Hello, my wife and I currently live in West Michigan, but after denying it for a couple years, are finally feeling the strong pull to the Ozarks. We don’t know anyone down there, and all I know is from YouTube Homesteaders (and Bear Independent/PJ viking prep) and reading on the internet. We’ve been praying heavily and are trusting His timing.

We are committed to stay in MI until next spring (work contract, small excavating company) but are really liking the sounds of MO. We figured we’d get a small place before we settle on to a homestead (probably from raw land, idk we’ll see where God leads us), so we can see the area and network. Things are getting expensive here, and land is scarce. Sounds cheaper and slowed down down there (I work 6 days a week and haven’t much to show for it, getting burnt out amd frustrated).

We have gardening and food preservation knowledge (we apartment-stead veggies and quail, LARGE garden out of town), have hunting/fishing hobbies, both handy (I’ve worked trades and done diesel tech on trucks/equipment), comfortable around firearms, etc. Looking to Homestead w/ intent to plug in to local community and prep/network for when things get sketchy. End-of-the-World eschatology aside, things are gonna be hairy here for a few years and MI doesn’t enable to live that way. We might have the greater family tribe follow us w/in a few years.

Weither there are current groups on here, or elsewhere please feel free to get in touch with us or would be grateful to get nuudged in the right direction.

Thanks,

–Nathan–

Don’t know how to use and navigate this site yet.  Just joined a few minutes ago in an effort to meet like-minded people who know what is coming and want to prepare for the worst.

I’m looking for born-again Christians with money and skills, who would like to help purchase some land to farm (animals and crops) for survival and to sell/trade in the end days.  Separate houses or trailers, but with some things shared, i.e. large garage, and the ability to help protect one another.  Would like to meet people and discuss in person if possible, so we can interview one another and hopefully become friends.

Email me at [email protected]

We would like to hear from others in Idaho that would like to form a off grid self sustaining group. Our intent is to have 4 to 6 families that are serious about living off grid. I wish I could say we have ample time left to prepare, but unfortunately this is obviously not the case. If your totally ready to make a commitment to this type endeavor then contact me at [email protected] . I’ll provide further details to you with my reply.

Reaching out again. I am looking to make contact with other preppers. I would love to find a group to join for mutual support and learning skills. But I would welcome contact with beginners too. Maybe there is a need to start a new group in northern Illinois.
I am not an expert but do have some useful skills and some supplies. I live in the Algonquin area.

Hey everyone,

I see that several people that have posted on this site are from the Tampa Bay Area and the surrounding counties.

If you all are still looking to connect with like minded folks then either private message me using this sites messaging function or reply to this post with your preferred method such as an email address.

Either way I will reply back and coordinate more communication between the folks and hopefully meet up to do an activity.

Apr 242022
 

Looking to join an existing group or form one. We are food prepped and well armed but seek safety in numbers (I can’t stay awake 24 hours a day to stand watch) and interested in a rural location if SHTF.

Small Christian family with ethical attitude toward prepping. Not looking to join or form a militia. Just defend what we all prepped if needed. If you follow the great reset plan we intend to be part of the “discontents” who do not take part in their “utopia”.

PM me o this site if interested in forming or if you have a group formed and would like a hard working addition to your group.

I am in the Geneva/St. Charles area in Illinois. I am a total newbie to prepping. I feel like I have a decent background that gives me some practical base knowledge as I grew up backpacking in the Sierras, I was in the Military in the Northwest for 8 years and have gone through some basic survival and combat training (not actual combat because when I was in there were no conflicts, just don’t want to be one of those guys trying to act like they’re something they’re not. Guys like that are reprehensible to me).

So I have a basic understanding of freeze dried food, MRE’s, and other storable food, chemical warfare training, being able to live off the land, etc. HOWEVER! Man there is a lot out there to choose from when supplying up. I’m sure most of it is good stuff but I just don’t want to stockpile something that looked good online but in reality isn’t worth the money. I also have limited knowledge of shelf life, quantities, and types of food to store.

I also think it would be fun to just meet some folks near me and make some like minded connections. I’m a big proponent of not reinventing the wheel, I’d love to find a mentor or mentors near me to connect and compare notes.

So is there a group in or near the area I mentioned that meets?

Thanks for reading!

We (family of 3) have been in North Idaho for almost a year and are looking to seriously connect with like-minded Christian-conservative preppers that are local to us in the St.M -Medimont area. We have homesteading skills, gardening, raising small livestock, fencing, light carpentry, food preservation, some basic medical knowledge and are firm 2A proponents. Wife is a former nurse and  husband is a master electrician, specializing in off-grid-solar, generators, etc. Also, looking for bartering partners and to purchase a few acres of rural land or possibly do a group land purchase (sky-high land prices are becoming more prohibitive in Idaho) in the North Idaho area-Bonner, Boundary, Benewah or Idaho counties. Anyone in our area, please contact us and we can discuss if we may be a good fit. Thanks!m

Retired medical professional, interested in meeting like minded people. I live between Chicago and Rockford. I have been prepping on my own for awhile. Have some skills but an weak in other areas. Just trying to connect, learn from others and provide support that others might need.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding its monthly meeting at 1 PM, Saturday, April 9, 2022 at the Sawdust Theatre, 120 N Adams St, Coquille, OR 97423. PLEASE NOTE THE TIME CHANGE.

