So along the way over the past couple of months of creating preparations for tragedy and bugging out to a fallback point, I realized that I am unprepared if I am here, and there is a weather or other issue.  What am I going to do if something as simple as the power goes out and/or there is natural gas interruption in my geographic location.   More specifically, I am thinking winter time, 20 degrees out, the wind is blowing, and there is no heat and no way to cook.  Hmmm.  If the power goes out, there will be no water, no water, no coffee, shower, etc…

Well, some of my preparations to bug out are certainly useful if I have to bug in.  However, it was evident that I was certainly unprepared in the event of a natural event where I may have to stay here in my place in the event of an emergency.  So, I started doing some research on “bugging in,” and being prepared for it.
