Re: Four hours to bug out!
Good list.

Why not keep this stuff in your car permanently? Then you can bug out in minutes instead of hours?
 Quoting: PeterWiggin


What about bugging in? Simply staying at home gives me a tremendous advantage and covers all the OP’s bases.

Re: Four hours to bug out!
This is an exercise in stupidity.

No one is going anywhere.

WHERE would you go? How will you live? How long will you stay where you are? Or will you need to keep moving around?

If you are not "skilled" in living in the wild, or hunting for your own food, you're not going to figure it out in a SHTF scenario.

How would you deal with all the hoardes of crazies running around trying to shoot, loot and hurt anyone who gets in their path?

How far do you have to "run" till you feel you are "safe?" Prolly only one tank full of gas, cause you won't want to stop for gas. Oh, that's right, you're going to carry gas in gas cans with you! THAT won't take up any space in your already limited area to bring your stuff with you!

Those of you with "plans to bug out," really need to think it through. It won't be FUN, it won't be "romantic," or flashy - like in some freakin' movie. It'll be about 1000x WORSE than Mad Max.

Cause that was fake.

This will be real.

LIFE OR DEATH.

It is not normally fun in the books or movies either. Just the same people throughout history have bugged out and many never come back. Look at 3rd world governments that collapse and then people bug out to the 1st world. What happens if it is only your country or a couple of countries that collapse? What if all the modern western nations collapse but 3rd world still exists?

I always think about those poor people who had to evacuate in Ukraine after Chernobyl. The Army was like get on the bus and don't take anything, you will be back... 30 years later.

I don't see any real world situation where we would need to bug out, unless you live by a nuke plant or on or near a military base.

Seriously friend, you are so far out of your depth there is no hope at this point.
No one will be going anywhere.

Yeah, your not even on the same page as the rest of the class.

You can’t carry what you need, it has to already be there.
You should have at least three locations.

What about regional bug out locations? 400+ nuke plants in the USA. One nuke plant could wipe out a whole region. Upwind and downwind does not matter because wind patterns change seasonally. Just expanding on the situation.
