Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding its monthly meeting at Noon on Saturday, May 22, 2021 at the Langlois Library, 48234 US-101, Langlois, OR 97450. We will be meeting outside so bring something to sit on.

The main topic is “SHOW AND TELL”. SWOP members will be sharing various tips and techniques on how they prepare.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers was founded in May 2012. This month marks our 9th anniversary!

SWOP meetings always start with a question and answer period before the main topic so all in attendance get a chance to participate.

This is a free public meeting to get to know fellow local preppers in southwestern Oregon counties and to exchange information and ideas. It is important for individuals to understand that they will be “on their own” in the event of a disaster and not depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

I’m a single girl, 37 in Minneapolis, Minnesota. Is anyone near me? I’m new to this. With inflation on the horizon I need to start with the basics. Who is new as well?

Thanks, Mike

SUBJECT: This is a roughly drafted “Information Sheet” about the “prepper’s cookout” in Goochland County, Virginia from Wednesday June 23 to Friday June 25.
Dates of the event at Groundhog Flats (20 miles West of Richmond Va.)
The actual day of the event is Thursday June 24. Any attendee can arrive and can depart on that day, June 24th. But the place will be open and overnight accommodations provided on Wed. night June 23 and Thurs night June 24th. Friday the 25th will also be available to continue any of the activities before departing by end of the day Friday June 25. (Some attendees might be heading next up next to the Polyface Farm event near Staunton Va., which is about 1.5 hours away going West on Route 64 towards Charlottesville).
So the main day is Thursday but you can make your plans any way you want, whatever is convenient for you, to enjoy the sights and camp-out from Wednesday June 23 through Friday June 24 and any times in-between. Such as to arrive on Wednesday and not to depart until Friday. Or arrive and depart on Thursday. Or arrive Wednesday afternoon and depart Thursday evening. You get the idea. The schedule at the Virginia site is flexible for you and the site will be open Wednesday through Friday.

Location:
The location is about 20 miles West of Richmond, Va., just across the Goochland County line in an area known as Manakin-Sabot (“Manakin”). Manakin is mostly rural and farmland, although in the past 10-20 years metro Richmond has been moving Westward and developments are springing up almost every month it seems. Still at the location of this Prepper’s site, the neighbors are a large expanse of farmland, usually corn and other crops rotated during the season. In the other direction is a large pasture of cows, who at times remind you at night that they still have grazing rights with their “mooing”.

The location is known as “Groundhog Flats”, part of what was a large pig and dairy farm started at the turn of the century and into the 1900s. This was the only place in the area, surrounded by woods, but this past year 3 other houses were built in areas carved into the woods on the same cul de sac.
The property consists of the main farmhouse on 3 cleared acres, with 14 shed type outbuildings, two rows of what used to be chicken and pig stalls, a pump house building (no longer used) and a smokehouse where the pigs were hung. The farmhouse built in 1896 and its heating system is still 3 fireplaces. A property manager does live on-site, but no one is currently living in the farmhouse while it is undergoing a (slow) restoration.
Legend has it (as told by a longtime family living in the area for ages), that a large oak tree…. still standing near the house …. was the centerpiece of a Confederate campsite during the Civil War. This was one outpost of sites defending the City of Richmond, 20 miles away. If true, one of the campfires at this June’s event can be celebrated as the renewal of a Confederate campfire 150 years ago.
In short, there is lots of open space with a decent amount of isolation. So the music can be cranked up and the partying and activities of choice can be carried on in a mostly rural farmland environment.

The location is ideal for our group because it is “out of the way”, many woods and farm fields all around, and you can do pretty much whatever you want without being disturbed.

