My wife and I are moving down to Missouri from Alaska in October. We are looking for other preppers to get in contact with. I would like to start a group to prep with. I have decent knowledge of setting up security and weapons as well as some basic survival skills. I am currently in the Army as an 11B so itd he great to meet up with other vets possibly.

I’m just testing the waters to see if there’s anyone in the Odessa/Blue Springs/anywhere else to the east of the KC area interested in starting a group. I’m a second generation prepper, a Christian, an old punk rocker and a single father of two.

Howdy y’all. Been here a while. Of course as most of us, doing our things. I’m in need of searching for some folks to help me out on a twelve acre off-grid homestead that is a work in progress, primitive by modern standards but with amenties. It’s an hour East of Springfield near Baker Creek, Sigma 3, flea markets, animals swaps and an area with loads of resources and things to do, not to mention Amish/Mennonite country on all sides. If you don’t have a place of your own, it’s just a matter of connecting the dots and sharing the effort. If you’re interested, give me a shout at stevesmitty79 [at] yahoo [dot] com or just google my username. I’ve had it for a while. I have a youtube channel too. Blessings to you and yours, Steve.

Seeking to form—Small Christ centered conservative preparedness group of like minded individuals / families.

We are seeking only 3-5 couples or families to join together ahead of time to prepare a small group and land before a collapse.  

The type of people / families that we would like to find can be from anywhere in the USA and be willing to move in the next year to begin to build the retreat.  All must be firm Christians with a solid scriptural foundation and like minded to some degree. As families begin to join one another then bylaws will be created with all adults working together to form a Christ centered and constitutional view.  In other words we are all equals in this. Very specific requirements for supplies of food, gear, seeds, and essentials will be made. A higher goal than most of 3-5 years of the above would be on my list for all to obtain. 1 year as an initial in order to be considered.  Must be living a life free of drugs, alcohol, tobacco, and {sin to the best of your ability}. My goal here is not to be a lord / ruler, but to be a band of brothers helping each other and being more of a small tight knit family. All must be able to work together and not be the types that try to control and make everyone do what they see best.  That may even be of utmost importance for success in this.

Currently we are shopping for 100+ acres of land in some strategic locations with the following characteristics- Mountainous or hill country area that is defensive.  Region with mild winters. Land that is good for farming with surrounding population of people that farm.  As low as possible of a population with no large cities anywhere nearby and away from smaller cities. Must have good quality year round water source on site. Away from major roads. Ect. With that said we do have some areas in mind but are also willing to work with others if they want to help with choosing the area with all that goes into such a strategy.  When it comes to buying the land this could be done in different ways and it is something that we can work out. We are buying land anyways regardless if we find someone here unlike some who are looking for others to fund their mission of buying land or building a bunker ect.  Most important skills for a collapse would be farming, defense / real military operator skills that only 10% of those in the military have, and emergency medical care (not your typical family doc stuff).  Other important skills but lesser on the list would be JOAT’s, carpentry, electrical, communications, mechanical, and macgyver types who can rig anything from a pile of junk.
If what I have said here fits who you are and makes you want to know more please PM me.

Spring has sprung in the southeast Missouri Ozarks!   If you have been considering relocating then now is the time.

We want to build a small village here, on this 40 acres.   You can lease property here to build on.   To get to the meat of the matter………..

You —-

• Are preparing not out of fear, but from a determination created by knowledge.

• Want to live in a geographically stable area where winters are not extreme.

• Want to live off the beaten path where your place can’t be seen from any county road.

• Want to build your own sustainable house, and lifestyle.

• Want to live a permaculture lifestyle where as much as possible is used, repurposed, and recycled, with creating as much symbiotic relationships between animals and plants as possible.

• Want to live around others with similar interests where you can talk about a preparing lifestyle freely.

• Are already preparing the best you can.

• Have skills which not only benefit you and yours but others.

• Have your own camper to live in while building.

• Are financially stable enough to live in the boonies where jobs are scarce, but that doesn’t matter because you want to spend your time building a self-sustaining life.

No-No’s —– Anger Issues, Alcoholic, Drugs without a prescription, Sticky Fingers, Entitlement Issues, Lieing, Mooching, Control Issues, Cowards.

Must Have’s —– At Least Some Skill Set(s) Related to…. Animal Husbandry, Carpentry, Construction, Defense, Electricity, Gardening, Hunting, Mechanics, Medicine, Water Management.

There Will Be —–

• A 1 Acre Builder’s Lot to build and live on, to be leased for $200 per month, as long as there is a centralized currency system.    Then after SHTF there is no lease fee.

• No outside electricity allowed in.   You must provide your own generator for building to use power tools.   All houses will be built as off-grid. Solar is OK.

• Only rocket mass stoves are allowed for heating.   No regular wood heating stoves as they use four times the wood of rocket mass heaters.   Regular wood heating stoves would use too much of our resources.   Wood cook stoves and rocket cook stoves OK.

• An alternative septic system, self-built on your acre.    An alternative is a self-built, home-sized biogas plant.

I am forming a brand new community in Southern Missouri in the beautiful Ozarks. There is plenty of timber, water, and shelter that can be made.

This is an ideal location for a pole shift, the big bad earthquake, etc. This is because its west of West Plains but far enough away from the big city of Springfield, MO. Plenty of security and privacy.

I am looking for partners to join with me in this adventure. These partners will be the founders and decision makers for this community. I am looking between five to ten people only including myself. There will be a buy in with a trial period.

If you already have the equipment and the transportation you can already bring to the table, then you can immediately be a partner after you are vetted. Everything you have would become community property. That would be a huge jump start getting the community another step off the ground.

That is a personal decision. But, to me if you have invested hard work and paid your dues for it, then you should not have to pay for the land or buy in. Become an instant owner and a decision maker for this amazing opportunity. If not, of course keep what is yours!

Others that join the community after five years in the community, can have a buy in. Those new members can explore the community and contribute to get a feel it is for them. They will just pay a monthly or a yearly fee.
I already have permission from the owner to build this community with no issues.

It will be limited resource for electric, water, cell phone, & internet for now. I want to be off grid. If you cannot do without & need all the modern conveniences this opportunity is not for you currently..

We will have military experience, experienced preppers, teachers how to cook, garden, construction, basic survival skills, basic medical care. I want people to have a skill set. You need to be able to protect the community. Not be passive if help is needed! This is a very important rule!

Once our community is established with basics, we will working on a goal to have underground survival. We will be working on it in steps or phases.

We all will be a new family of survivalists /preppers. We have to rely and trust each other. There will very strict rules in place and bylaws.  There will be extensive backgrounds checks that will be done. There will be random drug tests. No tobacco or or drugs will be allowed!!

We will be able to work, contribute, & create products that we can sell to keep the community going.
It is not for families for now.

I have a lot of amazing ideas & designs that I need help with from paper to the finished product!

While I don’t have the greatest knowledge of how to go about being self-sufficient and prepared, I do have a house on 24 beautiful acres, and I’m learning more all of the time. I moved here by myself with a desire to start a more self-sufficient, healthy, and generous lifestyle. I am a 37-year-old, Christian male with a full-time job. I work from home here, and my place is between Bolivar and Buffalo. If there are others who are looking to be more self-sufficient and who are interested in joining me in developing that type of lifestyle here, let me know!

Applications now being taken from retired single military veterans for caretaking position to assist a retired military family, in the beautiful Ozark mountains of S. Central Mo. This is an on site rental arrangement. Farm experience and camper-trailer needed. Will train. Shotgunning experience helpful. This is a preppers paradise offer, where you get the best of both worlds.

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.

I’m looking to buy land in Missouri. Would like it to be untouched and off the grid no phone or power lines on it. Would prefer it to be around or in close enuff drive to other preppers. I’ve been looking for awhile now and just haven’t found what I’m looking for so if anyone knows of anything let me know please.

I am a retired Navy vet that has been prepping 7 years.  I currently live in central Mississippi, moved here from Dallas, in an attempt to escape the big city in an economic crash.  I have determined that this location is unacceptable in a magnetic pole realignment scenario.  Need to be over 900′ above sea level.  The Ozarks seem to fit the requirements for both of these scenarios.

I am a young 65 year old that is still in good shape and I drive a ’97 F250HD that is in good shape as well.  Plan on purchasing a travel trailer prior to this move for my “home”.  I own over a years worth of freeze dried food, have a Berkey water filter, have a library of over 100 books and magazines related to off-grid living and just too many items for self sufficient living to list.

I am spiritual in that I believe in God but not attending a church.  I attempt to live a Christian life but fail all too often.  Willing to work with building/maintaining a garden, any construction projects or any other projects that need to be planned/worked.

I have worked in Naval aviation as a hydraulic tech, an Air Traffic Controller and finally in the field of computer operations and maintenance.  Since my retirement I have spent 15 years driving 18 wheelers nation wide.  I maintain my own vehicles, have rebuilt 2 automotive engines, have an adequate amount of mechanic tools and experience to get me through tough times.  Am working on several ideas to create off-grid DC power, 24/7/356, without relying on wind or solar to charge a large bank of batteries.

Visit our Christian prepper website to see our most visited article on why the Ozark mountains are the safest place on earth… according to several sciences and according to an open vision God gave Corrie ten Boom. Our articles give the founders testimony of his calling to this type of ministry. We are about to start making mini villages of mini homes. You might want to look into this.

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

Just joined this site with intentions of gathering information and joining a community or group in the SW MO area. Anyone on here have any further info on the theory that there will be an economic crash at the end of September? I’m a dentist in the area and have all but given up hope on this country’s government but still believe in the goodness of people. An economic crash is certain, but if its THIS soon, I need to begin lines of communication to see what options exist for my family and I.
