While watching Doomsday Preppers last week, I observed one major difference in the various plans, and that was if the plan included access to land and water.
Its one thing to stockpile 2 3 years of canned goods, food in mylar bags, freeze dried food, have a rainwater collection system, small backyard garden,,,,.
Its another thing to have access to several acres of land, able to have chickens, a nice sized garden for a variety of fresh veggies, various types of fruit trees, access to fresh running water and access to land to hunt on. Maybe even have access to water to fish in.
Two of the main differences I see between the various long term SHTF survival plans, is access to fresh food and access to fresh water. People may argue there are lots of other differences, but for this article I wanted to talk about two main topics water and fresh food.

Stuck here in Minnesota, there's too many months out of the year that snakes are hard to come by, and even in the summer they're small enough that I'd probably burn more calories cleaning them than I'd get from the meal.
Plenty of fish in the lake to eat though.
Does anybody use the word "vegetable" anymore?
And that’s the one thing I really need, but with things the way they are right now (financially) I don’t have the money to dig a well nor can I afford the manual pump....
This is the one thing that really weighs on my mind.
I do, but send you complaint to those who don’t, like the writer of the article.
