I remember when hubs worked half way around the world for 15 years, I worried about that.
We pretty much concluded if something really serious happened he likely could never make
it back though he would try. I would have been on my own. He would have been with a group
of expats and they likely would be pretty resourceful but big limits too on what they could do.

There’s a couple of different things you can do to make the commute more prepper efficient.
1. Place caches I understand the concrete jungle not the most ideal place but I’m sure there is something you can do. Park or something similar.
2. Plan and plan thoroughly you definitely are doing a bug out level movement, which can be done. Plan how many miles you can cover in a day/night and be realistic about it. Also look into maybe a good bike or some sort of compact device to cover more ground.
3. As far as your cross country plan, you need to start thoroughly networking my longer term bug out plan also takes me cross country so I am currently networking to make that more feasible.
-loved the post really got me thinking so thank you, also thanks everyone for the responses already posted.

I’m curios as to why you say a firearm is obviously impossible?

Even without a CA CCW its a snap to get 32 states as non-resident….Take the class(just put a single gun on the ticket as your travel gun), pay about another $100 for the 3 states(AZ,FL,UT) and reciprocity gets you the rest of the states.

You can play with the map here to determine which states work best for you on reciprocity…https://www.usacarry.com/concealed_carry_permit_reciprocity_maps.html

Just sayin’….Of course I don’t know what states you travel to back east and you may not have it there, but just making sure you looked into it as its really simple.

And as others have stated here, a small get-home bag is easy but be prepared for extra security delays at the gates…it happens with those items but no big deal.

Better than storage would be Geo-Caches….Take a trip by car one day….plan out a return route from your most often traveled to area and do the drops accordingly along the way back.

I honestly think its overkill, but who knows…..It would be a fun trip at the very least….

Good luck.

Do you have family? Do you REALLY have to get back home of the SHTF? If not, consider sheltering in place. Grab whatever food and water you can in your local area, and HIDE. You wouldnt be safe for very long travelling on the highways and roads, especially by yourself. If you do have to get home, at least travel with a group. That dude that blogs about having survived the Yugoslav Civil War back in the 1990s always stressed moving and working in groups; on your own you are dead meat. I read this one SHTF book where the survivors took RVs and booked, travelling in somewhat comfort. They hid out for a few months out in the middle of no where and then came out once all the dying was done. Just a thought….

I always travel with a small kit.
It fits in red shaving kit.

Mylar Blanket
rain poncho
dust masks
lightsticks
hand cranked radio/flashlight
Whistle
$$$
Handle Ham radio (always put it back on to top off the charge when I get there)
ham repeater book
Small and I mean small first aid kit.
6 Millennial food bars

When I get to my vacation/business location I grab bottles of water

My 2 cents.

Indeed getting back home is the primary focus in any situation. Just thinking of a mini prep bag of some kind. I normally pack a medium sized suitcase s well as a second empty bag backed away in the case as secondary as I occasionally return with more crap than I left with. I am a runner, so I always have a good pair of running shoes packed at all times.
