I think intel is a big gap in most preppers’ plans. I am a big fan of a solid intelligence plan. I think we need a serious bit of help when it comes to getting an understanding of survival intelligence.
We are going to be making serious decisions that could result in life or death. It’s a terrifying thing when you really think that each turn and path you take during an SHTF scenario could be your last turn. The more informed you can be the more effective you will be in that decision-making process.
Let’s look at how and why you can gather intel on a wilderness location
Hunting and Fishing
One of the most important reasons to gather intel on a wilderness location is to find the hunting and fishing spots that are in hiding.
We all want to find that perfect spot and make that kill or catch that fish. Most success comes from understanding the area and the habitat. You need to prepare for this. It takes an understanding of things like elevation and types of land.
If you use things like satellite imagery you can certainly discern a good spot to hunt and fish from a bad one. You can also
When it comes to a bugout location, its all about intel. Most people probably do more bugout intel in the digital form than in the physical. The bugout location should be something you create digital intel for and you go get physical intel on, as well.
Another important note on intel is to take the time to observe something like a bugout location form a distance. If you are moving from one location to another in a disaster you should certainly spend some time scouting that location from a distance and building your own intel in the moment.
