Would like to find a group in Southern Georgia to join.Please contact me.Will answer all questions honestly.
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.
My name is James, I am (soon to be formerly) military, grew up in the woods and will soon be moving back to the hills where I grew up. I am not really looking to relocate or move in with someone, as I have a piece of land in mind, nor at this time, am I looking to take someone in. I have a small family and a couple individuals, and I would like to get firmly on our own feet before I consider that. However what I am interested in is any like-minded preppers in my area. Possibly network with other groups, share ideas, knowledge and possibly support each other if something goes down in the future.
I am a fledgling prepper, just getting started, so any advice would be greatly appreciated as well. I would like to prepare for as much as I can, whether it be natural disaster (our area is actually due for an earthquake, FYI) or economic collapse.
If you are in the area, or within a couple hours away, I would be interested in hearing from you.
Leave your email in the comment, or PM me if you feel more comfortable with that.
Hope to hear from yall soon, stay safe and God bless!
looking to email with others about prepping and thriving in the future. serious people only – willing to keep their families alive and well when the government can’t help. covington, ga – robertsranch [at] netzero [dot] net – Tim
Hello all i’m here to present to you a most beneficial land investment proposal that most of you would agree that is VERY reasonable. More info will become available for you once we know you actually have the funds. We ask that only ten people can be selected. the ten people does not count your kids of spouse so they are ok. Also we ask that the ten people have AT least 2k to offer, CHEAP I know. WE ask that people who are interested have multiple skillsets or major one in a big way. We know how the ec0nomy is and that some groups have closed their doors. Well this one is open. Once again more info will be given once we know you have funds. This doesn’t mean that you will have to give it up right away. no scam so that takes care of that. You can reach me at Benteam2014 [at] yahoo [dot] com Don’t miss out!!
Here in Woodstock, GA it has been a little difficult to find ”like minded” people. So I have started a group to bring us together! The group is on Meetup.com .
Quick Group Summary: This is a group for anyone interested in Prepping, Survivalism, Bushcraft, etc. All skill levels are welcome. We will have meetings at least once a month.
Here is the link : http://www.meetup.com/Woodstock-Preppers-Networking-Group/
Hi, I am a mother of two boys. One a soldier currently on active duty headed to a sandbox soon. My other son is a high school juinor. We decided to start prepping and am looking for others in my area willing to teach us as well as network. I have medical training, spent several years on Civil Defense in my hometown state (Mass) as well as volunteer fire fighting.
We are on day one of stocking. It’s very over whelming and at times confusing. Any and all help welcome. We are ready 110% to be ready when SHTF.
looking for preppers in Ga…southeast Ga to be specific. Thanks
I’m a 32 yo old with a wife and small children. We have recently begun to prep. We are very interested in learning more about prepping. We are also interested in scouting for possible community groups. We believe that eventually “blank” will fit the fan and we want to be prepared and able to take care of ourselves and our children. If anyone else out there in our area is like minded we would love to be able to throw ideas around.
I’m a 38yr old single mom of 3 ages 5(girl), 13(girl), and 20(boy). I am fairly new to prepping and would like to learn more to be more prepared. I’m still not sure if I want to create a group (team), join one, or just network and maintain solo w my family! I am a nurse with 7yrs of ER experience, currently attending school for nurse practitioner to practice in urgent care setting in the future. My son has two yrs of Wyotech, 1yr for diesel mechanic for heavy equipment machinery and big rig trucks and 1yr of advance diesel marine inboard and outboard and power sport engines with one yr of work experience.
Other things that I can do:
I’m very resourceful
I’m no stranger to any power tool and can always learn what I don’t know. I am a “handy woman” no job too big or small, I don’t mind getting my hands dirty and a little elbow grease. I can make soap, I’ve done some canning, I can sew, and eventually will start learning how to work my loom. I’m creative and crafty which I feel will help in emergency situation to be able to improvise. I’m also bilingual .
What I have/working on:
I have a bug out trailer, it has all camping equipment ready to be hitched at anytime and be mobile, although I don’t have a bug out location.
