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

Hello everyone! First off, thanks for such a wonderful website, you guys have so many excellent resources here, and I’ve read nothing but great things from all of your members here.

So, down to business, we are a group of families, 5 in total, that are looking for like-minded preppers in the Western Wisconsin area. Our largest city nearest us is Lacrosse, but we are not in the same county. Our ages range pretty much from late 20’s to mid 40’s and we have varied levels of prepping skills. Myself, I have been prepping for about 16 years now due to my experiences living in other countries and experiencing disasters there. Several of our families are currently serving military, with their members having multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have lots of experience in security, patrolling, survival living, first aid and canning. We have multiple medium size acreage locations that we own and can switch between each if we need to. All of us also have children, all on the younger side of things, ranging from newborn to about 9 years old. We are looking for people who understand the trials, tribulations, and joys that having children entails, since they will be with us no matter what! So anyone considering this, please take this aspect into consideration as well.
So… What we are NOT looking for. ..

1) drug users, We dont “420”, and since we are mostly military, Im sure you can understand our point of view, we cant use it, and cant be around it. So as a base rule, if thats your thing, we probably wont see eye to eye.

2) criminal element or background. We understand everyone screws up in life, and must be held accountable, but if you are a child molester, pedophile, or have a violent criminal history, Im pretty sure we arent going to be compatible. Harsh? Sure, but Im talking the safety of my family here, its first and foremost my base criteria.

3) Extremist. This can range from religious, to governmental. If your friends say you have a tin-foil hat issue, or you start talking about UFO’s coming down to abduct people because “night time is the right time” we probably arent going to get along. Just being honest here.

4) Drama… save it for someone else, not our thing. Dont think I need to go into detail here.

SO… What we are looking for…..

1) people who understand what it takes to be self-sufficient and arent afraid to pitch in when it is needed to accomplish a certain goal

2) People who understand that there will be safety in numbers, but those numbers have to be able to get along, if they cant do that, it wont work

3) Folks with experience in farming, sustainable living, beekeeping, solar power, mechanical engineering, home schooling and HF communication. Im sure that sounds like a pretty extensive list, and yea, its pretty emcompassing, but its the primary areas where we are weak, so it only makes sense to add those factors into our group.

4) Families are preferred, but we are willing to accept single folks with the understanding that if the time comes that this is truly needed, we expect you to do your fair share of chores along with the rest of us. We dont care if you are male or female, as we dont see that as a hinderance or help either way, its the person and the skillset that matters to us.

5) Normal, well grounded folks, with imagination. Because if the time comes, theres a possibility we may be with out power, or running water, so folks who are able to see this for what it is, accept it, and be able to brainstorm to come up with positive solutions, well those are the people we are looking for. Folks who think outside of the box instead of inside it.


As a group, we all hunt, fish, camp and enjoy outdoors activities. So we are able to incorporate that mindset into our preps. We also are all firearms enthusiasts, and have various levels of experience with all aspects of firearms from defensive pistol, long range rifle, to state certified CCW Instructors. Obviously we are more than willing to teach each and every person everything we know, to make all of us more proficient, we only ask that you teach us everything you know so it helps us all out. We all have been prepping for various years, from 16 like myself, to 3 years with the lastest addition to our group, so while we know our little piece of the pie, we dont know it all, so thats why we want to network with others and possibly even add a few more families to our group.

A few other details about us, none of us are regular church going familys, we are all spiritual in our own ways, and have our own beliefs, we only ask that you respect that aspect of all of us, and we will respect your spiritual beliefs as well. We have law enforcement, nursing, soldiers, and outdoorsmen/women in our group, and we all get along because of a mutual respect for each others ability to bring something to the table, and each others ability to get along with others without the usual “catiness” you find with women, and “ego” you find with men. Its a unique situation because we all get along without the usual “issues” you find in some groups. Experts in one area know when to defer to experts in another, and we all set aside the egos to reach that goal. If this is something you and yours are looking for, then by all means, please contact us and lets start a dialogue with each other.

I can be reached at strmfeathr [at] yahoo [d0t] com and please, title any correspondence as “prepper family” so I know what it is regarding!

Til then, thanks for reading, and we all look forward to hearing from you folks soon!

Hello everyone! I currently live in N. Central Minnesota and would like to move west. My job allows me to move litterly anywhere so I’m really not set in stone as to where I go. I’m looking for a community or group of like minded individuals who have started or who are starting a close knit group of decent people.

I am more than willing to discuss any and all of my bio, skills, financial, preps etc. With anyone I feel might be a good fit for me .

I prefer to discuss said personal info after initial contact. Then, after you review my information and after both parties agree, I would like to meet.

I’m just throwing this out there and I am kind of curious to see if anything ” sticks”.

I really enjoy this site and am very pleasantly surprised at the number of people that seem to think along the same lines as I do.

~Take care~ Be Safe ~Be Prepared ~

I’m looking for people or small groups to join me in building a reliable group to survive the future whatever it may bring. I am a 42 yr old male with kids and grandkids that I need to protect and make sure survive.  Although the I am capable of providing for them and protecting them against one up to maybe five, I do worry about security watch and so forth, I know I can’t do it all. So here I am, as hard as it is for me, looking for people that I can trust and rely on. So I’m looking for people and families to help and help mine survive. If interested let me know and we’ll go from there.

I am new to the prepper website. I am considering forming a small militia group for my area in south east Iowa.

I believe that something will happen some day in the future, and I think it is important that at least some of the citizens here should know how to handle weaponry, organize others, and lead others who are not so prepared survive the incoming apocalypse. I am young and know that there is still much, much to learn and am looking for others to pool knowledge and form a small militia for the future of SE Iowa and around the country. Many that may choose to join my group will likely know more than me, and I am interested in learning there survival techniques and experience.

I will say I live in Henry County, Iowa but I would not like to disclose my exact town and I will prefer for now if people just call me Plains-Walker. If anyone would like to join please contact me at my email, my funds for this group are extremely limited but with a few trusted members we could pool wealth and support this group.

hello Iowa preppers I am one of the co’s of old glory a local militia in the Sioux city area. We are not a typical militia we are preppers as well, we also are a family  and community orientated militia. We have that bug out location if y’all don’t have one. We have a well that is never ending. We ask if y’all come bring as much food, medical supplies I.e pain killers, antibiotics , bandages, and bring ammo and guns. You don’t have to have any security training we can train you. The two people in charge are formor military we can and have the will power to protect you. With in the community we have what you can call a government by having one person from each family sit on something like a congress and you will make votes on what the best route the safe haven to do to keep the community safe from any potential threats. We also have our own law enforcement. For more info you can email me at starsandbars [dot] oldglory [at] gmail [dot] com

good morning to you all. Mike here. I am currently living in NW Iowa, and hoping to relocate to NE South Dakota in the next 6 to 18 months. I’m a retired lpn nurse, have studied and used herbs for well over 3o years, and believe in our God given rights as stated in our sacred Constitution. Looking for other like minded folks in the general area who want to share knowledge

Mar 182014

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

I am new and am looking for like minded people to compare readyness levels and prepare better.

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 (:
