Thank you for sharing.

A simple guard tower should give a good view over your area despite the bushes. A guard dog and some brambles surrounding the place should also work well for avoiding surprises.

A more mountainous area would not be bad either though, however if you look in places like that I prefer something that is not too steep or rough. Rocky soil might also be a potential issue.

Flat areas have the advantage of being more easily subdivided, farmed and built on.

You're welcome. Those are very good points. I like the idea of having easy roof access, especially with a fairly flat roof. Maybe with some sort of short perimeter wall as well around the roof, kind of like a patio. This would be pretty effective, especially on a two-story place. I like the idea of having an office on a second story for a better view of the mountains.

That is true, a lot of mountain property is tricky to work with. It does vary a lot, you can even be in a valley and get somerthing very steep and tricky to manage. The flat and level land is the easiest to divide up and maximize usable land.

I don't think Fort Davis is too rugged, but I'll have to see. The properties I have seen are usually not square, though.

Sandbags ?

Doesn't have to be perfectly square however in order for us to be somewhat isolated and the place defensible a decent area per circumference ratio would be nice.

Btw I would prefer if you did not mention the locations you look at in public in the future or even use BitMessage for it.
