ARE THERE ANY REAL PREPPERS OUT THERE? I mean LIKE MINDED. Net working sharing ideas that’s all fine and dandy. but when not acted upon is just useless talk, and you know what they say “talk is cheap” I’ve noticed many are just romancing prepping. Their mind goes there but their body never shows up. Just networking won’t keep your lights on it won’t keep the water running it won’t feed you. It wont come to your rescue if you have problems.
The idea of prepping is simple. What you want to prep for can make if complicated. How well you can prep depends on your financial situation. We prep for what I strongly believe will be an economic collapse of this country. No person, family, city, county, state, or country can operate outside of a budget forever. Sooner or later the bill comes due. When it does it will most likely make our U.S. currency worthless. Then the question will be how will you live or how well will you live. We prep because we want to maintain as close to a normal life as we now have accepting some changes we will have to make just due to the situation at hand, but it doesn’t matter how well you prep. In the end it will come down to how well you can take it. Because their will be more unprepared people than prepared ones. When people start going hungry they will do things otherwise they wouldn’t do when instinct to survive kicks in. No matter if you go to the mountains or where ever, somebody sooner or later will stumble across you by accident or hunt you out deliberately. The real challenge will be can you protect the ones you love and can you take care of the preparations you have made to insure you and yours survival. The greater the number in a committed family the better the chances of surviving are.
We have been prepping for almost 8 years now. Only 4 of us have mainly built to what a few have called a small piece of heaven. I don’t quite see it that way…LOL It’s been a LOT of hard work, and a LOT of money to get as far as we have and I still see a ways to go before I will feel I’ve done my best to provide for my love ones and have provided all the means necessary to take care of it. We are looking for LIKE MINDED PREPPERS who are looking for the same as we are. Prepping takes commitment. For family’s to join together it takes honesty, trust, and most of all respect. Communication is the key to all that and more. So to answer your question. What are you looking for?
We are a family of 4. we have been hard core prepping for 8 years now. We have two acres along the Alabama Florida line. We are looking for like minded families who are already peppers or is severely interested in prepping. We are looking for families or individual(s) to join us. We are not looking to form a group but more of an extended family. One’s who would possibly move/live on site to share the work with us. Or help out on weekends who feel they may need a bug out location. We have added additions on to our house. We have turned a 3 bedroom 2 bath house into a 7 bed room 4 bath house. We are looking to do one more addition. Which will be 4 rooms and a bath room. 2 stories tall with a 3rd floor as a observation platform. We also have a mobile home which is almost completely remolded to house a family also. We totally remodeled an out building into a studio apt. one full bed room living area and full bathroom. Would love to put one more mobile home on the property. Septic tank is already there water too. Also could place a couple of RVs there for any one who’s interested in that. We also have over 100 chickens, over 40 turkeys, They are housed in a 24 X 100 foot long pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s with tin roof covering the entire thing. 26 hogs housed in a 36 x 36 tin roof covered pen’s broke down to 12 x 12 pen’s. With water ran to all animal pen’s. We have a 8 x 16 shed that houses 4 incubators and a bitty bruter for hatching chickens and turkeys. We have 50, 55 gallon food grade drums of grain corn for human and animal consumption. We have 50, 55 gallon drums of animal feed for our animals. We have a solar powered well free from the grid for water. We also have a complete solar system to power our entire house free from the grid. We have built a EMP proof room to protect the solar power components. We have a 25,000 gallon above ground pool that serves not only as entertainment but as a reserve water supply also. It has a screened in deck with a flat screen TV and DVD player for entertainment and relaxation, including a 12 person pick nick table. We have a 150 gallon solid fuel hot water heater. We have a 12 x 24 glass green house a garden area with a above ground sprinkler system. We have converted from electric to gas cooking with enough fuel to cook for at least 4 to 5 years now. I have a shop area with tools, welder, cutting torch to build and fabricate what ever we may need. We are currently putting in a out door kitchen. We are installing a 6 foot fence around the property. We do have much much more. We have implemented back up systems for almost every thing We work hard! We are very neat and organized. We are looking for others to join us for I know a single family cannot stand alone. We will not accept any FREELOADERS. We do not ask for any financial help. Only that you PREP provide what personal stuff you may need for yourselves at this current time.That means food and all personal things you want or feel you need to live as close to a normal life. If you feel you can and want to contribute financially that’s fine. If you don’t mind working hard caring for animals and getting your hands dirty a little we just might be the ones for you. We are looking for like minded individuals that know what is coming in this country and don’t mind WORKING HARD TO SURVIVE IT OR TO TAKE CARE OF IT. We are dug in deep no plan for bugging out! IF and I do mean IF we felt we had to bug out we have also in the family a 100 acres only 20 min’s away…This is the first time I have included this in any of my post.
WE ARE LOOKING FOR LIKE MINDED PREPPERS. PLEASE!!!!! HAVE SOME UNDERSTANDING OF WHAT THIS MEANS. I want to address some issues I have ran into. We are just down home good old southern folks. We believe in God, the Bible, Country, and the Constitution but were not going to beat you over the head with a bible. Yes occasionally I like to drink a beer but I’m no drunk. No we don’t want illegal drugs brought here or grown here. NO were not providing some kind of retirement community. We all work here! I know this site was set up to help LIKE MINDED PREPPERS, to get in touch communicate, and form groups. Sadly I have noticed its being used for much more than that. If you feel you are a LIKED MINDED PREPPER then email me at Knightmagic101 @ aol {dot} com. I will return your email with a cell number so we can talk. I have had a lot of people contact me I have enjoyed the conversations with all. I have noticed all most all have done little prepping or lack the resources or financial means to do any prepping. We do not hold that against any one wanting to join us. Here’s the key issue. Pets,… mainly Dogs. I’m sorry we cannot take in any one with dogs. Especially keeping them inside the house. We just cannot have people living in and around the house and others in other dwelling and all with several dogs. There’s to many problems associated with this. Sanitary is the prime reason. I could list many others. So no matter how well you say your dog is house trained or gentle it is. The answer is NO. NO DOGS or Cats. I have already went against my call on this one once and have lived to regret it. Besides who’s going to feed them in a SHTF situation. We can not take our feed for our live stock to feed dogs. IF You have a solution that you think will work run it past me. I’m not heartless to the love of animals. But for the safety and well being of all you have to draw a line somewhere. If you think you have a good idea run it past me Maybe it might work…as long as its OUTSIDE THE HOUSE NOT INSIDE… So Happy Prepping and maybe I will hear from you. Thanks Rick…  email me at    Knightmagic101  @  aol  .  com

