Episode-148- Bug Out Planning and Documentation

Today’s show covers the formalized planning and documentation process I have personally developed to handle any situation where bugging out is required.  This plan is designed to keep decision making logical and get family members in touch with each other and to rally points on the way to your Bug Out Location should the ability to rally at home firt be compromised.

Tune in today to hear…

  • Planning your initiaion sequence and requirements
  • Setting up and utilizing means of communicaiton during a bug out
  • Know where to go – 3 locations – 3 routes and for both long distance and short distance
  • Procedures for arrival and waiting and departing rally points
  • The need for full documentation including maps, plans and contact data
  • Why your data must be “uniform”
  • Basic op sec for your data, with out paranoia
  • Multiple routes for all BOLs and Rally Points
  • Grab and Get lists beyond your basic kit (short and long)
  • Chane of Command – Group Hierarchy for Civilians
  • Planning for Pet Evacuations and the Doggy Bug Out Bag

  1. This may be no-brainer stuff to a lot of your listeners, but this was awesome content for me today. Simple. Actionable. Great show, Jack.

  2. Another great show, Jack!

    Just a note:
    EmergencyEssentials has a lot of this type of info as well, and they have some forms that can be printed out and filled in to suit.
    (go to EmergencyEssentials and look towards the bottom on the left for: “Insight Articles” for the pre-printed forms)

    Your description of routes, rally points, and other information will help so many people.
    Thanks again for sharing.

  3. Great show with a lot of helpful information. Just a quick note on the prepaid phones. Make sure that they do not have expiration dates on the minutes. I have an altell prepaid phone and it works great, but, the minutes only last for 60 to 90 days before they expire.

    Thanks again for all you do.

  4. ON THAT BUG OUT PLANNING, I’VE HAD TO MAKE SOME HARD DECISIONS AS TO WHICH GUNS TO TAKE AND WHICH ONES TO LEAVE BEHIND. AFTER ALL, AMMO IS THE IMPORTANT THING. I CHOOSE TO TAKE ONE EACH HANDGUN AND/OR RIFLE FOR EACH CALIBER FOR WHICH I HAVE A LARGE AMOUNT OF AMMO. 22LR AMMO IS IMPORTANT BECAUSE OF THE LARGE AMOUNT YOU CAN TRANSPORT AS IT IS NOT HEAVY. THEN YOU NEED ONE OR TWO MAJOR CALIBERS THAT CAN BE USED FOR HUNTING OR DEFENCE. IF YOU HAVE A CALIBER OF AMMO THAT YOU AREN’T TAKING A GUN FOR, TAKE THE AMMO FOR BARTERING PURPOSES.
    AS FOR WHICH GUNS/AMMO TO BUY, LOOK TO THE MILITARY SURPLUS MARKET IN SHOTGUN NEWS. I’VE ALWAYS DONE BUSINESS WITH AIM SURPLUS AT http://WWW.AIMSURPLUS.COM IN OHIO. THEY ARE HONEST AND USUALLY HAVE THE BEST PRICES AROUND.
