Hello everyone, me and some friends of mine are wanting to put together a group of people that would like to go in together on property. Whether its property that we buy together and put in trust, or that one of us has and we all caretake and provide for, and prep that property turning it into a community for us and our descendants (those who found the group). We’ve been looking into various properties in the southern part of Colorado (San Luis valley) and have determined it’s possible to get property fairly cheap (around 1000 an acre, sometimes less) if anyone in Colorado, or the surrounding area’s is interested in this, to join with us in this endeavor, to help purchase, prep and live there, whether permanently or partially, please PM me, we would love to hear from you.

My wife and I are moving down to Missouri from Alaska in October. We are looking for other preppers to get in contact with. I would like to start a group to prep with. I have decent knowledge of setting up security and weapons as well as some basic survival skills. I am currently in the Army as an 11B so itd he great to meet up with other vets possibly.

I’m just testing the waters to see if there’s anyone in the Odessa/Blue Springs/anywhere else to the east of the KC area interested in starting a group. I’m a second generation prepper, a Christian, an old punk rocker and a single father of two.

    Howdy y’all. Been here a while. Of course as most of us, doing our things. I’m in need of searching for some folks to help me out on a twelve acre off-grid homestead that is a work in progress, primitive by modern standards but with amenties. It’s an hour East of Springfield near Baker Creek, Sigma 3, flea markets, animals swaps and an area with loads of resources and things to do, not to mention Amish/Mennonite country on all sides. If you don’t have a place of your own, it’s just a matter of connecting the dots and sharing the effort. If you’re interested, give me a shout at [email protected] or just google my username. I’ve had it for a while. I have a youtube channel too. Blessings to you and yours, Steve.

    Looking to form a group from Bellingham to Blaine. Not an “ugh Neanderthal” group. Serious professionals who can plan for survival in an urban environment. This would be a very large group to band together. Many professional disciplines, skills, and resource levels. People who can plan on a large scale with common sense, ability to function under stress and deprivation, and leadership. Military a definite plus.

    Hi, Tomgirl and I are currently in southwest Colorado. We are researching some lands to buy that are mountainous and hopefully with river frontage. Bordering BLM or national forest would be ideal. We’re in our twenties. I have an inheritance with which to buy land and set up an off-grid location. Have not decided on exactly where we want to settle as yet, but considering New Mexico, Arizona, Colorado and maybe even California . Feel free to write us at [email protected]
    We would like some input on locations most favorable.

    Hey there. I’m new here ,just joined yesterday.
    I live in Colorado and am interested in forming a “community” one day soon.
    I am hoping to find rational people here that,like me, am fully awake and cognitively able to read the “tea leaves” of our times.
    Nice meeting you all

    Hello, I am active duty military and have noticed there are a number of careers that do not support the “group” standard. Military, truckers, excess traveling careers, or people that generally can not constantly dedicate to a specific group for whatever reason. It is not fair to a well established group to accept people that may in a few years leave. With all that being said my goal is to reach out to people in these situations and see where we can go from there, honestly there is not an over arching mission other than just to communicate and possibly network with people or to have “a buddy” wherever our travels may take us. Please reach out to me with opnions, concerns, or just to chat. [email protected]

    Are there any active preppers on Whidbey Island. I very interested in exchanging skills/knowledge and share some ideas. We don’t have to meet although that is possible. I have various skill sets and I continue to learn. Just jeave a message.

    ******UPDATED******

    It’s been almost a year since this was originally posted. I’m still a prepper although I consider myself more of a suburban homesteader. I don’t have acreage, but I have chickens, fruit trees and a large garden with hoop house and grow room. I could probably survive with my family for 90 days without assistance barring attacks from a large well armed group. I have some skills but I have much too learn. You can contact me here and we can chat.

    Hello everyone! I am a prepper from Arizona and I was wondering who would be interested in networking? I’m looking for trustworthy people to join forces and go in on a “prepper” venture. I want to start a completely self-sustaining off grid town/settlement to relocate to. I have designs in draft stages and I need other input. Thanks in advance for your two cents!

    Revised—

    WHO WE ARE-

    We are a family of four.  I am 37 yr old male, my wife is 36 and we have two sons 14 / 7.  I own a construction company in Maine and will be semi retiring within the next year, maybe two if I can stand it.  I am very skilled at many jack of all trades things.  I know that doesn’t put me at the top of most lists of skill sets needed so I will list some of what I have done.

