I am interested in starting a Homesteading & Money Saving & Sustainable Living & Preparedness Group that would meet once per month in Mineral & Hampshire Counties of West Virginia and Garrett & Allegany Counties of Maryland.

This will NOT be set up as a MAG but more of a learning and sharing group. However MAG’s may form from this group.

I envision that each meeting would have a different topic or project.

Each meeting would be held in a nuteral location and the cost would be $5.00 for the meal plus any materials cost for those that decide to NOT bring their own materials.

I would love to have this group up and the first meeting in late March 2017

If you are interested please contact me at siobhanthomson01 at yahoo.com

It appears that most people are waiting for the outcome of the s-election. Regardless, whoever gets in, we are still going to experience an unprecedented upheaval. 30 years of research and studying have taught me one thing; forget most of what you’ve learned from so-called “survival experts”. Under normal conditions, their advice is accurate and right on point. But when it hits the fan this time, it will be entirely different circumstances. Scriptures will confirm that fact. Increase the odds of your surviving by hearing us out before making the final decision of where, what, why and how.

THIS IS NOT A PREPPER CONVENTION!!!  Please  ONLY make contact if you are interested in attending a gathering on the water of Southern Maryland to make connections with outdoor enthusiasts, hunters, water men and those who wish to exchange ideas about surviving on and off the land.  If you specific questions about subjects not having to do with this post, please find another medium.

A fee for the security of the land along the Potomac is required by the Park Service.  What we are looking for at this time are people willing to share tents, transportation with attendees and/or the transportation of supplies.  WE ARE NOT LOOKING FOR people who need guidance to another site, Conspiracy Theorists, Doomsday Preppers or people seeking to deprogram their children who at one time belonged to cults.  WE are just looking for a bunch of people who want to spend time in the woods and plan our next adventure.  This endeavor will only come to pass with the intention of GIVING, NOT TAKING.  We are not an information source,!

Aug 292016
 

Desperately seeking to organize an Outdoor Retreat for people in and around the State of Maryland who are willing to plan for future survivalists adventures.  Seeking diverse skill sets and any gear or knowledge you can bring to the group.  I am not a doomsday prep.  I am more like someone who can live off the land, barter and trade harvested goods if all hell breaks loose.

Food and water will be provided at no cost to anyone who is willing to go on this retreat.  As a matter of fact, I am willing to pay fees for everyone willing to share tent and/or transportation to our site.   The primary objective for this meeting is to compare notes, make plans, learn and teach what will eventually evolve into a group who can survive without reliance on modern society.  If you are true, not a novice and genuinely interested in this trip, please email me at:  Whiteoleander1890 [at] gmail [dot] com

Aug 282016
 

Seeking Survivalists, Multi-talented innovators and nature loving individuals for group outdoor endeavors.  Must be willing to pull together as a team and be willing to share knowledge of survival with other members of the group.  Members of any gender, ethnicity and identity are Welcome.  If you are truly interested and ready for a meeting of minds, please contact me at Whiteoleander1890 [at] gmail [dot] com.  A trip in Maryland is in the works solely for the purpose of meeting in the woods on terms we are familiar with.  We can go from there!

Just posting to meet more preppers in Maryland. (this does not exclude surrounding states) I am in Baltimore County and just about everywhere Maryland is an hour to an hour and a half away. I am networking with other preppers in Maryland and putting myself out there so others know that they are not alone. I am not inviting you to join a retreat, or asking for your money for anything, or trying to tell you how to prep. I am just trying to find other preppers in Maryland so that we can have a network of people to share information and help each other if needed. If you have a bug out spot or not, awesome, if you have been doing this for 30 years or 30 minutes, great. If things get bad then we need to know where our friends are north, east, south and west. Hope to hear from you.

I learned a great lesson in life about people. There’s people that do, people that talk about doing, and people that do nothing at all.

We’re looking for those that can Think and DO. People that feel, know and understand the signs of what’s been occurring, and has only escalated in the past twenty years. We’ve wasted too much time already, tying to appeal to others ideas about how to prepare. Face it, no matter how much we prepare, there’s always going to be a should have, would have and could have. There are no absolutes in this world. The only absolute there is, is it’s time to dump the log and get off the pot.

There is 2.65 acres up for sale right next to our location, with room on our land for more. We’re 80% prepared and ready to finish, as best anyone can. We have all the tools for building, mechanical, gardening, energy and security. All we need now, is people. People with the ambition, knowledge, ability(financial) and skills to join us. We’ve already spoken with our fair share of crazies, people that don’t have the common sense to take things seriously.

