UPDATE: Thanks for all the responses we’ve already received!  I’ve enjoyed talking with many of you, and our small Christian community here is taking shape just as we hoped.  We see world events spiraling downwards faster every day, so we’re preparing for most scenarios and need a few more solid compatible preppers to round out our skills.

Are you NOW about ready to make THE MOVE once you find your perfect prepper community? If you like what you read below and think you might be a good fit, then we’d love to hear from you soon.

THIS could be the place you’d love to live even if the world never collapses (yeah, right) … but when it does, life here will still be wonderful. It is just so much simpler to thrive (not merely survive) in the friendly, temperate, gorgeous North GA mountains.

We would love to share our beautiful, peaceful land (over 110 Acres of pristine hardwood forest, pastures, and abundant spring creeks) with a few pleasant, like-minded, well-prepped, strong Christian Conservatives who will love living here as much as we do… and who will cheerfully pull together through whatever comes. Good sense of humor and a positive, creative, cooperative attitude are absolutely required!

Solid, caring friendships will be the glue that gets us through the rough times. Although we’re all strong, independent personalities, it is paramount to have a compatibility of attitudes, faith, ideas and goals so we’re all pulling in the same direction when it matters most, with the least amount of friction.

In addition to working together on community or individual projects and for our mutual security, we want the solid foundation of a community built on good-natured, reliable, supportive friendships. Really get to know and like each other, quirks and all, by making the time to get together for cook-outs, games, music… whatever is fun!

Each private homestead will have plenty of space for a garden, animals, etc., and the majority of the land will remain natural for enjoying larger common gardens, orchards, pasture, hydro-projects, ponds, pure spring water, firewood, great hunting, and awesome forest nature trails for hiking, horses, and relaxing.

BUT… Just what makes THIS particular land a “Perfect Prepper Paradise”?  (Aside from us nice folks, of course.) :-)  Glad you asked!

Perfect Climate:   Our local mountain ranges create a wonderful micro-climate around us… four lovely seasons, and our moderate summers and winters are even milder than the counties just above and below us.  No humidity and no need for air conditioning with a good design. I (Rebecca) designed my mostly glass passive solar home (heated only by the sun and my wood stove) and have not needed AC in 20 years! Our growing season is very long (Zone 7); plenty of rainfall and lots of sunshine. Lush green everywhere! No extreme weather events to contend with.

Perfect Location:  Ellijay (in Gilmer County) is a truly beautiful and sparsely-populated agricultural community in the gorgeous, green mountains of the Chattahoochee National Forest, about 40 miles south of the GA-TN-NC  border.

Our ranch is off the beaten track near the end of a quiet dead-end paved road where you can vanish into your own private world. Extremely peaceful, private yet convenient location… quiet and secluded, but not dangerously remote. Only 8 easy miles to Ellijay, a very friendly small mountain town with mostly like-minded Christian conservative, self-sufficient and welcoming people.

Three clean mountain rivers wind through the County; great for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing, and we’re about 14 miles to the beginning of the Appalachian Trail. Gorgeous mountain views everywhere; truly God’s country.

Gilmer County is a wonderful place to live and enjoy while life is “normal” and a very safe place to be if everything collapses.  (Think “Mayberry” in the mountains with a strong Constitutional Sheriff!)  Small family farms are abundant:  apple orchards, vineyards, organic grass-fed beef, chickens, etc.  The adjacent family farm (five generations!) raises/sells healthy grass-fed, hormone-free meat and local organic foods.

Perfect Land:   All the features you could possibly want for self-sufficiency on one gorgeous, peaceful tract of land!  This 110+ Acres is blessed with ALL SOUTHERN Exposure, rich brown ORGANIC soil, and abundant gravity SPRING WATER… perfect for gardens, greenhouse, pasture, and passive Solar homes!

Numerous pure drinkable, never-ending mountain springs, creeks and pond sites run throughout the land (we own to the watershed at the ridgeline for protected purity!).  Plenty of gravity water for hydro-power and waterwheels.

