Hello everyone, so, me and my business partners/ best friends just put the down payment on 46 acres in southern Colorado, and we’re looking for a few groups of like minded people to help settle and cultivate the community.
To that end, we are recruiting founders, the mortgage (super low), duties, benefits and so forth will be split between us.
This is again, undeveloped land, well be starting from scratch, together, to build the life we dream of.
So come join us,
If your interested, or know someone who may be, email tgolfoundation at gmail, and we’ll get back to you immediately.
Let’s get back to basics,
The Gardens of LIFE Foundation
So I’ve had this desire for a long time, to assemble a group of people and together head out on a extended bug out/ survival trip. If there is anyone out there who would be interested in such a venture, PM me.
Hello everyone, me and some friends of mine are wanting to put together a group of people that would like to go in together on property. Whether its property that we buy together and put in trust, or that one of us has and we all caretake and provide for, and prep that property turning it into a community for us and our descendants (those who found the group). We’ve been looking into various properties in the southern part of Colorado (San Luis valley) and have determined it’s possible to get property fairly cheap (around 1000 an acre, sometimes less) if anyone in Colorado, or the surrounding area’s is interested in this, to join with us in this endeavor, to help purchase, prep and live there, whether permanently or partially, please PM me, we would love to hear from you.
I would like to create a group or team of people who want to prep and work together to develop a network to share information, tricks, tips and assistance when needed. I located in the Denver Metro area.
Hi, Tomgirl and I are currently in southwest Colorado. We are researching some lands to buy that are mountainous and hopefully with river frontage. Bordering BLM or national forest would be ideal. We’re in our twenties. I have an inheritance with which to buy land and set up an off-grid location. Have not decided on exactly where we want to settle as yet, but considering New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and maybe even California . Feel free to write us at richandtomgirl [at] protonmail [dot] com
We would like some input on locations most favorable.
Hey there. I’m new here ,just joined yesterday.
I live in Colorado and am interested in forming a “community” one day soon.
I am hoping to find rational people here that,like me, am fully awake and cognitively able to read the “tea leaves” of our times.
Nice meeting you all
Moving to western Colorado soon and would like to make contact with other preppers in the area. MAG relationships or find a group to join.
My name is Ruth I am 60 and have 2 adult boys we have been preppers for better than 20 years.We are Christians and know the hour is very late .in the realm of birth pains and the world we are seeing and living in i would say we are crowning.We are honest ,loyal and loving people we are also hardy .strong and no pushovers.We take care of our own and others.My boys have a great number of advanced skills and would be an asset to any group.We forge and pay our own way no freeloaders here.WE are not rich but we are not poor.
We have what we need to last for a long haul.We would like to find a group to add safety in numbers to our preps and to yours as well.If you have good land for your bug out local and you want to pick your new neighbors who are willing to pitch in and even buy an acre or two to help with cost and your investment let us know.
contact us at ruth1958 [at] protonmail [dot] com
please note for anyone seeing money signs we can not and will not be taken advantage of “promise”.
We have a great deal of practice at being part of the group, we have lived with 4 preper groups 2 groups for just over a year each, one group for two years and a long term for 6 years.
We left on good terms with each and that is no small undertaking.Their is no perfect family and no perfect group.We have been witness to some of the most interesting group dynamics.Family,marriage,groups each is a commitment day by day a decision that this is what i will work at and this is were i wish to be. We have never been kicked out or asked to leave any group. We have worked very hard with others to build their infrastructure log cabins,crops,wells,solar power even under ground storm shelters ”bunkers”
What we want
A serious and real group of for the most part like minded people who wish to learn from one and other teach one and other, train together of course with in reason for what could be very interesting and trying times ahead or what do we prep for? We wish to join an established group who want to add to their security, their workforce and their skill sets .We would prefer the Pacific Northwest area as this is our stomping grounds,But for the right group of people and right place we could be open.
Some of what i watch for and study and prep for. our Economy /debt/the fed/I.M.F those are all good right?, Natural disaster/national natural disaster,False flags,cyber attack/true or false flag,/E.M.P,/WAR/world war Nope no chance of that right?N.a.t.o,/U.N WOW this list could pretty big so that will do. And these are among the most reasonable,rational and logical in the prep world.
