My wife and I have a 7 year old son and have been prepping for several years now, I have military training in combat and we are looking for a group of like minded people who believe in Christ as lord and savior. We would relocate if there was work available for us. If you are looking for a family to join your group who are not afraid to work hard and protect our group please contact me at peacemakerjake [at] yahoo [dot] com. I’m Robert but everyone calls me Jake cause of my last name Jacobson and my wife is Ginger. Thanks to all and blessings.
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

Hi to all in the group; my first post ever on a ‘prepper’ site. I’ve been preparing since 1999 (Y2K)….2012….yadyada. I’d like to connect with other like-minded preppers in the area to share ideas, scenarios, scavenging and evasion techniques. A plan for (almost) any contingency – ” If you don’t have a plan, you are planning to fail”. Strategy and strength in numbers will be a absolute must in the aftermath of TSHTF.
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:
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 there any groups in MI that are starting up or are looking for dedicated members? My wife and I have been preparing ourselves for a few years now, and I really would like to meet some others as there is strength in numbers
Hello Im looking for like minded people around Niagara, wi. or Iron Mountain, mi. area. to get together and share ideas.
Looking for like minded conservatives to join forces with because there is always safety in numbers.
Thanks in advance – I look forward to your response.
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!
Rebecca (BTW… Did I mention “Paradise”?? )

I also taught myself how too reload ammo the same way.and when I do things it is at 110%
I am looking too purchase some land here in Michigan for purposes of having a place too retreat to if the matter comes at some point in my life and I am looking too have other like minded people who will do the same as part of a group or unit too make things work when nothing else does.
i am proficient in the following
glass blowing,smoking meat etc,fishing,hunting,fruit and vegetable gardening,minor skills in carpentry,working on cars,reloading ammo.and gasafier
I plan too learn canning and water reclamation and I’m going too do black smithing at one point.anything that will take me and mine too a point where we won’t have too rely on the outside world for everything and am looking for others that are looking for the same.
if interested in talking please email me at

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
Hello everyone! First off, thanks for such a wonderful website, you guys have so many excellent resources here, and I’ve read nothing but great things from all of your members here.
So, down to business, we are a group of families, 5 in total, that are looking for like-minded preppers in the Western Wisconsin area. Our largest city nearest us is Lacrosse, but we are not in the same county. Our ages range pretty much from late 20’s to mid 40’s and we have varied levels of prepping skills. Myself, I have been prepping for about 16 years now due to my experiences living in other countries and experiencing disasters there. Several of our families are currently serving military, with their members having multiple combat tours in Iraq and Afghanistan. We have lots of experience in security, patrolling, survival living, first aid and canning. We have multiple medium size acreage locations that we own and can switch between each if we need to. All of us also have children, all on the younger side of things, ranging from newborn to about 9 years old. We are looking for people who understand the trials, tribulations, and joys that having children entails, since they will be with us no matter what! So anyone considering this, please take this aspect into consideration as well.
So… What we are NOT looking for. ..
1) drug users, We dont “420”, and since we are mostly military, Im sure you can understand our point of view, we cant use it, and cant be around it. So as a base rule, if thats your thing, we probably wont see eye to eye.
2) criminal element or background. We understand everyone screws up in life, and must be held accountable, but if you are a child molester, pedophile, or have a violent criminal history, Im pretty sure we arent going to be compatible. Harsh? Sure, but Im talking the safety of my family here, its first and foremost my base criteria.
3) Extremist. This can range from religious, to governmental. If your friends say you have a tin-foil hat issue, or you start talking about UFO’s coming down to abduct people because “night time is the right time” we probably arent going to get along. Just being honest here.
4) Drama… save it for someone else, not our thing. Dont think I need to go into detail here.
SO… What we are looking for…..
1) people who understand what it takes to be self-sufficient and arent afraid to pitch in when it is needed to accomplish a certain goal
2) People who understand that there will be safety in numbers, but those numbers have to be able to get along, if they cant do that, it wont work
3) Folks with experience in farming, sustainable living, beekeeping, solar power, mechanical engineering, home schooling and HF communication. Im sure that sounds like a pretty extensive list, and yea, its pretty emcompassing, but its the primary areas where we are weak, so it only makes sense to add those factors into our group.
4) Families are preferred, but we are willing to accept single folks with the understanding that if the time comes that this is truly needed, we expect you to do your fair share of chores along with the rest of us. We dont care if you are male or female, as we dont see that as a hinderance or help either way, its the person and the skillset that matters to us.
5) Normal, well grounded folks, with imagination. Because if the time comes, theres a possibility we may be with out power, or running water, so folks who are able to see this for what it is, accept it, and be able to brainstorm to come up with positive solutions, well those are the people we are looking for. Folks who think outside of the box instead of inside it.
As a group, we all hunt, fish, camp and enjoy outdoors activities. So we are able to incorporate that mindset into our preps. We also are all firearms enthusiasts, and have various levels of experience with all aspects of firearms from defensive pistol, long range rifle, to state certified CCW Instructors. Obviously we are more than willing to teach each and every person everything we know, to make all of us more proficient, we only ask that you teach us everything you know so it helps us all out. We all have been prepping for various years, from 16 like myself, to 3 years with the lastest addition to our group, so while we know our little piece of the pie, we dont know it all, so thats why we want to network with others and possibly even add a few more families to our group.
A few other details about us, none of us are regular church going familys, we are all spiritual in our own ways, and have our own beliefs, we only ask that you respect that aspect of all of us, and we will respect your spiritual beliefs as well. We have law enforcement, nursing, soldiers, and outdoorsmen/women in our group, and we all get along because of a mutual respect for each others ability to bring something to the table, and each others ability to get along with others without the usual “catiness” you find with women, and “ego” you find with men. Its a unique situation because we all get along without the usual “issues” you find in some groups. Experts in one area know when to defer to experts in another, and we all set aside the egos to reach that goal. If this is something you and yours are looking for, then by all means, please contact us and lets start a dialogue with each other.
I can be reached at strmfeathr [at] yahoo [d0t] com and please, title any correspondence as “prepper family” so I know what it is regarding!
Til then, thanks for reading, and we all look forward to hearing from you folks soon!

