ReadyNutrition guys and gals, this article covers some things you can do to prepare when bugging out is the best option in a collapse/SHTF situation. Such a concept is quite the conundrum and not what we wish to do. Truthfully, there comes a time when you have to stand and face whatever it is that is coming against you, with no other options. The actions you take will be dependent upon the situation you are facing, and no two families (although the threat may be the same) will face a challenge exactly identical in nature. These are guidelines that you can use to help you organize if flight is the only option.
Establish Your Needs and Wants
Such a flight is best accomplished by a good estimate of what you are going to take with you, and what will need to be sacrificed.
Remember, a certain amount of what you may leave behind can be offset in terms of loss by what you cache or safely store before faced with the choice of rapid departure. So how much can you transport? What percentage of your supplies are you prepared to cede in order to escape? Have you prioritized and organized what you are going to move out? Have you inventoried your items and protected them? Are you aware of the dangers you may be facing when bugging out?
Repeating that concept aforementioned that your best preparation occurs before an event happens, you can cut down on the time, emotional distress, and overall misery by prepositioning a percentage of what you will take with you and storing it accordingly. Such can be referred to as a cross-loading plan, and it can make the losses you are about to sustain more easy to bear.
As it varies per family, this is the key concept here: you must determine (estimate) the percentage, broken down by specific items and their quantities of what you will take.
