Once the SHTF, plane tickets, and money for that matter, will be good for tinder and little else

(I'm not talking about the app)

Vehicle fuels and banks will be amongst the first things to go.

One must anticipate the fallout and have either already migrated to a remote bugout site in advance of the crisis climax,

or else maintained a well-hidden bunker underground that can on a moment's notice be accessed from one's home within regular civilization.

Once all hell has broken loose, if it does, there will be no traveling, at least, not with a destination in mind.

Short of maintaining a well-armed, well-trained militia, and really good logistics, including the stockpiling of fuel,

people will be either marooned in a sea of chaos, or on the run, fleeing for their lives.

Good luck making it very far under those conditions.

That's if the economy totally collapses.

My sense is that the guy with the AK is more likely to die from an accidental discharge

Than he is to ever see civil unrest of the magnitude that this thread contemplates.

For the time being, I'm putting my money on the US government remaining intact to weather any crisis and provide the security for a civilized recovery...

There's something about Washington, DC, that inspires confidence.

Like, the world could really go to shit, but this city would be safer than most thanks to the massive security presence.

But I still think about pursuing residency status in a large country near the north pole with a lot of unused space.

Setting myself up with some livestock and a wood stove...

That would really be the place to hide out.

The US is going to have more floods, wild-fires, and refugees.

We'll see if the system founders, or if it could can handle all that stress.

But it would be pretty boring and lonely out there while you wait for the collapse.

I'll take my chances in society, and if it goes down, I hope my death isn't too painful.

But it's certainly a consideration against living overseas for any stretch of time

Just a thought: would it be safer to live in NATO countries? Then at least my passport is issued by an allied nation when I'm begging for assistance.
