BI â€“ Bugging In â€“ To remain at your primary location in the event of a SHTF event.
BO â€“ Bugging Out â€“ To leave your primary location in the event of a SHTF event.
BOL â€“ Bug out Location (or land) â€“ Location to which you will BO to in the event of SHTF.
Â â€œTo BI or not to BI, that is the questionâ€

2. Its easy to prepare since that is where you are located.
3. Its easy to protect supplies since you are there.

3. Your wife and kids may eat the supplies as snacks.
4. Its hard to install wells and windmills and solar panels without notice.
