WI folk bug out plan? Think the time has come to organize
Hopefully will not have unwanted attention drawn but I want to reach out to the community to see if we can help each other in the possible worst case scenario

Millions of people from milwaukee, chicago, minneapolis, and even detroit will head to rural wisconsin and the UP, so I can't imagine theres any good bug out plan that involves bugging out in WI. Best to head out west somewhere if TSHTF.

I'd drive south and west, it's much warmer with longer growing season.

Nothing up there but woods, huge nasty bogs and sandy pine barrens, unless you're already set up on a lake with a greenhouse, forget it.

You experts are absolutely right. There are no places to bug out in Wisconsin, particularly in the north. It is cold and you will starve in the winter. The people will not welcome you. You would be much happier in Iowa, Missouri, out west, or in a fema camp.

That wasn't directed at you - that was sarcasm directed at anyone from Minnesota or Chicago who might think it was a good idea to bug out in Wisconsin ;)

All joking aside, there are only a few bridge across the Mississippi that are already jam packed now (Hastings, Hudson, Still water, Taylors falls). I highly doubt they will stay open for long without completely clogging up. Some will go around way up north and around, or down south and cross at Winona, but most will not I think because of lake of gas. They will be on foot before they cross the river, and the "golden horde" won't make it too far in. I honestly think Twin Cities people will end up going North (summer) or South (winter) on the I-35 corridor, or west on either 90 or 94.

Chicago will be even tougher. I don't think many will opt for Most going north will try to go on the Northwest tollway and will get jammed up in Beloit/Janesville or if they definitely will not make it past that Madison. The back roads are much better as the small resort towns like Lake Geneva will be overrun and impassable. They might be able to swing west and go around Rockford and come up in SW Wisconsin. The roads suck there, especially if you don't know where you are going. Also, if you make it that far west, why not just go to Iowa or out west?

Milwaukee will have the same difficulty with Madison as Chicago refugees have, so you will most likely have to travel either 43 or 41. 43 will be a road to nowhere as it will get stopped up at Green Bay. 41 is the best bet, and you could either cut over to north central Wisconsin, or go to North East Wisconsin or the UP.

It looks easy on a map, until you actually make the trips and see it in person on a holiday weekend, which is the best approximation of a large scale evacuation we currently have to go by.

Thank you for the intelligent response

Just not sure if laying low and bugging in might be a better response

Stay off 43 north and the 94 downtown exchange. Go south than west and stay to the back roads till 41 north of Menominee falls and if that is backed up try to get across 60 to 43 north but get on 57 north at port washington. The infected will be pouring over the banks along 43 north from downtown to bradley road.

You better have weapons cause your gonna need em in Milwaukee

 Quoting: JimBru


Yup. Northwestern Milwaukee area suburbs here. I'll shelter in place. I can fell three or four trees and isolate the roads into the area I live in. Got food, a well, generator capacity, etc. so this is as good as anywhere I might try to get to plus I know the area. Too many supplies to take with, etc., etc.
There is nothing quite as compelling as a bad idea whose time has come...