The ridgeline runs along our North property line for great protection, which means ALL of the land faces South!  Several acres are already in pasture and ready for gardens, orchards, etc.  The majestic old-growth forest with huge mature hardwoods, laurels, ferns and abundant wildlife is a serene sanctuary and provides great hunting (deer & big turkey) and firewood. Trout streams nearby.

Most of this acreage is level and rolling up to high level plateaus with great mountain views! The lowest fields are at 1750’ and the highest peak on the property is 2100’.  Excellent cell phone & high-speed internet coverage. We have electric, phone/cable now, but could go off-grid with a bit more effort. That’s the goal.

Because the mountains surround our dead-end horseshoe valley, this geography provides natural security, so we don’t have to be highly “militarized” (although sensible security and gun skills are valued and utilized). But the very best security is living in the right place around the right people… and being prepared for anything. We could even shut off the only dead-end road coming into our mountain-surrounded valley if it were ever necessary!  The few neighbors living on our short road have their own provisions and would pull together for protection in a crisis.

Perfect Homestead Parcels: Perfect because you’ll help design your perfect dream homestead, situated around the large natural areas set aside for common use. There are so many great choices, and cost depends on the size and features of your tract, the terms, etc. Obviously, the earlier folks will get the widest selection.

And if you already have a group or an extended family looking for land we do have larger tracts available. Also open to cohousing; it’s a big property! Minimal sensible covenants will protect your investment, but not run your life. (BTW, it’s ok to stay in a nice travel trailer here while building.)

Us NOT-So-Perfect (but pretty darn nice) Folks:  We’re mature (at least most of the time  😀 ), innovative, and have been preppers for years.  We’re all steady in a crisis, determined hard workers, easy-going, and love to laugh!  Each person will have at least a year’s full preps stored here as quickly as possible (meaning soon!).

Our backgrounds include military/LEO security, medical/nursing fields, entrepreneurs & business owners, so we all have great leadership and organizational skills… but are not authoritarian, bossy types (we don’t need that). We each can lead, teach, follow or get out of the way as appropriate, and we want others with the same cooperative attitudes.

We have experience & skills in nursing and medical care, solar home design, site planning, basic carpentry, woodworking, plumbing, mechanical and repair skills, gardening, fishing, hunting (both gun and bow), cleaning & tanning hides, operating chain saws & farm equipment, and one member is a former Air Force Security Service vet & current LEO… a huge security asset for us!

I have lived on this land most of my adult life and have many years of experience in homesteading, gardening and livestock care on THIS land. I know it thoroughly and how to use and protect it sustainably for the long-term. Over the years, I designed/built my passive solar home; built a pond off one of the springs; have a gusher of a well, plus back-up gravity water from another pure spring high up the mountain; cleared and fenced the pastures (have 3 horses). Numerous places to repeat all this!

Perfect Time:  You’ve been thinking, prepping, looking and worrying. NOW is the time to stop worrying and to ACT.  Time is short, so please contact me very soon to discuss all the great possibilities.

Contact me here or email at: MtnsofGa [ at ] gmail [dot] com.  I look forward to talking with you soon!

Rebecca (BTW… Did I mention “Paradise”?? :-) )

We are wanting to find other like minded preppers to join in a community.  Myself and 4 other preppers are wanting to find at least 20 people or families willing join together as a family.  This is what we are trying to do…   We would like to find preppers willing to put in time and money to build a community.    EVERYONE would be part owners in the land, and be responsible for making decisions as a family.  We would eventually like to see our community grow to about 100 families.  WE are trying to get as many people as possible to do this around Feb. 2016.  We dont care if your new or have been prepping for 20 yrs.   But we are trying to get this done before SHTF.  IF you want more info on the family please contact me at  powerstrokeredneck(at)yahoo(dot)com   I will be more than happy to explain in further detail of our plan.

Thank you,     God Bless and Happy prepping  :)

The U.S. dollar has been the world’s reserve currency for 94 years, but after losing 98% of its buying power and the world realizing it’s fiat status, it has peaked and its days are now numbered. Once again we’re facing the threat of hitting another debt ceiling. Only this time, China has been dumping US dollar denominated assets at historic levels while Chinese companies have begun reducing the amount of dollars they borrow for international transactions. Steps being taken in preparation for China to become a world reserve currency. If you know your history, wars have always been created when world economies begin to fail.

