I can understand I would have never been able to leave Mom.
I don't have that problem any more.
Now I have a wife who's Mom won't prepare because God will take care of her!
Well she's right God won't let me kick her to the curb either.
Since we are going to bug in it just means some more selves & jugs of water.

Should SHTF occure I have three plans depending on how bad the situation is. If it's not that bad I'm going to stay in my current location with my family. If it gets moderately bad then we will go to Danville where all my family are located. If it gets extremely bad then we will go to my aunt's in Catawba which is 30 to 45 minutes away.

My fathe passed on 19 years ago, and my mother left us when I was 6 after declaring that "I have had enough of you Frank, and those damned kids."

So...I am not too worried about her. She sent me a card upon my graduation from the academy reading: "I hope you die like all pigs should"

However....my mother in law...my MOM, will not be left. We are bugging in at my place. I already have a plan in place to get her and her husband here. My best friend lives less than 1/8 of a mile from her home, and his job is to get them here if SHTF. My best friend happens to be a currently serving officer (we met in SWAT school back in 1994).

Together, he and I are a force multiplier.

AZLawman, that is a horrible thing for a mother to do. But, it did make planning much easier.

I honestly haven't put much thought into this since this is all new to me. Thanks for the ideas and it's something that I need to discuss with my family.

The Mind is like a Parachute. It only works when it's open.

No offense to your MIL, but that attitude really pisses me off. If you have fair warning and the ability to take steps to prepare, you're tempting God if you say "God will take care of me" and that doesn't work too well.

I'm not a religious guy. But if a heathen idiot like me understands that then it should be obvious to real followers.

We are too old to bug out. Our best shot is to help keep the town running. We do have some friends that we can get together with for mutual assistance. My biggest worry is our kids and their families which are 600 miles away in the PRK. Not a lot I can do for them unless they can get here on their own. While they do have some weapons, it is not much and their preparedness is dismal. I gave my son a pistol and a shotgun for HD/SD. Everyone in my daughters family knows how to shoot. At least they are close to each other, almost neighbors so they can help each other.

I am stationed on camp Pendleton in ca my bug out plan are to get out of this state as fast as possible I have family in AZ but my bug out location is in NH. I know it's quite a trip but I'll do what I have to do to get there. I plan to get the Rockies then head north into canada and a straight shot east. I have a wife and her family is in AZ my parents as well. our plan basically depends 90% on seeing that shtf is going to happen not leaving while its happening.

I DO applaud you for honorable intentions- but ask that you consider that other folks may have other circumstances.
Have you been talking to my Mom? That's her standpoint on the matter, her and my stepdad have a good deal of land, a bunkhouse built into the barn, kids bunkhouse on the second floor of the house (for the younger ones) and are only needing a power supply to be completely off the grid; they're thinking about a combination of solar panels and wind turbines. She also keeps my stepsister's horse real nice and fat, "just in case" because she doesn't want to have to eat her own horse-she's too fond of her

I'm a Christian and I believe that our fate rests in God's hands. However, let me share this little story:

A great flood was coming and people were leaving the area in droves. However, one family stood fast. "God will protect us" they stated with great conviction.

Well, sure enough, the deluge started and the water rose to their first floor windows. A neighbor came by in his rowboat and told them to jump in and he'd take them to higher ground. "No, God will save us!" they replied. So off the boatman went.

A while later, the water had risen to the second floor and another neighbor came by in a motorboat and told them to get aboard. "No, God will take care of us" they replied.

Soon after, the water had risen so high that the family was on the roof and holding on for dear life. A Coast Guard helicopter hovered overhead and lowered a rescue basket, but again, the family refused the offer of help. "God will save us."

Shortly after the helicopter left, the water was so high that the family finally drowned.

When they got to Heaven, the family asked God why He didn't save them. God's reply was "What were you thinking? I sent you two boats and a helicopter."

'Nuff said.
