Offerman doesn't think "Ron" "would necessarily notice" panic

Offerman was candid when it came to sharing his thoughts on how Pawnee's resident survivalist would be coping with things as they are at present. "I don't think he would necessarily notice," Offerman admitted, which could very well be true given "Ron's" aversion to technology. Then, he went on to say what his character would do if he did find out.

"But if he did, "Leslie" would probably send him a missive or some sort of message and he’d just take his family to one of his cabins in the woods where he was heading anyway," Offerman shared, "and they would just enjoy some fishing and some items from his garden until things blew over".

Of course, Parks and Rec fans know the "Leslie" that Offerman referred to is Amy Poehler's character from the show, "Leslie Knope". The optimistic protagonist of Parks and Rec as well as friend and foil to "Ron", it makes sense that Offerman thinks "Leslie" would be the one to inform "Ron" what was happening! And once he did find out, Offerman says, he'd be completely ready to deal with things. "When the s**t goes down, Ron is all set up," he quipped.
