Not looking for home addresses or anything, just curious what kind of elements or other perils you may end up dealing with. Where I am at (norhtern ca.) the summers are hot but the winters are mild (no snow). Only thing that worries me about being in the woods here is mountain lions (not really worried) and rattlesnakes.

Sandusky,ohio right on the shores of lake erie. Usually pretty decent summers can have some hot days though, but winter can be brutal at times.

In washington, wet is the killer.

from Oct - June everything hear is soaking wet 24/7.

If it's not a fresh rain, it's damp air.

New England. We can have rough winters, but we don't have much in the way of natural disasters or dangerous wild life.

If I might ask, where?

I grew up in Northern Wisconsin, and we have family land and a cottage on Lake Minocqua, obviously in Minocqua.

I live in Utah. The winters can be fairly cold, but nothing as brutal as the midwest or canada. I do live in a desert though, so summers can be harsh as it doesn't rain a lot. We've been in a drought for a while now, along with the rest of the western US.

There is also the close proximity to the Yellowstone volcano.

Aside from drought, there isn't much in the way of dangerous wildlife or natural disasters. Yellowstone erupting would be horrible, but chances are it won't happen in my lifetime.

Im originally from Toledo winters there can def. be pretty brutal. I moved to eastern KY last year hot as hell in the summer and the winters arent nearly as bad as they are back in OH. Nothing but coalmines and mountains here

Hawaii.

I think the main challenges are isolation. If the boats stop coming food would run out fast. I have about an acre of land and it rains a lot so I think I could raise enough food. The neighborhood is good and perhaps I can get some neighbors to help watch each other.
