Spring has sprung in the southeast Missouri Ozarks!   If you have been considering relocating then now is the time.

We want to build a small village here, on this 40 acres.   You can lease property here to build on.   To get to the meat of the matter………..

You —-

• Are preparing not out of fear, but from a determination created by knowledge.

• Want to live in a geographically stable area where winters are not extreme.

• Want to live off the beaten path where your place can’t be seen from any county road.

• Want to build your own sustainable house, and lifestyle.

• Want to live a permaculture lifestyle where as much as possible is used, repurposed, and recycled, with creating as much symbiotic relationships between animals and plants as possible.

• Want to live around others with similar interests where you can talk about a preparing lifestyle freely.

• Are already preparing the best you can.

• Have skills which not only benefit you and yours but others.

• Have your own camper to live in while building.

• Are financially stable enough to live in the boonies where jobs are scarce, but that doesn’t matter because you want to spend your time building a self-sustaining life.

No-No’s —– Anger Issues, Alcoholic, Drugs without a prescription, Sticky Fingers, Entitlement Issues, Lieing, Mooching, Control Issues, Cowards.

Must Have’s —– At Least Some Skill Set(s) Related to…. Animal Husbandry, Carpentry, Construction, Defense, Electricity, Gardening, Hunting, Mechanics, Medicine, Water Management.

There Will Be —–

• A 1 Acre Builder’s Lot to build and live on, to be leased for $200 per month, as long as there is a centralized currency system.    Then after SHTF there is no lease fee.

• No outside electricity allowed in.   You must provide your own generator for building to use power tools.   All houses will be built as off-grid. Solar is OK.

• Only rocket mass stoves are allowed for heating.   No regular wood heating stoves as they use four times the wood of rocket mass heaters.   Regular wood heating stoves would use too much of our resources.   Wood cook stoves and rocket cook stoves OK.

• An alternative septic system, self-built on your acre.    An alternative is a self-built, home-sized biogas plant.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, March 17, 2018 at the Langlois Library, 48234 US-101, Langlois, OR 97450.
The main topic is “DISASTER SURVIVAL PLANNING WORKSHOPS FOR FAMILIES”. This year SWOP will be conducting workshops during the meetings. Bring your plan to the workshop. If you do not have a plan to bring that is OK, you will have one to take home when you leave. Bring paper and pencil. Attend this workshop to help your family, whether large or small, survive a disaster.
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

I am interested in finding a Christian Prepper group preferably living in a self-sustained community.  I live in Iowa but I would be more than willing to relocate to join a group.  I am an Air Force veteran with mechanical skills.  I have been working as a Software Engineer for the past 20 years and have experience in networking.

I am also have experience working on a farm and have done some construction work.

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.

S/E Oklahoma seeking individual, couple or very small group

What I’m all about:

I’m 45 years old this year(wow) pass for and can outwork most 25 year olds, and live off-grid in much the same fashion I would if TSHTF. If the end of the world occurred tomorrow, I wouldn’t likely even know about it until I realized planes weren’t flying overhead anymore. I’ve been doing this in earnest now for about a decade, though the adventure started for me in the late 90’s.

While always under some form of construction/expansion, things are well enough in shape to survive virtually any eventuality- though it’s always in a state of chaos around here in my opinion, nothing is ever quite ‘finished’ and I’m always behind. I don’t really anticipate a calamity that can be marked and commemorated on some future calendar, instead I feel the continued decay of ethics, morality and dependencies/ entitlements have already put us square in the definition of living post-apocalypse. And all it’a likely to do from here is continue to degrade. I am not a ‘gun nut’ praying for something terrible to happen so I can live out my fantasies based on being ‘done wrong’ by the world. Unfortunately, too many of our ranks seem to lean that direction.

My life is without dependency on the outside world, economy, medical care, etc… I train pack/ draft animals, raise food, devise methods to contend with my needs based on what’s onhand, etc…

It’s very rural here, off the beaten track, but not so far from ‘town’ or resources to have to worry about having enough gas to go get gas. That said… I might make a trip to town 6 times a year.

It’s the frontier out here… riff-raff, cowboys and indians, other assorted ‘wild’ inhabitants… the weather is equally wild and so are the innumerable quantities of wildlife that we share the region with. I wouldn’t trade this spot for the world… I was very lucky to have found it and appreciated it’s potential so many years ago.

What I’m looking for:

I took all this on by myself and understand how difficult it is to even conceive of it as an individual. Ideally, I’d like to find a person or couple or even a very small group that was looking for an ideal place as I was when I located this one(I am not from here, I sought it out based on a long list of criteria). Learn what it’s all about and what you’re made of, and put yourself or yourselves in a secure position come what may. In a perfect world, ultimately take advantage of the numerous local and adjacent properties that come up for sale(often with owner financing and always very inexpensive) and set up permanantly on your own land, yet have still the community aspect we have created. If things were to ‘go South’ in the interim? Obviously, you’d already be in a very secure position.

