What comes to mind when you think about the bugout?
You probably envision your family struggling through harsh conditions to get to a predetermined location that will provide safety and shelter from the current conditions at your own home. That is often how the traditional bugout appears. However, what if there was a different version of the bugout a community-driven bugout migration.
This version of the bugout would include a collection of community members all leaving town and possibly going to the same location! Let’s talk about it.
Strength in Numbers
The biggest benefit to participating in bugout migration is the strength in numbers. We all worry about bugging out and running into a small group of bad guys that wish to do you harm. That could be a nightmare. However, a group of 30, some armed, is going to be less of an opportunity for a band of bad guys.
This security in numbers will go along way in a truly collapsed environment.
The Power of Community
Not only will a migration present you with security, it will also offer up comradery. The old saying 2 heads are better than one, well, 20 heads are better than two. Of course, you will have to have a group that has some independent personal responsibility so you aren’t carrying the weight of everyone else, however, dealing with problems and dealing with the nature of the collapse and resources is much better with some community members.
If things get back normal or if you decide to be the driving force to bring things back to normal, you might like a community to go home to. Your community could be just that option. Who decides when a bugout ends? It would certainly be interesting to repopulate the community that you had by bringing them all back home or setting up a new community with the people you already know.
Now, this whole thing is no easy endeavor, however, there is nothing easy about a bugout and the survival to follow.