What we bring to the table,
2 very able body males over 10 years off grid living experience.Husbandry Goats,chickens,rabbits,horses.growing food /vegetables in many different states /environments.Rustic log cabin building,some carpentry skills, off grid tools.First aid and C.P.R as well as advanced field medic training .Disclaimer lived with army medic 5 years navy medic 1 year trained with both i am not a doctor.
Supplies/security/and other skills 4×4 pickup/work truck ,over a years food stock for a group of 4,A good stock of survival gear, top class A/R’s scoped green laser with flashlight and strobe with sidearms and a modest arsenal hunting weapons/ammo.bush craft and survival skills at instructor levels
If you are looking for people you can count on we are your guys we even come with references from other group members we have lived with long term to learn more contact us here or at our e mail bellatorcantor [at] protonmail [dot] com
Have 40 acres in southern Colorado, the land is at the base of the flat top mountain east of the Rockies. I am interested in starting a prepper group on it about 30 miles north of Trinidad. Everything will be started from scratch for the most part so anyone joining would need to build their house. I would be happy to help as we will all end up dependent on each other. I am ex military with skills in electrical and have lived here for 2 years so there is a cabin with an extra room. There is a drying room, smoker, chicken coup and rabbit hutch. I am not a believer that we own the land but the land is here for our use which makes us the caretakers of it. It is remote and hard to get to but it overlooks the valley with plenty of firewood. 20 acres is suitable for growing crops though the feeling I get from the weather changes going on that a green house would be the way to go. I am also amiable to selling interest in the land and even putting it in the interested parties name.
I only come to town about once a week so there will be a delay in answering. I am new to all this so please bear with me.
I just moved to Colorado, and I am looking for a group to help with prepping as I am new to this. I live in the Aurora area, and I am willing to meet somewhere, preferably nearby, but is not required.

Hello Ladies and Gents
I would like to thank so many people from this site for all the contacts and conversations we ,My son and I received we have been offline and off grid for a while. With time and a little patience this site has gained us a friend who we teamed up with and a group that we three are now members of and we all live together in our own places. We my son and I have been in groups for long term stays as we have said before in our other post [ Get us if you can ]… We do not know what happened but we were not able to get into our post or back on the site with our old profile. But we are back and we ask each of our friends who have contacted us to get back in touch you know who you are lol…As I was saying it is hard to wade through so many people and groups and find the real deals as most of us very well know, however after many months of looking for the right people and so many contacts even friends,, we made a choice and we could not be more happy with the real and down to earth people we have found.. For op sec reasons I will not be giving a list of we got this and we got that …
Now if you are looking for a group to bond with to become friends and maybe extended family we may be what you are looking for .. If you are real, , honest,, true to yourself and others you may fit.. we are not a religious group we have many people with many different points of view and we respect each other and each others points of view… We are open to all good people contact us by e mail if we like what we see and hear we will move to phone person to person talks and get to know each other.. we love ex mil alpha dogs and those who have a prepping and security mindset.. If you have skillsets you bring to the table and you wish for safety in likeminded numbers we may be your kind of crazy lol

I have been a prepper for over 20 years and have noticed a lot of posts seeking communication, connection or like minded people. I worked for Outward Bound for 10 years and have over 30 years of wilderness experience. I am pretty well set up but want to help others get to a more comfortable position.
I am not seeking money, donations or information about your situation or group. If you are looking for answers, advice or just someone to bounce ideas off of, you can contact me at skylar4762 [at] aol [dot] com.
Take care, time is short.
