SWU101rbo: Realistic Bug Out Planning

One of the most common topics in the prepper and survival world is bugging out. Unfortunately, the subject is also filled with myths and half-truths, with tons of truly ridiculous information about it floating around online and elsewhere. In this class, we’re going to take a practical, down to earth look at emergency evacuation. What it means, what it doesn’t mean, and how to prepare for it.

We’ll cover:
–Red flags that should tell you to get moving ahead of the crowd
–Choosing bug out locations (hint: you don’t need to buy 100 acres of wilderness)
–Route planning
–Transportation considerations

We’re going to discuss in detail what should be in a bug out bag (BOB), common mistakes often made when assembling a BOB, and frequently forgotten items. Attendees at live events are encouraged to bring their own bug out bags to the class.  For an online alternative we’ll have a discussion area where students can submit photos or lists of their bag contents and Jim will offer feedback.
