Looking for like-minded Christians interested
in setting up a safe haven (arc of safety) …
preferably in BC or Alberta. The LORD will
tell us exactly where He wants us to be.
After 2023, there will be many disastrous
events such as earthquakes, tsunamis, etc.
… and it appears that the safest locations
will be in certain mountainous areas.
If you are interested …
please write for more information.
Sincerely in the LORD,
Have a spare cabin for someone who wants to trade homestead chores for a secure place for the summer at least.
In the inland Empire looking for like minded, clock is now ticking to bug out, but have no location, need to meet, talk or figure a way of helping each other before shtf…..
FUNNY I CAN’T SEEM TO EVEN GIVE THIS AWAY!
All I am asking…
From my future partners and community is: A minimum commitment of just two items:
- Commit to storing 6 months of long-term food in storage on our ranch for each member of your family or your group. People simply cannot just show up be part pf the team if you have not made this minimum investment.
- The desire to have a place to bug out to or retreat to, and be part of a like-minded team, without – the need to actually invest in anything should the times require such actions.
I actually thought that people may actually want a place to bug out or retreat to from the cities if it ever became necessary.
I am not looking for you to move on to my ranch tomorrow and make a permanent home and wait for the worst to arrive. I simply want my ranch to be your insurance policy should the worst ever come to us. I really don’t even need to see you unless it’s necessary to retreat to the ranch. No monthly meetings, no fees, no training!
My concern is: I cannot keep what I have built from those who will no doubt want to take what I’ve built without the support of a motivated team who also has some skin in the game. In my opinion, most people in the city won’t have a chance unless they have a rural, isolated place that is well stocked they can escape to and this is an expensive thing to prepare for. Yet its already built and well stocked. In my opinion there must be people that will view this plan as one where we can help each other.
I work overseas on rotation as a pilot supporting our troops. I invest in the ranch, I work on it when I’m home and I’m doing what I can to attract like-minded people.
In my opinion, the ability to feed your people is key, without food there is no need for people to defend anything, in fact without food it’s time to go looking for food. We have many luxuries here that many groups will never have, and it is a nice place.
As a member of The Ranch, you can bring your family to camp on the farm for a weekend, use our gym, our golf course, our shooting range and our wood fired pizza oven. Perhaps you may even help out on a building project, or work in our greenhouse or gardens. One of our current projects is restoring an 1865 log building. Its slotted to be our new Bourbon barn. We are also building some wood fired hot tubs. I think it’s important for your family to physically and personally see their retreat so it’s not a fearful of an unknown place should you ever need to come to The Ranch in a bad situation.
There are many things that make The Ranch and our program unique, we are one of the only groups that will be able to maintain “Air superiority” over our neck of the woods. The ability of awareness of your local and, distant surroundings is a good thing.
The Ranch manager is a former marine, if such thing exists, this young man in his late 20’s and very knowledgeable small arms instructor. When I’m working overseas as a pilot, he’s always here to answer questions, conduct a tour and discuss with you who we are. He will also assure you that we will ever ask you to invest in the ranch or give us your money!
I am trying to stress, this isn’t about money, keep your money, we are selling nothing. No spaces in a bunker here like other commercial ventures trying to make a million off peoples fears. We are looking for likeminded members with the means to make a commitment and buy their own food – PERIOD.
The Ranch is about building a team where we all are prepared collectively. We each have an effective insurance policy in place to retreat to should the worst that may happen. The Ranch is your well thought out plan to protect your family without it costing you anything really. I say without costing you anything because I don’t view you buying and storing food for your own family as me asking you for something.
I find it interesting, even those people that are open to the idea of an insurance plan to prepare for the worst will read up on it, will talk about it with their family and friends but – at the end of the day will do nothing about it. Even though the voice in their head is telling them that they should have a backup plan to bug out some where safe would be a good idea in the best interest of their family.
