Hello everyone, I’m a married 31 year old, with three kids and have been an active prepper for a few years now. My wife and I are second amendment active, and 2 of our kids are training in krav maga. We are from vancouver washington, but currently own 2.3 acres in klamath county for emergency purposes. We arnt religious but respect everyone’s background and beliefs. My wife is proficient with growing fruits and vegetables while I am constantly studio wilderness survival in and out of the field. We have worries about an emp man made or natural and economic collapse. We are looking for like minded people that may want to share interests.

My wife and I are interested in meeting other like minded individuals. We currently reside in the Spokane, WA area but would love to relocate to a more mountainous area. We and our 22 year old daughter would be interested in connecting with others and forming or joining a small like minded group. I am an RN with two decades of experience in trauma, emergency, critical care and pre-hospital medicine/nursing. I have held instructor credentials in all of the specific areas mentioned. I am also a martial arts instructor with extensive background in close quarter combat instruction. Both my wife and I raise chickens, ducks, goats and dogs. We have experience with gardening and canning our own food. Our daughter has training as a veterinary assistant and is going to school for vet tech. We have our own travel trailer and food supplies. We have been prepping for several years and enjoy the freedom it gives.

Still thank you for your emails concerning our search))
Preppers or future thinkers have learned to accept we will not be immune to the repercussions of the many possible and certainly some very for sure events heading our way. God says the rains will fall on the just and unjust equally. Notice in some regions the rain is not falling anymore. . . So you do not get a pass on this.
Reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded people has proven to be somewhat of a roller coaster ride. I am learning more and more why so few people ever end up joining together. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns and honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster is very KEY to making it work and staying intact. Also facing the truth that unless all the members pull their own weight and maintain their own self-drive the human nature default of letting other do more begins to creep in. In establishing our priorities we have learned some things, such as we cannot please all the so called preppers all the time and we cannot be all things to all preppers. Oh well.
For us, my husband and I am a happily married and content prepped couple. It is just us two. No children at home, no hidden agendas to drag along grown adult children and their families, no forgot to mention extended family, no possible future mate to be added in, no mentioned later on elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. Honestly we do not plan for the near extinction of all mankind; rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most crisis events, minimize the effects of such events and not become victims during them.
In preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated survival living conditions. From what I see here that is better than most yet not as good as a few others. This is not a contest between preppers for us either. We can and will do more as we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in.
Our more recent step in our plan has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like accomplishments to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some seem to be critical of other preppers who look at things differently which to us says much about them. Others have some veiled mission to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not want to be and have nothing to boot. So if the above might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us *thanks anyway* )) Not being forth right and honest up front is a good way to get cut off.
Through all this we have established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. They already have a retreat location and all we were looking for so we have teamed up with them and they with us. Although our current numbers are few we now have in place the means with no additional building or costs to accommodate many more. Working together it must be accepted that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with no hope.
If you are of the same mind that solid preppers really need each other now more than ever then contact us. If you are a interested (adult ,couple, or family with older children) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for 12-14 hours per day during a critical crisis event at the retreat to stand watch, help with needed chores and do so with a cheerful heart then drop us a line.
So if you sense the urgency to take action, wrap up a plan and put it to rest then ask God if this is something which could be right for you. If so sent us an email back and we will shift off this site to a more private line of communication.

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!

Rebecca  (BTW… Did I mention “Paradise”?? :-) )

I’m looking for individuals who have a similar mindset. I’m a Marine Corps Vet and looking for other Vets. I prefer individuals or strong couples. Children are liabilities, but with a strong couple they could be an asset. If you are out of shape then I’m sorry, I don’t have room for you. I’m looking for people who work well in a team. Leaders are preferable but followers are equally important. If you can’t be a follower, then you can’t be a leader. I’m looking to establish a leadership base with aspirations to branch out and form teams. Preferably people who live within hiking distance of Olympia ( less than 30 miles). If you aren’t willing to do whatever it takes to survive, if you let emotions control your actions, then please don’t respond. Contact me for more info if the above fits you and you’re interested.

Out.

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

My wife and I are Christians and have been preparing. We have also been researching a lot of what is coming and would like to work with someone who is like-minded that possibly has land (preferably east in the Cascades or further east) that a bunker can/is built. I personally do not see any way around what is coming if one does not have an “UNDERGROUND” Bunker! If you think you can be a part of this then please contact us at shihtzu.craze (at) gmail

Thanks

Charles/Vicki

My wife and I are looking for like-minded individuals, couples, groups, etc. that are SERIOUS about preparing for what is coming – and coming soon! We have been and are working diligently every day in preparing but we also know that our chances of survival greatly increase when like-minded people pool together our efforts! We currently live on the Kitsap Peninsula but are interested in individuals, couples, groups, etc. from Western & Eastern Washington!

