I’m still relatively new to prepping and looking for other preppers in the San Antonio area to swap ideas with or to form a little group. My email is aoan [dot] shu [at] gmail [dot] com .

Thank you for your emails concerning our joint mission here, they keep coming ))

We believe preppers tend to be “future thinkers and planners”  having learned to accept we will not always be immune to the repercussions of the many possible and certainly some very for sure events heading our way. God stated; the rains will fall on the just and unjust equally. Funny thing so does History when you review it. Notice in some regions the rain is hardly falling anymore . . . others places it is flooding. So nobody gets a pass on this.

For my husband and myself we have been reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded and equipped people and this has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning more and more why so few people ever end up joining together. So few have really done anything, like moving from thinking and planning to then actually doing something. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns, actions and results and honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster is very KEY to making it work and staying intact. Also facing the truth that unless all the members pull their own weight and maintain their own self-drive the inevitable human default nature of letting others do more while they continue to do less begins to creep in.

My husband and I are a married content prepped couple. It is just us two. No children at home, no hidden agendas to drag along grown adult children and their families, no forgot to mention extended family, no possible non prepper future mate to be added in, no mentioned later on about elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. That right there separates us from about 90% of prepper posters and talkers. They often want to save people who will not make the effort to save themselves. Sorry, we like staying alive so that does not fly with us.

Honestly though, we do not care to plan for the near extinction of all mankind; rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most historical crisis events, minimize the effects on us as per of such events and not become victims during them. In preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments, then results and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated very comfortable survival living conditions. Not in some nomad tent existence eating twigs and berries either. From what I see here that is better than most yet still not as good as a few others.

Being we search for wisdom then as preppers we grow, we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in. It never fully ends that we have accepted but we are darn close ;-). Our more recent step in our plan has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like accomplishments to then increase all our overall combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. As mentioned above some types have veiled missions to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not wish to be and have nothing to offer to boot. Yet others are planning to open their location to the needy and desperate just to be over run and become like them in no time. Then as usual so many have put aside so little yet expect so much and on top of that still cannot afford to get it done yet want to join with others who already have? Some offer their labor for room and board? Funny thing there is, the rest of us here will be laboring just as much while providing for our daily needs (room and board) so come again?? That just seems so not fair and not right to, so where does that leave you?

So if the above 90% might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us (thanks anyway). But if you are both willing and capable to be a big plus to a group then go for it. Through all this we have now established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. They already have a quality retreat location like we were looking for so we have teamed up with them and they wanted us and what we have done. Our thinking and planning was then matched by action. Thus they saw us as a big plus. Our current numbers are growing slowly because we all actually have standards, we do have in place the means with no additional building or group costs to accommodate many more. In other words this is group and retreat location is not a dream, a plan or a hope. It is a reality. In return when working together it must be accepted by all that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with other people. We believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with just ideas, plans and no hope. This final group involvement piece being put into place has also freed us up from searching and now lets us truly enjoy daily life.

If you are of the same mind that solid preppers really need each other now more than ever then contact us. If you are a interested (adult single, couple or family with older children) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for about 12 hours per day during a critical crisis event at the retreat to stand watch, help with needed chores and do so with a cheerful heart then drop us a line.

So if you sense the urgency to take action, wrap up a plan and put it to rest then ask God if this is something which could be right for you. We have private quarters for you and the entire infrastructure like water, sanitation, heat and to meet your needs. Basically you provide the rest. Sent us an email back and we will shift off this site to a more private line of communication. You will be required to explain what you have accomplished no exceptions. If you live [east of the Washington Cascades over to the western edge of Montana| as posted under categories then you will be considered. Otherwise move 😉

email:   cindygirl [at] hush [dot] com

We still see a lot of people starting out on the site and that is great. Do not give up and look to team up with others!

