I’m sorry If I am not posting in the correct place, I just joined the site and its the closest place I have found to what I am in search of.

I am looking for a group, a family, interested in living off the land and being self sufficient. I am willing to travel and am okay with a group that possibly travels around. I never wanted to live the stereotypical cookie cutter lifestyle. I’m honestly utterly miserable from living my life the way everyone else expects me to. I want to live for myself and this is the only way I have ever been truly happy with my life. I know there are others like me and I am hoping to possibly meet you through this site. I am still preparing (have been for about three years now) and in no way rushing things. I also feel this would give me more than enough time to find people I am compatible with and ensure that we get along well and have ample time to get to know one another. I also would not mind hearing of others experiences on this subject, it always feels good knowing that I am not alone. 🙂 If you are interested please feel free to reply!

ARE THERE ANY REAL PREPPERS OUT THERE? I mean LIKE MINDED. Net working sharing ideas that’s all fine and dandy. but when not acted upon is just useless talk, and you know what they say “talk is cheap” I’ve noticed many are just romancing prepping. Their mind goes there but their body never shows up. Just networking won’t keep your lights on it won’t keep the water running it won’t feed you. It wont come to your rescue if you have problems.
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 take 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 take care of 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 8 years now. We have mainly built to what a few have called a small piece of heaven. I don’t quite see it that way…LOL It’s 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 take care of 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 we have been hard core prepping for 8 years now. We live 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 5 bath house. We are starting one more addition. Which will be 4 rooms and a bath room. 2 stories tall with a 3rd floor as a observation platform. We also have a mobile home which is almost completely remolded to house a family also. We totally remodeled an out building into a studio apt. one full bed room living area and full bathroom. Would love to put one more mobile home on the property. Septic tank is already there water too. Also could place a couple of RVs there for any one who’s interested in that. 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 PREP provide what personal stuff you may need for yourselves at this current time.That means food and all personal things you want or feel you need to live as close to a normal life. 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 TO TAKE CARE OF IT. We are dug in deep no plan for bugging out! IF and I do mean IF we felt we had to bug out we have also in the family a 100 acres only 20 min’s away…This is the first time I have included this in any of my post.
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 were not providing some kind of retirement community. We all work here! I know this site was set up to help LIKE MINDED PREPPERS, to 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. 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. I have already went against my call on this one once and have lived to regret it. 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… So Happy Prepping and maybe I will hear from you. Thanks Rick… email me at Knightmagic101 @ aol . com

Hello Ladies and Gents

I would like to thank so many people from this site for all the contacts and conversations we ,My son and I received we have been offline and off grid for a while. With time and a little patience this site has gained us a friend who we teamed up with and a group that we three are now members of and we all live together in our own places. We my son and I have been in groups for long term stays as we have said before in our other post [ Get us if you can ]… We do not know what happened but we were not able to get into our post or back on the site with our old profile. But we are back and we ask each of our friends who have contacted us to get back in touch you know who you are lol…As I was saying it is hard to wade through so many people and groups and find the real deals as most of us very well know, however after many months of looking for the right people and so many contacts even friends,, we made a choice and we could not be more happy with the real and down to earth people we have found.. For op sec reasons I will not be giving a list of we got this and we got that …

Now if you are looking for a group to bond with to become friends and maybe extended family we may be what you are looking for .. If you are real, , honest,,  true to yourself and others you may fit..  we are not a religious group we have many people with many different points of view and we respect each other and each others points of view…  We are open to all good people contact us by e mail if we like what we see and hear we will move to phone person to person talks and get to know each other.. we love ex mil alpha dogs and those who have a prepping and security mindset..  If you have skillsets you bring to the table and you wish for safety in likeminded numbers we may be your kind of crazy lol

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

are there any religious prepper sites? been searching for religious organizations that may have prepper communities —-am christian, catholic rite (not following the pope) tho; looking in arkansas or missouri area and hadn’t run across anything. am willing to look at other area.
FYI: contacted a few morman groups who said , sadly, even a lot of morman’s aren’t prepping —wow guess lost their way; and,there seems to be a lot of catholics churches in utah, but alas no preppers—anyway thought I would ask around

Finally back. Some adventures in looking for a place. still in orlando and not looking good to move. Most of what I see are groups looking for people to help them when SHTF—and that is commendable and great we need you guys then there are the nuts who want you to kill bear with your bare hands, train for combat etc—great we need you guys too; then we have the newbies , we need you too; then the ole folks, we fellow old folks need you too but others don’t want the burden, and frankly, that is understandable esp if any of the predictions are true about what is coming.

So here we are again, old people who cannot connect with other groups for one reason or another. Even religious groups don’t have a connection for this; although some local christian groups may have, but these are very local and not out for public consumption.
So have made it my goal to try to find a senior prepper community out there in hopes that this lost tribe of old folks can at least communicate if not participate and get some solace in these trying times ahead. Not going to form any group and don’t want money; just going to pass along any info I can get and leave it up to you original “be prepared people” to share, act , or just read.
thanks God bless

Here in northeast Florida we have been through our first storm of the season only days beyond the June 1st date that signifies the beginning of the season.  Even though NOAA predicts an average season, I get the feeling this could be a bad one if we are starting this early.

