Special Request Article: A Green Beret’s Guide To Relocation and Sustainability: “It Will Take Some Serious Planning”

9 posts in this topic

My personal intent is to serve your needs by giving you my best; indirectly (and by my choice, wholeheartedly), I work for you…for us.  I’ll try to schedule and do as many requests as possible, so bear with me even if one topic doesn’t appear for a while.  I read your comments, and all of them are important to me: good, bad, or indifferent.  So let’s get started, shall we?

Click bait or not, can I ask the OP to stop posting shortened links? I like to know where I'm going before I click. Thanks.

Heres a snip from the article,  less than 1/3, much more at her link.  

Jeremiah Johnson is a retired Green Beret of the United States Army Special Forces (Airborne) and a graduate of the U.S. Army’s SERE school (Survival Evasion Resistance Escape).

Note: This article is dedicated to Earth Angel

 

Hey there readers in SHTF land, how are you doing?  This article is headed with the words, “Special Request.”  From now on, when you guys and gals see this in either the title or at the article’s beginning?  You’ll know the article is on a topic done by yours truly at the request of one of you guys and gals.  I wrote a couple already.  I will mention the requestor’s name in a dedication to him or her, usually just under the title, to honor the individual.

My personal intent is to serve your needs by giving you my best; indirectly (and by my choice, wholeheartedly), I work for you…for us.  I’ll try to schedule and do as many requests as possible, so bear with me even if one topic doesn’t appear for a while.  I read your comments, and all of them are important to me: good, bad, or indifferent.  So let’s get started, shall we?

Earth Angel’s request was an article entailing options for those who wish to remain in the U.S., want to escape the cities, and where to relocate (a place where there is a modicum of freedom remaining).  E.A., this one’s for you!  It’s a tall order, both to detail and to fill, especially that last part as our freedom is eroding on a daily basis.  I’m going to explain the reasons my family and I relocated to Montana and list some basics that we used in consideration as such.  I’ll be “laser specific” in terms of steps taken and decisions to arrive at such a goal.  Let’s do it.

Midway through my military career, I visited a friend of mine, a retired Command Sergeant Major who had been a mentor to me (almost as a father) throughout my time in the service.  When I had some down time, I drove across country from Ft. Bragg to Libby, Montana to stay with him for three weeks.  It was then that I came to appreciate the remoteness of the state and the topographical features that made it such a rugged area off the beaten path.  For the next ten years (yeah, I’m that kind of weirdo that plans things that far out), I conducted an “area study,” if you will, of the state and the surrounding vicinity.

Many factors went into arriving at my final decision.  The goal was to find where to move our family so when the Fifth Mongolian Horde attacked or chaos (economic or other) ensued, we would have a good chance.  There were things I had to consider that were outside of my wife’s ability to give input regarding our location: the multiple missile silos in north-central Montana, the over flight patterns from Air Force bases (such as Malmstrom AFB), the proximity to the Canadian border, and threat-levels (domestic: totalitarian government, or civilian marauders; foreign: potential for attack by other countries and how it would affect our locale).

Please allow me to state for the record that for myself, becoming an expatriate is not an option.  I am an American, the United States is my country and my home, you are my countrymen, and I would rather die beside you, fighting for my home in America than sip margheritas in Belize.
