Reaching out again. I am looking to make contact with other preppers. I would love to find a group to join for mutual support and learning skills. But I would welcome contact with beginners too. Maybe there is a need to start a new group in northern Illinois.
I am not an expert but do have some useful skills and some supplies. I live in the Algonquin area.

  1. Hi. We’re in NW MO, but you never know where you may end up when SHTF. Good to “know” others with some kind if plan.

  2. Hi CaraP.
    Nice to here from other Preppers. I have had trouble getting connected with others in my area. I have met with one and maybe we need to start a new group. Do you have a MAG? If so, how did you find it or start it?
    I’m really not an expert at this so would love to have people to learn from.

  3. I’m in the Buffalo Grove IL area. Just wondering if you found any groups anywhere in the Northwest Chicago suburbs.

    • Im a novice prepper in the skokie area. Have some skills but need a alot of hands on.

    • Hi MomaBear. Good to hear from you. I live out in the Algonquin area. I have established a contact with another like minded person in the area. I have not found an established group. Also yesterday I received a email from Samazhar and sent a reply. Looks like they responded to your post as well.
      I am a retired Physical Therapist, so have a fair amount of medical skills. I also have gardening and food preservation skills.
      Let us know a little about yourself. If you are still interested, perhaps all of us could meet. Looking forward to hearing from you.

    • MommaBear, we are trying to set up a meeting in a week or 2. To meet and get to know each other, see if we have similar interests/ goals. If you are interested I will send the information on the meeting to you. We would be meeting in a safe public spot, likely a library.
      Let me know if you are interested.

    • Hi moma bear,
      I have set up a meeting room for Thursday June 23rd at the Algonquin public library at 7:00pm. Address 2600 Harnish drive, Algonquin. I have set an invite to 4 others that expressed an interest. This will be to meet and see if we are a good fit. Most have said they are interested in a MAG.

  4. Hello

    My wife and I live not too far from you. We live in Hebron. Feel free to reach out to me on here or at [email protected]. We would love to talk about establishing a MAG.

    • Hello McPrepper, I am glad to be hearing from other Preppers. I am out of town for a few days. When I get back on Monday I plan to secure a meeting room at a library and invite all contacts to meet up. There might be as many as 6 people/families. The contacts so far are in an area from Skokie to where you are. I will send specifics and an invite to all next week.
      I can be contacted here on prepper groups or on my email.
