We are one guy and one family that has taken a serious approach to prepping. I am somewhat new and my friend is more experienced. (sp,lol) We are looking foe like minded people that we can learn and grow with and or integrate small group with.
I live in NW Florida (Walton County). I am looking to join or help start an informal prepper resource group in this part of Florida. The unique aspect about preppers is that we all stockpile different provisions, from guns, ammo, dry food, homesteading equipment/systems, silver/gold, seeds, etc. When we all meet up, we can strengthen each other barter or trade. Feel free to respond on this thread, and private arrangements can be made to meet face to face if that is determined what needs to happen. Either way, networking with like-minded preppers in our own neighborhood will help us to survive and thrive when the SHTF
I have been studying and preparing for what I consider to be the collapse of industrial human society since the autumn of 2000.
I consider the three basic areas of preparation to be stuff, people, and place.
I consider all of the supplies and tools that must be acquired before the collapse to be the “stuff” of preparation. I have stuff.
Every serious prepper realizes that it will take a tribe to survive in a post-industrial age. I have spent the last 11+ years attempting to meet and join with like-minded folks. I began with family and friends. I have failed miserably thus far in all of my attempts. I have only the reluctant agreement to join me if the world really collapses from my son, his wife, my daughter, my granddaughter, and maybe (probably not) my daughter’s boyfriend. I have the necessary stuff for this crew. I am not satisfied with the breadth and depth of skills of these 4-5 adults but there are some nursing, military, gardening, and handyman experience – and the demographics are good [4-5 adults/1 child].
Serious preppers also know that the most important post-industrial necessity will be food production which requires “place”. There are precious few places where water, shelter, isolation, and food production can be achieved. I do not yet have what I consider to be an adequate place of retreat.
So, of what I consider to be the three principle areas of preparation, I have stuff and I have the means to get more. I am still seeking people and place.
Time is running out.
