Family of six maybe seven looking to move with 30 to 60 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy last).  We are ready 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 have my own tools and equipment, food, water filter, some weapons and ammo, camper to live in till living structure is built.  Looking to build a CEB (compressed earth block) living structure.  I am also building my own CEB press.  If we joined a group, we will need at least 1-2 acre to build and live on.  We want to help others do the same, also willing to work on the common area preparing it for when it all falls apart.   I am learning every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  I also have the material to build a shop 39’x40′ with CEB walls from local soil.  I have two sons (21 & 30) a daughter (23) with 16 month old son (possibly a son-in-law) and a wife 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 a irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone 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 equipment and more.   I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder and rioting with families who were not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  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 and Las Cruces N.M, then Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.  We are debt free and looking for a group with similar 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.  I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.

Are you just about ready to make THE move once you find your perfect prepper homestead community?

THIS could be the place you’d love to live even if the world never collapses … but if it does, life here will still be wonderful.    It is just so much simpler to thrive (not just survive) in the gorgeous North GA mountains.

We would love to share our beautiful, peaceful  176 Acres of pristine hardwood forest, pastures, and abundant spring creeks with a few pleasant, like-minded, well-prepped Christian conservatives who will love living here as much as we do… and who will cheerfully pull together to thrive through whatever comes.

Will be selling only a few tracts for each person/couple to have their own private homestead of several acres, with lots of space for their gardens, animals, etc.   The majority of the land will remain natural for enjoying common gardens, orchards, hydro-projects, ponds, never-ending pure spring water, firewood, deer and turkey … and forest trails for hiking, horses, and just relaxing. Also very open to ideas like ‘cohousing’ and other innovations; it’s a big property.

BUT… Just what makes is THIS land a “Perfect Prepper Paradise”?  (aside from us nice folks, of course ) Glad you asked!  :-)

Perfect Climate:   Our local mountain ranges create a wonderful micro-climate around us… four lovely seasons, and our moderate summers and winters are even milder than the counties just above and below us.  No humidity and no need for air conditioning with a good design. I (Rebecca) designed my mostly glass passive solar home (heated only by the sun and my wood stove) and have not needed AC in 20 years! Our growing season is very long (Planting Zone 7) with plenty of rainfall and lots of sunshine. Lush green everywhere!

Perfect Location:  Ellijay (in Gilmer County) is a truly beautiful and sparsely-populated agricultural community in the gorgeous, green mountains of the Chattahoochee National Forest, about 40 miles south of the GA-TN-NC  border.

Our ranch is off the beaten track near the end of a quiet dead-end road where you can vanish into your own private world. Extremely peaceful, private yet convenient location… quiet and secluded, but not dangerously remote. Truly God’s country.

We’re about 14 miles from the Southern Terminus of the Appalachian Trail and 8 country miles to Ellijay, a very friendly small mountain town with mostly like-minded conservative, self-sufficient and welcoming people.   Three clean mountain rivers wind through the County; great for tubing, kayaking and trout fishing.

It’s a wonderful place to live and enjoy while life is “normal” and a very safe place to be if everything collapses.  (Think “Mayberry” in the mountains with a strong Constitutional Sheriff!)  Small family farms are abundant:  apple orchards, vineyards, organic grass-fed beef, chickens, etc.  Our neighboring family farm (4 generations) raises delicious grass-fed, hormone-free meat animals.

Perfect Land:   All the features you could want on one gorgeous piece of land!  This 176 Acres is blessed with ALL SOUTHERN Exposure, rich brown ORGANIC soil, and abundant gravity SPRING WATER… perfect for gardens, greenhouse, pasture, and Solar-designed homes!

Numerous pure drinkable, never-ending mountain springs, creeks and pond sites run through the land (we own to the watershed at the ridgeline!).  Plenty of drop for ponds, hydro-power, even fun projects like waterwheels.

