Hi Ranger Bob I have lived in Wells Nevada for awhile did not like the cold weather -30&-40 % so cold the propane froze! so we moved to az. been happy and warm in our cave house. But you mentioned Buying land in Nevada, If you have not found your survival Spot yet you might consider here in Az. It is a lot safer than California. And I have a piece of land I would let you have cheep. not far from our cave house. if interested contact me at [email protected] happy prepping, Mountain Scout.
