Family of six maybe seven looking to move with 30 to 60 days notice.

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 join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle 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 CEB (compressed earth block) living structure.  I am also building my own CEB press.  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 am learning every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  I also have the material to build a shop 39’x40′ with CEB walls from local soil.  I have two sons (21 & 30) a daughter (23) with 16 month old son (possibly a son-in-law) 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 rioting with 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 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 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.  We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

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”?? :-) )

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.

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 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.

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.

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!

Nov 012014

We are looking to start a Christian Midwest bug out group, with approx 30 families from Illinois,Indiana,Kentucky, and or Missouri.We must limit the individual campsites to seven family members. housing must not be permanent should someone present a problem down the road and is voted (off the island] camper or skid is fine. Each campsite will share  work load as we will rotate by campsite.  we plan to be self sufficient and off the grid location is off the path and game is plentiful unlike other bug out locations who do not want you their until it hits the fan. we encourage all members to show up often to ready your home and know your neighbors to build a good rapport. If this is your desire and plan to be part of a functional family for the long hall please respond a.s.a.p.  thank you and May God Bless.

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

I’m interested in collaborating with responsible and motivated individuals in the southern Missouri/Northern Arkansas area. If you already have a group it will still be nice to get to know my neighbors. If you want to work together please either bring something to the table or be willing to learn.
