Preparedness Property in Southwest Colorado For Sale

All Dressed Up with Nowhere To Go ?

This mountain parcel is a perfect retreat destination for someone now living in Phoenix or elsewhere in Arizona.

Because the desert state of Arizona doesn't have any real mountain ranges, combined with a serious lack of water and summer temperatures reaching well over 100°, the entire state is a poor choice for a long-term survival retreat. This hideout is nestled high in the Rocky Mountains of southwest Colorado (approximately 450 miles from Phoenix) and so a 6 hour bug out drive is required to reach the site. Having an established and well-stocked retreat ¼ day drive away is far better than being what is sometimes referred to as “all dressed up with nowhere to go” (i.e., you and your family trapped in a large city with all your precious survival gear and food and a million zombies trying to freeboot it).

The 3 acre parcel is located 20 miles northeast of the small town of Durango, Colorado - far from any major population densities, potential nuclear strike targets, nuclear power plants, coastlines and national borders - yet close enough to a small town for groceries, shopping and other amenities like a good hospital and major airport. Even though the parcel is accessible year-round, the remote mountain location provides for serious seclusion and solitude. Grid power and phone are nearby. The land itself is very heavily treed with large pines and aspens which gives it excellent privacy along with a lifetime supply of firewood.

High and dry describes the property well, as it slopes enough for excellent drainoff, and there are several nice level spots for a cabin or camper trailer. There is a strong-flowing year-round spring nearby and easily accessible that supplies free, clean, and unlimited water, and other springs and creeks in the area provide for back-up sources. Or you can have your own private water well drilled. Wildlife abounds as deer, grouse, and other small game are seen on the property and all throughout the area often. Elk hunting is also prime here. In fact, almost every kind of outdoor recreational activity can be done right nearby including fly, stream, shore, boat and ice fishing, along with boating, ATVing, four-wheeling, and snowmobiling.

Expensive preparedness supplies can be safely stored on site when the owner is away with the addition of either an above-ground shipping container or underground root cellar or fallout shelter (ask owner for ideas), or it could be stored in a storage unit in the nearby small town. Having the majority of one’s survival stuff stored on-site or nearby allows one to travel light, fast and inconspicuously when the time comes to “get-out-of-Dodge” for real, thus maximizing the chances of a successful drive.

One could establish a decent survival retreat quickly and fairly inexpensively with the addition of a small KOA style cabin, a camper trailer, or perhaps just a Yurt for starters.

Asking only $62,500 or acceptable offer.
