The lone wolf is dead. From what I have read (and agree with), the majority of articles that refer to a SHTF scenario mention the importance of seeing crisis through in a community of like-minded people. This is easier said than done because I also see a lot of questions or requests for help on “how can I find a prepper group” or “find people who believe in preparedness?”
I recently wrote about my experience with meetups. You can also link up with groups on Facebook and websites like – Prepper Groups or even watch from a distance on websites like Ustream. But one great resource that I seemed to have missed his Peak Prosperity’s Website – Resilient Life.
Peak Prosperity’s (formally Chris Martenson’s website) mission is: Building understanding so that effective solutions can be created and promoted. Visit the website for an expanded understanding of the mission.
But here is the great feature, you can connect with others online around common interests like: gold & silver, agriculture & permaculture, frugal living, firearms, backyard chickens, alternative energy, personal safety & home defense, relocation, preppers without partners, biointensive gardening, economy wonks and community building.
But that’s not all…you can also connect with others in your area – by location. If there isn’t a group in your area, you can start one. For instance, there is only one in my area – someone who is looking for advice as they relocate. But as more people become aware of this feature, more groups will spring up.
One other feature that the website offers are a tons of wikis on self-sufficiency. You can find well done articles on: home energy, food storage, community building, raising chickens, etc…
If you haven’t done so already, go over to Resilient Life and check it out.
