I live right on the border of Mongomery and Bucks County. I am surrounded by 1.4 million people!! When things get bad people get ugly and in this case more does not mean merrier. Don’t get me wrong I like my neighbors, for instance when a blizzard knocked out the towns power for 3 days, I was explaining to my neighbor that I was concerned about my pipes freezing, he was nice enough to reply “the next time that happens you can borrow my (electric)radiator”. I just started prepping for tomorrow. I’m not sure how deep I will go with this but when something does happen I want to be able to take care of my family and not be a burden on the limited resources that will be needed to take care of someone like my neighbor.

I’m just reaching out to see who is in my area that has the same concerns as me, feel free to leave a comment and say hello.

Hi everyone, I’m new to the site and in search of a group in Luzerne County Pennsylvania.

I’m currently looking for a new homestead, Im expanding my preps and looking for like minded people to learn from.

I bring 22 years of military background, carpentry skills, medical training, process food storage, Bush craft and other skill sets. Mind you I’m opened minded and need to learn a lot more.

Perhaps someone out there can help me. Looking forward to meeting you.

Starting prepping, now I’m just gathering items for the potential bad weather that comes our way. Have a generator, water purifier system  ( Katadyn) hand held.

I’m starting to assemble a Go Bag, I already use my EDC when out out. My bag consists of small shovel, ax, basic tools, tarp, plastic ( I use mattress wraps) these are great for sleeping warmth. Many other items that are survival minded.

It is difficult when your wife is not of the same survival thinking, she agrees on prepping , to an extent, she is not a camping person,  Hoilday Inn is her idea of camping.

Any other locals out there who are starting to be prepared, would live to hear from you.

I’m in the Lehigh Valley and looking to join a prepper group. I used to work as and EMT before starting medical school so I have some useful skills to offer. I am working on slowly becoming more prepared for larger disasters and SHTF scenarios and I need to connect with a group of people to fill in the gaps that there are in my current ability to plan.

Not far from NJ, PA, Western CT, MA and VT

 

Yes Virginia, there is a Santa Claus and there are preppers in New York.

We just have to stay under the radar a bit and blend in with our neighbors.

NY is not all NYC, far from it.

We are located both in the NYC metro area (NYC, Long Island, NJ, CT) and in very rural Central NYS adjacent to 5,000,000 acres of the “Forever Wild” Adirondack Park on a 50 acre totally off grid, mountain top modern retreat.

We are well established and well supplied long term preppers looking for talented team members.

Always happy to chat and see where it goes.

You just never know.

About 9 years ago I made a very dear friend/prepping partner right here on this site.

Looking to do it again.

Hi everyone.  I’m hismrsfinnegan and I’m new to the group. I used to be better prepared for emergencies but last year I became very I’ll and almost died and some family members decided to go through my preps and help themselves.

So, here I sit with some food, a little bit of water, some emergency supplies left and an empty 72hour kit.  I need to start over.

I’m also a widow living on a limited income with few friends and family hundreds of miles away.

I want to rebuild my preps as quickly as I can but I feel alone in this task.  There may be some funds next year that can help with food and some supplies but I feel like I need to start NOW.

I am planning on water and working on food storage, tp, basics to start.  My main goal is my 72hour kit.  Warm clothes, will socks, etc…

It’s been many years since I started my prepping and to get home after months in the hospital to find things missing is disheartening, but I can’t give up.  I need to do SOMETHING.

Anyone with any advice, it would be greatly welcomed.  My first goal is to make sure none of my neighbors know of my prepping and only 2 family members can be trusted.   (Not even my kids at tjis point). They live 200 miles away and we are working on fixing up my home in case they can get here when SHTF.

Thanks for letting me join the grouo.  I’m sure I’ll have many questions but I want to share as well.

Hi, I am pretty new to prepping. With the recent threats from the North Korea, I have started a small group. We have started putting away supplies, we have enough right now to feed 5 people for 6 months. We do not have a bunker, but we do have a secret place to go if SHTF. My husband is a mechanic and can fix and weld anything. He also is a handy man, he can build a house from the ground up. I have my bachelors in computer science, a lot of good that will do me if anything does happen but I also have other skills. I am a skilled fighter, I can sew, farm, cook anything from anything. Advanced problem solving skills and I could lead a group effectively. I can think fast and provide solutions that work to keep people alive. I have back up plans to my back up plans. Literally, printed out.

Looking for honest, hardworking people. People that will work together under extreme stress and not turn on each other. People that are loyal, who look to work forward, not backward.  I would like to start a new group so that we may learn and grow/prepare together. Interested, email me @[email protected]

Hello everyone, I am a 28-year-old female living in Pennsylvania looking for a group to join. Someone with like-minded people that don’t put people down but build each other up. We are in this to thrive not be divided by greed and or jealousy.

