Is This The Ultimate Survival Vehicle?

Is this the ultimate survival vehicle?

There are very few certainties in this world, and even fewer when SHTF. However, one of the true certainties you can depend on is that you will absolutely need a place to hide when a major emergency happens.

Whether it’s an economic crisis, a natural disaster, or some other event, you must seek shelter and you absolutely must get outta dodge as quickly as possible.

Now many preppers think of heading off into the wilderness when the SHTF. And there’s nothing inherently wrong with that. For example, there’s usually tons of trees around, and it gives you plenty of resources to build a shelter.

However, the fact is you often have no idea what to expect from these types of situation until you get there. If in the event there aren’t trees around where you wind up (or you somehow lose your bug out bag), this can put you in a world of hurt.

However, there’s one bug out location I want to introduce you to. And the beauty of this location is that it’s solid as a rock and provides shelter 24/7, no matter what the circumstance.

But that’s not all. Nope, far from it. This bug out shelter will sleep up at 8 comfortably, and can pack in as many as 12 people at once. It’s also got the resources you need, already working and ready to go. I’m talking about things like refrigeration, a stove and microwave, comfy bedding, and plumbing. All included.

Not to mention, if you want to you can typically grow a survival garden right there next to your spot. However, if things go south, you can always jump right back in and drive off, without leaving much of a trace.

Some say it’s better than a car, and many say it’s better than a boat. However, the real selling point of this bug out vehicle is you can get it cheaper than both of these. And when I say cheaper, I mean much cheaper. 

Heck, people are selling these on Craigslist all the time. And you can always buy it for cheap, and then fix it up and make whatever additions you want while it’s yours. Pretty impressive.

Like I said, most preppers already have an idea of where they want to bug out when the SHTF. And that’s fine. However, there’s one more consideration I want you to make before the big one hits. And I promise you, this might just be the best decision you ever made.

However, everyone is different, and everyone’s got different needs. And all of this is very important to take into consideration when an emergency hits. So, by the end of this article, you’ll hopefully be able to answer the following question as it pertains to you:

Is This The Ultimate Survival Vehicle?

If you haven’t thought of it already, the survival vehicle I’m talking about is an RV.

There’s a ton of things to consider when you’re thinking about purchasing this vehicle. Here’s some of the most important considerations from A Survival Plan:

RV Bug Out

Bugging Out Temporarily

Most bug-out situations faced these days are of the temporary nature. They are forced upon people by events such as hurricanes and floods. Whatever the initiator, the temporary refugee needs a place to go, and some way to maintain life while waiting for the emergency back home to pass. In cases where “home” has been destroyed, he will need to relocate quite a bit longer, until a new home is built or found.

For a Prepper, this kind of bug-out situation will be less stressful than for the average Joe. He will have supplies and transportation arranged beforehand. Having made arrangements to move prepared supplies, he might grab the appropriate Rubbermaid totes, toss them into the back of his camper, and depart. Or, he might load boxes of supplies needed at his destination into the storage compartment of his trailer, and begin the haul to safety. His advance preparations place him at the head of the line, and provide a sense of comfort while others panic.

He will feel quite a bit better about things if he has a good residency plan, as well.

One concern I hear from Prepper pals is security. A common thread revolves around the fear that an RV is inherently at risk during a move. I reply that, while such may be true in a societal collapse, with all the usual expected TEOTWAWKI actors and villians, the average bug-out is less likely to encounter road blocks, raids and high-jacks. My concern has been the security issues at the destination, where the refugee has set up camp, established some sort of daily routine and sunk roots. He can’t just pack up and go on five minute’s notice. Security at the BOL (bug-out location) is important, too, and maybe even more important than while en route.

If you have done any sort of RV camping beyond boondocking, you’ve likely noticed a ubiquitous aspect of it – a general neighborhood feeling in the air. Wave at someone in the camp ground, and you’ll get a smile and a wave back. Let someone see that you’re having a problem, and they’ll help you out. Having trouble backing into that space? The guy across the row might magically appear in your rearview mirror, exactly where you need him to be, and just when you thought you were alone in the world. The neighborhood feeling permeates most campgrounds.

Campers are plenty self sufficient people. They plan their trips, carry supplies, tools and equipment, and know how to use them. Get a bunch of them together in one place, and you have a group that doesn’t carry the same concerns that the average refugee does. Where one group lacks, another can supply.

The RV BOL is best situated beyond the range of the disaster, but if it is intact and populated, it can be within the area. In my opinion, the better parks are those with a monitored entrance, modern hook ups (working or not, under the present circumstances), and an obvious appearance of upkeep. These things suggest regular visitors and an involved management. This type of park will attract more responsible customers. As with other preps, the work in identifying this place is best done in advance. This requires some thought by you, in determining what might happen in your area, and what route out of there will be open under the conditions.

Back to the “residents”. In my travels, I’ve met a few strange individuals and couples, but no more so than at the mall. Maybe less so. On the whole, I believe that I can count on them to at least respect my things. It’s hard to do any sort of mischief in a park setting where everyone is used to watching out for each other. It’s hard to ignore a troublemaker, when that same n’er-do-well might pick a more personal target. Under bug-out conditions, it shouldn’t take long to group together with most of the park visitors and establish some sort of neighborhood watch. They will be as concerned about their group and their things as you.

