But most serious preppers prep their home environment as their Plan A. Obviously, you can store many more preps, secure and fortify your home, and become a part of a supportive community in your home neighborhood.
On the other hand, bugging out with little more than what's in a bag or in a vehicle for an uncertain and dangerous journey at a time when chaos may be the rule ... well, that's certainly not what most folks would choose to do with their loved ones if they have any choice at all.
My thoughts exactly. There is no way I would want to relocate my guns, ammo, food, water, etc. if there is chaos all around. My neighbors, family, and friends are better off serving together to rid the area of any issues.
As for a hurricaine; I am originally from Hilton Head Island. I am not worried aboud a storm. Hunker down and rebuild.
