Discussion On Wild Bunch Dispatch Issue #80 Starts HERE At 6:30pm Mountain Time!

July 30, 2022

The Q&A portion of the Wild Bunch Dispatch will be held on this page from 6:30pm to 8:00pm (Mountain Time) today.  Any questions you might have on the 80th issue (The Bug Out Scenario – What Do You Need To Get Out of Dodge?) please post here and I will try to answer them to the best of my ability.  Some ground rules:

1)  Please stick to the subject matter of the newsletter.

2)  This is not a debate forum.  If you have some concerns I’m happy to address them, but I can’t get into a long circular debate while other people have questions.

3)  If I do not respond to your question immediately, don’t freak out.  I’ll get to it, don’t worry.

4)  Try to keep to one or two questions each time you write a post.  Please refrain from essay-long multi-question posts.  It is much appreciated. 

I will begin discussion at exactly 6:30pm Mountain time.  Looking forward to your questions and thoughts on the Wild Bunch Issue #80.  If you missed out on this discussion you can still subscribe for the next issue and participate.  For more information on how to subscribe, visit the link HERE.

    The water situation seems like it would be stressful to deal with during a bugout. Do you have any other tips that would help besides what you mentioned in the newsletter?

      Yes, the average person is going to need around a gallon of water per day, maybe more if you are sweating a lot. If you get dehydrated everything goes downhill fast. I was once on a hunt where our water location had dried up completely; had been there for years and it was just gone that year. We had to cut the hunt short because there were no other good water sources nearby. The only things you can really do are plan your route to go past multiple water sources, or, do what some hunters do, which is take extra water storage out to a waypoint and bury it so no one finds it. Then it will be there if you need it later. Transporting water is probably the biggest concern of any military on the planet, because each person can only carry so much on them. Always have a water filter in your kit. It might save your life one day.

        Also more if your food needs rehydrating.

    Do you think regular people would be hostile if you’re trying to move through an area to get to your bugout spot? Would they think you’re an intruder?

      It’s possible depending on how bad the national situation is. Some neighborhoods and towns will organized to protect themselves from looting and other threats. This is why it’s probably preferable to travel at night if you can. Night vision is a huge advantage in this regard. It’s not just about combat at night, it’s about navigating at night. I think most people would only be curious about who you are and where you’re going. They might stop you to talk and then send you on your way. That said, other people might just want to take your gear and leave you to die. This is why bugging out is a LAST RESORT, not Plan A.

    How would you deal with traveling on foot with children in a bug out situation? My family just returned from a day hike and we went 5 miles in almost two hours. My kids range from 5-13 yrs old and we had an assortment of hurdles (water, bugs, blisters, bickering) to resolve.
    Leaving in a vehicle seems straightforward but on foot will be a challenge. Very much enjoy your work and I’ll hang up and listen. Cheers!

      It depends on your path. If you can used the roads obviously a vehicle is the way to go. Just be sure you have enough gasoline stored to make the trip. If the main roads are hostile or gas is gone, then you’ll only have foot travel, horseback or bicycles. They make electric bicycles that are very quiet and fast, but they tend to be expensive (around $4000 each). But, you could probably pull a cart behind you with a couple small kids using an electric bike. I think the best thing you could do is KEEP taking your family on those hikes and get them used to the struggle now while things are still somewhat stable.

    Bugging out will certainly be a lights on change of life. Accepting the situation with as much organization and preparation may be the difference between your safety or chaos .

      Yes, you will never be able to control every circumstance. Nature could throw you a curve ball and send a wildfire or a tornado your way. You never know, so it’s good to have some kind of plan. Very few people can afford an underground bunker, so your best bet is to have a solid bugout plan just in case.

    This one’s for issue 79. A good example of the fake Christians you mentioned would be the Romans 13ers because they believe any defiance or resistance to the state no matter how justified is against the will of God.

      I often wonder if Romans 13 was slipped into the bible by the Vatican or by the Council of Nicaea to keep the peasants under control – It demands fealty to authorities ordained by God; does anyone really believe that the current “authorities” are chosen by God today? I think not. Another problem is certain Christians who like to brag about doing good works and helping people, but when they are faced with legitimate people in need they run for the hills. If it means they have to sacrifice anything, their whole song and dance changes. Most Christians aren’t like this, but there are more than you might expect that value possessions over people.

      • Greg B. July 30, 2022 at 8:14 pm

        What’s especially telling is the number of examples in the Bible of people resisting tyrannical rulers and governments, with God’s blessing no doubt. Plus the Bible states that God will indeed judge tryannical rulers.

        Context is key. The purpose of Paul here was to council the church at Rome to change focus from politics to spiritual. The church must be focused on salvation, looking high, and not on politics, looking low. Individuals may do as they please, but focus on salvation is much more important than politics.