If you believe that we can work together towards a common goal, then please feel free to contact us at shihtzu.craze (at) gmail (dot) com

As more recently mentioned we are a happily married prepped couple. No baggage, no children grown up or not and no others in tow. We have put in the research time, acquiring effort and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of emergency living. From what I see here better than most yet not as good as a few others. We can and will do more as we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in.
Our more recent goal now has been focused around meeting with others to pool our hard work and resources with their like results to then increase all our combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. Some are still going their own individual ways seeming not willing to risk getting closely involved with similar preppers. Some are just critical of other preppers they have met which to us says much about themselves.

To be honest we do not feel we have the luxury of time to dilly dally and wait and see if other people’s plans or hopes ever happen. We do know this though, it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with people but we believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with no hope.
Since we had been posting we wished to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group working together we have received several emails concerning just this. As per the goal of wanting results and not dreams and ridiculous expectations from people we are now building a long term relationship with a group up here. Of course we are all are working out some things which is always expected. That will never change, so what else is new? We will not waste time in life like some others kicking the can down the road looking for the “perfect situation”. If you are interested in all this then contact me. But please do not do it to *network* or whatever. This is not some social media topic to me. I just do not understand how that will profit us.
If you are of the same mind that we really need each other more now instead of still being alone next year wanting our own ways, pointing fingers and condemning other preppers and clutching at wishful plans to see if they maybe someday will pan out then- give this a chance.

Again thank you all for the emails about this )

From my previous posting as I am still learning here. As stated I am happily married, so no I am not a single woman prepper with two years of food and supplies. Our two year supplies are for each of the two of us. We have no children or family baggage along this subject line. We both can defend ourselves and our belongings. Since we had stated we wished to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group working together we have received several emails concerning this.

We have now visited with some various regional preppers along these lines and now we are building a long term relationship  with a group up here. We do not waste time in life and also feel we might not have the luxury of licking the can down the road. They liked us because we had actually done something for ourselves which showed initiative and accomplishment. We like them because they also have backed up their talk with results. We are happily working through somethings which always arise when starting out working together. That is just daily life. This does not change our desire to still meet others with a solid list of accomplishments. If we were at all honest about any of this we would all realize there are so very few of us around and we all need to adjust, give and take and work with each other. It is not a competition as some pursue just the simple understanding it will take more than one or two of us spread all over the place.

To mention again, due to some emails I have gotten we will not risk working with people who have not fulfilled some long duration of supplies and do not work with surviving of the wilds as berry pickers perfecting their bush crafting skills either. Gather wild berries is a great side dish to a real meal. Again I do not wish to seem harsh but so far few have expressed any serious progress in prepping and the desire to pool together when they contact us so perhaps this will save us both some time?

If you agree we need each other and have gotten it done so to speak just send something to,

I still see a lot of people starting out on the site and that is great. Good fortune in the days ahead.

I posted last month and received several replies. Thank you.

I sense I should clarify some points from my last posting as I am learning here. First I am happily married, so no I am not a single woman prepper with two years of food and supplies. We have no children or concerns like that either. We jointly have two years for both of us. Second we both can defend ourselves and our belongings. Next we wish to team up with some others in the region up here to pool resources, skills, over lapping supplies and be ready as a group, then if the need arises stage ourselves together in one agreed upon location. I am not interested in loners.

To be clear due to inquires I have gotten we will not risk working with people who have not fulfilled some long duration of supplies and do not work with berry pickers perfecting their bush living skills either. Anyway I do not wish to seem harsh but so far no one has expressed any serious progress in prepping and the desire to pool together when they contact us so perhaps this will save us both some time?

Just private message me or send something to cindygirl [at] hush [dot] com

I guess from reading some of the postings here I have been doing so called prepping for some time now. So far I have accumulated enough supplies to last myself for about two years. I can also defend my preps. Right now I am just searching around sites to network with and maybe join with other people like me. At this point in time to only to explore the possible compatibility of working together. Reaching out from Newport, Wa. If you are interested in any way shape or form leave some contact information and I can email you. Kiss.

Looking for like minded people.  I am a prepper/survivalist in the vancouver area. Moved here 3 years ago would love to meet up with more people. Also I’m a great personal trainer. Contact me if your interested.

Oct 132014
 

Hi, I’m looking for either an existing group that I would be able to join (or at least get to know to see if I’m capatible) or people interested in starting a group.

I’m married with 2 kids and am active duty military (over 20 years).  I have a lot I can bring to the table with regards to security, self defense, urban / tactical engagement, crisis leadership and management, etc.  I’ve been prepping seriously for only about 18 months.

let me know, and please feel free to ask me any questions you have about me or my experience either via PM or email @ pax_school [at] yahoo [dot] com

I’m pseudo-new to prepping.  I’m looking for a group of like-minded people that may want to meet up every other week or month and kind of bounce ideas off each other on what they’ve learned or picked up that may be beneficial to prepping.  First, a little about me so you can see where I’m coming from:

I have a daughter and a wife.  My daughter, who is 2, was diagnosed with congenital hypothyroidism at birth and she requires daily medication for the rest of her life.  THIS is my main motivation for being prepared.  We’ve been able to refill her prescription 5-10 days early and any pills we have left over goes in our storage area.  I’ve got about a 3 month supply for her and it’s growing.  This has gotten me thinking about being a prepper.  Unfortunately, we live in a condo so there’s not much storage we can do.  I do, however, have each vehicle stocked with a bug[-out bag, weapon, portable radio, and med kit.  We also have about a 3 month extra supply of dehydrated food stuffs and a big ol tote carrier full of survival supplies.  What i’m wanting to mainly find out is more about food storage like canning, making jerky etc….Also, it’d be nice to learn from someone who has experience with enhanced water filtration or maybe some knowledge about edible plants in our area, etc…..I’m basically here to learn.   If anyone is interested or knows of a realistic group, shoot me an email.  Thanks!!!

