I’m new to this site(like as of this morning) and am looking for people in the Boise area to do some shooting with. If you’re in the Boise area and enjoy busting caps, putting rounds on target or whatever other cool way to say shoot guns please feel free to message me.

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.

Hello,

My name is Faith, I am a 20-year-old prepper. I’ve been learning and practicing prepping since I was twelve years old. Recently I have developed a master plan for SHTF scenarios, and I’d like to create an established group of preppers, young or old, new or experienced; to help me build that community.  Currently, I live in Barren County, Kentucky, however, I want the community to go beyond physical location.

I’ll attach a copy of my plan files below.

My plan for this network goes like this: This forum thread is the online base camp for us to communicate. Currently, it is just me, but those that wish to form an official network.  We will swap contact information, a name you wish to be called and a general location (nothing too specific, just to get a basic idea as to where we all are.)

From there we’d discuss our knowledge of prepping and any other questions, then when enough people are a part of this network, choose a place for a meet up to get to know each other and establish not only a network but also a friendship, with a common goal of preparedness and survival.

Just as a precaution I’ll make something clear up front: I am a tolerant, open minded person. I respect all ways of life and those who wish to join will not be discriminated on for any reason, you will be judged by your words and actions alone. I will not accept bigoted, racist, sexist, or any form of prejudice. All opinions and expressions are welcomed to be voiced but please do so in a respectable manner. It is encouraged to site and support all statements for show education on the topic of discussion. Bottom line, regardless of skin color, culture, religion, gender, sexuality or any other label we are all here to prepare and share knowledge of survival, and life doesn’t care who or what you are.

With that our of the way:

Those who wish to join the network can post a reply to this post with a method of contact and I will respond within three days. Questions or comments can be discussed here as well.

Note: not all my files will be shown, for security reasons, but you can get an idea of my plans.

Best Wishes,

Faith S.

Are there any out there? Would like to connect if possible. Looking for a safe house for single women, have been prepping can bring skills to the table. But the more in numbers will make light work. Or help fortify this home, in a rural area. PM me please
Thanks

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at 1 PM on Saturday, January 12, 2019 at Advanced Health, 289 Laclair St, Coos Bay, OR 97420. Please note the time change – 1 PM start time.

The main topic is “Preparedness Check Up”. We will start the year by evaluating just how prepared we are for disaster. Let’s discover where we are lacking so we can focus on being better prepared this year.

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.

Hello,

My name is Kurt and I’m a Master Electrician with a small Electrical Contracting company in SW Michigan. I’m interested in finding, and joining, a prepper/homesteading community. I currently live in a somewhat large city (Kalamazoo, MI) and I’m not in the “good part” of the city. So when I hear advice like “come out of her my people” it really hits home.

As I mentioned, I’ve been prepping food for a while now (going on two years). However, I also have LOTS of tools and equipment from all my years in the construction business. I have several cordless drill/drivers, impact drivers, hammer drills, sawzalls, circular saws, and flashlights. In corded tools I have all of those mentioned in the cordless style (except flashlights) plus a couple of grinders, an oscillating tool, saw/sander, a belt sander, two palm sanders, two shop vacs, a router, several heat guns, and several other things as I’m sure I’m forgetting some tools. I also have all kinds of hand tools, socket sets, pipe wrenches, hammers, sledge hammers, axess, an electric chainsaw and a gas powered one, two kerosene heaters, a propane “bullet” heater, fish tapes, fish chains, fish sticks, and fishing poles (tackle too). You get the point…I have just about everything I could possibly need in the way of tools. That includes several ladders of all types and sizes, and everything you can think of in terms of gardening/lawn working tools; shovels, rakes, hoes, etc. Also hoses, sprinklers, fertilizers, clamps, connectors, adapters, valves, etc, etc. I have a plethora of tools and equipment, and I would be bringing it all…eventually. I’m sure it will take several trips over some time to complete this relocation.

My current target location is SW Arkansas in the Arkansas Ozarks. It’s in a geologically stable region of the United States. It’s in the Ozark Mountains, so it has the necessary elevation I was looking for in terms of flooding and defensive positions. There’s a very abundant supply of clean drinking water in the form of springs, rivers, and lakes. And the forested areas have plenty of wildlife, so fish and game are available. And there are not any big cities anywhere close to the area I was considering, so less chance of the desperate, lawless, hungry hoards showing up at your door. The winters are mild, especially compared to my home in Michigan, and that was definitely a consideration when I was figuring out “bug out locations” to move to.

With all that said, I’m still very open to suggestions, and  by no means have I made up my mind that the Ozarks are the only place to consider relocating to. However, wherever else I consider moving to will have to meet most, if not all, of the above considerations to qualify as a place I would be interested in landing.

So do you have suggestions? Do you have a place that’s looking for top-notch potential members with a lot to offer the community? I would love to set up a time to come for a visit to look at potential communities, and to have you check me out as well.

Please contact me via email or directly by text/call at (269) 312-0331.

