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.

Well established Northern Va prepper group looking for new members.  We are NOT a militia!!!  We are seeking like minded families willing to come together in an emergency and be active in a group. Backround in the Medical field is a plus.     We are down to earth people that believe in our country but also believe in self reliance.  if interested email [email protected]

The present facts of our current and emerging reality coupled with your gut-level intuition about what is getting ready to happen can no longer be ignored…we are heading for a major life-altering event. You’ve come to the unsettling conclusion that there are too many danger signals to deny.  If you follow the prophecies of Nostradamus, 2017 looks to be the tumultuous year.

So, you have stored some food, ammo, and weapons; you read some books on gardening and basic medical care.  But are you really ready?  You can wait until you are facing fundamental societal change to determine how ready you are, but that is a decision that carries serious consequences if you aren’t.

Safety and Skills in Numbers

The wise choice would be to join a group that is serious about preparing for an event.   We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterward at a secluded and secured location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term sustainability.

For six years, we have prepared a safe-haven community of multiple family units located in central North Carolina for our membership from 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. We are not sure what will take place or when but just like you, we can discern the signs of that inevitability.  After all, it is not a matter of if; it is a matter of when.

Our 50-acre retreat has all of the needs necessary for long-term survival under any circumstances including:

  • A deep well with pristine water (with a backup manual pump)
  • A pond and a fast-flowing creek
  • Abundant deer, wild turkey and wild rabbit
  • Domesticated livestock including rabbits, chickens, Guinea Hens, goats, and ducks
  • Sustainable gardens (raised beds and tilled ground) to replenish our stores for food consumption and medical needs
  • A fruit orchard and numerous fruit bushes
  • Abundant natural growing tubers, blackberries and other non-cultivated food sources as a back-up
  • Ongoing construction of a greenhouse to cultivate vegetables, sprouts, and seedlings for longer growing seasons
  • Solar energy systems under development with a dedicated and skilled team working on Energy to determine exact power needs and equipment.

Who We Are

Because our objective is to be self-sufficient when we have to occupy our retreat, we feel it is critical to store and prepare together rather than risk an isolated effort that cannot be defended when social order collapses. We all value the safety of our families above all else, which enables us to collaborate in preparing for that event.

I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an infantry unit as part of five years in the US Army, so I know what it takes to protect your habitation.  I have also served as CEO of three successful companies in my career, so I know how to successfully organize people and projects.

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks committed to preparing for an event.  Many of our membership are former military, so we bring that self-discipline and spirit of camaraderie.

The retreat includes a small medical clinic as our membership includes medical personnel. We are prepared for many medical emergencies or situations.

In addition to the medical staff, our members also include several engineers, an attorney, an auto mechanic, retired Army infantryman, a competition shooter/fisherman, a seamstress, several correctional officers, and a certified aviation mechanic and assembler. We have formed teams to address security/weaponry, medical care, food production, food preparation, communications, construction, and energy.  Each team has a team leader and organizational charter.

Our Leadership Team (all former military) sets executive policies and provides day-to-day operational decisions.  Issues that involve long-term implications or significant allocation of resources or major policy changes are brought before the group for discussion and decisions.  We do not run our organization like a commune or homeowners association—but more like a corporate or quasi-military organization.

If you are looking for a pure democracy with extended deliberations and a vote on everything while progress is measured at a snail’s pace… pass us by.  If you are looking for a group to join that you can maintain a passive enrollment, store food with your “name on the list” for “when the balloon goes up”; we are not the group for you.

We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

  • Operational facilities and extensive sustainable survival provisions maintained in a high state of readiness with the services of a full-time caretaker and group projects conducted at regular meetings.
  • Personal and group training in sustainable living skills (gardening, livestock, construction, food preservation/preparation), operational security / defensive skills, and medical/TCCC (tactical combat casualty care) training.
  • Solid relationships between members based on trust, competence, and contributions to the group over an extended period. Everyone in the community contributes from their resources and skill sets to make us a stronger group.

Our motto is:  Plan, Prepare, and Practice.   

We hold monthly gatherings which are also Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend every month. During a typical weekend, we conduct training sessions, defense simulations, and work projects.

Firearms and security training is part of every session, and members are encouraged to seek out individual firearms training as well.  Most of our membership have also attended off-site weapons training, occasionally together. We have a 25-meter and 125-meter pistol and rifle range and provide training in basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use at every monthly Gathering with trained instructors.

Our onsite workshops include working on developing the retreat as well as developing our skill sets. Many of our members have attended homesteading skill and survival training programs at conferences to enhance skills.

In addition to a 360+ page operations manual to support our members, we have also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol which has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts. We take our security seriously, so security is 24/7/365.  After all, if you can’t defend it, it’s not yours.

Our Retreat

We have accommodation cabins, RV spaces, a medical clinic, a well-house with backup manual well pump, a 4-room bath house with showers and laundry facilities, community center, provisions storage area, commercial kitchen and communications center/operations room. We have a large amount of stored water, solar energy, propane supply, and wood as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include multi-layer nesting of all electronics within Faraday Cages.

To support our communications center, several of our members have Ham licenses.  Our communications center will monitor radio traffic and stay connected with a network of other ham operators when the event occurs. We also have an internal switchboard system with a hard-wired phone system.  As a precaution, we have duplicate equipment for everything—back-ups to back-ups.

We all share in the development of our community through working at every monthly Gathering. While we don’t occupy the retreat until an event has occurred, our members can use the property for R&R to enjoy hunting, fishing, relaxing as a large area surrounds us with plentiful game.

Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) at $250/month to pay for on-site caretaker/security personnel and utilities to man 24-7.  We do have a one-time membership fee that is non-refundable.

We have cabins available as well as several RV space (RV has a full range of sewer, water, and power hook-ups). We are looking for capable and willing folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as energy (solar, etc.) patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, hunting, etc.

