SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on a new military vehicle museum in Wyoming. (See the Wyoming section.)


This property caught my eye.  Not only is it in a remote and very defensible locale, but it also has amazing line of sight (LOS) for any ham radio operator:  20 ridgetop acres on the southern end of the Island Plateau region that I’ve mentioned in two of my books. It is listed at $112,000.

New Wyoming Museum Displays Hundreds of Military Vehicles. Here is a quote:

“As of now, he’s acquired over 475 vehicles, 270 firearms and close to 750 artifacts, and he’s built a museum from the ground up by spending $100 million of his own money. And while it may seem hard to believe, he never intended on compiling such an extensive collection.

By the time Starks had accrued dozens of vehicles and strangers were calling his number, he started thinking about a permanent spot for his collection.”
