All,  Some great posts here, glad I found this forum.  I live in Northern California, East Bay and looking for similar folks in the area.  I was born and raised in California and saddened to see the state of our State.  I am considering to move up to Seattle area or get a Fall Out Location in the Sierras.  I am Married with 3-kids and looking to see if there are others concerned with the area.

With the political situations getting more intense, protests increasing and a large number of convicts being released in the streets (thanks to Brown) a bad situation is bound to happen. Looking to get a sense of what other are doing here in California or whether they are looking to move out.  I do want to be prepared for worst case scenarios, but at the same time need to be near a tech hub for work. Further, I do want to have my home base near a city dwelling for the University Systems for my kids.

One thought is to move to Seattle and get a FOL in Idaho.  Comments / thoughts welcome!

I am a retired , 68, single in relatively good health. I currently live in the Seattle area. Bad area for survival, overdue mega quake, big volcano overdue for eruption (Rainier), crime, and the worst of all lots of Liberals. I’m not big on joining groups. I would just like to buy a place where my neighbors are of  like mind and help each other out. I am not flush with money but maybe I can work something out. If you are a scammer  forget it. I  will review everything with a lawyer and have title insurance. I’m not a bible thumper or a church goer but I do believe in the Book, although my understanding of it is not what you would call main stream. I would like to find a young lady to share the journey with. So ladies if you want to relocate, and want male companionship this may be your golden opportunity. 

[Trogg, read the rules on posting here – http://www.preppergroups.com/about/]

There are no mosquitos capable of carrying zika in either Washington State or Idaho, just something to consider. I want to be as self-sufficient as possible without getting too carried away. I visited Priest River last fall and that is the area I think I would like to live.  In the past I lived in vans and I lived in my pickup truck camper for five years do to poverty. At one time I guess I  was kind of a hippie. With that kind of past, I would not freak out when the going gets tough. I am thinking of making a trip to Priest River soon or possibly Sand Point also. Maybe we could meet for coffee. If you just want to talk that is Ok too. I would like to make new friends in the area. trogg90 [at] yahoo [dot] com

Hello, we are located 2 hours north of Spokane. Originally from Seattle, moved here years ago to get away from the heavy population. We are looking for another family or individuals to join together with us in the event of a crisis.

We have housing infrastructure in place, gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. We would also be interested in hearing from other groups that are out there.

Also those in Idaho or Montana feel free to reply but please only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Newport WA.

Please private message us if you are interested and we can exchange email addresses. Thanks

Hello everyone,

I am a 22 year old male who currently resides in Portland.

I have come to realize how truly dangerous this city is and I don’t to be here when some cataclysmic event occurs in the probable near future. We’re at the brink of an all out war with China/Russia, our economy is on the cusp of a collapse and the media seems to have brainwashed the masses into thinking everything if OK.

Going off grid seems like the only likely scenario at this point that could work. Property seems pretty cheap in parts of Oregon and Washington. Ideally, I would like to find 5-10 like minded preppers and attempt to purchase some land and prepare for what is to come.I also am open to joining a group or am open to any ideas that you might have, but that is the general direction I’m heading towards.

I don’t have any special skills, but I am physically capable and most importantly, spiritually and mentally prepared. I am a believer in God and my faith is very important to me. It is a requirement that you are a believer in God as well. I have guns and ammunition for myself as well as some basic survival tools, but I am obviously far from prepared.To be upfront, I will have approximately $5k-10k  to put towards this property. If I can find enough people, it could be a lot less! I would imagine it’s going to get easier and easier to find deals on land as well. I have found a few myself that seem very undervalued.

Please reply if you’re interested! I promise I’ll respond back. Things are getting worse and worse each day around the world and it’s only a matter of time before something happens here. I’m looking to relocate ASAP, but realistically I’d need about 1-2 months to prepare everything and get my funds in order. I would like to be completely off grid by election time, if this Country makes it that far…

Hello, my name is Kevin. I am a 30 year prepped moved here from Texas and im looking for local preppers to create resources for our kind. Would like to have get togethers over coffee or what ever and create a prepper community to exchange knowledge and skills for preparing for our future as a group. Having trusted strength in numbers is better than being a lone wolf.email me jesusandcamping at gmail dot com if you are interested.