There May Be A Place for You in Our Community

We are also seeking additional skills to add to our mix.  No anti-government types, militants or racists.  We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America. Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as background and criminal checks.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types).  We are not “Bible-thumpers, ” but we do have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs. We often have Sunday Bible service, but attendance is optional. We review our mission, vision, and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a well-organized, like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application. We start with a phone call first to assess where you are in your prepping efforts.

The retreat is ready to be occupied by members at a moment’s notice. We keep the candle burning 24/7.  You could be one of those able to flee the perils of the decline of social order for the security of a small well-trained, organized, and prepared community.

How important is your family’s welfare and security? What are their lives worth to you?  Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones when everything turns upside down. It is like owning an insurance policy you never want to be collected or that spare tire you keep in the trunk of your vehicle you never want to use.

If you want to see a video of our group, then go to YouTube and search for “Tranquility Ridge r2”.  You should get a sense of our group from the video. We are serious folks and have a mission that is reviewed every meeting.

If your family’s security and welfare is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today. Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 [at] gmail [dot] com to request an application and list of further requirements.  We will arrange a phone call for more details and a discussion of your skill sets and readiness.

We are committed to preparing—are you?

Do ever wonder if a group of men woman and children could gather and be what the apostles were in Acts 2:42-47? Our Father told us to watch and prepare but how can we prepare if we are so attached to a world system that is bound to fall and all those who are part of it. Soon; it will be time to live as they lived whether we like it or not.

So lets come together now and explore what Father would do in us and through us as we prepare for the Tribulation that will try the world.

Our vision is to not only prepare but to build an ark for those who will come when it hits. The fatherless, the poor, those mislead by false doctrines all could be helped. I know someone is going to say we need to be careful letting someone in once it hits but my GOD is able and will help us. With that said if you would like to help us get there then contact me soon.

We need all the help we can get!

Hey my name is Tom and my wife and I live in Lewisville just outside of Winston-Salem. I have been prepping for many years and have what I think to be all of the basics.

I have food stores I have unlimited water with a deep well and a hand pump, I have a pond, chickens and I’m beginning to raise rabbits. I live in a rural area and have a sufficient garden each year and I am putting solar panels up to be able to run a refrigerator freezer in case of a loss of power. I’ve got a wood-burning stove with a lot of oak trees and cords cords of wood ready to go.The blower will also be on solar. I only have 3 acres and it’s just my wife and I.

My problem is I have some concerns on how to defend it myself should SHTF. If you’re interested in contributing to the homestead, email me and perhaps we can discuss options. winstom1 at aol dot com

It appears that most people are waiting for the outcome of the s-election. Regardless, whoever gets in, we are still going to experience an unprecedented upheaval. 30 years of research and studying have taught me one thing; forget most of what you’ve learned from so-called “survival experts”. Under normal conditions, their advice is accurate and right on point. But when it hits the fan this time, it will be entirely different circumstances. Scriptures will confirm that fact. Increase the odds of your surviving by hearing us out before making the final decision of where, what, why and how.

I learned a great lesson in life about people. There’s people that do, people that talk about doing, and people that do nothing at all.

We’re looking for those that can Think and DO. People that feel, know and understand the signs of what’s been occurring, and has only escalated in the past twenty years. We’ve wasted too much time already, tying to appeal to others ideas about how to prepare. Face it, no matter how much we prepare, there’s always going to be a should have, would have and could have. There are no absolutes in this world. The only absolute there is, is it’s time to dump the log and get off the pot.

There is 2.65 acres up for sale right next to our location, with room on our land for more. We’re 80% prepared and ready to finish, as best anyone can. We have all the tools for building, mechanical, gardening, energy and security. All we need now, is people. People with the ambition, knowledge, ability(financial) and skills to join us. We’ve already spoken with our fair share of crazies, people that don’t have the common sense to take things seriously.

So, if you are serious and realize the urgency, we are willing to share our knowledge, experience, and sincerity in being prepared. We are trustworthy and loyal, with principles and values outlined within the Scriptures. Which means, we do not judge and treat people the way we want to be treated. Extensive research went into choosing this location.
If interested, private message, with email or number. Security protocols will have to be met, to weed out the speculators and spectators.

May our Creator have mercy on all our souls!

The present facts of our current and emerging reality coupled with your gut-level intuition about what is getting ready to happen can no longer be ignored…we are heading for a major life-altering event. You’ve come to the unsettling conclusion that there are too many danger signals to deny.  DON’T IGNORE YOUR INTUITION.

So, you have stored some food, ammo and weapons; you read some books on gardening and basic medical care.  But are you really ready?  You can wait until you are facing fundamental societal change to determine how ready you are, but that is a decision that carries serious consequences.

Safety and Skills in Numbers

The wise choice would be to join a group that is serious about preparing for an event.   We have been preparing for multiple  years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secured location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

We have prepared a safe haven community of a dozen family units located in central North Carolina for our membership from 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. We are not sure what will take place or when but just like you, we can discern the signs of that inevitability.  After all, it is not a matter of if; it is a matter of when.

Our 50-acre retreat has all of the needs necessary for long-term survival under any circumstances including:

  • A deep well with pristine water (with a backup manual pump)
  • A pond and a fast-flowing creek
  • Abundant deer, wild turkey and rabbit
  • Domesticated livestock including rabbits, chickens, goats and ducks
  • Sustainable gardens (raised beds and tilled ground) to replenish our stores for food consumption and medical needs
  • A fruit orchard and numerous fruit bushes
  • Abundant natural growing tubers, blackberries and other non-cultivated food sources as a back-up
  • Ongoing construction of a greenhouse to cultivate vegetables, sprouts and seedlings for longer growing seasons
  • Solar energy systems under development with a dedicated and skilled team working on Energy to determine exact power needs and equipment.

Who We Are

Because our objective is to be self-sufficient when we have to occupy our retreat we feel it is critical to store and prepare together rather than risk an isolated effort that cannot be defended when social order collapses. We all value the safety of our families above all else, which enables us to collaborate in preparing for that event.

