I have been on this site a while. I see a lot of potential scams and even more hair-brained ideas, by people who probably know less than you do. Bull shit can get you in a real bad spot. I hear of people taking others in if they”meet Criteria”, meaning you bring in resources, whether it money or material or even your time, and when it hits they can just lock you out. That’s is a serious issue.

Invest your time on seeking a few sites off the path…. Meaning it is a idea to think a fortified home or farm will withstand it if things turn south. People get hungry, and people with like minded ideas.. being hungry… will team up with others to come take what you have… the mobs will scavenge their area and travel further and down the remote roads in hopes of finding a score. You may beat them back but assuredly they will be back in greater numbers and better equipped.

The best thing you can do is stay flexible, learn to tap trees for water or purify a mud hole into clean drinking water. Alternatively learn to follow a stream to it’s source to get to a safer quality of drinking water. Not having water is your number one problem. Lot of ways to make shelters, and with the region warming up noticeable you have more warm weather than not, which of course is a dual sided sword..

Large groups will inevitable fail, inwards fighting and different views, especially religious people vs non religious… get someone thinking the end has come and they may try to hasten your exit. these little things are what people tend to overlook.

Anyone can hunt, learn to snare and fish… Once someone hears a gunshot the hungry hunter is going to come investigate and maybe get your kill. Snares are silent and draw less attention, and done right you can camouflage them well.  Fishing in sheltered areas limit’s the visibility of people seeing you. Little things.. little things. spend all day fishing to be robbed of your family’s meal would be disappointing. But the idea of my family starving and your family starving, people tend to rationalize their actions by thinking you already have some food stocked or you can just catch more.

Learning new skills now with little test projects.. They can really pay off. Did you know less that a twentieth of a percent of the population knows the skills to actually get a decent crop of tobacco to grow? even less know how to dry it correctly so that it is of a decent grade. So for you smokers you are outta luck, but if you learn the skill now you can have tobacco and it will be a great trade item.

Trade partners… Always meet somewhere away, never come alone, and be sure to never be followed home. Basic rules… If you can’t hold on to something you will not don’t need it. This sounds paranoid I agree, but think about not having nothing.. In 6 months 90% of the population would be dead, and not just from hunger.. Disease, disposing of waste properly and not leaving it around will lessen the chances of diseases and infections..

So when you look into a group ask about some of these questions, and Remember a good group needs you as much as you need them. Learn some skills, beekeeping  for honey and wax, hopefully I don’t have to explain why those two are very important, husbandry, gardening, fletching, how to sharpen a knife correctly..

I am setting up a very small group, have two others as of now. Sadly the rule of two does not work well with odd numbers, and we thinking 6 is a perfectly rounded number. 2 for home/ 2 for gathering/ and 2 for the alternating task. the skills we have are pretty well rounded, and some task will be even better with more people having them. We are a mobile group, like the Indians, and want to find people who see the benefit in this. being tied down to a single place makes you vulnerable no matter how tough you think you are or how clever you think you are.

So any like minded people should think about this bit of info and if you see the validations to these issues you should hit me up and we can open a line of communication. Tell us about you and we will do the same…

I have read a lot of people posting here as off the grid and such, but if you own land and are basing your group from there you are not off the grid. Off the grid means having the skills to pack up and go where no one knows where you are. no paper trail from land tax, land purchasing, etc.

Being able to move around quickly and efficiently is a hard skill to learn. Quickly building a shelter for the conditions you are dealing with is more work than most people think. I am ex military, trained in avoiding people. I think people who prepare their prep and store it at their home are none to bright. Martial Law gets declared and you not allowed to drive you are totally bollocked cause you cant tote it around. Looking for a few people who understand this. I have scouted several locations throughout the spring and summer. finding sites where you can get access to clean water is getting more difficult. anyways if anyone has any similar ideas hit me up

Me and my party have been considering a move northward. Washington seems very appealing to us, with the low population rates over most the states. Tons of virgin forest, great game in area, salmon.. A good place to go off-grid before the crap goes down. Looking to talk a little bit about the lands there, help us decide if it is the place for us. solely basic info.

Currently I am forming a group, taking one year to set it in motion. We have been scoping a place, plenty of fuels and resources and very few people. We are up to three members, but can realistically do up to eight. So any serious Inquires can be made, but we looking for those who fit our group. No power hungry know it all types. We will do larger projects by vote and order of importance. We know we are not planning a holiday or a outing. I am up for trading ideas and thought’s.

As a prepper I see a lot of people wanting to stay in a particular area, which is their right. Obviously they are not really willing to adjust or adapt. People wanting to stay in a area are dangerous, mainly when things hit the fan, all the sudden that person will generally try to bring 20 famioy/friends in a group not made to support that many.

Sounds harsh but it is true. By cutting ties, and only by cutting ties will a group survive. I myself am looking to go to a complete different state, so as to not be bound by my ties here. In the end I realize I cannot be responsible for everyone. I can warn them about things I can look around and see what is coming. Am I expected to take those who ignored my warnings and share my safe Harbour.

Remember you can’t be nice if you really want to survive, you must contribute as a group and suceed, or fail. We all know the price for failure.

Hello, I just moved back to Arkansas. I am looking for a small group, minus any maniacal zealots who wants to be king personalities discluded.

I as anyone who has put much real thought have my own set of skills, as well as ideas. The reason I want a small groyo vs. a larger established group is not only security, but to avoid a obvious paper trail.

I made this wrap around email to avoid it being tracked back to me. Since I have in depth studied gov tactics, I am obviously careful.

I see a lot of the same post on different states, and suggest anything you want kept secret not to post. I see a lot of people posting about big farms, a lot of info. Trouble with big operations they are easy to track.

If anyone seriously interested in poofing when it goes down, I am free to talk. I am happy to share my ideas and may even give you insights on the overlooked. I am in Nwa, and probably going to set up a group. This way I can screen and avoid the obvious mistakes most tend to make..
