Where To Bug Out To?

where to bug out toNow that you’ve decided to bug out, where to bug out to?  Obviously this question should be answered well before you actually bug out.

As with all questions, the answer is based on certain situations.  If escaping approaching wildfires, nearby wooded areas probably wouldn’t be a good idea.

So, where to bug out to?

Depending on your resources and connections, this answer will be different for many.  Some may have a cabin in the woods, stocked with food and supplies, ready to go.  Others may choose to meet up with others, who may have that cabin in the woods, or end up bugging in at a friend or family member’s home.  Wherever you decide, make sure that location has the proper supplies and resources.  Food, water, and shelter are the concerns here.

Ideally a very remote location, accesible with little difficulty, in an area that you’re familiar with, would be the best place to escape to and be safe.  As with other preparations, having a plan and executing that plan is crucial.  Bugging out with no destination may prove more dangerous than just staying home.

    Family may include extended family, really good friends, or even just like minded people willing to unite. When ONLY SURVIVAL MATTERS, staying in the desert with close family would not be an option I would accept. When you have several families involved, the cost of a reasonably remote safe bug out location is then spread amongst several wage earners or retirement income folks. Because you want to pre-stock the location (an old farm or whatever) with essentials (food firearms munitions, animals, implements, diesel, long term rations, you will want one or more families to take up residency at the location for security between now and when the location may be needed. Retired, family or others in your group who are then not limited by the location of a job, are the ideal folks for this. I like the idea of a place at least 300 miles from a metropolitan area so that most” people with only a tank of gas, cannot arrive there. Of course you make sure you always have adequate fuel on hand. You should select a location not too far from existing medical services, such as a small community with a clinic. There are many other consideration, but just be aware you don’t need to accept trying to exist where you area.
