Considering the elite have their comfy bunkers already built and well stocked, and the amount of Lvl 4 biolabs they have thru out the country, I really don't think there will be any safe places in America.......

I really like this Dies the Fire map. Now I know the story is a work of fantasy, but thinking of it....areas with high population densities would be literally "death zones"
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???

The best area would be the Idaho panhandle, Western Montana, Southeast Washington, and Northeast Oregon.
Tons of crop land, lakes, rivers, forests and so forth. The whole area is ripe with resources. And is ideally located to ride out most if not all disasters. Most of the area consists of smaller communities. Most of which revolve around farming, ranching or logging.
Yellowstone erupts, this area will remain unscathed.
The New Madrid fault goes mega-quake, we are on the other side of the country.
Sea level rises, we are nowhere near the ocean.
California drops into the ocean, we are completely unaffected.
Mt. Hood erupts or Mt. St. Helens erupts again, at most we get a little ash.
Massive EMP takes out the power, no problem. We have rivers, wind turbines and geothermal power in some areas. There are enough resources to rig something up if you don't already have a solar setup. We also have enough cropland and lumber to first rig equipment for woodgas gasification and then to ethanol.
Global nuclear war breaks out, we have no major targets. Worst case scenario, Spokane's Fairchild Air Force Base gets hit. We lose northern Washington and the northern tip of Idaho. Boise and Mountain Home Air Force Base get hit, we lose the southern deserts of Idaho. No big loss.
