My closest friends and family have actually planned for just such a scenario. Each household has a map of the surrounding Dallas/Fort Worth area.
We've picked out a point in each cardinal direction that we could reasonably walk to within 2 days time encumbered by packs, and a little cache at
that location, with batteries, walkie talkies, and a notepad.
That way we can all meet there, and if we have to abandon the post before the others arrive, we can leave a message. If we have to hide out nearby the
post, we can leave one of the 2-ways there, and keep the other with us. It's not much, but it's a plan and a rally-point for us to meet up with our
BOBs before heading on to the
From there we have two different semi-permanent relocation points within a week's travel on foot, where private farmed land is owned by two of our
group. Thanks to the "Food Supply" thread, both locations will soon be stocked with heritage seeds, rather than the existing packets.
You never know. We might live our entire lives in this area and never once execute the "Alas, Babylon" Plan, but it's good to know that if it's
ever needed, we won't be relying on any FEMA camps, or waiting on any rescue missions. I'm content to rebuild civilization starting from the farm
and working upward if the one I'm living in comes to a halt.
