This is kinda wordy so bear with me…

Had to take a Sabbatical to bounce back from life’s curves.

The last message I put on here about a year ago ended up in an OPSEC nightmare so I’ll relate some of the details for your edification.  A person I took on at my off-grid location asked if a relative could help out and after some discussion, I agreed.  I split my time between the BOL and regular accommodations elsewhere, so it sounded like a great idea.  I counseled this young man after finding out about his past problems.  He seemed to be onboard.  He learned to run farm equipment, basic firearms use, among other things.  All seemed well until I got a call about being stranded on a back road in one of my vehicles he had no permission to use.  By the time I got there, he had been medevac’d after a shootout with law enforcement, where a trooper had been injured.  He had been shot several times and lost an eye.  He was lucky depending on how you look at it.  To top it off, not only did I lose a vehicle in a hail of small arms fire, but he used a pistol I left in his care. How things can go South in a heartbeat.  Thankfully, God is merciful and I was exonerated after an interview with the lead investigator onsite without so much as a written statement.  As you can imagine as I rolled up wondering what had happened and identified myself as the owner of that vehicle and inquired about my “friend” the driver, it was a somewhat hostile situation.  Take from this what you will.  No matter what you do, you can’t always tell the character of people.  For that matter, especially in a high stress situation where common sense and any cognitive ability goes right out the window.  Taking on help has its caveats, so in large part, it’s a numbers game to find the people who’ll stick and share common goals.  With all the potential for upset during peacetime, I have no desire to see the conduct of people when the SHTF.  It’s a roll of the dice, even with family.  All you can do is all you can do.

That said, I need to continue making progress, not only in outward physical improvement onsite, but personally.  Joined a thousand yard range and bought a rifle and putting together a weapon system to take advantage of that distance. I look forward to it. The weather has been great and putting in seat time on the bike.  Getting back on a motorcycle is a joy I had long forgotten.  Got my DOD ID and look forward to a spontaneous military hop to who knows where.  On top of that and even on death’s door several times, I am back in the saddle, lifting weights, getting on the treadmill and bicycling several times a week.  We perish for lack of knowledge.  In this current culture and lifestyle, it will spell our doom if we go along without great scrutiny.  I haven’t felt this good in a long time, with medical prognosticators giving me little time left.  Glad to prove them wrong.  So, if you are suffering a medical condition, it can be overcome in large part no matter what people say.  Many people including myself have come back against insurmountable odds.  It can be done.  So if you are so inclined, we can talk about that and I can share my methodology. We’re in this for the long haul.

So, back on track.  I have a nice small off-grid homestead that needs the cobwebs cleaned out and brought back to par and operational.  If you are interested in learning about alternative energy, homesteading, husbandry, etc., give me a shout. Especially any particular interests you have and would like to implement.  This sheepdog is still learning, so teach me if you can.

I do plan on getting grid power  to make certain modern amenities available.  I’ve been off-grid several times and for enough years to know what it takes.  I like having certain conveniences to make life easier, like at my other place.  I can tell you this, I’ve been through the learning curve and it wasn’t easy.  Too many people have put up stuff and have not tested nor proven those things in the false Idea, it’ll be there and work when it’s needed.  Bad idea.  SHTF is not the time to have meetings about how to work and do stuff.  Just my .02

I did close up the outside of a small house/cabin and the inside is yet to be finished.  It’s sort of a template of an easy to erect living accommodation for future expansion.  So far, that’s been pretty painless.  I have another solar system that would be installed on that structure, a couple  200+ watt panels, several 200AH AGM batteries.  Switching from lead acid to AGMs to eliminate the need for distilled water and other maintenance.  More expensive but better.  Got a big pretty mule.  16 hands 2. Big and stubborn.  Imagine a thousand pound pitbull. She watches the place. Tractor, backhoe, shipping containers, outbuildings, and plenty of work.  Cleared in the front, mostly wooded in the back.  It’s pretty land and needs people, otherwise, why the heck am I doing this, lol.

I am in South Central Missouri, Ozarks proper.  If you like good coffee and like good stories, I have tons to tell.  Give me a shout.  [email protected]  Let’s see what we can get done.

Take care and good luck,

Steve.

