Are you in the red zone?

There is a population of 10 million in LA County. In a space of 4,083 square miles (10,570 km2).

Its probably closer to 15 million I don't know when the census was taken or how many people are there illegally the point is its super dense population in some areas. New York/New Jersey is even worse in that regard.

The red zones on this map will be the most dangerous places to survive. There will be looting and maybe even widescale violence, so we know these are the places that will be the most dangerous.

Do you live in a red zone? What would be your plan? Hold your ground in the red zone and try to somehow sustain yourself in one those areas? Bug out to a more sparsely populated area?

If you don't live in a red zone how would you react to refugees? I live in a red zone, but I have family in very rural areas so I would be welcomed. If you don't know anyone in those areas what's your plan for bugging out?

highest population zones will be the fastest area to spread diseas and are most likely for demoralizing attacks. depending on what kind of EOTWAWKI situation we go into higher population areas will defenitally be more dangerous. also lack of wildlife and suitable far m land will be an issue.

im from nw new york, im going to cananada land first, or south trhough pa or ohio depending on the gear i have. its cold as shit up here.

Lol Zombies.
My plan is too hold out in plain sight in my house/ garage attic/location depends on the situation until a majority die or move on.

I will also get first pick at the police station because it is down my street. And I'm banking on people will be so focused on the police station they over look my house (still like a 100 yards away from the station.)

There is also a few mansion near the police station that I'm sure people will love to ransack. My more modest Cape Cod will hopefully be overlooked.

I live about 20 minutes from a major eastern city (not new york thank fuck), but the mountains are only an hour/hour and half away. Accessible by canoe as well as highway.

I live on the outskirts of Helsinki. Still pretty densely populated.
I guess my plan is to head north and find an unoccupied cabin. If possible I'll drive up using small roads. Otherwise I'll just walk.
I have enough canned food and bottled water for 1-2 weeks.
Pretty sure I won't survive more than a few days though.

I live in the San Francisco bay, Oakland to be exact. First sign of anything I'd bug out to the hills, there's redwoods up there. rabbit, deer, other wild life. I could hide out with my partner. And it never gets too cold up here, at least not cold enough for me to not be able to survive outdoors for a while until I can flee to somewhere else.

That map is pretty bunk. I live in MA, and my nearest neighbor is a quarter mile away. There are places around here like Bristol County where 50% of it is forest and 50% is farmland.

That map just shows the population density per county. You can still have a lot of farmland and forest if your population is concentrated in a small urban area.

Don't let the climate fool you. You could still easily get hypothermia in that region. You would be surprised how many people have ha a similar thought train and because of that, did not bring the proper thermoregulatory equipment. Only needs to be like 50 to start hypothermia.

Couple that with te fact that you probably shouldn't have fires because of the situation, and you have a recipe for disaster. Please don't underestimate the relentlessness of Mother Nature. Being atleast three extra large emergency blankets and brush up on your wild crafting.

Well I thought it was a good way to show how concentrated the population is in different parts this country which is why I mention the population density of cities like LA the map is just an easy tool I dug up off google images to demonstrate which areas of the US have the highest concentrations of people. There's nothing "bunk" about the map its very simply showing population density per county its not like the map is lying to you. Also just because you live in a rural area doesn't mean there's not a huge concentration of people just several miles away from you there's a lot of places like that especially in the northeastern US. MA is a small area to fit that many people in anyways.

If you want something more detailed you'd have to research the area you live in because you can't get that kind of detail from a map like this. Kinda like when I show a map of the highways in the US its not going to have your neighborhood streets on it.The thread is more about finding out people's bug out plans and what kind of area they're dealing with. If you're in MA or anywhere in the northeast you're going to have a hard time doesn't matter where you live.

Not every rural area is viable and not every "red zone" has the same dangers every single region is different. The area I'd bug out too is in the red zone on that map too. The plan for me would be to make it to an area where its mostly dirt roads and I'll be able to put 30-100 miles of forest between me and the nearest dirt road if I need to, there's plenty of hunting opportunities hogs are everywhere, and there's a lot of water sources. With the population as big as it is I'm thinking I'll still end up seeing a lot of people out there at least compared to the zero people you'd see right now.

This of course depends entirely on the type of scenario but since this is post-apocalyptic you just have to assume the worst. You're dealing with 300 million people across the country and a huge number of them are concentrated in small areas even if that place is rural where you live there's most likely a populated area close to you. What's the biggest city near you? How close is it? These are things you have to worry about and in the US almost everyone has big cities near them just by virtue of living in Massachusetts you have cities close enough the entire state is only like 100 miles across. The map is a good way to alert people to how concentrated the population really is in their area. Canada can certainly expect refugees passing through and you can too if you're in a rural area of MA.

