Are there realtors out there who cater to the survivalist, as in focusing on hunting cabins, retreats, and remote locations? I could swear I saw mention of it somewhere awhile ago, I'm just at a loss now.

If I had the money to spend I'd zero in on some of the Idaho properties. Though limited listings, Maine is interesting as well.

Ideally I'm looking for two plots. First would be a primary residence set on acreage in/around an area with with adequate population, medical care, and modern conveniences, etc while the other serves as a secondary hunting/bug out cabin somewhere rural, like perhaps towards the Quebec border of the lakes/mountain regions or butted up to a state or national park.

The primary residence is to be set up conventionally in terms of survivalism, ie: defensible, clean water source, mature land, food/supply storage, self-sufficient energy, etc...

The bug out cabin being essentially like the listing you posted(iirc) on another thread. Vast acreage, no frills, and reachable via atv/snow machine or on foot.

Yeah, that was the one I remember.

Price is definitely a concern. Not looking for a rural Beverly Hills, but at the same time I don't mind investing in my own Walton mountain, either. lol

But, I'm curious. Is $1k an acre is typical in Maine? If so, that's not bad.

Anybody have any cheap building plans for a camp? I'd like to start building this summer, but I can't transport many materials to the job site or leave them there since it is 100+ miles from my primary resident.

I'd eventually want to use it as a base to build a more self-sufficient building next to it.

I'm fine with framing the place out, doing the electrical outlets and lights (maybe have power from the street in preparation for installing a solar and wind combo kit), and running the plumbing once I have a well and septic in. I have never done any roof work, so resources on both roofing (think I'll go with corrugated metal for life of the roof) and installing a rainwater casement system would be cool.

Thanks.

Hmm... That second listing is interesting. Is the structure okay? Seems a little less than square from the photo. But if not, it's not bad.

Obviously, the more land, water, and remoteness thereof the better, but I'd say 5-10 acres on the primary residence and 20+ on the bug out cabin are preferable. Really depends on where it's situated, though. Both residences butted up to parks or private land(ie: hunting parcel or commercial logging forests) not likely to see development are ideal, both to preserve privacy/remoteness and as an evacuation route in the case of emergency.

 Check out the 'owner/builder' forum. It's amazing what people have built for very little.

Great forum idea here by the way.
