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 am not a group or organization, nor do I teach any classes.  I am a Woodswoman/Survivalist seeking Survivalists and Preppers in their 30’s and 40’s.  I am located in Upper Marlboro, and looking for people with a lot of stamina, within reasonable distance for weekend excursions into the woods and possibly camping at some point.  Big game hunters and gun enthusiasts welcome.

    I believe that work compatibility is just as important for survival in the woods as skill set, which is why I am appealing to this age group.

    Hello, we are looking for families or individuals to join our group.

    We are offering a safe location to retreat to in the event of a crisis in exchange for help with security and everyday tasks.

    We have housing infrastructure in place for around 20-25 members on roughly 50 acres with gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. Everything is setup and ready to go. There is also a written contract in place to protect everyone’s interests.

    Our members our expected to have at least a year supply of food, other supplies, personal defense and ammo. New members are given a timeline to acquire food and supplies to be fair to existing members. Everyone must be an asset and not a liability.

    We prep for anything that might make cause for martial law.  (Financial collapse, cyber-attack, epidemic, war, EMP, Carrington Event, major Cascadia earthquake or at New Madrid.)

    Please reply only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Sandpoint, ID.

    We don’t meet in person right away, only after learning more about each other first through emails.

    If you would like to contact us we prefer if you use an encrypted email address such as Protonmail or Hushmail just for a little more security.

    If you are interested you can email us at js47783 [at] protonmail [dot] com

    I was recently with a prepper group. Like minded working on a complete off grid life. Gardens, fields, livestock all brought in. Wells drilled. Construction of buildings for housing, storage and livestock.

    What I brought to the group, 15 years combat medicine. An understanding of theoretical physics. Off the grid engineering. A medic is useful but only if you are injured. My knowledge of physics and engineering is what was most beneficial. Understanding how to build fuel cells. Using water to power a combustion engine. Building generators that were self powering, required no fuel once started. A generator powered by gravity (now this one been having output issues, works just not much energy)

    Other then basic maintenance and replacing worn parts, everything wears out in time. The generators and fuel cells were no cost. It allowed for things to be built more remote. Allowed for basic creature comforts. Allowed for construction of aquaponic systems. The cost to run pumps and lights negated.

    I am no longer with the group. Their direction becoming more militia style. Not my style, I prefer to remain unnoticed.

    Now, I am not looking for a particular group. In a position with friends of 20+ years. Individuals I trust with my life. I do still actively work on my little projects. Still build items, test items and work to better and get more out of them. Such as the fuel cell, attempting to build a grill/stove/fire place that burns water.

    What I offer to a group or individual is the ability to become more self sufficient and more off grid. I can and will consider building certain items. Obviously nothing is free, there is a materials cost, fair compensation for the time it takes.

    I have seen various groups, as mentioned was part of a group. I will not disclose my location for personal safety concerns. I will only meet in a public location of my choosing. And it is highly likely you would meet only a messenger.

    What I can do for you, off the grid. Provide electricity with no emissions. Little to no heat signature. Fuel cells (these are rather expensive to build, depending on what it is for extremely heavy). A smaller version can run a chain saw. Connecting your saw to the cell similar to having an electric saw. The power is not as great on the saw as gas, the fact powered by water a fair trade. Antenna systems…tv, wifi, radio. Glow lights, solar recharging glow sticks. No solar panels, I use chemicals that store solar energy, react with each other producing light. Stable fire starters, I have used a single tea spoon to start a fire using damp and green wood. Depending what your need is, I might be able to help. Maybe build a small cabin, trailer portable with a generator, water catchment, antenna. Toss in a wireless system to charge your cell phone or two way radio.

    Hey everyone,

    Really new to this. I’ve always been all about making sure to save things and not be wasteful, and have emergency supplies “just in case.” With the way the world is going, though, I want to do something more palpable, focused, and purposeful. I know there’s plenty of preppers in Idaho in Boise and northward. I live in Southeastern Idaho, though, so I wouldn’t be opposed to getting input, help, advice, etc. from experienced people in Utah, Montana, or Wyoming, too.

    Thank you for adding me, I look forward to networking with you all.

    Christopher

    What my plan is, is to network with individuals. Get to know each other and build a rapport and friendship.  Start conducting some training classes etc.  As of right now I plan on bugging in.  But that could change depending on other group members’ locations.  Meaning, if other group members have a better location to bug out to and are willing to allow their location to be the designated BOL area.