    Rebuild 1970 backhoe / Build my high end custom off grid house / built my barn, mini barn, shelter, septic, 1,000ft driveway, clearing for house / Spent last 10 years living completely off grid with solar (I am poor in the electrical skills department) / Built my construction company from scratch to be able to retire by age 38 / I train with my firearms and tac gear, currently hiring pro trainer for private lessons.

    While this is not a list of my skills, it is a list of things I have accomplished with skills I have and have acquired.  My main focus now on skill building is with tactical firearms training which I am doing every month and on the side at my personal range.  I am also use to extremely high stress environments due to doing construction for 15 years.  My wife has pioneer skills like making bone broth on our wood stove and sewing, natural medicine, soap making, excellent garden skills, and is great at animal husbandry.  She does everything for vet work with our goats including giving them shots, and giving birth to their kids.  We raise goats, rabbits, and chickens. All by her initiative and I essentially am her farm hand.  My two sons are home schooled.  (by my wife) They are typical children.  Though they do help us daily with chores and are not completely ruined by the school system.

    We live in Maine.  You could learn a bit about me by looking up some of my Maine posts.  (Maine retreat post deleted.) We currently have a retreat.  Probably one of the better locations as we are a mile down a dirt road off grid surrounded by 3,000 acres.  We have lived here for 10 years and built the place from scratch.  I am strongly considering a move to WV.  My reasoning behind this is due to a few different things.  I don’t really like the idea of harsh winters for a SHTF situation.  It is not good for long term survival and patrol defense.  Also we have a poor water issue here at my retreat.  Another reason why I would leave is because I struggle with winter blues and would like to find somewhere that has more of a mild winter with temps in the 40’s and 50’s like I see in WV.  Also I have sought and sought to build a dedicated group here and no one has had any interest in joining.  So I am at the point where in approx 1 year I will be able to financially uproot.  I post this now at this time because it would be good to build a relationship with a new group now and strongly work towards this as I assume that this is going to take some time.  Not that I am trying to drag this out.

    Our preps are complete for the most part to a high standard.  Our list of supplies would far exceed 90% of most.  The best way that I can say this is that we are 1 family and have essentially prepared for a small group due to no one joining us I have laid up for my neighbors without them knowing as I just did not have another solution.  If you seem like a good fit for us I will gladly share more info on this sensitive topic, but just know that our preps will exceed your expectations.   We even have an “ace card” that would help to financially take care of us and a whole group for lifes basic needs in the event of a collapsed economy as long as there is still some kind of commerce and shipping even if the cost of everything is inflated by a dollar collapse.  No mooch’s please we are not rich. Just have an investment that is not subject to dollar or stock crash.

    We are christians.  I have been a believer in Jesus for 19 years.  I have a mixed doctrinal back ground, but am very solid and not full of wacky teachings.  My wife has been a christian for 14 years.  We would like to find more fellowship where we move as the church here is pretty much just an in and out non participant entertainment atmosphere.  I can get along with brothers from most denominational back grounds as long as their beliefs are not cultic or new age like.  If there is something that we don’t agree on I am humble and still able to get along as long as it is not related to salvation or who Jesus is which I have conservative / early christian roots regarding.  I do love to converse about many different biblical topics though.

    Although I am not fond of the current state of our country, (quite embarrassed actually) I am a patriot and believe in the constitution of the united states.

    Our health overall is good.  I could use some jogging, although I am physically fit from doing farm work and construction work for years.  I am not over weight.  Essentially can not put on weight as I could use to gain a few pounds in the Maine winters.  My sons are typical healthy children.  My wife overall is not unhealthy, but she does have limes. (from a tick bite) She has been doing some super cleansing and major dietary work with some natural health physicians to flush out the lime.  In less than 4 months it has been working showing night and day improvement.  So all and all this is not an issue.  Just want to be upfront about it.

