Hello everyone! I am located in the NYC/NJ area. Started prepping a few years ago slowly. Looking to form or join a group of likeminded individuals from the area. From what I have quickly searched, I have not seen any sort of group formed for this area yet.
Looking for like-minded individuals in the Rochester/Monroe County Area to bounce ideas off of. Currently developing a Home Prepping system/plan.
My name is Jason. I am looking to join a group in my area.
I moved my family to Yates (Lyndonville), NY 4 years ago. i am now starting my journey into self sufficiency and prepping. (Better late then never)…i am a computer / network tech with a variety of skills. I am a Team player and no stranger to hard work.
I’m new to the prepping life and would like to meet people near me, I’m near Madison county ny
It appears that most people are waiting for the outcome of the s-election. Regardless, whoever gets in, we are still going to experience an unprecedented upheaval. 30 years of research and studying have taught me one thing; forget most of what you’ve learned from so-called “survival experts”. Under normal conditions, their advice is accurate and right on point. But when it hits the fan this time, it will be entirely different circumstances. Scriptures will confirm that fact. Increase the odds of your surviving by hearing us out before making the final decision of where, what, why and how.

I learned a great lesson in life about people. There’s people that do, people that talk about doing, and people that do nothing at all.
We’re looking for those that can Think and DO. People that feel, know and understand the signs of what’s been occurring, and has only escalated in the past twenty years. We’ve wasted too much time already, tying to appeal to others ideas about how to prepare. Face it, no matter how much we prepare, there’s always going to be a should have, would have and could have. There are no absolutes in this world. The only absolute there is, is it’s time to dump the log and get off the pot.
There is 2.65 acres up for sale right next to our location, with room on our land for more. We’re 80% prepared and ready to finish, as best anyone can. We have all the tools for building, mechanical, gardening, energy and security. All we need now, is people. People with the ambition, knowledge, ability(financial) and skills to join us. We’ve already spoken with our fair share of crazies, people that don’t have the common sense to take things seriously.
So, if you are serious and realize the urgency, we are willing to share our knowledge, experience, and sincerity in being prepared. We are trustworthy and loyal, with principles and values outlined within the Scriptures. Which means, we do not judge and treat people the way we want to be treated. Extensive research went into choosing this location.
If interested, private message, with email or number. Security protocols will have to be met, to weed out the speculators and spectators.
May our Creator have mercy on all our souls!
Couple expecting a new addition soon is looking for a prepper group to join anywhere in the US that is a good distance away from coastlines. We currently live in Texas but are planning to relocate to upstate NY near the Canadian border in a few months. I’m not particularly crazy about the idea of living that far north where winters are much harsher than what I’m accustomed to but we have a good friend who lives there and she has friends in Canada who may be able to help in a time of crisis in the US, which we both strongly feel will occur sooner than most may think. I’ve known for awhile now that I should be prepping for what is about to take place but haven’t really had the means to do so and have been caught up in distractions that life throws at us all from time to time. We are both on a limited fixed income and neither of us can handle extreme physical labor but their are still many things we are capable of doing at a slower pace than most. Then there are some things we can do at a faster pace like cooking. We have been doing alot of research on survival skills necessary to make it in what we both believe is shortly to begin…the great tribulation that is spoken of in the bible. We have also been researching alternative natural medicines and different styles of durable bug out housing that is cost efficient. We have alot of useful knowledge but with cost of living being so high and our combined incomes being so low it’s very hard for us to obtain property to begin building on or even the other resources needed to start. We are Christians but not affiliated with any type of organized religion and do not wish to be. Our religion is love. Jesus taught love, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness not doctrine. We are looking for a family or small group of folks who already have land they are wanting to work to build a bug out for when SHTF. More than just stockpiling certain items, which we know are necessary, we are interested in obtaining sustainable resources by growing our own fruits and vegetables and having at least a small supply of livestock like chickens for eggs and meat and goats for milk. A fish pond would be awesome too. For us an ideal location for this off the grid bug out camp would be in a well wooded area far from major cities and densely populated areas, and definitely not near any type of military base. A nearby water source is a must as well. We do not wish to join any type of malitia as we do not intend to fight the establishment. This is Gods war not ours and all we seek to do is hide from tyranny and survive as long as possible without being detected. If you own weapons for hunting and protection we are perfectly ok with that. We don’t own any ourselves as of yet but are not opposed to obtaining a few or learning how to use various types of weapons. I feel like I’m writing a novel here so I’m gonna wrap this up. If anyone is interested in having us join them we will definitely be able to help out financially and in many other ways so long as we have a place to reside while preparations are being made. Please contact us ASAP if interested…we fear time is running out. You can contact us via e-mail at clane0234 [at] gmail [dot] com. Be aware that we do not intend to give anyone money up front before we get to know you through various means of communication and arrive at our destination. I may have been born at night but it sure wasn’t last night!

