  3. Coronavirus
    I am picking up a Wal-Mart order in an hour but out of curiosity, I wanted to see how far out you had to place your order. They only had today and tomorrow showing at all, both saying not available but Tuesday on isn't even listed. At the bottom it says, "Sorry! Due to increased demand, no...

  5. Urban Survival

  6. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Like some on this site, I am a prepper located in an urban environment. My biggest concern is the fact that while I have a "fall back/bug out" location, the hardest part will be getting there.

    Ok. I have 2 bugout bags, and a huge bug out tote if I can get to it. Has more serious camp gear in it. Now that all of that is prepared, I'm wondering to myself..... will I even be able to get out of town? Or will it be necessary? Will it be super oppressive military style concentration camp...
