safe hippie home, survivalists, preppers, Oregon, Idaho, Montana, Wyoming, Utah.

From: "J. C. JOHN" 


You're already living close to one of the best areas for complete off the grid safe living.

Many remote rural areas within 100 miles of you are perfect.

1. Fresh unlimited water.

2. Natural free food if you learn what's edible.

3. Easy areas to raise excellent gardens.

4. Ample wild game for fresh meat.

5. Similar thinking people abound out of city.

6. Huge abundance of firewood for winter heat.

7. Cheap rural land.

8. Excellent wells for great drinking water. You can use a manual well bucket in a 6" well. No electricity needed.

9. Fishing is great if you're near pond, lake, stream, river.

10. Very safe compared to some areas you mentioned.

I'm sure many other reasons I can't think of now.

Shutdown political pandemic is new reason to investigate remote living.

I remember 1960s hippies (hillbillies) who were afraid of nuclear war, silent spring,…
Hippies evacuated San Francisco and New York to safe rural homes.

There are still some hippies in Oregon, Northern California, and farther north.
East coast is surrounded by hills and hillbillies since the 1700s Virginias, Carolinas, Appalachia,..
Most hippies died from drug overdoses or failed to reproduce due to sex diseases, or got jail such as Charles Manson.
Some offspring are still dying fried brains from music, opioids, vape, tobacco, alcohol, meth,…

Leaving real estate bargains in Oregon and other hippie rural areas.
Being bought by survivalists who will make the mistakes of the hippies.
This has been going on for hundreds of years.
Most hippie hillbilly areas get bought up and converted to modern as the hippies die off.

Negro riots were common in the 1960s that I remember well, and are returning.
Motivated me to avoid multicultural areas.
You can get close to bad areas
but not actually in bad areas.
In Chicago the fairly good areas can be a few blocks from bad areas.
More distance is preferable, though.

By study you may be able to find an area with good odds for survival fairly far from problems. 

Clean air, water, food. 
Mild weather - average temperatures, rain.
Jobs - good economy.
Schools and colleges.
Less crime.
Less multicultural civil wars.
No toxic dumps, or pig shit farms nearby.
No high taxes, high prices.
No large population dependent on government handouts.
the counterculture of the 1960s,
 a youth movement 1960s
 hippie came from hipster beatniks
who moved into New York City's Greenwich Village
 and San Francisco's Haight-Ashbury district.
Hippie communes, where members tried to live the ideals of the hippie movement,
continued to flourish.
On the west coast, Oregon had quite a few.
Many hippies would adapt and become members of the growing countercultural New Age movement of the 1970s.
While many hippies made a long-term commitment to the lifestyle,
some people argue that hippies "sold out" during the 1980s and became part of the materialist, consumer culture.
 Although not as visible as it once was, hippie culture has never died out completely:
 hippies and neo-hippies can still be found on college campuses, on communes, and at gatherings and festivals.
Many embrace the hippie values of peace, love, and community,
and hippies may still be found in bohemian enclaves around the world.
1994 a new term "Zippie" was being used to describe
hippies that had embraced New Age beliefs,
new technology,
 and a love for electronic music.


 are following in the footsteps of hippies in the 1960s
who set up communes to separate themselves from what they saw as a materialistic society,
and the survivalists in the 1990s who were hoping to escape the dictates of
 an increasingly secular and oppressive government.

driven by a fear of imminent societal collapse
 escalating series of natural disasters is leading to some type of environmental cataclysm.

Preppers, though are worried about no government,
no services,
no civilization.

 turned her home in rural Virginia into a "survival center,"
complete with a large generator,
portable heaters,
water tanks,
and a two-year supply of freeze-dried food
 in case of emergency, she could survive indefinitely in her home.
And she thinks that emergency could come soon.

"I think this economy is about to fall apart,"

A wide range of vendors market products to preppers, mainly online.
They sell everything from
water tanks
survival skills.

Conservative talk radio host Glenn Beck seems to preach preppers' message w
 "It's never too late to prepare for the end of the world as we know it."

"Unfortunately, given the increasing complexity and fragility of our modern technological society,
 the chances of a societal collapse are increasing year after year,"
interest rates, margin calls, stock market collapses, bank runs, currency revaluations, mass street protests, and riots,"
 Third World War, mass inflation, currency collapses, and long term power grid failures."

"With our current dependence on
the electric grid
 a collapse scenario can easily emerge,
with a belief that the end is coming,
 out of the individual's control,"

 the Industrial Revolution of the 1830s
 led to the growth of the Millerites,
the 19th-Century equivalent of the preppers.
 charismatic preacher Joseph Miller,
many sold everything and gathered in 1844 for what they believed would be the second coming of Jesus Christ.

Many of today's preppers receive inspiration from the Internet,
devouring information posted on websites
 The Economic Collapse blog out of his home in northern Idaho.

"Modern preppers are much different from the survivalists of the old days,"
You could be living next door to a prepper and never even know it.
Many suburbanites are turning spare rooms into food pantries and are going for survival training on the weekends."

Like other preppers,
Snider is worried about the end of a functioning U.S. economy. 
millions of Americans are on food stamps
many U.S. children are living in poverty.

"Most people have a gut feeling that something has gone terribly wrong,
but that doesn't mean that they understand what is happening,"
Americans sense that a massive economic storm is coming
they want to be prepared for it."

So, assuming there is no collapse of society
 — which the preppers call "uncivilization"
— what is the future of the preppers?

Rawles is the Senior Editor of,
a blog on survival and preparedness topics.

 "the grandaddy of survival blogs".
He concentrates on encouraging family preparedness for many possible threats toward society.

 In his various writings, Rawles has warned about socio-economic collapse


X-class solar flares taking down power grids,

terrorist attacks,

and food shortages.