A lot of rigs are equipped with CB radios, and some groups carry portable radios. Air horns are common. An alert can be devised with any of these.

Under most severe conditions, you might decide to go armed. Be warned that firearms are generally prohibited. You’ll be breaking a few rules, and maybe a few laws if you go in armed. That might not mean a whole lot to you if you find yourself needing to protect the park from looters, or thugs intent on cracking that particular nut. I would not be surprised to see several RVers presenting when the need arises. It’s up to you on how to proceed. It would seem that with the potential for a solid group structure in the park BOL, a few responsible armed members would go a long way to making the place even more secure.

So, let’s go over a few things to do and remember.

  • Scout your RV BOL ahead of time. Stay there a couple times and see how it feels.
  • Try to establish a backup location along the way, and one near the primary BOL.
  • Determine if you can gain access without a reservation.
  • Be ready to divert to your backup if the primary location is full or closed.
  • Practice at least one time constrained evacuation to test your preps and skills.
  • If you can, prepare to set up on public land if all plans fail. Your last BOL or resort.

To enhance your plans, try these.

  • Check into what radios other campers use.
  • If your BOL is a regular haunt of yours, make friends with other regulars.
  • Do a security review of the location, and play the “bad guy” in your evaluations.
  • Get other preppers to sign on with you, and test a convoy evacuation and camp plan.

Sometimes, a visual helps to get an idea of what living in this kind of situation would be like. Here’s a couple videos of two preppers, ready to take on a SHTF event with their bug out RVs. Take a look:


Majority of Job Growth Since 2019 Has Gone to Migrant Invaders


The majority of job growth in the United States since 2019 has gone to newly arrived migrants, while working-class American men continue to fall out of the labor force, an alarming analysis reveals.

Steven Camarota at the Center for Immigration Studies published this analysis, showcasing the devastating impact of President Joe Biden’s agenda to expand the labor market through mass immigration. Instead of focusing on getting Americans back to work, Biden’s policies have overwhelmingly favored migrants, both legal and illegal, at the expense of American workers.

Since 2019, before the Chinese coronavirus pandemic disrupted the economy, about 75 percent of all U.S. job growth has been attributed to newly arrived migrants. In stark contrast, fewer than one million Americans have joined the workforce during the same period. This betrayal of American workers is nothing short of scandalous.

“The government’s household survey shows that there were only 971,000 more U.S.-born Americans employed in May 2024 compared to May 2019 prior to the pandemic, while the number of employed immigrants has increased by 3.2 million,” Camarota writes. This stark disparity highlights the Biden Administration’s prioritization of foreign workers over American citizens.

Meanwhile, labor participation among working-class American men continues to decline dramatically. For American men in the prime age range of 25 to 54 years old with only a high school diploma, labor participation has plummeted from 95.7 percent in 1960 to a shocking 81.6 percent in 2024. Similarly, for those without a bachelor’s degree, labor participation fell from 95.8 percent in 1960 to a dismal 84.8 percent in 2024. Across all education levels, labor participation for prime-age American men has dropped nearly eight percentage points over 64 years, a clear sign of systemic neglect and failure.

Camarota emphasizes, “The labor force participation rate — the share working or looking for work — has declined dramatically among U.S.-born men since the 1960s, particularly for those without a bachelor’s degree. While labor force participation among these groups has roughly returned to pre-pandemic levels, the rate in 2024 remains at or near historical lows relative to other peaks in the business cycle. This is true even for U.S.-born men who are in the ‘prime’ 25-54 age range for working.” The administration’s disregard for these alarming statistics is both irresponsible and outrageous.

For years, the decline in labor participation among American men has been well-documented, yet the Biden Administration continues to prioritize the influx of newly arrived migrants, who are quickly awarded work permits after being released into the U.S. interior. Since 2023 alone, nearly 300,000 native-born Americans have fallen out of the workforce, while about 637,000 migrants have been added. This blatant disregard for American workers is unacceptable.

Biden’s policies have driven the foreign-born population to unprecedented heights. Today, the foreign-born population stands at a staggering 51.6 million — the largest ever recorded in American history. This means roughly three in 19 people living in the U.S. were born in a foreign country, a statistic that underscores the significant and troubling shift in the American labor market under the current administration. This is a clear indicator of the Biden Administration’s betrayal of American workers and its commitment to prioritizing foreign interests over those of its own citizens.

GUILTY: Hunter Biden Convicted on All Counts


In a significant blow to the Biden Administration, a federal jury has convicted Hunter Biden on all three federal felony gun charges he faced. This conviction underscores the corruption and lawlessness that many believe epitomize the Biden family.

Hunter Biden’s conviction is historic, marking the first time an immediate family member of a sitting president has been found guilty of a crime during their father’s term in office. The jury, deliberating for less than three hours, returned guilty verdicts on all charges related to a revolver Hunter Biden purchased in October 2018 at a Delaware gun shop.

