I have never thought isolated locations were a good choice unless you’ve got an actual compound going with perimeter security. Back in colonial days the isolated homesteads were picked off one at a time by the Indians during the French & Indian Wars. In my former town, people in the village would see the smoke from the house burning but they’d always get there too late to save anyone. When we were looking for a BOL I wanted to be in a hamlet or small village setting so as to have neighbors for mutual aid.
