To the OP... 4 step process for me. (and yes, I have planned this out often and have mapped out routes and plans)
Step 1: Gather family and bugout kit while assessing situation. If we're at full blown collapse emminent stage, proceed to Step 2, otherwise simply
get out of Dodge, heading directly to one of the predetermined locations. (Living in the far North, my locations depend entirely on the season.)
Step 2: Load acetylene welding and head to *a certain local business* which I believe can be quickly secured from entry against pretty much anyone not
wielding their own cutting torch. The place I have in mind could actually be considered a strip mall of sorts, but there arn't windows to worry
about and the connecting stores literally have everything I would need from food to water to supplies to weaponry to fuel.
Step 3: Acquire specific vehicle and park said vehicle inside loading dock of building. I have an SUV but I would need a tundra buggy for winter or a
swamp buggy for spring/summer instead of my current vehicle. It just so happens I know exactly where to acquire this and what modifications I would
need to make (including repurposing a couple of hot water heater tanks, also sold in a connecting store, into additional fuel carriers.) Once this
rig is modified and ready to roll, the waiting game would start. I'd be pretty much willing to wait things out unless and until it became apparent
that there was no "waiting things out" and the only solution was to get as remote as possible and begin a new life.
Step 4: Roll out. Again, seasons matter here. Spring/Summer, I'm heading to the docks to commandeer the largest boat I can which is still
manuverable with either sails or oars. Then I head to one of Alaska's numerous small, uninhabited islands. A lot of these islands already have old
military instalations and bunkers on them, so those would be preferred. Fall/winter, I'm heading to the interior. In all reality I'd probably look
for an isolated cabin or hunting shack that can be quickly fortified and already has a large enough supply of dry firewood to give me a few weeks to
gather enough to last the winter.
Alaska has a couple of huge advantages to it...
inhospitable weather (I consider this a major advantage because it keeps our human population down comparable to most of the lower 48. Less mice,
