Hello, my wife and I currently live in West Michigan, but after denying it for a couple years, are finally feeling the strong pull to the Ozarks. We don’t know anyone down there, and all I know is from YouTube Homesteaders (and Bear Independent/PJ viking prep) and reading on the internet. We’ve been praying heavily and are trusting His timing.

We are committed to stay in MI until next spring (work contract, small excavating company) but are really liking the sounds of MO. We figured we’d get a small place before we settle on to a homestead (probably from raw land, idk we’ll see where God leads us), so we can see the area and network. Things are getting expensive here, and land is scarce. Sounds cheaper and slowed down down there (I work 6 days a week and haven’t much to show for it, getting burnt out amd frustrated).

We have gardening and food preservation knowledge (we apartment-stead veggies and quail, LARGE garden out of town), have hunting/fishing hobbies, both handy (I’ve worked trades and done diesel tech on trucks/equipment), comfortable around firearms, etc. Looking to Homestead w/ intent to plug in to local community and prep/network for when things get sketchy. End-of-the-World eschatology aside, things are gonna be hairy here for a few years and MI doesn’t enable to live that way. We might have the greater family tribe follow us w/in a few years.

Weither there are current groups on here, or elsewhere please feel free to get in touch with us or would be grateful to get nuudged in the right direction.

Thanks,

Don’t know how to use and navigate this site yet.  Just joined a few minutes ago in an effort to meet like-minded people who know what is coming and want to prepare for the worst.

I’m looking for born-again Christians with money and skills, who would like to help purchase some land to farm (animals and crops) for survival and to sell/trade in the end days.  Separate houses or trailers, but with some things shared, i.e. large garage, and the ability to help protect one another.  Would like to meet people and discuss in person if possible, so we can interview one another and hopefully become friends.

Email me at [email protected]

Hello everyone!

I’m a single Christian man (30 yrs) who watches the markets everyday and preps with family and friends. I discuss market strategies, surviving in grid-down scenarios, barter and trade, rebooted system, etc. I’m looking to expand the network for myself and friends. It’s not enough to survive on your own, we need communities. I live around the Springfield area. Feel free to reach out to me via email ([email protected]) or Signal (417-766-9212). Looking forward to hearing from people. Have a blessed day!

Hi im 29 and my boyfriend is 28 and we have a 2 year old son. We are a small christan family and are looking to go off the grid. Its no secret that times are getting worse and when it comes time for the vaccine we wont be taking it and with that will come even harder times. We want to get ourselves set up with the right people the right fighters who remeber that this is a nation under GOD and this is the home of the FREE AND BRAVE. we dont have the most experience as far as prepping but were no dummies and not fearful of hardwork to get ourselves and others set up where we can all feel safe and watch over one another when the time truely comes. We know a bit about gardening and my boyfriend has raised livestock for a good portion of his childhood. Were willing to go anywhere and helpout with whatever we can! Were proud gun owners as well. Please get ahold of me and id be glad to talk,with so few of us that see the truth we must stick together. Email- [email protected] Thank you!

I’m not a super prepared person sadly. Partially it’s from lack of knowledge and partially lack of money. I am not asking anyone for a handout. I currently would just like to find a group of people that I can learn from so that I don’t waste a lot of time and money in getting prepared. I do have some knowledge, like hunting and fishing. I can build my own basic shelter, and I have some of the equipment that would be required to do those things. I am a Marine (served back in the 90s), so I have knowledge of security measures, basic first aid, and stuff like that. I would like to find a group that I could start working with to get prepared for a day that I am afraid is coming all too soon. I live in South County, St Louis, MO, but I am willing to travel into southern Missouri, and even northern Oklahoma. I am also currently looking for a new job, so if someone knows of one in the region I have described, I would be more than willing to relocate.

Looking for organized group of outgoing preppers who are extremely serious….

Reside in Oklahoma currently. Have been preparing and training hard and soft skills for a collapse scenario since childhood(almost obsessively). Rural born and raised. Urban adapted. Young but not too young. Has initiative to take action and lead if there is no one else capable.

Enough food and supplies for almost a year, a bit shy under. Skilled and knowledgeable in combat tools and tactics.

Hot yet controlled temperament. Polite, Oathkeeper. Determined, resilient, integrity-based character. Basic medical skills. Basic horticulture knowledge. Expert marksman. Runs towards gunfire. Enjoys action. Proficient in hand to hand, despite being lightweight. Guardian mindset.

