I know a couple of guys who bugged out before Isaac hit -almost 7 years before. After Katrina, they figured living below sea level wasn’t a really good idea. The mountains of New Hampshire seemed like a safer bet.
It’s a tough thing to do. They had no relatives here. They never saw snow before so they needed a whole new set of clothes. Driving on snow takes time to learn. Heck, they didn’t even do very well walking on icy sidewalks. Fortunately, they had job skills that were in local demand.
Relocation is tough, but for them, it was worth it. They never wanted to be flooded out ever again. For some strange reason, they didn’t trust the politicians when they said everything would be fixed and it would never happen again. They’d rather face a New Hampshire blizzard than trust the levees of Louisiana.
My thoughts and prayers are with the Gulf Coast residents. They’ve been through hell ever since Katrina. At least there’s two guys I don’t have to worry about tonight.
I live in an area of NH known as the Great North Woods. I'm in my dome-i-cile out in the county with my lovely wife and a varying number of family and friends
-part red neck, part hippie but all country. Experimenting and enjoying the adventure of life.
