Bugging out to where?

Jockey's Ridge North Carolina

A lot of preppers think they are going to bug-out to the wilderness when the SHTF, but I have news for them, our civilized world has left very little wilderness to bug-out to. If it were not for our national and state parks, there would be none. All of it would be owned by someone, and if that someone is you, are you going to welcome them onto your property? Probably not.

So bugging-out without a place to go is going to be difficult; for example, my wife and I are traveling along the Outer Banks of North Carolina this week, and if it were not for the national parks, all we would be seeing is house after house and retail strip mall after retail strip mall.

Just like the song says:

Our population has grown to the point that we can now drive across the county and never be away from people coming the other way.

So where will you go to hide? The best place will be on your own property unless you are forced to leave.

As always, this is just my opinion.
