So why not gather ‘friends’ and possible team members from those you are taking classes with, the lady who teaches canning down at the community college? The Boy Scout leader down the road? Etc.

Some of my best contacts aren’t ‘preppers’ or ‘survivalists’ per se, but are better prepped than most dedicated preppers just because of their normal lives.
The canning instructor, the master gardeners, the quilting instructors, the members of the “society for creative anachronism’, all have something to contribute even if it’s only knowledge.
