My next trick is going to somehow convince the wife we need to buy a nice piece of property somewhere. When I say property I mean rural and I am talking at least 20 acres. If I go west in SC property gets real cheap...but we need to save some cash.
Believe me I am not hurting or anything me and the wife both have good jobs but we want to buy something and pay for it outright or have as small of a mortgage as possible. Right now that would be real tough...
My plan is to build and 2 or 3 room cabin on a piece of property somewhere, dig a well, install a septic system and solar panel for electricity. I would love to even put just a decent trailer on the property if that was a lot cheaper. I want to get a decent tractor and put that land to work with a garden and some animals.
I would love to build an outdoor range somewhere on that property as well to help keep the skills sharp.
Ahhh to dream.
Well I will be keeping my eyes open and if I come across a deal I can't refuse I will make it happen somehow.
My plan is if I get the land and can't build anything right away I can alway use the pop-up and camp for free. I would pack my generator and fill the pop-ups 23 gallon fresh water tank and be good to go. Plus if I get a decent tract I can always hunt on it.
I would love to get something with a pond on it...I have seen some nice properties with 2-3 acre ponds that were stocked. Fishing sounds good right about now...
I don't live in a city per se but the Charleston/Summerville area is filled with people and more show up everyday...so I want to move west away from tourist attractions and beaches...anything that draws people.
My wife says I am a simple man with simple needs and I think that will serve me well if the SHTF. I love the woods, I really do and I am one of those folks that could not talk to another human being for a year and it wouldn't bother me in the least...besides wherever I go my wife will go so I will never be alone.
Some people freak when they don't have cable for an hour. Technology isn't a right and you certainly don't need it to survive.
This is why I will do well if the SHTF.
...that is all.
