Like the title says

I am reaching out to any like minded Preppers or Prepper Families in or around East Tennessee.

I am willing to email ideas back and forth to run scenarios by each other. Or meet you in a public place for a cold drink and just shoot the breeze for awhile and bounce ideas off of each other to try to keep you from making mistakes i may have already made or so you can help me to keep from making mistakes you may have already made and learned from. Cause it helps to learn from other peoples mistakes that cost time and money.

Here’s a little about me. I am located in the mountains of East Tennessee 30 minutes from North Carolina and Virginia. We live on a small acreage farm. Where we raise Chickens, Rabbits, Meat Goats and an occasional Hog. My wife is wanting to become a better gardener. My daughter is wanting to work on raising milk goats. We have trail horses. We work hard to prepare for bad situations and emergencies because I am sure trouble is coming and it is going to be bad.

I am an Eagle Scout and Ex-Army Infantry. Came home and served locally in the Tennessee Defense Force. I am a Community Service Minded individual but i won’t let my family be a victim. I am a licensed Tennessee Handgun Permit Instructor. A certified CERT “Community Emergency Response Team”Instructor. I used to be a decent mechanic before they computerized everything. I am a certified Glock Armorer. I am working to learn how to reload. I was certified in CPR and as a First Responder in Tennessee. Working to obtain my Ham License.

Feel free to contact me and we will see where it goes from there.

Take care, Keep your powder dry and Watch your Six.

hello everyone, im new to the site…..i currently have land in east tn that we are working to make a prepper community or bug out location….if anyone is honest and trustworthy and looking to get involved in a community send me a message

I am a teacher looking for a prepper group outside of Houston – outside of Dallas, San Antonio, or Austin (and I’m open to other areas if the right fit). I’ve been seriously considering living permanently in an RV to save money and have a bug-out vehicle. I was raised on a farm and looking to live that simple, joyful life again. I’ve been studying the Bible, watched many documentaries, and read a lot of independent news – all pointing to end times very near, such as an economic collapse and/or major catastrophes. Recently, one quote from Jesus that got my attention is, “Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.” (Rev 16:15)

I interpret that to mean that those of us who are watching for Jesus to come back will see the signs and prepare, thus preventing the unnecessary suffering that comes with not preparing. I think of the danger of being in the cities, FEMA, coastline disasters, flooding in low elevation, being without shelter, clothing, and food if forced to evacuate unexpectedly. So many people tell me not to listen the doom and gloom, to be more optimistic, that I’m creating insecurity this way, that I should buy real estate and make money instead of buying an RV and being a nomad, that we’re going to die anyway, blah blah… I am looking for like-minded people with strong minds, level-headed people, Christians, who will be an extended family to me and my daughter. Please let me know if you’re interested in discussing further, or if you have any advice or thoughts on what I’ve shared, please reply. Thank you.

Warm regards,
Kim

New member of the prepping community looking to join with other survival-oriented people in the southwest area. Currently in NM, able to travel. Own my own weapons and a small gear stockpile. Unable to stockpile any great quantity of food and water due to living space restrictions and lack of funding. Humans are social animals who, despite being *able* to survive alone, function best in groups. I’m just looking for somewhere I can help out.

Skills: decent marksman, moderate first aid experience, several years’ backpacking experience. Former boy scout and ROTC cadet. Employed as a chemistry assistant in an electroplating shop for 4 years. Some minor communications and electrical experience. Helped build 2 houses in the Las Cruces area, know my way around manual labor construction a fair bit.

If anyone in the southwest area has an existing group that could use an extra set of working hands, with a halfway decent brain attached, please let me know.

Looks like I’m in the same boat as a lot of other folks. I’m looking to get involved with a local group. Perhaps even put one together if there isn’t one already established and looking for good people. Local for me is Perry County, Pennsylvania. Please feel free to reach out to me!

hi-

I’m looking to either start an urban preparedness group, or join up with one that already exists, for the purposes of learning and training together, developing plans, sharing information, and finding useful people.

 

I I have some basic skills but I have not been preparing long, but I’m looking to learn as much as I can and help others learn too. I’m resourceful and can fix anything, have some building skills, firearms, minor medical knowledge, in decent shape. Most importantly I come with a strong will to survive and a positive attitude that we can make it through anything if we stay strong and willing.