We are a small group between San Antonio and Corpus.  We are looking to expand our MAG.  We have 60 acres with a small lake stocked with fish, horses, cows, deer, turkey, quail, hogs, and dove.  We have a bunker project going right now.  We are looking for members with skills, their own gear (or trying to acquire).  We would like to meet at least once every 3 weeks for training and cookout.  We have a shooting range on the ranch (Pistol and rifle up to 400 yards).  Due to Opsec we will have to meet in San Antonio or Corpus to start the courting process and see if you will fit in the group.  I’m an engineer that welds, electrical, plumbing, ex-Military (Dessert Storm), etc.  The wife is a LVN and helps with all the Preps.  We have 2 small children that are just getting acclimated to the life when they are not on their tablets going brain dead.  Reply here and further communication will follow outside of this site.

Southwestern Oregon Preppers (SWOP) will be holding a meeting at Noon on Saturday, June 8, 2019 at the Bandon Library, Sprague Room, 1204 11th St SW, Bandon, OR 97411.

The main topic is “WHY YOU SHOULD BE PREPARED TO EVACUATE”. When a disaster is imminent, you must be prepared to evacuate aka “bug out”. We will discuss ideas, strategies, tactics and plans for leaving the area.

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 to depend on receiving outside help. Join Southwestern Oregon Preppers on Facebook and/or meetup.com.

We are a Christian based group that are centered in northeastern Illinois, mostly in and around McHenry county.  We are looking to add a few more serious survivalist/preppers to broaden our skill sets.  We already have professional medical, building skills, law enforcement and ex-military members, but we can always use more.  We are NOT and never will be a militia group, but we will defend ourselves.  If your interested in finding a group where you can learn, teach and grow, contact us to learn more and to be considered for membership.  I can be reached at [email protected]

Hi!

I’m new to Central Ohio from the East Coast and I’m in search of people in the area who are willing to share their knowledge with a chick who’s eager to learn.

I have some general knowledge about various survival skills, but I’ve never had the opportunity to practice them with someone who is knowledgeable and experienced. I’m looking to learn the following:

–archery
–fishing and cleaning fish
–Local edible/medicinal wild plant identification and harvesting
–Carving
–Knife sharpening

I do have knowledge about various things that I’d be happy to share, although I’m not sure how relevant my knowledge is to SHTF scenarios….

Baking/cooking from scratch, health insurance, basic sewing, childcare /child development, psychology, floral arrangements… ummm…. I can help you decode what your wife might want from you? I know enough about a lot of little things, so ask me and maybe I know stuff you’re interesting in?

This is simply a fishing expedition to see if there are any interested parties West of St. Louis that might be interested in getting together and discussing the current situations our region may be facing on a National, State and Local  level.  I, for one, have no faith in anyone other than a couple of close associates that I genuinely trust, in being able to deal with the aftermath of an SHTF event for whatever reason it may occur.  My motives here are to identify information that may be useful in planning, as well as identifying and engaging like that minded individuals that are patriots, that support, and would be willing to defend the Constitution of the United States, which I believe is and has been being eroded in content and authority.  I am not interested in discussing or debating anything related to left-wing thought or beliefs, which I find, on their face, immoral, unethical and completely against the thought processes which led to the need for America to be fought for originally.  I bear no malice towards anyone that holds these left-wing beliefs as valid and important, but as for me, they are a waste of valuable time, and more tragically a waste of the blood spilled by patriots that originally provided our freedom and those that have displayed the courage and willingness to honorably defend it to this day, even if they were deceived into believing it was necessary by others with ulterior motives.  I have no final objective in throwing this line in the water, but if you think things are or may not be as we are being led to believe, and are in the area mentioned above, let me hear from you.

Hello fellow Zonies, I am currently based in Valley of the Sun. Looking to buy my own off-grid property soon and would like to network with others who have experience with setting up/using off-grid power and utilities systems. Not looking to get scammed, pay off someone else’s property or join any groups. Just looking to network and meetup with like-minded others, exchange knowledge and train/develop skills together, especially that which pertains to living off-grid full-time. Please send a private message to my inbox on this website if any interest.

I am new here. While I have been a prepper for many years, it has always been in a sort of vacuum (member of 1). My partner (of 5 years) is on board with preperations, but as a group of two, we are very vulnerable.

What outlets for gathering does the Georgia community have? Are there any annual events in Georgia or group meetings? I respect other’s privacy, so not looking to connect right away with anybody, but eventually would be nice to make some connections to people within say a 25 mile radius. Let’s just say I am in the Stone Mountain area, but not IN Stone Mountain. Enough said. The town of Stone Mountain has it’s own fair share of issues.

