Where do we bug out to, with the other thirty million in this area.
You make a plan ahead of time so you know where you're going and how to get there. Not wait until it happens and be as helpless as the 29,999,930 people who are
Exactly, a bit of planning is all it takes, you don't have to become obsessed. Prepping is a hobby for some, but those who disregard it totally are fools. I have a cupboard with canned food, water purification supplies, and a well stocked bug out bag. Nothing excessive, my only weapons are sharps (being from the UK) but the peace of mind having a backup plan brings is comforting.
It's not crazy to do so either, take a lead from your governments who've been prepping big time for a while now. Nuke-proof seed vaults, underground bunkers and big money being spent by your American government on insane amounts of ammo, food and water for FEMA/DHS.
If something like economic collapse or war, or a combination of the two should break out, the last place you'd want to be is in a confused crowd, or on a train to a FEMA camp "for your own safety". Even if you argue FEMA DO have good intentions, large groups of totally dependent people will suffer nothing but starvation, disease and misery, and are a prime target for enemies, whether they be domestic or foreign.
The problem is nobody can really say what or if anything will happen. Something is very very wrong right now, all you can do is have simple preparations to survive without electricity or supermarkets for at least a month, and you'll have a better chance than most. And if you have to flee, flee AWAY from towns and cities.