 

Im not all that fervently religious (though I’m not against religion in any way) and I’m definitely not interested in getting into a fight with the feds–so if those are your main angles, more power to ya but I’m not interested.

 

This is is kind of a shot in the dark. I’m really not expecting there to be any people inside the city of Minneapolis with a preparedness mindset. But you never know.

 

Reply lay on here and we will go from there. Thank you!

Couple expecting a new addition soon is looking for a prepper group to join anywhere in the US that is a good distance away from coastlines. We currently live in Texas but are planning to relocate to upstate NY near the Canadian border in a few months. I’m not particularly crazy about the idea of living that far north where winters are much harsher than what I’m accustomed to but we have a good friend who lives there and she has friends in Canada who may be able to help in a time of crisis in the US, which we both strongly feel will occur sooner than most may think. I’ve known for awhile now that I should be prepping for what is about to take place but haven’t really had the means to do so and have been caught up in distractions that life throws at us all from time to time. We are both on a limited fixed income and neither of us can handle extreme physical labor but their are still many things we are capable of doing at a slower pace than most. Then there are some things we can do at a faster pace like cooking. We have been doing alot of research on survival skills necessary to make it in what we both believe is shortly to begin…the great tribulation that is spoken of in the bible. We have also been researching alternative natural medicines and different styles of durable bug out housing that is cost efficient. We have alot of useful knowledge but with cost of living being so high and our combined incomes being so low it’s very hard for us to obtain property to begin building on or even the other resources needed to start. We are Christians but not affiliated with any type of organized religion and do not wish to be. Our religion is love. Jesus taught love, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness not doctrine. We are looking for a family or small group of folks who already have land they are wanting to work to build a bug out for when SHTF. More than just stockpiling certain items, which we know are necessary, we are interested in obtaining sustainable resources by growing our own fruits and vegetables and having at least a small supply of livestock like chickens for eggs and meat and goats for milk. A fish pond would be awesome too. For us an ideal location for this off the grid bug out camp would be in a well wooded area far from major cities and densely populated areas, and definitely not near any type of military base. A nearby water source is a must as well. We do not wish to join any type of malitia as we do not intend to fight the establishment. This is Gods war not ours and all we seek to do is hide from tyranny and survive as long as possible without being detected. If you own weapons for hunting and protection we are perfectly ok with that. We don’t own any ourselves as of yet but are not opposed to obtaining a few or learning how to use various types of weapons. I feel like I’m writing a novel here so I’m gonna wrap this up. If anyone is interested in having us join them we will definitely be able to help out financially and in many other ways so long as we have a place to reside while preparations are being made. Please contact us ASAP if interested…we fear time is running out. You can contact us via e-mail at clane0234 [at] gmail [dot] com. Be aware that we do not intend to give anyone money up front before we get to know you through various means of communication and arrive at our destination. I may have been born at night but it sure wasn’t last night!

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.

Hello,

I am currently in the SE part of the US and I am moving to the SW. I have been working on getting my wife to understand the importance of preparing for various possible (and probable) disasters which she doesn’t want anything to do with. It puts me in a difficult spot knowing when the time comes I will have to make a decision I don’t want to make. With that said, I know what is in my heart and upbringing which is why I joined this forum. I am not a “professional prepper”, I admittedly have a lot to learn but I have to say I am better off than most (even if it is just knowledge). I am looking for a group in AZ that is interested in a family oriented, outdoors type, family-man that will be relocating to be near family and work. I am interested in finding either a “hunt camp” or a group that would allow either RV, weekend tent get-aways, or a small shed/house type structure if property is already secured. If it’s a group that gathers to share thoughts and ideas/plans (with no property) that’s fine too. FTF will be delayed until physical move is complete (expected around end of May ’16). I am open to interviews online pending mutual approval for a FTF meeting (email is in profile or post to this message for replies and initial contact). Stay safe out there!

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking 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 am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law 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 an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the 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 canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago 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, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian 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.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

My partner and I both live in the Crystal Lake/McHenry area, and we’re searching for other like-minded Preppers in the area to form a community, trade secrets and skills, and even have meetups and such!  We’re still students working on our degrees right now, so we’re still in our early stages of prep, but we’re enjoying learning everything that we can, and we’re very easy to get along with!

I’m working on my psych degree, which I know will be an extremely useful tool when SHTF, and am also an Eagle Scout, so I’ll have plenty to offer to whatever community might be willing to help us out!

 

Thanks!

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
