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

Still thank you for your emails concerning our search, they keep coming all month long ))

We believe preppers or future thinkers have learned to accept we will not be immune to the repercussions of the many possible and certainly some very for sure events heading our way. God says the rains will fall on the just and unjust equally. Funny thing so does History when you review it. Notice in some regions the rain is not falling anymore. . . So you do not get a pass on this.
Reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded people has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning more and more why so few people ever end up joining together. Let alone moving from planning to doing. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns and honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster is very KEY to making it work and staying intact. Also facing the truth that unless all the members pull their own weight and maintain their own self-drive the human default nature of letting others do more begins to creep in. In establishing our priorities we have learned some things, such as we cannot please all the so called preppers all the time and we cannot be all things to all preppers. Oh well.
For us, my husband and I am a happily married and content prepped couple. It is just us two. No children at home, no hidden agendas to drag along grown adult children and their families, no forgot to mention extended family, no possible non prepper future mate to be added in, no mentioned later on elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. That right there rubs out about 90% of posters and talkers ))
Honestly though we do not plan for the near extinction of all mankind; rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most crisis events, minimize the effects of such events and not become victims during them.
In preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated very comfortable survival living conditions. From what I see here that is better than most yet not as good as a few others. This is not a contest between preppers for us either. We can and will do more as we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in. It never fully ends.
Our more recent step in our plan has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like accomplishments to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some seem to be critical of other preppers who look at things differently which to us says much about them. Others have some veiled mission to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not wish to be and have nothing to offer to boot. Then as usual so many have put aside so little and on top of that cannot afford to do it now yet want to join with others who have? That just seems so not fair and not right to, how about you?
So if the above might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us *thanks anyway* ))
Through all this we have established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. They already have a retreat location and all we were looking for so we have teamed up with them and they want us and what we have done. Although our current numbers are few because we actually have standards, we do have in place the means with no additional building or costs to accommodate many more. Working together it must be accepted that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with no hope.
If you are of the same mind that solid preppers really need each other now more than ever then contact us. If you are a interested (adult ,couple, or family with older children) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for 12-14 hours per day during a critical crisis event at the retreat to stand watch, help with needed chores and do so with a cheerful heart then drop us a line.
So if you sense the urgency to take action, wrap up a plan and put it to rest then ask God if this is something which could be right for you. If so sent us an email back and we will shift off this site to a more private line of communication.

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.

Family of six maybe seven looking to move with 30 to 60 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready 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 have my own tools and equipment, food, water filter, some weapons and ammo, camper to live in till living structure is built.  Looking to build a CEB (compressed earth block) living structure.  I am also building my own CEB press.  If we joined a group, we will need at least 1-2 acre to build and live on.  We want to help others do the same, also willing to work on the common area preparing it for when it all falls apart.   I am learning every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  I also have the material to build a shop 39’x40′ with CEB walls from local soil.  I have two sons (21 & 30) a daughter (23) with 16 month old son (possibly a son-in-law) and a wife 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 a irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone 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 equipment and more.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder and rioting with families who were not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  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 and Las Cruces N.M, then Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.  We are debt free and looking for a group with similar 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.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

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”?? :-) )

Again thank you for your emails concerning our search))

Reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded people has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning more and more why so few people ever end up joining together and if so, not for very long. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns and honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster is very Key to making it work and staying intact. In establishing our priorities we have learned some things, such as we cannot please all the so called preppers all the time and we cannot be all things to all preppers. Oh well.

For us, my husband and myself are a happily married and content prepped couple. It is just us two. No children at home, no hidden agendas to drag along grown adult children and their families, no forgot to mention extended family, no mentioned later on elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. Honestly we do not plan for the near extinction of all mankind, rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most crisis events, minimize the effects of such events and not become victims during them.

In preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated survival living conditions. From what I see here that is better than most yet not as good as a few others. This is not a contest between preppers for us either. We can and will do more as we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in.

Our more recent step in our plan has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like accomplishments to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some seem to be critical of other preppers who look at things differently which to us says much about them. Others have some veiled mission to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not want to be and have nothing to boot. So if the above might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us *thanks anyway* )) Not being forth right and honest up front is a good way to get cut off.

Through all this we have established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. Being they already have a retreat location and all we were looking for we have teamed up with them and they with us. In doing this we accepted that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with no hope. We have also developed some deep trustworthy friendships to count on.

If you are of the same mind that solid preppers really need each other now more than ever then contact us. If you are a (young adult or adult) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for 12-14 hours per day during a critical crisis event at the retreat to stand watch, help with needed chores and do so with a cheerful heart then drop us a line.

Give yourself a chance at putting the prepping quest to rest and consider emailing us. Remember no one is perfect, no one has all the answers yet together we might just make a good fit.

