Homestead Evaluation Criteria

Yesterday we introduced some of the Jackson family’s ideas about Finding Your Prepper Homestead.  Today we’re going to cover the homestead evaluation criteria we developed as we searched for The Hermitage in the hopes that it helps you develop your own evaluation criteria as you look for the perfect place for your family to live, survive and thrive.  We call our full time retreat The Hermitage but the goal isn’t to leave society but to have a safe place to live within society before, during and after local, national or international societal upheavals or natural disasters that also provides for as many of our needs as possible.  Below is the criteria I developed to help us choose The Hermitage and I hope that it helps you in evaluating your prepper homestead as well.

Full Spectrum Preparedness OverviewLike most preparedness topics we eventually approached the selection of a homestead/full time retreat using the Full Spectrum Preparedness Doctrine’s (FSP) fundamentals…wish I’d developed FSP much and taken that approach much earlier and we’d have found our home in a fraction of the time.

Evaluation Criteria for The Hermitage

Security

  • Safety:  A place we could feel safe.  Today and during any conceivable tomorrow.
  • Perimeter Security:  Fenced to deter casual trespassers and gated or gate-able to control high speed avenues of approach.
  • Hardened:  I preferred an Earth contact or masonry home but this is an area we were willing to compromise on to achieve other goals and maintain marital bliss.
  • Discreet:  We preferred a home, home site and outbuildings that were not easily noticed from the road or adjoining properties.
  • Off the beaten path but not excessively remote (see Health, Transportation, Financial & Family and Community goals below).

Shelter

  • Fire safe:  Metal roof, non-flammable siding, set back from surrounding brush, etc.
  • Flood safe:  Above the 100 year flood plain with good drainage that doesn’t require a sump pump.
  • Good Storage:  Preppers tend to require more storage than the typical household and useable outbuildings would be a tremendous benefit.
  • Basement or Tornado Shelter:  Living in the Midwest this always a concern.
  • Guest House or Secondary Dwelling:  Not required but would be a ‘plus.’
  • Alternative Energy:  An existing system would be nice but the ability to develop solar, wind and/or hydro power is also desirable.
  • Multi-fuel Heating:  The more heating options the better with at least the ability to develop a wood heat option.
  • Energy:  Serviced by utilities even if no home currently present due to the excessive cost of running electrical lines long distances.
  • Shooting:  Outside city limits so that I can practice shooting.

Health & Medical

  • Within a Half Hour Drive of a Level 1 Trauma Center:  Because stuff happens and time isn’t just money, it can also be life and limb.
  • Within 15 Minute Drive of a Primary Care Clinic:  Preventive care is important especially as Preppers begin to reach a certain age.
  • Grinder Pump Free with a Functioning Septic System:  A sanitary system not reliant on anything but gravity to function.

Transportation

  • Driveway Served By All Weather Road:  Because I want to be able to get home and to work even in the dead of winter.
  • At Least 2 Ways In & Out:  There are a number of otherwise suitable properties that we looked at which were flooded in several times during the year.  A train wreck, auto crash, road construction or flood shouldn’t keep you from getting to work, the hospital, the doctor or a friend in need.
  • Close To Work:  Within 20 minutes of work

Communications

  • High Speed Internet:  Affordable high speed internet service.
  • Cell Phone Service:  As attractive as living outside the cell phone service area is there are professional and personal reasons to have working cell phone service at the retreat…and it means we don’t have to pay for a land line.

Financial

  • Maintain Income:  Proximity to work.  See Transportation above.
  • New Income:  Ability to develop additional steams of income from farming, logging, mineral rights, CRP payments, etc.
  • Affordable:  Able to purchase the home within our planned housing budget.
  • Loanable:  Property that a local bank is willing to loan money on.

Food

  • Huntable:  Presence of large and small game for hunting.
  • Fishable:  Presence of or ability to develop a fishing pond or lake.
  • Farmable:  We wanted a property which we could develop using permaculture techniques.