There is a lot for me to learn I am still new but I am taking up the trade of tanning and butchering  I also know how to sew so I’m going to be working on making products from the tandem skins.

If anyone has a group that is willing to except another person and help them learn or you wish to start a group or community feel free to emailed me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com

Hello everyone my name is Dida

I am a newly surfaced proper I have always known the world was going to go to shit and have always wanted to prepare for it but I never knew prepping was such a thing until I discovered it on TV and then online. Right now I am doing it by myself and slowly because my family doesn’t want anything to do with it they feel it is childish and a waste of money and/or time.

So what I am looking for is I would like to find like-minded people to mentor me and guide me in this rough world. Eventually I would like to create a community in which we all support each other and thrive and survive in the world to come.

My skills are as followed

-I can fish and build a tent and fire from scratch

– I am good at first aid hopefully learning how to do sutures soon

– becoming better at identifying plants and using them medically.

I was in a prepper group a while ago but I had left due to the fact that a lot of the people there we’re putting others down for the lack of knowledge and kind of making them feel stupid. As well as making fun of me because of an illness I have which is cancer so that set me off the deep end and I left without questions asked. I want to find someone or people that don’t judge others for illnesses they have how they look or what they do or don’t know we are all in this together when shit hits the fan and we only to survive and learn together so that’s the kind of people I wish to be around

If you think you can help me in any way feel free to email me at didakingston @ yahoo dot com hope to talk to you soon

 

Admin Edit: Email the advice, or leave a contact (email as a contact was given above). To share specific tips and suggestions, please use the associated prepper forum, not the main site. Thanks!

Anyone near us in a prepper group?  We have a lot of time on our hands (retired) and want to step up our preps again.  We’re interested in having contacts we can trust during a SHTF scenario.  We hope we never need it, but it would be great to feel we had help during such a time.

Thanks for reading this. Hope we can meet up.

We are looking to connect, correspond, encourage, and be encouraged by any Christian Preppers in any of the New England states (Vermont, New Hampshire, Maine, Massachusetts, Connecticut, and Rhode Island) and New York State.  We currently live in Massachusetts, but would like to relocate to a more rural area, possibly in one of these states (particularly VT, NH, Maine, or upstate NY). We would love to find friends who are both Christian and Preppers. It seems difficult to find both. We believe we should become self-reliant and move away from the cities, whether we are in the “end times” or not. As we see things becoming more restrictive, crazy, and society breaking down, we feel lead to simplify our lives and adopt a self-reliant lifestyle. While we believe the signs of the times certainly point to this being the last days, we do not want to be absolutely presumptuous at this time. However, we still see the great need to prepare in all areas of our lives, as things continue to deteriorate spiritually, economically, socially, morally, and physically. We often truly feel alone (my wife and I), so it would be great to hear from others of similar beliefs, even if you are from some other part of the country. As Christians, we believe the Holy Bible — we believe it all and love it all. We seek to be true followers of Jesus Christ. We do not belong to a particular denomination at this time, but we are essentially fundamental in doctrine. We are not dispensationalist, but we are fine if you are, as long as you believe in prepping as well. Thank you for taking the time to read our post. It would be great to hear from someone!

In Christ,

Dale and Julie

Hello, my name is Matthew and I am a beginning prepper and would like to fond some other people who are interested in becoming preppers or are long time preppers who are willing to share their knowledge. I would like to form a group that can grow off of one another and work together as one. I would also like for someday for us to become completely off grid and work as one big family. A little bit about myself: I was in the navy for 3 years as a corpsman (medic) I currently work in the medical field and I have training in Firefighting and emergency services. I have a fiance and we live in North East, PA. If you have any questions please comment and I will get back to you ASAP. Hope to hear from you soon.

I am from Pittsburgh, PA. Are there books to help? I really do not know where to begin.

I was looking a storage containers, which led to other questions, how long is water and food safe in these containers? etc.

Hello everyone I am from a small village named Benton, I grew up on a working farm.  I served in the US Army Corp of Engineers with two combat deployments.  I am a former Sherriff’s deputy in Columbia county.  I am an electrician by trade and my military occupational specialty.  I owned a successful fitness center and general contracting company for twelve years.  I am seeking other prepper’s of various degrees of competency, abilities, etc…as I’ve only been prepping for a little over a year.  I am a very detail oriented person, with above average communication skills.  If you are in the geographical area’s in the heading (especially if you own land already) I would ask that you email me so that we may network and potentially create a self-sustaining community to begin again with the rebuilding of community and state after a S.H.T.F. incident.  Thanks for your time and consideration!  84thEngineers at gmail dot com.
