Since i joined this forum about a month ago, i've read a lot of awesome posts, and learned a lot from the experience of other firearms enthusiasts. I especially enjoy reading the "bug out" threads, and seeing all the great ideas people have developed to survive a potential disaster. I live in Atlanta which is not the friendliest firearms city considering all the "super lefties" that live around me. I have branched out from the city, and met several other people who share my love for survival, firearms, and preparation. Most of them possess fantastic arsenals, and everything one could imagine to help them survive a devastating situation, along with alot of military knowledge. With all that said, one thing is lacking in almost all the people i encounter... They have absolutely no physical stamina. It has been a while since alot of them have done any physical activity (other than the usual yardwork), and i honestly don't believe they could keep up, let alone make it out of a hostile territory. I'm sure there are many members on this forum with past military experience, and have infinite knowledge to share on countless subjects. But what does all that matter if you can't hoof it 20 to 30 miles on foot with your precious "bug out" bag weighing you down? I'm not speaking for everyone, or about everyone, i'm just concerned that alot of money invested into an awesome evacuation plan may be in vain if you cannot muster up the physical energy to move at a decent pace, and keep it up. SUV's will run out of gas. Highways will be gridlocked. Normal means of travel may not be available, and foot/bicycle may be the only option. So i guess my question is this... How many of you think you are actually prepared in all areas, i.e. gear, mentally, and physically?