The ridgeline runs along our North property line for great protection, which means ALL of the land faces south.  Several acres are already in pasture and open for gardens, orchards, etc.   The majestic old-growth forest with huge mature hardwoods, laurels, ferns and abundant wildlife is a serene sanctuary and provides great hunting (deer  & big turkey).

Because of the mountains surrounding our dead-end horseshoe valley, this location provides a lot of natural security, so we don’t have to be highly “militarized” (although security, military and gun skills are highly valued and needed). But the very best security is living in the right place… and being prepared for anything.  We can even shut off the only dead-end road coming into our mountain-surrounded valley if necessary!  The few neighbors living on our short road are assets; have their own provisions and would pull together for protection.

Most of the acreage is level and rolling up to high level plateaus with great mountain views!   The pastures are at 1750’ and the highest peak on the property is 2100’.  Excellent cell phone and high-speed internet coverage; cable available if you want it.

Perfect Homestead Tracts: Perfect because you’ll help design the perfect homestead YOU want, situated around the large natural areas set aside for common use.   Minimal sensible covenants will protect your investment, but not run your life.  I’ll work with each individual/couple to determine what area and how much land they want to buy for their homestead and then customize their tract to meet their desires.  Whether smaller or very large acreage, there are so many great choices here.  Obviously, the earlier folks will get the widest choices. Prices depend on the size and features of your tract, the terms, etc. All land is slightly different, so we’ll work out each case individually.

Us NOT-So-Perfect  (but pretty  darn nice) Folks:  We’re mature (at least most of the time 😉 ) friends, two separate singles and a couple so far, who have been prepping for varying lengths of time.   TEOTWAWKI can occur for any number of reasons, so we’re preparing for most anything and need a few more solid preppers with the skills to round out our community.

So far, we include a nurse, massage therapists, and many skills including beekeeping, canning and preserving, solar home designer, site planner, Master Gardener and Naturalist, general carpentry and repair, and experienced homesteading with livestock on this land.  We’re steady in a crisis, determined hard workers, easy-going, and love to laugh!  Good sense of humor and a creative, cooperative attitude are required!

In addition to working together on common or individual homestead projects and for mutual security, we want the solid foundation of a community built on good-natured, reliable, supportive friendships. Really get to know and like each other, quirks and all, by making the time to get together for cook-outs, games, music or whatever is fun!

Solid, caring friendships can be the glue that gets us through the rough times. Although we’re all strong, independent personalities, it is paramount to have a compatibility of attitudes, faith, ideas and goals so we’re all pulling in the same direction when it matters most, with the least amount of friction.   We’ll discuss compatibility as we talk individually.

I have lived on this land for most of my adult life and hung onto it through thick and thin “for just such a time as this.”   Been prepping since 2005 (lived here since the ’80’s) and have already been living a very simple life here for many years. I could go off-grid with a bit more time and effort; that’s the goal.

Over the years, I designed my passive solar home; built a pond off one of the springs; have a gusher of a well, plus back-up gravity water from another pure spring high up the mountain; cleared and fenced the pastures (have horses and a llama). You can do that too!  The others have moved nice travel trailers here to stay in until they build their homes.  Each person will have at least a year’s full preps stored away as quickly as possible (meaning soon).

Perfect Time:  Lately, it seems that the world is rushing even faster to compete for which disaster will be the first to hit the fan. You’ve been thinking, planning, looking.  NOW is the time to act.  Time is short, so if you are interested, please contact me very soon to discuss all the great possibilities.

Send me a PM here or email at:   MtnsofGa [ at ] gmail [dot] com.  I look forward to talking with you soon!

I’m lucky to have this quality family (you know who you are) use my place for a bug-out location.

I Would like just one more family (preferably with an RV) to bug-out on our farm in East Texas.  We’d all have more than enough room on 60 acres of woods.




May 192015

I’m Eric, a 55 year old guy, married for 17 years, very stable couple.  We live 30 min. north of Nacogdoches Tx on 60 acres of pines, oaks, maples, dogwoods, sweet gums, cottonwoods, cedars. We have 3 ponds scattered throughout the woods (approx. 12 acre feet) the large pond (1 acre) is stocked with catfish, bass & crappie.

