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.