My personal experience has lent me the opinion that ‘intentional communities’ are too flawed for my taste… and too prone to failure- causing everyone involved a very hard time. I think it’s important to ultimately ‘own’ the spot in which you end up.

I’m not concerned about ‘your skill set’ or what you might bring to the table. In my opinion, most of us under as well as over-estimate our own abilities, needs, etc… without having them put to the test. What I think you MUST have is:

Determination(even hard-headedness) to the point of never giving up
At least a desire if not the ability to see things for what they are, not as they ‘should be’
An interest or even a nostalgia for ‘the pioneers and settlers’ that came before us
A comprehension that attitude is as much an indicator of success or failure than anything

It doesn’t matter how much money you have or how much ‘stuff’ you’ve acquired. Everything you ‘need’ is in your head and heart. That said- you would need to be able to provide for yourself or do what’s necessary to do so at least for a few months or until you get your head around things.

I’m not interested in ‘making money’ off anyone. It would be essential that you help around here, and of course you would be helped as well. But I can’t ‘take care’ of anyone. You’ll have to be resolved to take care of yourself or yourselves.

As for children- I don’t entirely know the logistics of ‘big brother’ vs trying to raise a family ‘offgrid’. I know that homeschooling is an easier option that most places… It’s not a ‘deal breaker’… but it would require some extra investigation and discussion.

Criminal records, drug use(including pot) and alcoholism cannot be tolerated- occasional drinking doesn’t bother me, neither does smoking as long as you can provide your own tobacco or learn to grow it.

If you’re interested(and still reading)… feel free to contact me at *sustainabill at gee male dart calm*. Let’s set up some dialogue and see if we can find a mutually beneficial situation.

  1. Good luck out there.

I am looking for a prepper group to join from Louisiana. I was raised on a farm in N. Louisiana, been a prepper before there were preppers, and teach others now about woodcraft, growing food, living off of the grid, weapons, family protection, as well as what it takes to survive when SHTF. Anyone interested in an experienced and serious survivor please contact me at pooleconsulting [at] aol [dot] com…….thanks

I look forward to hearing from you!

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.

Our combat medic had to move out of state and we’re looking to fill that vacancy.  Someone with experience as a medic/corpsman would be great but we’d definitely consider an experienced civilian paramedic who’s willing to drill/train with our team.

You’ll need to be prepped up, you’ll need to be healthy, and you’ll need to be playing with a full deck.  You’ll have to be able to work with cops and ex-servicemen.   You’ll need to pass an involved vetting process including a background check.  Neo Nazis, anti-Semitics, skin heads, anarchists, communists, convicted felons, racists etc need not apply.

We’re located in a remote area of northern Michigan, have an excellent group of normal family people and an excellent retreat site.  We can offer you (and your family) a very good situation when it hits the fan if you qualify.

Hello, just found this site, I see not much traffic here so won’t be surprised if no response. I’m in South central KY (Barren county) not really looking to join a group but sure would be nice to exchange ideas and info with like minded people, looks like we’re few and far between.

Hi to all you preppers out there; my name is Ollie I have been getting ready for anything to happen in this world for 6 yrs now and it’s been quite the task, I have a lot of stuff but just missing a bug out place, all my stuff is in storage.

I had to retire way to early in my life do to a bad back I am only 58yrs young I can still do a lot of things I just have to be careful. I was a certified welder but have done a lot of other crafts I also have a green thumb.

Year’s ago I use to mountain man rendezvous all over Utah with my wife and children we had a lot of fun doing that and I learned lots of stuff. I won a lot of shoots in the black powder rifle also did knife and hawk competition. I have have my own tepee or what we would call them Lodges, I made my own buckskin s and have done trapping too.

I have 8 guns not black powder and a lot ammo, food, tools, my own welding equipment, Jeep,4 wheeler with trailer. I guess what I am trying to say is again is I’ve got a lot stuff but need to find a goup of people that I could blend in with to survive when shtf.

So if you have a good group of people not extremest semi ok I believe in God and Jesus Christ I am not a Christian addict but will protect myself and others if need be. I live on the outskirts of Salina UT 17 miles south of Richfield.

So if you think I might fit in with your group drop me a line at odusmack [at] gmail [dot] com.

Hey it was 61F degrees and it is almost December. Of course it could be below zero F any day also. We are in central/western montana with knowledge, stuff and a place to be that can be heated without electricity.

Well buckets. heirloom seeds, generators, solar power, herbal medicine, allopathic medicine,

Are you in the area or moving to the area? lets chat. Self reliant living is our path along with living and working in the present.