I’ve been prepping over the last couple of years.  Not religious, if I had to pick one I’d say I’m more of a Buddhist than anything.  Spiritual-Yes

I’m looking for several good teammates for when SHTF in the next 24 months or so.

I’m easy going, understand situational awareness, not one for drama, honest as the day is long.  If your interested in joining a team like this in East Texas give me a holler.

My name is Lea and my husband is Jake, we have always been into prepping and we keep working on moving forward with our prepping. I am 10 years ex military, mechanical work but mostly convoy security, very good with all firearms. I was raised on a ranch so I am very good with farm animals and growing crops, hunting fishing and anything else. We are both currently going to school. We believe that when prepping you should move to your location sooner to prepare it. So we are looking for land and like minded people so we can get a farm and crops going for when something occurs. So if you are like minded and would like to get in touch feel free to reply on here and post an email or what not.

I have been prepping for only 6 months, prepping for an economic collapse. My wife doesn’t really pay it much mind and just lets me do all prepping and trust me to make the right decisions. Looking for like minded people to bounce off ideas off each other and help each other out. my email is aoan [dot] shu [at] gmail [dot] com

Apr 172015

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

Looking for strong like-minded people to form a group or join one. A little about me. I’m 45 years old and a 22-year retired military veteran. Survival instructor for 1/2 that time turned Pastor. I consider myself an intolerant Christian. What does this mean? I believe the Bible is the truth and there is no grey area. Jesus was loving; yet he was intolerant of sin. And today far too many are much more concerned with getting along than living Biblical truth. If you have a past (divorce etc) that’s great; same boat. We all make mistakes and grow from them. I’ve started preparing but feel a close group of like-minded people would be better. Additionally, I am an avid gun supporter. And Life Member of the NRA. One key thing… I don’t nor do I believe in social media what-so-ever. If you are on Facebook but call yourself a prepper; move along you’re not concerned enough about privacy and there is no reason for us to meet. I’m happily married and have 6 God-fearing children. It’s just a matter of time before things go south fast. So now is the time to seek a network of people you can trust. If that’s you. Let’s meet and see what happens next.

I am a jack of all trades that does not want to wait until the riots start to get ready. About all I will say for now so if you are out there give me a shout. Thanks

Mar 122015

I’m in the out skirts of northern Fort Worth, Texas
I have begun prepping and would like to meet other people who believe as I do that it’s best to plan for what everyone else seems to think will never happen.
I have food and some first aid as well as a bug out bag. But I am interested in maybe joining or starting a group that has a plan and meeting point. Anyone interested or has advice I’m greatful to learn.

Mar 072015

I’m going to try this one more time and see what happens. Are there any preppers or prepper groups in the Pampa Texas area? I really hope it’s not just my son, me and the meth heads. I need to buy more ammo.

Mar 072015

We are looking for Christian Preppers with key skills like Military security, Ham Radio communications (& equipment), Doctor/medical, Farming/Ranching (& tractor), Food preservation (canning, drying), producing bio-fuels, Fire Arms (& lots of ammo), Hunting, Fishing skills among others are needed. Reloading supplies, tools and hand tools are also a big plus.

Our Group has a formal plan that can be read at:

     Link 1 available upon request


     Link 2 available upon request

We are looking to select Group Members, Friends, and Neighbors ahead of a crisis. There would be several levels as follows:

First is a share ownership in one of the two fishing club properties below:

Our lowest cost option that we have is a 1/50th share in a 40 acre lake on ~125 acres of land for an up front charge of about $3,000 and annual dues of less than $100 unless you build, then it is less than $200.

     Link 3 available upon request.

We have another 80 acre lake with about 35 members (not all preppers on both lakes) on 160 acres of land.  Membership is $4,000 with an assessment of $50/month for a few more years until the dam and spill way note are paid for.  There is also $150/year dues.

