I'm a city dweller who thinks that I'm probably in the wrong place if I'm looking for maximum survivability. I would like advice on areas to live near Portland the have the following characteristics that I (or you) believe would be great to live from both a family perspective as well as a survivability perspective. - Within reasonable driving distance of Hillsboro (no more than about 45 minutes) - Can get high speed Internet - Can get 3+ acres and a home under $500k - Has land suitable for a big garden - Area suitable for chickens or other low impact animals - Has a sense of community - Strong Christian faith / values in the community - Would be great to know if there is a "guns in church" community there (see other thread) - Local food supplies for what I cannot / do not grow myself - People who depend on themselves, believe in self sufficiency and minimum government is great - Preferably has decent public (or private) schools - Would be great to have kids in the community, for both my kids, as well as I think kids ground you Where do you guys live that you think is great? Where would you like to live? Can I find the quality of life I strive for, a more self-sufficient lifestyle (think: food / water / resources locally or on my own land), local citizens that love our liberties (including gun rights), and a faith based community? Does such a place exist in this state?
