What You Can Do NOW to Make Sure You are Ready to Bug Out at a Moment’s Notice

traffic piled up

When SHTF, the first thing on most people's minds is “I have to get out NOW.” We want to get away from the chaos and escape to a place where we have a little more control over the outcome.

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.

What can you do to make sure you and your family are prepared to bug out at a moment's notice? Read on to the next page to learn four things everyone should consider before bugging out.

    I live in a very remote area. My bug out locations are 5, 6, 6, and 6.5 hours away. I have mapped out and tested at least 7 different ways to reach each if them.

    Car. Because I live in such a remote area (30 miles from nearest town) if I have to walk I’ll bug in instead.

    I would consider staying put especially if everyone else headed for the hills.
