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).

I’m looking to hook up with a senior Prepper(s) in my area. I have my supplies, but need a Prepper friend. Someone to brainstorm with, practice,  maybe make a Bug-out plan with. I have adult children who have prepped for an emergency, but they don’t want to Bug-out.  I live in Forest Hill which is just south-east of Fort Worth. If you’re looking for a Prepper friend, please PM me. Thanks.

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.


Please feel free to email me ANYTIME at txn3prcnt(at)hotmail(dot)com thanx

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.

Vance Lowe,
Arlington Emergency Preparedness Group

Hi All!

I am looking for a group to join in or around the Houston, Texas area.

About me: I served 16 years in the Air Force as a first responder. I have directed personnel during and participated in many disasters (i.e. earthquakes, tsunamis, volcanoes, hurricanes, etc.)  as well as “playing” in the sandbox during three different tours. I currently work as an ER nurse here in Houston. I garden on a regular basis and I am currently learning how to save seeds. I have basic electrical knowledge (I can install ceiling fans, lights, outlets, & switches) and I can swing a hammer with the best of them. I know how to fish, camp, cook, start a fire, and shoot a gun (yes I do have my own firearms and ammo and I am not afraid to use them). I have enough supplies to last me at least three years. I am not religious, but I do believe in God. I am not looking to join a militia or any type of para-military organization.  I would like to join an established group (hopefully a mix of families and singles) that will be there for each other through any natural or man-made disasters.

If you think I might fit in with your group, please let me know.

Thank you.

We are a Christian and Family oriented group. We usually meet on the 3rd Sunday evening of each month. We do all types of training, camp-outs, Saturday workshops etc. If interested in attending and possible membership please contact me at: v l o w e 0 3 2 5 a t g m a i l d o t c o m.

This last meeting we delivered the Kelly Kettle stove orders (a rocket stove only with water).

We now have almost enough interest to order a pallet of large 290 watt solar panels to start making the portable solar generators. (we get very discounted pricing)

We will be having our Annual Planning meeting on the 16th at 7:00pm.

This is the opportunity for all to schedule the topics, activities and training they want the group to pursue for 2015.
We encourage everyone to send in their suggestions and ideas before the meeting so we can organize everything.
It’s also a change to change the meeting time and place if we get a majority vote.

We look forward to members and any who wish to see what we do to attend this meeting.

Please RSVP only

We would like to meet others to join or set up as trading partners for when SHTF.

We live in Rockdale Texas, approximately 1 hour from Austin, Temple, and Bryan/College Station.

Due to our love of the land and for wilderness camping, we have been, without knowing it, prepping for several years.  We are able to, and do quite often, go out in the middle of nowhere and survive for a week or two on what we take with us and what we can gather / hunt, leaving the area with little to no trace that anyone had been there when we leave.

Between the two of us we have the following skills / abilities,

Clothing Design / Making
First Aid / CPR
Hunting – Archery
Hunting – Gun
Wine making
Water Filtration

We are working on learning / developing the following skills / abilities,

Beer Making
Candle Making
Cheese Making
Compass Navigation
HAM Radio
Herb for Medical
Alternative Power

Despite the fact that we do make wine, and are learning to make other forms of alcohol, we do not drink.  Currently we give away what we make to friends and family and plan to use it for barter when the SHTF.

I am very new and just really researching, trying to figure this out. I was definitely not raised to prepare. However, I am seeing the need as I live just a few hours from current Ebola cases and 40 minutes from people being monitored by the CDC. I am looking for other preppers that can guide me as it seems overwhelming at times.

BTW: I am not helpless. I have skills I can bring to the table and am a fast learner. We are Christian homeschoolers. I grew up in a medical family as my family is a surgeon and my mother is a nurse. I have worked in the prison system, hospital and mental health treatment centers as a social worker. We just need fellowship, ideas, guidance from the more experienced.

So please feel free to PM me or post a comment below. I am in Williamson County, Texas

Hello, my name is LISAMARIE.  My partner, David and I recently put a down payment on 16 acres of land in Presidio County, West Texas and are interested in starting a self-sufficient community.  We would like to network with like-minded people with the same goal.  Now, this isn’t something that we begin over night. We work as Gate Guards on the oil field now, but our goal is to have saved the money to pay off the land in one year and to break ground in two to three years.  We are looking for other singles/couples/families that we can get to know now that also feel that two-three years is a reasonable amount of time to save and plan towards this goal.  We would like to start an LLC to protect members interests.  We would be developing a small village with earthbag construction. We would be entirely off the grid with solar, wind and biofuel. We would raise goats and chickens and have a large permaculture garden and greenhouse. Goal is obviously total self sufficiency. Not every member must live on site full time, but it would be preferred if at least some made it their primary residence, as we will. Our goal is to save enough money in the next three years to build a farm. We will do this by saving half of what we earn. Hopefully there are others who will bring in significant financial support, but other things will be considered such as a high skill set and experience, ability for physical labor, contribution of tractors/tools/supplies, etc. The point is, you must be an asset to the community. Labor will be shared.  We will all help in building each others houses.  All members should spend the next two-three years researching, saving and/or stockpiling, and networking and sharing knowledge and ideas with other members. I know that many of us know the importance of self-sufficiency and disaster preparedness and say “we really should… someday.”. Well this is something we can actually do if we concentrate our minds and energy on it and make it happen!  We will not discriminate against age, race, religious beliefs or sexual orientation. You must practice tolerance as well.  I look forward to hearing from potential new members.  Tell me all about yourselves!
