Currently we are looking to buy a farm in a very rural type environment. We are looking into getting close to 150 or 200 acres of land to start our build for the future, we don't know what that will hold but you know how the saying goes, better to be safe then sorry (in other words, I want to be prepared). So if this was your future living place what would you do to it? Food storage, self-sufficient, house build (what kind of material would you build the house out of), bunker, what kind of land would you look for (rocky, soft soil, lots of rain, vegetation, wildlife, cliff faces, hilltop, dense woods, creaks, rivers, ponds, etc.), what kind of defenses would you use, stockpile of weapons (what caliber and what kind of weapons, gear, etc.), power supply. Basically this will be a build from the ground up. So how would you go about going completely off the grid ahead of the grid actually shutting down? P.s. The location of this build will be more than likely in the central part of the United States (so that should give you a pretty good idea of whats around), if you have any ideas already made, pictures are more than welcome. Thanks ahead of time.
