bugging out

This is part two of the “World’s Greatest Survival Vest” In part two, the concept of Urban Survival is highlighted. As a prepping/survival instructor, I teach both Urban Survival and Bugging Out.

Let me help you face reality by exposing the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

One of the difficulties of Urban Survival is trying not to draw too much attention. Ideally you don’t want to be seen. The current myth is to be a “gray man” and blend in. In reality, depending on the scenario, blending in could be practically impossible.

In the worse case scenario, being an Urban Survivalist is not as easy as many preppers and instructors want you to believe. Urban Survival is a challenge that will take extraordinary skills.

Some well known gun instructors in South Florida have jumped on the Urban Survival bandwagon. For the most part they are pretty much idiots. Unfortunately, I know them and they are pretty pathetic, but they are a fortune for their classes and are raking in the dough.  The saddest part is that there are a few people who come from out of state to hear his hype.  Although he claims to have inside government secrets and military expertise, he is little more than a  blowhard.  Not the best shooter either.

The point of warning you about various instructor is to help you hang

on to your wallet, and to start engaging common sense.

One of my missions when I teach prepping/survival is to help individual face reality by expose the secrets, myths, and truth about Urban Survival.

Prepper College Forum

When preppers get together, its inevitable that they will engage in the “bugging out” conversation. This entails discussions of bug out bags, bug out gear, bug out strategies and tactics, bug out vehicles, and bug out locations.

These conversations can be pretty interesting and enlightening. The conversations can also be frustrating for some beginning preppers who start to realize how https://www.acheterviagrafr24.com/viagra-online/ much they

still have to do. The amount of preparation that is needed to bug out can be daunting. In fact, many preppers freak out and start thinking they will simply bug in or shelter in place and choose to be urban survivalists.

Bugging in or sheltering in place can be an acceptable option, and for some people their only option. But giving up on a bug out plan and strategy should not be your reason for choosing to bug in. Bugging out has some real advantages over bugging in, or urban survival. So before you decide to bug in or bug out, you really need to learn a great deal more.

My own strategy is to bug out, but I have also become an expert at bugging in. Depending on circumstances, I will have the skill sets and supplies to stay or go – to bug in or bug out. And that is the option that I teach. Be able to do both.

Since this is a forum on bugging out, I will give you some insights into what you need to know and start posting more material on the subject. But keep in mind, reading about it and not acting is worthless. Having a road map in your car will not transport you to your destination. You need to take action by starting the car and driving towards the destination. The same with prepping and bugging out, information is the beginning step. Then you need to start applying the information.

When I teach classes, I start by sharing information. Then I move into the hands on part of a course, where you actually have a chance to apply the knowledge. This method I use for self defense and firearm training, survival training, and prepper training. Knowledge and practice are what develop a skill set.

So if you are a beginning prepper, do not be frustrated. Learning how to do anything including bugging out is a simple step by step process. Like eating an elephant, you do it one bite at a time.
