When anyone speaks of being prepared they normally speak of bugging out. I'm not 100% sure why anyone would want to do this in every situation. Granted, I live in the middle of nowhere and leaving my home would not produce may benefits that I can see. Why wouldn't you simply prep your home for whatever situation that you are anticipating and then protect it? I am likely being naive. I look forward to the answers. Personally, from my home I can hunt everything from deer and hogs, to squirrels, dove, and quail. I am walking distance to fishing. Farming is an easy thing in the country.
