...the National Park Service has been completely shut down and your only safe haven is in one of the National Parks. Which one do you choose?

I refuse to answer another one of your random questions, unless you explain why you are asking them!

Because I'm a fugitive on the run and I need your advice.


Ok, just kidding. It is just for fun. No real reason.


Good enough?

You missed National Park of American Samoa. Seems like a good place to get lost.

Oh, I didn't forget it. There are 57 National Parks. The 10 I listed are your only choices for this poll though. If you have one you'd prefer than one I listed, still vote and then leave a message stating the one you'd prefer.

I'm leaning toward the remote western edge of grand canyon.

Definitley not Smoky Mountains! Its the most visited!

Glacier would be good...but hard to survive..too cold. Everglades too dangerous and too close to heavy popluation. Death Valley too hot.

Yosemite might be good...

personally I enjoy this question!

True, but Eric Rudolph was able to hide out for years in the Smoky Mountains without being caught. Sometimes its better to hide in plain sight.

I went with the Smoky Mountains- lived up there for a few years & I loved it.

I would choose Death Valley. Areas there that man has maybe never set foot on. Western Grand Canyon was mentioned. That would be my second choice. In reality, Denali would probably be the hardest to locate someone.

Yeah, they haven't stepped foot on it for a reason. It is one of the harshest environments in the world. You would last more than a week out there. You'd die of thirst and exposure.
