    If you had to evacuate...



    If a natural disaster were to happen in your area and you had to evacuate, how long would it take you to put together all your weapons and ammunition?

    Is this something you are prepared for? Would it be a priority? Why? Why not?

    Depends on:

    1. Why I'm buggin' out.
    2. What the next weeks' weather forecast is.
    3. Where I'm buggin' to.
    4. How long I'm gonna be gone.
    5. My mode of transportation to get to where I'm going.

    Our camper trailer stays loaded so pulling together last minute essentials and pets for load out in the SUV is about 2 hours. We live in a semi rural area and a hurricane is probably or biggest threat that might cause us to leave. That being said we do have 2 bug out locations, (friends rural properties one 20 miles away other 550 miles), and they have our 90 day supplies of long term storage food, meds, ammo and weapons stashed away just it case.

    If I am at Slippy's Place On The River Near The Lake, I can evacuate my firepower in less than 10 minutes.

    If I am at Slippy Lodge, NOTHING will cause me to evacuate.

    If the nuclear power plants about 5 of them north of Chicago on the Eastern Wisconsin border where to melt down that would be my natural disaster to bug out with everything.

    Like everybody else it'll probably take me about 2 hours give or take. And that scenario I'm still trying to figure out where we would go. It would either be North to the upper peninsula or South East at Ohio and further south if needed. Probably at a campground or public land.

    All? Not likely.

    A sufficient stockpile? A few minutes, as the ammo is categorized in ammo cans and firearms are within my quick stepping distance.

    I'd like to think we could be loaded up and driving away in 2 hours. If the wife helps me attach the truck and trailer (she guides me back) it could take 2.5, if I did it myself I think we could do it in 2 hours. One of my rules is that our vehicles never get below 3/4 tank of gas, for this very reason.
