In what has become an increasing trend among Hollywood stars, past and present, to flee the decaying state of California for greener pastures like Texas, Tennessee, Florida, and Nevada, one Hollywood superstar is taking it a step further.
In the last couple of years, stars such as Mark Wahlberg, Joe Rogan, Scott Baio, and other have fled the Los Angeles area, and in most cases the state of California due to high taxes, strict regulations, and spiking crime and homelessness under the feckless leadership of Gavin Newsom.
Now Josh Duhamel, the star of Las Vegas and Transformers is taking it one step further. In an interview with Inverse.com, Via The Daily Wire, Duhamel talked about what he is doing, and where he is going if things go sideways: “It started with one little cabin in the woods with no electricity and no water. We would go and we didn’t wanna stay for more than a day or two. You could tell the mice had overrun it. It was disgusting,”
When the property next door became available, the idea for a compound-like setting began to foment in his head. He continued: “I bought it for like nothing; this beautiful little idyllic cabin on the water,” he said. “Suddenly I had 54 acres out there. So I had two cabins, one with no electricity or water. They both have wells and electricity now, but they’re both really small … We shaped the land. We created trails through it. I’m actually growing crops out there.”

The 50-year-old actor turned survivalist first planted clover and chicory to entice deer to feed on his land ostensibly so he can hunt and eat them if necessary. From there he moved on to corn and pumpkins, with plans for even more. he continued: “It’s called a food plot. My idea is that I want to be able to hunt a deer. I’m not a hunter by any means, but I have this crazy fixation on what happens if sh*t hits the fan in LA and I have to take my family out there and live off the land,”
Crazy fixation, or simply being proactive? California is going further off the rails by the day with crime and homelessness, and he wouldn’t be the first to take his family and flee. However, he may be the first to be a self described “doomsday prepper”. He said: “I’ve become a bit of a doomsday prepper, I guess. So I’m learning how to hunt. I have wells. We have water. We have fuel. I’m building something so if things do go south, I have a place to take my family. And I believe that we could live off the land out there. I’m not very good at it yet, but I’m getting there,” he added. “It keeps my lizard brain active.”
Duhamel is one of a growing number of celebrities and liberals to see what is going on around him. California isn’t safe, and he has a family to take care of. If things do go south as many think they will, Duhamel will be well prepared to ride out the storm in North Dakota with his family.