Greetings,

We are a couple (both 35) with a nearly three year old son.  We have been preparing and training in Northern California for years, but are no longer confident that this is a safe area to live through the increasing earth changes and what may come.

As such, we are looking to strategically relocate and join a high-trust, thoroughly self-sufficient community that includes other families.

We respect operational security, but do require a sufficiently open dialog that we can develop the requisite trust to move forward.  While this is necessarily a process, it’s also an urgent one.

Some of our interests and areas of expertise include:

Growing/harvesting
Cooking, fermentation, pickling

Firearms
Survival
Licensed amateur radio operator

Electronics & repair; Software/Internet
Music:  Piano, Guitar, Harp; Theory, Education
Art
Parenting / teaching
Philosophy & Counseling

Health & Fitness
Nutrition & anti-cancer diet

Both experienced entrepreneurs, which means applying infinite creativity in solving endless problems and working with others to build something real.

There is clearly much more.  I am confident we can make a meaningful contribution to any community, particularly given that we share a goal of securing a future for our families.  Eager to discuss how we can work together.

If you are such a group, or know of any groups looking for families, please reach out:  christian ѳ props ˑ org

All the best, and God bless.

Confused as to Next Steps in Preparing? 

The present facts of our current and emerging reality coupled with your gut-level intuition about what is getting ready to happen can no longer be ignored…we are heading for a major life-altering event. You’ve come to the unsettling conclusion that there are too many danger signals to deny.

Rather than waiting until you’re facing fundamental societal change to determine how ready you are, the wise choice would be to join a group that is serious about preparing for an event. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secured location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

Our 50-acre retreat has all of the needs necessary for long-term survival under any circumstances with all of the housing, agricultural, domestic/wild game, and energy technology solutions necessary for thriving and not just surviving.

Who We Are

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks committed to preparing for an event. Many of our membership are former military so we bring that self-discipline and spirit of camaraderie. Skilled medical personnel as well as all of the necessary disciplines for all aspects of a working society are part of our ranks.

Our leadership team, composed of former military,  is guided by a 360+ page operations manual to support our members. We have also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol which has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts.

Our motto is: Plan, Prepare, and Practice. Consequently, we have extensive skills, safety, survival and defensive training sessions with skilled professionals. An extensive list of training topics covers all areas of maintaining and further development of a self-sustaining and secure community that can prosper over time rather than dwindle and become vulnerable.

