Its no secret that things are getting dicey in the world. Its important to be prepared and not afraid. Some believe they can do it alone, others feel more can be done in a group. Personally I feel the lone wolf is more of a disadvantage, but that’s up to the individual to decide. Its piece of mind in event of some sort of SHTF event.

Really Simple,

Connect with fellow minded prepper’s, who would like to exchange ideas, skills, learn, discuss, and who are sane. We can meet in a public place, coffee shop, etc. As a hard and fast rule, for me, those who hate America, want to just shoot stuff, take and not give, liar, cheat or steal, DO NOT EVEN RESPOND. Stay clear. Learning about prepping, which is mainstream today, is NOT about starting a Militia, if you want that, join the Army. Why prep? Well besides our government suggesting it, as it will protect our nation in the long run, it is just really smart to do it. Every single person is a prepper. Don’t believe it? Then cancel all your life insurance policies, savings accounts, and just keep one day’s worth of food in your cupboards.

Hi There! Im in Chicago Loop and yep, if SHTF ever goes down, Im gonna have a bit of a hard time to say the leaselol.  But that’s why we’re here, to be proactive. Looking to talk and connect with like minded people. If for nothing else, I am a good person to gather intel from what’s happening in the heart of the city. I’ve been preparing for 7 years and have some skills and knowledge.  Keep the racist & radical to yourself please.  I am looking for no agenda except surviving and thriving. Be well!

There is a new group forming. Currently have 4 families involved. Meeting in Algonquin, usually at the library. We are open to other like minded people. Next meeting will be in mid July. Agenda for that meeting is to bring a book from your “prepper” library, preferably an area that you have knowledge of or experience in. For instance, I will be bringing book on gardening, others on herbal remedies etc. Meeting date/time July 13th, 7:00 pm. I will post location soon.

Feel free to contact me at [email protected] for any questions.

Reaching out again. I am looking to make contact with other preppers. I would love to find a group to join for mutual support and learning skills. But I would welcome contact with beginners too. Maybe there is a need to start a new group in northern Illinois.
I am not an expert but do have some useful skills and some supplies. I live in the Algonquin area.

I am in the Geneva/St. Charles area in Illinois. I am a total newbie to prepping. I feel like I have a decent background that gives me some practical base knowledge as I grew up backpacking in the Sierras, I was in the Military in the Northwest for 8 years and have gone through some basic survival and combat training (not actual combat because when I was in there were no conflicts, just don’t want to be one of those guys trying to act like they’re something they’re not. Guys like that are reprehensible to me).

So I have a basic understanding of freeze dried food, MRE’s, and other storable food, chemical warfare training, being able to live off the land, etc. HOWEVER! Man there is a lot out there to choose from when supplying up. I’m sure most of it is good stuff but I just don’t want to stockpile something that looked good online but in reality isn’t worth the money. I also have limited knowledge of shelf life, quantities, and types of food to store.

I also think it would be fun to just meet some folks near me and make some like minded connections. I’m a big proponent of not reinventing the wheel, I’d love to find a mentor or mentors near me to connect and compare notes.

So is there a group in or near the area I mentioned that meets?

Thanks for reading!
