Recruiting Camping/Prepping Steering Committee members for San Jose/ Bay Area community


Looking for fun cooperative people who believe that supportive and engaged community would be the best way to survive the zombie apoccalypse or climate change catastrophy.  🙂

I am looking for light hearted people who are enthusiastic about prepping through camping, and building a supportive local community.  I am looking to form a steering committee to set the agenda for future meetings, talks and knowledge shares around the topics of camping, prepping, water purification, urban foraging, fire making, basic chemistry, shelter in place and first aid. 

Hope to hear from you soon!

@ubersciaticaI love this! If you want to reach out to the Berkeley REI store, my name is Dave and I would be happy to connect!

At REI, we believe time outside is fundamental to a life well lived.

Hi Dave!  Great to hear from you!  I will wait a week or two to see if there are other replies and then I'll reach out to you.  Glad to hear from you!

Hello all, I had no idea this site existed, just joined. You may need to use other means to get this message out ( to start with your neighbours and go wider as needed?) while this site gains more users. I am a novice when it comes to camping. My wife is a nurse practitioner and has experience in urgent care. I am an engineer and need to lerarn more about camping. But I have been looking to get the whole family go camping (two daughters 12 & 10).


Hey, Thanks for replying!

Yes, I am busy making a website relating to this and once it's done I will post on Meetup.  Nextdoor is a great idea too!  Thanks for your interest and I will contact you when the website is live!
