The Fallacy Of Bugging Out


The Fallacy Of Bugging Out

Survival Acres

April 18, 2012

Many websites, blogs and forums have covered the topic of bugging out in excruciating detail, all under the assumption that this will be a necessary escape plan for many of us when the proverbial shit hits the fan. This notion is predicated upon the belief that escape and evasion, necessary for your immediate survival will be a (likely) event that you must plan and prepare for now.

However, nothing could be further from the real and actual truth. This cherished myth is a deceptive and dangerous notion that has little place in reality. I’ve long held a stance against this notion because in nearly all cases and all situations, this is a very bad idea with oftentimes fatal consequences. Bugging out is embracing the refugee lifestyle – a very bad idea. Refugees throughout history have fared very badly, suffered extreme hardship and deprivation, with many not surviving the experience. There is a far better alternative to this.

The rejection of the “bug out” mythology flies in the face of the so-called ‘expert advice’ and theory being proposed by many websites and authors, who are also very active in selling products and gear specifically oriented around this concept. You could say quite rightly, that there is indeed a agenda at work here, but it is not one in your best interests. Hold onto your pockets and read on.

Bugging out entails leaving everything you are, and everything you own, and everything you use, day in and day out, and everything you cannot carry or transport with you, behind. Not only behind, but inaccessible, unusable and abandoned. Potentially forever.

    An interesting view that has many merits. Bug out in England is a none starter, except for a really fit and knowledgable person. The facts are plain wherever one lives, family and food dictate you defend at your location.
    The one thing I have always prepared for is roving bands / gangs. Cities will empty in hours, therefore the choice of permanent settlement is the most important one you will ever make. Also local knowledge of who is going to turn feral is as important, as is a strong family and friends group. It is no secret locally that I mean business whatever. My stance and attitude to many, I feel, puts them under no illusion as to how I will react.
    Associating with like minded folk and finding common ground is the only way. A co-op of the prepared.
