Sounds like you guys on the west coast have already made plans.

I have made the offer before and I stand by it, to any of you guys in or around philly, NYC, Northern Jersey, etc. need a spot to get to, I am open here in Upstate NY. Very rural area with plenty of supplies and working farmland. Game galore and VERY defendable. I am sure nearly half of this rural town consisting of a church, a fire station, and 3 dozen houses will be left concidering many of the citizens are retired snow birds and many others would leave for their families houses elsewhere.

It sounds like the Sierra may get a touch crowded.

I agree, fight the home ground as long as possible and then bugout North to deep forest, prefer Canada - why deer, elk, less population, etc.! The route, mostly back roads as possible - damn need to get a good, old pickup 4X4, no power crap either!

There are 100 acres full of deer and a small garden with fruit and vegetables. It is an hour-and-a-half drive southwest of Houston, and would be much longer due to the freeways being gridlocked from the morons who have to stop and stare in horror at every zombie stumbling around. I would stay and fight until the path was a little more clear, then I would leave.

The secret is to leave ahead of the pack.

That's alright, you guys can watch my casa for me if you want, I'm leaving, you can have it. If this $hit ever goes global I'll be hanging out in the forest like a primate eating some poor farmers Black Angus steer. I've slept under the star in the winter before and snow is actually a good insulator from the wind.

Joe's survival tip: if your spending a night outdoors the first thing you need to do is find enough dry wood to keep a fire burning all night.

Next, start a fire.

The third most important thing is if you clothes are wet, dry them over the fire.

Now if there enough daylight, make a shelter near the fire. Fire is your friend.

Same here in Washington, Washington state that is. We have an acre, 4 raised bed gardens, apple, plum, pear & cherry trees along with grape and raspberry/blackberry. Just praying there will be time for the fruit to ripen and we are able to can most of it. There are creeks close by so water's not an issue and deer roam the woods, if push came to shove we are just going to hunker down and live the best we can. Winters here are mostly just rainy with occasional cold spells though not much in the way of snow, and I don't sleep well when in a wet leaky drippy tent. I can, again pray we don't have to.

I'm pretty much in the woods here. There's only one road in with woods all around. I think I need a I brake for the bajillion wild turkey on my road. A few springs for water. Plenty flat (enough) land for crops. My garden now is bigger than some people's yards in the burbs. I reckon I"ll stay put. It gets nasty I'll keep an eye out for the window stickers...Come on down
