Hey Everyone.

I am reaching out to see if there are any other Los Angeles Area preppers looking to build a team so we can share information, resources, and skills; if needed.

Being prepared is great, but being part of a group with the prepper mentality, and knowledge, is even better!
I have a wide variety of knowledge in various subjects:

farming=soil/hydroponics/aeroponics/aquaponics
long-term food storage
earth cooling systems/setup
12v/120v/240v electrical system design/setup
solar system setup/design
water filtration system setup/design
water harvesting system setup/design
off-grid vehicle design/setup
HAM radio system operation/setup
cooking/baking/meat smoking/dehydrating

Yes, it is quite a random set of skills, but I am always looking to learn new things … especially if it will benefit my self-sufficient end-goals in life. (retirement = a remote off-grid farm)
Look forward to hearing from you.

This is my first post ever on one of these forums:

I can’t help but notice on these Prepper sites how many people who are attempting in forming groups or, dreaming of forming a group. We wish you success. We encourage you to take action now.

We are now at the tail end of our Prepper plans, its been a long road and a good deal of expense.

The past 15 years has been dedicated in developing our 120 acre ranch to be prepared for the worst and, It has not been an easy process. Its taking us far more time than I would have ever imagined to put this together well enough to insure the safety of our group. With over 1.8 million invested I can say that we are almost ready for anything….but not completely.

We have 16 bedrooms on site and have just about everything we need. from airplanes, drones, wells, 4 acres of organics, green houses, aqua culture, full-time organic farmers etc. to mention just a few. If I were to list out where we are on our project it takes 42 pages…..

I’ve listed where we are and where we are not – All of the information is in our membership proposal.

We have eight family slots left to complete our group. This is the first time we have looked outside for members and additional financing so I am not sure if what kind of interest level this post will generate. But here goes…..

Posting here was not in our plans- Its simply more attention than we wanted. We thought we could finish up this project on our own by now. With global issues getting more strange and uncertain everyday we are now looking for outside help to put this project to bed ASAP.

With this post, we are just starting to seek a few qualified members or families that are willing to invest. we really do not require your personal time as just about everything on the ranch is complete. What we require is money for the final items. (Family slot is: four persons to a family as we refer to a family membership)

We are also pet friendly as we have heaps of farm animals

With just eight slots left, we seek interested people with the ability to invest in our project. If, you are simply curious to how much we seek then you are most likely not our candidate. We seek eight families with the resources who are prepared to commit. Our family buy in plan is low cost- It is simply the cost for us to finish up and, not an attempt to recoup our investment.

If you believe that our group may be a place where you would fit in and find safe place to take your family we encourage you to contact us.

This is an opportunity to make a small investment and simply show up when all gos bad- everything is here and your bug out is stocked. This is not a pie in the sky group forming, its a project nearly complete.

I hope that everyone on this site finds what they are seeking. And to those who live in the city, that you  have made appropriate plans for your future safety.

Finally, anyone that can suggest to us additional places where we could post this request to reach our additional members – It would be appreciated- Thank you.

***************UPDATE December 25, 2018************

Still moving forward, adding a brewery and winery to the project. Ive still yet to find like minded people. All of my friends of course continue to tell me that my place is where they will come. But I tell them no- Either help me with the project, invest anything- Time, Resources etc but do not just show up because you do not have a place to go.

If you are serious about wanting a place that you can go to if things get bad then be serious enough to invest in at the very least your own food.

Hiring two full time gardners again this spring for the greenhouse and the garden

Added a few wood burners, bio char operation and a lot more since my last post

Greetings Preppers in Louisville, Kentucky area.

I am 51 years old and we have severally autistic son age 15.  I have been prepping for 3 years. We have house on the edge of the suburbs in Southern Indiana 30 minutes from Louisville. I have a family business with a warehouse close to the downtown area where I am building water filter sink stations and Faraday cage out houses on wheels.

I want to build a group of regular preppers and prepper families with special needs children and adults in the Louisville Kentucky and Southern Indiana area.

Family of five to ten 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 live a self sustaining life style full time and move to join a group or help start one. By living a self-sustainable lifestyle before you can survive while thriving after any crises that may occur.  I am not looking for a place to hide and die but a permanent change in lifestyle to start getting off the grid as we can and then staying off the grid in a secure, secluded area.

I don’t want to work hard and dumb but simple and basic.  I have a lot of tools and equipment.  I hope to also 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 can build a living structure.  Will be building some type of an earth structure from one of the following: Aircrete, CEB, (compressed earth block) Rammed Earth Bags and/or Adobe using the reactive home concept for a living structure (no mechanical heating or cooling) as taught by Bill Mollison long before Mike Reynolds’ Earth Ship concept ever came along.  I am thinking about build my own CEB press.  I also have the material to build a metal roof for a shop about 40’x40′ using earth walls from local soil.

I believe biofuel is one answer for renewable fuel and garbage scrap disposal.

Aquaponics is the only real answer to a year round renewable food source of meat and vegetables that I am aware of.  Built in a reactive greenhouse.

I have personal experience with compost toilets and have built two of them so far with good results.

We have a 2000 gal. rain catchment system in place at our current location.  Designed for a purification system that is renewable without going to the store for filters.  We built a furnace to make activated charcoal to use with sand (which is in abundance).  We have most of the purification system already assembled and ready for food grade 55 gal barrels.

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 all I can 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.  With changes in electrical consumption we have cut our usage in half over the last year getting ready to switch to solar and wind with battery storage.  I am leaving the old 120v system in place so I can take the new system with me.

I have a wife, two sons, (23 & 31) a daughter-in-law, daughter (26) with 3 year old son all in better than average health.  We also have friends who want to go with us as time will permit them to do so.

No medications required for any of us as we use essential oils, herbs and supplements and hopping to start grow a lot of what we will need.  I am looking forward to learning more on how to make tinctures and our own E oils.  As well as canned and fermented foods(the more of this the less refrigeration needed).   We are all 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 a highly populated area 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 Army Vet 73 to 77 was an E5 Motor Sgt in Schweinfurt, Germany.

We have construction experience, electrical, plumbing, welding, machine, metal buildings & roofs (one retro fit roof the size of two foot ball fields 82′ up), mechanic of both gas and diesel, solar hot water system, semi truck driver, some reloading experience and equipment, certified gun smith (passed a test), canning experience with canning equipment and much more.

I have worked relief on two hurricanes working almost 30 days with each one.  So I have seen total destruction, civil disorder, rioting, marshal law with state troopers and national guard.  I’ve also seen families who were desperate and not prepared at all along with families who never missed a beat as they were ready for the natural disaster that hit.  I lived at a mission base 13 years ago with my oldest son for two months in the Amazon without power so we ate meat only when we had caught or killed it.

Eleven years ago we lived in a camper for one year on the road along the eastern coast from Niagara Falls, along the outer bank islands to Beaumont Texas then on to El Paso, down to Las Cruces, N.M, then from Sholo to Sahuarita, Arizona while homeschooling my two youngest.

We are debt free and looking to be in 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 are not looking for a group to join but one to be a part of to form friendship and trust where we cover each others back or 6 as some say.

We have served the Lord for 23 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 someone with a lot of money look somewhere else.  If you would like a Godly relationship with a hard working and honest family then we are open to more communications as to how we could fit together.  We can support ourselves and are not looking for a free ride.

If you want to talk about someday maybe doing something then please find someone who is looking to someday maybe doing 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.
