I live in Iowa. I am seeking to connect with others that are wanting to prepare themselves to survive the chaos erupting in the United States.
I am 55 years old. I have a unique spiritual belief system. I collect wild herbs and flower, as well as roots and bark for nutrition and medicinal purposes. I have been working with infusions extracts and tinctures for a few years now. I know that these things can be the difference between survival and death in the times where you can no longer seek medical attention or go to a pharmacy for medication.
My knowledge of this art is my strongest asset to contribute.
My weakness is the lack of likeminded people to share and exchange ideas with.
I am reaching out in hopes of finding a strong community to connect with.
If interested, please contact me at: [email protected]
Thank you for reading.
In love and light, blessed be

Hello all,

I go by Ricky, and I’m a huge prepper/planner.
I come with experience, as a firefighter/ EMT for over 3 1/2 yrs. Alongside that, I also have a degree in emergency management, which can be a great aid in planning, preparation, and mitigation. I’d love to meet like minded people, learn new things and help others!

Howdy. I just moved to Piqua a few months ago from chicago. I am interested in finding some like minded people. As things get crazier and just plan stupid it reminds me why we do what we do. Ive kinda been doing things on my own for a few years but think its time to finally start working with other people. Ive only been in the area a short time so i don’t know the area very well. I work a lot and have a dumb schedule which makes meet ups a little bit of a challenge. Peace

Hey there I am new to Florida. Looking to meet up with other like-minded people to go through it together when shtf.

My hubby and myself are almost 50. We have a 9yo daughter.

I had already prepped a lot of stuff once but had to leave most of it behind in the move.

I dreamt about 2 weeks to start a garden so I am starting a garden (lol) and trying to connect with other preppers while there is still time.

I believe that the only way I will get through this is with others and my faith in God. I am not equipped mentally, physically, or spiritually to handle what is to come but I know a man who can.

We are not judgmental and would like to work with others regardless of their faith or lack of faith. I tend to prefer to be around other non-judgmental people and easy going people.

We are a peaceful family and wish to join others who are like-minded in that regard.

Love you all and sending hugs to everyone who is anxious for the life storms that are about to come our way soon. xx

Good eavnining,

New to the site, and looking for a group in my area, (Highlands county Florida) mid 30’s, male with family. We can currently hold our own, but a group is the true goal. We posses key skills and training. Group meetups and training also desired. PM me with any questions. Thanks! (This is also my first post, so hope its posted correctly)

Our most important prep is networking with like minded individuals who value freedom, independence and responsibility.

Free Prepper training/meeting scheduled here in the Mid-Ohio Valley. If you are near the Marietta, OH / Parkersburg, WV area, please stop by. Please spread the word and feel free to contact me with any questions or suggestions. ([email protected])

My goal is for this to become a group effort, sharing skills and knowledge with one another. If anyone would be interested in presenting at a future meeting, please let me know.

Who We Are

We are regular people from all walks of life, who know the importance of being prepared. We want to be proactive in preparing to sustain our family through disaster. We are not a militia. We are made up of hard working, responsible adults with careers, businesses and families to support.

We are not a political group but, we DO NOT avoid politics for fear of hurting someone’s feelings. We have conservative, Christian values and encourage freedom loving American’s to get involved. Especially if you are the type of person who just wants to be left alone. (I’m with you but you’re not going to be left alone with leftist’s in office.)

We know it’s wise to prepare for a bright future as well as natural or man-made disasters. Whether you are experienced or just getting started, you will find value within the group. There are no requirements except a willingness to learn and to help others at whatever level you find them on their journey of preparedness.

If you are near the Mid-Ohio Valley: Marietta, Ohio / Parkersburg, West Virginia area, we meet once a month to train, share a meal and trade information, resources, ideas, and ways to support and promote one another.

If you are not in the area, please join us online and use this site to network and share ideas: preppernetwork.org (under construction as of this writing)

Our first meeting:

When and Where:
Freedom Gate Church
104 Tennis Center Dr,
Marietta, OH 45750
Thursday, June 23rd,
2022
6pm – 8pm
Price: FREE

You’ll Learn:
-Potential disasters you may not have thought of.
-The Rule of 3’s.
-Creating a Family Plan.
-Setting goals within your budget
-Food & Water Storage.
-72 Hour Kit Basics

Hi there,

We’re new to this forum and looking to move very soon from the Tampa, fl area to South West Florida. (July 2022)  We’re a preparedness focused youngish recently married couple looking to connect with other preparedness minded people in that area of Florida. I’m fit, friendly and in my 40’s and my wife’s a little younger. I’ve been interested in preparedness since 2001 but serious about it since about 2012. My wife has been getting more and more on board as the reality of our country’s situation becomes more apparent.

-Fit

– Mechanically inclined

– Creative problem solving

-Food production and self reliance

-Security focused

We’ve met some good people in the Tampa area but are now looking to move to Southwest Florida and want to reach out first. Food self reliance and production along with security are top priority and we’re learning and expanding our knowledge and skillsets. We read and study often. We’re creative problem-solvers and looking to meet good  people in the real word rather than the internet with the eventual goal of being part of a tight knit, focused group of people. I believe fitness is your biggest prep and think doing your best in that department is important.

I agree with a lot of the pepper philosophies of Viking Preparedness, Bear Independent ect and understand the value and necessity of strong community and a tight group who can rely on each other in serious times. There is strength in that.

 

Overall, just looking to meet new cool people.

 

Please private message if you’re in that general vicinity and we can then exchange more contact information. Thanks for reading

Hello from rocky mountain montana. We live outside a city of 35K people just over the continental divide. Montana never has had a vax mandate and we are not vaxxed and don’t care to spend a lot of time with people that are vaxxed

We are looking for others who want to live with wood heat, solar pumped well, a few chickens, close to a major river and a few lakes and grow a big garden.

Do you want to see a group survive the coming catastrophes and come out the other side whole and ready to pursue their own interests?

We have two freeze dryers running and have the means to defend ourselves as well as the ability to outfit others who are trustworthy and hard working.

[email protected]  You can join proton mail or use any of the other mail providers to email me. Time is short, there is a storm coming.

Looking to communicate with like minded people and figure out a bug out plan.

Thinking about a group of individuals workinig together to formulate strategies for food & water storage , firearms and ammunition or other hunting essentials + all other apsects required when TSHTF situation.

Trying to gather everything is super expensive and a huge problem with space ,possibly easier if different people take care of different items and have a communial goal to share and work together.

Hit me up to chat.

Thanks

27 years old, near St Paul, mn.

I’m interested in finding a group of likeminded people near me, in order to trade skills/ information, as well as to plan for a worst case scenario. I have skills in emergency medicine, basic firearms training, and food preservation. I’m easy to get along with, work in the electrical industry, and have enough supply to pull my own weight for a year with minimal hunting/ forging.  My wife has a military background, as well as linguistic skills. We are both non religious, but value pragmatic, trustworthy people regardless of faith. Please DM me if you’re aware of groups near me, who may be interested in cooperating during any potentially bad situation in the future.

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.

Apr 272022
 

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
