Deciding to bug out is one the most difficult decisions you may have to make in a crisis. Making the proper decision could be critical to your survival. Unfortunately, the need to bug out may be forced upon you and your family due to a number of circumstances that are beyond your control.
As a general rule, your home will usually provide the necessary shelter and security for your family and as a result, bugging in will usually be your best option. The “comfort factor” will always be higher in familiar surroundings where you will feel safer and more secure. Many times In a crisis, the need to bug out will usually be a temporary one. Once the crisis has subsided, things will usually return to a more normal state and you can return to the safety and security of home.
Unfortunately, there is a distinct possibility that there may not be anything left when you return after the crisis is over. This may create a situation where your need to bug out may be for an extended period of time or there may even be a need to bug out permanently.
Any emergency planning should take this very real possibility into account. If your home is destroyed or winds up being unsafe to occupy due to structural hazards, you may be faced with a situation where an extended bug out may be required.
