I don't have much of an idea on the validity of this map, which has been circulating in the PX and survival communities for years.
It is part of my frame of reference, and I cannot help but refer to it. The black areas are the ones which will suposedly NOT BE SUBMERGED after a pole shift.

I did notice that most of the state of Oklahoma and most of Kansas are in the not-submerged zone.
The eastern half of Nebraska is in the non-submerged zone.
Not sure how exact it is, but much of the "possibly/probably submerged" area in the centrally-north-south swath encompasses the Mississippi River basin, and the New Madrid Fault runs up the Miss. River. from Missouri's "bootheel" upward, so that entire north-south swath, IMHO, would/could definitely be in a danger zone.

PS the previous ad and ideas I posted about the former Babtist youth camp, Camp Jon David - well it was hit by a tornado in 2015 and they could not afford to fix it back up again...So, not all the buildings would be in working order. Even so, it seems a lot of property and a lot of potential for that amount of money. $325,000, priced for quick sale.

I happned to see a GoFundMe page for this camp: https://www.gofundme.com/vjan5w5w
Sometimes, even when a price is drastically reduced and nobody bids on it, and you've already looked at it, the realtor may contact you and ask you to make an offer.  Once in a great while someone will luck out and if you can detect that they are desparate for a sale, they may take a truly low-ball offer. 

Friends of ours did that one time, mainly because they loved the 56 acres on the Black River, but the problem was there is no bridge across the river to access the property.  So the realtor told them to just go ahead and make an offer, so they made a ridiculously low offer and were totally shocked when it was accepted.

Thinking about that storm damage to the OK property, one never knows how badly they want to sell.

ilinda, after I had already put up a couple posts about that place, then I happened to see the GoFundMe page which was up when they were trying to salvage the place. It is possible they are still trying. It was then I found out about the tornado.
It is sad, actually.
I had a thought about this, after the fact. In that region, everyone and his brother would know about the kids' camp which got stuck by a tornado. Everyone. So, a large group of people moving in would just naturally draw a lot of attention and curiosity. Not the best scenario for a survival group, to start out so famous.
I'd rather get a good deal similar but more isolated and perhaps one which was not so well known...
ilinda, I hear what you're saying, thanks for that story about your friend. Looks like it really is possible to get a great deal, when people are desperate enough to sell...

Excellent logic.  I wasn't even thinking in that vein, but I see exactly what you mean--if TSHTF, everybody and his brother in that area will be visiting the new neighbors, who probably won't want visitors at that point.

Yowbarb Note:
Here are a couple TN maps, New Madrid seismic zone and the counties map. Karst topography.
There seems to be a plentitude of acreage available in TN.
When finding deals, check to see the location and distance from the New Madrid...

Some unrestricted land ads:

Wow, some of those really sound worth visiting, assuming you're still looking at TN as a possible loc.  Several appear to be on creeks or rivers, one has two waterfalls, and much more.  Keep us posted if you see any of these.

Hi ilinda, I will look into those more... I am interested in TN as long as not too near the New Madrid Seismic Zone...
Karst may be a problem there I think.
Re parcels being on a river, I would never encourage that... Having a fairly large parcel with a creek or two flowing through it, not bad... Any parcel or building site near a river needs to be 60 feet higher than the river banks, per the zetas. I still have them as one point of reference... as far as an abundance of water, waterfalls, may be OK if land area big enough and the re are flat building sites  on top of a plateau area...

Yes, the only appeal of rivers or creeks would be if the ground is rolling or hilly, with homesides up high and dry,  and yes, building in bottomland is especially a bad idea.  We often see warnings that one must be at 700' or greater in elevation, but I feel over 800 is way better.   

Karst is definitely something to think about, as it is fairly widespread through much of the Ozarks.

I agree, 800 is far better...

Those rock outcroppings are beautiful, eh?  That one looks very interesting and the price probably can't be beat.  Check mineral rights, as that is a very big thing these days with the frackers wanting to frack this entire planet to death.  Nowadays getting all mineral rights would be a top priority for many.
