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.

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.

The Sanctuary may or may not be a residential situation for the new members during normal times. For some members, it is a retreat location where we gather about monthly to explore, work, learn, and play. All members 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.

Just an update for the Oregon page;

A little about us;

The purpose of OTG is to develop the skills, mindset, and tactics required to protect ourselves, our families, and our communities is an emergency situation.

We also try to take the opportunity to make the most out of our time together when we are training, attending classes, and meetings as opportunities to build upon other skills; skills like first aid, communications, bush craft and camp cooking

What’s involved to join? In a word participation. Aside from the cost of your travel to and from event and whatever equipment you decide to buy we have no dues, or class fees. There are no minimum equipment requirements. if there is a cost associated with an event like a camp site fee it will be noted well ahead of time. Loaner equipment is often available. Unless noted OTG is a family friendly environment. Kids are welcome. Classes occur at least once a month, usually on or around the 3rd Saturday, and most often take place in Linn. Marion, Polk, Benton and Lane Counties, classes usually last from 2-6 hours depending on content. As often as possible we do overnight camping trips usually locally.

What we are; a small diverse group of folks sharing and developing critical survival and preparedness skills in a supported team environment.
We are not a militia or political group. We will not condone, encourage or support illegal activity. This includes, but is not limited to a “call to arms”, treasonous activity or overthrow of our elected officials by force of arms. Racism in any form will not be tolerated. Nor are we a forum for political discussions. ​

Being in a very liberal state (Oregon) have found it very difficult to find like minded conservatives for preparing for survival while serving the Lord Jesus. Liberals are becoming increasingly hateful and intolerant to anyone Christian or conservative. I’ve put up local ads and 99% of the responses are from people who smoke pot or are unreliable in some way and many of the people I have come across seem to be very liberal minded and hostile to Christians.

I have a good chunk of some pasture and wooded land in the coastal mountains forest and hope to find someone who has an RV or trailer and would like to find a rent free, off grid spot to setup on. It has good fertile land, a 2000 sq ft garden spot, goats, a barn, a chicken coop, two year round creeks with mountain spring water. The area is abundant with elk, deer salmon, and other wildlife.  Please pray that the Lord would send a person or family who loves Jesus and are ethical, honest, and reliable. I moved out here about 4 years ago to escape the partying and noise in the local city, but now feel very isolated and all alone, just wondering what the Lord would have me do. I have to think there are others out there wanting to escape Babylon. I read so much, even on here, about the $20 trillion debt and likelihood of some economic collapse getting closer every day. Its hard to take care of my farm all on my own and be able to prep at the same time. If I had some help from good people who need a safe place it would be such a blessing. Thanks All!

Hi,

I’m looking for a MAG for my family to join. I am an infantry officer with scout and competitive shooting qualifications, my dad and brother are board certified doctors, my mom is a retired nurse, my sister is in school for clinical psychology, and my long time girlfriend is a teacher. We are all christian. My brother and I are licensed ham operators and I hunt and fish.  We are spread between Oregon, California, Texas, and Florida so I am open to groups from any area. I am primarily looking for a place for us to go if there is a large scale disaster. I can send more detailed lists of qualifications and levels of preparedness if requested. In addition, please message me for availability to assist in preparing the site. I look forward to hearing from and working with you and your group.

Me and my party have been considering a move northward. Washington seems very appealing to us, with the low population rates over most the states. Tons of virgin forest, great game in area, salmon.. A good place to go off-grid before the crap goes down. Looking to talk a little bit about the lands there, help us decide if it is the place for us. solely basic info.

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.

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.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.

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 [email protected]

​Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, April 29, 2017 at the Seven Fires Foundation, 89001 Hwy 42 South, Bandon, OR 97411 just 1.8 miles east of Bandon on 42S.

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

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

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.
