I agree that it would be easier all in one place, network effects and 
all that, and if they were serious about natural disasters they'd have 
landed a couple of ships to use for shelters and/or emergency 
evacuation.  But it's not fair to say the ending is logistically dumb 
when the ubiquitous cigarettes and good grooming would imply they had 
entire ships full of cigarettes and hair-care products along for the 
ride all along.