I have a greenhouse fairly large (20ftX20ft roughly) made of glass, currently nothing growing, although I have yielded nice produce in the past, I just don’t have the time now. In it I have two hydroponic systems plus traditional planting (dirt) all w irrigation system and exhaust(ventilation).
I also have a variety of citrus trees, lemons, oranges and tangerines.
I have a large chicken pen that has housed a 100 chickens in the past but currently have no chickens, again I don’t have the time or money for them.
I also have a hog pen to raise at least 2 at a time.
I have storage area to store prepping food and supplies but it does not have much yet.
I also own fire arms and have learned to use them. Currently looking for archery supplies.
I live of 5 acres mostly secluded by trees with very few neighbors.
I feel that I have the beginnings of a good setting that I need to expand and create a solid system.
Again not sure what direction I want to take in regards to joining a group and how to incorporate what I have.
It would be optimal if I can get people to help with yielding crops and raising some life stock since I can’t do it on my own at the time. However, my problem is trusting someone enough to help me do it.
I do want to meet like mined individuals that have experience in gardening and what it takes to start and maintain crop inside a greenhouse as well as outside crops.
That know how to care for chickens, pigs, turkeys, ducks, goats and so on. In addition individuals That know about storing and prepping that can advise me as to what and how I should store. I have a basic idea to all of this but I’m looking to go beyond the basics.
Hello all! I am looking for a good down to Earth group to join up with in the North Georgia area. I am a hard working person in personal life as well as professional life. I do have a small backyard garden, do some canning, a bunch of dehydrating, shooting, camping, fishing, reading, etc… I am eager to learn all I can about any topic. I give everyone a positive chance and don’t care about any of the usual PC terms for a person (race religion orientation). I get along with pretty much everyone. Currently I am would be pretty much self reliant for well over a year in a worst case scenario, so i would not be a freeloader. If there is a property or area, I am more than happy to contribute to the team effort.
Let me know if anyone is interested! PM me for any other info about myself!
hi me and my family are new we live here in coffee county. I have 6 yrs mil experience and a medical background, I guess I have been a prepper all along because I have building supplies and networks to get stuff since I left in 2000. my main job as of right now is I am a law enforcement student, and I hold my security pi licence. but if any one here in south Georgia has any room or anything let me know .

new prepper in south Ga. retired Navy 42 y/o looking to meet other preppers in area
I prep lightly and I am moving SouthWest Georgia soon and will become more involved. I know the government is not dependable. Anyway I was looking for preppers to get to know and see if we had common interest in Georgia. Anywhere within an hour of the city is cool with me. It just seems preppers are scarce but hopefully someone will reach out. Im 39 with a family….. Hope to hear from someone soon….

We are born again Christians, who have believed in preparing for what is coming on the earth, both now and when The Lord Jesus returns, for many years. We are in our 50′s and would enjoy getting to know like minded preppers in the upstate of SC.
I am an ex military who has only been prepping for less than a year. Served for 11 years, 7 of those as a number of positions in an infantry battalion from a team leader in an infantry scout platoon, sniper team to platoon SGT. Decided to change career path while still in the military became a logistics specialist which is the field I’m currently in as a civilian.
I am looking for like minded people, security of my family my greatest concern and know that a group of people striving towards a single goal with same ideals in key to surviving. Takes time as it should to gain the trust of other as well as trusting others when the stakes will be so high in a survival doom day scenario. I am interested in joining an already established group or if that’s not possible begin the process of finding families and/or individuals who have a high level of character, morals and same ideals on what would be the base case scenario when society turns on it self.
It will take time to trust anyone as I’m sure to gain trust when our families well being is as stakes. The outlook of society looks grim with every passing day, like to be 100% to prepping.
My husband and I have begun prepping and we want to move to an area of “like minded” preppers. We are looking at moving to anywhere from Canton northward. Does anyone know of any good prepper areas/neighborhoods? Thanks!
I’m new to this group and prepping. I’m looking for like-minded individuals who don’t mind sharing or helping someone to prep. I’m looking for a group too.
Retired Civil Engineer with wide variety of experience in heavy and hydropower construction, 61 years old. Decade-long experience and practice in acquiring and developing high-security, self-sustaining site. Presently beginning acquisition of site in north central Georgia mountains with potential for hydropower development.
