2010 F-150 Platinum
89,000 miles
Great A/C
Big heated and cooled leather seats
Great stereo system
Rear seat for extra food, firearms and ammo
Truck bed for any gear.
Power sunroof
Power rear window slider

Since I do not plan on bugging out, I figure that I may at least be comfortable running around trying to help my friends and family. I also figure if I’m taken out defending my homestead, I’ve done all I can do. I was willing to die for freedom in the military, I’m certainly willing to die for it now.

That'll work
 
A horse can't stop bullets. 🤷
That’s true, but if it gets to the point of being randomly shot while riding a horse while just taking care of personal needs, you’ll be lucky to survive regardless.

James Garner was in a movie once that satirically addressed this idea. He was applying for a job as town sheriff. They handed him the badge and it had a clearly defined bullet dent in it. He said what’s this? The mayor said it’s the former Sheriff’s badge. Garner said, looks like he was lucky the bullet hit his badge. The mayor said, he sure would have been if it hadn’t been for all those other bullets coming in from all over everywhere.

Everyone has a plan. None of them are fool proof. You can be the wisest, toughest hombre on the planet, one lucky shot could permanently change your plans.

My sensei, 35 years ago said the only way to even briefly win a fight is to completely avoid it. If you have no course of retreat, fight and pray your skills sustain you and you opponents luck isn’t as strong as yours.

The conflicts I’ve been involved in have been horrible, instant and chaotic. I’ve employed every skill I’ve ever been taught, both military and civilian. I’ve been lucky so far because my opponents luck has not been as strong as mine. Plans can change in an instant regardless of any amount of planning and preparation. Don’t forget to also prepare spiritually. My faith is in Jesus Christ. He is the best preparation anyone could have in the world we live in today.
 
Not sure I’d want to be the only one for miles driving around after shtf. Gangs would try to take it from you. Law enforcement of the provisional government would try to take it from you. Y’all read the book right?
 
I don”t think AD has to worry. It might be an overnight into town though on horseback.
I may have to for those that still got gas. First house 7 miles from the freeway. 6 mile either way to a city from there. Remote is the place to be.

the way I see it the further away from people you are the better off you are,,,,,, hell even if they know you are out there 20 or 30 miles into the mountains,, no one will come looking

For me it’s a balance, but I agree I live where most people would want to think about bugging out to. They just dont know about it being that close. The first half mile on my road usually makes people turn around.
Life can be tough enough getting things done. Much less 20 or 30 miles in the hills. I have 10 projects going at a time to consolidate my town trips.
 
Nice, but attention getter. Like previous poster said. Everyone would be trying to steal it from you. I would think most interstates and roads would be clogged. An ATV might be best choice staying off road. No protection from bullets though. I still would like to have it but I'm not rich.

Suggest a layered approach: Trucks, ATV, Mule/Gator, Horses, Motorcycles/dirt bikes, mountain bikes, boats, roller blades.... It is going to depend on the situation.

For bugging out of the city to a location, I think the 4 cycle dual sport/street bike is unbeatable. A family of four needs two bikes. Anything wider limits options around parked traffic. If the bridge out of town is filled with parked cars, anything with four wheels may as well be a dually truck. The key is high speed low drag trek away from people before they realize the magnitude and get desperate.

Good point. I'll depends on situation. Maybe cheaper option is taking what car, truck you have and reinforcing it. Spikes steel plates...Starting to get mad max here. Ha ha. But you never know. My first instinct would be to hunker down where I'm at. But that would only last a day or two. I live in the city as soon as they clean out grocery stores there coming to the houses. I plan on moving soon.

The best plan is to GOOD BEFORE TSHTF. Timing is one of the hardest things to gauge. If you know the balloon has gone up, better NOT to hunker down. Grab your go bag and beat feet.

People have gotten used to waiting for someone to tell them what to do and you want to be long gone before they figure out that no one is going to save them (an EMP event comes to mind). I have seen estimates as short as 12-24 hours these days before all hell breaks loose.

Better yet, if you can swing it, be at the BIL full time like a couple of people on this board are.

anyone in a city that thinks there is even a slight chance of SHTF,,,, should at the least get out of the heart of the city to the fringes with more than one way out,,,,,, I made my move 20 years ago,,, you give up some things but you gain so much more

It's about 5 miles to town for me. So horseback is to far for me. I got my RZR. 🤷

And absolutely impossible to fix in the field with the resources that will be available. A 'reliable" truck will have a mechanical fuel pump, a 4-barrel carb and an extra condenser in the glove box.

BTW, nothing like making yourself look as well funded as the enemy. That won't work out well either.

Five miles is too far? We did a walk/trot for 100 in four days once...of course the horses weren't pasture puffs.
 
Living in a ghost town has advantages. Guess I am about 10 miles from the closest Walmart. When SHTF and this mess comes unglued, guess I will run into town to top off supplies before the crazies arrive form the big city 90 miles away. The ranchers that have worked this land for 5 or more generations aren't too welcoming. Maybe I need to borrow my neighbor's backhoe and dig a trench. That trench can sit there for years and I might not even need it, otherwise I can fill it in slowly as the need arrives.
