  3. Anyone considering bugging out to a rural area?

    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...

  6. Escape from South Florida

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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...

    I'm looking for constructive criticism and opinions on what I have for a set up.

The woods around me have essentially an endless...
