    Yep! Horriblewood has done run off the likes of Ricky Schroeder (he's still living as far as I know), John Russell, John Wayne and others who were/are staunch believers in the 2nd amendment. Oh, did ya know Tom Brokaw is a big supporter of the 2nd amendment? He has a big farm in, I believe it's Montana, and does quite a bit of hunting. I was really surprised to learn that.

    I'm related to him somehow way back. The Winters branch I'm in had 3 die in route to help Fannin at Goliad, and a father and four sons at San Jacinto in the Texas revolution. I guess the family is good at winning wars.

    I plan on staying put if SHTF, at home, where I have plenty of provisions, water, animals, firearms, and fighting off the Zombies with no plans who try to impede on my family. I have no BOL other than home, which is 50 miles from any big city, and 10 miles from any small town. I think there will be alot of transients looking for handouts, and trying to excersise thier squatting rights on good natured country folks like me, which I intend to prevent.

    I would rather die defending my property, and family, than to be aimlessly traveling from place to place hoping for the best, expecting the worst. Without a proper BOL, most city people affected will be doing this.

    Right, but stay focused. You could possibly be forced to escape, "temporarily". There is no need to die over a piece of property when you can live to fight another day. I have no intentions of leaving my place either. We are also roughly 50 miles from the newest sizable town ( not a city) and about 15 miles from the nearest small town. The nearest big city to us is over 100 miles. I still prep incase I do need to leave temporarily. Mostly, my on the road preps are for getting home though, rather than leaving home base.

    I do have a "get home" bag I keep in my truck, that has minimal supplies, and provisions mainly for an extended walk home, but I couldn't rely on that for more than a few days.

    My BOL is occupied by a couple retired family members who watch over the property. This has allowed my wife and I to pre-position most of our prep at the BOL. This leaves the challenge of reaching the BOL when it is time to Bug Out. Does anyone have ideas on pre-positioning their prep?

    I second the suggestion of check lists. I used them extensively in the military for everything from loading WRSK kits on pallets to packing personal gear for missions.

    I have storage totes, as mentioned before, in my garage... Balloon goes up and 8 medium totes can be tossed in the back of my pick up along with bottled water and food... Clothes, extra ammo, some tools, camping equipment can all be loaded in under 5 min...
    leave the gun... take the cannoli...

    I don't have lists, or loaded totes, or a bug our location, but I do have a fallback location.