We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

 

There May Be A Place for You in Our Community

We are seeking additional skills to add to our mix. No anti-government types, militants or racists. We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America. Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as background and criminal checks.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types). We are not “Bible-thumpers” but we do have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs. We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a well-organized, like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application. We start with a phone call first. If we each see a shared vision and compatibility, we will share an extensive list of features within our community that we have barely hinted at in this introduction.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today and we will send you an in depth description along with a link to a video about the group.  If you are still interested, we can discuss requirements.  Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com (sgtprepper2 [at] gmail [dot] com) to request more info,  an application and list of further requirements.

We are committed—are you?

Are you REALLY ready for the Event your intuition warning you about?

  • How ready are you if it happened next month?
  • Have you thought about safety and skills in numbers? We have.

The facts and your intuition about what is getting ready to happen can’t be denied…we are heading for a major life-altering event.

Then join a group that is serious about preparing for an event.  There is safety and skills in numbers. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secure location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

We are an organized multi-family prepper retreat located in central North Carolina.  Our membership comes from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. We don’t live there–we just prepare it for the day we know we will have to live there. We are not sure what will take place or when but we know it will. It is not a matter of if…it is a matter of when.

The 50-acre retreat has a deep well with pristine water (with a backup manual pump), a pond and a fast-flowing creek. Deer, wild turkey and rabbit are abundant. We raise livestock such as rabbits, chickens, goats and ducks.  We have several gardens (raised beds and tilled ground).   We grow food for consumption and medicinal plants as well. We also have a fruit orchard and numerous fruit bushes.  As a back-up, we have been planting natural growing non-cultivated food sources such as tubers, blackberries, etc.  Our objective is to be self-sufficient when we have to occupy our retreat.  We are also constructing a greenhouse to cultivate vegetables, sprouts and seedlings for longer growing seasons.

We have recently added numerous solar panels to the ones we had stored.  We have a dedicated team working on Energy to determine exact power needs.

It is our belief that there is safety in numbers and a wider range of skill sets as well. We feel it is critical to store and prepare together than risk an isolated effort that cannot be defended when social order collapses. We all value our families’ safety enough to collaborate in preparing for that event.

I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an infantry unit as part of five years in the US Army. I have also served as CEO of three successful companies in my career so I know how to organize people and projects.

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks preparing for an event.  Many of our membership are former military.

The retreat includes a small medical clinic as our membership includes several doctors, a RN and an EMT. We are prepared for many medical emergencies or situations.

In addition to the medial staff listed above, our members also include several electrical engineers, an auto mechanic, a teacher, retired infantryman, a competition shooter/fisherman, a seamstress, contractor, a former SWAT member and trained aviation mechanic and assembler. We have formed teams to address security/weaponry, medical care, food production, food preparation, communications, construction and energy.  Each team has a Team Leader and organizational charter.

Our motto is: Plan…Prepare…Practice.   

Our three-person Leadership Team (all former military) sets executive policies and provides operational day-to-day decisions.  Issues that involve long-term implications or significant allocation of resources are bought before the group for discussion and input.  We do not run our organization like a commune or home owners association —but more like a corporate or quasi-military organization.  If you are looking for a pure democracy with extended deliberations and a vote on everything while progress is measured at a snail’s pace… pass us by.  If you are looking for a group to join that you can maintain a passive enrollment, store food with your “name on the list” for “when the balloon goes up”… we are not the group for you.  We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

  • Operational facilities and extensive sustainable survival provisions maintained in a high state of readiness with the services of a full-time caretaker and group projects conducted at regular meetings.
  • Personal and group training in sustainable living skills (gardening, livestock, construction, food preservation/preparation), operational security / defensive skills, and medical/TCCC (tactical combat casualty care) training.
  • Solid relationships between members based on trust, competence, and contributions to the group over an extended period of time. Everyone in the community contributes from their resources and skill sets to make us a stronger group.

We hold monthly Gatherings which are also Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend every month. During a typical weekend we conduct numerous training sessions and defense simulations. Firearms and security training is part of every session and members are encouraged to seek out individual firearms training as well.  These workshops include working on developing the retreat as well as developing our skill sets. Many of our members have attended homesteading skill and survival training programs at conferences to improve skills. We have a 360+ page operations manual to support our members.

We also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol that has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts. We have a 25-meter and 125-meter pistol and rifle range and provide training in basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use at every Gathering.  We have several trained instructors.  We also have an extensive CCTV camera system for surveillance with several monitoring stations. Our onsite security is 24/7-365.  We take our security seriously.  After all, if you can’t defend it…it is not yours.  Ours is defensible.

