I feel obligated to mention that your government may not approve of you stopping by here to peruse the blog entries regarding GUNS. This here Internet thing is not about freedom for any of us; the Internet is about amassing unimaginable wealth for corporate giants. Insofar as governments, foreign or domestic, the Internet is all about surveillance and control. No matter where any of us choose to surf the web, there are always sharks in the water.


NOTICE: To all y'all,

The year 2017 has been and will continue to be extraordinarily CHALLENGING and BUSY for me. Blog entries will likely be even more infrequent than usual until all projects and issues are completed or resolved.

Thanks for stopping by. I really do appreciated it.

Best wishes,

Whether you are bugging out or trekking on back home, what you carry may help or hinder.

As I said over there, bugging out is VERY different from getting home. Even if you have a long commute by American standards, you can probably walk home in a day. Getting home is easy.

What you do if you have to bug-out is very different. Bugging out means that home is no longer safe or viable. Could be a hurricane like Katrina (I used to live in Hurricane country, and I did but out once) could be a toxic waste spill on the highway. Could be a lot of things.

Very well said and all points taken. Some of us may find it impossible to go home before bugging out; like you said, a hurricane / tornado / any other catastrophe can zero out the best game plan. What we carry everyday in our pockets / bags and in the trunk of our cars / behind the seats of our pickup truck / in the cuddy of out boats may be the only tools we have to work with.

I still carry road maps in the cars ... call me old fashioned, but I imagine there are scenarios the government has tagged for taking down GPS.


Thanks Wheelgun.

Best,

Zack