     Link 4 available upon request

You apply to build on either lake, for a small charge, or buy a house from someone. Both are loaded with fish, beavers, otter and an occasional Bald Eagle. Two summers ago, the first one had a 47lb catfish caught and when it was surveyed by a wildlife biologist, they found a 20 lb. bass.  I caught catfish of 10 & 15 lbs on the second one and bass over 8 lbs.  Camping is permitted with lots of common area, piers, boat launch, and covered picnic tables, etc.

These are 10 minutes apart by car, 17 minutes by bicycle, an hour by foot and within radio communications distance. Both locations are within walking distance of our main retreat, can support each other, and offer redundancy as fallback locations.

I’m trying to grow discrete Prepper communities at these isolated locations.  Each has limited access that could be controlled and secured by parking a car or two across the road.  These make good primary BOL’s and good back up ones.

The second option is our main retreat where we will have different levels of participation as shown below.

Neighbors, Friends or near-by fellow Preppers with sufficient supplies including arms and ammo to serve as a part of a neighborhood security watch. We have some properties for sales in the area for those interested and some land we believe could handle squatters if necessary.

  1. Pre-approved Guests who may come if necessary on a first come first serve basis. They will be required to bring the minimum level of supplies required of all members and shelter when they arrive.  This retreat may be their back up option. Most guests will be selected from members in one of the fishing lakes.
  2. Pre-approved Members are Guests who plan to come if necessary and over time establish their minimum level of supplies expected of all members on site. They will also be expected to provide some agreed small portable storage like a trailer or camper for their stores and future lodging. We have water, sewer and some electricity. This may be their backup or primary retreat option.
  3. Residents are long term Members who also later build/install an agreed semi-permanent lodging on site.

Membership benefits:

  1. Secure Retreat location with solid Christian members.
  2. Gardening site for raising your food; pasture for livestock.
  3. Existing live stock supply
  4. Ample water supply
  5. Solar powered electric plug for charging batteries during daytime
  6. Home School for children
  7. 24 – 7 Security detail, of which you will be a part of
  8. Registered Nurse, medical supplies
  9. Gardening, Fire Arm and Martial Arts Instructors
  10. Much more

There is a small cost to become a member that will be disclosed to qualified parties that are seriously interested.

My wife and I try to be as ready as we can and do more all the time. We have a huge garden , chickens and milk goats. We eat all we can and can all we can.

Was wondering if any one else like minded was nearby. We usually have more than enough in the garden if anyone wants to buy, trade or barter for some vegetables or even help with harvest in exchange for produce.

And it would be nice to just visit with like minded folks. Can be reached at twistedoakfarms [at] gmail [dot] com

Hi. My wife, daughter and I are beginner preppers in NRH (North Fort Worth). We are currently stockpiling gear and I am teaching my wife and daughter how to survive outdoors. I have a wide engineering background and grew up learning to survive in various climates. We are looking for like-minded friends to brainstorm with. We are very relaxed preppers. We know the importance of being prepared, but will not sacrifice our happiness to do so. We have a couple interested friends and our meetings so far have been bar-b-q’s, having a beer, and coming up with ideas for bug-outs and safehouses. Drop me a message if you are in the NRH area and are serious about prepping (just not too serious).

Our group has a lot of experience with firearms and camping just to keep it short. If you have any questions feel free to contact us and I hope we will be able to work together. We are looking for groups from NC, SC, VA, TX, GA, and KY really any states near North Carolina. Contact me at jernigan09@yahoo(dot)com

