What events would need to happen for you to pack up and bug out? Let's say you're at work, what news would it take for you to call the family, meet up, pack up and head for your bug out location?

Examples:
The dollar crashes to a value of nearly zero.
A major US city gets hit with non nuke bomb.
Grid goes down for unknown reason.
EMP, natural or otherwise, hit US.
Terrorist attach in or near your city.
ETC

Well, if a nuke hits our city, bugging out is moot. Financial disaster, EMP, or terrorist attack: we're better off bugging IN where our resources are. I'm at 1400 feet ASL on a hilltop here, so a flood will be a Noah event and any kind of bugging will be out. Tornadoes and earthquakes are statistically out of the question where I live.

I guess the only event to evict me is a house fire. Otherwise I'm prepared to fight to the death in defense of those I love.

Edited to add: welcome to the forum.

First off:
Welcome to the group from Arizona.
Land of Sun, Surf, and Sand.
Ok, I lied, no surf, but enough sand
to make all the dang sand bags I’ll ever need!
Grab a stump and sit a spell. I’d offer you a beer,
but I don’t know if you’re of legal drinking age.
So why don’t you tell us a bit about yourself, like what
state your from and anything else you might share.

I'd have to have flood water lapping at the back door.
Just not physically able to bug out without transportation.
No place to go for sure, but I have an offer that would work for all.

Anything that would compromise the safety of my home. Most impending weather events would qualify. The recent flooding in our state has driven this point home.
There's no good reason to leave a perfectly good home if others can still get to it.

I've always planed on bugging in and i believe I have the property to do so. I am dug in like a tick on a **** hound. I would take an overwhelming force to dislodge me and then it may be too late.

Quack - I'm 35 and live in the Great State of Wisconsin. I live in a big city (there are only 3) and have a bugout cabin/5 acres up in the bluffs of the Mississippi. I consider myself a prepper with a lot of book knowledge but little actual experience in practicing those skills I've read about.

Welcome to the forum WI Survivor. We've got some great folk from WI.

We're at our "Alamo" for lack of a better description so no "buggin' out"...I hope to die of old age with Mrs Slippy beside me and tons of food, water, ammo, tools, equipment to pass on to our sons. If for some crazy-assed situation, if I'm over-run then I hope to die knee deep in a pile of brass with a smokin hot barrel and hundreds of zombies/muslimes/socialists dead at my gate.

Well, welcome. Born and raised a short distance from Oshkosh. When I got out of the Air Force I settled in NW suburbs of Chicago. Finally got out on retirement. Except for the cold of winter (which I hate) a nice place to be.

The first signs of wide spread Martial Law.....realistically. Or signs of a natural disaster thats too close to home.
Overall...I want off the grid now.
