My associates and I have recently been on the hunt for a quality acreage to be used as a survival retreat. Before we went looking around though we discussed a set of criteria that our potential retreat must cover. Some of you reading this right now might be thinking that this article is not for you since buying land is out of your budget, keep in mind though that the costs can be brought down if you pool cash in with a group (family/friends/like minded preppers). Also if you take a look around you’d be surprised by some of the great prices out there for undeveloped lots. The following is our list of must have features for any rural survival retreat. Keep these in mind when buying your next lot of land.
