Russia and a couple of other eastern europian countries may have parts that would be ok to live off grid. Africa probably wouldn't be a good
plave to try to live off grid, though some parts would be better than others. Most of the US has sections that would be good for living off grid, but
the coast are mostly non options, especially the east coast. Canada would be tough mostly because of winters, but that is a problem in the northern US
as well as the Russia.

Russians and people in other eastern European countries who already live off-grid as that is their way of life, may object to having their territory
invaded by outsiders. Especially 'rich' outsiders carrying handy bug out bags full of useful equipment.
Here is a true story that I cannot verify as it comes from the person who experienced it, no evidence!
A young Polish woman and her two small children, were abandoned by husband and father who had decided to join the SS and shack up with a German woman.
The Polish woman decided to get the hell out of Warsaw as she could not deal with seeing her husband and his new bint parading their privilege about
town. She converted the pram into a sled, packed her children and a few belongings into it and trekked across Poland. It was her plan to get to a safe
port and then head for Canada, where she planned a new life. As a Catholic, she felt sure she would find sanctuary in various churches on the way.
One day, after days without food, she came across a beetroot field, the crop frozen into the ground. She scratched at the ground with her bare hands
and eventually dug out a beet and set about preparing to cook it for her children to eat. She did not anticipate the Russian soldier who had been
following her, waited until the beet was ready to eat, and then attacked her. Rather than risk being killed and her children being left to the harsh
environment and the mercy of a man who would steal stolen food from the mouths of children, she let the beet go.
She and her children survived and made it to Canada.
