This site has TWO useful areas. A forum (for discussion, opinions and chit-chat) and the main site (contacting or starting a group). You are currently on the main (contact) site.
is for posting contacts. This is where you are now. If you want to start or join a group, create a post here. In order to do that, you will need an account: you register here. (all posts are deleted after 2 years in an effort to keep the information and contact details current – we found a lot of older posts were returning emails as user unknown)
More information: What’s proper to post, what’s not || Getting Started || Are you press/media?
is for posting opinions, reviews, news articles, buying & selling and questions. You can access it here. The forum requires a separate, additional registration from the main site. You can register for the forum here.

ATTENTION Reporters, Media Companies & Casting Agencies
If you are from the press/media and want to join this site to interview it’s members – DON’T!
If you are from a casting agency and want to join this site to recruit it’s members for “reality” programs – DON’T!
If you would like this sites owner/admin to review a book, dvd etc – email john [at] preppergroups [dot] com
If the people on this site wanted to talk to the press, they would approach the press. Respect their privacy! Media spammers will be reported, IP addresses will be recorded and they will be BANNED!
However, if you would like me to make your contact details available to the preppers on this site, send a message here. List the organization, your contact details and if there is a specific location you represent.
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 some what new to prepping and am looking to meet prepping groups. I am Christian and me family owns farm land in the area. We have stored some food and also made water and lighting arrangements. My father is a retired sheet metal worker and a farmer by trade. I have trained horses and cattle in my youth. I have learning gardening skills and my mother knows how to cook on a wood burning cook stove. We all know how to build a fire in doors and out since we have using wood burning hearing stove most of our lives. We also have camping gear. If their are like minded prepped people in our area we would like to get to know them.
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…
Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at 10 AM on Saturday, November, 18, 2017 at Coos Bay Public Library, 525 Anderson Ave, Coos Bay, OR 97420. Please note the early start time.
The main topic is “Practical Preparedness and Survival”. This will be a discussion about separating the wheat from the chaff when it comes to preparing for and surviving disasters.
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.
Things are looking more and more unstable in the world each day to say the least. Looking for a group in the area that is well organized, trains and has each others backs. Not looking for pretenders or folks that do things half way. I don’t care for anarchists, racist, or tin hats. I was a police officer for 6 1/2 years, an R.N. for 25 years. I have worked construction. I reload. I am in excellent physical shape. I’m a conservative. What I don’t know I am willing to learn. After all a group is only as good as it’s weakest link. Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.
PS. Here is a shout out to Old Food, glad to see you are still around.
The Survive N Thrive Preparedness Group will continue to meet on a monthly basis now. Our next 2 meetings are Saturday, Nov 18 and Saturday, Dec 16, 2017 from 4pm to 6pm at the Millersburg Community center/Library, 5561 Main St, Millersburg, MI….This is between Onaway and Rogers City off 68.
FREE MEETING…Potluck dinner…All are welcome.
This is a meet up to acquaint concerned or curious people to the concept of being prepared for emergencies whether it’s an economic downturn, natural disaster, power outage etc…Being prepared ahead of time gives you & your family peace of mind & puts you in a position to help others when disaster strikes. This is for everyone at all levels of preparedness. If you are new to this, there will be experienced people to offer advice & help you formulate a plan to thrive thru an emergency situation. If you are a seasoned prepper, we welcome you to share your knowledge & help mentor others that are just starting out. Family Friendly! See you there!
Hi! I’m new to this site and prepping in general and wanted to know if there was anyone in the Kansas City area on this site. Thanks!
If you have training/experience with scouting/reconnaissance (Special Forces/Force Recon/etc) -we are looking for you. Contact us for all the details but we have and are everything you’d want plus more than you can imagine to stay safe yourself and keep your family safe. We’re located in northern Michigan in a very rural area not near any cities or freeways within a national forest.
Respond to… tscm120 [at] gmail [dot] com
We are looking to add a few new members to our group with different skill sets. Currently have very defensible location and finishing advanced preps. It is only really cold here in coastal Maine 4 months out of the year and the summers are not to harsh to handle. We are far enough from the cities ect.
