Just from glancing at most of the maps provided for nuclear targets, radiation fallout, rising oceans, etc., I noticed that the area of northwestern Arkansas was clear on all or most of them! I know these maps are completely hypothetical, but it looks like I'm heading to northwest Arkansas! LOL
I think the biggest threat there is the locals playing banjos in the woods and asking you to "squeal like a pig" ala the movie "Deliverance."
But on a serious note... what does everyone think of this area? Pros? Cons? I must admit that I know nothing about the area or Arkansas as a whole. I do know that their greatest (or worst) natural resource, The Clinton's, are pretty much all but gone! I also read at sometime that there are a lot of Bigfoot sightings in the woods of Arkansas, so maybe I can join a Bigfoot tribe and they'll shelter me and help me survive. I just hope I can stand the smell!!

I am ready to hitch up the wagon and mosey on out of ole' Cal. What this state has become is a a state of decay. Driving to work everyday is like playing Russian Roulette. Folk here have no regard for YOUR safety if not their own. Self centered "me first, gimme-gimme" demanor and an "it don't affect me directly, so it's not MY problem" attitude has resulted in the social and economical decline of this once great state.
This thread is regarding survival in a state of emergency. Living in Southern California IS living in a state of emergency. Ridiculous fuel prices, astronomical housing prices, scarce employment opportunities, income neccessary to simply EAT. A state judicial system that is a complete failure only promotes the decline; our correctional facilities at 110% capacity (65% illegal immigrants) prompts the next issue.
Illegal immigrants have infested this state and destroyed the integrity of so many communities. Two words: Santa Ana. A once beautiful and historic town that has been reduced to the likes of Tijuana in the span of thirty years. In schools, English IS the second language. YOU- hard working, tax paying American citizen that falls short one day and needs a little state financial assistance ? Forget about it. Come over illegally, drive illegally, work illegally and make tons of babies ? Welcome to CA, here's your monthly check.
There is no sense of community here. no pride. Too many here out to simply "survive" day to day life for themselves, already. Mark my words, the rest of the nation will watch in horror as LA, Orange County, SF, etc. result to a state of barbarianism should an earthquake like this occur.
My advice. Stay out. Get out, when you can.

I'm not even impressed with Northern Virginia and the DC area...horrible place.
