My name is Chris and i’m new to prepping I’m open to advice and sugestions.
I am Looking to relocate and join a prepping group. I can help with many things and I’m good at junk picking and making things work that wouldn’t normally be used for the reason I use them for! I don’t have money or hardly anything to go with me, but I am only asking to help and a place to live for my help!
Looking to network, partner, prep, socialize with other preppers in the Greater Chicagoland area (up to five hour drive from Chicago Loop). Have some land and currently in the planning and designing stage of a large 130′x 30-50′ organic garden in the west suburbs. Have access to highest level of combat, anti-personnel, survival, defense, offense tactical training available through contacts in MARSOC. Just received my FIOD and will start training soon.
Originally from Wheaton, currently living on Chicago’s NW side near Diversey exit. Christian, straight, married 36 y.o. male with 1.5 y.o. daughter. Just getting started with this whole concept and starting from scratch.
Why I Am Prepping:
This country is getting more and more screwed up. FDA approved poisoning of food by Monsanto, Obama grabbing guns and instituting Islam into our country and removing Christianity from schools and society, FEMA and DHS stealing our liberties one by one – this is all nuts. I’m a normal guy and don’t think the world will end at midnight but I do believe that there are “too many something’s wrong” going on not to at least make some sensible preparations just incase SHTF and the world becomes FUBAR overnight or over time. I am NOT anti-government. I am looking to meet balanced, practical people who are serious about making a long term commitment to this. Racist, radical, lazy, anti-religious, all talk individuals are not welcome to contact me. Old or young educated or not, rich or poor, black or white, I don’t care. Must be of high moral character and have no criminal background. Don’t have to be perfect but people of questionable integrity will not be welcome.
Looking to meet a few people that are into prepping. Fill free to email me at wisingledad_74 [at] yahoo [dot] com Things are starting to look not so good so no time to play around.
We are 2 OIF war veterans looking for like minded preppers in search of strength thru numbers or maybe just in search of sharing knowledge. We are both experianced combat veterans and have both extensive weapons knowledge and survival skills. We dont know it all but we do know a lot. We’d like to find individuals groups or families looking to learn and or share ideas or resources
Looking for prepper group in this area.
My Wife and I and our 3 boys our at the point of our prepping to get with a group. I’m Ex-militay (was in the Army or 8 Years). Recon is the name of the game. So when it come to survival, I know a thing or two. Also work as a EMT/Firefighter. Right know im learning bushcraft survival.We aslo have a strong faith in the bible. If anyone has the same mind-set as we do please give us a shout.
I’m currently in the process of closing on 40 acres of useable land/woods in northern MN, about 3 days walk from Minneapolis. It is surrounded by Federal land and has a lake close by and a trout fishing stream close by.
My Goal: To build a 100% off the grid location using solar/wind/possible water as power. Working shower and running water in the kitchen with septic. However, the toilet would be a humanure compost system.
I have quite a bit to bring to the table in regards to ability to cultivate crops and raise livestock. I have 3 solid members devoted to defense, all self defense instructors. I may also possibly have a 10yr police veteran. Where I am lacking, is medical. I’m looking for people with real life medical skills (doctors, dentists, military medics, etc).
Long term plans are to dig a root celler as well as bury a shipping container to store preps in.
If you are interested in this, please let me know!
We are looking to meet with people who see the way things are going and need to prepare for the days ahead. We are American Christians and believe in the constitution. If you know of any groups already meeting close by please respond to my post
in HIS Service
Active and realistic individuals and groups still interested in mutual assistance can PM us. We’ll set up an in-person area wide meetup and update some needed secure offline planning.
Ok so I’m new to the prep work so I need to learn the ins and outs the what’s needed and note and how to get started on everything for my children and I help me please
i live in kenosha. im looking for good moral prepers to meet and form a group.
I am located in Kenosha County but am originally from north central WI. I lived in that arear for about 30 years. I am Catholic. I grew up camping, hunting, and fishing. Although the hunting thing never stuck with me I do enjoy target practice. The camping and fishing however did stick and I enjoy both as often as possible. I grew up in the country and worked on some farms, learned canning and preserving from my mother and outdoor skills from my father.
I am interested in finding others in my area that have good morals, values, and are interested in meeting and discussing the formation of a group. Income level, race/ethnic background, age, politics, religion, and sex does NOT matter. Nor does the level of preparedness at this point
Seeking Fellow Preppers in southwest Wi. or La Crosse area…anybody around? contact me ancientarmoredfish at yahoo dot com
I am looking for like minded people in northern Wisconsin. I’m not new to the prepper mentality I’ve started saving food and have weapons and ammo. I am a prior Infantryman. I’m currently in Bayfield county and willing to drive. I can be reached by email dpharris1 [at] live [dot] com.
Hello, my family and I are in search of a group of preppers in the Appleton Wisconsin area. I have been learning skills for years and work in the HVACR mechanical field.
