To make things a little clearer:
“Get into the woods or a place of concealment. I would then settle in and see what happens.”
I do not plan to stay there all day or night. The worst thing I can do to myself is to jump up and start hauling ass. I want to see where people are going. I plan to go in the opposite direction and then turn back to where I need to start the trip home. I do not want anyone around me when I do this. Over many years of doing stuff I have trained myself to not get in a hurry. I can sit all day or night if I must.
Jumping up in the middle of a Sh*t Storm will get you hurt!
