Top 5 Bug Out Locations In The US

Print page

Bug out locationsBugging out, or getting the heck out of Dodge when calamity strikes, is a tricky matter. There are several different factors that you need to consider when choosing your spot including accessibility, vulnerability, resources and your ability to get there.

Today we’re going to talk about the top 5 best bug out locations in the US. I’ve tried to pick some in every part of the country so that you have some options regardless of where you live.

Depending upon what the disaster is, you may not be able to go too far when bugging out so it may be wise to choose a location that’s not far from where you already are. That way, you can reasonably access it if you only have 1 tank of gas or have to go on foot.

{adinserter emp}That being said, if you’re serious about prepping and it’s an option for you, I’d recommend living in your preferred bug-out state, at the very least.

You may even choose to live in your bug out location and make it a bug in place instead. After all, if the place is secure enough, there’s no need to leave!

5 Points to Consider when Choosing a Bug Out Location

  1. Accessibility by YOU. First and foremost, you have to be able to get to your bug out location. If not, prepping to bug out isn’t going to do you any good at all.
  2. Resources. Is the property close to water? Is there plenty of game so that you’ll have fresh meat if you need it? Is the soil rich enough to grow food in? What about firewood?
  3. Vulnerability. How easy would it be for others to overtake your bug out location? Is it easily seen from a road? Are there trees around it to provide cover if you need to defend it?
  4. Weather. Is your proposed bug out place prone to extremes in weather? Does it regularly experience droughts or flooding? Does it get a lot of snow? If so, can you still get to it if it snows? Can you survive in the temperatures if need be in order to get there on foot? Also, consider the upkeep that will be required if you don’t live there. Snow can collapse a roof quickly so you’ll need to maintain the property a bit more carefully than if it’s in a location with a moderate climate.
  5. Location. Is your proposed bug out place close to major cities that may be targeted for attack? Will refugees from the city be able to find your place?

As you can see, there are many details to consider when choosing your bug out location. These are just a few and depending upon what you’re preparing for and how long you think you’ll need to be there, your list may be substantially longer!

Now, considering these points, let’s look at some great places that you may want to consider.

The Rocky Mountains

RockyMountainsLocatorMapColorado, Wyoming and Montana are wonderful states that offer a ton of locations that would make grand bug out locations.

The land is relatively affordable compared to many other places and it’s fairly easy to obtain permits to build whatever you want.

Guns and hunting aren’t frowned upon and resources, including water and game, are plentiful.

The only real downsides are that you can expect significant snowfall and low temperatures, and your place may not be easy to get to if SHTF in the winter.

On the upside, everybody else will have a hard time getting to your place, too!

The Appalachians

Appalachian_region_of_United_StatesThis mountain chain offers more temperate weather than the Rockies but it’s significantly more populated.

The land is generally cheap and guns and hunting aren’t just OK, they’re part of life.

Resources, including water and game, are plentiful and the land is typically rich enough to grow plenty of food, even on a smaller lot.

The major downside is that most of the major highways throughout the Appalachians lead from one big city to the next so travelling to your location may be an issue if people panic and clog the roadways.

However, there are many back roads that you can use to avoid the highways. Get to know those BEFORE you need them!

Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana

These states are as far south as you can get unless you want to go to Florida, which we don’t recommend because of population and transportation issues. Alabama, Mississippi and Louisiana all offer plenty of hidey-hole type places that would be easy to defend and easy to get to.

Fresh water is plentiful and so is game. Temperatures can be wicked hot in the summer but are fairly temperate in the winter.

The only major downside to these locations is that there are a few major cities though none that would be high on the list for nuclear attack. You may have to worry about defending your bug out location though.

North and South Dakota

These two states have vast expanses of unoccupied land and the population is low.

There also aren’t many major cities and none really that are high up on the target list for attack.

Both states offer plentiful water and game and the soil is good for growing food. Hunting is huge so guns aren’t a problem.

The biggest downside here is that North and South Dakota get lots of snow and cold weather so be prepared for that.

Another concern is tornadoes. Some counties have higher instances than others so be aware of that when you purchase your property.

Pacific Northwest

Pacific NorthWestOregon and Washington are arguably two of the best states to plan a bug out location in.

They both have a decidedly anti-government mindset and guns and hunting aren’t frowned upon. The population is low in many areas.

Resources are plentiful and fresh water won’t be a problem in most areas. Some property prices may be a bit steep but just keep looking. You can easily grow food throughout the summer months.

