All of my plans are for getting water from creeks, rivers,
lakes and rain.

Running water will not be there if the grid goes down.

Old time lever pumps from a well will work, if the grid is down
electric is going to be a pain to make long term.

Although someone with some skill can make a cheapy wind turbine
or wind belt, or turn an alternator into a power producer.

I am just thinking low tech is less likely to break.

Slow sand filter, SODIS, USP resublimated iodine crystals,
bleach will all give u drinkable water.

As will a solar still.

Wells dug into the ground do not rely on the "grid". The well is dug to an area below the in ground water line, and manually (or electrically) pumped to the surface. So you can still have running water after the SHTF.

Yeah, have a primary bugout location, and then have a fall back that
is extreme uninhabited area with no good roads.

Cache supplies nearby, but out of sight, just like special forces teaches.

If it has one crappy bridge to cross to get to it , it is damn near perfect
because once you cross it you can decide if you want anyone else
crossing the bridge through various ways.

Having a comfy main place is ok, but don't get too attached to it
if overwhelming problems are seen coming down the road.

Out of sight is out of mind.

Learn the art of concealment, like a Ghillie, and if you see a threat
you don't want to deal with fade away, and fall back to one of your few
camp sites out in the middle of nowhere.

Consider cold camps so you won't have a smoke plume.

If you need to cook consider some aluminum foil and make a
solar oven in a makeshift manner.

Good Luck !
