To bug out, to stock up food, to change your location...whatever. What would be THE news/message for you to hear so that you shut off the computer and take ACTION?

i base all my preparations, all probably futile, on that scenario.

i'm ready to run to the mountains at a moments notice, but the wave may well be higher than my mountains here, so that's me fucked, but it won't be for the want of trying

threads all over here about immediate troop movements. I live in a small town so don't have to much to worry about. But still, I'm going to immediately fill my gas tank and then hit the grocery store.

The funny thing is that most people won't take action until they have a legitimate reason to run for their life.

And on a more serious thought?

How long until you switch to evacuation/defiance mode?

Say a meteor strikes a big city, or matrial law is declared in your state...will be be glued to the TV or computer - or would you take it as that one last sign to switch to the next level of your own peparedness, whatever that might be?

Does it make sense to run before your life is in danger? Do you slam on the brakes in anticipation of someone pulling out in front of you even though you don't see them?
