Our family (of 4 possibly 5) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with.  We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring.  We wish to relocate to Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, N. Nebraska, but preferably somewhere out West since it is less populated (Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, North or South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah). We are choosing not to remain in Tennessee. We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.

Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live  in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.

In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me. We currently live just outside of Chattanooga, but it is just over the mountain in our backyard, and those folks are going to be heading somewhere to try to survive….

We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. We have no roots here, and have been looking to leave for a while, but have stayed just because it’s where my kids have always gone to school. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Smart and well prepared family looking to purchase a few acres of bugout and/or homestead land. Any advice on the best areas to look at would be greatly appreciated. Any prepping groups out there, we would love to hear from you. Anyone who wants a good neighbor that will stand and work hard or stand and fight hard, let me know. I am constitutionally minded and have taken the oath to defend it. Fully skilled in all prepping areas; background checks are ok. So please, if you know of a few good acres (paying cash) let me know as I am heading out that way soon.

PS… I don’t suffer fools!

Admin Edit: Please send the location/real estate suggestions via the Private Messaging system (or leave an email for contact) so this one doesn’t turn into a pro-con debate, or take the pro-con debates over to the forum side where they can be dissected at length. Cheers!

240 Acre Homestead

Ponds, creeks, caves, pastures, forest – isolated – 30 minutes from nearby city.

Have 60 acres of pasture, and 180 of forest.

Will be building green-houses, edible forest garden, etc.

Have goats, chickens, ducks, and will be getting cows in the future.

Looking for like-minded preppers to join our community.

Apartments for rent on site – brand new – on grid – but will be prepped for off-grid living in future – solar array and rain catchment.

Locations on site for trailers or RVs and hook ups.

Rent will be paid until government collapses at which time we will not worry about trivial things such as money. 🙂

Looking for people to move on site that have the time and interest in preparing for the future – putting in perennial gardens, working with livestock, building ponds and rain catchment systems etc.

Looking for people that not only want a place to live out the apocalypse, but people that want to become a part of a community – a part of a family.

Sounds like a good fit for you? Email me at genpurematt at gmail dot com or call three16.9nine3.60zero2

Let me know your skills, interests, etc.

Hello, I just moved back to Arkansas. I am looking for a small group, minus any maniacal zealots who wants to be king personalities discluded.

I as anyone who has put much real thought have my own set of skills, as well as ideas. The reason I want a small groyo vs. a larger established group is not only security, but to avoid a obvious paper trail.

I made this wrap around email to avoid it being tracked back to me. Since I have in depth studied gov tactics, I am obviously careful.

I see a lot of the same post on different states, and suggest anything you want kept secret not to post. I see a lot of people posting about big farms, a lot of info. Trouble with big operations they are easy to track.

If anyone seriously interested in poofing when it goes down, I am free to talk. I am happy to share my ideas and may even give you insights on the overlooked. I am in Nwa, and probably going to set up a group. This way I can screen and avoid the obvious mistakes most tend to make..

Coming to you live from central\north western Arkansas.Living here but not from there.

So what to say?We got stuff,We want to keep our stuff.We want to trade/barter our stuff with like-minded people.We our small group are looking to find the right type of people and skill sets to add to our mutual self-sustaining longevity.To some we may be a batch of paranoid nut bars just for being on this site.Why do we prep,why do you prep?What will S.H.T.F be?What will a W.R.O.L  situation look or be like?World history shows us many examples.Our country took a hard hit back in 1929 and a great and very hard working people who still had the survival chops/skills and know how to buckle down and ride the storm.

What we are willing to admit we have ha ha Opsec and all ya know.We have 40 acres rural land mostly forested large lake 1/4 mile off land great fishing,2 streams/creeks on property springs aplenty,deer,turkey even a black bear from time to time, small game birds and varmints galore.Note varmints not first choice but way better than last choices.See told you i was not from Arkansas.Just kidding Arkansas folks.We have chickens,goats and beautiful cute fluffy little bunny rabbits,that we eat.We have solar power enough for about 4 families with parts to build many more panels.We are working on hydro power as well you know for those cloudy days.We have planted many yummy crops cause veggies go well with meat.We also have a well.

What we are looking for varies,We could say like-minded people but chances are you do not think like us and that is ok,and by that i mean every body has their own points of view.We are looking to make friends perhaps become extended family in time.We are looking for partners not subservience We will ask nothing we are not willing to do our self.Sweat with us side by side working to better our situation,Plant crops with us and share our harvest,hunt with us and share our meat and fish.In times of trouble have our 6 and we will have yours.In good times we will build,work,train,laugh and play.If you are looking for a group and have some skills and the means to provide for yourself until we can make it so we can all provide for one and other perhaps we have a future together.