We are looking to find other like minded in our area. Also, hoping to move on the east side of Oklahoma off the grid.
We are family with almost 4 adult children and 4 younger ones.
We home school and half of us our vegan. (when the SHTF we would eat meat if it were the only food) But we do try to raise our family and leave  as little carbon footprint as possible. We would like people who are free thinkers, agnostic, atheist, Buddhist types.  (nothing against Christians, just not our cup of tea) We are hoping to build a very large green house to have produce year around and of course use humanure compost along side the rest of our compost.
Anyway, if anyone like minded is interested in finding a place to co habitat together, please let me know.

Hello all, I have been prepping for years. Thank God since i had lost my only income for a year. Fortune smiled on me and I was Blessed with over 200 acres of forested land just north of Boise, ID. My adult boys live up here with me and last night I decided people need help. I am building cabins on the property and decided people should be able to prepare even if they have no time. Just an Idea at this time. What if i market my property as a bug out location for those unable to prep due to time? IE. They can buy a cabin for the bug out, if need i can gather their supplies for the cabin? Of course it would cost something to do all this for them. Possibly building a community? any ideas on this? feel free to be brutal.

Please contact me if you are a central wisconsin group and you are still looking for new members. Looking forward to a reply.

The Idea of prepping is simple. What you want to prep for can make if complicated. How well you can prep depends on your financial situation. We prep for what I strongly believe will be an economic collapse of this country. No person, family, city, county, state, or country can operate outside of a budget forever. Sooner or later the bill comes due. When it does it will most likely make our U.S. currency worthless. Then the question will be how will you live or how well will you live. We prep because we want to maintain as close to a normal life as we now have accepting some changes we will have to make just due to the situation at hand, but it doesn’t matter how well you prep. In the end it will come down to how well you can defend it. Because their will be more unprepared people than prepared ones. When people start going hungry they will do things otherwise they wouldn’t do when instinct to survive kicks in. No matter if you go to the mountains or where ever, somebody sooner or later will stumble across you by accident or hunt you out deliberately. The real challenge will be can you protect the ones you love and can you protect the preparations you have made to insure you and yours survival. The greater the number in a committed family the better the chances of surviving are.
We have been prepping for almost 8 years now. Only 4 of us have mainly built to what a few have called a small piece of heaven. I don’t quite see it that way…LOL Its been a LOT of hard work, and a LOT of money to get as far as we have and I still see a ways to go before I will feel I’ve done my best to provide for my love ones and have provided all the means necessary to protect it. We are looking for LIKE MINDED PREPPERS who are looking for the same as we are. Prepping takes commitment. For family’s to join together it takes honesty, trust, and most of all respect. Communication is the key to all that and more. So to answer your question. What are you looking for?
We are a family of 4. we have been hard core prepping for 7 going on almost 8 years now. We have two acres along the Alabama Florida line. We are looking for like minded families who are already peppers or is severely interested in prepping. We are looking for families or individual(s) to join us. We are not looking to form a group but more of an extended family. One’s who would possibly move/live on site to share the work with us. Or help out on weekends who feel they may need a bug out location. We have added additions on to our house. We have turned a 3 bedroom 2 bath house into a 7 bed room 3 bath house. We are looking to do one more addition. We also have a mobile home which is almost completely remolded to house a family also. We want to place one more on the property also to house others. We have a extended stock of food. We also have over 100 chickens, 40 turkeys, They are housed in a 24 X 100 foot long pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s with tin roof covering the entire thing.14 hogs housed in a 36 x 36 tin roof covered pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s. With water ran to all animal pen’s. We have a 8 x 16 shed that houses 4 incubators and a bitty bruter for hatching chickens and turkeys. We have 50, 55 gallon food grade drums of grain corn for human and animal consumption. We have 50, 55 gallon drums of animal feed for our animals. We have a solar powered well free from the grid for water. We also have a complete solar system to power our entire house free from the grid. We have built a EMP proof room to protect the solar power components. We have a 25,000 gallon above ground pool that serves not only as entertainment but as a reserve water supply also. It has a screened in deck with a flat screen TV and DVD player for entertainment and relaxation, including a 12 person pick nick table. We have a 125 gallon solid fuel hot water heater. We have a 12 x 24 glass green house