Hello, my family and I are new to prepping and are planning on moving to West Virginia soon (next couple years) from Maryland. I am looking for like minded individuals in the Maryland and West Virginia area to chat with and help me learn.

Hello all,

I am knew to the prepping game just started actually and I am located in the Annapolis MD area. I am sort of newly married if you consider 3.5 years to be new, and I have a 2 year old daughter and a son on the way. I am very motivated and do my homework. I am a federal DHS security contractor and due to the nature of my work I can’t really say much more about it. I’m sure you all understand. Also due to my nature of my work I believe that I would be a valuable addition to a prepper group which I am currently looking for. So any pointers would be greatly appreciated. I also have some prepper supplies that I do not need mainly Pelican Transport cases that I would use for work but these are extras that I am looking to sell so I can use the proceeds to buy other prepping supplies. So if anyone is interested please let me know. I am also looking for other inexpensive ways to build my stores. I hope to talk to a lot of you guys soon! —— Thanks

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.

Hello everyone,

I’m so happy to have found this group.  I am completely new and completely ignorant to prepping.  I need to learn everything from canning/food prep/storage all the way through to ham radio and weapons.  I have started building a edc backpack that I carry everywhere with me.  I’ve started storing water, although I know I don’t have a sufficient quantity.  I have challenges in that I’m on a very tight budget and I also live in an apartment.

I’m looking for new preppers who’d like to talk and learn together, but I’m also interested in moderate to very experienced people who can help me and prevent me from trying to reinvent the wheel.  I look forward to making connections.

hello fellow preppers, i am looking for a group of people/families that are in the NOVA area and that want to meet up to practice mock bug outs and learn shelter building (bushcraft) and other types of aids that you will need in order to be a great prepper and a useful member in a team. I have been prepping for around one year now and want to put some skills to the test.  Looking for a weekend getaway to test out gear and learn other skills.
