    A warning about Internet predators targeting preppers
    Jul 172017
     

    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”)

    We do our best to investigate the warnings, taking the offending posts offline while we do. BUT, it’s not easy trying to get the facts from authorities re: ongoing investigations – or even getting them to confirm an investigation is in progress. Some of these ‘warnings’ talk about ‘a friend of a friend’ or ‘someone I know’ with little or no detail – making getting to the facts & the ability to verify any claims of wrongdoing by the poster, almost impossible.

    So do yourself a favor – before parting with your hard earned money – check out posters before parting with any money. Ask to talk with others who are happy investors/members, ask to visit these places they are selling – do your homework! The Internet is NOT a safe place & scammers prey on those who are naive, desperate & afraid. Don’t be a victim.

    We continue to try & keep this site as safe as we can, but predators will always find new ways to try to part you from your money!

    I’m in the Lehigh Valley and looking to join a prepper group. I used to work as and EMT before starting medical school so I have some useful skills to offer. I am working on slowly becoming more prepared for larger disasters and SHTF scenarios and I need to connect with a group of people to fill in the gaps that there are in my current ability to plan.

    Not far from NJ, PA, Western CT, MA and VT

     

    Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and there are preppers in New York.

    We just have to stay under the radar a bit and blend in with our neighbors.

    NY is not all NYC, far from it.

    We are located both in the NYC metro area (NYC, Long Island, NJ, CT) and in very rural Central NYS adjacent to 5,000,000 acres of the “Forever Wild” Adirondack Park on a 50 acre totally off grid, mountain top modern retreat.

    We are well established and well supplied long term preppers looking for talented team members.

    Always happy to chat and see where it goes.

    You just never know.

    About 9 years ago I made a very dear friend/prepping partner right here on this site.

    Looking to do it again.

    WHO WE ARE-

    We are a family of four.  I am 37 yr old male, my wife is 36 and we have two sons 14 / 7.  I own a construction company in Maine and will be semi retiring within the next year, maybe two if I can stand it.  I am very skilled at many jack of all trades things.  I know that doesn’t put me at the top of most lists of skill sets needed so I will list some of what I have done.

    Rebuild 1970 backhoe / Build my high end custom off grid house / built my barn, mini barn, shelter, septic, 1,000ft driveway, clearing for house / Spent last 10 years living completely off grid with solar (I am poor in the electrical skills department) / Built my construction company from scratch to be able to retire by age 38 / I train with my firearms and tac gear, currently hiring pro trainer for private lessons.

    While this is not a list of my skills, it is a list of things I have accomplished with skills I have and have acquired.  My main focus now on skill building is with tactical firearms training which I am doing every month and on the side at my personal range.  I am also use to extremely high stress environments due to doing construction for 15 years.  My wife has pioneer skills like making bone broth on our wood stove and sewing, natural medicine, soap making, excellent garden skills, and is great at animal husbandry.  She does everything for vet work with our goats including giving them shots, and giving birth to their kids.  We raise goats, rabbits, and chickens. All by her initiative and I essentially am her farm hand.  My two sons are home schooled.  (by my wife) They are typical children.  Though they do help us daily with chores and are not completely ruined by the school system.

    We live in Maine.  You could learn a bit about me by looking up some of my Maine posts.  We currently have a retreat.  Probably one of the better locations as we are a mile down a dirt road off grid surrounded by 3,000 acres.  We have lived here for 10 years and built the place from scratch.  I am strongly considering a move to the areas listed on this posting.  My reasoning behind this is due to a few different things.  I don’t really like the idea of harsh winters for a SHTF situation.  It is not good for long term survival and patrol defense.  Also we have a poor water issue here at my retreat.  Another reason why I would leave is because I struggle with winter blues and would like to find somewhere that has more of a mild winter with temps in the 40’s and 50’s like I see in the MO, AR, OK areas.  Also I have sought and sought to build a dedicated group here and no one has had any interest in joining.  So I am at the point where in approx 1 year I will be able to financially uproot.  I post this now at this time because it would be good to build a relationship with a new group now and strongly work towards this as I assume that this is going to take some time.  Not that I am trying to drag this out.

