Hello,

We are a family of five looking to join a survival group in Minnesota. We live in south Minneapolis and  realize that it’s not a good place to be if things go south! We are very well-stocked with food and supplies so I last piece to our survival puzzle is finding a great group of people to  survive and thrive with if need be.

My husband is an Eagle Scout, avid fisherman  and Hunter, cold-weather camping instructor, woodworker,and  can build anything. I practiced Chinese medicine and acupuncture which I feel will be a valuable skill set to have  in regards to keeping a survival group healthy. I have a large amount of supplies  to do so. I also am an experienced gardener and love to cook.

In a nutshell, I think that belonging to a healthy and positive survival group is the  most important aspect of surviving when the SHTF. Please contact me if you would like to chat further about any opportunities or ideas.

Thank you,

Hello. Still looking for like minded people to get together with in my area of central mn around st cloud. I have a house on 5 acres and a lot of storage space, if anyone in the Twin Cities or surrounding areas are looking for a bug out spot we should talk i check this site weekly or u can email me at ponch26 [at] gmail [dot] com. looking forward to hearing from you.

Hello.  Hope this doesn’t get me tagged under the extreme caution… I’m only mass posting this on most of the options because I haven’t had a whole lot of activity.  I’m sure that there are plenty of people out there that would fit well with us so here goes—

We (family of 4 myself36/wife35/son13/son6) are located in Maine.  We live on private 30 acres on a long dead end dirt road.  I believe that my property would be very defensible in SHTF with the right people.  We are currently doing many advanced preps that i will not go into.  We have a field started for garden/pasture approx 4 acres.  We have a large barn.  Starting to raise meat rabbits and chickens and will get goats in the spring.    We are also doing other medium scale things to our property to help with agricultural production and self sufficiency.    I think that it is important to be well rounded in my preps by having quality tactical gear, arms, ammo, ect. and important items to be able to charge batteries and other misc things like doing laundry, along with stocking up on other important items like food, canning supplies, tools for cutting fire wood ect.  But all in all none of it will amount to anything if I do not have two things in place… one being our ability to grow, raise, and preserve our own food and the other defending what we have at SHTF.

Currently we plan to have one other family join us when everything falls apart.  We are in need of someone with real tactical combat experience.  (ie real Military experience) I’m not talking about someone who has been through boot camp and never deployed.  I am hoping to find an experienced military man (with family?)  that can train with us regularly before shtf and also help plan for strategic defenses of the property.  (this could be things like preps to purchase like 4 pallets of razor wire if you get my drift.)   Also a medic would always be needed.  Aside from that I honestly think that some other local friends that i know that are prepping would be just fine if we needed more bodies.  All in all we are very well rounded. We make our own soap. Can fix vehicles, tinker, do carpentry, farm, ect.  I plan to have 4+/- families at our retreat after shtf.

Some basic requirements I would have would be regular biweekly/monthly training meetings, maintaining a years+ supply of food, byo AR-15 with ammo.  Always would welcome help ‘on the farm’ if you can make the time.  Heck i have 4 acres to plant so you could help and harvest and EAT  too.  I am not doing this to make a living, just want to learn to walk the walk the hard way before it is a necessity.  If qualified and relocating i would be willing to rent our other house out to you.  We are not looking for any free loaders before or after shtf.  Everyone must carry there own weight after shtf and before… well if we don’t work we don’t eat.  I would assume you would have or find a normal job to support yourself unless you have a pension or want to try to make a living farming here.

Both families are genuine bible believing born again christians.  Although i myself am very much against the tide of modern day christianity and have only recently tried to start to go to church.  I have been a believer for 17 years and have a strong faith in Jesus and a very fluent bible knowledge.  I do not state that to segregate.   Well, I’ve probably said too much about my plans, but i am hopeful that it will help bring forth some people who have some serious skill to join us.

