    Okay, so we see posts on bug out bags and vehicles. If you have any of those, where are you gonna go? You have the stuff, but you may find yourself in a precarious position if you think you can just pull onto somebody else's property and start camping.

    I guess you could go to a national or state forest area if you don't have your own property.

    I was just thinking of all the talk about supplies, yet I have not seen anything on planning beyond that. You don't have to give gps coordinates, but where are you going to go?

    I'm going to somewhere suitable! LOL! I have thought about it a few times and I would go to some public land or have group of friends and have specific house to meet at etc...

    That is an excellent question, and one that most probably have not pondered.

    When I think of the need for a BOB, I'm presuming things are pretty bad... vis-a-vis New Orleans Katrina or similar situation where the total structure of LE and government are in total chaos. Maybe an attack by a foreign enemy 9-11 style in which it's up to you to take care of yourself and your family. So then, you'd just need to play it by ear as far as where to go.

    Texas of course
    A good friend of the family has a little over 400 acres of land away from town. Plenty of food (rabbits, deer, turkey, hogs, snake, pheasant, quail, pond stocked with fish, veggie garden), good water well and anything we'd need for a long time. There's about 25 of us that would meet up at his house if it came down to it....that's as far as we've planned.

    Myself, I'm getting hold of all of local TGT members and at that point a decision will be made.
    I want to surround myself with people I can trust and also have similar skill sets.

    Since we live in a nothern suburb of Dallas I'm not sure where exactly we would go if our home were to become uninhabitable. A lot to consider such as, are our cars running and are the roads open to travel? My biggest fear is of a dirty bomb set off in the southern areas of Dallas/Ft Worth in the summer months with a strong southern wind blowing. In that case, and with some kind of advanced warning, we would probably head east away from the wind and heavyist traffic. It's good to have some kind of plan but at this time and without more information as to what kind of emergency it is, I don't have a definate bug out plan.
    We have plans of where to go in case of a tornado. That would be to grab our pets and huddle in a central, walk in closet, and pray it's low on the Fujita scale. A F4 or above would scour our house to it's foundation thereby erasing said closet, all geezers and cats in it.

    I"m thinking the local wild life would be scarce in the event of a natural disaster or man made disaster (i.e. terrorist attack, Foreign attack, etc...) and I would like to have some MRE's on the ready.
