the fella made some mistakes, maybe the biggest was trying to use his 4WD as an 'off road' vehicle when the average is intended for rough gravel roads or jeep trails in inclement weather at most.
also he didn't have a spare mag for his pistol and have his wife and son with a firearm in a cover/conceal area to provide support if needed.
anyone else that has read this story point out some mistakes this family man - and his family - made?

He waited until the last minute, had no real plan, was out of shape to the point he could not protect his family

It is a great story, i'm afraid it will be the untold story of a lot of people, that was the point, to to try and get people to learn from his mistake so they could be better prepared.

likely his biggest mistake was to trust the occupants of the jeep to begin with. he should have had his son and wife armed and in cover in case of things turning out bad.
but the situation would not have developed as it did if he had not pushed his 4WD beyond it's limits.
when (not if but when) shtf this scenario will be played out God only knows how many times. the predators will be on the roads looking for travelers loaded with goods ripe for the takeing unfortunately. and only those with arms and ammo in readiness will survive the massacres waiting to happen.
IMO at the first sign of a firearm brought to bear the family should have shot the 3 bangers. the jeep still could have been used to pull the SUV from the mud and they would be on their way to safety.
