While getting to know your environment and your surroundings is a great idea, I fail to see how mapping locations where survival type items are.
Should your sit-x be something like Katrina and you start to scavange your selected areas, you will be seen as a looter and soon their after arrested.
Not what I consider self sustained survival.
Should it be a TEOTWAWKI, all of the places on your map are sure to be over run with others who didnt take the time to plan ahead and are hell bent on
getting whatever they can for their own survival and barter.
An unprepared person is likely to sit at a place where there is value, say a coal mine, defend it well and trade his stolen property for things they
cant get. Another will take over a department store, another the station that has all of the propane.
Yes, it is good to know what is around you. But better yet is to know and understand what you can do without the need to scavange and battle with the
masses should it come to that. Away from the people is just that, away from them and all of the man made things that civilization has to offer. I
would rather be in the woods figuring out how to make it on my own than competing with the masses over the cupcake factory.
