Truly rational people understand and value the importance of being a part of a resilient community. The community is where we find comfort, protection, and support in difficult times.
People may think that as long as they completed the first five components of a resilient plan B accurately, they are set to live happily ever after. Of course, that is a possibility, but those who manage to set up all of that in a good neighborhood will always be in a better shape assuming that they will maintain a friendly relationship with their neighbors.
It's a well-known fact that some of the greatest social tragedies of our time are loneliness and isolation. That is why communities are essential for a satisfied life.
However, we have to be careful; there are many examples of self-sufficient communities that started with great ideas and intentions in mind and end up in the misery of failed communism.
In my last four blogs I have been writing about where to set up the plan B location, and only now do I get to write about the next step that we have to implement after we settle on the choice of property. That next step is to establish a resilient home.
It is imperative that this place will be designed to withstand anything that nature will throw at it and provide comfort and protection for you and your loved ones.
I hope that my plan B place will be used only as a place for vacation and fun but let's not forget, it is a plan B. If one day I have to go there, the chances are that something went wrong with my plan A and plan B better be a good one.
Let's go over several important aspects that we have to consider in establishing a resilient home.
Recently many people from developed western countries started buying large parcels of land or farms in places like New Zealand, Chile, Argentina or even their own country because they think that one day they might need a getaway place. They think that in a case of war, social collapse, or great disaster they will be able to escape from trouble and feed themselves off the land.
Buying farmland is an excellent idea. And those people who are quietly buying up land around the world in so called safe areas are doing the right thing.
Anything that is done to become independent of the system is very smart, including growing your own food. The truth is that one day many of those people will fail miserably at feeding themselves off the land.
If you take choosing the right location seriously, and you think that someday existence of properly executed plan B may benefit you, then you need to start planning and select the safest area for you and your family.
During times of peace and prosperity, it is effortless to dismiss many threats, but they are real and rational people should calculate in advance what other people fail to see or choose to ignore.
We are all different and may like different things, and "perfect weather" can mean entirely different things to different people. Some people may prefer a cold climate, others like it mild, and some people even like the hot, sweaty weather. Some of us hate rain, but for some, it might be very comforting.
However, the majority of people tend to shy away from extreme weather conditions. A good climate is something that's comfortable and enjoyable for everyone and does not limit our day to day activities.
