...I would align with the Boulder consortium and might need some help but could probably grub my way along providing I have enough ammo...
I got you covered on ammo amigo. I'll meet you in Kansas City. We'll head west yelling "Yippe Ki Yay MF!" Bring the Jeep, you drive, I'll

Post-apocalyptic scenarios always fascinate me- it would be so quiet and peaceful compared to the insanity of modern "civilization". Assuming I survived, I'd probably become migratory, following the seasons to avoid harsh winters or summer heat and gradually learning to live off the land without modern conveniences like electricity (there'd be enough preserved food and other supplies to last a bit while I perfected my survival skills.) If the few people (relatively speaking) that I care about had succumbed to the flu, I'm not sure I'd want to rejoin other human survivors- I'd miss the dogs and horses more!

1. Flagg's camp appeals to me for several reasons, but I'd probably end up in Boulder because the community would be more intimate.

2. I could survive the scenario easily enough - as long as certain medications could still be found. Once they were all gone, I wouldn't last long.
1.) Why does Flagg's group appeal to you?
He intimidated his followers, turned them against one another and even had some crucified.

2.) Medicine would be crucial but don't forget situations like
someone needing surgery. Remember the guy whose appendix burst? And what about the absence of police? Remember when Stu, Frannie and Harold were ambushed by a gang of gunmen? It's every man for himself.
