12 Places To Go If The World Goes To Hell



Joe Weisenthal and John Carney | Sep. 11, 2010, 8:27 AM


War, oil shortages, global warming, nuclear bombs, and economic collapse... All of it seems unlikely, but don't you want to be prepared?

If you have to jump on a plane (or a boat or a train or a hot air balloon) and head for safety, you want to know where in the world you should go.

We've selected places that we expect will remain fortresses of stability, safety, and prosperity no matter what the world throws at it.

Rio de Janero...

I really wish they didn't have Denver in the story.

Too many liberal fools here as-is. The last thing we need is an influx of people who can't stand their ground or take responsibility for their survival (i.e. Democrats).

Rio de Janero...


It says its already "Post Apocolyptic". Sounds like a good place to train!

GUAM?

...because of it's large US Military presence.

If the world goes to hell...you do NOT want to be by ANY large military presence...'cuz they are NOT gonna be getting paid.

Yeah that's realistic.

Well whatever those twelve places are, they're going to crowded real fast now, making them unideal for going there

I am going with the plan you stated, although I am holding out hope that the world doesn't go to hell in mine, or my children's, lifetime.

or after a couple weeks when the food runs out, or the coal for electricity, or the water plant. That island is totally dependent on outside supplies for survival.

Guam would be chocked full of zombies

It's a clever ruse to eliminate those "undesireables" who will follow it when the SHTF.

Yeah, venture up to Yukon, you'll be fine... *snicker*. Cold? No, it's nice up there... Have fun!

Which reminds me...

I need to write the Governor of Wyoming to see about putting retractable spike strips on all roads leading into Wyoming...especially I-25.
Link Posted: 9/12/2010 10:55:47 AM EDT
Cape Town and Rio are practically warzones aren't they?

Isn't Guam pretty much Asia's toilet with USMil base in the middle of it?

Indonesia is currently having Muslim versus everyone else conflicts right now IIRC?

Isn't Denver the back-up/fallback capitol?

The list leaves a lot to be desired.

What's your backup plan?

Yeah, if the world goes to hell good luck getting on a plane and going anywhere.

Depends on why the world is going to hell, if Yellowstone pops Wyoming will cease to exist.

As long as it keeps liberals and Coloradans out, I prefer that option.

if America goes to shit 3rd world countries will look relatively stable in comparison.

So, when TSHF you should head for an excessively populated city? You know, one that has at most 3 days worth of food and water on hand for not even a third of the population? This article = FAIL of the highest order

I always hear people mention Alaska in a shtf scenario. Ha!

Go to Paraguay....sparsely populated, good soil, weak central gov, hot chicks

Kinda thinking that some of those are kinda bunk. Rio? Seriously is living in a shithole now a preferred place because it knows the ins and outs of shitholedom?
Link Posted: 9/12/2010 11:55:31 AM EDT
Since I am not sheeple I have no desire to live anywhere near a populated area because if the SHTF you are going to have problems, were it to happen I am calling into work and telling them to FOAD and then I plan to SIP. looters and rioters would have to travel a long way to my home. I have everything I need here for long term survival.

Prefer death to evacuation, that is a choice.

It will be especially shitty after you've been under siege for about three months, living on rats and sawdust bread and sometimes each other. At least it won't be dark when the pyres for the dead light up the sky. It'll be kinda medieval.
