10 Bug Out Vehicles That Won’t Let You Down When SHTF

9. Draft Horses & Wagon, Horses or Pack Animals

As some of our troops were surprised to learn in Afghanistan, there is just no substitute for horses and pack animals in certain terrain.

10. Motoped or Bicycle with Trailer

Motoped is on my shopping list. You do not have to be a prepper to appreciate not having to deal with the Department of Motor Vehicles and being able to park in the bike rack.

While you may not have even considered having a boat as a part of your bug out plan, it's always a good idea to have the option. It's the same for bicycles. If you're on a budget both are impeccable for their reliability and ease of repair, making them ideal selections when SHTF.

Having an animal like a horse certainly won't hurt, either. Is your bug out vehicle on this list and are you now prepared for when the grid goes down?

    This is not one of them. Most of these Blazers came back after “Desert Storm” with 1,200 to 2,300 miles on them. The fine desert sand kills them. Drive train and engine.

      I would think most of those CUCV’s were too old to have been in the Gulf Wars. They have been selling them as surplus for decades.

    Article mentions a 4×4 Toyota but pic shows a 2wd model. Personally I’d pick an 85 or newer with the fuel injected 22RE engine.
