Most survival-oriented people lately have been saying that it is wiser to push into rural areas in a SHTF scenario than to stay in an urban area. I have my reservations though. Movement is likely key in any chaotic societal unrest, but it is logistically difficult. Pushing away from urban areas requires transporting stock-piles of necessary goods (ammo, food, water, tools, clothing, etc). My truck is pretty roomy, but sustaining a single person for any period of time more than 30 days requires so much more than most people can comprehend and more than a common short-bed can accommodate. Water alone should take up half of your available space (depending on climate). Is it better to be a squirrel with numerous honey-hole stockpiles of supplies or to go balls-out and lone wolf? In an urban situation, one has many more supply options available, but also more competition for those goods... After the immediate chaos blows over, how long do you stay in an urban area before bugging out? Is it better to be a scavenger or a predator, and how long?
