We are a little 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, wild turkeys, coyotes, cougar?) We are wilderness-based, not city, town, or farm-based.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, 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 and permanent 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, 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.

Excellent 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 reliable transportation.

This Sanctuary is not a residential situation for most members during normal times, but a retreat location where we gather about 6 weekends a year to explore, work, learn, and play. We also stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when “something” happens. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We only consider youth who are capable of completely grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age of about 8), and we would look at the youth’s qualities and motivations, just as we would with an adult.

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion, and we will keep all communications confidential: zimindrixli [at] yahoo [dot] com.

Our members our expected to have at least a year supply of food, other supplies, personal defense and ammo. New members are given a timeline to acquire food and supplies to be fair to existing members. Everyone must be an asset and not a liability.

We prep for anything that might make cause for martial law.  (Financial collapse, cyber-attack, epidemic, war, EMP, Carrington Event, major Cascadia earthquake or at New Madrid.)

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 bellatorcantor [at] protonmail [dot] com

Do you have the skills to survive???

Communities on Whidbey Island need to come together and make a plan. They’re will  not be emergency help once the crap hits the fan and what I mean by crap is when there is no food or supplies left in the stores on the Island. People that are not prepared for this will be coming to you for help. Are you going to turn them away? So I am looking for like minded people to join in and share their survival peppers skills in case of a natural disaster on Whidbey Island. “BE PREPARED”

What if you were hiking on a trail or camping with some friends and went for a walk when suddenly you don’t know the way back? Do you have enough survival skill to stay put and regroup or maybe survive a night in the woods until you are found or make it back out. “What If” Do you have the skills to survive???

Hey guys,

I live in West Seattle and have been into prepping/survivalism for quite a few years. I admit that I am nowhere near where I want to be with it but I always keep it as a goal.

I’m looking to form a group of preppers with a special focus on discussing how the U.S. Government, economics, special interest groups, etc. affect how we prep. I am not crazy, I am intelligent, and I am a productive member of society…although it is a society that is sadly asleep and medicated on entertainment and materialism.

I believe that getting accurate information is difficult and we should constantly check ourselves to make sure we are not forming opinions based on media, popular opinion, others’ opinions, etc.

When the shit hits the fan, I want to have a tight community of active, awake, prepared, and skilled friends to exist with.

So, feel free to drop me a line!

Permaculture: the development of agricultural ecosystems intended to be sustainable and self-sufficient.

Prepper: a person who believes a catastrophic disaster or emergency is likely to occur in the future and makes active preparations for it, typically by stockpiling food, ammunition, and other supplies.

I believe in a marriage of the prepper and permaculture mindsets. The prepper is incomplete without a way to rebuild, and the permaculturist will never succeed without even the most basic prepper security.

As such, my personal goal is to continue learning permaculture in my spare time, as I prepare myself and my household.

I’m looking for like minded folks in the Pacific North West, who wouldn’t mind meeting over a coffee, sharing goals, and cooking up a mutual plan for land and shared talent.

All,  Some great posts here, glad I found this forum.  I live in Northern California, East Bay and looking for similar folks in the area.  I was born and raised in California and saddened to see the state of our State.  I am considering to move up to Seattle area or get a Fall Out Location in the Sierras.  I am Married with 3-kids and looking to see if there are others concerned with the area.

With the political situations getting more intense, protests increasing and a large number of convicts being released in the streets (thanks to Brown) a bad situation is bound to happen. Looking to get a sense of what other are doing here in California or whether they are looking to move out.  I do want to be prepared for worst case scenarios, but at the same time need to be near a tech hub for work. Further, I do want to have my home base near a city dwelling for the University Systems for my kids.

One thought is to move to Seattle and get a FOL in Idaho.  Comments / thoughts welcome!

I am a retired , 68, single in relatively good health. I currently live in the Seattle area. Bad area for survival, overdue mega quake, big volcano overdue for eruption (Rainier), crime, and the worst of all lots of Liberals. I’m not big on joining groups. I would just like to buy a place where my neighbors are of  like mind and help each other out. I am not flush with money but maybe I can work something out. If you are a scammer  forget it. I  will review everything with a lawyer and have title insurance. I’m not a bible thumper or a church goer but I do believe in the Book, although my understanding of it is not what you would call main stream. I would like to find a young lady to share the journey with. So ladies if you want to relocate, and want male companionship this may be your golden opportunity. 

