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.
