Hi I am looking for like minded people around the Western part of Kentucky.

I am a married Christian woman with 3 teenagers. I homeschool my two oldest and next year I will be homeschooling my youngest. To be honest I am not into technology, I could do without it. My husband has his Bachelor’s degree in Cyber Criminal justice and working on his Master’s degree.
I love anything primitive! I am Cherokee/Nansemond on mom’s side and Danish on dad’s side. I love to can, dehydrate, sew, cook, & garden. I have learned to make butter, make lye soap and my own laundry soap. I am working on making shampoos. :D  I am what most would call a Jill of all trades. I know carpentry, plumbing, & some electrical. I know how to operate a chainsaw, put up fences and drive posts, pull and back up a trailer well and drive a standard shift truck (dad says that is important) I know how to hunt, fish and trap. You can email me at either kysurvivormom [at] yahoo [dot] com or farmingowl1 [at] gmail [dot] com   I look forward to hearing from you

I ‘m a 59 year old woman, blessed with a great farm in a great location, but I need friends! Been here for a long time but I don ‘t know any preppers or homesteaders around here ( near Burkesville). It’s not really practical for me to drive long distances. I don ‘t care what age you are. I’m a Christian but not very conventional or dogmatic. I ‘m into herbs, good health, books, history, sheep. My two youngest kids are still around (ages 18 and 22) but they ‘re into their own things.

We are Christians my wife and I are retired and debt free with monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready to prep full time and move to an area with trees and some rain to join a group. 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 rammed earth living structure.  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 also have the material to build a shop with metal roof.  I have two sons (19 & 28) and a wife all in better than average health.   No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this. Thought we had a place but 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),  and other.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon with out power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.  Lived in our camper 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 home schooling.  We are debt free and looking for a group to connect with and then relocate.  This 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.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more privet way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

Hi.

My husband and I are looking to purchase a farm and equip it as self-sustaining.  Thought Kentucky would be far enough away from DC and was concerned about the ability to farm in WV mountains.  I supposed Maryland is a possibility ?  concerned that you couldn’t get far enough away…

Pretty new to this but frightened enough about what I see going on that we have decided to invest in a “bug-out” location and equip it.   Any suggestions as to locations where there are plenty of like minded folks ?   Also would like to make a trip out there to look at properties and was hoping to correlate that with attending a preppers meeting in Kentucky or TN.  are they posted anywhere ?

I have three young adult children, one in law school, one in college and one is a senior in highschool.   I am 51 my husband is 56.   Both of us have engineering degrees.

We currently live in the DC suburbs in a nice neighborhood within walking distance of a lot of not so nice neighborhoods.   also if there are realtors or folks selling property on the blog we would be interested in that as well.

I believe in God but am not especially religious.

Thanks

Theresa

We are a farm just like any other in the southern midwest.  I am looking to network with other people close or far that are already building or have almost built their compound (team) . I am looking to do the same after visiting some other prepping compounds and being approved by them but just not the right fit for me and my family. Being that I have many skills I am looking for people that are the same and always improving what they are doing to prepare. Rare people indeed.  Also, anyone that will have HAM it will be good to have call signs now and conversing prior to any event that happens.  Getting my ducks in a row now rather than later.

We want to bring together a group of people that have the desire, talent and resources to create and execute a plan to supply, protect and thrive in a sustainable retreat in Central KY. I know its not the American Redoubt, but if need be, we’re making our stand in KY. We are 4 adults with 4 children. We looked for over a year to find a good size house with 60+ acres about an hour from Lexington and ten miles from the nearest town. The location is half woods with enough pasture, tillable acreage and water that in a crunch it can house and sustain six to eight couples. One family occupies the house. We are looking for the right couples/families to join us. If seriously interested, send us an autobiographical note containing the things you know we need to know to start this “dating” process. :-) B.Ready (at) hushmail (dot) com

I am new to the site and a recent college grad. I am interested in what you all believe is about to happen and what the best way to prepare for that is. I live in Lexington Kentucky and I am very interested in what is to come, I have done extensive research and I have absolutely no trust in our government.