There are so many questions that you may want to ask yourself when the lights go out or worse is, what will I do? where will I go? Should the cities ever lose control, have you done everything in your power to assure the safety of yourself and your family? – I hope you have. I know I am trying to and, I am trying to help others too.
READ PLEASE BEFORE YOU CONTACT ME:
I have had many people contact me over the years with an interest in being part of The Ranch. People that have excellent skill sets. But please understand that I cannot feed 50 people on my own regardless of your amazing skill set. If you cannot supply the food required for your family as outlined in this post, I am not interested in hearing from you. Everyone must contribute the minimum.
April 2020 Prepper Ranch Update
Location: An hour north of Louisville & an hour south of Bloomington Indiana. Heart of the Martin State forest
Finally! I’m getting interested and like-minded folks to take my offer seriously. I suppose we all need a wakeup call, some of got it with other events but this even is a real call to action. I have received heaps of inquires so I will attempt to answer most of the questions that I have received in this document. I’ll list the questions I have received and provide the answers as best as I can. Thank you for all of the good questions both posted online and emailed to me.
Q. Food – Must we bring and store our food there on the ranch?
A. Yes. If you do not have food stored on the ranch – enough 25-year shelf life food for each member of your family, then in my opinion it’s not a commitment or an investment.
Q. Who protects or distributes the food?
A. I do not have that answer but it will need to be addressed – suggestions?
This is my biggest concern- Who among us will steal the food or, from outside come and take the food – It is a ranch and not a protected compound- There must be established protocols at other places that we can copy or follow? Remember, most places are charging you a huge fee to get on board – I am not – I am looking for likeminded help, a good deal of guidance as well.
Q. Do I get the food that I bring?
A. Yes- if we agree that we need 3 meals a day, for six months than that will be what you withdraw from the food bank for six months. If an event lasts more than 6 months than its just what we grow. I love veggies but not every meal. And I assure you all of the local deer will be killed off in six months
Q. Will MY FOOD be there – that I stored there be there when I arrive?
A. My initial answer is yes. Again, I have not all of the answers. If we get raided, the food is taken at gun point its out of our control. What I would like to do is bury a 12 foot by 50-foot drainpipe and store the food in this fashion. But its 15K more than I have at the moment. I want to answer you yes but again, I need some guidance here. How do you know your food is safe where it is at the moment? Is it under 24/7-armed security? I want to think that it would be safer here with people on site, but I honestly do not know. Again? Thoughts? suggestions? Excellent question. – And yes, you can eat pizza, and put your AR in your golf bag while playing golf. I do exactly that often. Generally, it’s a .22 though – actually, with some homemade refreshments as well. With five acres of grapes, anything is possible.
Q. I have certain experience that should allow me to not have to store anything on the ranch. i.e. Doctor, Vet, etc.
A. Sorry, we all bring unique experiences to the ranch and if the situation gets really bad, then our food can lure in any person with the experiences we may need at that point in time.
Q. Guns, Ammo what do we need?
A. That’s up to you and highly suggested – We are not a militant group although we have active mil people in the group. If I say here that you need to bring arms, then I’ll just get on a list somewhere as a militant wacko.
Q. What is the ranch normal business?
A. We do family reunions, weddings and corporate retreats. So, when the world is good, our business is good and we have people renting the place almost every weekend. When the world is bad- NOW- we have zero business and all of our rentals have canceled. We are building a microbrew etc. on site.
Q. Can I buy my way in at the last minute? As in right now?
A. That’s a good question. At the moment I do not have the food stores for anyone new. As long as we can still buy food each week at the store then there may be an opportunity. But I am not looking for money, I am not looking to make this a profit center. But I do want to improve what we have and do not yet have.
Q. What Items do you need at the ranch?
A. Now that is a still big list! We are now up to 2 Mil invested in the ranch, so we have most of the basic infrastructure in place. I believe I posted a list of what we have. If I did not, then email me back and I’ll send it out.
1. We need some solar, not a lot but enough to charge our personal devices in the event we lose power. We have 3 generators, but gas won’t last.
