I realize you don't think bugging out to the woods is feasible for a family. Maybe it's not. But not all of us have a family. Some of us are lonewolfs, and we think we can pull it off. And whether you think we can or not, that's still our plan and that's what we want to discuss.

You keep moving our threads to the urban section, of all places. We're sure as hell not talking about bugging out to the city. So why would you move these threads to there?
I'm a total nut job, partly because I read through these forums just to see a couple
of good nuggets of good input. Then a few who agree and a bunch who argue. My plan is to bug out to a remote location and hide while civilization destroys itself. Follow up on a ham radio and someday crawl down closer to evaluate the situation, and plan from there. I'm not clear of Kevin's intentions in the post. The term "Wilderness Survival" sounds to me like surviving the "Wilderness". Unless he's talking about wondering off aimlessly into the sticks and surviving...something..? Heck IDK

Default Guidelines for the Wilderness survival, hiking and camping section

I dunno about all this stuff in this topic but if wilderness survival doesn't include a backpack or hiking or camping id damm sure like to see a section made just for that purpose cuz I been doing it all wrong all these years. Lol. I am a woods dweller. I like "bushcraft" type things but on an old school level. I came here for wilderness type things. Bug out? WTF is that? From what I read I did that years ago. Perhaps the section in question should be renamed "wilderness survival WHILE camping and hiking recreationally"? Just to eliminate confusion because I honestly thought that was the right place to post for woods creatures such as myself. Thanks kev for a decent forum. Some other "bushcrafting" places are so anal,unless of course you make a monetary donation for full access.

Lets get a few things straight:

Hiking and camping does not include "Bugging Out" or "backpack survival."

Firearms, unless its self defense against a bear attack or wild animal attack.

AK-47s and AR-15s are not recommended for stopping a bear, so please do not post anything about those firearms here.

Hiking, camping and wilderness survival means just that - hiking, camping and wilderness survival.

I am getting tired of moving threads. If this keeps up, when I move a thread, an infraction will be given out.
I now understand what you were trying to avoid. I am trying to learn more about bushcraft, though it's not what you want to hear. I wish to learn more in the way of bushcraft, in order to sustain myself in a bug out scenario. Thanks for hosting a fine forum.

I am here myself to learn more in the way of the bushcraft of our forefathers for the reason of detachment from dependence of our current government. Not that I don't want to support our government, I just want to become more self reliant and break free from the government teet.

Probably the best prepping for a SHTF escape are 7-10 day, off (popular) trail hikes. You have only what you can carry on your back, cover a lot of ground, and must survive a variety of situations.

The loops around Mt Rainier, the Olympic National Forest, the Appalachia Trail, and such can be full of suprises.

I went off-trail deep in Yellowstone back before you could legally carry in National Parks. I should have had a gun; a few situations would have been easier with a gun available.

I always have a gun now everywhere.