[Trogg, read the rules on posting here – http://www.preppergroups.com/about/]

There are no mosquitos capable of carrying zika in either Washington State or Idaho, just something to consider. I want to be as self-sufficient as possible without getting too carried away. I visited Priest River last fall and that is the area I think I would like to live.  In the past I lived in vans and I lived in my pickup truck camper for five years do to poverty. At one time I guess I  was kind of a hippie. With that kind of past, I would not freak out when the going gets tough. I am thinking of making a trip to Priest River soon or possibly Sand Point also. Maybe we could meet for coffee. If you just want to talk that is Ok too. I would like to make new friends in the area. trogg90 [at] yahoo [dot] com

Hello everyone,

I am a 22 year old male who currently resides in Portland.

I have come to realize how truly dangerous this city is and I don’t to be here when some cataclysmic event occurs in the probable near future. We’re at the brink of an all out war with China/Russia, our economy is on the cusp of a collapse and the media seems to have brainwashed the masses into thinking everything if OK.

Going off grid seems like the only likely scenario at this point that could work. Property seems pretty cheap in parts of Oregon and Washington. Ideally, I would like to find 5-10 like minded preppers and attempt to purchase some land and prepare for what is to come.I also am open to joining a group or am open to any ideas that you might have, but that is the general direction I’m heading towards.

I don’t have any special skills, but I am physically capable and most importantly, spiritually and mentally prepared. I am a believer in God and my faith is very important to me. It is a requirement that you are a believer in God as well. I have guns and ammunition for myself as well as some basic survival tools, but I am obviously far from prepared.To be upfront, I will have approximately $5k-10k  to put towards this property. If I can find enough people, it could be a lot less! I would imagine it’s going to get easier and easier to find deals on land as well. I have found a few myself that seem very undervalued.

Please reply if you’re interested! I promise I’ll respond back. Things are getting worse and worse each day around the world and it’s only a matter of time before something happens here. I’m looking to relocate ASAP, but realistically I’d need about 1-2 months to prepare everything and get my funds in order. I would like to be completely off grid by election time, if this Country makes it that far…

We are a family of 9 just listening to God telling us to get ready for something big.   My husband and I live with our 6 children and my mother in a small cabin (my husband built in 2 weeks) on 20 acres near Newport WA.  We recently got a milk cow but can’t make cheese lol. We are just looking for like minded people that might want to help us build a little community of preparedness up here.  We would like to get to know you before we involve anyone in what we are trying to accomplish but could meet somewhere to eat or for coffee to talk and get to know each other first??  We just want friends that wont think we’re nuts, because we are very different from the world.  You will have to meet us to believe us. No joke.  We want to meet people like us that might be able to help us make cheese lol farm, garden, secure the land and in return we have maybe land for you to utilize for living, prepping, growing, ect… we are mainly seeking knowledge, friendship and Christ-like people to create what WE believe the bible was talking about when it mentioned ‘the Church’. We are tired of traditional powerless church. We want to activate His power through obedience and the number one commandment. LOVE

Hi everyone,

 

I live in Kent,  WA and I am searching for a local group to join.  If anyone knows of any please let me know.  I am very interested in learning.

Nov 202015
 

Warning: This post is older than 12months. Information contained in this post may no longer be current.

We are a family of six (four teen/young adult children) living in the mountains a couple of hours north of Spokane.  Looking to make a few connections to share info and possibly projects.

About us – we are conservative Christian family with conservative politics.  We are not heavy conspiracy theorist types.  We do not belong to a group (yet).  We simply want to be more self sufficient and extremely well prepared for any troubled times that may lie ahead. We made the move from living in suburbs all over the USA to a rural location miles away from the nearest small town.  Strong supporters of traditional, conservative interpretations of the US Constitution including the 1st, 2nd and 4th amendments.

Our home and land is constantly under revision with several current projects underway or completed, and many projects planned.  We have clean water, great hunting, large gardens and we have started out on livestock  (successfully) with raising chickens and turkey.  Getting ready for goats (2016) and eventually cattle.

I am looking to connect with people who have working/hands on knowledge of the following:

  1. Gardening and food production
  2. Communications – Ham Radio for home, vehicle and compact portable units.  CB radio and general comms.
  3. Vehicle maintenance – I like working on older trucks but its a learning process as I am not a mechanic.  Heavy interest in older trucks due to resistance to EMP.  Plus, they’re just plain fun.
  4. Emergency power generation
  5. Gunsmithing/builds/scenario based target practice
  6. Home security and defense

We do not bring people to our home until we know them well.  Would prefer to establish communication via email first, then possibly meet at a public location like a restaurant.  This is simply networking and exchanging knowledge, but we have also exchanged time on family projects with people we’ve gotten to know.

We are also willing to share our experiences of moving out of the suburbs to a rural area.  We made a few mistakes and also have successes.

Let me know if you are interested in connecting. Thanks!
