Choosing a Bug Out Location (BOL) Based on Climate Zones


Published on

When choosing a BOL, it should be based on climate zones. Consider micro-climates and hardiness zone, determine the solar patterns and check the SunCalc Map.

Choosing a Bug Out Location (BOL) Based on Climate Zones

  2. 2. Choose the Perfect Hardiness Zone for Your Preferred Crops What zone is the property in? In different climate zones, the year- round temperatures are different. Make sure to know what zone the property is, and pay attention to which plants you can grow there. If you want a nationwide hardiness map, the USDA hardiness map is probably the best place to go.
  3. 3. Micro Climates Are Your Solution for Diversification • Create a micro-climate that is a little warmer than the rest of your property. You may want to try reducing wind, providing evening sun, while heating an eastern thermal mass. • If you want something that is only up to hardiness zone 6, then you need to create a cooler micro-climate. You could consider some edge tree coverage and blocking the sun in the late afternoon and evening.
  4. 4. Your Property has Micro-Climates that Grow More Plant Life! Your property will have what is called “micro- climates” on it. Based on sun patterns, wind patterns, and overall climate, you will have different micro-climates in different areas. Heat storing masses, solar patterns, wind patterns, and even more can determine your micro-climates.
  5. 5. You Can Extend Your Growing Season with a Greenhouse There are many different models of greenhouses and many different building techniques based on your location. If you choose the correct greenhouse, you can extend the growing season by months! You can make them cold hearty and make them cool in the summer heat.
  6. 6. When Choosing a Bug Out Location, Always Think about Growing Food Pay close attention to what you like to eat, and where that stuff is grown. You may not be able to eat that stuff when you are in a disaster and growing your own food. Understand your climate. Also know about your micro-climates and how you can create some. Lastly, remember that you can always grow in a controlled environment.
