    Good points Lonewolf. Too many don't have a clue about the area they work and / or live in.

    if you go somewhere regularly like commuting, if you can vary your route, go different ways, some people may notice you if you only go one route and they could be planning a mugging/street robbery. just a thought.

    Pattern and predictability is not a good situation. Learn different routs, travel at different times and learn about the different traffic patterns you could encounter. Yes, paranoia does strikes deep with me but then again, I am not surprised very often either. Fair trade.

    those with their heads in the sand are surprised by EVERYTHING, paranoids are surprised by nothing, being paranoid is useful to survival.

    Certainly sound advice. I didn't see any reference to how large an area this would be. What would you consider " your location "? A 5 mile radius? 10-20-50 mile radius? I imagine part would depend on whether you are in an Urban; Suburban; or Rural location. How far afield should you explore?

    probably be different for each person and each location, also different PRE SHTF and POST SHTF.
    here in Britain and for me personally, I would say, maybe 20 miles pre SHTF and maybe 2 to a maximum of 5 miles post SHTF.

    Here in the BC mountains I try to learn the area and routes for a 50 km radius. I have escape routes in this area that differ depending on the season or natural disaster occurring. Examples: bad flood year avoid routes with low bridges or slide zones near rivers. Bad fire season use routes that have multiple escape directions.

    In this 50km radius I learn my safe water and food sources.
