Unlike other bug out references, this book is going to look into some of the other possible scenarios than just natural disasters. Most books talk about having a 72-hour kit or a 7-day supply of food and water. I ask you, for what? So you can wait for the Public Utilities to come back on? To be able to hold out long enough for State and Federal agencies to get to you, to feed you, bring you water or “to take care of you”?
What if the scenario you needed to bug out from was the State or Federal Governments? What if you woke up in the morning to go to work and martial law was enacted, or overnight there was another Terrorist attack like the one on 9/11? Can you consider, a nuclear power plant 15 miles away from you going into a possible meltdown, turning on the morning news and seeing that the Stock Market crashed. Realizing that you can’t get any cash from your bank or ATM , and even if you could the grocery and gas stores have already been emptied.
I could go on forever about all the what-ifs. The main question is, would your family be prepared for something like this? Would you be able to bug in or bug out for the long term, for weeks, months or longer if needed? Could you survive and provide shelter, food, water, warmth and security for your loved ones?
The next big question is to bug in or bug out? These are both very big questions and require some very careful thinking, planning, training and practicing.
The main focus of this book is not to teach you ALL the survival skills needed to survive all of these possible situations, but to make you think, plan and prepare for them to the best of your ability. You must realize that this will be done while dealing with possible extreme survival and tactical environments and situations.
This book is the first in a series of situational survival books. The second book in the series will be The Art of Bugging In.
