I think that every person with a BOB should also know ALL the backroads and trails in their area, because all the primary and secondary roads will be traps in a SHTF situation.
I have family and other "foxhole" friends that will be joining me on my remote location in the event of "turmoil" whatever the cause. Each of them has a map of backroads and hiking trails to my place. Many of them live more than 400 miles away. They have made caches along the way to ease the load of having to carry everything.
Some of them go to their caches from time to time and camp out, using the things in the cache and refreshing the cache before they leave.
I cannot recommend highly enough this source for knowing the backroads, trails and old routes for getting from point A to point B without getting off dirt in the USA.
Pavement will be the doom of many, IMO

And this is why I also have a blow torch, bolt cutters, and a hack saw in my big BOB.
Always be prepared.

Might be a good idea to have a print-out of Google Maps directions to your major destinations with the "Avoid highways" option on, ahead of time. Also, for those on the Eastern seaboard, it's a good idea to know how to get to the Appalachian Trail, as that provides passage up and down the country, albeit by foot. Plenty of hidey-holes there.
