Episode-444- Setting Up A Low Cost Bug Out Location (BOL) — 12 Comments

  1. I thought I should let everyone know when buying property, I’m sure most people have already thought of it. Make sure to spend the $1000 -$2000 to get the property surveyed. The last thing you want to do is accidentally be bugging out on someone else’s property. And the survey will help you remember/find the edges of your property, and when you know where they are you know when some one is on your property. And if you ask really nicely I’m sure the surveyor will give you the elevations, though not official, very useful, even if sketchy. But at least you would have a place to start, and would easily know where the major direction surface water flows on the property (assuming it’s fairly flat).

  2. Very good show with great ideas for me and my husband to ponder. We’ve focused so much on ‘bugging in’ and paying off debt that finding a piece of land for bugging out has been on the back burner. We still like the idea of Southeast Oklahoma and, of course, Arkansas since I’m a nut for quartz.. Now that we are out of debt (except for the mortgage on the house.. 9 years to go…) I’m hoping we can continue to add to our hard assets and keep our eyes open for a really good deal on some land.

  3. I’m looking for the “ghetto” get down, low budget brother bug out location.

    Montana is NOT the place to find low budget land in the under 10k range! Helena is expensive, and the Madison River Valley and Bitterroot can be expensive too. Montana is the land of multi million dollar land owned by banksters and for sale to globalists.

    Rural parts of WA and ID have some great land buys!

  4. In your show you mentioned a “soft pack” I hear these terms alot. Can you maybe expand on the soft packs, fast packs, this kit, and that kit in a show.

  5. Great show today Jack!

    I know you always say, (something along the lines of) “if you can’t find inexpensive land you aren’t looking hard enough.”

    I live in the Seattle, WA area and all the raw land I’ve been able to find within a 2-3 hour drive far exceeds $10,000 an acre.

    There is a LOT of cheaper land in eastern/north eastern Washington and also southern Washington but nothing within a reasonable drive of my home.

    Can you recomend any other websites/resources to find other land for sale? I’ve scoured the main real estate websites:,, etc. and also checked out United Country.

    Also, if property is just too expensive to buy with cash, what are your feelings about financing a BOL? Are they ways to write the interest off as a second home/vacation spot (wouldn’t add up to much but everything helps).


  6. @Luke,

    Thank you for the info! I appreciate you taking the time to answer my question.