I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an combat infantry unit as part of five years in the US Army, so I know what it takes to protect your habitation.  I have also served as CEO of three successful companies in my career so I know how to successfully organize people and projects.

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks committed to preparing for an event.  Many of our membership are former military so we bring that self-discipline and spirit of camaraderie as well as mission-focus.

The retreat includes a stocked medical clinic as our membership includes several doctors, a RN and an EMT. We are prepared for many medical emergencies or situations.

In addition to the medial staff listed above, our members also include several electrical engineers, an attorney, an auto mechanic, a teacher, DOC officer, retired Army infantryman, an IT expert, a competition shooter/fisherman, a seamstress, construction contractor, teacher, a former SWAT member and a trained aviation mechanic and assembler. We have formed teams to address security/weaponry, medical care, food production, food preparation, communications, construction and energy.  Each team has a team leader and organizational charter.

We also form Task Forces to address specific needs like Mobilization/Activating Communications and Perimeter Security Training Aids.

Our three-person Leadership Team (all former military) sets executive policies and provides operational day-to-day decisions.  Issues that involve long-term implications or significant allocation of resources or policy changes are brought before the group for discussion and decisions.  We do not run our organization like a commune or home owners association—but more like a corporate or quasi-military organization.

If you are looking for a pure democracy with extended deliberations and a vote on everything while progress is measured at a snail’s pace… pass us by.  If you are looking for a group to join that you can maintain a passive enrollment, store food with your “name on the list” for “when the balloon goes up”; we are not the group for you.  Our motto is “Plan-Prepare-Practice” so we don’t just think about alternate energy–we develop it.  We don’t just read books on first aid–we practice it.

We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

  • Operational facilities and extensive sustainable survival provisions maintained in a high state of readiness with the services of a full-time caretaker and group projects conducted at regular meetings.
  • Personal and group training in sustainable living skills (gardening, livestock, construction, food preservation/preparation), operational security / defensive skills, and medical/TCCC (tactical combat casualty care) training.
  • Solid relationships between members based on trust, competence, and contributions to the group over an extended period of time. Everyone in the community contributes from their resources and skill sets to make us a stronger group.
  • The governance bodies are: an Ops Leader, Assistant Ops Leaders (Leadership Team) and a Community Council (made of adult members).

Our motto is: Plan, Prepare, and Practice.   

We hold monthly gatherings which are also Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend every month. During a typical weekend we conduct numerous training sessions and defense simulations.

Firearms and security training is part of every session and members are encouraged to seek out individual firearms training as well.  Most of our membership have also attended off-site weapons training, occasionally together. We have a 25-meter and 125-meter pistol and rifle range and provide training in basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use at every Gathering with several trained instructors/range officers.

Our onsite workshops include working on developing the retreat as well as developing our skill sets. Many of our members have attended homesteading skill and survival training programs at conferences to enhance skills. We plan to bring select experts in for additional training in the next few months.

In addition to a 360+ page operations manual to support our members, we have also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol which has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts. We also have an extensive CCTV camera system for surveillance with several monitoring stations. We take our security seriously, so onsite security is 24/7/365.  After all, if you can’t defend it, it’s not yours, so ours is defensible.

Here is a sampling of some of the training topics we have presented:

  • Foot patrolling techniques
  • Tactical gear
  • Small unit tactics
  • Radio Talk Protocol
  • Running & gunning
  • First aid and trauma medical care
  • Compass reading and orienting
  • Communications protocol
  • Battery storage
  • Water purification
  • Sanitation
  • Alternative energy devices
  • Solar energy
  • Gardening
  • Cheese sealing
  • Food packaging
  • Slaughtering and dressing of domestic livestock
  • Herbs, homeopathy, and essential oils/tinctures
  • Candle making
  • Radiation-countering supplements
  • EMP protection
  • Earth moving equipment operation
  • Survival skills and much more…

Our Retreat

We have accommodation cabins, RV spaces, a medical clinic, a well-house with backup manual well pump, a 3-room bath house with showers and laundry facilities, shop, diesel and gas storage, community center, provisions storage area, commercial kitchen and communications center/operations room. We have a large amount of stored water, solar energy, propane supply and wood burning as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include multi-layer nesting of all electronics within Faraday Cages.

We are finalizing our solar power system as we have done extensive research in the process and have been accumulating solar equipment for years.

We have installed a four-stage air filtration unit (with large bank of deep-cycle marine batteries) for our fallout shelter that can remove 99.99% of the impurities in the event of a NBC or fallout event. Every member has to have a functioning gas mask and fresh filter.  Our fallout shelter is self-contained and able to sustain the community members for weeks, if needed. We also have calibrated radiation monitoring equipment, dosimeters and hazmat suits for clean-up and outside monitoring.

To support our communications center, six of our members have Ham licenses.  Our communications center will monitor radio traffic and stay connected with a network of other ham operators when the event occurs. We also have our own internal switchboard system with hard-wired phone system.  As a precaution, we have duplicate equipment for everything—back-ups to back-ups.

Anyone can have a Plan B…but you may need a Plan C.

We all share in the development of the community through working at every monthly Gathering. While we don’t occupy the retreat until an event has occurred, our members can use the property for R&R to enjoy hunting, fishing, relaxing as we are surrounded by a large area with plentiful game.

Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) at $250/month to pay for on-site caretaker/security personnel and utilities to man 24-7.  We do have a one-time membership fee of $750 that is non-refundable that goes into our construction fund.

We have one cabin available as well as a RV space (RV has full range of sewer, water and power hook-ups). We are looking for capable and willing folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as energy (solar, etc.) patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, hunting, etc.

There May Be A Place for You in Our Community

We are also seeking additional skills to add to our mix.  No anti-government types, militants or racists.  We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America. Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as background and criminal checks.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types).  We are not “Bible-thumpers” but we do have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs. We have Sunday Bible service, but attendance is optional. We have an optional Sunday Service when we hold our weekend Gathering but attendance is optional.

We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a well-organized, like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application. We start with a phone call first.