So, if you are serious and realize the urgency, we are willing to share our knowledge, experience, and sincerity in being prepared. We are trustworthy and loyal, with principles and values outlined within the Scriptures. Which means, we do not judge and treat people the way we want to be treated. Extensive research went into choosing this location.
If interested, private message, with email or number. Security protocols will have to be met, to weed out the speculators and spectators.

May our Creator have mercy on all our souls!

The kind of people i’m looking for would have priorities like this

1st family

2nd neighbors

3rd community

4th themselves 

I personally believe in the creator but i don’t care if you do or don’t. I will relocate for the right group of people. I am pretty new to prepping but have dedicated my life to getting prepared. I am looking for serious preppers who have good morals and ethics. If anything i said interest you just leave your email in the comments.

Are you Prepared?

All of the training, supplies, equipment, and practical applications you need to put your plan into action, at one location. Topics range from long term water and food storage to personal safety…..before, during, and after any survival situation.

On April 30th, 2016, we will bring the community together for Southern Maryland PrepCon. The event will be in St. Leonard, Maryand at Crossroad Christian Church, located at 150 Ball Road. It will be an informative and educational seminar to discuss the potential hazards that are unique to our area. We want to bridge the gap between the community, faith based organizations, and government agencies, understanding that each have individual and very specific roles and responsibilities “when” events such as natural disasters, regional emergencies, etc. occur.

This conference will bring awareness to Local and State Government, Private Industry, Religious Organizations, and Individual roles and responsibilities are, or can be, in the event of a natural or man made disaster. Each entity can only stretch their resources so far. We want to  promote understanding that we can, and should, work together for the sake of the community.

Full details of the event can be found at www.smdprepcon.com

We look forward to seeing you there…………..

Last year’s show was a huge success.
It’s not a question of IF….it’s a question of WHEN!
Emergencies will happen. Nobody can predict when or where these emergencies may occur. Natural disasters, accidents, disease, and civil unrest all contribute to the probability of experiencing a survival situation…..and these threats increase every year. The only way to maximize the chance of survival in these situations is to be prepared. Preparation is the key to overcoming fear.

