Freedom, in the real world we all have constraints and limitations. In your case you at least are aware and knowledgeable and won’t be like a deer caught in the headlights. As for me, we are living fulltime in what was the bug out location, and at this time we don’t have anywhere to go. None of our relatives or friends are better situated than we are. Additionally my wife’s health is such that she is unable to just start hoofing it cross country like a refugee, nor will she last long roughing it in the wild. We are where we are and will make the best of it here. It is what it is.
