    The online prepper community is, like the rest of the Internet, the target of scammers & predators. From time to time the admins here are made aware of people posting on the site who are targeting preppers in the hope of selling them places in communities that don’t exist or real estate deals that are nothing more than scams.

    We do our best to investigate the warnings, taking the offending posts offline while we do. BUT, it’s not easy trying to get the facts from authorities re: ongoing investigations – or even getting them to confirm an investigation is in progress. Some of these ‘warnings’ talk about ‘a friend of a friend’ or ‘someone I know’ with little or no detail – making getting to the facts & the ability to verify any claims of wrongdoing by the poster, almost impossible.

    So do yourself a favor – before parting with your hard earned money – check out posters before parting with any money. Ask to talk with others who are happy investors/members, ask to visit these places they are selling – do your homework! The Internet is NOT a safe place & scammers prey on those who are naive, desperate & afraid. Don’t be a victim.

    We continue to try & keep this site as safe as we can, but predators will always find new ways to try to part you from your money!

    Hi Everyone

    I recently moved to western sydney and was hoping to talk with other like minded people in the hope of sharing ideas and skills with the potential of starting a group where plans can be strengthened to ensure safety i Ln the event of something happening.

    I have been prepping for a while now with the main focus being on food, water and learning more skills.

    I’m now looking into land options and hoping to find a few others who wish to discuss ideas and options and look at doing this as a group. Safety in numbers.

    If you want to have a chat please email me.

    Before I discuss what we will be doing I wanted to talk a little about us. We are a group of preppers who are centered around learning skills for self reliance. We meet at least once a month around the Indianapolis area on the first Saturday of the month. We have been meeting once a month for over a year (closing in on two now). We have an active base crowd close to ten people.

    This event will be on 3/4/2017

    This time we will be taking a look at turning an alternator into an alternative means of producing energy. In this case we will be attaching it to a bicycle.

    As usual this event will start at 1 PM and I will be there until 4 PM, but you can come and go as you please. The event takes place at a private residence, so staying later will be up to the owners. The last hour will be for general preparedness questions.

    If you are interested in going please RSVP with me at the following email address.

    A few things.

    • I believe in climate change.
    • I don’t believe in hidden planets hurtling towards us & our doom.
    • I’m not a rascist.
    • I’m tolerant of those with religious beliefs while having none of my own.

    If these statements rule me out in your eyes, please don’t bother spamming me or trying to bring me around to your way of thinking. Just move on.

    If you are okay with my statement, drop me a line & we can discuss self-suffiency & living in very trying times.

    Hi, my name is Cory. I’m 35, live on the Plateau and am a former soldier, an avid gardener, a brewer and a prepper for several years now. I am looking into organizing a prepper/survivalist group/community in the City of Montreal, and wish to meet other like minded people, anglais ou francais, who wish to collaborate and discuss this topic. If you’re not willing to meet and discuss, or open to potentially planning for possible economic, environmental and/or climatic cataclysms in the near future than don’t bother replying. I am only interested in meeting serious minded, mature adults, who are well informed, open minded and knowledgeable about survivalism and prepping in general. If this sounds like you, and you wish to network and possibly meet with other like minded preppers in Montreal, then please send me a reply and introduce yourself.

    Looking for a prepper community within a reasonable distance to DFW.  We are looking to relocate for a career opportunity and want to find a community or development that is like minded,  We would like to build or purchase.

    I was told there was a community south or east of DFW that surrounds a lake and caters to preppers.  Anybody familiar with that group or have contacts?

    Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, February 18, 2017 at The Umpqua River Inn and Suites, 45209 State Highway 38, Reedsport, OR 97467.

    The main topic is “The One Thing”. We will be discussing the “one thing” you can do to be better prepared, the “one thing” you wish you had during an event, the “one thing” you wished you knew how to do and more… SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

    This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help.

    Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

    Are there any active preppers on Whidbey Island. I very interested in exchanging skills/knowledge and share some ideas. We don’t have to meet although that is possible. I have various skill sets and I continue to learn. Just jeave a message.

