I think this is valuable information to know, a lot of us have plans to bug out but a lot of us have not. What if you got trapped or you couldn’t make it to your bug out location. This information may help.
Bugging in is where you hunker down at your home or another safe place. Is bugging in better than bugging out? That’s up to you to decide. How long do we bug in for? That’s the question of the century!
The government says 3 days. I have preps to get me through 1 year. My answer is a minimum of 2 weeks and then keep prepping for longer as time and money allow. Start with 3 days then work up from there. Don’t let this question prevent you from making progress.
If you are older, do not have a bug out location/shelter or are disabled then bugging out is a no go. This article in the link below should help you learn a little more about bugging in and actually see that it is not as bad as some may make it out to be.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
