Bugging In: How to Hunker Down and Survive in an Emergency Situation

Bugging In: How to Hunker Down and Survive in an Emergency Situation (Stay Alive) was a free book for the kindle when this post was written.

Are you prepared to survive in a shelter-in-place emergency situation?
Well, are you? If you are, pat yourself on the back. You're a step ahead of most people. The average citizen turns a blind eye to disaster preparedness and is largely unprepared to handle all but the most minor of emergency situations.

Do you really want to take a chance that could cost you and your family your lives?

The first thing most victims say is, "I never thought it would happen to me." Don't be caught unprepared when an emergency strikes that forces you to take refuge in your own home. The time to get ready for a crisis situation is now. Wait until the last minute and you'll be forced to pay top dollar for food, water and supplies, if you can find them at all. If not, you'll be forced to scavenge for scraps or beg for help, along with hundreds of thousands of others who couldn't be bothered to prepare.

The following topics are covered in this helpful and easy to read book:
  • What hunkering down is and why it's preferred over bugging out.
  • The disasters you should start prepping for.
  • Bugging out vs. bugging in.
  • The meaning of normalcy bias and how it can get you killed.

  • How to stay safe when you can't call the cops.
  • How stockpiling alcohol and tobacco might save your life.
