Easily stated, where do you think will be the best place to live in the United States when the shit hits the fan. I understand most of probably don't live where we think would be the most ideal location due to having family members nearby and employment opportunities.
Northeastern - for the most part the northeast is very crowded it seems. I'm aware that there is lots of rural areas for example I'm told upstate New York has a beautiful countryside and large deer compared to the deer we have here in Texas. But the overall population density would concern me and its also very cold in the Northeast so I'd never make it.
Mid-Atlantic - Has some nicer weather but and I think you'll get a good change of climate with each season. I lived in North Carolina for about 4 years as a child and we lived in more rural area and I visited some extremely rural areas. But areas in Virginia and close to Washington D.C. seem to have the same population density problems you'd find in the northeast.
Mid-South - Not even sure what all areas are considered mid-south but I think it includes Missouri, Arkansas, Kentucky and Tennessee all of which I believe are on the new Madrid fault line.
Southeastern - Some really good rural areas here but the only disadvantage I can think is the southeastern US tends to have lots of severe weather tornadoes and hurricanes.
Great Plains - Probably one of the most ideal regions in the United States for farming but a good portion of the Great Plains are in or nearby the famous tornado alley.
Southwestern - I think this would include places like Texas, New Mexico, and Arizona all of which are known for being home to freedom loving Americans. I live in coastal Texas and would prefer the more central Texas area but employment reasoning is the main reason I choose to live where I do. With exception to the coastal areas (very humid) most of this region is very hot and dry. Wildfires and drought are very common problems and a good portion of Texas is also in or near tornado alley. Also recently along the Mexico border areas illegal immigration and violence from drug cartels have been a major issue.
West Coast - Earthquakes anybody? California especially just seems to have way too many problems to me, they have earthquakes, wildfires and mudslides. If I had to live on the west coast I'd probably go further north towards Oregon. And its also my understanding that the west coast has been one of the hardest hit areas in regards to the economic crisis.
