What weapons to drag where has always been a good debate. a 22 works well on small critters but if some determined 2 footed kind want to mix it up the 22 lacks dependability. You might be hauling a lot of small game ammo to another group.
I did enough time under a ruck to think much can be hauled very far for very long by anyone not in peak condition.
My thought on the bugout compound is unless it has a competent permanent party and already stocked so the arriving folks just need to bring a bare minimum, cuts transport down and flexibility of the trekkers up, it most likely will not be a refuge for you when you need it most.
These situations remind me of that 'War Games' movie where before launching an actual strike the computer runs through every conceivable scenario only to conclude there is no winner.
