    My son and I were discussing about bug out bags and if we have to head for the hills, which is nothing new sense we often talk about it. The last few times we have came to the same conclusion, and that is we will not be bugging out and head to the hills. If the government zombies ever start eating the flesh of the live people in America, we will make a stand and fight.

    Should the zombie forces ever rise up enough to warrant the actions of the people of the state then we will be traveling no further then the nearest battlefront. So our bags are geared for just that. Sense both of us are in no health and can never be again to survive in the wilds for any length of time we have decided our best efforts is on the firing line. Where possible it may buy some time for others to get to their hide-a-ways safely.

    Our guns were not lost in a tragic boating accident, the guns are right here so Mr. Zombie, you can try and take them if you must.

    The necessity and importance of a BOB depends on where you live. If you're in an urban environment which is likely to turn nasty if the SHTF and where there's no land to grow food, a BOB can be useful to help you get to your bug-out location.

    Keep your BOB in your car. That way, if you're away from home and want to get home, it might come in handy.

    Leaving your home and heading for the hills with no particular destination in mind is a last-ditch effort to stay alive. In other words, don't do it if you don't absolutely have to. Your home has far more provisions and probably offers more safety than hanging out in the woods somewhere.

    I understand completely opaww. Depending on circumstances, some of us may have limited choices.

    I am not able to bug out since I am all held together with braces and screws. I am staying put. I could not even begin to carry all my supplies and ammo. I would need a truck. I am in a small village anyway with a small population.

    I have no desire to bug out to anywhere and if I did it would be a last ditch effort to survive. I have many family members within a half days hike so I have no reason to go far. I simply like being prepaired in the event of an emergency.

    I like The_Kid am already in the hills. Most of the FTF members are welcome here...plenty of room and vantage points. Surrounded by lots and lots of heavy wood in which to 'get lost'. Just a thought....

    But isn't it colder than a witch's mammary where you live in the winter? In this country, I recommend the Pacific North West to bug to. Best temperate climate and most of the residents are California princess's.

    Texas will be a nightmare.

    Good point, Ineff. It can get a tad chilly. It's 47°F right now and raining.

    (a week ago it was getting near 0° at night)

    Oh yes. I suggest up near Bishop, CA.


    I know a little valley which I'll be heading to if anything ever happens. Plenty of fish and deer for a group of people to survive off of.

    Nope, heading right up the road to the Gila Wilderness, water, game and plenty of places to get lost in, also the seasons are mild pretty much all year round.

    We are where we are going to stay, the main problem I can see is if we happen to be in one of the towns 30 to 50 miles away and the SHTF while we are there. That's why I keep in mind alternative routes back home that don't involve the interstate highway systems or even other major roads. Which makes carrying a BOB all the more important while away from home. Hopefully if the SHTF and we're away there won't be any snow on the back roads.

    In the gila wilderness there are a lot of cliff dwelings off the beaten path that provide excellent shelter and being on the cliff face can be defended easily.
