I am in no attempt "mocking" anyone or the forum.
Perhaps I have not explained myself in enough detail.
Obviously we want to drive, If that's a viable option, 600 Miles is about a 10 hour drive. I completely understand that would be a very long walk.
However I tend to lean towards optimism everything would work out either way.
Yes, as I previously mentioned the reason I am short on food, isn't that we don't have dry goods in our house, the reason is I am trying to make
these packs a bit lighter. I do understand even 3 days of food would not get us to the first bug out location, scenario depending this bug out
location is no where near Nuclear power plants, the other location is a 24 hour drive, where we live is mainly jam packed with people and cities.
Obviously it isn't optimal to have to travel so far to bug out. The 600 mile place is where we like to take our vacations so if its a driving bug
out, and things haven't gotten too bad yet, we could just call it a vacation if things calm back down.
So with that said, I do have skills, I tend to be a great problem solver, I can fish, hunt, and find berries that won't kill me. The first 3 days of
food would be great to get us out of the city area, and to an area where we can get food, of course if we're driving i'll just throw the whole
pantry in the vehicle.
Hopefully this explains it a bit more.
I am open to ideas on how to store food that won't be so heavy, I had thought of making some home made beef jerky and sealing it with a vacuum seal,
however I don't have a dehydrator on hand or a vacuum sealer.
I don't have any interest in mocking this forum, if I'm naive and it comes to light, I appreciate that, it will help slap me with a bit more reality
and may save my life.