The downsides of bugging out the Pacific Northwest are that you’re going to be dealing with lots of rain, especially in Washington, and you have to watch out for volcanic activity around the Mount St. Helens area. There will also be plenty of snow in the winter.

We know that many people consider Alaska a great place to bug out to but for us, the foul weather and the lack of accessibility just didn’t appeal to us. If you already live there, then great! If not, consider other, closer locations first.

Also, we didn’t include Texas on the list because of the border control issues. Depending upon the crisis, that may be a huge issue.

Now that you know OUR picks for the top 5 bug out locations in the US, what are yours? Do you have anything to add that we missed? We’d love to hear from you in the comments section below!

    You forgot to mention Maine, especially mid to northern. Cheaper to live. Lots of farms, very rural,hunting, fishing and growing. A lot like Alaska. Downside, harsh winters, but many still heat with wood, which is plentiful.

      The problem with Northern Maine is NYC is not THAT far away, nor is Boston. You'll be dealing with a LOT more survivors/gangs/thugs than folks that live in the sticks of the upper Midwest or high mountain country (MT, WY, ID, etc.). No place is perfect but the key is the fewer people living in your area the better. For instance, there are 12 people in my township (36 square miles) and the largest city (over 1 million) is 8 hours (350 miles) away. Central AK would be the best spot in this hemisphere but my guess is less than .01% of all people could survive for more than a month or two there ,that's about 30,000 people in the entire US. The bottom line is no place is perfect but if you live in a metro area and have no friends or family that live in the very remote areas of the US, you're screwed.

      • The best thing that could be done with New york City would be to have the government blow up the tunnels and bridges going to it, and declare it to be a separate nation. Or, give it to the UN. It's a definite fact that most of the rest of us in the State of New York don't want them anymore than you folks do.

          It is very sad in this day and age and in these times to find such ignorance. Do you even know the "them" that you are speaking about. Do you have any concept of where "they"mostly are,in the highest populations. When I look for information it saddens me to see uneducated and ignorant comments. Do some reading and educate yourself you'll be more likely to live longer and have a better life.

    • SW Missouri, isn't highly poplulated, located within 90 miles of population areas, fish and game plentiful, also access to Ozarks, South East Kansas all plentiful of rivers and game and even more remote bug out places. Hills, caves, 45 minutes from Army National Guard facilities, location of civilian airports w/i 30 miles, also private plane locations. Any silos here have hay in them (including the old missle sites).

    • I bought some land up in the northeast corner of Nevada, in Elko county. The particular area only has about 500 people in an area of about 1,800 square miles.

    • griffinaero says:

      I expect, when the dole stops, the rats will leave the cities after destroying them and go foraging for what they need in gangs of up to 30, killing and pillaging without remorse. With stolen pickup trucks or even National Guard attack vehicles no fence or gate will mean anything except a sign: "Here It Is!"
      A lot of folks are going to get killed if they think they'll defend their home from such a force.
      I think my spot in the country (NE Florida) is really about as good as it gets. 5 acres with enough woods to be hidden from the road with an innocuous little dirt lane for access and several very nice places that will surely be attacked before mine, allowing us time to bug out to the backwoods before the mob gets to our place to find it looks already looted. The doors will be hanging open, the place will look ransacked, and there'll be nothing to even look for!
      You see, when it looks like the crap has hit the fan we'll prepare for attack by changing the place that way, and setting up a hiding spot out back in the woods a few yards. Sure, we'll be armed, but only for protection in case we're discovered.
      Consider: trying to shoot it out with a gang of probably better experienced thugs is a totally losing proposition; you or someone in your family is going to be shot and then what are you going to do? We may lose our garden and some stuff, but when they're gone we'll still be OK and have something to come back to.
      So, Rather than buying a remote bug out place you'll probably not be able to get to I suggest you look much closer to home. Just look around with a new perspective, a more realistic one. Probably your own home right now will do, you needn't go far to hide while the thugs are there...they'll quickly move on to more promising targets.

