A warning about Internet predators targeting preppers
May 172018
 

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”)

    Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, November 17, 2018 at the Coos Bay Public Library, 525 Anderson Ave, Coos Bay, OR 97420.

    The main topic is “Disaster Preparedness Plan Workshop”. This year SWOP will be conducting workshops during the meetings. Bring your plan to the workshop. If you do not have a plan to bring that is OK, you will have one to take home when you leave. Bring paper and pencil.

    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.

    We have two private apartments in our older comfortable house on one acre. We are 20 miles from the continental divide and 4 miles from the Missouri river and three lakes. The town is Helena which is 30K people and the state capital, we are 12 miles out and on the fringe of the woods and road less area.

    There are job and education opportunities in the area and some great fishing and hunting. My wife and I have skills ranging from mechanical, welding, RN nurse, alternative healing and herbs.  check out some of my posts on the forum connected with this site, I have been working a lot this summer so I haven’t posted as much lately.

    We are looking for someone who has a means of income and is interested in growing a garden and sharing and learning things. you would be expected to pay rent for your private apartment to help pay for the house and cost of operation.  We are in our 60’s and working full time and also raising a kiddo who found us on the street. Due to his background we are looking for female renters right now but that  could change in the future.

    I truly believe hard times are coming either in a economic depression or more serious problems.  Give me a shout at [email protected]  I will be checking weekly.

    I live in New Jersey and am new to prepping. My family and I are in search of a like minded  group in our area to build a trust and share knowledge with. Like minded being the key words. Although we are all categorized as preppers, our motives, ethical beliefs and ultimate goals aren’t always the same. Would love to be able to get a bit of guidance on our journey. We are constantly seeking information and learning as much as we can. Also practicing what we learn, of course. Hope to hear from you soon.

    [this post is a paid advertisement – comments have been disabled but contact details are listed below]

    In NE Colorado there is a semi ghost town Willard (location is 40°33′16″N 103°29′08″W and elevation is 4,337 ft) that was platted in the 1920’s. There are 76 lots for sale, most ranging in sizes from 25′ x 140′ and 50′ x 140′. Many are contiguous, the largest of which consists of 40 contiguous lots, totaling 4.82 acres.

    The town is located 15-20 miles from a county seat (Sterling, population of approximately 15,000), containing all the conveniances. Willard is surrounded by farm land. Water wells may be drilled but the state of Colorado restricts water useage for domestic use only. There are 5-6 habitatants in one corner of the townsite and a rural telephone warehouse. The county requirements for building require only adherence to the 2006 Residential Code. Hempcrete, straw bale, modular, tiny homes, rammed earth and yurts are not an issue, nor is the raising of chickens, ducks, rabbits, goats and maintaining bee hives.

    The town is bordered by two county maintained gravel roads and a paved state highway 5-6 miles north of the town. Individual lots range in price from $1,500 to $3,000. All 76 lots are available for $135,000.

    FULL DISCLOSURE! This is not some idyllic wooded or mountain site, but is on the prairie. It has a serene atmosphere. The Pawnee National Grasslands is nearby. Current residents are either retired or work in the area. Power/telephone service is available if desired.

    A map (drawing) of the township and legal descriptons are available upon request.

    Hello! I am from the Denton area and I am interested in starting, or joining a group.

    I unfortunately do not have a homestead or bugout, but I do have necessary supplies incase of a catastrophe. My teammates must have their own bugout/homestead, and be willing to share their place with other teammates.

    In return, teammates will share valuable supplies with the group, share any skills they have, and be willing to defend the group as a family.

    I will not arrive empty handed, and will most certainly have items to help all of us. I need others with the same mindset to reach out to me soon. [email protected] is where I reply back instantly.

    I will contact informed Preppers so we can create a group with many knowledgeable people.

    If somebody has a group, which relates to the description I gave, and preferably are Christians then reach out to me soon. I am young, but have knowledge to help in case of an emergency.

    Furthermore, if anyone is interested in starting a group, has their own homestead, copy my email and reach out to me as soon as possible.

    This is an outreach to secured preppers who still wish to become hooked up with an established group. I am part of such an established group and we have room for a few others who are are good character, well stocked or able to become such in short order. Sorry but this is not for beginners rather mature preppers looking to join up with other mature preppers in case of an emergency. You know what we are driving at. Level headed and confident.

    You may contact be via this site as a first step.

    Are you looking for a safe place when times get tough?
    Do you take prepping seriously and are you willing to go all the way, holding nothing back?

    I have been on this journey of preparing for anything for over 2 decades, so I take this very seriously and I don’t have time to be wasting it on those who are not willing to work hard and give their all.

