Hello, we are looking for families or individuals to join our group.

We are offering a safe location to retreat to in the event of a crisis in exchange for help with security and everyday tasks.

We have housing infrastructure in place for around 20-25 members on roughly 50 acres with gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. Everything is setup and ready to go. There is also a written contract in place to protect everyone’s interests.

Our members our expected to have at least a year supply of food, other supplies, personal defense and ammo. New members are given a timeline to acquire food and supplies to be fair to existing members. Everyone must be an asset and not a liability.

We prep for anything that might make cause for martial law.  (Financial collapse, cyber-attack, epidemic, war, EMP, Carrington Event, major Cascadia earthquake or at New Madrid.)

Please reply only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Sandpoint, ID.

We don’t meet in person right away, only after learning more about each other first through emails.

If you would like to contact us we prefer if you use an encrypted email address such as Protonmail or Hushmail just for a little more security.

Hey everyone,

Really new to this. I’ve always been all about making sure to save things and not be wasteful, and have emergency supplies “just in case.” With the way the world is going, though, I want to do something more palpable, focused, and purposeful. I know there’s plenty of preppers in Idaho in Boise and northward. I live in Southeastern Idaho, though, so I wouldn’t be opposed to getting input, help, advice, etc. from experienced people in Utah, Montana, or Wyoming, too.

Thank you for adding me, I look forward to networking with you all.

Hello

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

Family of five to ten looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to live a self sustaining life style full time and move to join a group or help start one. By living a self-sustainable lifestyle before you can survive while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a permanent change in lifestyle to start getting off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid in a secure, secluded area.

I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have a lot of tools and equipment.  I hope to also get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.

We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I can build a living structure.  Will be building some type of an earth structure from one of the following: Aircrete, CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the reactive home concept for a living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling) as taught by Bill Mollison long before Mike Reynolds’ Earth Ship concept ever came along.  I am thinking about build my own CEB press.  I also have the material to build a metal roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I believe biofuel is one answer for renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.

Aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source of meat and vegetables that I am aware of.  Built in a reactive greenhouse.

I have personal experience with compost toilets and have built two of them so far with good results.

We have a 2000 gal. rain catchment system in place at our current location.  Designed for a purification system that is renewable without going to the store for filters.  We built a furnace to make activated charcoal to use with sand (which is in abundance).  We have most of the purification system already assembled and ready for food grade 55 gal barrels.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.

I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn all I can from others as well.

We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.  With changes in electrical consumption we have cut our usage in half over the last year getting ready to switch to solar and wind with battery storage.  I am leaving the old 120v system in place so I can take the new system with me.

I have a wife, two sons, (23 & 31) a daughter-in-law, daughter (26) with 3 year old son all in better than average health.  We also have friends who want to go with us as time will permit them to do so.

No medications required for any of us as we use essential oils, herbs and supplements and hopping to start grow a lot of what we will need.  I am looking forward to learning more on how to make tinctures and our own E oils.  As well as canned and fermented foods(the more of this the less refrigeration needed).   We are all on board for this.

We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in a highly populated area in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Army Vet 73 to 77 was an E5 Motor Sgt in Schweinfurt, Germany.

We have construction experience, electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs (one retro fit roof the size of two foot ball fields 82′ up), mechanic of both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, some reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and much more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen total destruction, civil disorder, rioting, marshal law with state troopers and national guard.  I’ve also seen families who were desperate and not prepared at all along with families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I lived at a mission base 13 years ago with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Eleven years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, along the outer bank islands to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling my two youngest.

We are debt free and looking to be in a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.  We are not looking for a group to join but one to be a part of to form friendship and trust where we cover each others back or 6 as some say.

We have served the Lord for 23 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for someone with a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications as to how we could fit together.  We can support ourselves and are not looking for a free ride.

If you want to talk about someday maybe doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday maybe doing something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

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.

My family and I are relatively new to this, and have been prepping for a little over 2 years now.  As part of this we moved to SE Idaho, only to find the area is not typical prepper territory.  Finding like-minded people has been difficult.  Although we have been able to rouse a few people out of their sleep, none are ready for a commitment to a preparedness community.  We are seeking a group to join instead of starting our own.  Everything I have read is clear that we need to make our requirements known up front.  Here is what we are looking for, or what we stand for:

