Step Six: Selecting Routes to the Crisis Retreats - How to Make a Preparedness Plan that Works & Not Go Broke

"What we anticipate seldom occurs;
what we least expect generally happens."
Benjamin Disraeli

Steps 6 & 7 Selecting Routes to the Crisis Retreats and Rendezvous Spots go together.

When deciding on your routes and rendezvous spots keep in mind that you may have one or more routes that come within a block or two of each other, or crisscross or merge, that are coming from different activity locations and or going to different crisis retreats. With these you can have one rendezvous spot that will accommodate both routes.

Steps 7 & 8 Selecting Rendezvous Spots and their Secret Communication Spots go together.

When deciding on your rendezvous spots keep an eye out for a place to leave a Secret Communication Symbol or message. This is not a note taped to a street sign or tacked on a community bulletin board.

Basically do not finalize your Routes or Rendezvous and Secret Communication Spots until we have reviewed all three steps of 6-8.

Step Six: Selecting Routes to the Crisis Retreats

  • Select at least two Routes to get to each Crisis Retreat from each of your family’s usual activity locations – that are not your normal routes
  • Take your Who, What, When, Where map and look for possible routes and rendezvous spots along each route to each retreat.

Remember: Your usual route and or transportation method may not be available immediately following the crisis event.

Next week it’s on to selecting Rendezvous Spots …
