From the Madison area.

Experience combat medic, lot of national guard and deployment time. Good medical skills, spent most of my career in the light Infantry. Knowledgeable in prolonged field care and field hygiene concerns. Spent many a night in lean-to shelters, no stranger to the bush. Done my share of door kicker stuff.

Have a wife, she shoots too. Both healthy enough to carry our own weight and more. She’s got years of child care skills if anyone has a family in the group.

We’re armed, but fresh to prepping. I have the bug-out skills and gear but need some group guidance on home preparations, would love a friendly ear to bounce ideas off of.

Hope this message finds you.

Are there any out there? Would like to connect if possible. Looking for a safe house for single women, have been prepping can bring skills to the table. But the more in numbers will make light work. Or help fortify this home, in a rural area. PM me please
Thanks

Starting over for a 3rd time.
Lost everything I had due to situations, involving my grown children & husband. This time I’m needing to relocate just to get distance between us.
My husband isn’t a nice person, especially when drunk.
My children understand that I want to move to the countryside, but believe that I’m better off in the city, because I have never learned to drive.
I am in my early 50s, still having hope for my dreams from childhood to become reality. I don’t have very much preps, also never got the chance to learn skills by doing, which is how I learn best.
I have memories of my brother taking me hunting, cleaning what we caught, showing me how to build a simple shelter, all on our Papaw’s farm in Flaherty, KY. My Dad put me, at the age of 13, in charge of the wood stove while he was at work. He had me & my sisters handle the wood after he chopped it. Dad taught me (although I’m quite rusty now) how to start & maintain the fire. Those, memories were my realities back then.
My fire inside are still burning for the life I’ve been dreaming of.

My lady and I have recently started prepping. Running solo is VERY disconcerting. Skills and supplies are growing with time. Trouble is we are running out of time. Looking to get in contact with like minded people/groups in our area.

WE HAVE RELOCATED TO WISCONSIN ……  Our family (of 4 possibly 7) is realizing that things are heading downhill fast and is looking for a likeminded community or small group to connect with.  We are praying to find someplace that can allow us in based on what an asset we can be and not the money we can bring.  We know the SHTF soon and we want to take action now. So far we have a few books, some food, and our BOBs. We know time is short and are hoping to make this change soon. We also know that it will not be easy work and it will be WORK…..we understand that and wouldn’t expect it to be worth it if wasn’t.

Skills we can offer…. My husband is a mechanic (auto and diesel), knows flooring, carpentry, meat cutting, gardening, firearms, how to live  in the woods, hunting and fishing, self-defense, cooking (indoor and out), has been known to pull a MacGyver now and then, childcare, some medical, and he even does laundry. I can bring the basic household duties but I have also worked many jobs and can probably do it all except weld or drive a semi (but I haven’t tried those yet either), I have cleaned stalls, worked in food service, Amazon fulfillment, MANY factory jobs, office jobs at a college and a tax office, customer service positions, and traveled with a carnival a friend owns. My daughter just graduated in May 2016 and has her first real job at Amazon, but she has always helped my uncle at their place with the garden, grass cutting, and just following him around helping. My son is starting high school this year.

In all honesty, I’M SCARED AS HELL OF WHAT IS TO COME!!!!!!!! While I have no doubt that my husband will do whatever it takes to protect us, I know that we need more training and help to make it. We are not financially blessed by any means, he works a decent job, and I am unemployed, making the other income to the household an SSI check and child support. I am scared for my children and the future that is in front of them, especially my son. I see these things of how they want to “weed out” the weak, disabled, and elderly, and it frightens me as to what could happen to him. We have thought of all the options we have when the time comes and some of them frighten and hurt me.

We do not want to hide any information from you, so you ask and we will tell. I pray that things do not occur the way everyone is saying, but all the signs are pointing in that direction. I get bombarded with emails daily about the coming things and at times I am ready to give up because I just don’t know what to do. I know the Lord says to trust in Him in all things, but it is hard for me sometimes and that scares me too. You can reach us at live4future17[at]gmail[dot]com we look forward to hearing from you soon.
