I'm attracted to island survivalism in the Great Lakes due to the large amount of fresh water available and the geographic isolation you would find. Would the general rules of Survivalism change much in an island setting? The islands that I've visited are very warm in the summers and due to the Lake Effect manage to have warmer winters than the mainlands. You would be able to grow a lot of food on your own, and populated islands tend to be self-sufficient in terms of energy. Opinions?
