Just to show you how good I am at getting stuck, I’ve been stuck in mud puddles, lakes, and streams. I’ve been snick in the middle of plowed fields and the middle of county roads. I’ve been stuck in clay-soil gumbo, sandy-soil uplands, and most other kinds of soil in between.
Being able to retain mobility when disaster hits is even more important than hoarding supplies. You can use your car or truck to move around when things are in good shape.

In a previous article, I wrote about acquiring a proper getaway vehicle and how to do it without losing money. Today, we are going to discuss roadside emergencies and how to keep that vehicle running.
Let’s face it, not everyone has a retreat. Some of us, because of our jobs, lack of money, or peculiar professions, cannot move now to our favorite retreat. This retreat may be a piece of land we have purchased in anticipation of moving, or it may be an area that, in a general emergency, would be unoccupied. But how will we get there?
A get home bag will help you reach the safety of your home if a disaster happens, and you are in an unfamiliar location. A disaster can hit anytime and anywhere, and you should be prepared to reach your home and your loved ones.
