We are going to be hosting an emergency preparedness expo near Hagerstown, MD, August 17-18, 2013. Our goal is to bring vendors/exhibitors from the Mid-Atlantic region and beyond. Details can be found on our website, which should be online by the end of the week. I will post the web address at that time. In the meantime, feel free to contact us at beprepared2013 [at] yahoo [dot] com. Our goal is to provide an educational venue on the East Coast similar to what is provided in Nashville, Denver, Arlington, TX, and other western and central US cities. Please spread the word.
hello my name is Spencer. I am looking for an area group to bounce ideas off of, to learn from, to connect with. I am a carpenter and know enough about a lot of things to get into trouble aka jack of all trades, I drive tractor trailers and operate heavy equipment now. I am not religious but if that’s an issue with you then we probably don’t need to speak.
Hi to the New England members. I’m prior service USCG and Navy was a diver and was attached to AV, SW and other units. Have extensive knowledge and use of all types of firearms. Currently own a company that builds, repairs and services commercial industrial propane facilities. So, I also have a vast knowledge of all things propane related. GF is active duty and will be retiring in a year. We will more than likely be living in the the southern NH area for 6 mo’s during the winter and living on our boat in Mass waters the 6 mo’s of summer. Have been prepping for a while. Looking to link up currently with like thinkers. Currently living in southern NH. Drop a line. Josh professionalpropane at hotmail dot com.
I have a partner as well, and two small dogs. I’ve been preparing for 5 to 7 years, maybe 10, maybe 11, depending on how you look at it.
Anyway, I am looking to buy or join others on a property approximately 15 to 30 acres and position several all-season travel trailers on the land, or perhaps some other arrangement if someone else has something better in mind. I’m flexible on location right now, since I have none at the moment. Thinking about upstate NY, central/western/northern VT, western Mass, NH, possibly Maine, possibly CT.
At the moment I live on five acres overlooking the Hudson River about 20-something miles north/northwest of the city, about 35 minutes by express train from Grand Central, 45 minutes by car.
The more serious that I get about it, the more uncertain my “serious” prepper friends become about it, and that really concerns me. I have suggested a budget of $50,000 per household, being $30,000 toward land purchase and $20,000 toward housing accommodation. Well that got cold feet, and that concerns me because I don’t see how we could actually get by a freezing cold winter of 4- to 5- months long unless we are prepared to pay for it. Perhaps we could do with a lesser budget for land were we to find something suitable in NH or ME.
So I am looking to find others who are seriously interested and/or who may already have land and might be interested in my joining with my partner.
My husband and I are looking for a community of preppers in Southern, NH. We have just started prepping and wanted to be involved with a group of local preppers.
Hello everyone, I am Ryan and I live north of Boston a bit. Yes, Chelsea ma. I been training in and out of the Army (19D Cav Scout Recon)for over 12 years now.

Train as you Fight.
Hey how you doing fellow preppers out there I’m .was just wondering the cost of any land out there in NH,VT,ME,MA, CTor NY all in higher elevations, at least 500 feet or more above sea level on an acre or two of land .. It just came to me to look up online for others like me . Ive tried talking with people I know and no “dice” , Some people are just stuck in that Neanderthal stat of mind.. O.. Well……. Im a great asset to any group or camps of preppers with skills and supplies . Iv been getting ready for a year 1/2 now I have everything I need to survive a full year or more without leaving the house.. I have seeds of all kinds to plant, 55 gal drums of gas, propane, kerosine , generators, heaters… Water, water filters,weapons,, plenty of weapons and great amounts of ammunition.. Willing to help who ever with building a good location but don’t want to pay $$ to much for land when I could use that money $$ towards more supplies and shelter . . I would be able to put some serious time into working on a location I come alone not married or kids.. not yet anyway;; . I prep to be safe and ready!!! for what ever comes our way these day time are changing really fast and if you don’t see that then your a fool, I’ve tried to cover all the bases as far as what could happen and where but I still have a lot to learn (I just purchased a few books on hunting, trapping, plating, defense ect,ect.. But already know a bit on everything .. This is when others and other groups come in hand… I’m fit, have my own business 24 years now.. im really good with my hands and can build anything and fix anything figure out situations of all sorts, Well I’ve said enough,, I think we should talk and maybe meet so we can get a better sense of one another .. Need that trust!!! jmskimcoat [at] aol [dot] com.. Hope to hear back from you … Prep On!!!!
