Bugging out is one of the most popular topics in the prepper community, but most of the discussion is about what to put in your bug out bag. Although this is important, we ought to spend more time talking about where to go when bugging out. After all, you can’t just wander into the wilderness with a 72-hour bag and expect to live off the land forever. If you don’t have somewhere to go, you’re not going to make it.
This article by Bill White from Survivopedia focuses on places to bug out in the United States. The great thing about this article is it doesn’t simply list five places to go; it explains the things you need to consider when choosing a bug out location including: defensibility, concealability, affordability, resources, local population, nuclear risk, and distance from your home.
Bill writes, “I don’t care who you are or where you live, bugging out is one of the most complex scenarios for any prepper. The huge number of factors that you have to consider, prepare for and execute in an effective bug out make bugging out a logistical and organizational nightmare. More, these factors tend to change as times goes by, due to social and political issues that impact the natural resources and landscape in different areas of our country.” Follow the link below to keep reading.