Fellow Brothers n Sisters in Arms, I am seeking a location to plant some well established roots. Looking for a place to grow. Tired of working on ranches and farms for nothing to show but an aching back. For people who want a slave to jump at their every need. I am by no means a “master” of anything just a “jack of all……” I’ve been a survivalist forever and a prepper at heart. I believe a mans word, handshake and the sweat off his back is enough to put good food on his table and a clean, warm, dry place to lay his head. OK, now the bad news. I love our country and will defend it with spilt blood when the time comes, however I do not support a corrupt government or lazy Americans who suck the economy dry. So, 10 years ago I quit my job, sold my truck, cut up my DL n SS cards, and quit paying taxes. I am not lazy, I work as hard as I can everyday. I am not a conspiracy theorists or a militia nut, I just have strong beliefs and I stick to them no matter what! I DO NOT DRINK SMOKE OR DO DRUGS, no drama, never married, no kids. Physically healthy no handicaps. I can not offer material items nor any kind of money. However I can offer labor, loyalty, respect, progress, stablility, common sense, strong morals, and will protect the land from “ANY” intruders. I’m not looking to mooch off anyone, I earn my keep. I am looking for a place to live, work, play, and grow.

Hello all! We are a lesbian prepper couple in south Texas. We have a small farm and large ranch where we grow, raise, and hunt our own food. Looking for like minded lgbt and friendlies to form a network. A little about us: early thirties, liberal and agnostic but we love and respect others with different world views. Anyone want to start talking and get to know each other? Maybe we can support each other. Feel free to message me.

My husband and I over the last few months have come to the conclusion that this next year will bring extreme change in our economy and government policies will only further degrade our society. We decided as a family on the 1st of January to start preparing for what we believe will happen. We both work for the same company and are using our financial surplus to store and prepare. I have 7 years of military experience and emergency medical training and am brushing up on that training and am going to store a sizeable amount of emergency medical equipment as I can obtain it. This is a very new concept to us but we believe God has revealed to us that it is more important than just ignoring it. We are followers and servants of Christ and are not afraid of what may come but mentally preparing ourselves. I never thought to find other like minded people, but after seeing no one in our church is even concerned we feel very alone in this and that’s why I have taken to a prepping support website. In our hearts and from following geopolitics and current events we are convinced of a major economic collapse this year. If anyone shares our thoughts and values please let us know. We would love to hear advice and thoughts from others who share these beliefs.

We just held our Arlington Emergency Preparedness group meeting last night and I want to thank all our new comers for their attendance and contributions in the planning of our training agenda for 2015.

We put together a list of topics we felt were the most important should something happen to our current lifestyle.

Communication was first on the list:   We need an alternative or backup plan to be able to communicate with our families, each other and other important people in our lives should our phone system go down for any reason.

Scare Bags and Scram Bags were second on the list:  We need a proper 72 hour kit first because the first three days are the most critical to get through. It needs to be designed to your personal family needs. Remember the saying “Two is One and One is None”. You will need at least two of these 72 hour kits. The next level of preparedness is your scram bag, go bag or get out of town bag. They go by many names but this type of bag is there when you decide it’s time to leave and relocate to a different location if you have the time. Remember two or more of these bags are important to have.

Water Purification, both short term and long term:  We need to properly treat our water and know how to find the water and then to purify it. Sanitation goes along with the water purification.

Security was forth on the list: How to protect our possessions and ourselves. This involves defense and awareness, when to run and when to fight. Training, what to use for defense, guns or something else.

Bartering and protection of assets from government and others:  Government has now passed laws to take all qualified accounts, 401k, IRA, Roth’s and pensions. They just passed another law they hope we don’t find out about until it’s too late called the “Bank Bail In Rule”. Where all our bank accounts are now owned by the banks and should they get in trouble again for continuing to do what got them in trouble the first time, they now get to take our money and issue us the lowest entitled stock of the bank.  We just continue to let them do it to us.

We are excited about the next year and feel that something could happen at any time now. Our only defense it knowledge and training, training, training and when we are done training then training. We can only rise to the level of our training and no further. If untrained we become unsure and hesitate or freeze and that is fatal. The wolf shows no mercy and the only thing the wolf fears is the sheepdog. We all need to know and support our sheepdogs. (Find out what I’m talking about here)

Until next month, learn and train.