Additional training topics we have presented have included foot patrolling techniques, small unit tactics, first aid and trauma medical care, compass reading and orienting, gardening, battery storage, food packaging, water purification, alternative energy devices, running & gunning, cheese sealing, EMP protection, herbs and homeopathy, essential oils, sanitation, candle making, tactical gear, operating earth moving equipment, solar energy, slaughtering and dressing of domestic livestock, and survival skills, etc.

We have accommodation cabins, RV spaces, a medical clinic, 2 laundry rooms, a well-house with backup manual well pump, a 3-room bath house with showers and laundry facilities, community center, provisions storage area, commercial kitchen and communications center/operations room. We have a large amount of stored water, solar energy, propane supply and wood burning as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include multi-layer nesting of all electronics within Faraday Cages.

We have installed a four-stage air filtration unit (with large bank of deep-cycle marine batteries) for our fallout shelter that can remove 99.99% of the impurities in the event of a NBC or fallout event. Every member has to have a functioning gas mask and fresh filter.  Our fallout shelter is self-contained and able to sustain the community members for weeks, if needed. We also have calibrated radiation monitoring equipment, dosimeters and hazmat suits for clean-up and outside monitoring.

To support our communications center, 5 of our members have Ham licenses.  Our communications center will monitor radio traffic and stay connected with a network of other ham operators when the event occurs. We also have our own internal switchboard system with hard-wired phone system.  As a precaution, we have duplicate equipment for everything—back-ups to back-ups..

The governance bodies are: an Ops Leader, Assistant Ops Leaders (Leadership Team) and a Community Council (made of adult members).

Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) at $250/month to pay for on-site caretaker/security personnel and utilities to man 24-7.  We all share in the development of the community through work every monthly Gathering. We don’t occupy the retreat until an event has occurred. Our members can also use the property for R&R to enjoy hunting, fishing, relaxing as we are surrounded by a large area with plentiful game.  We do have a one-time membership fee of $750 that is non-refundable. We have one cabin available as well as a several RV spaces (RV has full range of sewer, water and power hook-ups).

We are looking for capable and willing folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as energy (solar, etc.) patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, hunting, etc. We are also seeking additional skills to add to our mix.  No anti-government types, militants or racists.  We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America.

Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and a background and criminal check.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types).  We are not “Bible-thumpers” but have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs.

We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application.

The retreat is ready to be occupied by members at a moment’s notice. We keep the candle burning 24/7.  You could be one of those able to flee the perils of the decline of social order for the security of a small well-trained, organized, and prepared community.  How important is your family’s welfare and security? What are their lives worth to you?  Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones when everything turns upside down. It is like owning an insurance policy you never want collected or that spare tire you keep in your trunk.

Don’t be caught in your house as the armed gangs are going door-to-door pillaging.

We have been told by several TV production companies that have approached us for filming that we are one of the most organized groups they have come across.  Then why haven’t you seen us on TV?  It is simple…our OpSec and obscurity is far more important than ‘15 minutes of fame.’  We are preppers–not food hoarders or entertainers.

If you want to see a video of our group, then go to YouTube and search for “Tranquility Ridge r2”.  You should get a sense of our group from the video. We are serious folks and have a mission that is reviewed every meeting.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today. Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com to request an application and list of further requirements.  We are committed—are 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

We are seeking some mature Christian disciples who would like to become a part of a “community of disciples” living together on the same piece of property and helping each other through the difficult times that are coming very shortly. We have 15.5 acres of land in northwestern North Carolina in the Brushy Mountains. We already have a 700+ foot deep well with plenty of good water, a creek on the property, an apple orchard, raised bed garden, a chicken coop, a mobile home for our family, several outbuildings, a beautiful library, wild game (deer and turkeys), blackberries, blueberries, and fig trees growing. We have incredible mountain views in every direction and several great building sites on the property.

We are looking for mature disciples who are walking close to the Lord on a daily basis, abiding in Him, prayer warriors, who know how to love and serve other people and walk in the fruit of the Spirit, and who desire to live together in community, loving and supporting one another. We need people who can bring skills, knowledge, tools, and resources with them to contribute to the building of a small community of disciples. We are rich in Christ, rich in family, rich in land, rich in wildlife, rich in Biblical truth, rich in love, rich in Biblical knowledge and books and study, while at the same time we are somewhat poor in resources, machinery, and skills. For example, we have an excellent deep well, but have no funds to buy a deep well pump to be able to access the water without electricity. We have plenty of land for growing things and raising animals, but we lack a tractor and even a riding lawnmower.