When the politicians, the talking head “experts” and the MSM tell you to not panic, it’s time to wake the hell up … and probably time to panic. So, is it any wonder that the summer of 2015, yet again, set another record for the sale of firearms in the united States? But what good are weapons when we continue to stay divided by the machinations of the incompetents, which have usurped and altered our form of government? Have we become so ignorant and complacent by our pride, we no longer recognize the threats presented from porous borders? The miscreants that control us are well protected by our children we loan to them through military service, under the guise of patriotism, only to be returned to us either broken or dead. Then they are further persecuted or neglected because they hold the title of Veteran. What type of madness does a person suffer from that pays, in so many ways, for their own demise and that of their children? Is it really anti-government, to be anti-evil and have a distaste for secrecy which breeds corruption? The Scriptures tell us, ” Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.”  But even doves, sensing a source of impending danger, sacrifice their safety to protect their mate and nest… It’s not advocating violence, to put on His armor and stand in defense of His children and creation. When you are not violent by nature, yet, you are labeled a terrorist because of your faith, belief in the Constitution and desire for freedom. A label courtesy of the Demopublican cartel.

Where does your faith really lay when you acquiesce to evil supplanting their traits upon yourselves? Making your trust of one another far below their levels of trust. So far, in fact, we can’t even pull our families, friends or neighbors together to prepare for what’s coming. We have to create posts like this in an attempt to find strangers we can trust. And, that’s no easy task, either.

​Unless you have been living in the trees for the past four decades, you would have seen the mile markers on the way to Fascism/Communism/Marxism (whatever ism you choose). Revealing to you a world bound in secrecy, surveillance, corruption, and lies, culminating into a complete world of civil, moral and economic bankruptcy. If you know what the worlds economy is really built upon, then you know what it will take to survive what is coming and needed to rebuild it after the chaos… So what, you say, I’m ready for it. I’ve got my gold, silver, food, water, tools, weapons and ammo. Bring it on! Yep, you’re ready alright, except for the one thing that will prove to be more precious than any amount of gold you could ever hope to hold. More life saving than all the food storage and medicines you could possibly gather and more valuable than anything you could barter with. Because without it, you’re just another sheep huddled within a stockyard waiting to be singled out and taken to slaughter. Oh yes, listen to the experts, they’ll tell you your survival doesn’t depend on it being there, after all, man has lived without it for thousands of years. But did they? You can have the knowledge of preparing to survive, but having the knowledge does not mean you have the understanding of what will be needed to survive.

There is more and more indisputable evidence coming into focus that is contrary to what you’ve been taught in government controlled schools, which have perpetrated so many lies and illusions. It was once said, ” It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” If you still believe that slaves with ropes and wooden skids built the pyramids, a feat that cannot be duplicated even today, then you need to continue on with your own style of preparing. If you don’t swallow that Bovine Excrement, it shows that you possibly may be a thinker and you need to be aligned with other thinkers.

Two things we are finding many are lacking in their attempt to prepare for a multi-event scenario is lack of security and privacy… In a society without total surveillance amid the perceived threats by those in power, it would be a non-issue. But in today’s world it is very much a concern, and we need to become more prudent about what we put online. Face it, we have become 1984 in 2015 and have to come to terms with how we need to proceed in creating safety in numbers. Placing phone numbers, email addresses, locations and a list of your supplies, especially armaments, is considered, in not just my opinion, very poor judgement. These are things that need to be discussed as private as possible, preferably face to face. I’ve read numerous warnings from the admin of this site, stressing concern over two instances I have listed. If anyone should be listened to, it’s those that created this site.

Ever since the internet was released to the world, most people thought nothing  about revealing every detail about their person. They used their full name for their free email, created profiles to accompany them, joined social networks, posted photos of themselves, family, friends, acquaintances, even their locations and where they traveled to. Never once taking into consideration it could be used against them in later days, in order to track them and exploit every aspect of their existence. Only recently, people are beginning to learn they’ve become their own worst enemy, by falling into this now obvious snare of disclosure and apathy. If they would have only taken the time to research and learn where the internet came from, they may have been a little more discreet and less foolish. Which brings me to one of my favorite verses in the Scriptures. Repeated twice, word for word, in the same book, Proverbs. What are the odds? It goes like this, ” A prudent man foreseeth evil and hides himself, the foolish pass on and are destroyed.”  Did I also mention, they are the only places in all of the Scriptures, where the word “foreseeth” appears? If you were to recognize just the wisdom alone contained within those verses and they were written for these uncertain times, then it should be a no-brainier’s thought process to adhere to it.

