I would have said Texas, but it is a little iffy right now, so I will go with Oklahoma! It is like Texas-Lite!
Plus you have the Indian Reservations as sovereign land, and you have a lot of caves and lakes.

Texas-lite?! That's funny!

We've got plenty of flat, treeless land so you don't have to worry about people sneaking up on you. There's no trees to block your view.

The place smells like cow dung so nobody wants to sneak up on you anyway.

The dustbowl was just a fluke and all the people driven insane by the constant swirling dirt clouds were just sissies.

There's hardly ever any teratagenic, hallucinogenic ergot on the grain fields anymore. By God! we sprayed enough pesticides on that stuff that it wouldn't dare infect the crops anymore.

According to recent articles, we do seem to have a problem naming the first president but Oklahoma wasn't a state back then anyways so who cares, right?

We do have Indian reservations but several Native Americans seem to have escaped and have been seen partying hardy with the cowboys. No one's sure who should be rounded up at this point.

I think the Baptists still tar and feather undesirables so if you decide to come here be sure to thump your bible soundly. If that doesn't work, show them your gun. They're easily distracted by talk of MOA, barrel rifling, etc.

It may be easier to move to Montana or one of those other choice locations. That's it. Keep moving. Off you go.

It's ok now all you Okies. I think they're gone. Anybody up for a trip to the lake or a weekend spelunking?

Most states would be great. Most.

The key is to get away from the large cities in any state.

In a SHTF situation, all cities are going to suck more than a black hole.

One might be wise to study some of the predictions made by the Anasazi tribe about the end times. Some believe the four corners area will be one of the areas to survive cataclysm, and welcome the "visitors" that will usher in a new era. If you research the four corner area it has been a hub of activity for several decades. Look at the map of the US and you will see right down the road from the four corners area is Roswell , Los Alamos, Phoenix, Denver (Denver International airport) among other sights of interest. I'll probably head to Sante Fe. I hear it's real nice after world collapse.

New Hampshire works for me. Got mountains, lakes, plenty of relatively untouched land, etc.

I would agree with you that overall, not just SHTF scenario, but if one wanted to be in the safest area for every conceivable human disaster/geological disaster, the Four Corners area, including all of northern New Mexico would be ideal.

But if it's strictly a SHTF situation, most states have rural areas to go to, and I sincerely believe that the absolute worst places to be would be in the larger cities.

All those people in such a confined area with very limited resources.

I think I'll stay here in south Ga. Its real nice except for the humidity but once your here for a while you get used to it. (trust me, I came here from socal)

If I had to pick a state, I would remain in the West ... Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Noth Cali. (hey, if Bigfoot can survive here, the rest of us can)

I would pick Alaska. The abundent things to eat, sustain. I would find out where the Indian reservation are, and go with them. They already live a life off the land. Yeah, it'll be cold, but I'll be alive.

It depends on job availabilities.
That should be your main decision making ... yes?

If I was financially secure I'd move to S. New Hampshire.
New Hampshire is beautiful.
The air is clean.
It's not over or under populated.
You are close to a big city for extra-health care (Boston).
You are near the ocean and the mountains - both.
Ski. Swim. Ice Skate. Hike. Bike. Fish. Hunt.

I love the Presidential Mountain Range area.

I'm also a New Hampster. Been here most of my life, but those few times I had to live somewhere else for a little while, I always knew I'd be back. It's in my blood.

Beautiful mountains, still nice country areas...

Live Free or Die!

Avoid big cities.. avoid small towns.

Big cities will be nuts. Small towns won't take kindly to outsiders.

Registering yourself as a native american is probably the best bet.

Leave the country altogether. We leave for Amsterdam in 3 weeks.

I would not stay in the northeast,whre i am. its too clsoe to metropolitan areas, and already overpopulated. That was an interesting map! i kinda dont belive it though...the map shows impact areas, and is from 1990. All impact ares seem to to be midwest. not even washington DC was in the red! its not accurate, to me.

Don't come to Texas. There's nothing to see here....move along now, move along!

Just my 2-cents

How about any state where you can scoot over to Canada without having to cross a bridge, tunnel or swim across a lake?

That will last until the US takes Canada over, but by then it won't matter anyway.

So, what state would you go to?

um... you DO understand that New Hampshire is filled with Gun Toting Libertarian Secessionists and Vermont is very Socialist prone right? virtual yin-yang there.. and Maine is like.. CIA retirement land.

lumping "new england" as one "area" is erroneous..

but then again.. hey you might want to consider the "Future 10 Districts" map before you decide...

states aren't going to be any longer.. man i bet those commemorative state quarters are gonna be worth alot once there are no states lol

crap shouldn't have said that now you're all gonna horde

Maine. Pure and simple. A lot of wilderness...low population...educated and open minded...great cultural life and food...viscious winters though.

I live in Wyoming and it is a very nice place to live actually. Lots of fishing and hunting available as well as cover and the prevailing winds pretty well keep southwestern Wyoming well protected from nuclear fallout. I really like it here. There are places I've been in this state that if you didn't know any better you would swear you where in Alaska.

There are however much desert area in the state. If you prefer trees I would recommend northern Wyoming (mostly forested) or south western Wyoming because there is always national forest within close proximity (even if where you live is high desert)

Hope that helps.

Depends on the scenario I guess . . .

American Revolution #2 -- Texas all the way baby!!! The GDP of Texas, measured against other countries, would make it the 8th largest economy of the world. If anyone can stand up to the Fed it's Texas.

Pretty much anything else I would probably stay put. I live in Kansas, plenty of rural area here, and mostly friendly rural folks to deal with. I live just outside city limits, hopefully far enough there wouldn't be much spillover from the big-city lunatics during SHTF.

For whatever reason, if I had to pick up & move though, would probably be north/northwestern U.S. -- Wyoming, Montana, Idaho, North Dakota maybe. Except I think Ted Turner owns most of Montana now doesn't he? :rolleyes:
