    If you are medical worker you are fighting this war. If you an essential worker providing essential goods and services you are fighting this war. If you are non-essential and staying home you are assisting the war effort. If you are non-essential but going to work for survival you are a...

    It is happening a predicted over and over and over ... the city folks are running to the country in this SHTF virus situation. Clueless city people are bugging out to the country stripping the stores of anything they can get. In Logan OH. have posted pictures over and over of empty shelves of...

    I live in rural Maine, today we had our first case of CV-19, a man and his son from Massachusetts came up here to get away from the virus.... Guess what? He was infectious and just tested positive...

    Was passing through town and spotted three trucks in a parking lot. Attached to each truck was a large RV. One RV had a boat behind it. With so many people working from home, and kids out of school, how many people are going to stay in a rural area? Maybe grannys house, deer camp, national...

    I know we're supposed to be hunkering down, but we're preppers so we're always prepared to go wether be it to our BOL, to a family member, or whatever second location that we have. My question is, did you repack your BOB to fit your current needs or do you now have two BOBs? I'm trying to...

    For those of you going back and forth to the lake on Labor day, please do everyone a favor and secure stuff in the back of the truck and on the boat. Went to Jasper, Texas today (September 3rd, 2018) and there was an ice chest in the middle of the road. Would have taken just a few seconds to...

    Pros and cons of using a swamp as a bug out location? Lots of water, though it would have to be filtered. Plenty of wildlife, fishing, small game, and birds. Also lots of bugs, predators, and infections to find a cut in the skin. In the 1990s my buddies and I would go camping in the swamps...

    For those city dwellers that do not know this, spread all over the United States are small man made ponds. People who live in rural areas know about them. So, if a full blown collapse were to happen, how would you utilize the ponds? This video was filmed at a local deer lease. A few...

    BOB's everywhere you look its BOB's..... Its as if everyone is preparing to run out the front door to the nearest patch of woods as soon as anything major happens. I often wonder why people don't focus more energy on Bugging in.... seems more logical. I get it, its good to have a BOB in case...

    Hi all, i'm new to the site and wanted to get some feedback on how to evac South Florida in case a SHTF event unfolds. In my opinion, S. Florida may be one of the most challenging evac areas in N.America due to its geography and demographic concentration. Unless you have access to a watercraft...

    In a worse case situation, people will be fleeing the cities in search of food, or trying to get to a friend or family members house. We have historical examples of this with outbreaks of the plague in middle ages Europe. Vehicles will run out of gas and people will start walking. Highways...

    Article I posted on alloutdoor about having a remote cabin and using it as a bug out location. http://www.alloutdoor.com/2017/03/27/five-bug-location-considerations/ I based the article on decades of experience with my family having a hunting camp. Sometimes we would leave notes for each...

    Let's say you have unlimited funds for building a bug out base, for a vehicle and supplies what would you do with it?

    These holidays I've decided to test my bug out bag. My bug out plan involves me driving to a family members place out in the country side however I am aware that for some I may be forced to go on foot, so I want to test my skills for bugging out on foot. I plan on heading to a national park or...

    Besides major highways, lets talk about other ways of bugging out. In the video I talk about: Railroads Highlines Pipelines Old highway system

    I'm looking for constructive criticism and opinions on what I have for a set up. Basically I live in a small town in pretty much the middle of nowhere and if something happened where I had to leave it would be pretty easy to disappear in the woods. The woods around me have essentially an endless...

    Okay so I've been thinking. I've got everything I need here at my house. I live near a river so there's nonstop water. I have water filter. I've got plenty of emergency food buckets, MREs, canned food. A good rifle and hand gun and thousands of rounds of ammo for each, armored plate carrier and...

    All across the nation, tucked away in the wilderness are hunting camps. Often referred to as deer camps, these are usually simple wood framed buildings, may have a propane stove and propane refrigerator, a wood stove, a room with beds, or in the case below a single room with a couple of bed...