The retreat is ready to be occupied by members at a moment’s notice. We keep the candle burning 24/7.  You could be one of those able to flee the perils of the decline of social order for the security of a small well-trained, organized, and prepared community.

How important is your family’s welfare and security? What are their lives worth to you?  Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones when everything turns upside down. It is like owning an insurance policy you never want collected or that spare tire you keep in your trunk you never want to use.

We have been told by several TV production companies that have approached us for filming that we are one of the most organized groups they have come across.  Then why haven’t you seen us on TV?  It is simple…our operation security is far more important than ‘15 minutes of fame.’  We are preppers–not food hoarders or entertainers.

If you want to see a video of our group, visit YouTube and search for “Tranquility Ridge r2”.  You should get a sense of our group from the video. We are serious folks and have a mission that is reviewed every meeting.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today. Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com to discuss your qualifications by phone and then we will send you an application and list of further requirements.

We have one cabin and one RV space left and it is first-come-first-serve.  Remember, most of the Jews of Europe missed the early tell-tale signs of the sinister changes that were taking place in the 1930’s.  Don’t miss this opportunity to join an established and organized group–we are serious…are you?

Hi, I live in the Shenandoah valley of northwestern Virginia, I am a 24 year old female, single, Christian (Baptist), I believe in a small government (I’m not an anarchist–I believe the government must have some control, but that our current government has taken on too much). I’m not interested in being a hermit. In a TEOTWAWKI scenario, I think it’s important to hold onto one’s humanity, and that includes rebuilding “civilized society” after it falls.

Here are further facts about me, positive and negative: 

I am an intermediate/advanced loom knitter, I can weave on a pin loom, I am a novice sewist, I have this ability to design some textiles without buying a pattern. I love to bake, and am learning to cook. I have a strong desire to homeschool my future children. I am a Certified Zentangle Teacher (a pen-on-paper art form, easy to do, it can have anti-anxiety effects on the person using the method). Depending on when SHTF happens, I may have some book knowledge on psychology and counseling by then; currently I have some innate talent for giving sound counsel, and I’m constantly learning.

The negatives: I am currently unable to work a “real” job due to Aspergers, a sleep disorder, and psychiatric issues. (So in a SHTF scenario I’d need to explore natural ways to combat depression and anxiety before my meds ran out). I am currently on government assistance and live with my parents. I will always need gentle reminders to do certain things, but I don’t usually need direct help to complete tasks I’m capable of accomplishing. I’m out of shape. I have started a bug out bag and a more extensive bug out box that I can easily put in the trunk of a car, but otherwise I have no tangible preparedness items.

If I were to join a group with a BOL, I would soon ask that, if SHTF, would my mother, dad, brother, and his family (if he has one by that time) could join me at the BOL. Below is a short list of their skills and limitations:

Mom: expert crocheter, can teach crochet, can supervise older children. She is physically disabled with chronic pain.

Dad: handyman, maintAins our cars, house, knows when to take shortcuts and when not to, safety conscious, decent carpentry skills, excellent work ethic. Has type 2 diabetes, some back issues (monthly chiropractic visits take care of it) otherwise in very good health.

Brother: young adult, has interest in becoming a gunsmith and possibly doing some blacksmithing, has much book knowledge on firearms. Has POTS (look up POTS in children) but has slowly been improving. Hoping he grows out of this chronic illness within the next few years. Insanely smart.

We as a family do not currently prep. We do not have the space to store extra food or supplies; daddy is so busy at work and home that he has no business adding “prepper” to the mix; we are financially strapped. I am a follower, not a leader, else I’d take charge of some measure of prepping.

If you’ve read this far, then you or your group are capable of dealing with the disadvantages to including me. I DO have something of value to bring to the table, but I’m very frank, and I don’t want to make myself out to be this perfect prepper lady when I’m not. Thank you for reading my post, and have a nice day.

I was wondering if there are any survivalists in my area that are members here. I am new to prepping but not new to survival. I have many skills and extensive experience in outdoor survival. Just recently started to put together a Bug out bag (you can call it what you like) and I soon realized that in a EOTW senario, people would be your greatest resource. I would like to establish a group of like minded people so we could pull our resources, experience and knowledg.

Hello everyone, I am looking to start interaction  with some “like minded” people that live around my area.  Although I have some contacts already, this internet, synergy, blogging thing is new to me.  I will try to summarize some details that describe who I am in the upcoming sentences.  For starters, I am close to my mid 40’s and work out 4 to 6 days a week. My wife and I are both in the medical field and the parents of 2 wonderful sons.  Give or take a year and they are around 10 years old.  The Blue Ridge Mountains are very addictive and my family is always hiking, fishing, hunting, or camping every moment we can. This may sound a bit strange but the mountain’s tug at my being and I am happiest when I am in them.  Unfortunately, my occupation is lucrative but extremely demanding and takes the vast majority of each day.

I started my prepping mindset in the year 2007.  Every week I would go to Walmart and buy 1050 rounds (2 value pack boxes) of Federal 22LR  for $37.94.  The preps moved onto different calibers and I started upgrading some of my reloading equipment.  Obama was elected and all hell broke loose.  It started in ammo, moved to guns, magazines, then to primers and powder, etc.  Stocked up and with no fear compared to the rest of the nation, I realized that prepping specific items would be essential for the years to come.

Somewhere along 2006 to 2007, I took my first defensive handgun course in West VA.  Lets just say I was hooked!!!  One course led to another, then another to the point I have now taken around 9 courses from pistol to precision rifles and everything in between.  I try to take at least one course a year to refresh the drill skills.  Without question, my favorite style of range time is long range shooting.  Over the years, I invested in several custom rifles with scopes of equal expense or more.   A precision rifle cannot be utilized to the fullest unless the barrel harmonics and optimization of the ammo has been evaluated.  What that means is I have spent hours and hours at my reloading bench then collecting trigger time.  On the norm, I get about 50 to 100 rounds down range about every 2 weeks depending on what firearm I feel the urge to take with me.  For those of you that know the lingo, I am a sub MOA shooter with my precision weapons.

