Looking for people who want to get a group together in north eastern Washington. Interested in those who have supplies but more about skill sets. As far as me I have a strong military background in combat arms, mechanical, medical,  built my own cabin, own my property with good soil and water. I would like to find  subject matter experts in gardening, medical, fabrication and mechanical, foraging, and hunting and fishing but open to others. I am not religious but respect those that are, not looking to start a cult or militia hahahaha. Just good people living free…..

  1. The 4 P’s of prepping:
    People [at best a tribe; at least a family]
    Place [remote away from other people]
    Possessions [step down supplies; this ain’t gonna end soon]
    Psychology [skills, abilities, philosophy, & emotions]

    Much of NE WA is a no-go. If you understand what the Columbia Basin represents then you understand that Stevens, Pend Oreille, & Spokane counties are extremely hazardous.

    Seed saving can be tricky. Have proved out [3 yr process] potatoes from my own seed [not seed potato; potato seed] and garlic from my own bulbils.

    How to salvage rancid brown rice…

    Decision making processes for a group…

    The only future is in the children.

    Don’t forget the salt.

    Still lookin’ [not for militia types] after all these years,

    • What are you referring to when you said “Stevens, Pend Oreille & Spokane counties are extrememly hazardous”? These counties describe pretty much “North East Washington” state. We got the idea that they are safer then most places in the USA to put down your roots. However, we suppose we do not know what dangers you are referring to that exist in the “Columbia Basin”. Also, we assume you have found a region to settle in that is safer, where is that? Seems to us there is no place like that as all have something wrong with them that one can discover and then call unsafe. As you say, “Still looking after all these years.” We feel the best place to be when TSHTF is right where one finds oneself in the community one lives in as to hit the road searching for one place after the fact would truly be extremely hazardous.

  2. I’m in the area, and for several reasons won’t be able to bug out to another location. So, I’ve been developing a plan to hunker down, which includes rain harvesting, gardening, creating an apothecary, etc.
    I’m not an expert in anything, but a jack-of-all-trades, so to speak. The hope is to begin beekeeping, and build on food storage/prep (dehydration, smoking, drying, canning, fermenting). Our chickens/ducks and nearby animals/birds will be our main source of protein aside from the garden and foraging.
    I am always looking for long term sustainable ideas, especially for generations beyond our own, as my kids will have to learn to live off what is available after I’m gone if SHTF.
    Good to know you’re out there!

    • How have your efforts been going in putting into action your “long-term sustainable ideas”? We’ve been making similar efforts and havfe been living in these ways on our homestead since 1990. We’ve acquired a great deal of knowledge, skills, and resources and are willing to help like-minded others to set themselves up in a community with us and one another. Get to know us and read about what we offer at If you cannot afford to purchase a plot maybe we can work out a form of scholarship, as we mention in our listing. What we need are co-founding types of people to build a good foundation for a successful community. “Joiners” are a dime a dozen and these do not want to live in community with anyone, as they feel doing so would be unAmerican (which is true, it is). Joiners want the “leaders” of the group to make it possible for them to live like they have been accustomed to in their separateness. They will make no effort to assist everyone in their tribe to live self-reliantly as they feel this is what others should do for themselves. However, they love the idea of benefiting from the social and material resources that a community would offer them. These are all of what we have had to deal with in all our years of our trying to build a prepper village. Therefore, if the reader replies to this message (or our listing), please do so in the spirit of assisting our efforts with only the most helpful and harmless intentions. Enough said?

  3. NorthEastWA, Could you explain more about what you meant when you posted “Just good people living free”?
