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:
The Canadian Prepper wanted to see what it would be like to spend a night outdoors in below 30°C (-22°F) temperatures. He wanted to condition himself to the harsh realities of having to bug out into the deep woods in the thick of Canadian prairie winter.
And he went by himself.
He was testing Aeris (by fortress Gear) base layer clothing for a future video, so he wore no winter jacket. Tough test.
He drove as far as he could on a snowed-in road, hiked through thick brush with his monowalker ( a sled and rickshaw blend), and set up camp in raw woodlands.
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 …