2. We could use a new ranger or golf cart to get to get around if working about the property
3. Let’s just say there is plenty that we could use to make the place perfect but I am not going to list it all here and, I’ll eventually buy all that is needed as I am paying as I go – I work still. FOOD is the key
Q. How long can we stay
A. Only as long as needed – this is not a commune until there is a total collapse and then I guess we are a family. I see the ranch as a place you go, hunker down when needed and then return to your life after the “event”
Q. What do we pay while we stay?
A. Buy your own food as long as the stores remain open and share in the elect and propane. We will not dip into the stored food until it is all that is left
A. If we have power then we will all need to pay the elect and propane each month – the more people the higher the bill.
Q. Do I have to work on the ranch?
A. That depends on the situation. If we need help in the grow room, the garden or the green house then we need help. Some people will continue to tele commute a regular job- I suppose they will need to pay more than the person just working in a garden- I really have not figured this out- I do not necessarily need to be the one who makes all of the rules. Collectively we will need to create some form of who does what and when if there is to be order.
Q. What about bugging out to the ranch right now? We meet all of your requirements and requests?
A. This is the best question of all and the most difficult to answer. Who is infected? Are you infected right now and don’t know it? Or, does it matter? The government says that 70 percent of us are going to test positive even if we do not get sick. I ask you – What are your thoughts on this? There are no confirmed cases as of today in our county.
Q. Can I meet your leaders
A. At the moment that would be myself, my youngest son who is an airline pilot, my oldest son is a butcher, an active duty captain in the Army, and a couple other former army folks. I’ll use Leader loosely at the moment as none of these guys have felt the need to arrive yet. Once we have a real group of committed folks then we should meet for a weekend once in a while to improve the plan. No one has shown a real interest until now so no real plan with real people has progressed. It’s just been “I’ll see you when it gets real bad period”
Q. Can I review your security?
A. Ill say- meet our Army Captain and his crew and myself. Anyone with experience and can assist us in creating real security is an asset. I currently work on bases in Africa and Afghanistan I am currently down range at the moment. I am a pilot here- I am not a security expert but my guys have the skills. In fact, and, I am stuck on a base overseas as I write this response. I am due home any day. (if that’s actually possible, I’ll believe it when it happens)
Q. Farm animals?
A. We had Milk goats and it was a daily pain in my butt. When it’s just me taking care of them it’s a chore. If there were people here than its easier to manage livestock and goat cheese is excellent. We do have 80 acres of high 8’ fence and the plan is to get more meat animals moving forward- Again, someone needs to be on site every day and dedicated to caring for these animals.
Q. Moral compass?
A. Regular folks we are I’ll say. Some go to church some don’t. Some drink I do, I like my cigars too. I think any community can be a blend. If you are looking for a strictly Christian community then this is not it. But there is no reason you would not fit in unless that is your specific goal to find such a community. My wife enjoys church and she teaches yoga. We definitely are a fitness community. We have two gyms, a martial arts gym, a huge weight gym with dumbbells up to 120 and we enjoy our fitness. We also shoot clays and our sport guns as a hobby.
Q. What projects are you working on at the ranch?
A. Several projects – I am building a microbrewery, and a winery in the pizza barn. Remember, the ranch needs to continue to create revenues so it can pay its own bills right up and until the SHTF. I am not charging anyone as a bug out location. But If I did, I’d have this project completed already! And at the moment, with the lock down – the ranch has zero rental revenues. We had to refund over 50K in rentals last week due to virus cancels.
Other fun projects when I get back are: A solar herb and vegetable dehydrator, a meat smoker shed, and a wood fired hot tub. There are too many things on the to do list to list- Install gates at the three entrances etc. Buy a smaller plane that we can land on the ranch, we just sold our personal aircraft as it was to big to land on the property.
I hope I have answered everyone’s questions. If not – shoot me another email and I’ll do my best to answer your questions. And thank you for responding to this post. Your questions have helped me realize how both prepared we are here and, that we still have many holes to fill to be safer and to protect our supplies.
