WE HAVE RELOCATED TO WISCONSIN ……  Our family (of 4 possibly 7) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with.  We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring.  We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.

Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live  in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.

In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me.

We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.

Our family (of 4 possibly 5) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with.  We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring.  We wish to relocate to Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, N. Nebraska, but preferably somewhere out West since it is less populated (Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, North or South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah). We are choosing not to remain in Tennessee. We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.

Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live  in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry.

I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me. We currently live just outside of Chattanooga, but it is just over the mountain in our backyard, and those folks are going to be heading somewhere to try to survive….

We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. We have no roots here, and have been looking to leave for a while, but have stayed just because it’s where my kids have always gone to school. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do.

Ammo manufacturing company owner looking for a group in central WI . I’m located in  Barron looking at the way things are going it don’t look good. I’m looking for a group that might take a small group in . In that group is me with my equipment 4 grand kids and 3 other adults with mechanical,carpentry, heating and air. The ladies are good at gardening amount other things ie  child care houskeeping. Besides ammo loading equipment I bring shooting skills. Along with my rifles and handguns and bows.

It has been posted that depending on who gets in office there will be no new permits for loading ammo or selling firearms issued next year. They won’t take your 2nd ammendment rights away just will make it so you can’t buy any of them.

I think children are the future so we must protect them at all cost.

We have a small group in Central Wisconsin.  We are looking for members.  We have a farmette that has so much to offer.  We plan to come together once the SHTF with our farmette being everyone’s BOL.  We do have monthly meetings to go over things, learn/teach new things, and keep each other in the loop about how our individual stockpiles are progressing.

Hello all,

Looking to meet like minded individuals or group reps about joining up in the McHenry/Lake County Illinois area. Southern WI also good for me.
Long time Prepper, Christian, Conservative looking to find at least somewhat like minded individuals or a group to collaborate with or join. Seems like time is getting short on the clock and there is safety in numbers, so ready to take the final plunge in my prepping journey and not be an isolationist.

Look forward to hearing from you!

Evening all.  We have a small group of people that conduct training exercises in Northern Wisconsin. We have a Facebook and Youtube channel that shows some of our material, called Badger Security and Survival. If you guys could swing over there and check it out and drop some feedback that’d be great. We believe in community and the best way now for us is to hopefully spread some information. The more prepared everyone is, the better chance we have of surviving. Thanks!

As people preparing for the future, and members of this forum, we all understand that one of the keys to survival is a community. Someone we can rely on and trust, share information with and to ultimately ensure the future of ourselves and our families. My brother and I have come to realize this and are looking to build onto the small community we have already started. We have about 20 or so people with family members. Each of us bringing different skills to the table in a collective we hope will carry us through anything that would happen. The location we have is in Northern Wisconsin with an abundance of natural resources and plans to install items to help with sustainability. We meet up three or four times a year to assist and train ourselves in the case of a situation. Our training includes, firearms, basic survival, team movements, reaction drills, general gear inspection and making plans for the next time. We are not militant types, anti-government or anything along those lines. We are moral, American value driven community of men and women looking to ensure the safety and the security of our families future. I wouldn’t say this a recruitment post, but more of a general call for fellowship and the open flow of communication. If anyone is interested feel free to respond or private message me. I’d be happy to answer any questions. Look forward to hearing from you.

I have lived in the Milwaukee area nearly all my life and have begun to take the idea of prepping rather seriously. Given the current (real) state of the economy and the inevitability of financial collapse across all sectors, I have taken it upon myself to put a modest initial investment into getting my preps started. Aside from gear, food and water, I am also prior service, I was 11B (Infantry) in the Army and still retain a decent amount of what I learned through those years of training. I do realize that even if I were to have the best gear and training, it still would not supersede the need for having a group with whom one could rely when society comes unglued and WROL is the name of the game. I have tried to engage my peers but so far they remain uninterested and think that their happy go lucky lifestyle will go on forever . So I turn to this forum and I’m looking for anyone in the Milwaukee area with which to talk to and possibly meet up. There’s only so many Youtube videos I can watch before they all start repeating themselves and I would like the chance to hear from real people who’ve done this for a while.