What to expect……
Some canopies and tents will have been put up. Cots, sleeping bags, makeshift beds, maybe on the ground, and whatever else we come up with to make sure you have a comfortable sleep. But this will be rustic. No Hilton Inn here. Although yes, a modern day bathroom will be available. At least one campfire, with marshmallows and hot dogs for those who want to relive their boy scout days, and a small fish pond where about 15 good size outdoor gold fish call home. Some lanterns and string lights strung around, so we will not be in total darkness.
Educational subject matter
There will be at least 4 good size solar panels around for experimentation and making connections, with examples of powering survivalist equipment (making coffee; powering makeshift communication systems; lighting).
A brief description of some topics and subject matter to be covered in presentations will be sent out at a time in June closer to the dates of the event.
Input from attendees is invited and welcomed on any subject you would like to (1) make a presentation on, or (2) hear someone else give information on it. Input about any topics that you’d like to cover when there would be helpful. With such a diverse group, even though having the common ground of a “prepper spirit”, we would like input in advance of any subject to be discussed or demonstrated. This way it might be possible to bring in someone with specific expertise in that area, so that is why any input of this type we’d like to get in advance.

Otherwise, even without any specifics, this will be a great gathering place of like-minded people enjoying casual time outdoors. The discussions in such a relaxing and casual environment over lead to things that we can pursue and exchange thoughts on well after this is over and we are back in our home territory.

Grills, Drinks and Food
Of course, there will be multiple grills fired up; Virginia Bar-B-Q, hamburgers and all the dressings; and coolers packed with ice and your favorite beer and wine refreshments. We ask that you bring you own as much as possible as this is not a money making event. The property owner is not able to offer an unlimited amount of free refreshments and meals. Nonetheless, we will try to accommodate as much as possible. Plus there is a grocery store (and a Dollar General and other friendly stores) just 2 miles away, so you do not have to lug food and drinks during your drive or other travel in getting here. You can pick up whatever you want from the local stores when you get here and as your appetites click in.
In other words, plan on buying nearby what you need when you get here, and then be surprised when you are able to get more freebies at the event itself.
Contact information
As property owner and welcoming host, I live in Richmond and my name and cell phone are: Michael Morrissey: 804-502-4468. Email is: [email protected] You can contact me about any concerns, questions, new thoughts (always want that) and anything else. The address in Manakin-Sabot, Va. 23103 will be given at the time each attendee registers.
Since we all like to know a little about the people we will be camping with, I add this brief personal information. I developed an interest in the prepper technologies from my close friend Marvin Motsenbocker, who will be a presenter at the event coming here from Japan. We both met from common work in the patent law field in Wash DC. My past work has been in electrical engineering (B.S.) and law (J.D.). I was an Examiner at the US Patent & Trademark Office, did Defense Dept work for government agencies, and now enjoy applying new technologies to come up with useful devices/products/systems.

Major drive routes nearby
Route 95 brings you into Richmond from the North or South, and Route 64 goes West out to Groundhog Flats and beyond…. about 50 miles more to Charlottesville, Va.
RSVP REQUIRED
This is necessary in order to keep track of things and of people. No one will be admitted who has not registered in advance. In other words, no strangers will be allowed on the property. A stranger is anyone who is not on the list of registered attendees.
Registration here consists simple of you emailing me that you plan to attend and receiving from me a reply email that welcomes you to attend. If you can give the dates of your arrival and departure that will help in planning for your overnight accommodations. Last minute adjustments to the actual dates are no problem. We just want to have an extra pillow for you at night instead of a log for your head.

Hope to see ‘ya at Groundhog Flats in June!

Hello from rocky mountain Montana. Now is the time to lay in some firewood for the coming winter. Even tho it hit almost 100F here we know winter is coming. Same goes for the economic/political world around us.
By some reports the monetary supply has been inflated by 34% in the last year and the local Holly Hobby is paying $17 an hour for clerks? Time to be self reliant and have your own means of keeping you and yours fed and safe.
I am always looking for others who are actively pursuing self reliance for the coming events and situations.

Hello,

My family and I have been prepping for around 10 years now. I have acquired 90% of my families preps from Firearms/Ammo, Generator both Gas/Propane and solar, food and water cache to last 12 months, medical supplies to last for several years. I am a 25 year RN currently working on my FNP. I am a master gardener and I am skilled in raising live stock. My firearms skills are at a master’s level and I can repair just about any firearm.  We are looking for a stable preppers group that we can grow with.

