We are a couple in our late forties looking for like-minded homesteaders and/or preppers in the Owen County KY area. We are working toward making our five acre property self sufficient and sustainable within the next five years if not sooner. We are prepping for possible economic collapse and associated social and financial upheaval. My background and skill set leans toward military, communications, and wilderness survival areas and hers are primarily medical and animal husbandry. We are looking for individuals interested in networking for knowledge sharing, barter, trading, mutual support, and fellowship. We do not intend to bug out unless absolutely necessary and our property is geared toward remaining in place as long as possible.
We are looking to start a Christian Midwest bug out group, with approx 30 families from Illinois,Indiana,Kentucky, and or Missouri.We must limit the individual campsites to seven family members. housing must not be permanent should someone present a problem down the road and is voted (off the island] camper or skid is fine. Each campsite will share work load as we will rotate by campsite. we plan to be self sufficient and off the grid location is off the path and game is plentiful unlike other bug out locations who do not want you their until it hits the fan. we encourage all members to show up often to ready your home and know your neighbors to build a good rapport. If this is your desire and plan to be part of a functional family for the long hall please respond a.s.a.p. thank you and May God Bless.
We are thirty something couple with three kids (5,6, and 12). We have been prepping for awhile and we are looking to meet like minded people in the area.
Looking for a group in or near Crittenden County, Kentucky.
Hey Im Mallory I’m 21 and all the prepper groups ive found don’t do much prepping, id really like to learn more about guns / how to use them along with a few other skills. if there are any other preppers / groups in southern IN or around Louisville KY that wouldn’t mind teaching me a few things let me know – Mal
My wife and I have been peppering for about 2 years. We about have bug out bags packed and ready to go. We are looking for other prepper groups in the Louisville Kentucky area to hook up with.
I’m not sure if this is where I’m suppose to post or not. I’m on my phone and its hard to tell. My husband and 16 month old son and I live in Louisville ky. We are looking for other Christians in this area that we can connect with. We just moved here and have nothing as far as prepping goes. I’m nervous and really would love to have the security to know that we have a place to go when things begin to happen. We are both in our late 30s and don’t mind hard work. Our families are several states away. Thanks and please don’t get too angry if this is on the wrong spot.
Our profile says it all. Ultimately we have a few hundred acres in the country and seek a couple / family that share the same concerns. Just in case something happens where you need a safe place for you family, a place you can raise your own food and be self-sufficient for civil unrest to subside…Please…read our profile.
Obviously if you’re here, you need something. If we’re here, we need something. If we have all this land, equipment, security, you should already figure out what we need a little of. Here is the hint again – We are teachers.
We are a young 30 something Christian married couple, with two young children. We are looking for like minded preppers, to converse and learn from one another in preparation for the NWO. We believe we are living in the end times just as it states clearly in the Bible, and would like to collaborate and formulate some type of strategy for survival. We believe there is power in numbers. We are debt free with available funds, have adequate food and water supply(what we think is adequate) and supplies for most realistic scenarios. Our hopes are to move out to the country and be self sufficient if it is in His Will. Hope to hear from someone at least to possibly advise and direct us to others.

Homesteader/survivalist looking for local folks with same ideas to share skills and such.
Looking for a prepper group in the Louisville Kentucky area, or those interested in starting one. Started prepping some over the last year. I’m in my 30s married, with a family for Christ. Would really enjoy meeting others in the area. It would be great going over thoughts, ideas, gear, and so on. Would love to be able to one day get out of the city, live off the land, and such. Hope to meet others real soon!
I would love to be a part of a group in the Nashville area. I am a single mother with 3 children still at home and my 70 yo mother. I have a good knowledge base of survival having been raised on beef farm but I do lack the ability to pull it all together and implement a total plan. Being able to spend some time around like minded people would help me to be able to build my knowledge base to better prepare for providing for and protecting my family.
Throwing out feelers in and around Meade County (including our neighbors across the river in Indiana) for like minded families. My wife and I are 30-ish former military living in rural Meade County. We have been prepping since moving here 3 years ago and our emphasis is on homesteading and self sufficiency. We are Libertarian leaning and as such try very hard to to be nonjudgmental. That being said, our rural community seems to be less “A Country Boy Can Survive” and more “It’s Free, Swipe Your EBT”, which has come as a huge shock and let down to us. We’re feeling pretty isolated at the moment and would like to connect/network with others who share a preparedness mindset.
We have been prepping a little while, just now purchasing a property in the tri-state area (VA, Tenn, Kentucky) and hoping to meet like minded Christian TEOTWAWKI preppers. we vsn be contacted at AzrielGidon [at] hushmail [dot] com
I am new to this site and was hoping to join a group or start my own at some point. I have just been doing a minimal amount of prepping but I plan on putting in a little more effort. I work a lot so I don’t have much time for prepping as my time off is committed to my family. My son is almost 2 years old and is the catalyst of my want to network and prep. In an ideal world I would like to actually work with others who prep. This may be a little unorthodox but if anyone out there knows of a place of work or owns a place and is a prepper please let me know as my current job is definitely lacking. If not I would like to just network maybe set up some times and places where we can all meet. Maybe a restaurant or something.
Environmental Health and Safety Engineer by trade, I’m well informed and educated and prepped. NOW I need to find groups in my area with which to work. Please contact me if you have further info. Talk soon…
Looking for like minded groups in Louisville, KY area or E_Town KY
Hi I am looking for like minded people around the Western part of Kentucky.
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.

I’m looking for a group in Louisville area to join.
A new prepper group in Shepherdsville is looking for interested preppers to join with us and help form the group. Write me if interested
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.
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.

Since there’s no groups operating in Bullitt County me and a friend are starting one. Any and all welcome to join. Contact me at tommy the llama at yahoo for more info.
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!
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. 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.

Hello, Scottsville family here, looking for a group of people like ourselves willing to work together for the greater good. My husband is ex military, skilled in carpentry, is an electrician can fix darn near everything, and also a good huntsman among other things. I am skilled in canning, baking, sewing, gardening, making fresh butter and cheese . Would like to meet local people from Bowling green, Scottsville and surrounding areas. jtjbrown [at] scrtc [dot] com let’s talk
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?
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)