Last week, 60 pullups with breaks and vertical rope climb plus 8 mile run with breaks in high heat wave.  Never uses air conditioning. Doesn’t eat fastfood very much at all. Hunter-gatherer based diet. Haven’t been sick at all since covid.

Politically believe that the family nucleus is the heart and blood of a nation. Traditional values, mixed with centric balance. Freedom is not negotiable. Small gov, and heavy limit to corporations is best.  Libertarian/Republican

Bottom Line Up Front (BLUF)

buying raw land, looking for like minded people to help cultivate the land.

If you’re reading this you are probably a lot like me in a sense of you are looking for a community of like minded people all working towards shared goals and security.
I am in the process of buying some land in Southern MO and am looking to be part of creating a small simple community of mature and like minded individuals. I am not going to sugar coat this; the land is raw. No utilities (will go solar with large battery bank), no water storage or well (yet), no waste disposal (yet) .
My plan is to be there by the end of October in a large canvas tent with a wood stove and start making the life I want then and there. First 6-9 months will be focused on building the infrastructure needed, then concentrating on self sufficiency with food. This would be greatly reduced with a few extra hands helping out.
I am in search of people who have the same vision and are willing to sacrifice for it, but maybe just don’t have the land ownership to do it.  You sacrifice your time and energy to create something, you will never have to pay to simply live on the land you work over. We will work out a zero dollar land lease. All I ask is you have enough money to cover your living expenses and as we get things evolved the costs should dwindle drastically.
I don’t care, will not ask,  or expect you to tell me, unless voluntarily, about your race, religion or sexual orientation – these are just three data points that make up the thousands of unique traits everyone has and I value other traits like: hardworking, honest, good moral compass, trustworthy, etc. That being said if you cannot have an open mind about how other people live no point reaching out to me.

 

If this sounds like an opportunity you want to explore a bit feel free to reply here or email me at [email protected] with a bit about yourself / partner (if any). Ask any questions you like, I will be bluntly honest with my answers.
Also please look into a ProtonMail account if you don’t have one – you can get one for free and much more secure than Gmail.

Greetings,
It is odd to me that this site does not have nearly the life and activity it once had, Considering the precarious times we are currently living in. Perhaps their is better places in which I am not privy to.           Regardless 
I am a Red Blooded, God fearing, American Man. A widower, Lower mid 40s and father to adult children who save my Father in Heaven, My children are my greatest love and deepest joy.
I own a small piece of very rural land and have lived an off grid lifestyle for a number of years. I have raised some animals lived off of solar and a small hydro electric system, and hunted for food never sport. grown vegetables,
Fact of the matter is I can not stay awake 24/7 and care very little for the lone wolf idea. I am willing to join a group I can go where ever needs be. I have nothing holding me to this spot as beautiful as it is,
I have everything I need all of my own long term food in bulk, more than most less than supper preppers. or to make this shorter I have the things preppers should have. I need one commodity only where ever i land and that is water.
If your group has security teams or personal I hope and pray it does. I am willing to pass any test you have be it solo tactical Pistol or Rifle or fire teams tactical courses. no matter if it is outdoor obstacle course or indoor shooting house,  Note I will only do live fire exercises or fire team drills with those i have seen have the ability and skillsets to do so as i would not expect anyone to do with me until proven.
If their are any interested contact me at [email protected]

Hello, I have created a discord server to help people connect with other groups nearest to them. This is set up for the entire state of Missouri which is broken down into 5 sectors. NW-KC, NE-STL, Central-LOZ, SW-SPR, SE… We just started so hang in there if you cannot find a group just yet as I am adding lots of people/groups day by day. Also, We will probably add a sector for NW Arkansas if needed and OK. These groups will be run by whoever the group leader is. I am just providing the space for people to search/connect with MAGS in their area, I don’t actually run these groups. I am in process of building a website as well to go along with the discord server. We are heading into a dark winter and there is not much time left to get your preps ready and make connections with like-minded preppers in your area so do not hesitate to join. link to the server here, also these links expire every so ofter so you can email me for the link if it is expired [email protected] G M A I L

The times the people of the United States are currently facing are very dire. Because of this, we are looking for a small group of people who might need a safe harbor in the weeks ahead. Our site is totally off grid and has certain benefits, but detractors too. Mainly, clean up and clearing a lot of trash. But there is a fairly large spring fed fish pond, 20 acres of land, numerous deer and wildlife, some limited solar power, and a number of cabins. Cabins, unused ones, must be cleaned before use. One cabin is already taken.

if you have already read the book series, Darkness Reigns, you will understand everything.

