I am a retired , 68, single in relatively good health. I currently live in the Seattle area. Bad area for survival, overdue mega quake, big volcano overdue for eruption (Rainier), crime, and the worst of all lots of Liberals. I’m not big on joining groups. I would just like to buy a place where my neighbors are of  like mind and help each other out. I am not flush with money but maybe I can work something out. If you are a scammer  forget it. I  will review everything with a lawyer and have title insurance. I’m not a bible thumper or a church goer but I do believe in the Book, although my understanding of it is not what you would call main stream. I would like to find a young lady to share the journey with. So ladies if you want to relocate, and want male companionship this may be your golden opportunity. 

[Trogg, read the rules on posting here – http://www.preppergroups.com/about/]

There are no mosquitos capable of carrying zika in either Washington State or Idaho, just something to consider. I want to be as self-sufficient as possible without getting too carried away. I visited Priest River last fall and that is the area I think I would like to live.  In the past I lived in vans and I lived in my pickup truck camper for five years do to poverty. At one time I guess I  was kind of a hippie. With that kind of past, I would not freak out when the going gets tough. I am thinking of making a trip to Priest River soon or possibly Sand Point also. Maybe we could meet for coffee. If you just want to talk that is Ok too. I would like to make new friends in the area. trogg90 [at] yahoo [dot] com

Looking for some help and direction.
Thank you,

Hello, we are located 2 hours north of Spokane. Originally from Seattle, moved here years ago to get away from the heavy population. We are looking for another family or individuals to join together with us in the event of a crisis.

We have housing infrastructure in place, gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. We would also be interested in hearing from other groups that are out there.

Also those in Idaho or Montana feel free to reply but please only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Newport WA.

Please private message us if you are interested and we can exchange email addresses. Thanks

Been several years since my last visit to this site, so I’ve posted this to both the Forums, AND main page. I hope. Bear with me as I’m still learning to navigate whatever it is they’ve done with the place…

I will be looking to move my Family come late August, early September, from NW Indiana to Idaho. We’re looking around the upper half of the state, as far North as Bonner’s Ferry, and as far South as New Meadows, Although I would prefer more North, given my familiarity in Mountainous regions. At the Moment we’re seeking to strike a balance between low population density (low enough that if I need to GOOD, I won’t be snaking my way through a labyrinthine metropolis rife with looters and roadblocks), yet large enough That work is readily available. Physical Labor in construction, agriculture, manufacturing, etc. are my Business, but I also have experience in Retail and Private Security. I am certainly not an “Office Guy,” although I am not opposed to it. Just don’t have any experience in the field. I do pick up on things pretty quick. Other things to consider: We will be renting an apartment. Here in Indiana, you can find Homes for rent. Smaller two bedroom homes can go for as little as $500-$750, depending on the area. This is preferable to an apartment as I would need to rent space at a storage facility for all of our preps. We have far too much for an apartment and utilize some of it in our day to day. We would also like to keep our vegetable and herb garden going as canning is a significant part of our preparations. We try to live as much of the lifestyle as possible, in advance. Again, difficult in an apartment. Lastly, we’re interested in a Bible-Based Church that is friendly to those with Preparedness in mind. Once we’ve established ourselves in the area and gotten into the groove of things, we will arrange meet and greets with local groups to see where we might fit into things and be able to contribute the most.

So if you’re familiar with the area and may have an idea or two, we’d love to hear from you. I know I’m fairly specific, but I’m a pretty adaptable guy. Just shooting me some general information on the areas I’ve outlined would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to hear me out.

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

Hello all, I have been prepping for years. Thank God since i had lost my only income for a year. Fortune smiled on me and I was Blessed with over 200 acres of forested land just north of Boise, ID. My adult boys live up here with me and last night I decided people need help. I am building cabins on the property and decided people should be able to prepare even if they have no time. Just an Idea at this time. What if i market my property as a bug out location for those unable to prep due to time? IE. They can buy a cabin for the bug out, if need i can gather their supplies for the cabin? Of course it would cost something to do all this for them. Possibly building a community? any ideas on this? feel free to be brutal.

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…

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

I am a single 22 year old female looking for a group or tribe to join. I have a smart, young German shephard that I am currently training with to run long distances

I just left my job, in search of a group of like minded individuals, preparing for the times ahead.

I would like to note that I am a Christian, and I believe that following Gods commands and trying to walk like Jesus, as a disciple, is the calling of my life.

Although I have little money to offer, I have much more.

I am very strong, and  quick to learn. I grew up hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking, hiking, boating, snowboarding, and getting lost. I am comfortable and thrive in nature. I love to build, serve others and the community, garden, teach, read, write, play and perform music, and share the love of Christ. More than all of those gifts, I have been gifted with an incredible faith of assuredness and optimism.

I am hoping to travel out of California very soon, towards a land and group dedicated to preparing for the worlds upcoming state.

