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.

Need a Bug Out Spot to Park your Travel Trailer?

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.
