First off, happy 4th of July to all American preppers!
I am a part of a small, Ohio-based prepping network that are looking to extend our membership out to the other mainland US states! (sorry Alaska/Hawaii). We are very organized in our methods of prepping and want like-minded people who can contribute, to come on board!
So some more info…
What are we:
– An Ohio-based prepping network! What does this mean? Basically, we are a group of like-minded prepping individuals who share their knowledge, wisdom and experience with other members of the network. We have our own, private lines of communication to do this.
– What do we do? In ‘peacetime’ we mainly share information and news between one another. The local individuals do meet for prepping meets/range days/beers and we are looking to become more organized (and varied) with our meetings as we grow in size.
– What do we have? Besides the usual prepping resources, we have organization and (hopefully) a growing community! In all seriousness though, we do have a hierarchy. This is formed and enforced through a moderate selection process; each member has an assigned peacetime and post-SHTF role based on their skill set. We have contingency plans, bugout location(s) (working on a few) amongst other things. We pride ourselves in being very organized.
What do we want:
– Likeminded individuals: We do not discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, religion, sexual preference, or anything else you can think of. However, we do select based on experience and there is an interview/selection process as explained below.
– Experienced Preppers: We do have a selection process. This is essentially to prevent freeloaders and ensure that you’re a good fit! We do ask that people applying be actively prepping prior to joining, or have the means to do so after joining. Exceptions are always given on a case-by-case basis but generally we aren’t a group suited for brand new preppers.
– People with niche skills, such as:
- Medical professionals: Doctors, Surgeons, Nurses, Medics, EMT’s, Combat Medics.
- Former soldiers/military personnel: Particularly those who have undertaken both training and/or combat roles. Former ‘specialist’ MOS’s are encouraged to apply.
- Mechanics: Particularly vehicle mechanics.
- Builders: Especially those with experience building small houses (or similar)
- Naturists: No, not the people who are naked all the time. We’re looking for people with experience in edible plants, alternative medicine and growing large quantities of food.
- Electricians/Plumbers: As with the builders, experience with domestic buildings is a plus!
- Chefs: Anyone with experience storing, preparing and serving food. People with experience in creating home made alcohol also a plus.
- Farmers/Vets: Anyone with experience in keeping and maintaining the wellbeing of animals. Particularly farm/domestic animals.
- Blacksmith: Anyone with experience in fabricating and welding.
- Seamstress: Experience making and repairing clothes.
What we are not:
– A paid membership-based network: We are not ZERT! You will be required to only give up knowledge and experience to become a member. Besides what you spend on your personal prepping, we will never ask you for your hard earned cash!
– A militia: we are not an organization to help you plan your government overthrow. We are about sustainability and community. Yes, we are armed, but are by no means an offensive fighting force. We won’t be going to war with the federal government, teaching you tax evasion or helping you plan the assassination of your neighbor. So if that’s what you want – move along!
– A charity: Our members prep their resources for themselves. We share knowledge and training now. Post-SHTF resource sharing will occur between communities in line with our pre-approved plans.
I know I have posted a lot of info, if you think that this network sounds like it could be for you, please leave a comment below, tell us about yourself and leave your email address! I actively monitor this so will reply pretty quickly. Looking forward to seeing whose out there.
Are you just about ready to make THE move once you find your perfect prepper homestead community?
THIS could be the place you’d love to live even if the world never collapses … but if it does, life here will still be wonderful. It is just so much simpler to thrive (not just survive) in the gorgeous North GA mountains.
We would love to share our beautiful, peaceful 176 Acres of pristine hardwood forest, pastures, and abundant spring creeks with a few pleasant, like-minded, well-prepped Christian conservatives who will love living here as much as we do… and who will cheerfully pull together to thrive through whatever comes.
Will be selling only a few tracts for each person/couple to have their own private homestead of several acres, with lots of space for their gardens, animals, etc. The majority of the land will remain natural for enjoying common gardens, orchards, hydro-projects, ponds, never-ending pure spring water, firewood, deer and turkey … and forest trails for hiking, horses, and just relaxing. Also very open to ideas like ‘cohousing’ and other innovations; it’s a big property.
