Hello,

My family and I have been prepping for around 10 years now. I have acquired 90% of my families preps from Firearms/Ammo, Generator both Gas/Propane and solar, food and water cache to last 12 months, medical supplies to last for several years. I am a 25 year RN currently working on my FNP. I am a master gardener and I am skilled in raising live stock. My firearms skills are at a master’s level and I can repair just about any firearm.  We are looking for a stable preppers group that we can grow with.

Openings at Survival Sanctuary near Mt. St. Helens, SW Washington/NW Oregon

We are a little private Sanctuary in the foothills of Mt. St. Helens, east of Kelso, WA. House at 300′ elevation, 5 forested acres (alder, maple, cedar, fir, blackberries), directly adjacent to millions of acres of uninhabited forest land where we can freely roam (deer, elk, coyote, cougar) We are edge-of-the-wilderness based, not city, town, or farm-based, although we grow a large garden.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, (actual) disease plague (by self-isolation), climate disruption (although our weakness is forest fire), and general financial/commercial/political collapse (by self-sufficiency). We are also in fairly good shape for most Black Swans (earthquake, etc.) The Sanctuary is prepared to make the transition to complete self-sufficiency if necessary (gardening, hunting, fishing, herbal medicine).

Current members include a mental-health therapist, a mechanical engineer, a medical pathology assistant, and a plant nursery worker. We have many other skills among us.

In new people, we are more interested in maturity and good values than any certain skills, but you must be fairly well educated (for your age), open to learning, and willing to teach what you know. Emotional stability, intelligence, patience, respect, cooperation, and intuition are highly valued. We are NOT interested in control freaks, politicians, chatter boxes, or the judgmental, impulsive, lazy, or defensive.

Good health and mobility, and strong immune systems, are necessary. No drug dependencies (including recreational), significant food allergies, or claustrophobia. Politics and religion must be kept strictly personal. No costs (other than your own gear), but you must have transportation to get here (unless very close).

The Sanctuary may or may not be a residential situation for new members during normal times. For some members, it is a retreat location where we gather to explore, work, learn, and play. All members stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when necessary. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We would only consider youth who are capable of grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age about 8).

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion. At all times we operate completely in “family” mode, never in “landlord-tenant” mode. We will keep all communications confidential. Write to zimindrixli at the mail service that is a cheer of success or discovery.

I’m 33, male, in good health, and have no prepping skills.  My work has been in mental health, technical support.  I’ve just recently realized how bad things are and am looking to see if there are groups that accept untrained people this late in the game.  All I have is some food stockpiled, a firearm, and some basic supplies.  I can pay for any of my own supplies.  It’s knowledge and experience I need.  I appreciate any advice.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding its monthly meeting at Noon PM on Saturday, March 27, 2021 at Sturdivant Park, Hwy 42S, Coquille, OR, 97423.  We will be in the big gazebo. Dress warm and bring a chair. 
 
The main topic is “HOW TO USE YOUR $1,400 STIMULUS TO PREPARE”.  This will be a round table discussion of how to use your stimulus check to prepare.  Topics will include debt reduction, saving, what to buy, how to invest, etc… The world as we knew it is no longer and we must adjust accordingly.   
 
SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.
 
This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas.  It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not depend on receiving outside help.  Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

We are now taking applications to join our non-denominational sustainable Christian Community in the mountains of BC.  A Statement of Faith has been adopted and a comprehensive vision and method of self governance in accordance with Biblical principles, based on the Law of Love is being drafted by ourLeadership council.

The 200 acre remote property is a twohour drive from the city and includes 11 fenced off acres with gardens, orchards, pastures, barn, a large communal gathering/eating/office building and housing for at least 30 people. All buildings are of the highest workmanship and have been well maintained. There are also laundry facilities, luxury outhouses, four wells, an irrigation system, an industrial workshop with heavy equipment and back up propane generators. Theriverfront wilderness includes a swimming hole, an exquisitely designed house of worship, a 10acrecampground with 5 off grid riverfront cabins and RV sites, multiple outhouses and a central showerhouse.   With food already growing in abundance, sustainability is within reach and labour can be focused on necessities like establishing a greenhouse, garden andbackup power grid.

