35. I am so incredibly, deeply torn.
I'm 100% convinced that the shit will hit the fan in a big way in the next decade or two.
I'm also determined to move back east to Louisiana within the next 3 years.. but I don't know where.

There are two options:
Option A: a house in New Orleans, along/near the street car line; or,
Option B: a homestead in rural Louisiana, where I'd be forced to commute to work (20-30 miles or so)

The City Option would have me very close to work (I'm a CT/MRI Technologist), but when TSHTF it will probably be a more dangerous place to be.

The Country Option would have me spending more money on commuting, but I'd have much more space with which to garden and raise chickens(which I LOVE!), and I'd feel safer there. We'd also be much less dependent-upon others out in the country, being able to draw well water and generate solar energy more easily.

One day I'm hearing the Mardi Gras parade music playing in my head, and the next day I'm hearing the sounds of the forest. I'm torn.