I am looking to start, or find a group in the NW MO, SW IA area.

I am a 25yo male farmer, so I have a broad array of skills, and a back that can take heavy lifting. I even know which end of the shovel you stick in the ground!

Been prepping for 3 years, so I’m not new to the game. Not going to say much else for OpSec reasons.  Comment if interested

I am just putting a note out there that we have a retreat location that may be available if things get really bad. The site is totally off grid but does have a spring fed fishing pond as a source of water. We currently live on site and have for many years. In addition, there are a number of fair sized cabins that could be cleaned up and used as housing. But members would be required to bring their own food supplies and equipment. Just something to keep in mind.

Looking to JOIN a small group (not big compounds), or make one with others who are looking currently.  I am in KC, MO area now, and need / want to leave for a rural more sustainable, self-reliant lifestyle for both physical and spiritual reasons.

Me;  53, Registered nurse with experience in Trauma ICU, periop/sedation, college teaching Med-Surg.  ISFJ-A defender personality, genius IQ, extremely calm and better under stress/trauma/assume leadership in these situations.   I’m “battleground proven” based on events in adult life,  for managing long-term fight/flight situations, and for protection of self and others.  But those events dealing with my ex,  also left me with not a lot of capital.  I do have a fair to good amount of preps in all areas, some areas stronger than others.

My single daughters are 20 and 23 (oldest is also RN, Peds, but with adult experience working in nursing school).

Physically healthy and strong for my age, capable of hard labor (although soreness is more than when I was 20s, lol).  Taught self home-keeping skills such as drywall, power tools, tilework, hanging lights/fans, pull/install toilet, etc., so figure I am a quick learn and teachable for more off-grid living skills.

Interests of course, are medical, including learning to use plants/botany, water (having backup sources, clean, storage, etc.), amateur radio (want to learn, bought SSB radios, have access to HAM), hubandry (never done it, but a natural healer, all animals love me), want to learn butchering, aquaponics, wallpini (did I spell that right; earth contact greenhouse for year round growing).

I have a LOT of knowledge of the globalists plan, and can read their symbology and numerology as well (for the most part); knowing the enemy helps be defensive, anticipate how it may affect your life.  My extended family are Christian believers in Missouri, but are not reading the signs of the times, nor seem to understand exactly what a SHTF scenario is going to really be like.  That said, I don’t think I can trust them to respond and/or act appropriately, and definitely not for planning.  So looking elsewhere.

I could free up a little capital for cheap property, especially if going in with a few others.  I figure a group of about 6-8 is more ideal than a huge group.  Can always make MAGs for others things/help.  Considering we are all females (but capable), would want healthy real men in the group.

South Central MO sounds ideal (but east of the Springfield/Branson/Rogers/Bentonville area), or northern AR just below it.  Would also consider west central AR someways south of Rogers/Fayetteville area.  Eastern KS is possible as long as it’s not too close to military bases, as there is water (as in a real spring, not just wet weather; water is always a problem in KS; one side of my family hails from there for generations, so I know).

I am open to join a group, or start one (but quickly, as winter will be  here before you know, as will a further declining economy and I need to unload a mortgage here; hopefully, that will be okay as there are bidding wars in my neck of the woods right now).

thanks!

Seeking Bible believers who walk in love for their brethren to start a small community in southern missouri to come together and buy sizable land to live as a community in the ozarks. Only seeking responsible caring individuals who want to walk in love and gather in these times as a place of living. Must be of the prepared mind set and have some way to contribute to the group. If your ready to pack your bags and start this journey together as a family let me know.

FUNNY I CAN’T SEEM TO EVEN GIVE THIS AWAY!

All I am asking…

From my future partners and community is: A minimum commitment of just two items:

  1. Commit to storing 6 months of long-term food in storage on our ranch for each member of your family or your group. People simply cannot just show up be part pf the team if you have not made this minimum investment.
  2. The desire to have a place to bug out to or retreat to, and be part of a like-minded team, without – the need to actually invest in anything should the times require such actions.

I actually thought that people may actually want a place to bug out or retreat to from the cities if it ever became necessary.

I am not looking for you to move on to my ranch tomorrow and make a permanent home and wait for the worst to arrive. I simply want my ranch to be your insurance policy should the worst ever come to us. I really don’t even need to see you unless it’s necessary to retreat to the ranch. No monthly meetings, no fees, no training!

