    I live in Willard (close to Springfield) and am looking for a group to connect with. I would be willing to start one if I knew where to look for interested participants. Any suggestions? Thanks!

    1. leigh

      I also live in the Willard area on a small farm and have started prepping. I am a little cautious on who i would contact for many reasons but it would be great to find a few good people to have a more local nework in my area. What are your thoughts?

      1. Kris

        Hi Leigh!

        I know exactly what you are talking about with “cautiousness”…(is that a word?) I don’t want everyone that I know showing up to claim my hard work and resources because they couldn’t be bothered to do it themselves : / .

        I would really like to try and start up a local group to just bounce ideas off of and maybe share in some bulk purchases. I have some friends in Fair Grove who are looking for the same.

        Email me if you want to try and get together :) ftgspfld@aol.com


        1. leigh

          I found out about a group that meets in springfield every friday at ziggies 530pm, sounds like they give a fountain of information there from what I hear. I’m going to try and give it a go. Still will look for people a short horse ride from me,,,lol

          1. Kris

            Awesome! Which Ziggies? I will try to make it :) -Kris

          2. leigh

            the one at sunshine and glenstone, maybe i’ll see you there, its in the lamplighter i think

      2. Renee

        Hey Leigh, we live here in springfield, meaning my husband, my son and I. We are looking to join up with some people to work together with everything going on. Draw off of each others strong points. Please let me know if you are interested in meeting maybe working together to start and setup a group of people that are trustworthy.
        Thanks Renee

        1. joe

          Ginger, I am actively trying to form a “community” of sorts. If/when the shtf, its gonna take a community to thrive/ defend. Every Sunday at 4:00 at radiant light church, we discuss this very stuff. You are welcome to attend. If you just want/ info/advice, you can email me at joeringuette@yahoo.com. I too am going through a split with my long time girlfriend, but she has always thought I was crazy anyway for my prepping, so that hasn’t affected my preparedness except that I do it alone now instead of having a partner. Contact me anytime.

        2. leigh

          we should try and meet up some time, there are meetings at ziggies on friday nights at 6pm at sunshine and glenstone my daughters and I have been to a few and have picked up some information there. Let me know if you will be going to one and we will try and meet up there. L

          1. Kris

            Hi Leigh!

            I went to Ziggies and looked around on a Friday night and couldn’t figure out which group you guys were : /. There were people everywhere and I just left. Where do you guys usually sit?


          2. Leigh

            the main room normally, some order dinner first, we havent been the last 3 weeks, work,,,,blaaa next time just ask one of the wait staff and they will tell you.

    2. Cody Johnson

      1. Kris

  4. Joe

    I would love to see a group formed in Southeast ,MO. Jefferson County area. I am a hardcore prepper, and I have alot of skills to share to my fellow Americans. I am a former Anti-Terrorism Instructor and NBC Instructor. I am teaching my self Blacksmithing and I recommend that everyone learns a skill that can be used in the event I believe will happen in the near future. Anyone who wants to share knowledge is free to contact me by my email at joeringuette@yahoo.com.

    1. Ginger

      Hi Joe,

      I just ran across your post and have just started looking for preppers in my area. I’m in Cape County and live in Jackson. I’m not sure, but I’m thinking Jefferson County is in/around the St. Louis area.

      I had ALWAYS been prepared while I had my family (survival kits in the car and lets not forget the whole Y2K) but my sons are now grown and I’m divorced so I’m now having to start all over. I would certainly appreciate any help you could give me regarding “long term” survival. My email is only1ginger@yahoo.com.


  5. David

    I can’t find the information about the Kansas City Prepper group. I clicked on the Meetups page link. However, my computer was never able to find the information.

    John, if you or someone else could contact me with when and where you meet, I would really appreciate it.




  6. Lois

    My husband and I are an interracial couple. Interested in purchasing a small homestead in Missouri. He is a former Marine and I am a nurse. Our budget is limited but we have begun prepping and would like to meet likeminded people to network. We are in Illinois now but Missouri bound! We don’t want to be on top of the New Madrid fault, but would consider anywhere else where racial tolerance would be found.

    1. Joe ringuette

      Lois, first, I am also a Marine, so to ur husband, Semper Fi! I live in Jefferson County, MO. In a town called desoto,. This place is racially tolerant, though it is a shame that this is even an issue u have to deal with. Anyway the county I live in is rich in hunting and has the cleanest water in the country. My fiance and I have just begun prepping ourselves and are also seeking like minded people to come together with in the coming crisis. As a plus we have our church meeting every Sunday that meets and also discusses prepping and the forming of a community it this said crisis. Each week we have “assignments” that we are tasked with to research that we then bring to the next meeting to discuss, such as gardening, canning, and my specialty, defense, which I am sure, ur husband can contribute to, being a U.S. Marine….Ooh Rah! Feel free to contact me I can give u more info or discuss with u or ur husband what we can do. God Bless.

  7. Kevin
