    Hey everyone, I am not sure if this has been discussed yet. I travel a lot for work. That puts me away from home during the day. It also puts me near some of my peeps in pa. I carry a get home bag in my vehicle so I can ditch and go. But what if I need support for something else I missed on my way. I can’t use internet to ask. You kinda know me, would you help me on my way home? Would prior vetting be useful for such as this? What do you think?

    In a SHTF situation, if I don’t know you I won’t stop. Now if you’re broke down and it’s not that situation, and my oldest is with me, we’d help.

    If you can, make plans with people you trust, for this type of situation so y’all can have eachothers back, and they’ll know what die ton to look for you if you don’t show up.

    Options…. depend on how much money you have to play with…

    Option 1) motorcycle stored in an self storage unit mid way to your work. Having a backup vehicle that runs with a stash half way might be an alternative. I keep a bicycle in my van as a backup means of transportation.

    But what are you planning for that you would need to have help? EMP, war grid down?

    Prepare that you get home on your own without help, use the time that you depend on help better to get home on yourself.

      agreed. If things go way south there won’t be too many people you can count on. You would need to build a network first, with contingency plans, and include your network on them. Without a solid network of like minded people you’re on your own. I would say if everything goes to shit quick, you have about 2 or 3 days before people realize how bad it it.

    I travel almost daily for work, I have one of those jobs that you are at the customer site fixing things. So I can really be anywhere in the state at any point in time. I carry a multi day get home bag so I have something. Trying to bring my prep in this area to the next level