  5. I think much of the far NE (Maine, NH, Vermont, upstate NY) could be good. The southeast (south of Macon, GA, NW of Jacksonville. FL out toward East TX) has some advantages such as were mentioned: easy terrain, decent seasons (summer can be hot), plenty of water and game, long growing seasons, acceptance of "off the grid" life styles, only a few large urban areas but those are rather isolated, independent spirit with wide acceptance of guns and respect for privacy. While the occasional hurricane can be a pest, that also provides good "cover" for prepping as most can be explained (when necessary) as "hurricane preparations". Don't forget the proximity of military installations: the East coast has plenty and the Gubmint owns vast sections of the Western half of the US! This could be "good news/bad news" depending on whose S hits whose F. This also applies to the northern tier of the Midwest (ND, SD, WY) where many ICBM and NORAD installations are located. Can you say "targets"? Idaho isn't mentioned; too remote? And the Appalachians are nice but far more populated than many realize and bordered by many large cities. things could get tight there far faster than most would expect.

    • I dont think you realize how little Appalachia is actually populated. There are stretches of hundres of miles of nothing but mountain and wooded areas with nill to no one around in somecases for many miles... Not to mention it would be some much harder to find someone in those woods. Just don't get caught on the wrong persons land 😉

  6. Why are there any locations like Arizona and New Mexico selected. They both have mountain ranges, forests, water; the Colorado and other rivers that make them good bug out areas. Weather is no more problems than the other selections made in the article.

    (13)

  7. Yeah, great idea. The locals are ALL waiting with open arms, for a flood of suburban and urban free loaders to descend on them like a plague of locust. They all have massive, table cloth covered picnic tables, laden with biscuits, corn on the cob, fried chicken, potato salad and green beans for everyone. They welcome everyone to over fish their favorite fishing holes, kill every game animal in the woods, and devour their farm animals and crops.
    These folks will be blockading roads, turning people back, or hanging and shooting looters.
    If people want to have bug out locations, in the wilderness, BUY REAL ESTATE, even if you have to cooperate and share it with family and friends to make it work. The whole Bug Out idea is a massively flawed concept. Better to prepare, prepare, prepare, then run and pray.

    (33)
    (0)
    • I always thought part of the Bug Out idea WAS to buy real estate, or share the purchase of the same. Your claim that the BO idea is "massively flawed", reveals that your understanding of it is massively flawed.
      I live right next to one of the largest military installations in the world. My family has a G.O.O.D. plan that involves our partial ownership of very rural property that is neither near a metropolitan area nor in radiological proximity to a high-value military target (assuming we get advance warning). We also have a plan to share this with other Christians who are similarly prepared and equipped to survive, defend, and assist others.
      A good bug-out plan (or SHTF plan, or Get Out Of Dodge plan) includes full or partial ownership of real estate AND a plan to help others.

      • Too many of you are worried, stop worrying first thing! Secondly, we NEED each other!!!! No one person or husband wife can defend what they have and where they are. Grouping together with those you TRUST will do what they need to do and help each other to survive is essential. Knowing the warning signs of when to go is VERY IMPORTANT. When it all goes south, you will have a MAX of 3 days before people start to gang up and when the gang mentality starts, its fair game. There will be no police, no EMS, no Fire Dept, NOTHING to help you but who you have brought into your world. Being able to see those coming after your position is essential.
        Take a look at Bullet Proof Your Home. Its a very good read and will enlighten very much.

            Some of us are loners by circumstance or life choice or both!
            I personally could move quickly but had found it necessary to get rid of much of my real estate earlier in life and only having another country to go to which might NOT be too quick to move to.
            Care to exchange comments and ideas re such options here?

      • The Bug out plan to most people is to pile into a truck or SUV with some guns a first aid kit, a few Mountain House number 10 cans, and get on the highway, and find a welcoming wilderness spot to set up camp. Most people are not buying land for that purpose.
        Its a shame how much rural land i now being sold by developers who subdivide it, add a bunch of restrictions, and turn it into HOAs in the woods.

  8. I would extend the Dakotas into northern Minnesota winters and all! Also, I would only include eastern portions of Washington and Oregon with Idaho in the Pacific northwest. The actually state governments of Washington and Oregon are getting quite leftist because of all the liberals that have moved there along the coast from California.

    (21)
    (4)
    • Eastern Oregon and Washington are quite dry with little to no rain. In fact, Oregon is more than half desert. Open space, but little water or trees.

      Even the major cites in Oregon and Washington are experiencing drought over the last few years - and this year has been unusually warm and dry.

