One of the core principles in the world of prepping and survival is our ability to escape a disaster or collapsed world. We have to have a method of getting out of dodge ASAP when things get to dangerous for our own survival. This is a very popular method that is called the bugout. Now, for many the bugout starts with a bag and ends with a fantasy about having a place to take that bag. Unfortunately most people do not have the money to fund another location outside of their own home. Land might be out of the question as well.
