Okay. Here is the scenario.
You, my lucky Zed Eradicator, have won the lottery. Yes, you have won the big one. When it is all said and done you will walk away with at least $100,000,000. One Hundred Million Dollars my friends. You know the Zpoc is coming. You have about a year to prepare. You've got to live with in the law up to the point the Zpoc hits. Your purchases must be with in the law and reasonably attainable in today's world and the nation you choose to reside in. Weapons that are unattainable or illegal in today's world are still illegal and unattainable in this thread. How will you prepare?
"The Rockies" is too broad. You want to make sure you are in a wet valley otherwise you are going to be stuck with high desert country and lack of sufficient water.
I live in the "Rockies" 100% off grid. Trust me
One of my friends gets enough catchement run off his roof from rain and snow, he can keep his 15,000 gallon under ground water cistern filled. He figured in a severe drought, he'd still have enough water to sustain him for 1 1/2 -- 2 years.
Grey water recycling def. Showers & Laundry. If you are doing kitchen water, I'd suggest using a rock and sand filter to get any grease out, cos that can turn pretty funky quick. I just bought another wringer washer. It looks like Rosie the Robot from the Jetsons. LOL
ALL our water is recycled except black water. That goes into a poly tank, I suppose we could plant some vines near there to start a low growing fence.
i like prime predator's way of thinking - a few additions:
Some improvements (prime's silo, fencing etc).
