I'd probably hear about it a week later, it's pretty rural where i am.
But, should AHBLRN and i had to move I'd hop out of my chair, inform my roomates, turn the oven off, eat my half cooked ribs quickly while shrugging
my pack on, grabbing a few handfuls of items that could be useful and toss 'em in a duffel. In the event that the roads are open but no vehicles
have fuel, i'd load up the crew in the truck and/or van. From here we'd be able to roll downhill and out of town, and make it in far enough that
we could push or pull, possibly with the assistance of horses, all the way to the settlement. If the roads are blocked, no problem, its a 4 mile
ridgeline hike to the spot, i can be there in an hour if i hustle. Day one.
Day two, wake up, cook breakfast, water the horses, and get ready to start hunting and gathering. If the well pump and solar panel managed to get
EMP'd then somebody will have to be on well duty with a long rope and a bucket. If the EMP was blocked by the canyon walls and surrounding
mountains, then it should be okay.
Day three, commence pioneer style living for as long as it takes.
If civilization civilizes after a few days or even weeks, then it was just a camping trip. Should this be TEOTWAWKI and the mad max days are upon
us, i'd set up a lightweight backpacking rig from my assortment of gear, and hike north, sticking to wilderness, harsh terrain, places where people
just don't do, and stealthing my way up to alaska and get as far away from the ridiculousness that will probably be going on I may take a person
or two with me that can handle the trip and would have no problem living i harmony with nature.
