My place to bug out if and when TSHF is a little extreme and maybe over the top in most peoples minds. I would like to say first that I do not believe in a martial law or invasion type event. I do beleive that in the event of a major disaster that you should be prepared. The place I will go has some history. I inhertited it from my dad who passed away 11 year ago. He was brought up in the Cold War era and belived that you needed to be prepapred. While I own all the land I split the expense with 3 cousins and we use it as a getaway and one cousin uses the land to raise cattle and some hay. The property is 17k acraes and has a 1750 acrea lake and 7800 acreas of cleared space for growing hay and raising cattle, It is located in the rolling hills country in Central Texas and is a good hour drive from a big city and 3 hours from a major city.
My dad built a cabin that would be considered green in todays terms and I have upgraded it from the original cabin. The cabin is 2700 square feet and has cinder block outer walls. I renovated the inside put in 2X4 metal walls throughout. It has a foam insulation on the walls and attick. I have installed solar panels on the roof and it has 3 windmills for the house and out buildings. I cannot get outer power there but we have alot of sun and wind year round. It sits over an aquafir for water and I have several wells there ( 1 for the house, 1 for the lake and 1 that feeds a stock pond. The appliances I have are a zero volt type that provides the water heater, a gass range, gas dryer and gas heater. I also have 3 fireplaces in the house. The property also contains 2 natural gass wells that I recieve royalties off of each year. Now while I have the royalties, myself and my cousins each put up 10k a year to help with upkeep and stocking.
We installed 3 natuarl gas tanks that are changed out each year, Each of my cousins use them for there homes and we bring in new tanks. We estimate that we can run off of them for 2.5 years if we had to. We also have a surplus of food there in MRE's, can goods, and bulk items. We rotate these every few years. We also have a large cache of other items we will need if anything happens.

Maya, somewhat following what you are trying to say. Caps kind of kill it for me at least.
If I may ask what country are you from so I can better undertand and follow along with what you are saying?

That is an amazing place you have inherited. You family has done right by its decendants, as I am sure you and yours will when the time comes to pass it down. Just insure that the knowledge of its importance and utilitarianism gets passed on as well.

I applaud your preparations. I only have one question?

Got room for one more?


Seriously though, on a much lesser scale, maybe a tenth your scale, is what my brother and I hope to still have when our family matriarch passes on. My grandmother, the last of the "grand" generation in my family is still alive and still holds the rights to our entire family holdings.
Just as you get nat gas royalties, my grandfather (rest in peace) set my families land up as a tree farm and my g/m gets a meager annual pension from them.
I grew up on the land and know it by heart and know exactly the spot I would stake in a Sit-X fallout. As you have, there are a couple of ponds for fishing, tapped underground water supply, a lot of forest land filled with game animals, and a few predators. There are naturally flowing streams and once, about 280 acres were used to grow soybeans and cotton. It is still very fertile.
We have a host of shelters on the land, ranging from cabins and barns to small hunting shelters. Some are in better shape than others, but they all would suffice as a first drop place in an emergency.

That is my bugout place of choice. And having that choice is what lets me sleep well at night.

So $10000 will buy a space in your cave??? Where is it though?

Maya, trying to not be "downgrading". I am starting to understand what you are saying. It is much easier face to face. I sent you a U2U to try and help you you. Let me know if I can.

That was uncalled for so far. Maya is trying to talk with us.
Now if this is a spam add then I will withdraw my comment and buy you a drink spolvil.

That sounds like the perfect set up OP, and its even more meaningful that the place was handed down in the family, and that (im guessing) your father taught you a lot about surviving a war of any kind. My father has an excellent set up on his.. you know those huge metal tanks that gas comes in? a number of years ago he had one of them buried behind the house in the side of the mountain pretty much outside their back door, the door is heavily made and can only be opened a certain way, and thats plenty of room in it to 'camp' in for as long as needed, my parents both (and myself now im older) live of the land a lot already, veggies they grow in their fairly large gardens is canned for winters and also stored for emergency purposes. Unfortunately i am 3,500 miles away from them lol.. but here we have a stock of dry and canned good, organically purchased seeds to further gardens..we also can a lot of fresh fruits and veg when possible to stock up, and we have a few safe locations in mind to get to when need be..though we have also thought of trading our car for a bigger utility van, that way theres always a roof over our head and enough room to pack needed supplies.
So not quite as indepth as your set up! which sounds amazing by the way.. but its still a start

thank you for sharing this, people need to learn to fend for themselves a bit more and many need to at least start thinking in the 'better safe than sorry' kind of mindset..

Me and my family are always about helping. We always have room for one more. You sound like you have things going in the right direction though, but if you want we always have room for one more.

Your setup is not bad. As I have said I do not believe the end of the world is near, but I feel eveyone needs to be prepared for the disaters that have come in our lives and may strike us where we live. I am happy to finaly be home to be with my family and help if that comes to it. In the mean time we will vacation there and enjoy.

just out of curiosity, what does being a freemason have to do with living in a cave, or fema camps? Do they teach you differently in Northern lodges?

OP, I am very jealous. Sounds like you have a perfect place. I hope one day to get a place that can operate off the grid.

Maya are you realy trying to use this forum to sell time shares for a cave?
This is not the place to do that. There are other places you can go for that.
