Re: Stay in city or attempt the wilderness?

A few more quick hit thoughts: 1) Take up urban vegetable gardening; even if you have to do container gardening. 2) Own a good bike; maybe a hybrid or HD tourer with front and rear racks. 3) Nota bene: https://www.youtube.com/user/TheUrbanPrepper , https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCmb2QRAjdnkse21Ctx...
