    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!

    My husband and I have recently moved to S Ga and are wanting to meet/chat, train, exchange ideas,  and possibly set up good rapport with surrounding groups for possible trade in the future. It’s been hard finding folks who live/enjoy the prepper  life style, so I’m thankful to find this site. we have only been practicing for a little over two years,  but my husband has been reading up on most of the skills for the past four years. Im in the medical field and he’s ex-military. We are both in our thirties with 2 children.  Our family are very laid back and easy going. We love to be outside, and we enjoy learning/teaching new skills and experiences. If you’d like to strike up a conversation, We can be reached by email at valentinarlopez [at] gmail [dot] com. Hope to hear from you soon.

    I am in Flagstaff, AZ and looking for a local group of people who are not religious zealots or drug addicts or dyed in the wool liberals who wish to learn from and teach others basic skills necessary to survive in relative safety and comfort under all sorts of negative circumstances.

    I have a spinning wheel and know how to spin fibers into yarns.  I know how to knit and crochet and I make socks, gloves and mittens.  I bake bread.  I dehydrate food.  I have some knowledge of building log cabins.  I have mixed and poured concrete.  I can make an earthen oven.  I have Red Cross first aid training and was a First Responder in California.  I taught stained glass for Lassen College and enjoy teaching and sharing my knowledge with others.

    Please reply if you have knowledge of a group near Flagstaff.  I would be willing to relocate, but funds are limited.  I do not need, nor do I wish, to live in or near a city.  I prefer rural living.  If you have info that would be useful to me in finding such a place, please let me know.

    I am on the line between Central and South Ga. S. of Macon.  Everyone keeps telling me I am a prepper.  I tell them I just live a different life style.  I live in the country and we (family) built most of our house.  When I wired it I used 2ea 100Amp lighting panels instead of just one 200Amp panel.  Then one panel I wired all of my critical loads.  The power for this panel came thru a 100A DPDT knife switch so I could use a generator.  Since I installed solar, it now comes in thru the switch and the generator won’t run due to neglect.  I wanted solar when I built the house but could not afford it in 1989.  I did however install a solar water heater and radiant heating.  I installed a water tank in the wood stove and ran the hot water to heaters with fans.  Later I put PEX tubing under the floor and used aluminum plates to distribute the heat into the floor.  I tell everyone I use a solar clothes dryer as we never have owned a real clothes dryer.  I get the funny look and then tell them it is a clothes line like my grandmother used to use.  I have 3 vegetable gardens, 2 freezers and my mothers 1952 canner (pressure cooker).  We can.  So now everyone tells me I am a prepper.

    Hello. I’m a prepper from Alaska that just moved to CO. I had to come to CO to help care for family. Prepping was part of everyday life in AK and I’m feeling vulnerable here without my support group. I would like to possibly find a prepper group here to be associated with. I live in the foothills and prefer to stay away from the large city so I was hoping to find a group located in the mountains that is open to new members. Just a brief note about me: I have advanced skills on my preferred sidearm (handgun), intermediate skills on large caliber weapons, urban or outdoor warfare search/combat techniques, combat medical skills; knowledge of greenhouse growing, stress management counseling, medicinal herbs (learning local plants); good at basic construction and learning advanced tracking. Overall, I am hard working and a fast learner. I have a Christian base but can associate with other faiths that have the same core values. I have acquired/built a stable residence for a temporary location that can hold me off grid (1 year) until I can get to permanent location, which is what I’m looking for. Please send me a note if you or someone you know is looking for new members. I am very cautious of people so please be patient if my responses or wanting to meet come slower than others. Thanks for reading.

    Being in Ministry it is very difficult and at times and hard to conform to what one and or others think are the proper actions for a reverend in today’s world. We like to touch base with others of Faith in West Pasco and or near by community’s within our age group 40+ about prepping .

    We stand firm that [1] God is first then our family.[2] Yes we are and continue to be preparing for what is to be end times political & world monetary and economical collapse. [3] I am and we are each as they say PPP (pistol packing preacher) fowling the Bible fist and then the 1st &2ndAmendments. So we are judged by many about how we feel and up hold our beloved Second Amendment Rights. We are firm and for that we are at times shunned but I must remember that they do not fully understand.

