I am currently looking for preppers who want to  share what knowledge and information they have learned that can help others. Examples are what went well and what did not if you used practical application of your preps. What are some valuable essentials for prepping that are affordable and reliable? How can a group of people form a compound and how has it work for those that have done it or are in the process of doing so.  Have any new creative ideas that you would like to discuss and maybe apply?

The Eastern NC Prepper group is a over 100 member group for anyone wishing to become more self reliant aka preppers that live in eastern NC (however the group is open to anyone). This group meets every 2nd Saturday every month except December.

Objectives

The main objectives of this group are:
- Networking with fellow preppers
- Advancement of the art and skill of prepping
- Dispelling some of the myths and stereotypes of preppers.

Rules

The group is fairly causal about rules. However we do have them they are:
- No religion
- No Politics
- Turn off cell phones or put them on vibrate
- No bashing groups based on sexual, racial, age, or religious alignment.

Pretty much use common sense and act like a adult. Remember even if your off in a corner making comments, you never know who is listening and don’t assume certain stereotypes just because they are at the meeting. You are there to learn about prepping and networking with fellow preppers.

NOTE – Meeting will be at the Raven Rock State Park, we will meet at or around the big shelter just as you get into the park (first parking lot it will be on your right). Also we will be walking to Raven Rock, this is a 2.6 mile hike round trip.

Agenda

- Opening of the meeting with general Q&A
- Donations
- Show and Tell
- Mind, Body and Soul of a Prepper – How to be fully prepared while enjoying nature walking to Raven Rock.
- Small group networking
- Feedback and Closing remarks

New group starting and looking for people willing to jump in for the long haul. There’s a LOT to be done, so you need to be not only interested in a new start, a new beginning, but a new adventure with like minded folks who just want to live in peace as long as there is peace in this country, and be treated equally, not discriminated against because you’re different like I’ve seen so many other groups put limits on the types of people they want. We don’t care if you’re Christian, Muslim, atheist, straight, gay, bi, your skin color or what station you hold in life right now. In our group, the poorest will have as much as the richest, and everybody is expected to pull their own weight, like working in the gardens for instance or hunting. If you want to eat, you have to pitch in. Anyone 16 and over can vote on any issue that comes up, and for the first year or so, there  will be many issues without a doubt, so everybody’s input and cooperation is vital. Again, the group is new, so we need skill sets of many kinds, and we need honest reliable people who want to live peacefully without discrimination, and for the goal of survival. This is no church, nor cult, just regular people wanting something different than what we see and deal with everyday. The adventure is yours if you’re ambitious and willing to contribute all you can and teach all you can, and a group of strangers will become family. If you’re interested contact UnitedPreppers [at] groups [dot] facebook [dot] com or shrimpburger [at] hotmail [dot] com for more info.

I’ve not been on this site for very long, yet have noticed there are not many postings from some of the lower population areas. Probably because there are less people there but certain low population regions are where the preppers live or have moved to as part of their prepping strategies. So it is to some of those lower population strategy preppers I am reaching out to.

The specific areas which I am making reference to are from Central/Eastern Washington State over through Idaho State and going into Montana State a bit. Sort of just East of the Cascades  and West of the Continental Divide.

There are a few of us long term preppers up here who have met and for some time now have gotten organized together. We are trying to join with other long term preppers or invite them to join with us. We believe long term preppers are seasoned and savvy enough to get the drift here and figure out there is more to this than what is being posted. There is no real need to go into any further explanation other than to say just drop me a line at my email address below.

There is no harm in inquiring and it might just be what you still need to balance out one of the  most difficult parts of long term prepping.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, April 19, 2014 at the Old Funeral Home, 663 14th, Port Orford, OR 97465.

The main topic is “Reuse, Repurpose, Recycle – Ideas for everyday use and for when SHTF.”. We will discuss ways to turn trash and junk into useful items. Lots of common items we come into contact with regularly are useful in more ways than just what they were designed to accomplish. Bring along an item to discuss and share your ideas. 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.

Hey all,

Recently came across the site and noticed a lack of folks in my area. I am open to meeting others, and organizing bulk buys, sharing purchasing resources, all in the name of working towards a cohesive retreat group.

I live on 3 acres outside of a small town, with my property located in a national forest in a private HOA with pretty relaxed rules. I have begun purchasing the manual tools associated with gardening, and am forming the property into what will be a microfarm so that I can grow, AND preserve my own food instead of always purchasing.

Hit me up a libarata [at] yahoo [dot] com, or PM me, whatever!

My name is Zac, I am a SGT in the us army and am currently stationed in Washington. I will be moving back to my home town of corona CA (part of Riverside County.) I’m very new to prepping, I made a survival bug out back and a few box’s of Meals Ready to Eat. And that is the extent of my prep thus far. I have basic survival skills, some first aid training, and weapons training. Pretty much what would be expected of army training, haha. If there is anyone actively engaged in prepping I would love to exchange info, and perhaps form a prep group in my area. My email is zackery [dot] dunn [at] mail [dot] com. Just shoot me an email at anytime and we can go from there. I have made contact with a couple of people through this site, but have so far haven’t had any real commitment. Look forward to hearing from you.   -Zac

I’m an individual looking for a community to join and add my effort to. Somewhere warm would be preferable, South of the M/D Line. I’m best with animals, both farming and hunting. Looking for a community in an area or with members who have thriving small businesses I might find work with as an Administrative Assistant. I can forward my resume to anyone interested. ki.ritter813 at gmail dot com.