    We are essentially finishing our preps in the next 90 days.  Our list of supplies would far exceed 90% of most.  The best way that I can say this is that we are 1 family and have essentially prepared for a small group due to no one joining us I have laid up for my neighbors without them knowing as I just did not have another solution.  If you seem like a good fit for us I will gladly share more info on this sensitive topic, but just know that our preps will exceed your expectations.   We even have an “ace card” that would help to financially take care of us and a whole group for lifes basic needs in the event of a collapsed economy as long as there is still some kind of commerce and shipping even if the cost of everything is inflated by a dollar collapse.  No mooch’s please we are not rich. Just have an investment that is not subject to dollar or stock crash.

    We are christians.  I have been a believer in Jesus for 19 years.  I have a mixed doctrinal back ground, but am very solid and not full of wacky teachings.  My wife has been a christian for 14 years.  We would like to find more fellowship where we move as the church here is pretty much just an in and out non participant entertainment atmosphere.  I can get along with brothers from most denominational back grounds as long as their beliefs are not cultic or new age like.  If there is something that we don’t agree on I am humble and still able to get along as long as it is not related to salvation or who Jesus is which I have conservative / early christian roots regarding.  I do love to converse about many different biblical topics though.

    Although I am not fond of the current state of our country, (quite embarrassing actually) I am a patriot and believe in the constitution of the united states.

    Our health overall is good.  I could use some jogging, although I am physically fit from doing farm work and construction work for years.  I am not over weight.  Essentially can not put on weight as I could use to gain a few pounds in the Maine winters.  My sons are typical healthy children.  My wife overall is not unhealthy, but she does have limes. (from a tick bite) She has been doing some super cleansing and major dietary work with some natural health physicians to flush out the lime.  In less than 4 months it has been working showing night and day improvement.  So all and all this is not an issue.  Just want to be upfront about it.

    WHAT WE SEEK-

    We seek a well established small/medium sized group.  We would really prefer the people of this group to have christian background and beliefs and good moral ethics.  I am hoping that in the group some of the skill sets would be some military and leo and medic skills.  The groups retreat should have extremely ideal defensive location well away from big cities.  I would not want to be taking a step back in the quality of what we have for a location at my current home. Group must have 1-3 years supplies for all members and be getting together on a regular basis to train.  Must be in a similar position of your preps as I am or we would not be a good fit.  I am not supplying a group although I am not selfish either and realize that we all come together on this and form a group with some who have strengths in other areas.  Not a group with just an informal bug out plan of a few families with no organization or forward moving goals.   Ideally the members of this group would be close in friendship and like a small family.  I am only interested in groups where every member is like minded and active in some way within the group.  I am not interested in groups that just invite anyone.  I would hope that you would be very careful in your selection of people to join as this is not a free for all type of thing that anyone even reading on this forum should be like even though I see some of that here.  I realize how hard it is to find people who are trust worthy and also have skills and motivation/ability to prep.   It would be preferred if there were some kind of pre-established bylaws for times of peace and post shtf.  Also we would be of the mindset that it would be necessary to store the majority of our preps at the retreat as moving them after an EMP event would not be desirable if possible.  Being from the other side of the fence when it comes to owning a retreat we see the necessity of these things and even though we don’t have them established here it is something we desire and see would only help for smooth operation.  All of what belongs to us will be labeled so that it is easy to identify in the event of a future move although that is not what I am interested in.   I want to do this right and don’t have time for a mistake here.  We do not want anyone who is affiliated with any racist, cult, or anti government type groups.  Also even though I would like it if there is military / leo skills within the group I am not looking for a militia type group.  I think that it is extremely important that there is a multi leadership and not a single commanding king withing the group.  Although I do realize that in many cases executive decisions will need to be made.  Jonathan Hollerman’s books talk a lot about this.

    WHAT WE BRING-

    (Actually SOME of what we bring, as I would never list it all on here.  I only write this so that you can make a judgement to the level of our preps.  The things that I write should let you know where we are at.)

    Two EMP proof vehicles in like new condition -diesel and gas. Foot powered grain thresher. Deep well hand pump. Shallow well pump.  5 dakota alerts. 1,000 jars with ten x times that in lids.  Diesel generator.  Diesel fuel trailer.  Retreat size supply of medical items.  Retreat size supply of many other things I feel I should probably not mention here, I am speaking about the core essentials.  We also have 15 goats and half a dozen meat rabbits we would want to bring. At least some of the goats.  Storage for all of these items could be an issue.  Some of it can go in a conex box and some would need to have stabilized temps. We would also bring my skid steer and all of the attachments- in new condition.  And could bring my old backhoe if there wasn’t a machine to dig on site. And the list goes on.  you get the point.