    I’m 47, married with 3 children. We are Christian.  I spent 16 years in the Army and Michigan Army National Guard.  I worked 4 years as a correction officer and emergency response team member at a prison. Besides tactics, I worked as a Medical Specialist (medic).   We live in a rural area

    I figure that group members could pool their assets to make a retreat a better location. (Some items may be prepositioned.)  What belongs to you, belongs to you.  What is mine, stays mine.  Granted there is going to be some items that are pooled from all members like the group first aid kit or items used for training.  That way if a member quits or is dismissed, there is no arguing about what belongs to you.  I think that written agreements should be implemented so there is no confusion later.

    I think that one of the main priorities should be a year +/- worth of food for each member. All of this will take some time, some longer than others.  Since this is new, everything is subject to change.

    I am looking for a doctor, physician assistant, registered nurse, military to form a mutual assistance group for an emergency situation.  If you are proficient at gardening, canning meat and produce you will be an asset.  If you do not necessarily have any skills but have money for supplies you will be an asset.  There is safety in numbers.  So how about you, what is your background?

    Everyone must work towards the goal of one year of food in storage. Group members must chip in to purchase supplies that will be used by the group.  Group members must be willing to attend training such as firearms marksmanship, first aid, survival skills etc.  Everyone coming on board must be very dedicated, focused, self driven, be able to give their word and keep their word. Communication Security (COMSEC) is a must.  Everyone’s identity and personal information will be kept confidential.

    I believe the group should make decisions together (committee). No dictatorship.  I think there should be a figurehead for daily operation decision making but answer to the group committee.

    I am looking for people from the immediate Cadillac area. Preferably medically or militarily trained. All around handy man & gardening personnel also wanted.

    If this interests you then send an email to materielgeneral [at] yahoo [dot] com and tell me a little about yourself and what you can contribute to the group.

    Thank You

    UPDATE
    **********

    Our next meeting date is July 15, 2pm at the meeting room at Big Boy Restaurant.

    The first hour we will have a home defense class on pat down/frisk and handcuffing an intruder and if time allows some basic home defense techniques for firearms.

    2nd hour we will start having first aid classes.

    Next month will be a camp out and we will tryout bushcraft skills and other classes.

    Looking for self reliant hard working people. The time is getting shorter to be in a good place with good people.

    We think rocky mountain montana is a good place.  We are interested in meeting real people who live in the area or are contemplating moving . God helps the helpless but the rest of us have to chop wood and carry water.

    Looking at this ad it is a bit light on info. I could tell you all the things we have stockpiled for the last 25 years, the skills we have learned and the continuing self reliant things we are doing. But that wouldn’t probably impress the people that have not done things like dig a shelter, can produce, get a RN degree, work in a generator and ATV shop for 30 years, build a couple of houses from scratch and are currently raising a teenager. Plus laying out too much info is bad for opsec.

    Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at COB Cottage Company, 94006 Ginger, Coquille, OR 97423.

    We will be learning how to build with COB. The word cob comes from an old English root meaning a lump or rounded mass. Cob building uses hands and feet to form lumps of earth mixed with sand and straw, a sensory and aesthetic experience similar to sculpting with clay. You will get dirty so wear appropriate clothing.

    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. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com

    Hello

    We have a great deal of practice at being part of the group, we have lived with 4  preper groups 2 groups for just over a year each, one group for two years and a long term for 6 years.

    We left on good terms with each and that is no small undertaking.Their is no perfect family and no perfect group.We have been witness to some of the most interesting group dynamics.Family,marriage,groups each is a commitment day by day a decision that this is what i will work at and this is were i wish to be.     We have never been kicked out or asked to leave any group. We have worked very hard with others to build their infrastructure log cabins,crops,wells,solar power even under ground storm shelters ”bunkers”

    What we want

    A serious and real group of for the most part like minded  people who wish to learn from one and other teach one and other, train together  of course with in reason  for what could be very interesting and trying times ahead or what do we prep for?    We wish to join an established group who want to add to their security, their workforce and their skill sets .We would prefer the Pacific  Northwest area as this is our stomping grounds,But for the right group of people and right place we could be open.

    Some of what i watch for and study and prep for.      our Economy /debt/the fed/I.M.F those are all good right?, Natural disaster/national natural disaster,False flags,cyber attack/true or false flag,/E.M.P,/WAR/world war Nope no chance of that right?N.a.t.o,/U.N     WOW this list could pretty big so that will do. And these are among the most reasonable,rational and logical in the prep world.

    What we bring to the table,

    2 very able body males over 10 years off grid living experience.Husbandry Goats,chickens,rabbits,horses.growing food /vegetables in many different states /environments.Rustic log cabin building,some carpentry skills, off grid tools.First aid and C.P.R as well as advanced field medic training .Disclaimer lived with army medic 5 years navy medic 1 year trained with both i am not a doctor.

