Hi, I am in the North Bay area, just north of San Francisco, hoping to join a group soon for me and my dog. I’m a 30 year old female, have lots to offer, have been in survival situations in the snow, I am a car prepper, meaning I could survive out of my car for a long time if need be, but feel that it is beginning to be time to find a group and an actual location. Please let me know if anyone established or starting is looking for new members in California or I’m open to Nevada as well, because the masses will head to the desert lastly after slowly leaving cities and venturing outward in search of food and water.

We are a little 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, wild turkeys, coyotes, cougar?) We are wilderness-based, not city, town, or farm-based.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, 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 and permanent 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, 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.

Excellent 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 reliable transportation.

This Sanctuary is not a residential situation for most members during normal times, but a retreat location where we gather about 6 weekends a year to explore, work, learn, and play. We also stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when “something” happens. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We only consider youth who are capable of completely grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age of about 8), and we would look at the youth’s qualities and motivations, just as we would with an adult.

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion, and we will keep all communications confidential: zimindrixli [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, July 15, 2017 at COB Cottage Company, 94006 Ginger, Coquille, OR 97423.

We will be learning how to build with COB. The word cob comes from an old English root meaning a lump or rounded mass. Cob building uses hands and feet to form lumps of earth mixed with sand and straw, a sensory and aesthetic experience similar to sculpting with clay. You will get dirty so wear appropriate clothing.

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

Hello

We have a great deal of practice at being part of the group, we have lived with 4  preper groups 2 groups for just over a year each, one group for two years and a long term for 6 years.

We left on good terms with each and that is no small undertaking.Their is no perfect family and no perfect group.We have been witness to some of the most interesting group dynamics.Family,marriage,groups each is a commitment day by day a decision that this is what i will work at and this is were i wish to be.     We have never been kicked out or asked to leave any group. We have worked very hard with others to build their infrastructure log cabins,crops,wells,solar power even under ground storm shelters ”bunkers”

What we want

A serious and real group of for the most part like minded  people who wish to learn from one and other teach one and other, train together  of course with in reason  for what could be very interesting and trying times ahead or what do we prep for?    We wish to join an established group who want to add to their security, their workforce and their skill sets .We would prefer the Pacific  Northwest area as this is our stomping grounds,But for the right group of people and right place we could be open.

Some of what i watch for and study and prep for.      our Economy /debt/the fed/I.M.F those are all good right?, Natural disaster/national natural disaster,False flags,cyber attack/true or false flag,/E.M.P,/WAR/world war Nope no chance of that right?N.a.t.o,/U.N     WOW this list could pretty big so that will do. And these are among the most reasonable,rational and logical in the prep world.

What we bring to the table,

2 very able body males over 10 years off grid living experience.Husbandry Goats,chickens,rabbits,horses.growing food /vegetables in many different states /environments.Rustic log cabin building,some carpentry skills, off grid tools.First aid and C.P.R as well as advanced field medic training .Disclaimer lived with army medic 5 years navy medic 1 year trained with both i am not a doctor.

Supplies/security/and other skills  4×4 pickup/work truck ,over a years food stock for a group of 4,A good stock of survival gear, top class A/R’s scoped green laser with flashlight and strobe with sidearms  and a modest arsenal hunting weapons/ammo.bush craft and survival skills at instructor levels

If you are looking for people you can count on we are your guys we even come with references from other group members we have lived with long term to learn more contact us here or at our e mail bellatorcantor [at] protonmail [dot] com

The main topic is “Are You Better Prepared?”. SWOP will celebrate its 5 year anniversary next month. It is time to take inventory and determine if we are better prepared than we were 5 years ago. We will review the areas of preparedness and see how we stack up. We will also make plans to be even better prepared in the future.

Looking to meet up and develop community with like minded preppers. Share ideas, thoughts and even cross train. I just spent a month off the grid at a bugout location alone (yes in the snow). I have a lot of thoughts as I’m sure we all do , and we need to put those ideas to the test. I put it all into action and found some weakness’s  in my plan and also found it to be an excellent learning opportunity.

Folks I am an aging writer and retired law enforcement professional.
I have twenty+ acres in an ideal location for a family or group to establish themselves and await the lean times. I don’t declare the imminent apocalypse, it is certainly one of the possible outcomes of a very uncertain future.
I presume most of you have reached the conclusion that total isolation holds too much danger of total destruction and that an enclave of many without access to other wise unavailable services is also unworkable. I thought those through and decided on a place with long distances to even small communities with the exception of a very small population of people with interests that will mesh those of other locals when it falls apart. ( I dislike the acronym SHTF.)
I located my home after retirement in a community of less than 400 people with the closest community of several thousand 48 miles away by a paved road and in the other direction that larger small city of several thousand is 58 miles from my corner post.
Neither town is likely to generate nomads in my direction since there are larger cities closer to either of those distant towns.
Any other roads are through National Forest service roads and terminate in easily controlled intersections. The whole little town is thus, through isolation, a bunker.
The property is presently fit for living as it contains a 2006 manufactured double wide home 27 X 44 with two baths-one master, and three bedrooms, septic (1500 gallon),and outbuildings of nominal size (one grouted and filled with reinforced rebar and high strength concrete.
I have the plans for other agricultural buildings (barn etc.) that are permitted for building by the county as long as they are agricultural in nature.
There is a plot plan for sunken green houses as the cold is unpredictable and the sunken green house allows early starts. The plans also call for a six foot depth with an elevated back wall of ten feet, covered by thicker than normal Mylar over Styrofoam insulation fronted by large diameter plastic pipe that will terminate underground to collect hot water the green houses will be covered by plastic sheeting that will need to be replaced every three to five years.
The green houses are to be located along the 1900 feet of southern exposure.
Small animal housing to be located North of the greenhouses and all southern facing roof tops to be optimized for placement of solar panels. I sit on a ridge just above a river bottom and a windmill can easily be raised above the surrounding tree line in all directions. ( The small low range gen sets like those used by boaters to keep batteries are not worth the money spent to acquire them.).
I am told by one of the workers of the contractor to dig the foundations for first, the foundation for a primary dorm and kitchen with hidden access. ( guess where?) More later contact me at Crazyhorse, PO BOX 132 BLY OR 97622
There are several similar parcels I can option if wanted.

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

Hello everyone,

I am a 22 year old male who currently resides in Portland.

I have come to realize how truly dangerous this city is and I don’t to be here when some cataclysmic event occurs in the probable near future. We’re at the brink of an all out war with China/Russia, our economy is on the cusp of a collapse and the media seems to have brainwashed the masses into thinking everything if OK.

Going off grid seems like the only likely scenario at this point that could work. Property seems pretty cheap in parts of Oregon and Washington. Ideally, I would like to find 5-10 like minded preppers and attempt to purchase some land and prepare for what is to come.I also am open to joining a group or am open to any ideas that you might have, but that is the general direction I’m heading towards.

I don’t have any special skills, but I am physically capable and most importantly, spiritually and mentally prepared. I am a believer in God and my faith is very important to me. It is a requirement that you are a believer in God as well. I have guns and ammunition for myself as well as some basic survival tools, but I am obviously far from prepared.To be upfront, I will have approximately $5k-10k  to put towards this property. If I can find enough people, it could be a lot less! I would imagine it’s going to get easier and easier to find deals on land as well. I have found a few myself that seem very undervalued.

Please reply if you’re interested! I promise I’ll respond back. Things are getting worse and worse each day around the world and it’s only a matter of time before something happens here. I’m looking to relocate ASAP, but realistically I’d need about 1-2 months to prepare everything and get my funds in order. I would like to be completely off grid by election time, if this Country makes it that far…

Grey is good. Getting “noticed” by the authorities is bad.  These simple precepts are the basis for our approach to prepping.

Sustainability is good. What are you gonna eat when the freeze dried food runs out?  You better have the land and the skills to raise your own food.

Being a helpful neighbor is good.  A volunteer firefighter or medic is someone people are happy to see show up.

Rural is good. Having responded to many disaster areas, the rural folks always seem to fare better than those trapped in the cities.

