Living in Springfield oh and am interested in forming a group. I have been prepping for 2 yrs. and gave serious thought to bunkering in. I have since come to realize that bunkering in might not be the way to go. If anyone in the area is like minded and wants to meet and swap ideas. I can be reached at spidey718(at) g mail (dot) com.

Hello… I’m new to this, but have always had an interest and now a desire. If anyone has any tips, I’d greatly appreciate it. I’m in southeast ohio and looking for any other people sharing the same desire!
Sorta newbie, sorta not. Military with 1 Saudi Arabia tour. Practicing multiple martial arts for 20 years. Enthusiastic “car camper” (who doesn’t love luxury). The Mrs. has medical experience and license (RT), also some knowledge of herbs. Gardening, Water collection/filtration, and all aspects of offense/defense. Any one like minded in the area and want to chat?
We have a well established group of good decent people and an excellent retreat site. We have a medical team including a doctor and a nurse but we need someone who can go out with the tactical team to be our first responder out there with us. We have a very sweet deal for you and your family if you qualify. You’ll have a hard time finding a safer environment, better people or a better retreat site. You will be extensively vetted including a background check and will need to be prepped or get prepped up.
If interested contact me at…

Looking for like minded people to talk to and share Ideas with. 53 married, ex-military and have ideas to share.
New to site. Anyone from the cincinnati area??
Anyone live near Parma, Ohio? If so do you have an idea of where you would go if you had to bug out? I’ve been tying to come up with the best direction to head, keeping in mind there may be hundreds or even thousands of people trying to get out too. I think I would try to get as far south as I could. Lot’s of wooded land in southern Ohio. Any feedback or ideas will be much appreciated.
I live near Twinsburg. My family and I began preparing about 3 years ago. Are there any people out there would would be interested in forming a meetup group. We could exchange ideas, learn skills from each other, and form a network of like minded individuals. Please respond here with your email and you can also email me at: dkwjunk [at] gmail .
Hello fellow preppers my name is Amber Finnegan and i am a beginner prepper
I am 19 years of age and i am looking for possibly a mentor or group of preppers to help me learn to become a great survivalist and prepper
I am a avid fisher and i am learning to hunt small game i do not own any firearms but i am going to be getting a bow soon and i will practice that daily to become a good hunter to survive and provide for my friends and family during a survival situation please message me if you are interested in chatting with a fellow prepper!
If you want to review my emergency medical credentials/ training/ experience, see my profile. It speaks for itself. I have been preparing for SHTF for over 6 years and have a beautiful 3.5 y/o daughter who I Love more than life itself. She’s the only reason I’m still here in Columbus and not already in Alaska- considering what I now know, maybe that’s for the best. I am seeking to connect with a group of brothers and sisters who are awake and have made provisions for what’s coming. I have plenty to offer in terms of skill sets and personality. I’ve never put myself out like this, but frankly there is barely any time left now, and I have to make a move if I want my daughter to have a chance of making it thru the shitstorm coming rapidly down the pipe. If you are serious about hoping for a future, care about preserving as much of your humanity as will be possible (I am a realist) and have been preparing- please feel free to contact me. I am not a religious man, but I talk to the Creator everyday and , for better or worse, I am a sheepdog at heart. I’m glad I found this site. Good luck to you all. I hope to one day see you on the other side. Thanks
Hello everyone Im new here and would like to introduce myself, my name is Anthony and Im the founder of Ryden Survival.

