Chance favors the prepared mind.

Open to all faiths, beliefs and lifestyles. BAR NONE.

We are rooted in love, not based on fear.
Inspired to ease suffering through empowerment of families with knowledge, we balance masculine and feminine principles to benefit Humanity. Always provided free of charge.
This is NOT a survival group that plans to work together in the event of a “Grid down” scenario, but rather a group of individuals focused on SELF PRESERVATION AND CARE OF OUR LOVED ONES.

This is not a stereotypical (all male, God and guns) survival group. Atheist, Muslim, Jew, LGBT, Families, Immigrants – all people are welcome. Don't be scared, get prepared.

Our meeting topics include but are not limited to -

Sovereignty / Natural Law / flexing the U.S. Constitution / self reliance / food preservation and storage / water procurement and purification / making shelter / lethal and non lethal defense / Nuke-Chem-Bio issues / self reliant psychology / bartering / family oriented strategies and techniques / civil unrest / firearm basics / gardening in small spaces / natural disasters / stealth and subterfuge / resisting martial law / emergency medicine and trauma care / repelling home invasions / wilderness survival / fire making and fire fighting / tracking / traps and snares / animal skinning and butchering / urban escape and evasion / hygiene / home heating options / off Grid living

Be sure to look into our huge FILE section. It is loaded with free information for you to download and share with others. There are many viewpoints represented in our group. With the exception of the U.S. Constitution, we always insist that ALL POLITICS BE LEFT AT THE DOOR. All meetings are family friendly and most folks find them to be fun and engaging even as we deal with deadly serious subjects.

Our Mindset - Courage is not the absence of fear but action in spite of it.
It always has been and always will be the power of the mind that has the most influence on the course of human events. Our DNA has earned it's right to be here and now. It is up to us from here on out.

Understand your relationship to the Grid - All energy and delivery systems - electricity, store bought food, heating fuel, gasoline, potable water, GPS, cell/smart phones, landline phones, trucks and trains to transport goods to stores and consumers. Police , Fire and EMTs ready to help you deal with emergencies.

Natural Law and Sovereignty- Autonomy, freedom, self-determination, self-government, self-rule. Your body is your property. All law is property law. You were born, you exist. You have a Natural Law right to keep yourself and family alive. Your rights stop where the rights of others start. If your existence is under threat, or your loved ones', there is no law above your choice to live. It is a choice.
