    Groups Or Solo

    I am new to the whole prepping community. I have several friends whom Ive found out that are of like mind. Would you think that bugging out in groups and trying to survive in a group deal is best or should it be every man for himself. I know it depends on a lot of stuff, like food amounts, what each person's skills are, and where your located.

    As you mention, it depends on the group.

    Well...that is such a complex question, I'm not sure it could be answered on just a simple forum post. Questions such as, bugging out or bugging in? If you bug out, where are you going? What is your current situation? What are the other members' situation? What do they bring to the table? What do you bring?

    Not trying to rain on your parade, but first thing I'd do is develop a plan for events that could realistically happen to you. Maybe start local, then regional, and so on.

    Good place to start. Feeling Lost? Start Here if You're New to Prepping

    I would never think of joining a group, until I had ALL my ducks in a row.

    Solo it is . When the SHTF I don't think you can trust anyone.
    Solo means my wife and I.

    Each member of a group must meet the minimum supply requirements, if not there will be ill feelings. What if everything is set for the group and one member wants to bring his sister and her family along? So many questions. But yes, in numbers there is safety, maybe.
    I really want one of these!Hidden Content

    There is safety in numbers, but, at the end of the day, it really is every man for himself. Especially if your group consists of young males. Just watch your back.

    Given today's societal and political norms, I wear it (people pissing me off a lot) as a badge of honor.