My personality is one that is extraverted.  In my occupation, I am in an Alpha position and have numerous employees that need my help/guidance every day.  I naturally migrate to people that are genuinely nice, knowledgable, and where an unspoken respect can be established between us simply because I like them.  On the other hand, my fuse is pretty short for people that reek of arrogance, drama, self righteousness, laziness, and entitlement.

Lastly, I have made some mistakes in the past “regarding preps” but have learned what is cost effective verses wasted money.  There’s so much to learn that it takes years to develop experience.  Unfortunately, everybody wants to offer advice but at least 95% of the people just regurgitate Bull Shit they have heard in hopes of trying to impress.  I can honestly say I am pretty proficient in hunting, fishing, marksmanship, moderate gun smithing, and gardening.  My wife has other sought after skill sets that make her extremely valuable.  If we sound like the kind of people you would like to meet, then reply to this post and we can plan something over coffee.

“Read more about us on page 146 of Lights Out by Ted Koppel!”

Friends,  we have had a TON of success networking with other preppers across the country, but mostly on the East Coast.  When we saw there was a lack of good expos out there, as a place for people to get quality education and products and services, we decided to do something about it, and that’s where EC PREPCON was born.  We’re now on our 5th show, and in the past, have had folks like Ted Koppel come through when he was researching for his acclaimed book, Lights out.  You can actually read about a past show on page 146 of his book.

Scott Hunt of Practical Preppers will be our keynote speaker.  NYTimes bestselling author on survival will also be there.  Former SWAT officer Jay Blevins from Doomsday Preppers will be sharing about surviving active shooter situations, and there will be many more top notch speakers, over 100 tables of survival and preapredness vendors and services, and we’re evening doing ON THE FLOOR special classes, as well as a back to the good old days film on self-reliance will be premiering there!  You can find more info at http://www.sepsllc.com/#!ec-prepcon-v/c129z, or you can follow us on Twitter @sepsllc, or on FB https://www.facebook.com/sepsllc.

Tickets are only $10 per day, $15 for the weekend, and kids 12 and under are FREE!  Come on out and join us for a GREAT weekend of all things preparedness!

Confused as to Next Steps in Preparing? 

The present facts of our current and emerging reality coupled with your gut-level intuition about what is getting ready to happen can no longer be ignored…we are heading for a major life-altering event. You’ve come to the unsettling conclusion that there are too many danger signals to deny.

Rather than waiting until you’re facing fundamental societal change to determine how ready you are, the wise choice would be to join a group that is serious about preparing for an event. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secured location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

Our 50-acre retreat has all of the needs necessary for long-term survival under any circumstances with all of the housing, agricultural, domestic/wild game, and energy technology solutions necessary for thriving and not just surviving.

Who We Are

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks committed to preparing for an event. Many of our membership are former military so we bring that self-discipline and spirit of camaraderie. Skilled medical personnel as well as all of the necessary disciplines for all aspects of a working society are part of our ranks.

Our leadership team, composed of former military,  is guided by a 360+ page operations manual to support our members. We have also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol which has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts.

Our motto is: Plan, Prepare, and Practice. Consequently, we have extensive skills, safety, survival and defensive training sessions with skilled professionals. An extensive list of training topics covers all areas of maintaining and further development of a self-sustaining and secure community that can prosper over time rather than dwindle and become vulnerable.

We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

 

There May Be A Place for You in Our Community

We are seeking additional skills to add to our mix. No anti-government types, militants or racists. We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America. Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as background and criminal checks.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types). We are not “Bible-thumpers” but we do have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs. We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a well-organized, like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application. We start with a phone call first. If we each see a shared vision and compatibility, we will share an extensive list of features within our community that we have barely hinted at in this introduction.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today and we will send you an in depth description along with a link to a video about the group.  If you are still interested, we can discuss requirements.  Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com (sgtprepper2 [at] gmail [dot] com) to request more info,  an application and list of further requirements.

We are committed—are you?

Are you REALLY ready for the Event your intuition warning you about?

  • How ready are you if it happened next month?
  • Have you thought about safety and skills in numbers? We have.

The facts and your intuition about what is getting ready to happen can’t be denied…we are heading for a major life-altering event.

Then join a group that is serious about preparing for an event.  There is safety and skills in numbers. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secure location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

We are an organized multi-family prepper retreat located in central North Carolina.  Our membership comes from Virginia, North Carolina and South Carolina. We don’t live there–we just prepare it for the day we know we will have to live there. We are not sure what will take place or when but we know it will. It is not a matter of if…it is a matter of when.

The 50-acre retreat has a deep well with pristine water (with a backup manual pump), a pond and a fast-flowing creek. Deer, wild turkey and rabbit are abundant. We raise livestock such as rabbits, chickens, goats and ducks.  We have several gardens (raised beds and tilled ground).   We grow food for consumption and medicinal plants as well. We also have a fruit orchard and numerous fruit bushes.  As a back-up, we have been planting natural growing non-cultivated food sources such as tubers, blackberries, etc.  Our objective is to be self-sufficient when we have to occupy our retreat.  We are also constructing a greenhouse to cultivate vegetables, sprouts and seedlings for longer growing seasons.

We have recently added numerous solar panels to the ones we had stored.  We have a dedicated team working on Energy to determine exact power needs.

It is our belief that there is safety in numbers and a wider range of skill sets as well. We feel it is critical to store and prepare together than risk an isolated effort that cannot be defended when social order collapses. We all value our families’ safety enough to collaborate in preparing for that event.

I am a Vietnam Vet who served with an infantry unit as part of five years in the US Army. I have also served as CEO of three successful companies in my career so I know how to organize people and projects.

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks preparing for an event.  Many of our membership are former military.

The retreat includes a small medical clinic as our membership includes several doctors, a RN and an EMT. We are prepared for many medical emergencies or situations.

