One of the most horrific events you can face is trying to escape on foot when the SHTF.
Why is it a horrific event? Because everyone is trying to escape too and when you have to leave on foot there may be others who will try to stop you to rob you of whatever you are carrying.
Here is one time you’d best choose a quick path to safety that can be reached in as little as 5-hours walking time (12-20 miles). The average person will walk with a light pack on average of 4-miles per hour and in steeper terrain a little less.
Map out an escape route to safety through the safest routes you can find. If you have vehicle drive the route numerous times and have an alternate route for additional safety.
Traveling Light – this is always a good idea not to overly encumber yourself when fleeing on foot, a light daypack with assorted goods to get you safely away is all you need.
Protection – having something to protect yourself is human nature and you want something that requires little maintenance and will not jamb – a revolver is my choice and 100 rounds of ammo.
Extra Items – As an added precaution you should take along a water purification bottle.
