My family and I are relatively new to this, and have been prepping for a little over 2 years now.  As part of this we moved to SE Idaho, only to find the area is not typical prepper territory.  Finding like-minded people has been difficult.  Although we have been able to rouse a few people out of their sleep, none are ready for a commitment to a preparedness community.  We are seeking a group to join instead of starting our own.  Everything I have read is clear that we need to make our requirements known up front.  Here is what we are looking for, or what we stand for:

  • Patriot.  We love the Constitution, and support law enforcement and the military when they perform their legal functions.
  • Christian.  Many groups we have seen here are “just respect each other and we will be okay”.  We don’t believe that works long term.  It works fine for people not having to interact with each other every day.  It doesn’t work for people in close proximity all the time, where their worldview will probably conflict on issues that affect everyone personally.  While it would work prior to an event, after an event, when you have daily working relationships under possibly difficult conditions, it becomes a natural fracture point for a community.
  • Democratic in nature, but with a strong leader.  Decision making is up to the community, BUT when something happens and a decision needs to be made yesterday, there needs to be a leader in place to make a decision and can deal with the pressure brought by other leaders, but still hold a group together.  No dictatorships, just strength.
  • Everyone has a life until TEOTWAWKI.  I have had good interactions with a group in northern Idaho, but their demands are quite stringent, enough so that it affects life in the current normal.  Every group has demands and should.  The demands must be reasonable, although we agree that if events point to a need for more activity, demands should increase.
  • The group must be organized.  There are many groups without bylaws or realistic preparedness expectations, exactly the opposite of the last point made.  At a minimum, we would expect to have requirements for gear, food storage, retreat planning, acceptance of new members both before and after an event, list of specialties/skills for group members to have or pursue, and group operations after an event.  There are others that are important, but you get the idea.
  • A TEOTWAWKI mindset.  We do not believe that preparing for an extended weather or natural disaster emergency is enough.  To use a pop culture reference, if you aren’t preparing for the zombie apocalypse, you are not preparing.  Of course there are levels of preparedness to go through to reach that point, but the end goal for our family is complete group sufficiency.
  • Acceptance of young children.  There are some groups that will not accept families with young kids.  We have two, both under 11 years old.
  • We are willing to move at some point in the future, but it is not in the plans at this time.

About us:

  • All in good health without medical needs.  I am in my mid 40’s and my wife is in her mid 30’s.  I have had several accidents over the years requiring surgery, but in no way does it limit my ability to contribute physically to the group.
  • I am a minister and an engineer.  BA in Computer Science.  Former military (only 2 years), artillery attached to a light infantry division, but no combat experience.  I have experience in the medical field as a CNA and am working on becoming proficient in long term survival medicine.
  • My wife is a homemaker, home school teacher, and is learning about basic natural medicine, such as essential oils and remedies for common ailments without the use of modern medication.  Formerly a pharmacy technician.
  • Currently ready for a one year emergency from a food and basic gear standpoint.

looking forward to hearing from you all.

We are blessed to live on our East Texas 50+ acre homestead full-time, to spend every day molding and shaping it’s potential into reality. As a family, we have decided that we would like to offer the opportunity for certain folks to become a part of our community. We have discussed a few potential options and welcome ideas, because every situation is different. The benefits of a full-time homestead without the massive down payment, 30yr mortgage, 3+hour daily commute and 60hr farm work week. In addition, we offer the opportunity to build camaraderie, to develop and enhance our sustainability skill-set…to become a community BEFORE an event. This won’t be for everyone – It will require background checks, initial public meetings, time and financial investments.
Mister is a former Marine, law enforcement officer and firearms instructor with 25+yrs of experience. Missus is an IT Professional by day, and homestead supermom by night. A high school senior and fourth grader are cheerful farm hands. Extended family includes Army Ranger and Trauma Nurse. Dogs, barn kitty, chickens, ducks…there are always animals! We are a typical Christian family that loves to laugh, hike, watch movies, etc. We work very hard, and we try to play just as hard! We also ensure our family and our farm are prepared for any eventuality. You can email us info [at] txexitstrategy [dot] com or visit that site for more info.

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

My wife and I are looking for a group to join forces with. If we can’t find anyone we think is going in the right direction and we feel comfortable with (reciprocal of course) we will start a group. We are interested in living full-time in a secure and 100% self-sufficient small community. We have many skills and resources. We have excellent property already set up as an adequate bug-out location, but it doesn’t have enough arable land to support more than a few families in a sustainable way. We can get more, no big deal, but do we want to foot the bill for everyone? Not really, and if you’re not invested, you’re not as likely to be committed. Of course, we recognize there are other ways to be invested than financially, and many people simply don’t have the cash. So to us, a significant factor would be ownership.

The thing that bothers me most about other people is extremism. I mean that in general, not specifically the way the word is thrown around in the media these days. So I don’t want to go to any extremes and say that everyone must own land or that no one may own land. I believe it is workable to have a mix. We like private ownership, but that may not be what works for everyone. Many people prefer to rent and avoid the responsibilities of ownership. Some are in the middle; willing to own their home but unwilling to maintain the grounds such as condo ownership. The right legal structure could certainly allow for, and protect the people involved in any number of scenarios. Tennessee law not only allows, but encourages common interest developments. We would definitely be looking for (or creating) a good, fair legal structure.

We envision a group of 50 or so on a compound of 50 or so acres which is in turn surrounded by about 100 acres or more of forest.

