Japan Fall out Bug Out...but to where???

Japan Fall out Bug Out...but to where???

A real question, not a wind up

IF the fallout was a real problem coming on the jetstream
-hitting the west coast first, then on to east coast
-IMHO the government would not bother to give us a heads up, as there is nothing to do

Therefore:
- the stuff is in the air and eventually the water

Bug out solution:
but where?
cant go underground
desert- not good open air
mountains - still a problem in the air
maybe on the opposite side of a mountain range?
but then would the fallout not "pocket" down on the low side you were bugged out to?

Canada - still in the air
Mexico - same problem

Anyone have a viable solution?

Not to mention that i live 6 miles from San Onofre
which was built for a 7.0 quake....and on a fault and Japan was a 9.0 quake...

Re: Japan Fall out Bug Out...but to where???

Distance, you're already, what, 5000 miles from Japan, so going another 2000 over the Rockies wouldn't be insignificant. Once it comes over the Rockies, I'd guess that it's down to chance- meaning Indiana is not necessarily better than Eastern Colorado.

Second, clean water from icemelt up high- icemelt that predates the Japan disaster for the time being (Bug-Out not a long term solution)

Last, timing, leave about a week ago since radiation has already hit California.

Re: Japan Fall out Bug Out...but to where???

Currently you get more radiation from the sun. Not to say that won't change if it gets worse? Where to go??? it all depends on the winds and jet stream. No where to hide really. You can get some potassium iodate tablets off ebay which will help prevent thyroid cancer. Currently all our local health stores are sold out of it here in Seattle. Their supply sold out on the first day within 4-5 hours. I have even checked places like Amazon and a lot of their stock is sold out too. Also they have raised prices a lot. What used to be 8.50 is now selling for 50.00 + (some have even gone up to $499 regularly $8 price gouging (fear))

I am not a fan of radiation personally since I have refused CT scans in the past for this reason. I have heard the time it takes to get to the US the radiation is in trace amounts. Hopefully this is in fact the case.

If things are really bad, there won't be a place to go that is 'safe'. As we learned from Chernobyl, once the bad stuff gets into the upper atmosphere (20K+ altitude), it goes where ever the wind wants.....and that is highly unpredictable.

But you can relax.

The level of journalistic incompetence and factual misrepresentation on display around the Japan nuclear situation has been stunning.

Since I live in Las Vegas we are used to the radiation. You know what they say: "As Vegas glows; so glows the world." And the radiation obviously doesn't effect the behavior of anyone who comes and visits here. Everyone is perfectly normal here in the casinos, nightclubs, bars and strip joints. So, my advice, if you are afraid of the radiation from Japan, come to Vegas!

Nope! Spent all of the royalty money from my books, so I am through buying stuff for awhile. And, with gas prices the way they are, I was thinking it's time to park the Sportsmobile and ride the motorscooter instead.