    I’m going to post a small part of George Washington speech for you. First Inaugural Address In the City of New York Thursday, April 30, 1789
    You tell me if you see a prophetic message when he put to words in his speech/dedication for the United States of America
    [ I dwell on this prospect with every satisfaction which an ardent love for my country can inspire, since there is no truth more thoroughly established than that there exists in the economy and course of nature an indissoluble union between virtue and happiness; between duty and advantage; between the genuine maxims of an honest and magnanimous policy and the solid rewards of public prosperity and felicity; since we ought to be no less persuaded that the propitious smiles of Heaven can never be expected on a nation that disregards the eternal rules of order and right which Heaven itself has ordained; and since the preservation of the sacred fire of liberty and the destiny of the republican model of government are justly considered, perhaps, as deeply, as finally, staked on the experiment entrusted to the hands of the American people. ]

    Are we now not under the covering due to our falling way from the eternal laws heaven ordained.

    Think about it? What has the United States of America turned into?What more can I say but.

    Psalm 144: 1-2   v1 Praise be to the Lord my Rock,who trains my hands for war,my fingers for battle. v2 He is my loving God and my fortress,my stronghold and my deliverer,my shield, in whom I take refuge,who subdues peoples under me

    We would like to hear from you and see who is out in the community and join with others Please drop us a note

    Have a Blessed day

Wanting to trade ideas and maybe grouping up or finding a group to participate with within a couple hours from my area. Seems to be a lot of folks that post about meeting but I’d also like to get together in person.

Learning food preservation, gardening and hydroponics, ham radios, and building a book library. Huge on education.

    All,  Some great posts here, glad I found this forum.  I live in Northern California, East Bay and looking for similar folks in the area.  I was born and raised in California and saddened to see the state of our State.  I am considering to move up to Seattle area or get a Fall Out Location in the Sierras.  I am Married with 3-kids and looking to see if there are others concerned with the area.

    With the political situations getting more intense, protests increasing and a large number of convicts being released in the streets (thanks to Brown) a bad situation is bound to happen. Looking to get a sense of what other are doing here in California or whether they are looking to move out.  I do want to be prepared for worst case scenarios, but at the same time need to be near a tech hub for work. Further, I do want to have my home base near a city dwelling for the University Systems for my kids.

    One thought is to move to Seattle and get a FOL in Idaho.  Comments / thoughts welcome!

    We are Americans from the south that live in Mexico for the past four years, the land is outrageously cheap down here and we have purchased a very large sector of land that is good for farming and has large hills/mountains not too far off the coast of the Gulf. We are looking for others who may want to join our groups. The Cost of building a home here with a spacious underground bunker in the mountain is very reasonable. The government here and the locals are great and treat us very well. We work a lot of the locals on our agriculture projects. I prefer to speak more in private, I would suggest that interested people set up a free encrypted email with a company named (Protonmail ).

    We have all the resources in place to get folks here easy, safely, and can keep you completely off the grid, we have been working on this for the past four years. let me know if you would like to speak more.


    Hello. I am known as 092620097.1 and I am one of the founding members of this camp, we are strategically positioned in an area in the Yucatan, Mexico.  This area is very safe, virtually no crime, a little bit of petty theft but not around us. We have fresh fruits, citrus, bananas, pineapples and several other tropical fruits year round not to mention vegetables, the climate is always the same year round between 72 to 86 degrees. We have the ocean that allows us fresh fish and seafood year round within a couple miles from our camp. We have great hunting here, three different types of deer and two different types of wild hogs. The ethnic background around our camp is a mixture of Mayan Indians and Mexicans and all are great people that have been very welcoming to us here. The terrain is very hilly. We call the large hills, small mountains, with the flat lands being very rich for agriculture and the mountains being of something similar to limestone. This is a great place to protect your family, we build all houses/bunkers on the mountain. The structures are built from Center Blocks. We currently are building three different sizes depending on families demand.  The camp has deep wells, solar and wind power, plus generator. We are looking for any people that pass our background checks in the following fields, fisherman, farmers, medical, ex-police, ex-military or military with our same belief system, which is pretty simple, willing to fight for family and friends, willing to fight to survive and a desire to live the best life we can without government interference, in other words, free. and of course, any approved member family are welcomed.