Thank you,

Kurt

I am looking to make contact with a group of preppers and individuals to potentially work together before and after an event in order to help take care of our families. Doing this alone is ineffective and I would like to meet some people and if nothing else, learn new tips, tricks and skills.

Hello,

I am a prepper from just southeast of Detroit.

A little about myself:                                                                                                               I am a married man in my 40s with no children who is a trained and very experienced mechanic I have professionally worked on everything from small engines to aircraft with the exception of trains. I have been prepping for the better part of 12 years now I am well versed in a variety of skills and have stock-piled a great deal of food, water, and supplies. I am well versed in firearms use, training, reloading, and simple gunsmithing.

What I am looking for:                                                                                                            I am looking for a small group of people who believe in being prepared for whatever life may throw our way but who also want to lead as normal a life as is possible. Anyone interested should be a capable person who has a good amount of supplies laid in already I am not looking for any particular skill sets at this moment but neither am I looking to train someone from the ground up. I am looking for local people only who are willing to meet up on a regular basis to be determined.

If you are interested then please contact me through the comments section let me know briefly your age range, prepping experience, and the general area you live in. If we look to be compatible then I will give you an E-Mail address and we can discuss things in detail.

 

Thank you for your interest.

I am highly intelligent and have seen pretty much everything as far as planet earth. to try and pull something shady on my po-dink ass would be very stupid. i’m a very honest person and am very sincere in what I post on this website. i’m weird in that I detest vehicles and phones. I don’t like the internet much but have to use it to get shit accomplished! in my opinion the pony express should still be running and everybody should be wearing six-shooters, and there should be frontier justice!!! hit me up if you want to chew the fat type thing.

We have two private apartments in our older comfortable house on one acre. We are 20 miles from the continental divide and 4 miles from the Missouri river and three lakes. The town is Helena which is 30K people and the state capital, we are 12 miles out and on the fringe of the woods and road less area.

There are job and education opportunities in the area and some great fishing and hunting. My wife and I have skills ranging from mechanical, welding, RN nurse, alternative healing and herbs.  check out some of my posts on the forum connected with this site, I have been working a lot this summer so I haven’t posted as much lately.

We are looking for someone who has a means of income and is interested in growing a garden and sharing and learning things. you would be expected to pay rent for your private apartment to help pay for the house and cost of operation. The apartment is also available as a place to stage your prep supplies.

We also have room for a motor home or RV. This would be an opportunity for someone who wants a spot outside of a major metropolitan area that is a day or so away from us. This could be Billings MT., Salt lake city, Spokane Wa.

We are raising a teenager and feel that children are a major reason for persevering in hard times.

I truly believe hard times are coming either in a economic depression or more serious problems.  Give me a shout at [email protected]  I will be checking weekly.

Hello! I am from the Denton area and I am interested in starting, or joining a group.

I unfortunately do not have a homestead or bugout, but I do have necessary supplies incase of a catastrophe. My teammates must have their own bugout/homestead, and be willing to share their place with other teammates.

In return, teammates will share valuable supplies with the group, share any skills they have, and be willing to defend the group as a family.

I will not arrive empty handed, and will most certainly have items to help all of us. I need others with the same mindset to reach out to me soon. [email protected] is where I reply back instantly.

I will contact informed Preppers so we can create a group with many knowledgeable people.

If somebody has a group, which relates to the description I gave, and preferably are Christians then reach out to me soon. I am young, but have knowledge to help in case of an emergency.

Furthermore, if anyone is interested in starting a group, has their own homestead, copy my email and reach out to me as soon as possible.

Are you looking for a safe place when times get tough?
Do you take prepping seriously and are you willing to go all the way, holding nothing back?

I have been on this journey of preparing for anything for over 2 decades, so I take this very seriously and I don’t have time to be wasting it on those who are not willing to work hard and give their all.

I had originally been looking for a small community to join, but I have recently inherited a small parcel of land in the county which is suitable for a maximum number of 6 people. This land has been in my family for 3 generations now and this is the land I grew up on so it is very important to me that only the right people come here.
I am currently seeking a few good people who have the right mindset, and are willing to work towards a common goal of self sufficiency and self reliance, instead of relying on the State for your sustenance, If this is you, then I would like to speak with you.

I have already begun the work to turn both the front and back yards into a small food forest with fruit trees and bushes as well as nut trees and of course a nice variety of vegetables combined with lots of nice wild edibles. I also have a small field which will be capable of producing enough protein rich meat and eggs for everyone, but will need to build the infrastructure for that before putting any animals in there. All of this is possible but since I am just one man I am only able to do so much so fast. There are already 2 wells on the property and some basic fencing. There is electricity here but at some point I want to go completely solar.

While this small group of people will not be a religious based community so as not to alienate anyone, I will insist that those who come here will be of the right quality and character.
I will not insist that those who get involved live here on the land as long as they are willing to invest both time and resources to making this happen. If you plan to live on the land you will need to have enough of an income to be able to help pay the bills and feed yourself (unless you wish to eat as a group) as well as investing in resources to develop the land. If you don’t really have the time to come regularly and help make things happen but are willing to invest resources, that will still secure you a place here.