Oh, if you already live in Maine and want to plan to bug out with us (instead of move close by)  that could work too as long as you still would hold regular meeting/training schedule.  Hopefully if nothing else this leads to a life long friendship.

A few friends and I have started looking for a change, mainly because we have gotten older and we don’t want to be a bunch of old fart preppers.
My other half and I have been looking for aplace that is adding people (couples) in and we wanted to stay in Minnesota but things have gotten to exspensive for us here to buy and with being divorced I can’t get any credit mostly because I always paid cash.
We have found wooded land in eastern Minnesota and I’m looking for another couple or two to split with payments and setup their own off-grid small house and a few animals like goats and chickens, a small garden and maybe a commun kitchen.
This my thoughts I am hoping to work with true to their own life people on this.

im looking for like minded people in the Detroit Lakes or Becker county area, or surrounding areas.

I have medical knowledge and have been prepping for many years. I have a lot to offer a group. I’m looking at starting a group, I want to do regular meetings, let our families get to know each other, do training in various areas. I have always prepped alone, but I am worried about what’s coming and want to have a group, safety in numbers.

Please email me with questions at preppedmama16 [at] gmail [dot] com

Hello from up north, me and my family have started prepping and planning our Prepping. It was since Russia, China and North Korea. Even if a war or EMP doesn’t happen, I think there will be a food shortage.

I found this site and thought I can learn a few more things about Prepping and survival. I hope to learn something useful.

Nov 092016
 

I am, for the 1st time in my life, genuinely concerned that there will be upheaval after this election and would like to get with other like minded folks to prepare for the inevitable.  I am located in South Central MN and would like to make contact with the right people to start prepping groups around here. I’m a combat vet, 7 tours between Iraq, Kuwait and Afghanistan, who is law abiding but knows in every fiber of my being that we must prepare for the worst. I have talked with family members who were ultimately against “prepping” but now I have about 50% of those I talked to on board. Now I Just need to get all who want to be involved trained to standard. Anyone out there agree with me? If so get in touch with me.

Hello Ladies and Gents

I would like to thank so many people from this site for all the contacts and conversations we ,My son and I received we have been offline and off grid for a while. With time and a little patience this site has gained us a friend who we teamed up with and a group that we three are now members of and we all live together in our own places. We my son and I have been in groups for long term stays as we have said before in our other post [ Get us if you can ]… We do not know what happened but we were not able to get into our post or back on the site with our old profile. But we are back and we ask each of our friends who have contacted us to get back in touch you know who you are lol…As I was saying it is hard to wade through so many people and groups and find the real deals as most of us very well know, however after many months of looking for the right people and so many contacts even friends,, we made a choice and we could not be more happy with the real and down to earth people we have found.. For op sec reasons I will not be giving a list of we got this and we got that …

Now if you are looking for a group to bond with to become friends and maybe extended family we may be what you are looking for .. If you are real, , honest,,  true to yourself and others you may fit..  we are not a religious group we have many people with many different points of view and we respect each other and each others points of view…  We are open to all good people contact us by e mail if we like what we see and hear we will move to phone person to person talks and get to know each other.. we love ex mil alpha dogs and those who have a prepping and security mindset..  If you have skillsets you bring to the table and you wish for safety in likeminded numbers we may be your kind of crazy lol

I’m interested in like minded folks that are near by. To help make a better peppers out of us. I have been doing it awhile and always trying to learn and gather more. I have seen a few posts of folks in my area of southern Anoka county. My email is mn_stets08 at yahoo. Com

hi-

I’m looking to either start an urban preparedness group, or join up with one that already exists, for the purposes of learning and training together, developing plans, sharing information, and finding useful people.

 

I I have some basic skills but I have not been preparing long, but I’m looking to learn as much as I can and help others learn too. I’m resourceful and can fix anything, have some building skills, firearms, minor medical knowledge, in decent shape. Most importantly I come with a strong will to survive and a positive attitude that we can make it through anything if we stay strong and willing.

