This is a common question here and on other forums. It comes up quite frequently. The problem is, most people have a preconceived notion of what
Sit-X will be. The fact is, none of us know what events precipitate Sit-X. We have no way of knowing what areas will be affected or how
easy/difficult travel will be. The very last situation you want to find yourself or your family in is being stuck en-route.
My family plan includes a comprehensive Shelter-in-Place vs. Cut-and-Run checklist. We live about 50mi outside a city. Whether we stay or go and
where we go will be dictated by what actually happens. If at all possible we would stay. We have a well, wildlife that can be hunted (rabbit, deer,
squirrel, turkey, dove) and a stockpile of supplies. Of equal importance, we have neighbors that can be marshalled to provide mutual security and
The key is to carefully (and accurately) understand the situation, develop enough relaible intellgence as to how the situation is developing, and know
with a very high degree of certainty that your destination would provide a better survival probability than your current location AND you have a very
high probability of reaching it and reaching it safely.
