Hi

i am looking for like minded (beginner) peppers to meet up, exchange ideas, share resources, share tips and tricks. I am currently located in Orange County CA

I see a lot of people doing the right thing, prepping smartly and carefully.

What i don’t see is people joining forces. I see different strengths in different cities, one person has army training, another has water source, Another has unlimited food resources etc….Combining brain cells and resources would mean you/we would have an abundance of ALL resources and a 24/7 support group in a helpful giving community which all give you peace of mind. If anyone is looking for the same, write me a PM.

Willing to relocate

Thanks for reading this post.

Hello,

My name is Kurt and I’m a Master Electrician with a small Electrical Contracting company in SW Michigan. I’m interested in finding, and joining, a prepper/homesteading community. I currently live in a somewhat large city (Kalamazoo, MI) and I’m not in the “good part” of the city. So when I hear advice like “come out of her my people” it really hits home.

As I mentioned, I’ve been prepping food for a while now (going on two years). However, I also have LOTS of tools and equipment from all my years in the construction business. I have several cordless drill/drivers, impact drivers, hammer drills, sawzalls, circular saws, and flashlights. In corded tools I have all of those mentioned in the cordless style (except flashlights) plus a couple of grinders, an oscillating tool, saw/sander, a belt sander, two palm sanders, two shop vacs, a router, several heat guns, and several other things as I’m sure I’m forgetting some tools. I also have all kinds of hand tools, socket sets, pipe wrenches, hammers, sledge hammers, axess, an electric chainsaw and a gas powered one, two kerosene heaters, a propane “bullet” heater, fish tapes, fish chains, fish sticks, and fishing poles (tackle too). You get the point…I have just about everything I could possibly need in the way of tools. That includes several ladders of all types and sizes, and everything you can think of in terms of gardening/lawn working tools; shovels, rakes, hoes, etc. Also hoses, sprinklers, fertilizers, clamps, connectors, adapters, valves, etc, etc. I have a plethora of tools and equipment, and I would be bringing it all…eventually. I’m sure it will take several trips over some time to complete this relocation.

My current target location is SW Arkansas in the Arkansas Ozarks. It’s in a geologically stable region of the United States. It’s in the Ozark Mountains, so it has the necessary elevation I was looking for in terms of flooding and defensive positions. There’s a very abundant supply of clean drinking water in the form of springs, rivers, and lakes. And the forested areas have plenty of wildlife, so fish and game are available. And there are not any big cities anywhere close to the area I was considering, so less chance of the desperate, lawless, hungry hoards showing up at your door. The winters are mild, especially compared to my home in Michigan, and that was definitely a consideration when I was figuring out “bug out locations” to move to.

With all that said, I’m still very open to suggestions, and  by no means have I made up my mind that the Ozarks are the only place to consider relocating to. However, wherever else I consider moving to will have to meet most, if not all, of the above considerations to qualify as a place I would be interested in landing.

So do you have suggestions? Do you have a place that’s looking for top-notch potential members with a lot to offer the community? I would love to set up a time to come for a visit to look at potential communities, and to have you check me out as well.

Please contact me via email or directly by text/call at (269) 312-0331.

Thank you,

Kurt

I am looking to make contact with a group of preppers and individuals to potentially work together before and after an event in order to help take care of our families. Doing this alone is ineffective and I would like to meet some people and if nothing else, learn new tips, tricks and skills.

Hi everyone, I’m new to the site and in search of a group in Luzerne County Pennsylvania.

I’m currently looking for a new homestead, Im expanding my preps and looking for like minded people to learn from.

I bring 22 years of military background, carpentry skills, medical training, process food storage, Bush craft and other skill sets. Mind you I’m opened minded and need to learn a lot more.

Perhaps someone out there can help me. Looking forward to meeting you.

This is my first post ever on one of these forums:

I can’t help but notice on these Prepper sites how many people who are attempting in forming groups or, dreaming of forming a group. We wish you success. We encourage you to take action now.

We are now at the tail end of our Prepper plans, its been a long road and a good deal of expense.

The past 15 years has been dedicated in developing our 120 acre ranch to be prepared for the worst and, It has not been an easy process. Its taking us far more time than I would have ever imagined to put this together well enough to insure the safety of our group. With over 1.8 million invested I can say that we are almost ready for anything….but not completely.

We have 16 bedrooms on site and have just about everything we need. from airplanes, drones, wells, 4 acres of organics, green houses, aqua culture, full-time organic farmers etc. to mention just a few. If I were to list out where we are on our project it takes 42 pages…..

I’ve listed where we are and where we are not – All of the information is in our membership proposal.

