Worth the Wait

Nearly seven years ago, I made one of the most extravagant purchases of my life. After a couple of years of saving money, I bought a shiny new silver sedan. This beautiful car was fitted with a luxurious custom grill. For the first several months, I constantly looked at my stunning new car through the windows of my back door. My acquisition was definitely worth the wait. I’m glad I waited to save the money needed to make a cash purchase. Now, I can enjoy my car without having to worry about monthly payments.

3 Reasons To Consider Adding A Truck To Your Disaster Plan

by Constance Bryant

No disaster plan is complete without the inclusion of a bug-out vehicle that can be used to get yourself, your family, your friends, and all of your supplies safely to a predetermined bug-out location where you can ride out the disaster in peace. Listed below are just a few of the reasons that a truck should be considered as part of your disaster plan.

Tough

One of the most important features to look for in a bug-out vehicle is resilience, mostly because you will need a vehicle that is tough enough to stand up to a lot of hard use without breaking down on you. This is very important, as you do not want to have a vehicle that will break down on you while you are trying to get away from a disaster area or break down before the disaster has passed. 

A truck is a very good choice in this aspect because many of them are designed to be used extensively in harsh applications. For example, many trucks are used in the construction and farming industries where they are often called upon to tow large loads and handle rough terrain repeatedly throughout the day.

Cargo Space

Another important feature for any bug-out vehicle is a lot of cargo space. Cargo space is going to be necessary because you will need to have the ability to move large amounts of food, water, fuel, and other supplies so that you and your family have the necessities to survive until the disaster passes. A truck's large bed will be able to provide you with more cargo space than just about any other type of vehicle.

Four-Wheel Drive

Finally, you never know when the roads are going to be passable when a disaster strikes, so having four-wheel drive capability is very important. For example, during a disaster, the roads out of a city may be blocked by debris, traffic, or flood waters.

When that happens, you need to have the flexibility to go off-road to get around those obstacles or to take less obvious routes out of the area. Thankfully, there are many trucks on the market that can help you out with this aspect, as they will often be equipped with effective four-wheel drive systems.

Visit your local auto dealer today to take a look at and test drive the various trucks that could make fine additions to your disaster plan. A truck is a good choice for a bug-out vehicle because many models can combine four-wheel drive and toughness with a large amount of cargo space.
