Bugging In VS Bugging Out. How Safe Are Your Homes?
Many if not most people including preppers have decided that bugging in, staying at home in the city is the best way to go. I am not going to say that bugging out to the wilderness/bush is going to be easy, certainly if you have had no previous experience & have not learnt any primitive skills, then it will be very hard for these people. But is the option of bugging in really a good idea? I don't think so.
In the city when the electricity goes off there will be no power, no cooking, no sewage so no toilets, & no water on tap. We are talking a major shtf situation here, long term problems. Not safe to go outside & I don't think you will be safe inside. Preppers boo hoo the idea that gangs, raiders, thugs could run a Mack truck through a house or set their home on fire. Think again! If they can't simply break in & take what you have, they will destroy your home.
So you have food & water supplies, how long do you think they will last? There will be no hunting, no foraging. The supermarkets will have been raided & all stocks gone. Too dangerous to cook outside & too dangerous to bury your toilet buckets outside.
Think about it.