a garden area with a above ground sprinkler system. We have converted from electric to gas cooking with enough fuel to cook for at least 2 years. I have a shop area with tools, welder, cutting torch to build and fabricate what ever we may need. We are currently putting in a out door kitchen. We are installing a 6 foot fence around the property. We do have much much more. We have implemented back up systems for almost every thing We work hard! We are very neat and organized. We are looking for others to join us for I know a single family cannot stand alone. We will not accept any FREELOADERS. We do not ask for any financial help. Only that you provide what personal stuff you may need for yourselves. If you feel you can and want to contribute financially that’s fine. If you don’t mind working hard caring for animals and getting your hands dirty a little we just might be the ones for you. We are looking for like minded individuals that know what is coming in this country and don’t mind WORKING HARD TO SURVIVE IT OR DEFEND IT. We are dug in deep no plan for bugging out!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR LIKE MINDED PREPPERS.PLEASE HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THIS MEANS. I want to address some issues I have ran into. We are just down home good old southern folks. We believe in God, the Bible, Country, and the Constitution but were not going to beat you over the head with a bible. Yes occasionally I like to drink a beer but I’m no drunk. No we don’t want illegal drugs brought here or grown here. No I cant just up and come and get you if you don’t have transportation. Then blame me for your problems because you was not truthful about yourself or all YOUR PROBLEMS. NO were not providing some kind of retirement community. We all work here! We have had several visitors come here spend any where from a weekend to a week. All who have visited have wanted to join or come back. If we do not feel you are right for us its nothing personal. I had a vicious slandering attack against me by one simply because we choose not to let one come back. This people called them self “a prepper” I know this site was set up to help LIKE MINDED PREPPERS, get in touch communicate, and form groups. Sadly I have noticed its being used for much more than that. If you feel you are a LIKED MINDED PREPPER then email me at Knightmagic101 @ aol {dot} com. I will return your email with a cell number so we can talk and see where it can go from there. I can provide a couple of numbers so you can talk with one or two others that all ready live here or one who is planning on coming back to join. Any ways happy prepping and maybe I’ll hear from you…Thanks Rick. Knightmagic101 @aol{dot}com I have had a lot of people contact me I have enjoyed the conversations with all. I have noticed all most all have done little prepping or lack the resources or financial means to do any prepping. We do not hold that against any one wanting to join us. Here’s the key issue. Pets,… mainly Dogs. I’m sorry we cannot take in any one with dogs. Especially keeping them inside the house. We just cannot have people living in and around the house and others in other dwelling and all with several dogs. There’s to many problems associated with this. Sanitary is the prime reason. I could list many others. So no matter how well you say your dog is house trained or gentle it is. The answer is NO. NO DOGS or Cats. Besides who’s going to feed them in a SHTF situation. We can not take our feed for our live stock to feed dogs. IF You have a solution that you think will work run it past me. I’m not heartless to the love of animals. But for the safety and well being of all you have to draw a line somewhere. If you think you have a good idea run it past me Maybe it might work…as long as its OUTSIDE THE HOUSE NOT INSIDE…

We are a family of 9 just listening to God telling us to get ready for something big.   My husband and I live with our 6 children and my mother in a small cabin (my husband built in 2 weeks) on 20 acres near Newport WA.  We recently got a milk cow but can’t make cheese lol. We are just looking for like minded people that might want to help us build a little community of preparedness up here.  We would like to get to know you before we involve anyone in what we are trying to accomplish but could meet somewhere to eat or for coffee to talk and get to know each other first??  We just want friends that wont think we’re nuts, because we are very different from the world.  You will have to meet us to believe us. No joke.  We want to meet people like us that might be able to help us make cheese lol farm, garden, secure the land and in return we have maybe land for you to utilize for living, prepping, growing, ect… we are mainly seeking knowledge, friendship and Christ-like people to create what WE believe the bible was talking about when it mentioned ‘the Church’. We are tired of traditional powerless church. We want to activate His power through obedience and the number one commandment. LOVE

Husband, wife, 15 year old child, two dogs and cat living in an RV. We had a farmstead in Upstate NY but couldn’t afford to keep it. We would like to work on a farmstead of someone that would allow us to park our RV on a site with electric, water, and septic. I have strong computer skills with a Masters in Educational Technology, a Bach in Theology. Strong Faith in the Bible as God’s inflatable word. Could also help with tutoring children with my math and science skills.