Water

  • Municipal or Rural Water:  Serviced by municipal or rural water.
  • Surface Water:  Year round creek, pond or lake within 1,000 feet of home or home site.
  • Subsurface Water:  Working well within 1,000 feet of home or home site.
  • Water Harvesting:  Existing or capable of easily installing a rainwater harvest system…metal roof on at least one building and existing gutters are a plus.

Family & Community

  • Church:  Within 15 minutes of church.
  • Family:  Within 1 hour of key family members.
  • Friends:  Within our existing social network’s geographic footprint.
  • Wife:  No matter how perfect a potential homestead is…if it doesn’t make the wife happy than it’s a non-starter.

Cognitive

  • Lifestyle:  The house must meet our lifestyle needs.  For instance we wanted a smaller home than we currently had, room to entertain up to 6 people inside and dozens outside while also allowing the wife and I to each have our own hobby space.
  • Vision:  We can picture ourselves living there and being happy.
  • Recreation:  A home and land that allows us to pursue our hobby and recreational activities.

Final Thoughts

Evaluating you and your family’s needs and desires is the key finding the right Prepper homestead or retreat.  By creating evaluation criteria to search for and assess potential properties you’ll be much more likely to find your property because you will maintain an open mind rather than picturing the ‘perfect homestead’ and looking for a real property to match the one you hold in your mind’s eye.  When searching for The Hermitage we anticipated that we’d end up with an old house with good outbuildings and would have to expand or rebuild the home…when we found our property it turned out that the house was easily livable but the outbuildings needed to be built and/or moved in.  Because we were open minded we also ended up with about three times the land we anticipated buying and it was much closer to town, work, family and friends.  The tradeoff was that we had to do a lot of trash hauling and clean-up from the previous owners but we’re happy with the results so far.  Good luck developing your own homestead evaluation criteria and finding your own Prepper homestead or retreat.

 

The 6 Tenets Of Post Apocalypse Health Care

Author’s note: I was recently going through my survival library.  I was paging through a book entitled “Where There Is No Doctor”, by David Werner.  The ideas and skills in the book fit in to the FSP doctrine quite nicely.  I found a section that listed the tenets health care workers should remember.  Reading them, I thought that they would make a good article.  The tenets are direct quotes from the book.  The commentary for each is my expansion on them, explaining how they would apply in a post disaster world

Post SHTF the modern health care system we’ve come to rely on will not exist.  A black swan event doesn’t even need to take place to make the previous statement true.  Even a moderately severe event, like a national monetary collapse would disrupt society to the point that people may not be able to access their current health care provider.  The one thing that is true about any event is that people will be forced to look more locally for everything, including their health care.  People in third world countries and rural areas of the developed world already deal with this issue daily.  By mere statistical probability, most of Prepography‘s readers probably don’t live in those areas.  More and more of both the U.S. and the world’s population lives in, or relatively close to large urban areas.   Even then, their health care provider may be tens of miles away.  After a major event the “village”, if you will, will become more important to them than the large service/product provider that is 20, 30, 40 or even 50 miles away.  People will be forced to rely more heavily on what is in their immediate community rather than services we currently travel long distances to reach.  Read on to learn the 6 Tenets Of Post Apocalypse Health Care.

The 6 Tenets Of Post Apocalypse Health Care

If they are lucky, there will be someone trained to provide medical care post SHTF in their local community.  Someone who has made their home in the area that becomes the new village and is willing to help.   Even if there is someone like that; post SHTF health care is not just their responsiblity.  It is everyone who lives in this new village.  With that in mind, here are The 6 Tenets Of Post Apocalypse Health Care:

1. Health care is not only everyone’s right, but everyone’s responsibility.
The Full Spectrum Preparedness Doctrine (FSP) teaches that community is an important component to survival.  With that in mind, it is everyone in your group’s responsibility to look after the health of its members both individually and collectively.  One person thinking that they have the right to behave however they wish when it comes to health, hygiene and sanitation will endanger the entire group.  This is true whether your group is very small or is large enough in size to be considered a true village.

