Long term is not survivable for a single person, if that person is on the move. The only chance they'd have, and slim at best, would be to move south
and hope to outrun ole man winter. If the proper woodcraft is known, a slight chance of survival may be possible in the south where food would be
slightly more available.
I used to live in Vt., with the Green Mtns. as my back yard. If I was still there, and faced the threats of today, I'd already have prepared a place,
deep in the woods. I drove, hiked, and hunted them thar hills enough to know several places that could keep me hidden for quite a time.
A lot would still depend though, on the time of year. Spring would be best. The whole growing and harvest season would be open to stock the larder.
Autumn second best. You can still harvest nuts and berries, as well as hunt enough meat to smoke and dry. Winter... You'd better have enough
commercial products stored away to make it through. Possible to still hunt deer, maybe a few birds, to supplement, but you'll need canned/dried
veggies, fruit, nuts, etc.
All in all, I wouldn't want to face it alone.
