UPDATE Nov 1, 2016: NEW RECRUITING NOW CLOSED. If we open again for new members, I’ll post a new thread. Until then, please consider this thread closed. Thanks.
Dedicated, organized, group looking to add members. We’re in Castle Rock, CO and currently have 5 full members with 6 or 8 more currently under consideration. We have some serious medical expertise, a couple firearms professionals, and various other skills currently, but need more of everything – especially military (combat!) experience.
My wife and I have been preppers for more than a decade. We’re in our late 30s/early 40s and trying to get back into shape. Most of us are Christian, but you’re free to practice religion however you choose. What’s not negotiable, however, is trust – we have to get to know you and feel comfortable with you before a formal invitation will be extended.
We don’t ask for you to contribute any supplies to the group, but we do have personal supply minimums for you and your family so that we know you won’t drain current group supplies. Donations are appreciated so that our team leaders can enhance our current capabilities, but not required.
If you’re considering voting for Hillary or Bernie, keep scrolling. You’re looking at the wrong group.
We’d love to find a place to bug-out to, but pending that, we’re gathering in a few proximate homes and making a go of it together with as low of a profile as we can. If we outgrow our current location, we have other options we’ll pursue should it come to that.
We’re not anti-government, but we feel that it’s our responsibility to take care of each other, not the government’s responsibility to take care of us. We’re not a militia, but we do require our members each own a rifle and be willing to learn to shoot with us.
If you become a full member, expect monthly full-group meetings and frequent additional team meetings, depending on which teams you’re interested in (aligned with skills and interests). Our goal is 20 dedicated adults, but 30 or even more is possible with the right people – and that gives us far more long-term survival options. Zero OPSEC or security concerns with any of our members or you’re out. No hard feelings, but we won’t compromise on that.
We want team leaders and anyone willing to contribute. We need fresh ideas. If you’re along for the ride, or “oh well Steve is good at that, so I’ll let Steve take care of that stuff,” this isn’t the group for you. We’re “all in” and we expect the same from you.
We’re a group of moral, honest people looking to join together to weather hard times. We’re committed to each other and to making each other stronger. We’re organized and we’re motivated. We have each other’s backs. We take care of each other and we’re committed to keeping it that way.
In dark times, we want to be a light; we strive to help our community and help those less fortunate. We aim to be a beacon of hope and to get our community back on its feet. But we can’t do that if we’re stuck focusing all our time and energy on Maslow’s Physiological needs (the bottom row on the pyramid).
We will maintain our honor and our moral fortitude so that we can be an example to those around us. Without honesty, all is already lost. “With firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
PM and we’ll go grab coffee and chat. We need to trust each other or this doesn’t work. Thanks, and God Bless all of you.