Looking for someone in Broome, Chenango County, NY that would like help learning about homesteading. We live in a 33 ft fifth wheel and would need a place to park with electric and sewer. experienced in canning, gardening, goats, chickens, cattle, knitting, homeschooling, etc.
my brother has been telling me for years to start preparing , and I thought he was insane. With recent happenings I am sad I did not heed his warning. I have started collecting what I think is going to be the most needed of supplies…. Mostly “Projectile”protection, water, flash lights, batteries, food, and hunting fishing supplies.. I am looking for a group in Seneca county ny or surrounding areas, I have three children and a wife . I am a metal fabricator and welder. Avid hunter. If their are no groups in my area maybe some suggestions on other things I should be getting besides water and protection… Any suggestions will be taken seriously no matter how wierd hey may seem now I am sure in the end I will be glad I have them. I can be reached through email as well at Danmyers615 at gmail dot com
Hello. I’m looking to see if there is anyone in NY or who spend time here would like to start a prepping community. If anyone is interested maybe we could talk and bounce plans.
Hello folks, New to the forum and trying to make some contacts. I’m not currently a member of any group and have been part time prepping for a few years. I’m 34 with a wife and 3 kids (4,5,13) I spent over 9yrs in residential construction building houses top to bottom (except HV/AC). I then changed careers and am currently a Paramedic for a regional ambulance co. I’m an avid fisherman and camper, and have been cooking meals since I was 10and enjoy brewing my own beer in my spare time. My wife is self employed and loves vegetable gardening and reading on edible and medicinal plants as well as canning and Pickeling. While I do have other family to prep with, they refuse to heed my warnings and begin to build skill sets and food caches. In light of recent events I’ve decided to reach out and see if I can network with other local preppers in an effort to establish or become a member of a group to either thrive here in NY or relocate and thrive elsewhere. Hope to hear from you soon.
Are there any prepper or homesteading groups/families in upstate NY Warren or Essex county area. Family oriented looking to talk and share ideas. Thanks
I live in Greene county New York. I consider myself an avid survivalist and a have also been prepping for about a year now. I am looking to join an existing group of individuals and families in my area. I’m hoping to find an active group that gets together once a month or so to teach each other skills and to work through various scenarios if the need arises to Bug out, or in.
The U.S. dollar has been the world’s reserve currency for 94 years, but after losing 98% of its buying power and the world realizing it’s fiat status, it has peaked and its days are now numbered. Once again we’re facing the threat of hitting another debt ceiling. Only this time, China has been dumping US dollar denominated assets at historic levels while Chinese companies have begun reducing the amount of dollars they borrow for international transactions. Steps being taken in preparation for China to become a world reserve currency. If you know your history, wars have always been created when world economies begin to fail.
When the politicians, the talking head “experts” and the MSM tell you to not panic, it’s time to wake the hell up … and probably time to panic. So, is it any wonder that the summer of 2015, yet again, set another record for the sale of firearms in the united States? But what good are weapons when we continue to stay divided by the machinations of the incompetents, which have usurped and altered our form of government? Have we become so ignorant and complacent by our pride, we no longer recognize the threats presented from porous borders? The miscreants that control us are well protected by our children we loan to them through military service, under the guise of patriotism, only to be returned to us either broken or dead. Then they are further persecuted or neglected because they hold the title of Veteran. What type of madness does a person suffer from that pays, in so many ways, for their own demise and that of their children? Is it really anti-government, to be anti-evil and have a distaste for secrecy which breeds corruption? The Scriptures tell us, ” Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.” But even doves, sensing a source of impending danger, sacrifice their safety to protect their mate and nest… It’s not advocating violence, to put on His armor and stand in defense of His children and creation. When you are not violent by nature, yet, you are labeled a terrorist because of your faith, belief in the Constitution and desire for freedom. A label courtesy of the Demopublican cartel.