We are not particularly religious, and we have no bias against anyone.

We are not militaristic, but we will defend our community. We consider concealment to be the first line of defense, deterrence the second, and overwhelming force the last.

We believe in the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution. We aren’t interested in dictatorships, theocracies, socialism, communism, etc.

We believe we can produce everything needed in a permanently sustainable way by carefully balanced group members.

We don’t want to do anything illegal.

If you already have such community, we would be very interested.

If you are interested in throwing in with us, we can offer land (52 acres) for your use now. As I said, we are looking for more, so I can’t say what the future might hold. I can say that we are ethical and fair.

We have been prepping for many years and looking to take the next step. We haven’t found a community in the area that we am living or wanting to bug out too. So we are looking for information to help us set up a community to help us with our learning curve. any forms, formats, guidance would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks

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.

Peace

We are seeking some mature Christian disciples who would like to become a part of a “community of disciples” living together on the same piece of property and helping each other through the difficult times that are coming very shortly. We have 15.5 acres of land in northwestern North Carolina in the Brushy Mountains. We already have a 700+ foot deep well with plenty of good water, a creek on the property, an apple orchard, raised bed garden, a chicken coop, a mobile home for our family, several outbuildings, a beautiful library, wild game (deer and turkeys), blackberries, blueberries, and fig trees growing. We have incredible mountain views in every direction and several great building sites on the property.

We are looking for mature disciples who are walking close to the Lord on a daily basis, abiding in Him, prayer warriors, who know how to love and serve other people and walk in the fruit of the Spirit, and who desire to live together in community, loving and supporting one another. We need people who can bring skills, knowledge, tools, and resources with them to contribute to the building of a small community of disciples. We are rich in Christ, rich in family, rich in land, rich in wildlife, rich in Biblical truth, rich in love, rich in Biblical knowledge and books and study, while at the same time we are somewhat poor in resources, machinery, and skills. For example, we have an excellent deep well, but have no funds to buy a deep well pump to be able to access the water without electricity. We have plenty of land for growing things and raising animals, but we lack a tractor and even a riding lawnmower.

I grew up on the mission fields of Central Asia, and later served the LORD in Japan, South Sudan, and most recently in Haiti. I am married and we have two precious children ages 9 & 11. We live out our faith from what I like to call a Biblical Hebraic perspective, which means that we celebrate the Feasts of the LORD throughout the year, we believe in keeping God’s commandments and walking in His ways, we keep the Sabbath and rest from sundown Friday to sundown Saturday, and we eat only what the Bible calls clean foods. We believe in all of the gifts of the Spirit and all of the fruit of the Spirit. We love God with all of our hearts, souls, and resources, and seek to love our neighbors as ourselves. We are living a set apart life walking in the narrow way. We are also homeschool parents and teach our own kids the fear of the LORD and how to walk in God’s commandments. We do lots of canning and are considering getting goats soon for milk, cheese, yoghurt, and meat.

If you would be interested in joining hands and hearts with another family or two in a community of disciples who are sold out completely to Jesus Christ and living according to His commandments and His Kingdom principles, then please contact us via this website. We have room for someone who has a motor home or a camper or even for someone who wants to start by pitching a tent. We have plenty of timber on the property and would like to build a community latrine, laundry area, and shower/bathing area. The first step would be for us to start corresponding by email and talking via telephone, getting to know each other. Then, as the Spirit leads, we would set up a face-to-face meeting here at our property and get to know each other better and show you the property and discuss the possibilities. If you are interested, add some information about your interest in the comments section, including how to reach you by email or phone. Or you can use this site to send me a message.

Hello.

A friend and I are looking for an active prepping group and or other peppers’ in the Nashville, Antioch area or Davidson County to either join or network with. We are both new to prepping, but have vast camping, and hiking skills. We started to get into prepping from articles and documentary shows (you know the one) and also from the age we all live in. a blind man can see the writing on the wall.

We are both southern boys with the southern mind set of self-reliance, hunting, fishing and outdoors common knowledge. Also as an asset I am ex-military – US army infantry / NY army National Guard 42ID and 10th mountain1987 to 1996- with weapons and equipment experience, and woodland survival training, escape and evasion. My friend is not EX/MIL, but is very willing to go the distance.

My friend is a native of Tennessee. I am a good old boy from southern Mississippi. I have been living in Nashville for nearly 18 years now. We both live in the Nashville/ Antioch area. What started us on this venture was talking on the hiking trails we try and do every month in long hunter state park. Being self-reliant southerner’s one thing came to another, and we discovered we both had an interest in prepping. We tried to star our own group with just family, but for reasons we all know it’s hard to get everyone on board. I even started a prepping blog online (http://sartan1.wix.com/the-sentinel ), but so far no one seems to know, or care that it’s there. So in the end we decided to look for a group that’s already started to join, or others who have the same mindset as we.

What we can bring is experience, knowledge, dedication and a drive to face the coming storm that is the world we live in today. What we do not know we are willing to learn. I have been out of the loop for nearly 10 years due to a leg injury, but old habits die hard. My wife is on board with us in this, but she can help out rarely due to physical limitations and handicap.

Our concerns are primarily the new Madrid fault, terrorism/EMP/solo flair effects on power grid, tornados, flood and finical collapse. We are not crazy, anti gov/race motivated. We are looking to be self-reliant in the face of adversity.

If we sound like a fit into your nitch, please drop me a line. It’s hard to go it alone. United we stand, divide we fall.
