  1. DIY - Do It Yourself
    Howdy all, Just finishing up the paperwork on the purchase of 40 acres of land. Old growth Juniper and backs up against 640 acres of State BLM land. Red border is property line, and yellow border is fenced area. There is an existing 5000 gallon above ground storage tank (blue circle) on the...

    My fiancee and I are planning on buying a spot of land and building a small cabin to live in, and using the land for gardening and raising livestock. Inasmuch, this would ideally be both our home, and our BOL. I guess you can say we're both pretty much PO'd at society, and we want to bug out and...

    Hello folks I would like to discuss what people's thoughts and plans are for the items they leave behind at their house once we've headed off for the hills or what have you. I dont mean wedding albums, or hastily forgotten guns amd ammo but documents that may reveal where you went or what you...
  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    I've seen other threads along this topic that seem to just die out after a few replies... but the subject still looks viable to me. I've been actively prepping for a couple of years after thinking about it for a previous few years. I have a nice "paid for" home on two acres in the Coastal Bend...

    When would you bug out and go to BOL? Would you wait until authorities told you to leave or would you go as soon as something happened? What is your signal to Bug Out?

    Yesterday I was working in the yard when I began to think about all the projects I want to do to make the house more "survival ready". For instance I am cutting down all the dead/sick trees and installing a wood burner to heat the house. I would also like solar panels on the roof and maybe a...

    Hey everyone I have a question for you. I have the chance to do some well thought out testing/articles and videos of and highly reputable solar power company and I wanted to know if anyone here would be interested in the testing, results and videos? This is not a system you would have to DIY...

    Not mine, this was sent to me via email from a friend of mine… He knows I want at least some sort of cabin since I sold mine in Gatlinburg TN a while ago. So he said "here you go, nothing like you had before but something that could get you back out there…:thumb:"

    Things are getting serious when a Hollywood Director decides to bug out. James Cameron (Titanic, Avatar) bought a 2,600 acre farm down in New Zealand and will be taking his family out of the U.S...

    Hey I want to ask a favor, many of you have never been in our chat room here on the board. If you look to the top left of your screen you will see “Chat Room” what I would like to ask is that everyone that reads this visit the chat and stop in and say hello. No voice, it is only typing chat but...

    Here are some of the new pics taken last summer on and near my BOL = remote mtn retreat. Some taken by Steve, one out of two 25 year old guys who camped on and near my mtn BOL last summer and quite a few taken by myself > First I would like to ask a question and hope to get some more ideas...

    How many of you have made preps for the defense of your BOL not including firearms? How is your BOL going to be defended? Understand that if you live in a state with one of the larger militias like Colorado or Michigan, in a true SHTF situation one of these groups just might want to set up...

    I posted this in a previous thread but nobody answered me! :mad: Ok, with all the talk of BO, exactly how do you plan to get there? For example, rush hour on a Tuesday afternoon slows everything to a crawl...or a complete stop. So how the heck to get out of Dodge when the SHTF? For everyone...

    To EVERYONE: I have seen and it has been reported things like dropping the F bomb has been in a big increase along with lately and just working around the word filter. This has never been acceptable nor will it be anywhere but in the DarkSide. Reports and I personally viewed an increase in...

    Here is the new pic thread that quite a few have been asking me to post and tell about what I did last summer near and on my mtn place / BOL / remote mtn survival retreat. If any out there even just look at most or all of the pics in this long thread then it would be like following me...

    Hey guys, I would like to hear your views on what the best bug out location would be when the SHTF. lets say one scenario lasts about 2 weeks-1 month and the other lasts 3 months or more. I'd also like to hear if your bug out locations would change depending if the SHTF scenario turned...
  17. BOB

    Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Whats in your BOB? What exactly will you be doing with your BOB? I see some people putting together INCH bags and calling them BOBs. BOBs require BOLs, while INCH bags do not. I have a few possible BOLs. I'll be trying to drive initially, with a trailer filled with fuel and a bicycle on the...

    After seeing similar threads on here about this type of topic, I thought that I would throw this out into the ring. How many times a month do we see someone post about how they are going to Bug-Out to the mountains but don't own any land ? Or how the Bugoutter ( MY new word, pend...

    I’ve read many topics on a Bug Out Location and the various areas people have selected as well as the criteria that led them to their decision. Me being curious, I decided to create a tool that would help an individual select a location in the contiguous US. Using a base map of the US, I...

    Do your children have a role in your retreat? I grew up on the family farm. What that means is "everyone" contributes to the operation of that farm. I remember I was driving tractors before my feet could reach the pedals. I remember driving the tractor and the baler while my brothers stacked...
