Hello my name is Corey 23/M I am new to prepping in loganville Ga and I’m looking for a mentor and possibly a group if any would be open to having me. I grew up in the woods so I have hunting and fishing skills and some wilderness survival knowledge and I am fairly accomplished with firearms and archery. I also have metal working, carpentry (including crafting high quality archery equipment) and repair skills. It’s obvious that something is going in the near future and I would like to prepare myself and my family for anything and everything possible so any advice, guidance, and training would be greatly appreciated
Are you just about ready to make THE move once you find your perfect prepper homestead community?
THIS could be the place you’d love to live even if the world never collapses … but if it does, life here will still be wonderful. It is just so much simpler to thrive (not just survive) in the gorgeous North GA mountains.
We would love to share our beautiful, peaceful 176 Acres of pristine hardwood forest, pastures, and abundant spring creeks with a few pleasant, like-minded, well-prepped Christian conservatives who will love living here as much as we do… and who will cheerfully pull together to thrive through whatever comes.
Will be selling only a few tracts for each person/couple to have their own private homestead of several acres, with lots of space for their gardens, animals, etc. The majority of the land will remain natural for enjoying common gardens, orchards, hydro-projects, ponds, never-ending pure spring water, firewood, deer and turkey … and forest trails for hiking, horses, and just relaxing. Also very open to ideas like ‘cohousing’ and other innovations; it’s a big property.
BUT… Just what makes is THIS 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 (Planting Zone 7) with plenty of rainfall and lots of sunshine. Lush green everywhere!
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 road where you can vanish into your own private world. Extremely peaceful, private yet convenient location… quiet and secluded, but not dangerously remote. Truly God’s country.
We’re about 14 miles from the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail and 8 country miles to Ellijay, a very friendly small mountain town with mostly like-minded conservative, self-sufficient and welcoming people. Three clean mountain rivers wind through the County; great for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing.
It’s 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. Our neighboring family farm (4 generations) raises delicious grass-fed, hormone-free meat animals.
Perfect Land: All the features you could want on one gorgeous piece of land! This 176 Acres is blessed with ALL SOUTHERN Exposure, rich brown ORGANIC soil, and abundant gravity SPRING WATER… perfect for gardens, greenhouse, pasture, and Solar-designed homes!
Numerous pure drinkable, never-ending mountain springs, creeks and pond sites run through the land (we own to the watershed at the ridgeline!). Plenty of drop for ponds, hydro-power, even fun projects like 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 open 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).
Because of the mountains surrounding our dead-end horseshoe valley, this location provides a lot of natural security, so we don’t have to be highly “militarized” (although security, military and gun skills are highly valued and needed). But the very best security is living in the right place… and being prepared for anything. We can even shut off the only dead-end road coming into our mountain-surrounded valley if necessary! The few neighbors living on our short road are assets; have their own provisions and would pull together for protection.
Most of the acreage is level and rolling up to high level plateaus with great mountain views! The pastures are at 1750’ and the highest peak on the property is 2100’. Excellent cell phone and high-speed internet coverage; cable available if you want it.
Perfect Homestead Tracts: Perfect because you’ll help design the perfect homestead YOU want, situated around the large natural areas set aside for common use. Minimal sensible covenants will protect your investment, but not run your life. I’ll work with each individual/couple to determine what area and how much land they want to buy for their homestead and then customize their tract to meet their desires. Whether smaller or very large acreage, there are so many great choices here. Obviously, the earlier folks will get the widest choices. Prices depend on the size and features of your tract, the terms, etc. All land is slightly different, so we’ll work out each case individually.
Us NOT-So-Perfect (but pretty darn nice) Folks: We’re mature (at least most of the time 😉 ) friends, two separate singles and a couple so far, who have been prepping for varying lengths of time. TEOTWAWKI can occur for any number of reasons, so we’re preparing for most anything and need a few more solid preppers with the skills to round out our community.
So far, we include a nurse, massage therapists, and many skills including beekeeping, canning and preserving, solar home designer, site planner, Master Gardener and Naturalist, general carpentry and repair, and experienced homesteading with livestock on this land. We’re steady in a crisis, determined hard workers, easy-going, and love to laugh! Good sense of humor and a creative, cooperative attitude are required!
In addition to working together on common or individual homestead projects and for 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 or whatever is fun!
Solid, caring friendships can 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. We’ll discuss compatibility as we talk individually.
I have lived on this land for most of my adult life and hung onto it through thick and thin “for just such a time as this.” Been prepping since 2005 (lived here since the ’80’s) and have already been living a very simple life here for many years. I could go off-grid with a bit more time and effort; that’s the goal.
Over the years, I designed 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 horses and a llama). You can do that too! The others have moved nice travel trailers here to stay in until they build their homes. Each person will have at least a year’s full preps stored away as quickly as possible (meaning soon).
Perfect Time: Lately, it seems that the world is rushing even faster to compete for which disaster will be the first to hit the fan. You’ve been thinking, planning, looking. NOW is the time to act. Time is short, so if you are interested, please contact me very soon to discuss all the great possibilities.
Send me a PM here or email at: MtnsofGa [ at ] gmail [dot] com. I look forward to talking with you soon!
Rebecca (BTW… Did I mention “Paradise”?? )
Me & my wife have been prepping for the last 2 years & we are looking for other preppers or prepping groups to join. We wanna meet other serious preppers & share ideas. I have 7 years experience in the Armed Security & Personal protection field.

We are looking for a group of like minded families or individuals to form a Mutual Assistance Group (MAG) in the North Georgia Mountains.
Are you looking to become self-sufficient? Do you realize that you need a community to truly be “self-sufficient”?
I am working towards forming a self-sufficient community in the North Georgia Mountains. You can live there part time, full time or use it as a weekend get-a-way while we develop the self-sufficient community. I truly want this to be a dual use land in that it can be used during good times, and will save our lives in the event of bad (SHTF).
We need an initial 10 individuals or families to invest $50,000 each to purchase the property to build our community. Each person will have property rights for their own portion of the property.
I am an experienced leader and organizer. I have a military and law enforcement background – plus I am a mom and real estate agent.
We will be forming a Mutual Assistance Group (MAG) and a mini-farm to produce our own food, power, security, etc…
email me today – let’s start a dialog! educatedHelp AT Gmail dot com

I’m Gene. 39 year old male nurse living in Covington, GA. with wife and 4 small kids. Began prepping on a small scale a year ago. Food, basic necessities, first aid supplies, etc. Received moderate firearms training and continue to practice 2-3 times a month. Originally from New Orleans, and know first hand how SHTF. Over 16 years nursing experience working in hospitals, and corrections. Can’t do it alone when that time comes. Whether from EMP, natural disaster, or anything else that would lead to anarchy. Looking for like minded people or group to join with and train to have that better edge when SHTF.
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

First off, thank you for your interest in this post.
We are a group based in north central Georgia and we are currently searching for potential new members. Our group is comprised of both active and prior service military and law enforcement as well as individuals from the civilian sector, all with widely varying skill sets. We welcome skilled individuals from all walks of life to apply for membership so long as they meet our entry requirements. However, we are very careful when selecting new members and membership is not guaranteed to everyone that applies. We value the quality of the individual over the quantity and do lot look to become some huge rag tag group overnight. We strive to maintain a group of highly skilled and trained individuals capable of adapting to and overcoming any situation(s) it may find itself in.
We are lead by a board of founding and high ranking members and use a military rank structure and follow the chain of command. However, any issue(s) may be brought before the board and/or the entire group so that a decision can and will be reached by fair vote. We do this so that no one person or faction will hold ultimate power and authority over the group or an individual member. EVERYONE is responsible for his/her own actions and will be held accountable. Since we are based on military structure and hierarchy, each member is given a rank and position by the board based on their individual skill set, training, and experience. Even though new members will initially be placed into a position by the board, all members have the chance to request a change in position if they feel that they are better suited elsewhere. However, the final decision will be made by the board with input from your superiors and/or subordinates. New members must wait until after their probationary period is over before requesting any changes. All members may be promoted, demoted, or discharged from the group by the ultimate decision of the board based on their actions and overall performance both within the group and in their personal life.
We are NOT extremists or some anti-government organization and we welcome anyone whether they be male or female so long as they can meet our entry requirements. We will NOT tolerate discrimination and/or bigotry of ANY kind whether it be racial, sexual, religious, etc. and members who go against this will be subject to immediate and complete discharge from the group.
We believe that family is important and individuals with families are more than welcome to join so long as they are able to keep the two separate when necessary such as in certain training exercises, events, etc.. We try to schedule classes and training at least once a month on weekends. Some situations may require one on one individual training and this can be accommodated IF the member in need of individual training can work out a schedule with an instructor. We train year round and in adverse conditions so long as it is not inherently dangerous to do so.
During training and group activities that are NOT located in public you are expected to appear neat, clean, and in proper uniform. For those of you familiar with military uniform regulations it is a good base for what is expected of you. However, we do not hold strictly to ALL of the listed regulations. For example: keeping your hands in your pockets is fine, just so long as the situation would not dictate otherwise. You’re trusted to use common sense and good judgement and if that is beyond your ability then you are not what we want or need in our group. Below will be listed the ENTRY requirements necessary to join our group.
- A criminal background check is required for ALL members. A criminal history DOES NOT necessarily mean that you wont be allowed into the group. We understand that every situation is different and we take that into account when considering new members. Just be honest and sincere up front and odds will usually be in your favor.
- ALL members must be able to LEGALLY purchase and own firearms and other weapons in the United States.
- ALL members must be in decent physical condition and be able to perform required tasks and participate in training and group exercises . A disability DOES NOT necessarily mean that you wont be allowed into the group. We understand that every situation is different and we take that into account when considering new members. Just be honest and sincere up front and odds will usually be in your favor.
- ALL NEW members are subject to a three (3) month probationary period in which time they will be observed closely. In this period new members may be discharged at any time.
- ALL members must miss no more than three (3) scheduled group events without an acceptable reason within a twelve(12) month period. Missing more than three (3) scheduled group events WITHOUT an acceptable reason within the twelve (12) month period may result in immediate and complete discharge from the group.
- ALL membership applicants must go through an email, phone, and face to face interview/meeting with a current member charged with the selection of new members.
- ALL members are required to have at least the complete set of gear as detailed in the member information packet. (YOU ARE NOT EXPECTED TO HAVE ALL THE LISTED GEAR UPON JOINING AND WILL BE GIVEN ONE (1) FULL YEAR TO OBTAIN THE LISTED GEAR. HOWEVER, HAVING THE REQUIRED GEAR AHEAD OF TIME GREATLY INCREASES YOUR CHANCES OF BECOMING A MEMBER.)
- ALL new members are required to fill out and sign several forms including a full disclosure and waiver form, protecting the group from any legal actions having to do with the actions of an individual member and vice versa.
If you are interested in joining our group please send an email to njwheeless [at] gmail [dot] com . Please include some information about yourself including but not limited to: name, age, gender, physical condition and ability, background, skills and/or training, etc.. Upon receiving your email you will receive the member information packet mentioned above. Also, if you have any questions or concerns please make sure to include them in your email.
Stay strong. Stay safe. Stay free.
Good Morning Folks,
It has been a long, cold winter here in Maine. On June 6, 2015 Northern Self Reliance will be at Square Tail Brewing:
demonstrating engines running on wood gas.
Please come out and join us for some great beer and a chance to see wood gas in action. The demonstration will be from noon until 6:00 or the beer runs out.
We are a group looking for other groups who are looking to make some alliances and willing to work together if the SHTF. We would also like to share ideas and hopefully meet up for training. It never hurts to have groups all over the place so that way if you have to leave your area then you know you have another group who can help you out and get you back on your foot. Our group has a lot of experience with firearms and camping just to keep it short. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and I hope we will be able to work together. We are looking for groups from NC, SC, VA, TX, GA, and KY really any states near North Carolina. Contact me at jernigan09@yahoo(dot)com
Hello my name is Jimmy and I am new here. I live in west blocton ( bibb county ) and I am looking to talk to like minded people about SHTF continuations.
We are a survival community located in Georgia that is looking for 50 people to join us to go inside a large bunker to ride out doomsday or any type of war, economic collapse, civil unrest or just stuff like that. We are looking for people that are hard working and that will work within the community. We need each person to put in $45,000 to build our bunker and once doomsday happens we will all go inside the bunker and survive and we will setup our own community government with a president and a Congress and the Congress is made up of 5 people that are voted on by a majority vote of everyone inside the bunker. Each person will have a job like the community founder and leader will be President but will also work and do other things to help build and better the community while down in the bunker and the Congressmen and women will be working on making new laws but will also do other tasks to help the community while in the bunker and everyone else will be given a job to do that they are best at whether it is being a greenhouse worker, a doctor, a law enforcer/security, generator worker, etc etc. Also we maybe able to do some financing if you can’t put up all of the money at once. Also here is couple reasons why you should join us.