The right families are welcome,We love vets hardcore alpha dogs could fit well with a couple of our boys.We are looking for some of the black sheep so to speak you know who you are the ones who have told your family and friends what may happen what is happening in our country and in our world only to be met with blank stares or accusing glances.If you think it is better to have the sandbags in place before the waters rise or rounds fly we may be speaking to you.               [email protected]

My wife and I live in the Mountainburg area of the Ozark Mountains. We are looking to start a new small group or join a small group in our area. We are not interested in starting or being part of any group that will get us on a watchlist lol.

What we are interested in for the group is a small group of maybe 5-10 singles or couples. We are interested in making this group the core of our friendships. We are looking for people who not only will help each other but want to help each other. Monthly or bi-weekly meetings with training in multiple areas a must. Once the group is established and doing well maybe set up group buys and group standards. This is just a starting point and ideas we can always work out the details as we go along. If your group is in our area and seems to meet what we are looking for please let us know. If this sounds like the kind of group you would like to be interested in joining please let me know.

Now for a little info about us that wont be giving up any OPSEC. We are in our late 30s early 40s. Ex-military with different skills. We own our home free and clear and looking to buy more land in our area (Ozark National Forest area). We have one child who will soon be in the Army.

Hi my partner and I , 27 & 32 along with 2 children: boy 10 girl 8 are new to prepping. We would like to find a group to join or form one ourselves. Willing to relocate to Arkansas, Missouri, Oklahoma, Texas, or Colorado to form group…Age, sex, race, religion not important. We are not starting with much so we dont care what you have as long as you are willing to help get the things needed for our success at survival…land food water shelter defense medical… Would like to eventually be self sustaning in every form and fashion. We are looking to buy land in one of previous mentioned states. Hoping to find people willing to help get land so that we could get larger acres. Let’s start surviving together. Let’s talk.

Mar 142016
 

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

eliyahu.yhwh at yahoo dot com

I seek a very small Remnant:
I am a single and alone 61yo respectful and honorable man of high moral standards and beliefs. I seek to know our Creator as he is, by learning his language, keeping his Torah as best I can, meeting him on his own terms and not by the interpretation or translations of other worldly men. I seek the Unity and Brotherhood of a very small remnant in my camp, which is guarded closely and kept in good order of condition as instructed by the most wise, the omniscient Yahuah.

I have a great location in SE Oklahoma, just 25 miles north of Paris Texas. It is 19 acres, has a good size pond, trees and pasture, garden, a new small orchard and vineyard, Shop 40Wx88Lx14H cement floor with built in apartment at one end (under construction). Electric on property, water well and septic, cellular internet and in a country rural setting with great neighbors. Just three miles south of Hugo Lake with great fishing and hunting. A sportsman’s paradise…

I believe in being well armed for defense of my people and my property, I train as best I can to maintain discipline and order. I keep my reserve well stocked and my position aware. I have a few chickens, have had in the past goats, turkeys, geese, ducks and more…

I am not trying to be unreasonable and will do my best to work with people who are willing to meet Yahuah as he is and on his own terms, but Yahuah’s Word is the final source of correction in righteousness. (Your bible is not the Torah Echad of Yahuah, but only a translation in interpretation and myth. It is of foreign authorship and corruption, a counterfeit in pollution by way of western philosophy, theology, tradition and full of lies, deception and the like.)

Order in the Camp: Keep, Guard Protect and Provide…
Deu 23:14 “For יהוה your Elohim walks in the midst of your camp, to deliver you and give your enemies over to you. Therefore your camp shall be Kadosh, so that He does not see unclean matter among you, and shall turn away from you.

This is where I am at the present time:
I do not drink but a little wine on occasion (the same will be expected of you), I do not take any drugs / herbs / oils / tobacco for my healing or otherwise but for food and to quench the thirst as Yahuah alone heals and my faith is in the Creator and not the creation (the same will be expected of you). Herbs / oils are good for perfume and fragrance, to spice the cooking pot. But sorcery in witchcraft will not be tolerated, the use of anything taken orally will be for nourishment and to quench the thirst, anything used for any other form of healing / cure will be considered sorcery and not allowed.

