I am not a group or organization, nor do I teach any classes.  I am a Woodswoman/Survivalist seeking Survivalists and Preppers in their 30’s and 40’s.  I am located in Upper Marlboro, and looking for people with a lot of stamina, within reasonable distance for weekend excursions into the woods and possibly camping at some point.  Big game hunters and gun enthusiasts welcome.

I believe that work compatibility is just as important for survival in the woods as skill set, which is why I am appealing to this age group.

Hello, we are looking for families or individuals to join our group.

We are offering a safe location to retreat to in the event of a crisis in exchange for help with security and everyday tasks.

We have housing infrastructure in place for around 20-25 members on roughly 50 acres with gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. Everything is setup and ready to go. There is also a written contract in place to protect everyone’s interests.

Our members our expected to have at least a year supply of food, other supplies, personal defense and ammo. New members are given a timeline to acquire food and supplies to be fair to existing members. Everyone must be an asset and not a liability.

We prep for anything that might make cause for martial law.  (Financial collapse, cyber-attack, epidemic, war, EMP, Carrington Event, major Cascadia earthquake or at New Madrid.)

Please reply only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Sandpoint, ID.

We don’t meet in person right away, only after learning more about each other first through emails.

If you would like to contact us we prefer if you use an encrypted email address such as Protonmail or Hushmail just for a little more security.

If you are interested you can email us at js47783 [at] protonmail [dot] com

Look forward to hearing from you.

Hello, our group is in the Branson, Mo area and interested in speaking with people that have structured goals and prepping skills. We are army trained and police background so we need serious candidates that would enjoy 500 acres of ground. Looking for able bodied, likeminded individuals, couples and possibly families. Currently, we would like help with large scale gardening, animal care, chores, mowing etc, we have over 2 miles of river frontage and a park like setting. We do not need drama, issues or welfare recipients, all of us work 80+ hours at work and at our site.

Further inquiries are face to face and we back ground check every person wishing to join us. We have over 18 years at this location and only intend to improve it. We can be reached at showmeacure at gmail dot com.

A warning about Internet predators targeting preppers

A warning about Internet predators targeting preppers
Jul 172017
 

The online prepper community is, like the rest of the Internet, the target of scammers & predators. From time to time the admins here are made aware of people posting on the site who are targeting preppers in the hope of selling them places in communities that don’t exist or real estate deals that are nothing more than scams. (There are also sexual predators known to troll online forums – so please, take all care in information you divulge & in agreeing to “meets”)

We do our best to investigate the warnings, taking the offending posts offline while we do. BUT, it’s not easy trying to get the facts from authorities re: ongoing investigations – or even getting them to confirm an investigation is in progress. Some of these ‘warnings’ talk about ‘a friend of a friend’ or ‘someone I know’ with little or no detail – making getting to the facts & the ability to verify any claims of wrongdoing by the poster, almost impossible.

So do yourself a favor – before parting with your hard earned money – check out posters before parting with any money. Ask to talk with others who are happy investors/members, ask to visit these places they are selling – do your homework! The Internet is NOT a safe place & scammers prey on those who are naive, desperate & afraid. Don’t be a victim.

We continue to try & keep this site as safe as we can, but predators will always find new ways to try to part you from your money!

I was recently with a prepper group. Like minded working on a complete off grid life. Gardens, fields, livestock all brought in. Wells drilled. Construction of buildings for housing, storage and livestock.

What I brought to the group, 15 years combat medicine. An understanding of theoretical physics. Off the grid engineering. A medic is useful but only if you are injured. My knowledge of physics and engineering is what was most beneficial. Understanding how to build fuel cells. Using water to power a combustion engine. Building generators that were self powering, required no fuel once started. A generator powered by gravity (now this one been having output issues, works just not much energy)

Other then basic maintenance and replacing worn parts, everything wears out in time. The generators and fuel cells were no cost. It allowed for things to be built more remote. Allowed for basic creature comforts. Allowed for construction of aquaponic systems. The cost to run pumps and lights negated.

I am no longer with the group. Their direction becoming more militia style. Not my style, I prefer to remain unnoticed.

Now, I am not looking for a particular group. In a position with friends of 20+ years. Individuals I trust with my life. I do still actively work on my little projects. Still build items, test items and work to better and get more out of them. Such as the fuel cell, attempting to build a grill/stove/fire place that burns water.

What I offer to a group or individual is the ability to become more self sufficient and more off grid. I can and will consider building certain items. Obviously nothing is free, there is a materials cost, fair compensation for the time it takes.

I have seen various groups, as mentioned was part of a group. I will not disclose my location for personal safety concerns. I will only meet in a public location of my choosing. And it is highly likely you would meet only a messenger.

What I can do for you, off the grid. Provide electricity with no emissions. Little to no heat signature. Fuel cells (these are rather expensive to build, depending on what it is for extremely heavy). A smaller version can run a chain saw. Connecting your saw to the cell similar to having an electric saw. The power is not as great on the saw as gas, the fact powered by water a fair trade. Antenna systems…tv, wifi, radio. Glow lights, solar recharging glow sticks. No solar panels, I use chemicals that store solar energy, react with each other producing light. Stable fire starters, I have used a single tea spoon to start a fire using damp and green wood. Depending what your need is, I might be able to help. Maybe build a small cabin, trailer portable with a generator, water catchment, antenna. Toss in a wireless system to charge your cell phone or two way radio.

