    Hi, I am new to survival and I am starting to become more aware of reasons why it should be done and I have been thinking about where a good bug out location could be nearish to my home. I have thought of forests, reserves and such but then I had the thought of a reservoir. It had plenty of...

    I have recently moved from a very bad, drug/crime-ridden neighborhood. To say I have downsized is an UNDERSTATEMENT, but I've traded my house for a 25 foot RV camper trailer. You would think my fiancee and I would have a hard time adjusting to a smaller place, or that she would be complaining...

    The wife and I have been dedicated 'Preppers' for the last few years, slowly building our reserves. And I have been on the look out for some BOL in the event we are ever in the right position to actually purchase any land...right time, right place...right price tag? And so on... And we...

    . This is my brother Allen's story The Perfect B.O.L. until the wrong people move in down the road. Found an awsome BOL sitting on 10 prime acres with mountains and river and only 2 other neighbors nearby for miles. Perfect right? It was at first, till the old couple sold their land to a...

    A prepper’s primmer When prepping you have prepare for three main phases PreSHTF, SHTF and PostSHTF. PreSHTF Is the period of time leading up to the event, this is where we are now. SHTF Is the period of time during which the event is occurring. PostSHTF Is the period of time after...

    We all have tried (or should have) to see how fast we can bug out if need be… We also know that two or three is better than one. So with that in mind (extra BOB already to go) how many have a BOV already loaded, filled with fuel all ready to jump in and turnkey and take off..? The BOV already...

    I was searching the Internet (for BOL tips and such) and I came upon a site (http://www.freemaptools.com/radius-around-point.htm) that allows you to find the circular distance around a point- this could prove pretty useful for people trying to find good areas to set up a BOL. Anyway, the main...

    Having recently read One Second After by William R. Forstchen, I found myself wondering what I would do, living in Florida, if I were in the same situation. My first thought was that the effects of an EMP would be limited by some degree over the United States and that Countries like Canada, The...

    This will probably seem reminiscent of Fall out New Vegas. Also Depending on the SHTF will this even be considered. We went camping this weekend at Kerr Lake. The lake and it's camp grounds are self sufficient. John Kerr Dam creates it's own electricity, and filters it's own water. This is...

    I should've put this with my thread on gasoline storage, but I didn't know it would get so many responses. So I figured I would make a new one just for a poll. Also I made it anonymous, so be honest. Attn. farmers and ranchers Just for clarification, gasoline or diesel doesn't really matter...

    I keep "enough." Mainly because if our BOV were completely empty (which it never is) we still have enough stored to get to our farthest possible BOL if we need to. If it were full then with what we have stored we would have twice as much as we need to get there. The other reason we keep it is...
  13. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I live in an area that has been hit by several small tornadoes, no where near what has happened in the Mid-west. We have a farm with a good many acres so space is not a problem. The farm house is solid 36"+ field stone walls that have stood for more than 150 years. BUT - I have an aged mother...

    Does anyone have decent photos of what his bug in location was like? I keep hearing about the height of his exterior walls, no windows except windows toward an interior courtyard...barbed wire and all three floors secure... But his visible security made him stand out in a not so developed area...

    Please tell me if you have a community going. I'm new to this and not as knowledgeable as I should be at 22 but I do have some skills that might be useful. Please let me know something soon.

    I went out on a little jeep adventure the other day and found a great place for a temporary BOL. I started to think about it, this would be a great place to go as a transition or even a rally point if you are moving out with others. I know I could easily spend several days there maybe even...

    http://kirksville.craigslist.org/for/2335367723.html Just wanted to share this. I'm pretty happy with my current location or I would buy it. Slap in a composting toilet and some solar panels and it would be a reallllllly nice investment!

    Has anyone given consideration to what they would do if you rolled up to your BOL only to find that someone else has beaten you to YOUR spot and has hunkered down? Any thoughts about what precautions a person could take to keep this from happening?
  20. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    First of all, some background information: My primary plan is to just stay at home if SHTF, providing security mainly through obscurity, trying to look like an ordinary abandoned house. However, if I'm forced to leave my house, the plan is to take my BOB/wilderness survival/hiking bag and...
