Hi everyone.  I’m hismrsfinnegan and I’m new to the group. I used to be better prepared for emergencies but last year I became very I’ll and almost died and some family members decided to go through my preps and help themselves.

So, here I sit with some food, a little bit of water, some emergency supplies left and an empty 72hour kit.  I need to start over.

I’m also a widow living on a limited income with few friends and family hundreds of miles away.

I want to rebuild my preps as quickly as I can but I feel alone in this task.  There may be some funds next year that can help with food and some supplies but I feel like I need to start NOW.

I am planning on water and working on food storage, tp, basics to start.  My main goal is my 72hour kit.  Warm clothes, will socks, etc…

It’s been many years since I started my prepping and to get home after months in the hospital to find things missing is disheartening, but I can’t give up.  I need to do SOMETHING.

Anyone with any advice, it would be greatly welcomed.  My first goal is to make sure none of my neighbors know of my prepping and only 2 family members can be trusted.   (Not even my kids at tjis point). They live 200 miles away and we are working on fixing up my home in case they can get here when SHTF.

Thanks for letting me join the grouo.  I’m sure I’ll have many questions but I want to share as well.

We have 100 acres in Cocke County TN. We are creating a small self sufficient community. We are looking for 6 more families to join us and build permanent homes, each on their own 5 to 15 acre parcel within this 100 acre community. We will also host limited numbers of shelters for part-time and emergency only members. To put it bluntly, we need money and labor to build infrastructure. We do not have a set price or single plan. If we feel you will be a good fit in our community, we will work out a plan that all can agree on.

We already have occupied homes and outbuildings. We have construction equipment. We have workshop space and tools. We have power and water.

We do not have empty homes ready for move-in. We do not have the money to finance home building. We can provide site preparation including excavation and septic installs. We can help with designing and building, just not financing.

We are working on establishing income producing businesses to provide jobs for community members.

We are not particularly religious, and we have no bias against anyone.

We are not militaristic, but we will defend our community. We consider concealment to be the first line of defense, deterrence the second, and overwhelming force the last. We won’t demand anything, but we can help with training and equipment if you want or need it.

We believe in the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution. We aren’t interested in dictatorships, theocracies, socialism, communism, etc.

We believe we can produce everything needed in a permanently sustainable way by carefully balanced group members and activities.

We don’t want to do anything illegal.

Hi, I am pretty new to prepping. With the recent threats from the North Korea, I have started a small group. We have started putting away supplies, we have enough right now to feed 5 people for 6 months. We do not have a bunker, but we do have a secret place to go if SHTF. My husband is a mechanic and can fix and weld anything. He also is a handy man, he can build a house from the ground up. I have my bachelors in computer science, a lot of good that will do me if anything does happen but I also have other skills. I am a skilled fighter, I can sew, farm, cook anything from anything. Advanced problem solving skills and I could lead a group effectively. I can think fast and provide solutions that work to keep people alive. I have back up plans to my back up plans. Literally, printed out.

Looking for honest, hardworking people. People that will work together under extreme stress and not turn on each other. People that are loyal, who look to work forward, not backward.  I would like to start a new group so that we may learn and grow/prepare together. Interested, email me @aprillynn32 [at] live [dot] com

Volusia County, Florida

The Volusia County Prepping Group has been meeting monthly since 2011. We’re a preparedness education group – NOT a “survival group” or “mutual assistance group” or militia or anything like that. If you’re interested in learning and meeting like-minded folks, please check out our web site and join us at a meeting. There are no dues – we pass the jar for donations to rent the building for our meetings. If nothing else, you’ll probably find some good information on our web site.

Welcome to the Volusia County Prepping

Hello everyone, I am a 28-year-old female living in Pennsylvania looking for a group to join. Someone with like-minded people that don’t put people down but build each other up. We are in this to thrive not be divided by greed and or jealousy.

There is a lot for me to learn I am still new but I am taking up the trade of tanning and butchering  I also know how to sew so I’m going to be working on making products from the tandem skins.

If anyone has a group that is willing to except another person and help them learn or you wish to start a group or community feel free to emailed me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com

Hello everyone my name is Dida

I am a newly surfaced proper I have always known the world was going to go to shit and have always wanted to prepare for it but I never knew prepping was such a thing until I discovered it on TV and then online. Right now I am doing it by myself and slowly because my family doesn’t want anything to do with it they feel it is childish and a waste of money and/or time.

So what I am looking for is I would like to find like-minded people to mentor me and guide me in this rough world. Eventually I would like to create a community in which we all support each other and thrive and survive in the world to come.

My skills are as followed

-I can fish and build a tent and fire from scratch

– I am good at first aid hopefully learning how to do sutures soon

– becoming better at identifying plants and using them medically.

I was in a prepper group a while ago but I had left due to the fact that a lot of the people there we’re putting others down for the lack of knowledge and kind of making them feel stupid. As well as making fun of me because of an illness I have which is cancer so that set me off the deep end and I left without questions asked. I want to find someone or people that don’t judge others for illnesses they have how they look or what they do or don’t know we are all in this together when shit hits the fan and we only to survive and learn together so that’s the kind of people I wish to be around

If you think you can help me in any way feel free to email me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com hope to talk to you soon

 

Admin Edit: Email the advice, or leave a contact (email as a contact was given above). To share specific tips and suggestions, please use the associated prepper forum, not the main site. Thanks!

I live in the OKC metro area and have been trying for years to connect with other preppers. My husband and I are particularly interested in formalizing our group and networking with other groups. A friend told me about this site. We are prep skill instructors for our new business, Stone Haven LLC. We also just published a book on starting and maintaining a prep group, which we have dubbed a Survival Alliance – available on Amazon. It’s called Survival Alliances and we are on FB under the same name. We are committed to helping folks whether they are just getting started or ready to start an alliance. We truly believe these groups will be places of safety for those who are properly prepared. Message me here or on FB if I can help.