I am a North East Edmonton resident with family. I am interested in corresponding and connecting with like minded families / individuals who feel it is IRRESPONSIBLE to not be prepared for sudden events / collapse that we all know can happen. I am interested in creating an Edmonton community that we can count on and gather together if SHTF, with contingency plans for different events, as there is strength in numbers. While I am not a paraniod individual, I do believe that our current culture is unsustainable and while I may not see socioeconomic collapse it in my lifetime ( I’m 45 ) it is likely around the corner for my children and theirs. If you and your family / group is on the prepping path, I would like to correspond and touch base with you to share ideas etc.

Thank you.

Howdy.

New here and recently back in SW NM. Got a lot on my agenda.

First of all, I’m hoping to network with fellow patriots/Constitutionalists, especially Christians and preppers. I’m a veteran of the Airborne Infantry and I’ve studied military history so I have some skills to draw on should the Cold Civil War turn hot out here. Unfortunately, I’m only now starting to get some food reserves built up. I mention all that just to let you know where I stand. I’m not looking to lean on anybody or be a parasite. I don’t take without contributing or giving back. When the SHTF I’d like to know where friendlies are in my area. You know the deal–safety in numbers; mutual defense, somebody you can trust on your flank.

Secondly, before the SHTF, I would like to join or start a home church/home Bible study somewhere near the Artesia area, possibly as far south as Carlsbad or north as Roswell. I believe the true Church (not the apostate church) will soon need to move underground, as it had to in most countries around the world for most of AD history. The time to make the transition is now, while some of our freedom is still intact.

Thirdly (and I mention this just in case, because it is necessary in my current situation) I am looking to buy a home somewhere around here. Not in a town or crammed too close to neighbors. Preferably with at least a few acres. Shop, pole barn or big garage is almost a necessity, too. Well water. Existing fence would be nice. Don’t know how much time America has, but I would like a place to raise my son and where the dogs can run before our borrowed time runs out.

If I sound like a radical wingnut doomsdayer, well, guilty as charged.

Thank you for your emails concerning our joint mission here, they keep coming ))

We believe preppers are “future thinkers and planners”  having learned to accept we will not always be immune to the repercussions of the many possible and certainly some very for sure events heading our way. God stated the rains will fall on the just and unjust equally. Funny thing so does History when you review it. Notice in some regions the rain is hardly falling anymore. . . So you do not get a pass on this.
For my husband and myself have been reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded and equipped people has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning more and more why so few people ever end up joining together. So few have really done anything.  Like moving from planning to then actually doing. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns and honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster is very KEY to making it work and staying intact. Also facing the truth that unless all the members pull their own weight and maintain their own self-drive the human default nature of letting others do more begins to creep in. In establishing our priorities we have learned some things, such as we cannot please all the so called preppers all the time and we

My husband and I am a happily married and content prepped couple. It is just us two. No children at home, no hidden agendas to drag along grown adult children and their families, no forgot to mention extended family, no possible non prepper future mate to be added in, no mentioned later on about elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. That right there rubs out about 90% of prepper posters and talkers. They often want to save people who will not make the effort to save themselves. Sorry that does not fly with us.

Honestly though, we do not care to plan for the near extinction of all mankind; rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most historical crisis events, minimize the effects on us as per of such events and not become victims during them. In preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated very comfortable survival living conditions. Not in some nomad tent existence eating twigs and berries either. From what I see here that is better than most yet still not as good as a few others.