36, married with 3 daughters been prepping for 10 years, so fairly advanced. have multiple retreat options, close and far. I have groups that I’ve been apart of in other places, but I know no one in this area. if you’re up for some conversation, send me a message or email me at freedomjesse [at] gmail [dot] com
Hello. I’m a prepper from Alaska that just moved to CO. I had to come to CO to help care for family. Prepping was part of everyday life in AK and I’m feeling vulnerable here without my support group. I would like to possibly find a prepper group here to be associated with. I live in the foothills and prefer to stay away from the large city so I was hoping to find a group located in the mountains that is open to new members. Just a brief note about me: I have advanced skills on my preferred sidearm (handgun), intermediate skills on large caliber weapons, urban or outdoor warfare search/combat techniques, combat medical skills; knowledge of greenhouse growing, stress management counseling, medicinal herbs (learning local plants); good at basic construction and learning advanced tracking. Overall, I am hard working and a fast learner. I have a Christian base but can associate with other faiths that have the same core values. I have acquired/built a stable residence for a temporary location that can hold me off grid (1 year) until I can get to permanent location, which is what I’m looking for. Please send me a note if you or someone you know is looking for new members. I am very cautious of people so please be patient if my responses or wanting to meet come slower than others. Thanks for reading.
I am a former army special forces medic. Have skills in security, defense, general construction, some gardenibg and farming, small livestock, individual water purification. Designs for satellite systems, including tv, phone and internet. Basic generator designs and alternative fuel, using rain water to power consumption engines
If you would like to discuss how we can benefit each other please contact me
I am in Illinois. However thinking of relocating. Texas, Colorado, Arizona,Wyoming, Montana
Most prepper groups seem to consist of younger individuals or couples. My wife and I are in our late sixties and live in eastern Colorado but aren’t of the belief that older folks don’t have a place in a SHTF situation. We’ve been prepping for several years and are convinced that prepping takes a long-term commitment and is a lifestyle that needs to be practiced continuously. We would like to locate like-minded individuals serious about pragmatic preparation. Age is mostly irrelevant; attitude and pragmatism are essential. If you live in or near Elbert County in Colorado and might like to meet up or communicate, I would appreciate a reply. simlaprepper
Stop sitting around the house, lets get out and work! A little friendly interaction, get to know the people who are likely to be around after SHTF now, and maybe even have a few ideas rub off, or get some good training in with your gear. Practice makes perfect!
Condition yourself. Work together with a group of like minded folks doing the same thing…PREPARING so we succeed. Planning to bug-out? Have you tried your plan? Need to get home from work if SHTF? Have you tried doing that without a vehicle? We’ll go with you to test it all out.
Everyone has a plan until they get punched in the mouth. Would you rather be punched before? Or after? To know what it feels like, and see if your plan, preps, and gear will work or not, I for one would like to practice now. Practice makes perfect after all.
Get familiar with your preps now while you have the comfort of making mistakes, don’t wait until your health and safety are actually on the line before busting open that new toy you just got off Amazon.
Network and build those relationships now, that you may need in the roughest of times!
Physically active group, not into just the classroom theory of prepping, but actual practical application. Bring a DO WORK attitude and be ready for movement.
Leave the Religion, Politics, & 420 at home…don’t need to bring that with you.
Shoot me a message…

Our family (of 4 possibly 5) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with. We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring. We wish to relocate to Missouri, Arkansas, Texas, Oklahoma, N. Nebraska, but preferably somewhere out West since it is less populated (Montana, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada, North or South Dakota, Wyoming, and Utah). We are choosing not to remain in Tennessee. We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.
Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.
In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me. We currently live just outside of Chattanooga, but it is just over the mountain in our backyard, and those folks are going to be heading somewhere to try to survive….
We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. We have no roots here, and have been looking to leave for a while, but have stayed just because it’s where my kids have always gone to school. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.
Hello – any preppers in Southern Colorado/Durango area? Let me know – we are wanting to move there but want to make sure there are more like minded people there. Thanks!!
We are a small Christian group in N.E. Colorado. We would like to find like minded Christians to join us. We are totally prepared. Our mindset to prepping is “Keep It Simple”. Good location, easily defended, good water, and garden.
Hi, my group and I purchased a property in pikes national Forest in 2013. We spent the last three years gathering supplies setting up basic farming, livestock, fencing, water supplies, filtration, greenhouses, cabins, solar and much much more. We love it here.
However due to family illness we have to move. The vast majority of our group have become family and have decided to move with us.
I’m hoping to find someone here who is looking for a defensible and discreet bug out that already has a lot of work and supplies laid in. My other option is to try and sell things piecemeal and turn the property back into a publicly marketable mountain home. We’d much rather find folks looking for a prep/bug out.