If you love the Lord, nature and long for a simple lifestyle built on faith, family and community we invite you to contact us at your earliest convenience at [email protected]

I just read through the posts on this string and all seem to be at least months old.  I thought I would start with a little background about me and see if there may be others who have/are similarly experiencing what I am.   I am a Christian, have watched the world’s events for years, and have recently moved to NWA as I felt lead, by the Lord, to do so.  So, I retired, packed up, and moved.  I am here a couple of months, getting acclimated and feel an intense desire to help in the preparation(s) of a place that will be a shelter,  a support, and will supply basic needs for other like minded individuals.  If this sounds familiar, and others are feeling lead accordingly, or would like to talk this through, please let me know.  I don’t have all the answers, only a desire to help as the Lord leads me.   Thank you.  Reply or email me 2021fgm gmail.

Hi,

We are a Homestead located off grid in the aquarius mountains in northwestern Arizona.  We are looking for members who want to be a part of the community, participate in chores and projects and help make self sustaining living a reality for our community.  We have a farm, greenhouse and are finishing our the infrastructure.  We need people who can help and want to live this lifestyle.

Hi all – I’ve been prepping in earnest since the Y2K scare.  I’m an IT Consultant by day (that’s why Y2K freaked me out!) and am an advanced martial arts and self-defense instructor (20+ years).  From storing food, investing in water filtration, and building Faraday cages to store my electronics after an EMP to stockpiling guns & ammo, making my own medical-grade colloidal silver (anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal) and much more, I bring a lot to the table and have invested heavily over the past 20 years.  I have advanced survival skills, first aid skills (plus many first aid supplies), and firearms skills plus other skills – carpentry, electrical, farming, etc.  I have a huge survival library that I have built over the years including information on natural medicinal cures from plants, booby traps, fortification, etc.  I’ve also written several books on survival and self-defense myself.  I can teach others and I am capable of handling much that would be asked of me.

I’m looking for others who are serious about preparing, like-minded and willing to work and invest time and resources in our future together.

I’m looking for like-minded people to join me and my tight-knit group to weather this storm no matter how bad it gets and how long it takes.  We prepare JUST IN CASE.  Not preparing is not an option; that’s why we are in this group.

My biggest gap in my preps is a separate bugout location that can be made ready for long-term survival.  I have alternates, but would love to find someone with decent acreage / land that has one or more water sources on it (stream, lake, pond, well) than can be farmed and fortified.  I have the ability to filter many millions of gallons of water.

Reach out to me at mr.pjcpete @ g m a i l . c o m with the Subject “Prepper Groups Inquiry” if you want to touch base and see if we are a fit to move forward.

I am in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area. (NEPA)

Good luck prepping!

-Pete

Recently lost my wife after a long illness – so looking for a group where I can be an asset – not another mouth to feed. Currently in eastern Wyoming/Black Hills region but location is not important – I’m selling the ranch. 20 year vet (REMF – not a gun fighter) so I know how to take and execute orders and understand/support Chain of Command, I can build/maintain/repair anything to do with structures, grew up on ranches so animal care is fine, have a gun fighter tools, reloading stuff, construction tools/equipment, tractors, livestock, am fit (not taking any drugs of any sort), can work my grown kids into the dirt, financially secure. Looking for a Christian group (no sense rubbing each other wrong) that I can contribute and make a difference. P.S> Yes I can stand watch – I do know which end the rounds come out of. I received a fair bit of training while in (we were expected to guard and defend our own outposts.) I build my own ARs. God Bless, KDC

I have a small ranch in eastern Wyoming (Black Hills area) that I have spent a significant amount of time, money, and labor trying to get ready for the storm blowing down on us.  Still lots to do.. My wife recently passed after a long illness and the kids are all grown and gone.  So it’s just me now.  So if you are interested in building a safe haven with a like minded group please contact me…   Big house with lots of room, trailer house (14×50 ft), RV parking, room to build whatever we want, established garden, livestock.

