From the back cover:

A cataclysmic disaster strikes your area. How will you evacuate your family to safety? Do you have a vehicle you can count on? Can it double as a mobile retreat, or do you have a shelter prepared in advance? What’s your plan for reaching the shelter?

Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters gives you the vital answers and options for becoming a survivor instead of a refugee:


  • Prepping fast-escape vehicles
  • Using specially equipped vehicles for unique situations
  • Planning for backup vehicles if your main escape option fails
  • Utilizing bikes, canoes, kayaks, rowboats and other human-powered means of escape


  • Preparing temporary shelters
  • Locating and stocking long-term shelters
  • Using an RV, motor home, camper trailer or converted utility vehicle
  • Living aboard boats, from motorboats to houseboats to blue-water sailboats

Explaining the advantages and drawbacks of each vehicle and shelter option, this survival handbook zeroes in on the key considerations and essential equipment for planning all your bug-out needs.