We have eight family slots left to complete our group. This is the first time we have looked outside for members and additional financing so I am not sure if what kind of interest level this post will generate. But here goes…..

Posting here was not in our plans- Its simply more attention than we wanted. We thought we could finish up this project on our own by now. With global issues getting more strange and uncertain everyday we are now looking for outside help to put this project to bed ASAP.

With this post, we are just starting to seek a few qualified members or families that are willing to invest. we really do not require your personal time as just about everything on the ranch is complete. What we require is money for the final items. (Family slot is: four persons to a family as we refer to a family membership)

We are also pet friendly as we have heaps of farm animals

With just eight slots left, we seek interested people with the ability to invest in our project. If, you are simply curious to how much we seek then you are most likely not our candidate. We seek eight families with the resources who are prepared to commit. Our family buy in plan is low cost- It is simply the cost for us to finish up and, not an attempt to recoup our investment.

If you believe that our group may be a place where you would fit in and find safe place to take your family we encourage you to contact us.

This is an opportunity to make a small investment and simply show up when all gos bad- everything is here and your bug out is stocked. This is not a pie in the sky group forming, its a project nearly complete.

I hope that everyone on this site finds what they are seeking. And to those who live in the city, that you  have made appropriate plans for your future safety.

Finally, anyone that can suggest to us additional places where we could post this request to reach our additional members – It would be appreciated- Thank you.

***************UPDATE December 25, 2018************

Still moving forward, adding a brewery and winery to the project. Ive still yet to find like minded people. All of my friends of course continue to tell me that my place is where they will come. But I tell them no- Either help me with the project, invest anything- Time, Resources etc but do not just show up because you do not have a place to go.

If you are serious about wanting a place that you can go to if things get bad then be serious enough to invest in at the very least your own food.

Hiring two full time gardners again this spring for the greenhouse and the garden

Added a few wood burners, bio char operation and a lot more since my last post

Hello,

I am a prepper from just southeast of Detroit.

A little about myself:                                                                                                               I am a married man in my 40s with no children who is a trained and very experienced mechanic I have professionally worked on everything from small engines to aircraft with the exception of trains. I have been prepping for the better part of 12 years now I am well versed in a variety of skills and have stock-piled a great deal of food, water, and supplies. I am well versed in firearms use, training, reloading, and simple gunsmithing.

What I am looking for:                                                                                                            I am looking for a small group of people who believe in being prepared for whatever life may throw our way but who also want to lead as normal a life as is possible. Anyone interested should be a capable person who has a good amount of supplies laid in already I am not looking for any particular skill sets at this moment but neither am I looking to train someone from the ground up. I am looking for local people only who are willing to meet up on a regular basis to be determined.

If you are interested then please contact me through the comments section let me know briefly your age range, prepping experience, and the general area you live in. If we look to be compatible then I will give you an E-Mail address and we can discuss things in detail.

 

Thank you for your interest.

Just an update for the Oregon page;

A little about us;

The purpose of OTG is to develop the skills, mindset, and tactics required to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities is an emergency situation.

We also try to take the opportunity to make the most out of our time together when we are training, attending classes, and meetings as opportunities to build upon other skills; skills like first aid, communications, bush craft and camp cooking

What’s involved to join? In a word participation. Aside from the cost of your travel to and from event and whatever equipment you decide to buy we have no dues, or class fees. There are no minimum equipment requirements. if there is a cost associated with an event like a camp site fee it will be noted well ahead of time. Loaner equipment is often available. Unless noted OTG is a family friendly environment. Kids are welcome. Classes occur at least once a month, usually on or around the 3rd Saturday, and most often take place in Linn. Marion, Polk, Benton and Lane Counties, classes usually last from 2-6 hours depending on content. As often as possible we do overnight camping trips usually locally.

What we are; a small diverse group of folks sharing and developing critical survival and preparedness skills in a supported team environment.
We are not a militia or political group. We will not condone, encourage or support illegal activity. This includes, but is not limited to a “call to arms”, treasonous activity or overthrow of our elected officials by force of arms. Racism in any form will not be tolerated. Nor are we a forum for political discussions. ​

I have a lot of equipment and firearms and am willing to provide security and training to the right people. I am highly intelligent and have seen pretty much everything as far as planet earth. to try and pull something shady on my po-dink ass would be very stupid. i’m a very honest person and am very sincere in what I post on this website. i’m weird in that I detest vehicles and phones. I don’t like the internet much but have to use it to get shit accomplished! in my opinion the pony express should still be running and everybody should be wearing six-shooters, and there should be frontier justice!!! hit me up if you want to chew the fat type thing.