Hi, I have searching and looking for a category that I fit in, and none seems to fit me. So I am posting what I am looking for or maybe start. First , I cant find any groups or discussions  or anything in the washington state areas of Kirkland, Bellevue, Redmond, Kenmore, woodinville ares. If I am not looking in the right place and someone knows something, Please point me in the right Direction. I am a Single Christian parent household with two grown children and one small. In the Last year or so we have all talked about how as a family we would like to be prepared for an emergency whether it be Nature or Human that has brought it on.  I know the things I would like to do to prepare but finances pose a huge problem in that area as it a one income support. I have backpacks packed for each person in-case we need to leave house , I have bins in cars in-case, weather or breakdown. I have some supplies in my house but not by any means adiquette   or to maintain 4 people. I do alot of reading on the things I need to do and try and sort out what I can one at a time. I am in process of buying a dehydrator for fruits and vegis and want to learn how to do that, also I have been reading about canning and want to do that but am hoping to find people to help me or teach and guide or learn together. I wanna talk about water storage , rain barrels and how to do all that in a rental house. I feel most Prepper’s own their homes and modify them to meet there needs. Are there any Renters out here that prep and what are your suggestions? I wanna take a gun safety class and learn how to shoot, are there other’s out here in my area that wanna do that to but don’t’ wanna go it alone or are you seasoned or qualified to teach? start a class for New preppers or point the direction. I have lots of questions and my extended family thinks I am crazy and my friend circle is small and not intrested in preparedness as I try. I would like to hear from others in my area and find or start a group. Thanks you can email me at adida316 [at] frontier [dot] com

I live and work in the western portion of the Redoubt, because of the nature of prepping and OPSEC , it’s very hard to make contact with like minded people here. Was wondering if anyone else is interested in Email correspondence.. Just looking for like minded people who live and work here in the last stronghold of America.. If you live in Eastern Oregon, particularly the John Day/ Pendleton/ Hermiston/ Umatilla areas, or Southeastern Washington, particularly Benton,Franklin, Walla Walla, Columbia Counties.. lets Chat and compare notes and progress.

We are a family of four who are looking to start a small group of like minded folks to form a small support network just in case the day does come where we would have to “bug out”. Ideally, a group of 15-20 people that live in Snohomish County.

We are a couple, both 50, and married for 30+ years (childhood sweethearts). We have 2 kids, 12 and 20. Both are great kids and we are considered “good people” by most that know us. We are far from being hardcore survivalists; however, we know that we should be prepared just in case the SHTF. We are not gun nuts, but we have a few firearms for home self defense purposes. We also know that no mattered how prepped you are, survival for a suburban family will be difficult.

We are looking for folks with families like us, but singles are okay too. Age is open as well and all skill sets are welcome. So what would be different? We want to be part of a group that understands that survival does not have to be dog eat dog. That good people can come together in an organized manner for the betterment and survival of the group as a whole. We are not motivated by religion or politics, and could care less about the color of your skin or your gender or orientation. We want to be part of a group that can work together in trying times and who can, as a group, circle the wagons when needed.

We would like the group to meet and communicate regularly to prep as a group. But as important, to get organized a head of time.

Ideas are welcome…………

Natural Event Survival (The Basic 5 Human Needs)
Saturday, March 15, 2014

2:00 -4:00
Elmer’s Restaurant – Woodburn
255 North Arney Road, Woodburn, OR

Please RSVP:  PDX [dot] Preppers [at] yahoo [dot] com

It doesn’t matter where you live or even how much money you have, there are five basic human needs to be met. These needs are water, food, shelter, energy and security. It doesn’t matter if everything is going perfectly and everything is going your way, or if all heck is breaking loose around you, these five things need to be met.

We prepare now with those five needs in mind, so that if “It” does start to hit the fan, our families are taken care of and we don’t have to try and meet them in a time of crisis. This not only takes care of our family, it makes it so that there are more supplies available to meet the needs of those not as prepared.

I am still looking for like minded Preppers on Whidbey Island. This seems like an excellent location short of nuclear war. The Naval Air Station is a primary target. If there are any of you out there we should organize before it becomes a real OPSEC issue. Our personal security is not such that we can’t share ideas or train together or as a group. For those who understand what I’m saying, good. For those who don’t, sorry but you will make good wool. Let us make this work.
