Buy a good bicycle and spare parts, learn how to fix it yourself. The only real gear you have to have are cold weather gear, wet weather gear and sleeping gear, some food to carry to supplement you in times where you have too little luck fishing or hunting or foraging. Pick anything you can find up as you go.

Libraries and google earth were way more valuable than maps, most android devices have enough memory to store an entire trip across the country in good imagery without online access, you can literally see where you are by noting cell towers and water features etc., avoid traveling at night if possible.
You have to pick up anything you can use along the way, protect what you have, and look for a place to disappear at about two fists before sundown. The things that have to be picked up are, in order of importance, water, food, cooking fuel and anything else that comes up short.

I plan on doing it again soon, but don't plan to stop for a lot longer, maybe never.
Thanks for the thread, it's appreciated and let's face it, timely!
Here's a video I watched earlier today. It's also timely, even if she comes off a little on the condescending side lol!
Her channel is very informative for the most part.
I'm just planning on ignoring the people trying to get me to leave. Who wants to leave your nice warm house just because someone says there is a possible disaster brewing.(
