Greeting Friends,

I am seeking those with a preparedness mindset in SE Portland, Milwaukie and Clackamas areas. I would like to build a solid prepper community in this area that can hopefully develop into a MAG as time goes on. I would like to do things like run Drills, scenarios or just share knowledge. If you are interested, or have any questions for me that cannot be posted here please email me at: [email protected]

 

sincerely,

Soul

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

Hi Everyone, If 2019 was not enough, election year 2020 portends to be quite another raucous year.  Are y’all prepared for whatever comes our way.  Sending out a general notice to see if there’s interest in meeting.  Determine what we all or don’t have in common.  Stuff, yes.  Skills, that too.  And, oh ya, survival (is that too touchy of a subject?).  If so, maybe this is not for you.

Let’s kick the New Year off running.

 

Sincerely, Spurtwo.

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 PM and leave your email address.

Let’s talk.

Hi prepper’s Ive been a member here for about 10 years Ive tried looking to join a established group and previously tried to start a group with mixed success.Ive got my own place now and it is a good one IMO my nearest neighbors are good ones but are 3 miles away. A recent ladder slip that nearly broke my leg and just getting a little older in general have got me thinking again that I need a group closer or at the least a good neighbor.

What I am looking for is a small group that want to ready a BOL location in the high desert of NE Nevada near to where my location is I even have a couple 10 acres blocks I could sell for this if wanted.This group would use this location as a weekend getaway, hunting camp, training camp or just somewhere to get away and relax etc until such time as its needed for a BOL.

This area is good for many reasons and its not as dry and forbiding as most of the state Im pretty much at treeline so there is firewood available water table is relatively shallow 50-200 feet. several natural springs within a couple miles.

It Is very Isolated 45 minutes drive to nearest very small town about 2.5 hours to Elko and while at the moment this can be difficult when the place is needed for a BOL it could be perfect providing natural isolation that “tourists” are unlikely to stumble across.

Also job climate in Elko county is great if someone might be looking to move to the area.I could provide some suggestions if anyone is interested.

Apart from being a good neighbor who will look out for neighbors and friends I have many other skills that I could bring to the group blacksmithing,off grid power,small animal hunbandry,mechanical,reloading,ham and much more.

If anyone here is interested please reply here but here also

Hi, I am looking for a group to join or even just some friends like minded. I would consider myself a newbie to it all. I’ve been into it but just started about a year ago. I am moving back home to South Georgia, so anything in the state or close to my area would be great.

For those who want to know a little about me. I am trained Security Consultant/Officer I have been working in this field for 4 years. I am enrolling into EMT school this upcoming year. I am willing to teach what I know and learn in the fields I lack. For more information PM me.

Hello friends! I am somewhat new to the “prepper lifestyle” having only been really into it for a few years now. I still consider myself a newbie. My wife and I will probably be moving to rural eastern Kentucky next year and I’m looking for like-minded folks in or near Elliott County – either alone or part of an existing group – with whom to form a Mutual Assistance Group (MAG) or something similar. When the “S” hits the fan – however that might happen – those who are part of a group will fare better than the “lone wolves.” If you are in that area and want to chat, please post here.

I’m not much for social media and that sort of thing, but I thought I’d give this a try. I will try to check back often. Hopefully we can get a conversation started.

Hello, I am in Livingston TX. Just getting started with prepping on a budget. Born in 61. Not looking to be part of the insurrection, but I intend to be here after. Firepower is not my problem. Just getting started. I have a little food, water plan, etc. Divorced with adult kids. looking for like minded individuals. Not looking for supplies, looking for a network/community. Still Christian, but lost long ago. Conservative. Sound like a fit?

Existing Site in SouthEastern Oklahoma seeking individual, couple or very small group

What I’m all about:

I’m a male in my mid-40’s living off-grid in much the same fashion I would if TSHTF. If the end of the world occurred tomorrow, I wouldn’t 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 my scheming and plotting started in the late 90’s.

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 seems 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(though not as much or as well as I could), devise methods to contend with my needs based on what’s onhand, etc…

I’m on a rather small piece of property(6 acres) adjacent to a river, lots of ‘feral’ land and few neighbors. It’s very rural, 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 optimal location 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. Making space for a camper, yurt or other temporary accommodations, if needed, would not be a huge ordeal.

My personal experience has lent me the opinion that large groups are too inherently flawed… and too prone to failure- Too many heads to bang together and it always seems money is the root of the greatest number of issues.

I’m not concerned about ‘your skill set’ or what you might bring to the table. In my opinion, most of us under-estimate some and over-estimate even more of our own abilities, needs, etc… without having them put to the test. Having ‘mad canning skillz’ while Walmart’s still open is one thing. Figuring out how to preserve food without an infinite supply of lids and rings is entirely another.

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(like working, hah) at least long enough to 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.

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

or contact me here.

Let’s set up some dialogue and see if we can find a mutually beneficial situation.

 

Good luck out there.

