I am going to Alabama soon to start a prepper/survivalist commune. I have some property on a hill in trussville, not far from lake goerge. There is a house, a garage, several trailers and old vehichles,a well, power there but not conected. The house needs work but is fixable.I have family near by. I recently lost my job after a motorcycle accedent and I do not like what I am see happen to the hard workers of America. In short the harder we work the more they take from us. I am what some call a prepper and for the most part can take care of myself, but the truth is (power in numbers)(not looking for hundreds of people). We can do more together than alone.. When the shtf it would be nice to be around trustworthy people that are there for eachother. It would be open vote no president. Tents, huts, friendly pets,leagal weapons,reasonable drinking,tobacco, wacky too all welcome.Looking for people(female or male) with skills like hunting-gathering, botany-gardening, leagal law, carpentry,film-photography fabrication, medical, farming ,,,,I think you get it, if you think you could benifit a group and pull your weight mail me at FreeAlabamaCommune [at] gmail [dot] com. I could really use more info on how this could work easier. I know I’ll probably get a bunch more bullshit for this but its better to be self efficient than a homeless begger with no security so for the bullshitters would you like me to camp in your neighborhood or on my own property.

Hi to all. I am a 54 year old male with substantial farm and animal husbandry, interests in Permaculture, food forests, aquaponics, small “low maintenance as possible” food production models. I have lived in community (twice) and learned alot (one good one bad experience). I like the idea of private land but with cooperation between neighbors who are geographically close. I have scaled back my own ideas of sustainability–after a false start buying some bad land, I now know that I can support myself on about an acre and that four people is a good number to cooperate on a small farm system. To me, prepping is not about hoarding food and bullets and hightailing it out of the city but to already be where you want to be, producing and eating healthy food, and living a sustainable life, in both good times and bad. I am looking for a few good people and a few acres in Texas. No racists, anarchists, apocalyptic-hopefuls, just some nice people, individuals, couples or a small family that wants to develop a mini-farm, and live well. I am in Austin. If there is nothing suitable in Texas I would say that I am willing to consider Arkansas, Tennessee, NC, SC, GA and Alabama. Thanks for reading. Good luck to everybody who is seeking a sustainable, sane future……
Still looking for members to form a prepper group in Prattville Alabama.
I am a new to prepping. I am looking for like minded people in the North Alabama area. I know how to can and dehydrate my own foods but I am always looking for new ideas. I am currently preparing my place to raise a few animals that will help me become more self sufficient. If there are any local groups I would love to become a part of it. I am also seeking any advice that you may have to offer. Thank you.

Hey guys, I would like to say Hi. I am a former Army Ranger and Green Beret. I have taken my training and started developing classes on several important subjects. I have taken the planning process that I used as a Green Beret and tailored it to a family evacuation plan. I have other classes on bug out bags and patrolling and in the process of creating others. I also have a lot of tactical knowledge that I can share. I currently work in law enforcement and was in New Orleans after Katrina and I know how bad it can be here in the US.

Please contact me at jsnell123 [at] gmail [dot] com
come join us on Sat, March 16, 2013 at 3 pm at Toyota of Dothan on Ross Clark Circle.
We meet in upstairs meeting room…sorry, no elevators. All Welcome!
You might be interested in a survival/preparation mutual interest group meeting for folks in and around central Alabama. To me that means the Birmingham area.
I in no way want to step on toes if someone is currently meeting. I apologize in advance if I am not fully aware of everything that is going on. It may even be better to not reinvent the wheel if there is a wheel already out there. I do want to develop a consistent and valuable way to share knowledge and skills. This is not entirely altruistic. I need to learn myself.
I am still looking for a location for the first meeting that I have unilaterally scheduled for Saturday. March 23, 2013 at 12:30 (lunchtime). The agenda for the first meeting follows:
- eat lunch (maybe)
- get to know one another a little
- discuss the best time, location, and periodicity for the meetings
- discuss future topics
The second meeting (to be scheduled) already has a guest speaker (Frank) who will be discussing how to clean water.
Let me know your thoughts.
Email me at BeFreeAL [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested.
Searching for Preppers in the Montgomery, Tri-County area. Looking to start a dependable group of preppers to meet and train with. I am not looking for people who take prepping lightly, nor am I looking to start an “anti-government” group. Simply looking for people who can see where the world is headed and are ready to prepare and train for survival when the time inevitably comes. Let me know if anyone is interested. Thanks!
I’ve been doing the basics of prepping for about a year now and I’d like to get to know a little more. I’ve been a member of a Meet-Up prepper group in Marietta and would like to find something a little closer to the Hiram/Dallas area. Anyone out there?
We have what we refer to as a 24 hour to 48 hour stop off. We have a location in northeast florida were we will form up with one another. It is a well hidden location and off the beaten path. After we meet up there and redistribute supplies and other thing,s we will take more hidden paths and country roads to northern Alabama. There we will form up with more preppers. We will remain there until we have to bug out again if needed. However, I don’t believe that will an issue. We are all well trained and I believe we have thought out everything, from night watch to dig in locations to fortify ourselves. We have all been prepping before it became the “in” thing. For me, for example, my father would drop us off in a closed base on the weekends or more to survive on what we had in our pockets and on our backs. We don’t let many people know the extent of our preparations until we know they are reliable and trustworthy, just because we do train our children. Not just for when the shtf, but also for real life issues like kidnapping and ect. We are more like a close knit family, rather then a bunch of people stuck together like you see on doomsday preppers. We are not saving for any particular event, but more for any that comes our way. We help in knowledge. Every one has to carry there own weight, our reloaders reload, our medics heal, carpenters build, and school teachers teach. We all have very valuable skills, and like most people, some have to double up as others as most of us have a vast array of skills to bring forth so we can survive. We have thirty people in Florida, and close to triple that in Alabama. Our Alabama location is on top of three mountains that hold live stock, homes, a huge lake that is river fed. So even if someone dams the river, we will have enough water from the lake and springs to survive till the dam is taken care of. The three mountains surround a valley, so the children and the elders will be very well protected. We also have all walks of life. This must be expected, as we all pull our own share. We range from old to young, different back grounds and race, to different sexual preferences and religions. I myself don’t care the color of the skin or if they’re gay or straight or if they’re religious or not, as long as when the time comes, they will defend and push, and not retreat and stall. ( Yes, I know retreat to fight another day or fight from another direction).
We would like to know more about you, your views and ideals, ideas you may have for preparing, what you are looking for in a group, your preparations, your experience and training (if applicable), any special skills you may have that you believe would be an asset, etc. Please contact at Looking4kitten (at) ymail (dot) com
We are looking for more people to join with us. Please have some skill to bring to the table and be aware we are NOT going to support you, with food, water or ammo. That’s your job to do. We can however help with preparing. Finding info. You are required to carry your own load sorta speak. We can help with training and a great lay out of what to do. That’s the basics, however we are republicans. We support our rights. We hunt, fish, teach our children the prepper style and we are all a huge family of support. If your new to prepping or need help, Want to learn to protect yourself or others. And are looking for a prepper friends who make a family, look no farther. Living in florida we have a bug out plan in place.
Our monthly meeting will be held on Sat, Feb 23, 2013 at 3pm at Toyota of Dothan on Ross Clark circle in Dothan, AL. Held in upstairs meeting room. Sorry…no elevators. All welcome.
