Wow, 86% stay-putters at this point, 11% bug-outers.

Getting good input on this from all over. I will run this survey thru the end of the month and then plan to post follow-up identical surveys in the future--perhaps every two months or quarterly to identify any possible trends.

Thank you for your help in getting this survey established.

Why does that surprise you?

Because of all the chatter on S/P lists about BOBs, getting to your BOL, and fortifying your bunker once you're there.

Objectively staying put makes sense unless you live in a large city or live in an apartment which wouldn't allow you to customize your home to your specific needs.

Even though I would stay put, if something were to happen while I'm at work, I have a 50 mile drive through a heavily used main artery through Milwaukee - timing to me would be everything. I can leave work at 2;30, 2:45 is perfect (miss shift changes at two large employers), anything past 3:00 literally adds 15 minutes to my 45 minute drive. A GHB and some planning makes sense.

Just the other day I had a 1.5 hour wait and didn't move when some car on the side of the road burned out.

I would only leave my home if I felt I had no choice.

Happy Father's Day! (Just learned today I'm going to become a grandfather again, God willing!)

Do you actually believe most, if any of them? Just like the Charborne Ranger Division that often post here on GT (the "if I had been there" group), a lot of fantasy talk gets thrown around in the S&P community.

The kids and I did a ten mile hike last week, up and down some river bluffs in the timber with a 30lb pack, and i was pretty tuckered out after that 4 hours. I'm staying put if at all possible. Living out of my pack for more than 2 days and 35 or 40 of travel miles would SUCK!

Good point. On reflection, no, I don't. Thanks for the reminder on the "fantasy factor."

My post above was not intended to insult anyone just for the record, just my thoughts and nothing more.