If you have any ideas for me, comments, suggestions, or questions, feel free to write me, and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

Peace

Hello all,

First off, happy 4th of July to all American preppers!

I am a part of a small, Ohio-based prepping network that are looking to extend our membership out to the other mainland US states! (sorry Alaska/Hawaii). We are very organized in our methods of prepping and want like-minded people who can contribute, to come on board!

So some more info…

What are we:

– An Ohio-based prepping network! What does this mean? Basically, we are a group of like-minded prepping individuals who share their knowledge, wisdom and experience with other members of the network. We have our own, private lines of communication to do this.

– What do we do? In ‘peacetime’ we mainly share information and news between one another. The local individuals do meet for prepping meets/range days/beers and we are looking to become more organized (and varied) with our meetings as we grow in size.

– What do we have? Besides the usual prepping resources, we have organization and (hopefully) a growing community! In all seriousness though, we do have a hierarchy. This is formed and enforced through a moderate selection process; each member has an assigned peacetime and post-SHTF role based on their skill set. We have contingency plans, bugout location(s) (working on a few) amongst other things. We pride ourselves in being very organized.

What do we want:

– Likeminded individuals: We do not discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, religion, sexual preference, or anything else you can think of. However, we do select based on experience and there is an interview/selection process as explained below.

– Experienced Preppers: We do have a selection process. This is essentially to prevent freeloaders and ensure that you’re a good fit! We do ask that people applying be actively prepping prior to joining, or have the means to do so after joining. Exceptions are always given on a case-by-case basis but generally we aren’t a group suited for brand new preppers.

– People with niche skills, such as:

  • Medical professionals: Doctors, Surgeons, Nurses, Medics, EMT’s, Combat Medics.
  • Former soldiers/military personnel: Particularly those who have undertaken both training and/or combat roles. Former ‘specialist’ MOS’s are encouraged to apply.
  • Mechanics: Particularly vehicle mechanics.
  • Builders: Especially those with experience building small houses (or similar)
  • Naturists: No, not the people who are naked all the time. We’re looking for people with experience in edible plants, alternative medicine and growing large quantities of food.
  • Electricians/Plumbers: As with the builders, experience with domestic buildings is a plus!
  • Chefs: Anyone with experience storing, preparing and serving food. People with experience in creating home made alcohol also a plus.
  • Farmers/Vets: Anyone with experience in keeping and maintaining the wellbeing of animals. Particularly farm/domestic animals.
  • Blacksmith: Anyone with experience in fabricating and welding.
  • Seamstress: Experience making and repairing clothes.

What we are not:

– A paid membership-based network: We are not ZERT! You will be required to only give up knowledge and experience to become a member. Besides what you spend on your personal prepping, we will never ask you for your hard earned cash!

– A militia: we are not an organization to help you plan your government overthrow. We are about sustainability and community. Yes, we are armed, but are by no means an offensive fighting force. We won’t be going to war with the federal government, teaching you tax evasion or helping you plan the assassination of your neighbor. So if that’s what you want – move along!

– A charity: Our members prep their resources for themselves. We share knowledge and training now. Post-SHTF resource sharing will occur between communities in line with our pre-approved plans.

 

I know I have posted a lot of info, if you think that this network sounds like it could be for you, please leave a comment below, tell us about yourself and leave your email address! I actively monitor this so will reply pretty quickly. Looking forward to seeing whose out there.

– JP

Hi, I’m looking for groups in northern Idaho or south east Oregon lower population areas. I’m 29, on my own , 2 year food supply,basic supplies,Berkey water filters, 6 years experience growing a large variety of perennials (nuts, fruits, vegetables).

Looking for someplace not downwind from a nuclear plant if the power goes down. I’m a quick learner, down to earth, minimalist,common sense, not very religious, love the outdoors. I need time to establish my own land but would like a backup plan if there isn’t enough time left. I understand no one can be 100% self-sufficient by themselves.

My wife and I are Christians and have been preparing. We have also been researching a lot of what is coming and would like to work with someone who is like-minded that possibly has land (preferably east in the Cascades or further east) that a bunker can/is built. I personally do not see any way around what is coming if one does not have an “UNDERGROUND” Bunker! If you think you can be a part of this then please contact us at shihtzu.craze (at) gmail

I am looking for like minded people near Post Falls, Idaho – we are new to the area, recent transplants from Southern California.  I have taught long term food storage and I have facilitated a group for learning skills, ie: first aid; self defense; solar ovens; bartering; etc.  You can contact me at miss (underscore) jl (there are no spaces) @ yahoo (dot) com

We are on 4.3 acres kind of close to town, but still somewhat remote.

Sincerely MissJL

We are in the process of moving to Idaho and looking for a prepper network or a contact on the same page. Please let me know if you are out there. Does anyone have a contact for solar or wind in the Orofino area?

I will try to figure out the PM function or you can e-mail us at conceptsiw (at) aol (dot)com.