    Supplies/security/and other skills  4×4 pickup/work truck ,over a years food stock for a group of 4,A good stock of survival gear, top class A/R’s scoped green laser with flashlight and strobe with sidearms  and a modest arsenal hunting weapons/ammo.bush craft and survival skills at instructor levels

    Hello,

    My name is Faith, I am a 19-year-old prepper. I’ve been learning and practicing prepping since I was twelve years old. Recently I have developed a master plan for SHTF scenarios, and I’d like to create an established group of preppers, young or old, new or experienced; to help me build that community.  Currently, I live in Barren County, Kentucky, however, I want the community to go beyond physical location.

    I’ll attach a copy of my plan files below.

    My plan for this network goes like this: This forum thread is the online base camp for us to communicate. Currently, it is just me, but those that wish to form an official network.  We will swap contact information, a name you wish to be called and a general location (nothing too specific, just to get a basic idea as to where we all are.)

    From there we’d discuss our knowledge of prepping and any other questions, then when enough people are a part of this network, choose a place for a meet up to get to know each other and establish not only a network but also a friendship, with a common goal of preparedness and survival.

    Just as a precaution I’ll make something clear up front: I am a tolerant, open minded person. I respect all ways of life and those who wish to join will not be discriminated on for any reason, you will be judged by your words and actions alone. I will not accept bigoted, racist, sexist, or any form of prejudice. All opinions and expressions are welcomed to be voiced but please do so in a respectable manner. It is encouraged to site and support all statements for show education on the topic of discussion. Bottom line, regardless of skin color, culture, religion, gender, sexuality or any other label we are all here to prepare and share knowledge of survival, and life doesn’t care who or what you are.

    With that our of the way:

    Those who wish to join the network can post a reply to this post with a method of contact and I will respond within three days. Questions or comments can be discussed here as well.

    Note: not all my files will be shown, for security reasons, but you can get an idea of my plans.

    Best Wishes,

    Faith S.

    Have 40 acres in southern Colorado, the land is at the base of the flat top mountain east of the Rockies. I am interested in starting a prepper group on it about 30 miles north of Trinidad.  Everything will be started from scratch for the most part so anyone joining would need to build their house.  I would be happy to help as we will all end up dependent on each other.  I am ex military  with skills in electrical and have lived here for 2 years so there is a cabin with an extra room.  There is a drying room, smoker, chicken coup and rabbit hutch. I am not a believer that we own the land but the land is here for our use which makes us the caretakers of it.  It is remote and hard to get to but it overlooks the valley with plenty of firewood.  20 acres is suitable for growing crops though the feeling I get from the weather changes going on that a green house would be the way to go.  I am also amiable to selling interest in the land and even putting it in the interested parties name.

    I only come to town about once a week so there will be a delay in answering.   I am new to all this so please bear with me.

    Sincerely

    Frank

    I recently acquired 22 acres of land in Oklahoma for use as a BOL/ Prep compound.  As well all know this can not be done alone and therefore I am putting this out looking for members.

    A little about myself I am an outdoorsman love to fish and hunt.  Married to a nurse and have two kids.

    We are looking for the same.  Families that are looking to have a secure location to go when SHTF.  Where a group with various skills in multiple areas can band together for the common good of the group to ride out whatever the situation is.

    The land as stated is close to 22 acres off the beaten path.  has an approximate 1/2 acre pond, rural water on site and will be set up, and power ready to be run and metered.  We all know that as soon as SHTF that those things will go.  Therefore the plan is to drill a well in the near future, build a covered recreation area to include a wood fired kitchen area, tables etc. , a wind or solar source, a community garden to supplement your own preps, community chickens and rabbits, a couple cows and a bull.

    The land itself is treed pretty well, but there are open areas for gardening etc.  Our plan is to have  ten 3/4 acre membership lots at a rate of $125 a month.  This will entitle you a location you can begin to use to prep.  Build your own chicken coops and rabbit hutches, prep your soil for a garden, fence an area for a goat (no pigs) etc.  If you want to build a permanent structure it must be a barn with a small residence to meet county ordinances.  If you do build that becomes property of the compound.  You can pull up a 5th wheel, or a tiny house on wheels for short stays but this is not designed as a permanent residence until SHTF it is a BOL.  Come daily and work on your property that you are leasing if you want but no move ins.  That is not what this is designed for.

    There will be a phone interview as well as a national background check done for criminal history.  No felons need apply, no child abusers, no teachers who have taken their 15 YO students and ran off with them.  I have kids and when (because it will happen) we need to bug out this will be a secure location and people for them to be around.

