Immediately implement our evacuation plan and head for our bugout location following a prearranged route that avoids all possible strategic targets.
I've timed the route to my folks farm by car or bicycle in case of EMP attack. I can make it there within two hours by bicycle, assuming fallout isn't severe. Otherwise, I'm sheltering in place.

Fortunately, there will not be any fallout from an EMP attack.

True. I still plan on bringing a collapsable bicycle in my car in case we get hit with an EMP while evacuating. An EMP could be a prelude to a nuclear exchange.

Wait until it gets dark, bundle up, grab my buyout bag, put on my night vision goggles and hike to the country's side.

Imo, night vision goggles would be extremely useful for avoiding people.
Plus they give you an extremely valuable advantage in the dark.

Imo if such a strike were to ever happen we would likely be hit by an EMP first.

Top off my gas tank and cans go home and wait to see if there work to go to tomorrow. Top off my water cistern. Tell my daughter and son and law to get out of city and get here.
Feed the dogs

There is a lot of deplorable gun toters between me and the nearest population center.

Think your dogs could be of any help during a Nuclear fallout scenario?

Ones a 110 German shepherd with intense loyalties to my neighborhood. Knows how to be still when on the hunt. Others a chihuahua with nuclear ears and nose. So we sleep well. And their my responsibility so I'll continue to care for them.
Don't think I could make a meal out of them anyway.

Biggest problem will cleaning up after Shepard while holed up for the short term😟

Depends on the dog. We have a 100 pound Giant Malamute/Timber Wolf mix who can serve as watch dog, hunting dog, and sled puller in winter. She is worth keeping around because she will earn her keep.

I once had a Pyrenean Mountain Dog. At over 100 pound and with a strong mouth, it would have been a nice tool in hard times. Much better than many alarm systems :)

My pets are my family. That is value enough to me. :)