We are a family of 9 just listening to God telling us to get ready for something big.   My husband and I live with our 6 children and my mother in a small cabin (my husband built in 2 weeks) on 20 acres near Newport WA.  We recently got a milk cow but can’t make cheese lol. We are just looking for like minded people that might want to help us build a little community of preparedness up here.  We would like to get to know you before we involve anyone in what we are trying to accomplish but could meet somewhere to eat or for coffee to talk and get to know each other first??  We just want friends that wont think we’re nuts, because we are very different from the world.  You will have to meet us to believe us. No joke.  We want to meet people like us that might be able to help us make cheese lol farm, garden, secure the land and in return we have maybe land for you to utilize for living, prepping, growing, ect… we are mainly seeking knowledge, friendship and Christ-like people to create what WE believe the bible was talking about when it mentioned ‘the Church’. We are tired of traditional powerless church. We want to activate His power through obedience and the number one commandment. LOVE

We are a family of six (four teen/young adult children) living in the mountains a couple of hours north of Spokane.  Looking to make a few connections to share info and possibly projects.

About us – we are conservative Christian family with conservative politics.  We are not heavy conspiracy theorist types.  We do not belong to a group (yet).  We simply want to be more self sufficient and extremely well prepared for any troubled times that may lie ahead. We made the move from living in suburbs all over the USA to a rural location miles away from the nearest small town.  Strong supporters of traditional, conservative interpretations of the US Constitution including the 1st, 2nd and 4th amendments.

Our home and land is constantly under revision with several current projects underway or completed, and many projects planned.  We have clean water, great hunting, large gardens and we have started out on livestock  (successfully) with raising chickens and turkey.  Getting ready for goats (2016) and eventually cattle.

I am looking to connect with people who have working/hands on knowledge of the following:

  1. Gardening and food production
  2. Communications – Ham Radio for home, vehicle and compact portable units.  CB radio and general comms.
  3. Vehicle maintenance – I like working on older trucks but its a learning process as I am not a mechanic.  Heavy interest in older trucks due to resistance to EMP.  Plus, they’re just plain fun.
  4. Emergency power generation
  5. Gunsmithing/builds/scenario based target practice
  6. Home security and defense

We do not bring people to our home until we know them well.  Would prefer to establish communication via email first, then possibly meet at a public location like a restaurant.  This is simply networking and exchanging knowledge, but we have also exchanged time on family projects with people we’ve gotten to know.

We are also willing to share our experiences of moving out of the suburbs to a rural area.  We made a few mistakes and also have successes.

Let me know if you are interested in connecting. Thanks!

We are reaching out to our fellow preppers who wish to pull together a small viable off the grid community in Idaho County. All the necessary preparations have been made to rapidly make this a reality. Your complete dedication and attention to this endeavor is required.

Only serious, and well prepared individuals or families need reply. Looking forward to hearing back from you to discuss the finer details off line.

We have owned land here (SW Stevens County) for awhile but only recently relocated from Texas. Currently, we are steadily transforming our land into a self sufficient homestead. We are a family of 5. I am a entrepreneur and general contractor and my wife is in higher education. We are looking to meet other God fearing good people in our area who share an interest in homesteading and prepping and perhaps some Bible study. Please contact me privately if this interests you.

I am starting this post again in an attempt to start a group of preppers  to train with and share ideas.  It does not matter if we never meet or not, right now it’s about dialog.

There is no way that there is no organized preppers or MAGs on the island.

I will try to update this post everyday  with information/updates.

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

I am a single 22 year old female looking for a group or tribe to join. I have a smart, young German shephard that I am currently training with to run long distances

I just left my job, in search of a group of like minded individuals, preparing for the times ahead.

I would like to note that I am a Christian, and I believe that following Gods commands and trying to walk like Jesus, as a disciple, is the calling of my life.

Although I have little money to offer, I have much more.

I am very strong, and  quick to learn. I grew up hunting, fishing, camping, backpacking, hiking, boating, snowboarding, and getting lost. I am comfortable and thrive in nature. I love to build, serve others and the community, garden, teach, read, write, play and perform music, and share the love of Christ. More than all of those gifts, I have been gifted with an incredible faith of assuredness and optimism.

I am hoping to travel out of California very soon, towards a land and group dedicated to preparing for the worlds upcoming state.

If you have any ideas for me, comments, suggestions, or questions, feel free to write me, and I will try to get back to you as soon as I can.

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

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.

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.

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

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!

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!!!
