Hi everyone I live in Florida and have been seeking out an established group who wouldn’t mind that my three daughters, granddaughter and myself join a well organized, established group. I would prefer a place in Tennessee away from large towns. Our plan is in action except for a place to meet and stay. Two of daughters would travel from Missouri and one daughter, granddaughter and myself from Florida. I have a mega gold mine of saved heirloom seeds and a dedicated gardener. I am a naturalist and survivalist and need somewhere for my family to go. Please help me or direct me to the right place. Thank you for listening.
Looking for preppers in Central California (Merced area). Would love to find like-minded people to connect and learn from.
just want to talk to like minded people in our area. share idea’s and info for our area
Looking for anyone to exchange ideas and skills with in the desert southwest. Possible MAG formation among things to discuss. We can’t do it alone.
I’m trying to get a bunker biult in the Folsom El Dorado Hills area, and it’s going to be massive. Big enough for 240 people. The project goal is to develop an underground shelter system to protect 240 people from Nuclear, Biological, and Chemical effects and provide a long term living environment during a time when the general population may be suffering severely from direct weapon effects and/or starvation and lack of common community services due to a lack of electricity as a result of a high altitude EMP attack, severe earthquakes, biological attack, gamma ray bursts, or direct local attacks. The structure is comprived of three individuel bunkers. Two of the three bunkers (149,618 ft3 each) serve as the residential or housing sector with shops, doctor’s office, dentist office, city hall, fire department, communications room, health spa, restaurant etc. on the main floor with condos of various sizes on the second floor. Main floor has 7,748 ft2 and approximately 3,000 ft2 on the second floor depending on the floor plan.
The third bunker (149,618 ft3) will serve as the service structure housing 4 milk cows, 40 chickens, 4 generators, grain silos, farm tractor, vehicles on the main floor and personnel food storage, animals feed, hay, etc. on the second story. Main floor has 7,748 ft2 and approximately 3,000 ft2 on the second floor. This community will provide 1,870 ft3/shelterist compared to conventional houses that supply 1,500 to 2,000 ft3/person. This UNDERGROUND COMMUNITY is designed to provide a relatively normal life style for approximately 3 years without exiting the underground community while operating off the grid and completely independent of any local community services.
The company that would be hierd out to construct the complex would be RADIUS ENGINEERING, and it would tahe 4 months to construct.
My fiance and I are moving to Montana around the end of the month. We will be in the Upper Missouri Breaks south of Chinook,MT. I am a former Force Recon Marine (39 yrs old). My fiance is a former police officer (43yrs old). We will be building a small off grid cabin and possibly starting a prepper community/group. For the past several years I have worked in the agriculture field. We are experienced in several different areas including weapons/tactics and gardening and several in between. If you are interested in getting together, I would like to hear from you.. We are dropping EVERYTHING here in Florida and headed to Montana. The way things are going and from what my friends and family in the government is telling me. It time to get out of town… Send me an email at prepconsultant [at] yahoo [dot] com if you want to chat..
I prep lightly and I am moving SouthWest Georgia soon and will become more involved. I know the government is not dependable. Anyway I was looking for preppers to get to know and see if we had common interest in Georgia. Anywhere within an hour of the city is cool with me. It just seems preppers are scarce but hopefully someone will reach out. Im 39 with a family….. Hope to hear from someone soon….

Hey folks. Living in Tasmania and have been a prepper for just over a year now. I have always had an interest in permaculture and survival skills both outdoors and urban. I’m looking for anyone who lives in Tasmania who is a prepper or even is into self sustainability, ie preserving food, aquaponics, organic gardening, tanning hides, bushcraft ect. Would love to hear from you even if your not from Tassie.
I have been very interested in finding a group of like- minded people, who are preparing themselves to survive after a major event or social breakdown. I’m a novice prepper, living in Westmoreland coutny, i’m learning more and more everyday. If you have any information on groups, or any survival suggestions for me such as food, shelter, bugout readiness, or any other tips, please share.
Hello from Texas, College Station area. Anybody close by?
Trying to establish comm links with N Az groups or interested folks…
We are going to be hosting a “Prep Day” on May 18th beginning at 11:00 am.
This will be held at 7631 Clinton Hwy Powell TN (Overdrive Krav Maga) in the dollar general plaza. Should be able to fit in about a hundred inside and we will be utilizing the outdoor space as well.
This will be a great opportunity for the people in the Knoxville area to network with one another.
We’ll start off with an informal meet and greet and then get rolling with the speakers and demo’s where appropriate.
This will last for several hours and everyone (whether you live in Knox or not) should feel welcome to come and go as you please.
* We have a water purification expert that will be speaking
* A Hand to Hand combat expert speaking and providing demonstrations dealing with and without modern weapons (guns,knives etc.)
There are other SME’s lined up just awaiting verification. (food prep, medical and so on)
Hot dogs and drinks will be available as well.
