Hello,  my husband and I live in MN and are looking to move to southern MO this year.   We are Christians looking for either a group to create or to join.  We are fairly new to prepping but have a few supplies (food, water, equipment, weapons, etc.)  We have looked around the Falcon and Mountain Grove area for acreage and live water.   My questions are:

1.  Are there any groups in that area of MO

2.  What have people done about medical insurance.  My husband has a great job with terrific benefits right now and I am self employed.  Most family and friends think we are crazy to walk away and be self- sustaining and prepared.  Our biggest concern is the medical insurance.

I appreciate any comments and look forward to learning more about the group and prepping.

Landscaping work and a place to stay at our camp for right match. We are a Christian Family looking for like minded Christian Family to help us work our land and have a sustainable farm.

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

Wanted: Up to 15 skilled members to create a pre, during, and post SHTF village on 40 seclude, off road acres.

Location: 30 miles south of Rolla, MO

Purpose: To have a safe haven in place, in the inevitable event that one will be needed. To provide the means and tools to create and finish projects which will make living a simple life enjoyable, now and after the SHTF dust settles.

Projects Include, but not limited to: An underground greenhouse which provides fish and vegetables all year, an underground ice house which will keep food at 32ºF all year, burmed chicken and rabbit housing, Rocket Mass Heaters, a smokehouse, a large solar water distiller, a large solar dehydrator, individual family unit log or uphill underground cabins, and more. Heavy equipment, tools, and some materials available now for projects.

This is not a religious or commune thing. We need a life modeled after 1800’s villages where families lived in their own seperate homes, yet used their skills to benefit the whole village, and there was a village plan for defense in times of danger.

Email me so we can get started right away!

Proverbs 22:3 – The Prudent man sees danger and makes provision.  The fool does nothing and pays the price.

The Prudent Preppers are in the process of creating a preppers paradise.  We have purchased 240 acres in Dent County complete with springs, creeks, caves, forest, ponds, and pasture. We are looking into large stores of gasoline with generators, and solar/wind for power during a SHTF event.  We have three ponds, creeks, and two wells on the property for water.  There are also lots of deer and turkey on site.  There is a log cabin on the property and we are in the process of building a 100 x 50 foot metal building complete with 4 apartments inside.  This isn’t a bug out location, we are looking for dedicated members to join now and move here this summer.  We are going to raise livestock, and create an edible landscape and forest.  We are prepping for anything and everything including the end of days, nuclear biological or chemical, solar flare, government/economic collapse, earthquakes and volcanoes, etc.  We want to be a well rounded group with widely varied skills.  We have the funding and the will, now we need the most important part of the equation – dedicated and skilled people.  There are one or possibly two apartments left without occupants when we move.  Rent will be paid until SHTF upon which time we will discontinue monthly rent in return for services.  Up until SHTF members will still be expected to help with farming and livestock in a more limited role depending on job and time availability and participate in prepping drills and training.   Also, depending on skill set we may accept bug-out members that would come on site during a SHTF event but would still be expected to spend some weekends at the property and participate in drills and training.  Get your spot now.  Send me an email at genpurematt at gmail dot com so we can set up a meeting.  All potential candidates will be interviewed off-site and depending on compatibility will be allowed to the location after a probationary period.

Rent on the one bedroom is 450 a month.  The 450 includes electric, gas, water (well) and sewer (septic), and trash (we burn it ;) ) Internet will be included as well via a network set-up for the entire apartment complex. These are brand new apartments so no inside pets.

I also wanted to mention that by helping us with the gardening and livestock you will receive a portion of the produce and meat so your grocery bill will be next to nothing. Our plan is to produce 100% of the fruits, vegetables, dairy, meat, and eggs we consume.

I have purchased 80 acres in Camden county Missouri. I have been slowly doing some prepping over the last 4 years as time and funds permit. This property was my latest investment. I do have a few other things that I have obtained over the last 4 years. Some food , weapons and some survival equipment. We are a family of 6. Would like to find some Great people to help me learn what else we can do and even open to the possibility of building a group that can help with work and some funding. We ourselves do have some funding but more would be even better. Would like to put in underground bunkers to meet any situation for 2-4 family’s. Expensive venture I know but maybe it could be done a little at a time.


