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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

Like the title says

I am reaching out to any like minded Preppers or Prepper Families in or around East Tennessee.

I am willing to email ideas back and forth to run scenarios by each other. Or meet you in a public place for a cold drink and just shoot the breeze for awhile and bounce ideas off of each other to try to keep you from making mistakes i may have already made or so you can help me to keep from making mistakes you may have already made and learned from. Cause it helps to learn from other peoples mistakes that cost time and money.

Here’s a little about me. I am located in the mountains of East Tennessee 30 minutes from North Carolina and Virginia. We live on a small acreage farm. Where we raise Chickens, Rabbits, Meat Goats and an occasional Hog. My wife is wanting to become a better gardener. My daughter is wanting to work on raising milk goats. We have trail horses. We work hard to prepare for bad situations and emergencies because I am sure trouble is coming and it is going to be bad.

I am an Eagle Scout and Ex-Army Infantry. Came home and served locally in the Tennessee Defense Force. I am a Community Service Minded individual but i won’t let my family be a victim. I am a licensed Tennessee Handgun Permit Instructor. A certified CERT “Community Emergency Response Team”Instructor. I used to be a decent mechanic before they computerized everything. I am a certified Glock Armorer. I am working to learn how to reload. I was certified in CPR and as a First Responder in Tennessee. Working to obtain my Ham License.

Feel free to contact me and we will see where it goes from there.

Take care, Keep your powder dry and Watch your Six.

Are you or any of your friends interested in learning about radio communications? Do you want to stay in touch with your family and friends during an emergency? Perhaps you would like to have the ability to communicate world-wide during a disaster….

If so then why not let us teach you the skills and knowledge you will need in order to become a fully qualified ham radio operator? Maybe you just want to get a pair of handheld walkie talkies for family use, we can help you with that too.  Our goal is to establish a network of radio operators worldwide who can pass information/news/advice to each other during any disaster, and are willing to provide full free training to anyone who is interested.

You can find us on our facebook page or by private messaging us on the site here.

Kind regards, Noah

Hello,

I am currently in the SE part of the US and I am moving to the SW. I have been working on getting my wife to understand the importance of preparing for various possible (and probable) disasters which she doesn’t want anything to do with. It puts me in a difficult spot knowing when the time comes I will have to make a decision I don’t want to make. With that said, I know what is in my heart and upbringing which is why I joined this forum. I am not a “professional prepper”, I admittedly have a lot to learn but I have to say I am better off than most (even if it is just knowledge). I am looking for a group in AZ that is interested in a family oriented, outdoors type, family-man that will be relocating to be near family and work. I am interested in finding either a “hunt camp” or a group that would allow either RV, weekend tent get-aways, or a small shed/house type structure if property is already secured. If it’s a group that gathers to share thoughts and ideas/plans (with no property) that’s fine too. FTF will be delayed until physical move is complete (expected around end of May ’16). I am open to interviews online pending mutual approval for a FTF meeting (email is in profile or post to this message for replies and initial contact). Stay safe out there!
