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]

Openings at Survival Sanctuary near Mt. St. Helens, SW Washington/NW Oregon

We are a little private Sanctuary in the foothills of Mt. St. Helens, east of Kelso, WA. House at 300′ elevation, 5 forested acres (alder, maple, cedar, fir, blackberries), directly adjacent to millions of acres of uninhabited forest land where we can freely roam (deer, elk, coyote, cougar) We are edge-of-the-wilderness based, not city, town, or farm-based, although we grow a large garden.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, (actual) disease plague (by self-isolation), climate disruption (although our weakness is forest fire), and general financial/commercial/political collapse (by self-sufficiency). We are also in fairly good shape for most Black Swans (earthquake, etc.) The Sanctuary is prepared to make the transition to complete self-sufficiency if necessary (gardening, hunting, fishing, herbal medicine).

Current members include a mental-health therapist, a mechanical engineer, a medical pathology assistant, and a plant nursery worker. We have many other skills among us.

In new people, we are more interested in maturity and good values than any certain skills, but you must be fairly well educated (for your age), open to learning, and willing to teach what you know. Emotional stability, intelligence, patience, respect, cooperation, and intuition are highly valued. We are NOT interested in control freaks, politicians, chatter boxes, or the judgmental, impulsive, lazy, or defensive.

Good health and mobility, and strong immune systems, are necessary. No drug dependencies (including recreational), significant food allergies, or claustrophobia. Politics and religion must be kept strictly personal. No costs (other than your own gear), but you must have transportation to get here (unless very close).

The Sanctuary may or may not be a residential situation for new members during normal times. For some members, it is a retreat location where we gather to explore, work, learn, and play. All members stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when necessary. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We would only consider youth who are capable of grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age about 8).

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion. At all times we operate completely in “family” mode, never in “landlord-tenant” mode. We will keep all communications confidential. Write to zimindrixli at the mail service that is a cheer of success or discovery.

I’m testing to see if there’s any interest in starting a group of emergency preparedness-minded folks around Corvallis, Albany, and Lebanon, Oregon.

The group would be family-friendly, with an eye toward mutual assistance (MAG), training (defense, gardening, alternative power, bush craft, homesteading, etc.). Meet-ups would be at least once a month at someplace local, and training would be done informally by members of the group.

Hi, I am Christian and interested in getting out of the hustle and bustle of the masked charade we are calling life these days.

I have seeds, primitive skills videos I would like to transfer to a notebook and test for real in the woods. I have gear for extended trips into the woods.

I have about 30 Lifestraws. I have some money, a car, a hammock, a slingshot. I don’t have anything that doesn’t fit in my car.

I don’t have pets or kids or a significant other. I am heterosexual and believe the King James is the Word of God and believe everything in it literally.

I do not believe in Covid-19. I think the vaccine is the mark of the beast and will refuse it even if they put me in a camp and chop my head off……even if it means starving to death in the street.

I can teach the Bible and how to see the wiles of the devil everywhere in Hollywood and all aspects of our lives. I have been studying the satanic illuminati and the Bible for 12 years since I got saved.

I am looking for a group that is focused on the Bible and SHTF survival excluding weaponry unless it pertains to hunting with a bow or a slingshot. You won’t be winning any battles against the beast and it’s armies.

Protecting your family from thieves and gangs is one thing but war is another. My policy is ‘just say no’. I expect to be put in a camp. You won’t be able to pay taxes on your land if you reject the vaccine/mark, let alone go to the store or buy gas.

Time to stock up on food and water, etc. You will only have the amount of time it takes for them to kick you off your land for not paying those taxes.

Once the vaccine is implemented by our military it will be compulsory and we will just have to have what we need. I can contribute. All I ask is for a seat at the table. YHVH bless you all in these hard times. -Simon

Hi All, I have 40 beautiful acres in the coastal mountains, located in a secluded valley with pasture and fertile soil halfway between Eugene, OR and the coast . My plan is to prepare by growing food, raise animals, stock up on supplies, have backup electricity/solar, potable water, proper firearms, etc… if the economy should tank. I need someone to help me if you have similar concerns and want to work with me in the preparations. No charge for the trailer or RV spot if your as hard working as I am too get stuff done and on the same page. If your looking to get out of the city and like being more secluded and safe this would be a good situation for you. I have fruit trees, planted grapes, blueberries, blackberries too of course, a 2000 sq ft garden spot, 2 goats in the barn and its too much for just one person to do all the tasks and prepping too. Looking for sane, intelligent, reliable person, that we can agree on a plan ahead of time, so good communication and respectfulness is vital for this too work. You should have a source of reliable income, someone retired or on disability would be ideal because its about an hour (45 miles) to get into town and windy road, so not the best situation for commuting back and forth to Eugene, OR though not too bad if you work part time. Contact me first by email and then we can exchange numbers. You can reach me at brik4166 at hotmail. I’m not worried about getting COVID-19 from anyone, I had it in May for 3 weeks, now fully recovered, and as strong as ever. The immunity should last a year or two, so they say.

The trailer spot is within 100 feet of the house so should have good Wifi. The electricity is only 15 to 20 amps, no 30 available. If you use a lot of electricity for heating, etc… then you could help pitch in a little for that. Good well water too. I like it quiet out here as most do, don’t want to hear other peoples music or TV. No drama either. There are good, helpful, friendly neighbors around here too. Not into crazy, senseless conspiracy theories or a big Trump or Biden supporter either. This is mainly for someone who agrees that the economy is pretty darn unstable with massive debt, huge Wall Street bubbles, trade deficits, people not making enough income, and we all need to be ready for the worst, but hope it doesn’t happen.

Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.
