We are a Christian based group that are centered in northeastern Illinois, mostly in and around McHenry county.  We are looking to add a few more serious survivalist/preppers to broaden our skill sets.  We already have professional medical, building skills, law enforcement and ex-military members, but we can always use more.  We are NOT and never will be a militia group, but we will defend ourselves.  If your interested in finding a group where you can learn, teach and grow, contact us to learn more and to be considered for membership.  I can be reached at [email protected]

Hi!

I’m new to Central Ohio from the East Coast and I’m in search of people in the area who are willing to share their knowledge with a chick who’s eager to learn.

I have some general knowledge about various survival skills, but I’ve never had the opportunity to practice them with someone who is knowledgeable and experienced. I’m looking to learn the following:

–archery
–fishing and cleaning fish
–Local edible/medicinal wild plant identification and harvesting
–Carving
–Knife sharpening

I do have knowledge about various things that I’d be happy to share, although I’m not sure how relevant my knowledge is to SHTF scenarios….

Baking/cooking from scratch, health insurance, basic sewing, childcare /child development, psychology, floral arrangements… ummm…. I can help you decode what your wife might want from you? I know enough about a lot of little things, so ask me and maybe I know stuff you’re interesting in?

Hello fellow Zonies, I am currently based in Valley of the Sun. Looking to buy my own off-grid property soon and would like to network with others who have experience with setting up/using off-grid power and utilities systems. Not looking to get scammed, pay off someone else’s property or join any groups. Just looking to network and meetup with like-minded others, exchange knowledge and train/develop skills together, especially that which pertains to living off-grid full-time. Please send a private message to my inbox on this website if any interest.

I am new here. While I have been a prepper for many years, it has always been in a sort of vacuum (member of 1). My partner (of 5 years) is on board with preperations, but as a group of two, we are very vulnerable.

What outlets for gathering does the Georgia community have? Are there any annual events in Georgia or group meetings? I respect other’s privacy, so not looking to connect right away with anybody, but eventually would be nice to make some connections to people within say a 25 mile radius. Let’s just say I am in the Stone Mountain area, but not IN Stone Mountain. Enough said. The town of Stone Mountain has it’s own fair share of issues.

I look to events that deal with farming, old times and self sufficiency, but wonder if there are any “prepping” type shows that make it to Georgia? Agrirama (Tifton) is one of my favorite places to visit, but that is quite a bit South for me now.

I think we live in a great area, with an appropriate number of neighbors (not too densely populated). Problem is I have NO idea how many of them are like minded or even able bodied?

TENNESSEE – We have 100 acres with 14 homes and 35 one acre lots out in the country that we are turning into a Christian preppers retreat. This was a catfish farm before we purchased it in the late 80’s. Since then, until recently we have been renting the homes out. Now we are selling them- $39,000 – to $285,000. One acre lots are also available with rights to our 11 acre lake and ponds for fishing as well as other areas of the property (we are carrying some owner financing – we do not owe anything on our property). We have an abundant supply of what may be the best water in the world. We have 7 wells on our property that we can not pump dry. One well is a 3″ commercial well that I have been told pumps one million gallons in a 24 hour period. God has blessed us with one of Tennessee’s most beautiful properties. I too am in the ministry. Have been ministering in the U.S. and in missionary work for the past 49 years. Please contact me and I will give you more info, along with our password protected website. We are not advertising where we are located or the name of our property. We were planning on doing this by “invitation only” but realized we need to broaden this to include others. We are “balanced” preppers. We have a lot of plans for the property that is going to be a blessing to those who either live here permanently or have this property for their getaway when it becomes necessary. We have a chapel in the middle of it. We would love to share additional info with you as well as other like minded fellow Believers. Please share how I can get in touch with you and I will share with you my telephone number so we can talk.

Hello! We are a very small group at the moment, just getting up from smaller ideas right now. We are looking to make our group bigger and start building. I haven’t found anyone other than our group so far that would be willing to build with us. Each of us has a particular set of skills, ranging from engineering to construction and welding. We have some preparations made already. We are open to many skill levels, you must be open minded, okay with the possibility of things changing and willing to work with families. Let me know if you’re interested!

My name is Scott and I’m  looking to join a preppers group in the Kansas area. Like the title says, I’m new at this. A little about me, I’m a retired volunteer Fire fighter, drove flatbed tractor trailer for many years, and I’m in construction. I’m also a licensed amateur radio operator. You can email me at km4pmp2015 at gmail dot com

I am new to this site, but not new to prepping. I’m 35 and a combat vet from the Army, and know how to live very simple if need be. I also used to be a part of a training unit that tested out all the new gear that companies wanted to sell the Army, so my unit lived in the field primarily in the deserts of NM, for months at a time. I have a purpose built off-roading rig that stays 90% prepped. I am a mechanic of 15 years. I am a normal guy that has a normal job. I wear golden handcuffs just like the rest of you. But frankly, I can see the writing on the wall. Things aren’t going to get better than they are now. With all the crooked politicians in office, this country is a giant powder keg at a fireworks show. Odds say it’s only a matter of time before something sets it off. I have my own set-up and plans, and would like to mesh them in with an already prepared group. Contact me by messaging me on here or at coloradoprepper @ yahoo . com

I’m gonna get right to the point. I’ve been researching and collecting evidence for years, and now, the evidence points to the coming times.  Its not WAR thats going to be our problem folks.   All you have to do is go outside and look up to see what our problem is.  Our government is covering it up right now! everyday!  I’ve always been a huge skeptic and driven to prove things no matter true or false.  This…   this has proven to be true, and we are running out of time.  I have tons of evidence, videos, pictures, you name it!   and these ABOVE ground survival groups are gonna be your coffin!   We need to get a underground system started and needs to be started yesterday.   We really don’t have time, but there is no choice.   If we’re lucky we have a max of 1 year from now.   ANYONE who has a brain  and not a complete nut job feel free to PM me I’m in Statesville, but we’re looking to create this underground system in Granite Falls.

 

Hopefully people are still coming here.

 

May god be with you all.

Tom.

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:

  1. 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.
  2. 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.

  1. Hello everyone I am actively seeking to join a group or even team up in forming a new group in southern wv. I know most groups only want memebers that they deem an asset to the team so I will briefly list a few of my skills that I can personally bring to any team.

ASE certified master auto mechanic

Wv licensed paramedic as well as wv cert. Emt-miner

Cert. Apprentice electrician

Ordained Minister as well as wedding/funeral officiant

experienced farm hand

Combat trained (hand to hand as well as firearms training)

Extensive knowledge of southern wv mountains.

And more…..

I do have my own supplies and gear but only enough to supply and defend my wife and I at this time. My wife would also consider joining the right group as she is a trained medical professional as well as other skills.

If any of these skills interest you or your group please contact me for further discussion.

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.
