Thank you for your emails concerning our ongoing joint mission here, they keep coming ))
We believe preppers tend to be “future thinkers and planners” having learned to accept we will not always be immune to the repercussions of the many possible and certainly some very for sure events heading our way. Life and the world are in a fluid state and God stated; the rains will fall on the just and unjust equally. Funny thing so does History and it repeats itself when you review it.
For my husband and myself we have been reaching out to try to meet other similar prepper minded and equipped people and this 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. So few have really done anything from thinking and planning to then actually doing something. It has become very apparent that having similar thought through concerns, actions and results only then will develop the honest expectations of living and surviving together through a disaster. Also facing the truth that unless all the members can and will pull their own weight and maintain their own self-drive then the inevitable human default nature of letting others do more while they continue to do less begins to creep in.
My husband and I am a married 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 non prepper future mate to be added in, no mentioned later on about elderly parents and no plans to save humanity as some kind of seed stock for the future. That right there separates us from about 90% of prepper posters and talkers. They often want to save people who will not make the effort to save themselves. Sorry, we like staying alive so that does not fly with us.
To be honest, we do not care to plan for the near extinction of all mankind; rather we plan to simply increase our odds at surviving most historical crisis events, minimize the effects on each of us as per of such events and not become victims of them. You fill in the blanks what those events could be. So in preparing to do just that we have put in the research time, required effort, financial investments and only then the results and have provided for our own needs for around a couple years of isolated but very comfortable survival living conditions. Not in some four season nomadic tent existence eating twigs and berries either. From what I see here that is better than most yet still not as good as a few others.
Being we search daily for wisdom then as preppers we grow and we continue to learn about the areas we still lack in. It never fully ends, in fact just the maintenance is huge and that we have accepted but we are darn close ;-). 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 overall combined odds. This has brought us into contact with all sorts of people. As mentioned above some types have veiled missions to drag along their extended families and friends who none of which are preppers, do not wish to be and have nothing to offer to boot. Yet others are planning to open their location to the needy and desperate just to be over run and become like them in no time. Then as usual so many have put aside so little yet expect so much and on top of that still cannot afford to get it done yet want to join with others who already have? Some offer their labor for room and board? Funny thing there is, the rest of us here will be laboring just as much while providing for our daily needs (room and board) so come again?? That just seems so not fair and not right to, so where does that leave you?
So if the above 90% might sound like you, then please do not waste either of our lives by contacting us (thanks anyway). But if you are both willing and capable to be a big plus to a group then go for it. Through all this we have now established a relationship with some other local preppers in an organized group. They already have a quality retreat location like we were looking for so we have teamed up with them and they wanted us and what we have done. That our thinking and planning was then matched by action. Thus they saw us as a big plus. Our current numbers are growing slowly because we all actually have standards, we do have in place the means with no additional building or group costs to accommodate many more. In other words this is group and retreat location is not a dream, a plan or a hope. It is a reality. In return when working together it must be accepted by all that it requires bending, adapting and changing to work with other people. We believe in the end it provides for a much better result rather than being alone with just ideas, plans and no hope. This final group involvement piece of our plan now being put into place has also freed us up from searching and now lets us truly enjoy daily life.
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 single, couple or family with older children) unencumbered with specific personal issues which would prevent you from being fully available for about 12 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.
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. We have private quarters for you and the entire infrastructure like water, sanitation, heat and to meet your needs. Basically you provide the rest. Sent us an email back and we will shift off this site to a more private line of communication. You will be required to explain what you have accomplished, no exceptions. If you live [east of the Washington Cascades over to the western edge of Montana| as posted under categories then you will be considered. Otherwise move

We still see a lot of people starting out on the site and that is great. Do not give up and look to team up with others!
