Warning: This post is more than 18months old. Information contained in this post may no longer be current.

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.

  1. I am a fellow born-again christian living near Palatka. Much of north Florida away from major cities has a low population density. A former special forces member of my prepper group in SW Florida recommended living north of Ocala.

    I have acreage with lots of wood and a creek for one border of my property. Water table is about 15 feet so a pitcher pump would work. I would like to connect with other prepared people who would live in my area.

    I am a retired chemist and hydrologist.

    If you would consider moving near me, let me know your interest so we can talk.

    You could probably find some land near me that would be suitable.

    • what is your elevation?
      I’m looking for 600′ or more!
      I do wish you the best and God bless you in your effort.

    • I am new to this site but not new to prepping. My husband and I are both born again Christians. We have talked about having a group to help withstand what will come but have no idea how it would work. We are looking at buying between 20-50 acres in the next year or so for ourselves but wouldn’t be opposed to the right people living on the land with us to help and to build a group. Looking for ideas on how that would work. The area would be central Oklahoma. It takes some time finding the right land with a water source outside of the populated areas. In Oklahoma we still have seasons so if you like the same weather all year around then Oklahoma isn’t for you. We have tornados as well but oklahomar are known for being in the bible belt and most of us are hard working and generous.
      My husband and I are both veterans so I thank you for your service to our great country. If you care to chat please let me know.

      • will get back to you later have been out service

      • Hello, I’m interested in hearing how your project is coming. We may not have until next year to get a bugout location ready. I’m a Christian and have two Christian friends living with me on my place north of Houston about 90 miles. Water isn’t a problem this year. Pretty well down the path of prepping rurally, but also looking for an alternative.

  3. Howdy,

    Well, small world, eh? I posted right before you. If you guys wanna stay down South, then we may not be you cup of tea. But, as I often tell folks, EVERYBODY is headed down South (high population density!). This will be especially so when TSHTF.

    I’m guessing you were asking about elevation due to the potential of the New Madrid, Planet X, etc. We are at 1400 feet here. Very low population density. Great Natural Resources, Wildlife, etc. No Street Gangs, No Traffic Jams. The Cold Winters keep the Riff Raff out.

    We moved up here from Down South, and love it. Couldn’t drag us away. Cheaper living, low taxes, etc. We are homesteaders in the U.P. of Michigan.

    • Hi Corkwheats! I was actually in the process of looking at potential land for building a retreat and I came across this plot near your area and my initial reaction was “Holy cow its got to be cold up there in the winter.” Glad to hear though that the short growing season doesn’t affect the success of prepping for some.

      • Hi Chris,

        Just think about something…….your concept that “it’s got to be cold up there in the winter” is one of the exact reasons why we #1 – Have Low Population Density, and #2 – Have ZERO Street Gangs, Traffic Jams, etc.

        Here’s the deal – Some “Americans” want it all. They want a retreat where they can be safe in uncertain times, but they also want to Golf in January. My advice for them is to move to Orlando, Florida (along with everyone else). Good luck with your preps when TSHTF.

        Yes! We actually have Winter. It even gets cold, and snows! (Oh, my gosh!). For a homesteader, this is actually a “positive” for the land, and gives it a chance to rest.

        This is an extremely pristine area. You couldn’t drag me away. I am originally from the Deep South. We grow amazing nutrient dense veggies, as well as fruit trees. There are wild berries, mushrooms, leeks, etc. Deer, Turkeys, Bald Eagles, etc. are commonly seen. The fishing is unbelievable. We have ultra pure well water, as well.

        If you are interested, I can show you some nice spots available near us. Just gimme a shout.

  10. (@wsaphrodite & Others In This Group – How Do I SAFELY Contact & Find Safe-Haven Location/Help ASAP?) Hi, My name is Abagail. I am a single, looking for a Christian Off-Grid-Living Self-Sustaining Community, to be part of, ASAP. I would like to rent a (12X12 or 10X10 rm w/closet-or w/o closet but preferred), for $150-$200/month Or Less, from a family in the community&be part of that Family-Unit in Sharing my food, Resources and Sharing in the Responsibility of Chores. I would prefer a community in Virginia, that does NOT Flood or Have Corruption; SAFE; but possibly considering the Ozark Mountains in Ar Or NC area, if I can have help to move from Southern Coastal Virginia. I Love GOD, People, Life, Nature, Animals, Gardening, Fishing-NOT Hunting, Sewing,&Crocheting (Designing&Hand-Making My Designs), Painting&Making things homemade, Cooking Healthy, Cleaning, Organizing, Healing The Body Naturally with Foods/Herbs/Spices, Learning Different Languages, helping Teach young children/pre-teens and Young women, writing songs&poems and worshiping the LORD;into most of the sciences-especially Environmental Science.

    I do NOT drink, or have any drug problems: I believe in treating/fighting cancer/pain/sickness/health issues with ALL natural foods/herbs/spices for natural healing – except occasionally I will take 1 Tylenol on occasion when absolutely necessary for a migraine headache – I have my own stethoscope, microscope&SOME Alternative/Traditional main-stream Medical guides/books But I Am NOT A Doctor or Nurse; I also have Nature field guides, binoculars, and some Bible Study resources&MANY Bibles&Dictionaries in Different Languages;Fluent in ASL/PSE Sign Language. I have experience in Volunteering with teaching Young Children’s Bible Classes in Church/Deaf Church Most of my life AND Volunteering in Preschool classrooms when in community college; I also have experience volunteering most of my life with being a Personal Care Attendant for Elderly/Sick In-Home of all ages & 1 Year professionally….and 1 year volunteering with the American Red Cross during a Cat 3 hurricane when I was in Bible College one year. Hoping to find a community that has midwifes, holistic medical professionals&skilled outdoor survivalist who know how to live off the land…in a community where everyone pulls together to help each other in/through a crisis, As FAMILY.

    I also boldly state, I will NOT engage in any inappropriate relationships with a man, unless I am married to him- that My life completely belongs to the LORD…I made that mistake in the past, being engaged to someone, unequally yolked and will not ever do that again because it goes against my beliefs in GOD’s Word that I Now Choose to Fully Live! I have grown up into a new maturity level in the LORD and am learning The Truth&HIS Ways, Every Day Now! I do have some skills in self-defense, but am not a violent person. I do not believe it is wrong to defend ones self or family…but I Do Believe it is wrong to be violent towards another- there is a BIG Difference between the two; I Believe Love Is Of GOD and LOVE Never Fails, and that The LOVE OF GOD heals! I do NOT own a gun and do NOT want to own a gun; I choose other methods for safety, protection&survival; mostly Prayer & GODly Wisdom led By the HOLY SPIRIT OF GOD, first and foremost! I do NOT have/own a vehicle anymore, since I Gave It Away years ago and have been living by faith for years Now; therefore, I would need help moving from Southern Coastal Virginia, to community location. Any Guidance&Help, would be most deeply appreciated. Thank you for your time, and I look forward to hearing from you!

    Most Sincerely with Kind Regards and Love,
    October 14, 2016
