I'm a lawyer. And a former U.S. Marine who is ready to head for Chile. It's over here in the former republic, but in response to your inquiry.
It's YOYO time buddy. If you can't secure a couple of acres by yourself then you spent too much time in the military taking orders and not enough time thinking for yourself. (YOYO: "You're On Your Own")
It's easy to find land. Lease it with an option to purchase, with the leasehold payments being applied in whole or in part to the purchase price, all of which should be determined prior to signing anything. And have a COMPETENT lawyer review the lease. It doesn't cost much for a simple transaction like that. Remember, as a general rule, lending institutions do not loan money to buy land, so you should be able to leverage into something and be able to handle it financially. Write it up so that if you default the seller cannot come against you personally for a deficiency judgment. (Jurisdictions vary) Get an option to renew, but you should be able to pay it off relatively soon. (I know, it's a shock to actually own the place a person lives on, but some people can handle it.)
Focus on soil, soil, soil, and water, water, water, as well as clearly defined boundaries so you don't get into a boundary line dispute. Figure out how the land drains during different times of the year. A woodlot is nice, and a stream or creek is nice, but not necessary, and may even invite intruders. You can't beat a good well. Check out the access and if the road into the place is public/county, or if it is private. Find out if the road is plowed during the winter. Check out zoning if applicable, building codes, sanitary and enviromental. Don't get hung up on tactical considerations as if you're building fire base Trinity or something like that. Being who you are and what you believe, you probably will not be a good candidate for re-education or, better yet, "dialogue", so I'll be so bold as to say that you and you're family will go to your eternal reward, if applicable, early; or you'll be moving out with little or no notice on foot, so have good boots, etc. (Sounds nuts doesn't it? ("Light in the ass" is how we used to refer to in the old days.)) (You place might even be seized because you're just another damn Krulak that won't knuckle under.)
There is no being "grey" or being under the radar or thinking that any of us are going to make it through this without taking casualties. Lots of casualties. 'Nuff said. The criminals in government and their fellow travelers know who you are and where you live, and they hate you.
Betrayal being the oldest theme in the human experience, don't expect loyalty from anyone, family included. That's just the way it is.
Forget about the "elect" Christian Zionist Roman Catholic hating Survivalblog "American Redoubt" Calvinists who are so hooked on their religious supremacism, and themselves, that they are convincing people to move to the intermountain west where the soil is poor to nonexistent for the most part, water is very scarce, decent jobs are few, and as folks say in Montana, it can be "poverty with a view". And remember the new player in all of this. Drones. Lots and lots of drones. Piece of cake for the central government keeping track of us out here. And another piece of cake to kill us off. (Say, how about them Afghans? Something to learn there??
Stick with your family and avoid alliances unless and until it becomes absolutely necessary. Then you won't have to deal with annoying, non-essential issues like hurt feelings, who drank the last beer? etc.
Get an amateur radio license, or at least learn how to operate on VHF and HF (Very High Frequency; High Frequency); and learn morse code, even if it's very, very slow. People who won't do this are lazy and it's a good indicator of their motivation, and I won't go near them. It's big deal, like knowing how to keep you rifle operating and your feet in good shape.
Admittedly, I'm a horse's backside most of the time, but my ego, the prophecy business and boogie men aside, and just looking at the facts, we are pinned down so to speak, and day to day it is "danger close". You do not have time to begin courting people, and even if you did, it's too high risk, distracting, and takes up too much time.
I was told to accept one's death in order to maximize one's chance of survival.
Sounds paradoxical, but it makes sense to me because then a person can think more clearly and act decisively. Who knows, you might end up being surprised.
Best regards to you and yours, and believe it or not, I can come across as normal in public.
Ad Majorem Dei Gloriam, and remember,
