I have been looking at properties in mid to north east texas. Property is reasonable in many areas and it is within a 4 to 5 hour drive from Houston. Of course the area will need to be outside of major population centers and have at a water source.
Acreage would depend on the capital we are able to raise.
West and east Texas are my two potential location West would be more secluded but the elements are harsher- I have a few in my neighborhood that are peppers and that's it- I am in central tx right in the middle of Austin and Dallas so a Bol is essential Hope to learn from others Attending my first meet up group next Saturday
I am in a small town about 3-1/2 hrs from Austin up 183. Drought has hit us hard, but we're dealing with it ok at this point. Hoping to open up an old well on a property we are buying this spring. Need a good place for the kids to come to from Austin when SHTF.
Just my .02 but I live on the outskirts of Austin and I see BUYING a bol as a bit of a waste for anything but a localized event to me if the shtf there will be plenty of places to choose from with out spending todays money on it which to me could be better spent on food water security etc .... Don't get me wrong id love to own a few hundred acres somewhere with a military grade bunker complex but I don't see that happening unless I win the lottery and if I did own that it would be my residence lol .... What if you can't make it to your bol and spent half of your money supplying that place? I guess there is a bunch of what ifs and you can't be prepared for everything and I do have 3 bol picked and mapped but none of which I will be buying .... I am however interested in finding like minded people in my area don't see many here from the Austin area
