Personally, I plan to shelter in place. Then as needed pick up and go else where should the need arise. Bugging out to another nation is all well and
good in theory; but if you can not speak or understand the language there, you are compounding your problems.
Then there is the whole 'home turf' advantage.
I know the lay of the land, where to find water and food.
Though frankly, civil unrest, much less ecological/radiation hazards are not likely to cause a threat to me. Sure there might be some looting, but
that'd be more likely to have an impact on malls, the downtown stores and big box branches. Once those have been carried off, things would fall
quickly back to normal hazards.
The largest TSFH event for my area, would be biological in nature, eg the pandemic sort of thing.
Of which the best thing to do, would be shelter in place and avoid contact with outsiders until it runs its course. Secondary hazards after that would
require the necessity of burning the dead, avoiding cholera and the like.
Personally, I think the most likely TSHF will be pandemic in nature.
Either naturally occurring or some sort of terror attack. IIRC some woman in England was found to have contracted Anthrax via contaminated heroin....
and it'd not surprise me to see it or something really contagious brought in via cocain or some other drug.
But well, the birds are doing a fine job of weaponizing the various H*n* flu variants, too.
