What my plan is, is to network with key individuals. Get to know each other and build a rapport and friendship.  Start conducting some training classes etc.  As of right now I plan on bugging in.  But that could change depending on other group members’ locations.  Meaning, if other group members have a better location to bug out to and are willing to allow their location to be the designated BOL area.

I’m 45, married with 3 children. We are Christian.  I spent 16 years in the Army and Michigan Army National Guard.  I worked 4 years as a correction officer and emergency response team member at a prison. Besides tactics, I worked as a Medical Specialist (medic).   We live in a rural area south of Cadillac.  We are raising chickens.

We only live on two acres but my back up location is at my in laws property which is 120 acres near Tustin. They have a cabin (wood heat) on the back side of the property which is concealed by trees.  There is a lot of land that can be used as a garden and for hunting.

I figure that the group members could pool their assets to make a retreat a better location. (Some items may be prepositioned.)  What belongs to you, belongs to you.  What is mine, stays mine.  Granted there is going to be some items that are pooled from all members like the group first aid kit or items used for training.  That way if a member quits or is dismissed, there is no arguing about what belongs to you.  I think that written agreements should be implemented so there is no confusion later.

I think that one of the main priorities should be a year +/- worth of food for each member. All of this will take some time, some longer than others.  Since this is new, everything is subject to change.

I am looking for a doctor, physician assistant, registered nurse,  Military and law enforcement to form a mutual assistance group for an emergency situation.  If you are proficient at gardening, canning meat and produce you will be an asset.  If you do not necessarily have any skills but have money for supplies you will be an asset.  There is safety in numbers.  So how about you, what is your background?

Everyone must work towards the goal of one year of food in storage. Group members must chip in to purchase supplies that will be used by the group.  Group members must be willing to attend training such as firearms marksmanship, first aid, survival skills etc.  Everyone coming on board must be very dedicated, focused, self driven, be able to give their word and keep their word. Communication Security (COMSEC) is a must.  Everyone’s identity and personal information will be kept confidential.

I believe the group should make decisions together (committee). No dictatorship.  I think there should be a figurehead for daily operation decision making but answer to the group committee.

If this interests you then send an email to materielgeneral [at] yahoo [dot] com and tell me a little about yourself and what you can contribute to the group.

Thank You,

Hi there,

My name is Terry, I have been trying to find a place were I fit in with my kids, because of the whole prepping thing. I have many skills that can be of good use. I use to teach Martial Arts, and remodel and build houses. I am a great cook, and a great builder lol. It’s kinda hard trying to find a good place or group being a single father, soI figured why not join a Preppers online community. Thank you, hope to hear from you guys and gals.

We are a well-established group of normal families with a great retreat site and excellent location. We are prepped up and take continuing training and education seriously. We currently have a diverse spread of skill sets but lack someone to head up medical. We’re located in a sparsely populated area of Northern Michigan (Lower Peninsula) which enjoys unlimited ground water, excellent hunting, trapping and fishing plus all that a well-developed retreat site would include. We take defense seriously but are not a bunch of Rambos. We’re Christians but won’t beat anyone over the head with a Bible. There are minimum requirements for membership and a background check will be conducted. If you have any interest contact me at …

So many good groups out there but many are in places I would not like to live, either because of the politics, or present laws, or just the area in general. For three years now we have sort of been living in survival like mode, in our small travel trailer.

Due to lack of a truck, we must sell, but we see this as God’s way of moving us into something better. Right now as I sit here, my last few days in my own “home” I am feeling pulled in to many directions.

I love Montana and the laws here are good for us, ( I am a single mom and I home school). California has the potential of massive destruction due to earthquakes, and the south well mostly I can’t breath through the heat and the mugginess.

I am originally from Michigan and still have tons of family there, but between the recent removal of animals on small farms, Dearborn allowing Sharia Law and the fact that there is not a shred of the farm left, I have no desire to return.  So where do we belong?

I have done so much in my life but I have also died.  That singular event has made it very difficult for me to reintegrate with humanity. I have tried, but I feel out of sync and solitary.

But I still have one at home and my job is not complete until she has flown the coop. I know what I want, a home of our own and property. But this is a foolish dream and one that must go.

So I know I would like to be among like minded people, but sadly I can not find them.

If you did not have an alternative heat source during the freezing temps last week and the power went out, that would be a serious mistake. Come to the Great Lakes Emergency Preparedness Expo in Birch Run or if you do have answers let the masses know! www.greatlakespreppers.com

Hi there,

 

Looking to network, partner, prep, socialize with other preppers in the Greater Chicagoland area (up to five hour drive from Chicago Loop). Have some land and currently in the planning and designing stage of a large 130’x 30-50′ organic garden in the west suburbs. Have access to highest level of combat, anti-personnel, survival, defense, offense tactical training available through contacts in MARSOC. Just received my FIOD and will start training soon.

 

About Me:
Originally from Wheaton, currently living on Chicago’s NW side near Diversey exit. Christian, straight, married 36 y.o. male with 1.5 y.o. daughter. Just getting started with this whole concept and starting from scratch.

 

Why I Am Prepping:
This country is getting more and more screwed up. FDA approved poisoning of food by Monsanto, Obama grabbing guns and instituting Islam into our country and removing Christianity from schools and society, FEMA and DHS stealing our liberties one by one – this is all nuts. I’m a normal guy and don’t think the world will end at midnight but I do believe that there are “too many something’s wrong” going on not to at least make some sensible preparations just incase SHTF and the world becomes FUBAR overnight or over time. I am NOT anti-government. I am looking to meet balanced, practical people who are serious about making a long term commitment to this. Racist, radical, lazy, anti-religious, all talk individuals are not welcome to contact me. Old or young educated or not, rich or poor, black or white, I don’t care. Must be of high moral character and have no criminal background. Don’t have to be perfect but people of questionable integrity will not be welcome.

Hey guys. Recently, a new idea has come into my mind. Rather than having a small group of people with similar goals, what about a network of preppers all throughout Michigan? We could get our own land and divide it between the group members and meet there when the SHTF. It would be a serf-suffiecent community, able to provide and fend for itself in times of crisis. It would also be able to communicate with the outside world. Comment if you’re intrested in joining. You can also email me, with a better chance of a quick response. RJ_911311 [at] yahoo [dot] com
Can’t wait to hear from you, RJ.
