Drains. Yep, road drains.

DuckDuckGo "draining," it's really cool. It seams like a great place to go when things get rough.

Im more of the Sherwood forrest line of thought. I can hunt, farm and collect/clean enough water for a small band. I know the NH woods better than most. Could I evade a hunting military? That remains to be seen. The drains or the woods, hiding is a very limited time line when the SHTF. The day of fighting back will eventually come if hiding becomes a viable option.

If it ever becomes open season on political dissidents, which I suspect will happen when the currency goes bust, the safest place to hide will be other countries.  The practical demands of getting there is a whole new set of problems though.  Problems I am not likely to overcome.

Borders are porous. Canada or Mexico, whichever is closer for you. Flying will be almost impossible.

Certainly.  I would have to leave before SHTF though, since traveling from Florida to Mexico would be difficult in a shtf scenario.  Although, I hope we have long enough where I can just stay in the Free Republic of New Hampshire when it happens.

How about rafting from Florida to Cuba? Will be interesting to see if there is a reverse flux of that sort!

I think in general, regardless of where you would want to be when shtf, the best situation is to get out beforehand if possible. However, we have the normalcy bias and few people would actually have the nerve to pick up and leave, abandoning their jobs, on the suspicion that it was indeed going through the fan. I think most people, including myself, won't act in time. You need to have supplies to last a month or two and then get moving once the initial panic subsides, assuming you don't live in your ideal place already.

All of this prepping stuff is easier said than done though.

Yeah, that is the truth.  Although, since I live in a very rural area and there isn't any large population centers within a week's walk, my plan is to simply have enough to wait it out. 

I doubt there will be much of a Golden Horde as I think the majority of people will wait for the government to come help them.  Once it becomes apparent that little help is coming, they'll be too weak to strike out into the countryside, especially if it is the middle of summer or winter.

Biggest danger I see is from local law enforcement going door to door confiscating supplies 'in the name of the law' and maybe some local national guard (the ones who aren't deployed to the metro areas to protect vital government interests), but that should be pretty easy to evade, especially if fuel is in shortage.

Well, all very interesting. But back to drains. It's a ton of fun. In my neighborhood the pipes are only about four feet tall, but they go all over. It's funny to pop out of a drain and imagine someone in one of the houses see you emerge.

No drains here in the country, although we have culverts, which I would use as a cool road crossing tunnel when I was a kid =)

What purpose do you think the drains would serve if things got really bad? Is it for movement, or hiding?

Both. Although one bummer is when everything gets washed away when it rains, unless you could temporarily plug up a spot in the line so the water would exit a different way.

I find drain exploration a fun recreational sport too. Also a way of defying the state's claim to the drains as off-limit public property.

Are you talking about those 6" culverts, or bigger? Because when I lived in the mountains they were always about 6".
