You Will Fall in Love with your Home, if You Consider Your passions

Your hobbies, passions, and enjoyment in a location will add to your love of your property.  This is true even if that hobby isn’t done on your land.

Doing what you LOVE makes you happier.

If you enjoy outdoor sports and great views, living in an area in Colorado or North Carolina may make you happier with your decision to live there.

We can be more specific here.

Outdoor Activities Could Affect Your Happiness

If you like to Mountain Bike or Trail Run, you will generally want some hills or more to ride bikes or run on.  If you love to geocache, you can do this almost anywhere, but if you prefer the wilderness caches, you probably don’t want to look in downtown Chicago.

Do you hike?  Hikers usually want to be “away from it all.”  You may want to be close to some awesome waterfalls that you can hike to.

Climate Effects Your Activities and Your Property

If you enjoy winter sports like ice-fishing, skiing, or snowboarding, it will be extremely difficult to do these things in Florida.  But Florida may be great for the person that loves to scuba dive every weekend.

If you enjoy gardening, but don’t want to fight the land, then you probably don’t want to live in Arizona.

Your Land and Soil can Affect Your Activities

Do you collect rocks and different minerals?  Do you enjoy polishing, cutting, and tumbling gems as a hobby that will second as an income?  You will want a location that will provide you the ability to do this.

Some Activities May Be Done Almost Anywhere

Hobbies like geocaching can be fun wherever you go if you aren’t stuck on your surroundings.  Other hobbies, such as reading or journaling need no special location.

Think About ENJOYMENT when You Choose Your Bug Out Location (BOL)

Please don’t forget the things you enjoy when you consider your bug out location.  Four years later, you don’t want to despise your land because it seems like non-stop work.

Mankind was built to work, but also to play.  If you neglect what you enjoy, you will be miserable, depressed, and will hate your property.  As a result, you will REGRET your decisions.
