...on relying 'completely' on the advice of others.
I had researched and purchased my family's retreat property/home long before I ever heard of Joel Skousen and his book, but when I saw the topic being discussed, I posted the info because it can be tremendously useful, particularly with the multi-faceted research and approach he takes.
It just so happened that I had already selected and purchased property in a location in my state that was smack-dab in the middle of what Skousen researched and considered to be a prime retreat location.
As an aside, we are moving full-time to 'the redoubt' in several months. A bit of remodeling and livestock-shelter prep still to do when the thaw hits.
As to the State of Florida, it is wholly unacceptable as a serious retreat/survival location for a multitude of reasons.
