Seriously? Head into the woods? What do you think will happen when all the cities start vomiting people into the sticks?
They do now... lol Its kinda funny watching it happen unless it happens in your area.

Liberal-Socialists types can't understand simply taking care of yourself because they lack resources in the rural areas.

Pretty sure he was suggesting a move of residence to such a place well ahead of any disaster scenario.
Not a last minute mass exodus out of the city once the disaster comes. We all agree that's a bad plan.
Depending on the situation for SHTF the better plan might be to move to a city. Either way, the culture shock blows most peoples minds. I covered this in Poorman's Guide to Prepping where in economic downturns many people in rural America went to cities for work and sent money home to rural family members.

Not super worried about that. Most city people would urinate themselves just thinking about being somewhere where there aren't any street lights.
Many do but, many also vacation in rural areas and will fall back to those places as BOLs. It all depends on the individual, last thing you want in a rural area is a bunch entitled emo-kids in skinny jeans, carrying Antifa patches and trying to redistribution the wealth. That combined with criminal elements present a security risk that shouldn't be ignored... IMHO

If people like that have vacation homes, it's probably just a rural area and not the sticks. Tourist areas are pretty much small cities already, at least in the summer. I'm an outfitter, and I have learned how to tailor trips for city people so that they still have their bright lights and avocados but can tell their friends back home that they were roughing it out in the wilderness. If you can't see these people's camp five miles away in the dark, they want more light.

Perhaps... but, I expect quite a few to clash with locals. We have plenty of similar places in WV and, not whole small towns that cater to tourists in the Summer or Winter months.

If there still is a working government effort, cities get relieve first while roads to rural areas become impassable easier. Look at hurricane Maria where the mountains got aid last due to land slides. If it were not for the natural spring water more people would have died because there was no way to drop water bottles off. Not even by air because of the wind.

True but I expect a more economic collapse then a natural on a national level. Its a trade off... Out here the state doesn't have to do much and logging companies and coal mines, scrape the roads to keep the trucks moving and get a kickback from the state for doing it. So rural communities have beet roads outside of town then cities or towns. Smaller towns just write a check to those companies anyway...

When the 2010 flood hit, the government never got out into the actual sticks. I received a reverse 911 that directed us who to call or where to go if we needed any help, but there was no direct contact. The National Guard helped out in the village, but we were on our own.