And I don’t think that whatever is going to happen is going to give me enough time to get out of the area.

I need a bug out location, and while I could buy some land the location by itself would be no good.

I am hoping to meet people who can rely on me in the event of an emergency. Strength in numbers.

I have useful skills and I am looking to get some land. Would be great to get in touch with any local preppers….

Ive PMd several people here that talk about some really interesting projects around NH, VT. Excited to see what those groups have been able to put together so far.

So I thought I’d start this post and see how many active Boston area people we have here?

Hi, I have been prepping for about 6 years now….when I first started, I didn’t even know why….just a strong feeling.   Now I am pretty well informed and feel I am rightly justified in putting so much effort into preparedness…ongoing, a little every day.

I am a 58 year old single Christian woman living alone…(with  two kitties) It’s really concerning to me that I have no community (Christian preppers) with whom I can join to share ideas and hands on preparation.  I believe in a  post- trib rapture.  I would really like to join a group… I have no land but could sell my mobile home or move it to  join a Christian group.  I have 2+ years food, medical supplies, canning, food drying equipment, and many food preservation skills.  I garden, sew, knit, and a willing hard worker. I am self employed as a house-cleaner and earn a modest living.  Would love to be in a situation raising animals for food too.

I’ve been living off grid, with a group, in Arizona for nearly a year. It has been an interesting experience.

I highly recommend that anyone planning to live this life style independently, do so with a group, for at least a few months. Doing so will help you understand better how to set up your own place to meet your needs.

I have learned that I enjoy most of the aspects of living off grid, the solitude of this remote location and the slower pace of life being two of the best things about it.

Our power comes from a solar system of several panels and eight batteries.When the sun is out we have plenty of power to run most things. Toasters, microwaves, washers, and power tools require the use of a generator. While the generator is running, it’s plugged into the battery bank to maximize the cost of the gas by keeping the batteries fully charged. The generator is also used on sunless days when there is not enough light to keep the batteries charged.

We temporarily have to haul our water until we get a well in. The trip consists of pulling a 400 gal water tank on a trailer, nine miles into town filling the tank and then pulling it back. The roads are rough as they are not paved and some are not even graded. The water only costs $4.00 to fill the tank, just one penny per gallon. At home we have two more tanks, one holds 250 gal. and another that holds 1500 gal.

It may sound difficult and I admit converting to a new way of life was a challenge at times. Now however I’ve gotten into a routine and things go smoothly except for the occasional problem.

Going off grid in a rural, remote area has its difficulties and its  rewards. Being able to see the Milky way and not have your thought interrupted by loud neighbors, sirens and alarms are among my favorites. Well worth the the challenge!

Apr 022014
 

We would like to form a p. r. e pers group in the Inland Empire area. We are a Christian family, not doom and gloom but just believe in preparing for whatever may happen. Husband is still in the mil.it.ary (Jack of all trades). We had been preparing for over 3 years now. We have a lot of ideas we’d like to make happen, and we believe that it can be accomplished with more people to make it happen. We are looking to buy a piece of land somewhere and start working on it. Gardens, shel.ter, self de.fense stuff etc. Well require once or twice a month training and meeting and may increase ounce we start building our shelt.er.

Here’s what we are looking for:

- honest and reliable people
- Mil.ita.ry Ve.ts
- also looking for people in the medical field
- Engineers
- Handy mans, general contractors
- Christian people, family, age doesn’t matter as long as you know how to fend for yourself and others (should situation calls for it).

If you are interested, please reply with an em.ail address. Would prefer if you have hush ma.il or 1791 Em.ail as they are much safer than Gmail or yahoo accounts from prying eyes.

God bless!

Looking for like minded people in the Wichita falls area. I have been tasked by my group with responsibility of finding additional people to ensure a group capable of overcoming anything over the horizon.

We need people who can be depended on to not only acknowledge the need for prepping, But the motivation to prepare. Not just bullets and tactiCOOL gear, But the critical necessitates to survive the struggles when the SHTF. Skills such as Medical, Security, Communications, Agricultural, Mechanical, Logistics, Gunsmithing. You can never have to much knowledge.

Single persons or entire families, As long as everyone does their part.             Survival is the goal, It cannot be done alone. And having people you can trust to keep not only you. But your loved ones SAFE. For Contact please contact paladin9171(AT) gmail(dot)com. For whatever reasons I can post but unable to respond via preppergroups site.

Greetings,

As the title reads, we are a Christian family (3 plus one dog) considering to relocate to a friendlier community and wanted to see what’s out there. Have been prepping for a couple years now and TRYING to open our neighbors eyes to strengthen our area only to no avail.  In a SHTF sitch eventually we would be overrun or have to BO.   Since we are considered preppers, it’s only logical that we consider our options.

A little info on us.  Mid forties, strong back, jack of all trade helper.  Have supplies, tools, personal security supplies and common sense.  Will provide more information upon request and sharing yourself.

Considering Idaho, Montana, Utah and ?

Strength in numbers and knowledge prevail.
