WARNING!

I was doing prepper work with someone originally in the Titusville area of FL with a man who goes by  “Bobby Smith.”   When, I left to get my RV repaired, he stole about $6,000 of my belongs (food, tools, supplies) and left the area.

When I first contacted him to tell him I need to come by and pick up some of my belongs, he told me he had moved and I needed to pay him for storage for my things.  I agreed.   After I agreed, he said someone else who was with us took my belongings.   When I asked him, if the OP had stolen why he wanted storage, he said he didn’t have room, so he threw everything out.   Right!

It turns out that Bobby has a criminal record.   Please be on the look out.   Bobby is about 45 – 50 years old.  He weighs maybe 180 – 210lbs, 5’7″ and usually has very short hair.   He is a handy man of sorts and does some basic RV repair work.

I did file a police report.  They have receipts.  However, the investigator says they have not been able to locate him and while he is violating parole, they seem to be doing very little to pursue this.  I was told it would be best if I hire a PI/Attorney as they have limited staff to follow up on this kind of matter.

Please watch yourself.  Bobby is not to be trusted.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, February 2, 2019 at the Curry Public Library, 94341 3rd St, Gold Beach, OR 97444.

The main topic is “Preparedness Check Up”. We will start the year by evaluating just how prepared we are for disaster. Let’s discover where we are lacking so we can focus on being better prepared this year.

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.

I live right on the border of Mongomery and Bucks County. I am surrounded by 1.4 million people!! When things get bad people get ugly and in this case more does not mean merrier. Don’t get me wrong I like my neighbors, for instance when a blizzard knocked out the towns power for 3 days, I was explaining to my neighbor that I was concerned about my pipes freezing, he was nice enough to reply “the next time that happens you can borrow my (electric)radiator”. I just started prepping for tomorrow. I’m not sure how deep I will go with this but when something does happen I want to be able to take care of my family and not be a burden on the limited resources that will be needed to take care of someone like my neighbor.

I’m just reaching out to see who is in my area that has the same concerns as me, feel free to leave a comment and say hello.

Hello,

My name is Faith, I am a 20-year-old prepper. I’ve been learning and practicing prepping since I was twelve years old. Recently I have developed a master plan for SHTF scenarios, and I’d like to create an established group of preppers, young or old, new or experienced; to help me build that community.  Currently, I live in Barren County, Kentucky, however, I want the community to go beyond physical location.

I’ll attach a copy of my plan files below.

My plan for this network goes like this: This forum thread is the online base camp for us to communicate. Currently, it is just me, but those that wish to form an official network.  We will swap contact information, a name you wish to be called and a general location (nothing too specific, just to get a basic idea as to where we all are.)

From there we’d discuss our knowledge of prepping and any other questions, then when enough people are a part of this network, choose a place for a meet up to get to know each other and establish not only a network but also a friendship, with a common goal of preparedness and survival.

Just as a precaution I’ll make something clear up front: I am a tolerant, open minded person. I respect all ways of life and those who wish to join will not be discriminated on for any reason, you will be judged by your words and actions alone. I will not accept bigoted, racist, sexist, or any form of prejudice. All opinions and expressions are welcomed to be voiced but please do so in a respectable manner. It is encouraged to site and support all statements for show education on the topic of discussion. Bottom line, regardless of skin color, culture, religion, gender, sexuality or any other label we are all here to prepare and share knowledge of survival, and life doesn’t care who or what you are.

With that our of the way:

Those who wish to join the network can post a reply to this post with a method of contact and I will respond within three days. Questions or comments can be discussed here as well.

Note: not all my files will be shown, for security reasons, but you can get an idea of my plans.

Best Wishes,

Faith S.

Hi All, my name is Riccardo and I am an italian guy permanently relocating to NH next March for work ( will rent a home in Salem NH the first year while searching a suitable property to build a home somewhere in southern NH in 2020).

I am 42yo from Rome where I started prepping 2 years ago. Due to the mediterranean climate of Rome I learned a lot about growing vegetables and fruit and canning them to preserve the products , I work in a renewable energies company so I know a thing or two about them and I have been volunteer in Italian Red Cross for several years so I am quite skilled in first aid. Guns enthusiast , I try to train with them as much as possible (once a week more or less) both with handguns, Ar15 and long range shooting with my M1a up to 500m. For the rest I consider myself a handyman , that can do a lot of things (actually I did most of the works of plumbing , electricity and so on in the house I live now in Italy).

So now I have to leave everything behind and start a brand new life in USA, but I want to resume as soon as possible my preparedeness and I would like to start to connect with like-minded people in the surroundings. If anyone is interested my mail is : [email protected]
