Welcome to Bug-Out Survival

Welcome to my newest website and blog: Bug-Out Survival.

Over the past six months, I have been working on the manuscript for: Bug Out: The Complete Plan for Escaping a Catastrophic Disaster Before It's Too Late. The initial phase of the writing of this 320-page book is nearing completion and editors at Ulysses Press are now working on it and plan to publish the book in May, 2010.

As I began compiling and condensing the huge amounts of information I had available on the subject of choosing a wilderness bug-out location and planning an escape, whether in an emergency or just to "check out," it became evident that it could not all fit into one book. Books have to be succinct and tightly focused to fit within the conventional package of a 6 x 9 trade paperback, and the information that will end up in the final product will hopefully be a useful stand-alone resource for lots of readers. But in writing it, I realized I wanted to elaborate on many points, go into more detail about my choices of gear, and include photographs taken in great bug-out locations as well as my own first-person narratives of my experiences in them. Hence the need for this site - a place where I can do all that and more.

My goal is for Bug-Out Survival to become a valuable resource on the subject of survival in a "bug-out" situation, where you may be forced to leave the comforts and familiarity of home behind and head-out to the boonies with just what you can carry. I hope the information provided here will give you inspiration to learn the skills and practice the ways of wilderness survival, bushcraft and hunting and gathering, and give you the confidence to know you can succeed.


  1. Today is May 5th 2010

  2. Drop,

    Slight delay with the printing. It will still be available this month. See more in the Bug Out Release Update under "Recent Posts".

  3. Scott,
    I really have found a lot of value in your site and am planning to do a review of your book on my site at eventually your site as well. I am just getting started but I am shooting for a place that people can find valuable resources on the topic of survival and preparedness and I think you have a great take on things. So thanks for that.

  4. Robert,
    Thanks. Good luck with your new site, it looks good.

  5. thanks...for all the info....My husband is a very young 80 yr old and I also young at 64. We will survive this insanity and rely upon the great research preppers such as yourself help us with. God bless you!!

  6. Great work! I have been prepping and trying to educate others on prepping for the last 3 years in North Carolina. I am always amazed that a lot of people will have some survival gear, but everyone seems to forget that survival is not and can not succeed as a solitary endeavor. A prepared survival community is as important as any of your tactical gear or skills. Just a thought.

  7. Hi Scott, about to start book 1 of The Pulse series on recommendation from fellow Hui goer this year 2017... looking fwd to a good read, Cheers Stew from Luckyfish

    1. Hi Stew, I hope you enjoy the book. I heard all about your awesome boat and Atlantic voyage! Wish I could have made it to the Hui. Maybe next year.
