OK so in my Plans are attempting to get home when I am at work or away from home for some reason when the need to get home and hunker down happens. In the planning I tend to go more towards the Natural Disaster then the Goverment is going to lock me up and march me off to the retrain camp and ovens thing. The big problem is I have no idea where I might have to start that journey home from. I drive a dump truck for a Paving company and we routinely work from Eugene to Portland and the top of Santiam pass to almost the coast. A pretty big area. So since I can really route plan from the starting point. I am working on the idea that I should start at the end point. With this in mind my biggest challenges will be the fact I am surrounded on 3 sides but rivers or creeks that much of the year carry enough water and are wide enough to be a PITA to cross. Today while looking at Google maps in the Satelite view I noticed 3 places along one of the rivers that had huge debrie and log jams. While I know the image I am looking at is over 2 years old. I also know that these same spots (all real close to each other) are very likely to continue to be choke points for junk along the slow moving mud bottom pudding river. SO I have made not of this and should I end up coming towards home from that direction and the bridge be not passible. I would have another option for crossing the river hopefully without getting completely soaked (which in itself can be life treatening) So my suggestion is that you carefully get a birds eye view of your exit or entrance routes. You might find something that can be of help. or something you should avoid.