My concern is: I cannot keep what I have built from those who will no doubt want to take what I’ve built without the support of a motivated team who also has some skin in the game. In my opinion, most people in the city won’t have a chance unless they have a rural, isolated place that is well stocked they can escape to and this is an expensive thing to prepare for. Yet its already built and well stocked. In my opinion there must be people that will view this plan as one where we can help each other.

I work overseas on rotation as a pilot supporting our troops. I invest in the ranch, I work on it when I’m home and I’m doing what I can to attract like-minded people.

In my opinion, the ability to feed your people is key, without food there is no need for people to defend anything, in fact without food it’s time to go looking for food. We have many luxuries here that many groups will never have, and it is a nice place.

As a member of  The Ranch, you can bring your family to camp on the farm for a weekend, use our gym, our golf course, our shooting range and our wood fired pizza oven. Perhaps you may even help out on a building project, or work in our greenhouse or gardens. One of our current projects is restoring an 1865 log building. Its slotted to be our new Bourbon barn. We are also building some wood fired hot tubs. I think it’s important for your family to physically and personally see their retreat so it’s not a fearful of an unknown place should you ever need to come to The Ranch in a bad situation.

There are many things that make The Ranch and our program unique, we are one of the only groups that will be able to maintain “Air superiority” over our neck of the woods. The ability of awareness of your local and, distant surroundings is a good thing.

The Ranch manager is a former marine, if such thing exists, this young man in his late 20’s and very knowledgeable small arms instructor. When I’m working overseas as a pilot, he’s always here to answer questions, conduct a tour and discuss with you who we are. He will also assure you that we will ever ask you to invest in the ranch or give us your money!

I am trying to stress, this isn’t about money, keep your money, we are selling nothing. No spaces in a bunker here like other commercial ventures trying to make a million off peoples fears. We are looking for likeminded members with the means to make a commitment and buy their own food — PERIOD.

The Ranch is about building a team where we all are prepared collectively. We each have an effective insurance policy in place to retreat to should the worst that may happen. The Ranch is your well thought out plan to protect your family without it costing you anything really. I say without costing you anything because I don’t view you buying and storing food for your own family as me asking you for something.

I find it interesting, even those people that are open to the idea of an insurance plan to prepare for the worst will read up on it, will talk about it with their family and friends but – at the end of the day will do nothing about it. Even though the voice in their head is telling them that they should have a backup plan to bug out some where safe would be a good idea in the best interest of their family.

There are so many questions that you may want to ask yourself when the lights go out or worse is, what will I do? where will I go? Should the cities ever lose control, have you done everything in your power to assure the safety of yourself and your family? – I hope you have. I know I am trying to and, I am trying to help others too.

 

READ PLEASE BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME:

I have had many people contact me over the years with an interest in being part of The Ranch. People that have excellent skill sets. But please understand that I cannot feed 50 people on my own regardless of your amazing skill set. If you cannot supply the food required for your family as outlined in this post, I am not interested in hearing from you. Everyone must contribute the minimum.

April 2020 Prepper Ranch Update

Location: An hour north of Louisville & an hour south of Bloomington Indiana. Heart of the Martin State forest

Finally! I’m getting interested and like-minded folks to take my offer seriously. I suppose we all need a wakeup call, some of got it with other events but this even is a real call to action. I have received heaps of inquires so I will attempt to answer most of the questions that I have received in this document. I’ll list the questions I have received and provide the answers as best as I can. Thank you for all of the good questions both posted online and emailed to me.

Q. Food — Must we bring and store our food there on the ranch?
A. Yes. If you do not have food stored on the ranch — enough 25-year shelf life food for each member of your family, then in my opinion it’s not a commitment or an investment.

Q. Who protects or distributes the food?
A. I do not have that answer but it will need to be addressed — suggestions?
This is my biggest concern- Who among us will steal the food or, from outside come and take the food — It is a ranch and not a protected compound- There must be established protocols at other places that we can copy or follow? Remember, most places are charging you a huge fee to get on board — I am not — I am looking for likeminded help, a good deal of guidance as well.

Q. Do I get the food that I bring?
A. Yes- if we agree that we need 3 meals a day, for six months than that will be what you withdraw from the food bank for six months. If an event lasts more than 6 months than its just what we grow. I love veggies but not every meal. And I assure you all of the local deer will be killed off in six months

Q. Will MY FOOD be there — that I stored there be there when I arrive?
A. My initial answer is yes. Again, I have not all of the answers. If we get raided, the food is taken at gun point its out of our control. What I would like to do is bury a 12 foot by 50-foot drainpipe and store the food in this fashion. But its 15K more than I have at the moment. I want to answer you yes but again, I need some guidance here. How do you know your food is safe where it is at the moment? Is it under 24/7-armed security? I want to think that it would be safer here with people on site, but I honestly do not know. Again? Thoughts? suggestions? Excellent question. — And yes, you can eat pizza, and put your AR in your golf bag while playing golf. I do exactly that often. Generally, it’s a .22 though — actually, with some homemade refreshments as well. With five acres of grapes, anything is possible.

