The bugout is a massive undertaking. It’s often underappreciated. 

Bugging Out – Will You Make It There? — When disaster happens, will you stay or will you go? How will you decide which to do or when it’s time to do it? If you decide to bug-out, where will you go and how will you get there? There are lots of questions and they require lots of thought, BEFORE ‘it’ happens.

Not the bugout itself but the planning that goes into it is a big deal. Most of the time it’s oversimplified. That is because we are under the spell of being better prepared than we really are. That’s a huge problem. 

A big part of knowing if you will make it to your bug out location is to have a very effective plan. You need a plan from the start to the finish and that means it needs to be practiced. This is the part where most Americans stop their bugout preparations. 

Here are three things to add to your bugout plan that will assure you get there!

Multiple Routes

The quickest way a bugout can fail is if you start out on your trip and find that the path to the bugout is blocked and you cannot get around the blockage. So much for that idea! 

You need multiple routes to your location and its arguable that you need multiple locations! 

Food Caches 

Is it true that we can go a couple of weeks without food before we die? Yes. Is it true that the average American will be useless after a couple of days without food? That is mostly true, also. We dont suffer that very often. 

Have some food caches buried along your route? These are very important and will not only feed people but boost morale. 

Rally Points 

If something crazy happens and your group gets separated you can find each other by predetermined rally points or locations where you and your loved ones will meet up if things go wrong. These should be easy to discern and get to from a distance. 

The bug out is anything but simple. Just understand that. Put in the work and you will get to where you are going.