I am some what new to prepping and am looking to meet prepping groups. I am Christian and me family owns farm land in the area. We have stored some food and also made water and lighting arrangements. My father is a retired sheet metal worker and a farmer by trade. I have trained horses and cattle in my youth. I have learning gardening skills and my mother knows how to cook on a wood burning cook stove. We all know how to build a fire in doors and out since we have using wood burning hearing stove most of our lives. We also have camping gear. If their are like minded prepped people in our area we would like to get to know them.

Nov 092017

Things are looking more and more unstable in the world each day to say the least. Looking for a group in the area that is well organized, trains and has each others backs. Not looking for pretenders or folks that do things half way. I don’t care for anarchists, racist, or tin hats. I was a police officer for 6 1/2 years, an R.N. for 25 years. I have worked construction. I reload.  I am in excellent physical shape. I’m a conservative. What I don’t know I am willing to learn. After all a group is only as good as it’s weakest link.      Hoping for the best, preparing for the worst.

PS. Here is a shout out to Old Food, glad to see you are still around.

Hey All
The Survive N Thrive Preparedness Group will continue to meet on a monthly basis now. Our next 2 meetings are Saturday, Nov 18 and Saturday, Dec 16, 2017 from 4pm to 6pm at the Millersburg Community center/Library, 5561 Main St, Millersburg, MI….This is between Onaway and Rogers City off 68.
FREE MEETING…Potluck dinner…All are welcome.
This is a meet up to acquaint concerned or curious people to the concept of being prepared for emergencies whether it’s an economic downturn, natural disaster, power outage etc…Being prepared ahead of time gives you & your family peace of mind & puts you in a position to help others when disaster strikes. This is for everyone at all levels of preparedness. If you are new to this, there will be experienced people to offer advice & help you formulate a plan to thrive thru an emergency situation. If you are a seasoned prepper, we welcome you to share your knowledge & help mentor others that are just starting out. Family Friendly! See you there!

Nov 052017

If you have training/experience with scouting/reconnaissance (Special Forces/Force Recon/etc) -we are looking for you.  Contact us for all the details but we have and are everything you’d want plus more than you can imagine to stay safe yourself and keep your family safe.  We’re located in northern Michigan in a very rural area not near any cities or freeways within a national forest.

Respond to…  tscm120 [at] gmail [dot] com

We are looking to add a few new members to our group with different skill sets.  Currently have very defensible location and finishing advanced preps.  It is only really cold here in coastal Maine 4 months out of the year and the summers are not to harsh to handle. We are far enough from the cities ect.

We hope to find good people who will grow to become great friends.  Getting to know each other and getting together to plan and prepare together and train together must be a priority.  It is necessary to work out all the details as a group before TSHTF and not scramble after to figure it out.  That can lead to a lot of fun training, and brainstorming and problem solving.  If you have military or medic skills please contact me. 

If you are just new to prepping and haven’t really done anything to prepare yet then I don’t mind talking to you, but probably wouldn’t ask you to join our group, unless you are a heart surgeon or a Navy Seal. Lol. 

We are looking for experienced individuals or small families that are fairly underway to being “prepared” but that feel they need to form a relationship with someone with a good bug out location to join forces for strength in numbers and for having others that grow to care about them when everything falls apart. 

If this sounds like we might be a good fit PM me.  Also please do not try to get set up here as a bug out location, learn about our preps and then not actively “prep together” and just have us as your fall back.  That won’t work.  We are looking for serious people.

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.

We have 100 acres in Cocke County TN. We are creating a small self sufficient community. We are looking for 6 more families to join us and build permanent homes, each on their own 5 to 15 acre parcel within this 100 acre community. We will also host limited numbers of shelters for part-time and emergency only members. To put it bluntly, we need money and labor to build infrastructure. We do not have a set price or single plan. If we feel you will be a good fit in our community, we will work out a plan that all can agree on.

We already have occupied homes and outbuildings. We have construction equipment. We have workshop space and tools. We have power and water.

We do not have empty homes ready for move-in. We do not have the money to finance home building. We can provide site preparation including excavation and septic installs. We can help with designing and building, just not financing.

We are working on establishing income producing businesses to provide jobs for community members.

We are not particularly religious, and we have no bias against anyone.

We are not militaristic, but we will defend our community. We consider concealment to be the first line of defense, deterrence the second, and overwhelming force the last. We won’t demand anything, but we can help with training and equipment if you want or need it.

We believe in the fundamental principles of the U.S. Constitution. We aren’t interested in dictatorships, theocracies, socialism, communism, etc.

We believe we can produce everything needed in a permanently sustainable way by carefully balanced group members and activities.

We don’t want to do anything illegal.

If you are interested, contact me at professionaljoat at gmail dot com.
