Hi, My name is Renee. I am a 24 female nursing student. I live in Louisiana.I have 2 sons. I am new to prepping and knowing that anything can happen is what helped me decide to start prepping.  So, like any parent I would like to have a safe place for my family just in case SHTF.

I am looking to start a prepping group/community. I would like to have a large mixed group of open minded people from all walks of life.  Your race, age, religion, material status, family size or where you live will not matter. As long as you can offer a skill or two you will be welcome. and for those who don’t have skills you must be willing to learn. I would require a background check from your local sheriffs office, I’m not trying to get all in your business. I’m just trying to make sure everyone would be safe.  If you would like to explain anything you will get a chance to do so.

I would like to buy some land to build a bug out community. i am currently designing an above ground community and an underground retreat. I have started looking at some land in the Midwest states. I figured that would be the safest place in any SHTF scenario. I do like the land in Missouri.

If you are looking to join and you have land and you would like it to be used let me know.

I know most people don’t want a large group for various reasons. I figure we are all adults and are we are all trying to do the same thing ( have a safe place). so why not work together. It would hurt to have a lot of skills in one group. Plus if we did have to go underground we would need a lot of different people for social reasons.

So if you are interested in this, email me at ladavianw [at] icloud [dot] com

I am looking to either organize or join a survival/prepper community in Southeastern Ohio.  I have resources and skills to bring to a group.  Currently living outside Columbus, but I am looking at rural acreage in the vicinity of Perry County.  I believe time is short and I would like to be complete by the end of the summer.  Please respond if you are serious about taking the next step.

obviously the clock is ticking on the grand scheme of things. Ive talked to some of you. And have had proposals from others so here’s my two cents.

. strength in numbers is something we have all heard over and over and over……so why is everyone so wishy washy about things whether its teaming up, mag, or what have you? Ive had plenty of folks contact me around my area only to disappear after a short while. Ive also had some people have ridiculous prerequisites to join a group. Not everyone has unlimited resources to acquire 8,000$ worth of food for each member of their family. So should good people with plenty of knowledge, skills, and a good amount of supplies not be considered? Basically my point is lets get some chatter going. There’s plenty of us around each other. Time to s#*&t or get off the pot.

I am in Southeastern Ohio and I am new on here. Looking to meet like-minded people.

Basically I have a general knowledge in a lot of survival/prepping skill sets. I also offer a good deal of knowledge on construction, farming, hunting, fishing, trapping and maintenance. I am wanting to start my own group here on Ohio.

I have been reading and researching different groups and also different survival communities.

Looking to meet new people and form new friendships. Basically looking to network with others and other groups, exchanging ideas, beliefs,  knowledge and setting up a communications network. Always looking for new members. Strength is in numbers we all know that. These way its going in the world today….who knows when the SHTF is going to happen.

Contact me anytime

I’m interested in finding some fellow preppers in Southeastern Ohio or surrounding areas. I believe that we all have to be ready for anything.  Not only for ourselves but also for our families.  If your a prepper or interested in survival please contact me.

I know that we as preppers are being watch, but we as citizens are being watched as well. Too much is going on now not to think about what is coming. We all have to be ready….ready for anything.

So if your interested contact me. I would love to hear from you.

Have a great day..

22 Year old male living in Cleveland/Lake County area.  Looking for others to compare notes/ideas, work together, maybe form a group, and perhaps most importantly learn from others.  Seems that all my prepared friends have moved out of state this year.  Been preparing for about a year now any would love fresh ideas strategies etc…  Should be self sufficient for six months though being an apartment dweller there are limitations in implementing sustainable long term strategies and dealing with eventual resupply issues.  Lets talk.

As the name implies I like pasta…

Peace to all. We just moved outside of Athens, OH and in search of a preppers group. There are 5 of us and ages range from 9 to 60. 3 of us have some weapons training and 3 of us have knowledge on edible plants as well as the healing properties of plants. We are in the process of saving to buy a small piece of land to take our prepping to the next level. I’m nervous about reaching out because I know everything we do is being watched but because of the craziness of the world today I feel it’s worth the risk. I should not have to raise my son in a world like this but instead of bitching about it, I decided to do something about it. Thank you.

We are a young couple in central ohio looking to escape the rat race and start a self sufficient lifestyle together.It whould be ideal If we could work for a homesteader and continue to learn the skils we need to live the rustic life. But that is a hard thing to come by and I have only heard of a few lucky people who have ben able to be mentored by sucessful homesteaders.
So this is us reaching out for a hand, or to give a hand to you.
If you need a someone to do some hard work in exchange for an education in homesteading.
We want to start our lifes jorney somewhere in the nortwest but we are willing to drop everything and relocate anywhere in the great united states.
We are happy with minimal housing (no electricity nessary). The opertuneity to hunt and trap to provide for ourselves a minimal income for nessities is greatly aprecated. Most everything else is negotiable.

I am looking for some like-minded people in the Lancaster area in Ohio.

I’ll admit, I was born and raised a city boy…I grew up on the Jersey Shore but I have been in Ohio for the last 5 years…I’ve since discovered the beauty of camping/outdoors and have also become a prepper in the last couple years.

I have my own guns and equipment, but I am looking for people who are willing to work with me and we can help each other increase our survival skills.

Sadly, I don’t have any land or I would start my own prepping group, but I would be more than willing to join an existing one…Like I said, I don’t have the most experience in the outdoors, but I am trustworthy, a quick learner, and still have my basic human instincts….and I’d say that is more than most people have these days.

Drop me an email and let me know if anyone has any information for me please

I am 41 with a wife (32) and 3 kids (3months, 5, 8). We all know there is strength in numbers. We don’t have alot of money so our preps aren’t vast. We are starting to freeze dry food for long storage. We have supplies for water filtration and starting our medicine stockpile which includes antibiotics and natural herb medicines. I have good knowledge of edible plants and plant I.d. As well as medicinal herb usage and dosage. A vast knowledge of wilderness survival and construction of anything with any supplies. A good knowledge of weapons although we do not own any….. .yet. That’s in the plans. We live in a place that I don’t feel will be safe so id rather not bug in. I am also building my knowledge of solar power and at the moment have a solar powered 12volt battery charger with power inverter. I feel I would be a great asset to any self sustaining community.

Is anyone from Central Ohio planning to attend? This is the first show here and I’m not sure what to expect, I’ll check out some seminars if they seem worthwhile and of course cruise around and check out the vendors. I’m not sure if this would be a good place to possibly meet others from the Central Ohio area, the logistics may not work if folks are checking things out for themselves and possibly sitting thru seminars. I’m just throwing this out there, perhaps others will have ideas or input we can toss around. For sure I’d want to keep things a bit low-key, how would anyone know who’s who? Time to meet, where to meet? All of this is an unknown since this is a new show in a building I doubt I’ve ever been in. Again I’m just tossing this out there. If anyone has any input or would like to discuss it I can be reached here.   ggea0290 [at] yahoo [dot] com        mention SS in your email. Everyone take care.