In addition to the medial staff listed above, our members also include several electrical engineers, an auto mechanic, a teacher, retired infantryman, a competition shooter/fisherman, a seamstress, contractor, a former SWAT member and trained aviation mechanic and assembler. We have formed teams to address security/weaponry, medical care, food production, food preparation, communications, construction and energy.  Each team has a Team Leader and organizational charter.

Our motto is: Plan…Prepare…Practice.   

Our three-person Leadership Team (all former military) sets executive policies and provides operational day-to-day decisions.  Issues that involve long-term implications or significant allocation of resources are bought before the group for discussion and input.  We do not run our organization like a commune or home owners association —but more like a corporate or quasi-military organization.  If you are looking for a pure democracy with extended deliberations and a vote on everything while progress is measured at a snail’s pace… pass us by.  If you are looking for a group to join that you can maintain a passive enrollment, store food with your “name on the list” for “when the balloon goes up”… we are not the group for you.  We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

  • Operational facilities and extensive sustainable survival provisions maintained in a high state of readiness with the services of a full-time caretaker and group projects conducted at regular meetings.
  • Personal and group training in sustainable living skills (gardening, livestock, construction, food preservation/preparation), operational security / defensive skills, and medical/TCCC (tactical combat casualty care) training.
  • Solid relationships between members based on trust, competence, and contributions to the group over an extended period of time. Everyone in the community contributes from their resources and skill sets to make us a stronger group.

We hold monthly Gatherings which are also Skills Development and Retreat Building Workshops one weekend every month. During a typical weekend we conduct numerous training sessions and defense simulations. Firearms and security training is part of every session and members are encouraged to seek out individual firearms training as well.  These workshops include working on developing the retreat as well as developing our skill sets. Many of our members have attended homesteading skill and survival training programs at conferences to improve skills. We have a 360+ page operations manual to support our members.

We also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol that has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts. We have a 25-meter and 125-meter pistol and rifle range and provide training in basic handguns, rifle and shotgun use at every Gathering.  We have several trained instructors.  We also have an extensive CCTV camera system for surveillance with several monitoring stations. Our onsite security is 24/7-365.  We take our security seriously.  After all, if you can’t defend it…it is not yours.  Ours is defensible.

Additional training topics we have presented have included foot patrolling techniques, small unit tactics, first aid and trauma medical care, compass reading and orienting, gardening, battery storage, food packaging, water purification, alternative energy devices, running & gunning, cheese sealing, EMP protection, herbs and homeopathy, essential oils, sanitation, candle making, tactical gear, operating earth moving equipment, solar energy, slaughtering and dressing of domestic livestock, and survival skills, etc.

We have accommodation cabins, RV spaces, a medical clinic, 2 laundry rooms, a well-house with backup manual well pump, a 3-room bath house with showers and laundry facilities, community center, provisions storage area, commercial kitchen and communications center/operations room. We have a large amount of stored water, solar energy, propane supply and wood burning as well. We have prepared for EMP with multiple precautions to include multi-layer nesting of all electronics within Faraday Cages.

We have installed a four-stage air filtration unit (with large bank of deep-cycle marine batteries) for our fallout shelter that can remove 99.99% of the impurities in the event of a NBC or fallout event. Every member has to have a functioning gas mask and fresh filter.  Our fallout shelter is self-contained and able to sustain the community members for weeks, if needed. We also have calibrated radiation monitoring equipment, dosimeters and hazmat suits for clean-up and outside monitoring.

To support our communications center, 5 of our members have Ham licenses.  Our communications center will monitor radio traffic and stay connected with a network of other ham operators when the event occurs. We also have our own internal switchboard system with hard-wired phone system.  As a precaution, we have duplicate equipment for everything—back-ups to back-ups..

The governance bodies are: an Ops Leader, Assistant Ops Leaders (Leadership Team) and a Community Council (made of adult members).

Our members rent space (RV space or cabins) at $250/month to pay for on-site caretaker/security personnel and utilities to man 24-7.  We all share in the development of the community through work every monthly Gathering. We don’t occupy the retreat until an event has occurred. 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 of $750 that is non-refundable. We have one cabin available as well as a several RV spaces (RV has full range of sewer, water and power hook-ups).

We are looking for capable and willing folks to help with physical requirements of post-event such as energy (solar, etc.) patrolling, gardening, wood gathering, hunting, etc. We are also seeking additional skills to add to our mix.  No anti-government types, militants or racists.  We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America.

Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, and a background and criminal check.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types).  We are not “Bible-thumpers” but have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs.

We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

What are their lives worth to you?  Think about the advantages of a well-organized group when it comes to the safety and welfare of your loved ones when everything turns upside down. It is like owning an insurance policy you never want collected or that spare tire you keep in your trunk.

Don’t be caught in your house as the armed gangs are going door-to-door pillaging.

We have been told by several TV production companies that have approached us for filming that we are one of the most organized groups they have come across.  Then why haven’t you seen us on TV?  It is simple…our OpSec and obscurity is far more important than ‘15 minutes of fame.’  We are preppers–not food hoarders or entertainers.

Our family is pretty new to survival prepping and we would like to connect with other new Christian preppers in the Northwestern North Carolina area to brainstorm, share experiences, work together on projects, pray for wisdom and provision, learn and practice skills, fellowship, encourage, etc…..  This may lead to some beneficial relationships in the event of a national or global collapse.  *Note, we are native southerners but do not display or support the confederate flag. ** Only preppers with a clean criminal record, no drug use or abuse, infrequent alcohol consumption, good moral character need contact me.  ***Families with children 10 and under are very welcome as we have a son who will be participating!  **** Homeschoolers particularly welcome!   <<<<<<  If you or your wife and kids are interested in possibly meeting, please contact me on here or through my personal e-mail:    mrsme6th    at    bellsouth   dot   net

The U.S. dollar has been the world’s reserve currency for 94 years, but after losing 98% of its buying power and the world realizing it’s fiat status, it has peaked and its days are now numbered. Once again we’re facing the threat of hitting another debt ceiling. Only this time, China has been dumping US dollar denominated assets at historic levels while Chinese companies have begun reducing the amount of dollars they borrow for international transactions. Steps being taken in preparation for China to become a world reserve currency. If you know your history, wars have always been created when world economies begin to fail.

