Default Bugging out UK fail.

So, all the Londoners jump in their cars, well not all of them but a significant percentage and " headed to the hills" last week.

Massive traffic jams in Wales.

FFS when will people get it into their heads that there is no real wilderness in the UK, there are 70 million of us packed into a tiny area, no where is more than a days drive from any where.else in the UK.

I bet loads of them an old air rifle they were going to use to feed themselves with too, they won't last week.

The UK and Britain gave up wilderness and rural living for a Godless, cosmopolitan lifestyle.

I lived in southern England for 10 years. Two anecdotes w.r.t. to 'heading for the hills' in the UK:

1) My local park in Toronto suburbia sees more wild animal life in two hours that in the 2 day hike I remember in central Wales, Lampeter and Pumsaint area. Having lived in various places in Europe and North America, I cannot believe how little wildlife there is in south Britain, yet I'm not surprised when the population density is considered.

2) I went once for a week's vacation in Cornwall, around 2002. I swear we had more traffic there than in London's Ring Road at 5pm or the M25 during the extra lane add on in the 00s. We stayed at a campsite... that was busier than the suburb of London where I lived... yet I loved Cornwall (people and scenery, love real Cornish pasties)... but the crowding...

According to your politicians, a lot more illiterate and barely literate from faraway can be fit in comfortably...

Its a pretty small country and the industrial revolution and latterly improved agricultural practices emptied the countryside. The facts arent really that exciting but feel free to tap your righteousness away on a device assembled in or made of parts made by China people.

The locals must be ecstatic. A golden hoard of pestilence saturated citiots driving around in their BMWs snatching up all the local grub and putting an even bigger potential strain on local medical resources. But at least all their survival gear matches.

Godspeed

The population density in South East England is 1200 per square mile. And yet still, within five miles of where I live I regularly see red kites and fallow deer. I walked across Wales five years ago and saw nothing, but then I was talking with my friend and we weren't that bothered.

Cornwall is the gods' own country (Christianity is only skin deep down there). I spent a summer there which I will never forget. The car parks for the pubs were always packed, so people just left the keys in the ignition ad parked nose to tail. If you wanted to go, you moved the cars that were in the way, got yours out then put them back. Happy days.

Leave him be, it makes him feel like a big man!

Oddly we live fairly rural yet haven't seen any sign of all these people, I think they all got it into their heads to go to the same 2 or 3 places. Pub shut obvs. but still doing take away, seeing dogs walked that never get walked. The quiet places we normally walk the dogs are busy.

I’m semi rural and a few folks are gone from round here, to who knows where. I’m the last two days it’s like a ghost town, it’s so peaceful and quiet.

There’s clearly no need to bug out from here. Those up in the Hebrides had to not only close the bridge but also the ferry. The shocking thing is that the NHS hospitals up there are very sparse and can’t cope with the extra population.

The result I think, is if you think you’ll need to bug out then move their during normal times and not during a Pandemic, thus spreading the illness.

That's what happens when you post from an iPhone.