We hope to find good people who will grow to become great friends. Getting to know each other and getting together to plan and prepare together and train together must be a priority. It is necessary to work out all the details as a group before TSHTF and not scramble after to figure it out. That can lead to a lot of fun training, and brainstorming and problem solving. If you have military or medic skills please contact me.
If you are just new to prepping and haven’t really done anything to prepare yet then I don’t mind talking to you, but probably wouldn’t ask you to join our group, unless you are a heart surgeon or a Navy Seal. Lol.
We are looking for experienced individuals or small families that are fairly underway to being “prepared” but that feel they need to form a relationship with someone with a good bug out location to join forces for strength in numbers and for having others that grow to care about them when everything falls apart.
If this sounds like we might be a good fit PM me. Also please do not try to get set up here as a bug out location, learn about our preps and then not actively “prep together” and just have us as your fall back. That won’t work. We are looking for serious people.

Hi everyone. I’m hismrsfinnegan and I’m new to the group. I used to be better prepared for emergencies but last year I became very I’ll and almost died and some family members decided to go through my preps and help themselves.
So, here I sit with some food, a little bit of water, some emergency supplies left and an empty 72hour kit. I need to start over.
I’m also a widow living on a limited income with few friends and family hundreds of miles away.
I want to rebuild my preps as quickly as I can but I feel alone in this task. There may be some funds next year that can help with food and some supplies but I feel like I need to start NOW.
I am planning on water and working on food storage, tp, basics to start. My main goal is my 72hour kit. Warm clothes, will socks, etc…
It’s been many years since I started my prepping and to get home after months in the hospital to find things missing is disheartening, but I can’t give up. I need to do SOMETHING.
Anyone with any advice, it would be greatly welcomed. My first goal is to make sure none of my neighbors know of my prepping and only 2 family members can be trusted. (Not even my kids at tjis point). They live 200 miles away and we are working on fixing up my home in case they can get here when SHTF.
Thanks for letting me join the grouo. I’m sure I’ll have many questions but I want to share as well.
We have 100 acres in Cocke County TN. We are creating a small self sufficient community. We are looking for 6 more families to join us and build permanent homes, each on their own 5 to 15 acre parcel within this 100 acre community. We will also host limited numbers of shelters for part-time and emergency only members. To put it bluntly, we need money and labor to build infrastructure. We do not have a set price or single plan. If we feel you will be a good fit in our community, we will work out a plan that all can agree on.
We already have occupied homes and outbuildings. We have construction equipment. We have workshop space and tools. We have power and water.
We do not have empty homes ready for move-in. We do not have the money to finance home building. We can provide site preparation including excavation and septic installs. We can help with designing and building, just not financing.
We are working on establishing income producing businesses to provide jobs for community members.
We are not particularly religious, and we have no bias against anyone.
We are not militaristic, but we will defend our community. We consider concealment to be the first line of defense, deterrence the second, and overwhelming force the last. We won’t demand anything, but we can help with training and equipment if you want or need it.
We believe in the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution. We aren’t interested in dictatorships, theocracies, socialism, communism, etc.
We believe we can produce everything needed in a permanently sustainable way by carefully balanced group members and activities.
We don’t want to do anything illegal.
If you are interested, contact me at professionaljoat at gmail dot com.

Nous sommes débutants mais commencons a
Hi, I am pretty new to prepping. With the recent threats from the North Korea, I have started a small group. We have started putting away supplies, we have enough right now to feed 5 people for 6 months. We do not have a bunker, but we do have a secret place to go if SHTF. My husband is a mechanic and can fix and weld anything. He also is a handy man, he can build a house from the ground up. I have my bachelors in computer science, a lot of good that will do me if anything does happen but I also have other skills. I am a skilled fighter, I can sew, farm, cook anything from anything. Advanced problem solving skills and I could lead a group effectively. I can think fast and provide solutions that work to keep people alive. I have back up plans to my back up plans. Literally, printed out.
Looking for honest, hardworking people. People that will work together under extreme stress and not turn on each other. People that are loyal, who look to work forward, not backward. I would like to start a new group so that we may learn and grow/prepare together. Interested, email me @aprillynn32 [at] live [dot] com
The Volusia County Prepping Group has been meeting monthly since 2011. We’re a preparedness education group – NOT a “survival group” or “mutual assistance group” or militia or anything like that. If you’re interested in learning and meeting like-minded folks, please check out our web site and join us at a meeting. There are no dues – we pass the jar for donations to rent the building for our meetings. If nothing else, you’ll probably find some good information on our web site.
