Possible bug-out locations I'm considering are Ireland, Scotland, and Isreal. I can't get into the religious and political reasons.

If you haven’t read the _Under a Graveyard Sky_ series by John Ringo, it’s a somewhat dark but entertaining look at a modern day zombie apocalypse with the main characters being a family of four who were ready for it and bug out via sailboat. While entirely fictional, the first book in the series contains a description of what you would need to do to be ready for a sailboat bug out.

Here is a site with basic info. Much of this has been around since the 1950s: https://www.ready.gov/nuclear-explosion

A lot is going to be dumb luck, since you can't necessarily determine your distance from a misdirected or erratic missile. Get upwind and under cover.the more the better.

Going abroad might help, but since wind and water currents don't respect political boundaries, bad things will circulate across most of the planet..

There is talk of manned exploration of Mars by 2030. Any takers?

Having information on potential targets does help. The three possible targets in Florida are Miami, Tampa, and Pensacola.

Also, we are dealing with suitcase nukes, concealed with heavy water, to avoid detection, not missiles.

I got the information from religious sources.
