Greetings,
It is odd to me that this site does not have nearly the life and activity it once had, Considering the precarious times we are currently living in. Perhaps their is better places in which I am not privy to.           Regardless 
I am a Red Blooded, God fearing, American Man. A widower, Lower mid 40s and father to adult children who save my Father in Heaven, My children are my greatest love and deepest joy.
I own a small piece of very rural land and have lived an off grid lifestyle for a number of years. I have raised some animals lived off of solar and a small hydro electric system, and hunted for food never sport. grown vegetables,
Fact of the matter is I can not stay awake 24/7 and care very little for the lone wolf idea. I am willing to join a group I can go where ever needs be. I have nothing holding me to this spot as beautiful as it is,
I have everything I need all of my own long term food in bulk, more than most less than supper preppers. or to make this shorter I have the things preppers should have. I need one commodity only where ever i land and that is water.
If your group has security teams or personal I hope and pray it does. I am willing to pass any test you have be it solo tactical Pistol or Rifle or fire teams tactical courses. no matter if it is outdoor obstacle course or indoor shooting house,  Note I will only do live fire exercises or fire team drills with those i have seen have the ability and skillsets to do so as i would not expect anyone to do with me until proven.
If their are any interested contact me at [email protected]

Hi all!  Just joined here, and its nice to see so many posts from fellow Minnesotans.  I haven’t read them all yet, but wanted to add mine to the forum and say hey.  My wife and I live about an hour SW of the Twin Cities metro in rural Sibley County, and are looking for others out in this area that are interested (or would be interested in moving out this way) in prepping, survival, gardening, farming and the like.

Feel free to reply here (or inbox me) to contact.  We are very open minded (yet cautious) people, but our hopes are that we can find others with synergy!  Looking forward to getting to know others!

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!

Hi there,

We are a husband & wife with a 3 yr old son. Escaped to rural Southwest Ohio from LA,CA just before Thanksgiving. Husband is a rigger, carpenter with lots of tools, strong, intelligent organizer, knows how to garden, very calm. I can cook/bake anything from scratch, crotchet, sew, I have a lot of self-taught medical knowledge & am highly a intuitive empath. We’re conservative, republican constitutionalists with Judeo-Christian values, morals, beliefs who 100% support our President Trump. We started prepping a few months ago when we both “woke up” to the truth of the world. We’re well armed, have a truck, a bit more than basic survival supplies & are very eager to learn more while we work to excel our current skills. We would love to meet likeminded families interested in having us a apart of your prepping group/ finding training classes.
Thank you for this space.

Libby,

I would appreciate an email or any guidance please, [email protected]

I’m not worried about the coronavirus as a health issue because all the contradictory statements and advisories.

People are getting tense and anxious and desperate because some don’t have jobs to go to right now. It’s escalating everyday. People are hoarding food so food prices very well could skyrocket to deter that.

If you’re with or trying to link up with local prepper groups, please send a private message or email about how you’re getting connected and anything you’re doing last minute to insulate yourself against the backlash, not the virus itself.

Will join or start a “local” group if I can link up with anyone in this area.  Southern TN is “local” as is Huntsville, Lake Guntersville, Stephenson, Gurly, and the general area.

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,

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.

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.