      (6)

      • Thats true... and concerning Eastern Oregon, what standing water is there is usually alkaline. Unless you're experienced at high dessert/ arid survival, one probably wants to make it as far to the center of the country as they can. IE Colorado Rockies, Northern New Mexico, Northern AZ, West/Centeral Montana, panhandle of Idaho, and Northern Washington. Im staying away from the coastal regions of Or, including the Cascades. Everyone with 2 legs will be headed there, in addition to whatever cali-folks make it out

  9. Vern Swanson says:

    You say that Washington and Oregon are anti-government, but they consisitently are big government Democrat controlled states. I'm glad you didn't mention the one place in America which is the best "Place of Refuge." This is an area ringed with high mountains (stunningly beautiful), with climates that range from cold in some places and warm in others (both alpine and desert), a place that is not too close to highly populated states, it has the highest population percentage that are Republicans of any state, it has low crime, is inexpensive to live, and has a devotely Christian population, and are the most generous people charity-wise by percentage of income in the United States. I live there so I really don't want the place too crowded, even though the people here are rated the happiest people in the Country. They love strangers and are very hospitable. So, if you "Don't want to raise your hand against your neighbor" in the 'Last Days' you might consider this gun and scripture loving place. One last thing, the people in this state are very organized and have one to two years supply of food against any disaster scenario. They will share it with the streams of people who come to our state. If you guess the state, which you didn't mention at all, please continue not to mention it.

        Not sure about ALL of the cons in that state "not mentioned", we now live there as well in the northern part. While every single state has it's drawbacks be they population density, climate, topography, economy, etc. one needs to determine the best place for THEM and live with it.
        This IS our "bug-out location" so we are staying put. I am not wild about the culture here, not at all,even though I am well versed that behavior and "belong". Not a native though, thankfully, we've got excellent neighbors that are like minded. Winters can be a bit rough, NO place is "perfect", so make do where you are, or get to a better survivability locale.

          • I also live here, but in the very southern desert part. Only 4% of our food is local, the rest gets shipped in. The big worry for people down here is that the "sinners" from the big metro area south of us by 2 hours will make their way up, and our city will be the first line of defense for the state. I have family up in the "alpine" northern district, so we have a G.O.O.D. plan that involves us going north if it gets too bad. Other than the water and lack of food though, it's a great spot!

    • Interesting to say the least, I agree and disagree regarding staying away from cities. The only main good reason for living in or near small or large cities and assuming your prepared, it makes it a lot easier to feel, see and hear bad guys coming, whereas in rural areas, unless on a mountain top to see all, you'd better be REAL prepared and/or have set up's that allow you to see, feel or hear who is coming. Besides if it's your time to go, so be it. I'm curious where do people interact and/or hook up with other like minded that want to financially among the other mutual ideas together to buy and share land.

      Come on. Yes, LA and portions of TX can experience flooding. Yes, if the Yellowstone Caldera goes up it would cause a lot of problems. But to make extreme exaggerations is just silly. People lose credibility with such statements.

      Nancer, I've tried Tennessee a couple times and while some of the countryside is nice, and the climate isn't that severe the cons outweigh the pros, ALL things considered. Somebody here mentioned the enclaves of Muslim groups in certain places in the country and Tennessee is one of them. They happen to have one of the largest mosques in the county there and they hardly have any Muslims in the town where it's built! What does that tell you about their plans.

      And there's also that monster fault going right through the state that's long over due for a huge Mississippi River altering earthquake that will Devastate most of the area...

      Elvis didn't even hang around much after he discovered Hawaii, LOL

      I'd look elsewhere if you can.

    • Only parts of Tennessee would be safe. Middle Tennessee and West Tennessee would not be. East Tennessee has part of the Appalachian Trail but around the trail area would not be very safe. The best thing about E. Tn is there are TONs of good caves accessible to water or with water running through them. There is good hunting, fishing and wild plants to eat. The game is plentiful and there are mountains adjoining the Appalachian Trail that only the locals are familiar with. I have a friend who lived 3 years in one area and never saw one person except when he went into town for supplies. The higher elevations does have some snow occasionally but if using a large cave for primary residence, that really would not be a problem. If you take the time to research the areas it might be a life saver.

