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.

Hi, I am pretty new to prepping. With the recent threats from the North Korea, I have started a small group. We have started putting away supplies, we have enough right now to feed 5 people for 6 months. We do not have a bunker, but we do have a secret place to go if SHTF. My husband is a mechanic and can fix and weld anything. He also is a handy man, he can build a house from the ground up. I have my bachelors in computer science, a lot of good that will do me if anything does happen but I also have other skills. I am a skilled fighter, I can sew, farm, cook anything from anything. Advanced problem solving skills and I could lead a group effectively. I can think fast and provide solutions that work to keep people alive. I have back up plans to my back up plans. Literally, printed out.

Looking for honest, hardworking people. People that will work together under extreme stress and not turn on each other. People that are loyal, who look to work forward, not backward.  I would like to start a new group so that we may learn and grow/prepare together. Interested, email me @[email protected]

With all the issues with North Korea lately and other issues such as tornadoes, floods etc. starting to take prepping more seriouslly and would like to connect with others.

Right now just looking to meet other like minded people and learn strategies etc. but maybe eventually join a group. 30 y.o. male with a family. Can offer skills in the architectural / construction field including help with building bunkers, security etc. No criminal background, college educated, but don’t hold it against anyone who is not. Not religious but not irresponsible either. Thanks.

Hey everyone,

Really new to this. I’ve always been all about making sure to save things and not be wasteful, and have emergency supplies “just in case.” With the way the world is going, though, I want to do something more palpable, focused, and purposeful. I know there’s plenty of preppers in Idaho in Boise and northward. I live in Southeastern Idaho, though, so I wouldn’t be opposed to getting input, help, advice, etc. from experienced people in Utah, Montana, or Wyoming, too.

Thank you for adding me, I look forward to networking with you all.

Hello

We have a great deal of practice at being part of the group, we have lived with 4  preper groups 2 groups for just over a year each, one group for two years and a long term for 6 years.

We left on good terms with each and that is no small undertaking.Their is no perfect family and no perfect group.We have been witness to some of the most interesting group dynamics.Family,marriage,groups each is a commitment day by day a decision that this is what i will work at and this is were i wish to be.     We have never been kicked out or asked to leave any group. We have worked very hard with others to build their infrastructure log cabins,crops,wells,solar power even under ground storm shelters ”bunkers”

What we want

A serious and real group of for the most part like minded  people who wish to learn from one and other teach one and other, train together  of course with in reason  for what could be very interesting and trying times ahead or what do we prep for?    We wish to join an established group who want to add to their security, their workforce and their skill sets .We would prefer the Pacific  Northwest area as this is our stomping grounds,But for the right group of people and right place we could be open.

Some of what i watch for and study and prep for.      our Economy /debt/the fed/I.M.F those are all good right?, Natural disaster/national natural disaster,False flags,cyber attack/true or false flag,/E.M.P,/WAR/world war Nope no chance of that right?N.a.t.o,/U.N     WOW this list could pretty big so that will do. And these are among the most reasonable,rational and logical in the prep world.

What we bring to the table,

2 very able body males over 10 years off grid living experience.Husbandry Goats,chickens,rabbits,horses.growing food /vegetables in many different states /environments.Rustic log cabin building,some carpentry skills, off grid tools.First aid and C.P.R as well as advanced field medic training .Disclaimer lived with army medic 5 years navy medic 1 year trained with both i am not a doctor.

Supplies/security/and other skills  4×4 pickup/work truck ,over a years food stock for a group of 4,A good stock of survival gear, top class A/R’s scoped green laser with flashlight and strobe with sidearms  and a modest arsenal hunting weapons/ammo.bush craft and survival skills at instructor levels

If you are looking for people you can count on we are your guys we even come with references from other group members we have lived with long term to learn more contact us here or at our e mail [email protected]

Hello,

My name is Faith, I am a 19-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.

Like the title says

I am reaching out to any like minded Preppers or Prepper Families in or around East Tennessee.

