Thank you so much for starting this thread, as I am quite torn on this for my and my husband (I am the decision lead on this topic) and I'm glad to
have to chance to read other views.
As of right now, I lead to to build a bunker, which means my house. My reasons are:
1. We live in a gated community, not inside a major city, with guards.
2. This community is on a lake (fishing, water).
3. Unfortunately, I have not yet purchased the bug out vehicle I want. If I had it, I would be more prepared for a bug out. As it stands, my BOB is
ready for a temporary evacuation (in a Sandy-like situation), but beyond that, I am not ready to bug having no suitable vehicle or secondary place to
Nitpick me, if you care. I will argue this out with anyone as I want my eyes to open if there is something I'm missing.
Edit: Forgot to say
4. I don't think my survival skills are up to par to live in the woods for an extended period of time. I would rate my survival chances hunkering
down -even with people- much higher than if myself, or myself and husband, bugged out to the land. With no secondary retreat, we'd be in the wild and
I'd rate our chances very low.
Combine the fact I have no secondary place to go, no vehicle, I basically have no choice but to hunker down and hope I'm positioned well.