    It's nice to think that going to out of the way, remote, rural areas would be good places to bug out once SHTF. Just keep in mind folks that our enemies, i.e., islamic terrorists also prefer those places. In fact according to the FBI there are numerous "terrorist training camps" spread out throughout the USA at this very moment. I am from Texas and we have them here too. My son who is in the U.S. Army Infantry lives close to a major Army base in upstate New York where he is assigned. It's a very rural area with a little over 700 people. My wife and I visited him and his family when he returned from his 4th combat tour overseas last year. I was very impressed with the little town. It's got one stop light, one convenience store, one tiny post office, one good sized building that houses students from pre-K to 12th grade, a small all-volunteer fire department, also many small farms, where you can purchase organic grown produce and dairy products. I've traveled in many different parts of the world and in my active duty years in the service and most of the 50 states. This little town is in my opinion in the upper "10" of best places to live in the USA. The people are friendly, helpful, have a sense of community, patriotic, and many homes fly the flag. This is my bug out place where my son bought a home built in 1850. Of course no place is perfect. Winters are harsh and snowfall is one of highest in the USA. However, I found out that not even 50 miles away is a islamic site of the same nature as we have here in Texas where I live. Actually, law enforcement could hardly do anything to prevent these islamic groups from setting up their camps that they have bought and therefore legally theirs as long as they don't blatantly break the law. So my fellow Americans, just watch yourself and make sure there are no islamic terrorist training camps next door to you when you bug out to a seemingly peaceful, remote, rural area. Our islamic enemies seem to prefer these places too where they can keep a very low profile until they're ready to do their dastardly deeds. Take care. Lastly, if there are any doubters about the reality of islamic terrorist training camps in the good 'ol U.S. of A, go ahead and google "islamic terrorist training camps in the U.S.A.

    • I'm not ashamed to say I live in sw MO, winters are cold and we do get some snow. But not as badas northern states, but got lots of wooded areas lakes and streams, game and fish. We're far enough from New Madrid fault line. The only real threats are tornados, severe weather and radiation. There's a few nuclier facilities to the North. You can chek on line where they' located and do look where the jet stream is going. I too would like a Christian community, my husband is retired military and i'm a nurse. God has called me to help in a community. Im stocking med supplies as well as other prepping stuff we have guns ammo, i have a crossbow. And for fun my husband welds and makes what he calls "Zombie tools" god bless you all

  18. I live in South Dakota, and I love how the winters are overrated!! Yah, we might get a day or two of snow, then it melts in the higher temps, yees, we ice up once in a while, again it's rarely for more than a week. Freezing temps for a couple months, but again freezes, then warms up. We have lots of caves and old mine shafts, where the temp won't drop below 58 and they heat easily, if you block off what your not using!

  19. The problem with any of the locations is there is always something. Maybe it's bugs that cn transmit equine virus, Haunta virus, or sleeping sickness, (So much for being close to water and having a plae to grow things!) If you coose a dry place, you don't have the bug problem so much, but you may have problems obtaining water and growing things. I'm sure with ingenuity any of those problems can be overcome. Water is the most important item. If you have a place of your own, awayfrom everything, you could have a wel, and from there, have an aquaponic farm. Meat is going to get scarce no matter what unless you grow your own and keep them away from predators and others.

    We have located in the southern part of the Rockies. We have a well, and good soil, but I think aquaponics may be the answer to farming, because we have tried, and the critters eat everything, and what they don't the insects get Plus it isn't as labor intensive as farming. So the wildlife that may give you meat will also be eating your veggies, fruit, and trees! Shelter, fire, water are the main things. Spare parts, self defense items, and inaccessibility work pretty good. However, the eye in the sky sees everything. Unless you are located in the montains, you may not be able to escape nuclear bomb fallout and other man made things. I have collected medical books, and supplies as well as other how to books. We are looking up javelina recipes....

  21. The trouble with bugging out to the northwest, to North or South Dakota or anywhere along the Rocky Mountains is the Yellowstone area and surrounds. There is a subterranean volcano under that place that is long overdue to erupt. If (when) it does, living west of the Mississippi River will be dangerous. It may even be an extinction event, depending on the size of the eruption. For certain, Washington, Oregon and California will be gone, along with most of the western US.

    • Dan...it ain't going to matter a lot! Sending you this, and it's all connected!!!