BUT… Just what makes is THIS land a “Perfect Prepper Paradise”? (aside from us nice folks, of course ) Glad you asked!
Perfect Climate: Our local mountain ranges create a wonderful micro-climate around us… four lovely seasons, and our moderate summers and winters are even milder than the counties just above and below us. No humidity and no need for air conditioning with a good design. I (Rebecca) designed my mostly glass passive solar home (heated only by the sun and my wood stove) and have not needed AC in 20 years! Our growing season is very long (Planting Zone 7) with plenty of rainfall and lots of sunshine. Lush green everywhere!
Perfect Location: Ellijay (in Gilmer County) is a truly beautiful and sparsely-populated agricultural community in the gorgeous, green mountains of the Chattahoochee National Forest, about 40 miles south of the GA-TN-NC border.
Our ranch is off the beaten track near the end of a quiet dead-end road where you can vanish into your own private world. Extremely peaceful, private yet convenient location… quiet and secluded, but not dangerously remote. Truly God’s country.
We’re about 14 miles from the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail and 8 country miles to Ellijay, a very friendly small mountain town with mostly like-minded conservative, self-sufficient and welcoming people. Three clean mountain rivers wind through the County; great for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing.
It’s a wonderful place to live and enjoy while life is “normal” and a very safe place to be if everything collapses. (Think “Mayberry” in the mountains with a strong Constitutional Sheriff!) Small family farms are abundant: apple orchards, vineyards, organic grass-fed beef, chickens, etc. Our neighboring family farm (4 generations) raises delicious grass-fed, hormone-free meat animals.
Perfect Land: All the features you could want on one gorgeous piece of land! This 176 Acres is blessed with ALL SOUTHERN Exposure, rich brown ORGANIC soil, and abundant gravity SPRING WATER… perfect for gardens, greenhouse, pasture, and Solar-designed homes!
Numerous pure drinkable, never-ending mountain springs, creeks and pond sites run through the land (we own to the watershed at the ridgeline!). Plenty of drop for ponds, hydro-power, even fun projects like waterwheels.
The ridgeline runs along our North property line for great protection, which means ALL of the land faces south. Several acres are already in pasture and open for gardens, orchards, etc. The majestic old-growth forest with huge mature hardwoods, laurels, ferns and abundant wildlife is a serene sanctuary and provides great hunting (deer & big turkey).
Because of the mountains surrounding our dead-end horseshoe valley, this location provides a lot of natural security, so we don’t have to be highly “militarized” (although security, military and gun skills are highly valued and needed). But the very best security is living in the right place… and being prepared for anything. We can even shut off the only dead-end road coming into our mountain-surrounded valley if necessary! The few neighbors living on our short road are assets; have their own provisions and would pull together for protection.
Most of the acreage is level and rolling up to high level plateaus with great mountain views! The pastures are at 1750’ and the highest peak on the property is 2100’. Excellent cell phone and high-speed internet coverage; cable available if you want it.
Perfect Homestead Tracts: Perfect because you’ll help design the perfect homestead YOU want, situated around the large natural areas set aside for common use. Minimal sensible covenants will protect your investment, but not run your life. I’ll work with each individual/couple to determine what area and how much land they want to buy for their homestead and then customize their tract to meet their desires. Whether smaller or very large acreage, there are so many great choices here. Obviously, the earlier folks will get the widest choices. Prices depend on the size and features of your tract, the terms, etc. All land is slightly different, so we’ll work out each case individually.
Us NOT-So-Perfect (but pretty darn nice) Folks: We’re mature (at least most of the time 😉 ) friends, two separate singles and a couple so far, who have been prepping for varying lengths of time. TEOTWAWKI can occur for any number of reasons, so we’re preparing for most anything and need a few more solid preppers with the skills to round out our community.