When the politicians, the talking head “experts” and the MSM tell you to not panic, it’s time to wake the hell up … and probably time to panic. So, is it any wonder that the summer of 2015, yet again, set another record for the sale of firearms in the united States? But what good are weapons when we continue to stay divided by the machinations of the incompetents, which have usurped and altered our form of government? Have we become so ignorant and complacent by our pride, we no longer recognize the threats presented from porous borders? The miscreants that control us are well protected by our children we loan to them through military service, under the guise of patriotism, only to be returned to us either broken or dead. Then they are further persecuted or neglected because they hold the title of Veteran. What type of madness does a person suffer from that pays, in so many ways, for their own demise and that of their children? Is it really anti-government, to be anti-evil and have a distaste for secrecy which breeds corruption? The Scriptures tell us, ” Be wise as a serpent and harmless as a dove.”  But even doves, sensing a source of impending danger, sacrifice their safety to protect their mate and nest… It’s not advocating violence, to put on His armor and stand in defense of His children and creation. When you are not violent by nature, yet, you are labeled a terrorist because of your faith, belief in the Constitution and desire for freedom. A label courtesy of the Demopublican cartel.

Where does your faith really lay when you acquiesce to evil supplanting their traits upon yourselves? Making your trust of one another far below their levels of trust. So far, in fact, we can’t even pull our families, friends or neighbors together to prepare for what’s coming. We have to create posts like this in an attempt to find strangers we can trust. And, that’s no easy task, either.

​Unless you have been living in the trees for the past four decades, you would have seen the mile markers on the way to Fascism/Communism/Marxism (whatever ism you choose). Revealing to you a world bound in secrecy, surveillance, corruption, and lies, culminating into a complete world of civil, moral and economic bankruptcy. If you know what the worlds economy is really built upon, then you know what it will take to survive what is coming and needed to rebuild it after the chaos… So what, you say, I’m ready for it. I’ve got my gold, silver, food, water, tools, weapons and ammo. Bring it on! Yep, you’re ready alright, except for the one thing that will prove to be more precious than any amount of gold you could ever hope to hold. More life saving than all the food storage and medicines you could possibly gather and more valuable than anything you could barter with. Because without it, you’re just another sheep huddled within a stockyard waiting to be singled out and taken to slaughter. Oh yes, listen to the experts, they’ll tell you your survival doesn’t depend on it being there, after all, man has lived without it for thousands of years. But did they? You can have the knowledge of preparing to survive, but having the knowledge does not mean you have the understanding of what will be needed to survive.

There is more and more indisputable evidence coming into focus that is contrary to what you’ve been taught in government controlled schools, which have perpetrated so many lies and illusions. It was once said, ” It’s easier to fool people than to convince them that they have been fooled.” If you still believe that slaves with ropes and wooden skids built the pyramids, a feat that cannot be duplicated even today, then you need to continue on with your own style of preparing. If you don’t swallow that Bovine Excrement, it shows that you possibly may be a thinker and you need to be aligned with other thinkers.

Two things we are finding many are lacking in their attempt to prepare for a multi-event scenario is lack of security and privacy… In a society without total surveillance amid the perceived threats by those in power, it would be a non-issue. But in today’s world it is very much a concern, and we need to become more prudent about what we put online. Face it, we have become 1984 in 2015 and have to come to terms with how we need to proceed in creating safety in numbers. Placing phone numbers, email addresses, locations and a list of your supplies, especially armaments, is considered, in not just my opinion, very poor judgement. These are things that need to be discussed as private as possible, preferably face to face. I’ve read numerous warnings from the admin of this site, stressing concern over two instances I have listed. If anyone should be listened to, it’s those that created this site.

Ever since the internet was released to the world, most people thought nothing  about revealing every detail about their person. They used their full name for their free email, created profiles to accompany them, joined social networks, posted photos of themselves, family, friends, acquaintances, even their locations and where they traveled to. Never once taking into consideration it could be used against them in later days, in order to track them and exploit every aspect of their existence. Only recently, people are beginning to learn they’ve become their own worst enemy, by falling into this now obvious snare of disclosure and apathy. If they would have only taken the time to research and learn where the internet came from, they may have been a little more discreet and less foolish. Which brings me to one of my favorite verses in the Scriptures. Repeated twice, word for word, in the same book, Proverbs. What are the odds? It goes like this, ” A prudent man foreseeth evil and hides himself, the foolish pass on and are destroyed.”  Did I also mention, they are the only places in all of the Scriptures, where the word “foreseeth” appears? If you were to recognize just the wisdom alone contained within those verses and they were written for these uncertain times, then it should be a no-brainier’s thought process to adhere to it.

Paranoia, is when there are no factual bases for fear, Common Sense, obviously, dictates the existence of those facts.
Please keep in mind, we are all about security and privacy. We will not divulge anything more than what our plans are, until we are sure about you and.you are convinced we are on to something… Something most of the so-called experts conveniently left out or minimized the importance of. Send us a private message with any thoughts & contact info and we’ll be willing to discuss more with you.

We are seeking to recruit doctors, veterinarians, surgical assistants, engineers, farmers (agriculture and animal husbandry), mechanics, machinists, fabricators, and communications specialists to be a part of a team from the Northern Virginia, and the surrounding area. Experience in the above areas is preferred but all who are interested will receive full consideration.

In any serious situation, living in the National Capital area has advantages as well as drawbacks. While the brunt of government support capabilities would be brought to bear in the D.C. area for anything ranging from a natural disaster to nuclear or biological terrorist attack, to widespread civil unrest, D.C. is also a large and important strategic target. There are good arguments for both bugging in and bugging out in many but certainly not all of these situations.

