Bug Out Bags...Not Quite Sure...
This thread is a repeat of past info that has had some excellent points. Prehaps with all of the new faces, the discussion may begin again.
I am not sure that short of a Nuke or Chem situation, that I would want to be anywhere but right at home. Through past posts I have managed to increase my 'stocks' to include many items from foods, drink, medical supplies, obviously...a small armory, batteries, generator, gas...and on, and on, and on...
I do have a small enclosed cargo trailer in which to transport needed supplies and camping equipment...I do plan, however, to only use that vehicle to transport my Harley and camping equipment for...camping...the fun type. Can I load the trailer and go quickly? Yes, but to go where?
So many talk about a B.O.B. ...a Bug Out Bag...but to go where? I can only imagine a desperate situation where an entire population or area would HAVE to move, but what a nightmare, a gridlock for sure.
If you don't have enough gas to drive the entire route, what do you do if gas stations are out? Go where? To what?
I'm much safer in my own home. I know the area. I know my neighbors...many of us are prepared...(that includes some full auto weapons). If the SHTF big time...it's will hurt us all...but I want to defend me and mine from a place I know well.
I believe that a community that works together is much more capable of 'hanging in there'. I could probably stay in my house and local area for a couple of months without much concern.
Unless it were a short drive to a cabin on acreage, or some unique fortification...I'm staying put!
OMO...yours may vary.:yup:
Stay armed...plan ahead...stay safe!
