Whether this is to a relative's house, a cabin in the woods, or a buried bunker, it makes no difference if you are unprepared to hit the road at a moment's notice. The window of opportunity for evacuation is very small, and before long thousands of like-minded individuals will be flooding the highways.
Even if you bug out the moment an emergency threatens, there is still a chance you will be stuck on the road for days, trying to navigate around thousands of stalled cars and alternate routes. It is for this reason that it's important to be prepared for every eventuality beforehand.