Also, seeking partners (active and inactive).
We have a small sustainable farming operation that currently produces a considerable amount of various vegetables along with a large egg laying operation and growing goat herd. We are located in the North Georgia Mountains, less than 60 miles from Atlanta, in a community that is friendly and cooperative. Our great location affords our group three sources of fresh water and a large area for even more growing opportunities. We have a honey bee apiary that will be doubled in size this year. We have a wide variety of fruit trees, Muscadines, blueberries, blackberries and mushrooms and other perennial food sources.
Our property has backup power and energy strategies including propane and diesel. We have mature pasture areas, multiple storage buildings, farm equipment and vehicles. Currently our close-knit group includes two co-managing member owners with one being resident a couple of miles away from the property. We control, through related family investment, a property next door doubling the size of our retreat and securing one border with a buffer area. We also have a surgeon and nurse as part of our team in addition to an EMT. We have current and former members of law enforcement. Our land is fertile and we are presently adding a greenhouse. Basically, we have great deal to offer. We understand that securing a retreat within 50 miles of a major metropolitan area is a challenge. However, we take heart in the community within which we are a part of and the attitudes of fellowship among our local neighbors and extended network.
We chose this location because, in a grid down situation, our metro area members could actually walk to the property in a day, or they could ride bicycles within a few hours. What we are seeking is a complementary group of new members to join together with us. You will have the benefit of not having to acquire expensive real estate and then spend the hundreds of thousands of dollars that has already been spent getting this property functioning properly. We are currently interviewing families for compatibility and look forward to hearing from interested parties who would like to explore a new relationship.
We expect a financial contribution towards future projects and will detail the budget and futures plans for those when we meet. Our plan also includes a financial safeguard for potential members in the event that things do not work out. We also expect new members to be able to participate in planning, knowledge accumulating and work the farm to keep it productive and increase its current capacity. What you take away is a great abundance of fresh veggies, eggs, and other goodies and a new sense of knowing that you are part of a sustainable farm and retreat you can enjoy at any time with your family. You also get the peace of mind to know should you need it – you have place to go if times get tough and you need the security of a well prepared and balanced group.
We are not into overthrowing governments, violence against those we don’t agree with or waiting for the mother ship to pick us up. We just like to provide safety net for our loved ones and a hedge against hyper-inflation. To discuss in more detail you can email me at tangomike3atgmaildotcom.
we are looking for like minded people to work on making a community of preppers on one property that we can use our combined skills to make a self sustaining home for our children to grow For when what ever is looming comes we are ready to fend off those who didn’t prepare and so that we can hold off the ones i have heard say they will just go after what others have, we are currently in ga but are with or with out anyone else moving to west Texas have found some nice property off the Rio. there is me my ol man, three teens an a 2 year old ,we are more than proficient with firearms and working on getting more, have many other weapons an at least a years worth of food i have been canning an growing large gardens for over 20 years we have horses working on cattle an pigs and such have 5 years worth of heirloom seeds in storage alone. we are looking to make a small community of like minded no matter race, sexual orientation,just the need to prepare for what is coming an the need an want to have a community in the middle of no where that can take care of its self we are about government or non government we are just looking to find people like us that want to without any worry know that we will make it thru whatever comes our way
New to this site, strong Christian empty nesters seeking others to share info, etc. We have property in Bartow not sure if appropriate for bol, because it sits off a main SR, that is almost 8 acs. and we have smaller piece walking distance of Lake Allatoona. We have an over seas container ready to be buried for tornado/root cellar, 2 greenhouses, almost all necessary farming equipment, I have been storing/purchasing heirloom seeds for couple years, determined to learn how to live completely off the grid. I am scared of our food, want to produce all my own, I am fed up with major corporations and all this nonsense going on in our government, I say we do not have long before this country looks unlike anything we have seen, you military guys I sincerely pray for because you know what our country could look like if we do not find a way to get it together! If you are interested please email me at gingerdidi (at) aol dot com.
