How well has this disaster been handled? 4 years of Homeland Security.....We had warnings about the Hurricane....What if this had been a terror attack? Flooding NO. I don't think HS is prepared to do anything. Seems to me 4 years and nothing to show. IMO.

I am putting some stuff together this weekend. Thanks for some good ideas. I have a very large woodburning fireplace in my home and keep lots of firewood in the garage. The room it is in is big enough for my family to live in if necessary. Am buying heavy plastic sheeting to close off other rooms and insulate windows in case the fireplace is the only heating source. I might purchase a satellite phone. I have a few cases of batteries and several rechargeable solar ones.

I always figured that anyone living in a heavily populated area is SOL if they have to evacuate quickly anyway, so I have not packed a "ready bag" for taking with me. I do keep a box with a few essentials in each car, in case I or my husband are stranded away from home.

I'm also thinking about buying about $1000 in gold, just in case.

Great thread!

I think most cities could turn into a catastrophe if the water and electricity were cut off for a few days. The key would be to get out fast, or better yet, don't live there in the first place.

Here's one idea: a small trailer you keep in your garage or elsewhere, with a dozen or so five gallon jerry cans full of gasoline on it. The idea is to have your own "ultra range extender" ready to go.

On your way out of the city, all of the nearby gas stations will be totally overwhelmed. At best, you will wait for hours or days in a line for gas. At worst, you will be robbed as soon as you pull off of the freeway to search for gas. You may be killed, or be left on foot in a dangerous area controlled by thugs.

With a small trailer loaded with about 60 gallons of gas would allow you to hit the freeway and get way beyond the zone of lawlessness before you have to stop. All of the area withing one tank of gas range (200-400 miles) will be overwhelmed by desperate refugees. The preloaded trailer gets you way beyond this area, and into unaffected areas where prices are normal and motel room and so on are available at non-crisis prices.

Think of how cheap such a trailer would be to buy and stock now. Consider it life insurance.

Of course, it will have to be camouflaged as refugee junk nobody wants, to avoid it being targeted. But the point is, the freeways, if you get out early (because you are prepared and ready to roll) will be viable. The areas off of the freeways around gas stations and stores will be refugee crisis zones which you must avoid.

Not a damn thing.

I've got groceries and pet food enough for about 2 weeks.

I've got gas appliances and a crick that runs behind the house, plus an old hand pump on the well.

That's about it.

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.

With the approach of 9/11 in a weeks time combined with the natural disaster that is New Orleans I would thing that if there were a terrorist working within the US right now would be prime time to strike.

All I can say is that if we were somewhat aware of what was going on around us before now is the time to become a litte more vigilant

I hadn't thought of that! I was expecting more enforcement/ checkpoints on the major thorough fares. I guess the scanner would be very handy for the "official" checkpoints As far as what is in the vehicle:
I have
10 rifle mags
4 5 Gal spill proof fuel cans
level IV armor vest (left over from LEO job)
Level III Helmet w ballistic goggles
Complete tool kit
10 Gal Drinking water
Standard camping supplies
Shovel/Chains/Tow strap
Wool Blankets
Cash in small bills
Rem 870 loaded with soft impact, have 00buck in box

Tip after you get out of immediate danger slow down to conserve fuel the time/mpg between 75 and 50 is huge in most autos

Thanks for the thoughts!

I was just looking at my "kit" and thinking I had to update it.

Actually, it's a good idea to have more than one kit. I keep one in the house, in case I can't get out, and one in the car.

I hope FReepers take the time to do this SOON. Unfortunately I'm beginning to think this is a prime time for sleeper cells to wake up.

A convoy would be great, if time allowed. But I'd rather get out ahead of the herd solo, then get stuck in gridlock with my convoy, after leaving too late.

Excellent point!

Disaster can strike at any time.

Same mindset...I have an old toyota xcab 4x4 that I converted to a deep water rig that is propane powered. It has an 80 gallon on board tank and I have a small utility trailer that uses the same wheel tire lug pattern of the truck for minimal need of spares.

The trailer has 2 spare 80 gallon propane tanks in it and a QD Connection to allow me to use it "first" if I am on a bug out run. I choose propane due it's long term storage capability and it's multi use capability for stoves, generators and operating a old RV fridge in my homes garage if things get bad short term and I stay in place. Gas and diesel require treatment with stabl product to keep it fresh w/o bio buggies etc etc ....

The top of my trailer is a flat bottom boat if I get to really deep water and have to abandon my vehicle. The boat has a system to secure it and lock it over the top of the trailer and lift it on a hinge for gaining access to a construction grade "gang box" that I store other gear in.

In the bed of my truck is a KLR650 motorcycle that has a 6 gallon tank and gets great mileage . So if trauck & trailer has to be abandoned then I can get almost 1500 miles of the fuel carried and in the KLR.....