I do not have time for anyone who carries a lot of baggage or suffers from psychological disorders. I am in no way interested in dealing with anyone else’s drama. I have worked very hard to get rid of as much of the drama in my life as is possible, and now I insist that this remains a “Drama Free Zone”.

Initial interviews will be done over the phone, and you will be asked about everything from your political ideologies to “what if”. Anyone seriously considered will be required to come visit and spend a few days to a couple weeks if possible to see if this is really where you want to be. After that, if we decide that you will come here, there will be a probationary period where you will live here and participate in everything being done, before a final decision is made. I have been involved in helping to set up a few communities so I know what works and what doesn’t. As I said earlier I have been on this journey of preparing for anything for over 2 decades, so I take this very seriously.
If you’re interested, drop me a message and leave your email address.

Let’s talk.

I have read a lot of people posting here as off the grid and such, but if you own land and are basing your group from there you are not off the grid. Off the grid means having the skills to pack up and go where no one knows where you are. no paper trail from land tax, land purchasing, etc.

Being able to move around quickly and efficiently is a hard skill to learn. Quickly building a shelter for the conditions you are dealing with is more work than most people think. I am ex military, trained in avoiding people. I think people who prepare their prep and store it at their home are none to bright. Martial Law gets declared and you not allowed to drive you are totally bollocked cause you cant tote it around. Looking for a few people who understand this. I have scouted several locations throughout the spring and summer. finding sites where you can get access to clean water is getting more difficult. anyways if anyone has any similar ideas hit me up

We are developing a born-again Christian community and a nuclear bomb shelter (three-quarters complete) for a totally self-sufficient community in the mountains.  This is a gorgeous location nestled between the mountains with good view of the road.

We still have room but not for much longer. Even though Donald Trump was elected, the elite plan to collapse the world economy so you need to respond fast. We want people with resources and talents so we can save others who are not as fortunate when the time comes.

My wife and I are looking to join or start a group around the Kansas city area. We will be moving down there soon once i get out of the Army. Just looking to see whos out there that my wife myself and our daughter can build with.

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.

Hello all once again. Under further realization that it very well be the final phases of people accepting new members to join their ranks. Im interested in looking up some owner financed property either north or east of cobb county ga. If a secondary home or community cant get to a chosen location within 45 mins to 1 hour tops driving, using side roads,  there is no reason to attempt to form a legitimate homestead location. If anybody is interested contact me at benteam2020 @ yahoo.com ive tried to reach out to real groups but guess the legit ones went silent. I just hit 30 and know the value of invesment and time. Time in which im not taking for granted. The property doesnt have to have a house on it just the land to build on. Like minded and responsible people are welcomed. Lunatic fringe, and overly exposed people from forums are not…

Do you have the skills to survive???

Communities on Whidbey Island need to come together and make a plan. They’re will  not be emergency help once the crap hits the fan and what I mean by crap is when there is no food or supplies left in the stores on the Island. People that are not prepared for this will be coming to you for help. Are you going to turn them away? So I am looking for like minded people to join in and share their survival peppers skills in case of a natural disaster on Whidbey Island. “BE PREPARED”

What if you were hiking on a trail or camping with some friends and went for a walk when suddenly you don’t know the way back? Do you have enough survival skill to stay put and regroup or maybe survive a night in the woods until you are found or make it back out. “What If” Do you have the skills to survive???

Survival in NY during current times is daunting as it is. Lately I’ve been having a tough time, although making due while watching my income go to pay taxes. I’ve been looking for new work, preferably a caretaker or superintendent position in ME or NH, the state’s my heart belongs. I’m 26 and still just young enough to move around and try to start somewhere fresh. As well as getting in touch with new people to share ideas for sustainable living post grid, if anyone needs my resume I figure I should ask around here. I’m a tractor and heavy equipment operator/tech by trade, but have built barns, poured concrete, installed plumbing and run conduit. I’ve got a resume and references for anyone who is interested.

We are just outside of Helena Montana. We have a private apartment in our house that is currently vacant. If you are interested in moving to montana or currently live here get in touch. We also are in a town that has several colleges and quite a bit of employment.

The time is coming when it will be crucial for sane moral people to come together for self reliant living. We have multiple skills and have been into preparedness for some time. My wife and I are both past retirement age but we both work full time and are raising a teenager.

Acquiring a years food supply, gaining knowledge to be self reliant is the easy part. Finding others you can get along with and share common goals is the challenge.

I will be traveling from montana to seattle in the middle of sept 2018. Anyone along the way that wants to get together at a coffee shop for some prepper talk  message me.

I am starting a family friendly prepper group in the Salt Lake Utah area, this group is not church affiliated, religious persons are welcome no fanatics please. Being a patriot is a requirement. We will be creating a survival program from the ground up. Veterans are also welcome.
