Mason City here, way North Iowa. I am 31 yo. with 14 years Army Infantry experience with multiple combat tours so far, still going at it. I also have a BS in Sports Medicine and am a practicing herbal medicalist. My wife is a BSN Nurse with extensive experience in critical care and cardiac care. We can bring a lot to the table and would love to meet up with like minded people here in North Iowa.

We are looking to put together a group for a knowledge base to draw from. To start we want to have monthly meeting at a central location with a learning goal in mind each month. Each member of the group will be able to contribute from their own subject matter expertise.

If things go well and people are able to bug out to a similar location we could have an amazing group to be co-located with when SHTF.

Please contact me through this site first, then we can work on a more personal e-mail/phone basis.

I wanted to reach out to anyone in the North-West Missouri and North-East Kansas area’s and let you know that you are not alone.

Since moving to the Kansas City area in the fall of 2011 my wife and I have discovered that there are many like minded people in the area.  Most of the folks we have met seem very down to earth and not over zealous by any means or on any level.

We have been fortunate enough to network with several of them and found there are several groups that meetup regularly and are very helpful to their fellow friends, neighbors and countrymen.  Several of these groups are looking to grow and are also looking for people with particular skills.  I have met all of them and my family and I have grown to trust and become quite fond of several of them.

If you are looking for a group of “Friends” to turn to as a support system in times of need, or just looking to network and exchange thoughts and idea’s, feel free to send me and email and I will do my best to assist you in whatever capacity I can.

I live in the Mason City area.  I’m fairly new to prepping but am well informed.  Looking to meet others in the area and maybe start a group.  I own my home and a small parcel of land.  Working to get off grid and become self suficient.

Feb 202013

New to the area, just moved here from Missouri and looking for like minded people to compare notes with and maybe help each other out.  Didn’t know if there were group meetings any where like we had in Missouir or how was best to hook up.

Hi I live in central Iowa and have just recently (about a year or so) started prepping for whatever disaster may be looming in the future.
I have military experience, and many hands on skills that can be very useful if/when a disaster strikes. I have been working on my long-term food and water storage (seems to take quite awhile to get a good supply stored), as well as medical and general purpose items.
I’m looking to meet other people close by that share the same thought process. I would like to meet people that want to share ideas and techniques for storing stuff, and possibly for joining forces, after all there is strength in numbers. If anyone wants to know more you can reach me at schmit1983{at}yahoo{dot}com. Looking forward to meeting and talking to other like minded people!
Thanks for reading

Hi, I am currently living in southern Iowa between Indianola and Osceola … My wife and I have 6 kids one of which is a tennager who comes and goes as he pleases. I have been prep minded for several years, ever since y2k I suppose. I am a Christian first and a Patriot second. We allowed a family to stay on our place during hard times once and it only took a few weeks before we realized why things were alwasy so hard for them.

After a recent sickness lasting about 5 days I realize that none of us will last if we can’t get along and stick together. If anyone is intersted in talking about joining their current group or starting a new group, please feel free to email me. We are on the poorer side of the economic scale, but truly intend to support ourselves and supply our fare share of whatever is needed and plan on helping however and whoever we can.

Looks like most people are only interested in saving themselves, but I was hoping to develop or join a group that was prepared to help the unprepared as much as possible. I am fully aware that we are under the control of a corrupt government and that they intend to disarm the american public. I believe that if any worthy resistance is to be formed that today is the day to act. We all have houses and jobs, but they have dropped the hammer so to speak (:

I moved to Des Moines about 2 years ago and have been trying to find like minded individuals in the area, which has been difficult.  I have been preparing very quietly for about 2 years now…and would appreciate further education and support.  I currently live in an apartment in a fairly urban and liberal community and am looking to get out.  Interested in ham radio, finding areas to purchase land where like minded folks are, basic medical training and firearm training.  Can’t leave Des Moines, need the job…but can commute within reason.  Looking forward to any advice.  Many thanks.

My husband and I live in central Iowa. We are truck drivers, and have 26 years of combined military service. We have been prepping for about 6 months. We want to get to know other preppers, because we know that it will be easier to join with others when things go bad.

May 112012

Hello fellow Preppers…I want to know if anyone else out there would be interested in a meet up/camp-out for the Quad City and surrounding areas.
Most of Iowa Meet ups tend to be on the other side of Iowa and most of the Illinois Meet ups tend to be southern I’ll. 

So I say its time to get US together for a local Meet up and go from there. If this is something that might interest you please either comment on here or send me an email.
wishflhart [at] yahoo [dot] com and just place “QC Prepper Meetup” in the subject line…introduce yourself and what you would like to see…lets see if we can get something going!!! 


Apr 012012

As my profile says, I have been back in Iowa now for almost a year and would like to meet up with people and learn how to begin to prep and gain some skills.  I have military training but no survival skills outside of fishing, would love to learn to hunt.  I am gay so if that is an issue with you then just don’t bother to respond.  I am serious about getting prepared and helping my family and friends survive.  Any questions please feel free to ask.

Greetings to all preppers/survivalists,

We are a type 3 group looking to add a few good members to our group. We are a small, tight net group, in fact three of us that started this group, have been best friends for 23 years. We have helped and protected each other for all these years. I will not disclose the number in our group, so please do not ask. All this information and more will be provided after we see if we are a good fit.

For those of you that are new to this and don’t know what a type 3 group is, here is what it is: a group of  people who intend to live as one in one spot during a SHTF or EOTWAWKI event and aftermath. Though they may be several separate families, and individuals they must act and function as one extended family. This is not an easy thing to do.

This is not a new concept, in fact, it is the strategy that many Europeon families used in settling the dark and dangerous forests that are now the Midwest.

So what i would like to do is talk with anyone who would be interested in joining our group. You can email me at powerhousedefence [at] yahoo [dot] com. Please tell me if you are an individual or family and how many. Tell me what skills you have and can bring to the group, any skills you have, even if you think it don’t matter. This will be the start of an application so please be honest and ask any questions that you have.

Looking forward to hearing from you,

We have a private community of underground shelters. If someone is looking for a place check out our site
Nuclear Bomb Fallout Shelter, Underground Survival Shelter

We cannot predict but, we can prepare for whatever may be coming our way. The ultimate life assurance solution. Limited space available!

We are in Iowa-an hours drive from any major city. 80 acres of trees-100 acres in total land-VERY private. We are putting together a private community. No more than 40-50 underground shelters. Each shelter comes fully stocked to survive the coming financial collapse or most every crisis looming on the horizon. Each shelter will take approx. 4 -6 weeks to prepare. The shelter comes with a 50 year lease. The shelter is NOT for living prior to a crisis. The point of it is a bug out shelter a safe haven when things go down. You can remove it from the property at any time which will forfeit the 50 yr. lease. Property has deer, turkey, fox, rabbit, and pheasant. This summer we are also putting in a 2 acre stocked pond, 200 chickens, rabbits, a gun range, archery range, berms for security all around, fox holes, security lookouts, apple orchard, blueberry patch, vineyard, several acre area for Heirloom gardening and more. This community is completely off grid. We will not break ground until we have deposit in hand and secured agreement. We can only survive what is coming if we join together. Security in numbers. Please go through our site thoroughly and if you have questions, feel free to call.

When and if the SHTF, the wife and I (and the pets) are going to need to bug-out. We live in the Washington D.C. Metro area, so you can say we live near “Ground Zero”. I am looking for people whom we may trust and depend upon. My bug-out location is somewhere in theMidwest, and we need a place to rest, refuel, and we will be on our way. If you are willing to play host, please let me know what your terms of payment will be. Nobody likes freeloaders and parasites.
