Howdy.

New here and recently back in SW NM. Got a lot on my agenda.

First of all, I’m hoping to network with fellow patriots/Constitutionalists, especially Christians and preppers. I’m a veteran of the Airborne Infantry and I’ve studied military history so I have some skills to draw on should the Cold Civil War turn hot out here. Unfortunately, I’m only now starting to get some food reserves built up. I mention all that just to let you know where I stand. I’m not looking to lean on anybody or be a parasite. I don’t take without contributing or giving back. When the SHTF I’d like to know where friendlies are in my area. You know the deal–safety in numbers; mutual defense, somebody you can trust on your flank.

Secondly, before the SHTF, I would like to join or start a home church/home Bible study somewhere near the Artesia area, possibly as far south as Carlsbad or north as Roswell. I believe the true Church (not the apostate church) will soon need to move underground, as it had to in most countries around the world for most of AD history. The time to make the transition is now, while some of our freedom is still intact.

Thirdly (and I mention this just in case, because it is necessary in my current situation) I am looking to buy a home somewhere around here. Not in a town or crammed too close to neighbors. Preferably with at least a few acres. Shop, pole barn or big garage is almost a necessity, too. Well water. Existing fence would be nice. Don’t know how much time America has, but I would like a place to raise my son and where the dogs can run before our borrowed time runs out.

If I sound like a radical wingnut doomsdayer, well, guilty as charged.

The company I work for recently purchased 120+ acres of land bordering state trust land in Arizona. We are in the process of purchasing another 200+ adjoining acres. We are going to be letting people use 1/4 acre parcels,  1/2 acre parcels with a few 1 acre parcels in our prepper compound. User will be responsible for obtaining and providing to us a background check, providing a resume for adults and a phone interview with a probable follow up in person interview.  There is already a community well drilled to meet water needs.  A 300 gallon water tank can be filled in 10 minutes flow and supply is great.
Our goal when SHTF is to establish a self sustaining prepper community with a mix of people from all backgrounds and experiences. We want nurses, nurse practitioners, doctors, teachers, military, farmers, contractors, preachers and more. By the time we are done we anticipate having 60-75 families using 400+ private acres as a bugout location when the need arises. Currently we have 1 nurse, 1 nurse practitioner, two former military, a general contractor, a farmer and a former state trooper (and their families) as well as emplyees from the company with various skills and their families.
Each person on their parcel will be able to pull up an RV/5th wheel, camp, or build a cabin etc . You can fence it your parcel as well. There is a community well already set up, power will be by wind, solar or generator on your lot. You will be able to start a garden on your lot, raise rabbits or chickens etc to help provide for your family. Come and camp or live there full time it is yours to do as you wish but when SHTF you will have a great bugout location if you choose not to live there beforehand.
We will be reserving a large portion of the land for community gardens, rabbit pens and chicken coops, and other food sources to assist with food for community members.  We also have plans to build a chapel, a covered community activities area, and more. Parcels will circle this area for easy access for all parcels.
All resources are on site from water, to heavily wooded areas to pasture and meadows. In a SHTF scenario not only will we be able to provide for the compound but will have enough rabbits and chickens as well as vegtables and fruits to hopefully barter/sell for things we can not produce ourselves.

Let me be clear here on this.  We are not looking to overthrow the government, take over the world or anything else.  We would encourage each resident to have a firearm for hunting and self defense purposes if needed but this is not a requirement.  The goal is a safehaven for members to provide for themselves and family when SHTF, or a nice quiet place to live, or vacation to camp etc until SHTF.  Once SHTF this will become a survival situation and we are trying to help make that as easy as possible for you but please do not show up with no knives, tents, sleeping bags etc.  You need to prepare for this ahead of time and have that sort of stuff easily accessable in a bugout situation.  If this is not possible let us know and we may be able to purchase it and store it on site for you.

There is a $50 non refundable application fee to be considered for a parcel.   You will be required to provide a copy of a background check for each adult person that will be on the property.  No pedophiles, violent offenders etc.  I will have my wife and kids there and this will be a safe place for them when SHTF so that type stuff will not be let in.  There will be a $50 monthly fee for 1/4 acre lots and a $75 monthly fee for 1/2 acre lots and $100 monthly fee for 1 acre lots. This money will be used among other things to add in community rabbit pens, rabbits, chicken coops,chickens, cattle, dig ponds to be stocked with fish, gardens and more plus community center area, community kitchens for those that dont build, extra water storage tanks and more.

If or when you are selected there will be a $500 fee to pick your parcel for any size. Selection will come in order of the fee being paid. There are some premium parcels that we assume will go first that back up to Arizona State Trust land and the one acre parcels. With no difference in the reservation fee we assume they will go first.  Two weeks after acceptance you will be removed from the approval list if the selection fee has not been paid or other arrangements have not been made.(we can work with you but need to know) We can barter for the $500 fee on a  few lots for some things.  Contact us with those requests and offers.

Do the math we are not doing this to get rich.  Our cost of the land once the last acquisitions are made will be probably in the $400k-500k range.  Even if every lot was 1 acre $100 monthly lots it would take us 10 years to get our money back out and that does not include all the upgrades we will be doing, animals, garden expenses etc.  We are doing this to give our employee families the best situation to be in when SHTF and we feel that is with a good group of people from all walks of life.

No freeloaders.  Once SHTF (and it eventually will) you will be required to maintain your own parcel, garden, rabbits etc as well as work on the community gardens etc  each day to ensure as a collective we can supplement when we need to for all members.

We are going to be looking for  a year round resident for the compound for security, and upkeep, take care of community rabbits and garden in exchange for a fee free 1 acre parcel and possibly once the lots are leased out a salary.  Parcel owners will be able to work out an agreement with that person for various things like raising your own set of rabbits on your parcel, spreading your rabbit poop on a portion of your land where you want your garden to fertalize it, possibly a garden and more.  We can provide the Rabbit hutches and assembly on your parcel for $175 each otherwise you will be responsible for assembly and delivery.  One buck and two does price is $75.  These will be well bred New Zeleand White meat rabbits.  They will be younger so they can be used for a while for breeding before .  I am sure you can work with him/her once we get them hired to actually process and sell your rabbits if wanted for some income to cover your monthly fees.

There will be sensible contracts to be signed for both our protection and yours.  Pretty much dont be a disruptive drunk, drug user or get arrested for a sex crime, or violent crime and not freeloading and you can stay as long as you want as long as your monthly fees are paid.  Do any of those things and unfortunately we will need to part ways.  If thats you please dont waste either of our times.
If you are interested please leave your contact info below and I will email you all the details or email me directly at (smallminers at yahoo dot com)

I have been doing survival since the 60’s, live in the Delaware Water Gap area of NJ and frequent the Kittatinny range out here hunting, fishing and living off the land. Looking for others with a similar interest to teach and hone skills for any disasters. What you may not know is that if you live on the island of Manhattan you may be in for a surprise if the S%$^ hits the fan. May be starting a survival class during the upcoming 2016 year in this area.

We are a Christian family of 4, currently located in Littleton, Co. We have been prepping for over 2 years, and feel like we are ready to contribute to a larger prepping community. I am a Navy corpsman Veteran, and currently a nurse. My husband has been in construction his whole life, and is currently now in electrical, and can build anything. We have been looking into buying land of our own before the end of this year, but can also contribute to land already acquired. Please contact me if we seem like a good fit.