    If you have thoughts of social injustice and getting back at the man, thoughts of overthrowing the government, terrorists, or are a nut job in general then no need to apply.  If you turn out to be a whack job or a nut, or can not hold your liquor or cant get along you will be asked to leave and take your preps with you with membership cancelled.

    The monthly membership fee will be used among other things to get a well drilled, emergency seed bank for community use (encourage you to have your own as well) water storage areas, an additional larger pond, community rabbits and chickens, community gardens etc.

     

    If there is more interest than the 1st 10 lots and there are more than 10 qualified I have an option to purchase the adjoining 80 acres for the next six months.

     

    Now for more details

    1.  You are not here to freeload.  When SHTF come prepared with your own stuff and what you have been prepping on your spot.  Community resources for food will be limited to what can be grown
    2. Once SHTF everyone will have to pitch in to work the land, cook, clean, provide security etc for the group.  Again this is not a free ride everyone must contribute from each lot to the common good.  I understand not everyone is physically able to do everything and we can work for that but if you can not cut firewood you can wash dishes etc
    3. if you don’t like guns this is probably not the place for you.  I will have a gun and so will my wife and I assume since you are a prepper you will as well but just in case realize there will be people who own guns on the property
    4. Don’t come and think you can grow weed, illegal drugs, lay up drunk etc.  Not going to happen I will terminate your membership and send you packing.
    5. Don’t bring 40 people and expect to keep them on one lot.  When we talk on the phone and email I will need to know the number of people in your group when SHTF because this will impact everyone.
    6. 6.  Don’t expect to live here full time until SHTF.  Come and stay a few days in a tent or a 5th wheel.  Work your spot.  Go Home.  Come back a few days later.  This is a BOL not a residence until SHTF.  If you are close to the property come and work it every day and then go home.

     

    If I have not scared you off please email me at needrecruits at yahoo dot com and I will email you a list of questions.  After that I will schedule a phone interview.  If I feel you are a good fit then I will direct you to a company for a complete background check for all adults you will be bringing.  This will be at your expense.  If you pass the background check you will be given the option to select a remaining 3/4 acre lot to start your preps.  There will be a $250 fee to select your lot.  This shows you are serious and not wasting my time and taking a spot from someone who is.  It also will go into the monthly lease fee fund and a portion will be used for upgrades to the property.

    Payment will be via recurring paypal for your membership fee.

    I look forward to talking with you

    We are looking to connect, correspond, encourage, and be encouraged by any Christian Preppers in any of the New England states (Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island) and New York State.  We currently live in Massachusetts, but would like to relocate to a more rural area, possibly in one of these states (particularly VT, NH, Maine, or upstate NY). We would love to find friends who are both Christian and Preppers. It seems difficult to find both. We believe we should become self-reliant and move away from the cities, whether we are in the “end times” or not. As we see things becoming more restrictive, crazy, and society breaking down, we feel lead to simplify our lives and adopt a self-reliant lifestyle. While we believe the signs of the times certainly point to this being the last days, we do not want to be absolutely presumptuous at this time. However, we still see the great need to prepare in all areas of our lives, as things continue to deteriorate spiritually, economically, socially, morally, and physically. We often truly feel alone (my wife and I), so it would be great to hear from others of similar beliefs, even if you are from some other part of the country. As Christians, we believe the Holy Bible — we believe it all and love it all. We seek to be true followers of Jesus Christ. We do not belong to a particular denomination at this time, but we are essentially fundamental in doctrine. We are not dispensationalist, but we are fine if you are, as long as you believe in prepping as well. Thank you for taking the time to read our post. It would be great to hear from someone!

    In Christ,

    Dale and Julie

    Applications now being taken from retired single military veterans for caretaking position to assist a retired military family, in the beautiful Ozark mountains of S. Central Mo. This is an on site rental arrangement. Farm experience and camper-trailer needed. Will train. Shotgunning experience helpful. This is a preppers paradise offer, where you get the best of both worlds.

    Looking for prepping folks with medical issues that would significantly impact their life in a SHTF situation. Unfortunately, I have Type 1 Diabetes. I am in decent health, given my situation, and am a gung-ho prepper about a year under my belt in prepping. I prepare to ensure I can assist getting my family and my friends beyond the critical first phases of a SHTF event, which obviously I hope never occurs. I know that at this point I will only be able to survive 2 years without new insulin production due to the expiration characteristics of insulin in that it is merely protein in a bottle. I also have had a thyroidectomy and need thyroid medication to survive. I can stock pile that drug to some extent beyond what i can with insulin. Not looking for sympathy here but am looking for prepping folks with similar situations for discussions on prepping with these variables. I have a little knowledge but looking for more and to share what I know.

