Looking For The Perfect Bug Out Location

First of all I have to apologize for my long break from posting. I have been working 60 to 70 hrs per week and I just have to say I'm plain worn out. Extra money means extra preps that can be purchased. I am also looking to purchase my bug out location and begin building. I have already purchase plans for a cabin to be built totally off grid. So I am looking for at least 5 acres with a well and septic already present and close to another source of fresh water. 

A place fairly secluded and away from the larger metro areas. A area that still has good hunting and soil for growing within a 60 minute area from my present location.

This has been quite the task!

Its hard to find everything I want. I'm curious to hear from those that have purchase a bug out location as to what it is they have purchased and the criteria you had during your search. Did you have to sacrifice some of your criteria or did it change during your search. Can't wait to hear!!

Be prepared, not sorry

Ragnar Benson has some amazing books about putting together the modern survival retreat.

Brian D. Kelling wrote a book called, "Travel Trailer Homesteading For Under $5,000.00"

Our intention was to build a cabin while living in the trailer on weekends. For 3 years we've searched for land we could afford. What we ended up buying was a compromise, really, because of money. We found 1.25 acres with septic, spring and electricity. Borders state gamelands and a state park. The few neighbors there are great. We think they would become group members. We do have 3 grown sons and one grown daughter. Sons will be of help in a SHTF situation.
We paid $11,000.00 for our land. $2400.00 for the trailer.

I forgot to say that it is 70 miles from home. Trails that hikers use will get us the last 2/3 of the journey. Getting to those trails will take some time and trouble, but can be done without being seen.
