    Do you think you could survive in the deep woods with no outside supply for long?

    You're supplies with you will only last so long if you bugout with them. Then what? Do you have the skills? Is there enough food you know how to obtain to survive from? You're not going to be alone if shtf to drive people towards the woods, unless you keep going away from civilization which is getting harder to do. Farming takes supplies, tools, hard and time. Can you survive?

    That is one of the things I love about where I live.
    Alabama has an abundance of food, from small game to fish to bugs to edible "weeds" to decent dirt for planting.

    Yup, I am certain I can survive in the woods. Heck, my people ain't long out off the land. My father is the first generation to have a job.

    I'm down in the south myself and raised in the outdoors fishing, hunting, hiking, boating and camping. The swamp areas of the south are actually teaming with life still, but most people aren't willing to live in the swamps. Which is fine because that makes more for the rest of us who are.

    Speaking of swamps, a lot of your critters are moving up north. Lake Eufaula, for example, is now teeming with alligators. The lakes and rivers around now have future boots in them.
    Just another thing to put on the list for munchies. Or, being munched, I suppose.

    I love gator tail, yum. There's the new problem of privately owned snakes owners no longer wanting and released into the wild taking over too. When the shtf I'd say it may be plus possibly as snake is quite tasty. Catching them can be tricky though. And the bigger they, the more likely they may make a meal of you too I'd say.

    Exactly. I was born and raised in NC. I've lived in the swamps along the coast most of my life. I've also lived in NE Ohio. Both extremes provide everything you need to not only survive but thrive if you're smart enough to find them.

    A lot of the south is covered in Kudzu now too which is a great food source. I wonder how long it would last when people start living on it, but there is a lot of it and it grows like wildfire.

    A delicacy in Japan, I hear.

    I read somewhere that dying of starvation in the woods is like doing so in a restaurant.
