10 days under contract for "the land". Trying to figure out what type of shelter to put on it. It will just be used on weekends for now so will basically be unattended. Here are my thoughts: Camper: Can be bought used for 7 - 10k Has everything - furniture, fridge, stove, beds, toilet cabinets plumbing - Will have to run a generator for most of that to mean anything. When TSHTF, it will just be a basic shell since all the insides require a lot of energy to run. Cabin: Can be set up for about 5-6k More solid Will have to dig an outhouse, buy some furnishings, wood stove, insulate it, etc. It seems like the camper would be the way to go, but there are a few things that bother me about that: Most of these are built like cr*p. No doubt I'll have some trouble with it in years to come. Will it disappear? I don't think theft is bad in the area, but it only take one loser. Will stuff be taken from it - of course I won't leave anything valuable around, but will people take the fridge, microwave etc.? I don't know - I'm not a thief! Waste disposal - site may have a septic system, but if not - whew no way! Cabin- Very primitive. Doubt I'll get the girls out there very often. Little chance of theft since all that will be left is cheap furnishings. Opinions welcome!
