I'm pretty well organized. I have places to go, friends in several states. I've been on the road and refined what i carry to fit my needs. Since my go bag is already in my vehicle, I only need to grab what is laying around (computer, clothes I want, etc. ) Papers, weapons, first aid kit, food, survival gear, etc. is already in the vehicle and/or located at different locations. I can be gone in 5 minutes or even less. I have been reducing my possessions or placing them in secure locations. Every house I have can be left or abandoned. They are only houses (possessions). How many of us can and are willing to just leave if it is the right thing to do? How many say they will stay and fight/die for the house/land?

Maybe I can contribute a few tidbits here. I'm semi anchored in a couple locations, very close to lots of acres of BLM land, so a while back (3 years) I figured I'd get "mobile." If for no other reason than to scout the west between the two places, able to go far enough off the grid to really explore. Got a decent used 21 foot toy hauler. Talk about a bug out mobile! This thing has a rear ramp, so we can get our his/hers scooters inside, kitchen with microwave, shower, 27 gal fuel station, built in generator, 130 gal water tank, 14 gal propane, and with the scooters out, can sleep 6, otherwise, 4. I figure I could load it in short order, and it has high enough ground clearance it can handle BLM roads. I pull it with an old diesel pickup, which has 60 gal transfer tank, so, combined with the main tank, I can get around 1000 miles range, with trailer. 1600 without. We use the bikes when camped, but have the truck if we need to collect firewood or groceries. We have treked in this thing for weeks at a time, up to a 90 day trip last year. It makes a great spare bedroom when parked behind the house, and a great temporary refuge for down and out friends or family who might be short term unemployed or relocating, or whatever. On bugging out to boonies, if one hasn't "roughed it" before, I might suggest they take a trip out to central Nevada sometime, put a list together of what they think they'll need, (water, water, water) then, get back out in the desert and spend a week. You will have completed "sticks 101" and it wouldn't be so hit and miss when necessary. Back before time, I used to do that on a motorcycle for a week at a time. Couple pounds of salt pork, mess kit, ka-bar, fishing gear, a bolt action 22 and a brick of ammo. Oh, and a magnifying glass, for when the matches get wet!

Kym,
I work mobile. I've led global teams. I'd love to have a converted, ready to roll bus in my back field in case I needed to hit the road. Would love to have a boat too!

Something to think about keep Your fuel tanks full on Your rig's Use it down to 3/4's of a tank then fill it up! When the electricity go's out there are no working gas pump's then all You have is the fuel You have stashed.

Well Dan, I guess we're all screwed anyway as far as Alex Jones goes. I may be an ostrich in very sandy country, but I quit reading Jones quite a while ago. He wasn't doing my mento-emotional state any good. I am going as fast as I can to prep. If I ddn't get there before the armada of drones, then I don't. Hell I'm still working on tents!

Howdy, just found this group and joined. I've been thinking about "going mobile" for a month or so now. Still much to ruminate on. But having looked at low-cost housing involving a trailer, it's a short jump from that to a trailer that moves. Also, a moving target is harder to hit, etc.

During the great depression 95% of Americans were self-sufficient and thy figure 7 million people died of malnutrition or related causes today thy figure 5% of the American population is self-sufficient. Just a little something to ponder.