The Idea of prepping is simple. What you want to prep for can make if complicated. How well you can prep depends on your financial situation. We prep for what I strongly believe will be an economic collapse of this country. No person, family, city, county, state, or country can operate outside of a budget forever. Sooner or later the bill comes due. When it does it will most likely make our U.S. currency worthless. Then the question will be how will you live or how well will you live. We prep because we want to maintain as close to a normal life as we now have accepting some changes we will have to make just due to the situation at hand, but it doesn’t matter how well you prep. In the end it will come down to how well you can defend it. Because their will be more unprepared people than prepared ones. When people start going hungry they will do things otherwise they wouldn’t do when instinct to survive kicks in. No matter if you go to the mountains or where ever, somebody sooner or later will stumble across you by accident or hunt you out deliberately. The real challenge will be can you protect the ones you love and can you protect the preparations you have made to insure you and yours survival. The greater the number in a committed family the better the chances of surviving are.
We have been prepping for almost 8 years now. Only 4 of us have mainly built to what a few have called a small piece of heaven. I don’t quite see it that way…LOL Its been a LOT of hard work, and a LOT of money to get as far as we have and I still see a ways to go before I will feel I’ve done my best to provide for my love ones and have provided all the means necessary to protect it. We are looking for LIKE MINDED PREPPERS who are looking for the same as we are. Prepping takes commitment. For family’s to join together it takes honesty, trust, and most of all respect. Communication is the key to all that and more. So to answer your question. What are you looking for?
We are a family of 4. we have been hard core prepping for 7 going on almost 8 years now. We have two acres along the Alabama Florida line. We are looking for like minded families who are already peppers or is severely interested in prepping. We are looking for families or individual(s) to join us. We are not looking to form a group but more of an extended family. One’s who would possibly move/live on site to share the work with us. Or help out on weekends who feel they may need a bug out location. We have added additions on to our house. We have turned a 3 bedroom 2 bath house into a 7 bed room 3 bath house. We are looking to do one more addition. We also have a mobile home which is almost completely remolded to house a family also. We want to place one more on the property also to house others. We have a extended stock of food. We also have over 100 chickens, 40 turkeys, They are housed in a 24 X 100 foot long pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s with tin roof covering the entire thing.14 hogs housed in a 36 x 36 tin roof covered pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s. With water ran to all animal pen’s. We have a 8 x 16 shed that houses 4 incubators and a bitty bruter for hatching chickens and turkeys. We have 50, 55 gallon food grade drums of grain corn for human and animal consumption. We have 50, 55 gallon drums of animal feed for our animals. We have a solar powered well free from the grid for water. We also have a complete solar system to power our entire house free from the grid. We have built a EMP proof room to protect the solar power components. We have a 25,000 gallon above ground pool that serves not only as entertainment but as a reserve water supply also. It has a screened in deck with a flat screen TV and DVD player for entertainment and relaxation, including a 12 person pick nick table. We have a 125 gallon solid fuel hot water heater. We have a 12 x 24 glass green house a garden area with a above ground sprinkler system. We have converted from electric to gas cooking with enough fuel to cook for at least 2 years. I have a shop area with tools, welder, cutting torch to build and fabricate what ever we may need. We are currently putting in a out door kitchen. We are installing a 6 foot fence around the property. We do have much much more. We have implemented back up systems for almost every thing We work hard! We are very neat and organized. We are looking for others to join us for I know a single family cannot stand alone. We will not accept any FREELOADERS. We do not ask for any financial help. Only that you provide what personal stuff you may need for yourselves. If you feel you can and want to contribute financially that’s fine. If you don’t mind working hard caring for animals and getting your hands dirty a little we just might be the ones for you. We are looking for like minded individuals that know what is coming in this country and don’t mind WORKING HARD TO SURVIVE IT OR DEFEND IT. We are dug in deep no plan for bugging out!
WE ARE LOOKING FOR LIKE MINDED PREPPERS.PLEASE HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THIS MEANS. I want to address some issues I have ran into. We are just down home good old southern folks. We believe in God, the Bible, Country, and the Constitution but were not going to beat you over the head with a bible. Yes occasionally I like to drink a beer but I’m no drunk. No we don’t want illegal drugs brought here or grown here. No I cant just up and come and get you if you don’t have transportation. Then blame me for your problems because you was not truthful about yourself or all YOUR PROBLEMS. NO were not providing some kind of retirement community. We all work here! We have had several visitors come here spend any where from a weekend to a week. All who have visited have wanted to join or come back. If we do not feel you are right for us its nothing personal. I had a vicious slandering attack against me by one simply because we choose not to let one come back. This people called them self “a prepper” I know this site was set up to help LIKE MINDED PREPPERS, get in touch communicate, and form groups. Sadly I have noticed its being used for much more than that. If you feel you are a LIKED MINDED PREPPER then email me at Knightmagic101 @ aol {dot} com. I will return your email with a cell number so we can talk and see where it can go from there. I can provide a couple of numbers so you can talk with one or two others that all ready live here or one who is planning on coming back to join. Any ways happy prepping and maybe I’ll hear from you…Thanks Rick. Knightmagic101 @aol{dot}com I have had a lot of people contact me I have enjoyed the conversations with all. I have noticed all most all have done little prepping or lack the resources or financial means to do any prepping. We do not hold that against any one wanting to join us. Here’s the key issue. Pets,… mainly Dogs. I’m sorry we cannot take in any one with dogs. Especially keeping them inside the house. We just cannot have people living in and around the house and others in other dwelling and all with several dogs. There’s to many problems associated with this. Sanitary is the prime reason. I could list many others. So no matter how well you say your dog is house trained or gentle it is. The answer is NO. NO DOGS or Cats. Besides who’s going to feed them in a SHTF situation. We can not take our feed for our live stock to feed dogs. IF You have a solution that you think will work run it past me. I’m not heartless to the love of animals. But for the safety and well being of all you have to draw a line somewhere. If you think you have a good idea run it past me Maybe it might work…as long as its OUTSIDE THE HOUSE NOT INSIDE…

I am looking to start and or join a group of preppers-patriots-survivalist in the Baltimore County area. No political affiliation required or desired. Just a belief in Constitutional rights, a desire to survive and thrive no matter the situation and a decent moral compass. No race or religion requirement. No racists or religious extremists allowed. No age or gender requirement, other than being 18 or older. Preppers and Patriots from all walks of life have different things to offer. Would like to build a communication network, information and skill exchange, support network and barter network. Would like to eventually form a tight group of families and or individuals who will aid, support and defend each other not only in a SHTF scenario, but in every day life. If you are interested please reply to this post. All initial first meetings would be held in a very public place for the safety of all interested. All initial communication will be through this site or email.