      Fast coming down the pike!!!!
      The US has to become a third world and bankrupt country within the next
      couple years, to advance the cause of the New World Order, and also
      because the US has NO part in the end times prophecy's! If in fact in 2017
      Israel as predicted , signs a 7 year peace treaty with the Antichrist! 3½ years later
      Russia will invade Israel and be destroyed, then China and many nations
      plus all Muslim nations will invade, Scriptures says that a third of
      mankind will die! at the end of the 7 year period, the Lord sets up His
      kingdom in Israel!! PEACE and goodness will finally reign over the entire
      earth. If there is a Rapture, it will be before 2017 could be anytime between
      now and then!! But I believe it will be a could days after the Shemitah year,
      on the feast of trumpets!?
      Judah Bin Soloman
      I base this on the prophecy of a late 12th Century Priest/Prophet named
      Judah Bin Soloman. He said that in 4 Jubilee years, (200 years) the Turks
      would take Israel. It happened exactly on cue! Then he said the Turks
      would hold it for 8 Jubilee years (400 years) then leave without being
      driven out. An airplane from UK flew over Israel and Jerusalem with the
      word Allenday written on both sides of the plane, perhaps the
      manufacturer of the plane, or in memory of a early 1900's UK General with
      a like spelling. The Turks thought it was their spelling for Allah, and
      that it meant they were to leave, they packed up and left Israel, and UK
      took it over, giving back to the Jews in 1948.Then Bin Soloman said, "On
      the next Jubilee, Israel would get Jerusalem back"...happened in the
      Jubilee year of 1967! Then he said" On the next and last Jubilee year,
      Israel would sign a 7 year peace agreement. The next Jubilee year is
      2017!! It will happen!! All the evil and ungodly will be done away with.
      The start of this Shemitah year was Mid August of this year...Ends about
      the same time or in Oct. of next year, when all hell will beak loose!!
      (The largest stock market crash in history, happened on Elul 29 last day of the Shemitah
      year, and every stock market crash happened in Shemitah years, Nations rise and fall in
      Shemitah years...This might be interesting for you to look at!!!)
      Video on upcoming Shemitah!!
      (This video with Johnathon Cahn is about the Shemitah that just started, Sept. 25 and what it means...what is likely to happen...what usually happens (Like always!) And 1 day after it's end Sept. 13 2015 the Jubilee years starts, more great prophetic things to happen to us!! Fascinating!!!) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=arBBn-1c0Rc

      Shemitah Year!!!
      I strongly suspect that the coming Shemitah is good news!!! and I look upon it as Great News!! I strongly suspect that the Shemitah year ending Oct 12 of 2015, Will see a total collapse of Wall St., our economy, and our country! But I also think since the day after Elul 29 is New Years day, AND the Feast of Trumpets...The Lord will blow the trumpet and say, "Come up hither" and the Rapture will take place! On Oct. 4 of 2015 the Day of Atonement takes place, and that is considered a "last chance" to make amends or atone, ask pardon, and ask the blood of Jesus to cleanse you of all your sins. The Day of atonement is considered by the Jews as a 'last chance' in the year to make right with God...that's what it's for! So let's use it! and use it before the end of the Shemitah year. Here's a few happenings in Schemitah years!
      Many nations rise and fall at the end of Shemitah years...Elul 29 it is indicative of very major changes, orchestrated by God. Nations rise and fall on Shemitah years! Every major collapse of the stock market was in a Shemitah year, and every US economic collapse in Shemitah years!! Expecting a biggie this time! The biggest of the biggies!!!

      Do you know that there are 10 devils triangles some say 12, called Vile Vortices around the world...evenly spaced between northern and southern hemisphere, and from each other. All with a radioactive aluminum isotope that is working to slow down the inner workings of earth. It will stop our magneto sphere to make it another Mars, a no atmosphere planet that no one can live on....and isn't it amazing it will succeed around 2023!! We will lose the magnetic field that disperses the sun's rays, and all its radiation...People on earth at that time will be baked!! BUT...The Bible says the sun will beat upon the people, causing them burns and huge problems...so...it's gonna happen...Christians will be gone of course, that much is promised us in the Bible!! A Scientist and his large crew tried to use an IMP to destroy the vortice in North West Africa, and they were all vaporized, after the experiment failed when a guy pulled an electric cable across the vile vortice. They are no more..not even a particle of them! They believed "aliens" or 'Demon spawn' put these Vile Vortices in place!)

        • The Rapture is in Paul's writings, but part of it says, "You will not see the troubles of Jacob..ie Israel, so therefore we won't be around at the furthest of 2½ years after 2017. When Russia attacks Israel, But this year will be the end of one of the 7 year Shemitah years, along with the Feast of Trumpets the day after Elul 299, which is Oct. 13 on our calendar...And the Bible says he will sound the trumpet! the one feast Christ did not fulfill...the Feast of Trumpets...so I'm prone to believe it will be in Oct, rather next year - 2016 when there is no such feast!! Besides our economy will totally collapse about that time, so it would save us much too!