Q. I have certain experience that should allow me to not have to store anything on the ranch. i.e. Doctor, Vet, etc.
A. Sorry, we all bring unique experiences to the ranch and if the situation gets really bad, then our food can lure in any person with the experiences we may need at that point in time.

Q. Guns, Ammo what do we need?
A. That’s up to you and highly suggested — We are not a militant group although we have active mil people in the group. If I say here that you need to bring arms, then I’ll just get on a list somewhere as a militant wacko.

Q. What is the ranch normal business?
A. We do family reunions, weddings and corporate retreats. So, when the world is good, our business is good and we have people renting the place almost every weekend. When the world is bad- NOW- we have zero business and all of our rentals have canceled. We are building a microbrew etc. on site.

Q. Can I buy my way in at the last minute? As in right now?
A. That’s a good question. At the moment I do not have the food stores for anyone new. As long as we can still buy food each week at the store then there may be an opportunity. But I am not looking for money, I am not looking to make this a profit center. But I do want to improve what we have and do not yet have.

Q. What Items do you need at the ranch?
A. Now that is a still big list! We are now up to 2 Mil invested in the ranch, so we have most of the basic infrastructure in place. I believe I posted a list of what we have. If I did not, then email me back and I’ll send it out.
1. We need some solar, not a lot but enough to charge our personal devices in the event we lose power. We have 3 generators, but gas won’t last.
2. We could use a new ranger or golf cart to get to get around if working about the property
3. Let’s just say there is plenty that we could use to make the place perfect but I am not going to list it all here and, I’ll eventually buy all that is needed as I am paying as I go — I work still. FOOD is the key

Q. How long can we stay
A. Only as long as needed — this is not a commune until there is a total collapse and then I guess we are a family. I see the ranch as a place you go, hunker down when needed and then return to your life after the “event”

Q. What do we pay while we stay?
A. Buy your own food as long as the stores remain open and share in the elect and propane. We will not dip into the stored food until it is all that is left
A. If we have power then we will all need to pay the elect and propane each month — the more people the higher the bill.

Q. Do I have to work on the ranch?
A. That depends on the situation. If we need help in the grow room, the garden or the green house then we need help. Some people will continue to tele commute a regular job- I suppose they will need to pay more than the person just working in a garden- I really have not figured this out- I do not necessarily need to be the one who makes all of the rules. Collectively we will need to create some form of who does what and when if there is to be order.

Q. What about bugging out to the ranch right now? We meet all of your requirements and requests?
A. This is the best question of all and the most difficult to answer. Who is infected? Are you infected right now and don’t know it? Or, does it matter? The government says that 70 percent of us are going to test positive even if we do not get sick. I ask you — What are your thoughts on this? There are no confirmed cases as of today in our county.

Q. Can I meet your leaders
A. At the moment that would be myself, my youngest son who is an airline pilot, my oldest son is a butcher, an active duty captain in the Army, and a couple other former army folks. I’ll use Leader loosely at the moment as none of these guys have felt the need to arrive yet. Once we have a real group of committed folks then we should meet for a weekend once in a while to improve the plan. No one has shown a real interest until now so no real plan with real people has progressed. It’s just been “I’ll see you when it gets real bad period”

Q. Can I review your security?
A. Ill say- meet our Army Captain and his crew and myself. Anyone with experience and can assist us in creating real security is an asset. I currently work on bases in Africa and Afghanistan I am currently down range at the moment. I am a pilot here- I am not a security expert but my guys have the skills. In fact, and, I am stuck on a base overseas as I write this response. I am due home any day. (if that’s actually possible, I’ll believe it when it happens)

Q. Farm animals?
A. We had Milk goats and it was a daily pain in my butt. When it’s just me taking care of them it’s a chore. If there were people here than its easier to manage livestock and goat cheese is excellent. We do have 80 acres of high 8’ fence and the plan is to get more meat animals moving forward- Again, someone needs to be on site every day and dedicated to caring for these animals.