I encourage you to bring along any notes, gear, tips you would like to share during our breaks and meet and greet times.
Bring along any camping chairs you have as well
Looking for Preppers in Plano,TX to meet up with and share ideas, etc.
Have you asked yourself these questions lately?
1. Can I really provide security for my family if there is a major event?
2. Can I truly secure my home as a Bug-in-Location against potential intrusion?
3. Does my family have the skills to grow our own foods to replace what we have stored after we have consumed it?
4. Do we really have the other skills and knowledge to survive post-event?
5. Is my family really ready for this level of emergency?
6. Would it make more sense to affiliate with a group of similar-minded folks who are organized and prepared for such an event? Is there safety in numbers? Are there skills in numbers?
We are an 11-family prepper retreat located in central North Carolina near Virginia. Our membership comes from Northern Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. We don’t live there–we just prepare it for the day we know we will have to occupy it.
The retreat has a deep well, a pond and a fast flowing creek surrounded by many acres of state protected hunting land. Deer, wild turkey and rabbit are abundant.
We all believe that there is safety in numbers and skills in those numbers as well. We feel it is more critical to store and prepare together than risk an isolated effort. We believe there is a strong likelihood that a major event will occur within the next calendar year or two and value our families’ safety enough to collaborate in preparing for that event. .
I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an infantry unit (173rd Airborne) 1969-70 as part of five years in the US Army. I have organized a retreat community made up of a retired Special Forces officer, several retired naval officers, several former Army, Navy, Air Force and Marine vets.
The retreat includes a medical clinic with a doctor, a physician’s assistant, two RNs, chiropractor, and a pharmacist. The members also include two electrical engineers, two mechanical engineers, a mechanic, a teacher, security systems company owner, a homesteader and trained beekeeper, a couple of tournament shooters and one tournament fisherman. Additional members include a seamstress, construction carpenter, a pilot and IT and systems expert. We have formed teams to address solar power, water/wind power, hunting, food preparation, water purification, recycling, gardening, orchard management, hygiene, armorer, weapons instructor, herbalist, etc. We have six major teams with team captains. We hold two-day Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend a month. 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. Some have taken the tactical combat arms workshops.
I have spoken and will speak several times this year on retreat management. We have a 360+ page operations to support our members. Part of the ops manual is a 60-page security section that has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired Special Forces officers and a current security systems expert.
Our own training topics have included basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use, foot patrolling techniques, gardening, food packaging, alternative energy devices, herbs and homeopathy, sanitation, solar energy, small unit patrol techniques, reloading, and survival skills, etc. We have 8 accommodation cabins, eight RV spaces, a medical clinic, laundry room, well house, a 4-room bath house, well house, community center, provisions storage area, kitchen and commo room. We have solar energy, solar backup generators for water pumps, propane supply and wood burning as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include nesting in Faraday Cages.
We also have our own communications equipment to “stay connected.” Five of our members have successfully completed the Ham Tech License test and two have completed their General license.. We have stored our electronics in Faraday Cages for EMP protection.
The governance bodies are: an Ops Leader, Assistant Ops Leader, a 5-person Planning Council and a Community Council made up of members. We periodically meet via WebEx in a virtual online meeting. All families are required to meet once a month at the retreat for discussion, decision-making, team meetings and work details.
Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) and share in the development of the community through their work. The rent is nominal based on size of the cabin or RV. 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 now have two cabins available.
We are looking for the following skills: plumber, former military ideally with actual combat experience, Ham operator (experienced to help set up communications network), aquaponics, welder, electrician, farmer or serious food grower, or combat engineer-type. We also prefer families with older teens able to help with security. We are looking for able-bodied folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, etc.
Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and a background and criminal check. Each candidate family must have 9 months of food provisions at 2400 calories per day per person with at least a 25% fat content (67g per day). We also have ammo and weapon requirements that if you do not have now could be near impossible to fill in short order due to the availability issues of both.
We are principally Christian but will consider all religions. If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a like-minded group in North Carolina to join for safety and skill development, then ask for an application.
The retreat has a full-time grounds keeper and a full-time caretaker for maintenance and security.
Contact sgtprepper2 [at] gmail [dot] com if you want an application and list of further requirements. We are preppers–not food hoarders. We are serious—are you? Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones.
