“Being prepared for war is the most effective way of reaching peace.”
A list of locations that will be untouched by nuclear strikes and should be relatively safe from any radiation. It took several hours to research all these states for locations with the highest chance of survival.
If your state isn’t listed, sorry, but we weren’t able to find any locations that would be safe from nuclear strikes or radiation.
CALIFORNIA: (North) Crescent City, (Mid) King City, (South) Lake Morena County Park
NEW MEXICO: Truth or Consequences (stay the hell away from Spaceport America)
OREGON: 50 Miles away from Portland (Eugene and Medford as well to be on the safe side)
IDAHO: Anywhere near the Oregon border, DON’T go near BOISE
WASHINGTON: Olympic Peninsula Forests, or anywhere west of Mt. Olympus
ARIZONA: (Mid) Kaibab National Forest Headquarters [Ivestigate Flagstaff 24 hours after bombs fall to migrate], (North) Jacob Lake, (South) Ajo Station near Why; be prepared for the inevitable Mexico migration to reach Puerto Penasco for ocean resources
WYOMING: Jackson (expect slight radiation from wind currents)
S DAKOTA: Buffalo (expect slight radiation from wind currents)
MAINE: Eustis (had to consider Canadian targets for this one)
NEVADA: Not many strikes expected, but California’s radiation will hit hard. Best bet would be to move to closest safe zone in another state or to Sheldon National Antelope Refuge.
TEXAS: Far west Texas; Big Bend National Park (Rio Grande is crucial for long term survival, don’t veer too far), Don’t go to El Paso
ALASKA: Stay 50 miles away from Anchorage and the oil pipelines.
SAN FELIPE, MEXICO: My location near the sea peninsula. Small fishing town full of mostly American retirees.
If you go to Mexico, meet me at 30°55′49″N 114°48′59″W
If you have a private plane and wish to land, the airband frequency is 118.5 MHz
If by the ocean, best bet would be to steal a boat or a plane, and head towards the south Atlantic.
MUST-HAVE SURVIVAL GEAR
– 2.5 liters of water
– Life Straw or similar filter system
– 4000 calories worth of food

– Flashlight with new batteries (along with extra batteries)
– Radio (hand-crank preferred)
– 4 Bic lighters
– Heavy duty outdoor knife (carry small sharpener)
– 25 feet of Paracord
– Hand Soap
– First-Aid Kit: Must include; disinfectant for cuts, gauze for bandaging, painkillers, iodine pills, and antibiotics)
– Handgun with 100 rounds minimum
REACTING TO A NUCLEAR ATTACK
There won’t be a warning, EAS and CMAS will not notify you until it is too late, so DO NOT RELY on the government to warn you of a strike.
The only way to know if Nuclear Exchange is close is it to monitor the on-going situation through various international media sources.
If a standoff between US/Russia occurs and ultimatums are given, that would be the time you “take a small vacation” out of town, and wait out the situation for a few days to see if it de-escalates.
Stock up your car with enough food & water for 3 months, and don’t drink for the first day. Take iodine pills as soon as you’re aware of nukes taking off.
Q: But what if I can’t reach the safe zones or if nukes are minutes away?
A: If you’re not able to drive to the safe zones, drive away from any heavily populated and strategically important areas (at least 40 miles), and hope for the best. If you’re caught off guard and are located in a strike zone, take cover inside a sewer or storm drain.
Safety Tips for Nuclear Impact
Before impact sit down and rest your head in your knees closing your eyes and plugging your ears with your fingers. Keep your mouth open, so internal pressures have a way to escape and prevent barotrauma.
DON’T LOOK AT THE FUCKING FLASH
Wait in your shelter for 20 minutes to be sure no second strike occurs, then decide if you want to leave or wait out the radiation.
