The weather on most of the east coast is supposed to be in the 60's-70's next week. I wonder if this is warm enough to slow the spread of the virus?
All options are tyrants. All options want to take your guns. Support Trump all you want, he's just another statist that wants you controlled.Trump supporters aren't going away, in fact if anything, this re enforces his base as he's tried to get the wall built to keep the scum out that is bringing the crap across the border. Just another thing he'll point out the dems fought him on
Right before Easter, I ask people I know, after I state...since you have turkey for Thanksgiving, do you have rabbit for Easter???staying where i'm at. Fairly isolated, plenty of food, been prepping for the last 15 years, my own chickens, pleanty of beef in the freezer, raise meat rabbits, my own well, generator , plenty of fuel, and a couple young sons that know how to handle themselves still living at home.
a rabbit has more meat per pound than chicken. Believe it nor not, a buck and 3 does can produce as much meat as a cow per year. And do it all in a 10x10 area.Right before Easter, I ask people I know, after I state...since you have turkey for Thanksgiving, do you have rabbit for Easter???
What would happen if somehow your family got split up or one of them was caught. Maybe the backpack gets left behind in a high stress situation. Would you be comfortable with maps of your location being in the hands of someone you dont know? Just something to think about. Somethings are best being memorized.Bullgear...
I can attest to this because I'm actually in WV. If anyone knows anything about your location, you can bet it will be raided at best, occupied at worst. Even having a well worn foot trail can be enough. I have idiots on multiple trail cams. That's why other than my state, I don't post much about details of my location.
That's why I try to have as many different locations as possible. I have routes marked on rite in the rain topo maps for myself and my family to get to our different places and rally points. These places are no joke, they are not the easiest to get to. But we have walked them enough to be confident we can if need be. We have even done it in the dark, rain, snow, etc. A couple times out of necessity due to flooding.
Our strategy has been to immediately take to the woods, avoiding trails, roads or anything convenient where people would likely be. No plan is ever 100%, but I agree with avoiding people. My bug out location is literally located just below a point of a ridge. Nothing permanent there, a cache is buried but is only accessible to us, no markings.
I think being dependant on a bugout location that's on public land i.e. National Forest, State Park, etc. is being unrealistic, unless it's in some remote parts of the country. If your bugout location is in an area that is visited by large amounts of people that have vacation homes, or are there for recreating, hiking, hunting, camping etc. That area will be overwhelmed by those who often visit that area, and know it well. Living off the land, or trying to stay safe and secure in a remote area, will only accept so many humans before it becomes unacceptable. And of course, there's that mindset of idiots without any prior planning, other than let's head for the hills to survive. In many cases, it may be safer to stay in a town of 100K, than to try to survive in difficult environmental conditions of a remote location.