    WHAT WE SEEK-

    We seek a well established small/medium sized group.  We would really prefer the people of this group to have christian background and beliefs and good moral ethics.  I am hoping that in the group some of the skill sets would be some military and leo and medic skills.  The groups retreat should have extremely ideal defensive location well away from big cities.  I would not want to be taking a step back in the quality of what we have for a location at my current home. Group must have 1-3 years supplies for all members and be getting together on a regular basis to train.  Must be in a similar position of your preps as I am or we would not be a good fit.  I am not supplying a group although I am not selfish either and realize that we all come together on this and form a group with some who have strengths in other areas.  Not a group with just an informal bug out plan of a few families with no organization or forward moving goals.   Ideally the members of this group would be close in friendship and like a small family.  I am only interested in groups where every member is like minded and active in some way within the group.  I am not interested in groups that just invite anyone.  I would hope that you would be very careful in your selection of people to join as this is not a free for all type of thing that anyone even reading on this forum should be like even though I see some of that here.  I realize how hard it is to find people who are trust worthy and also have skills and motivation/ability to prep.   It would be preferred if there were some kind of pre-established bylaws for times of peace and post shtf.  Also we would be of the mindset that it would be necessary to store the majority of our preps at the retreat as moving them after an EMP event would not be desirable if possible.  Being from the other side of the fence when it comes to owning a retreat we see the necessity of these things and even though we don’t have them established here it is something we desire and see would only help for smooth operation.  All of what belongs to us will be labeled so that it is easy to identify in the event of a future move although that is not what I am interested in.   I want to do this right and don’t have time for a mistake here.  We do not want anyone who is affiliated with any racist, cult, or anti government type groups.  Also even though I would like it if there is military / leo skills within the group I am not looking for a militia type group, though I do think it is extremely important that we train as a group for patrol/security. I think that it is extremely important that there is a multi leadership and not a single commanding king withing the group.  Although I do realize that in many cases executive decisions will need to be made.  Jonathan Hollerman’s books talk a lot about this.

    WHAT WE BRING-

    (Actually SOME of what we bring, as I would never list it all on here.  I only write this so that you can make a judgement to the level of our preps.  The things that I write should let you know where we are at.)

    Two EMP proof vehicles diesel and gas. Foot powered grain thresher. Deep well hand pump. Shallow well pump.  5 dakota alerts. 1,000 jars with ten x times that in lids.  Diesel generator.  Diesel fuel trailer.  Retreat size supply of medical items.  Retreat size supply of many other things I feel I should probably not mention here, I am speaking about the core essentials.  We also have 15 goats and half a dozen meat rabbits we would want to bring. At least some of the goats.  Storage for all of these items could be an issue.  Some of it can go in a conex box and some would need to have stabilized temps. We would also bring my skid steer and all of the attachments- in new condition.  And could bring my old backhoe if there wasn’t a machine to dig on site. And the list goes on.

    MY PLAN-

    My plan is to continue to do what I am doing and prep where I am.  I am going to continue to run my company in order to bring in enough cash flow to buy a house and make the expensive move and also to have enough to start another business when I get to a new location.  By the time that I move I will not have to work, but I think it would be irresponsible and lazy being only 38 or 39 to completely retire.  I will try to make a business that would benefit our preps in some way.

    Let me know if we seem like a good fit and we can consider the same and if all works out we can begin to entertain the possibility of making a move in the upcoming year.

    PM me and leave an email on the private message. I will then email you from my email.

    ADDENDUM-

    At this time we have not joined a group and would also be interested in single families.  We are currently seeking to buy a large piece of property this summer in Southern WV to begin to build our retreat location.  So if you are interested in starting something small with us from the ground up then please contact me and if it is a good fit for both of us then perhaps we can move forward.

    I’ve been thinking a lot lately about how we will survive a disaster of great magnitude. We are planning on buying land/home in West Virginia in the next several years with emphasis on retiring and homesteading. I want a group to affiliate with but want to live independently. Does this site support such goals? I of course want to affiliate so that if needed we will all join to support, protect, house, and enable a safe comfortable existence. I am very family focused and of course anticipate my family to join us in case of any situation warranting refuge.

    I’m not a part of a group but I’ve been prepping for a long time. I have a remote 23 acre farm located in SE Idaho with gravity fed spring and gravity irrigation, orchard, chickens, large garden area, alt. power, etc. Home and farm will easily accommodate 20+ people but I am interested in finding only a few families with like minded ideas yet different skill sets.

    I live in Salt Lake City area, 2.5 hour drive from my farm. I’m looking for individuals or families with the following skill sets. HAM radio, tactical/military experience, diesel mechanic skills, farming, medical skills, etc. My goal is to create a small group that can learn from each other and prep the farm a weekend a month for any type of emergency. No freeloaders. Looking for independent people who live normal lives but are serious about having a prepared bug-out location. Reach out to me if you’ve been looking for the perfect location to safely evacuate your family to when things go bad. vitamintracy at yahoo dot com
