In this episode we talk about picking a bug out location. In an article I just wrote I explained everything that we are thinking about from security, alternative power and resources. Here is an excerpt from that article…
“Not all of us can afford the typical bug out location that we hear about all the time, but with the right amount of thought and planning picking a bug out location that doesn’t meet the “ideal” specifications could actually turn out to be better than buying a plot of land on top of a mountain.
In a perfect world it would be great to have no budget and no time frame to deal with, but that is just not reality for most of us. just because we don’t have a lot of money does not mean we need to plan on bugging out to a campground somewhere, it just means we need to put some more thought into where our money is going before we invest it.”
This weeks Survival Tip
Having realistic expectations when prepping is critical top your survival. 10 miles “as the crow flies” is far different than the distance you will actually need to travel because of unexpected detours or roadblocks.
This article from Tin Hat Ranch goes into some great detail about being realistic when traveling on foot. We can also apply these ideas to other parts of prepping.
I also wrote an article about being physically is an important part of prepping and being prepared for a SHTF event. The article is titles “Are you physicaly ready for SHTF” and you can read it here.
Be Prepared For Everything
I also talked about my book that was just published to Amazon and has been very well received. You can find the book here. As I wrote in the description of the book it is not all about doomsday and as the title says we should be prepared to face anything. Here is part of that article…
“Preparedness should be a mindset, not a fad. To become a seasoned prepper we need to start from ground zero and work our way up, and we need to do it in a way that doesn’t put us in the poor house. Preparing is also very personalized, there is no one way to build your food storage and no one way to build your bug out bag. All of our situations are different and we need to plan accordingly.”