Andrew’s Note:  I think the term ‘right’ is used in too cavalier a manner these day.  It abrogates the responsibility of the individual to the group.  In a health care context this belief has also brought us dangerously close to socialized medicine.  I do wholeheartedly agree with the second part of this tenet, though.  It emphasizes the shared responsibility and shared consequences for health and hygiene within communities.  That said, I do feel a moral obligation to assist and treat others within the limits of my humble first aid training.

2. Informed self-care should be the main goal of any health program or activity.
Old wives tales, untested remedies, and such are not the basis of a good health program.  Teaching the group time-tested health and hygiene practices is paramount.  Any activity geared towards post apocalypse health care that doesn’t work towards that goal is a waste of time and effort.

3. Ordinary people provided with clear, simple information can prevent and treat most common health problems in their own homes—earlier, cheaper, and often better than doctors.
It is relatively simple to keep healthy, even in the harshest condition.  All it takes is knowledge and action.  The problem is most people don’t have the basic knowledge necessary or fail to act on that knowledge.  Any program that provides post apocalypse health care must be geared towards education.  People with formal training need to teach those without.

4. Medical knowledge should not be the guarded secret of a select few, but should be freely shared by everyone.
In primitive cultures, the witch doctor held sway over the village.  They held their secrets, many of which are now commonly know cures and remedies, close to the vest.  It is what gave them their power.  It is foolish to think that in modern times, especially in a stressful breakdown of society, that people would not revert back to such self-centered thinking.  Also, by spreading skills around redundancy and protection is provided against the loss of people with essential skill sets. It is the group’s responsibility to ensure that any knowledge about post SHTF health care is spread as widely as possible.

5. People with little formal education can be trusted as much as those with a lot. And they are just as smart.
Chances are that someone providing post apocalypse health care will not have been formally trained.  Even if they have been, chances are that they will be dealing with community health problems that reach beyond their pre collapse training and education.  That does not mean that they are incapable.  The new village must make the best with who they have on hand.

6. Basic health care should not be delivered, but encouraged.
Those providing post apocalypse health care should not look at themselves as end point providers.  They should have the heart of a teacher, and encourage the “village” to take an active part in the health of the group.

Where-There-Is-No-Doctor-smHealth Care Post SHTF – Conclusion

It is a reoccurring theme throughout FSP that your brain is the most important tool you have in your survival kit.  “6 Tenets Of Post Apocalypse Health Care” does not deal with the practical application of health care but the tenants do define a starting point on which to build the foundation for a comprehensive program for post apocalypse health care within your family, group or community.

Cogitation: Your Enemy Has A Vote

Cogitation: “Your Enemy Has A Vote”

Cogitation is concerted thought, reflection, meditation, or contemplation.  “Cogitation” highlights cognitive ideas that cross our paths.  These ideas and thoughts don’t really warrant full articles.  They are important enough to be shared as food for thought before forgotten.

Cogitation: Man Made Conflict

Recently, Ed Turzanski, Co-Chairman of the Center for the Study of Terrorism at the Foreign Policy Research Institute, was on a local morning talk show.  He was discussing the July 17th shoot down of the Malaysian passenger jet over western Ukraine.  The attackers appeared to be the pro-Russian rebels in the area. He was highlighting failures in US foreign policy in regards to the on going conflict.  He framed an idea that I found very simple and profound at the same time.

Paraphrasing, he said, “Your enemy has a vote.  Even if you disengage, your adversary will still be active.  It is better to have some positive control, than to have none at all.”