    MY PLAN-

    My plan is to continue to do what I am doing and prep where I am.  I will be finished with my preps in the next 60-90 days.  I am going to continue to run my company in order to bring in enough cash flow to buy a house and make the expensive move and also to have enough to start another business when I get to a new location.  By the time that I move I will not have to work, but I think it would be irresponsible and lazy being only 38 or 39 to completely retire.  I will try to make a business that would benefit our preps in some way.

    Let me know if we seem like a good fit and we can consider the same and if all works out we can begin to entertain the possibility of making a move in the upcoming year.

    PM me and leave an email on the private message. I will then email you from my email.

    S/E Oklahoma seeking individual, couple or very small group

    What I’m all about:

    I’m 45 years old this year(wow) pass for and can outwork most 25 year olds, and live off-grid in much the same fashion I would if TSHTF. If the end of the world occurred tomorrow, I wouldn’t likely even know about it until I realized planes weren’t flying overhead anymore. I’ve been doing this in earnest now for about a decade, though the adventure started for me in the late 90’s.

    While always under some form of construction/expansion, things are well enough in shape to survive virtually any eventuality- though it’s always in a state of chaos around here in my opinion, nothing is ever quite ‘finished’ and I’m always behind. I don’t really anticipate a calamity that can be marked and commemorated on some future calendar, instead I feel the continued decay of ethics, morality and dependencies/ entitlements have already put us square in the definition of living post-apocalypse. And all it’a likely to do from here is continue to degrade. I am not a ‘gun nut’ praying for something terrible to happen so I can live out my fantasies based on being ‘done wrong’ by the world. Unfortunately, too many of our ranks seem to lean that direction.

    My life is without dependency on the outside world, economy, medical care, etc… I train pack/ draft animals, raise food, devise methods to contend with my needs based on what’s onhand, etc…

    It’s very rural here, off the beaten track, but not so far from ‘town’ or resources to have to worry about having enough gas to go get gas. That said… I might make a trip to town 6 times a year.

    It’s the frontier out here… riff-raff, cowboys and indians, other assorted ‘wild’ inhabitants… the weather is equally wild and so are the innumerable quantities of wildlife that we share the region with. I wouldn’t trade this spot for the world… I was very lucky to have found it and appreciated it’s potential so many years ago.

    What I’m looking for:

    I took all this on by myself and understand how difficult it is to even conceive of it as an individual. Ideally, I’d like to find a person or couple or even a very small group that was looking for an ideal place as I was when I located this one(I am not from here, I sought it out based on a long list of criteria). Learn what it’s all about and what you’re made of, and put yourself or yourselves in a secure position come what may. In a perfect world, ultimately take advantage of the numerous local and adjacent properties that come up for sale(often with owner financing and always very inexpensive) and set up permanantly on your own land, yet have still the community aspect we have created. If things were to ‘go South’ in the interim? Obviously, you’d already be in a very secure position.

    My personal experience has lent me the opinion that ‘intentional communities’ are too flawed for my taste… and too prone to failure- causing everyone involved a very hard time. I think it’s important to ultimately ‘own’ the spot in which you end up.

    I’m not concerned about ‘your skill set’ or what you might bring to the table. In my opinion, most of us under as well as over-estimate our own abilities, needs, etc… without having them put to the test. What I think you MUST have is:

    Determination(even hard-headedness) to the point of never giving up
    At least a desire if not the ability to see things for what they are, not as they ‘should be’
    An interest or even a nostalgia for ‘the pioneers and settlers’ that came before us
    A comprehension that attitude is as much an indicator of success or failure than anything

    It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how much ‘stuff’ you’ve acquired. Everything you ‘need’ is in your head and heart. That said- you would need to be able to provide for yourself or do what’s necessary to do so at least for a few months or until you get your head around things.

    I’m not interested in ‘making money’ off anyone. It would be essential that you help around here, and of course you would be helped as well. But I can’t ‘take care’ of anyone. You’ll have to be resolved to take care of yourself or yourselves.

    As for children- I don’t entirely know the logistics of ‘big brother’ vs trying to raise a family ‘offgrid’. I know that homeschooling is an easier option that most places… It’s not a ‘deal breaker’… but it would require some extra investigation and discussion.

