I think the "yadda-yadda, blar-blar" is so 2012. The new Tactical Whatchamacallits have a plasma strobe in the 40-Watt range.

Live to fight another day is good for the warrior but not so good for the citizen if they have nothing left to return home to. My home is truly my castle and without it, this kingdom isnt worth living in for me or my wife. If The SHTF, we will hunker down with our other Rural and armed friends, family and Neighbors and stand our ground cause to do otherwise would be folly at best. I guess it helps me to know as a Christian, this place is temporary anyways. Temporary yes, but its ours till we sell it or our hearts stop pumping.

Bugging-in would be a good answer for most people. But an evacuation plan would be an absolute necessity. 99.9% of homes are not really defensible. And no matter where you live at some point someone(bad guys, gov, or neighbors) will try to take your stuff. The farther out you live the more experience the bad guys will have when they get to you. And then there will be fires. In cities there will be riots and they involve fires, always. Many will run to the country and have camp fires that will "get away" from them and burn large areas. All cities will have a fire problem. All western states will have a fire problem. There is no one answer for everyone. Have a plan and then have a back-up plan. And have a bag packed and ready.

I'm an old geezer, and am not all that enthusiastic about prolonging my life, especially if it'll be nothing but misery. I live in a little town that has no particular strategic value for any gov't, including ours, and I'd expect the roads to be closed. There's no place nearby to walk to, and walking long distance wouldn't be an option. So I'd (I'll) just stay put and if the gooberment or some gang of looters comes after me I'll take as many of them as I can with me.

nobody is walking very far with even a 70 lb pack. Injury-illness-errors will be the result, no matter how fit you are. Most people won't make it 30 miles, carrying 30 lbs, actually. Now, a mountain bicyle, with a little trailer behind it, and you can easily have 100 lbs of gear and food with you. Still, that wont last more than a couple of months, at best.

You simply must have food and gear buried, scattered a bit. Like 5 drums per person, in a circle about a mile across. each out of sight of the others, but reachable by crawling, if need be, in the dark, in one night, and crawling back to the dugout shelter, while avoiding enemies.

I'm not going to be bugging out either, not with knees that need replacing and a 78 year old mother to care for, so whatever happens beyond my place completely disappearing I'll have to make my stand here.

yeah, same with little ones. they can't keep up and you can't carry them and the BOB, too. Virtually nobody's wife can even carry what she needs to last a week (4 seasons) So you'd be trying to lug around 20 lbs of her stuff, etc. Just aint feasible for most people. Vehicular bugout aint gonna work. People aint thought this stuff thru very well.

Down the road, no problem. Overland, not a chance.