My family and I live in south central Kentucky and are seeking advice towards eventually joining a prepper community. We are believers in Jesus Christ and are looking to join those with similar beliefs. We have been seeing the warning signs of what is to come for awhile now and believe now is the time to prepare before its too late. We would like to be with our families when everything gets bad but had trouble trying to convince them of what’s to come. I pray that God will lead us to someone here and that we will open our hearts to each other. We are a beautiful family with big hearts and an even bigger story to share with our miracle son. We are new to prepping but are willing to learn and become self-reliant working alongside others. I love my family and want to do what’s best for them. Please email me at mattm1020 [at] gmail [dot] com if you have advice or would like to discuss more privately. Thank you and God bless!

I am moving to Kentucky with saw mill and over 150 acres will be helping to build a BOB with other Christians. will build solar-powered aquaponics system. the extra fish and veggies will be for sale as no store front is needed. will deliver to restaurants and customers directly then when the grid goes down will shift to feeding the group that will retreat and live there. Are going to build off grid earth ship type homes from rammed earth bags. Goats, sheep, rabbits, chickens and other fowl to go with the fish and veggies. Will be looking for others who pass our vetting process to join our small group as we move forward. Central West Kentucky is the location. Opportunity to own your own lot for an off grid house and share the common area. security will be on site. what is yours is yours and will be looked after when you are not on site. You will have a say in the governing and addition of new people to be added once you are a vetted part of the group.    bhnotany-time (at) yahoo (dot) com

We have room for one more serious Prepper!

Concerned for you and/or your family’s safety in the event of a breakdown of society or other disaster? Been prepping for some time but haven’t found the perfect place to go? Consider joining a small, self-sufficient community in the middle of hundreds of acres in Kentucky. This is a unique opportunity to get in on the ground floor of an intentional community.

Due to the limited amount of unassigned space, we will be accepting applications for the remaining space. You are purchasing a life tenancy in your own housing and will share common spaces. Also included is your share of the foodstuffs that we grow, raise and hunt. Your utility bill will be your own responsibility. Electric should be eliminated when our alternative energy is installed. The locked in, one time, buy-in fee is paid in advance but could equate to as low as $150/month for housing and food, depending on the time period you are here.
*This offer as stated is for one individual. The fee will be adjusted for families according to the number of it’s members.

Military backgrounds, carpenters, teachers, welders, woodworkers, bee keeper, kitchen helpers (such as cooking, prep, canning, cleanup, cheese and soap making, etc…), electricians, mechanics, gardeners, marksmen, hunters, skinners, organic farmers, gatherers, butchers, fishermen, muscle, those skilled in animal care/upkeep and anyone well versed in solar and alternative energies are especially desirable. Multiple skill sets make you a more desirable applicant. Anyone having none of those skills (mostly children) are part of a general clean up crew and can choose to train in other areas that interest them. Each individual involved will be responsible for utilizing their own skill sets to the best of their ability at all times as well as learning new skills.

The ability to get along with others, follow orders if/when necessary from any person in their particular field of expertise and be a self-starter with a positive attitude are all imperative. You must exercise common sense, cooperation and have a willingness to participate. Those that are able to be employed are asked to do so in order for the group to be able to increase stockpiles and make improvements for the good of our homesteads, our community and property and a whole. Each individual will do his or her part according to their capabilities.

If this interests you, contact us as soon as possible to state your interest, to apply or for more information. You must leave valid contact information including email address and phone number or be considered spam. Our decision will be made shortly, so don’t delay.

Our family is looking for preppers who are in the greater Louisville KY area. I am a local Nurse Practitioner and my hubby is a small business owner. We are old hippies from the 70′s and have always been preppers. Seems like Louisvillians are not much for this lifestyle like they were up in Michigan. Tell me I am wrong!

We are interested in finding other families who have survived the first Carter Admin and are looking to make a difference in this second Carter/Obama Admin. Keep the Old Hippie movement alive!

Let me know if there is anyone else out there!

Hi again. After reading about many things on this website and through the links people have provided, I am compelled to rethink some of my own ideas. So I wanted to also revise my intro post.

I am a navy vet, 49 years old and kind of a Jill of all trades.  I have a background in electronics and an engineering degree. I have collected my BOB and am teaching myself to do more practical things like canning, wild food id, herbal remedies, basic farm animal care, and permaculture (challenging for a complete novice, so have a lot to learn). I am looking for land and potential neighbors in the region of VA, WV, PA, TN and KY.

