Hello, my name is Randy, and I am a sincere, Jesus-following Christian. I spent four years in the United States Marines Corps and was honorably discharged, and am also an Eagle Scout. With that said, I am one of those “insane preppers” which is not so insane. I am not only preparing basic supplies, but also have extensive knowledge on group protection techniques when anarchy hits. It is true that within a week or two of everything going down, that your neighbor will likely become your enemy as people literally, in some instances, will kill for your food (including gangs). I am looking for active participants in this group and allow for those who cannot care for themselves to come along with active participants. This will be like the early church in Acts, and all will be interviewed with God’s discernment to make sure we have no wolves in our group. All accepted individuals will be required to stock supplies for themselves and their families for at least two months. There will also be vital information relayed to the group for further supplies. I am not in this for a penny of profit, just for love of my sisters and brothers when we will rely solely on our Father in heaven. Do not expect the government to supply anything including police protection. Understand that we are being grossly lied to regarding the impending devastating effects of the Coronavirus effecting the economy, and all government operations eventually. The time to act is NOW!

Looking to communicate with like minded people.

seeking to put together a group of talented professionals with different talents and skills.

Security in numbers.

I am starting to gather the essentials but would be easier if a group of us had different items to store.

Hope to find some like minded people.

Thanks

Hello all, I’m Jess & I’m a 34 year old mother of 2 daughters (8 years & 4 years). I’ve been prepping for a few years now, I have food, water & some supplies.

I worked in the health field for over 10 years as a medical assistant in urgent care/home nurse, I only left last year to care for family.

Right now I’m very concerned with what our nation is facing & want to protect my girls, my only problem is I do not have a bug out location. I know most of you will not give this a second thought because you don’t know me at all & I do not blame you for that at all, but I’m just hoping someone out there can help me & my girls take refuge somewhere safe, this is my hail Mary.

I’m in a large home now, with too many people to isolate us here & we have no family that can take us in. We need to be with people who take this lifestyle serious & lessen the threat, instead of increasing it.

I’d like to leave to that location as soon as agreed upon/as necessary if threat becomes more severe, to prevent any risk of infection from this virus.

I offer manual labor, health care & knowledge, child care, rent, cooking, stocking, & am able to defend myself/others (Qualified as Sharpshooter in the Army) if ever needed. I’m very hardworking, loyal, smart & quick in a crisis situation.

If this is something you would even consider, please contact me & we can Facetime or talk over the phone to discuss any concerns/details! Thank you so much!

Hi!

We are a Christian family (with military and LEO) with a homestead of just under 100 acres in NE Texas, approximately ~100 miles from Dallas-TX, Texarkana-AR, Shreveport-LA and Atoka-OK. Not a militia or compound.

We have house, barn, guest houses, storage buildings, etc. We have fall back communities, but want to build a strong community on our existing ranch. This would be an opportunity for individuals or families to prep on our land. This is not an offer to provide free housing or financial support for individuals or families. Beautiful property with creeks, ponds and 25+acres of pasture for gardens, fruit trees, woods, plenty of wild game and training range. Hidden hollow on dead end gravel county road. Interested people please contact txexit at protonmail.

Thank You!

If you are interested, or have any questions for me that cannot be posted here please email me at: [email protected]

 

sincerely,

Soul

Hello I’m Jason. I’m new to the ventura area and am looking for a group of like minded people/preppers to possible join. I’m 29, grew up in a God fearing home with a father who’s been preeping for as long as I can remember. I now am family man, professional carpenter, skilled shot, very athletic and knowledgable about survival skills. I believe I could be most beneficial to someone who like prepping but maybe is less skilled when in comes to security. I’m willing to trade my security skills for a mutual platonic friendship. There’s strength numbers. Keep in mind I have my own preps and means to provide for my family for a long time so I’d be non burdensome.

Hello all, I’ve lived in Arizona about 5 years now from northern Michigan. 36 years old, single, never married, no kids. Even though I have no kids or partner, I’m very family orientated. I’ve always been an avid outdoorsman including much hunting and off grid camping. I’ve always been the type to be prepared for anything in all situations and have been trying to build up my supplies over the years. With cash and space being a little tight I haven’t built up a whole lot but I still believe I have a lot to offer a group. I work as a handyman here and built houses back in Michigan so I can fix or build just about anything and have been known to make things work with what is on hand. I feel these skills would come in very helpful to a group. If anyone is interested in know more about me and what I’ve currently gather, please let me know! It would be great to hear from like minded people.

We have 12 acres of pasture land/woods with deep well and acre pond looking for others to discuss originating a group or joining a group in Stanly County NC. We are former members of a group in NC that we felt was too far away to be practical. Needless to say we have stores of supplies and would ask that others have or start collecting same. We are committed Christians and seek other followers.

Hi there, I posted back in 2017 that i was putting my mother in a nursing home and i was looking for a group to join. Well, She is about to die so i will be ready to move in early spring

I have an idea of what is coming as i have studied Prophecy and Geopolitics for years, 59 Years old now and in relatively good health

God seems to be calling his people to the Ozarks area, Southern Mo and Northern AR Which is where i will hopefully end up, Although Northern Idaho seems to be an option as well

I have the usual collection of survival equipment, Some of which i know how to use and some i don’t, Too busy working.

I saw a response to Ann that said the most important thing in a group is “Trust” I am trustworthy and a Bible believing Christian, A simple man who just wants some peace and quiet. I do have three cats and they are non negotiable, My only family

You can contact me at [email protected] if you have any interest, Thanks and God Bless

I am interested to know if anyone in Arizona is interested in having a conversation as a means of getting acquainted. Topics I would encourage are general disaster preparedness, bug-out bags, logistics, skill bartering and so on. Those who are situated in ‘outlying areas’, meaning the non-Phoenix metro vicinity are preferable, at least to me. Even if you do reside in the Phoenix area let’s talk/text/email

Good day all,

Ron’s the name, glad to meet you. I am a 49yo family man in the Lewisville/ flower mound tx are. Looking to join or even start a small group of like minded individuals. I have prepped for only a couple of years. Want to be able to take care of my family best I can should disaster strike.

A little about me, family man, do believe jesus is my lord and savior, retired US Army combat arms soldier so very skilled in warfare and tactics. Very honorable family and we expect the same.

I guess my dream scenario would be to have a small group of friends that I could depend on should something bad happen, to have multiple locations within the group we could go or link up. To provide the same for other “friends. If this sounds like you I would love to chat and see if things click. My email is below so please feel free to write. Take care, god bless and be safe.

Hi Everyone, If 2019 was not enough, election year 2020 portends to be quite another raucous year.  Are y’all prepared for whatever comes our way.  Sending out a general notice to see if there’s interest in meeting.  Determine what we all or don’t have in common.  Stuff, yes.  Skills, that too.  And, oh ya, survival (is that too touchy of a subject?).  If so, maybe this is not for you.

Let’s kick the New Year off running.

 

Sincerely, Spurtwo.

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 PM and leave your email address.

Let’s talk.

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.