Thanks in advance

Hi i an new here. Im 45 year old married male looking for like minded people to learn from and hopefully i can help bring alot to the table for the group. I am an avid hunter. This includes bowhunting,gun hunting, blowgun hunting. I trained myself in primitive shelter building,primitive fire starting,primitive bow making,snaring, trapping etc. Spent many days and nights in summer and winter in my primitive shelters with very little. Just a few things in a pack. There is still alot to learn and thats where a group really can be beneficial. If you let me i can also teach others what i know. Please contact me if you are a central wisconsin group and you are still looking for new members. Looking forward to a reply.

Ima try to keep this plain and simple…ima 26 yr old male who lives in the milwaukee area…i have alot of family and friends and for those of you who knows it can get rough here…a couple buddys and I talk and debate about our government all day everyday which led to the whole what if shit did hit the fan here in milwaukee and which that led to this whole prepping thing…alot of questions came about like how the hell is us city people goin to survive, what would we do,where would we go,and definitely who could we trust so would survive…we couldnt really come up with any of the answers!!! So because of our lack of knowledge really got me interested in prepping…now we dont really have any skills but were ready to learn…were loyal and trust worthy and can definitely carry our own weight…were firm believer’s in love ,honor,respect,family and just taking care of people period…but like i said were new to this so we really dont know where to start…theres about 5 of us whos actually taking it serious but thats just because we hvnt really opened up to others about it yet…but because of the relationships that we have with the people here it wouldnt be hard to get others to join and contribute their skills…so if your willing to help us with any information/tips or if your even willing to link up would be appreciated… Thanks

My partner and I both live in the Crystal Lake/McHenry area, and we’re searching for other like-minded Preppers in the area to form a community, trade secrets and skills, and even have meetups and such!  We’re still students working on our degrees right now, so we’re still in our early stages of prep, but we’re enjoying learning everything that we can, and we’re very easy to get along with!

I’m working on my psych degree, which I know will be an extremely useful tool when SHTF, and am also an Eagle Scout, so I’ll have plenty to offer to whatever community might be willing to help us out!

 

Thanks!

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

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

Hi my name is Rita and I am new to this site. I live in on WI/IL border.  I am looking for a group of like minded Christians. I’m feeling alone in this whole endeavor. I am middle age single and family and friends see everything as normal. I am planning on moving out of Beloit into small town living before the snow flies, and looking for a group of people that I can start collaborating with.

Warning: This post is older than 12months. Information contained in this post may no longer be current.

I am a married father (38) of 3 living in the Fox Valley who has been more or less watching things unfold for the last 20 years and feel it is time to get things going.  I am a Christian who believes that we are truly living in end times and see that very soon my family and I will need to leave society.  I have never been happy living in society, I find it hard to fathom that God wanted us to spend all of our time working away from our families to buy things that in reality we really do not need.  The greed and lack of morals has turned this world into something I do not want to be a part of, by everything I know it’s is only going to get worse and I feel it’s time for me to get ready.

I would like to meet others who have the same beliefs and are planning to leave society in the near future.  Since I am now just getting started, I would really appreciate some advice on how others have started and things you have learned along the way.  Ideally I would love to find a group of people to form a self sustaining camp and pool resources at some point.

The kicker to this is that although I have had my beliefs for a long time I have never expressed them to my wife or close friends, I have always been quietly watching for signs that things are about to hit the fan and am now getting concerned.  How do you bring something like this up without sounding crazy…….Hi honey, lets start selling our stuff so we can start preparing to leave society and live in the woods…..  If I wait until the economy crashes all of my stuff will be worthless, taking the mark of the beast to stay in society and have currency is not an option.

 

Thanks in advance, I am hoping to meet some great people here.
