Family of five to ten 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 live a self sustaining life style full time and move to join a group or help start one. By living a self-sustainable lifestyle before you can survive while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a permanent change in lifestyle to start getting off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid in a secure, secluded area.

I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have a lot of tools and equipment.  I hope to also 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 can build a living structure.  Will be building some type of an earth structure from one of the following: Aircrete, CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the reactive home concept for a living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling) as taught by Bill Mollison long before Mike Reynolds’ Earth Ship concept ever came along.  I am thinking about build my own CEB press.  I also have the material to build a metal roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I believe biofuel is one answer for renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.

Aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source of meat and vegetables that I am aware of.  Built in a reactive greenhouse.

I have personal experience with compost toilets and have built two of them so far with good results.

We have a 2000 gal. rain catchment system in place at our current location.  Designed for a purification system that is renewable without going to the store for filters.  We built a furnace to make activated charcoal to use with sand (which is in abundance).  We have most of the purification system already assembled and ready for food grade 55 gal barrels.

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 all I can 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.  With changes in electrical consumption we have cut our usage in half over the last year getting ready to switch to solar and wind with battery storage.  I am leaving the old 120v system in place so I can take the new system with me.

I have a wife, two sons, (23 & 31) a daughter-in-law, daughter (26) with 3 year old son all in better than average health.  We also have friends who want to go with us as time will permit them to do so.

No medications required for any of us as we use essential oils, herbs and supplements and hopping to start grow a lot of what we will need.  I am looking forward to learning more on how to make tinctures and our own E oils.  As well as canned and fermented foods(the more of this the less refrigeration needed).   We are all 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 a highly populated area 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 Army Vet 73 to 77 was an E5 Motor Sgt in Schweinfurt, Germany.

We have construction experience, electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs (one retro fit roof the size of two foot ball fields 82′ up), mechanic of both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, some reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and much more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen total destruction, civil disorder, rioting, marshal law with state troopers and national guard.  I’ve also seen families who were desperate and not prepared at all along with families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I lived at a mission base 13 years ago with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

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

We are debt free and looking to be in 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 are not looking for a group to join but one to be a part of to form friendship and trust where we cover each others back or 6 as some say.

We have served the Lord for 23 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 someone with a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications as to how we could fit together.  We can support ourselves and are not looking for a free ride.

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

I am both looking for other like-minded people in the Northeast Ohio/Cleveland region who are interested in prepping just to talk to and to possible start up some kind of MeetUp group (whether through the app or not). I have seen that there are a number of people interested, but I’m just trying to gauge whether there might be some more serious people people out there before spending the monthly fee, and potentially getting random or simply curious people.

I, myself, am a longtime researcher and writer. I am currently working on a SHTF fiction series, as well as a couple other projects. I have studied and practiced many skills in regards to preparedness, but would love to get a diverse group of people together to meet up and cross-train, discuss, practice, and learn new skills. If this leads to people forming more permanent bonds, that would obviously be a plus for everyone. Most importantly, though, I would like to try and help get people in the area who are interested in any forms of preparedness working together and learning from each other.

If you have any interest or thoughts on this, feel free to respond here. Signup is free, so I won’t just give my email out on a Google searchable post… But if you leave yours, I will certainly get back to you.

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.