Hello everyone, I am a 28-year-old female living in Pennsylvania looking for a group to join. Someone with like-minded people that don’t put people down but build each other up. We are in this to thrive not be divided by greed and or jealousy.
There is a lot for me to learn I am still new but I am taking up the trade of tanning and butchering I also know how to sew so I’m going to be working on making products from the tandem skins.
If anyone has a group that is willing to except another person and help them learn or you wish to start a group or community feel free to emailed me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com
Hello everyone my name is Dida
I am a newly surfaced proper I have always known the world was going to go to shit and have always wanted to prepare for it but I never knew prepping was such a thing until I discovered it on TV and then online. Right now I am doing it by myself and slowly because my family doesn’t want anything to do with it they feel it is childish and a waste of money and/or time.
So what I am looking for is I would like to find like-minded people to mentor me and guide me in this rough world. Eventually I would like to create a community in which we all support each other and thrive and survive in the world to come.
My skills are as followed
-I can fish and build a tent and fire from scratch
– I am good at first aid hopefully learning how to do sutures soon
– becoming better at identifying plants and using them medically.
I was in a prepper group a while ago but I had left due to the fact that a lot of the people there we’re putting others down for the lack of knowledge and kind of making them feel stupid. As well as making fun of me because of an illness I have which is cancer so that set me off the deep end and I left without questions asked. I want to find someone or people that don’t judge others for illnesses they have how they look or what they do or don’t know we are all in this together when shit hits the fan and we only to survive and learn together so that’s the kind of people I wish to be around
If you think you can help me in any way feel free to email me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com hope to talk to you soon
Admin Edit: Email the advice, or leave a contact (email as a contact was given above). To share specific tips and suggestions, please use the associated prepper forum, not the main site. Thanks!
I live in the OKC metro area and have been trying for years to connect with other preppers. My husband and I are particularly interested in formalizing our group and networking with other groups. A friend told me about this site. We are prep skill instructors for our new business, Stone Haven LLC. We also just published a book on starting and maintaining a prep group, which we have dubbed a Survival Alliance – available on Amazon. It’s called Survival Alliances and we are on FB under the same name. We are committed to helping folks whether they are just getting started or ready to start an alliance. We truly believe these groups will be places of safety for those who are properly prepared. Message me here or on FB if I can help.

My name is Thomas and I have a unique prepper group in Houston, Texas.
A little info on our group, our area our members are in is about a 600sq mile area and we also offer search and rescue services to those members. We have recently opted to allow people to join that don’t live near Houston but wish to be part of our Emergency Deployment Team,”EDT” at the direction of the staff of Gulf Coast Preppers. We are also looking for “EDT” members that own water craft equipment boats jetski to conduct water rescues, or k9 units for missing person trapped in building debris. Each week on Thursday we have a meeting discussing all things emergency preparedness and I will host it if someone isn’t doing so themself. The meeting is held on a 2 way radio application, you must be part of our Facebook page to get access, but we welcome all to join.
Mom, Grandma, and Granddaughter are looking for a prepper group in or around Guthrie, OK. We are new to all of this, having decided that enough was enough and we should probably have some kind of action plan to go on should SHTF. Not quite sure where to start, but we have decided our first priorities are to find a group (as we can’t exactly “Red Dawn” it, as my mother put it), and we need to start stocking up on food and water for what may be the inevitable.
I’m not quite sure what I could advertise as a “skill set” for us. My mother has worked reconning cars for years and is quite handy with most common car issues? I’m a medical biller with minimal actual surgical experience. I guess my post-apocalyptic life skill would be crocheting. Gotta have them blankets, scarfs, hats, stuffed animals etc lol. Any and all help/tips/guidance would be much appreciated. I see the links on the left hand side of the site for guides and blogs, etc, and will be looking more into them very shortly. Must ask that any and all contact (for the time being) be solely online as privacy is precious these days, as is security and safety. Thank you so much to you who is reading this, drop a message if you can, and have a happy day.
