When the SHTF – what do I do? Part 10

The SHTF now! What the hell do I do when I have to get out to assure my safety and the highways are blocked and I can’t take but what I can carry and where do I go?

bugging-out-on-footThis is an “oh crap” moment and I will be as concise as I possibly can here.

This is where a BUG OUT BAG is necessary.

Look this is a touchy subject because being on the move you are going to run into people even if the size of your town is 1,200 folks.

Type: Backpack

Weight of Load: 60 pounds – gear and food for 3 weeks


This is an average pack for a grown adult male who is in decent physical health who is assisted with a cane or walking stick which if trained in its use can be a devastating weapon breaking bone or crushing a skull.

Distance traveled in one trip moving non-stop – 5 to 10 miles

Vehicular Transportation – If you can throw your stuff in your car, van or truck do it and drive to a great location within 30-minutes of where you live.

Pedestrian Transportation – Bicycle or motorized transport

Bipedal Transportation – On foot carrying a load

Destination – The closest large heavily wooded area with water nearby – the plan is to pre-plan and map out your evacuation route.

Escape Route – follow direct secondary roadways not major country roads to travel, move at night under the cover of darkness using avoidance and evasion when at all possible. Keep to the shadows and chose a moonless night to make your move being detected will be your downfall.

    This design is incredible! You obviously know how to keep a reader amused.
    Between your wit and your videos, I was almost moved to start my own blog (well, almost…HaHa!) Excellent job.

    I really loved what you had to say, and more than that, how you presented it.

    Too cool!

    This is the right web site for anybody who wants to find out about
    this topic. You understand so much its almost tough to argue with you (not that I personally will need to…HaHa).
    You certainly put a fresh spin on a topic that’s been discussed for many years.

    Excellent stuff, just excellent!

    An outstanding share! I’ve just forwarded this onto a colleague who was conducting a little
    research on this. And he in fact bought me breakfast because I stumbled upon it
    for him… lol. So allow me to reword this….

    Thanks for the meal!! But yeah, thanks for spending the time to discuss this subject here on your
    internet site.
