Well, it’s happened. Some disaster, or the SHTF. Doesn’t really matter.
You and your crew are bugging out. All the planning, discussions, and stocking is paying off. You know where you’re going, how you will get there, what you are bringing. It’s all set. Been set for some time.
And there you are. At your pre-determined bug out location.
Now you can’t just stand there, or haphazardly start doing “stuff.” Hopefully you have a plan for this part of your bug out scenario. A plan or a step-by-step survival guide for after bugging out. A guide that deals with:
Okay. We start with the S has HTF scenario. You have to (want to) to get from here to there, wherever here and there are.
You know what you must do once you arrive at your bug out location (if that’s where you’re going), you just need to get there safely. You don’t want to attract any undue attention. You want to maintain a low profile … which means staying off the roadways.
Here’s the premise of this article: bugging in is not an option. You have to leave your home or apartment. There are armed, occupying forces (national and/or foreign) moving into your town and neighborhood.
If you don’t leave, you risk harsh imprisonment and/or death.
Is this “Red Dawn” scenario likely? Maybe not. Is it possible? Most certainly.
There seems to be little discussion about sanitation preparedness for disaster scenarios. We talk about knives and gear, survival skill sets, food and water storage, the rule of 3’s, and self defense, ….
But when it comes to pee, crap, and trash (sorry, but it’s what we’re talking about), there’s not much dialogue. It’s going to be an issue if municipal systems break down or if you’re bugging out.
