When the SHTF, some urban preppers may plan to bug out to the “wilderness”, but most will probably stay put–bug in–where they know the “terrain” and feel comfortable with their community.
And I can’t imagine a rural family making a run for the city as a survival strategy.
But both city slicks and rural hicks (like me) face the same basic survival needs: food, water, and medical security.
How you prepare for some of these requirements depend on where you live today: in the countryside or in or near a city. But some of the prep strategies overlap. They’re prudent plans regardless of whether you’re an urban or rural dweller.
During a catastrophic natural or man-ignited disaster, you have two choices: you can bug out, or you can bug in — that is, stay put.
Regardless of your choice (your plan), travel will be involved. The travel part is obvious for bugging out: you have to get from here to there.
And traveling if you bug in? Well, if it’s a long-term SHTF scenario, eventually you’ll have to travel outside to scavenge …