I live in the Jacksonville area and would love to talk to some local preppers. I just started a group called Northeast Florida Prepper Alliance. We are looking for new members who want to share their prepping knowledge with others. Email me if you have any questions

Looking to join a group. This has been a learning experience for me. Myself I am an 8 year veteran. My specialty was Aircraft Mechanic, but it came with a host of other experiences in which I developed other skills as well. I would expand on my other skills if you communicate with me. I have worked on joining a family which I thought were really great, Too bad communication had a falling out of things and now I have things to figure out, due to not having a plan B my agenda is to be part of a group who are ethical. I will figure it out, but the objective is to be with like minded people, prepare, learn and help with sustainability and perhaps there are people out there who wish to have someone with these qualities to be part of their group. I have experience in many areas that I can contribute to the community. Although I am not looking to be part of a militia, I do have arms and firmly believe in the 2nd amendment, so I hope you O.K with that. I am new to this point of view and the basis of preparation is information and doing what is necessary to be as prepared as possible. I have no alcohol issues or drug issues and prefer to stay away from people that do, I am not a religious fanatic, but prefer someone with spiritual common sense if such a phrase exist. I prefer honesty over political correctness which tend to speak in a language empty of details and facts. I am security conscious so I am careful, not because I am paranoid but because bad people do exist or people with no security awareness expose their vulnerabilities putting good people at risk. I currently live in the Bay area in FL, looking up in the Pensacola or lower Alabama area.  I want to thank you ahead of time for reading this post.

Hi, I have little experience prepping but I think I could contribute a lot to a group. I have been hard working my whole life and I have experience with hunting and survival somewhat. Im a pretty good shot with guns, better with snipers/rifles. I use a crossbow for hunting mostly. I was in marine corps JROTC all throughout high school and it taught me a lot of discipline.

If your a General Surgeon and living near or in region #3 (Levy County) Florida we are interested in you.  We are a group of survivalist/preppers that have our own isolated bug-out-location established.  We already have medical professionals and other skilled survivalist in our group but we would like to add a skilled general surgeon to our group.  We prefer married couples so keep that in mind if you reply.   The following are requirements:  You must be of the Christian faith, have good morals and be trustworthy, no history of mental, substance or alcohol abuse.  No previous felony record. 

If you are not a surgeon please do not respond to this post.

ok–here goes. let’s get this out of the way—WE ARE SENIORS and retired. we are not hard core preppers but believe in being ready which may qualify as prepping. currently live in low lands of orlando fl–nice but not the best area for surviving longer term. we are looking for north ga, or ozark plateau are to resettle. Unfortunately spent out lives raising kids and working not in any trades tho. no real skills to offer any hard core group so not looking for this because can’t contirbute the way they want. was wondering if there are any like minded people out there that have “seniors” ready to help each other and get ready for whatever. we are mobile, regular church goers. and have been getting ready some but are waiting to get to an area and then go all out to get what we need–feel there is no sense trying to get things here and then trying to move them northward. will be definitely going north to above area just looking for the right community,
any thoughts suggestions would be appreciated.
P.S. I am surprised how little communications or ideas are out there for seniors —maybe like us they got or are too complacent. believe me packing up to move at our age is not high on our list but I am convinced the SWHTF starting wih financial , then biblical / natural events/ then government not neccesarily in that order.
thanks for reading

I completely understand the need to be thorough in making preparations for a variety of scenarios and that is what my family has been doing for several years now while learning new skills, raising 6 children, and learning to be genuine lovers and seekers of Messiah. For me, leaving a legacy of love and dedication to my Savior through God-honoring pursuits is very important yet I also have an urgency within to help my husband and 17 y.o son be best prepared for whatever disastrous circumstances arise. So while they study, work, develope various skills, make all sorts of purchases, and pray together for our family and so many important issues, I finally arrive to this site in hopes of gaining knowledge, clearer perspective, and new friends (or simply acquaintances) with like-mindedness. My profile has some of our info but this verse sums up my focus as I chose to make this post.

Matthew 6:33 AMP version But first and most importantly seek (aim at, strive after) His kingdom and His righteousness [His way of doing and being right—the attitude and character of God], and all these things will be given to you also.

We are still considering options and possibilities to start a community here in FL or invest the time and communication in finding one that could.

We are interested in communicating with others to see options for further preparedness-training and would consider relocating to a safer, low population area in or near mountains with an established community or near a good BOL where a strong Christian group is pulling together and welcomes hardworking, trustworthy, healthy ppl with several well-behaved kids and MANY of our own provisions.

Husband, wife, 15 year old child, two dogs and cat living in an RV. We had a farmstead in Upstate NY but couldn’t afford to keep it. We would like to work on a farmstead of someone that would allow us to park our RV on a site with electric, water, and septic. I have strong computer skills with a Masters in Educational Technology, a Bach in Theology. Strong Faith in the Bible as God’s inflatable word. Could also help with tutoring children with my math and science skills.

Hello fellow preppers. Me & my wife have been preppering for the last 4 years. About a year ago we decided to start up a prepping group because numbers will be stronger when SHTF. So far the group is growing. We are looking for Like minded preppers who are serious & are willing to train. If you want to be apart of a group of like minded individuals who will survive then contact me at [email protected](dot)com

If your new to prepping don’t worry, we will welcome anyone who is Like minded. Just know that this is a group of individuals who are moving forward with our preppering & training so make sure that your willing to participate. We don’t want to waste our time or yours. With everything going on in the world we don’t believe that we have anytime to waste. For all my veteran preppers we hope to hear from you soon.

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…

I’m a senior citizen, living alone (not by choice) and debating how and who I could help with prepping.  I’m a life time outdoorsman, hunter, fisherman and prepper. I guess it’s the boy scout in me.  I live on the west coast of Florida near the gulf in Citrus County.  I waste a lot of time and would be happy to help anyone I can who lives around my area.  I am very active and refuse to just set and rot.  Drop me a note if I can help…Ray

Hi:

I’m new to this site but have been prepping for quite some time. Looking to communicate with other preppers in the SW Florida area. There are a few of us “like minded” preppers within our small group and would like to band with other preppers in our area for when it hits the fan. Please let me know. Thanks!
