Get Home Project
Reading some of the feedback from you all last week about motorcycles as BOVs got me to thinking about how I would get home from work if the main thoroughfares were blocked. I've long had alternate routes planned for getting home, but they all involved different main drags. I've started mapping out some alternate routes. The city where I work is long and skinny, and bordered by a major river. I think I got a side route to the end of the city planned where I'll go 90% through residential areas and come out near where I normally get on the interstate. It also comes out near where a prepper friend lives and could provide shelter if needed. I'll test it out later this week and see if my theory holds true. Do you have alternate ways home that bypass major roads? Alternate routes are easy... back ways can be challenging.
