what's happening in urban areas?

Roving bands of cannibals.

Nah on a serious note, most cities only have 2 weeks of non-panic-horded food.

People would get hungry fast.

Also looters, etc

why would that happen?

Nuclear facities needs constatant maintenance. If nuclear reactors overheat, they will go boom. They cannot be unsupervised.

My folks have 100+ acres in Rural Eastern NC.

Lots of wild game and pig farms/farm land.

No food? People will eat people. Back in USSR during great blocked by Germans... When Towns ran out of food, family members ate each other.

so you're preparing for a siege? gonna be hard to get out of a city if the germans are outside.

I agree.

I have a buddy that wanted a Home Defense gun.

I told him to get a Mossberg500 or a Remy 870.

He bought a 900$ AR-15....

Then he bought a SAIGA

Now he wants another AR-15.

I told him the other day I prayed he never gets robbed because he will murder his entire family shooting through his drywall walls trying to hit the robber.

I'm keeping it simple, 9mm handgun, .22 rifle, 12G shotty.

reading this reminded me of this book I read...it's really good..he's ex military so he knows his poo when it comes to guns...it also just so happens that his wife is in my drunken book club..so we all read it one month and critiqued him on it..I'm now reading the second book in the series

I never refer to my gear as "survival" or "prepper" gear; its all primitive camping gear.

I'm curious about this map... maps are kinda my thing...

One thing I notice right off is that there are two marks right near me in ILM. Now we do have the Brunswick Nuke Plant right across the river here, but not sure what the other mark is for? Maybe the GE plant in Castle Hayne? They have nuke facilities but no reactor that I'm aware of.

The Southport Plant has two "units". They couldn't put them right on top of each other as you wouldn't be able to discern that there were two there. Similarly there are three at the Greenville SC plant, and two at the Charlotte plant, which is why it's all a huge jumble fug right there.

Yeah, I guess... in other words, shitty map making.

Would have been much better to color code multi-reactors vs single reactors.
