I have been Prepping for over 20 years, and have heard many scenario’s about what people think will be a safe haven if SHTF. So let me start by telling you this, To survive SHTF your biggest concern should be your family, neighbors, transients, and passer byes. The location you choose should not be in the mountains or 20 miles from the nearest hospital of law enforcement agency.

Now let me explain! If your intent is to fight the government and you think you can fend off an attack from a 10 man assault team of trained and battle ready soldiers! Think again. If you have to face a 10 man assault team, its going to be a bad day for everyone. Your team should be ready to fight only when protecting your family, friends, and your property and food supply. Now saying this the City is no place to be either. If you are in a big city when SHTF, your chances are drastically reduced. What is more secure than a hardened structure built by the government to house and secure people? You got it, I local Jail or Prison that can keep everybody safe when SHTF. If the government is after you, you can’t hide long. So in my opinion a secure Facility in a rural town with low population is the best place to defend your group. and you remain close enough for help and to others to set up bartering for supplies needed.

We have the perfect place to take a last stand. We are looking for individuals that want to join a group that are thinking outside of the box. I get a kick out of people that think they will survive in the woods and hunt their own food. There is a reason the hunter gatherers didn’t survive in the past. Always keep in mind that you will not be the only person in the woods that think the same way you do! Knowing that the hunter became the hunted is not a good feeling when you are trying to get sleep. Feel free to respond and we can talk more about our facility, lets see if we make a good match in prepping for the future. Thanks Tom

20 room Bed and Breakfast will convert to Bug out Location in the event of SHTF situation. 30,000 sf school upper floor contains housing, lower level contains convenient store, liquor store and deli. Everything you need when Sh*t hits the fan. RV Spaces will be available for those who have their own housing. We need families to participate in security, farming, facility management, health care. Plenty of room for your preps. Interested parties can respond if interested. Initial investment depends on your planned accommodations.

Hello,

My name is Faith, I am a 19-year-old prepper. I’ve been learning and practicing prepping since I was twelve years old. Recently I have developed a master plan for SHTF scenarios, and I’d like to create an established group of preppers, young or old, new or experienced; to help me build that community.  Currently, I live in Barren County, Kentucky, however, I want the community to go beyond physical location.

I’ll attach a copy of my plan files below.

My plan for this network goes like this: This forum thread is the online base camp for us to communicate. Currently, it is just me, but those that wish to form an official network.  We will swap contact information, a name you wish to be called and a general location (nothing too specific, just to get a basic idea as to where we all are.)

From there we’d discuss our knowledge of prepping and any other questions, then when enough people are a part of this network, choose a place for a meet up to get to know each other and establish not only a network but also a friendship, with a common goal of preparedness and survival.

Just as a precaution I’ll make something clear up front: I am a tolerant, open minded person. I respect all ways of life and those who wish to join will not be discriminated on for any reason, you will be judged by your words and actions alone. I will not accept bigoted, racist, sexist, or any form of prejudice. All opinions and expressions are welcomed to be voiced but please do so in a respectable manner. It is encouraged to site and support all statements for show education on the topic of discussion. Bottom line, regardless of skin color, culture, religion, gender, sexuality or any other label we are all here to prepare and share knowledge of survival, and life doesn’t care who or what you are.

With that our of the way:

Those who wish to join the network can post a reply to this post with a method of contact and I will respond within three days. Questions or comments can be discussed here as well.

Note: not all my files will be shown, for security reasons, but you can get an idea of my plans.

Best Wishes,

Faith S.

Greetings Preppers in Louisville, Kentucky area.

I am 51 years old and we have severally autistic son age 15.  I have been prepping for 3 years. We have house on the edge of the suburbs in Southern Indiana 30 minutes from Louisville. I have a family business with a warehouse close to the downtown area where I am building water filter sink stations and Faraday cage out houses on wheels.

I want to build a group of regular preppers and prepper families with special needs children and adults in the Louisville Kentucky and Southern Indiana area.

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.

Military Trained, Prepper group with a 30,000 sq ft School in SW Kentucky is looking for members that want to prepare for bad times. We have 6 acres for growth and plenty of rooms for new members. Christian members are welcome as long as you do not try to push your beliefs on others. This is a survival group, not a church.

Do ever wonder if a group of men woman and children could gather and be what the apostles were in Acts 2:42-47? Our Father told us to watch and prepare but how can we prepare if we are so attached to a world system that is bound to fall and all those who are part of it. Soon; it will be time to live as they lived whether we like it or not.

So lets come together now and explore what Father would do in us and through us as we prepare for the Tribulation that will try the world.

Our vision is to not only prepare but to build an ark for those who will come when it hits. The fatherless, the poor, those mislead by false doctrines all could be helped. I know someone is going to say we need to be careful letting someone in once it hits but my GOD is able and will help us. With that said if you would like to help us get there then contact me soon.

We need all the help we can get!

