We’re rural. What do you think of not bugging out? We are on a well, have a manual pump, the necessary supplies, etc. IMO, it seems as if city folks need to bug out more than rural folks. Am I wrong?
City dweller here. We are planning on staying put and digging in until things calm down, or at least until the zombies have all left, unless we get enough advance notice.
Wrote about it here: http://www.freerepublic.com/focus/f-bloggers/2843624/posts and there were some good comments and discussion.
bug out or bug in - all depends on three questions
1) do you have a SAFER place to go than where you are at now
2) can you reasonably get there (travel, supplies, protection)
3) can the new location sustain you better than your current location.
Answer no to any one of those three questions and bug in becomes much more of a viable option. If the answer is no to all three, then bug in is the only option.
In general, city people who are planning ahead, will have a place out in the country that they can bug out to with at least 1 hrs notice.
Short of a nuke aimed at my roof, I’m staying put next to my well, too. That is if I still have one after Dear Leader’s Water Czar confiscates it.
Yes, I nearly went throught the tv the other night on “Doomsday Preppers” when the shopkeeper said she’d be going to the prepper’s house when it hits the fan. I’ll welcome our parents and kids but that’s the end of my generosity. No, honey girl, you can’t bring your pansy arsed idiot liberal obot boyfriend who has no, zilch, nada, zero life skills beyond breathing and if that’s your plan then you’re not moving in either. Call me mean but that’s my stance.
That’s a discussion of today’s youth (and older) opting for public transportation rather than a drivers’ license. That adds more zombies to crowd in that if they did manage to get a car moving, they’ll have crashed it before they get out to the rural areas.