    • Mahatma Muhjesbude says:

      Actually there's at least a hundred active volcanos in the Western third of the country including the Yellowstone Cauldera which when it blows will make every where within a 500 mile radius virtually inhabitable afterward if anyone's still alive, and its devastating ash deposits and adverse weather influence will wreak havoc out to a 1000 mile radius.

      There are a lot of things people forget when trying to choose a good permanent BOL. But when you are thinking about out West, always remember that the government owns around 30 perent of the land in America.

      Most of it is in the Western Third of the country. In Nevada, for instance, The
      G owns over 80% of the land.

        Mahatma Muhjesbude, you as well as 95% of American citizens are wrong about federal lands. The US Constitution forbids the Federal Government to own land other than (1) 10 miles square for the national seat of government, Washingto DC, (2) military "powderhouses" which would currently include sites of storage of supplies and administration, and (3) land comprising US territories which reverts to State-owned land upon the territory's reaching statehood. Nearly everything the Feds do is unconstitutional, including such bogus departments as BLM, US Fish & Game, EPA, FEMA, Dept. of Homeland Security, etc. Every Federal Government employee is required to take an oath to "Protect and Defend the Constitution of the United States", and it's an oath to God. You need to study the Constitution as you have believed the lies of our rulers, who have gradually turned into tyrants and dictators. Revelation has started!!!

        • Mahatma Muhjesbude says:

          Whip, I might be 'wrong', but you're not 'right'.

          The Constititution allows the government to possess and control lands in three forms: Territories, Enclaves, and 'other properties'. There are no acre amount restrictions to this format. The U.S. government purchased Louisiana and Alaska under this authority.

          What you are referring to is the actual government agency restrictions to prohibit all public access and utility under strict 'official' functional proprietorship.

          But of course they can and do 'get around' that 'limitation' virtually any time they want where they have expansive military bases and 'other' government facilities.

          As far as other 'Federal Lands' under the police state Federal Land Management tyranny, These are technically prioritized by the states as authority, and private reset by purchase, but since the Fed G thrives on acquisition and taxation they can scam everyone into 'never minding' that they control their 'Federal Lands' simply by saying they are purchasing and maintaining and 'controlling' the land for 'public usage'.

          States have the option to jump through some 'hoops if they want to 'own' the land, providing they can satisfy the EPA on 'maintenance' and preservation requirements. But most states decline due to financial limitations to afford this.

          So, yes, as usual, the government regime is abusing the Constitution.

          But my point in context here had nothing to do with the 'Constitution' or the continuous government violations of it., and is still correct in pragmatic application to this article, ie., the government possesses, controls, manages, and secures, and therefore "owns'about 1/3 of American lands.

          YOU need to 'study' the Constitution and get your head screwed on tight enough with a reality tune up because it sounds like you're getting a bit 'scatter-brained'?

          Start with a little meditation on some profound wisdom...
          ..."it's not that people don't know so much...it's just that so much of what people 'know', just ain't so!" Mark Twain.

  31. Consider Indiana, folks. Good hard working people with a penchant for hospitality and temperate weather. The "snow belt" ends around Lafayette IN so we don't get snowfall measured in feet. Coldest weather comes during the last two weeks of January and seldom makes it below zero. I have lived in Atlanta GA and their weather was quite similar. Normally, you don't see weather below 20 degrees F.

    Summers can be very warm, but not intolerable. Few days near 100 degrees F.

    Southern Indiana would be best, with rolling hills, plenty of fish and game, and good water. Many small lakes and ponds.

    My advice would be to get there early though. As hospitable as Hoosiers are, they can be quite protective when it comes to interlopers. If you are known as one of the "good guys" before the SHTF, then you will be welcome.

    Indiana is still a Christian state and sodomites are not welcome. We would have to be considered "conservative" politically, although there are an equal number of democrats here. This is largely due to a leftover of when Democrats were still the working man's party, MANY years ago.

    Right now, you can be warmly welcomed by Hoosier Hospitality, but we are fierce when protecting friends and loved ones.

