SHTF isn’t just a modern phenomenon. Our ancestors survived many disasters. It’s best to learn their lessons. The Gila Cliff Dwellings are a great example.

Many people are starting to believe that somewhere around 10,000 years ago a massive comet colided with the earth and erased some serious civilizations that we are just revealing. Humans had to find any means of dealing with the onset of the ice age. 

Our people sought refuge in caves to deal with predators and the cold. 

While caves are not the cliff dwellings the idea is the same. 

In the mid-13th century, SHTF when a 24-year drought uprooted Native Americans throughout the U.S. Southwest. One band of the Mogollon (muggy-YON) people resettled at the headwaters of the Gila river.

There they built a fortress village in defensible cliffside caves. Attackers coming up the ravine and trails would be vulnerable to rocks thrown down by defenders.

From the clifftops, attackers would have a difficult time getting arrows or sling stones into the caves and over the walls.

A well-chosen, defensible homesite and good natural resources helped this Mogollon band survive and thrive when SHTF. Visit the Gila Cliff Dwellings, and see what lessons you can apply to your own prepping.

Your Relocation or BOL

Whether your gameplan is to buy a piece of land and live off the grid from now on or to have a piece of land that you can bug out to, you should consider some version of relocation. 

It helps to consider these things that the Mogollon tribe considered with their cliffside caves. Not to say you need cliffside caves to live in. However, you can buy a piece of land that is strategically placed. The idea of moving away is so you dont have to fight the masses.

That doesn’t mean you shouldn’t be prepared to!

Bonus: Root Cellar That Can Be Used as a Bunker

If you can’t afford the box culvert option you can look into is building a backyard root cellar that can be used as a bunker.

If you want to learn how to build a backyard bunker like your grandparents had, without breaking the bank, then check out Easy Cellar.

Easy Cellar will also show you how a veteran, with only $421, built a small nuclear bunker in his backyard.

I’ve been sharing our Sudden Homestead journey on Youtube these last few months. In today’s new video I share our 2020 homesteading plans including our chicken, turkeys, ducks, geese, goats, sheep, rabbits, gardening, canning, food preservation, and more! Are we crazy? MAYBE! 🙂 I explain how we started fully homesteading during the pandemic and our long-term homestead plans and goals. Because I’m chatty, I also share about running a business and homeschooling during the pandemic as well. I recorded for FOUR hours and have TWO super long homesteading for beginners Q&A videos coming up as well! Be on the lookout for those! In the meantime, you can watch all of my Sudden Homestead videos here https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WlzfjI-e4PI&list=PLqJamx0rwybsEV0T-msWGCetH5Y4iy7Ld

Stop watering your garden! In this video, I show how to make a hugelkulture garden bed, using the stuff I had on hand. Using tips I’ve learned from the Back To Eden gardening method, lasagne gardening, and many other methods, I’m applying permaculture techniques like these as I build the garden and amend the soil on our new farm so the farm can work for me instead of me having to work for it. This gardening method builds up the soil structure into a giant sponge. Because It holds moisture so well without becoming waterlogged, you’ll find yourself needing to watering your garden way less. In fact, after using this method in my garden for five years in Seattle, I’d built up the soil so well that during a summer-long draught last year, I only had to water my garden twice. Conserving water and saving time? Sign me up!
