The SHTF moment has arrived. You get your gear and start to bug out. Feeling good about how you planned, purchased the proper gear, have gas in your vehicle and off you go. Only to find that the plans you made were the same as hundreds if not thousands of others. You find the roads blocked, you can’t communicate with your family or friends and you are hundreds of miles away from your bug out cabin. And it also dawns on you that it is really cold and there was snow for the past week at the cabin. Are you prepared to trek that far with the gear you have. Maybe it might be time to reassess your plan?
We all have some preparedness plans. Many “preppers” think they have the best plan for themselves and their families. But like many other things in life, the unexpected does occur. When laid out in the light of reality, our plans basically look like crap.
It has been a few hours since the big bang and now it is dark. What do you do now? Do you keep going, find a spot to set up camp, heck do you even know where you are? Is now the time to tell your spouse, “I told you so?” Maybe what really is needed is to back up and do something before the SHTF event happens. Over the next few months, we are going to have many posts on the logic of bugging out, the actual efforts and gear needed to give you a greater chance of survival and maybe even some other options instead of treking to the woods with your loved ones.