Anyone near us in a prepper group? We have a lot of time on our hands (retired) and want to step up our preps again. We’re interested in having contacts we can trust during a SHTF scenario. We hope we never need it, but it would be great to feel we had help during such a time.
Thanks for reading this. Hope we can meet up.
I have been Prepping for over 20 years, and have heard many scenario’s about what people think will be a safe haven if SHTF. So let me start by telling you this, To survive SHTF your biggest concern should be your family, neighbors, transients, and passer byes. The location you choose should not be in the mountains or 20 miles from the nearest hospital of law enforcement agency.
Now let me explain! If your intent is to fight the government and you think you can fend off an attack from a 10 man assault team of trained and battle ready soldiers! Think again. If you have to face a 10 man assault team, its going to be a bad day for everyone. Your team should be ready to fight only when protecting your family, friends, and your property and food supply. Now saying this the City is no place to be either. If you are in a big city when SHTF, your chances are drastically reduced. What is more secure than a hardened structure built by the government to house and secure people? You got it, I local Jail or Prison that can keep everybody safe when SHTF. If the government is after you, you can’t hide long. So in my opinion a secure Facility in a rural town with low population is the best place to defend your group. and you remain close enough for help and to others to set up bartering for supplies needed.
We have the perfect place to take a last stand. We are looking for individuals that want to join a group that are thinking outside of the box. I get a kick out of people that think they will survive in the woods and hunt their own food. There is a reason the hunter gatherers didn’t survive in the past. Always keep in mind that you will not be the only person in the woods that think the same way you do! Knowing that the hunter became the hunted is not a good feeling when you are trying to get sleep. Feel free to respond and we can talk more about our facility, lets see if we make a good match in prepping for the future. Thanks Tom
We are blessed to live on our North East Texas 50+ acre homestead full-time, to spend every day molding and shaping it’s potential into reality. We are long time preppers, and as a family, we have decided that we would like to offer the opportunity for certain folks to become a part of our community.
We have discussed a few potential options for folks (BOL versus full-time community), and welcome discussion as everyone is at a different place in their life. In addition, we offer the opportunity to build camaraderie, to develop and enhance our sustainability skill-set…to become a community BEFORE an event. This won’t be for everyone – It will require background checks, initial public meetings, time and financial commitments, (not those 10k buy-in things, but if you want to put a building here, etc.)
Mister is a former Marine, law enforcement officer and firearms instructor with 25+yrs of experience. Missus is an IT Professional by day, and homestead supermom by night. College freshman and fifth grader are cheerful farm hands. Extended family includes Army Ranger and Trauma Nurse. Dogs, barn kitty, chickens, ducks…there are always animals! We are a typical Christian family (not a militia) that loves to laugh, hike, watch movies, etc. We work very hard, and we try to play just as hard! We also work to ensure our family and our farm are prepared for any eventuality. You can email us via info [at] txexitstrategy [dot] com or visit that site for more info.
There is a “Preppers Paradise” that is up for sale around the corner from me.
I’m not into this for a dime, and don’t know the seller. The only reason I put this out is that I’d rather some good Prepper Folks buy it, instead of some drunken idiot from Chicago.
I have been to this property – it is a great deal. Very, very secluded. This is not for “Prepper Wannabes”. The people who buy this would have to have their act together. Yes……we do actually have Winter up here. If you want warm weather year round, then head down South, and join the crowds (key word: crowds!). One thing I always tell folks – in tough times, you’re number one advantage up here is LOW POPULATION DENSITY. Sorry, but the overwhelming majority of humans are idiots, and nor prepared for their next bowel movement. If 9/10 people are clueless, doesn’t it make sense to be in an area where there are many fewer people? Check this place out: http://tinyurl.com/preppermichigan
We have a small farm nearby. Would love to have some of you fine folks as neighbors. God Bless!
With all the issues with North Korea lately and other issues such as tornadoes, floods etc. starting to take prepping more seriouslly and would like to connect with others.
Right now just looking to meet other like minded people and learn strategies etc. but maybe eventually join a group. 30 y.o. male with a family. Can offer skills in the architectural / construction field including help with building bunkers, security etc. No criminal background, college educated, but don’t hold it against anyone who is not. Not religious but not irresponsible either. Thanks.
