This just awakened something in me. Going to get everything together tonight just in case I need to bug out.

Thanks

Bugging out always makes me wonder... Where exactly is everyone going to go??? Do people actually think they'll be able to hit the packed roads and drive to some remote place? Don't get me wrong, I've got my preps and a bugout bag, but I'm planning on bugging in... For a while at least. Unless something happens that forces me to leave.

A lot of people, I would say most people, would not know how to use a lot of the stuff in your list. Snare wire? Axe? Rifle?

Even if a noob could bring down a deer, they would not know how to field dress it, skin it, nor butcher it.

Noobs would be better off staying put, having a hidden blast proof panic room equipped with the necessities of survival.

Just sayin!

Seriously. Just to be on the safe side (better to be prepared for nothing than unprepared for something).

Make you prep check lists. Have your bug-out bags ready to go.

Firearms / snare wire / fishing supplies / hunting knives / axes / saws / rope / coleman stove / rice / beans / flour / sugar / salt / spices / seeds / pasta / canned goods / meats / warm cloths / blankets / matches / soap / tooth brush / TP / clean water / pots / pans / dishes / survival info suitable for your area / gas / stabilizer / compass /
there is plenty more you should/could have on your check list.

If you have a place to "escape to" be ready to get there.

Not meant to scare...just to prepare.

A disaster could strike anytime, anywhere.
 Quoting: Wash


This is good advice. I have some of the above...unfortunately I don't have a firearm. I have a crossbow and a pellet gun with predator pellets...which we will take both of, if needed. Parachute cord is another good item.
 Quoting: katballoo


Crossbow is a great hunting tool. Pellet guns can be good for small game (Rabbits, squirl, dove, pheasant...). You should be in good shape with those tools.

Not me. As soon as I know TSHTF, I'm gone.

Re: I'm makin' my list, checkin' it twice, ready to bug-out with my rifle and rice...
Well I always prepare for the coming winter where I live the power can be out for days or weeks in a bad storm. So I am prepared. However I do have BOB's for the kids and us just in case one never knows if we will have to leave for any apparent reason. Like you said best to be ready just in case. Of course with my luck if I wasn't prepared we would have something bad happen and be unable to get what was needed. I have seen what 1 inch of snow can do to the state of NC and its not pretty. Wait until they get a foot of snow. Of course I was brought up in Maine so I know what 6 feet of snow in a storm is like, therefore I prep. So if something happens due to 2012, I am ready for it.

Good point. Skinning and cleaning game is not difficult once you've done it a couple times, but I'd not want to learn on my own in the bush.

TIP: Learn to skin and clean rabbits first. Then move to larger game.

That's good, but most people don't have cabins. How do you plan on getting there if the roads are all turned into parking lots? I've got a nice mountain bike but I can't carry many supplies on it. I always figured it would be best to stay put for a while, maybe a week or two, before wandering out. Let the crazy people kill each other off first.

Depending on where you live (climate), you could start in a tent deep in the forest and build a decent shelter within a few days...a week. Keep at the insulating through the winter. In Spring (if the world has gone to shit) start builing a new stong shelter to live in.

It can be done by anyone with a little skill, knowledge and some tools.

When I was 15 me and 2 buddies built a 2 level log shelter in a couple long days (might have been 3 or 4 days ?). enough room on the bottom for 2 beds, 1 bed on top. insulated with a ton of mud and moss. We went back to it for years when fishing in that area. I'd bet it's still standing (20 years later).

Now here is something, I have to wonder about. If, just saying if something does happen the 21st. If your cars and trucks don't work what is your other options? I know we may be stuck for a bit, luckily though we lived off grid for 3 years in Maine and know how to live that way. But with my youngest child having asthma, and being autistic I am going over tons of options for travel. It may be hard doing it on foot.

Most people who bug-out will die unless they have a definite location to bug-out to that is fairly close to their current location.

Bugging-out and BOB (bug-out bags) were never intended for for it commonly thought of as a mean of living in the wild. Their intention was to take supplies with you, and using planes, trains, and cars out of the emergency zone to a safe zone.

In a true collapse, a BOB will be of dubious benefit. It means being prescient and hopefully in the back of a vehicle. Being on foot with a BOB in Winter would be a nightmare.

I hope you're packing lots of water and food.

I think everyone would have a different answer to this question depending on their situation.

I'd hike with my fam and my dogs. My camp is 125kms away. We could be there in 2-3 days. We could set up camp (out of site) for the nights. We are used to hiking and camping so we could do this if nessesary.
I'd have to lighten my supply load for sure, but I have a good stash at my camp so we'd still be okay.

The two most basic pieces of camping gear are a tent and a sleeping bag. If you don't have those in your gear, you're dead in the Winter.