This year and the next will be a great year to build as I am observing the Shemitah until the next time of the Barley Harvest which will then institute the beginning of the Jubilee year. This only happens in this order every Fifty years so I am doing my best to recognize this very special time.  The land will rest during this time, no planting or harvesting only partaking of what is needed at the time of whatever comes up volunteer:

(not preaching to the choir)
Lev 25:3 ‘Six years you sow your field, and six years you prune your vineyard, and gather in its fruit,
Lev 25:4 but in the seventh year the land is to have a Sabbath of rest, a Sabbath to יהוה. Do not sow your field and do not prune your vineyard.
Lev 25:5 ‘Do not reap what grows of its own of your harvest, and do not gather the grapes of your unpruned vine, for it is a year of rest for the land.
Lev 25:6 ‘And the Sabbath of the land shall be to you for food, for you and your servant, and for your female servant and your hired servant, and for the stranger who sojourns with you,
Lev 25:7 and for your livestock and the beasts that are in your land. All its crops are for food.
Lev 25:8 ‘And you shall count seven Sabbaths of years for yourself, seven times seven years. And the time of the seven Sabbaths of years shall be to you forty-nine years.
Lev 25:9 ‘You shall then sound a ram’s horn to pass through on the tenth day of the seventh month, on the Day of Atonement cause a ram’s horn to pass through all your land.
Lev 25:10 ‘And you shall set the fiftieth year apart, and proclaim release throughout all the land to all its inhabitants, it is a Jubilee for you. And each of you shall return to his possession, and each of you return to his clan.
Lev 25:11 ‘The fiftieth year is a Jubilee to you. Do not sow, nor reap what grows of its own, nor gather from its unpruned vine.

At your service,

Ely

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…

Where are the real preppers at?
I have been looking for several years now for a group of people how actually know what is happening and can clearly see what is coming down the pike and are preparing for it.
I have looked in Arkansas, Alabama, Kentucky, Tennessee, and several other states and all I am able to find are people who are half stepping and not taking this seriously.
I come with everything I need to be self sustaining while at the same time able to contribute to the group as a whole. This includes my own housing materials, food supplies (this includes an excellent supply of seeds), medical supplies, tools and so on, which means I am not a burden or drain on other people, and given the right conditions I can produce as much as 80% of everything I need and have enough left over to trade for the 20% I cannot produce and even share with others who may need what I have.
I have no time for this hippie garbage of community because that attitude will allow others to take what you have because you will not be prepared to defend what you have.
I am not some kind of gung-ho crazy looking for a fight but I do want to be with people who will stand and defend what is theirs (this includes our country and our Constitution).
I am a hard core constitutionalists with a deeply profound love of country and would like very much to connect with and join with a group of like minded people who are truly preparing for a coming collapse and all that comes with it.
I am currently in Georgia but would consider other areas if there is some way to move my equipment and supplies (I do not drive so any move would require your assistance).
If you have the land and are interested in adding to your numbers an excellent asset with many skills you can contact me at dancingwithpoi(at)yahoo(dot)com.
I know the warnings of using personal email addresses and such but that is not a concern of mine. I would prefer direct contact which will save time and hassle.

Hello all,

First off, happy 4th of July to all American preppers!

I am a part of a small, Ohio-based prepping network that are looking to extend our membership out to the other mainland US states! (sorry Alaska/Hawaii). We are very organized in our methods of prepping and want like-minded people who can contribute, to come on board!

So some more info…

What are we:

– An Ohio-based prepping network! What does this mean? Basically, we are a group of like-minded prepping individuals who share their knowledge, wisdom and experience with other members of the network. We have our own, private lines of communication to do this.

– What do we do? In ‘peacetime’ we mainly share information and news between one another. The local individuals do meet for prepping meets/range days/beers and we are looking to become more organized (and varied) with our meetings as we grow in size.

– What do we have? Besides the usual prepping resources, we have organization and (hopefully) a growing community! In all seriousness though, we do have a hierarchy. This is formed and enforced through a moderate selection process; each member has an assigned peacetime and post-SHTF role based on their skill set. We have contingency plans, bugout location(s) (working on a few) amongst other things. We pride ourselves in being very organized.

What do we want:

– Likeminded individuals: We do not discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, religion, sexual preference, or anything else you can think of. However, we do select based on experience and there is an interview/selection process as explained below.

– Experienced Preppers: We do have a selection process. This is essentially to prevent freeloaders and ensure that you’re a good fit! We do ask that people applying be actively prepping prior to joining, or have the means to do so after joining. Exceptions are always given on a case-by-case basis but generally we aren’t a group suited for brand new preppers.