Q. Moral compass?
A. Regular folks we are I’ll say. Some go to church some don’t. Some drink I do, I like my cigars too. I think any community can be a blend. If you are looking for a strictly Christian community then this is not it. But there is no reason you would not fit in unless that is your specific goal to find such a community. My wife enjoys church and she teaches yoga. We definitely are a fitness community. We have two gyms, a martial arts gym, a huge weight gym with dumbbells up to 120 and we enjoy our fitness. We also shoot clays and our sport guns as a hobby.

Q. What projects are you working on at the ranch?
A. Several projects — I am building a microbrewery, and a winery in the pizza barn. Remember, the ranch needs to continue to create revenues so it can pay its own bills right up and until the SHTF. I am not charging anyone as a bug out location. But If I did, I’d have this project completed already! And at the moment, with the lock down — the ranch has zero rental revenues. We had to refund over 50K in rentals last week due to virus cancels.

Other fun projects when I get back are: A solar herb and vegetable dehydrator, a meat smoker shed, and a wood fired hot tub. There are too many things on the to do list to list- Install gates at the three entrances etc. Buy a smaller plane that we can land on the ranch, we just sold our personal aircraft as it was to big to land on the property.

I hope I have answered everyone’s questions. If not — shoot me another email and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. And thank you for responding to this post. Your questions have helped me realize how both prepared we are here and, that we still have many holes to fill to be safer and to protect our supplies.

If you have ideas, suggestions, please contact me- Plenty of room for improvements and open to such.

Best
Dave

I am getting calls and emails about my ranch over the past week.

Can you take us, we are ready now, where are you located? Will you accept us?

Personally, I am disappointed- I feel like I did not try hard enough to market my place so that I could have reached more people.

This event is exactly why I created my ranch and our program. A safe haven where families store 6 months of food and necessary supplies on my ranch in the event of a crisis. And when the crisis hits- you simply load up the family, your personal stuff and get to the ranch away from the masses. Your food and supplies have already been stored in advance and you have a like minded community to support each other.

Now it’s too late to get to the ranch, you are likely stuck in the cities and have limited supplies. If you do are not limited now, then you may be soon. And, I do not have the supplies and resources alone to cover having the people come now who are requesting that I allow them in now at this late date. I am sorry.

The green house is going strong, the garden is just going in and the freezers are full – And for those who actually took me up on my free offer to prepare with me- well they are in a very save place away from the crowd and the lock downs. in fact, as a farm, we are allowed or categorized “necessary” travel for our people.

There are ZERO cases of the virus in the remote rural county where I am located- That is at this moment as I write this. One thing is certain, we have food, we have wide open spaces and we have – Enough for us who prepared.

As soon as this is over I am making the same exact offer – I am going to ask the same for the people who read this. Simply store six months of 25 year shelf life food on the ranch and if anything like this happens again you will have a safe sanctuary to bring your family.

Of my 18 bedrooms, only 6 people had gotten on board in advance, stored their food and are safely out of the packed and infected cities. No one here is sick yet so they playing golf on our private course, enjoying the shooting ranges, working in the garden, taking care of the chickens, the micro greens grow room or green house, working on line with their regular job just passing the time in the woods and praying to remain healthy.

What a waste of space- 10 more families could have joined us. But few listened to our offer to help.

This virus will pass- people will forget – and one of two things will happen next time.
1. You will have prepared for the next event and made plans for such a situation or,
2. You will be in the same situation next time or perhaps worse off than you are today.

I wish everyone well and I hope to god that people learn from this event. The next one may be many time worse. I am not trying to rub a sore wound here, I am attempting to make you think and encourage you to plan for the future- This may very well only be the start of things to come.

I wish everyone who reads this luck and good health. And please contact me after this terrible event and join up with us for a safer and better prepared future.

Hi there, I posted back in 2017 that i was putting my mother in a nursing home and i was looking for a group to join. Well, She is about to die so i will be ready to move in early spring

I have an idea of what is coming as i have studied Prophecy and Geopolitics for years, 59 Years old now and in relatively good health

God seems to be calling his people to the Ozarks area, Southern Mo and Northern AR Which is where i will hopefully end up, Although Northern Idaho seems to be an option as well

I have the usual collection of survival equipment, Some of which i know how to use and some i don’t, Too busy working.

I saw a response to Ann that said the most important thing in a group is “Trust” I am trustworthy and a Bible believing Christian, A simple man who just wants some peace and quiet. I do have three cats and they are non negotiable, My only family

You can contact me at [email protected] if you have any interest, Thanks and God Bless
