Hey guys, new to this area of GT. I have been on board with the prepper movement for a few months now. I live a big city (Las Vegas) and like most... if SHTF long term and the city is not a viable option anymore, I have been thinking about... option#1) buying a few acres of blank land and bringing a trailer to the site or building a cabin? option#2) a preexisting small cabin on less than an acre? No building or trailer needed. Both options in southern Utah since its fairly affordable out there (about $30k or less) and the wide open west is still fairly secluded and unpopulated out there. Plus its only 2 or 3 hours away. Is there a good resource to help me better understand the basic process of knowing how to shop for land or cabins in the hills or mountains? The cabins look to be located near other cabins so I dont know if I want to do that? I guess it could be good to have trusted neighbors to help out? But I also like the idea of having 5 or 10 acres very secluded and away from anyone and just have a self sustaining micro farm for my family and friends only. I know its a big investment but the way I look at it... if nothing happens my family gets a vacation cabin in the outdoors and if something happens my family has a place to bug out to and live off the grid and live self sustained (just as the folks of the great depression were forced to do) if it came to that? I have been reading and watching everything I can such as greenscience/youtube etc etc and several survival books. For years I have been prepping for home invasions, robberies, muggings, and basically short term SHTF...but only recently have I opened my eyes to the real possibilities of having to live through a neo great depression thanks to Obama & Bush, the FED and the IMF and all the other domino effects of the world economy. Thanks for any help on the subject. Wanna kill these ads? We can help!