If you have interest or questions please feel free to contact me at serenityrivercolorado [at] gmail [dot] com
We are a couple (both 35) with a nearly three year old son. We have been preparing and training in Northern California for years, but are no longer confident that this is a safe area to live through the increasing earth changes and what may come.
As such, we are looking to strategically relocate and join a high-trust, thoroughly self-sufficient community that includes other families.
We respect operational security, but do require a sufficiently open dialog that we can develop the requisite trust to move forward. While this is necessarily a process, it’s also an urgent one.
Some of our interests and areas of expertise include:
Cooking, fermentation, pickling
Licensed amateur radio operator
Electronics & repair; Software/Internet
Music: Piano, Guitar, Harp; Theory, Education
Parenting / teaching
Philosophy & Counseling
Health & Fitness
Nutrition & anti-cancer diet
Both experienced entrepreneurs, which means applying infinite creativity in solving endless problems and working with others to build something real.
There is clearly much more. I am confident we can make a meaningful contribution to any community, particularly given that we share a goal of securing a future for our families. Eager to discuss how we can work together.
If you are such a group, or know of any groups looking for families, please reach out: christian ѳ props ˑ org
All the best, and God bless.
UPDATE Nov 1, 2016: NEW RECRUITING NOW CLOSED. If we open again for new members, I’ll post a new thread. Until then, please consider this thread closed. Thanks.
Dedicated, organized, group looking to add members. We’re in Castle Rock, CO and currently have 5 full members with 6 or 8 more currently under consideration. We have some serious medical expertise, a couple firearms professionals, and various other skills currently, but need more of everything – especially military (combat!) experience.
My wife and I have been preppers for more than a decade. We’re in our late 30s/early 40s and trying to get back into shape. Most of us are Christian, but you’re free to practice religion however you choose. What’s not negotiable, however, is trust – we have to get to know you and feel comfortable with you before a formal invitation will be extended.
We don’t ask for you to contribute any supplies to the group, but we do have personal supply minimums for you and your family so that we know you won’t drain current group supplies. Donations are appreciated so that our team leaders can enhance our current capabilities, but not required.
If you’re considering voting for Hillary or Bernie, keep scrolling. You’re looking at the wrong group.
We’d love to find a place to bug-out to, but pending that, we’re gathering in a few proximate homes and making a go of it together with as low of a profile as we can. If we outgrow our current location, we have other options we’ll pursue should it come to that.
We’re not anti-government, but we feel that it’s our responsibility to take care of each other, not the government’s responsibility to take care of us. We’re not a militia, but we do require our members each own a rifle and be willing to learn to shoot with us.
If you become a full member, expect monthly full-group meetings and frequent additional team meetings, depending on which teams you’re interested in (aligned with skills and interests). Our goal is 20 dedicated adults, but 30 or even more is possible with the right people – and that gives us far more long-term survival options. Zero OPSEC or security concerns with any of our members or you’re out. No hard feelings, but we won’t compromise on that.
We want team leaders and anyone willing to contribute. We need fresh ideas. If you’re along for the ride, or “oh well Steve is good at that, so I’ll let Steve take care of that stuff,” this isn’t the group for you. We’re “all in” and we expect the same from you.
We’re a group of moral, honest people looking to join together to weather hard times. We’re committed to each other and to making each other stronger. We’re organized and we’re motivated. We have each other’s backs. We take care of each other and we’re committed to keeping it that way.
In dark times, we want to be a light; we strive to help our community and help those less fortunate. We aim to be a beacon of hope and to get our community back on its feet. But we can’t do that if we’re stuck focusing all our time and energy on Maslow’s Physiological needs (the bottom row on the pyramid).
We will maintain our honor and our moral fortitude so that we can be an example to those around us. Without honesty, all is already lost. “With firm reliance on the protection of Divine Providence, we mutually pledge to each other our Lives, our Fortunes, and our sacred Honor.”
PM and we’ll go grab coffee and chat. We need to trust each other or this doesn’t work. Thanks, and God Bless all of you.
