Every prepper knows that a well-equipped bug out bag can mean the difference between life and death during a natural disaster or SHTF scenario.

Experienced preppers recommend that Read more “10 Lightweight Items for Your Bug Out Bag”

Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian”

Planning for Evacuation!
Host: Denob “The Prepared Canadian” Your home is your castle and I’m sure, like me, you don’t plan to leave it all behind unless you absolutely have to. Sometimes though, bugging out is the only option, and the decision to do so may be made for you either by evacuation orders or the nature of a disaster.
Simply put, no one can say that they will never bug out, and there are some important preparations you need to have in place before that need arises. Sure, everyone should have a bug out kit ready to go, but proper planning isn’t as simple as it sounds. There are many factors to consider such as where will you go, how will you get there, and how to make sure the rest of your family also meets up with you along the way.
The answers to these questions depend on many factors and there is no one size fits all solution. Bug out plans depend on many factors and need to be adaptable on the fly. This week on The Prepared Canadian I’ll discuss how to plan for almost any scenario with multiple choices that you must have in place before you are forced from your home.
Among the topics will be planning multiple destinations, mapping out routes and alternatives, having many ways to communicate with other members of your family if you are not all together, as well as some advice for bug out bag contents that will not only help you get where you’re going, but also help restore some sense of normalcy when the dust settles and your normal lives begin to come back into play.

Has the topic of Bugging Out or the Bug Out Bag been beat to death? You can use the search engines and find an endless amount of articles and posts on the subject. Most of these articles have been well written and researched… behind a desk. How often do these articles reflect real life experience?, almost never I suspect.
Personally, I have experienced a time when I wish I would have had a bug out bag and not having one almost cost me my life but this is another story that I may share at some other time. For now I look forward to what we will hear from another who will be sharing their experience of near death and the reasons for and the items he believes are essential to have in your Bug Out Bag. I hope that you will tune in with me and listen as well. Looking forward to seeing you in chat.

This is known as bugging out, and every Prepper should have a plan to do so.