  • Patriot.  We love the Constitution, and support law enforcement and the military when they perform their legal functions.
  • Christian.  Many groups we have seen here are “just respect each other and we will be okay”.  We don’t believe that works long term.  It works fine for people not having to interact with each other every day.  It doesn’t work for people in close proximity all the time, where their worldview will probably conflict on issues that affect everyone personally.  While it would work prior to an event, after an event, when you have daily working relationships under possibly difficult conditions, it becomes a natural fracture point for a community.
  • Democratic in nature, but with a strong leader.  Decision making is up to the community, BUT when something happens and a decision needs to be made yesterday, there needs to be a leader in place to make a decision and can deal with the pressure brought by other leaders, but still hold a group together.  No dictatorships, just strength.
  • Everyone has a life until TEOTWAWKI.  I have had good interactions with a group in northern Idaho, but their demands are quite stringent, enough so that it affects life in the current normal.  Every group has demands and should.  The demands must be reasonable, although we agree that if events point to a need for more activity, demands should increase.
  • The group must be organized.  There are many groups without bylaws or realistic preparedness expectations, exactly the opposite of the last point made.  At a minimum, we would expect to have requirements for gear, food storage, retreat planning, acceptance of new members both before and after an event, list of specialties/skills for group members to have or pursue, and group operations after an event.  There are others that are important, but you get the idea.
  • A TEOTWAWKI mindset.  We do not believe that preparing for an extended weather or natural disaster emergency is enough.  To use a pop culture reference, if you aren’t preparing for the zombie apocalypse, you are not preparing.  Of course there are levels of preparedness to go through to reach that point, but the end goal for our family is complete group sufficiency.
  • Acceptance of young children.  There are some groups that will not accept families with young kids.  We have two, both under 11 years old.
  • We are willing to move at some point in the future, but it is not in the plans at this time.

About us:

  • All in good health without medical needs.  I am in my mid 40’s and my wife is in her mid 30’s.  I have had several accidents over the years requiring surgery, but in no way does it limit my ability to contribute physically to the group.
  • I am a minister and an engineer.  BA in Computer Science.  Former military (only 2 years), artillery attached to a light infantry division, but no combat experience.  I have experience in the medical field as a CNA and am working on becoming proficient in long term survival medicine.
  • My wife is a homemaker, home school teacher, and is learning about basic natural medicine, such as essential oils and remedies for common ailments without the use of modern medication.  Formerly a pharmacy technician.
  • Currently ready for a one year emergency from a food and basic gear standpoint.

looking forward to hearing from you all.

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

All,  Some great posts here, glad I found this forum.  I live in Northern California, East Bay and looking for similar folks in the area.  I was born and raised in California and saddened to see the state of our State.  I am considering to move up to Seattle area or get a Fall Out Location in the Sierras.  I am Married with 3-kids and looking to see if there are others concerned with the area.

With the political situations getting more intense, protests increasing and a large number of convicts being released in the streets (thanks to Brown) a bad situation is bound to happen. Looking to get a sense of what other are doing here in California or whether they are looking to move out.  I do want to be prepared for worst case scenarios, but at the same time need to be near a tech hub for work. Further, I do want to have my home base near a city dwelling for the University Systems for my kids.

One thought is to move to Seattle and get a FOL in Idaho.  Comments / thoughts welcome!

I’m don’t really know if I’m a prepper, but I’m looking to move off grid to central Idaho and live a more simple life. Hopefully I can make this move by next summer. I’m into crafting my own things and love the idea of a homesteading farm. I’m looking for others who are interested in living in a similar fashion to be my neighbors, friends, and hopefully even a community where we can barter and help one another as needed. I’d like to gradually become less dependant on money and mainstream city life’s modern rush of complexities and stress. While I don’t want to go completely without electricity, I do enjoy the internet and winding down in the evenings watching a movie. I guess I would just like to survive and maintain a more self sustained lifestyle, if the banks shut down and the power goes out.

hello. my wife and I and two young children are seeking a group in the areas in title. My sights are set on sheridan, wy area and pierre, sd area.  We are open to other areas.  Perference to areas with all four seasons with some lean toward a cooler climate (to keep the crazies out 🙂 ).  I am construction management/inspection by trade with background in agriculture. I have my own tools to build a house. I am not a professional licensed engineer but know enough about civil engineering principles to do just the type of work that would typically be involved in homesteading (houses, roads, etc). I’m interested in finding a group that wants to develop a christian based community (not necessarily all christian but hold to those values). I believe the founders of this country had things kicked off in the right direction, but greed and corruption (as is typical with all human based governments) have settled in and ruined what was originally good. we would like to have a couple acres to build a house and sustainably farm. My house building and farming techniques are not typical for america, but are what I believe to be the best of modern technologies and sustainability (CEB/earthship, ECHO). Please give me a shout joshuandstacy at G male dot com or respond to this post.