As we search for wisdom and preppers we grow, we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in. It never fully ends that we have accepted but we are darn close;-). Our more recent step in our plan has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like accomplishments to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some seem to be critical of other preppers who look at things differently which to us says much about them. As mentioned others have some veiled mission to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not wish to be and have nothing to offer to boot. Yet others are planning to open their location to the needy and desperate just to be over run and become like them in no time. Then as usual so many have put aside so little and on top of that cannot afford to do it now yet want to join with others who have? Some offer their labor for room and board? Funny thing there is, the rest of us here will be laboring just as much while providing for our daily needs so come again?? That just seems so not fair and not right to, how about you?
So if the above might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us (thanks anyway). But if you are both willing and capable to be a big plus to a group then go for it. Through all this we have now established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. They already have a quality retreat location like we were looking for so we have teamed up with them and they wanted us and what we have done. They saw us as a big plus. Our current numbers are growing slowly because we all actually have standards, we do have in place the means with no additional building or group costs to accommodate many more. In other words this is group location is not a dream, a plan or a hope. It is a reality. In return when working together it must be accepted that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with other people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with ideas, plans and no hope.
If you are of the same mind that solid preppers really need each other now more than ever then contact us. If you are a interested (adult, couple or family with older children) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for about 12 hours per day during a critical crisis event at the retreat to stand watch, help with needed chores and do so with a cheerful heart then drop us a line.
So if you sense the urgency to take action, wrap up a plan and put it to rest then ask God if this is something which could be right for you. We have private quarters for you and the entire infrastructure like water, sanitation, heat and to meet your needs. Basically you provide the rest. Sent us an email back and we will shift off this site to a more private line of communication. You will be required to explain what you have accomplished. If you live outside the “center of the this region” posted under categories and plan to move this way then please just understand we will not do anything more than answer an email or two. You move first to prove your intent is more than words.     email:   cindygirl [at] hush [dot] com
We still see a lot of people starting out on the site and that is great. Do not give up and look to team up with others!

The company I work for recently purchased 120+ acres of land bordering state trust land in Arizona. We are in the process of purchasing another 200+ adjoining acres. We are going to be letting people use 1/4 acre parcels,  1/2 acre parcels with a few 1 acre parcels in our prepper compound. User will be responsible for obtaining and providing to us a background check, providing a resume for adults and a phone interview with a probable follow up in person interview.  There is already a community well drilled to meet water needs.  A 300 gallon water tank can be filled in 10 minutes flow and supply is great.
Our goal when SHTF is to establish a self sustaining prepper community with a mix of people from all backgrounds and experiences. We want nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors, teachers, military, farmers, contractors, preachers and more. By the time we are done we anticipate having 60-75 families using 400+ private acres as a bugout location when the need arises. Currently we have 1 nurse, 1 nurse practitioner, two former military, a general contractor, a farmer and a former state trooper (and their families) as well as emplyees from the company with various skills and their families.
Each person on their parcel will be able to pull up an RV/5th wheel, camp, or build a cabin etc . You can fence it your parcel as well. There is a community well already set up, power will be by wind, solar or generator on your lot. You will be able to start a garden on your lot, raise rabbits or chickens etc to help provide for your family. Come and camp or live there full time it is yours to do as you wish but when SHTF you will have a great bugout location if you choose not to live there beforehand.
We will be reserving a large portion of the land for community gardens, rabbit pens and chicken coops, and other food sources to assist with food for community members.  We also have plans to build a chapel, a covered community activities area, and more. Parcels will circle this area for easy access for all parcels.
All resources are on site from water, to heavily wooded areas to pasture and meadows. In a SHTF scenario not only will we be able to provide for the compound but will have enough rabbits and chickens as well as vegtables and fruits to hopefully barter/sell for things we can not produce ourselves.

