16 IMPORTANT BUG OUT VEHICLE CRITERIA:
2. PRACTICALITY / VERSATILITY
We covered this a little in the previous section, but this variable is definitely worth mentioning on its own and discussing further. Ideally you want to choose a vehicle that you can get the very most out of. You don’t want a designated BOV that just sits unused in your garage or driveway and never gets driven. That’s not good for vehicles for numerous reasons. If for some reason you opt for the designated BOV in addition to your daily driver(s), then consider a vehicle that you can get a little more out of than just waiting around for S to HTF. For example, how about a vehicle that is ideal for bugging out but is also terrific for various outdoor adventures like camping, bushcrafting, off-roading, overloading, and other outdoor outdoor recreation activities? Or maybe your designated BOV can serve you in a work capacity like moving or hauling things? The possibilities are endless, but the main point here is think about other purposes your BOV can serve you while you aren’t actually bugging out! Think of your BOV like a dog. If that dog never gets attention or exercise, that dog is going to be pretty miserable being neglected like that. Your BOV needs love too! It needs care, attention, and “exercise” (taken out and used from time to time) at least every few months to keep the fuel running through it and the parts moving!