If you have ideas, suggestions, please contact me- Plenty of room for improvements and open to such.
Well, we did it. Got prepared ahead of the crisis, got a year’s supply of food, stored water, gathered medicines, seeds, tools, and various supplies, learned, trained, and talked out the details.
On the other hand…We missed the bus for the hills. With a 9 month old who has fought to live every minute of her life, we simply couldn’t leave our suburban shelter. Now we hunker down and wait out this crisis until we can safely GOOD.
Looking for others who might be in this kind of situation, and for anyone who may be willing to discuss the future should we survive this pandemic.
Email: [email protected]
I am getting calls and emails about my ranch over the past week.
Can you take us, we are ready now, where are you located? Will you accept us?
Personally, I am disappointed- I feel like I did not try hard enough to market my place so that I could have reached more people.
This event is exactly why I created my ranch and our program. A safe haven where families store 6 months of food and necessary supplies on my ranch in the event of a crisis. And when the crisis hits- you simply load up the family, your personal stuff and get to the ranch away from the masses. Your food and supplies have already been stored in advance and you have a like minded community to support each other.
Now it’s too late to get to the ranch, you are likely stuck in the cities and have limited supplies. If you do are not limited now, then you may be soon. And, I do not have the supplies and resources alone to cover having the people come now who are requesting that I allow them in now at this late date. I am sorry.
The green house is going strong, the garden is just going in and the freezers are full – And for those who actually took me up on my free offer to prepare with me- well they are in a very save place away from the crowd and the lock downs. in fact, as a farm, we are allowed or categorized “necessary” travel for our people.
There are ZERO cases of the virus in the remote rural county where I am located- That is at this moment as I write this. One thing is certain, we have food, we have wide open spaces and we have – Enough for us who prepared.
As soon as this is over I am making the same exact offer – I am going to ask the same for the people who read this. Simply store six months of 25 year shelf life food on the ranch and if anything like this happens again you will have a safe sanctuary to bring your family.
Of my 18 bedrooms, only 6 people had gotten on board in advance, stored their food and are safely out of the packed and infected cities. No one here is sick yet so they playing golf on our private course, enjoying the shooting ranges, working in the garden, taking care of the chickens, the micro greens grow room or green house, working on line with their regular job just passing the time in the woods and praying to remain healthy.
What a waste of space- 10 more families could have joined us. But few listened to our offer to help.
This virus will pass- people will forget – and one of two things will happen next time.
1. You will have prepared for the next event and made plans for such a situation or,
2. You will be in the same situation next time or perhaps worse off than you are today.
I wish everyone well and I hope to god that people learn from this event. The next one may be many time worse. I am not trying to rub a sore wound here, I am attempting to make you think and encourage you to plan for the future- This may very well only be the start of things to come.
I wish everyone who reads this luck and good health. And please contact me after this terrible event and join up with us for a safer and better prepared future.

- Hi we are looking for preppers to join our semi established group. Looking to combine skill and essential preperation and forming a brotherhood/ family..Prepping, training and survival..please e mail me if anyone is interested i can be reached at
Hello from Montana. We offer a small private apartment in our house on one acre located outside the state capital. The amount of government jobs in the area gives the economy a stable base for now and we have more services than normal for a town of 35K people. We have rented to college students and retirees in the past and are comfortable with someone living in the house but each of us has their own private space.
We have enough non hybrid and hybrid seed to grow a bit of garden, our private well is pumpable with our 12 volt pump if necessary and the Missouri river is 4 miles away. We live close to wilderness areas and my wife has been researching areas such as these that are close by as well. www.montanamegaliths.com
Say hello if you are looking for a place away form the crowd but not ready to hide in the woods.
