The Perfect Bug Out Location Survival Retreat

perfect bug out location

I will throw out a few bullet points to the conversation started.

While there’s probably no such thing in the real world as a perfect bug out location or a perfect survival retreat to call home, there certainly are things to look for when thinking about it wishfully or if actually considering a move.

-Water source on the property
-Enough land for privacy & security
-Good soil for growing food
-Climate conducive to growing season
-Like minded people in region
-Away from population density
-Far enough away from nuclear power plant
-Far enough away from a nuclear target
-2nd Amendment friendly
-Defensible
-Wildlife resources
-Private road to property, good distance from intersecting road
-Far enough from interstate highway systems
-Affordable taxes (can’t get away from that…)
-Natural barriers (mountains, bodies of water, etc..)

   

Some attributes will also depend on one’s personal likes and dislikes, their own preferences, their own unique risk tolerances, and so on…

I’m sure that many of you feel that you’re already living at your ideal bug out location or survival retreat. That’s great! I made a move several years ago to my own ‘retreat’. Although it’s not perfect, it fits with my own personal situation for the time being.

Lets hear from you.

If you’re already living there, what attributes do you consider especially important?

For those who do not live in their bug out location (probably the majority of preppers), what attributes would you consider to be important if you could live in that ideal location?

Important: I will never disparage any other prepper who is not already living in their bug out location or survival retreat. I hope those of you who have been fortunate enough to live the life will not be uppity to others here who aren’t there yet. This is all about advice, opinions, and encouragement.

I’ll update when I get a bunch of your input and try to condense it to more bullet points.
