If you are reading this in your cubicle or in your apartment you might be laughing out loud. You are probably thinking that anything is better than your current situation.
Where you decide to prep is a big consideration. You have to both understand what that area is going to be all about in good times and what it might be like in times of collapse. This is not easy. Finding a nice place to live can be hard enough.
I mean, it’s not like we just get to pick. There are money considerations that go into it.
Most preppers think that the further away from people they move the better they will be. Not sure about that. Nothing in life is ever so cut and dry. Other preppers have changed their tune on this very topic.
Here are some considerations for those on a mission to get as far from people as possible.
Rural or urban you cannot do anything alone. If you are out there by yourself you are going to have issues. Even if you dont square off against people, what if you are faced with damage to your home, medical or health issues?
Community is a must no matter where you are on the map.
Be Honest About your Dependence
It’s common for people to get out in the rural areas and start pretending they are not dependent on anything. While they are wildly more independent than people in a city, they, likely still need something from the store. It’s nearly impossible to become completely self-sufficient.
Whether its propane, batteries or feed for animals, we need things even out in the rural areas.
What About Life?
Of course, one of the most important parts of living rurally is to assure this is the type of life you want to live. You give a lot up in rural living. Of course, you gain a lot too.
Dont just assume that rural is better, while it might be, you should spend some real-time considering it.
