Long-time Lancaster County residents have always prided themselves on self-reliance, freedom, personal responsibility, and living close to the land. We’ve had an influx of libtards from Philly and its suburbs who want to live a more idyllic life (but immediately start to whine and complain that we need to have more regulations to make the place like the one they just left), but we still have a large population of “Prepper-types”. Many of us have been preppers all our lives, we just didn’t know there was a name for it. Most of us either grew up on or near farming, and some of us still do.
We have a nice sized group in Lancaster County. Many families. Almost all are conservative (leaning Libertarian), Christian (and a few Jews), gun owners, who love their freedom, their families, and who are very nervous about the future whether it be natural disasters, economic disasters, government disasters, or terrorist actions. We get together, sometimes as a whole group, often in smaller groups, and exchange information, expertise, and ideas. We often buy in bulk together. learn skills together, and plan how we can mutually assist each other in the event of an emergency.
Sometime in the middle of April we will be attending (and some are presenting) a 3 hour seminar in Lancaster on radio communications (Ham, CB, MURS). Probably will be a Saturday morning. I believe the cost will be about $15 per person. If you’re interested, let me know and I will forward details as they become available.
If you’re looking to connect with a group, or find out more about us, let me know. If you’re setting up “waypoints” on a bug-out route, we can provide safe places to stay/camp. While we will exercise Christian charity if we are able, don’t count on us for food. We will help fellow preppers as we are able if we know them in advance and feel comfortable with them. If you’re some sort of Nazi, or a ‘Take Down the Government’ type, or want us to all abide by your religious beliefs, or are some wayfaring hipster-dufus singing ‘Kumbayah’, …..pass on by. We’re not compatible. If you think the Freemasons are ruling the world or wear a tin-foil hat because the Bilderburg Triumvirate Rosicrucians are shooting photon beams at your head, …..pass on by. If you are a Soldier-of-Fortune I-never-served-in-the-military-but-I’m-a-killer type who wears camo everyday, …..contact somebody else.
If you’re ex-military, or current military, or LEO, ….God bless you, and welcome. If you’re elderly, have a disability, or have a family member that fits in to that group ……welcome. We have a wide range of professions like small business owners, auto technicians, welders, a blacksmith, lawyers, doctors, tow truck drivers, computer eggheads (although somewhat surprisingly, they are excellent shooters for some reason), secretaries, painters, plumbers, nurses, housewives, mothers, and grandmothers.
I hope to hear from some of you.
