It really depends on your situation. It sounds like you don't have many threats in your area regarding natural disaster, so buggin in is your best bet for most things. BUT one should always be ready to leave. -
- What do you do if your house catches fire during SHTF? Suddenly you're in a desert without shelter, supplies are gone, water well/generator is disabled...
It might be good to have a truck with some fuel and water ready to go, and away from the house so you aren't stuck in the desert.
OR, what if people start fleeing Tucson, (as your friends have already mentioned their intentions) your house becomes a stop. how many other people will follow them? Will they bring their families, or will people desperately fleeing the city thinking they can run the desert on foot, or with dry gas-tanks wind-up on your doorstep?
Is it possible for your well to dry-up? The possibilities of What-If's are endless. Only you can determine if you are in a good position, or are better off leaving. But there are reasons to be prepared to leave.