    All,

    I am new to the prepping lifestyle but based upon the current atmosphere in today’s world, I believe that it is the smart course of action. I am a law enforcement officer in a fairly major New England city and have purchased a fairly large property in NH recently. As an LEO I have receive top notch training in firearms and defensive tactics- I am fortunate to have trained with many current and former special Special Forces members and have gained a great base knowledge of firearms to include rifles, shotguns and handguns, defensive and offensive maneuvers, medical training, etc and have also had the chance to practice much of this knowledge on the street. In addition, I am an outdoorsman by nature. However, I have not done much in the way of actual preparation as of yet (food storage, water storage, etc). I am looking to locate a group of like minded, sane, focused individuals who wish to plan for the potential issues that lie ahead. I believe that I could be an asset to a group and would like to share my knowledge and assist with the defensive training that would be needed in exchange for knowledge of gardening, farming and other aspects. If nothing else, a group of outdoorsman who enjoy training together would be beneficial to all of us.

    Hi, Im from Montreal. Since years I am thinking of leaving the non-sense life of sleep-work-pay bills and the sick beat of the city. I am ready to move and I have money on the side, and a business that can give me enough freedom to start a “off grid” project, buy a land, of whatever the plan is. I want to meet people with motivation and a way of thinking close to mine. I am quick, I learn fast, I have a lot of life experiences. I have motivation, energy, strength, I don t take drugs or have dependence problem. I am a good hearted and very generous person. I believe in God and have a strong spirituality, but I am not radical, I keep my faith for my self or for the ones who want me to share it with them and I respect the faith of others. I don t even where a cross. I want to meet clean and strong people for a project, not some hippie new agey opportunists, or left radicals. I am ready to meet people anytime. Contact me n.emond @ outlook dot com for more infos or discuss. Another contact: n.emond (at) live dot fr. I speak perfectly french and some spanish.

    Can t wait to meet new people!

    Hello, we are looking for families or individuals to join our group in the event of a crisis.

    We have housing infrastructure in place for around 20-25 members on roughly 50 acres with gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. Everything is setup and ready to go. There is also a written contract in place to protect everyone’s interests.

    Our members our expected to have at least a year supply of food, other supplies, personal defense and ammo. New members are given a timeline to acquire food and supplies to be fair to existing members. Everyone must be an asset and not a liability.

    Please reply only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Sandpoint, ID.

    We don’t meet in person right away, only after learning more about each other first through emails.

    If you would like to contact us we prefer if you use an encrypted email address such as Protonmail or Hushmail just for a little more security.

    If you are interested you can email us at js47783 [at] protonmail [dot] com

    Look forward to hearing from you.

    Hello.  Hope this doesn’t get me tagged under the extreme caution… I’m only mass posting this on most of the options because I haven’t had a whole lot of activity.  I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there that would fit well with us so here goes—

    We (family of 4 myself36/wife35/son13/son6) are located in Maine.  We live on private 30 acres on a long dead end dirt road.  I believe that my property would be very defensible in SHTF with the right people.  We are currently doing many advanced preps that i will not go into.  We have a field started for garden/pasture approx 4 acres.  We have a large barn.  Starting to raise meat rabbits and chickens and will get goats in the spring.    We are also doing other medium scale things to our property to help with agricultural production and self sufficiency.    I think that it is important to be well rounded in my preps by having quality tactical gear, arms, ammo, ect. and important items to be able to charge batteries and other misc things like doing laundry, along with stocking up on other important items like food, canning supplies, tools for cutting fire wood ect.  But all in all none of it will amount to anything if I do not have two things in place… one being our ability to grow, raise, and preserve our own food and the other defending what we have at SHTF.

    Currently we plan to have one other family join us when everything falls apart.  We are in need of someone with real tactical combat experience.  (ie real Military experience) I’m not talking about someone who has been through boot camp and never deployed.  I am hoping to find an experienced military man (with family?)  that can train with us regularly before shtf and also help plan for strategic defenses of the property.  (this could be things like preps to purchase like 4 pallets of razor wire if you get my drift.)   Also a medic would always be needed.  Aside from that I honestly think that some other local friends that i know that are prepping would be just fine if we needed more bodies.  All in all we are very well rounded. We make our own soap. Can fix vehicles, tinker, do carpentry, farm, ect.  I plan to have 4+/- families at our retreat after shtf.