Thank You,

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.

~Take care~ Be Safe ~Be Prepared ~

Hello to everyone, I just joined the site and I’m thankful for your time. My name is Phillip, I’m a 56 year old male and in good health. I’m a veteran, I’m married with 3 grown kids. I’m searching for a established group with land were I can help build and contribute in any way it make us a safe refuge from the gloom that the world has turned into. I live in Arkansas and willing to relocate and have travel trailer to live in until a solid structure can be built. I’m willing to swap may labor and devoted time for a place to stay. I’m self employed so I can devote all my time to helping.My wife would be joining me but not at first. I want to do a meet and greet and willing for the group leaders to do a back ground check on myself. I have 40 years of being a mechanic and I can do welding, carpentry, electrical, plumbing, heating and air, refrigeration work, gardening and have experience living in the country around horses, cattle and most farm animals. I by no means saying a know it all and will be open to any ones help as life is a never ending learning school and adventure everyday. all I’m a very avid hunter, fisherman and just started trapping this winter so I have a lot to learn as far as trapping goes. I’m a very avid outdoorsman and have experience in living off grid. I still need to keep learning and am wiling to learn. I can provide a list of on hand materials and equipment to offer. I’m willing to work right beside any one who has the desire to make things good for all of us. I’m more than open to questions and suggestions. Thank you for your time and hope to hear from a good solid established group or start up. I can be reached here or at midnightrider2158 at yahoo dot com. Again thank you to all Phillip

hello all, I have been preppin now for a while and am looking for other families to join me and my family in our preps and training.  We are looking for serious individuals and families who are willing to commit themselves to being prepared cause it is a lot more than just buying firearms and bullets.  Our focus is long term sustainability, we don’t just want to survive, we want to thrive.  I do have family land to serve as a BOL.

I have been doing research and trying to prepare for a while now, and since fate would have it that I’ve landed in St. Louis, and it’s close proximity to the Ozarks, which is one of the few places designated as a safe-zone, or more importantly, a future-zone, I see the advantage of lending myself to an existing group rather than try to organize one on my own. As I am sure you all are aware that we are now very close to a major crisis which I am convinced will hit in 2015.

A little about me:

I am a 47 year old single man, in good physical condition, with no family or friends in the area. I am originally from NJ with an Italian family heritage. (yes, I make great sauce) I graduated High School, I never attended college but I’ve worked and supported myself since the age of 14. I have done every job imaginable in my long career. From dishwasher to computer network engineer. From garbage man to executive manager. From laborer to entrepreneur. I have mechanical and constructional aptitudes, have driven tractor-trailers and been a certified welder. And, although it was a long time ago, I participated in survival training while in the Army attached to the 82nd Airborne Div.

I “woke-up” in 2009 and my desire to help others less fortunate took me on a journey to Peru. While in the jungle there helping cure Malaria and Dengue Fever etc. I was robbed and left stranded. I managed to survive for 4.5 years without money, or help of any kind. And just before returning to the US this past September, I had my own 50 acre farm with 350 banana trees. I admire and can relate well with those who are trying to prepare for this catastrophe we will face. I know the Amazon Jungle is a far cry from the Ozarks, and I don’t claim to be a mountain man, although I grew up and lived for some time in the Appalachian Mountains of NJ. I am a team player, corroborator, or if need be a stand alone operator. I’m fairly intelligent, intuitive, with a lot of common sense. I have old fashioned morals and respect, and characterize myself as a gentleman. I have no addictions, vices or prejudices, and my word and handshake are better than my signature. I am loyal and trustworthy, sometimes to a fault. But I’m learning. I have no money to invest, but I do have some supplies, equipment, firearms and ammo that I am willing to share with the group. I poses no particular skill-set which would entitle me to be called an expert in any field, yet I do feel that I offer many things that will be needed by a group of this type, for the purpose of survival.

Jan 092015

We are new to this site.  We haven’t joined a group before.  My husband and I are looking for like minded individuals in or around our area, that we can interact with bounce ideas off of, learn from and teach what we’ve learned over the years.  We are in the northern part of Missouri.