The pieces are in place – just need the labor, skills, and right attitude to create something for all of us.  And I am follower of Christ so pls keep that in mind but I don’t believe in that PreTrib nonsense – we’re all going to go through the crap that is barreling down on us.

God Bless,

KDC

Hello, I live in Livingston Tx and I am in my 50’s.

I am currently seeking land to set up for when the SHTF…..

If you have land for sale, or wanting to start a group of like minded folks, or already have a group of like minded folks looking for members to join, or just want to talk about what we can do for when the time comes to bug out, I am interested.

I have several skills, can’t say that I am a master of any of them but I am willing to share what I know and learn from those that have skills to share also.

Please send me a reply and we can go from there.

Hello to all!

Looking to meet with like minded good people that understand the importance of preparation for these times. I believe some of us that share intuition truly understand this. Like to hear from you if your in the lower mainland BC.

Thank you

Thinking of forming a group for single, unattached preppers co-op for those that need to lean on another in these hard and soon-to-be, all the more challenging times to come. I’m in northern New England. I will be creating a small grass-roots community that’s self sustainable, not a utopia (that’s what the real Heaven is for) but, this community makes it easier to live and thrive, stand a chance to better survive the approaching hard times.
We will barter, teach each other, learn skills such as foraging, food storage, ice house creation, etc… there can be Bible fellowship, herbal medicine classes, recycling and up cycling opportunities… these are a few suggested ideas.
As a member with us, and willing participants must be skilled, and have something to offer and bring to the table that can and will benefit the co-op.
There could also be a natural opportunity to grow friendship, chances of courtship to form couples and traditional marriage partnership.

 

If interested contact me

Christian Group looking for a few qualified individuals to add to a 2A group.  Over 100 mountainous acres, on a dead-end one-lane road natural springs that originate on the land some pasture, and areas for fruit trees.  Good for chickens, goats, and cattle.

My wife and I are Christians retired with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are learning to live a self-sustaining lifestyle full time.  We decided to make a permanent change in our lifestyle to start getting off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid in a secure, secluded area.

I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  We have a lot of tools and equipment to work with.  We are hoping to also get (or build) a sawmill.

We have the basic supplies for over one year.  We started with a camper to live in so we could build a more permanent living structure. We now have a used trailer house on the land some of the others have campers and a house.  I will soon start to build with some type of an earthen structure from one of the following: COB, Hemp, Wood- Chip Lime mix, CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth, Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe utilizing the reactive home concept for a living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling) as taught by Bill Mollison long before Mike Reynolds’ Earth Ship concept ever came along.  We are thinking about building our own CEB press.  We also have the material and are looking to build a metal roof for a building about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I believe biofuel is one answer for renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.

Walapiniea is the only real answer to a year-round renewable food source of vegetables that I am aware of.  Built as a reactive greenhouse.

Walipini, also known as a sunken greenhouse, underground greenhouse, pit greenhouse, or earth-sheltered greenhouse, is a structure with the growing area dug into the ground.

We are utilizing compost toilets and have built two of them so far with good results.

We have a well and a spring box water system in place.  We have designs for a renewable purification system without going to the store for filters.  We built a furnace to make activated charcoal to use with sand.  We have most of the purification system ready to assemble into food-grade 55 gal barrels.

We want and need others to help work on the common area projects preparing them for the group’s use for when it all falls apart.

I am learning more every day and by no means have even scratched the surface so I want to learn all I can from others as well.

We have converted lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights placed in the old 120v light fixtures.  With changes in electrical consumption, we have cut our usage by more than half getting ready to switch to solar and wind with battery storage.

For a lot of us, we use no medications as we are learning to use essential oils, herbs, and supplements hoping to start growing a lot of what we will need.  I am learning how to make tinctures and our own E oils.  As well as canned and fermented foods(the more of this the less refrigeration needed).

I am one of the Vets, Army 73 to 77 was Motor Sgt in Germany.

Our group has construction experience, electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs (built one retrofit roof the size of two-foot ball fields on top of an 82′ high roof), mechanic of older gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi-truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, gunsmith, canning experience with canning equipment farming and tactical, to name some.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen total destruction, civil disorder, rioting, marshal law with state troopers, and the national guard called out while there.  I’ve also seen families who were desperate and not prepared at all along with families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I lived at a mission base 16 years ago with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power, so we ate meat only when we caught or killed it.

