Hi Everyone, I have an underground welded steel bomb shelter that has flooded and is in need of repairs. Does anyone know of an individual or company in the Northern Virginia area qualified to take on repairs to a flooded shelter? Thanks in advance for your help!
We’ve recruited on here in the past and met some great people but it hasn’t worked out for a variety of reasons.
I’m interested in two things:
- Meeting representatives of other functional groups around Colorado. I’d love to setup some semi-regular coffee talks to compare notes and get to know each other. Regardless of what part of the state you’re in, there’s a good chance I could refer people to you, but I have to first know what kind of people you’re looking for. A basic radio network would be useful as well. Coffee is good, networking is almost as good.
- Meeting people interested in joining our group specifically – one that actually works together (shooting, ham radio, hiking…). If you want to learn more about becoming a member of our group, we require a willingness to learn basic security techniques with us, our way (or even better, if you have a lot of experience with this, to TEACH us), basic security equipment, 6 months of food storage, and various other odds-and-ins as we’ve laid them out. Email me at johnhartnj at outlook dot com for more info. If you feel like you have no skills whatsoever, which I’m sure isn’t true, but you can afford your own gear and you honestly want to learn and have fun, we’ll take care of you. We do have some pistol/rifle/physical fitness qualification standards and we’re here to help you pass them… but you also have to want it. The standards aren’t difficult unless you have no experience at all or have extreme physical limitations.
I’m not anti-government, we aren’t a militia, and I have little interest in yet another meeting about bug-out bags. But we do need to take this seriously. We meet regularly and our on-boarding process is fairly lengthy. Our location is south of the greater Denver metro area, off the beaten path; the details are private but we offer some/many advantages to staying in the city. We aren’t a commune, we aren’t selling chunks of our land, and your stuff will forever be your stuff.
My wife tells me that trying to recruit good people from the internet is futile and maybe she’s right. But here I am. You have to want to assimilate into the clan and that means building frith and kinship; without that, there is no group. Best of luck to you all, and I sincerely hope all of you can find a good group to join or have success starting your own. And I hope none of us ever needs to actually use anything relevant to any of this.
Looking to start group.
We have been here 15 years and really like where we are. Headwaters of the Missouri, lakes and forest. Interested in chatting with others who read this type of material. We are active in the outdoors and preparing. We have knowledge and resources and know the lay of the land and the people around us. Since it is hard to contact one another try my email at montanabill, then the numerals, 08 at gmail.com.

Just checking out site. Im ex military and am interested in meeting a group in minnesota.
Existing Site in SouthEastern Oklahoma seeking individual, couple or very small group
What I’m all about:
I’m a male in my mid-40’s living off-grid in much the same fashion I would if TSHTF. If the end of the world occurred tomorrow, I wouldn’t know about it until I realized planes weren’t flying overhead anymore. I’ve been doing this in earnest now for about a decade, though my scheming and plotting started in the late 90’s.
I don’t really anticipate a calamity that can be marked and commemorated on some future calendar, instead I feel the continued decay of ethics, morality and dependencies/ entitlements have already put us square in the definition of living post-apocalypse. And all it seems likely to do from here is continue to degrade. I am not a ‘gun nut’ praying for something terrible to happen so I can live out my fantasies based on being ‘done wrong’ by the world. Unfortunately, too many of our ranks seem to lean that direction.
My life is without dependency on the outside world, economy, medical care, etc… I train pack/ draft animals, raise food(though not as much or as well as I could), devise methods to contend with my needs based on what’s onhand, etc…
I’m on a rather small piece of property(6 acres) adjacent to a river, lots of ‘feral’ land and few neighbors. It’s very rural, off the beaten track, but not so far from ‘town’ or resources to have to worry about having enough gas to go get gas. That said… I might make a trip to town 6 times a year.
It’s the frontier out here… riff-raff, cowboys and indians, other assorted ‘wild’ inhabitants… the weather is equally wild and so are the innumerable quantities of wildlife that we share the region with. I wouldn’t trade this spot for the world… I was very lucky to have found it and appreciated it’s potential so many years ago.
What I’m looking for:
I took all this on by myself and understand how difficult it is to even conceive of it as an individual. Ideally, I’d like to find a person or couple or even a very small group that was looking for an optimal location as I was when I located this one(I am not from here, I sought it out based on a long list of criteria). Learn what it’s all about and what you’re made of, and put yourself or yourselves in a secure position come what may. Making space for a camper, yurt or other temporary accommodations, if needed, would not be a huge ordeal.
My personal experience has lent me the opinion that large groups are too inherently flawed… and too prone to failure- Too many heads to bang together and it always seems money is the root of the greatest number of issues.
I’m not concerned about ‘your skill set’ or what you might bring to the table. In my opinion, most of us under-estimate some and over-estimate even more of our own abilities, needs, etc… without having them put to the test. Having ‘mad canning skillz’ while Walmart’s still open is one thing. Figuring out how to preserve food without an infinite supply of lids and rings is entirely another.
It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how much ‘stuff’ you’ve acquired. Everything you ‘need’ is in your head and heart. That said- you would need to be able to provide for yourself or do what’s necessary(like working, hah) at least long enough to get your head around things.
I’m not interested in ‘making money’ off anyone. It would be essential that you help around here, and of course you would be helped as well. But I can’t ‘take care’ of anyone. You’ll have to be resolved to take care of yourself or yourselves.
Criminal records, drug use(including pot) and alcoholism cannot be tolerated- occasional drinking doesn’t bother me, neither does smoking as long as you can provide your own tobacco or learn to grow it.
If you’re interested(and still reading)… feel free to contact me at:
sustainabill at gee male dart calm
or contact me here.
Let’s set up some dialogue and see if we can find a mutually beneficial situation.
Good luck out there.
