As people preparing for the future, and members of this forum, we all understand that one of the keys to survival is a community. Someone we can rely on and trust, share information with and to ultimately ensure the future of ourselves and our families. My brother and I have come to realize this and are looking to build onto the small community we have already started. We have about 20 or so people with family members. Each of us bringing different skills to the table in a collective we hope will carry us through anything that would happen. The location we have is in Northern Wisconsin with an abundance of natural resources and plans to install items to help with sustainability. We meet up three or four times a year to assist and train ourselves in the case of a situation. Our training includes, firearms, basic survival, team movements, reaction drills, general gear inspection and making plans for the next time. We are not militant types, anti-government or anything along those lines. We are moral, American value driven community of men and women looking to ensure the safety and the security of our families future. I wouldn’t say this a recruitment post, but more of a general call for fellowship and the open flow of communication. If anyone is interested feel free to respond or private message me. I’d be happy to answer any questions. Look forward to hearing from you.

“Read more about us on page 146 of Lights Out by Ted Koppel!”

Friends,  we have had a TON of success networking with other preppers across the country, but mostly on the East Coast.  When we saw there was a lack of good expos out there, as a place for people to get quality education and products and services, we decided to do something about it, and that’s where EC PREPCON was born.  We’re now on our 5th show, and in the past, have had folks like Ted Koppel come through when he was researching for his acclaimed book, Lights out.  You can actually read about a past show on page 146 of his book.

Scott Hunt of Practical Preppers will be our keynote speaker.  NYTimes bestselling author on survival will also be there.  Former SWAT officer Jay Blevins from Doomsday Preppers will be sharing about surviving active shooter situations, and there will be many more top notch speakers, over 100 tables of survival and preapredness vendors and services, and we’re evening doing ON THE FLOOR special classes, as well as a back to the good old days film on self-reliance will be premiering there!  You can find more info at http://www.sepsllc.com/#!ec-prepcon-v/c129z, or you can follow us on Twitter @sepsllc, or on FB https://www.facebook.com/sepsllc.

Hi I’m Chris.  I’m relatively new to prepping only having come across the concept about half a year ago when I read through the “Going Home” 7 book series in about a month (awesome read).  Politically I’m a moderate and open minded letting myself make decisions for me on what is best for myself, my community and my country. Religiously I’m a born-again Christian after a divorce a few years ago.  I’m a 29 year old male originally from rural Georgia having grown up on a chicken farm and having a deep love for nature, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and anything that happens outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of what our society calls “life”….not a big believer of that.  I’m finishing up my PhD in Microbiology and Immunology in May so I’m a highly educated country boy with a love of the outdoors, shooting (particularly long range marksmanship…love my 300 win mag sniper rifle…can do inch and half groups at 300 yards 🙂 ) and a deep discontentment with where society is headed.  I’m especially talented with a microscope and a rifle,  🙂 not very common for sure, and I’m looking to join a group that can teach me more about prepping and allow me to give back to the group so we can all thrive.  I’m looking to contribute and put in some hard work for the betterment of the community.  I’m 6’4” and 250 lbs with an athletic build so I’m capable of doing some heavy lifting where its needed.  Being a grad student finances aren’t my current strength but I can definitely help out labor wise.  Let me know how I can help and become a part of your group.

Confused as to Next Steps in Preparing? 

The present facts of our current and emerging reality coupled with your gut-level intuition about what is getting ready to happen can no longer be ignored…we are heading for a major life-altering event. You’ve come to the unsettling conclusion that there are too many danger signals to deny.

Rather than waiting until you’re facing fundamental societal change to determine how ready you are, the wise choice would be to join a group that is serious about preparing for an event. We have been preparing for several years to shelter our membership and sustain our existence for many years afterwards at a secluded and secured location with full-spectrum provisions for long-term survivability.

Our 50-acre retreat has all of the needs necessary for long-term survival under any circumstances with all of the housing, agricultural, domestic/wild game, and energy technology solutions necessary for thriving and not just surviving.

Who We Are

We have organized a retreat community made up of hard-working and dedicated folks committed to preparing for an event. Many of our membership are former military so we bring that self-discipline and spirit of camaraderie. Skilled medical personnel as well as all of the necessary disciplines for all aspects of a working society are part of our ranks.

Our leadership team, composed of former military,  is guided by a 360+ page operations manual to support our members. We have also developed a separate 200-page Retreat Activation & Security Protocol which has been reviewed and critiqued by several retired military officers and several security systems experts.

Our motto is: Plan, Prepare, and Practice. Consequently, we have extensive skills, safety, survival and defensive training sessions with skilled professionals. An extensive list of training topics covers all areas of maintaining and further development of a self-sustaining and secure community that can prosper over time rather than dwindle and become vulnerable.

We are looking for team-oriented individuals that bring useful skills and positive “can do” attitudes to the table with committed families to actively participate in and further develop what we have achieved so far in the following areas:

 

There May Be A Place for You in Our Community

We are seeking additional skills to add to our mix. No anti-government types, militants or racists. We are Constitutionalists and despite a major concern in how our government is run—we are pro-America. Prospective members go through a vetting process that includes email interviews, telephone interviews, face-to-face interviews, as well as background and criminal checks.

Although we are secular, we are principally Christian but will consider all religions (or non-religious types). We are not “Bible-thumpers” but we do have deep moral, spiritual and ethical beliefs. We review our mission, vision and core values at every meeting and have a 12-page set of rules to govern behavior.

If you have been prepping for a while and want to affiliate with a well-organized, like-minded group in North Carolina, then ask for an application. We start with a phone call first. If we each see a shared vision and compatibility, we will share an extensive list of features within our community that we have barely hinted at in this introduction.

If your family’s security and safety is critical to you and you live in North Carolina, Virginia or South Carolina, contact us today and we will send you an in depth description along with a link to a video about the group.  If you are still interested, we can discuss requirements.  Contact me via email: sgtprepper2 (at) gmail (dot) com to request more info,  an application and list of further requirements.

We are committed—are you?

I have lived in the Milwaukee area nearly all my life and have begun to take the idea of prepping rather seriously. Given the current (real) state of the economy and the inevitability of financial collapse across all sectors, I have taken it upon myself to put a modest initial investment into getting my preps started. Aside from gear, food and water, I am also prior service, I was 11B (Infantry) in the Army and still retain a decent amount of what I learned through those years of training. I do realize that even if I were to have the best gear and training, it still would not supersede the need for having a group with whom one could rely when society comes unglued and WROL is the name of the game. I have tried to engage my peers but so far they remain uninterested and think that their happy go lucky lifestyle will go on forever . So I turn to this forum and I’m looking for anyone in the Milwaukee area with which to talk to and possibly meet up. There’s only so many Youtube videos I can watch before they all start repeating themselves and I would like the chance to hear from real people who’ve done this for a while.

Thanks in advance

Looking for a place to live around other like-minded individuals, a place where you and your loved ones can make your permanent prepare in place home on 1/2 acre? Are you looking for a place to not only live and learn, but teach others how to live a new beginning on your own leased property?

A place is being created for like-minded individuals to share their knowledge and skills with others, and to learn from other experienced people who are already preparing.

Many are waking up to the fact that a myriad of things are beginning to happen and will increase in intensity in the short time we have left to get ready.

Anyone who has done their homework knows the safest place to be is away from the coastlines, and any land mass subject to liquifaction during earthquakes. A spot, high on the plateau of the Missouri Ozarks, on the backside of a mountain, was chosen as a safe haven where even the flash floods climate change is bringing will not affect residents living there.

We are looking for good, stable like-minded families and individuals with the necessary skills to contribute a self-sustaining life. There are openings for Animal Husbandry, Carpentry, Construction, Electrical (alternative), Gardening and Farming, Medical, Blacksmithing, Repurposing, Salvaging, and Security.