If you're living near a major highway expect visitors. Even if you're 30 miles out. You'd most likely want to be far away from any major roads. You can live in a rural area and still be shit out of luck depending where you are and what kind of resources you have. If something happened where the cities became unlivable for most people they're not just going to stay where shit is going bad they'll get out of there. Also the northeast is a much harsher region in general the weather is harsher and its just overall much harder to survive especially when people are softies who have never grown their own food, raised animals, hunted, or done backbreaking manual labor. The environment in most areas of the US has been altered drastically by humans most places will have trouble finding water they can drink.

So my point is don't think you're out of danger just because you're in a rural area. Pretty much everyone in the US relies on stores, electricity, gasoline, and running water to get things done even people that live in rural areas have this stuff.

Common sense? At least I thought that was common sense we're talking about areas where its nearly impossible to live a self sustainable life even if most of the population was wiped out. Maybe 10 million people concentrated in a small area where they need almost all their food and water imported will just be real calm about slowly dying but probably not. Most people live day by day they don't have any food or water saved up to last them through a tough time and in western society people will riot over a hockey/basketball game what do you think will happen when they're starving? They're going to find a way to feed their family even otherwise kind people will do whatever they can to keep their kids alive. Shit will go bad pretty fast in a post-apocalyptic scenario.

I'm optimistic I think that people would come through the bad shit and form communities so it won't just be mad max everywhere but it would be bad at first. Even if there isn't widespread violence people will suffer immensely if you just take away the stores and force people to make it on their own without running water, electricity, and gas. All of this would still be possible to have but it will no longer be a given like it is right now it will be a luxury. A whole lot of people will die and the ones who don't will be desperate.

I think the best places to look if you want to predict what will happen in an apocalyptic scenario is history books.

If they make it to rural areas where they can hunt or fish most people have no idea where to start. Even a lot of hunters might have a rough time so many sit in tree stands with corn feeders nowadays. I wonder how much of the population is out of shape and would be wore out after a 5-10 mile walk? If you're in bad shape expect to have a tough time even if you know how to shoot. Its going to be a lot harder on you getting into shape when you've got no food or water.

That is even assuming there will be anyone left alive in the cities to starve I might be too dead to make it to anywhere.

I don't live in a red zone.

I live in Canada, in the BC interior, my SHTF plan is to get my camping gear and walk north until I find a nice quiet place I like. If I started to encounter a lot of refugees, I would just go further north.

I am a very competent outdoorsman and I know for a fact I can Tom Brown it out there as long as I want, and that I would enjoy doing so. The only thing I would worry about is getting a girl with a copper IUD to come with me and finding some good dogs to take.

I live in Glendale, AZ, so hopefully i'll be fine, seeing as how that seems to be a reasonably moderate zone. I'd just try to survive within my own area for awhile, before finally setting out on an adventure, just keeping in mind that it will take months for things to settle down. Looting houses and what not, hopefully ones that I choose will be empty, because I really don't feel like hurting people to sustain my life. But I think it really depends on how desperate I am to survive.

Most of the old declassified war game reports from the 80s involve geosynchronous satelites with EMP nukes. What the movie goldeneye was based on, except they don't work like that, they just blow up in space and fry all the electronics underneath them. They would probably hit it with one of those and save an ICBM for a military installation or large city.

The cooling pools are currently bad enough that if even one major facility failed on the west coast, the radiation would force us to abandon all of them eventually, like a slow motion chain reaction.

if the Russians attacked America, it wouldn't just be the Canadians joining the fight. The Mexicans, the Brits, the French, the Germans, the rest of western Europe (minus those coward Swiss), and all of nothern Europewould join in too. Not to mention all the regional conflicts (like Saudi Arabia vs Iran, Iran vs Israel, Israel vs Pakistan, and Pakistan vs India). The reason the Russians wont ever attack the US is because it would mean the next world war.

They all point to the inescapable conclusion that to remain on Earth is to accept that human civilization will fall, and the remnants of humanity will speciate or go extinct.

Those Alien space crafts in the sky that change time sync over gravity for space travel, they could take 100,000 years of industry resources to understand.

I propose that man is in its height of sexual propagation to provide a viable source for its survival. That's right, when there's a major earth catastrophe or ice age we will have an ample supply of meat sticks to cannibalize our way through. This is how nature quantifies its animals, and why we need to take control of our own heads and supersede ourselves in our environment.
