People romanticize bug-out vehicles, especially the idea of Mad Max type vehicles.
There are actually some great memes out there. My favorite: 70s Ford Bronco, open top, with sandbags, jerry cans of fuel, Stinger missle loaded in the back, with a mounted 50 cal on the roll bar, and a mounted SAW machine gun for the driver.
Lot of fun to imagine having one of those, but unless the Zombies or Aliens attack, its is probably more novelty than anything else.
Since there is always a possibility of having to bug out, and some times that we really must bug out, lets discuss some considerations for bug out vehicles:
- What is the event that is leading you to bug out?
- Where are you going?
- How much do you need to carry?
- How far do you need to go?
- What will driving conditions be?
"General" bugging out for wild fires, floods, weather events, volcanoes, earthquakes, etc, just use what vehicle you have.
After an EMP or CME
Conflicting opinions by leading industry experts on what actually would happen to modern vehicles in the event of an EMP. Studies differ, and it partly depends on the distance from the blast, and the intensity of the blast, but it might range from a total knockout to shutting down but being able to restart.
During Civil unrest
Use what you have, take what you can, and GO
Society is in the toilet
- Evaluate the risk
- Are you safer leaving than staying?
- Only criteria to the decision.
- Decide when to leave
- Early morning may be better than afternoon
- Decide what to take
- FIRST PRIORITY is to stay alive and not be hurt
Zombies - you'll need something with a substantial bumper and good wipers ;-)
Alien Invasion - We don't have an answer for this one.
They can travel at the speed of light and shoot those green blob death rays.
"Proceed at your own risk."
