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,
