Bolting differs from Bugging Out and a Bolt-hole differs from a bug-out location or retreat in two very important ways;
1. Where there may be days or hours notice before you execute your bug-out plan bolting may come after less than a minute’s notice.
2. Where one might occupy a retreat for weeks or months a bolt-hole is occupied only long enough to evade the immediate threat, a few hours to a couple of days.