Hello, I am looking for a community to join in the New Hampshire area. I am currently in the Boston area and very new to preppeing. If there is anyone who would appreciate the help and have room for three more hardworking people, please leave me a message.
hi i am new to prepping looking for fellow preppers in the lakes region.i would like to learn as much as possible but like a lot of people money is really tight.i look forward to hearing from other people
We’re a family of three: one medical doctor, one veteran and a jack-of-all trades contractor. We’ve just started thinking about prepping … just in case … and we have a home garden, stream, pond, artesian well, as well as proximity to the Piscataqua River. Two of us are expert with firearms; not the doctor, though. We’d like to network with others to discuss how to take care of ourselves, as well as how to better serve our community. Let us know if anyone in our southern Maine/NH have any ideas on this. Many thanks!
I’m looking to meet prepper group’s in central Vermont/N.H. and else where.
Hi, I’m from the North Shore of Boston and I’ve posted on this site last winter (you should find my older post if you search me) to kick off some ideas I was working on, since then I put up a website about a project to establish a micro community (a few families or individuals to possibly a lot more if the demand is there) in Southeastern NH.
I’ve been very busy, as so many of us are, and a recent email from a California couple got me motivated to finish up a little house cleaning on my unfinished website to organize a group for southeastern NH. It was funny that the interested persons brought up moving to NH as primary motivation presented by the Free State Project, which I wasn’t aware of, in which NH was picked to head the movement http://freestateproject.org/ This reconfirmed my feelings toward NH having lots of potential for liberty minded people.
For anyone interested in knowing more, you can check out my website for establishing a micro community to be among like-minded people in a growing like-minded state, working together to weather the coming storm through better self-reliance.
There are various levels of prepping to suit everyone’s interest, this project might be what you are looking for. http://microcommunitynh.org/
Big or tiny, I’m looking to get something solid in the works this fall/winter for the spring.
All the best,
My wife and I have signed up for the free state project and are moving to NH. We are both in the medical field and are both trying to prep. However, it is hard in California so we are going to make the move to NH. I am looking for like-minded people to connect with and if it is right, hope to have multiple families on one property with the same goals in mind. We are looking at buying a nice portable cottage and parking it on a plot of land. Since it is technically portable, we wouildn’t need a permit. So, I’m looking to hopefully find someone with acreage that needs help with work and resources in exchange to let us have a small little section to have for our nice little cabin. IF we can’t find this situation, then we will have to purchase our own and do it on our own but I know how much work this takes. My dad has done it in California and I helped set everything up so I know just how to do it. I have to move out of Cali because we have a daughter who I refuse to allow in our public schools out here.
About us, we are 30 years old with a 2 year old daughter. We are both Christians but don’t beat people up with our views, just try to love and help others. I am a tireless worker with prepping experience, gardening experience, etc. I am handy. We make good money but can’t afford to do EVERYTHING on our own but would love to help contribute to bettering like minded people’s situation, while bettering our’s in the process.
Please respond if interested
Good Day Everyone,

MO,ME,VT,NH,CO,WV and maybe northern part of Tenn. this is just a few, where we can grow a garden, hunt for our food in hunting season, have a cabin or camp for shelter, along with a wood cook stove. we have started to prepare for this already just having a hard time finding the right land for X amount of $’s My Husband is a Disabled Vet so he will have some income to help out with going into a town for supplies. We are trying to find other like minded couples or a group to do this type of living. we are both in our mid-forty’s we will not be able to move until next year about July/Aug time frame, we have a son that is a senior in school. you can send me a message on here or at r_c76 at hot mail dot com.

I am close to 50, male, and have thus far not been a prepper or survivalist. Currently, I am alone and live in the Boston area and want to move to a less densely populated area.
When the SHTF and there is civil unrest (because of food shortages, the unavailability of EBT cards, looting, flash mobs, etc.), being in a densely populated area will be undesirable, to say the least.
Various survivalist/prepper groups or compounds that are being formed are not particularly interesting to me, just moving to a less densely populated area is what I want to do. Right now, I can’t afford a big move and also don’t want to move alone.
I’ve been looking at specific states, the current shorter list is New Hampshire, Kentucky and North Carolina (and maybe Tennessee).
