You’re a wild dreamer!
Where would you get your trained, armed troops?
Stealth is the only answer to security. Nothing to know, no one to know it. Keep it that way.

Living in Suburbia I realize that my house would be an easy target for a group of folks. No assets for a bug-out place, although I have scouted for camping spots. I wonder if “camo” of sorts on my suburban home would work.
Live in the downstairs with boarded-up windows and blankets so NO light could get through. Upstairs have windows broken out, some smoke soot up the outside walls and eaves. Perhaps a bunch of crap strewn around the front yard like it as already been looted.
Some have posited the idea that after awhile the roving gangs will have killed themselves off - so their threat would be reduced after awhile. So if you can survive until then you might make it.
NOt a wild dreamer; and you don;t know me, and won;t.
Where we plan to go offers ‘stealth’. it’s very rural, way off the beaten track, offers cover and concealment, and controlled ingress routes.
WRT the people and their training. Let’s just say we have that covered. It’s not a militia thing, it’s what they/ we have done in our past, and what we are mentally (if less so physically) prepared to do. it’s more than just our nuclear family.
the net is that we are doing the right things to get away from certain death - a suburban stick-built home in a development near a major city.
I am convinced we could NOT defend in place and survive. We have FAR better chances getting away, and then regrouping.
You will feed the hive. It’s just a matter of when. If it weren’t so late, I’d refer you to some good titles on the subject.
But for now, just ping Matt Bracken on Facebook, and tell him ( a former SEAL and current FReeper) that you intend to pursue your D.I.P. strategy. You won’t like his response. He’s travis McGee on FR.
As a serious reference and not a snarky reply, I encourage you to read this book
It, along with others, plus the direct advice of Matt Bracken, convinced me that for our family and our home, a Bug Out plan is the ONLY way.
We simply are not prepared or capable as empty nesters to defend in place.
If you think you can, more power to you. I just happen to think you are wrong, and I presume you live in suburban America, and I may presume incorrectly.