Fifteen years ago we lived in a camper for a year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, driving along with the outer bank islands to Beaumont Texas while homeschooling.

We are looking for group members with Christian values to connect with who would then relocate, or that live in the area this will not be an easy process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is important.  A tutanota free email account is a requirement if you choose to start the vetting process after we have our first few exchanges of email and phone calls.  We are not looking for members to just join the group, but who will become a part of the group, forming friendship and trust where we know we have each other’s back or 6 as some say.

We (my family) have served the Lord for 28 years full time without a paying full-time job so we are not rich so if you are looking for someone with a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like a Godly relationship with a hard-working and honest group then we are open to more communications as to how we could fit together.  We need members who can support themselves, work as a team, and are not looking for a free ride or handouts.

Four personal references will be required for each person 18 and older.  If you can’t get 4 references from other than family members don’t even start the vetting process as you are wasting your time.

If you want to talk about someday maybe doing something then find someone who is looking to someday maybe doing something to talk to.

If you are ready to act now, I have much more to share but will do so in a more private way.  So email me so we can talk privately.

Email me and I will send you my phone number.

Hello All,

We are a small family that has been preparing and has a homestead looking for a group in the GR area.   I am not interested in leaving where I am to come and join your place more looking for like minded people in the area to start and form a network together.  We are open to meeting and we have the means to support more people where we are and are willing to meet with anyone who takes prepping or homesteading seriously.

I have been searching for a while now for a group and it seams most are inactive or on the other side of the state which would be no help to us.  Lets start a conversation and help each other share skills, intell and form a MAG. If there is one in this area great please let me know the contact info.

We are a small group in North Metro DFW looking to add vital members.  We are organized and have assigned roles but are looking for redundancy and depth to the group.  We usually meet once a month to discuss group issues and do cross training (skills and knowledge).  We also find time to head out to the range for training; however, we are NOT looking for ‘guns & ammo’ type of preppers.  We are focused on surviving.  We have a BOL location and are developing plans to beef it up for any eventual evacuation/strategic relocation regardless of reason.  

We reserve the right to walk away and extend the same rights for you to walk away.  We had one group member who recently left of his own accord. He accepted a role in the group but did not complete or accomplish any task or request made of him.  This happens.  We are serious about role ownership.  You may be asked to do something you are not comfortable with….we are looking for people that will lean into the challenge, learn, grow, become competent then teach/instruct/present to the group so we are all more educated.  That’s our model.  There is too much to learn for everyone to be an expert in everything.  We assign Primary and Secondary roles. Learning never stops with us.

 
Reply here and we can start the vetting process.  No financial obligations but we have expectations of you and your prepping knowledge/supplies.

The times certainly are getting interesting. We are here in west central montana. This year could be a good year to not be in a city and also have a garden, wood heat, well and most things to get along for a while without going to wal mart.
We are close enough to a town of 30K to work and have amenities and behind us is some wilderness. Can you stay awake from midnight till four AM to watch the security video screen? I feel we will soon be in a economic decline the likes of which most have no knowledge of. If you are just now becoming aware….. than good for you and start burning the midnight oil. If you are staying in a large leftist controlled city with terrorism nightly, that depends on constant impute of goods, services and food and water….I have no words for you. I would love to talk to anyone in person about joining together in a MAG but only in person, no chatter on the insecure internet. Message me or join the free secure email proton mail and send me a message directly at [email protected]

Hello,

I am a 46 year-old female prepper who’s looking for other like minded people to connect with.  I am extremely serious about prepping and looking to join others in a retreat.  Currently, I am in Southeastern Michigan and unintentionally bumped into a guy online who is attempting to organize a group.  However, the problem is that he lives in Florida and we are both having difficulty meeting others who would like to diligently form a unit.  Our kind are few and far between.  Lol.  I am a former professional who is willing to do my share as part of a group (whatever that might be) in working together.  I am trustworthy and seeking the same.  I am also a person of faith.  Please message me if you seek the same.  Thanks!
