It sounds like a good geographical area for resources, but I think you're forgetting that the other 999,999 people in your area will also be competing for the same resources you described. Also, not all of them will be industrious enough or knowledgeable enough to forage for themselves. They'll get desperate within a week or two, and go out looting and robbing to survive. Bugging in my not be a viable option for you at that time. Unfortunately the woods will be full of nutters too scaring off all the game and crapping all over the place like feral dogs..

I live in a modern city of 100,000 but am surrounded by both fields and mesquite trees, 2 good lakes, would def boil water before drinking out of either, and you really must be coming here to get here, no interstate! We have a large retirement population and even a busy air force base, but we are in the middle of no where. I can see supplies being hard to get after an "event" but, do not have the mob problems that a BIG city will have, so I think I'll just lock the door and eat my can of beany wheenys, don't get me wrong I think bad times are coming, but I truely think runnig around in the woods is something I'll let others do untill I have too! I was a scout for 6 years and grew up on a ranch in west Texas so I can do it if I have to, just know my bed is more comfortable than my sleeping bag.