Paranoia, is when there are no factual bases for fear, Common Sense, obviously, dictates the existence of those facts.
Please keep in mind, we are all about security and privacy. We will not divulge anything more than what our plans are, until we are sure about you and.you are convinced we are on to something… Something most of the so-called experts conveniently left out or minimized the importance of. Send us a private message with any thoughts & contact info and we’ll be willing to discuss more with you.

Tired of trying to do it all on your own.  you may be a good fit for our group .We are a nationwide prepping group made up of good people who care about each other, who take care of each other, and who prepare together. Why? Because we live in very uncertain times and it is the smart thing to do. At this time , we are 452 members strong in 43 States. If we continue to grow at this rate, we will be in all 50 States by December 2015 with more than 1,000 members. We are inviting you to join our family of preppers. We are an amazing group, you will make us better!

Our mission is to create an independent system, free of external support which would promote interdependence. In an uncertain world filled with natural disasters and worldwide terrorism, it is only reasonable for a person to seek security in the strength of a group. This system will ensure the safety and security of its members regardless of the scope, duration, or intensity of any emergency. Our mission is to develop a nationwide network of well organized, well prepared, well meaning, likeminded individuals who know, trust and care about each other. The goal of our group will be to leverage the collective skills and resources of its Members so that when the storm arrives, the weak will be safe, the hungry will be fed, and the sick will be healed. Please check out our Plan B .  If you are interested in more information please email me back and I will answer any questions you may have.  bredon1384 [at] gmail [dot] com

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

Hi, My name is Renee. I am a 24 female nursing student. I live in Louisiana.I have 2 sons. I am new to prepping and knowing that anything can happen is what helped me decide to start prepping.  So, like any parent I would like to have a safe place for my family just in case SHTF.

I am looking to start a prepping group/community. I would like to have a large mixed group of open minded people from all walks of life.  Your race, age, religion, material status, family size or where you live will not matter. As long as you can offer a skill or two you will be welcome. and for those who don’t have skills you must be willing to learn. I would require a background check from your local sheriffs office, I’m not trying to get all in your business. I’m just trying to make sure everyone would be safe.  If you would like to explain anything you will get a chance to do so.

I would like to buy some land to build a bug out community. i am currently designing an above ground community and an underground retreat. I have started looking at some land in the Midwest states. I figured that would be the safest place in any SHTF scenario. I do like the land in Missouri.

If you are looking to join and you have land and you would like it to be used let me know.

I know most people don’t want a large group for various reasons. I figure we are all adults and are we are all trying to do the same thing ( have a safe place). so why not work together. It would hurt to have a lot of skills in one group. Plus if we did have to go underground we would need a lot of different people for social reasons.

So if you are interested in this, email me at ladavianw [at] icloud [dot] com

I’m building a full Prepper community, I have land in the Hanover county area of New Hampshire about 25-30 acres with a well, as well as several dead drop locations on the eastern coast of the US available goal is to make room for between 75-100 people a group that will not only survive but thrive. project will take a few years and stages including group training. this is an invitation extended towards existing prepper groups and individuals alike.

One thing I’ve learned is numbers are essential so I’m trying to do what i can to pull resources and like minded preppers to aid each other in prepping a safely secured self sufficient community.

What I’m looking for.

  • Friendly and trustworthy, individuals that understand working together equally is important free code no kings no servants
  • Variant degree of skill, if you know nothing the show willingness to learn if you know something be ready to teach

If you are looking for a group please contact me asap so we cant get this ball rolling. More valuable than all the preps in the world is a diverse group that can work together. We can pull our resources and knowledge together to better prepare for anything this life throws at us.. I am in Salem county and want to find like minded people in the southern region. Contact me directly at improvinghealth [at] gmail dot com
