If the end ever went down, and America went up in flames; police unable to control crowds, a global catastrophe, war, or some other event; what is your plan of escape?

The first thing I would do is gather up the people I trust most (I actually have already talked to 4 of them about this already, more as a joking thing, but all kidding aside...we do have an action plan as it is fun to think about).

Our first order of business is to meet in a private residence, and take an inventory of weapons, food, and other supplies. Using maps (old school, no navigation/cell phones planned for in case of a magnetic storm) we plan out our route, and then assign everyone a task of some sort based on his/her knowledge areas. (One person was a medical student so they are in charge of medical supplies).

Secondly, if news is available we watch to see what areas have the most looters. Ideally we would hit places like K-Mart, Wal Mart, Target, the places that have ruined this country. At places like that, our plan of attack would be to only hit the medical supplies, pharmacy, food and ammunition (if applicable). All of us are already gun owners.

If those places are packed, it's sad, but we will have to hit the Mom & Pop stores.We would do it quietly, and make every attempt to not harm anyone (if anyone was present there). If somebody was present, we would attempt to barter or negotiate, and if it came down to our survival or there's, obviously take the necessary measures to survive. We would steer clear of any small family owned gun stores, as there would no doubt be some wild people protecting their stock to the end.

Thirdly, we abandon all of our vehicles, and take one vehicle to a local Hummer/SUV dealer, where we will take 2 Vehicles. We split the driving between the four/five of us in both vehicles, with an equal amount of weapons, ammo, and supplies in each. We only plan on using these for a maximum 48 hours from our current location to the coast.

Fourth, we drive to the coast stopping at places that are abandoned to scavenged for left-over supplies. We pack as much as we can into our vehicles, being careful to make sure food is properly stored and preserved for our journey. Within 5 (in case of a flood or deluge) to 48 hours we will reach the coast.

Fifth, at the coast, we procure an abandoned boat, yacht, some sort of sailing capability that can hold provisions for upwards of a few days. After procurement, we stalk up on food, medical supplies and new weapons. The yacht can most likely not hold a vehicle, but it would be ideal.

Sixth, after we have prepared our vessel, we are heading due South to the Caribbean. Depending on the state of the world, we'd ideally like to land on a small abandoned island, or an uninhabited one. Our sailing voyage would take us down the Eastern Coast of the United States, being careful to not stray far from the shore line.

Seventh, after arriving at our destination, or scouting several destinations, we plan on settling down to build a new type of society that is based on knowledge and information, rather than wealth and capitalism. Several trips to the collapsed country of the U.S might be necessary, and probably will be for a good few years (if we even survive).

What are your plans?

Escape? I dont plan on escaping anything, be it civil turmoil, natural disaster, divine intervention....
Ill face whatever there is to fear and i will stand and defend my family first if neccesary, my faith second (which presumably wont need defending), and the Constitution, in that order and against any that would threaten.

No sence in running scared just to prolong the inevitable...
face your fears, fight with integrity, and if need be die with honor, that will be my escape

So let me understand your plan, your plan is to be a looter and rob innocent people?

I am pretty sure most people with supplies are not going to sit by and allow themselves to be looted and robbed.

Your "plan" is more reaction than it is a plan. If your plan is not something that is already, as in right now, executed by 80-90% then it will be too late when TSHTF. Before you get defensive think about what I have said. Then make a real plan.

Your plan should also include avoiding other people to the greatest extent possible. They will be desparate and they will be thinking about the same things you will be thinking about. Not a rgood ecipe for your survival.

Which is why we have weapons.

And yes, it is my plan to be a robber and looter to escape this miserable nation. Considering most Americans are overweight, and attached to their homes, I doubt we'll have much trouble in the suburban areas.

I have 20 acres in the west texas hill country to get the hell outta dodge. I have muliply routes of travel. Accounted for traveling by car , bike or foot. All supplies including my B.O.B.are already in large tupperware totes by my front door ready to be loaded at a seconds notice. All my guns are loaded with all my ammo ready in handheld cases. My entire family including "good" friends know that if the SHTF during the day (everyone at work) to stay right where they are and I will come get them. Everyone has a copy of the bug locations coordinates in there vehicles and in a safe place at their houses. My plan isnt flawless but I can garuntee I will be one of the most prepare mother truckas head outta town in less than 30 mins.


If SHTF for real, theres gonna be ALOT of people running around like chickens with their heads cut off.

For sure, not going to get defensive as it's a good perception. Part of it is going in prepared, and yes avoiding others at all costs is a big thing, one that I didn't mention. Trying to stay as hidden as possible is something everyone is going to need to do.

As said, it all depends on the situation. If it's a CME, or EMP of some sort, obviously that changes the rules greatly. Again this just hypothetical, and more for fun than anything else, hence the (It's fun to think about). That's why I asked for everyone to share their ideas, instead everyone wants to label me a "deviant," which the majority of members on this website are anyways.
