Scott Finazzo has posted a review of Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters on his excellent travel and adventure blogger: Lure of the Horizon. Here is what he had to say:
Scott B. Williams is back with a companion to his previous offering Bug Out: The Complete Plan For Escaping Disaster Before It’s Too Late. Scott has become a friend, an inspiration, and an advisor to my literary pipe dreams. I have read most everything that he has put in book form and have yet to be disappointed. Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters: Build and Outfit Your Life-Saving Escape is no exception. Read on…
In his latest book Williams continues along the lines of catastrophe preparation. This time he isolates vehicles and shelters and manages to, yet again, do what he does best. He walks the reader through the to do’s and not to do’s as well as the things to consider. I am a novice when it comes to the topic of catastrophic preparation so I appreciate the way he manages to offer examples and advice that clearly come from personal experience. It is with that voice of experience that even minor and otherwise overlooked details are relayed.
Bug Out Vehicles and Shelters: Build and Outfit Your Life-Saving Escape is a very in-depth book that reads quite easily. It would be impossible to include every option of each type of bug out shelter and vehicle so Williams selects a few of the major players to compare. He also often offers advice and recommendations for deviation from just purchasing out of the catalog offering “do it yourself” tips in many instances. At the end of each chapter checklists are provided which are surprisingly thorough and serve as an excellent tool when utilizing the book for its intended purpose.
Grab a highlighter and dive right in. This book is both an entertaining read as well as a reference book. It won’t make you an expert by any means, but you will most certainly come out on the other side of it a little bit better prepared when making life safety type of decisions as they relate to “bugging out”.
