What to Expect


why Basic Life Training?

With global economic instability rising, and personal security issues taking center stage in the US, consumer demand is increasing for remote properties that offer security and the ability to be self-contained. This could include providing your own electric power, drinking water, food, and personal protection.  In other words, it’s the ability to live independently – in a self-sufficient manner – with renewable resources far from urban chaos.  Are you looking to acquire or to sell a remote retreat property?