Me and my prep partner now have a garage and are working on prepping vehicles . We are also doing house preps consultations and teaching your whole family everything from emergancy fire drills to water filtration . The emails have been pouring in by the page full and we hope to be able to meet all the demands …………… the team at The Final Structure
How’s it going preppers. To start off, I don’t spend every moment of every day prepping and I don’t let it run my life so if that is who you are looking for, that’s definitely not me. I’m a normal guy that works, spends time with his family and has plenty of other things on his mind as well. I am on here mainly to meet like-minded individuals and even make friends with people that are like me. If the end happened, what could I bring to the table? Well, I have trained in several martial arts, I have been in the security officer field for 6 years so I know the ins and outs of security, I have bug out bags, endless weaponry and ammo. I am quite the knife collector. That is just who I am and what I’m about. I’m also a pretty laid back guy. I read lots of survival books so that I have a clue what I am doing in the outdoors. I also grew up in the mountains so have spent a lot of time hiking, biking, camping, etc. I’m near San Fran area
Im a Single mum of 8 wonderful children, 7 of them at home,
i started getting the preping bug about 8 – 12 mths ago, started building my food storage, and water, from there i got an interest in building a fallout shelter, which all started when i got to thinking that if SHTF and people got desperate, they would end up stealing food ect from others, sadley some are very greedy and would take everything, leave those poor souls who did prep,with nothing I thought far better to have the bulk of ones stored food some where different,so that if you were robbed of your stocks either while you were in the house,or whilst buggingout, then the loss would not be life threatening for ones family,
from there i thought well if im going to build something for food storage,it might as well be big enough to hold me and the kids in the case of an emergancy, from there i thought well if im doing that i may as well put the extras into the building so that in the instance of war, bombs ect, we might have a chance of survival, lol it is amazing how driven one can be to survive, specially when your kids are involved, so lots of plans for future building underground, will get materials as funds permit, in the mean time we have almost finished our bug out bags, each child has a special load they must carry,to make the whole thing possable, still havent got all the clothes (camo) and shoes (hiking) yet, may attempt to sew (some of) the clothes, we are setting everything up in the yard tomorrow and will be camping outside, from there we plan to do regular hiking adventures in the bush out behind our place,
i love being prepared, it is nice to not be the victim, and my homeschooled children get to enjoy many adventures and life lessons along the way,im also looking to get to know anyone who lives anywhere within the vasinity of Coffs Harbour / Grafton and the surrounding areas, or if you just want to chat and share info, then please contact me, no matter where you are from,
NWOP Meeting Announcement
Date/Time: MAY 18, 2013 @ 11:00AM – ?
Location: Greg’s house
Primary Topic: Solar Oven**
Incase of rain the topic will be Bug-out bags
Meeting overview: The meeting will start by practicing our fire starting skills to make a pot of coffee. While waiting for coffee we’ll take a walk and identify some edible /medicinal plants (reference material will be provided). Once coffee is ready we’ll “dig-in”. The meeting will adjourn with a round table open discussion likes/dislikes this meeting, expectations next meetings, old/new business, etc. Finally anyone wanting to participate in some target practice is welcome to stay. Note you will be responsible for providing your own weapon and bullets. Likewise, since we still live in this world you will be required to sign a liability waiver.
Objective: To construct a Solar Oven from start to finish. A list of needed materials will be provided for those who want to participate in building one. In other words you should leave this meeting with your very own, ready to go Solar Oven. **If no interest is expressed in actually building a solar oven, then the meeting will be “demonstration” only and other cooking devices and types will be included in the discussion. In case of rain the focus will be Bug-out bags. Those who have bags can have them evaluated if they so choose and those without will be given pointers and tips to help create/assembly their own.
Everything above is “SET IN STONE” regarding Date/Time, location, and topic (Solar Oven) – this is real and will be posted on our calendar (please Corinne – I’m clueless!). The rest is more of an example on how we can give a bit more direction and focus to our meetings as well as incorporate practicing and developing our skill sets. In short – that is open for discussion or if you like just indicate so on the group Facebook page and this will be the plan. However, we will need feedback on whether we want to actually build solar ovens or just do a demonstration on them and other types of cooking “devices”. So let us know as soon as possible and we’ll go from there. Deadline for “yeahs” or “nays” will be Thursday, May 2nd, 2013. In other words I’d like to officially post the groups “consensus” by Friday, May 3rd. Until then this will only be posted on facebook and reviewed by the more active members. Again, Corinne if you could update our calendar with the date/time & place it would be greatly appreciated!!!! Ohh, before I forget we would like you all to consider making the 3rd Saturday of every month the official meeting date (time and place to vary). So we’ll need a vote on that too. Thanks all!
The obnoxious control freak – Bert

The purpose of this post is to find out if there is an organized prepper group around Akron-Canton Ohio. We are new to the prepping and would like to find out about local support and cooperation in case of an emergency. There is another couple that would be interested as well.
On Mon, May 6, 2013 @ 6pm @ Houston Co Library on Burdeshaw st, we are hosting Vonda, the qpon qween who will teach extreme couponing and how to stockpile for preps. She will teach on how to extreme coupon at all stores, but specifically publix. We have to have a head count for this due to seating and making sure we have enough hand outs.

Also on Fri, May 10 we are camping for one night at www.landmarkpark.com. see site for details. If you have never been camping or its been a long time, this would be a good soft start to it. Learn how to put up a tent, get familiar with camp gear and items in your bug out bag. We plan to camp out monthly and progressively build up our outdoor survival skills. message me if your plan to attend !
