What do you bring to the table

Assets to include transportation, land, tools, plants, animal, seeds, 
Screening process
This is getting to know the person (discord, bbm group)for 1 to 4 years and get togethers about a dozen times at least so that everyone trusts everyone. Setting up caches in each others Holmes. Do they offer you supplies they have to much of. Do they offer to get you supplies because they are in a place that things are on sale. Do they offer to come give you a hand or pay for someone to help you in a emergency or to enhance the BOL. Me and my prepper friend regularly do this for each other.
Time or money is important in every part of life and especially in a MAG
A important facet to me is to have a ticket to enter the BOL. To have enough supplies on hand  for you and everyone you bring for 3months to a year or more depending on what the group decides. Also building the place to store your supplies. 
3 months at home. Double the preps in time, in different caches every 30- 100 kms on the way to BOL (members could share caches and leave anonymous msgs for eachother)
Preps need to be in different places at BOL an secondary BOL and at home in case of theft. 
A cool trick for caches I just thought up is put a big piece of metal then put a cache with ok things a foot under the big metal piece and two feet under the first put the essential things in another cache. This works in case someone with a metal detector finds your cache or someone's threatening you or your loved ones you give them the first cache.
I like 1month caches for secondary BOLs per family or 1 plastic barrel each using the above method. Chances are nobody will be watching the 2 BOL so the more caches you have in different places. The less chances you have of them all being discovered.
Their needs to be rules of conduct and sanctions going from extra duties to expulsion/ trial if theirs no rules of law. This would be a majority vote. One vote per family unit.
Some in know including myself know that some ppl will never be prepared but would be extremly useful TEOTWAWKI. So they prep for them and are content that their skills / work ethic/ blood relations are enough to get them in the group. THIS IS YOUR CHOICE and it's obviously 1000 times better than being one family alone like in 


Obviously it's going to feel like you did all the work and everyone else wasn't serious. You'd be right and what's worse chances are you have to accept 1 to 10 ppl with that doctor because he can't live without them. They'd all need to be screened as you will be sleeping in the same house or protected area. This can be done fairly cheaply using the LDS food calculator numbers and agricultural wholesale grain bins or buying approx 40 40kg bags of a grain at one time at a grain elevator. The space will become the problem quickly but at least you will have a doctor or nurse for ex to heal you in a TEOTWAWKI event such as 2 week state or province blackout.

    • I liked this one because the guy actually has a MAG and speaks from experience. For sure I'm one of the guys that pushes hard for a MAG. Probably because I've got a lot going and I'd rather have 500 perennials for five families than the 100 or so we have now. If your in central Canada and don't mind travelling once in a while check out my looking for a MAG post

    • Today we are creating a two hour long video about how to build a Rocket Oven.  This design is for indoor use although we show versions that have been modified to be weather resistant.  A Rocket Oven will do all of your baking without the environmental disaster associated with natural gas or electric ovens.  For those of you living or considering off grid, this uses fuel that is plentiful and readily found - as opposed to off-grid's dirty little grid secret: "propane".  As an added bonus, the environmental impact is far smaller than any other type of oven.

      Rocket Ovens use the same "engine" as a rocket mass heater.  An  insulated j-tube that pushes the burn temp so high that the smoke and creosote from a fire is also used as fuel.  The exhaust is very clean and the heat is hyper focused on the task at hand.  The designs in this video are "white oven" designs - the exhaust does not mingle with the food.

    • That's my great grandfather's barn. Must be over 50yrs old and straight as when it was first built. He helped enough others and built enough community to get this feat done. His kids and even great-grandchildren see this barn and know anything is possible. If he could build this with horses. There are no excuses for any of us.

      That is one of the stories I'm going to outline below. I'm going...

      1. Don't forget nothing.
      2. Have your musket clean as a whistle, hatchet scoured, sixty rounds powder and ball, and be ready to march at a minute's warning.
      3. When you're on the march, act the way you would if you was sneaking up on a deer. See the enemy first.
      4. Tell the truth about what you see and what you do. There is an army depending on us for correct information. You can lie all you please when you tell other folks about the Rangers, but don't never lie to a Ranger or officer.
      5. Don't never take a chance you don't have to.
      6. When we're on the march we march single file, far enough apart so one shot can't go through two men.
      7. If we strike swamps, or soft ground, we spread out abreast, so it's hard to track us.
      8. When we march, we keep moving till dark, so as to give the enemy the least possible chance at us.
      9. When we camp, half the party stays awake while the other half sleeps.
      10. If we take prisoners, we keep' em separate till we have had time to examine them, so they can't cook up a story between' em.
      11. Don't ever march home the same way. Take a different route so you won't be ambushed.
      12. No matter whether we travel in big parties or little ones, each party has to keep a scout 20 yards ahead, 20 yards on each flank, and 20 yards in the rear so the main body can't be surprised and wiped out.
      13. Every night you'll be told where to meet if surrounded by a superior force.
      14. Don't sit down to eat without posting sentries.
      15. Don't sleep beyond dawn. Dawn's when the French and Indians attack.
      16. Don't cross a river by a regular ford.
      17. If somebody's trailing you, make a circle, come back onto your own tracks, and ambush the folks that aim to ambush you.
      18. Don't stand up when the enemy's coming against you. Kneel down, lie down, hide behind a tree.
      19. Let the enemy come till he's almost close enough to touch, then let him have it and jump out and finish him up with your hatchet.