I figure I give this one more try. Over the past few years it has been ebb and flow with finding a meaningful and practical group to be apart of whether it was during great or not so great times. I have dabbled into many forms of self sufficiency and would like to put all my knowledge into practice but I don’t think that’s wise doing it in the dense populated part of power springs. I also rather use common sense in joining or creating a group who rather put their knowledge to use in an area where they can all agree upon (rather bought strip of land or someone with the most land). I also rather not have multiple interstates that one would have to trek over ( you all know the ones I-20, I- 285 , —.. lol) in order to get to a certain area if the need calls for a prolonged stay. In essence a place where we put our skills to use, build up our staging area, create a proto – tech homestead (we do live in the 21st century and had electricity for multiple centuries lol) get together for meets, and friendship.
I’m 32 years old and a family man (married w/ kids) that is doing good for myself as far as I can tell. I know as the years go by it become harder and harder to find group is not completely closed off. So if ANY one is still out there that feels that they still have time to create a balanced and (logical ) community contact me 470 – 715- 7768. The name is Ben.
Hi there everyone I live in the Texas panhandle and Im looking for other preppers near me to chat and possibly even meet up at some point.
I want to connect with other like minded prepper types here on Florida’s Space Coast. I have extensive skills in many prepping areas such as Radio Comm, Herbal medicine, outdoor skills, self defense, weapons, first aide, organization, equipment repair, carpentry, machining, and more. I believe this pandemic is going to eventually collapse the economy and we are headed for some very tough times. I want to build a local network of vetted people who are committed to working together to survive the coming storm. Message me if you are local to the Florida Space Coast and are seriously interested in becoming part of this network.
Any prepper groups near Greer, SC ?
I am looking for anyone in this area to connect with that shares the same line of thinking. Grant it I am fairly new yet one must start somewhere. I look forward to hearing from you. Even if you personally do not know of a group, any website or book would be appreciated.
Thank you very much
I’m not worried about the Coronavirus as a health issue because all the contradictory statements and advisories.
People are getting tense and anxious and desperate because some don’t have jobs to go to right now. It’s escalating everyday. People are hoarding food so food prices very well could skyrocket to deter that.
If you’re with or trying to link up with local prepper groups, please send a private message or email about how you’re getting connected and anything you’re doing last minute to insulate yourself against the backlash, not the virus itself.
I am a single true born again christian filled with the Holy Spirit recognizing the times….visiona nd revealtions and working in the gifts of the Holy Spirit. I am an independent minister. I would like to take refuge and or join a group and leave the city…pacific northwest is what I am aiming for but anywhere else is better than where I am now. My 22 year old son who is a man of God will more than likely be joining me. Please anyone who can help me or give me any advice contact me at [email protected]
Hello, my name is Randy, and I am a sincere, Jesus-following Christian. I spent four years in the United States Marines Corps and was honorably discharged, and am also an Eagle Scout. With that said, I am one of those “insane preppers” which is not so insane. I am not only preparing basic supplies, but also have extensive knowledge on group protection techniques when anarchy hits. It is true that within a week or two of everything going down, that your neighbor will likely become your enemy as people literally, in some instances, will kill for your food (including gangs). I am looking for active participants in this group and allow for those who cannot care for themselves to come along with active participants. This will be like the early church in Acts, and all will be interviewed with God’s discernment to make sure we have no wolves in our group. All accepted individuals will be required to stock supplies for themselves and their families for at least two months. There will also be vital information relayed to the group for further supplies. I am not in this for a penny of profit, just for love of my sisters and brothers when we will rely solely on our Father in heaven. Do not expect the government to supply anything including police protection. Understand that we are being grossly lied to regarding the impending devastating effects of the Coronavirus effecting the economy, and all government operations eventually. The time to act is NOW!
Looking to communicate with like minded people.
seeking to put together a group of talented professionals with different talents and skills.
Security in numbers.
I am starting to gather the essentials but would be easier if a group of us had different items to store.
Hope to find some like minded people.
Hello all, I’m Jess & I’m a 34 year old mother of 2 daughters (8 years & 4 years). I’ve been prepping for a few years now, I have food, water & some supplies.
I worked in the health field for over 10 years as a medical assistant in urgent care/home nurse, I only left last year to care for family.
