I gotta take the side of S13 on this . I hope that you guys can pick up an MTB as your alternate bug out vehicle in case the much dreaded " Big One " happens in our lifetime. As we all know all our arterial freeway routes and even main streets will be clogged with cars trying to head East , North or even South for that matter. True 4x4's are great to traverse thru obstruction but an MTB is a very practical solution to negotiate thru road blocks caused by natural events , debris from structures or all those cars running out of GAS.
Most likely they will survive an earthquake, unless you keep them under something heavy that collapses. Never need gas, easy to repair, can carry loads efficiently, good for you and allow you to cover much longer distances than walking.

Take note of the nearby retail locations that sell bicycles or your LBS . When calamity strikes run to those places immediatly and secure several MTBs or cycles for your unit. Apply skills learned from TASC on an as needed basis to ensure mission success.

Oh..one other thing, Conceal your identity as well as the dude in the blue overall. Very handy when order is restored and the powers at be decide to go after looters ! I guarantee that they'll be reviewing those CCTVs with a vengance. Right s13?
