I think this is a great topic of conversation, To Bug Out or Not to Bug Out...........
There are many idea's about B.O.B. either your for it, or your against it! If you need someone to point out proof at this day and age of why they
have a B.O.B. then Im sure your time is to more important to trouble with building one at this point.
B.O.B.'s are not only ment for military style "Run & Fight Another Day" situations, someone above mentioned them for Natural Disaster, Home burning
down, Break Downs in the middle of nowhere, etc...
And truely.... thats what they are for, enough on hand to keep you alive for a given time, until help arrives if a situation is at hand.
If you think a B.O.B. is going to keep you alive through a deeper situation, ie; Gov'mnt take over, Martial Law, Anarchy, then your sadly
mistaken.Those situation's would take years of planning, unless you got a Chit load of money to throw out fast.
Personaly I think its great to see people "Prep" but sad to see the Sheeply type get taken in by REI, Cabel's, Eddie Bauer add's. How many times
Ive been out and seen these people pop out of their Subaru ready to test their equipment, dressing up in all their fance little outfits, only to come
back to the car after being turned back by a 2ft deep rain puddle that covered the trail.
Dont get me wrong, these companies sell "Great" products, but its the people who use them that make the diffrence.
Prepping isnt for everyone, its a personal view of how you see things going down, how ever it may be. Alot of folks have much more important things
on their plate to bother with the thought or action of following through w/ a B.O.B. and thats fine, it doesnt make you a bad person. And fortunatly
this is my thought brought to you by the new lib thinking, "Personal Freedom" to choose!
But now to my practical true roots survival mentality,
Ive been Prepping since I was 8, my father a carrier Air Force man, I grew up all over the US, but most of my time spent in Alaska and in the real
woods, sleeping under the the Stars @ -20 below, the Northern Lights so close you can hear them crackle. By no means am I claiming to be and expert in
any form of survival, and nobody can make that claim. But being prepaired for a Worst Case Senerio of your own ability is true human nature, not
trying to decide on the $300.00 jeans or XBox.
These will be the people who have pissed through their little survival kit, two flats of bottle water and a case of Romin and two candles within a
week. These will be the people who will be forming up with others to over run and take what you have, unless they get taken out early.
For those who think they are going to not worry about this until the time is upon us and loot kit from others once they are dead, keep in mind. We may
be in a state of lawlesness but that doesnt mean we dont hold to an account of standards and morals (something lost within our Gov'mnt and passed on
to their sheeply) and stealing a "Shoot first and Ask questions later" situation, get my drift?
To say your going to hold out at your home in a city that has some size is a bit suprising, hopefully your one of the lucky people to have a inner
city group to rely on, but never be afraid to retreat.
Me, Im a simple person,I have a simple home in a small city, I enjoy many diffrent things in my day to day life, I have cumputer, XBox, nice
motorcycle, great running truck, and plenty of friends.
I also have a off the grid retreat to go to, a place that has yrs of food on hand, plenty of survival tools, communications, etc....
And yes maybe I did waste alot of money on top of the line camping gear and survival gear prepping, but at least I wasted it on being prepaired and
not on some shoes or outfit that looked good or was in fashion.
Maybe a artical of intrest????....
