You beat me to it.
I don’t live anywhere near NYC ,but that is primary — to bug-in. Bugging out would be a very dangerous thing to do no matter where you live. I would only do it if the alternative was much, much worse.
Bugging out or bugging in has been a big topic of conversation. I am the only one advocating for bug out, at this time. My reason is I don’t want to be caught behind enemy lines.
Yeah, stay put where you already have food, shelter, clothing, medical supplies and defense. You know the lay of the land at home but not so much out there somewhere. Bugging out is dangerous and a last resort.
The author lost me when he said prepping started in the black communities of NYC. Really? Mankind has prepped for eons. I don’t know how he learned prepping from Deliverance when everyone else learned to run like heck when some hillbilly starts squealing like a pig.
