    Using the barrel will protect whatever is inside from bears. So that's certainly a plus. That would protect your radio anyway.

    Although we moved here to enjoy the beauty and solitude, we live where most would consider a BOL.

    IMO and for a few reasons, kyratshooter's "In a real SHTF situation you probably aren't going anywhere by foot or by vehicle."

    If I have to face a SHTF situation, I'm buggin in and I will leave my house only for tending to my garden, and for hunting and fishing in the nearby forest, along with my neigbours. We are country people, after all.

    We will also be bugging in. We have shelter, food, water and a wood stove for winter heat.

    To be fair, I would also bug out if I lived at a bigger city, away from natural resources. But here I just need to walk 30 minutes and I'm into the woods looking at a massive river. When my dad's grandparents came from Germany, they survived for the first few months just hunting, fishing and gathering and trading. My mom's grandparents came from a diferent part of Germany, and they mostly selled wood and charcoal for the fisrt months. Then the first crops came, the families met at a local bar, a daugther and a son likekd each other and the rest is history. I have no reason to bug out. I'm at work rigth now and this is my window, I can see the edge of the forest rigth there besides the parking lot.anexar ja.jpg

    For long term survival, it would take a huge BOB.

    Here is our place:

    Same as you, we have no need to bug out. Here, the forest surrounds us. Our neighbors have 4 legs or slither on the ground.
    We are over 20 miles from the nearest town with under 9K population.
    To be honest, it wasn't chosen as a BOL as we both love its peacefulness and beauty.