I am willing to email ideas back and forth to run scenarios by each other. Or meet you in a public place for a cold drink and just shoot the breeze for awhile and bounce ideas off of each other to try to keep you from making mistakes i may have already made or so you can help me to keep from making mistakes you may have already made and learned from. Cause it helps to learn from other peoples mistakes that cost time and money.

Here’s a little about me. I am located in the mountains of East Tennessee 30 minutes from North Carolina and Virginia. We live on a small acreage farm. Where we raise Chickens, Rabbits, Meat Goats and an occasional Hog. My wife is wanting to become a better gardener. My daughter is wanting to work on raising milk goats. We have trail horses. We work hard to prepare for bad situations and emergencies because I am sure trouble is coming and it is going to be bad.

I am an Eagle Scout and Ex-Army Infantry. Came home and served locally in the Tennessee Defense Force. I am a Community Service Minded individual but i won’t let my family be a victim. I am a licensed Tennessee Handgun Permit Instructor. A certified CERT “Community Emergency Response Team”Instructor. I used to be a decent mechanic before they computerized everything. I am a certified Glock Armorer. I am working to learn how to reload. I was certified in CPR and as a First Responder in Tennessee. Working to obtain my Ham License.

Feel free to contact me and we will see where it goes from there.

Take care, Keep your powder dry and Watch your Six.

I am a teacher looking for a prepper group outside of Houston – outside of Dallas, San Antonio, or Austin (and I’m open to other areas if the right fit). I’ve been seriously considering living permanently in an RV to save money and have a bug-out vehicle. I was raised on a farm and looking to live that simple, joyful life again. I’ve been studying the Bible, watched many documentaries, and read a lot of independent news – all pointing to end times very near, such as an economic collapse and/or major catastrophes. Recently, one quote from Jesus that got my attention is, “Look, I will come as unexpectedly as a thief! Blessed are all who are watching for me, who keep their clothing ready so they will not have to walk around naked and ashamed.” (Rev 16:15)

I interpret that to mean that those of us who are watching for Jesus to come back will see the signs and prepare, thus preventing the unnecessary suffering that comes with not preparing. I think of the danger of being in the cities, FEMA, coastline disasters, flooding in low elevation, being without shelter, clothing, and food if forced to evacuate unexpectedly. So many people tell me not to listen the doom and gloom, to be more optimistic, that I’m creating insecurity this way, that I should buy real estate and make money instead of buying an RV and being a nomad, that we’re going to die anyway, blah blah… I am looking for like-minded people with strong minds, level-headed people, Christians, who will be an extended family to me and my daughter. Please let me know if you’re interested in discussing further, or if you have any advice or thoughts on what I’ve shared, please reply. Thank you.

Warm regards,
Kim

New member of the prepping community looking to join with other survival-oriented people in the southwest area. Currently in NM, able to travel. Own my own weapons and a small gear stockpile. Unable to stockpile any great quantity of food and water due to living space restrictions and lack of funding. Humans are social animals who, despite being *able* to survive alone, function best in groups. I’m just looking for somewhere I can help out.

Skills: decent marksman, moderate first aid experience, several years’ backpacking experience. Former boy scout and ROTC cadet. Employed as a chemistry assistant in an electroplating shop for 4 years. Some minor communications and electrical experience. Helped build 2 houses in the Las Cruces area, know my way around manual labor construction a fair bit.

If anyone in the southwest area has an existing group that could use an extra set of working hands, with a halfway decent brain attached, please let me know.

hi-

I’m looking to either start an urban preparedness group, or join up with one that already exists, for the purposes of learning and training together, developing plans, sharing information, and finding useful people.

 

I I have some basic skills but I have not been preparing long, but I’m looking to learn as much as I can and help others learn too. I’m resourceful and can fix anything, have some building skills, firearms, minor medical knowledge, in decent shape. Most importantly I come with a strong will to survive and a positive attitude that we can make it through anything if we stay strong and willing.

