Why Bugging In Is Better Than Bugging Out

Every disaster brings its own set of unique circumstances to the forefront.  When the situation warrants, if you have the choice of bugging in or bugging out bugging in will be the better option.  Why you ask;  let me elaborate.  By bugging in you have the following advantages.

  • You will be in familiar surroundings.
  • Food and water in your refrigerator and or pantry can supplement your survival stash.
  • You’ll have additional time to improve your homes defenses.
  • Your home will offer shelter against the elements.
  • You’ll have access to clothing, blankets and other survival gear.
  • You’ll have access to weapons and ammunition.
  • You can better protect your home from looters.

The better prepared you are, the better prepared you will be to deal with your survival situation.  Trust your instincts and stay alert.

  1. I think it’s always easier to defend familiar territory. You know the entrances and the fortify the weaknesses. The only catch is having enough supplies to last but if you are prepared and have stocked up, you can last a long time with rationing your resources.

      You said the magic words….if you are prepared. Even though I am well stocked I always catch myself saying I still need more cans of spaghettios lol.

    I wonder what they are using to secure the windows. I need something like that for my house.

    I can see the benefit of both staying and leaving. It is good to know the area in which you will be taking shelter and no reason to leave if your safety is not being threatened. On the flip side, you risk more attention from looters when you stay in an urban environment compared to bugging out to the countryside.

      The house in the picture is located in Poland and it is slabs of concrete that are mechanized, at the push of a button, to roll into place and cover the windows. It’s a pretty ingenius design. I often wonder why if given a choice anyone would live in the city if the option is available to live in the suburbs or the rural communities.

  3. I admire your work , regards for all the great posts .