    Like the title says

    I am reaching out to any like minded Preppers or Prepper Families in or around East Tennessee.

    I am willing to email ideas back and forth to run scenarios by each other. Or meet you in a public place for a cold drink and just shoot the breeze for awhile and bounce ideas off of each other to try to keep you from making mistakes i may have already made or so you can help me to keep from making mistakes you may have already made and learned from. Cause it helps to learn from other peoples mistakes that cost time and money.

    Here’s a little about me. I am located in the mountains of East Tennessee 30 minutes from North Carolina and Virginia. We live on a small acreage farm. Where we raise Chickens, Rabbits, Meat Goats and an occasional Hog. My wife is wanting to become a better gardener. My daughter is wanting to work on raising milk goats. We have trail horses. We work hard to prepare for bad situations and emergencies because I am sure trouble is coming and it is going to be bad.

    I am an Eagle Scout and Ex-Army Infantry. Came home and served locally in the Tennessee Defense Force. I am a Community Service Minded individual but i won’t let my family be a victim. I am a licensed Tennessee Handgun Permit Instructor. A certified CERT “Community Emergency Response Team”Instructor. I used to be a decent mechanic before they computerized everything. I am a certified Glock Armorer. I am working to learn how to reload. I was certified in CPR and as a First Responder in Tennessee. Working to obtain my Ham License.

    Feel free to contact me and we will see where it goes from there.

    Take care, Keep your powder dry and Watch your Six.

    Recently moved here.
    I am a Midwestern farm boy been ‘round the world. I want to meet real people who prepare for the worse, love their family and are capable of caring for their neighbors and friends.
    What I need to know is more or basics about… trauma medicine, radio communications, gardening, food preservation and desert food sources. Maybe down the road an alliance can be formed for the s-h-1-t hit the fan scenario that is coming.
    In the last place I lived, I met what I consider to be my best friend outside my family and one of the finest people I know from this website. I associated with some stand up first class people over the years through him… all from one chance contact on this site.
    However, if you’re a religious nut or anti-government fanatic or into militias don’t respond. If you’re a ‘clinger’ or wannabe general…I’ve been in two armies so don’t waste your time and mine.
    I have written a book on tactics, combat shooting and surviving combat. I can hit my target with one shot, so I don’t need explosives or automatic weapons and am not interested in associating with people who use or deal with the illegal things.
    I am real. I am a Foreign Legion combat veteran and former member of an elite and the most successful ever anti-terrorist commando unit in a little known African civil war. After 30 some combat jumps I lost count, but I have experienced more combat in a few years than most line soldiers see outside the wire over a career spanning three wars.
    It wasn’t that I was that good a soldier that I’m alive… it was luck or God’s Good Grace. Fate or He must have a plan for me, because for what I’ve been through I shouldn’t be walking the earth… my bones should be bleaching in the African sun.
    If you don’t have a proper roof over your head or you’re financially destitute, don’t respond. If you drink, do drugs or rot your lungs with cigarettes… generally you’re not hygienic in body and mind… don’t respond. If you’re a bigot, prejudiced, redneck, selfish or have a problem being loyal to others… don’t respond.
    If you’re a preparedness supplies ‘collector’ or you think that 95 % of preparedness is firearms, weapons and ammunition… and you think that weapons and force alone will keep you alive by taking from others who are prepared when the balloon goes up… have a nice life. I prepare and train for the real thing. It’s way more than just weapons and tactics. SURVIVAL IS AN EFFORT OF COOPERATION BETWEEN PEOPLE.
    PLEASE DO RESPOND… if you are a decent, logical, real family type, healthy living person who believes in individual rights and has ‘grown’ to be tolerant.
    Gotta be close to this area to be effective for you and my family. Combat veterans preferred, but that is not a necessity. Nathaniel Green was the best general Washington had during the Revolutionary War and he never spent a day in his life in the military or knew anything about warfare and tactics prior to 1776.

    Do you have the skills to survive???

    Communities on Whidbey Island need to come together and make a plan. They’re will  not be emergency help once the crap hits the fan and what I mean by crap is when there is no food or supplies left in the stores on the Island. People that are not prepared for this will be coming to you for help. Are you going to turn them away? So I am looking for like minded people to join in and share their survival peppers skills in case of a natural disaster on Whidbey Island. “BE PREPARED”

    What if you were hiking on a trail or camping with some friends and went for a walk when suddenly you don’t know the way back? Do you have enough survival skill to stay put and regroup or maybe survive a night in the woods until you are found or make it back out. “What If” Do you have the skills to survive???

    Community Survival Plan
