I think you're statement is spot on. Unless a person or group/family has ties and connection to a different area, or has made plans/provisions for
a bugout, why would you choose to thrust yourself into an unfamiliar terrain or area?
In the event of U.S. meltdown, I think that basically means a global metldown. Not trying to overvalue the U.S., but at least financially, many
countries' monetary systems are closely tied to the U.S. We would stay here, and it's perception of possible patterns that lead us to move here
14 years ago. Sure, a small insurgency could take us over, but then what? nothing to export, and few natural resources for those who don't
understand the life here. It's not an easy life, but it's simple, and I value that above many other systems.
You want to eat? Here's a coconut. Over there, that's the sea. Fish live there, and lobster and whelks and conch and other critters that I'd
try if I were desperate. I'd eat a LOT of things before I'd saute a sea cucumber, having seen them several times at night, twisting and gyrating,
looking like a giant ......... NEVERmind.
It's a good thing to think about these things. I would guess that most places that people think of as their "bugout place"..... well, there might
be several folks that also think so. In a collapse, property rights and borders belong to those who can hold them, those who can take them.