  33. The next world war would be the only major reason for bugging out in todays world realistically. One can try to argue that economic collapse or grid failure would be reasons but if those events transpired it would merely be an indication of the pending global war. With that said bugging out may buy you a few weeks or a month but in reality its not going to matter where you attempt to hide because once nuclear bombs start detonating that contamination is going to be in the atmosphere as well as the waters all over the planet. If wild life cant find fresh untainted drinking water and vegetation its going to die off quickly, the same holds true for man kind, if you cant find fresh clean water your dead, cant find wild life to hunt, your dead, even if you find animals to hunt, odds are going to be good that they are contaminated and by ingesting them you will also be contaminated. Cooking meat does not remove radioactive isotopes.

      This idea that a nuclear war will make the whole world radioactive is hooey.
      Consider the history of Japan...both cities are now, and have been for many decades, fully occupied and successful. The bombs dropped were extremely dirty by today's standards. Advances in technology have made the radiation much more limited, the byproducts decaying to safe levels quickly (it wouldn't make sense to spread a deadly cloud over your own country would it?).
      No country is going to want to blast the US (except the Muslims, whose lifestyle is stone age anyway) because our submarine deterrent is totally prepared to fry anyone in return...no protection from retaliation is possible, not even an EMP can affect the all-metal sub below the ocean's surface.
      Our spy satellites can track any missile launch, probably not in time to interdict, but to determine who to fry.

  36. Bugging out or Bugging in? I don't think anyone really realizes what's coming. We're looking at a massive economic collapse 1000 times worse than the great Depression. Americans are going to suffer horrendously and wish they had not survived what's coming. One reason is because of our population problems. Also think about how dissociated we are from are food source in America. Another reason is because Americans have lived spoiled rotten lives and everything is taken for granted ( all our modern day conveniences). You think you can trust people, band together, be safe? When adversity strikes and everything is gone, Human Nature rears it's ugly head fast! I live in a part of the country where I deal with horrible, selfish, spoiled, rotten, people, on a daily basis. I know when it all goes south, these people are going to snap and cut your throat for a piece of bread! And these are the "good people". What about the ruthless criminals?

Not true, especially in uber-Liberal Washington, where they do stuff like make collecting rainwater or building a pond on your own property, illegal, with heavy fines. I have a friend up in Washington and Oregon, and he says they are also systematically closing down dirt back roads and campgrounds, to "save the environment". IMHO the ultra-Lefty Greenie politics of Seattle and Portland cancel out the more Libertarian leanings of the dryer, more desert like Eastern sides of the states.

That area is east of the fault zones, so as long as you don't build beneath a bunch of overhanging boulders and such. Your far enough west of Yellowstone that while you will still get ash...maybe a foot...you can recover. No nuclear reactors nearby...safe from floods, tornadoes, hurricanes, etc. And the weather is mild. Not too hot and not too cold. The soil is rocky but proper garden preparation and the use of a green house solves that. Water in the mountains should not be a huge issue. Anyway, just my two cents worth.

  42. Northern Minnesota...
    Yes winter can be tough...
    But it is abundant with wood, Wild game, lakes rivers ponds and lots of fish. Rich soil for growing food. And guns are not frowned upon here. Expecially from Central Minnesota north
    And easy to move over the border to the north if need be...

    Hi, would it be a bad idea to live near Fort Knox, Kentucky? We were thinking of buying a property near there. Thanks.

  44. I have been thinking of this for some time. It seems to me that a bug out location should be within one tank full of fuel plus perhaps one 5 gallon can or perhaps 2. For most that means about 500 miles from home max. I have been thinking of the Ozark Mountains which is within that range. (not mentioned). I am also thinking that one will need some friends to share the site with. One person I do not believe can do it by him/her self. I think perhaps 3 to 6 adults is maybe the range that would be about optimal. Beyond about 6 adults the space requirements would be too great. Less than 3 there would not be sufficient to do the required work that will be required. I also think that barter might be a very important consideration and silver will be the best barter material--especially pre 1965 dimes and quarters. Next might be 22 rim fire amo. Chickens, potatos, wheat, and peanuts will be very important crops to consider raising and growing. Chickens can be raised just running wild. They can take care of themselves. They love to eat bugs. You are going to need friends in the surrounding homesteads. Best to make friends with them at least 2 years in advance. You will need water so I am very skeptical of drier areas. You will need about 40 inches of rain a year. You will not want to live very near a river because flood water could be the end of you--at least 30 feet above the nearest river. A horse will become extremely valuable because gasoline might become unobtainable. A plow too. The Amish are going to be in a very good position if society collapses. Perhaps a location near them would not be without merit.