    Some basic requirements I would have would be regular biweekly/monthly training meetings, maintaining a years+ supply of food, byo AR-15 with ammo.  Always would welcome help ‘on the farm’ if you can make the time.  Heck i have 4 acres to plant so you could help and harvest and EAT  too.  I am not doing this to make a living, just want to learn to walk the walk the hard way before it is a necessity.  If qualified and relocating i would be willing to rent our other house out to you.  We are not looking for any free loaders before or after shtf.  Everyone must carry there own weight after shtf and before… well if we don’t work we don’t eat.  I would assume you would have or find a normal job to support yourself unless you have a pension or want to try to make a living farming here.

    Both families are genuine bible believing born again christians.  Although i myself am very much against the tide of modern day christianity and have only recently tried to start to go to church.  I have been a believer for 17 years and have a strong faith in Jesus and a very fluent bible knowledge.  I do not state that to segregate.   Well, I’ve probably said too much about my plans, but i am hopeful that it will help bring forth some people who have some serious skill to join us.

    Oh, if you already live in Maine and want to plan to bug out with us (instead of move close by)  that could work too as long as you still would hold regular meeting/training schedule.  Hopefully if nothing else this leads to a life long friendship.

    Feb 022017
     

    We have a well established group of good decent people and an excellent retreat site.  We have a medical team including a doctor and a nurse but we need someone who can go out with the tactical team to be our first responder out there with us.  We have a very sweet deal for you and your family if you qualify.  You’ll have a hard time finding a safer environment, better people or a better retreat site.  You will be extensively vetted including a background check and will need to be prepped or get prepped up.

    If interested contact me at…

    Im new here but long time prepper. Prior USMC, currently working in surgery with grad degree. Heavy into aquaponics, pulling the trigger on 75 acres within 6 months. Im hoping to find other individuals that can bring to the table substance and knowledge. Im well versed in Faraday. My wife, two kids and i attend a Baptist church every sunday and most Wednesdays. God is key, but we are expected to do our part as opposed to depending on the govt.

    Feb 012017
     

     

    Currently I am forming a group, taking one year to set it in motion. We have been scoping a place, plenty of fuels and resources and very few people. We are up to three members, but can realistically do up to eight. So any serious Inquires can be made, but we looking for those who fit our group. No power hungry know it all types. We will do larger projects by vote and order of importance. We know we are not planning a holiday or a outing. I am up for trading ideas and thought’s.

    As a prepper I see a lot of people wanting to stay in a particular area, which is their right. Obviously they are not really willing to adjust or adapt. People wanting to stay in a area are dangerous, mainly when things hit the fan, all the sudden that person will generally try to bring 20 famioy/friends in a group not made to support that many.

    Sounds harsh but it is true. By cutting ties, and only by cutting ties will a group survive. I myself am looking to go to a complete different state, so as to not be bound by my ties here. In the end I realize I cannot be responsible for everyone. I can warn them about things I can look around and see what is coming. Am I expected to take those who ignored my warnings and share my safe Harbour.

    Remember you can’t be nice if you really want to survive, you must contribute as a group and suceed, or fail. We all know the price for failure.

    Hello, I have recently begun prepping just in case. I personally believe in addition to being prepared yourself it’s important to be apart of a community. I’ve been contemplating purchasing some farm and hunting land in Arizona as it’s cheap (I’ve seen as low as $500/acre). As I’ve been looking it occurred to me it might be worth seeing if there are others looking to do the same, or have done it already. I’d love advice on good locations and I’d love to get some land near other like minded people so we can have a community if things get bad. I’m also open to building out a smallish community (3-4 homes) on a large plot of land and set it up for off-the grid living. Would be a place to prep and practice farming and the like as well as nice retreat from the city (well as long as we have them anyways 🙂 ).

    Jan 282017
     

    A few friends and I have started looking for a change, mainly because we have gotten older and we don’t want to be a bunch of old fart preppers.
    My other half and I have been looking for aplace that is adding people (couples) in and we wanted to stay in Minnesota but things have gotten to exspensive for us here to buy and with being divorced I can’t get any credit mostly because I always paid cash.
    We have found wooded land in eastern Minnesota and I’m looking for another couple or two to split with payments and setup their own off-grid small house and a few animals like goats and chickens, a small garden and maybe a commun kitchen.
    This my thoughts I am hoping to work with true to their own life people on this.
