Kevin Reeve of On point Tactical will be giving us a terrific chance to interact with a true urban escape and evasion instructor. Kevin has graciously agreed to come to our meetup and give to us for free some of what he teaches to professionals and organizations. He also teaches wilderness survival and mantracking skil...ls among others. This is a very rare chance to explore details and interact with a legendary modern figure in the self sufficient movement at no cost to you. He is a smart man and very well respected in his field. He has a lot of real life experience from which to draw. This is a link to his bio/resume:

Tucking in vs. Bugging out There has been a lot of member interest in dealing with the topic of staying put versus moving out. While we have touched on these issues in different meetings, there are so many variables to take into account that it is virtually impossible to effectively cover the topic in any realistic and cohesive way. So here is what we WILL cover: 1. Advantages and disadvantages of staying put versus leaving your home ( apt or house). 2. The roles of practical applied stealth , subterfuge , camouflage and defense in various scenarios. 3. Alternative route planning and means of transport. 4. If you must leave, where to go ( and NOT TO GO ). 5. Basic urban escape and evasion techniques. 6. Study the tactics used by refugees and resistance fighters of the past. 7. Setting "trigger points" for your friends and family to enact pre made plans without electronic communications. One thing that the organizers have agreed on with regard to this particular meetup : We STRONGLY recommend that you watch the film - The Road ( 2009 - Viggo Mortenson , Charlize Theron , Robert Duvall ) before attending this meetup. It is not a prerequisite for attendance but it will go a long way toward understanding in a graphic and visceral way the pit falls of both tucking in and bugging out. This will be a good time for all involved despite the grim nature of the subject matter, it is always better to have a clue about your options in advance as opposed to being clueless in the moment. Wouldn't you agree? If you have training and/or experience with this topic ( SERE and such) please pipe up and lend your intelligence to the planning of this very important topic for the love and benefit of your fellow human beings. Contact Fernando if you have any special skills to lend or questions to ask. See you soon.
