What would make one bug out and of so to where?
First off, sorry it's taken me so long to get back to this. I've been... "distracted."
I do see that in many situations bugging "in" would be better than bugging out. However, if it's something that's going to last longer than one day, I need to bug out. I am single, I live in two rooms that I rent (one of which is a bathroom), and I have one friend here within 100 miles. I'm in a town that I don't know particularly well, in an area that I know even worse. Most of my "stuff" is at my parents' house, 250 miles from here. My purpose for keeping a bug out bag is to give me and one other person the materials necessary to get us somewhere to stay longer term (probably her dad's farm).
And the bag is just as much a bug in bag as bug out... it's just packed in a way that can be used for either one.
