If the US falls there will be utter chaos and travel will probably not be an option as airports and bus services may not be operational. So don't
count on those services. Something realistic is to find a sparsely populated area in a large forest like a national park.
Make sure there is a water source of some kind, be it a rivers, stream, etc. You can filter the water quite easily using layers of sand and charcoal
and then boiling. This removes most parasites, chemicals and heavy metals.
A forest provides countless sources of food, from wild edibles to small animals and insects.
For defense and security you will want to have a few people you can trust.
I've been thinking that with all the armed gangs in cities, the last place anyone will want to be is there. They will be taking what they want
without much trouble. Best advice, get yourself armed somehow. Guns are only useful as long as you have ammo or can make ammo. Spears, bows and other
primitive weapons will make a big comeback.
