Do I stay or do I go! Not just a great old song by The Clash, but an ongoing debate and topic of discussion everywhere preparedness is discussed. Some are sure they will bug out, they have a plan to live off the land (good luck with that) and others just know they are going to guard the fort and hunker down. The reality is this, those issues are very situationally dependent.
The same person (if they act with reason and logic) will choose different answers. To help me formalize this process I developed 12 questions to ask yourself both in advance of and during a disaster to make this decision with logic vs. emotion.
Tune in today as we consider the following…
The time to answer these questions is not in the middle of a disaster but right now. At this point you can plan, form contingencies and be prepared for a variety of outcomes. That way if the day comes, your mind is ready to act and you can make the best use of the resources you have. As always, how you act and how you think is more important then your resources.
You plan to bug in, you have your generator, you have your food, you have a means of defense and you are prepared for whatever may come, or are you. Today we step back a bit from the obvious and from some common thinking that isn’t very realistic, to examine how prepared we are for bugging in.