Where does your faith really lay when you acquiesce to evil supplanting their traits upon yourselves? Making your trust of one another far below their levels of trust. So far, in fact, we can’t even pull our families, friends or neighbors together to prepare for what’s coming. We have to create posts like this in an attempt to find strangers we can trust. And, that’s no easy task, either.
Unless you have been living in the trees for the past four decades, you would have seen the mile markers on the way to Fascism/Communism/Marxism (whatever ism you choose). Revealing to you a world bound in secrecy, surveillance, corruption, and lies, culminating into a complete world of civil, moral and economic bankruptcy. If you know what the worlds economy is really built upon, then you know what it will take to survive what is coming and needed to rebuild it after the chaos… So what, you say, I’m ready for it. I’ve got my gold, silver, food, water, tools, weapons and ammo. Bring it on! Yep, you’re ready alright, except for the one thing that will prove to be more precious than any amount of gold you could ever hope to hold. More life saving than all the food storage and medicines you could possibly gather and more valuable than anything you could barter with. Because without it, you’re just another sheep huddled within a stockyard waiting to be singled out and taken to slaughter. Oh yes, listen to the experts, they’ll tell you your survival doesn’t depend on it being there, after all, man has lived without it for thousands of years. But did they? You can have the knowledge of preparing to survive, but having the knowledge does not mean you have the understanding of what will be needed to survive.
There is more and more indisputable evidence coming into focus that is contrary to what you’ve been taught in government controlled schools, which have perpetrated so many lies and illusions. It was once said, ” It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” If you still believe that slaves with ropes and wooden skids built the pyramids, a feat that cannot be duplicated even today, then you need to continue on with your own style of preparing. If you don’t swallow that Bovine Excrement, it shows that you possibly may be a thinker and you need to be aligned with other thinkers.
Two things we are finding many are lacking in their attempt to prepare for a multi-event scenario is lack of security and privacy… In a society without total surveillance amid the perceived threats by those in power, it would be a non-issue. But in today’s world it is very much a concern, and we need to become more prudent about what we put online. Face it, we have become 1984 in 2015 and have to come to terms with how we need to proceed in creating safety in numbers. Placing phone numbers, email addresses, locations and a list of your supplies, especially armaments, is considered, in not just my opinion, very poor judgement. These are things that need to be discussed as private as possible, preferably face to face. I’ve read numerous warnings from the admin of this site, stressing concern over two instances I have listed. If anyone should be listened to, it’s those that created this site.
Ever since the internet was released to the world, most people thought nothing about revealing every detail about their person. They used their full name for their free email, created profiles to accompany them, joined social networks, posted photos of themselves, family, friends, acquaintances, even their locations and where they traveled to. Never once taking into consideration it could be used against them in later days, in order to track them and exploit every aspect of their existence. Only recently, people are beginning to learn they’ve become their own worst enemy, by falling into this now obvious snare of disclosure and apathy. If they would have only taken the time to research and learn where the internet came from, they may have been a little more discreet and less foolish. Which brings me to one of my favorite verses in the Scriptures. Repeated twice, word for word, in the same book, Proverbs. What are the odds? It goes like this, ” A prudent man foreseeth evil and hides himself, the foolish pass on and are destroyed.” Did I also mention, they are the only places in all of the Scriptures, where the word “foreseeth” appears? If you were to recognize just the wisdom alone contained within those verses and they were written for these uncertain times, then it should be a no-brainier’s thought process to adhere to it.
Paranoia, is when there are no factual bases for fear, Common Sense, obviously, dictates the existence of those facts.
Please keep in mind, we are all about security and privacy. We will not divulge anything more than what our plans are, until we are sure about you and.you are convinced we are on to something… Something most of the so-called experts conveniently left out or minimized the importance of. Send us a private message with any thoughts & contact info and we’ll be willing to discuss more with you.
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
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.
