    My plan is to bug-out rather than in. Because I live in a major U.S. city (Los Angeles) the success of this plan requires that I bug out before the masses. What triggers your bug-out plan? Do you have a set criteria for bugging out? Or do you plan to simply play it by ear? I decided that I...
  2. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lately there seems to be many threads asking if people practice bugging out or if bugging out to a BOL will even work. So I thought it might be good to actually tell about in detail and show with many pics how one can get to a BOL - bug out location for those who might not know. And even...
  3. Urban Survival
    What helps you choose a BOL? Food supply? Secure location? Ease of access in and out? Also what about giving friends access to your location? Personally, my BOL has a stocked pond, deer, turkey, and various small wildlife. Plenty of trees for fuel and hiding. It is far enough out of...

    The following may seem like a very long post but it covers much, possibly all people need to know about a survival retreat, with an excellent checklist. Even those who live in cities can take what they are able to from the following list. Anyone who is really interested in survival retreats...
  5. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hi, Like many of you, i am renting. During a SHTF i think everyone would like a safe haven with protection, or at least the resources to to survive (food and water stores). What are us people that rent supposed to do if we don't have land and can't afford any? I live in a semi-rural area of...

    We have 42 acres, which is pretty much a square 1/4 mile on each of four sides. The East side is a river, the West side is a county road. Across the road we have 105 acres; it is 1/4 mile wide and 1 mile deep. Running it's entire length, deadcenter is a jeep trail. Both properties are forested...
  7. Polls and Surveys
    1. How many folks are living in their BOL [Bug-Out Location]? I mean like in it permanently; full-time; stocking-up; setting up defenses; self-sufficient or working toward self-sufficiency. Maybe even off-grid already? On the other hand: 2. How many have a BOL setup but are not living in it...
  8. Wilderness Survival, Hiking and Camping Forum
    This is a thread that could be posted in the Survival & Preparedness General discussion section but it is possibly even more on topic in this wilderness-camping forum. I was going to make this about all kinds of survival retreats from the most expensive and fanciest to the least expensive...

    Human conflict, Wars and TEOTWAWKI Time to be a little provocative again. This time I would like to address the sources of violence that we can see in the world today. When it comes to human conflict the most common form of conflict is civil war. Wars between states are very uncommon in the...
  10. Urban Survival
    Just bringing up to speed our past two weeks working on our "Move" out of the city to our new "Bug In", low cost location. To sum it up in three words "WORK< WORK<WORK"....... Found a place about 10 miles out of town, at the end of a dirt road that turns into a cart path for another mile, and...

    What have some of you done for your Survival Shelter? Is it a cabin in the woods are you going to stay at home? Are you going underground? Any and all things you have done or even ideas you have just want to see what your thinking.
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Just some thoughts about BOL, Some folks like myself cant afford to go out and buy a remote piece of ground that I can set up as a BOL. Also what other choices do I have, Besides buggin IN, and hope for the best. National forest, not sure about that either, being East of the Mississippi, limited...
  13. Urban Survival
    After reading so many of Jerry's stories, I have been re-thinking my BOL which is to close to the Ocean and almost at sea level, Poor Quality Soil Gardening, No elevation for Underground structures due to water level and At the hunting camp, I will have to deal with un-prepped Members who show...
  14. Food and water
    I spent the better part of a whole day, sore lower back, plenty of sweat and great satisfaction several weeks ago moving a couple hundred jars of my finest canned item to my BOL, along with my 5 gal buckets, dry goods and canned veggies. Last night I realized that If it gets to cold this winter...

    Whose BOL is this?
  16. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Here are some new pics of my remote Wyoming survival retreat. Many of you have seen my first thread where I showed my bunker and retreat in the "photos of my underground shelter" I have gotten quite a few emails the past couple months asking more about my retreat. One of the best ways to...
  17. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Just thought I would make a new thread about underground shelters, which is one of my favorite subjects. I built an underground shelter which I call an underground cabin - bunker - fallout/blast shelter even part can be a root cellar etc. I built this shelter on my remote mountain land in...

    Ok, so I don't know if this has been done before but I wanted to start a thread where everyone could brainstorm and contribute ideas on ways to secure your home. My idea was to collect ideas for the perfect Bug In home. How would you do it? What features would you incorporate? I'm hoping to...
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Quick question: how far is your BOL? Follow ups: are you in a rural or urban setting to begin with? how many routes are there to your BOL? How many of these routes could be considered 'off road'? i was just thinking of how hard it would be for me to get out of the city (if i had a BOL set up)...