Hello, My name is Thomas
I’m in the early stages of putting together a prepper group for the Houston area, but will only consider serious preppers.
I’m looking for people who must hold a minimum of a Amateur Radio License “Tech” or above , since this is an emergency preparedness group this is a must, anyone who needs assistance in study material or help please contact me.
We are Hoping to get this going soon, and anyone who has experience in medical ,rescue,bushcraft survival ect, is welcome to call 2eight1-6zero8-363five to learn more. This will be a well diverse group, once we get established the plan is to set up Multi mutual aid agreements with other groups around the state of Texas. If you have any questions or would like to join you may email me at txtom86 [at] gmail [dot] com, or call me at 2eight1-6zero8-363five
While I don’t have the greatest knowledge of how to go about being self-sufficient and prepared, I do have a house on 24 beautiful acres, and I’m learning more all of the time. I moved here by myself with a desire to start a more self-sufficient, healthy, and generous lifestyle. I am a 37-year-old, Christian male with a full-time job. I work from home here, and my place is between Bolivar and Buffalo. If there are others who are looking to be more self-sufficient and who are interested in joining me in developing that type of lifestyle here, let me know!
I will be facilitating a preparedness meet up for 5 consecutive Wednesdays starting Sept 27, 2017 thru Oct 25, 2017 from 6pm to 8pm at Rogers City Library 131 E. ERIE ST, ROGERS CITY, MI
mtg held in the Constance Jordan room.
We will cover all aspects of emergency preparedness. Interested in teaching a segment…message me…we are always looking for speakers. Family friendly event, snacks provided…taste test various freeze dried food. FREE class…free will donations accepted.
Bring a friend!
I’m looking to find other preppers or suvivalists in Custer County area.
We (family of 4 myself36/wife35/son13/son6) are located in Maine. We live on private 50 acres on a long dead end dirt road. I believe that my property would be very defensible in SHTF with the right people. There’s more about the defensible aspects of our property that I do not want to say here.
We are currently doing many advanced preps that i will not go into. We have a field started for garden/pasture approx 8 acres. We have a large barn. Starting to raise meat rabbits and chickens, goats and ducks. We are also doing other medium scale things to our property to help with agricultural production and self sufficiency. I think that it is important to be well rounded in my preps by having quality tactical gear, arms, ammo, ect. and important items to be able to charge batteries and other misc things like doing laundry, along with stocking up on other important items like food, canning supplies, tools for cutting fire wood ect. But all in all none of it will amount to anything if I do not have two things in place… one being our ability to grow, raise, and preserve our own food and the other defending what we have at SHTF.
Currently we plan to have two other families that plan to join us when everything falls apart. We are in need of someone with real tactical combat experience. (ie real Military experience) I’m not talking about someone who has been through boot camp and never deployed. I am hoping to find an experienced military man (with family?) that can train with us regularly before shtf and also help plan for strategic defenses of the property. Also a medic would always be needed. Aside from that I honestly think that some other local friends that i know that are prepping would be just fine if we needed more bodies. All in all we are very well rounded. We make our own soap. Can fix vehicles, tinker, do carpentry, farm, ect. I plan to have 4+/- families at our retreat after shtf.
Some basic requirements I would have would be regular biweekly/monthly training meetings, maintaining a years+ supply of food, byo AR-15 with ammo. Always would welcome help ‘on the farm’ if you can make the time. If qualified and relocating i would be willing to rent our other house out to you. We are not looking for any free loaders before or after shtf. Everyone must carry there own weight after shtf and before… well if we don’t work we don’t eat. I would assume you would have or find a normal job to support yourself unless you have a pension.
Our family and one of the othes are genuine bible believing born again christians. Although i myself am very much against the tide of modern day christianity and have only recently tried to start to go to church. I have been a believer for 17 years and have a strong faith in Jesus and a very fluent bible knowledge. I do not state that to segregate. Well, I’ve probably said too much about my plans, but i am hopeful that it will help bring forth some people who have some serious skill to join us.
Oh, if you already live in Maine and want to plan to bug out with us (instead of move close by) that could work too as long as you still would hold regular meeting/training schedule. Hopefully if nothing else this leads to a life long friendship.
