Should Tennessee Be Ranked #1 For Survivability For Preppers That Want To Survive...

•, By Michael

If you are planning to relocate in anticipation of the extremely chaotic times that are rapidly approaching, there are four primary factors that I think people should be focusing on.  First of all, you will want to go some place where you will be surrounded by like-minded people.  Secondly, you will want to avoid locations that have a high population density.  Thirdly, you will want to avoid regions that are at high risk of experiencing natural disasters.  Lastly, it is important to consider how the area you are considering will fare during a nuclear conflict.  Of course these are not the only factors that need to be considered, because choosing to relocate to another part of the country is a complicated decision.  Ultimately, you need to make whatever choice is right for you and your family at the time.

I have written quite a bit about these things over the years, and so my attention was immediately grabbed when I came across an article on entitled "The List: Best Places to Live Off-Grid, According to Experts".  The state of Tennessee is ranked number one on their list, and I found that to be quite interesting.  Below, I will share some of their reasons for ranking Tennessee first, and following each reason I will give some of my thoughts…

-"abundance of natural resources"

This is very true.  Tennessee is tremendously blessed with natural resources, and that is a huge advantage for those that want to live off-grid.

-"with an average rainfall of over 50 inches, homesteaders living off-grid have ample access to legally harvest rainwater"

A lot of states, particularly in the western half of the country, have made it illegal to harvest rain falling from the sky.  Thankfully, Tennessee doesn't have such a law, and plenty of rain falls throughout the year.
