Where should preppers live?

7:22 PM

When it comes to prepping, one of the biggest questions that people have is, "Where should I live?"

Now, I write a lot about urban survival and how to prep when you live in the city. This is because for some people, city life is something they can't escape. No, not because you can't live without the theatre, but because you live in the city for a specific reason, such as a contract job or medical condition that requires you to be close.

I get it.

But if you have a choice - and most people who choose the city life are not under military obligations or dealing with a prolonged medical concern - there's no question that it's best to live in lower-populated areas.

One of the simplest reasons?

People in large groups are stupid.

If you find yourself in an economic collapse type of situation, do you really think you're going to be able to get out of the city? Hell, I can't even get across town during lunch hour. Will I really be able to get out during the end-of-the-world?

Probably not.

If you can do it, leave the city. You don't need the pollution, the bad attitudes, or the fast food restaurants.

You'll be okay.

I promise.

And yes, you can have Wi-Fi in rural areas.

Sometimes, anyway.

The blog No Zombies Aloud has quite a collection of "Where to Live" posts that I would highly recommend you read if you've been thinking about relocating to a better, less-populated area. (And yes, less-populated generally means better.)
