Re: Thinking of bugging out to the country? Think again.
As much as I would love to bug out to the country I do have to admit that I would have no clue as to what to do.

I have lived in a big city all of my life, I can barely take care of a houseplant LOL.

I would be willing to learn and work really hard but I know that I wouldn't be able to do it alone.

If an "event" occurs during the height of a cities' rush hour, bugging out will not be an option. Pray nothing happens in your town when you are stuck on one of those freeways with "sound barrier" walls built on both sides, and traffic at a standstill. An EMP would render every car useless. You're pretty much gonna be fucked, a victim, or at the mercy of whoever is, or becomes, in charge.
You can't bug out when you're swamped in a sea of insane people trying to "get out".

sounds like a guvment agent to me.

Lots of study shows a 600 intake prolongs life.


but yeah, most city folk wouldn't last very long out here in the sticks.

speaking of which, you know we cant even get fresh bread now because of the strike after the nazis centralized production to burn more fuel, which raises the cost, which in turn raises the inflation tax. Long short, bring a good bread recipe if you come.

You will have hoardes of hungry people of all different races with guns and half out of their minds.

Don't forget, OP, you also need to be mechanic. Your machinery needs upkeep and you just can't haul it off to a repairman when the tractor or combine give you trouble.

I grew up on an Iowa farm - crops and livestock. Once grown, I lived w/my husband west of Wichita, KS for a number of years (as a city couple living in the country as we didn't farm). It drove me nuts to have all these other city people moving out to their 10 acres and then all they did was bitch that the farmers drove their equipment too slowly on the roads, the farmers were burning off their wheat fields and contaminating their pools, the farmers' cows smelled... I just wanted to tell them to shut the F up or move back to the city.

A properly set up aqua-phonic system in your backyard will provide you with plenty of vegetables and protein for a fraction of the effort traditional farms use.

Why aren't you setting up half a dozen small aqua-phonic systems instead of wasting so much labor and water on a old-fashioned garden? (Aqua phonic systems grow the same amount of food with 90% less water usage).

Re: Thinking of bugging out to the country? Think again.
DarthDAS, you are correct about hectares being harder "to defend". Ranching is much different from subsistence farming, tho. Been there, done that, and have the T-shirt to prove it. We only had 120+ acrea & keeping two-legged vermin under control was...interesting. Bloody poachers! Most of it was fallow & scrub or wooded. Great for habitat & hunting.

An acre of land under square-foot crop production can & does produce an abundance of food stuffs. The key is knowing how to rotate crops properly to avoid depleting the Earth. That and knowing how to composte if animal manure isn't available. AND knowing what crops will grow in ones region and/or are indigenous.

Someone said goats? Yippeeeee! Goats: Milk, cheese, meat, "wool", organic composte fortifier, and Weed Whacker. They can also be taught to pull carts. Their horns make great lances, too. One ram to three or so ewes is plenty for a small family. (I don't prefer line breeding and would want to know someone I could out-breed with.)

Yes, people coming into a community and demanding changes to an established way of life is the pits. Geese kick up a ruckus & racket. Sorry you can hear it a mile away in your luxury manse with 1/2-acre manicured lawn & gourmet herb terrace. There's always hope for them, tho. They might barter a few culinary herbs for a knit scarf & mittens.

Why do so many rural people think people who live in cities are weak and stupid?! You live in a fantasy world. Plus how can 320 million people in the U.S. all live in the 'country'? How? Does the boonies have a viable economy[s] to keep them and the U.S. afloat? Absofuckinglutely not.

And stop with the fear porn and out of control paranoia. It isn't doomsday or some post-apocalyptic place where I live [a big city], not by a long shot. We aren't all dodging bullets, foraging for food lmao .....I mean seriously, WTF? There are obviously a lot of people in this country and elsewhere who haven't been properly socialized growing up and haven't learned to get along comfortably with millions of others of their own species. The thought of living in any place bigger than say 50,000 people scares them.It's ridiculous.

If shit happens, we deal with it just like rural people. And you should realize a lot of the shit you see on the news, TV, movies is bullshit. They HYPE fear and chaos.

 Quoting: Fingulas


A) Money.

B) Infrastructure maintenance

Right now, my garden gets tilled up front by pigs. They also fertilize it. Then, outside of seed, my garden only costs me labor. Setting up a hydroponic system is not cheap on the front end, and requires continuous maintenance. As we de-industrialize, those materials will be harder to come by. Not to mention that hydroponic systems rely upon electricity to keep the water filtered and circulated. My gardens are watered by the clouds.

I grew up on a 60 acre farm,, nothing special, but you get used to and it becomes nice. I now live in the city and would trade it for the country in a second. Financially that wont work unfortunately. The City just sucks everything is close but theres so much less freedom, catching busses, get across the city then back the other way then this way.

Keeping chickens is easy and a person doesn't have to run a dairy farm to keep a milk cow.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 28210306


the problem with this kind of thinking is that yes, if you were to only have some chickens, that would be easy.

add to that all the other really "easy" things to do like chop haul wood, "throw seeds in the ground" (and watch the animals eat them), haul water, deal with your garbage, do the dishes, keep things sanitary, get food, grow wheat, hull wheat, grind wheat (if your wheat survives).

sure all these things are "easy" when taken on their own divorced from the reality that you will need to do at least 50 of things "easy" things per day.

day after day after day. year after year. ya, sure, chickens are easy.

i only have 5 acres and i've been working at it 2 years.
and i thought having a garden would be "easy"

all those seed packets say "easy to grow".

everything sounds so easy.

seriously people, you better start learning how to do this stuff like yesterday.

i have so much ahead of me to prepare and learn.
it's mindblowing really.

but i find it to be fun to do as i like a difficult task that takes a lot of energy.

but this is not for the weak.