Big Picture

Depending on when TSHTF, we will be in Texas or Idaho. We have 3 days survivability in TX with plans to bug-out to Idaho. We will need safe harbors and refuel locations along routes to Northern Idaho from Dallas (need contact with underground railroad in case we run into trouble). Idaho (near Orofino) is our long-term survival plan and currently have 2 year provision for 3 people. We have been casually preparing for 3 years. 100% of my current focus is now on Prepper Plan and execution.

About Us

My husband and I are in our 50s, both in the alternative and conventional medical fields. 3 adult boys that may or may not join us. We speak conservative Christian with common sense dialects. We have instruct/teach/train, gardening, raising animals, rain barrel irrigation, and some solar skill.

Plan

Looking to establish, immediately, a rehab/detox/health resort/dude ranch/survivalist camp/spa/bible/vocation type of facility to train and equip. The objective is to generate revenue for more outreach, land and reinforcement.

Specifics

Idaho 40 acre land is currently growing wheat, hay, and alfalfa. We want to network and barter with North Idaho Preppers for skills in solar water pumps, water purification, greenhouse construction, biosphere resources recycling, labor and kingdom outreach. A trusted family could barter to stay on property while facility is being built and perhaps its maintenance.

Needed

Immediate needs are water wells, pond aeration, 2×250 g propane tank, AC Heat pump, plumbing repair for frozen pipes, electrical for conventional & solar, fence repair, firewood cutting, 2 cabins gutted & remodeled, 4 sleeping quarters & kitchen build out, livestock tending, accounting/partnerships/permits/funding/grants/taxes/licensing & all things money.

For trade

Our bartering tender includes practical healing skills, instructor abilities, use of tools & equipment (backhoe, front loader, various other vehicles, welder), use of shop, use of land, our creativity and sweat equity.

I am new to prepping. In my situation it is difficult to make preps. I am active duty Navy and live in the middle east but I dont want that to keep me from learning new skills or theories about preparedness. If you have suggestions on what I can do now to start prepping, please let me know. I also want to start networking so as to start or join a group and one day have a shared bug out homestead. I am an eagle scout and now am an expeditionary warrior. I am resourceful and have some agriculture experience including dairy, horses and hay. By no means am I an expert in any field but am passionate about the things that I do. If you are in the South East Idaho region please contact me. My email is packard [dot] conner [at] gmail [dot] com. I would love to learn all that I can from who ever I willing to take the time to teach me.

why idaho? montana? well first theres only 6 million ppl for 800 mile circle. next, wood plenty of it. third, sun the mountains break up storms. fourth, most of the lands are owned by 1000 acre ranchers and generational farmers..they will not sell to developers,like a small east coast farmer might. corporations?? corp america has not been able to penetrate. canada is not far.

still more reasons: pacific north west inland empire, american redoubt. is a place of mountains and hills. rough place. the type of place 21 st centurian does not like. type of place a patriot loves. ruggedness is valued, vanity, is worthless.

the north west, has good wind for windmills. the population is lacking so the fast food and consumption economy is not interested. there are other reasons but they are politically incorrect but we know what they are..lloll…

all told the north west is the future. its a good place, it guarantees land space and resources. and an escape from a consumptionist lifestyle. but prob most important a hard divorce from 21 century american society. this divorce is not possible, in other states because of urban proximity. that frankly does not exist in the redoubt. so lets make plans to carve out our future in the redoubt. with lessons learned and mistakes not repeated lloll.

I am currently living in Donnelly Idaho and have been studying wilderness survival since the mid 80’s. I was the owner of ARKLATEX Survival in Shreveport Louisiana from 1998-2000 and had a small group of 8 people that was preparing for the Y2K event. After that event came and passed we kind of dispersed and went our own separate ways. I now live in Idaho and have lived here since 2001. I created the concept of Omega Tactical and Survival in 2010 that is now in Donnelly Idaho and have been teaching wilderness survival, tactical skills and preparedness since 2012 in our area. Looking to meet people in Boise and surrounding areas to network and possible create a group of like minded individuals. omegatacticalandsurvival [at] gmail [dot] com.

I am new to this site, but not new to survivalism.  I am an inventor extraordinaire!  Well, I don’t really invent new things, but I take existing tech and put it to new uses 😉  I’m a bug out as opposed to a bug in type of person since I live in a valley of close to half a million “potential walking dead” (non-survivalists).  Hit me up!  We’ll share ideas 🙂

PS.  If you are the commando wannabe only the strong survive what do you bring to the table kill or be killed type?  Don’t bother.  I’m more of the remove yourself from the equation (because I know how to survive and you don’t) and let nature weed out the obamavoters after the collapse type.  That being said…  If you voted for obama?  You don’t bother either.

Hi I am brand new to the site. I have been preparing for only about 6 months and would really like to find others like minded. I live in Nampa, surrounding area would be fine.
