Hmmm... to me it would be recognizing and accessing threats, prioritizing the possibilities of each and developing / implementing a plan for the long
term well being of your family / extended family.
It is impossible (unless your extremely wealthy) to prepare for any possible situation. I have to weigh the likely hood of each scenario and plan for
the the most "probable".
Most of these dictate setting up shop underground and concealed as most of the scenarios I believe are most probable consists of disasters that
interrupt the power grid and or transportation which would cause nationwide chaos as most of our population doesn't even have 2 weeks worth of food
Also, this plan is good for most "disasters" barring flood, earthquakes, or extinction scenarios that are far lower in the risk assessment list.
So, threat assessment and pre-planning defines survival in my point of view.... running to the woods (in most places) with a rifle and a bag or 2 is
not my idea of survival since there will be a bunch of people with the same idea and some of them not so nice... you may soon find that the
environment in the boonies is as lawless and dangerous as an urban area.
Living at or walking distance to a pre-planned underground shelter is the best option in my opinion.
