I have been reading your page for years. The wife and I have decided that it is way past time to get out of Kalifornia (we live way out in the desert). We originally looked at the Redoubt areas. I quickly learned that my body simply could not handle the cold weather. I wish I could but it is too painful. We are now looking at East Texas. (Not Austin) I was hoping you may know somebody that could write an article or provide more information regarding warmer climates for places to retreat / homestead/ ranch. Your Redoubt would be my first choice, but my body just cant handle the cold. Thanks for the great Blog and God bless. – R.
HJL’s Comment: I’m not aware of any in the east Texas area. I do know that there is a redoubt like movement in the Ozark mountains. Look up Pastor Joe Fox on YouTube to see some of his stuff talking about that. He is not the only one in that area, but I am familiar with his work.
