BUG-OUT VEHICLE OPTIONS

YOUR SURVIVAL COULD BE RIDING ON YOUR CHOICE.

THERE ARE SOME PRETTY WILD HYPOTHETICALS OUT THERE, BUT WE ARE SEEING THE BUG-OUT OPTION BEING UTILIZED IN REAL LIFE MORE AND MOREHAVING A PLAN (AND ALTERNATES), TRAINING AND THE RIGHT GEAR CAN MAKE A HUGE DIFFERENCE IN HOW THINGS GO.

Alexander Graham Bell was famously quoted as having said, “Before anything else, preparation is the key to success.”

If we apply this to the realm of survival, we must first imagine just what we’re preparing for. Essentially: What scenarios are you concerned about?

There are some pretty wild hypotheticals out there, but we are seeing the bug-out option being utilized in real life more and more. It doesn’t matter if it’s a volcano, earthquake, hurricane, flood, fire or even civil unrest. Having a plan (and alternates), training and the right gear can make a huge difference in how things go.

We’re going to focus on some great vehicle options that can help get you where you need to go.

PLAN YOUR WORK

The first part of the plan includes a bug-out destination and, if possible, multiple routes for reaching it. While we cannot anticipate everyone’s particular needs, we’ll be covering a wide range of options so you can find one that closely matches your situation.

Where is your bug-out destination? How far will you have to travel? What type of terrain will you most likely encounter?

Answering these questions should help narrow down your vehicle choice. Because most people don’t have the problem of an overfull bank account, look at the vehicles we’ve featured and see if they are within reach—or if you could take something you already own and repurpose it.

Some vehicles might surprise you. While four-wheel drive (4WD) is a plus in most environments, it isn’t a strict requirement. Everything should be tailored to your most likely bug-out scenario. Also, basic supplies should be loaded into each vehicle—namely, water, food, camping gear, medical supplies and protection equipment. Just how much you take can be tailored to each vehicle.
