    I'm not much of a backpacker or woodsman. At the age of 65 my wife and I are preparing and fortifying our home because taking off down the road is just out of the question for us. I'm interested in Bugging in more than bugging out. Barring a flood or a tornado wiping out the house we will make our stand where we are. I'd like to see some articles on fortifying the home and other useful things of that nature. ProGunPoster-020-GunOwnersLastPrayer.

    Welcome to the tree.
    Good info, good people.
    Most don't think of bugging in and fortifying. Might be interested once a place is built at my remote location to figure out ways to protect it using manufactured barriers and taking advantage of natural ones.

    I motorized a drawbridge on a California home about 25 years ago. The pool had a race lap around the house. (IE: moat and drawbridge.) Landscape rocks and trees can provide funneling without alerting the uninvited guests that they ARE being funneled. There are several threads here on subjects such as defensive vegetation, and armored bookcases that slide over windows.

    Welcome to Survival Monkey @Johnctee. Where would you like to start on your bug in plan. We have some great discussions for Discouraging and fortifying your home. What about heating, is that a need? If you are bugging in you will need gardens plus defensive planting is a plus. Plus the green patch for gardening. Just give a shout and the members here will help. We have great members who are willing to share knowledge and ideas.
