I respectfully disagree! However, either choice you make, to bug in or bug out has a ton of variables that will determine the outcome.
To bug in, means that everyone knows where you are. There is a network of roads connecting your house to a grid. It's like a big arrow pointing
right to your location. The more you make it look defended, the more stuff you will be assumed to have making you a huge target.
While they might go as far as going door to door, hiking through brush and bramble will not be something anyone wants to do in order to go looking for
resources. Especially when there's such easy targets bugging in.
I'll take my chances in the thicket by a lake - silent, easy to capture food, no need to build a fire to cook it if things get really scary, easy
enough to stay mobile with the woods and nature being a better early warning system than ADT.
I hope if it happens, perhaps we'll both make it and have a chance to share stories over a campfire some day.
