    Nice Idea...it is a 63 footer with 3 staterooms and a couple of good sized diesels, so it would certainly make it, but the owner is one of my head in the sand Calif friends who thinks the pendulum is about ready to swing back..."It can't happen here".

    So I think I load up the motorhome with 3-6 mos of food, multiple water filters, a small arsenal, a goodly chunk of cash/gold/silver and some potential early collapse trade goods and try the nomad route.

    Can he swim?
    Now, before anyone goes off on that as advocating shall we say, mutiny at sea: In my not inconsiderable time on the water, I have run into more than a few boat owners that admitted to being unable to swim. One actually admitted that he loved the water and bought the boat so he could enjoy it without swimming. That said, if hitting the high seas for northern waters becomes desirable (or necessary) that snowflake might change his mind.

    This guy can live indefinitely in a truck camper any where I can drive to, my work shop trailing behind.
    Problem is ,knowing what to do with 20 good laying hens, several fish, a garden, 2 years of preps, 2k water storage, building material, and steel, and black smith shop, 200 gallons propane in several tanks, several 55 gallon drums gas and diesel, and tons of tools that won't fit in my shop trailer. and that's not every thing.

    I love NW Montana and had looked at it as a possible relocation site prior to my move to N Idaho. However, since my move here I have had no regrets in this choice. And I am still close enough to Montana that I can easily run over that way for the day. Preferably on my motorcycle!

    Kentucky. Nothing ever happens in Kentucky. Never on the news, no tornados, no floods, no hurricanes. Just good corn liquor and chill people. If I weren't so old....

    You might want to make a decision soon , with all the evacuees from the east and south headed any where but where home use to be empty spaces are filling.
    I'm in southern California and seeing a lot of vehicles from other states more often than usual .

    Very good point. I have never thought of or considered Kentucky. I could not tell you much about it but I will now check it out.

    There are only a few things that concern a southerner.
    A black man with a pistol
    A Mexican with a knife...and
    A car load of Californians pulling a U-Haul trailer across the state line!

    Don't come to NM, 250 to 300 sunny days a year, most of the state is seismicly inactive, most winters are very mild. And Mexicans lots of Mexicans.

    do you have an income tax?
    just stay out of the west end armpit and TN is great.
    We're going left just like everywhere else, but we're in the back of the pack.
    Might even stall it for a while if we could just stop electing RINOs.
    Not too fond of wildfire so most of the "redoubt" is out.

    How To Draw A Radius Around A Google Maps Location

    Draw a circle of 300 miles around any city over 100K - still think your (any) place is still good to go?

    It was amazing what a graphic can do - 'knowing' is one thing - seeing will really drive it home.

    Google Earth Pro - the version that draws the circles has been free for the last few years. Just use GEPFREE when you enter your registration code.

    I did the circle trick around areas I'm interested in relocating to in order to help identify threats as well as potential bug out locations. I also marked nuclear targets and other threats and resources.

    Pretty much rules out anything outside of Alaska.

    Try the circle trick around places you DON'T want to inhabit, see what's left.

    Bits of TX and a lot of Eastern MT are still 'open'. But yeah, almost the entire Western US is within one city 'circle' or another.

    I still live in Urban Ak - but it is a short drive to thin population areas.

    South Island of New Zealand. No dangerous wildlife, Ar's are legal, suppressors unrestricted, people are friendly, speak English (sort of), countryside magnificent. Just the odd earthquake to deal with and you need $1mil US to buy a house in any of the nice spots.
