Active ? , yes , but it came as a shock to me . In retrospect I'd have to say I've been prepping since about '75 , but we didn't call it that then . It was common sense "take care of you & yours against whatever misfortune might befall you " kind of thinking . The sort of thing we do without giving it a second thought . It takes time though , and resources , and patience. The one thing I never gave much thought to , was a network of like minded . I've picked up a lot of knowledge over the years , and some things . It would be good to talk with folks who think as I do .

I live in Jackson county, in the Munith/Stockbridge area. I'm new to the group and consider myself a semi-new prepper. I've done prepping kind of ADD style, unfortunately, but I think I'm starting to figure things out. :)

My sister and I have houses on 18 shared acres. We have a small garden between us (literally between us), but I want to expand it this year. I would also like to add some more fruit trees. I have a large fenced in area that was a dog lot, but I don't have a dog anymore. So this spring I'm converting a shed to a coop and adding chickens.

Looking forward to learning from each of you.

Welcome. I'm new to the site also. I am in Jackson County. I'm still somewhat new, but I'm eager to learn. I look forward to hearing about your group.

We try to meet at least once a month to discuss things though sometimes it's hard with everybody's work schedule. Thanks for the interest it's good to hear that others are taking or starting to get prepared.good luck anything i can do to help let me know

Hi all. It is good to see more joining. I joined about a month or two ago and was not getting any interest. We live in Lenawee close to Jackson. We too are beginers but coming along nice.

Ah, another successful trip to Sam's Club. I always feel a little better adding to my supplies. I found 3 large medal military containers at a warehouse which will work great for storing my dry goods. My plan is to store various supplies in these, Rice, Beans, Flour, salt, sugar etc. to secure them from any bugs or varmits that could possibly find there way into my basement. I'm also excited about a Cabela's opening in March in my neck of the woods. No more shipping costs for ammunition and other equipment. Just feeling good about my prepping and wanted to do a shout out.... :D

WE are here in Ionia County Michigan, right next door, we have been "Prepping" since before "Prepping" was cool, or for that matter before they called it prepping. 20 plus years.

Hello michiganders, I currently live in lapeer county area with my wife and 2 boys but will be moving to Grand Traverse area this spring when my house is done being built. Iv been prepping for over 10 years but I have been really stock piling and prepping heavily for the last 5 years. Wouldn't mind meeting some friendly preppers in my area, If poopoo hits the fan I would like to be able to pull resources together with other preppers I can trust in my area.

Howdy fello preppers, I hopes of getting to know some real local ppl to me to share ideas and learn from each other...We are pretty self sufficient already as we are hunters, Fishers, and gardeners. We supply about 80% of what we eat this way. We also have many skills in creating our own tools and weapons for daily use. Hope to hear :clap: from ppl that would like to get together.

If there are....lets get some discussions goin about our area. I personally am not looking to meet up. (too many creepers out there) but it would be nice to get to know some fellow preppers in my area.

Hi all, been out for awhile lots of overtime. Glad to see more people taking being prepared seriously. Update on our group in Berrien County. We are still at 7 strong in our gruop and still try to meet once a month. We collectively look for deals on things and then buy in group to get better deals. We have added a lot of food stores and water since january. Hope you all continue to be ready for shtf, we believe it's coming sooner than later.just keep watching and listening to whats being said and whats not. Good :gunsmile: luck.

Branch County here...
20 years farming and "unofficially" prepping.
I actually watched this site for a long time before joining
I was (still am) really impressed with the mindset of the members.
Thanks for the challenge...I will attempt to add my 2 cents more.
