I have been thinking about bugging out recently and I have come to the conclusion that if SHTF really does happen the roads will be blocked with cars. People will be driving so fast to get to where they need to go that people will crash and cause hold ups and road blocks.
If that happens and you need to get to where you need to be then it will be real difficult with a car or truck. You always have the bug out bike option, but with you may be limited as to what you can carry.
Then I found an instructable that shows you how to build a hovercraft… Yes, a hovercraft! With one of these you could safely go from land to water to land again with no speed reduction and have a decent soft ride. I know this type of DIY might not suit everyone but it is a very viable form of transport if the roads are packed with cars and you need to get out of Dodge. One negative I can think of is they will be fairly loud, depending on the engine. Check out the tutorial in the link below.