 

Im not all that fervently religious (though I’m not against religion in any way) and I’m definitely not interested in getting into a fight with the feds–so if those are your main angles, more power to ya but I’m not interested.

 

This is is kind of a shot in the dark. I’m really not expecting there to be any people inside the city of Minneapolis with a preparedness mindset. But you never know.

 

Reply lay on here and we will go from there. Thank you!

Couple expecting a new addition soon is looking for a prepper group to join anywhere in the US that is a good distance away from coastlines. We currently live in Texas but are planning to relocate to upstate NY near the Canadian border in a few months. I’m not particularly crazy about the idea of living that far north where winters are much harsher than what I’m accustomed to but we have a good friend who lives there and she has friends in Canada who may be able to help in a time of crisis in the US, which we both strongly feel will occur sooner than most may think. I’ve known for awhile now that I should be prepping for what is about to take place but haven’t really had the means to do so and have been caught up in distractions that life throws at us all from time to time. We are both on a limited fixed income and neither of us can handle extreme physical labor but their are still many things we are capable of doing at a slower pace than most. Then there are some things we can do at a faster pace like cooking. We have been doing alot of research on survival skills necessary to make it in what we both believe is shortly to begin…the great tribulation that is spoken of in the bible. We have also been researching alternative natural medicines and different styles of durable bug out housing that is cost efficient. We have alot of useful knowledge but with cost of living being so high and our combined incomes being so low it’s very hard for us to obtain property to begin building on or even the other resources needed to start. We are Christians but not affiliated with any type of organized religion and do not wish to be. Our religion is love. Jesus taught love, compassion, kindness, and forgiveness not doctrine. We are looking for a family or small group of folks who already have land they are wanting to work to build a bug out for when SHTF. More than just stockpiling certain items, which we know are necessary, we are interested in obtaining sustainable resources by growing our own fruits and vegetables and having at least a small supply of livestock like chickens for eggs and meat and goats for milk. A fish pond would be awesome too. For us an ideal location for this off the grid bug out camp would be in a well wooded area far from major cities and densely populated areas, and definitely not near any type of military base. A nearby water source is a must as well. We do not wish to join any type of malitia as we do not intend to fight the establishment. This is Gods war not ours and all we seek to do is hide from tyranny and survive as long as possible without being detected. If you own weapons for hunting and protection we are perfectly ok with that. We don’t own any ourselves as of yet but are not opposed to obtaining a few or learning how to use various types of weapons. I feel like I’m writing a novel here so I’m gonna wrap this up. If anyone is interested in having us join them we will definitely be able to help out financially and in many other ways so long as we have a place to reside while preparations are being made. Please contact us ASAP if interested…we fear time is running out. You can contact us via e-mail at [email protected] Be aware that we do not intend to give anyone money up front before we get to know you through various means of communication and arrive at our destination. I may have been born at night but it sure wasn’t last night!

Greetings,

We are a couple (both 35) with a nearly three year old son.  We have been preparing and training in Northern California for years, but are no longer confident that this is a safe area to live through the increasing earth changes and what may come.

As such, we are looking to strategically relocate and join a high-trust, thoroughly self-sufficient community that includes other families.

We respect operational security, but do require a sufficiently open dialog that we can develop the requisite trust to move forward.  While this is necessarily a process, it’s also an urgent one.

Some of our interests and areas of expertise include:

Growing/harvesting
Cooking, fermentation, pickling

Firearms
Survival
Licensed amateur radio operator

Electronics & repair; Software/Internet
Music:  Piano, Guitar, Harp; Theory, Education
Art
Parenting / teaching
Philosophy & Counseling

Health & Fitness
Nutrition & anti-cancer diet

Both experienced entrepreneurs, which means applying infinite creativity in solving endless problems and working with others to build something real.

There is clearly much more.  I am confident we can make a meaningful contribution to any community, particularly given that we share a goal of securing a future for our families.  Eager to discuss how we can work together.