Now to the heart of the matter. There are many preppers I have met that I would not like to share lunch with much less WROL.  From the habitual criminal to the paranoid delusional I have met them all.  I know that there have to be a few individuals out there that are concerned about possibilities, that understand that complex systems can fall apart, and want to take rational action with rational people.  Give us a try.

As a member of a disaster response team  I see every year how woefully unprepared most Americans are for anything but life as usual.  We believe that any number of events can stress the system to the breaking point and that it is up to us, not the government, to personally prepare.

We are looking for individuals who would be interested in sharing skills with the goal of forming a mutual assistance group. We are quiet people who live a rural and self reliant life.  Haters, conspiracy freaks and militia types, please don’t waste our or your time.

Chatting on line, then by phone with the eventual goal of a face to face meeting on neutral ground is our usual approach to meeting like minded folks. Once to that point, we will do a background check as a security measure. Just being up front about it as some folks tend to forget about the time they spent in prison or that the IRS is looking for them. Hope to hear from a few good “grey” men and women.

Hello, Just wanted to pass along to folks a quick note about the Oregon Training Group.  I took the plunge and joined the website and started to attend FTX (field training’s) last summer, after three FTX’s I was voted in by the membership.

Trainings occur every third Saturday of the month, usually in the Linn county area as it seems to be centrally located;. while their are members from across the state, most of the active members are spread around the Willamette valley.  There are 3 elected positions and a well thought constitution. The group has been around for more than 3 years now.  There are no dues or specific equipment requirements. Most training’s last 4-6 hours although i have been on 2 overnighters. I would encourage folks with an interest to stop by and join the site and look over the forum section to get a feel for the group. If you have specific questions feel free to PM me here or there.

UPDATE February 14, 2016

Update, Oregon Training Group is still around after almost another 2 years. I am now Chairman for the group. We continue to offer classes and opportunities to network with other like minded folks primarily in the Willamette Valley.
I want to state unequivocally though that we are not a militia, folks occasionally find us and we are happy to recommend groups that we know are active, it isn’t this group though.
We have our schedule for the rest of the year set up, i am also offering bonus classes when i can, usually in conjunction with the Salem Area Preparedness Group’s activities another group with which i remain active.
Aside from class materials there is no charge for classes. nor do we collect dues, have equipment requirements etc. Folks can find out more at

Hello, Im a 24 year old heterosexual male, located in Fresno CA. Im Fairly Familiar with prep, i have knowledge of a little bit of everything from basic camp skills to growing to natural medicine as well as distilling. Notice I said “a little bit”.ha and a wide range of other skills traits and qualities. and continue my education on such things. I am also good with my hands.

I am looking for like minded individuals who are ready to answer their calling with me. The times we live in are changing drastically, governments on the verge of collapsing as well as them shaping a world to their likeing. I believe god has been giving me knowledge and preparing for this for a long time. my hopes are to create a homestead as well as a self-sustaining lifestyle for fellow brothers in Christ as well as honest people with the same calling. To not only make friends but family and migrate existing family if desired.

Of course, within years to come. of. it will be tough in the beginning but within years time we can achieve a place that god can approve of in a failing world. My faith is in Jesus Christ. I believe that the world is changing drastically and he is choosing those to walk in his footsteps. I want to help prepare his place for his people when the time is ready.

But lets not get so far ahead of ourselves.lol I know ive wrote much but its my first one to let you know about myself. 🙂 although there is so much to talk about if youd like to comment and suggest all your ideas and info if you would like to join or exchange information. please no trolling…. but on to more facts… 🙂

I stay in Fresno, CA but have motives to go nor-east around Oakhurst/mariposa/Yosemite area. With possiblites of going to higher elevations during the warmer seasons. I have a native friend(good friend from my hometown) with extensive knowledge as well(more than me) who will possibly join me on the journey. We do not judge or discriminate. Though we would prefer those with similar beliefs and honest humble characters. thats all for now.. I will keep an update. thank you. stay safe and God Bless.

Only serious, and well prepared individuals or families need reply. Looking forward to hearing back from you to discuss the finer details off line.

God Bless America
