I’m a single male engineer, 32. I am agnostic and libertarian, but personally identify with Christian morals. My retreat is currently my 30-acre farm in the Willamette Valley.
I’m interested in joining another group at a more remote, defensible retreat in Eastern Oregon, Idaho or Montana. This would become my primary retreat, or a backup depending on distance.
My goal is preparing for an economic crash and “killer caravan” scenario. I feel this scenario would be difficult to resist without a large group and hardened retreat, which my farm does not provide very well.
I grew up in Oregon on a farm and am acquainted with carpentry, gardening, ham radio, and firearms, but not an expert. I’m willing to invest to improve my skills in an area the group would need.
My brother is an MD and my mother is a retired nurse. They may gradually come to see the need to prepare. I hope for them to join up someday but can’t speak for their plans at this point.
My preps so far have included: LASIK, obtaining 10k rounds ammo, 2 carbines, 1 MBR, 5k ft barbed/razor wire, 2 years Mountain House food, 3 antibiotic kits, and photovoltaic panels.
Looking for a group whose members are well-educated, polite and cultivated, like the fellow country folks I grew up with. Regarding leadership, I’d prefer a group with strong central authority and ability to make firm decisions.
If you have openings or just want to hang out and discuss, please contact me. I can meet near Portland, Corvallis, or Salem and visit the Bend area monthly. Also planning a trip to Idaho this summer.
