 more day's worth in the truck.
I know I'm supposed to be gone for 4 hours minimum. I figure about midnight when the janitor leaves I'll drive back, park nearby, and walk onto the property and see if the ruckus has calmed down. If not, I'll get right back in my truck and drive right back here. I can stay here all night if I have to. Heck I can even take a shower.
Anyway I'm locked in my room behind the security barrier and there's no one here but me and Jefe and I'd trust Jefe with my life. I've got the keys and the security bypass codes and I know this building well. I've planned my escape from it and forced entry into it many times.
I've some provisions in my room too, and I've got the radio on listening for any sort of update. They told us it was a bomb but who knows.
I am paranoid. I am going to immediately go bathe myself as soon as Jefe is occupied elsewhere.
Anyway at least I got the internet. Keep me entertained tonight forumites. I doubt anything good happens, but I have just bugged out.

I've seen this before in the military barracks. It is likely that they found a meth lab in someone's apartment. They clear the area because we all know what happens if/when that stuff goes off.
I'd have asked what was going on, but you probably didn't have a chance.
That'd be my guess, let us know what happened.

Oh I asked and the bomb threat explanation was what I got.
I'll be here all night folks.

I know we mostly think we'll use our bug out gear in a big emergency like Katrina or something along those lines. I know I sometimes forget that if the neighbors house caught fire or part of an apartment/condo build burned everyone would be displaced. A smaller bug out scenario, but one to be prepared for at any rate.
Enjoy your evening at school.

Glad you got out and had stuff ready to go enjoy the school

I have to say, bugging out is extremely boring.

I'm "best guessing" not too many gun magazines to be found on the shelves in the school library.

Well Euc - I'll say this - there seem to be times when your life can NOT be called dull
I think you have proven for sure the value of having some form of Bugout bag - it shows too why it will never always be known when needed.
Well - long night ahead perhaps but give us the skinny when they let you back in - hopefully without too long a delay.

Holy crap mang! Can the police actually do that? Tell you to leave your home asap and not come back? I guess if its an apartment that you dont own, they van but i live in a house, I would probubly trust an officer that told me to leave my home asap but i would sure as hell question it. I hope you have an apartment to go back home to!! Your guns are in a safe im sure so they should be ok in an explosion. Anyhoo Glad you made it away from there before the party started and please keep up posted on what really was going down
I carry because I care.

The strongest reason for the people to retain the right to keep and bear arms is, as a last resort, to protect themselves against tyranny in government.
