Two retired teachers, looking for a small acreage off the beaten track where we could build a little cabin. We almost bought 5 acres in between two families of preppers and across a dirt road from several others, but the sellers wouldn’t allow us to inspect the septic before closing, so we refused to sign the sales contract.

We would like to have neighbors who would band together and help each other when things go bad, which was what we thought we had found. If there was any other land out there for sale, we would buy it, but there isn’t.

We both hunt and fish, and my husband can butcher the animals. I have a lot of experience gardening, canning, dehydrating, and sewing.  We’ve stocked up on lots of things, including fabric, needles, patterns for simple tops and pants for all sizes, thread, elastic, etc., first aid supplies, linens, seeds, etc. We currently have a working farm that could go off grid at any time. Solar power, wells. ponds, gardens, livestock, but it is on a state highway with neighbors that might not be cooperative in a crisis.  We have decided that this place is not going to be safe for us, with no community of like-minded people nearby. If we weren’t on the highway, we would invite folks to come here, maybe sell off small portions of our place to other preppers, but that highway isn’t going to go away.

So if you know of somewhere we could build a BOL, we would like to hear about it, please.

  1. We have an established group and retreat site in the northern lower peninsula of Michigan that is very rural with no freeways or cities nearby that has 10 vacant acres adjacent to us. Its hilly, has an awesome view and the sandy soil perks but it’s raw unimproved land; a septic and well would have to built. If you’d like to know more or just share, hmu at…

  2. Have remote land off grid in North east AZ 43ac. You can read our post “Looking for MacGuyver”… where are you? and where do you want to build?

  3. Hi C.A., if you go to the Arkansas listings and read the posts for 10Mar and 13Mar, you will find a contact for a group that is seeking to purchase land east of Rogers, Ar. Our numbers are growing weekly as we pursue enough interested individuals to invest, as a group, in purchasing this land. The above mentioned posts give contact info. Hope to hear from you soon.

  4. Hi! If y’all might think about North East Texas, send me a note. [email protected]
