Urban Survival – Gangs Thugs and Looters

I'd like to think that we live in a "civilized" society.

I'd like to think that if we ever experienced a true "lights

out", balloon-goes-up collapse that you and I could rely on

our fellow citizens to all pitch in and help everyone get

past the hard times.

I know better.

If you want a good look at what to expect after

infrastructure is down for more than 2 weeks, take a journey

back to just 1998 in the Indonesian riots...

With the country in complete melt-down over food shortages

and mass unemployment, you couldn't get more than a couple

of blocks without being stopped by thugs with knives and

clubs looking to take your stuff while the police and

military scrambled to keep order.

Here in the U.S. where so many citizens own a gun, you can

expect a potential "Old West" style mentality where every

trigger-happy neighbor will guard their belongings to the

death as the world crumbles around them.

Trust me.. I've seen it first hand in 3rd world countries

while in the military, what happens when there's a lack of

food and water... no infrastructure... and no consequences

for your actions.

When you notice the true signs of collapse, that's your

signal to get out of Dodge... fast!

Unfortunately, most people are ill-prepared to bug-out at a

moment's notice - especially during a period of civil unrest

where looters, thugs and anarchists could target you and

your family.

Here are 3 "bug-out tactics" for when things get bad -

REALLY bad - and you perceive a threat in your area:

 1. Pre-plan a secondary "safe house" that's farther than

 25 and less than 75 miles away from your home. That's

 just far enough to typically escape your danger area,

 but close enough you could make it there in 3 days even

 if you're on foot. Consider family and friends in this


 2. Stay off the main roads. Use railroad tracks, bike

 paths, hiking trails, and powerline paths. Depending on

 whether you have a convenient river near you, you could

 even bug out using a canoe or kayak.

 3. Pack your bug out bag as lightly as possible. Most

 people try to pack in everything they can. After just 5

 miles, you'll see the error in your ways. My advanced

 bug-out bag system shows you how to achieve an

 ultralight evac kit that's based on real emergency and

 combat experience.

 Bug-out bag plans =>

While your home may often be the safest place to be after a

disaster, you can't be blind to the threats that may arise.

Humans in desperation are the most dangerous animals on the


Have your bug-out plan ready for action and consider these

strategies now for your full protection.

Yours in survival,
