... when the other shoe drops? My job is unique in that I can live just about where I want in the Western US as long as I can get a high speed Internet connection. I'm currently on top of the hill in Oregon City, but wondering about better locations to be if/when the sky falls. Inner city pretty much rules itself out for obvious reasons, but what advantages does rural have over suburbia and vice-versa? Any states/counties better than others? I'm thinking fly under the radar self sufficiency, but not so good I have have to constantly defend it. I'm not looking for your secret spot or fishing hole, just practical information to select a site to keep breathing if the collapse happens during my lifetime.
