Looking for Land - Part 1 - Water

Stay tuned for the upcoming parts of this series--on heat/wood, shelter, food, sanitation, power, and more!

It's an exciting adventure, and at the same time it's also a bit intimidating.  Let's face it, relocating is a big undertaking.

BUT, it's very feasible as long as you do your homework ahead of time.

That's where this series of posts comes in.

We are going to walk you through a short primer on "What to Look For In Land or a Homestead".

In part 1 of this series, we'll start out with a quick intro and then jump into perhaps the single most important thing you can look for--water!


Basic Necessities to Look For




This was a brief primer, but for more details, here are some helpful links:

    Why no mention of rain water collection?

    Hi Ron, A couple reasons...For the vast majority of locations, rain is such a variable for at least part of the year, and you simply MUST have a reliable means of water. Second, I have concerns about what that distilled rain water is picking up in the air as it works it way down. Ground water has been filtered through the earth and purified.

    Rain water can be a great supplement if you need extra water for irrigation or something like that, but I never recommend rain water an a primary source of water.

    Perhaps I'm paranoid about water, but you simply cannot live without it.

    So that's the rationale. Thanks for asking!

    Not to mention that in some places you may be subject to fines and even worse if you collect and in any form store rain water!