    Criminal records, drug use(including pot) and alcoholism cannot be tolerated- occasional drinking doesn’t bother me, neither does smoking as long as you can provide your own tobacco or learn to grow it.

    If you’re interested(and still reading)… feel free to contact me at *sustainabill at gee male dart calm*. Let’s set up some dialogue and see if we can find a mutually beneficial situation.

    1. Good luck out there.

    I am looking for a prepper group to join from Louisiana. I was raised on a farm in N. Louisiana, been a prepper before there were preppers, and teach others now about woodcraft, growing food, living off of the grid, weapons, family protection, as well as what it takes to survive when SHTF. Anyone interested in an experienced and serious survivor please contact me at pooleconsulting [at] aol [dot] com…….thanks

    Hello,

    I live in MN and wish to join a group that is seeking to thrive when the world as we know it is no longer.  I have a very large amount of supplies and will give details in a private communication along with what skills I can offer a group.  Would like to be in Northern MN, but may consider other locations.

    I look forward to hearing from you!

Group must have 1-3 years supplies for all members and be getting together on a regular basis to train.  Must be in a similar position of your preps as I am or we would not be a good fit.  I am not supplying a group although I am not selfish either and realize that we all come together on this and form a group with some who have strengths in other areas.  Not a group with just an informal bug out plan of a few families with no organization or forward moving goals.   Ideally the members of this group would be close in friendship and like a small family.  I am only interested in groups where every member is like minded and active in some way within the group.  I am not interested in groups that just invite anyone.  I would hope that you would be very careful in your selection of people to join as this is not a free for all type of thing that anyone even reading on this forum should be like even though I see some of that here.  I realize how hard it is to find people who are trust worthy and also have skills and motivation/ability to prep.   It would be preferred if there were some kind of pre-established bylaws for times of peace and post shtf.  Also we would be of the mindset that it would be necessary to store the majority of our preps at the retreat as moving them after an EMP event would not be desirable if possible.  Being from the other side of the fence when it comes to owning a retreat we see the necessity of these things and even though we don’t have them established here it is something we desire and see would only help for smooth operation.  All of what belongs to us will be labeled so that it is easy to identify in the event of a future move although that is not what I am interested in.   I want to do this right and don’t have time for a mistake here.  We do not want anyone who is affiliated with any racist, cult, or anti government type groups.  Also even though I would like it if there is military / leo skills within the group I am not looking for a militia type group.  I think that it is extremely important that there is a multi leadership and not a single commanding king withing the group.  Although I do realize that in many cases executive decisions will need to be made.  Jonathan Hollerman’s books talk a lot about this.

    WHAT WE BRING-

    (Actually SOME of what we bring, as I would never list it all on here.  I only write this so that you can make a judgement to the level of our preps.  The things that I write should let you know where we are at.)

    Two EMP proof vehicles diesel and gas. Foot powered grain thresher. Deep well hand pump. Shallow well pump.  5 dakota alerts. 1,000 jars with ten x times that in lids.  Diesel generator.  Diesel fuel trailer.  Retreat size supply of medical items.  Retreat size supply of many other things I feel I should probably not mention here, I am speaking about the core essentials.  We also have 15 goats and half a dozen meat rabbits we would want to bring. At least some of the goats.  Storage for all of these items could be an issue.  Some of it can go in a conex box and some would need to have stabilized temps. We would also bring my skid steer and all of the attachments- in new condition.  And could bring my old backhoe if there wasn’t a machine to dig on site. And the list goes on.  If you are from the FED’s I am making all of this up and writing this for fun and pure boredom.

    MY PLAN-

    My plan is to continue to do what I am doing and prep where I am.  I will be finished with my preps in the next 60-90 days.  I am going to continue to run my company in order to bring in enough cash flow to buy a house and make the expensive move and also to have enough to start another business when I get to a new location.  By the time that I move I will not have to work, but I think it would be irresponsible and lazy being only 38 or 39 to completely retire.  I will try to make a business that would benefit our preps in some way.

    Let me know if we seem like a good fit and we can consider the same and if all works out we can begin to entertain the possibility of making a move in the upcoming year.

    PM me and leave an email on the private message. I will then email you from my email.