– People with niche skills, such as:

  • Medical professionals: Doctors, Surgeons, Nurses, Medics, EMT’s, Combat Medics.
  • Former soldiers/military personnel: Particularly those who have undertaken both training and/or combat roles. Former ‘specialist’ MOS’s are encouraged to apply.
  • Mechanics: Particularly vehicle mechanics.
  • Builders: Especially those with experience building small houses (or similar)
  • Naturists: No, not the people who are naked all the time. We’re looking for people with experience in edible plants, alternative medicine and growing large quantities of food.
  • Electricians/Plumbers: As with the builders, experience with domestic buildings is a plus!
  • Chefs: Anyone with experience storing, preparing and serving food. People with experience in creating home made alcohol also a plus.
  • Farmers/Vets: Anyone with experience in keeping and maintaining the wellbeing of animals. Particularly farm/domestic animals.
  • Blacksmith: Anyone with experience in fabricating and welding.
  • Seamstress: Experience making and repairing clothes.

What we are not:

– A paid membership-based network: We are not ZERT! You will be required to only give up knowledge and experience to become a member. Besides what you spend on your personal prepping, we will never ask you for your hard earned cash!

– A militia: we are not an organization to help you plan your government overthrow. We are about sustainability and community. Yes, we are armed, but are by no means an offensive fighting force. We won’t be going to war with the federal government, teaching you tax evasion or helping you plan the assassination of your neighbor. So if that’s what you want – move along!

– A charity: Our members prep their resources for themselves. We share knowledge and training now. Post-SHTF resource sharing will occur between communities in line with our pre-approved plans.

 

I know I have posted a lot of info, if you think that this network sounds like it could be for you, please leave a comment below, tell us about yourself and leave your email address! I actively monitor this so will reply pretty quickly. Looking forward to seeing whose out there.

– JP

Family of six maybe seven looking to move with 30 to 60 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I have my own tools and equipment, food, water filter, some weapons and ammo, camper to live in till living structure is built.  Looking to build a CEB (compressed earth block) living structure.  I am also building my own CEB press.  If we joined a group, we will need at least 1-2 acre to build and live on.  We want to help others do the same, also willing to work on the common area preparing it for when it all falls apart.   I am learning every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  I also have the material to build a shop 39’x40′ with CEB walls from local soil.  I have two sons (21 & 30) a daughter (23) with 16 month old son (possibly a son-in-law) and a wife all in better than average health.   No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this. We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in a irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone water will be gone as will civil order.  I am a Nam Vet.   We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with equipment and more.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder and rioting with families who were not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.  Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso and Las Cruces N.M, then Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.  We are debt free and looking for a group with similar values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.  We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

Hello to everyone, I just joined the site and I’m thankful for your time. My name is Phillip, I’m a 56 year old male and in good health. I’m a veteran, I’m married with 3 grown kids. I’m searching for a established group with land were I can help build and contribute in any way it make us a safe refuge from the gloom that the world has turned into. I live in Arkansas and willing to relocate and have travel trailer to live in until a solid structure can be built. I’m willing to swap may labor and devoted time for a place to stay. I’m self employed so I can devote all my time to helping.My wife would be joining me but not at first. I want to do a meet and greet and willing for the group leaders to do a back ground check on myself. I have 40 years of being a mechanic and I can do welding, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heating and air, refrigeration work, gardening and have experience living in the country around horses, cattle and most farm animals. I by no means saying a know it all and will be open to any ones help as life is a never ending learning school and adventure everyday. all I’m a very avid hunter, fisherman and just started trapping this winter so I have a lot to learn as far as trapping goes. I’m a very avid outdoorsman and have experience in living off grid. I still need to keep learning and am wiling to learn. I can provide a list of on hand materials and equipment to offer. I’m willing to work right beside any one who has the desire to make things good for all of us. I’m more than open to questions and suggestions. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from a good solid established group or start up. I can be reached here or at midnightrider2158 at yahoo dot com. Again thank you to all Phillip

I have been prepping for a few years.  I am in the process of moving from a suburb of a major metropolitan area to NWA.  I am looking for any and all advice/comments related to prepping that may be more specific to the area.  Things like: climate/weather considerations, storage of preps (most homes I am looking at don’t have basements), accessibility to water, ways to meet other preppers while maintaining opsec, general attitude of people toward preparedness lifestyle, general attitude toward firearms and concealed carry, dangerous local species (I have been told poisonous snakes are a concern) and any other things I may need to consider.

I am not looking to join a large group of people who may not know each other well and act more like a social club.  I mean no offense – and encourage everyone to prepare in whatever way that they are comfortable.  I am very private about my prepping and prefer to create strong relationships with just a few others who choose to prepare, learn and train together with a plan for communication and mutual support depending on what type of event takes place.

Thank you in advance to anyone that takes the time to respond.
