Blog: Country Places to offer Prepper Properties
October 15, 2013 Written by Andy Davis
Country Places to offer Prepper Properties
For over 30 years, Country Places has been offering owner-financed land to those seeking a piece of the American Dream without the barriers presented by banks and mortgage companies.
Our properties are great for those seeking self-sufficiency or preparing for potential disasters. Now, we're excited to offer even more specialized properties to 'preppers'.
These properties could be used as a bug out location, a weekend getaway or a homestead and will feature a 40' shipping container on a hillside location. Some properties will include improvements like terracing for growing food and raising animals.
Prepper Property Overview
Strategically placed shipping container looking down over the property
Camouflaged entrance and parking area with trail to homesite
Education about how to further develop the properties to produce food and water
Affordable: $600 down and payments of $250-$290 monthly
National Preppers and Survivalists Expo
We are participating in the NPS Expo in Atlanta on October 19th and 20th at the North Atlanta Trade Center.
Natural disasters, man-made events and global unrest can trigger panic and disrupt our social or political order without warning. Preparing for such emergencies can help you and your family survive if ever an event occurs.
The National Preppers and Survivalists Expo is a two-day event focusing on the preparedness, self reliance, supplies and survival skills that are crucial when a catastrophe strikes. The Expo provides a forum where Emergency Preparedness Professionals (EPP's) and survivalists can learn techniques designed for every skill set.
Come join us and see more than 200 exhibits, 100 classes and over 8,500 preppers and survivalists for this Emergency Preparedness mega-event.
This year’s forums are co-created with the American Preppers Network and sessions include these topics and more.
Stages of Recovery
Sustainable Food Supplies
Other events include daily tours of a bomb shelter, first-aid training, Junior Survivalists certification, and a casting call for DOOMSDAY PREPPERS.
Check Us Out!
Stop by our booth at the NPS Expo to see a scale model of our prepper properties and find out how to buy your own bug out or getaway location!

Just another factor to consider when picking out your survival place: Radon in the ground and groundwater.
Wikipedia reference: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Radon#In_drinking_water
US Map farther below that
« on: December 12, 2013, 10:01:18 AM »
Yowbarb Note: I am not an expert on radon, nor do I know how bad it is...just posting the radon map as another factor to consider.
I was surprised to find that although I have escaped the L.A. smog and quake threat I am in a high radon concentrated state. (Florida.) Now Florida was never intended to be a permanent residence nor is it my bugout location. I do have family here and lots going on...
I advise people to try and filter out their shower and drinking water as best they can.
If someone has a chance to grab some acreage really cheap and it is over - all safer than where he is, and he feels the time is right...and it is nearby ...maybe he should grab it. Surviving earth changes is the most important factor...
Repeating the radon map and the US Map and will be posting it in one other location, "Find Your Survival Place," another Topic in this Board. That is where I normally post karst maps, etc.
« on: December 12, 2013, 08:48:38 AM »
Yowbarb Note: This is something I had not added to the equation, in locating safe places, radon.
I was just looking up ground water in southern /Colorado and up pops this US map of radon.
Wow. So my instinct to get inland and farther north may be right.
Yowbarb Note continued: I have a lot to learn about this. Decades ago, I went to a nutritional product meeting and the person said everyone needs to get a special showerhead to avoid stuff being absorbed into the skin. She was referring to chlorine at the time, but it looks like radon can be absorbed too. "Optimum conditions for radon release and exposure occur during showering."
Well a person would have to quickly do their homwork and consider radon in the groundwater as well as factors such as karst, closeness to dams etc.
In drinking water
The effects of radon if ingested are similarly unknown, although studies have found that its biological half-life ranges from 30–70 minutes, with 90 percent removal at 100 minutes. In 1999 National Research Council investigated the issue of radon in drinking water. The risks associated with ingestion was considered almost negligible. Water from underground sources may contain significant amounts of radon depending on the surrounding rock and soil conditions, whereas surface sources generally do not.
"As well as being ingested through drinking water, radon is also released from water when temperature is increased, pressure is decreased and when water is aerated. Optimum conditions for radon release and exposure occur during showering. Water with a radon concentration of 104 pCi/L can increase the indoor airborne radon concentration by 1 pCi/L under normal conditions of water use.

I am only guessing, but I think lots and lots of land has been sold in the past few years.
Lots and lots, no pun intended. Actually most of what I post is acreage.
Most of it has access nearby to electrical and etc. Some is unimproved raw land. The rawer, the less restrictions, generally.
I just checked Ebay, searching for "land for sale acres" and apparently there are only a few states represented which have ebay listings for land.
>> ARIZONA, ARKANSAS, CALIFORNIA, COLORADO, FLORIDA, LOUISIANA, MISSOURI, OKLAHOMA, TEXAS, UTAH, NOVA SCOTIA, Unspecified <<
