I'm only 15 miles North of the GWB, in jersey, by my bug-out location is another 72 miles up the road from me in Sullivan County.
More likely to be killed off as an 'outsider" up there, than by the golden hoard.
A guy named Rawles has a site called survivalblog, which has some good knowledge to share for when TSHTF, or just everyday living.

I will check out the site, but I have 13 animals, and no regular job. We live week to week now.
I don't even have money for all of us for that much food.
I won't leave them behind. .

That's a tough one. If you won't leave any animals I wouldn't know what to suggest. The idea of feeding yourself plus 13 animals while being on the move would seem unlikely, if not impossible. It all really depends on WHAT, if anything happens. The protocol for economic collapse, pandemic, nukes, domestic/foreign terrorism and natural disaster are all different. I'd say we've been overloaded with the 'legitimacy' of each of these outcomes so that nobody can truly be prepared for anything.

I realise this all isn't much help. So start with something which is free until your financial situation changes, learning. If you're interested/worried regarding your prospects during a disaster scenario then make a personalised plan. There are many good articles online, but none will be specifically right for the guy in a huge city with 13 pets. Read through many existing survival websites and pick and choose the parts that are right for you.

I'd like to stress you shouldn't let this consume your life entirely. You can have your normal life but take out half an hour a night to do some reading or some planning.

iagree.gif Medusa at the very least, have a map with route planned (major roads might not be the best) and hoard enough food for even one day. That'll put you miles ahead of the rest who have no plan of action at all.

Well, I have enough carriers to transport them all actually,as they say to do this for them, but it would be very unpleasant.
I know if I left them behind, they would die.
Maybe a couple could handle the streets, but my guilt would be off the charts
