Thanks, ev NHPrepped says: August 23, 2010 at 8:53 am We are prepped where we sit; husband, wife, dog and barn cat. However, been looking for a while for a place for TEOTWAWKI with plenty of wood and water. Fishing skills, building, gardening, canning skills. Do you have a timeline/plan? evalon says: August 24, 2010 at 5:00 am Hi..We’re as prepped as we can be in suburbs of New York (westchester county)….and have friends with property we could bug out to in upstate NY (catskill park) but lookingf for long term situation up north (way north from us) for long termsurvival….Looing for group to join or form..would like to have own acreage but share collective knowldge and security….Looking purchase property this year..then move permanently by next September….have another small family (one child) onboard with us….Want to email privately??? THANKS, ev outlawblues says: September 2, 2011 at 3:33 pm look west too land out here is reasonable lots of open country woods good hunting and mostly friendly folks NHPrepped says: August 24, 2010 at 9:27 am Property in northwestern Maine much less expensive than NH, taxes very low, plenty of lakes, wood and fresh water. We have been looking but have not landed on anything yet. We too would prefer separate acreage but collective skills/safety. Made a trip not too long ago to Tilton NH to a place called ShelterKit for housing: affordable, can be built in one week with two people and no power tools, so houding not an issue. Highly recommend you take a look at the site. While we are prepped for the two of us (and dog), we are unclear as to how to vet bonafides of others. Ideas? evalon says: August 25, 2010 at 6:02 am Hi…will def look at Shelterkit..thanks….the fella that’s a realtor in Maine posts on this site…have you ever contacted him?? we were thinking of doing so….we like the idea of finding the right community (geographically)… as well as the right property..and people…yes it’s funny I talk to people I meet in these groups and already feel how much we have in common as we’re thinking this way…so many of the people we spend time with in our normal life are woefully unprepared (and unrealistic)….so there’s a certain amount of trust and respect already there with us..total strangers…but of course, how to proceed is a bit frightening..but not as frightening as doing nothing..or going it alone…..Would like to talk more….our email is evalon [at] aol [dot] com THANKS!!!!!!! NHPrepped says: August 25, 2010 at 8:06 am Yes, we saw his post and visited the website; however, we have not contacted him, preferring privacy at this point. We well send you a private email in the next days and perhaps can begin the conversation in more detail. R. F. in western mtns. of Maine says: August 29, 2010 at 2:57 am Hello, I’m that ‘fella’, and while I need to sell real estate, I also am a serious prepper & need like-minded partners here in very safe NW corner of ME. Have lands, housing for some, gardens ,chickens, rabbits, want goats, pigs, bees, maybe oxen & or horses ? I need people to share what I have, but don’t have enough to sell – perhaps some sort of long-term lease, I don’t know . Pretty prepped, but not all the way, not broke, but can’t support others, not much debt, 60 yrs., but youngish – realtor w/a lifetime of skills as carpenter/builder + other handyman skills, have lots of equiptment & tools for building, have excavator (extremely handy), have massive surv. library, some gardening experience (3 summers), have lots of canning supplies, but not much experience in that area (did it once, ate food, didn’t die !?) Anyway, be glad to hear from ya ! trishanightingale says: June 30, 2011 at 9:26 am I know I’m getting onto this string late in the game, but I’ve been looking for over a year for a place to GOOD to. I’m on south shore of MA with 13 yo son. retired from Army nurse corps 5 yrs ago. Did you ever make arrangements to meet others who were chatting with you? I’m having a tough time convincing my family we should get something going, so have been prepping solo. look forward to hearing from you. Trish NHPrepped says: August 29, 2010 at 5:04 am R.F., we are much the same as you, our ages comparable, not broke but not expecting to support others, not much debt, skills as a construction teacher, a tractor, generators, astonishing array of tools, complete woodworking shop and lathe, excellent gardening, fishing and canning skills and equipment,etc. Are NOT interested in a commune but neighbors who we can trust and upon whom we can rely. Are not yet ready to relocate so the idea of a lease/rent arrangement for housing and contributing to the upkeep make sense. Perhaps a trip to see you and chat might be in order? Lears says: September 10, 2010 at 9:40 am Currently living and working in NJ but I will be bugging out to NH with the wife and daughter. I have purchased 30 acres up there and am in the process of trying to get something built. I am new to this prepping business but all of a sudden I feel myself in one damn hurry! price2ME says: June 29, 2011 at 2:45 pm For those of you who haven’t met the realtor from Maine, I know him and will vouch that he’s a stand up guy. We met three years ago through this site and since we live with a 2 1/2 hour drive, I’ve visited 4 times and had numerous discussions. I haven’t been ready to move up that far north yet, but the day is fast approaching when I’ll want to leave here (southern Maine). What has held me back is that I want to live in a community of like minded people- not just one or two, but ten or more. I would be willing to go in on on a parcel with some TRUSTWORTHY people if we could subdivide, or maybe just buy out a small neighborhood LOL. I can carry my own weight, but not anyone else’s. I would like to stay in Maine but would consider northeastern New Hampshire.. Use my login name in the title of a post to express interest. trishanightingale says: June 30, 2011 at 9:36 am price2me, I just joined today and have replied to a few posts from folks around NE. I sure hope I’m doing this right, my 1st experience with a chat room. I’m sort of in the same boat as you. I don’t feel safe where I am (South shore of MA- 10 miles from a nuke plant that was rated 2nd worst in the country) and am willing to invest in a small group. have already accumulated lots, just don’t know where to go yet, and can’t convince family the problem is as big as I expect. I’m a retired army nurse, 48, 13 yo son, one cat. I’m weapons qualified, haven’t hunted, but can cook:) I like the idea of having a small group of folks living close by who can hunker down together if things get realy dicey. Gotta go hope to hear from you Trish Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
