Default Bug Out Land... I finally bought it!



Advertise Here

The wife and I have been dedicated 'Preppers' for the last few years, slowly building our reserves. And I have been on the look out for some BOL in the event we are ever in the right position to actually purchase any land...right time, right place...right price tag? And so on...

And we finally did it! We own BOL...and its AWESOME!
Over 7 acres, mostly forrested but with some nice clearings.
And it has a spring fed pond! Perfect. I plan to stock the pond, naturally.

Im thinking a garden, a small arms training range and a deer stand...or two.
We plan on building underground with a 're-inforced' shipping container.
I have as others...been reading, researching and looking into this idea.
I am going forward with this one.

I will keep you all posted as the Deer Camp comes together!
It is going to be a lot of fun...and perhaps a little work as well?
To actually be Doing what you set out for...Wow.
Life changing.

I will keep you all posted.

Kinda looks like your pond is a shallow limestone quarry. Any chance you could continue to continue to dig into that rock face and build your self a cave?

Ps, I suggest a field tractor and a brush hog if you want to clear any large crop areas.

That's an awesome chunk of property and I, for one, am jealous

Looking at the water, especially in that last pic, I see stocking it with some bass, crappie and bluegills... that's exactly the water type they like.

Congratulations: Now the hard work is over and the harder work is about to begin.

If you plan on being there sometime in the spring, you may want to contact the Sierra Club and get a schedual of their spring foraging trips. They do charge, but it would be great for you to be able to find and forage for food on your own bol.

Nice looking property and pond! One comment on your plans for building underground. you may want to see what the surface water level is like during different parts of the year. Where I live any hole in the ground becomes a pond during the Spring time. Sometimes never drying out. The ground water could float your new place right up and out. Even if it does not do that it could get everything very wet.

I second the idea of digging a cave though. You could have it sloped to drain water from it. With a little cleverness it could front on that pond with a dock. Than the only access is by your boat.