Looking for any groups in the western upper peninsula. Would love to meet like minded preppers to build a community to be able to work together in the event of economic breakdown or other emergency situations.
I am in Southeastern Ohio and I am new on here. Looking to meet like-minded people.
Basically I have a general knowledge in a lot of survival/prepping skill sets. I also offer a good deal of knowledge on construction, farming, hunting, fishing, trapping and maintenance. I am wanting to start my own group here on Ohio.
I have been reading and researching different groups and also different survival communities.
Looking to meet new people and form new friendships. Basically looking to network with others and other groups, exchanging ideas, beliefs, knowledge and setting up a communications network. Always looking for new members. Strength is in numbers we all know that. These way its going in the world today….who knows when the SHTF is going to happen.
Contact me anytime

I am a 26 year old male currently in graduate school. I live in SE Michigan (NW of Detroit). I have most of what I need regarding gear for a bug out situation but I really don’t have many skills necessary to do much or a bug out location. I am originally from Missouri and still spend my summers and Christmas back there but for the rest of the year I am essentially on my own here in Michigan. This is my second year here and I would like to get to know some like minded people. Back in Missouri I have a couple of buddies that I am close to who are “preppers”. I am not necessarily looking to join a group nor do I want to be a burden on any one. I feel like I am where I should be right now but I also feel somewhat uncomfortable knowing all that is coming down the pike. I plan to be in Michigan for the next 3 or so years (I assume SHTF before then). I do not want to put my life on hold just because of what is happening.
What I know about prepping/bugging out I have learned on my own. I do research every day learning a little bit at a time but don’t have any land here that I can do any camping/training, etc. It would be nice to find someone nearby who has some land (not as a bug out location, but so I can practice camping/etc.)
I am a very religious person (Catholic, but I have nothing against fellow Christians of different traditions). I am in decent physical shape. I am willing to help out others in whatever way I can. I am willing to trade labor for knowledge/experience.
Christian Group considering leasing “Bug Out” sites. The property is approximately 70 miles from Chicago in Northwest Indiana which is close enough to be able to get to yet far enough to get out of the turmoil of the city. The property is an old farmstead with house, barn, water well, pond, and area for gardens & livestock.
Contact me at dck5876 [at] gmail [dot] com for more information if interested.
We are going to be moving to the White Cloud area of Michigan in less than a month. We found about all these prepper groups in Michigan and are very excited!
****If you know of any groups or individuals in/around our area, we would be so thankful to find out such information****
A little info on us. We are just a husband and wife couple who have some experience in prepping and farming, we also love hospitality and Christian gatherings. The Lord has not blessed us with children yet, but we do hope for them in His timing. We have chickens, ducks, a milk goat, a dog, and a cat. I (the husband) like to grow medicinal mushrooms and my wife loves to sew modest dresses. We both enjoy herbology and natural medicine. My wife is also studying in the field of midwifery and natural childbirth. We hope to do fostercare and IF we end up adopting through there, we are hoping to homeschool! That’s pretty much us in a nutshell!
We dont mind meeting people of all ages!
Thanks so much for your info,
We are wondering out of curiosity, where is the best place to move in the upper peninsula of Michigan? And why?
(we would prefer to be close to preppers,farmers,homeschoolers,christians,etc….)
