Looking for a gig or situation. Skill set includes underground utility construction, EMT, FIREFIGHTER, Farm Ranch hand / Operator. Arborist.

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.

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.

Thanks

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.
