Ww3 Survival: Bugging in And/or Bugging Out

Updated on January 6, 2020

WW3 remains a hot topic lately. Every time the United States unleashes another missile, tensions increase and this is the hottest trend on Twitter. This might seem like a media stunt to some, but most people are starting to realize that the threat of a new world war is very real. A few miscalculations during disagreements and military moves could begin a downward spiral that could devastate the world for years to come, and most people know it.

As more and more people begin to realize that the threat of a third world war is very real, they also begin to prepare. If you are just now beginning to think of preparations that need to be mind, it’s important to remember that it’s never too late. It’s a good thing that you’re starting now, so ignore the people that already have twenty years of food stockpiled. It’s better late than never. One of the first things that you will come across are people that are bugging in or bugging out.

What is bugging in?

Bugging in means that you, and your family, will stay put for WW3. You should have food, water and other things stockpiled in your home to provide you with ample supplies to get you through the crisis. Most people prepare for bugging in by making sure that they have the essentials that they will need at their home, or their bug in location of choice. They may also have a cabin in the woods or a friend’s house that they will go to, and they will bug in there.

Preparing to bug in often requires that households stockpile things like food, water, and even ammunition. When preparing to bug in, it is important that every member of the household, including pets, have everything that they need inside of the house. You should also have everything that you need to protect your home, such as self defense and items that can be used to barricade the house to prevent break ins, or at least make them more difficult for robbers.

What is bugging out?

Bugging out is exactly what it sounds like: you leave and retreat to a safe location. This may be life on the road, a predetermined camping location or other spot that is essentially safe because it is away from civilization, and the dangers that now come with it. Most people think of bugging out in the event that nuclear war becomes a threat or there is a ww3 because the cities may be dangerous.

There are several scenarios that could lead to cities becoming dangerous. Most larger cities in the United States are considered targets, especially New York City and Los Angeles. Other cities that have military bases, larger airports and naval bases are also instantly considered unsafe in times of war. Even if there is not a threat from another country, the cities may become unsafe due to a lack of government or food. People that have no access to food will do whatever they can to provide for their family during WW3, and that includes attacking you and stealing your food. If things get chaotic, it’s time to get out. This can happen at a moment's notice, so it's important to be prepared in advance for this scenario.

Prepare for Both

When preparing for a national disaster, WW3 or any other crisis, such as the collapse of the government, it is important to prepare for both bugging in and bugging out. Houses provide instant shelter; they are already roomy enough for your entire family and they already will be full of necessary supplies. On the other hand, there may be an event, or several events, that unfold that will make your home unsafe. This is why you also need to have a bug out bag prepared and ready to go. You bug in unless it is unsafe, and then you bug out. If you live somewhere that you know will become unsafe, be better prepared to bug out.

Now that you know a little bit about World War 3 preparation for beginners, educate yourself as much as possible to make sure that you are as prepared as you can be for the next world war.
