As Mountain Biker stated in his post to start this thread, this is information gathering of locations. Many will be nothing more than vacation homes, but some are stating that they want a safe location in case of civil unrest.
Financier Robert Johnson has stated he bought land on the border with Quebec to stay safe in case of civil unrest.
Movie Mogul James Cameron has moved his family to a 1,000 acre farm in New Zealand.
The Bush family has purchased 1,000 acres in Paraguay
Is this the tip of the iceberg? Could it provide us with some early warning that the situation is headed south?
Just another data point for us to watch.