I have a small parcel of land here in Wilkes County which is located midway between Augusta and Athens.
This is a small rural area which is ideal for this sort of thing.
I am located out in the county which is where you want to be, far enough from town and isolated enough to provide the preferred security yet close enough to town that it is no problem making supply runs when necessary.
I am not looking to create a large group as the larger the group the greater the risk of being noticed.
I am only looking for maybe a maximum of 6 people (5 + myself).
Because this will be a very close nit group I will be very picky about who I allow to come here.
The more skills and knowledge you have, and the more you bring to the table, the greater your chances.
Slackers and lazy people need not bother contacting me. If you want all the benefits of a group without putting in the effort then you are definitely not what I’m looking for.
Interested parties PM me and let’s talk.

For my family and me, election night will be a decision point to accelerate our bug out plans. We live in the mid-Atlantic, too close to Mordor. We don’t want to wait around for things to devolve. So, we are looking for real estate in very remote areas, and would prefer to be in a group of Christians/Western values with as sustainable a mix of skills and resources as practical. 6 of us: 50’s and kids centered about 10yo. We’d like to start planning and organizing now with a go/no go decision Nov 2020. Please consider getting a Librem 5 phone and a protonmail email address for now.

I found land for my family and friends and currently getting it set up. NOT looking for others to move in. Just reaching out to see if there are other like-minded CHRISTIANS near me to add another layer of security (numbers). Must have a firm foundation in their faith/relationship with Christ, and have something to bring to the table (survival knowledge, carpentry, mech. skills, farming, self defence, beans and bullets, etc.) If SHTF then it’s good to have help, good to have separate locations to go, STRENGTH IN NUMBERS)

“And if someone overpowers one person, two can resist him. A cord of three strands is not easily broken.”  Ecclesiastes 4:12

What I bring to the table: Born-again Christian, Combat Vet, JOAT, etc. (more info provided if you PM me.)

God bless all who this reaches, and for those who this applies to… look forward to see what God has in store.

I have been on this site a while. I see a lot of potential scams and even more hair-brained ideas, by people who probably know less than you do. Bull shit can get you in a real bad spot. I hear of people taking others in if they”meet Criteria”, meaning you bring in resources, whether it money or material or even your time, and when it hits they can just lock you out. That’s is a serious issue.

Invest your time on seeking a few sites off the path…. Meaning it is a idea to think a fortified home or farm will withstand it if things turn south. People get hungry, and people with like minded ideas.. being hungry… will team up with others to come take what you have… the mobs will scavenge their area and travel further and down the remote roads in hopes of finding a score. You may beat them back but assuredly they will be back in greater numbers and better equipped.

The best thing you can do is stay flexible, learn to tap trees for water or purify a mud hole into clean drinking water. Alternatively learn to follow a stream to it’s source to get to a safer quality of drinking water. Not having water is your number one problem. Lot of ways to make shelters, and with the region warming up noticeable you have more warm weather than not, which of course is a dual sided sword..

Large groups will inevitable fail, inwards fighting and different views, especially religious people vs non religious… get someone thinking the end has come and they may try to hasten your exit. these little things are what people tend to overlook.

Anyone can hunt, learn to snare and fish… Once someone hears a gunshot the hungry hunter is going to come investigate and maybe get your kill. Snares are silent and draw less attention, and done right you can camouflage them well.  Fishing in sheltered areas limit’s the visibility of people seeing you. Little things.. little things. spend all day fishing to be robbed of your family’s meal would be disappointing. But the idea of my family starving and your family starving, people tend to rationalize their actions by thinking you already have some food stocked or you can just catch more.

Learning new skills now with little test projects.. They can really pay off. Did you know less that a twentieth of a percent of the population knows the skills to actually get a decent crop of tobacco to grow? even less know how to dry it correctly so that it is of a decent grade. So for you smokers you are outta luck, but if you learn the skill now you can have tobacco and it will be a great trade item.

Trade partners… Always meet somewhere away, never come alone, and be sure to never be followed home. Basic rules… If you can’t hold on to something you will not don’t need it. This sounds paranoid I agree, but think about not having nothing.. In 6 months 90% of the population would be dead, and not just from hunger.. Disease, disposing of waste properly and not leaving it around will lessen the chances of diseases and infections..

So when you look into a group ask about some of these questions, and Remember a good group needs you as much as you need them. Learn some skills, beekeeping  for honey and wax, hopefully I don’t have to explain why those two are very important, husbandry, gardening, fletching, how to sharpen a knife correctly..

I am setting up a very small group, have two others as of now. Sadly the rule of two does not work well with odd numbers, and we thinking 6 is a perfectly rounded number. 2 for home/ 2 for gathering/ and 2 for the alternating task. the skills we have are pretty well rounded, and some task will be even better with more people having them. We are a mobile group, like the Indians, and want to find people who see the benefit in this. being tied down to a single place makes you vulnerable no matter how tough you think you are or how clever you think you are.

So any like minded people should think about this bit of info and if you see the validations to these issues you should hit me up and we can open a line of communication. Tell us about you and we will do the same…
