Thank you, I did not completely read your first quote, thank you for rementioning it. I read 2 of the 12 blogs and he does mention some good stuff. I will read through the rest.
I did like the use of natural and manmade obstacles. I can see how the berms and sloped land work well. I have done similar to keep the quads and motorcycles from tearing up our place. I hate the idea of berms allowing bad guys to have cover should I be in a situation where I am having to defend the farm but it does slow down vehicles. I could see doing this on the OP's property as well. Make things difficult and make it look unattractive (No treasure to steal) and you have yourself a defendable location. But, always leave yourself an out.
