Should I stay or should I go?
« on: May 15, 2015, 08:19:11 PM »
A really good discussion on bugging in or bugging out can be found on theorganicprpper.ca at the link below.

http://www.theorganicprepper.ca/should-i-stay-or-should-i-go-05102015

Good sound advice and a look at many of the variables that would need to be taken into consideration.
It may never happen. Best to be prepared just in case.

Today there is a eBook being offered for free entitled "Bugging In or Bugging Out?". For those who have not decided which route to take or perhaps at what time bugging out may become your only option it is always good to read as such as possible because issues that you had not really considered can come to light. the link on the Forum is:

The direct link to Amazon is http://www.amazon.com/Bugging-Out-Robert-Paine-ebook/dp/B00O902C7Q

Hopefully I'm not repeating something from one of the websites above.
Be ready to do both. Slave Lake, High River, Paris 1939... BUG OUT!!! (Take your pow pows though)
Quebec Ice storms, Earth Quake, Massive grid loss across a large area (Not to be confused with what Snake Ripkin Did)... Help is on the way and maybe you can help a neighbour or visa versa... BUG IN!!!
Maybe you need to get to safety for the short term then get back to save what can be saved or maybe you are building a new hasienda.
 
Don't have all your eggs in one basket. If it is affordable and possible have some caches.

Could    not agree more about having all your eggs in one basket. Never a good idea and with these kinds of stakes it could be a deadly mistake.

Thank you MM I'm glad to be here.
Life happens and we must man up, deal with it and move on.
Bugging in at the current living arrangement is not an option yet even for the short term emergencies I mentioned, but within a week or so I will be able to get through power outages and big storms.
I am working on a new plan B. The current one will work for short term SHTF bug out, but would also be difficult to get away from if needed. Plan C and D are still in play but are tough roads for the long term.
 
That's reality. Good thing I have learned from the past.