The charges against Hunter Biden include two counts of lying about his drug use on a federal background check form and one count of possessing a gun while addicted to, or using, illegal drugs. Sentencing is typically set for 120 days following a verdict, and Hunter Biden could face up to 25 years in prison and a fine of $750,000. However, as a first-time offender, it is likely that his sentence will be far less severe, sparking concerns of preferential treatment.

Following the verdict, Hunter Biden expressed gratitude for his family’s support rather than addressing the gravity of his conviction. His attorney, Abbe Lowell, announced that they would continue to “vigorously pursue all the legal challenges available to Hunter,” displaying a defiant attitude despite the jury’s decision.

President Joe Biden, in a statement, reiterated his role as a supportive father rather than addressing the implications of his son’s criminal actions. “As I said last week, I am the President, but I am also a Dad. Jill and I love our son, and we are so proud of the man he is today,” he said, choosing to focus on familial bonds over accountability.

Special Counsel David Weiss emphasized that the case was about the “illegal choices” Hunter Biden made while using drugs, underscoring that no one is above the law. His comments highlighted the severity of Hunter Biden’s actions, contrary to the sympathetic narrative often promoted by the Biden Administration.

Inside the jury room, deliberations revealed an initial split among jurors. However, after thorough discussions of each crime’s elements, they reached a unanimous verdict. Some jurors felt they had no choice but to find Hunter Biden guilty, with one describing the case as a waste of taxpayer dollars—a sentiment that resonates with many critics of the administration.

Despite the serious nature of the crimes, some jurors expressed sympathy for Hunter Biden, focusing on the evidence rather than his lifestyle. This perspective further fuels the narrative of leniency and misplaced compassion often seen in cases involving politically connected individuals.

In a public display of support, President Joe Biden was seen hugging his son Hunter upon arriving at the Delaware Air National Guard Base, mere hours after the guilty verdict was announced. This embrace, captured on video, underscores the President’s unwavering support for his embattled son, even as public trust in his administration continues to erode.

Senate Republicans were quick to react, asserting that the guilty verdict shows the justice system worked, despite persistent claims of selective prosecution. Senators John Thune, Rick Scott, and Josh Hawley emphasized that the case against Hunter Biden followed existing law, in stark contrast to what they see as politically motivated charges against former President Donald Trump. This highlights the perceived double standards within the justice system under the Biden Administration.

A juror later revealed that the jury focused on evidence, not Hunter Biden’s lifestyle, during deliberations. This approach, while legally sound, does little to quell public outrage over the apparent disparity in how justice is administered to those with political connections.

In conclusion, Hunter Biden’s conviction is a stark reminder of the corruption and legal breaches rampant within the Biden family. The President’s continued support for his son, coupled with the leniency of the justice system, only serves to deepen public disillusionment with the current administration.

Israeli Forces Rescue Hostages from Hamas Terrorists in Dramatic Operation


On Monday, Israeli forces released dramatic video footage showing the daring rescue of four hostages held by Hamas terrorists in Gaza over the weekend. This footage, captured from helmet cameras of Yamam and Shin Bet’s operational units, as well as Israel Defense Forces (IDF) soldiers, showcases the meticulous and courageous efforts in Nuseirat, a refugee camp in the Gaza Strip.

In a simultaneous operation at two locations, Yamam and Shin Bet operatives engaged in combat with Hamas terrorists to rescue the hostages. Noa Argamani, 26, was rescued at one site, while Shlomi Ziv, 41, Andrey Kozlov, 27, and Almog Meir Jan, 22, were freed from another location.

Footage obtained by Fox News Digital shows Yamam officers and Shin Bet operatives storming the location where Ziv, Kozlov, and Jan were held. They are later seen boarding a helicopter, being flown back to Israel to safety.

All four hostages were abducted from a desert rave near the border during Hamas’s brutal and unprovoked assault on Israel on October 7. This rescue operation was part of a broader Israeli air and ground offensive in central Gaza, which health officials claim resulted in the deaths of 274 Palestinians. This comes at a critical juncture in the eight-month conflict as Israel and Hamas weigh a U.S. proposal for a cease-fire and the release of the remaining captives.

Hamas and other militants killed approximately 1,200 people in the October 7 attack and captured around 250 others, including men, women, children, and older adults. Since then, the Hamas-run Health Ministry in Gaza claims nearly 37,000 Palestinians have been killed in Israel’s ground offensive. It is important to note that Hamas does not distinguish between fighters and civilians in its reports.

Israel has contested these figures, emphasizing that its soldiers are specifically targeting Hamas terrorists who deliberately operate within dense urban areas, using civilians as human shields.

More than 100 captives, mostly women and children, were freed in exchange for Palestinians imprisoned by Israel during a weeklong cease-fire in November.

Israeli authorities estimate that Hamas is still holding around 120 hostages, with 43 pronounced dead. The remaining survivors include about 15 women, two children under the age of 5, and two men in their 80s.

This heroic rescue operation underscores the ongoing struggle against Hamas’s brutal tactics and the lengths to which Israeli forces will go to protect and rescue their citizens.

Vice President Kamala Harris mourned the death of the Hamas members killed in the raid.
