Bug Out Vehicles
bug-out vehicle is any vehicle that you have prepared to get from point A to B during a disaster.

It can be your everyday vehicle, but some believe that older vehicles, pre-1980's, are better able to withstand a electrical magnetic pulse (EMP)

If you don't want to walk, you will need one of the following types of BOVs

Pre-1980's car, van or truck; four wheel drive if possible.
Believed to be able to survive an EMP.

1981 or newer car, van or truck; four wheel drive if possible.
Some say they will also survive an EMP, but they do have more electronics and are harder to work on yourself.

Motorcycle - The older versus newer debate is the same for motorcycles. They carry less, but are easier to maneuver through traffic.

Bicycle/Tricycle - They need no fuel and are vary reliable; some have electric motors.

Boat - Don't forget about waterways; if you need to build one, PVC catamarans are a good choice.
