Or you 'off-base'? probably not, though I'm not exactly sure what you mean. I have significant areas of business to handle before I can leave the city in a proper fashion. Some involve 'business', others involve dealing with the gov't, and others still concern decades of accumulated -- well just say accumulation :-); and others are simply personal.
When I leave, I would like to sepnd some time in different areas, where I already own land and where I don't. I need to see if the community is a 'fit', if I am going to have to deal with communtiy. If I go 'remote' enough, that won't be an issue, my homestead will be my respite from the larger world, not a part of the larger society; though I will still interact 'off' the homesetad. I do intend 'some' traveling.
You were clear about your intentions as opposed to what you thought about mine. I have to remain solvent to pay the price for my desires of the future. Nothing is given to me, everyhting will be prurchased, so how I handler this economic collapse is of the utmost imposratnce to my future.
I'm not sure if I was clear in answering your question, feel free to foolow up if you please......................
