first time on this forum. I have always read with real intrest as to other peoples thoughts as to what they would do if the shtf. Some people like to sit back and laugh and say some of us are way to parnoid. Perhaps some of us might be but Id rather have a parnoid prepared neighbor than some unprepared fool who comes to me because he did not think ahead. With the way things have been going for the last year or so Id say we have plenty to be concerned about. In terms of bugging out I have changed my thoughts some. Living in NW Ohio there isnt really anywhere to go to. We already live in the country as mentioned there really isnt anywhere that I know of (within about 100 plus miles) to go. I decided our best bet would be to hunker down and see what happens. I do keep a warm and cold weather BOB packed along with web gear, ammo, mags, etc. in case we had to vacate in a hurry. But given the chance to defend what we have and I felt we could come out on top Im staying where I am.
