A solid bug out plan is one of the most important aspects of a city preppers planning. You have to have a means of getting away from the city in a serious disaster. There is no other option. You will not live in a city for long.
Resources will disappear and you will be left to scavenge. People will take advantage of you and will likely kill you! This is not to scare you it’s just to help you understand that you are at risk.
There are a number of ways that you can plan a bug out. We have three methods for you below.
Traditional Bug Out
Obviously one of the best and most effective methods of getting away from the city in a disaster is to be sure that you have a bug out plan. The bug out is often glossed over as though its something easy to pull off and just takes a place to go and a bag.
It’s going to be much more of an issue than that. Make a bug out plan that is built around multiple routes, short and long-distance bug outs and all the details.
Mass Bug Out
The mass bug out or the migration bug out is something to consider. This option is particularly helpful in the city situation. The mass bug out is a matter of getting out of dodge in large numbers. A larger group of people, maybe a bunch of people from your apartment building, The larger the group the better because you are harder to intimidate and take advantage of.
Cities offer up a bunch of non-traditional routes that could be taken advantage of for the bug out. Things like railways and subways or even sewers could be methods for getting out of the city. This is a big deal. Remember, when you have to get away from a collapsing city, these things are going to be very important.
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.