    I had originally been looking for a small community to join, but I have recently inherited a small parcel of land in the county which is suitable for a maximum number of 6 people. This land has been in my family for 3 generations now and this is the land I grew up on so it is very important to me that only the right people come here.
    I am currently seeking a few good people who have the right mindset, and are willing to work towards a common goal of self sufficiency and self reliance, instead of relying on the State for your sustenance, If this is you, then I would like to speak with you.

    I have already begun the work to turn both the front and back yards into a small food forest with fruit trees and bushes as well as nut trees and of course a nice variety of vegetables combined with lots of nice wild edibles. I also have a small field which will be capable of producing enough protein rich meat and eggs for everyone, but will need to build the infrastructure for that before putting any animals in there. All of this is possible but since I am just one man I am only able to do so much so fast. There are already 2 wells on the property and some basic fencing. There is electricity here but at some point I want to go completely solar.

    While this small group of people will not be a religious based community so as not to alienate anyone, I will insist that those who come here will be of the right quality and character.
    I will not insist that those who get involved live here on the land as long as they are willing to invest both time and resources to making this happen. If you plan to live on the land you will need to have enough of an income to be able to help pay the bills and feed yourself (unless you wish to eat as a group) as well as investing in resources to develop the land. If you don’t really have the time to come regularly and help make things happen but are willing to invest resources, that will still secure you a place here.

    I do not have time for anyone who carries a lot of baggage or suffers from psychological disorders. I am in no way interested in dealing with anyone else’s drama. I have worked very hard to get rid of as much of the drama in my life as is possible, and now I insist that this remains a “Drama Free Zone”.

    Initial interviews will be done over the phone, and you will be asked about everything from your political ideologies to “what if”. Anyone seriously considered will be required to come visit and spend a few days to a couple weeks if possible to see if this is really where you want to be. After that, if we decide that you will come here, there will be a probationary period where you will live here and participate in everything being done, before a final decision is made. I have been involved in helping to set up a few communities so I know what works and what doesn’t. As I said earlier I have been on this journey of preparing for anything for over 2 decades, so I take this very seriously.
    If you’re interested, drop me a message and leave your email address.

    Let’s talk.

    Starting over for a 3rd time.
    Lost everything I had due to situations, involving my grown children & husband. This time I’m needing to relocate just to get distance between us.
    My husband isn’t a nice person, especially when drunk.
    My children understand that I want to move to the countryside, but believe that I’m better off in the city, because I have never learned to drive.
    I am in my early 50s, still having hope for my dreams from childhood to become reality. I don’t have very much preps, also never got the chance to learn skills by doing, which is how I learn best.
    I have memories of my brother taking me hunting, cleaning what we caught, showing me how to build a simple shelter, all on our Papaw’s farm in Flaherty, KY. My Dad put me, at the age of 13, in charge of the wood stove while he was at work. He had me & my sisters handle the wood after he chopped it. Dad taught me (although I’m quite rusty now) how to start & maintain the fire. Those, memories were my realities back then.
    My fire inside are still burning for the life I’ve been dreaming of.

    I have read a lot of people posting here as off the grid and such, but if you own land and are basing your group from there you are not off the grid. Off the grid means having the skills to pack up and go where no one knows where you are. no paper trail from land tax, land purchasing, etc.

    Being able to move around quickly and efficiently is a hard skill to learn. Quickly building a shelter for the conditions you are dealing with is more work than most people think. I am ex military, trained in avoiding people. I think people who prepare their prep and store it at their home are none to bright. Martial Law gets declared and you not allowed to drive you are totally bollocked cause you cant tote it around. Looking for a few people who understand this. I have scouted several locations throughout the spring and summer. finding sites where you can get access to clean water is getting more difficult. anyways if anyone has any similar ideas hit me up

    Starting prepping, now I’m just gathering items for the potential bad weather that comes our way. Have a generator, water purifier system  ( Katadyn) hand held.

    I’m starting to assemble a Go Bag, I already use my EDC when out out. My bag consists of small shovel, ax, basic tools, tarp, plastic ( I use mattress wraps) these are great for sleeping warmth. Many other items that are survival minded.

    It is difficult when your wife is not of the same survival thinking, she agrees on prepping , to an extent, she is not a camping person,  Hoilday Inn is her idea of camping.

    Any other locals out there who are starting to be prepared, would live to hear from you.

