How are you supposed to Stand your ground if there's a nuclear threat or thousands of ground troops occupying your neighborhood ! For myself I have a
small bug out bag , knives , fire starter, first aid in my jeep TJ , it's my daily driver. I also have a ATV . I will be heading up to my camp first
sign of trouble !
If there's a nuclear threat, you'll probably find out when you see the explosive flash and are blinded by it, or when you're whole body is on fire.
Nuclear threat isn't necessarily something told the general public.
Soldiers invading your neighborhood? I'm pretty certain they'll be quite keen about removing weapons and vehicles from private citizens that they
might find useful, if your not killed right off for attempting to do something suspicious or anything conspicuous when they show up.

If you have a decent BOL go for it, but don't take main roads ever. If you don't then yes stay put I'd say. Ya if you knew how to sail you could go
anywhere, but I have heard it's very dangerous too. Especially to try and sail by yourself it's only for professionals, so that's probably out for
most people unless you stayed very close to shore but then you might hit bottom quit easy.
Sailing is easy. I do it solo all the time, and it's not difficult. For people with families, it might be easier.
While most people are running for the magical hills which will be crawling with other people also running for these magical hills such that even
hunting for a cricket or grubs to eat will be faced with fierce competition, there will be marinas absolutely FULL of super expensive deep water rated
sailboats that will never be missed.

Sailing is easy.
All one needs is supplies, some common sense, some navigation maps, and just a little bit of know-how.
There will be less competition for resources on the ocean where one can fish for extra food they haven't brought. Wind generators provide plenty of
electricity for radio, making fresh water, lights and other such and the wind itself provides power to go anywhere on the planet.
Sailing is easier and safer than attempting to compete with millions of other humans that have the same exact plan to run for the hills where these
magical hills will be come so infested with people, you'd have been better off staying put, or turning to the dark side of hunting and eating 'long
Take some sailing lessons. You don't have to own a boat to know how to sail. if ever a SHTF thing happens, then, you'll be free an clear to take
ownership of something you might not have ever been able to afford what with most of the good sailboats ranging at a couple $100,000 and into the
Even a cheap sail boat can get you all sorts of places far far away from other people.
Other people are one of the bigger problems when it comes SHTF. Other people means competition for resources, and other people can always be a threat
to you and your family. If you're going to have a plan, have a plan that most other people don't. Have a plan to go some where most other people
aren't going to go.