I have a secure location on a river surrounded by woods 12 miles from town. Looking for the right people to join in this survival hideaway. I am former law enforcement, God fearing prepper. Have 8 acres all fenced, well, septic, room for large garden and livestock pens. I cant do it all alone and believe in safety in numbers. If your serious lets talk. No freeriders need respond. Thanks, David
Looking for a group of preppers in North Georgia on Western North Carolina. Been prepping for years. My wife and I have many skills and would like to share with like minded preppers. Looking for a group or to start a group because you will be better off than being aloan. Looking for a good land opportunity to join a group in North Georgia or North Carolina.
I am 29 year old females living East Atlanta Metro and I am interested in joining or helping create a Prepper Community that my partner and I can be a part of should SHTF. We are family of two currently and we are new to prepping physically but I have been researching the “must haves” for some time and I am an avid NatGeo Doomsday Preppers viewer. We have also recently acquired survival books and videos to help me prepare. I believe there is power in numbers and having like minded people all pursuing the same goal (survival and preparation) would be key in determining one’s survival.
I am very good with my hands and come from a family of skilled tradesmen. I have also done some small construction projects myself and have a knack for structural design and materials. Of course I have some basic tools. My partner is has some nursing experience and have done some knife training in the past. We plan to bring our own food and ammo as well as seeds for the community to plant for long term food. In addition, because I have no real training in any weaponry, we would be taking some gun and other weaponry training in the very near future. We are no stranger to hard work and plan to do our part for the group and everything involve.
Ideally, a group that is diverse in skills (military, gardening, survivalist and trades) would be a great. However, I have learned from past experiences that we never know our true capabilities until our back is against the wall.
If there is anyone willing to start this group with me or any group willing to let us be a part of it. Please feel free to contact me at freshg365(AT)gmail(DOT)com.
I’ve been doing the basics of prepping for about a year now and I’d like to get to know a little more. I’ve been a member of a Meet-Up prepper group in Marietta and would like to find something a little closer to the Hiram/Dallas area. Anyone out there?
looking to meet other like-minded people in the area
We have what we refer to as a 24 hour to 48 hour stop off. We have a location in northeast florida were we will form up with one another. It is a well hidden location and off the beaten path. After we meet up there and redistribute supplies and other thing,s we will take more hidden paths and country roads to northern Alabama. There we will form up with more preppers. We will remain there until we have to bug out again if needed. However, I don’t believe that will an issue. We are all well trained and I believe we have thought out everything, from night watch to dig in locations to fortify ourselves. We have all been prepping before it became the “in” thing. For me, for example, my father would drop us off in a closed base on the weekends or more to survive on what we had in our pockets and on our backs. We don’t let many people know the extent of our preparations until we know they are reliable and trustworthy, just because we do train our children. Not just for when the shtf, but also for real life issues like kidnapping and ect. We are more like a close knit family, rather then a bunch of people stuck together like you see on doomsday preppers. We are not saving for any particular event, but more for any that comes our way. We help in knowledge. Every one has to carry there own weight, our reloaders reload, our medics heal, carpenters build, and school teachers teach. We all have very valuable skills, and like most people, some have to double up as others as most of us have a vast array of skills to bring forth so we can survive. We have thirty people in Florida, and close to triple that in Alabama. Our Alabama location is on top of three mountains that hold live stock, homes, a huge lake that is river fed. So even if someone dams the river, we will have enough water from the lake and springs to survive till the dam is taken care of. The three mountains surround a valley, so the children and the elders will be very well protected. We also have all walks of life. This must be expected, as we all pull our own share. We range from old to young, different back grounds and race, to different sexual preferences and religions. I myself don’t care the color of the skin or if they’re gay or straight or if they’re religious or not, as long as when the time comes, they will defend and push, and not retreat and stall. ( Yes, I know retreat to fight another day or fight from another direction).
We would like to know more about you, your views and ideals, ideas you may have for preparing, what you are looking for in a group, your preparations, your experience and training (if applicable), any special skills you may have that you believe would be an asset, etc. Please contact at Looking4kitten (at) ymail (dot) com
Hello, I am new to prepping and I am very interested in getting a bug out location here in the state of Georgia. It is my dad and I