I look to events that deal with farming, old times and self sufficiency, but wonder if there are any “prepping” type shows that make it to Georgia? Agrirama (Tifton) is one of my favorite places to visit, but that is quite a bit South for me now.

I think we live in a great area, with an appropriate number of neighbors (not too densely populated). Problem is I have NO idea how many of them are like minded or even able bodied?

Done Right Prepper here on the southside of Indpls. I have lived here my whole live and I am a General Contractor for the last 10 years. I have 5 daughters and 6 G-babies.

TENNESSEE – We have 100 acres with 14 homes and 35 one acre lots out in the country that we are turning into a Christian preppers retreat. This was a catfish farm before we purchased it in the late 80’s. Since then, until recently we have been renting the homes out. Now we are selling them- $39,000 – to $285,000. One acre lots are also available with rights to our 11 acre lake and ponds for fishing as well as other areas of the property (we are carrying some owner financing – we do not owe anything on our property). We have an abundant supply of what may be the best water in the world. We have 7 wells on our property that we can not pump dry. One well is a 3″ commercial well that I have been told pumps one million gallons in a 24 hour period. God has blessed us with one of Tennessee’s most beautiful properties. I too am in the ministry. Have been ministering in the U.S. and in missionary work for the past 49 years. Please contact me and I will give you more info, along with our password protected website. We are not advertising where we are located or the name of our property. We were planning on doing this by “invitation only” but realized we need to broaden this to include others. We are “balanced” preppers. We have a lot of plans for the property that is going to be a blessing to those who either live here permanently or have this property for their getaway when it becomes necessary. We have a chapel in the middle of it. We would love to share additional info with you as well as other like minded fellow Believers. Please share how I can get in touch with you and I will share with you my telephone number so we can talk.

Looking to see if there are any folks in the area living a prepared/self-sustaining style of life. I’m a simple Bible preacher that has lived the life on the other side in many areas in my younger days. There are a few of us that prepare for uncertainties with our primary preparedness on where we will go when we end this mortal walk and move on to eternity. We are fundamental Bible folks who know God allows nations to rise and fall throughout man’s time and not every calamity is the end of days. As we strive for Heaven, we understand that we must walk in today and be prepared for what happens in a very chaotic and uncertain world. We are not pacifist, never defend yourself folks, but we don’t believe in the need to go look for problems in a shtf event. Plenty of problems will present themselves without looking for more or creating them. If you are of like mind in this area let me know.

Hello! We are a very small group at the moment, just getting up from smaller ideas right now. We are looking to make our group bigger and start building. I haven’t found anyone other than our group so far that would be willing to build with us. Each of us has a particular set of skills, ranging from engineering to construction and welding. We have some preparations made already. We are open to many skill levels, you must be open minded, okay with the possibility of things changing and willing to work with families. Let me know if you’re interested!

Hello,

Not finding a lot for groups in STL. Urban survival has its own considerations and getting together a group in or closer to the city sounds like a good idea.

My wife and I are in our upper 20s, I’m previous military. We’re relocating down to STL next week. We’re pretty fresh to prepping so all preparedness and skill levels welcome. We’re willing to teach what we know, but more inportantly, willing to learn.

Our main concerns are riots and social unrest. I’m sure you locals are well familiar with that. Looking to get some friends with an interest in mutual protection.

Wouldn’t hurt to have a few regular range buddies as well. Having a familiar face in the new city would be nice to get.

I’ll check this but you’ll get faster response emailing [email protected]

Thanks and good luck

Looking for an existing family orientated group or like minded family preppers looking to form a group. Myself and my two boys have been prepping for a year now. But we know like minded people are where it’s at. Must be serious about prepping and know how to have fun at the same time. Also be open minded. And want to work towards common goals and wish to improve and be the best you can be.

Does anyone know of any kind of training or recruiting groups near Quincy, IL? I have some skills and some “hardware.” I am looking for more than just militia style prepping groups. There is so much more than that. I am searching for groups with morals and conscious, and gardening, water purification, etc. Contrary to popular belief Illinois isn’t all liberal commies. I am a Jesus loving man. Just reaching out, I have no land, just a few skills, a little hardware and God.
