Personally I have a few in place including but not limited to small skirmishes, disguise techniques, and evasive decoy/false lead techniques.

the forest is about 10 miles south of me and i plan on headen there with my family. ive been up there a bunch of times and know its stocked full of wildlife (right now anyway) and i know the path of the river that flows through there.
ive also been learning trap tecniques such as shelter building, pit fall traps, snare traps, rock drop/log drop traps, and alotta other stuff to get us by through forest living.
however, if california hits "the big one" the san andreas may cut my path to the forest, on that note i guess ill either find a way around/through or head to the tejone forestry. i live in the desert which when shtf means very little water, but there are quite a few critters to catch and eat!

The area I am headed to is definitely not nearly as close as you are to the forest. I am near irvine lake, and I am sure it would be fished dry. my other more secure area is unfortunately 2.5 hours away. If it got really bad I could make my way to the beach, like Newport, and grab an "Unused" boat. Not that I am a fan of stealing things, but I must protect my family.

You guys all seem to live on the west coast, So I understand your Earthquake concerns. I on the other hand am from the East coast, so I dont think I am going to have to worry about cracks in the earth. My technique is called...get in my 4x4 yukon and hammer down!!! I took the liberty of taking off the governor, so if anyone gets in my way....we will just say "splat" (or tonights dinner depending how desperate lol)

I do, I have a couple locations to go to, depending on the situation. I would really like to stay home if possible, I am prepared to fortify the house and have plenty of Guns and ammo. Having a 2 yr old, and 5 yr old will be difficult travelling with. If necessary I have a nice big wooded area to go, and I live at the base of a mountain so I could get up there and be able to see all the way to Nyc. I also have a country house, if given some warning I would head there

My Grandfather always tells me, "locks are just there to keep honest people honest."
and as a former thief, i could vouch for that. tbh, even today, there isnt anything i cant break into (well besides bank valts n Fort Knox etc lol). although it was along time ago, i retain my knowledge.

@ Survivalist

be careful of false road blocks.
also look in thrift stores for a hefty double stroller, that maybe able to go off road and keep it in your truck. (i have a 5yr old a 3yr and a 6month old lol)
aslo, keep a few 5 gallon gas cans full, and trade'em out every couple of months or so, i hear yukons dont get great MPG LOL.

I hear ya, but it will be a bitch, an time consuming and loud. i wont go into details about my security system, but if someone did get in, then they have to deal with the dog and after he chews them up they can say hello to 1911.

Thanks for the warning bout the road blocks...I gotta tell ya..when it's time to go, I'ma gonna get goin!! No roadblock is gonna stop me, cause I aint stoppin. Lol. I look at it this way..I am gonna be at work when shtf and will have to drive thru Newark (its the west coast version of compton) Thats why I always carry my H&K .45 with me in my truck. Once I get home, I already have boards cut to size with turret cutouts. Boards go up, and the 12ga with buckshot comes out. Thats the ultimate home defense, no one will make it through any opening. I agree 100% about locks not being too secure, and wished I had a dog, but I'm thinkin I got it covered. If I do have to bug out...I have about 40gal of fuel at the house ready to go. And yes your right...Yukons dont get great mpg's. Lol

I like the idea of the cut outs! I am wondering if I can buy sheets of kevlar to line them with.
I do need a 4x4 something fierce.

word of advice:
put your security system on a back-up generator as well. no power=no system.
the dog can be taken care of by a simple piece of meat and/or bullet, the 1911 on the other hand will be a bitch, but if theres a roaming gang of 5+ people trying to breach your house, thats where it'll get a lil'tricky for ya.

mind you, im not trying to argue, im trying to give prespective to your plan, so that your better prepared for what may happen.

words of advice for you:
if you do use your Yukon as a battering ram, and unless the situation calls otherwise, turn your SUV around and ram it with the back end if you can because:
1. you dont want to F-up your radiator/engine.
2. if people happen to be shooting, it will give you extra cover, as well as saving your engine/radiator from bullets.

i do like your "cut out" plan, but as you/others can probably tell im not a big fan of buggin in (home), i just dont believe there are to many defendable options.
but as always, i will try my best to provide info on the subject.

Ok here's the Deal, we installed bars on the windows and doors, all windows have foot pedals in case of fire. Like you said if someone really wants to get in they can. I'am not going to make it easy for them. Oh and Krime you suck, lol . Now you got me all #$%^ up !!! lol thanks man for keeping me thinking !!!

Thanks for that info krime I would hope I dont have to use my truck as a battwring ram, but if forced I would do exactly that. Also because of airbags. Lol. That is also a technique if your ever beibg followed...lock up your brakes or stop and throw it in reverse, you will pop thier airbags and disable thier vehicle. Lol.
just out of curiosity why are you againsr holdibg down in a home? I would like to hear your thoughts on that?

Thanks

theres plenty of reasons really, ill list a few here, mind you, i mean unless you have a home away from people or a bunker or such:
homes are hard to defend against roaming gangs, you can stock a full arsenal, but at the hight of it all, you and any other capable can only shoot 2 guns at a time (unless you have some rediculiously awesome gun rig to shoot more at once lol).
look at any police raid and you'll see what im talking about.
unless you've dug some kind of excape tunnel under your house (which is an awesome thought for HOME OWNERS, lol) you'll more than likely be breached, shot as well as any others that reside in your household. when this happens, everything you stocked up (food/guns/ammo) now belong to the enemy.
all in all, its just very hard to defend a home when roaming gangs come through, and be sure, they will come through.

and tbh, lests say a gang tryies everything they can to get in with no avail, they may just get pissed and set the whole freaken house on fire, then wait as you try to escape and shoot you all.
which brings me to another bit of advice for you buggen inners:
have a large fire extiguisher in every room of the house, including access to the attic space with one too, just incase they do start your home on fire, this may buy you some time to figure out a plan, lol, like Young Guns 2 at the end LOL!