I can’t help but think that his statement is central to the concept of Full Spectrum Preparedness.  On many different levels it holds true. “Your enemy” doesn’t necessarily have to be a somebody. It can be inaction.  It can be bad government policy. It can even be the entropy created by a SHTF scenario.Cogitation: Natural Disaster

Stay engaged in actively preparing and learning how to live a self-sufficient lifestyle. Stay engaged in the political world around you and your community.  Help craft the decisions that frame your world. Create a mind set of staying engaged when confronted with direct conflict.  Even if your strategy is to disengage on different levels, try to maintain some of control over the situation.

In the end, you would be well served to remember; your enemy DOES have a vote.

 

I’m Not A Prepper!

Andrew’s Note:  Today’s article “I’m Not A Prepper” comes to us from Grumpy G as an addendum to the first article he wrote for Prepography, The End Of The World Starts At Home.  Grumpy G and I have been discussing some of his home food production techniques and he has graciously offered to share some of his techniques with our readers but he must have been getting a little grief for a comment he made in that first article as he asked for an opportunity to clarify his comments.  I find his perspective which I call ‘evangelical self-reliance’ refreshing and distinct from my own version of Stealth Prepping.  Both approaches seek to maintain Operational Security (OPSEC) but each system seeks privacy from a slightly different approach:

A.J. and I have been discussing some contributions I can make to the Food Preparedness facet of his Full Spectrum Preparedness discussions but before I do, I have to explain a comment I made in my inaugural post, The End Of The World Starts At Home.  The blasphemy I uttered was that “I hate the word prepper.”  I know it seems weird that on a site named “Prepography” a featured writer would declare “I’m not a prepper” but let me explain…

My dislike of the word “prepper” comes in two forms with the second form building on the first.

First, the word prepper has developed negative connotations recently in some circles.  In these circles, prepper translates more as “That Prepper Guy”, as Prepography‘s editor, AJ describes him.  It’s not a flattering picture that the non-initiated create in their minds.

People enjoy talking about what they are passionate about.  Say in conversation it comes up that you have three months of food set aside (I know, major OPSEC fail but bear with me).  They ask, “Are you a prepper?”  You have prepared some, so you proudly reply, “Why yes, I am!”  Thanks to pop culture and sensationalistic journalism (I use the word journalism loosely) the mental picture many people paint is that negative image.  In their ignorance, they view you as a kook and anything you say thereafter is tainted by that “prepper” image no matter how pertinent, factual or well reasoned.   On the other hand, if in conversation you tell someone how you’ve canned, dehydrated and frozen your garden harvest, or hunted meat; those very same people will become curious and begin to ask questions.  In this teachable moment they become open to the possibility that maybe they can do these, dare I say it…preparedness activities as well.  I’ve piqued the interest of several people talking about hunting expeditions, tending my garden, and raising rabbits; all without using the word “prepper.”  By breaking the ice this way I’ve even managed to get a few folks to admit that being more prepared and self-sufficient is a prudent course.  A few have even taken steps in the right direction and asked me for additional guidance along the way.

My second objection builds on the “that prepper guy” stereotype as promulgated by some elements of our pop culture.  Many self-identifying “preppers” started down their path thanks to those very same pop culture references we’ve mentioned.  The fact that they are becoming more prepared is a good thing in itself.  However, the problem as I see it is that these pop culture influenced trendy preppers miss the preparedness point.  Sure, they’ve hit the local COSTCO, WalMart or online Mountain House sale and purchased three months of storage food.  They may even have bought a gun…which was most likely an AR…(or as I like to call them a “Barbie Gun.”  [Andrew’s Note:  I hereby and forever disavow any besmirching of Eugene Stoner, Armalite and Colt’s legacy by referring to one of the greatest firearms ever built as a “Barbie Gun”]  Maybe the new prepper has even shelled out the big bucks for their very own Bug Out Location (BOL).  At this point, many Johnny-come-lately preppers sit back and revel in the size of their stockpiles.  While material preparedness is important and an integral part of any preparedness plan they’re missing the most important facets of their preparedness plan.  Without knowledge, skills as well as resilience (physical, mental, emotional and even spiritual) these ‘preppers’ remain unprepared no matter how big the size of their stockpile.  Unfortunately, for many motivated by the current “prepper” craze, those preparedness efforts more in depth than opening their wallet is rejected because they don’t want to risk becoming “that prepper guy.”

