I am primarily a lurker :) and I have not been on the site in a long while but thought of you as soon as I read this book. ZS has given me so much good information over the years. I had to give this one back.

My perception of bugging out has been significantly modified over the years. My PAW bug out location is 225 miles from home.
If I have to walk it (likely if things are "that bad"), I have come to realize that less is more. The weight on my kit (30-35lbs season dependent) really limits how much food I can carry.

Foraging would be critical to a successful trek.

I have looked at many foraging books and was disappointed at how well they helped me ID plants and avoid poisonous misidentifications.

Idiot's Guides: Foraging is head and shoulders above any foraging book I have seen.
Pictures, how to harvest, how to ID, how to cook, and potential poisonous plants that look similar and how to discern the difference.

p.s. I am sure you guys have discovered the Solo Stove by now, but just in case you haven't, there is no other stove I would consider if I had to bug out and not carrying fuel really helps with kit weight.

A good foraging ( though maybe not as awesome an ID book) are the series by Euell Gibbons. He lived through the depression and learned to forage out of necessity.
Stalking the Wild Asparagus
Stlaking Healthful Herbs
Stalking the Blueeyed Scallop (must have for any coastal dweller).
