It would be good to have a bug out location in the mountains (Appalachians) along with locations in other places. But make sure you pick a place ahead of time and know the area. I would suggest a National Forrest if you don't know anyone that would take you in. Do not go into the mountains and just wonder around on private property. If you go into the wrong holler you won't leave. Mountain folks tend to take trespassing a little more personal than the rest of us. And be prepared to for everyone else to have the same idea.

The Northern Rocky Mtns. are another world. They are a great expanse on top of North America. They can be so high you need oxygen tanks for extended stays. The Temperatures in August are below freezing and the snow never melts.
Getting enough food up on top to last is nearly impossible. And even if you are not pushed above the snow line winter at 7,000 feet can be a killer. The game moves down ahead of the first heavy snow and getting to fire wood is almost impossible. The snow piles up 30 feet deep and the temperatures hold at -30 degrees for weeks on end. And then it really gets bad.

Well if it's an environment that you are familiar with and comfortable in. I've spent enough time in the mountains to know that's it's the last place I want to go. Haha. Backwoods I can do but mountain life is just not my cup of tea.

Several million people have a "plan" of having NO plans, beyond "bugging out to the mountains". Gonna be a huge pile of bodies.

Going somewhere that you do not have detailed intel, without support or supplies, in an area where routine life can be hard in GOOD times.....

And have you ever seen the movie Deliverance?

How would you get from point A to B with roads clogged/ closed. no fuel for sale, coupla million others with same idea, planning to pass thru area that belongs to someone else that does NOT want you there......

Me? I'm bugging IN.

Sound like a good place to "bug-out" to?
No, I've spent some time from Rocky Mt. backpacking to camping in the desert and half the National Parks. Mother nature is not kind to tenderfoots and unless you know what you are doing, your stay there will be short. (RIP) You can always hide out better in a large crowd than standing out on the horizon with a camp fire.