 

Im not all that fervently religious (though I’m not against religion in any way) and I’m definitely not interested in getting into a fight with the feds–so if those are your main angles, more power to ya but I’m not interested.

 

This is is kind of a shot in the dark. I’m really not expecting there to be any people inside the city of Minneapolis with a preparedness mindset. But you never know.

 

Reply lay on here and we will go from there. Thank you!

Hello everyone I’m not going to lie I have only recently started to prep although I have always had the mindset. I have my food, gear, and weapons already. I suppose I’m listing this because I would love to meet people near me who may help with my preps and maybe some training. I have all of the medical training as far as EMR,EMT, Firstaid, and CPR covered. My downfall in my training is that it all has involved the proper gear at my disposal. I’m hoping to hear about some nifty tricks as well as survival techniques. Please email me with ideas and help at eanjurgens(at) gmail (dot)com. I appreciate the help and wish you all the best of luck with whatever the future holds.

Our family (of 4 possibly 5) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with.  We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring.  We wish to relocate to Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, N. Nebraska, but preferably somewhere out West since it is less populated (Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, North or South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah). We are choosing not to remain in Tennessee. We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.

Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live  in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.

In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me. We currently live just outside of Chattanooga, but it is just over the mountain in our backyard, and those folks are going to be heading somewhere to try to survive….

We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. We have no roots here, and have been looking to leave for a while, but have stayed just because it’s where my kids have always gone to school. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.

I am looking to join an individual or group who is in need of some assistance in maintaining and thriving in a retreat situation.  Ideally, a realistic friend and myself including our spouses are looking for a group or individual in a rural setting away from the cities. We come with foodstuffs, prep equipment and the will to defend our loved ones from the bad times around the corner.  We both bring a unique skill set and hard work ethic, which will be a definite plus for an individual or group looking to round out their preparation for ugly times.  Reply to SNRP [at] comcast [dot] net

I am former military, wife is an Rn looking for groups or individuals to coordinate with for preparedness for what this society is about to experience whether it be financial,global,marshal law or EMP or similar disasters. I myself have many skills and have been prepping for about 8 years but been more active about it last 2 years. I have even started to manufacture tiny homes on wheels. I have land north of cities which has 3 natural springs located on it but with job,time and raising kids have not had much time to work it. Am not looking for military driven ideas or actions but will defend life liberty and freedom. Would like to possibly establish some meets maybe once a month to share ideas and concerns and work with others so we may prosper in surviving and stay ahead of what may be this worlds downfall. I can be reached at bko [three111three26] @comcast.net.  [ 3111326 ]

As people preparing for the future, and members of this forum, we all understand that one of the keys to survival is a community. Someone we can rely on and trust, share information with and to ultimately ensure the future of ourselves and our families. My brother and I have come to realize this and are looking to build onto the small community we have already started. We have about 20 or so people with family members. Each of us bringing different skills to the table in a collective we hope will carry us through anything that would happen. The location we have is in Northern Wisconsin with an abundance of natural resources and plans to install items to help with sustainability. We meet up three or four times a year to assist and train ourselves in the case of a situation. Our training includes, firearms, basic survival, team movements, reaction drills, general gear inspection and making plans for the next time. We are not militant types, anti-government or anything along those lines. We are moral, American value driven community of men and women looking to ensure the safety and the security of our families future. I wouldn’t say this a recruitment post, but more of a general call for fellowship and the open flow of communication. If anyone is interested feel free to respond or private message me. I’d be happy to answer any questions. Look forward to hearing from you.

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…

Looking for people with like minds to prep with. It’s hard to do it all by yourself! We have a lot to offer (medical skills, military training, food storage, etc). Wanting to meet people who have skills to offer as well.

Attention Fort Campbell Area.
I hope I never have to put this plan into effect, but I’m looking for volunteers.

