Having read many of the threads, comments, and suggestions here, I thought it a good place to ask.
I'm a truck driver that's away from home for 2-3 weeks at a time. And... Home is only a storage shed and UPS store mailbox.
In my home area are my bugout/survival items. 4x4 Jeep, camping gear, food, guns, ammo. My problem would be getting back to that gear should the SHTF
in a rapid way. Carrying a small pack with a few days worth of food, water, compass, map, and clean underwear
isn't a problem.
But, has anyone thought of what they'd do if they were possibly hundreds of miles from were they need to be? Is there a network of people (preppers)
that might offer temporary asylum/assistance? Besides population centers, major highways, and large bridges, any other areas that should be avoided?
In addition to the few basics above, I'll also carry fish line/hooks, waterproof matches, antibiotic cream, various bandages, a couple of knives,
possibly a small 9mm (even though it's against the law for truckers to carry firearms).
Any other suggestions?
To better explain my situation, I'm single, I have no family or friends in this area. Family is about 1300 miles away. I came down here for the work.
I refuse to move back to the extreme liberal northeast just to be near them. ( I know... Shame on me)
My bugout plans, once connected with my gear, is to head for the hills. Hopefully hook up with others that would wish to create a mutually beneficial
community for everyone's survival.
But getting back to my gear is what has me worried. No matter what I was hauling, no matter where it's supposed to go, I'd drive back this way as
far as I could go. When I can go no farther, your help would help.