Openings at Survival Sanctuary near Mt. St. Helens, SW Washington/NW Oregon

We are a little private 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, coyote, cougar) We are edge-of-the-wilderness based, not city, town, or farm-based, although we grow a large garden.

We plan to keep the Team small for many reasons, including that our fallout shelter only holds 6. We are prepared for nuclear war, (actual) 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 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 (for your age), 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.

Good 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 transportation to get here (unless very close).

The Sanctuary may or may not be a residential situation for new members during normal times. For some members, it is a retreat location where we gather to explore, work, learn, and play. All members stay ready to dash to the Sanctuary if/when necessary. We have 2 openings, suitable for individuals, a couple, or parent and youth. We would only consider youth who are capable of grown-up behavior whenever it is needed (minimum age about 8).

The Sanctuary is strictly private, not associated with any government, business, or religion. At all times we operate completely in “family” mode, never in “landlord-tenant” mode. We will keep all communications confidential. Write to zimindrixli at the mail service that is a cheer of success or discovery.

I’m 33, male, in good health, and have no prepping skills.  My work has been in mental health, technical support.  I’ve just recently realized how bad things are and am looking to see if there are groups that accept untrained people this late in the game.  All I have is some food stockpiled, a firearm, and some basic supplies.  I can pay for any of my own supplies.  It’s knowledge and experience I need.  I appreciate any advice.

We are now taking applications to join our non-denominational sustainable Christian Community in the mountains of BC.  A Statement of Faith has been adopted and a comprehensive vision and method of self governance in accordance with Biblical principles, based on the Law of Love is being drafted by ourLeadership council.

The 200 acre remote property is a twohour drive from the city and includes 11 fenced off acres with gardens, orchards, pastures, barn, a large communal gathering/eating/office building and housing for at least 30 people. All buildings are of the highest workmanship and have been well maintained. There are also laundry facilities, luxury outhouses, four wells, an irrigation system, an industrial workshop with heavy equipment and back up propane generators. Theriverfront wilderness includes a swimming hole, an exquisitely designed house of worship, a 10acrecampground with 5 off grid riverfront cabins and RV sites, multiple outhouses and a central showerhouse.   With food already growing in abundance, sustainability is within reach and labour can be focused on necessities like establishing a greenhouse, garden andbackup power grid.

If you love the Lord, nature and long for a simple lifestyle built on faith, family and community we invite you to contact us at your earliest convenience at [email protected]

I just read through the posts on this string and all seem to be at least months old.  I thought I would start with a little background about me and see if there may be others who have/are similarly experiencing what I am.   I am a Christian, have watched the world’s events for years, and have recently moved to NWA as I felt lead, by the Lord, to do so.  So, I retired, packed up, and moved.  I am here a couple of months, getting acclimated and feel an intense desire to help in the preparation(s) of a place that will be a shelter,  a support, and will supply basic needs for other like minded individuals.  If this sounds familiar, and others are feeling lead accordingly, or would like to talk this through, please let me know.  I don’t have all the answers, only a desire to help as the Lord leads me.   Thank you.  Reply or email me 2021fgm gmail.

Hi,

We are a Homestead located off grid in the aquarius mountains in northwestern Arizona.  We are looking for members who want to be a part of the community, participate in chores and projects and help make self sustaining living a reality for our community.  We have a farm, greenhouse and are finishing our the infrastructure.  We need people who can help and want to live this lifestyle.

Hi all – I’ve been prepping in earnest since the Y2K scare.  I’m an IT Consultant by day (that’s why Y2K freaked me out!) and am an advanced martial arts and self-defense instructor (20+ years).  From storing food, investing in water filtration, and building Faraday cages to store my electronics after an EMP to stockpiling guns & ammo, making my own medical-grade colloidal silver (anti-bacterial, anti-viral, anti-fungal) and much more, I bring a lot to the table and have invested heavily over the past 20 years.  I have advanced survival skills, first aid skills (plus many first aid supplies), and firearms skills plus other skills – carpentry, electrical, farming, etc.  I have a huge survival library that I have built over the years including information on natural medicinal cures from plants, booby traps, fortification, etc.  I’ve also written several books on survival and self-defense myself.  I can teach others and I am capable of handling much that would be asked of me.

