Got that covered, additionally I would advise you have an escape route that does not involve any interstates. I a sneeky person and have some caches along my deserted routes as well with ammo/food/ect Good thing about having fuel stored is it also allows you to hedge against price gouging

should I start a separate thread on what to have in your vehicle? Or should we use this one? I thought it would be nice to have one for the stuff you could carry on foot and a different one for vehicle, and one more for stocking the castle

I'd keep all of the "bug out" ideas on this thread.
I think highways will be MUCH safer in any initial evacuation than 2ndary roads. Remote 2 laners will be subject to hasty ambushes and ad-hoc checkpoints, where the locals will force you to be searched and best and looted or even carjacked or killed at worst.
It will take a while for bandits to get up the nerve (and the numbers) to attempt to put road blocks across interstate highways. They will be open and fast moving 100 miles outside of the evacuated city. They will have the state police, helicopters flying over, etc.
The back roads will twist through every "Hootenholler" town and remote canyon. You don't want to be there, because you are very likely to be stopped for "inspection" by the locals, who may covet what you have. And there will be no police to call.