My name is Jonathan. I have been very aware for what seems like a long while, the very real threats to our nation and to us individually. I however have spent little time gaining resources for what seems very near the crescendo of something epic. For what I lack in resources, I make up for in my ability as a quick study and man of action. I am also not without skills. I have spent most of my working life as a carpenter ( now out of work) and also an outdoorsman with minor tracking, trapping, foraging and bushcraft skills. Also am currently studying on my own accord ,wild medicinals and edibles of the region and countless other survival skills. I have also studied the application of medical treatment in war-like circumstances, I.e. sutures, clotting, infection and minor surgery with the equipment to perform. Also have studied ( and currently) Native American medicinal practice. As I said, I am a young father ( currently stay-at-home) with a 3 yr old son. My common-law wife works ( alot) to keep us societally viable while I work out skills and a survival program. I have waited this long to seek some friends in part because I am skeptical and rather a loner but also due to a feeling I may not have much to bring to the table. That has now passed as has time and events unfolding lately have fortunately or unfortunately ( yet to be decided) have made it impossible to not feel vulnerable and I believe from my research life is going to quicken its pace of change. I am a man of faith looking for like-minded friends to reach the crescendo with. God bless
Hello from West Michigan. Looking for individuals close to my area who is interested in sharing useful ideas on preparing my family when SHTF. I never thought I would have to worry about this during my time but keeping track with food shortage and the market I can see how things can change and when it change its going to change really quick. I am a single mother of two and need to get my house in order now. Any suggestions will help. Not Ready!
I have been a member in a small group and sharing skills with people even if they did not want to join our group. I am willing to trade knowledge for knowledge with no strings attached. I don’t know it all, but am willing to learn and share.
Hey all. My group is looking to recruit prospective members with valuable skills to add to our group. We drill bi-weekly in SW Michigan. If you are interested, drop me a line at s dot Allen 19th at live dot com.
Christian family, me and my wife and 2 kids would like to meet other families in or around the Walker Michigan area who are like minded. We know things are about to get really ugly and we can find security in Jesus Christ together as the Holy Spirit guides us to prep for the storm. Lets share our prepping ideas and help each other. Any age is welcome, wisdom and knowledge has no restrictions. Amen?
Looking for any preppers in Michigan’s Thumb.
I am new to all this prepping for the most part. It is something I have thought about doing for quite some time. However, not many people I know personal are like minded like me. That is when I figured I would Google like minded people. And that is how got here.
I am 37 years old, a college graduate in human services, work in the medical field having both my CENA and nursing secretary positions. In my spare time, I love gardening, making foods from scratch. And with foods, I try my best to make it all natural and nothing added unless I add it myself. I have Skype mandalynn.mitts which can be easier to get a hold of me. Weekends are also best.
I am seeking more knowledge on me thinking about going off grid. Someday I will be able to do it. But I do not want it to be when I have no choice with no actual skills. Thank you for reading my post and I look forward to hearing from you.
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.

The River Country Resilience Circle is looking for new members! We are located in St. Joseph County, Michigan and we currently meet in Centreville twice a month. Our first meeting every month is a potluck dinner & brainstorming session. Our second meeting is a presentation to teach our members something valuable. The presenters are either members or knowledgeable guests from the local community.
We are a small group (less than 10) looking to expand, we want beginners, experts and everyone in between. Our members are from various backgrounds, and we welcome anyone and everyone. We are also interested in networking with other groups.
Our focuses are Mutual Aid, Teaching & Learning, Personal Security, and Social Action.
We have held classes for basic preparedness & gardening, and we are planning to do much more.

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.
Looking to meet with preppers in the Lansing Michigan area. Looking to kinda compare notes, train together and use each others strengths to survive!
