This is NOT a singles site.

Don’t use the site to argue about religion, politics, race or sexuality. Preppers come from a broad spectrum of society — if you can’t deal with that, move on.

A WARNING ABOUT INTERNET PREDATORS

The online prepper community is, like the rest of the Internet, the target of scammers & predators. From time to time the admins here are made aware of people posting on the site who are targeting preppers in the hope of selling them places in communities that don’t exist or real estate deals that are nothing more than scams. (There are also sexual predators known to troll online forums — so please, take all care in information you divulge & in agreeing to “meets”) Read more on this here.

I’ve just added new categories you can post under.

So as well as finding preppers by location, I’m hoping these new categories will help you find preppers by their skill set.

So when you post, you will need to manually select your skill category if you want to take advantage of these changes.

You will also be able to search by skill category.

If I’ve omitted any skills, let me know.

To get the ball rolling, I will add the appropriate skillset cats to recent posts where the poster has posted as having them.

I will add the new categories to this post so you can see all I’ve added so far.

I recently moved to OK, had to get out of Denver, CO. I’m in the Norman/Moore/OKC area and am looking to meet like-minded people and a mutual assistance group. If there is a FB group/page or another site, I’d appreciate a link or such.

I am most willing to prove my worth.

Thank you for your time and attention.

Hello everyone!

Life has a way of throwing you some curve balls.  In 2019 I had several tossed at me.  Divorce, job change and relocation from Wyoming to Michigan’s Upper Peninsula. Things have worked out and I have a wonderful wife and a new location I call home.  My wife and I left our network in Wyoming and now we are looking to build a new one.  My wife and I are both veterans and she served in combat in Afghanistan.  Looking forward to making new friends.  Just say hello.

I am looking for a family that worships and prays to God alone. A family that would be willing to teach how to be preppers, self reliant, a benefit to others and learn more survival skills.

I want to learn more survival skills. Is there a class or family willing to teach?

Maybe not today, maybe not tomorrow, but I believe there will be a shtf situation and I want to be prepared. I know I can’t do things alone, so looking for a community/group in Orange County that I can join/be a part of and work together during a shtf time.

 

Please email me at [email protected]

 

Even if you aren’t part of a larger community, let’s build one. 🙂

Alabama Militia has been stable for several years, and is expanding our group. Most of us are in North and Central Alabama, but we have abilities to assist and grow other areas of the state. We are not just a Militia, we have Preppers, Homesteaders (PrepSteaders), and are starting a CERT Team in our group to be able to assist in emergencies and disasters. We focus on training for all of these areas of instruction. We are a family and community oriented group, and if you dont feel that you would fit in the Militia, then join as a PrepSteader or CERT. All of our information is posted on our website and feel free to contact us via our website if you have questions or are interested in learning about us. Our PrepSteader group is outstanding and has a lot of knowledge and skills to pass on.

Hello, I have an off grid property in Le Flore County and I am looking to either start or join a prepping community in the area.  I am a USMC veteran and I am older.  I am looking to learn from others.  I am updating the property by constructing a shop and increasing the size of my cabin.  I have a goal of self sufficiency and do have food storage and medical supplies.  Please let me know if you are interested.  Thank you

Currently a resident of NY but soon will be returning to my home in South Carolina (specifically the Pee Dee) region. Was curious to see if there was any active Preppers in SC, or even an established group of preppers. If not I’d be willing to take the time and the effort to start up a group, and network with people within the state and surrounding areas.

You can email me at:   [email protected]

Hope everyone stays safe in the wild times our world is going through now!

A new group is forming in Northeastern Oregon. An area that is rather invisible to the rest of the prepper community.

Group is named North Eastern OregonPreppers.  Their website has not gone active but will soon.  NEOregonPreppers.net

Looking for members in the area as well as affiliation with existing groups.  You know stronger nets have more ties.

We are a married couple of 46 years in our late 60’s. We started prepping in 1984. Well provisioned, husband is retired Army, wife served 2 years. We have experience raising pigs, chickens and dogs. Some gardening abilities with room for improvement. Some basic medical skills. Husband has basic construction skills and RV repair skills in addition to other skills. Wife does the animal raising.

Our current group is in a state of denial for the current events in the world and America, so we are looking to join a DEDICATED group who’s membership is aware of what is happening and realize we only have a few months at best. We currently live in western Colorado, but are very willing to relocate to a better location.