Let me be clear here on this.  We are not looking to overthrow the government, take over the world or anything else.  We would encourage each resident to have a firearm for hunting and self defense purposes if needed but this is not a requirement.  The goal is a safehaven for members to provide for themselves and family when SHTF, or a nice quiet place to live, or vacation to camp etc until SHTF.  Once SHTF this will become a survival situation and we are trying to help make that as easy as possible for you but please do not show up with no knives, tents, sleeping bags etc.  You need to prepare for this ahead of time and have that sort of stuff easily accessable in a bugout situation.  If this is not possible let us know and we may be able to purchase it and store it on site for you.

There is a $50 non refundable application fee to be considered for a parcel.   You will be required to provide a copy of a background check for each adult person that will be on the property.  No pedophiles, violent offenders etc.  I will have my wife and kids there and this will be a safe place for them when SHTF so that type stuff will not be let in.  There will be a $50 monthly fee for 1/4 acre lots and a $75 monthly fee for 1/2 acre lots and $100 monthly fee for 1 acre lots. This money will be used among other things to add in community rabbit pens, rabbits, chicken coops,chickens, cattle, dig ponds to be stocked with fish, gardens and more plus community center area, community kitchens for those that dont build, extra water storage tanks and more.

If or when you are selected there will be a $500 fee to pick your parcel for any size. Selection will come in order of the fee being paid. There are some premium parcels that we assume will go first that back up to Arizona State Trust land and the one acre parcels. With no difference in the reservation fee we assume they will go first.  Two weeks after acceptance you will be removed from the approval list if the selection fee has not been paid or other arrangements have not been made.(we can work with you but need to know) We can barter for the $500 fee on a  few lots for some things.  Contact us with those requests and offers.

Do the math we are not doing this to get rich.  Our cost of the land once the last acquisitions are made will be probably in the $400k-500k range.  Even if every lot was 1 acre $100 monthly lots it would take us 10 years to get our money back out and that does not include all the upgrades we will be doing, animals, garden expenses etc.  We are doing this to give our employee families the best situation to be in when SHTF and we feel that is with a good group of people from all walks of life.

No freeloaders.  Once SHTF (and it eventually will) you will be required to maintain your own parcel, garden, rabbits etc as well as work on the community gardens etc  each day to ensure as a collective we can supplement when we need to for all members.

We are going to be looking for  a year round resident for the compound for security, and upkeep, take care of community rabbits and garden in exchange for a fee free 1 acre parcel and possibly once the lots are leased out a salary.  Parcel owners will be able to work out an agreement with that person for various things like raising your own set of rabbits on your parcel, spreading your rabbit poop on a portion of your land where you want your garden to fertalize it, possibly a garden and more.  We can provide the Rabbit hutches and assembly on your parcel for $175 each otherwise you will be responsible for assembly and delivery.  One buck and two does price is $75.  These will be well bred New Zeleand White meat rabbits.  They will be younger so they can be used for a while for breeding before .  I am sure you can work with him/her once we get them hired to actually process and sell your rabbits if wanted for some income to cover your monthly fees.

There will be sensible contracts to be signed for both our protection and yours.  Pretty much dont be a disruptive drunk, drug user or get arrested for a sex crime, or violent crime and not freeloading and you can stay as long as you want as long as your monthly fees are paid.  Do any of those things and unfortunately we will need to part ways.  If thats you please dont waste either of our times.
If you are interested please leave your contact info below and I will email you all the details or email me directly at (smallminers at yahoo dot com)

I have been doing survival since the 60’s, live in the Delaware Water Gap area of NJ and frequent the Kittatinny range out here hunting, fishing and living off the land. Looking for others with a similar interest to teach and hone skills for any disasters. What you may not know is that if you live on the island of Manhattan you may be in for a surprise if the S%$^ hits the fan. May be starting a survival class during the upcoming 2016 year in this area.

We are a Christian family of 4, currently located in Littleton, Co. We have been prepping for over 2 years, and feel like we are ready to contribute to a larger prepping community. I am a Navy corpsman Veteran, and currently a nurse. My husband has been in construction his whole life, and is currently now in electrical, and can build anything. We have been looking into buying land of our own before the end of this year, but can also contribute to land already acquired. Please contact me if we seem like a good fit.
