If SHTF and the cities were dangerous my wife would weight me down.
Sorry but most people would weight me down.
Survival of the fittest.
I ran away from home often as a child and once i made it 2 weeks in the woods by myself.
I ate an under cooked snapping turtle and got salmonella.
I should have stuck with small fish and crawfish and easy to cook frogs.
I lived in a hole in the ground i dug with a big stainless spoon.
I did not move from the hole during the day as there were people looking for me.
I had a trap door I made over the hole that looked like the rest of the under brush.
I was a trap door spider.
Wash clothes in the small creek where I got my food and water and wear them until dry.
I did not poop much because I did not eat much and did not expel much energy.
I had no plan on where to go from there and I did not have a gun or weapon other than my pocket knife.
Under ground would be the best place to live as you would not need to burn wood to keep warm.
Small fires to cook food only.
Crop would need to be Amaranth which is a grain very high in protein and you can eat the leaves.
It grows wild in many US states, many different varieties, it can be grown and look like weeds to the unknowing.
Look it up. Amaranth see what you think.
amaranth is pigweed. i grew up eating pigweed,poke,lambsquarter,sand plumbs turnips and the tops etc etc. problem is winter