If you know it is time to get out of Dodge, that no one awake can afford to wait to build a self-sustaining life, and that there is more safety in numbers with other like-minded individuals, then contact us now for more information. You will receive an email questionaire to fill out and return to save time because as we all know……we don’t have much time left to prepare!.

We are still looking for decent people to join up with here in Missouri, we live in Central Missouri . Are there any preppers/homesteaders here in Missouri that want to join hands and work together towards a safe place for their families. Are there communities out there that are not “out there”, weird, extremist !!!!!. We are hard working, skilled, smart, with good morals and values. We are a family of three, my husband, son (15) and myself. I don’t care if you or I can run marathons, shot like an FBI agent, or can lift x amount of weights. Can you grow a garden, milk a cow, make cheese, raise eggs, the basics to taking care of your family. We can. Oh we are skilled hunters, my husband is a machinist by trade, I worked in dentistry for 20 years. I know own a in home bakery. Our son is very hard working and works along side his dad. He is home schooled so he is getting a good education. We are and would be a great asset to a group of GOOD people.That is just to name a few good things about us. Just finding them is the problem. If you are out there and are looking for a good family to join you. Just email me at sparcrzie2 (at) yahoo dot com . I won’t leave messages on here.

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

Hi Friends,

We are a Christian Family with a small homestead in the beautiful and pristine U.P. of Michigan. There are many people who may not be able to purchase rural acreage, and they sometimes join in with a Prepper Group.
If you are a healthy family, or couple that would like a place to spend the Summer, maybe we should talk.
We are looking for a family that is Christian, and would like to park their Travel Trailer out back here on our land – in exchange for helping out around the place.
Of course, it would have to be the right “fit” for both of us.
Possibly even people that wanted to learn some farming skills.
Spring is here, and Summer is on the way.

Thank you for your time and consideration! I sincerely hope to hear back from any Preppers who are interested in making a connection in order to start building a bugout location, community and ensure we are all taken care of with proper bugout bags and info needed.

ok–here goes. let’s get this out of the way—WE ARE SENIORS and retired. we are not hard core preppers but believe in being ready which may qualify as prepping. currently live in low lands of orlando fl–nice but not the best area for surviving longer term. we are looking for north ga, or ozark plateau are to resettle. Unfortunately spent out lives raising kids and working not in any trades tho. no real skills to offer any hard core group so not looking for this because can’t contirbute the way they want. was wondering if there are any like minded people out there that have “seniors” ready to help each other and get ready for whatever. we are mobile, regular church goers. and have been getting ready some but are waiting to get to an area and then go all out to get what we need–feel there is no sense trying to get things here and then trying to move them northward. will be definitely going north to above area just looking for the right community,
any thoughts suggestions would be appreciated.
P.S. I am surprised how little communications or ideas are out there for seniors —maybe like us they got or are too complacent. believe me packing up to move at our age is not high on our list but I am convinced the SWHTF starting wih financial , then biblical / natural events/ then government not neccesarily in that order.
thanks for reading

Hi WA Preppers,

Just a bit of an intro. I’ve been interested in prepping for many years but have been a bit slack in actually getting around to doing much. I’ve made a bit of a start this year and am keen to keep pressing on with it. I’ve got some basic water storage, I’m doing stock rotation of food, am keeping fit and have a few basic medical bits of equipment and a few plans to defend my house. I’m not preparing for any specific scenario, just trying to be ready for any of a big number of things that could go wrong.

A bit about me: early 40s, city worker type, two kids (which is a bit of a motivator to get a move on with my prepping!)

I was wondering if anyone might be interested to meet up some time. Maybe bounce around some ideas about specifics of how to prep in Perth. For example, what if a massive fire swept through the city or more generally, this is a town where lots of water is a good thing. Perhaps lunch or drinks in the city, in the interests of being fairly central?  If there’s interest, how about the last week of March this year (i.e. the week before Easter)?  Happy to make it lunch if people can make it, otherwise maybe drinks one evening.

Cheers,

Perth Prepper
