I’m new to this site and have an offer to throw out there to those that are serious about prepping/homesteading/surviving and thriving. I’m looking for a family, a small group of prepper homesteaders or capable men that have the capital to assist in purchasing 40+ acres of secluded property in the northern half of middle Tennessee. It’s in an area that I believe is safely out of danger (God willing) of the fault lines of Mississippi and No. Carolina. It has the best of everything – wooded & cleared, hilly & level, 4 sources of water, excellent hunting and only one road in. There are two houses on the property that are both in need of repairs. I can assist with repairs, but I’m not capable of doing it all. I’m pre-approved for a loan, but need someone else to partner with for the rest of the money it will take to purchase, do the repairs, get us off the grid and procure livestock for a self-sufficient, thriving survival for us all. Maybe you’re just looking for a secure location to park your camper so you can get through this? Any situation will be considered but you need to be able to add something to the cause.
The exact location will not be disclosed until the time is right (after we have secured the property), and even then, should not be disclosed to anyone outside of our group for the safety of our members and unit as a whole.
A family or as many strong, handy, knowledgeable, common sense, Constitution loving men that can fit into the second home would be welcomed. Someone with a military background would be a plus to help train the rest of us if need be. Mechanical training, construction and being familiar with setting up alternative energy is also desired in one or more members. Of course, proficiency with weapons, whether for hunting or protection is ranked right up there with breathing. Everyone should try their hand at every task – you might have some yet undiscovered talents.
There is always more to learn and always safety in numbers as long as we’re all like-minded. Of course, we’d all have to meet and get along. First approved will help with choosing anyone else that is being included for consideration.
If a family took the second house, there might be room in the primary residence with us for one male.
Although serious about prepping, I’d like to live as “normal” as possible for as long as it lasts, continue preparing and practicing, then kick into gear when need be. I would like to find others that are also serious and have varied skill sets. To name a few, I am well versed in gardening, animal husbandry, cooking & baking, canning, dehydrating, alternative medicine, so I have much of the nutrition and health aspect covered. What do you bring to the table?
Your personal items and preps are your own unless you choose to share (without undue coercion). Sharing, fair trade and bartering is encouraged for personal items and preps. The hunters and gatherers of the group as well as the gardening and raising of the animals, etc… will be doing so for the good of the group as a whole, as not everyone has those skills. Everyone will be required help in some form or fashion, according to their capabilities. Each individuals job will be what they are good at or what they choose to apprentice in and help out where and when they are needed.
Everyone of age or that has something to add will be heard and considered in the decision making process for the good of the group as a whole so that we feel like family and can trust one another. The final decision on any matter will rest with myself and the other primary financier of the project. At a moments notice, the “control” will change over to whomever is the most knowledgeable in that particular instance or situation until the problem is solved. We need to kick into gear and have each others backs in any circumstance we may encounter.
Only those initially approved will be permitted, so friends and family members that realize at the last minute that you weren’t crazy after all will have to make other arrangements. It shouldn’t be a problem since no one will be advertising the location to anyone outside of our group. If, as a group, we decide to admit anyone else later in time, the members will have a vote. All skill sets and what the person or persons bring to the table and space available will be considered before a decision will be made, as will the opinion of the current members.
I thought I’d throw this out there just in case it fell into the right laps. There are a lot of people scouting around for a bug out location, group to join or place to live but haven’t set anything up already. I was a member of a group that sat around and talked, but never took any action. I don’t think we should wait any longer. Act fast. Talk’s cheap and time’s a wastin’. If you’re serious, contact me a.s.a.p. through this site and be sure to leave your contact information so that I can reach you. Until then, keep your powder dry and good luck to all!