We are a family of 5, three humans, 1 hunting dog and 1 Labrador Retriever.
We have lived off grid as a test for over a year.
We have and know solar power very well.
We know wind power, we know hydro power.
We can grow organic food anytime of year and we know how to keep our soil producing year after year.
We have raised organic chickens that produced the best eggs on earth.
We are looking to meet people we can trust, that we can develope life-long relationships with, so when the shit does hit the fan our strength in numbers will help us prevail.
If we cannot find a community already set up, we have no problem finding a good piece of land to set one up for the right people.
The Louisville area, the North Georgia mountains, Tennessee mountains or North Carolina mountains are our preferred areas if we find we need to buy land again.

Please feel free to reach out to us, we are new to this website as of 12-08-2016, and we are looking forward to meeting safe, sane and like-minded people that absolutely refuse to not survive whatever happens.

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

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.

This is a generational farm from the 1700’s
What I have to offer.
138 acres of land about 50% in timber so lots of wildlife. A person could make a living from trapping alone here.
3/4 of a mile of it is on the green river so lots of fishing.
2 drilled wells.
1 hand dug well.
6 springs one built out completely.
So your water is covered!
Right now I’m giving the gardens a 2 year break. First time ever I think. But all together their 2 acres.
This area of ky is known for its whitetail deer and turkey population.
So in all your basic needs are covered.

I’m wanting to start a few hydroelectric plants to be completely off the grid.
I’m currently going threw the training to be an instructor for ccw (concealed carry weapons)

As I said before it’s a generational farm so I’m covered up in equipment! Just about anything one would wish to do could be done.

We’re a none religious family but excepting of those who are. DONT try to convert us! We’re also lgbt friendly.

Well this is a very small window into who we are and what we’re offering. If you’re interested let me know.

We are looking to buy land in one of previous mentioned states. Hoping to find people willing to help get land so that we could get larger acres. Let’s start surviving together. Let’s talk.

Hi I’m Chris.  I’m relatively new to prepping only having come across the concept about half a year ago when I read through the “Going Home” 7 book series in about a month (awesome read).  Politically I’m a moderate and open minded letting myself make decisions for me on what is best for myself, my community and my country. Religiously I’m a born-again Christian after a divorce a few years ago.  I’m a 29 year old male originally from rural Georgia having grown up on a chicken farm and having a deep love for nature, camping, hiking, fishing, hunting and anything that happens outdoors away from the hustle and bustle of what our society calls “life”….not a big believer of that.  I’m finishing up my PhD in Microbiology and Immunology in May so I’m a highly educated country boy with a love of the outdoors, shooting (particularly long range marksmanship…love my 300 win mag sniper rifle…can do inch and half groups at 300 yards 🙂 ) and a deep discontentment with where society is headed.  I’m especially talented with a microscope and a rifle,  🙂 not very common for sure, and I’m looking to join a group that can teach me more about prepping and allow me to give back to the group so we can all thrive.  I’m looking to contribute and put in some hard work for the betterment of the community.  I’m 6’4” and 250 lbs with an athletic build so I’m capable of doing some heavy lifting where its needed.  Being a grad student finances aren’t my current strength but I can definitely help out labor wise.  Let me know how I can help and become a part of your group.

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.

My wife and I are looking for a group to join forces with. If we can’t find anyone we think is going in the right direction and we feel comfortable with (reciprocal of course) we will start a group. We are interested in living full-time in a secure and 100% self-sufficient small community. We have many skills and resources. We have excellent property already set up as an adequate bug-out location, but it doesn’t have enough arable land to support more than a few families in a sustainable way. We can get more, no big deal, but do we want to foot the bill for everyone? Not really, and if you’re not invested, you’re not as likely to be committed. Of course, we recognize there are other ways to be invested than financially, and many people simply don’t have the cash. So to us, a significant factor would be ownership.

The thing that bothers me most about other people is extremism. I mean that in general, not specifically the way the word is thrown around in the media these days. So I don’t want to go to any extremes and say that everyone must own land or that no one may own land. I believe it is workable to have a mix. We like private ownership, but that may not be what works for everyone. Many people prefer to rent and avoid the responsibilities of ownership. Some are in the middle; willing to own their home but unwilling to maintain the grounds such as condo ownership. The right legal structure could certainly allow for, and protect the people involved in any number of scenarios. Tennessee law not only allows, but encourages common interest developments. We would definitely be looking for (or creating) a good, fair legal structure.

We envision a group of 50 or so on a compound of 50 or so acres which is in turn surrounded by about 100 acres or more of forest.

We are not particularly religious, and we have no bias against anyone.

We are not militaristic, but we will defend our community. We consider concealment to be the first line of defense, deterrence the second, and overwhelming force the last.

We believe in the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution. We aren’t interested in dictatorships, theocracies, socialism, communism, etc.

We believe we can produce everything needed in a permanently sustainable way by carefully balanced group members.

We don’t want to do anything illegal.

If you already have such community, we would be very interested.

If you are interested in throwing in with us, we can offer land (52 acres) for your use now. As I said, we are looking for more, so I can’t say what the future might hold. I can say that we are ethical and fair.

My husband and I are preparing and would like to talk to people from our state, or maybe close to us about what they are doing and what more we can do. Also husband wants to build a wind turbine for power to our home, but isn’t quite sure how to make certain parts. I love to garden and can and would enjoy others with ideas and recipes too.
