This will be the start of a long process, I will start “conditioning” dad and mom for a possible bug-out and
by the time it is getting close, they will prolly be saying “Isn’t it about time to BUG OUT?”

Thanks so much , hope to get to know you all much Better!

It is best if can be long process because it need time to get everything in line, just remember to give them some role in everything. Everyone have some value.

About rural vs urban, I am simply talking from the point of my experience, and my thinking how it is gonna be again. Remember that I too survived in urban area, in very dense populated area actually. So it is possible of course.

But it is simply thing about too many people and not enough resources.
And it depends of what kind of SHTF we are talking, full scale or something different.