I grew up on the mission fields of Central Asia, and later served the LORD in Japan, South Sudan, and most recently in Haiti. I am married and we have two precious children ages 9 & 11. We live out our faith from what I like to call a Biblical Hebraic perspective, which means that we celebrate the Feasts of the LORD throughout the year, we believe in keeping God’s commandments and walking in His ways, we keep the Sabbath and rest from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, and we eat only what the Bible calls clean foods. We believe in all of the gifts of the Spirit and all of the fruit of the Spirit. We love God with all of our hearts, souls, and resources, and seek to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are living a set apart life walking in the narrow way. We are also homeschool parents and teach our own kids the fear of the LORD and how to walk in God’s commandments. We do lots of canning and are considering getting goats soon for milk, cheese, yoghurt, and meat.

If you would be interested in joining hands and hearts with another family or two in a community of disciples who are sold out completely to Jesus Christ and living according to His commandments and His Kingdom principles, then please contact us via this website. We have room for someone who has a motor home or a camper or even for someone who wants to start by pitching a tent. We have plenty of timber on the property and would like to build a community latrine, laundry area, and shower/bathing area. The first step would be for us to start corresponding by email and talking via telephone, getting to know each other. Then, as the Spirit leads, we would set up a face-to-face meeting here at our property and get to know each other better and show you the property and discuss the possibilities. If you are interested, add some information about your interest in the comments section, including how to reach you by email or phone. Or you can use this site to send me a message.

Hello all,

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.

– JP

Are you REALLY ready for the Event?

  • What if it happened next month?
  • Would it make more sense to affiliate with a group of like-minded folks who are organized and prepared for such an event because there is safety and skills in numbers?

The facts and your intuition about what is getting ready to happen can’t be denied.  We are heading for a major life-altering event.  Your logic is telling you something big is going to happen.

Then join a group that is serious about preparing for an event.  There is safety and skills in numbers. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secure location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

We are an organized multi-family prepper retreat located in central North Carolina.  Our membership comes from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. We don’t live there–we just prepare it for the day we know we will have to live there. We are not sure what will take place or when but we know it will. It is not a matter of if…it is a matter of when.

The 50-acre retreat has a deep well with pristine water, a pond and a fast-flowing creek. Deer, wild turkey and rabbit are abundant. We raise livestock such as rabbits, chickens and ducks.  We have several gardens (raised beds and tilled ground).   We grow food for consumption and medicinal plants as well. We also have a fruit orchard and numerous fruit bushes.  As a back-up, we have been planting natural growing non-cultivated food sources such as tubers, blackberries, etc.  Our objective is to be self-sufficient when we have to occupy our retreat.  We have also constructed a greenhouse to cultivate vegetables, sprouts and seedlings and adding a larger greenhouse to allow longer growing seasons.

We have recently added numerous solar panels to the ones we had stored.  We have a dedicated team working on Energy to determine exact power needs.

It is our belief that there is safety in numbers and a wider range of skill sets as well. We feel it is critical to store and prepare together than risk an isolated effort that cannot be defended when social order collapses. We all value our families’ safety enough to collaborate in preparing for that event.

I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an infantry unit as part of five years in the US Army. I have also served as CEO of three successful companies in my career so I know how to organize people and projects.

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks preparing for an event.  Many of our membership are former military.

The retreat includes a small medical clinic as our membership includes several doctors,  a RN and an EMT. We are prepared for many medical emergencies or situations.

In addition to the medial staff listed above, our members also include several electrical engineers, an auto mechanic, a teacher, a competition shooter/fisherman, a seamstress, contractor, a former SWAT member and trained aviation mechanic and assembler. We have formed teams to address security/weaponry, medical care, food production, food preparation, communications, construction and energy.  Each team has a Team Leader and organizational charter.

Our motto is: Plan…Prepare…Practice.   