The U.S. dollar has been the world’s reserve currency for 94 years, but after losing 98% of its buying power and the world realizing it’s fiat status, it has peaked and its days are now numbered. Once again we’re facing the threat of hitting another debt ceiling. Only this time, China has been dumping US dollar denominated assets at historic levels while Chinese companies have begun reducing the amount of dollars they borrow for international transactions. Steps being taken in preparation for China to become a world reserve currency. If you know your history, wars have always been created when world economies begin to fail.

When the politicians, the talking head “experts” and the MSM tell you to not panic, it’s time to wake the hell up … and probably time to panic. So, is it any wonder that the summer of 2015, yet again, set another record for the sale of firearms in the united States? But what good are weapons when we continue to stay divided by the machinations of the incompetents, which have usurped and altered our form of government? Have we become so ignorant and complacent by our pride, we no longer recognize the threats presented from porous borders? The miscreants that control us are well protected by our children we loan to them through military service, under the guise of patriotism, only to be returned to us either broken or dead. Then they are further persecuted or neglected because they hold the title of Veteran. What type of madness does a person suffer from that pays, in so many ways, for their own demise and that of their children? Is it really anti-government, to be anti-evil and have a distaste for secrecy which breeds corruption? The Scriptures tell us, ” Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.”  But even doves, sensing a source of impending danger, sacrifice their safety to protect their mate and nest… It’s not advocating violence, to put on His armor and stand in defense of His children and creation. When you are not violent by nature, yet, you are labeled a terrorist because of your faith, belief in the Constitution and desire for freedom. A label courtesy of the Demopublican cartel.

Where does your faith really lay when you acquiesce to evil supplanting their traits upon yourselves? Making your trust of one another far below their levels of trust. So far, in fact, we can’t even pull our families, friends or neighbors together to prepare for what’s coming. We have to create posts like this in an attempt to find strangers we can trust. And, that’s no easy task, either.

​Unless you have been living in the trees for the past four decades, you would have seen the mile markers on the way to Fascism/Communism/Marxism (whatever ism you choose). Revealing to you a world bound in secrecy, surveillance, corruption, and lies, culminating into a complete world of civil, moral and economic bankruptcy. If you know what the worlds economy is really built upon, then you know what it will take to survive what is coming and needed to rebuild it after the chaos… So what, you say, I’m ready for it. I’ve got my gold, silver, food, water, tools, weapons and ammo. Bring it on! Yep, you’re ready alright, except for the one thing that will prove to be more precious than any amount of gold you could ever hope to hold. More life saving than all the food storage and medicines you could possibly gather and more valuable than anything you could barter with. Because without it, you’re just another sheep huddled within a stockyard waiting to be singled out and taken to slaughter. Oh yes, listen to the experts, they’ll tell you your survival doesn’t depend on it being there, after all, man has lived without it for thousands of years. But did they? You can have the knowledge of preparing to survive, but having the knowledge does not mean you have the understanding of what will be needed to survive.

There is more and more indisputable evidence coming into focus that is contrary to what you’ve been taught in government controlled schools, which have perpetrated so many lies and illusions. It was once said, ” It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” If you still believe that slaves with ropes and wooden skids built the pyramids, a feat that cannot be duplicated even today, then you need to continue on with your own style of preparing. If you don’t swallow that Bovine Excrement, it shows that you possibly may be a thinker and you need to be aligned with other thinkers.

Two things we are finding many are lacking in their attempt to prepare for a multi-event scenario is lack of security and privacy… In a society without total surveillance amid the perceived threats by those in power, it would be a non-issue. But in today’s world it is very much a concern, and we need to become more prudent about what we put online. Face it, we have become 1984 in 2015 and have to come to terms with how we need to proceed in creating safety in numbers. Placing phone numbers, email addresses, locations and a list of your supplies, especially armaments, is considered, in not just my opinion, very poor judgement. These are things that need to be discussed as private as possible, preferably face to face. I’ve read numerous warnings from the admin of this site, stressing concern over two instances I have listed. If anyone should be listened to, it’s those that created this site.

