Good article over at Survival Blog.
Again, being inconspicuous is easier than advertising your presence.
My original neighbors are all being forced to sell their homes here in Australia. There are real estate FOR SALE signs up and down my block. We may be a ghost town on a mountain here eventually the way things are headed. All the people who saw my shelter components brought here during construction will be far away soon, down in the valley, in another state where their employment opportunities are better or even in another country.
That's good timing, because it was this year I had scheduled the start of my massive camouflage operation to hide my entire shelter so cleverly you couldn't see it if you were standing on top of it. I've been saving up polycarbonate Christmas trees since 2002 planning to knit their branches into wire meshes to make sheets of "overgrowth" which from the air will make my entrances appear to be simply dense brushland in an overgrown field. In combination with natural ivy, I have been planning to make my little backyard project vanish forever, all three acres of it. Firehold Bravo is simply going to fade away as if it was never there and anybody who specifically could have remembered it will be long gone.
We have a creeping flowering ivy back there that I have had to fight every single week to keep under control. Left to it's own means it would rapidly conceal everything in my backyard as easily as the jungle does a Mayan temple in South America. It's only because of my ceaseless effort I have been able to prevent it from doing just that up to this point.
The best strategy is to appear to have ceased to exist. The superior strategy is for your enemy to not even realize you are there.