Looking for others interested in moving there and looking to possibly buy or rent a little land to live over quite a long period of time.

May travel the western USA first unless we find something quick, before the snow falls. Want to move by end of Sept. or Early Oct.

Anyone interested that would like help, or would like to help, would be greatly appreciated and accepted!

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.

I am a retired , 68, single in relatively good health. I currently live in the Seattle area. Bad area for survival, overdue mega quake, big volcano overdue for eruption (Rainier), crime, and the worst of all lots of Liberals. I’m not big on joining groups. I would just like to buy a place where my neighbors are of  like mind and help each other out. I am not flush with money but maybe I can work something out. If you are a scammer  forget it. I  will review everything with a lawyer and have title insurance. I’m not a bible thumper or a church goer but I do believe in the Book, although my understanding of it is not what you would call main stream. I would like to find a young lady to share the journey with. So ladies if you want to relocate, and want male companionship this may be your golden opportunity. 

[Trogg, read the rules on posting here – http://www.preppergroups.com/about/]

There are no mosquitos capable of carrying zika in either Washington State or Idaho, just something to consider. I want to be as self-sufficient as possible without getting too carried away. I visited Priest River last fall and that is the area I think I would like to live.  In the past I lived in vans and I lived in my pickup truck camper for five years do to poverty. At one time I guess I  was kind of a hippie. With that kind of past, I would not freak out when the going gets tough. I am thinking of making a trip to Priest River soon or possibly Sand Point also. Maybe we could meet for coffee. If you just want to talk that is Ok too. I would like to make new friends in the area. trogg90 [at] yahoo [dot] com

The rest of my siblings along with their children will follow by the summer of 2017.
Looking to connect with a group in Oregon or Idaho.
Looking for some help and direction.
Thank you,

Hello, we are located 2 hours north of Spokane. Originally from Seattle, moved here years ago to get away from the heavy population. We are looking for another family or individuals to join together with us in the event of a crisis.

We have housing infrastructure in place, gardens, orchard, chickens, off-grid power, defensive positions and back up water sources. We would also be interested in hearing from other groups that are out there.

Also those in Idaho or Montana feel free to reply but please only if you live or are willing to move to within roughly 75 miles of Newport WA.

Please private message us if you are interested and we can exchange email addresses. Thanks

Been several years since my last visit to this site, so I’ve posted this to both the Forums, AND main page. I hope. Bear with me as I’m still learning to navigate whatever it is they’ve done with the place…

I will be looking to move my Family come late August, early September, from NW Indiana to Idaho. We’re looking around the upper half of the state, as far North as Bonner’s Ferry, and as far South as New Meadows, Although I would prefer more North, given my familiarity in Mountainous regions. At the Moment we’re seeking to strike a balance between low population density (low enough that if I need to GOOD, I won’t be snaking my way through a labyrinthine metropolis rife with looters and roadblocks), yet large enough That work is readily available. Physical Labor in construction, agriculture, manufacturing, etc. are my Business, but I also have experience in Retail and Private Security. I am certainly not an “Office Guy,” although I am not opposed to it. Just don’t have any experience in the field. I do pick up on things pretty quick. Other things to consider: We will be renting an apartment. Here in Indiana, you can find Homes for rent. Smaller two bedroom homes can go for as little as $500-$750, depending on the area. This is preferable to an apartment as I would need to rent space at a storage facility for all of our preps. We have far too much for an apartment and utilize some of it in our day to day. We would also like to keep our vegetable and herb garden going as canning is a significant part of our preparations. We try to live as much of the lifestyle as possible, in advance. Again, difficult in an apartment. Lastly, we’re interested in a Bible-Based Church that is friendly to those with Preparedness in mind. Once we’ve established ourselves in the area and gotten into the groove of things, we will arrange meet and greets with local groups to see where we might fit into things and be able to contribute the most.

So if you’re familiar with the area and may have an idea or two, we’d love to hear from you. I know I’m fairly specific, but I’m a pretty adaptable guy. Just shooting me some general information on the areas I’ve outlined would be greatly appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to hear me out.

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group for when it all falls apart.  I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

Hello all, I have been prepping for years. Thank God since i had lost my only income for a year. Fortune smiled on me and I was Blessed with over 200 acres of forested land just north of Boise, ID. My adult boys live up here with me and last night I decided people need help. I am building cabins on the property and decided people should be able to prepare even if they have no time. Just an Idea at this time. What if i market my property as a bug out location for those unable to prep due to time? IE. They can buy a cabin for the bug out, if need i can gather their supplies for the cabin? Of course it would cost something to do all this for them. Possibly building a community? any ideas on this? feel free to be brutal.
