Ive been doing a lot of survival preperations for my family and I for the last 4 years. There is just one question I have to ask you all, and that is
where do you think the safest places would be in America, if the SHTF??? this could include an Economic collapse, X-class solar flare, Natural
disasters, ect.... pretty much anything that would stop all communications, distribution of food, government collapse, everything that we depend on to
have normal lives on a daily basis , completely Gone.
During my survival preperations ive taken great strides to think of many many different scenarios that could effect the way we all live. Im an
engineer, so first thing besides stalking up on dehydrated food, seeds and a lot of water was, building a movable Electrical grid, with solar panels,
wind generators, charge controllers, Inverters and 12- 6 volt, t-105 batteries hooked up parrallel, and in series, to create one giant 12 volt
battery. Not to metion all the weapons and ammo i've been able to get. including primitve weapons, like a crossbows, long bows, traps, ect..... . it
still wouldnt be enough without an excellent location for resuppllying my food rations and water, I know what I would do and have already planned,
trained ourselves, and even did a mock test of what my family would do. It worked out pretty good, we spent a week in the deep forest of Arkansas,
without much supplies and relied heavily on killing our own food and finding and boiling our own water, and trying to start fires without matches or a
lighter (very hard) but was able to get it started, let me tell you though living just for one week, was NOT as easy as everyone thinks at all. Ive
been a hunter my whole life, but even with those skills, tracking, finding deer scrapes and rubs we still found it very hard. Being located in the
mountains of west central Arkansas, does give me some advantage, and disadvantage. Im close to my bug out location and underground shelter, Ive got
plenty of wilderness to hunt and hide out, im at a pretty high elevation, but the weather here can be beautiful and brutal all in the same week. Im
way inland from any kind of ocean effects, but close enough to navigate a major river system if we need to go farther south. but enough about my plans
This is where my question to you all comes in. Where do you all think, are some of the best well rounded areas are to bug out, considering your
going to have to resupply your food and grow food eventualy after your rations are gone. Would you head for the hills? stay in the city, scavenging
for food, or just wait for help, which I highly suggest not doing.
I plan on merging with other survivalist, and all around group of about 10-15 people with different skills and traits needed to start over. we all
have the plans and maps to get to my location, and we are all in favor, that if we find people along the way that can carry there own weight and
provide to the survival community then they will be allowed in or voted in, whichever.
I know many on here have their own plans of survival, but I think it will definetly take a tight knit group of smart, common sense, overall common
knowledge of Farming, Hunting, and a strong mentallity to make it through a global disaster that starts the world over. Good luck to all, when the
SHTF, because I truly believe its coming, maybe not 12-21-12, but soon, just look at the news, economy, ect.... its going to implode, and yes Gold is
good, but when your starving and a person is holding in one a hand a piece of deer meat, and in the other a bar of gold, I'd pick the meat anyday
when in survival mode like that.
