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. ​

our website– which i continue to check periodically.

Hello, Just wanted to pass along to folks a quick note about the Oregon Training Group.  I took the plunge and joined the website and started to attend FTX (field training’s) last summer, after three FTX’s I was voted in by the membership.

Trainings occur every third Saturday of the month, usually in the Linn county area as it seems to be centrally located;. while their are members from across the state, most of the active members are spread around the Willamette valley.  There are 3 elected positions and a well thought constitution. The group has been around for more than 3 years now.  There are no dues or specific equipment requirements. Most training’s last 4-6 hours although i have been on 2 overnighters. I would encourage folks with an interest to stop by and join the site and look over the forum section to get a feel for the group. If you have specific questions feel free to PM me here or there.


UPDATE February 14, 2016

Update, Oregon Training Group is still around after almost another 2 years. I am now Chairman for the group. We continue to offer classes and opportunities to network with other like minded folks primarily in the Willamette Valley.
I want to state unequivocally though that we are not a militia, folks occasionally find us and we are happy to recommend groups that we know are active, it isn’t this group though.
We have our schedule for the rest of the year set up, i am also offering bonus classes when i can, usually in conjunction with the Salem Area Preparedness Group’s activities another group with which i remain active.
Aside from class materials there is no charge for classes. nor do we collect dues, have equipment requirements etc. Folks can find out more at

Thanks for your interest and stay safe-Post18guy
