Home Forums General Discussion In an Emergency, country or city? Re: In an Emergency, country or city?


Two tank fuls of gas. Hmmmm? I drive a conventional Ford pick up truck it comes standard with dual fuel tanks. This allows me to drive 700 kilometer before needing a fill up. Draw a circle radius of 700 kilometers around any urban center of population 10,000 or greater. Doesn’t leave much area left over outside the circles.

Country folks tend to be accustomerd to winter storms blocking roads so they more often than not tend to have a couple of weeks if not months supply of food staples on hand. I cannot think of any of my city dwelling friends having a months supply of food stored on hand just in case. Having lived in both city and country I am imclined to vote country as a better place to be if all hell breaks loose.
