In case you do not plan on "bugging in" for a crisis, this article gives some ideas and discussion for how to go about finding a location, now, as your destination. Guest Article: Strategic Relocation: Are You Missing Out? by Kit Perez - SurvivalBlog.com As an apartment dweller in a larger city, I consider a bug-out to be preferable to staying at my present location. That is predicated on a crisis which makes living in a city problematic. Note, please, that some types of crises DO NOT warrant using our escape plans. This requires a judgement call, preferably one which is made before the crisis reaches the point of disaster. I'll also point out that the article speaks not only to a crisis response, but to exercising your long term plans to Relocate to a better place. You don't need a crisis event to do this... It is a response to your recognition of a larger situation which makes it more desirable to move. As an example, I'll point to the US state of California which, In My Opinion, has become a very undesirable state of residence. This has taken years to deteriorate and there have been many warning signs. I made my own exodus from California almost two decades ago, partly because of the situation in that state, where living conditions have only gotten worse. Look at your own location. Read the article and ask yourself if you are better off where you live now, or do you need to "pull the trigger" and activate your escape plan?
