So, to quote The Clash
...Should I stay or should I go now?
Well it really depends on the situation.
Is it an NBC attack (if warning is given, and your in a big city, go now, stop reading and just go to your grandmas farm out in the country now!)?
Military coup or invasion? (fight or flight)
Do you have your Bug Out Bag
ready, and if not can you pack fast enough to get out
quicker then the majority?
Do you have family to take care of?

If your going to bug out, you better wiegh your options and make your decision quickly and don't second guess your own judgement. The quicker you
act the less likely you are to get stuck in the panic, and can be out the door and on the road before most people have even decided what to do or what

the old minivan, and I have serious doubts of the SUVs on the market right now and there abilities of off-road versitility. In the warmer months, I
ride my Kawasaki to work as much as possible, not only to save gas, but to be able to get around any sticky situation on the road if something
I really don't have the bug out option as readily avaliable as others, having an infant and all, but should the absolute need arise
have to make that judgement call. Until then I'll keep working on my plans for hunkering down.