We are Christians my wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready to prep full time and move to an area with trees and some rain or to join a group. We are looking to set up self-sustainable living before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I have my own tools and equipment, food, water filter, some weapons and ammo, camper to live in till living structure is built.  Looking to build a rammed earth living structure.  If we joined a group, we will need at least 1/2 acre to build and live on.  We want to help others do the same, also willing to work on the common area preparing it for when it all falls apart.   I also have the material to build a shop.  I have two sons (20 & 29) a daughter (23) with 10 month old son and a wife all in better than average health.   No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this. We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in a irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone water will be gone as will civil order.  I am a Nam Vet.  We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with equipment and more.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder and families who were not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I’ve also lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.  Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso and Las Cruces N.M, then Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.  We are debt free and looking for land to buy and start a group.  Or a group with similar values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

My husband and i both have law enforcement experience, (guns, defense, tactical) as well as my mother and step father. We do have children and others who will be joining us in a SHTF situation. Total of 10 adults and 5 children. 2 of those children have experience with firearms as well. So we can hold our own and help protect others. We are looking for a community of others, as there is strength in numbers. We have not invested in a bug out location, or a bunker. We have been looking for the right place. Also have invested in weapons and ammunition, food, and have a nurse in the mix, so were able to provide medical as well. We are in south springfield and looking for wooded acerage, within 30-45 minutes from us to start or join. Anyone interested please comment below with more about yourslef!

Hello to all from rural Cass County, Missouri.

We’re a hard working couple, enjoying life and the country air. I’m interested in networking with other people who are prepping either near or far to share ideas and to get to know better as time goes on.

We’ve no kids but lots of extended family that live far away except for our nephew who lives nearby and is also learning how to prep.

I believe the hubby and I have a lot to “bring to the table” if we eventually join in or at least network with likeminded people.

We are in our mid 50s, fit in both mind and body. We both retired honorably from the U.S. Army after 20 years of service. My spouse still brings home the bacon while I try to be a housewife. It’s hard because I’ve worked at an away- from- home job most of my life but I’m getting the hang of it and expending a lot of energy learning about country life.

We’ve always tried to be prepared for emergencies long before we knew there was a trendy name for it.

We both have retained our basic soldier skills. The hubby has extensive knowledge in mechanics and water purification. He was also an EMT. He grew up on a farm and has a lot of experience with livestock and basic gardening.

I grew up a city girl but my Mom, who grew up on farm during the Depression, taught me a great deal about life and instilled the importance being independent and always being ready for emergencies. My experience in the military, in addition to basic soldiering included all areas of logistics and small arms repair.

What I’m learning about now is the art of poultry management. Any chicken people out there?

Anyone who wants to network with us, let me know. I’m not paranoid but really like to get to know people before sharing a great deal of information.

Keep on preppin’!  😀

Oct 132014

We are a family of 5 looking for a group near Springfield Mo, preferably within 200 mile.  We have been “prepping” for several years now. We have our own supplies, ranging from food, equipment, vehicles, & miscellaneous what nots. So we are most definitely not looking to mooch off of any one, nor to support any moochers either. We’ve a  skill set  that is varied. Welding, fabrication, automotive, mechanical, medical, educational, logistics, & a tendency to think outside the box. We’re quiet people who prefer to mind our own & stay out of sight.

Currently living in Kansas about to move to the Ozarks on 35 acres. I am looking for others to join me and build a community of sorts to be better prepared. There is no running water on property currently but well can be drilled. Most well are 200-300 ft deep. There is one living structure on the land that is a one bedroom. I am gay, 40, and kinda new to prepping. So if you wish to get more info from me or wish to talk then please be ok with gay folks as i have no problem with any one.

