This video is an interesting discussion about route planning for bug out scenarios. Though it focuses on the Seattle area you can apply the same logic to your location. What’s important to grasp, in my opinion, is that the area discussed poses a fairly unique challenge in that Seattle is surrounded by quite a few lakes (I had no idea) and, therefore, makes bug out that much more complicated due to obvious bottlenecks of bridges. What you should take away is to understand those unique geographic “obstacles” that may make evacuation difficult in your area. For example, besides waterways, are there high mountains to the east? A desert to the south? An impassable river to the west? Think about these obstacles and plan for how to get around them now while everyone else remains happily oblivious. Though I normally don’t mingle YouTube videos and reference posts, you might be interested in this post at TheSurvivalistBlog.net on Bug out tips, advice and common sense that provided quite a bit of useful advice too.
