Time To Make A Move

This next contribution in our new Resilience Spotlight series, featuring stories from Peak Prosperity readers, comes from reader suziegruber. She recounts here the process she followed in making the decision to relocate to a location better suited to her resilience goals -- one of the topics PP readers express the most interest in receiving guidance on.

a call to relocate to Europe

my argument is simple: mankind did not pop into existence a few thousand years ago. So what are you prepping for? A limited cataclysm did not wipe the Earth clean of people 13,000 years ago. It was much more serious than that. Our ancestors were neither suicidal, retarded, nor ignorant. And yet they were thrown into a new stone age (after building things like Puma Punku which we couldn't build today if we chose to).

Relocating - need advice on how to evaluate land

Does anyone have recommendations for books or tips on how to evaluate land for potential permaculture?  We are going to be moving to the Northeast next year but not sure yet which state.  I really like southern New Hampshire because it looks like the growing season is reasonable and the state taxes and gun laws are favorable.  We are going to take a look at the Keene area.

Consider Counties with Declared Constitutional Sheriffs & Peace Officers

An important relocation consideration, or consideration in general, is to be in an area where the county sheriff and other peace officers have publicly declared their intent to honor their sacred oaths to protect and defend the Constitution, and to defend their constituents against unconstitutional perpetrators.  Many of these have civilian auxillaries which can be joined to augment local forces in defense of communities.  If your county does not have a Constitutional Sheriff, you can learn how to elect one in the next election.

Where To Live In The United States?

This is a question I continue to ask myself as a resident of an over-reaching, over-taxing & over-regulating state (Maryland). For me, as independant thinking individual who values family, freedom & liberty above all, I find a vast majority of the population & its "leaders" above the mason-dixon line nauseating & economically inept. Like most on this site, I feel as though the writing is on the wall and the last thing I'd want is to paint myself and family in a corner where we have zero options.
