Safety. Good question.

I feel safe in my lucid dreams of random nature.

They are mostly "friendly" with the opposite sex. I feel no harm when I have them.

What Himalayas ? The entire himalayan range is a crustal weakness zone.
The polar shift which may cause earthquakes will adversely affect this region .more over survival on the high mountains in hostile climatic conditions is almost impossible!

Oh sinner man, where you gonna run to
all on that day.
Run to the sea, sea will be a boilin'.
Run to the rocks. Rocks wontcha hide me.

Anyone know who wrote this song? My little brother sang it once in a school assembly. Hard to believe the public school allowed it, since the song is based on the book of revelations

i wouldnt say a island. with global warming and sea level rise. a lot of islands would be under water + u take in the fact of storms and tidal waves could take out a island easy.

how bout northern canada or alaska? no real danger some were in the northern rockys. + if a ice age starts though u can migrate south unless the ice age was cause by nuclear winter from a nuke war. then any farther south would be america and the possability of radiation.

How can a US citizen move to Hungary? Is it difficult?
Do you have an acoustic music scene at all? My husband and I are recording artists so fed up with our president and the corrupt politicians
we could scream!!!
We don't trust the US economy and want to move to a place where we can breathe the air as well. How is your Air polution?

Don't know if I will see any replies to this but here goes anyway. No One has mentioned Paraguay or Costa Rica. There a great many high up USA officials who retire to both of those countries. Do they have some form of intelligence which indicate that those countries are safe? The Bush family recently purchased a huge ranch of 1000 acres in Paraguay sitting on top of a massive aquifer.

The isle of Skye in Scotland. Cut off from the mainland.

And it has some nice views as well...not to mention sheep, lots of sheep.

Though I believe my Island would be safe (har har @ *my), I’m not so sure I’d want to survive if something filthy went down.
Sure, I’ve got all the water, nuts, fruit, veggies and grapes for wine, and in an area simply to defend...
But truly, I’m no sure I’d want to live after a nuclear explosion.
I hope I don’t have to ever find out for all our sakes.

Do any winds or jet streams move north? If not, wouldn't the NORTH Pole be the best choice? Santa Claus has got to want to live there for a reason. Maybe he's the ultimate survivalist...

Seriously though, the Aurora Borealis is caused from solar winds reacting to our own earths magnetosphere. Which I would assume means that even if a solar plume were capable of reaching the earth, depending on the time of year and tilt of the North Pole towards or away from the sun, it would be the safest place to be in any event. Solar winds hit the rest of the earth first, no winds or jet streams flow upwards carrying any contaminates of any sort, animals over time will instinctively move north where it's safer allowing evolution to take over and adapt them to extreme cold climates, yes in 50,000yrs we could see Parrot's at the North Pole, and if the polar ice caps did melt it would never get as hot up there as the rest of the world. You would virtually be sitting in Paradise on the top of the world. I could be completely wrong, but I think the North Pole is the best choice.

The difficulty I find is in contributing to this fascinating topic without being accused of making a racist comment, or what passes for racism these days (IE anything not in favour of a multi cultural, multi ethnic, politically correct socialist society)

By choice my ideal location could be temperate or semi tropical, but not artic or equatorial, but I would choose to survive with my own ethnic and culural culture as just being a survivor will be hard enough with having to consider internecine conflicts within the community when things get tough.

Many of the locations others have mentioned would only be suitable providing the indiginous cultural community is either the same as yours or has died off in the original disaster.

We need to plan and choose bug out locations and retreat locations very carefully, and its not just geographic constraints we must consider. Humanity being what it is will fragment and divide in times of crisis into its cultural, ethnic and religous groups, no matter how good the intent is for harmonious cooperation.

Even now during this mild economic reccession affecting my homeland of the UK, as soon as a politician ( this time the labour immigration minister) raises the issue of regulating migration the crys of "Racist" come screaming from the mouths of people who must live in a world full of denial. Even now in the war against terror ( as Shrub likes to call it) The lights are still on, people still have food and fuel ( though very expensive at that) yet tensions between various cutural, religous and ethnic groups grows daily.

I suggest the issue of retreat locations needs to be debated in much more depth than just location.

Or if the greys, who are reported to have planet tipping abilities, decide to push the reset button. Which would be safe then?

I would have to agree that New Zealand looks like the most promising location to be if the world turned pear shaped. Consider the following:

1) New Zealand is geographically isolated from the rest of the world, making a nuclear attack seem unnecessary and difficult. The country is broken into three main islands with thousands of smaller islands. The three main islands stretch a long way making the country very spread out (to drive from Wellington to the top of the Kaitia, on just the north island takes about 24hours)

2) New Zealand is large enough and has enough resources (including gold, oil, iron, and fresh water, forestry) to sustain itself COMPLETELY. There are the means for self-sustained energy, include wind, geothermal energy, major rivers and sea currents for potential aqua turbines. NZ currently possesses the technology to make these things happen.

3) New Zealand’s landscape is some of the most diverse in the world with mountains reaching 14,000ft, deserts, lakes and the most fertile soil in the world. Similarly the climate is diverse with low lying areas in the south getting snow, and temperatures in the far north that never really get below 12.c in winter.

4) NZ has 64,000,000 sheep, 29,000,000 cattle and three million people, millions of acres of orchards, some of the best fishing in the world.

5) It is the only place in the world that has no deadly animals (I believe Ireland, the only other country with no snakes, has a poisonous spider).

6) NZ houses some massive caverns and underground cave networks stretching kilometers that could house thousands of people need be.

However, we do have a problem with those pesky Orcs, a few bad elves and the occasional bandit horde of Rohans.

I should probably tackle the Volcano issue pertaining to New Zealand. NZ’s volcanoes are extremely active, which is potentially a good thing. The reason Hawaii is considered less of a threat than Yellowstone is that it’s continually ‘venting’. Similarly NZ volcanoes are often erupting, releasing the pressure and subsequently the risk of some catastrophic eruption. Particularly mount Ruapehu is on a cyclical eruption pattern, such that it never goes long with throwing something up.

The mountains are also quite isolated, except for the ones in Auckland (but hay that’s only Auckland
). NZ has very few major disasters compared to other countries.

NZ also has something to consider...The Mongrel Mob, who are a pervasive gang that permeates both Islands and their method of operand is selling what they call "Pea" or Ice. This particular gang is something to consider if you are fleeing to a foreign land thinking everything is safe and sweet, as they are violent, aggressive and have large membership and could very easily make you have a bad hair day.
