In all honesty, if you were to take the choice of resistance, your first concern would be to find a place where you will be relatively secure.
Assuming that the group wants to stay in the US, you would need to look at areas of the US that are not heavily populated. Mountains of east tn,
virginia, north caolina, west virginia. The desert areas of the southwest. Areas of North Dakota, Montana. Wild lands of Alaska. Catskills mountains.
Swamps of Louisiana. The areas most people would not and do not choose to live.
Second thing would be making sure that you have enough materials to construct habitats for everyone with you. And hopefully someone with the know how
to build decent habitats to withstand the harsh weather that each of these areas offers.
Third would be the food issue. Better be prepared to eat things you never thought you would and better be prepared to learn how to get that food
yourself. I can fish and given a gun, I could hunt. Never had to gut and skin my food, but I would learn. I can grow vegetables and such.
I can sew my own clothes, it would be the weaving of cotton and such that would be the problem for me.
Medicines would be an issue as Lightmare pointed out. Some things can be replaced with things from nature. Homeopathic remedies are suppose to be
better for us anyways, so I would say that learning about that would be a good thing. Put in the position, I could deliver a baby. I can perform cpr,
I can put in and take out stitches. I know how to cauterize wounds, I know how to treat and bandage wounds.
Water. Assuming there is no nuclear fallout, rain water and rivers/streams. Any small communities would need to be kept near a fresh water source. It
would be illogical to try to move the amounts of water a small community would need to survive. Which brings us back to the location of a small
Basically, what would need to happen, is we would resort to tribal living. We would learn to live as the native americans and ancient celts did.
Barter and trade amongst ourselves. The community would work together for the survival of all.
