This is funny!

For this to play out like you first stated it would also involve the complete and total collapse of the federal, state and local governments.

Then all those city folks would have to leave instead of waiting for some to come and help them, like so many did on the east coast just after Sandy hit.

The natural instinct is to head toward a safer place with easy living the northern hemisphere that means south.

So your numbers are a bit off. 1. of 300K 100K are just dead. Another 100K stay put crying for help and the other 100K turns first on them. So now you have 100K that can go out and forage.......OPPS, most of em would have no idea how to do that.

Now again your numbers are goofy. 50 miles in a day? You have to be joking! At the end of basic training we had to do a 30 mile forced march. That was with a full ruck, weapon and all the battle rattle. Guys the weighed in at 150 were carrying over 1/2 of their body weight. Now in the Army a forced march is 6MPH with a 5 minute break every 2 hours. I don't think that most of us could have gone another 5 blocks at the end let alone another 20 miles. ANd at the end of basic we were in great shape! These survivors are going to have to carry everything they need plus spend time looking for food. They will turn on each other in a het beat, average 10-12 miles a day on good days and in a week be undernurished. The sick, lame and lazy are just going to be left behind. Most would not make the 50 miles. Most of the ones who are armed have no real skill with a weapon and will be armed with hand guns.

Now if you are going to run and hide and have no pre set up and stocked position you too will be packing the things with you that are needed to survive. So you too will be moving slow. Now add in that as you move the people in the area you are moving into are going to treat you as a threat.

So your beat bet is to set tight and protect whats yours.
