If you plan on bugging out with a family and reaching a location that is over 20 miles away, you should really consider a bugout vehicle. If your family is capable of covering a mile in an hour, probably more, in distress you should be prepared that it will take you two. Traveling on foot with kids is no picnic. Its a very ugly thing and having a BOV and an unhindered route is a much better method to bugging out.
This article explores the idea of using a camper as a bug out vehicle. Its a very interesting situation to consider. you effectively have a bugout vehicle that acts as a shelter on wheels if need be. Do you enjoy the idea of that? For me it seems like a great opportunity. Of course, it s a big gas guzzling machine that has limits.