Our three-person Leadership Team sets executive policies and provides operational day-to-day decisions.  Issues that involve long-term implications or significant allocation of resources are bought before the group for discussion and input.  We do not run our organization like a commune or home owners association —but more like a corporate or quasi-military organization.  If you are looking for a pure democracy with extended deliberations and a vote on everything while progress is measured at a snail’s pace… pass us by.  If you are looking for a group to join that you can maintain a passive involvement, store food with your “name on the list” for “when the balloon goes up”… we are not the group for you.  We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

  • Operational facilities and extensive sustainable survival provisions maintained in a high state of readiness with the services of a full-time caretaker and group projects conducted at regular meetings.
  • Personal and group training in sustainable living skills (gardening, livestock, construction, food preservation/preparation), operational security / defensive skills, and medical/TCCC (tactical combat casualty care) training.
  • Solid relationships between members based on trust, competence, and contributions to the group over an extended period of time. Everyone in the community contributes from their resources and skill sets to make us a stronger group.

We hold monthly Gatherings which are also Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend every month. During a typical weekend we conduct numerous training sessions and defense simulations. Firearms and security training is part of every session and members are encouraged to seek out individual firearms training as well.  These workshops include working on developing the retreat as well as developing our skill sets. We have taken several of our members to other homesteading skill training programs in other parts of the state to improve homesteading skills. We have a 360+ page operations manual to support our members.

We also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol that has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts. We have a 25-meter and 100-meter pistol and rifle range and provide training in basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use at every Gathering.  We have several trained instructors.  We also have an extensive CCTV camera system for surveillance with several monitoring stations. We take our security seriously.  After all, if you can’t defend it…it is not yours to keep.  Ours is defensible.

Additional training topics we have presented have included foot patrolling techniques, first aid and trauma medical care, compass reading and orienting, gardening, battery storage, food packaging, water purification, alternative energy devices, running & gunning, cheese sealing, EMP protection, herbs and homeopathy, essential oils, sanitation, candle making, operating earth moving equipment, solar energy, slaughtering and dressing of domestic livestock, and survival skills, etc.

We have accommodation cabins, RV spaces, a medical clinic, 2 laundry rooms, a well-house, a 3-room bath house with showers and laundry facilities, community center, provisions storage area, commercial kitchen and communications center/operations room. We have a large amount of stored water, solar energy, propane supply and wood burning as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include multi-layer nesting of all electronics within Faraday Cages.

We have installed a four-stage air filtration unit (with large bank of deep-cycle marine batteries) for our fallout shelter that can remove 99.99% of the impurities in the event of a NBC or fallout event. Every member has to have a functioning gas mask and fresh filter.  Our fallout shelter is self-contained and able to sustain the community members for weeks, if needed. We also have calibrated radiation monitoring equipment, dosimeters and hazmat suits for clean-up and outside monitoring.

To support our communications center, 4-5 of our members have Ham licenses.  Our communications center will monitor radio traffic and stay connected with a network of other ham operators when the event occurs. We also have our own internal switchboard system with hard-wired phone system.  As a precaution, we have duplicate equipment for everything.

The governance bodies are: an Ops Leader, Assistant Ops Leader, a Leadership Team and a Community Council (made of adult members).

Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) at $250/month to pay for on-site caretaker/security personnel and utilities.  We all share in the development of the community through work every monthly Gathering. We don’t occupy the retreat until an event has occurred. Our members can also use the property for R&R to enjoy hunting, fishing, relaxing as we are surrounded by a large area with plentiful game.  We do have a one-time membership fee that is non-refundable. We have one cabin available as well as a several RV spaces (RV has full range of sewer, water and power hook-ups).

We are looking for capable and willing folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as energy (solar, etc.) patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, hunting, etc. We are also looking for additional skills to add to our mix.  No anti-government types or racists.  We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America.

Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and a background and criminal check.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types).  We are not “Bible-thumpers” but have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs.

We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application.

The retreat is ready to be occupied by members at a moment’s notice. We keep the candle burning 24/7.  You could be one of those able to flee the perils of the decline of social order for the security of a small well-trained, organized, and prepared community.  How important is your family’s welfare and security? What are their lives worth to you?  Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones when everything turns upside down. It is like owning an insurance policy you never want collected or that spare tire you keep in your trunk.

Don’t be caught in your house as the armed gangs are going door-to-door pillaging.    Don’t wait too late wishing that you had a secure and organized bug-out location to escape the dangerous world that awaits us.