If you would happen to have any questions or if you would be interested in partaking on this new adventure please feel free to message me or comment for more information.
Thank you for taking the time to read this and have a nice day
Hello I’m looking for any peppers in the Cleveland area. I’m a young, healthy, smart guy who is serious about the situation upon us. I can do my part to help and i will in every situation. Read my profile if you would like to know more about me
I am both looking for other like-minded people in the Northeast Ohio/Cleveland region who are interested in prepping just to talk to and to possible start up some kind of MeetUp group (whether through the app or not). I have seen that there are a number of people interested, but I’m just trying to gauge whether there might be some more serious people people out there before spending the monthly fee, and potentially getting random or simply curious people.
I, myself, am a longtime researcher and writer. I am currently working on a SHTF fiction series, as well as a couple other projects. I have studied and practiced many skills in regards to preparedness, but would love to get a diverse group of people together to meet up and cross-train, discuss, practice, and learn new skills. If this leads to people forming more permanent bonds, that would obviously be a plus for everyone. Most importantly, though, I would like to try and help get people in the area who are interested in any forms of preparedness working together and learning from each other.
If you have any interest or thoughts on this, feel free to respond here. Signup is free, so I won’t just give my email out on a Google searchable post… But if you leave yours, I will certainly get back to you.
Looking for serious minded people to form a preppers group in springfield, oh and surrounding area.
Contact at spidey718 at gmail dot com.
Where do you want to be when the SHTF.
Looking for others interested in moving there and looking to possibly buy or rent a little land to live over quite a long period of time.
May travel the western USA first unless we find something quick, before the snow falls. Want to move by end of Sept. or Early Oct.
Anyone interested that would like help, or would like to help, would be greatly appreciated and accepted!
I’m a member of SOHIO Southern Ohio Outdoorsman were a survivalist/prepper group in southern Ohio you meet, hols meetings and classes and learn from each other we looking for new members to join our family if your interested PM me
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!

Greetings to all
Look for Preppers/Survivalist in the Hillsdale County Michigan area (NW part). Closer the better. NW Ohio will do also.
Looking for like-minded people to do………………..what Preppers and Survivalist do. I think it would be wise to do these things together.
That is “Before” the SHTF.
People in the Medical and IT field most welcome. Also, “Old school mechanics”
My talents are in the construction field, i’e’ concrete, carpentry, and a little bit of everything else. Also small arms repair and instructor. this was one of my military occupations.
My contact info
Looking for preppers and preppers with kids in the Troy area. We are new to the area and if SHTF or it’s TEOTWAWKI we need to know the best area of Troy to run to hide until it would be safe to leave the area if needed. Feel free to email me
Brittandkailee [at] gmail [dot] com
Looking for like minded people in area.
Hi all-my name is robert and i am new to the site. I am hoping to find like minded people that we are in very perilous times and one has to be prepared.
The kind of people i’m looking for would have priorities like this
I personally believe in the creator but i don’t care if you do or don’t. I will relocate for the right group of people. I am pretty new to prepping but have dedicated my life to getting prepared. I am looking for serious preppers who have good morals and ethics. If anything i said interest you just leave your email in the comments.
I have plumbing and some survival skills looking to join a group. Im in the northeaster part of ohio
We have an awesome retreat site, and an excellent group of good Christian people. We are all prepped up with everything you can imagine and a few things you can’t. We’re not weirdos and don’t have an agenda other than the safety of our loved ones and each other. The one skill set we are missing is in the medical field. We’d entertain a doctor, nurse, paramedic, corpsman or anyone with the right medical training and skills. We have member families from Indiana and Ohio as well as Michigan. There is a vetting process and requirements so contact me directly with any questions.

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.
As a Bible believing Christian I feel like everyday is a blessing! I find myself thanking God for laughter on playgrounds and hugging my kids tighter, because the world as we know it is fading fast. I’m a Texan, who was planning my return trip home while moving here to Kentucky. My entire family (except me & kiddos) is in Texas along with all our prepping, because that’s plan A! Get back! But, if SHTF I won’t be able to get that far with 4 kids in tow. (14 & 10 big healthy boys and 4 yo twin girls). We are prepped to bounce– just need options! If it is close to us (Louisville)– we will work!! Especially my sons… Until SHTF we can contribute around school schedules. Man of the house is an electrical engineer. My degree is in Theatre, so I can act like whatever role needs to be filled! Also, as a theatre grad I learned to sew, build, paint, even weld! We created things! That’s what I do. Also teach. I also was taught the Bible and prophesies since birth from my father who was a pastor, passed away in 2007 (cancer).
Feeling anxious these days, so prepper friends might help me not feel so alone.

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.