    WHO WE ARE-

    We are a family of four.  I am 37 yr old male, my wife is 36 and we have two sons 14 / 7.  I own a construction company in Maine and will be semi retiring within the next year, maybe two if I can stand it.  I am very skilled at many jack of all trades things.  I know that doesn’t put me at the top of most lists of skill sets needed so I will list some of what I have done.

    Rebuild 1970 backhoe / Build my high end custom house / built my barn, mini barn, shelter, septic, 1,000ft driveway, clearing for house / Spent last 10 years living completely off grid with solar (I am poor in the electrical skills department) / Built my construction company from scratch to be able to retire by age 38 / I train with my firearms and tac gear, currently hiring pro trainer for private lessons

    While this is not a list of my skills, it is a list of things I have accomplished with skills I have and have acquired.  My main focus now on skill building is with tactical firearms training which I am doing every month and on the side at my personal range.  I am also use to extremely high stress environments due to doing commercial construction for 15 years.  My wife has pioneer skills like making bone broth on our wood stove and sewing, natural medicine, soap making, excellent garden skills, and is great at animal husbandry.  She does everything for vet work with our goats including giving them shots, and giving birth to their kids.  We raise goats, rabbits, and chickens. All by her initiative and I essentially am her farm hand.  My two sons are home schooled.  (by my wife) They are typical children.  Though they do help us daily with chores and are not completely ruined by the school system.

    We live in Maine.  You could learn a bit about me by looking up some of my Maine posts.  We currently have a retreat.  Probably one of the better locations as we are a mile down a dirt road off grid surrounded by 3,000 acres.  We have lived here for 10 years and built the place from scratch.  I am strongly considering a move to the areas listed on this posting.  My reasoning behind this is due to a few different things.  I don’t really like the idea of harsh winters for a SHTF situation.  It is not good for long term survival and patrol defense.  Also we have a poor water issue here at my retreat.  Another reason why I would leave is because I struggle with winter blues and would like to find somewhere that has more of a mild winter with temps in the 40’s and 50’s like I see in the VA, NC, KY, TN areas.  Also I have sought and sought to build a dedicated group here and no one has had any interest in joining.  So I am at the point where in approx 1 year I will be able to financially uproot.

    We are essentially finishing our preps in the next 90 days.  Our list of supplies would far exceed 90% of most.  The best way that I can say this is that we are 1 family and have essentially prepared for a small group due to no one joining us I have laid up for my neighbors without them knowing as I just did not have another solution.  If you seem like a good fit for us I will gladly share more info on this sensitive topic, but just know that our preps will exceed your expectations.   We even have an “ace card” that would help to financially take care or us and a whole group for that matter in the event of a collapsed economy as long as there is still some kind of commerce and shipping even if the cost of everything is inflated by a dollar collapse.

    We are christians.  I have been a believer in Jesus for 19 years.  I have a mixed doctrinal back ground, but am very solid and not full of wacky teachings.  My wife has been a christian for 14 years.  We would like to find more fellowship where we move as the church here is pretty much just an in and out non participant entertainment atmosphere.  I can get along with brothers from most denominational back grounds as long as their beliefs are not cultic or new age  like.  If there is something that we don’t agree on I am humble and will not be the pushy type.  I do love to converse about many different biblical topics though.

    Although I am not fond of the current state of our country, (quite embarrassing actually) I am a patriot and believe in the constitution of the united states.

    WHAT WE SEEK-

    We seek a well established small/medium sized group.  We would really prefer the people of this group to have christian background and beliefs and good moral ethics.  I am hoping that in the group some of the skill sets would be some military and leo and medic skills.  The groups retreat should have extremely ideal defensive location well away from big cities. Group must have 1-3 years supplies for all members and be getting together on a regular basis to train.  Ideally the members of this group would be close in friendship and like a small family.  We do not want anyone who is affiliated with any racist, cult, or anti government type groups.

    Hello,

    I’m looking to make connections with Pagan-friendly preppers.  If you’re near Livingston County, that would be great, but that’s not set in stone.  As we’re a small sub-group of a subculture, finding others in any part of the state would be good.  I’m married, middle-aged female, not military, police or medical.  I have some prepping knowledge and firearms, but I’m still working on proficiency.

    Not interested in far right or left politics or racialist ideas. Time is limited right now, and I’m looking only for possible connections to see where we can take it from there.  If interested, contact me at druidprepper1(at)gmail(dot)com.

