If power grids get knocked out, how can you bug out without a car?
Probably a stupid question, and im sure ill be the first to die, but our bug out is several hours away. Is there anything besides a horse?


hf

Edit to add I have 3 little ones coming alOng with us. And we have to go through about 4 hours of appalachian on 75.

This is why bugging-in should always be your first option.

Lol.
I heard about a jeep, but is it a certain kind or year? I'd definitely buy one. Of course driving up 75 might pose a bit of a problem. ;)

If you wait until TSHTF, you will never make it there, so don't even bother trying. It would be better to make as many preperations that you can at home now.

The only way to make it there safely is to get there BEFORE TSHTF. This is the problem with alot of people's plans. They buy a place in the mountains, stock it up, then go back to the city and wait for the event, and that will be too late!

Re: If power grids get knocked out, how can you bug out without a car?
I was going to suggest a bicycle with a tag-a-long carrier that you tow behind ... but 7 hours away is a LONG distance, going through the mountains is TOUGH, and with 3 little ones it is TOUGHER still.

If it is one adult and 3 kids ... well ... you are probably shit out of luck. If it is 2 adults though 2 bikes with 2 tag-a-longs should allow you to make 20 to 30 miles a day even in the mountains (on flat land you should be able to make 40 to 50 miles a day if nice weather easy), assuming you can somehow use the expressways. Back roads are more problematic because they are both longer in distance AND more ups and downs.

Why no car?
In the city and can't have one?
... or can't afford one?

A complete rethink on your planning for getting out of your local "Dodge" may be in order.

Get an older motorcycle with a kick start, mid 70's or before. Forget about a car............the roads will not be passable when they are filled with cars that won't run.

Your only bet is a motorcycle, but with 3 kids........I don't know how you will manage that one.

Better to go to your location BEFORE TSHTF.

We managed for thousands of years without cars i am sure we will manage for the most part. If you are in the city best not to use a car to escape anyway, better to use the sewers even than the roads. Get out of the city in the sewers and steal a car when out of the city. And steal an old car, not one with a computer, lol.

Or even motor bikes. If there is a river through the city use a boat to get out.
