This week’s DestinySurvival Pick is Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It’s Too Late, by Scott B. Williams. Reviewers say this 302 page paperback is a must read, and I agree.
Anybody who’s preparing for survival must anticipate as many options as possible. When sudden catastrophe strikes, one of the decisions you and I have to make is whether to shelter in place or bug out. There may come a time when there’s no choice other than to leave home for a while.
What if you’re faced with rapidly rising flood waters? Maybe it’s a threat from a forest fire. Or you need to clear out in the face of an oncoming Category four hurricane. What do you do then? Where do you go? What do you pack? How do you get food, water and other necessities beyond civilization?
The first third of Bug Out is a primer that helps answer those questions. The remainder discusses areas throughout the country where you might bug out to. Perhaps there’s a place not far from you which you didn’t know about.
No matter what part of the country you live in, find out what you need to know about escape routes and how to get the additional info you need. Find out what gear and supplies you’ll need to survive. Then practice. Go camping. Scope out travel routes and places to escape.
Being prepared with an escape plan makes all the difference. With this book you don’t have to hunt down numerous sources on the Internet. It’s all here, logically, practically and clearly.
Scott B. Williams has been my guest on DestinySurvival Radio several times to talk about other books he’s written. He’s soft spoken and interesting to talk to. Because of his extensive traveling, he has firsthand experience and knowledge of what he writes and talks about.
Bugging out is serious business because you want to avoid trouble or further calamity. You need guidance from someone who takes it seriously. That’s what you’ll get with Bug Out.
