Doomsday Prepper In Florida? Need a "Bug Out" Location in Florida?

Real Estate Agent with NorthStar Realty Services

Are you a Doomsday Prepper in Florida? Do you need a "Bug Out" Location? For those of you who have no clue what I am talking about, Doomsday Preppers is a show on the National Geographic Channel.

The show is about "preppers" who are preparing for a local or national disaster. Some are prepping for an earthquake along the San Andreas Fault, some are preparing for F5 Tornadoes, some are preparing for hurricanes, a terrorist attack, economic collapse, etc...The point of the show is that these people are preparing themselves by stocking up food, ammo, gold, silver, you name it, they stock it. They want to be able to survive should access to much needed resources be cut off for an extended period of time.


The thing that really caught my attention with this show is that the expert preppers suggest that you have a "bug out" location. A "bug out" location is basically what our grandparents used to call a "fallout shelter". It is a place of refuge. Away from the general population. A place that can be easily protected and self sufficient. Now when watching this show, I think some of the scenarios that people are prepping for are a little far fetched. 

However, here in Florida, we do have the possibility of a potentially devastating hurricane. It is not too far fetched to have a massive hurricane run over this state and cause tremendous amounts of problems. When catastrophe strikes, problems arise quickly. 

Lake County Florida would be a great place for a "bug out" location. We have one of the highest points in the entire state. If we flood here, well...I guess you should have moved to Georgia. 

But seriously, we have lots of vacant land that is still available that could meet your Doomsday Prepper Bug Out needs. Feel free to check my website, Platinum International Realty Group LLC for possible "bug out" locations. You will need to select the ADVANCED search option for vacant land.

Better to be safe than sorry!! Happy Prepping!!

Great clip art. Good luck and congrats on your subsequent post and featured blog. I have my own bug out location, a storm sheltor for those hurricanes that come every 20 year or so.

Very interesting subject matter for your blog and even more interesting is that the Discovery Channel found it and called you. So when are they going to publish an interview with you, or better yet have you guest blog? AR can be quite powerful and blogging does work. I get this question asked all the time. I can tell you that without blogging my phone would never ring!

I have to say that I had to log back on to see what this was linked to :).  I have been remiss on my blogging lately because of some things with my parents & family, two new grandchildren within the past year.  I intend to get back at it hopefully by the end of the year everything should settle back down :).  On the side of this article I have flown with a pilot friend that actually builds these such shelters in Florida.  He lives in Jupiter.  Do you build them or?


Congratulations on the feature & the Discovery Channel!!  Happy Blogging & I do believe everyone falls to the internet for their resources these days, time is precious & the world is too big not to...  Best Wishes!!
