Default Bugout property in NCA



Advertise Here

Anyone interested in getting together and buying a bugout property? I have found several likely spots but paying for it ourselves would be really pushing it.

I'm thinking two or three other couples at $15-$20K each.

Something like this;

Do you have anyone interested yet? Did I see some apple trees in your Zillow example?

This is a horrible idea. Never buy anything with people other then a spouse.

I would buy that if it was somewhere other then California. Land in my area is going for 25-40k an acre. That’s a bargain.

I hadn't noticed, but apple trees would be good in that area and a year round spring is a major plus.

The area where it is located is remote and in a decent county, only 178,000 total population.

Your idea of remote is VERY different from mine...

My county has about 21,000 people, for instance. 6.4 people per square mile, vs 46/sq. mi. for Shasta county.

Pretty country though, I was born just north west of there, my brother was born in Redding, and it has a lot going for it ...of course, everyone in that large valley south of that, toward the capitol, is probably thinking that as well, so they'll head that way when it all comes apart.....be ready.

How much to have a well drilled? Water should be your 1st priority.

I'd try to find a place that already has a well.

Thatís a pretty piece of property and a relatively decent price. Still way too many people in the county for me, but that probably pretty good for CA. Whatís the fire hazard in the area and does it have water rights?

@ 'drobs' & AJ... From the Ad:

"THERE IS A SPRING WITH WATER RIGHTS ON EAST BOUNDARY LINE."...

...Reading is yer friend.. Nonetheless, a Well (..or two..) would be certainly be keenly on the look-into-it list..

re: Population, well.. Ya gotta consider that Shasta County's 'population centers' (that account for Most of that "County Population"..) are pretty sparse once you get outside of Redding (which accounts for ~90K ppl of that 'total', alone..) and 'Platina' (...where the Property actually is..) is Population: 200..

..So, yeah, that 'corner' is both pretty sparsely populated, and pretty rugged.. It'd honestly not be all That hard to 'isolate' / make defensible, and the 'golden hordes' aren't going to just be 'walking across lawns' to over-run the area, nope.. The majority'd fall to the snow / heat / mountain-terrain / cliffs / coyotes / bear / mountain lions / snakes / giardiasis long before..

Thanks for saving me the time answering the questions. As a matter of fact I am not 100% sure which county the property is in. Depending on exact location it could be in any of three Tehama being my preference but in any case it would be way out on the outskirts of any of the three in a very small population area.

The closest 'town' has a population of 200.

How prone is the area to wildfires? Like Alaska, I know California has them. When the world turns stupid, people stupid people will be in the woods and wildfires will be an issue. The property looks pretty good to go, knowing nothing of the area. Good acreage for the price and Iíd imagine agriculture would be good in the area particularly if the well is good producing. Certainly check the zoning laws and any restrictions on how you can use the property.

I did some research and found out that this particular property is indeed in Tehama County, population about 64K with a population density of 21 people per square mile with the majority living in Red Bluff and other small towns.

It looks like the property is about 6 miles South East of Platina in a very remote area at least 3-4 miles from a paved road.

To be clear, this would be a "business partnership" incorporated as a Limited Liability Corporation and run under "the Williamson Act" as a tax reduced property and run as agricultural community.

Everyone would hold a share of the corporation equal to their contribution in the purchase of the property and their participation status.

Yes, wildfire is always a concern in the area, but with a property of this size, precautions can be taken to minimize risk, especially in the dwelling areas of the property. I haven't walked the property, but hope to in the near future. It is about an hour drive from where we currently live.

Do you have anyone committed yet? Have you been to the property in question? I’m still interested. It would be awesome to have a group committed to a goal. OTOH, sometimes it seems easier, less complications to go solo. I love the idea of a very small group working together and bringing a variety of knowledge and strengths to the whole. I also know most of these endeavors end badly.

Let’s keep this conversation in motion.

I like the area. Land is reasonable and beautiful. At an elevation of 2,277 much could grow well there.
