Marietta Preppers Networking Group Message Board › Meeting subjects

Meeting subjects

A former member
Hi Guys,

Happy Holidays to all. We have nearly doubled the size of the group in the last couple of months and I'm looking for suggestions as to subjects you'd like to talk about. You can email me directly or just respond to the group.

Here are a few of the things I'm interested...

  • What to wear when SHTF and it's time to bug out? Look strong or blend in?
  • Prepping... where to begin.
  • How to form a community and have strength in numbers should the lights go out.
  • What a bug out bug MUST contain.
  • Bug out locations... do I have to buy another house?
  • Where will be a strategically safe place to go when SHTF?
  • A bug out location. What does it need to entail?

My wife an I have developed a pretty strong philosophy on bug out bags and where you should start and where to go from there. I wouldn't mind be a presenter on that topic sometime.

I too don't have a clue as to what to wear MOLLE Load Vests, Body Armor, backpacks etc. or just what kind of clothing. I think that it is something that needs to be brought up. also can you start marking what each meet up is going to be about it would be good to know.

I've actually researched this quite a bit, and the general consensus is contrary to what I thought. I think looking like a marine or military would make you less susceptible to a random attack. I mean, if they steal your BOB, then what? But I've seen many say that it's better to just blend in with the masses until you are away and alone. Then you can don your camo and mil spec gear. I'd be interested in hearing what others think about this topic..

If you plan to carry a rifle or shotgun, does it really matter what kind of backpack you are wearing?

On the topic of meeting Topics, I'd like to put my name in the hat for helping.

I've been a Boy Scout instructor for a few years and can easily do instruction on Using a compass or Sharpening knives. i can do other survival/camping topics, but would need a few weeks prep time.

Things I'd like to learn:
Getting Starting - Priorities
Bug Out Location selection

-Derek (father of the two prepper boys last week)

On, "What's fashionable when the SHTF", the person I am least likely to bother is wearing a suit, white shirt, no tie, sweating, limping, dragging a computer bag-on-wheels with a few papers hanging out: why bother :-)
Looking military would only be good if you were with a larger group of military looking types. Joining and blending into a group, or forming one would be your best defense if you were traveling, say walking home from a disaster.

I think a worthwhile topic would be "How to get started, first time breaking ground." I know from personal experience that it takes years of preparation to build up viable soil, and just as many years of study and experimentation to learn to grow, transplant, and cultivate seedlings to edible maturity, and preserving the over-production all season long, for winter. We could get a member of the Georgia Master Gardeners groups to present on the gardening part.
I would like to hear from a medicinal herb specialist (we would have to select carefully here, many of them are so much voodoo they scare me off). There are many, legitimate, well documentes uses for many herbs. Separating the wheat from the bat guano is the problem.
I would like to hear from a sociologist about civilization rebuilding. There have been enough sizable disasters and recoveries in recorded history for someone to do some futuring regarding how rebuilding is likely to take place and how some knowledgeable group can facilitate that rebuilding.

I would love to learn about where to go if you have to bug out and what would make a good bug out location. I am also interested in anything related to sustainability...gardening skills would be great to learn about!!:)