    Hello all once again. Under further realization that it very well be the final phases of people accepting new members to join their ranks. Im interested in looking up some owner financed property either north or east of cobb county ga. If a secondary home or community cant get to a chosen location within 45 mins to 1 hour tops driving, using side roads,  there is no reason to attempt to form a legitimate homestead location. If anybody is interested contact me at benteam2020 @ yahoo.com ive tried to reach out to real groups but guess the legit ones went silent. I just hit 30 and know the value of invesment and time. Time in which im not taking for granted. The property doesnt have to have a house on it just the land to build on. Like minded and responsible people are welcomed. Lunatic fringe, and overly exposed people from forums are not…

    Sep 052018
     

    After a recent accident we know we are no where near prepared for what is to come. Looking for others that can teach us the prepping ways from the Tri-City area of Northeast Tn/ Southwest Va. if that’s you and you can help us please contact us. Thanks in advance.

    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???

    Survival in NY during current times is daunting as it is. Lately I’ve been having a tough time, although making due while watching my income go to pay taxes. I’ve been looking for new work, preferably a caretaker or superintendent position in ME or NH, the state’s my heart belongs. I’m 26 and still just young enough to move around and try to start somewhere fresh. As well as getting in touch with new people to share ideas for sustainable living post grid, if anyone needs my resume I figure I should ask around here. I’m a tractor and heavy equipment operator/tech by trade, but have built barns, poured concrete, installed plumbing and run conduit. I’ve got a resume and references for anyone who is interested.

    We are just outside of Helena Montana. We have a private apartment in our house that is currently vacant. If you are interested in moving to montana or currently live here get in touch. We also are in a town that has several colleges and quite a bit of employment.

    The time is coming when it will be crucial for sane moral people to come together for self reliant living. We have multiple skills and have been into preparedness for some time. My wife and I are both past retirement age but we both work full time and are raising a teenager.

    Acquiring a years food supply, gaining knowledge to be self reliant is the easy part. Finding others you can get along with and share common goals is the challenge.

    I will be traveling from montana to seattle in the middle of sept 2018. Anyone along the way that wants to get together at a coffee shop for some prepper talk  message me.

    Hello all. I been in here off and on since 2012 in the hopes of finding a community that was practical and logical toward putting prepping in its place which is just that ” a certain part of life but not itself.” since then I have grown past my twenties, have a family of my own and acquired more skills since then. No reason in broadcasting when what and how as I know that for later discussions. Im looking for any group that puts family first, have balanced mindset and keep a consistent check on their abilities, know how and, have room for guest if that situation to arise to contact me here at Benteam2020 @ yahoo.com If you don’t have a homestead or safe locale that’s fine to for as long as our way of life continues it always bring chance for growth, forming bonds without situation, and building!!

    Im the first to let you know that im not crazy and live my life to the fullest at the same time. Its better to know your community before a situation happens to prevent shady situations or character.. its also clear to note that I hold no prejudice or aggression in my heart towards any group of people for as long as they don’t tread on my family on my way of life. so I expect the same who I interact with..

    For those that may be interested, I’m affiliated with an organization that is working hard to try and create a network of preparedness teams throughout the state of Texas:  https://www.sntnls.org/index.php

    I’d be happy to answer any questions if there is interest.

    Hello, I am looking for a location and group to bug out to in the event of varying degrees of societal collapse. I am new to this and not really a “prepper” but have thought having catastrophe plans would be good for my family.

    I am in my 30s and am a husband with wife and three small children and I love Jesus. I am a doctor with broad range of training. I have experience in critical care, advanced trauma life support, emergency medicine, surgical skills with advanced wound management, and proficient at suturing. I hope to have a medical stash soon with antibiotics and trauma/emergency instruments and supplies. Ideally the bug out location would be relatively close, within an hour or two west of fort worth but willing to explore other options.

    Really looking for a level headed person/group who is reasonable but also has secure location with supplies to bug out for extended periods if needed.

    Being in a very liberal state (Oregon) have found it very difficult to find like minded conservatives for preparing for survival while serving the Lord Jesus. Liberals are becoming increasingly hateful and intolerant to anyone Christian or conservative. I’ve put up local ads and 99% of the responses are from people who smoke pot or are unreliable in some way and many of the people I have come across seem to be very liberal minded and hostile to Christians.

    I have a good chunk of some pasture and wooded land in the coastal mountains forest and hope to find someone who has an RV or trailer and would like to find a rent free, off grid spot to setup on. It has good fertile land, a 2000 sq ft garden spot, goats, a barn, a chicken coop, two year round creeks with mountain spring water. The area is abundant with elk, deer salmon, and other wildlife.  Please pray that the Lord would send a person or family who loves Jesus and are ethical, honest, and reliable. I moved out here about 4 years ago to escape the partying and noise in the local city, but now feel very isolated and all alone, just wondering what the Lord would have me do. I have to think there are others out there wanting to escape Babylon. I read so much, even on here, about the $20 trillion debt and likelihood of some economic collapse getting closer every day. Its hard to take care of my farm all on my own and be able to prep at the same time. If I had some help from good people who need a safe place it would be such a blessing. Thanks All!
