Surviving Doomsday:  Location, location, location.

Why Preppers are running to the hills of Tennessee

KNOXVILLE, TENN. November 19, 2013 /PR Newswire/- Are you preparing for doomsday? Maybe not, but several of your neighbors, friends and family are doing just that.

Many Americans feel that the country is in a crumbing condition and are anticipating a doomsday scenario. This has them running to the mountains to seek the amenities of remote land. Owning land provides the potential for much of the necessary components of survival like food, water, security, shelter, and energy.

According to the book Strategic Relocation by Joel Skousen, the Cumberland Plateau is one of the safest areas of the country to live. This has more people interested in buying rural Tennessee land. Natural disasters, man-made events and global unrest can trigger panic and disrupt our social or political order without warning. Preparing for such emergencies can help you and your family survive if ever an event occurs.

On a daily basis we are speaking with people that are preparing for an economic or doomsday type of disaster. People are choosing our rural land and its many uses to prepare themselves and their families.”, said Don Busby, General Manager of Country Places, Inc.

For over 30 years, Country Places has been offering owner-financed land to those seeking a better chance at self-sufficiency and security without the barriers presented by banks and mortgage companies.

Prepping continues to gain popularity

With worldwide unrest, it is no wonder that prepping for emergencies including survivalist tactics currently dominates many blog comments and message board posts.

Survivalism used to be seen as an extremist practice but has moved more into the mainstream in recent years. A spike in sales by emergency product suppliers, camping retailers and army surplus stores is just one supporting indicator that Americans view this as a necessity of our lives.

Many people purchasing land, especially remote properties, do so while considering it as a retreat, or 'bug-out' property, for use during any abnormal event where fleeing to an alternate area is necessary. These survivalists, or preppers, realize there are a number of different scenarios, which will dictate exactly what will be needed and focus on a few key factors in an attempt to cover most all possibilities.

Country Places, Inc., based in Knoxville, Tennessee, has now improved several of their properties for those preparing for the worst. These properties will feature a strategically placed shipping container on a hillside location. Some properties will include improvements like terracing for growing food and raising animals. On these improved properties the company offers low down payments and affordable monthly payments.
