Modern computer driven cars and trucks wont work... leaving nothing to hook your camper to but a tree... thoughts?

Amen to that! My wife's grandfather had an old fire engine red Willy that he would drive all over the Green Mountains. That would certainly be a great bug out vehicle!

Re: Bug In or Bug Out??


Wow, a lot depends on what's going on....

On a Thursday afternoon at 2:15pm my wife is at work and three of our four kids are at school....
Would fetch the kids and wait around a bit for the wife. If she doesn't show by the time I think she should then the kids would go down to her grandparents and I would 'load up' and head out looking.
Once everyone was accounted for and gear was loaded we would more than likely head for the hills.

Here is my troop hauler.

I live near Ft. Detrick and Camp David in MD, and work close to DC. My wife already knows when the big one happens, if I'm at work, she's to bug out immediately. Get the kids from school, grab the go-bags, the handgun, the .22, and take back roads to her parents in PA. I'll catch up when I can.

Saddle up my horses and disappear for a while deep into the woods.