If you are such a group, or know of any groups looking for families, please reach out:  christian ѳ props ˑ org

All the best, and God bless.

Hello,

I am currently in the SE part of the US and I am moving to the SW. I have been working on getting my wife to understand the importance of preparing for various possible (and probable) disasters which she doesn’t want anything to do with. It puts me in a difficult spot knowing when the time comes I will have to make a decision I don’t want to make. With that said, I know what is in my heart and upbringing which is why I joined this forum. I am not a “professional prepper”, I admittedly have a lot to learn but I have to say I am better off than most (even if it is just knowledge). I am looking for a group in AZ that is interested in a family oriented, outdoors type, family-man that will be relocating to be near family and work. I am interested in finding either a “hunt camp” or a group that would allow either RV, weekend tent get-aways, or a small shed/house type structure if property is already secured. If it’s a group that gathers to share thoughts and ideas/plans (with no property) that’s fine too. FTF will be delayed until physical move is complete (expected around end of May ’16). I am open to interviews online pending mutual approval for a FTF meeting (email is in profile or post to this message for replies and initial contact). Stay safe out there!

At this point there are others who are interested, and I have placed 2 big travel trailers on the land . One to be enclosed in a solar double garage for temporary housing for myself . Your temporary housing would be welcome if you are in sync w/me.
No offense but please don’t contact me unless you are seriously considering a move to a group in a safer place, and please understand that my project is not developed, and will require a lot of physical work, but also – you will be on the ground floor, so to speak.
Thank you, and good luck to you all in this New Year .

Family of three maybe eight looking to move with 90 to 120 days notice.

We are Christians.  My wife and I are retired and debt free with moderate monthly income (long as the economy lasts).  We are looking to prep full time and move to join a group or help start a group. We are looking to live a self-sustainable lifestyle before and surviving while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a change in lifestyle to get off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid.  I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have my own tools and equipment.  I hope to get (or build) a saw mill and backhoe.  We have food, water filters, some weapons and ammo and a camper to live in till I could build a living structure.  Hoping to build some type of an earth structure from one of the following CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the Earth Ship concept of a reactive living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling).   I am hoping to build a CEB press.  I believe biofuel is an answer to renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.  I also believe aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source.

If we join a group, we will need at least 1-2 acres to build and live on. We want to help others do the same, we also want to work on the common area preparing it for the group 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 from others as well.  We have started converting our lights over to LED lighting, 12v rolls of strip lights in the old 120v light fixtures.

I have the material to build the roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I have a wife, two sons, (22 & 30) a daughter-in-law, daughter (24) with 2 year old son and a son-in-law all in better than average health. No medications required for any of us.  All are on board for this.  We thought we had a place but it didn’t work out so we need to get out of the city.  We currently live in an irrigated desert which is running out of water.  When power is gone, the water will be gone as will civil order.

I am a Nam Vet.

We have building experience, some electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs, mechanic both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen civil disorder, marshal law and rioting with families who were desperate and not prepared at all.  I’ve also seen families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  12 years ago I lived at a mission base with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Ten years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, then down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling.

We are debt free and looking for a group with christian values to connect with and then relocate to, which will not be a quick process as we will need to get to know each other (although time is short).  Don’t need decoder rings but security is an important point before we consider joining forces with others.

We have served the Lord for 21 years full time without a paying full time job so we do not have a nest egg or 401K so if you are looking for a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like to explore a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications.

If you want to talk about someday doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday do 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 contact me then we can talk privately.  Email me and I will send you my phone number.

The kind of people i’m looking for would have priorities like this

1st family

2nd neighbors

3rd community

4th themselves 

I personally believe in the creator but i don’t care if you do or don’t. I will relocate for the right group of people. I am pretty new to prepping but have dedicated my life to getting prepared. I am looking for serious preppers who have good morals and ethics. If anything i said interest you just leave your email in the comments.
