when I bought my place I didn't think about it being such a good place to sit out bad times and good.

I won't be going anywhere. This is my home and it will take something very big to get me to leave. This land was settled by my great-great grandfather and handed down to the oldest grandson ever since. I got it from my grandfather when he passed and I'll do the same with it. So much history here, roots run very deep. And as a plus a lot of my family lives very close,and my Brother and Dads place are connected to mine. I'll be staying.

Same here, 14 acres in rural Tennessee. The nearest gallon of milk or gas is 12 miles. Not perfect but it feels like it sometimes.

Hey, I read an article, I think by Claire Wolf, about a lady who purchased a place in rural Washington only to find that FEMA had designated her property an evac place-to escape to in case of Mt St Helens. No one told her, she just happened to read an evac route brochure and discovered it herself. Yikes.

Im screwed. 12 miles from one of the biggest military bases in the world and surrounded by sheeple. That reminds me, I need to buy more ammo.

I live on 1 acre 2.5 miles from the city limits of our county seat. Our county has a population of about 50,000 with about 358 square miles. I feel lucky that the large portion of the county is farmers and trades people. I can look forward to the knowledge and skills availible in my community, and that we will shoot for each other rather than each other. Here I am on city water. But, in the same county about 13 miles further out of town I have 26 acres with another house and a 30x40 shop. There I have a well with much of the land ready to farm again when needed. There, I currently have persimmon, muskadine, apples, hickory, and walnuts. I am adding more apples along with pear and peach. About 20 acres cleared and 5 acres wooded. I am just glad that the 26 acre property is the one I have paid for free and clear. I have been here my entire life. If I ever HAVE to leave it will be in a box, or holding the hand of Jesus!:)

I live on 3 waterfront acres on an island in a rain forest in a state with one person per square mile. I am the last private property on the island 15 miles from town with nothing beyond me but God's green acres and all it's critters. My nearest neighbors are 1/2 mile. It'll do.

300+acres of family land, used to be a dairy farm back in the day, with a creek in back. Roughly 66 people per square mile in our parish. 10 miles from town unfortunately. Of course 25 miles would still be to close if you cask me. :D: Land has been in our family for six generations so it will take a lot to get me to leave.:mad:

Living in the backwoods now, in a small town.
No neighbors.

I was out in my back of the property yesterday shooting my SKS Para.

Fresh water from a mountain stream runs year round literally next to the house - and there's a river along the road that our driveway is on.
Deer and pheasant aplenty too.

Since I plan to bug in, I guess you could say I'm living at my retreat. I am on a couple acres, with plenty more land in the area to expand into. Hoping to get my animals in this summer, but the economy looks like it's going to prevent that. Oh well, storage food it is for now.

1st... I heard about United Nations Agenda 21.... (still haven't made up my mind about *that* one)

2nd... found the TV Series Jericho... see the VALUE of living in Smalltown USA.

3rd... read One Second After.

I'm currently in Smalltown, USA (under 1,000 population). I've decided *this* is my best option. MY PLAN is to Bug In.

Just make sure you don't own the BOL under the same entity that is the mortgagor of your primary residence. If you do, and SHTF and the mortgagee called the note because you physically couldn't get payment through, they could attach your BOL.
