Oh, I forgot to mention, I saw a WA state plated HMMWV (a soft top 4 door) on the road the other day. This was always the buggaboo of military HMMWVs --- getting them street legal.

They are not the perfect bug out rig, but they are simple and tough. 24V creates some issues but not insurmountable.

"Half the harm that is done in this world is due to people who want to feel important. They don't mean to do harm -- but the harm does not interest them. Or they do not see it, or they justify it because they are absorbed in the endless struggle to think well of themselves." – T.S. Eliot

"The right of self defence is the first law of nature: in most governments it has been the study of rulers to confine this right within the narrowest limits possible. Wherever standing armies are kept up, and the right of the people to keep and bear arms is, under any colour or pretext whatsoever, prohibited, liberty, if not already annihilated, is on the brink of destruction." - St. George Tucker

A careful definition of words would destroy half the agenda of the political left and scrutinizing evidence would destroy the other half. - Thomas Sowell

"To ban guns because criminals use them is to tell the innocent and law-abiding that their rights and liberties depend not on their own conduct, but on the conduct of the guilty and the lawless, and that the law will permit them to have only such rights and liberties as the lawless will allow...

For society does not control crime, ever, by forcing the law-abiding to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of criminals. Society controls crime by forcing the criminals to accommodate themselves to the expected behavior of the law-abiding." - Jeff Snyder

Personal weapons are what raised mankind out of the mud, and the rifle is the queen of personal weapons. The possession of a good rifle, as well as the skill to use it well, truly makes a man the monarch of all he surveys. It realizes the ancient dream of the Jovian thunderbolt, and as such it is the embodiment of personal power. For this reason it exercises a curious influence over the minds of most men, and in its best examples it constitutes an object of affection unmatched by any other inanimate object.

Few years ago I was seriously thinking about getting one of surplus BRDM2.
wikipedia link - https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/BRDM-2
Pros in a nutshell:
- bulletproof (AK rifles at least)
- can use internal air-oxygen tanks for crews( in case of chemical attack)
- can swim for extended periods of time if needed.
- can switch from 4x4 to 8x8 (two additional wheels on each side with hydraulics)

few photos here:

I don’t know how ‘seriously’ you were thinking about it, but with only 20 in the U.S., good luck.