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

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

Thanks

Again thank you for your emails concerning this ))
Reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded people has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning why few people ever end up joining together and if so not for very long. Oh well.
As more recently mentioned we are a happily married prepped couple. No baggage, no children grown up or not and no others in tow. We have put in the research time, acquiring effort and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of emergency living. From what I see here better than most yet not as good as a few others. We can and will do more as we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in.
Our more recent goal now has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like results to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some are still going their own individual ways seeming not willing to risk getting closely involved with similar preppers. Some are just critical of other preppers they have met which to us says much about themselves. Others have some veiled mission to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not want to be and have nothing to boot. If the above might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us *thanks anyway* ))
To be honest we do not feel we have the luxury of time to dilly dally and wait and see if other people’s plans or hopes ever happen. We do know this though, it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with no hope.
Since we had been posting we wished to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group working together we have received several emails concerning just this. As per the goal of wanting results and not dreams and ridiculous expectations from people we are now building a long term relationship with a group up here. Of course we are all are working out some things which is always expected. That will never change, so what else is new? We will not waste time in life like some others kicking the can down the road looking for the “perfect situation”. If you are interested in all this then contact me. But please do not do it to *network* or whatever. This is not some social media topic to me. I just do not understand how that will profit us.
If you are of the same mind that we really need each other more now instead of still being alone next year wanting our own ways, pointing fingers and condemning other preppers and clutching at wishful plans to see if they maybe someday will pan out then- give this a chance.

Again thank you all for the emails about this )

From my previous posting as I am still learning here. As stated I am happily married, so no I am not a single woman prepper with two years of food and supplies. Our two year supplies are for each of the two of us. We have no children or family baggage along this subject line. We both can defend ourselves and our belongings. Since we had stated we wished to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group working together we have received several emails concerning this.

We have now visited with some various regional preppers along these lines and now we are building a long term relationship  with a group up here. We do not waste time in life and also feel we might not have the luxury of licking the can down the road. They liked us because we had actually done something for ourselves which showed initiative and accomplishment. We like them because they also have backed up their talk with results. We are happily working through somethings which always arise when starting out working together. That is just daily life. This does not change our desire to still meet others with a solid list of accomplishments. If we were at all honest about any of this we would all realize there are so very few of us around and we all need to adjust, give and take and work with each other. It is not a competition as some pursue just the simple understanding it will take more than one or two of us spread all over the place.

To mention again, due to some emails I have gotten we will not risk working with people who have not fulfilled some long duration of supplies and do not work with surviving of the wilds as berry pickers perfecting their bush crafting skills either. Gather wild berries is a great side dish to a real meal. Again I do not wish to seem harsh but so far few have expressed any serious progress in prepping and the desire to pool together when they contact us so perhaps this will save us both some time?

If you agree we need each other and have gotten it done so to speak just send something to,

I posted last month and received several replies. Thank you.

I sense I should clarify some points from my last posting as I am learning here. First I am happily married, so no I am not a single woman prepper with two years of food and supplies. We have no children or concerns like that either. We jointly have two years for both of us. Second we both can defend ourselves and our belongings. Next we wish to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group, then if the need arises stage ourselves together in one agreed upon location. I am not interested in loners.

To be clear due to inquires I have gotten we will not risk working with people who have not fulfilled some long duration of supplies and do not work with berry pickers perfecting their bush living skills either. Anyway I do not wish to seem harsh but so far no one has expressed any serious progress in prepping and the desire to pool together when they contact us so perhaps this will save us both some time?

Just private message me or send something to cindygirl [at] hush [dot] com

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. Our site is http://omegatacticalandsurvival.webs.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 :)

fp [at] Reagan [dot] com

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.

I have found an 80 acre site in Mountain Home Idaho. No restrictions and no zoning. It is only 35,900. If a few of us went in on it together we could build an off grid site. Anyone interested?

Greetings,

As the title reads, we are a Christian family (3 plus one dog) considering to relocate to a friendlier community and wanted to see what’s out there. Have been prepping for a couple years now and TRYING to open our neighbors eyes to strengthen our area only to no avail.  In a SHTF sitch eventually we would be overrun or have to BO.   Since we are considered preppers, it’s only logical that we consider our options.

A little info on us.  Mid forties, strong back, jack of all trade helper.  Have supplies, tools, personal security supplies and common sense.  Will provide more information upon request and sharing yourself.

Considering Idaho, Montana, Utah and ?

Strength in numbers and knowledge prevail.

My daughter and our dog are looking to reestablish ourselves. We presently live in Livingston,Montana. We live in our 16×7 foot travel trailer and would like to move it to private property where we can begin to build our prepper property. We would like to be near like minded people. We  are open to other options. We would like to eventually build a solid earth bermed structure, with a bit more space then we have now.

Would like to have more face to face with real humans.
