I'm staying in central New York. I think we are a great baseline for how bad a local economy could be. I'll agree though that Buffalo is probably
worse off. Really, people here are used to companies leaving the area. That coupled with a realistic real estate market means that really it can't
get worse. Oh, and we're taxed for everything in this state.
If anything, I expect people to flee from this area if the SHTF. There's not much to steal around here except for building materials from the
already highly vacant downtown Syracuse area.
We actually have great agricultural areas and a booming wine industry. The border is two hours north or west. Lots of water and fish. Mountain
wilderness is an hour away.