The idea of a community is great, but I am seeing from this site that it would be very difficult to achieve (not to mention the time and risk involved). Maybe the solution is to have each family/person buy their own land close to each other (same general area) and agree to barter with,  and learn from each other. You would not even have to reveal your exact location, and could meet in town or other neutral place to trade materials and skills.  As trust builds everyone can (at their own pace) could get more involved with each other,  and there would be several BOLs to go to if your’s is compromised. It could start by someone who has their own land already and feels confident about their general area’s suitability could recommend an area for others to look for a place.  Btw, when I say land, I mean cheap land!  Any thoughts?

Hi All,

I am a 49-year-old female Navy Vet.  Have felt something coming for 20 years and have been researching since. In the last 6 months, I have had an increasing sense of urgency. I hope to find some like-minded, practical, folks to talk with. After the Boston “shutdown” my urgency went ballistic! My credit is not good, but my salary is okay…looking for land now. If you are of similar thought process (and are not looking for a very religious person), please contact me. A perfect situation, to me, would be a large tract of land…everyone would own their own part, with a common section…I am looking at smaller versions I could handle myself, but know that alone it could be much more difficult to thrive. After much research, I am looking in WV, NC, TN, KY, VA. I really loved AR, but is too far away.  I was really glad to find this site, and look forward to talking with you all!!  chrismeier77_at_gmail.com (chrismeier77 [at] gmail [dot] com)

Hello!  Just found the site today, and I have been looking for like minded people in the area for sometime now.  I’d like to be able to meet up with others, share thoughts, ideas, training, and more. I am fairly new to prepping but will help others in anyway I can. Looking forward to hearing from others in the area. God bless!

We are going to start having a monthly meeting in our area.  We will meet off site at one of the local resterants, if you are interested in attending please leave a reply here. I have already been in contact with other preppers in this area, it will give us a chance to get to know each other and exchange ideas and concerns.  Looking to start in May on a Sat. Take care and keep your powder dry. THX MSG

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!

Am I the only one in N.E. KY open to forming a group? Anyone out there that has formed a group, please give me some pointers. I can’t get anything going here. This area is very red in politics and freedom loving, so you would think there would be alot of people open to the idea.

Feb 282013
 

I have some land and would like to invite others to join the group that is forming.  Some will use the farm as a destination (from Louisville, Nashville) and I am looking for someone (a couple hopefully) to live in a 2 bedroom apartment on the 2nd floor of the community building.   Responsiblities will be caring for the animals (5 cows, 5 goats, rabbits and chickens) and crops (to be planted in the next month). Contact kathy at katharine55 [at] bellsouth [dot] net

We are going to be hosting an emergency preparedness expo near Hagerstown, MD, August 17-18, 2013.   Our goal is to bring vendors/exhibitors from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond.  Details can be found on our website, which should be online by the end of the week. I will post the web address at that time. In the meantime, feel free to contact us at beprepared2013 [at] yahoo [dot] com.  Our goal is to provide an educational venue on the East Coast similar to what is provided in Nashville, Denver, Arlington, TX, and other western and central US cities. Please spread the word.

Feb 152013
 

We are seeking individuals or families who are serious about obtaining land for a remote location to retreat.

My husband and I are in our mid 50′s and have been preparing for 5+ years. He is an AF veteran and I was raised in the mountains of WV with the skills of animal care and preparation, farming, preserving, canning, and herbal remedy preparation. We are also skilled in general carpentry, plumbing, with some electrical skills.

We have located 40 + acres of undeveloped mountain land in SE Kentucky that we would like to purchase but we do not wish to finance it through a bank, mortgage company, etc. We are Christians and have plans to start a self sustaining  mini farm with small livestock and garden. We are seeking families who would be interested in joining us in purchasing this land. We only want 10 acres and the remaining 30 acres will be divided up between the interested parties in 5 acre tracts. They are currently asking less than $500.00 per acre.

Please reply here if interested.

I am new to prepping but not new to the idea of how important it is. I have been study doomsday scenarios for quite sometime. I am ex-military and have some skills, but I am looking a like-minded,  Christian people to share skills with and perhaps help me in become more self-reliant. I would to get with a group to possible share resources or just to learn from seasoned preppers.