We have established and seek to expand a network of individuals and families, who both know each other and interact with one another in person to promote the exchange of ideas, preparedness solutions, as well as the development of several contingency plans to get all participants away from threat areas as necessary. Threats evolve and threat environments are fluid, so the backbone of this group is and will continue to be built upon skilled and cross trained individuals, who are flexible and adaptable, working as a team.

The founding members of this group are former and current federal employees with extensive Military experience. This group is not political or religious in nature. This is not a militia. Any military training or tactics employed by the group will be utilized to mitigate threats and preserve the lives of its members.

The objective of this group is to include experienced, skilled, and beginner level individuals who are interested in being prepared to confront or evade the threats posed to them by events beyond their control. Encouraging in person cooperation between members, exchange of tips and tricks and ideas over electronic media, as well as encouraging the acquisition of the necessary equipment to keep yourself and your family safe, fed, warm and be self sufficient as a team will achieve this objective. In a time of increased threat, this group will pool resources, and act together to get out of the threat area and to safety or remain secure in a static location.

There are no prerequisites for joining, other than the ability to legally own and purchase firearms and being of good moral character. Ownership of firearms is preferred, but is not required at time of joining. Physical fitness of members is preferred; the ability to move quickly, carry weight, and shoot is a necessity. For families this only applies to military age men and women.

Those interested will be asked to meet in person, in a public place, for food or drinks, to discuss membership in the group after a period of communication by phone and email.

Please reach out to me at usmcartychief155 [at] gmail [dot] com if you are interested.

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

Hi Preppers:
I’m new to prepping but not knew to knowing it needs to be an active part of the creation of my new life.
I am 59, single and looking to change that …and also looking for the location i want to move to. Currently in Virginia and am ready to leave it.
I am not dogmatic person, i am actually rather non-violent yet have done some shooting but am not confident. So having mentors or a partner to learn from is critical to a new life centered around like minded others, communication, preparedness, self sufficiency etc.
I am a spiritual and intuitive woman and want to be valued for those qualities as well as prepper minded….maybe more community/self sufficiency oriented.No matter the title or package things are rapidly digressing on planet earth and in america, i want to connected, safe, and happily living mostly off the grid with others. Growing food, maybe creating a business or simply enjoying and creating a lifestyle that works for all involved.
I do find that bringing consciousness, awareness and healing is just as important as knowing how to shoot a gun or can veggies.
My skills: non practicing holistic health practitioner/energy worker/massage therapist, communicator/writer, organizer/logistics, public speaker and creator/creative person and serious animal lover, lol…thinking maybe some kind of animal business could be great on the yet undiscovered land/property.
I am taking the rich dad poor dad real estate seminar and planning on purchasing land via pre and foreclosures at wholesale. Also a plan for income is rental property wheni find my location. I would love to have a partner in this.
I hope i resonate with some out there…

Hello all,

First off, happy 4th of July to all American preppers!

I am a part of a small, Ohio-based prepping network that are looking to extend our membership out to the other mainland US states! (sorry Alaska/Hawaii). We are very organized in our methods of prepping and want like-minded people who can contribute, to come on board!

So some more info…

What are we:

– An Ohio-based prepping network! What does this mean? Basically, we are a group of like-minded prepping individuals who share their knowledge, wisdom and experience with other members of the network. We have our own, private lines of communication to do this.

– What do we do? In ‘peacetime’ we mainly share information and news between one another. The local individuals do meet for prepping meets/range days/beers and we are looking to become more organized (and varied) with our meetings as we grow in size.

– What do we have? Besides the usual prepping resources, we have organization and (hopefully) a growing community! In all seriousness though, we do have a hierarchy. This is formed and enforced through a moderate selection process; each member has an assigned peacetime and post-SHTF role based on their skill set. We have contingency plans, bugout location(s) (working on a few) amongst other things. We pride ourselves in being very organized.

What do we want:

– Likeminded individuals: We do not discriminate based on age, gender, marital status, religion, sexual preference, or anything else you can think of. However, we do select based on experience and there is an interview/selection process as explained below.

– Experienced Preppers: We do have a selection process. This is essentially to prevent freeloaders and ensure that you’re a good fit! We do ask that people applying be actively prepping prior to joining, or have the means to do so after joining. Exceptions are always given on a case-by-case basis but generally we aren’t a group suited for brand new preppers.

– People with niche skills, such as:

  • Medical professionals: Doctors, Surgeons, Nurses, Medics, EMT’s, Combat Medics.
  • Former soldiers/military personnel: Particularly those who have undertaken both training and/or combat roles. Former ‘specialist’ MOS’s are encouraged to apply.
  • Mechanics: Particularly vehicle mechanics.
  • Builders: Especially those with experience building small houses (or similar)
  • Naturists: No, not the people who are naked all the time. We’re looking for people with experience in edible plants, alternative medicine and growing large quantities of food.
  • Electricians/Plumbers: As with the builders, experience with domestic buildings is a plus!
  • Chefs: Anyone with experience storing, preparing and serving food. People with experience in creating home made alcohol also a plus.
  • Farmers/Vets: Anyone with experience in keeping and maintaining the wellbeing of animals. Particularly farm/domestic animals.
  • Blacksmith: Anyone with experience in fabricating and welding.
  • Seamstress: Experience making and repairing clothes.

What we are not:

– A paid membership-based network: We are not ZERT! You will be required to only give up knowledge and experience to become a member. Besides what you spend on your personal prepping, we will never ask you for your hard earned cash!

– A militia: we are not an organization to help you plan your government overthrow. We are about sustainability and community. Yes, we are armed, but are by no means an offensive fighting force. We won’t be going to war with the federal government, teaching you tax evasion or helping you plan the assassination of your neighbor. So if that’s what you want – move along!

– A charity: Our members prep their resources for themselves. We share knowledge and training now. Post-SHTF resource sharing will occur between communities in line with our pre-approved plans.

 

I know I have posted a lot of info, if you think that this network sounds like it could be for you, please leave a comment below, tell us about yourself and leave your email address! I actively monitor this so will reply pretty quickly. Looking forward to seeing whose out there.

– JP