The main topic is “Situational Awareness Revisited”. With all that is going on in the world and in our country, it is vital to be aware of what is going on around you at all times. We will be discussing the three stages of situational awareness (SA) and how to incorporate them in your life. SA is not just for military operations. SA could save your life.

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.

This is a different kind of post and I hope it is okay.   We are west of Deer Park, WA, right now, in a rental house on shared acreage for the last 6-1/2 years.  Just Monday, out of the blue, our landlord says she needs this house for a family member and we have to be out by May 31.  Rental market is pretty slim overall right now, and when you throw in goats, poultry, dogs and cats into the mix, it is really slim pickings..  Right now, our thought is to just find some land to rent and put a shed and outfitter’s tent on it.  Ideally we would like to be very rural in Stevens, Pend Oreille or Ferry County in WA or Bonner or Boundary County in ID.  Husband is an RN and can get work just about anywhere, if it’s not commuting distance to his current job.  We have t-posts and fencing we would put up to corral the animals (we don’t even let our dogs roam free).  Water and electric would be nice, but off-grid is okay too as we have spent the last several years preparing as much as we can for off-grid living.  Please email at [email protected]

Hello

My husband and I are in Brevard County FL (central coastal florida) and need help with knowledge resources…we have never been involved with preparing for any disaster except a small bit for a potential hurricane. I have recently been ready about EMPs and am growing concerned. Any guidance would be appreciated.

Thank you

Looking to connect with other preppers in the Tucson area. Also open to connecting with those near Phoenix/Maricopa. I am a woman in my mid-30’s. I’m learning vital skills (food prep, self-defense, medicine, etc.). I am not worried about if you are an anti-vaxxer or like Trump. I do value discretion and want a group that isn’t looking to make trouble.

My email is [email protected]

Hello everyone!

I’m a single Christian man (30 yrs) who watches the markets everyday and preps with family and friends. I discuss market strategies, surviving in grid-down scenarios, barter and trade, rebooted system, etc. I’m looking to expand the network for myself and friends. It’s not enough to survive on your own, we need communities. I live around the Springfield area. Feel free to reach out to me via email ([email protected]) or Signal (417-766-9212). Looking forward to hearing from people. Have a blessed day!

Hello.

Prince George BC has a lot to offer being a hub of commerce, education,  culture and bridges but finding people who are ready, willing and able in the prep world can be difficult.   This might be because in the “north” we are solitary independent people.   Who knows?  I know I am.  But…I also know that prepping takes energy, time, money, and determination among other things.

Each of us can prepare for things on our own but then what?  Once you’ve filled your home with stockpiles of needed things,  buried your reserves all over the crown land,  hidden things under rocks and in streams you feel prepared.   But while your at work your house is buried in a landslide and that crazy arsonist kid set a field on fire and took out your markers on where you buried your treasures.   Now you’re alone with minimal supplies and the proverbial doo doo does its thing.

Even if the above doesn’t happen,  wouldn’t it be more enjoyable to be doing the things you love -prepping- with others that you can build a trust with.   Bush craft, foraging,  fishing, hunting, camping, canning, building a skills and knowledge base, mechanics, carpentry, logging, blacksmithing, gardening and earth prep,  storing, along with medical, practactical tactical,  fuel alternatives,  solar, wind, water generated power, equestrian skills, leather making, rope making, bow making, animal husbandry, butchering, shearing, weaving, sewing, scouting, general communications systems, etc.  There’s a lot to know; a group of interested, motivated people who want to start or continue preping and are willing to share knowledge and skills are an awesome asset to any plans.  Have fun while we can.  Many of these skills were common a few generations ago and I believe they should still be common knowledge.

If you are interested in being involved in a group that isn’t trying to replicate some crazy militaristic movie scenario, doesn’t charge fees (everyone does what they can as they can without mega “group” pressure),  is morally bound with biblically ethical values, likes guitars (and other instruments) around campfires (but definitely is not playing kumbaya), and is trying hard to remain positively motivated in troubling times…contact Sacron.

Hi there, has anybody else been aware of the news? We just doubled down on garden seeds and storable food.

We are looking for others who have a real desire to survive the coming hard times and thrive.

We just picked up another motorhome so we have one available (31ft) for those who want to have a place in montana ($500 to buy it for the right people). Motorhome for now with fortified home when things go really crazy. Must enjoy working a garden and chickens.

We have resources and knowledge and we can be of great help to others who want to come together for the groups common good.

We are in central montana just over the continental divide on the eastern side.

Let’s talk.    [email protected]

Interested persons who have the financial means to buy in to the ranch compound as their bug out location in southern indiana may contact me. Those who want to trade their “extensive skill sets” are all ready on board.

Work complete on the ranch – I tried to recruit help at no charge with no success – I paid for it all my self – and as the saying gos, if its free it must not be any good. Buy in starts at 10 K a couple & 20 k a family of five.

The ranch is now complete