We’re seeking someone with information gathering, surveillance and reconnaissance skills: we’re in need of a trained/experienced scout that can operate effectively within a forested environment; alone at times.  We have NVD & thermal imaging technology as well as suppression capabilities if need be available for your night ops.  We are located in the northern portion of the lower peninsula of Michigan in a very rural, hilly forested area.  SERE and similar training will be considered but no phonies or wannabes please: your credentials will be verified and your skills tested.  You will have to meet the minimum general requirements for membership.  Arriving with nothing but hungry mouths and the shirts on your backs is not an option.

In return you will be welcomed into a well established group of excellent people with quality skills, prepped up beyond what most groups require and an excellent retreat sight for you and your family.  We have a medical unit of doctors & nurses.  Unless you’re a millionaire you won’t find a better, safer place for your yourself and included family.  For further information hmu…

Hey everyone,

Really new to this. I’ve always been all about making sure to save things and not be wasteful, and have emergency supplies “just in case.” With the way the world is going, though, I want to do something more palpable, focused, and purposeful. I know there’s plenty of preppers in Idaho in Boise and northward. I live in Southeastern Idaho, though, so I wouldn’t be opposed to getting input, help, advice, etc. from experienced people in Utah, Montana, or Wyoming, too.

Thank you for adding me, I look forward to networking with you all.

What my plan is, is to network with individuals. Get to know each other and build a rapport and friendship.  Start conducting some training classes etc.  As of right now I plan on bugging in.  But that could change depending on other group members’ locations.  Meaning, if other group members have a better location to bug out to and are willing to allow their location to be the designated BOL area.

I’m 47, married with 3 children. We are Christian.  I spent 16 years in the Army and Michigan Army National Guard.  I worked 4 years as a correction officer and emergency response team member at a prison. Besides tactics, I worked as a Medical Specialist (medic).   We live in a rural area

I figure that group members could pool their assets to make a retreat a better location. (Some items may be prepositioned.)  What belongs to you, belongs to you.  What is mine, stays mine.  Granted there is going to be some items that are pooled from all members like the group first aid kit or items used for training.  That way if a member quits or is dismissed, there is no arguing about what belongs to you.  I think that written agreements should be implemented so there is no confusion later.

I think that one of the main priorities should be a year +/- worth of food for each member. All of this will take some time, some longer than others.  Since this is new, everything is subject to change.

I am looking for a doctor, physician assistant, registered nurse, military to form a mutual assistance group for an emergency situation.  If you are proficient at gardening, canning meat and produce you will be an asset.  If you do not necessarily have any skills but have money for supplies you will be an asset.  There is safety in numbers.  So how about you, what is your background?

Everyone must work towards the goal of one year of food in storage. Group members must chip in to purchase supplies that will be used by the group.  Group members must be willing to attend training such as firearms marksmanship, first aid, survival skills etc.  Everyone coming on board must be very dedicated, focused, self driven, be able to give their word and keep their word. Communication Security (COMSEC) is a must.  Everyone’s identity and personal information will be kept confidential.

I believe the group should make decisions together (committee). No dictatorship.  I think there should be a figurehead for daily operation decision making but answer to the group committee.

I am looking for people from the immediate Cadillac area. Preferably medically or militarily trained. All around handy man & gardening personnel also wanted.

If this interests you then send an email to materielgeneral [at] yahoo [dot] com and tell me a little about yourself and what you can contribute to the group.

Thank You

UPDATE
**********

Our next meeting date is July 15, 2pm at the meeting room at Big Boy Restaurant.

The first hour we will have a home defense class on pat down/frisk and handcuffing an intruder and if time allows some basic home defense techniques for firearms.

2nd hour we will start having first aid classes.

Next month will be a camp out and we will tryout bushcraft skills and other classes.

Looking for self reliant hard working people. The time is getting shorter to be in a good place with good people.

We think rocky mountain montana is a good place.  We are interested in meeting real people who live in the area or are contemplating moving . God helps the helpless but the rest of us have to chop wood and carry water.

Looking at this ad it is a bit light on info. I could tell you all the things we have stockpiled for the last 25 years, the skills we have learned and the continuing self reliant things we are doing. But that wouldn’t probably impress the people that have not done things like dig a shelter, can produce, get a RN degree, work in a generator and ATV shop for 30 years, build a couple of houses from scratch and are currently raising a teenager. Plus laying out too much info is bad for opsec.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at COB Cottage Company, 94006 Ginger, Coquille, OR 97423.

We will be learning how to build with COB. The word cob comes from an old English root meaning a lump or rounded mass. Cob building uses hands and feet to form lumps of earth mixed with sand and straw, a sensory and aesthetic experience similar to sculpting with clay. You will get dirty so wear appropriate clothing.

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com