Right now I’m very concerned with what our nation is facing & want to protect my girls, my only problem is I do not have a bug out location. I know most of you will not give this a second thought because you don’t know me at all & I do not blame you for that at all, but I’m just hoping someone out there can help me & my girls take refuge somewhere safe, this is my hail Mary.
I’m in a large home now, with too many people to isolate us here & we have no family that can take us in. We need to be with people who take this lifestyle serious & lessen the threat, instead of increasing it.
I’d like to leave to that location as soon as agreed upon/as necessary if threat becomes more severe, to prevent any risk of infection from this virus.
I offer manual labor, health care & knowledge, child care, rent, cooking, stocking, & am able to defend myself/others (Qualified as Sharpshooter in the Army) if ever needed. I’m very hardworking, loyal, smart & quick in a crisis situation.
If this is something you would even consider, please contact me & we can Facetime or talk over the phone to discuss any concerns/details! Thank you so much!
Anyone in Ohio that can help me figure out where to take refuge for the times coming?
We are a older couple who have been doing this for about twenty years. Just wondering if there are more like us who would like to share ideas either by email or other means, ie this site. Let us know.
Hello. Interested in finding a like minded group to be prepared for whatever may come. Have various skills including rough carpentry, butcher skills, LEO firearms instructor, 1 time assistant chef, Some small medical training, and more. Currently 50 years old and wife is 43, no kids. Recently started into this and getting supplies as time and $ allow. Open minded on learning or teaching skills as needed.
We have been the site for training and supplies in this area for 10 years. There are no entrance fees and no fees for prepper style vendors. The Southeast Texas/Southwest Louisiana Crisis Preparation and Sustainable Living Expo is held in Orange Texas on February 7-8th 2020. The venue is at 3274 Little Cypress Drive but the sponsors are preppers from all over the area. If you want more information you can contact David Turner at [email protected] or call (409) 330-3623. You can find our new Facebook page at Crisis Preparation Expo Orange Texas. The classes run all day and are about 45 minutes long. These classes are also free unless you choose to buy supplies from an instructor.
It seems all the posts for Florida are very old posts. Are there no more preppers in these areas?
Will join or start a “local” group if I can link up with anyone in this area. Southern TN is “local” as is Huntsville, Lake Guntersville, Stephenson, Gurly, and the general area.
looking for like minded people. I’m located in the Irwin area. My wife still thinks I’m crazy lol, so just looking for others to discuss topics and what not.
Hi folks. I’m looking for a prepper community in Montgomery county TX.
I have plenty of knowledge and experience in many areas. Would like to find a small community to live in that has good values and like to work together with learning and teaching others in the community. My hobbies are cooking, fixing things, and organizing things. Yeah kinda odd. I love organizing stuff.
Well let me know if your in my area

We have 12 acres of pasture land/woods with deep well and acre pond looking for others to discuss originating a group or joining a group in Stanly County NC. We are former members of a group in NC that we felt was too far away to be practical. Needless to say we have stores of supplies and would ask that others have or start collecting same. We are committed Christians and seek other followers.

Hi there, I posted back in 2017 that i was putting my mother in a nursing home and i was looking for a group to join. Well, She is about to die so i will be ready to move in early spring
I have an idea of what is coming as i have studied Prophecy and Geopolitics for years, 59 Years old now and in relatively good health
God seems to be calling his people to the Ozarks area, Southern Mo and Northern AR Which is where i will hopefully end up, Although Northern Idaho seems to be an option as well
I have the usual collection of survival equipment, Some of which i know how to use and some i don’t, Too busy working.
I saw a response to Ann that said the most important thing in a group is “Trust” I am trustworthy and a Bible believing Christian, A simple man who just wants some peace and quiet. I do have three cats and they are non negotiable, My only family
You can contact me at [email protected] if you have any interest, Thanks and God Bless
Looking to start a group in area. If so leave a comment and i will respond. Thank you.
