Good point Aquahull...That settles it for me! No bugging out.

And you might have dress shoes or work boots on not hiking boots. Different ballgame.
Up until a few years ago, I would walk or run multiple miles per week sometimes with weighted vest for training. After a couple of surgeries and passing 50, I can maybe walk 8 miles one day but I will not be able to recover for the next day. Short term fitness is there but consistent recovery is not. And that would be in ideal conditions not afraid for my life. Most of us (if I remember the age poll that Mish posted a while back) are in our 40-60's. It ain't happening for most of us. Hiking trails in the state park is a hell of a lot different than urban hiking (for most of us especially in the eastern US) Time to rethink this bug out phenomena!!!!
Have you asked the Lord for guidance?............
BuckB Are you an organ donor? If not put your organs where your mouth is. An easy way to end organ shortages is for everyone to sign up to be a donor. You don't need to murder petty criminals for that purpose. - will2
bugging out should be done at the first signof things going sidways. If you are wrong then it becomes a nice weekend trip for the family. You go back home and the neighbors are asking if you had a good time - you say, "yep! the fishing was great!".
Those who wait will have to be very prepared to wait a long time because it will get more dangerous each day until people start dying off from starvation and disease.
What no beer or whiskey at deer camp! That's incomprehensible!
I moved to my BOB ,,,,,,,,I just hope the kids can make it here
That's funny! One of the benefits to making my living as a computer dork is that I do wear hiking boots (with dress pants and a dress shirt) every day and nobody thinks it strange. Although the IT industry is riddled with libtards, most of them are eccentric libtards. So it does allow me to keep modestly prepared even when I am in an urban environment. :D

Leave nothing behind. I will not supply my attackers.