We have been told by several TV production companies that have approached us for filming that we are one of the most organized groups they have come across.  Then why haven’t you seen us on TV?  It is simple…our OpSec and obscurity is far more important than ‘15 minutes of fame.’  We are preppers–not food hoarders or entertainers.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today. Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com to request an application and list of further requirements.  We are serious—are you?

can you imagine in just one hour your world changes?  Just off our coast something happens to cause the greatest tidal wave man has ever seen.  If you live any with 100 miles you’ll have to time all will be gone. If you live with 200 miles you’ll be on the run, The roads will be jammed, people fighting for the last bit of food and water on the shelves. Shortly the effect is felt across the entire nation.The word from very reliable sources say that 6,000 retail stores will be closing this year. Other top scientist warn of a 2.5 mile comet hitting the earth. Jade Helm is not in all those western states for nothing. This is no joke! I was there to see how things go down in a major disaster. When Katrina hit everyone who lived on the coast had their lives changed forever. Violence was everywhere, gunshots in the night warning of looters. That was Nothing, 911 was nothing compared to what is about to happen.

There is a group of people Christians from the southeast who have formed, “The Southeastern Christian Preppers Retreat”. It will be a place of safety in the mountains where you are invited to live in community. The land has river frontage, room for your own small survival cabin, hunting, fishing, secluded from the danger below.

Currently, we are working on a nuclear shelter for protection. We are only taking a small number of people for now. We need your help financially, and labor. in exchange you’ll have your own place of safety to bug out to or live year round. do your homework and see if I am telling you the truth about the coming days, and then join us to get this work done. truefaith (at) jesusanswers (dot) com

this is for everybody in Fl, Ga, SC, NC, Tenn, Ky and Va.  Please understand! it is worse than you think

I am an Army Infantry vet and although I am fairly new to this “prepping” thing, I do see the need for it, just like I see the value in the whole “strength in numbers” thing too.
So…if you are ex-military, law enforcement, or have other useful training, knowledge or resources to contribute, please email me at warhorsing [at] gmail [dot] com. I would like to start/join a group in the area I work and live, cause if your like me, you have a life a job, possibly kids, but if your on this site, you know that “life” will probably not remain as we know it for too much longer. So I hope to start or at least join a no-nonsense core group of trustworthy individuals who still retain strong morals, and will take this venture as seriously as I intend to.

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.

Eastern NC Preppers (ENP) has been in existence for over 3 years. This group has gone on longer than a number of other groups. I believe this is due to the two rules of the group– no politics and no religion. To date, over 250 people have attended a meeting or asked for information. Some of those people have been to more than one meeting and have made connections due to Eastern NC Preppers.

Over time, I have seen changes to the group–to group dynamics and to myself. After deep thought and observation, I have decided to disband the ENP as of December 2015. October 10, 2015 will be the final ENP meeting. The 2 major reasons are as follows:

1. I believe the group, as a whole, is failing the 3 objectives originally set for the group. This failure is not the fault of the group and it’s not my fault, but a combo of all the above with random flukes. There are fundamental flaws that cannot be fixed within the existing group structure and rather than waste your time and my time, I would rather disband the group and possibly start over with a new group, new rules, new ideas and objectives.

2. I no longer agree with the term “prepper”, IMHO the term “prepper” has been overused, misused and has too much attached stigma. I believe the same for the terms self-reliant, survivalist, militia, retreater and even homesteader. I believe the prepper movement is suffering because of this fact. I intend on starting not a revolution of the return to the ways and methods of our ancestors to prepare for the present and future grid down events but an evolution. I am not a prepper, survivalist, retreater or homestead. I am a rooter; I am returning to the root of all things which makes all humans great– To be a hunter. To be a gatherer. To be a fisherman. To be a farmer. –I want to bond and form kinships to grow communities, not around things, but around helping each other live without having to depend on others. Self-reliance, internal worth, responsibility, thinking outside the box, questioning the order of things and healthy debates are all skills that put our species on top of the food chain. These skills are quickly being lost in exchange for dependency—passing the buck, letting people think for us and our unwillingness to allow or consider other viewpoints. I am a rooter; I am returning to the root of all things. My ultimate desire is to be reliant on myself; to be true to the core of my being–building up an independent community. We, as a species, are quickly becoming victims of our own success. We have entered into bondage with that success and that success will be our downfall.

At a future date I will email a offer and requirements if anyone wishes to take over the Eastern NC Preppers, the easternncprepper.com domain name and the easternncprepper [at] gmail [dot] com email address. If no one steps up then if someone should want to afterwards my stance is no, no and hell no. I am strongly opposed to anyone using the group’s name for there own purposes at any point after I make the offer, which will have a limited window of opportunity.

Here is the timeline of the group’s end:

June 2015 – Talesfromaprepper.com will no longer be owned by me, if you wish to purchase this domain I plan on putting it up for sale for $50 firm. It will be replaced by the domain backroads2root.com. This domain more accurately reflects my changed perspective.