Of course basics such as katydin water filters and the new "miox" pens to make fresh water with an added desalinator hand pump if ya live near the coast is key. Camping gear for the long term w/ some pioneer tools and firearms an a puppy er two for security will get one through pretty well.....

My basic personal survival kit is in a small altoid mints size case that rides in my pocket 24/7 along with a leatherman multi tool, hurricane lighter, a CHL legal 1911A1 w/ 3 spare mags and a S&W 317 snub .22 w/ 50 spare rounds in a custom ankle rig cobbled by one of my old parachute riggers for us.

I wear the rest of my kit....such as boot laces are made from fire whipped 550 or 880 paracord as it's a valuable source of cordage either large or fine for sewing, floss, gill net making, emergency suture material, fishing, clothing repair etc. The web riggers belts with additional velcro allows me to use it as an emergency restraint (as if taking prisoners is an option :o), secure a splint, or emergency tie down on equipment etc ....

Lots of ideas..... NOLA is a lesson to study folks....learn it or go to summer school.

BTW can not say enough good things about Sat Radio like XM or Sirrus....it was there and channels like FNC, CNN and the XM emergency channel 247 was up and running for folks that had it in NOLA region. IMHO....THE BEST source of info as it has all the TV stations etc also.....

Just some of my ideas and plans....

And a key factor is DON'T WAIT.
Every hour spent at home getting ready means more highway gridlock, and less chance of a successful escape.

I went to that link, and then the firearms stuff. Useful, but of course, I do take issue with his handgun advice to women.

He says that "most women like the smooth-sided James Bond automatics....etc.." That is what the thug who kills them will think too...when he owns it. He also recommends the .38 Chief.

Autos are prone to jams, ammo and magazine sensitive, need good lubrication, and can malfunction if held weakly. In 9mm JHP, they are also shallow penetrators in less than 147 grain bullets, and if they do penetrate, may only leave a narrow wound channel = you get killed by a wounded attacker. In the militry, handguns are meant to back up a long arm, not replace it, James Bond style.

Revolvers work, but are bulky. Such is life, if one wants to keep it. .38s are less efficient than a good 9mm in similar bullet weights, because of the auto's closed breech sealing in the combustion chamber better, but my main disagreement is limiting ones's self to Specials, and under re-supply pressure, not being able to even chamber .357 magnum. Once self-defense or game-getting shooting has been experienced by anyone, male or female, the reality of the instrument sets in, and one would prefer to actually get the job done than be comfortable while shooting a pretty and quiet gun, and missing, or wounding. Therefore, a .357 in a short barrel, and preferrably a 4" barrel, if USING it. A .38 in a 2" is anemic, but better out of a 4". Pretty doesn't work. What WORKS works.

I use automatics for utility and defense. I know what to expect. I also expect that ammo resupply will be easier for the 9mm these days. That only makes it an expedient, not a personal favorite. There is a reason so many are choosing +P for their 9's. 124gr. JHP is like a .38 light bullet....marginal, and if it plugs up, ball, which may exit, but make a narrow hole. Bad. I use "Winchester OSM" standard velocity 147gr. JHP, and am quite pleased. My handguns are also not wearing out, and I do not flinch in expectation. It also retains more power at longer ranges...but alas, the "gun scribes" have already done their self-serving handiwork, as have certain "stopping power" journalists, and Americans are in harm's way without even realizing it. You will not fix your 9mm by making an expanding bullet go faster, only make a bigger hole, less deeply...which could be rather self-endangering in a serious event.

Ahhh. Gun Thread. It's what's for breakfast.

Muttly????????!

I never knew you were so well versed on firearms.

Very cool!

Firearms are a personal decision, and opinions will inevitably vary. The women I've known have almost uniformy "climbed the tree"; beginning with .22s and worked their way up to find a weapon they are comfortable with. Whatever they've decided has been fine with me.

I have an old Walther P-38 that dates back to WWII. Shoot it now an then to keep it toned. Even if it isn't what I consider a serious weapon.

Still love wheel-guns because they are so simple to use.
And .380s, because they remind me of Cap Guns when I was a kid.

Though I do have a very real soft spot for my slab side .45 ACP.

Jack.

I like a nice clean stainless 357 revolver w/ a 3 inch barrel for my cache's as it does what ya say an yet you don't need magazines and can use two different calibers of ammo. With the old phillips and rogers mods ya can use 17 or more calibers in such. I think CADCO or reeder is the one making em these days.... called the medusa in it's day.

That due the fact ammo may have to be scrounged for the long term makes it my first choice for a basic survival handgun..... Not many looters gonna take 9MM Largo. But then again can looters even read ?:o)

The escape pod concept will be great, if the USCG is not ordered to close the port of San Diego.

Which hopefully they will not be ordered to do.

On the plus side, the escape pod can carry 100s of gallons of fresh water, 180 of diesel, and I can make electricity 3 ways. We've spent 60+ days at sea non-stop (Guam to Cali) so I know we could do 100+ if it came down to crunch time.
