Fortunately, my area for bugging out will be the forest. Northern California / Oregon are my spots of interest. The only drawback is if a SHTF event
occurs during winter(mild winter mind you, never dropping below 2-5F on the worst days typically), it will slow down our ability to move. However,
water will be abundant and me and her will have our own packs equipped with all necessities(they're already being developed.)
Game, as well, will be plenty abundant. We're already studying regional plant edibility and bringing seeds with me has been a no-brainer since
bugging out started becoming an extremely viable option(what the armed forces did after the Boston bombing).
This country, world, I should state, is on a extremely rapid descent into a complete police state where there is no law and the governments have
became utterly corrupted to the finite core, and the only way it will change is by divine intervention or from the inside out. We've seen it coming
and now we're here.
There is only one bigger f**k you than fighting back or trying to change the system, and that's not needing them.
It is time to become independent humans again, these types of things some of us have waited so long to start learning and now we're paying for it,
literally, right out of our pockets. Survival and living in the wild was something that was passed down generation to generation in earlier cultures,
and is something that is quite LITERALLY priceless. Now, people are too damn comfortable.
Time to suck it up. We came from the primordial soup of rudimentary, unpleasant survival and we very possibly might return to it.
Aside from our packs(machete, axe, first aid, water container, mess plate, magnesium bars/flint bars, rations, etc), I will also be bringing a book
bag consisting of multiple subjects of interest in developing the needed information. My book bag will consist of hunting, trapping, general survival
skills, regional plant edibility, warfare tactics, rigging, gardening, orienteering, carpentry and architecture(eventually building a cabin or such.)
and some good philosophical books, eastern philosophy, probably some sci fi etc. to keep the mind at peace.
My game plan is to probably bug 50-150 miles out of civilization. After a year or so of peaceful encampment, I would imagine month long scouting
missions during the summer would be in place for determining the societal structures recovery, or lack there of.
Just one hell of a long badass camping trip is the way I look at it. It does the heart, body, mind and soul good to have some humility every now and
then, and it looks as though we may be forced into it. I'd rather be prepared than not.
