    Can you imagine trying to move anywhere in Los Angeles during the big earthquake or major attack?

    Below is just Thanksgiving traffic and the parallel streets are barely moving also.

    Los Angeles has been a nice place to visit but as far as living there NO and I will give it much thought before visiting again.

    not without a helicopter. I'd say gyrocopter but I don't think one could get enough runway.

    Grew up on the L.A. beaches...left when it was maybe half the size it is now.

    Might go back at gunpoint...but I doubt it.

    So was just a holiday, an evacuation would be worse. I think an evacuation would be traffic not moving at all because panic would happen with an evac then road rage and then traffic would grind to a halt. I heard it is quite crowd most everyday. I have never been there and never will, the only place I would want to see is the red wood forest.

    Looks like bugging out isnt much of an option there.

    If you live in LA or there a bouts it's a good idea to know the river beds ,that throw away good rain water back to the sea in stead of catching it in lakes so it will soak into the ground .
    California engineers are too stupid to appreciate good sense.
    Any way the river beds can be a good way to travel of the road ways .

    Only way I could see bugging out of LA would be to bug in (under my house) until there was enough die off that I stood a chance of making it out. Still damn near no way in hell I would make it out alive,and I'd be getting what I deserved for living there in the first place.

    If I was bugging out from there I would go West from one of the marinas and up the coast...just saying'.

    I had a street legal dirt bike set up with extras that allow me to go cross county and side roads

    Learn to fly something, then steal one, boat would work, cars and bikes not so much. Maybe steal a train.
    So Glad I got out of that rat race. When I worked in a city I had the traffic and 2 bridges to contend with to get home, not sure I could have made it.

    Even if you aren't a pilot you can fly this. We had a few in my CAP squadron when I was in High School, and when I drive past that tiny airport I still see them there. Ercoupes were designed to fly as though you were driving a car. Get it fast enough and pull back on the wheel and you are in the air. Very easy to land without getting killed the first time as well. Find a long road, fly down low, cut the power, keep the nose level, and glide to a landing. Holds two passengers side by side and not a lot of gear, but it will get you out of Hell-A.

    Sure, just give me the keys to the aircraft that was used to take that picture. I'm a bit rusty on ARTC procedures, though, so I'd have to fly under the radar.
