Some folks say they will remain in the city because that is where law and order will last the longest.
Police/1st responders are human. When SHTF they will take care of their families.
I really live in the boonies. It is 19 miles to the nearest town (approx. 11k people) but I have a lake and back up to a river. Deer, hogs, armadillos, fresh water oysters, edible plants etc are all around me.
When Wal-Mart runs out of food in the city you are screwed!
