For the last couple of weeks we’ve been taking a look at finding the perfect place for our own personal Shangri-La: a live-in bug out.
In the first part of the series, I suggested the process should take no more than a year. I began by choosing a region within the U.S. that suited my own proclivities; specifically, the states of Montana, Idaho and Wyoming.
Please remember this is just an exercise. I’m not suggesting the entire readership of WND should move to the inland Northwest; nor has my description of this process been complete. Simply because I found I liked southwestern Montana doesn’t mean I wouldn’t have found a nice or even nicer place in the states of Idaho or Wyoming. And your regional choices may be completely different than mine. You may have determined that the best places for you would be found in Vermont, New Hampshire or Maine.
The steps I’ve outlined in the last few weeks will only be of value if you have determined that living and remaining where you are is ultimately destructive to the safety and well-being of your family. And make no mistake, making such a move is consequential. After many years of watching a number of people come and go around my homestead, I’d estimate that about 25 percent of them regret their decision. These are the folks that simply cannot leave their city lifestyles behind; as a result, they usually don’t stay too long.
Is prepping the right thing for to do for Christians? Or should we just be trusting in the Lord? Learn about that balance in “Be Thou Prepared” by Carl Gallups – “Equipping the Church for Persecution and Times of Trouble.”