So far, we include a nurse, massage therapists, and many skills including beekeeping, canning and preserving, solar home designer, site planner, Master Gardener and Naturalist, general carpentry and repair, and experienced homesteading with livestock on this land. We’re steady in a crisis, determined hard workers, easy-going, and love to laugh! Good sense of humor and a creative, cooperative attitude are required!
In addition to working together on common or individual homestead projects and for mutual security, we want the solid foundation of a community built on good-natured, reliable, supportive friendships. Really get to know and like each other, quirks and all, by making the time to get together for cook-outs, games, music or whatever is fun!
Solid, caring friendships can be the glue that gets us through the rough times. Although we’re all strong, independent personalities, it is paramount to have a compatibility of attitudes, faith, ideas and goals so we’re all pulling in the same direction when it matters most, with the least amount of friction. We’ll discuss compatibility as we talk individually.
I have lived on this land for most of my adult life and hung onto it through thick and thin “for just such a time as this.” Been prepping since 2005 (lived here since the ’80’s) and have already been living a very simple life here for many years. I could go off-grid with a bit more time and effort; that’s the goal.
Over the years, I designed my passive solar home; built a pond off one of the springs; have a gusher of a well, plus back-up gravity water from another pure spring high up the mountain; cleared and fenced the pastures (have horses and a llama). You can do that too! The others have moved nice travel trailers here to stay in until they build their homes. Each person will have at least a year’s full preps stored away as quickly as possible (meaning soon).
Perfect Time: Lately, it seems that the world is rushing even faster to compete for which disaster will be the first to hit the fan. You’ve been thinking, planning, looking. NOW is the time to act. Time is short, so if you are interested, please contact me very soon to discuss all the great possibilities.
Send me a PM here or email at: MtnsofGa [ at ] gmail [dot] com. I look forward to talking with you soon!

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

create sustainable group
Have 100+ acres of hardwood & rocks, w/plenty of water – supremely defensible – need partners to develop. Beautiful rural area, some farms/tiny villages surrounded by thousands and thousands of acres of public access forest.
20 mi.s from tiny resortish village for odds & ends of employment – ski areas for one thing.
15 mi. from a very greeny/hippy small college town that is the county seat, has all sorts of Ag. Stores & a farmer’s market as well as a decent hospital.
I have an excavator, and a farm tractor w/a loader, will be buying a dumptruck soon to begin developing the land into a defensible farm retreat.
Also have bandsaw mill, woodsplitter, all construction tools & equipment – generators, etc., etc… 30 yrs. as a carpenter/builder/developer before becoming a realtor .
Meanwhile continuing to develop present 6 acre mini-farm 1/2 hr. away for gardening & animals until big project is more under way.
At this point there are others who are interested, and I have placed 2 big travel trailers on the land . One to be enclosed in a solar double garage for temporary housing for myself . Your temporary housing would be welcome if you are in sync w/me.
No offense but please don’t contact me unless you are seriously considering a move to a group in a safer place, and please understand that my project is not developed, and will require a lot of physical work, but also – you will be on the ground floor, so to speak.
Thank you, and good luck to you all in this New Year .
My family and I have 30+ acres in Waldo County, Maine. Ultimately, we are going to move there, but we still have some obligations in Southcoast MA (aging parent, income tied to MA for the time being) keeping us here for a short while longer. However, We have a cabin built, and are using permaculture principals to design long term food sustainability. I don’t know how much time there is before things get really bad, but we would like to network with others in the area, and hopefully get some group prepping efforts going.
I am an herbalist, focusing on herbs for a post-collapse world, with some midwifery training. My husband is a beekeeper and working towards becoming a krav maga instructor. We homeschool our kids, enjoy shooting, gardening, and homebrewing. Hoping to meet some prepper families close to us in Maine. If there are any in MA, especially in eastern MA, I’d welcome the contact as well. Thanks!
Hi, I’m a beginning Prepper here in Hancock County Maine. Just wondering if Anyone in the area is on here!
