Skip to comments.Why many preppers will die

His story is not so unique, but I know much more stories about how folks got killed because they refused to leave their home (and run) when under attack by several people armed with firearms, while they were unarmed, or armed with pistol or knife, clearly outnumbered.
I read every day on web sentences like having this gun will save you when SHTF or with this BOB you can not lose when SHTF. Of course this is marketing crap from people who want to sell you something.
Please do not get yourself killed, or allow your family to die when SHTF just because you put your perfect BOB on, your zombie survival rifle in your hands and went out to save the world.
Or to get killed because you draw line and here you stand your ground for example when they attack your home or your storage. Do you really want to die just to hold onto things?

Bob really hates when I put him on. What in the world is a BOB? Big Ornery Beast?
Some women have boyfriends named ‘BOB’.
‘B’ug ‘O’ut ‘B’ag
A bag you prepare ahead of time incase you have to leave home fast because of fire, flood, what every. Stuff to get you by for a few days while youget you somewhere safe.
“BUG OUT BAG”
I just looked it up.
Bug Out Bag.
LOL - Exact TIE Kart :-)
Bug Out Bag... sort of like the Swiss Family Robinson’s ship, which carried all the inventory of 2 Walmarts and 3 Home Depots.
When the Doodoo hits the wind appliance I will be taking care of mine and not giving a dissertation on the particulars.
Anything can happen at any time. Heck, at least one of the Rothschilds (the people who supposedly control the whole world) died in the Nazi concentration camps.
I think we need to buy lotto tickets!
Kart, the simple fact is that most wise people that are preppers are not equipped to “run”. Physical or otherwise. I suggest to those that they have a Scorched earth plan.
You are so right about Swiss Family Robinson!
They prospered on that desert island because they had all the shipwreck spoils to themselves, and everyone else on that ill-fated ship was dead!
Howcum no one else survived the ship running aground? The captain was killed by a falling spar, but what about all the others?
And the best way to do that is not be seen.
And the best way to not be seen is don't move around outside of your well camoed/concealed safe zone unless it is absolutely necessary...
I haven’t read the book but in the Disney movie, the crew abandoned ship.
It was a pretty good movie and while maybe not realistic, it sure beat “Gilligan’s Island.
I doubt if I could survive on the run. Food, water, and shelter etc is not just stuff it is necessary to survive. If I can’t bug in, I’m probably doomed anyway, so might as well fight for it.
Still pretty convenient for the sake of the story; nice not to have to share.
I remember Sessue Hayakawa as the pirate leader & how the family fought off the pirate invaders with coconut hand grenades.
