    Question Bugging out..

    The Fallacy of Bugging Out - Are You Prepared to Be a Refugee?

    Lot of talk on "Bugging Out."
    Hurricane, flood, common sense, bug out.
    But this guy tells the down side of it, pretty darn good.
    For those in the city, their may be no other option than to bug out.
    For those in rural A.O.s.
    Where are you really going to "bug out" to, that is better than your own well prepared home?
    Long read. But he kind of nails it.

    Excellent read!!!!!!! Thanks for posting that 4th. My wife and I have talked at length about this subject, and while we have "bugout bags" etc.... ready to go, that is an ABSOLUTE last resort!!!!!!!!! Only if the barbarians are at the gate, and staying in our home means certain death. Short of that, we are staying put, and defending whats ours to the best of our ability. Biggest thing we want is to be left alone. Keep a low profile, and fly under the radar.

    The best way to win a fight, is to avoid it in the first place!!!

    Still a good idea to have a "BOB" bag ready, and keep it with you. The only difference between "Bugging Out" and "Getting Home" during SHTF is your direction of travel. How many people work more than a few miles away from their home? How long would it take to walk it? Could you make it with just the clothes on your back and the last Snickers Bar in the breakroom snack machine?

    this is correct.

    you got to have a place to bug out to. the old days of going out to the woods and surviving are long gone.

    now if you had a gulf-stream 5 tanked up on the ramp with the engines warmed up you might could bug out to OZ or Tahiti. i figure some of those crooks that have that TV game "your fired" might have a few parked on the ramp--

    they may have a bad day coming--cause there may be people waiting for them--on that ramp.

    now why do you think all these politicians have us tax payers BUY THEM big fat airliners to fly around with on OUR DIME?

    Hey that's a good idea. I'm about 3 miles from the "downtown" airport in my AO. It's mostly general aviation and corporate jets/turboprops. We can hang out there and comandeer a "last flight out"!!! LOL.

    The bloke who wrote that article pretty much nailed it, and has stated what I have planned on for so long. I live in the middle of no where for a reason,I don't plan on leaving. I have said many times I find great fail in living in cities. The fact that only 17% of the population of the country now lives in rural areas shows a sad trend. At any time major cities are less than two weeks away from famine and chaos. My only concern is that I have to commute to one for work and I don't want caught in it if something happens.
