    Retreat Checklists - checklists to be used once relocation to retreat has occurred. Checklists will aide in making sure things are started in an orderly and efficient manner with minimal oversight. This list is for a retreat that is actually a house in the country and a full time residence...

    Building a Wilderness Homestead in the PNW. Previously, from WR: http://www.survivalistboards.com/showthread.php?t=354630 Well, it’s that time of the year again and it was with a buzzy heart I boarded the great plane west for the Americas! :) On the flight there were no dramas, on the ground...

  4. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    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 could really use your suggestions. Recommend some good magazines related to homesteading, market gardening, off-grid home building, low-energy/zero energy home design, rural living, etc.
  7. Books, Movies & Stories
    The following was one of several books and articles that greatly influenced me about 30 years ago. I really like the first part and towards the end is the story of Hawk, a guy who lives alone in the wild near Rogue River, Oregon. The middle part is about Mel Tappan and some of his...

    Just thought that maybe I should first give the link to my photobucket site and let you all look at the New pics I took when I was working and Living on and near my mtn BOL / retreat. I am Not bragging, just sharing some of what I do. Some might even find some helpful info in the...
  9. Site Information & Suggestion Box
    There are quite a few people on this board who have built or done significant remodeling their own homes and retreats. It would be nice to have a Home/Retreat Building section so their hard earned knowledge could be passed down to those members planning work for their own retreats. Building or...

    Just out of curiosity, has anyone here ever thought about a bug out tree house. Survival Swiss Family Robinson Style. Seriously, a tree house has limition but it has some advantages too. Pros: Above Ground View Easy to camoflauge from a distance if in thick woods Some flood protection Cons...

    Has anyone on here considered group retreats? It seems like a good idea to group up with four or five families to purchase and prepare a retreat rather than going it alone. The division of labor and increased breadth of skills alone seem like "stability multipliers".
  12. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    There are many threads about root cellars, fallout shelters, underground shelters etc. even Bunkers. This thread can discuss them all if people wish to contribute any of their ideas and links. A defensible bunker and an NBC shelter are different. A shelter must be a buttoned-up, closed-in...
  13. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Lately there seems to be many threads asking if people practice bugging out or if bugging out to a BOL will even work. So I thought it might be good to actually tell about in detail and show with many pics how one can get to a BOL - bug out location for those who might not know. And even...

    Bug out to your safe haven..... got food stored, water stored but what if it takes a while to get back on track and you have to spend months or years living off the land. If your in the South, you might want to plant "Moringa". This is a Tree you can "Eat" every part of it.

    Here are some new pics of my remote Wyoming survival retreat. Many of you have seen my first thread where I showed my bunker and retreat in the "photos of my underground shelter" I have gotten quite a few emails the past couple months asking more about my retreat. One of the best ways to...
  16. Nuclear, Biological and Chemical (NBC) Survival
    Just thought I would make a new thread about underground shelters, which is one of my favorite subjects. I built an underground shelter which I call an underground cabin - bunker - fallout/blast shelter even part can be a root cellar etc. I built this shelter on my remote mountain land in...

    DH and I are looking for a couple vacant acres in SE Michigan (but at least 50 miles from Detroit) b/c unfortunately for several reasons we are stuck in this area. We'd like to live off the grid and in a lenient county. I just talked to a realtor today who said that there are a few townships...

    Forest, Mountains(what elevation is best?} ,Desert, Great Plains, Coastal Area, Semi arid climate (with cold winters Eastern WA OR or ID) or North to Canada to get away from the large populations?
  19. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Ok we are aware of the SHTF and we are aware of bad times to come but are we really understanding SHTF right? For me the fan might get poop on it tomorrow if the stock market callasped and my business went under, I would need a place to live and a place to call home where the cost of living...
