specie – Wow we are in Milford

First we were thinking Tawas…then I read “Patriots” and decided that the U P might not be far enough.

My husband who is a good prepper thinks I’ve gone off the deep end though…

    Re: Permadeficit on the Potomac

couple of things about the UP

first is the choke point at the bridge – really hard to find an alternative

second is the snow/growing season

i’m thinking north of M-55 but south of M-32

Yes you are right the bridge makes me nervous also…my husband cannot see the bridge closing.

He on his way up tomorrow to look at some property and and a little snowmachining. 

Also the bugs are horrific and sometimes 20ft of snow, small growing season…but I can’t help think that all those things will deter others from following?  I guess it just depends like on how bad things go down….i

Yes Alpena especially looked good to us only downside was prices for acreage were alot higher downstate…we can’t decide what makes more sense- acreage far away or more cash PMs…I feel like time is slipping away

Plus trolls are unwanted.  You will find your property looted while you are gone.  And in a SHTF scenario, it will be open season on you because you’re an outsider.  Also, not a good idea to look at property in the winter.  You don’t know what you’re buying.  Many areas have salt water underground (even being close to bodies of fresh water), other areas have topsoil scraped off by locals, other areas are all sand with just scrubby jack pine and other waste plants like poplar growing on them, others are swampy or have very high water table, etc., etc.  The realtors won’t tell you these things.  And if you’re looking at the 20 acre parcel I think you’re looking at (hint … it’s about 20 miles outside of Marquette), I wouldn’t buy it … bad joo joo.
