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!
We would like to meet other preppers in the NE MO area. The biggest nearby town is Hannibal MO. Quincy area folks are also very welcome.
Our goals are to share knowledge and get to know others for mutual assistance if the need should arise.
Our main skill sets are: We are good shots and practice fairly often, animal training, sewing, solar cooking, navigation, weather forecasting, some gardening, some medical, and various other things that we have dabbled in. Always adding to our skill sets.
Any takers? PM me!

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.

My wife and I are looking for other like minded (preppers) like us near the Branson Missouri 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.
email us at:
prepper (at) tutanota (dot) com

If interested in being part of a Mutual Assistance Group in the SW MO area, contact mo[dot]woods55[at]gmail[dot]com. Thanks.
Currently living in Virginia, near coast. Am planning a trip to MO in March for about a week, and would like to know what areas to focus on with possible good, established prep communities to make the most of my time out there.
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.
A Caucasian conservative Christian couple in the mid forties seeking to network with other like minded couples or groups who have an interest in prepping, homesteading and other self sufficient lifestyles. We are both former military, educated, secure and raised in very rural areas of Southern Illinois and Southeast Missouri. We are not interested in militia groups, radicals or anti government types. We are open to networking, joining a like minded group or even creating a group with others. Contact us if you are on the same page. God Bless!
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.
Reach me at wthms [at] mail [dot] com or PM me at this site. Thanks.
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.
We are a new small group of like-minded preppers that have land, water access, trained in medical, off grid survival, holistic medicine, basically all things necessary to thrive, not just survive. We are Hebrew followers of Torah, we home school, teach and share in building this community to take us through what is about to occur. If you are interested in joining us, please respond to crzy4Jesus at gmail.com and we will line up what exciting plans we are making to prepare us together. United we stand, divided we fall.
I am seeking like minded people to get in touch with near or around the Branson Missouri area. As, I will be transitioning near that area within the next couple of months from Indianapolis. I am a born again Holy Spirit filled Woman of God who is fully aware of the times we are in. I am being led most assuredly in that area. I am willing to learn new things in regards to survival, as I am an able body. I appreciate your time in advance. Thank you.
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 PG and wanted to know if there are any members near St. Louis, MO.
My name is Scott, I live outside of New Orleans and have been trying to relocate to the Ozarks for the past few months. I turned 37 yesterday and it’s just me and my dog (border-collie) I am a professional chef/cook/baker and on my time off I do research and development on alternative energy and resources. Born again and baptized four years ago and have been awake and preparing ever sense. I am completely self sufficient and am absolutely not looking for someone to take care of me, but become part of a team/family. My current location is unacceptable and makes my preparations nearly worthless, I know what is coming. Just looking for like minded individuals to reach out to in these troubling times. scottchristianfaith(at)gmail*dot-com_
Thank you for your time,
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.
I have truck and a travel trailer that will be home for as long as I need it to be. I’m looking for a prepper community homestead.
Who am I and why would I make a good community member?
I am a 40s Female (divorced) with a 16 year old daughter who is home-schooled and a smart, straight A student. I’ve been a single mother since she was born. I’m resourceful and hard-working and have always supported us without help from family or the father. I’m mentally strong and intelligent person with excellent critical thinking abilities and can handle emergencies and stress like a veteran EMT tech. Other benefits:
- I work from home – so I can keep my revenue source going wherever I live, until the financial system crashes.
- I’m self-sufficient and can provide for my daughter and myself.
- I have food, water filters, basic necessities, and protection (I am security minded).
- I carry my own tools
- Skilled in the following areas:
- General carpentry and home remodeling
- Large equipment operator
- Handy with all power tools
- Ride both a motorcycle/4 wheeler
- Great fisherman
- Back-packing experience
- Hair cutting
- Raised on a farm
What I am Looking for: people that are spiritual minded, not religiously fanatic. Gun/protection minded, not Militant. Established community with off-grid resources.
Family looking for a small community of honest folks who look forward to surviving whats ahead. allready prepped for a while. got a series of skills sewing, farm work, living off grid, medical, teaching, growing our own garden. etc.. questions.. please ask.. and please no hateful comments… thanks.. shell
are there any religious prepper sites? been searching for religious organizations that may have prepper communities —-am christian, catholic rite (not following the pope) tho; looking in arkansas or missouri area and hadn’t run across anything. am willing to look at other area.
FYI: contacted a few morman groups who said , sadly, even a lot of morman’s aren’t prepping —wow guess lost their way; and,there seems to be a lot of catholics churches in utah, but alas no preppers—anyway thought I would ask around
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.
My wife and I will be moving to West Plains Mo by the end of this year, we have lived in Columbia Mo for 5 years and have started a community of people like us. but now with this move we are looking for other in south Missouri that are like minded. We have been semi self- reliant for 5 years and have a lot of skill but still willing to learn new stuff.
Hello everyone, I’m finally back after some major set backs broke truck and computer crash. I’m sorry for the time away, I’m still very interested please read my past post (http://www.preppergroups.com/wanting-to-join-a-group-in-missourikytnncwestvirgina/) and I will respond ASAP to all. Thank you for your time, Phillip P.S. I have a new phone number so ask for new number again thank you, Phillip
20 Acres in Missouri. Between Lake of the Ozarks and Springfield, MO. I need to be the one to furnish the housing. However it is a work exchange for housing as a permanent place to live. Restrictions apply. Grow a garden for some of your food and can it. Electricity generated. I don’t charge rent but I don’t support you either. Like minded. No opposites. I do not have a commercial business. You will not be working for me. The work exchange is to care for the place and it will be your home to make the community function. If you are wanting to live on a place you do not own you can go to the link below. The land and buildings will not be sold nor the equipment or anything else. If you go to the website please read it before calling or emailing. For like minded only. No opposites.
Thanks for reading my post.
240 Acre Homestead
Ponds, creeks, caves, pastures, forest – isolated – 30 minutes from nearby city.
Have 60 acres of pasture, and 180 of forest.
Will be building green-houses, edible forest garden, etc.
Have goats, chickens, ducks, and will be getting cows in the future.
Looking for like-minded preppers to join our community.
Apartments for rent on site – brand new – on grid – but will be prepped for off-grid living in future – solar array and rain catchment.
Locations on site for trailers or RVs and hook ups.
Rent will be paid until government collapses at which time we will not worry about trivial things such as money. 🙂
Looking for people to move on site that have the time and interest in preparing for the future – putting in perennial gardens, working with livestock, building ponds and rain catchment systems etc.
Looking for people that not only want a place to live out the apocalypse, but people that want to become a part of a community – a part of a family.
Sounds like a good fit for you? Email me at genpurematt at gmail dot com or call three16.9nine3.60zero2
