Depends on situation X of course, but the most common answer will be away from the masses of other people but somewhere where every other survivalist
will not go as well. I have a place chosen that is only a 40 minute drive from home, or (depending on the situation) 2-3 days of hiding and crawling.
Smaller wilderness areas with an "end" are a good idea. Some place where you have to walk an hour through unwelcome terrain to get to, that is
mostly unvisited. We have dozens of wilderness and conservation areas in Central Florida where I go hiking and camping and a few of them I have never
ever seen another person there, even on weekends. Most of them have access to fresh water that can be filtered and cleaned and enough room to grow
crops if needed. Most also happen to be "off the beaten path". I would go away from any major highway or interstate/toll roads.
I was on another forum once and a guy in upstate New York was planning on running to a place in Georgia, while a guy in that same area of Georgia was
planning on running to the other guy's area of upstate New York.
Best laid plans, right?
Away from people, bring lots of supplies, bring fresh water or a good filter (life straw for example), and hope that every other guy does not show up
at your spot Liek Yellowstone, you do not want to be the last of 2 survivalists shooting each other for the last MRE's.
The idea of running to another country is nice but for those of us without money it would be impossible.
