Keep that land. When any kind of turmoil occurs, you will still have it.

But I am telling everyone to get some kind of connection in another state.

I talk to people about being a Refugee. As an American, we can’t imagine the process of taking refuge. We can’t imagine refugee camps at state borders, or even town limits.

A friend of mine (Who passed on last year) fled his native home of Bulgaria, with everything he owned in a bag over his shoulder. He and his brother. When he crossed the border, he had nothing, a knife wound and his brother was killed at the border. That was his home town.

The balkanization of the US can happen. And I can’t stress enough : The Hudson river is a natural border. There are 6 bridges that cross it. It’s a very wide river, and you can expect patrols on it in the efforts of stopping crossers. Checkpoints can be setup at these bridges very easily. Should a “problem” or “event” occur (Anything from economic collapse to an earthquake) all of New England will be cut off from the farms of america. Even a small farm in CT would become a battle ground. You may not be able to occupy it.

Get some kind of friend or family in another state. Expect to have nothing in your possession. That’s what it means to be a refugee.

Expect other states to not accept you. Expect to be turned away at your time of need. Be strong.

An acre in Pennsylvania will do nicely, to back up your land in Connecticut.

Thank you. As someone else said, 5-10 years ago I’d have thought you were off your rocker, but now I have no doubt that something bad is coming down.

I have family in Texas, New Mexico and California, but they are all so far away. Getting some rural land west of the Hudson seems prudent, someplace I can get to with tank-full of gas if possible.