I’m looking for others who are serious about preparing, like-minded and willing to work and invest time and resources in our future together.

I’m looking for like-minded people to join me and my tight-knit group to weather this storm no matter how bad it gets and how long it takes.  We prepare JUST IN CASE.  Not preparing is not an option; that’s why we are in this group.

My biggest gap in my preps is a separate bugout location that can be made ready for long-term survival.  I have alternates, but would love to find someone with decent acreage / land that has one or more water sources on it (stream, lake, pond, well) than can be farmed and fortified.  I have the ability to filter many millions of gallons of water.

Reach out to me at mr.pjcpete @ g m a i l . c o m with the Subject “Prepper Groups Inquiry” if you want to touch base and see if we are a fit to move forward.

I am in the Wilkes-Barre, PA area. (NEPA)

Good luck prepping!

-Pete

Our area now has a new prepper group that started 4 March 21.

We have objectives such as 2 broad fields of discussion and development: health care and machinery ranging from batteries to windmills.

Quarantine restrictions governing, we initiated a visit to a well established prepper group.

Already volunteered to help state’s vaccination program.

At meeting, distributed mental health awareness publication.

We are governed by the FEMA doctrine “Prepare for realistic, worst case scenerios”.

I’m testing to see if there’s any interest in starting a group of emergency preparedness-minded folks around Corvallis, Albany, and Lebanon, Oregon.

The group would be family-friendly, with an eye toward mutual assistance (MAG), training (defense, gardening, alternative power, bush craft, homesteading, etc.). Meet-ups would be at least once a month at someplace local, and training would be done informally by members of the group.

Mar 022021
 

We are a couple who has recently moved from the coast to the mountains. Obviously being new in the area we are looking not only for like minded people, but also a group who understands the concept of being prepared for hard times be it natural or man made issues. We do not believe that “lone wolfing it” is an extremely viable option because every individual brings skills, knowledge, and different experiences to the table. Our goal is to find a good group or, if there are none that fit our criteria, to build a group from scratch. If you are part of a group, or are interested in being part of one, please email us at [email protected]

Recently lost my wife after a long illness – so looking for a group where I can be an asset – not another mouth to feed. Currently in eastern Wyoming/Black Hills region but location is not important – I’m selling the ranch. 20 year vet (REMF – not a gun fighter) so I know how to take and execute orders and understand/support Chain of Command, I can build/maintain/repair anything to do with structures, grew up on ranches so animal care is fine, have a gun fighter tools, reloading stuff, construction tools/equipment, tractors, livestock, am fit (not taking any drugs of any sort), can work my grown kids into the dirt, financially secure. Looking for a Christian group (no sense rubbing each other wrong) that I can contribute and make a difference. P.S> Yes I can stand watch – I do know which end the rounds come out of. I received a fair bit of training while in (we were expected to guard and defend our own outposts.) I build my own ARs. God Bless, KDC

I have a small ranch in eastern Wyoming (Black Hills area) that I have spent a significant amount of time, money, and labor trying to get ready for the storm blowing down on us.  Still lots to do.. My wife recently passed after a long illness and the kids are all grown and gone.  So it’s just me now.  So if you are interested in building a safe haven with a like minded group please contact me…   Big house with lots of room, trailer house (14×50 ft), RV parking, room to build whatever we want, established garden, livestock.

The pieces are in place – just need the labor, skills, and right attitude to create something for all of us.  And I am follower of Christ so pls keep that in mind but I don’t believe in that PreTrib nonsense – we’re all going to go through the crap that is barreling down on us.

God Bless,

KDC

Hello, I live in Livingston Tx and I am in my 50’s.

I am currently seeking land to set up for when the SHTF…..

If you have land for sale, or wanting to start a group of like minded folks, or already have a group of like minded folks looking for members to join, or just want to talk about what we can do for when the time comes to bug out, I am interested.

I have several skills, can’t say that I am a master of any of them but I am willing to share what I know and learn from those that have skills to share also.

Please send me a reply and we can go from there.

Feb 132021
 

Hello to all!
