Post Disaster Escape and Evasion - The Journey

  • Jul 12, 2014 · 9:00 AM
  • This location is shown only to members

This Part 2 (of 2 parts) class will start where Part 1 left off (part 1 is not a prerequisite, but you must bring along a bugout bag with you to part 2) with the actual (post-prep) bugout, and cover all of the issues you may not have ever considered, in order to stay alive and well in a hostile environment while enroute by foot, car, bike or boat.  

If there is social collapse due to natural disaster, economic instability, civil unrest or any other myriad of potential triggers, how do you make the decision to bug out and get to a safer environment?  Whether from home to a bugout location or relative’s house, or from office, school or public location to home, or even having to leave your car and travel on foot to home or some other safer location, this class will prepare you to handle even the worst case scenarios. 

Just as importantly, once you have made the decision, what preparation will serve you best in getting yourself and your loved ones out of the danger of the immediate area?


Tuition: $50 in advance or $65 at the start of the class.

Take the full weekend (July 12/13th) for $120 or $150 at the start of the classes.

Get more information about Sunday's Firearms class here.


In this 1-day class, Sam will cover topics such as:

·  Embarking from a safe or known area into the unknown during the day and during the night:  How do you actually leave your home or office safely?  Throwing on a pack and running out the front door may not be the best answer.

·  How to travel in a group:  Formations for foot, bike, boat and car:  Who should travel in front, in the middle, in the rear?  How much space between people or vehicles?  How can you assign duties to each person in a traveling formation to best ensure safe travel?

·  Immediate action drills and rally points:  Expect the unexpected – what do you do when the unexpected happens?

·  Scouting and reconnaissance: Scouting can be dangerous, and yet it is one of the best ways to ensure safety for a group.  How can you minimize risk while scouting, yet still be extremely effective for the rest of your group?

·  Searching and restraining a potential hostile:  What happens when you have to subdue or restrain someone who wants to hurt you?  What are your realistic choices and how can you ensure your own safety while still being humane?

·  Breaking out of handcuffs and zipties:  What happens if you are captured and restrained?  How to get out.

·  Communications and signaling while on the move:  How do you communicate between individuals or vehicles using radios or when you have no radio communication at all?

·  Creating backup plans for route and overnight, and implementing them:  Assume that your route and overnight locational planning falls apart.  Then what?

·  Medical Emergencies while on the go:  What are your priorities and how can you get everyone from point A to point B alive and healthy?

Follow up this class the next day (camp overnight or come back the next day) with Dennis Fivecoat’s tactics class (Part 1 is not a prerequisite, and there is a discount available if you register for both Saturday and Sunday).  If you have not yet had the privilege of taking tactics class with Dennis, I highly recommend it.  He is a superb instructor and will be covering the basics of tactical movement, shooting and response in a team environment.
