The title is a little misleading. !st of all I honestly hope I'd never have to "run" anywhere but I have been giving some serious thought about buying a small piece of land, bug out land hopefully is a function it will never have to serve but anyway it's about an acre & 1/2 and borders Hoosier National Forest in far Southern Indiana. It's rural w/ a capital R but it's been surveyed has electric and water and a new gravel road and level building site. No structures on the property but no restrictions either other than no trailer homes older than 5yrs allowed. On a good day it's a 6ish hr drive. Any suggestions as to the pros & or cons of living next to a Nat'l forest? The distance? Growing up in Chicago I've always had a pretty strong aversion to the State of Indiana in general wich I now attribute to ignorance. I rekon because really all I knew about it was passing thru Gary. I gotta say though, I took a ride that led me thru the Southern part of the state and it is wooded with really nice rolling hill country. Anybody familier with the area? All thoughts are welcome. Thanks.