Ever since the internet was released to the world, most people thought nothing  about revealing every detail about their person. They used their full name for their free email, created profiles to accompany them, joined social networks, posted photos of themselves, family, friends, acquaintances, even their locations and where they traveled to. Never once taking into consideration it could be used against them in later days, in order to track them and exploit every aspect of their existence. Only recently, people are beginning to learn they’ve become their own worst enemy, by falling into this now obvious snare of disclosure and apathy. If they would have only taken the time to research and learn where the internet came from, they may have been a little more discreet and less foolish. Which brings me to one of my favorite verses in the Scriptures. Repeated twice, word for word, in the same book, Proverbs. What are the odds? It goes like this, ” A prudent man foreseeth evil and hides himself, the foolish pass on and are destroyed.”  Did I also mention, they are the only places in all of the Scriptures, where the word “foreseeth” appears? If you were to recognize just the wisdom alone contained within those verses and they were written for these uncertain times, then it should be a no-brainier’s thought process to adhere to it.

Paranoia, is when there are no factual bases for fear, Common Sense, obviously, dictates the existence of those facts.
Please keep in mind, we are all about security and privacy. We will not divulge anything more than what our plans are, until we are sure about you and.you are convinced we are on to something… Something most of the so-called experts conveniently left out or minimized the importance of. Send us a private message with any thoughts & contact info and we’ll be willing to discuss more with you.

Tired of trying to do it all on your own.  you may be a good fit for our group .We are a nationwide prepping group made up of good people who care about each other, who take care of each other, and who prepare together. Why? Because we live in very uncertain times and it is the smart thing to do. At this time , we are 452 members strong in 43 States. If we continue to grow at this rate, we will be in all 50 States by December 2015 with more than 1,000 members. We are inviting you to join our family of preppers. We are an amazing group, you will make us better!

Our mission is to create an independent system, free of external support which would promote interdependence. In an uncertain world filled with natural disasters and worldwide terrorism, it is only reasonable for a person to seek security in the strength of a group. This system will ensure the safety and security of its members regardless of the scope, duration, or intensity of any emergency. Our mission is to develop a nationwide network of well organized, well prepared, well meaning, likeminded individuals who know, trust and care about each other. The goal of our group will be to leverage the collective skills and resources of its Members so that when the storm arrives, the weak will be safe, the hungry will be fed, and the sick will be healed. Please check out our Plan B .  If you are interested in more information please email me back and I will answer any questions you may have.  bredon1384 [at] gmail [dot] com

Hello all,

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.

– JP

I’m building a full Prepper community, I have land in the Hanover county area of New Hampshire about 25-30 acres with a well, as well as several dead drop locations on the eastern coast of the US available goal is to make room for between 75-100 people a group that will not only survive but thrive. project will take a few years and stages including group training. this is an invitation extended towards existing prepper groups and individuals alike. About me I am young just 23 my wife 19 and we have 2 kids. I can cook as a trade I am also no stranger to combat and I can use a firearm at an intermediate level and a blade at an expert level. Though with some exception I’m self trained in Firearms, Hunting, Explosives, Trapping,and Smelting. Weapon knowledge includes most strike fire pistols and rifles including automatics, pump and break action shotguns, katana, cutlass, bastard sword, hand and half swords, kopis, gladius, kukri, machetes, most knives, short staff, BO staff, spear, knuckles, and tomahawk and am still learning more weapons and skills.

One thing I’ve learned is numbers are essential so I’m trying to do what i can to pull resources and like minded preppers to aid each other in prepping a safely secured self sufficient community.

What I’m looking for.

  • Friendly and trustworthy, individuals that understand working together equally is important free code no kings no servants
  • Variant degree of skill, if you know nothing the show willingness to learn if you know something be ready to teach
  • Strong and capable, be strong of mind or body or both
  • Financial support, I am poor but i have land to build and train on the more we can build there the more we can do
  • Seriousness, I look at this as a future possibility it could mean survival for my family or more than just them I DON’T think of this as a game or something to do in spare time.

Imagination, prepping for the end brings about what communities will arise at the end new traditions and rituals made old ones lost imagination could be a formidable weapon or a moral raiser be open to new ideas.

Hello everyone,

I am a U.S. Army Vet. Have done two tours in Iraq and two tours in Afghanistan. My family and I have been prepping for five years now but are currently looking for a bug out location since we all still have mortgages. None of our homes are secure enough so we thought to look for like minded folks around the area. We have three families in our group and have a diverse set of skills to help any community that is looking for more people. Our skill set includes: EMT, Construction, Communications, Farmer, Handymen, Firefighters, Ex-military, Hunters, Fishermen, Nurse and Surgical Tech.

please let me know if our group could be accommodated. We all have 6-12 months of food and water and firearms.