The smart or intuitive among them understands that once the material supplies run out there will be nothing left.  In most survival, grid down, disaster situations this won’t be a problem because the event will be relatively short lived but in a truly catastrophic event the lack of knowledge, skills and resilience can be the difference between life and death.  Being prepared means than just having the stuff…it involves doing the things.  Gathering ideas, build knowledge, practice skills, improve your self…body and mind.  True preparedness means changing your lifestyle to be more self-sufficient.  It means mentally preparing for the worst even while hoping for the best.  These are some of the reasons that I like sites like Preography, The Survivalist Board, and The Survival Podcast; amongst others.  These sites are about leading a more prudent and self-sufficient life rather than just stockpiling preparedness supplies and toys.   In the end, you will most likely see me use the term “prepper.”  It is simply too hard to discuss preparing and preparedness without using that most descriptive of nouns to describe the preparedness minded individual.  Just understand that I am using “prepper” under my terms as a way to describe someone who is prudent, far sighted and attempting to live a more self-sufficient lifestyle.

Andrew’s Note:  Regardless of what Grumpy G chooses to call himself I think he’s got a lot to offer Prepography‘s readers.  To read more about Grumpy G’s background and self reliance philosophy check out his author biography.

What Do You Think Of The New Prepography?

Prepography The Way It Used To Be

The Old Prepography

If you’ve been reading Prepography for more than a week then you’ve likely noticed our new look and feel.  I think our web developer Real World Web Design put together an attractive, readable and crisp design that makes it easier than ever to read the latest articles, delve into the archives or zero in on articles covering just one of the Full Spectrum Preparedness fundamentals.  The new look is also much easier to read for those of us with a little more silver in our hair.  I’m putting together the final punch list of tweaks but the they’ll be relatively minor and you may not even notice…with one exception and that’s fixing our readability issue for mobile users…I know, we’re on it!

That’s what I think but I’m more interested in what you think.  Drop me a line if you have suggestions to add to the final punch list.  If you already can’t remember what the old theme looked like I’ve included a screenshot taken right before the upgrade.

Thanks to Real World Web Design for taking my half baked, poorly formed ideas and turning it into something so beautiful.

Prepography reader ParkRGR asked me what the most popular articles on our website have been.  Below is the list of original articles (not including infographics created by others and military manual extracts) in order of popularity (most all time readers).

The CARVER Method For Preppers

The CARVER Method is an analytical anti-terrorism tool used by the U.S. Army for determining what assets are critical to a unit’s mission success and how vulnerable  those assets are.  By utilizing the CARVER Method Army leaders are able to better protect those assets and mitigate the effects of the loss of those assets.  This same tool can be used by preppers to accomplish their survival mission.  Here’s how I’ve adapted the CARVER Method For Preppers:  (more…)

1,000 and Counting

This posting represents the crossing of a milestone for Prepography.  There’s not much in this note to help you become more self reliant or better prepared but there’s a lot in the previous 999 articles, notes, infographics and quotes.

That’s right, this is our 1,000th posting!

It’s interesting to see which articles are of the most interest to our readers…it’s not always what I expect.  Some of the articles that take the the most time and effort researching and writing fall flat on their face with only a few hundred views, others which are written in just a few minutes on a topic that crossed my or one of our other writer’s mind or that I wrote for personal gratification only go viral.

To give you a feeling for how truly varied the most popular articles are, here are the Top 100 articles we’ve published in order from most popular to least…if our posts were graded on the curve, these are the top 10%, the ‘A’ work:
