Hey everybody my name is Lucas, I live in the Woodstock/ Roswell area  and I recently ended my time in the military as a medic in the 101st airborne. In order to be prepared you have to be ready for anything including serious injury. I would love to give individuals or families combat life saver classes/ first aid classes so that in an emergency, you would have some basic knowledge on how to effectively treat trauma injuries. If you would be interested in something like that to have in your arsenal of knowledge shoot me an email. Lucasurrea93(at)gmail(dot)com

I’m in my late twenties, married, and have a few skills under my belt such as electrical, etc. Looking for some stable minded people to link up with and perhaps learn some things and even share info.  I’m a person that is in very much control of ones life and not frayed on the hinges and can separate preparedness from all consuming version of it. I’m aware of practical preparedness and been doing enough studies to not be swayed by all the junk out there. I can be reached at benteam2021 [at] yahoo [dot] com I’m looking for people in the blue ridge area or north of Gwinnett

Hello all, I’m relatively new to prepping and wanted to see if there was a group of like minded individuals in the Albany area. My family and a few other friends have expressed interest in starting a group down here if there isn’t already one established, so if there is anyone else in southwest Georgia area feel free to comment on this post or message me so we can talk.

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.

Greetings!  Looking for folks in the Dawson, Hall, and/or Forsyth County, Georgia area. 68 years young, 1967-1968 Viet Nam, Infantry, 23 years as a Poolice Officer, (2 o’s), retired Special Education Teacher, (policing was easier…), living on lake with Maggie, The Wonder Puppy.  Interests include surviving, (high priority), firearms, motorcycles, and my books.  Bugging out is not an option, and I’m anxious to learn whatever skills and knowledge I can. I don’t know how to contact others, but I’d sure like to meet folks.  I carry car insurance, so don’t see “prepping” as an extreme thing.  I’m not out to fight the govt., but would like to meet others involved in maximizing our chances of surviving ANY event.  Was Region 3 coordinator for Ga. Oath Keepers, until today.  Rhetoric will not likely benefit me in a crunch.  They have good ideas, but ideas w/o action produce little.  I think we have a responsibility to support our Police, Military, Fire and EMS personnel, and, most importantly, our community. I can’t do that alone…….

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.

Stepping out in Faith.

Being in Ministry it is at time hard to conform to what one and or others think is proper actions for a reverend in today’s world is. We like to touch base with others of Faith in West Pasco and or near by community’s. [1] God is first then our family.[2] Yes we are and continue to be preparing for what is to be end times [3] I am and we are each a PPP (pistol packing preacher) fowling the Bible fist and then the 1st & 2nd amendments. So we are judged by many that are firm for that and they do not understand what more can I say.

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

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

can you imagine in just one hour your world changes?  Just off our coast something happens to cause the greatest tidal wave man has ever seen.  If you live any with 100 miles you’ll have to time all will be gone. If you live with 200 miles you’ll be on the run, The roads will be jammed, people fighting for the last bit of food and water on the shelves. Shortly the effect is felt across the entire nation.The word from very reliable sources say that 6,000 retail stores will be closing this year. Other top scientist warn of a 2.5 mile comet hitting the earth. Jade Helm is not in all those western states for nothing. This is no joke! I was there to see how things go down in a major disaster. When Katrina hit everyone who lived on the coast had their lives changed forever. Violence was everywhere, gunshots in the night warning of looters. That was Nothing, 911 was nothing compared to what is about to happen.

There is a group of people Christians from the southeast who have formed, “The Southeastern Christian Preppers Retreat”. It will be a place of safety in the mountains where you are invited to live in community. The land has river frontage, room for your own small survival cabin, hunting, fishing, secluded from the danger below.

Currently, we are working on a nuclear shelter for protection. We are only taking a small number of people for now. We need your help financially, and labor. in exchange you’ll have your own place of safety to bug out to or live year round. do your homework and see if I am telling you the truth about the coming days, and then join us to get this work done. truefaith (at) jesusanswers (dot) com

this is for everybody in Fl, Ga, SC, NC, Tenn, Ky and Va.  Please understand! it is worse than you think

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.

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.

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 [email protected](dot)com
