A lot of people have a bug out plan.But have you really scoped out your evac route?If the major roads are impassable can you still get out?If you are using maps are they up to date?Better yet have you actually drove the routes?Do you have a plan in case vehicle bug out is impossible? Walking, bicycle,motorcycle,boats,aircraft for those with access and skill, could be options.
I would have to think depending on type of problems causing one to bug out many roads will be impassable.Back up routes to your back up routes would be a good idea.Do you have come alongs or other items to help move dead vehicles out of your way?Come alongs,tow straps or chains,etc?
Do you have a dedicated bag in case you must leave most of your stuff?Chose wisely and try out your equipment.Having to live for an extended period with only whats on your back could be rough at best.Even if you aren't a camper I would recommend camping as a test.If you didn't use it replace or remove items.
What do you think? Right on or not?
