If TSHTF should I stay where I am?

Hi fellow QLDer!
My two cents worth; have several contingencies prepared. I for one do not know what form the S hitting the F will take. Laying low at home may not be an option. Prepare a BoB for yourself and family members. Keep a half decent first aid kit under the seat of your car. Copy ID, insurance, banking details etc AND irreplaceable family photos onto some memory sticks and distribute them amongst trusted family members in several locations for safe keeping. Know the roads into and out of your area. Pack some lightweight non-perishable foods, some towels and a tarp in one of those black plastic camping (?) boxes and keep it near the car in your garage. But I guess the most important thing is to keep your perspective... these things are like insuring your house against fire. It might never happen, but it's best to be prepared. Also keep your fingers crossed we don't see a big tsunami in SEQ. The Goldie has no protection south of S Straddie.

I have begun to question if any place on the planet would be safe.
Perhaps being underground, there are many reports that various gobrmnts, have underground cities.
Your closest one would be Pine Gap.

Thanks again for the replies.

I have already setup a bob in the garage right next to my car and I have a first aid kit in my car.

The most likely scenario(s) that I see happening here in south east QLD (not in any specific order) is floods, power outages, bush fires, tsunami, a terrorist attack, World War III, Asteroid/Comet Destruction, Solar Flares/Sun Related, Global Economic Collapse/Martial Law and Just another regular day.

Floods have come and gone in the last few years and didn't affect my location (not saying that it wont happen), but I think we are in a pretty good spot in relation to that. Plus there is a hill just up the road

Power outages I have pretty much got covered with the solar. I am thinking of getting some type of battery backup system working. Anyone got any good links?

Bush fires - I have cleared a fire zone around my house and have non flamable clothing and protection if I have to fight a fire, also got 1 very long hose.

Tsunami I have a bug out plan for, depending on size and strength, also having enough notice is critical for this one.

Terrorist attack, hmm, might need to think about this one. I have duct tape to seal up doors and windows if its a chemical attack. As for other types of attacks I doubt that a terrorist will want to bomb my local woolworths. I would most likely stay where I am.

World War III, Asteroid/Comet Destruction - A direct impact and I would not have to worry about anything as everything I can see would most likely be destroyed along with me and my family. If it was far enough away to survive and depending on being fore warned, I would most likely head underground. As a result I am currently researching cave systems and the closest ones.

Solar Flares/Sun Related - In the event of this kind of cenario, I would stay put and ride it out.

Global Economic Collapse/Martial Law - Stay put and see what happens.

Just another regular day - Kick back by the pool and have a few brews

Think I might drag the wife and kids on an outing to the local cave's to check it out.
