Davy Crockett' mountain man suspect has ties to Moscow
Troy James Knapp is a wanted man, a mountain recluse authorities say is responsible for more than two dozen cabin burglaries in the remote southern Utah wilderness. He's considered armed and dangerous, a ticking time bomb.
It took at least three years for authorities to identify him from fingerprints lifted from vacation homes near Zion National Park.
Now, they just have to catch him. Knapp remains somewhere in roughly 1,000 square miles of wilderness, a virtual ghost in the woods stocked with stolen gear, food and guns.

If I was to do it if say TSHTF my top things would be easy to do.
1. get rid of all id and electronic devises
2. burn off finger prints
3. grow out hair (cause i have none by choice)
4. drop everything in past life
5. start over in new town at least 2000 kilometers away, maybe new part of world
6. get gym id to start with new name and SE new papers in new id
7. start over
simple really if you drop all past and all interactions.
