Personally I'm ready to pick up and leave within 5 minutes. This is more in preparation of home to home sweeps than looting but either way the
majority of items in an average American home will be useless and having a single place to reside leaves you a sitting duck. I've discussed the idea
with a few people who have a similar mindset and would be useful to join me and the rest of my troupe (people trained in survival and gunsmithing
mostly, an ex-law enforcement officer or two as well as their families). It's been fairly agreed that in any scenario, the best place to be is away
from any people that we don't know well/trust.
As a backup I also maintain a stock of tripwire and punji sticks for home defense if the stay needs to be extended for any reason. It all sounds very
paranoid when typed out but I reside in a sensitive part of MD that regardless of pure civil unrest or martial law, the amount of armed presence in
the area will be very heightened and very pissed off (we have nsa listening stations and the main campus nearby, a russian embassy, diplomats, about 4
or 5 different "law enforcement" agencies, etc and while less important, have many "elite" who own mansions in the are like cheney, harrison
ford, etc...) And I've had a few recent run ins with various federal agencies (not regarding me) that I didn't quite appreciate.
A long run on sentence but I guess to sum it all up, I'd be out of here quick, a neighbor or two is welcome, but overall a smaller group is easier to
maneuver with, hide, and feed. I've made similar plans for other family in different areas but from there the choice is up to them.