1. Be in a community with protection, community government, food, water, etc etc
2. Same price as buying a personal bunker but with this you get to survive and thrive with a community were everyone has their own job so not one person has to do everything.
Also once the bunker is complete it will have the following
-50 Bunk Style Beds with under storage areas
-11 NBC Air Filtration Systems complete with Blast Valves and Over Pressure Valves
-9 Traditional Wet Toilets
-9 Personal Showers with 1 decontamination shower
-2 Full Kitchens, complete with alcohol burning cook top stoves, sinks
-Gym/Health & Fitness Room
-Educational Center / Library

Hi, 40 yr old beloved sister in Christ with the alias name of Faith747 looking for other preppers in my area or in the North Georgia Mountains.
Had a Vision from the Lord 3 years ago of being a part of a homestead compound and living among fellow Brothers and Sisters in Christ.
Hope to speak to some of you soon!
I’m about 30 and have really just started my own preps. However, I’ve been accustomed to prepping since my parents always stockpiled and prepped. Looking for other like minded people in my area because I’m a firm believer survival is in numbers.
Anyone out there down 75 or 19/41?
new to these forums and not sure how to use them. looking for people in middle ga area.
Howdy, we are looking to join some good Christian people in the North Georgia Mountain’s or Western North Carolina. We both have skills in building, hunting, fishing, gardening. We have a camper and lot of equipment. No we have never belonged to a group but with the way things look we would like to join together with like minded people. We are also willing to help buy in to some acreage if the plan is a good one. We are in our fifties but we are young at heart, healthy and work and play hard. You can contact us at fairhairedchild [at] netzero [dot] com or by this post. Thanks for reading~Alleythecat
I’m very new to this, and I shy away from saying hobby to call it a necessity. I’ve been looking for like-minded individuals around where I live in North Georgia, Barrow county to be exact, and so far haven’t had much luck.
For a little background on me, I am married with one child and given my new adventure into being a father, found a new sense and need to protect my family and those I care about. For that reason I have begun looking into preparing for the worst, and I am looking to learn from experienced people/families, groups. I am also interested in possibly joining a group that can benefit from my skills and help keep my family safe should our way of life or very survival be threatened.
I have light training in hand to hand combat and martial weapons, and am currently expanding this training. I am also training myself in the use of modern weapons such as firearms, and own several. For more detail, please look into my profile. I look forward to speaking with any of you!

Hi to all. I am a 54 year old male with substantial farm and animal husbandry, interests in Permaculture, food forests, aquaponics, small “low maintenance as possible” food production models. I have lived in community (twice) and learned alot (one good one bad experience). I like the idea of private land but with cooperation between neighbors who are geographically close. I have scaled back my own ideas of sustainability–after a false start buying some bad land, I now know that I can support myself on about an acre and that four people is a good number to cooperate on a small farm system. To me, prepping is not about hoarding food and bullets and hightailing it out of the city but to already be where you want to be, producing and eating healthy food, and living a sustainable life, in both good times and bad. I am looking for a few good people and a few acres in Texas. No racists, anarchists, apocalyptic-hopefuls, just some nice people, individuals, couples or a small family that wants to develop a mini-farm, and live well. I am in Austin. If there is nothing suitable in Texas I would say that I am willing to consider Arkansas, Tennessee, NC, SC, GA and Alabama. Thanks for reading. Good luck to everybody who is seeking a sustainable, sane future……
is there any peppers in or near Savannah
I have 12 acres mostly wooded way off the path. Jasper county has no interstates and no walmart, or any other big box stores. We are interested in finding other preppers that want to build their own bug out treehouse or bunker. Build a community escape and hide easily from the city. 30 miles from conyers. Really in the woods.
My family has been prepping for 5 years. We are located in Northeast, Georgia. We are looking for a Christian-prepper family to meet and discuss forming a larger group with, based on mutual help and defense, should the need arise. Our skills are shooting, gardening, canning, storing food and prepping. Other skills and details can be discussed upon meeting. There are five in the family, and two others. We do not know all there is concerning prepping, but we have a good start. Serious inquiries only. Contact me at: patrickhenry_three (at) yahoo (dot) com
Is there anyone prepping in Covington or do I have to defend the area alone.