    Hi,

    I’m looking for a MAG for my family to join. I am an infantry officer with scout and competitive shooting qualifications, my dad and brother are board certified doctors, my mom is a retired nurse, my sister is in school for clinical psychology, and my long time girlfriend is a teacher. We are all christian. My brother and I are licensed ham operators and I hunt and fish.  We are spread between Oregon, California, Texas, and Florida so I am open to groups from any area. I am primarily looking for a place for us to go if there is a large scale disaster. I can send more detailed lists of qualifications and levels of preparedness if requested. In addition, please message me for availability to assist in preparing the site. I look forward to hearing from and working with you and your group.

    Our combat medic had to move out of state and we’re looking to fill that vacancy.  Someone with experience as a medic/corpsman would be great but we’d definitely consider an experienced civilian paramedic who’s willing to drill/train with our team.

    You’ll need to be prepped up, you’ll need to be healthy, and you’ll need to be playing with a full deck.  You’ll have to be able to work with cops and ex-servicemen.   You’ll need to pass an involved vetting process including a background check.  Neo Nazis, anti-Semitics, skin heads, anarchists, communists, convicted felons, racists etc need not apply.

    We’re located in a remote area of northern Michigan, have an excellent group of normal family people and an excellent retreat site.  We can offer you (and your family) a very good situation when it hits the fan if you qualify.

    Contact me for details

    Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and there are preppers in New York.

    We just have to stay under the radar a bit and blend in with our neighbors.

    NY is not all NYC, far from it.

    We are located both in the NYC metro area (NYC, Long Island, NJ, CT) and in very rural Central NYS adjacent to 5,000,000 acres of the “Forever Wild” Adirondack Park.

    Always happy to chat and see where it goes.

    You just never know.

    About 9 years ago I made a very dear friend/prepping partner right here on this site.

    Looking to do it again.

    Hello, just found this site, I see not much traffic here so won’t be surprised if no response. I’m in South central KY (Barren county) not really looking to join a group but sure would be nice to exchange ideas and info with like minded people, looks like we’re few and far between.

    Me and my party have been considering a move northward. Washington seems very appealing to us, with the low population rates over most the states. Tons of virgin forest, great game in area, salmon.. A good place to go off-grid before the crap goes down. Looking to talk a little bit about the lands there, help us decide if it is the place for us. solely basic info.

    Well I have posted here several times…and still looking for the right people.  See several previous “Maine” posts before you reply please, as there is a lot of info that I don’t plan to rewrite.  We live 1 mile down a dirt road and have only one neighbor family that is very like minded.  I have one house that I can rent and another house is for sale.  No one else down here.  Surrounded by miles of forest.  And we have 10 acres cleared for farming.  While this is not a farm area, I do still have to get the acres that are cleared planted with hay/grain and get use to it.  I’d love to be in a farm area, but then again ALL larger farms are right on the road. So I guess we are more of a tactical farm in the woods.  3-5 years after a collapse we could always travel 1 hour away to a farmy area when it is safer to be there.

    Hi to all you preppers out there; my name is Ollie I have been getting ready for anything to happen in this world for 6 yrs now and it’s been quite the task, I have a lot of stuff but just missing a bug out place, all my stuff is in storage.

    I had to retire way to early in my life do to a bad back I am only 58yrs young I can still do a lot of things I just have to be careful. I was a certified welder but have done a lot of other crafts I also have a green thumb.

    Year’s ago I use to mountain man rendezvous all over Utah with my wife and children we had a lot of fun doing that and I learned lots of stuff. I won a lot of shoots in the black powder rifle also did knife and hawk competition. I have have my own tepee or what we would call them Lodges, I made my own buckskin s and have done trapping too.

    I have 8 guns not black powder and a lot ammo, food, tools, my own welding equipment, Jeep,4 wheeler with trailer. I guess what I am trying to say is again is I’ve got a lot stuff but need to find a goup of people that I could blend in with to survive when shtf.

    So if you have a good group of people not extremest semi ok I believe in God and Jesus Christ I am not a Christian addict but will protect myself and others if need be. I live on the outskirts of Salina UT 17 miles south of Richfield.

    So if you think I might fit in with your group drop me a line at odusmack [at] gmail [dot] com.

    I am new to this site and looking for a pepper group. I live in Edmond Oklahoma but grew up in the country and don’t know any preppers around here at all. Looking for a group to train with and to bounce ideas off of etc…
