OK, this may have already been covered, but I am curious. What is your daily driver? Is is your BOV? Is this a consideration or are most people already at their retreat or are you buggin in? I am looking for land for my retreat, but for now, realistically I have to prepare to be buggin in. I am however leaving me the option if it really gets bad to leave in a hurry. I have 4 drivers in my house, and 3 BOV's that I am preparing. All of them have BOB's in them, and I am finishing up the mechanical issues with the final one. I know that we always need more preps, but this is one that has impact now for everyday use as well. Here are mine: 94 Jeep Cherokee - Not EMP resistant, but compact light and will wheel where other 4WD's will not because of it's weight and size. My daughter is very comfortable in it and would drive it. 80 Bronco - Replace 90% of electronic parts, all that is vulnerable is 1 brain box an distributor, and I have spares sealed away for it. 6" lift 35" tires, lots of storage in back. I drive it. 77 Bronco - I am about 1/3 of the way through a frame off restoration on this. Everything is new from the ground up. My wife wanted a new car and we have always loved the old Broncos, so when we looked at a new car vs. restoring this, it was cheaper and we would have a better car when we were through. I am about a year away from this one, and my wife will be driving this one. The other part of this is if you think you might have to BO in one, how often do you go 4 wheelin or drive your routes. I need to plan better on my routes, and find more ways to my destination. If you do not have one, buy a Gazeteer for your area. They will have every county road listed, even if it is a dirt or gravel road.