As you may have noticed, what’s going on in this country and around the world, is our government seems to be failing us. I am looking for trustworthy reliable people that are willing to do anything to protect their family. If there is a complete collapse in government or Marshall Law is declared I want to get a small group of likeminded people together to help protect our own. I’m not advocating violence. I’m not a violent person at all, in fact I’m an advocator of peace, and an ordained minister, but if the SHTF, my family will be my top priority. I have 19 years of military service (still currently serving) and I’m a combat veteran with training with various weapons and tactics I’m a very good shooter, and have my own weapons. My family is everything to me, but there is safety in numbers, and sometimes the family needs to grow. (I hope I would never have to take a human life, but there are shady people out there are willing to do harm to you and yours just because they can.) I’m not talking about overthrowing the government or any crap like that, but by this point there won’t really be a government to worry about. This isn’t about race, (we’re all part of the human race) religion, (You should be able to believe or worship whatever or whoever you choose) sexual orientation, (Who you love is your business) or any crap like that. It’s ignorance and prejudices like those that are part of the reason we’re in this mess to begin with. This is about survival and protecting our families. I’m talking about the inevitable demise of our civilization, and I’m sure you’ve noticed it’s already starting to collapse. If you already have a group, or are a small family with these same types of thoughts please let me know, and we’ll see where to go from there. Thank you and God Bless.

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.

I am a single mature Christian man currently living in south Minneapolis. I have acquired some property outside of Elk River and am moving toward a more self-sufficient/prepper lifestyle. Seeking to connect with like minded people to build relationships and networking. The property is undeveloped but fertile with an abundant source of water and game, as well as a nearby lake.. Much works lies ahead before relocating there, however long term camping is and option that can  discussed. Please respond with  contact information; I would caution everyone to use prudence when sharing or asking for TMI in any public forum.

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!

Hello everyone! I currently live in N. Central Minnesota and would like to move west. My job allows me to move litterly anywhere so I’m really not set in stone as to where I go. I’m looking for a community or group of like minded individuals who have started or who are starting a close knit group of decent people.

I am more than willing to discuss any and all of my bio, skills, financial, preps etc. With anyone I feel might be a good fit for me .

I prefer to discuss said personal info after initial contact. Then, after you review my information and after both parties agree, I would like to meet.

I’m just throwing this out there and I am kind of curious to see if anything ” sticks”.

I really enjoy this site and am very pleasantly surprised at the number of people that seem to think along the same lines as I do.

Life changing opportunity!
Are you ready to try something new and different?

We are building a team of unconventional, forward-thinking individuals to staff a unique facility in Crosby, MN.

Our night-stay Interactive theater is evolving, creating new possibilities, including, but not limited to: Theater, Hospitality, Product Development and Manufacturing, Gardening with Aquaponics and Hydroponics, Prepping/Self-sustainability, and the ability to look at new ways of approaching each challenge.

We are trend setters, not trend followers. Creative energy a plus, communication a MUST. The ability to do improv comedy is a plus, but not required if you have a desire to learn.

You must be able to lift 50-70 lbs on a regular basis, and you must be willing to take direction from others. You must be willing to do whatever duties need to be done to keep our business running and you must do it with a smile. Excellent customer service skills are also required, as our business greatly depends on it.

This is a LIVE-IN position with upward mobility opportunities and profit sharing. The possibility of a reality show exists. Our goal is to create a self-sufficient community that does not depend on money or the outside world at all!

If you think you have what it takes, please contact AuntieSusieSunshine [at] gmail [dot] com for an audition.

I have been prepping since before that show came out and gave us a name.  I have about half of the skills that I’d like to have, so I’m looking to expand our group and learn all that I can. I’m not a paranoid nut-job and keep a low profile. In my early 30s, have a wife and a young ‘un to keep safe. I see a lot of people further north of me but I’d like to make some new prepper friends closer to Mankato so we can get together for meetings and to train. Anybody interested in chatting?

Hi! We’re looking for a group in the South West part of Saint Paul MN. We’re into gardening, food storage and being ready to lead and help those who are less or not prepared.

Best regards,
