Notes for Friday – September 12, 2014

SurvivalRealty.com has some interesting listings. SurvivalRealty.com helps connect survival-minded individuals and families with knowledgeable real estate agents, wherever their retreat destination. They feature properties as diverse as a game preserve lodge in South Africa to a cabin on a remote lake in Saskatchewan (bring a floatplane!) or as close as the mountains of Wyoming to the hills of Idaho.

Look at these: Africa, SK, Wyoming, and Idaho.
