I'd like a stocked pond.. maybe a 1/3 acre pond. If we are dreaming big here...Solar panels enough to run the ref, waterpump and ac. I have lights taken care of.
I'd like a small 'guest cottage' no larger than a storage shed. I'd like to have a few guard points, like a kids tree house, built in a few select trees around the property. I'd like 2 more years of edible supplies. I'd like a govt that would act responsibly and pass a flat tax.
I'd like about 100 gals of gasoline and 300 of deisel (just for tractor use to do the heavier work like tilling the garden each spring and maybe hauling cut wood out of the woods with the truck.). WOW this is taking some real thought.. more on this later
A couple large standard jennys ,from good stock ' eat very little compared to a horse' [mammaths are too big to handle for us seniors] to guard the other animals and work a plow for small field of food,pull a buck wagon. Won't store gas it will be too appitizing for others,plus it is dangerous,imo.
I would LOVE to be able to afford to move back to the south (AR) and buy 10+ acres bordered on as many sides as possible by federal/state lands (four sides would work). That way I can start to dig in -- seriously dig in.
Where I live now a person could not hardly survive without 18-wheelers bringing everything in and pipes to pipe in our water. Especially a problem with all the people in the area -- if SHTF quickly without warning it would get ugly quick! I probably have just enough preps to get outta dodge and wait and hope things got better or MAYBE just MAYBE think about traveling. If SHTF in a slow orderly fashion I am getting out of here!
God helps those who are helpless: For while we were still helpless, at the right time Christ died for the ungodly. Romans 5:6.
For us I would like a milk cow. A storm shelter. A couple of pigs. More storage, but that could be in the storm shelter. A strong fence around our property and a dog that would bark at strangers. (Our boxer never barks, but her size is intimidating 65 lbs) Also need time to get more organized.
