Build the coolest bug out bags ever conceived and wait for the mushroom clouds to appear. In a magnificently coordinated evacuation everyone rides off into the sunset arriving unscathed at the fully self-sustaining retreat a few days later having fought through several zombie roadblocks. You write a book about your adventure and become famous the world over. Now let’s wake up in a cold sweat when reality hits…The Gut Wrenching Reality: The lights go out for good.Too much time passes before realizing it’s not just another rolling blackout. Group members are scattered all over the city, with several key members out of town on business unable to make it back.
He has generously agreed to share his insights and recommendations with our community and you’ll likely find, as we did, that his analysis is right on target.

However, not having a pre-arranged destination of some kind, with pre-positioned supplies is absolutely not acceptable.

One member breaks down and decides to ride it out in their basement.
Your own children tell you your crazy and sit in the front yard in defiance because you won’t bring the Play Station 4, fear then turns to anger and rage.
The next morning travelling westward towards no-man’s-land the truck runs out of fuel on a lonely back road trying to circumvent the next chaotic metropolitan area.
After abandoning the vehicle and walking for three days, a hastily constructed checkpoint appears a hundred meters past the turn in the road that was not correctly scouted.
It will be a trying time for all involved, but success can be achieved if you a clear and concise strategy in place. Solar storm, nuclear EMP, or a derivatives crash; any one of these could trigger a national or worldwide socio-economic collapse on a scale nobody has ever seen, with the subsequent destruction of life, liberty and property almost unimaginable.
Out of the smoke and stench of the collapse, one nasty fact remains; not living full time at a retreat will require bugging out, it’s just a matter of time.
The journey for most will be long and treacherous, may take weeks, months or even years and may result in injury or casualties to the group.
