I have small isolated farm with large stocked lake, orchard, large raised bed garden, cabin, deer, next to state park. Am disabled, looking for stable, honest prepper(s) to take over what I began. Great spots for alternative housing such as underground, yurt, even RV while you complete ideal housing. Growing ginsing in 10 acre forest. Ample oak, hickory firewood. We would form trust to assure you control property when I pass. Unique opportunity. No drama, must live peacefully due to health. Must be honest, spiritual, hard worker. Have done most of the work; you help me complete it. Tom
To bad it's next to public land and in IL. Sounds great otherwise. Welcome to the forum.
unfortunately for a prepper viewpoint the property is too close to the St Louis metro area >>> and having it adjacent to a state park that's has regular recreational draw - makes it detrimental for a serious SHTF ...
you have to understand the differences between a homesteader and a prepper to see the disadvantages ....

Not really. I am located on the back end of the 1000+ acre Park which is completely private - no one comes to the wild, thick forest back. So, good place for hunting or cultivating ginsing. I agree about IL because most people are greedy closed minded fools, but that is true most everywhere. It is an unusual area in that you can see the three rivers unite - a sacred Indian site. It also has a warmer climate zone - 6A. Am growing figs, almonds, pomgranites. Hardly any neighbors.
I disagree - you do not know the facts. Preppers do not have to go to the extreme unless they have paranoid personalities. I believe a moderate approach offers most flexibility. And the back end of the 1000 acre state park is completely isolated. You need to know the details to be judgemental. Re St. Louis, it is separated by two rivers. Rovers would travel north. Nevermind, I am not interested in giving my land to paranoid preppers. Am looking for spiritual people with more faith than fear. People with ag skills who would rather till a garden than load a weapon.
A Watchman's heart skips a beat as he feels that infamous crooked grin start to appear as he formats his response, but he thinks maybe he will hold back …. just this once, huh?

Whatever. I liked your Hidden Content. Thanks.
It may look close to Saint Louis bit it is pretty isolated. I've taken the golden eagle ferry several times over to Calhoun county. If your in St Charles or Lincoln counties in Missouri this might be a good opportunity.

Worry about the things you can control, Plan for the things you can't
Lets say you interview me and my wife. We come across as honest, hardworking God Fearing Salt of The Earth types. You invite us to assist you and we move our stuff in and begin the hardwork.
At first, everything is peachy-keen and we all get along famously, then some signs start to occur that make you a bit puzzled, but we are sweet people and are able to smile and talk our way out of the odd things that you "think" you are seeing.
But then it gets worse, things happen that no one can simply talk their way out of but by then its too late.
We have befriended the local law enforcement and they like us so when we report you as missing, all the stories that we have told around town point to senility, and craziness. Sure, they investigate but as mentioned, all indications point to the fact that you went off the deep end and took off toward Tucamcari, or Tres Rivieres, or somewhere that begins with a "T" or maybe and "S"...we can 't remember which place.
Of course, all the necessary documents have been signed/notarized and confirmed by the local and state authorities and the land is ours.
