If the meltdown happens soon then I'll stay right where I am. My home is alright and I'm in a small city with everything I need. I don't see any reason to move if things start melting.

Your opinions? Assuming we don't suffer through wholesale societal collapse, of course.
The Midwest will remain stable as well, we haven't seen any (or much) job loss here yet, sounds just like how you described the south. I think the West and the North East will be the hardest hit.

Wherever I can roam the urban wastelands and highways in my custom-modified sports car, looking for petrol to keep the engine burning, or driving the 18-wheeler tanker full of sand to get the mohawk punks to chase me.