Jul 102014

I started prepping 7 years ago when I moved from Springfield to a small farm near Thayer, south of West Plains. I’m a writer and in fact write for Survivalist magazine, and occasionally work with talk radio programs that are liberty minded political or prepper/self reliance oriented. My wife started and operated Ozarks Self Reliant Living University for three years offering free classes on gardening, canning, soap making and other heritage skills. We co-sponsored the Go Green Self Reliance Festival in Thayer, and just had the 6th festival about 3 weeks ago. We’ve had as many as 3,000 people attend the event in the city park with 16 or so speakers on preppers topics, vendors, music, farm animals, etc.
My reasons for meeting other preppers are numerous. First expanding my range of acquantances. I plan to bug in when the SHTF but have a plan B, plan C and plan D. I’d like to have a communciations network set up to stay in touch with like minded people if and when communcations go down, or when we simply no longer trust the info we are given (some would say that is now).
Secondly source material for magazine articles and possible radio show guests and speakers for classes and seminars. If you desire confidentiality it can be provided, no problem. But as an example a friend who makes bows, arrows and traps provided info to me for an article in Survivalist on making your own weapons. Another friend is an expert in steam engines and provides me with info in that area.
I’m also organizing and managing an Expo in Springfield August 16 and 17. I’ll be advertising it heavily on local and area radio stations and may need to hire help in putting up one thousand posters I’m having printed. I also may need to hire people to assist me at the event. I’m including info on the expo in this post. We have nice group of speakers lined up and several good exhibitors already. I can be contacted via phone or email [email protected] or 417 264 2435 Thanks

But not too serious I don’t sacrifice my way of living to throw all of my money into it. I  realistic at what could happen In the future and want to be prepared. I have no interest in sharing property or “going in on a retreat” would like some like minded people to assist with projects that I will have and share there ideas and experience. Also if something were to happen I’d like to have sone people to haven back like I would have theirs. I am a if this is you please contact me so we can talk further, joshua(dot)russell07 at yahoo.

so if you’re not crazy or on a cult or looking for a free ride please contact me.


A little about me:

25 years old combat veteran. I have been prepping for about 3 years. I have a bug out camper and plenty of weapons and ammo. Currently me and my girlfriend are getting into canning and would love to garden when we get our house. I am knowledgable in food storage and have mechanical skills and another skill that isn’t as abundant as it should be, common sense and ingenuity.


Thanks for your time,

New group starting and looking for people willing to jump in for the long haul. There’s a LOT to be done, so you need to be not only interested in a new start, a new beginning, but a new adventure with like minded folks who just want to live in peace as long as there is peace in this country, and be treated equally, not discriminated against because you’re different like I’ve seen so many other groups put limits on the types of people they want. We don’t care if you’re Christian, Muslim, atheist, straight, gay, bi, your skin color or what station you hold in life right now. In our group, the poorest will have as much as the richest, and everybody is expected to pull their own weight, like working in the gardens for instance or hunting. If you want to eat, you have to pitch in. Anyone 16 and over can vote on any issue that comes up, and for the first year or so, there  will be many issues without a doubt, so everybody’s input and cooperation is vital. Again, the group is new, so we need skill sets of many kinds, and we need honest reliable people who want to live peacefully without discrimination, and for the goal of survival. This is no church, nor cult, just regular people wanting something different than what we see and deal with everyday. The adventure is yours if you’re ambitious and willing to contribute all you can and teach all you can, and a group of strangers will become family. If you’re interested contact UnitedPreppers [at] groups [dot] facebook [dot] com or shrimpburger [at] hotmail [dot] com for more info.

Environmental Health and Safety Engineer by trade, I’m well informed and educated and prepped. NOW I need to find groups in my area with which to work. Please contact me if you have further info. Talk soon…

Apr 012014

I’m just going to post this and see if there are others thinking the same thing.

Are there others that would have interest in finding property, building a community that all would share equally without huge additional financial burdens on one person?

we have been looking and looking for property that we can afford to buy as a secondary property but would it be smarter to have a group go together and do this??  I don’t know, I do know I am overwhelmed with everything.

we have lived off grid, did so for over a year down here on solar and a generator, hauled our water.  I raise much of our food, am very good at preserving food if that matters.   older, here don’t do any kind of drugs, don’t believe in western medicine, do smoke cigs but am getting ready to switch to ecigs and try to quit.   Drink very rarely but do have an interest in learning to brew beer and winemaking.    have lots of skills myself and willing to share/help others, just need other liked minded folks to focus with.  I have a disabled roommate (veteran) who is like minded but can’t do a heck of alot and that really drags me down.   I had to quit my part time farm job to handle things here last year when he had back surgery.

I know this probably is a long shot but one never knows.  the legal crap is the part that I don’t know alot about.   But it never hurts to talk to others.  reply here or serious replies only to lonleyrural1967 [at]       even if its just to talk, toss ideas around.   It seems the only folks that I meet are out in the eastern states.
