  1. General Discussion
    My thoughts are probably shaded by the fact that I grew up there and understand the environment and resources in the area well. Northern New Mexico is one are where survival locations would be easy to start and maintain. For one the cost of land in most of these areas is below the national...

    I've been looking for property for a vacation home/BOL about 3-4 hours from my home. I like a secluded wooded lot off the main road. We would be there on occasional weekends. What concerns me is that there would be plenty of opportunities for theft and vandalism. Any ideas?
  3. Urban Survival
    I'm relatively new to the forum, and wanted to ask if I was the only one looking into this. I've got a BOL if need be, but would like to try and stay put if we could rode out a tempoarary interruprtion in everyday life. I live in a condo complex with shared roofs, and if a place catches fire, it...

    preparing your BOL/retirement land, prior to actually moving there? I'm winding down on paying off my mortgage, and once that is done my next big purchase will be a BOL/retirement land. I live in a suburb, and unless something drastically changes in my life, I estimate that it may be around 15...

    If you were assembling a "survival team" to build a BOL, what personality traits would you exclude from the group.... are there any irritating habits that you could just not tolerate for the long haul in a post grid collapse scenario? are there skills that a person could posess that would...

    Be gentle, it’s a work in progress. The 100 acre property is located 90 miles from my primary residence (1.5 hour drive under normal conditions). 80 miles from nearest “large city”. Property access is limited to a small dirt road 3 miles off closest paved surface. 2 ponds, 3 drilled wells...

    I've been doing more reading than posting lately. (okay, stop cheering losers! LOL) With regards to my ILBE Pack, it's uses and what I want to use it for, I've been trying to balance out some kind of permanent load and some kind of extended load that just piggybacks onto it in case I ever did...

    Micro houses, shipping containers, yurts etc. I have a preference for something underground due to hidden and controlled temperature characterists. I'd like to have an idea of what I will need to spend to support a family of four. Thanks

    I know another thread about heskco's but hear me out. I figured i would write about these since i have been building a heskco bastion for the last three days. I am deployed and they are remodeling our COP to hold 60 guys instead of 300. I finally decided to use heskcos in my BOL because I was on...
  11. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I built a BOL a couple years ago, I now have a second one that is in the throws of being completed and am selling the first one, however selling the first one is proving difficult in this housing market. I am beginning to wonder if I should be marketing it as a BOL rather than an "up north...
  12. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    In an SHTF situation, many people say they would "head for the hills". So my question is. What does this mean for us who live in rural areas? What can we do to prevent a world of morons, who seek refuge in our areas from taking what is ours. It's not exactly easy to hide a house, but I'll be...

    So, the wife and I were driving around town and we saw an old truck for sale. It's an old Ford F250 Ranger XLT, the wife and I are guessing a '78 or '79. Asking price is $2000. For reference, here's a picture of the truck model, from Wikipedia not of the actual truck. I stopped and knocked on...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I have been doing a lot of thinking and trying to come up with a plan to combat an attack on our BOL by fire from a distance or close range does not matter. By one or many attackers. Once the fires starts its to late, so what ideas or plans do others have to combat this likelihood. If you read...
  15. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Here are my thoughts, and how I define some common terms; Shelter - Anywhere that you live (or can hole up) that is not self sustaining in the long run after the fact, such as an apartment in the city. BOL - Location where you are self sustaining in the long run. BOV - Vehicle that you can...
  16. Vehicles & Transportation
    In the PAW stories you often read where the hero and or heroine are stuck in the city and need transportation out of the mess. A their solution to the problem of no transportation is a bicycle. In all of the times that I have been on the prepper boards I have never see a bug out bicycle...

    OK everyone. You have to do this. It was a great experience and we learned valuable lessons. If you are planning on bugging out, practice letting your wife, GF, etc. doing it alone for awhile! My husband and I ran a scenario and was an amazing experience. Here is how it started. Hey honey...

  19. Looking For - Want To Buy From Vendors
    My husband and I are looking for help with our BOL. The right person(s) will be entitled to a very long-term lease of our acreage and assistance with the construction of a livable structure for themselves (small-large home, at your cost, but with our help). Our land is in NE AZ. There is...

    BLM Land Hi all, new and hoping to run an idea by some more seasoned survivalist. I current don't have a reliable BOL within any reasonable amount of distance. I have not saved enough to purchase a plot of land in a suitable location and probably won't for a few years being in the military and...
