Four places you will NOT want to be after a EMP and/or Solar flare storm.

1. Airplane or Helicopter
2. Cruise ship or any ship far out at sea
3. Elevator
4. Far away from home like in another State

All these reasons are why I stay close to home or within walking distance. The likelyhood of Russia sending an emp over USA is far greater now than ever before because of all the sanctions we imposed on them hurting their economy even more. Also with Crude oil prices so low now. Remember what Japan did after we imposed sanctions on them? They attacked us at Pearl Harbor. What did we do to end that war with Japan? We dropped "2" Atom bombs. 1 over Hiroshima, and 1 over Nagasaki. Also remember that history is always deemed to repeat itself.

MODIFIED :)
1. Airplane or Helicopter or standing underneath them
2. Cruise ship or any ship far out at sea or in a Brit or US flagged vessel off the coast of Iran or North Korea
3. Elevator or Maglev train doing 200MPH
4. Far away from home like in another State or some place where the natives are still primitive and eat intruders like Galveston
5. Having open heart or brain surgery
6. In a FAIL SECURE building rather than a fail safe one

also in a modern car that has electronics, after an EMP the highways will be littered with abandoned vehicles.
Yeah, and to give a good example of that...

Houston Texas a few years ago when that hurricane/T.S was on it's way there. I remember my aunt saying it took them like 6 hours to go 1 mile. She said people were abandoning their cars, from being out of gas, or running hot, lines were backed up for miles (literally) at the gas stations, and more recently in Atlanta after that snow storm hit. I basically live on an island (Wilmington about 7 miles from Carolina Beach). My sister, and brother in law does live on an island (Carolina Beach). They have 1 bridge to get to where I am that is only 2 lines wide. We have 2 bridges to get to the mainland which is Cape Fear bridge, can't remember the name of the other. Again only 2 lanes to get off the island. The newer bridge is further away, but is also only 2 lanes wide to get off this island. I am NOT going anywhere when shtf. Once it calms down, then I will. The reason I am glad I am where I am is because we have endless supply of salt water to boil to make fresh drinkable water.

I've often thought an island would be safer, but even that didn't stop the Vikings. ;)

There was a well documented in depth report from a survivalist family and how they PLANNED to bug out from H Andrew I think it was and what REALLY happened.

They had a suitable vehicle, everyone had bug out bags, they had emergency supplies and food / water etc in their vehicle and reckoned they were fully capable of cruising to Texas on the kit they had. BUT they left slightly late IIRC an got tangled up in the masses of fleeing traffic, they ended up some 14 hours later stranded at the side of the road in Georgia. OUT OF FUEL. Yet they had set off with a full tank and multiple jerry cans of fuel, more than enough to do the journey normally.

But the total traffic chaos on the roads saw them crawling along at 5 mph for 14 hours, they used ALL of their fuel reserves before they had covered half way to their destination. ( He also reported all the gas stations were closed or dry)

We have to learn to NOT use the same routes as sheeple, we have to learn that Automatic transmission wastes 18% more fuel than stick shift, we have to learn that Air Con uses another 12% and crawling along in low gear eats just as much fuel as blasting along at 80.

The vehicle issue is one of the very few things I totally disagree with my American peers with, huge great gas guzzling, air con automatic transmission vehicles are NOT the best choice unless you can pull a tanker of fuel with you. We have large manual transmission 4x4s SUVs over here than can do nearly 60 MPG at steady speeds, 45mpg is common.
