In nearly any scenario I can think of it is bug in time.

If for some reason it was bug out time I'd be in the woods with my backpacking gear until things cool down.

Found a little island on a lake somewhere in the bay within 10miles of my house. Already have fishing poles/food somewhere there.

I have plans to bug out to several locations, depending on the circumstances: my sister's home up by Auburn, a hotel in San Diego, a ranch in North County, Mexico, and Arizona.

The BOB is needed for several reasons. First, I can think now at my leisure and pack things I may need (I pack modular, so different little parcels depending on the situation) instead of trying to remember where my passport or sunscreen is when I'm under time pressure. Second, a trip that might take a few hours today could take a couple of days under some scenarios, and a trip that might take 10 hours today could take a week; I'll want more supplies than a bottle of water and a debit card for McDonalds.

While one could certainly do some fishing, I don't think it wise to plan to live off the land. Even 150 years ago American pioneers were "moving on" because game was becoming scarce; any real pressure and game will seem to just disappear. Most good hunting even today is on land that is protected or controlled by law or by the owner, and I imagine private owners will be more serious, not less, about protecting their resource in many scenarios.

I watched one of the prepper episodes (discovery channel)

a family build a underground bomb shelter-under the house) I think they said it was stocked 4, 3 months. They also stash supplies along the route to a boat (several miles away)

I doubt the boat plan would work, but that bomb shelter made me drool.

I live out in the middle of no where so I am staying either in my house or in a tent if house burns down. We have two foot of snow and if you watch the tracks there is not a lot out there to eat so if you are coming from the city bring food.

My Bob is for disaster preperation. Natural disasters I hope not man made. I have chickens and sheep enough to slaughter over time for at least a year of living. the details are the tough part. I have 2K pounds of wheat berries but I have to be able to grind them without power. Keeping the Bob out of the house allows the contents to survive a fire in the house. Water is across the road a year around spring so the basics are taken care of shelter, water, food. I keep five hundred pounds of salt in blocks for food preservation. When I have a little extra money I add to the non electric items from Lehmans.

Lets hope this is all just a drill to learn from. I would bet the folks from the last couple of storms wish they were better prepared.

Let me give you a quick scenario. What would you do if at 1:15 am there is banging at your door and it the Sheriff Dept. He tells you, you got 10 minutes to get your things together and vacate the premise.
Let me tell you the adrenalin is pumping.

Bugging in.

There is no way it'll be possible to get out of L.A. via clogged roads and freeways.

I'm prepped to Shelter in Place until I can secure the safest way to escape from L.A. (that doesn't involve Kurt Russell and a surfboard).

OP is just trolling.. I am within a days hike of the Sierra Nevada's. Think some forget California is more then just San Fran or L.A.

I'm going to the BJs in San Bernadino, where the hot nurse works (I call the chicks who serve me beer "nurse").

I'll drink 5-6 pints of Jeremiah's Red and get sloshed. Then, I'll call a cab and go home.

FWIW...I found your spot. Ate your food already. But I did leave a note to say "Sorry."

Oh, and sold your fishing poles.

Well, I'll take the OP's question seriously. I discussed my family's plans a few years ago here.

In brief, if we had to ditch Livermore we'd go to stay with or near family in other locations in California. The state's big enough that any natural disaster isn't going to knock everything out at once.

My grandma's place in Concord is, amazingly, actually reasonably defensible and self-sufficient; if the Central Valley seems advisable we have family in Visalia/Tulare; if the foothills seem better we've got family up there as well. Most important is that all those folks either know of our plans or would welcome us if we showed up.

Afterthought: As for the OP's idea to hightail it to a Vegas hotel, that's not actually a bad idea, but 1) will you be able to get there, and 2) will you get there before everybody else heading there from Cali arrives and locks up all of the hotel rooms? Not a joke: this RAND study had some very interesting maps about California evacuation patterns and Vegas gets overwhelmed after even a minor event in the LA basin.

When you take precautions 30 years ago for the shtf day, God won't let me down.. Will be there in 50 months anyway, God willing and the creek don't rise.

I'm blessed to be moving to the hills soon, so I'd be buggin in initially. If the need to evacuate arises I have other family members living a relatively short distance away. I doubt folks will be poking around where I'm at, but on the off chance they do I'm confident I would be be more than capable of reducing such a threat. LV sounds dreadful, buddy. I'd rethink that a little if I were you.

I am already bugged out since we live way outside a major metropolitan area and have a Marine Base to help keep things organized locally, since it is simpler for them to help the town then to try to seal the hundreds of miles of non-fenced perimeter.

Our town just needs to work on keeping all you newly homeless from trying to move in to our newly gated community.