We are currently canning, storing buckets of food and purchasing dehydrated foods. We have started a seed bank. I have been a hunter most of my 39 years and prefer long range targets with a rifle of which I have several as well as hand guns. We are learning Target Focus Training and also plan to go to Front Sight in Nevada for specialized weapons training this upcoming March.
My wife and I both have much to offer but we both still also have much to learn. I have recently completed my first BOB and we are working on hers now. I think I still need to shed some weight in my BOB but it is a work in progress. We are of the Christian Faith and have 6 children. As far as a bug out vehicle, I am looking into a used military H1 Hummer with a hospital back.
My family works hard and do not want to burden anyone but we realize that in the event of things to come, there is safety in numbers. I have been trying to get my extended family into prepping but they all think that I am paranoid or nuts! Currently I am trying to sell my house. My plan is to find a place on the outskirts of town with a few acres and have a home with some room to plant food and prepare.
If we are of interest to you or if you think that we could collaborate please reply to this post! :) Thank you and stay safe!
Hello im new to the forum im looking for like minded people in northern wi i am currently in bayfield wisconsin im a prior infantry marine and have a wife and two boys drop me a line im into shooting, hunting, fishing and food storage.
I,m interested in meeting like minded people near where I live.And to see where it goes from there.I am a 16 year Army vet with a 11b(infantry) and a 12b(combat engineer) MOS(military ocupational specality).I am now a state of wisconsin licensed electrician.With a strong building trades and mechanical background.I also spend time with the Boyscouts where i teach land nav and some first -aid.I am new to the prepping thing. But I think I have a pretty good start. Would like to sit down and talk to others and here there ideas and concerns.
I would like to know if there are any singles out there in central Wisc, that are preparing for world events and getting together at regular intervals, it would be great to see how individuals are preparing since they arent couples, if not would there be an interest in staring a group for such?
I realize the importance of secrecy, however if you were gauranteed you and your location would be concealed, is there anyone in the Northern Wisconsin area that would be willing to be interviewed by the news. I believe we have an ergency to make people aware and connect now! There can be power in numbers. I just feel too many will suffer if someone doesnt get the ball rolling. We can’t wait for the media to help us, we have to help ourselves. However if we are careful we could use the media to bring about a real awareness at a level that could be very beneficial to us all.
I have 8 years of experience as a combat medic. I hold current certifications. I know my stuff. What I don’t have is a group of like-minded individuals in southern Wisconsin interested in a mutually bennifical relationship.
Would like to attend or start meeting groups in the Northern Wisconsin area
I’ve been “prepping” little by little over the past couple of years and have been learning a lot from message boards like this. I would like to meet other preppers in or around the Fond du Lac area to share and learn from.
Also, my wife is resistant to this and thinks I’m “crazy” so I thought that perhaps if she were to meet others (especially wives/women) she could learn of the concept from another POV. This could possibly make the homestead that much more “peaceful” as well as prepared. My email is: djvores(at)gmail(dot)com should you wish to get in touch. Thanks!
From the Minnesota (metro area).
Personal Philosophy (to make sure we are like-minded): I do not believe a world ending event is what we are preparing for. In my opinion, a world ending event is exactly that. One would need to be more lucky than prepared to only survive a short amount of time any how. In other words, I’d rather run to the comet and see one last hoorah. With that said, I think there is world-changing events every single day. Just not usually in your back yard. Much of Africa has been in an apocalyptic state for–well forever. If I were in Greece right now, I would be looking to not be in Greece right now. Power grids can fail and no one in America is prepared but a few. This should be one concern of ours. It would not be the end of the world but riots happen for lesser events. People get crazy for lesser things than not having food immediately available to them. But people also come together in times of great need always giving us hope in humanity. We should all want to help by being one of those leaders that is prepared so we can help those who were not. If you agree we would be on the same page. (Again, I am not motivated by surviving extinction level events or looking to start a militia here.) Our common goal will be to create a network of individuals that don’t need to be persuaded that it is possible America might not have the rich comforts we are all so accustom to. Self sufficiency is a key goal. We should be convinced that many people are starting to recognize that the need for self sufficiency is important and that our future as a country lies in our ability to be self-sufficient individuals, communities, states, and country. If you would like to open discussion via email please email me at aacres00 [at] hotmail [dot] com. Main areas of interest include: Northern and Central Wisconsin, Minnesota, Montana, Alaska, and South Carolina. These are places with potential refuge thus far.
I would like to talk to other preppers in the area to exchange ideas. I’m former USMC and a Christian. You can always improve back-up plans.
Hello, First time poster. I am looking for someone (ideally) within an hour walk of the Madison/Fitchburg border (by the Home Depot on Midvale/Verona road) to bug out with to get outside the city and surrounding burbs. Would love to car convoy if gas is available, or head out on foot if need be. Here goes my attempt at selling myself… eagle scout, phd student(science), Gardner, wild food forager, hobby wood worker, newly licensed ham, mid 20′s and I work out every day (P90X, run/bike into work daily), Christian (reformed), married w/kid on way. PM me if interested. Not interested in staying in Madison (especially my neighbourhood…) in SHTF scenario.
