Let’s face it – Bug Out Vehicles are sexy. At least in the movies and in prepper fiction. But what goes into making a vehicle something that can withstand a solar storm, a natural disaster, or a roving horde?
It could be the storm chasers that track tornados, or the bomb-proof disaster vehicles outfitted by millionaires. Maybe, just maybe, it could be that beat-up old car or truck down the road.
This week we get into the weeds about what makes a vehicle strong and why. But we don’t stop there. We’ve put our money where our mouth is. We’ll be building a bug out vehicle starting from an old beater and we’re going to take you along for the ride! In this show we explain the features we’re going for and why. We also challenge the myths of what a perfect bug-out-vehicle should be and what it really is.
You may be wondering why we’d do a show on vehicles when our show is focused on how to get kids involved in prepping. Well, eventually kids grow up and get behind the wheel themselves. So in taking that involvement to the garage, we’re not only building skills, but we’re also getting them prepared for the day when they get behind the wheel.
It’s time we take back our mechanical skills and give the dealership the boot.
Also, don’t miss out on our Pint-Sized Prepper Project of the Week where we explain how to change a flat tire, and a few tips to make sure you and your family can stay on the road this summer.
