When the guy was talking about sneaking in and out for supplies, I don't think he meant that he went to downtown Atlanta specifically for supplies.
I was thinking that they had gone downtown at the beginning of the outbreak, when there weren't as many zombies, because the feds were telling people there was a safe zone there. As the outbreak continued to spiral out of control, they found themselves stuck there. And he was sneaking into other buildings trying to find supplies, but for whatever reason didn't think that he could make it out of downtown.