Before recently, I wasn’t considering New Hampshire because of the extreme cold weather, and concern about extended power outages if the SHTF and collapse occurs. But some people have said there are many trees in NH to use for wood stoves, etc (and a lack of environmentalists preventing you from doing that, like in Massachusetts!). Also, one benefit during power outage in cold weather is storing food outside (in the snow, if necessary).
And I am no longer considering Virginia because there is too much US gov throughout Virginia including underground, and just too close to DC for my tastes.
I don’t smoke, drink or do drugs, and I believe in non-aggression as a guiding principle, as well as private property and voluntary exchange, and localism and decentralization. I work from my home computer, and I have basic “domestic” skills (like housecleaning), but have very little camping or outdoors experience.
My wife and I are interested in networking with prepared folks in the Portsmouth, NH area. We are relatively new to prepping; however, we both come from practical backgrounds and view prepping as just another set of skills and supplies to acquire. I am a civil engineer (EIT, UNH grad) with a strong practical background in electronics, machining/fabrication, and construction. My wife and I were both homeschooled until college and plan to homeschool ourselves when little ones come along. We both have a deep love of liberty and the principles that made this country great.
Our goal is to form or join a group of like-minded people in the Portsmouth/seacoast area that can call upon each other when things get tough and form a network of extra “eyes and ears” as things get more complicated. We have a bug-out plan to another region of Southern NH, but recognize that our current residence is our home and will be our “Plan A” except in the most dire of circumstances.
I can bring knowledge and equipment to the table in the following areas: engineering, construction (heavy and light), electronics (practical and theory), water treatment, radiation safety, RF/lasers, automotive, firearms, reloading, machining, and I have competencies just about anything technical. We are trying to grow vegetables in an apartment situation and love innovating on a budget! I am not an outdoorsmen by many people’s standards, but enjoy a day’s work outside building, cutting wood, or fixing something. My wife and I would love to get to know folks with expertise in outdoor survival, storing food, Ham radio, hunting/shooting, theoretical physics, or any other topic, really. We love to learn!
New range buddies always welcome, as are recommendations on where to go in southern NH to hone skills with a rifle.
New prepper in Southern NH, Nashua area. Looking for others to share ideas and talk about prepping with. Have a couple other people in Mass in my small, fledgling group. Look forward to hearing from others.
I am an extremely educated person with insight and information on exactly what’s going to happen. I am relocating to NH to gather my children (2) and mother. In the beginning of august is when flooding/earthquakes will start and the financial collapse of our economy. So that mark is the beginning of the 6 months this whole shift will happen. I won’t get into all the details here however i am seeking other peppers’ with land we can dig a shelter in. Yes dig, too many homes have windows and will let in the gamma radiation that the sun will produce. After viewing the magnetic poles and the weakening of the electromagnetic shield that protects us they will come down for up to 3-4 weeks. During that time we will have to stay underground. I am not telling people that to scare them but to inform them as to what will happen. A lot of things are coming onto place that the government does not want you to know and i have had the privilege to spend hundreds of hours seeking the truth. I will bring as much documentation as i can. I am only in need of a small community that is like minded in saving our asses from what’s about to come. Please no religious nuts, racist, or negative people please, but if you are spiritually aware that’s good (like aware that we all have a common bond). What i bring to the group other than the knowledge of what’s to upturn is the basis of radiant free energy, solid state energy, and whatever else to produce electricity after the grid goes down. i am a bit of a huntsman/woodsman survivalist, can fix almost anything that can break, aware of how to purify water, and know what supplies are essential to us to thrive as a group. If anyone out there knows that all hell is about to break loose and this message finds its way to your heart, please be human and out of the love that god made us all from help us protect and teach each other. I will be moving to NH by mid-late July and will work endlessly to secure the future of our human race. Let’s stop looking at everyone else has and look inward to what we have in ourselves.
We are one guy and one family that has taken a serious approach to prepping. I am somewhat new and my friend is more experienced. (sp,lol) We are looking foe like minded people that we can learn and grow with and or integrate small group with.
We’ve been prepping for a few years now but we’re always looking to network with like-minded folks. Our goal is to be in a position where we can do more than just get by. We want to be able to help others. To that end, we are happy to answer any questions you may have and we would hope to get some of our questions answered as well. We believe that we are smarter as a group than as individuals. Thank you.