July 2015 – Everyone in the group will find out at the meeting about the disbanding of ENP which will also include a public message to all prepper websites that associate with ENP. All small groups will become independent at this point

October 2015 – Last group meeting. No topics will be talked about just a last mingle and burial of the group. All information about the group will be archived on the backroads2root.com blog. And not directly accessible.

December 2015 – I will close the email account easternncprepper [at] gmail [dot] com
December 2015- ENP Facebook page will be deactivated.

May 2016 – The domain registration for easternncprepper.com will not be renewed and allowed to expire.

Finally 3 things:

1. The ENP is going away and their may not be a group of my creation taking its place. However that does not mean I do not wish to keep in contact with people or help them in their prepper path.

2. If I do start another group it will be a fresh start with stricter guideline and admittance to the group. This means no one gets a free pass into the new group if there is one. There will be questionnaires and interviews as well as clearly defined commitments to the group.

3. I will still advertise meetings of other prepper groups and offer advice about leadership and problems in the group if asked.

Any comments, questions or concerns please let me know.

Hi, I am looking for a group in the Wake/Johnston co area of North Carolina. I am 34 and my wife is 28, we have 3 children from 3 to 8 yrs old. We are moving back to the area from the coast and while I’m here my family will be coming as soon as we sell our home. I have 20 years in the automotive field and metal fabricating, own tons of tools and I’m an avid off road enthusiast. As a family we camp, wheel, and everyone in the family shoots except my 3 yr old (2 more years for him). We are Christian and while we respect the views of others we expect ours to be respected as well. We grow and can a lot of our food and we are looking for property that would be conducive to an off grid mini-farm with livestock. We would like to either (preferably) Join a group of like minded people to help learn and prep or (second option) start a group of our own. As far as the preps I own that can be discussed off line as well as other details. Feel free to email me at h [dot] ianprice [at] gmail [dot] com to respond, subject: prepper

Thanks and have a great day!

We are looking for a group of like minded families or individuals to form a Mutual Assistance Group (MAG) in the North Georgia Mountains.

Are you looking to become self-sufficient? Do you realize that you need a community to truly be “self-sufficient”?

I am working towards forming a self-sufficient community in the North Georgia Mountains.  You can live there part time, full time or use it as a weekend get-a-way while we develop the self-sufficient community.  I truly want this to be a dual use land in that it can be used during good times, and will save our lives in the event of bad (SHTF).

We need an initial 10 individuals or families to invest $50,000 each to purchase the property to build our community.  Each person will have property rights for their own portion of the property.

I am an experienced leader and organizer.  I have a military and law enforcement background – plus I am a mom and real estate agent.

We will be forming a Mutual Assistance Group (MAG) and a mini-farm to produce our own food, power, security, etc…

Sixty year old 30 years SOG, JSOG, & Black Ops experience has small farm on 157,000 Acres of federal land – Southern Appalachia. Not looking to save hundreds, just maybe a few like minded people perhaps. I am disabled and need help gardening, canning, cutting wood,  building, cooking, and general preparedness planning and drills. This summer I need help digging a new root cellar. I am also making a non  GMO seed bank. I have a home, access to another home, possibly also a log cabin as well. Water comes from a spring.

Not interested in lazy people, know it alls, smokers, druggies, crazies, or scam artists. Peace, love, and joy has its place, and hippie types would be considered as long as they understand that I am old code and carry a gun. My land, my rules. Not a democracy but a guy that needs help with an already working game plan and is willing to share his knowledge, time, and preps in exchange. Single or family considered.

Will arrange a meet at neutral location with very interested parties. Could use a good electric person.

I’m building a full Prepper community, I have land in the Hanover county area of New Hampshire about 25-30 acres with a well, as well as several dead drop locations on the eastern coast of the US available goal is to make room for between 75-100 people a group that will not only survive but thrive. project will take a few years and stages including group training. this is an invitation extended towards existing prepper groups and individuals alike. About me I am young just 23 my wife 19 and we have 2 kids. I can cook as a trade I am also no stranger to combat and I can use a firearm at an intermediate level and a blade at an expert level. Though with some exception I’m self trained in Firearms, Hunting, Explosives, Trapping,and Smelting.

  • Seriousness, I look at this as a future possibility it could mean survival for my family or more than just them I DON’T think of this as a game or something to do in spare time.

Imagination, prepping for the end brings about what communities will arise at the end new traditions and rituals made old ones lost imagination could be a formidable weapon or a moral raiser be open to new ideas.
