The basic survival group consists of around five close friends who all live within an hour's drive of one another. The group should not be more than 10-12 people. If it reaches that size, it should split in two. Your group should meet once a week to practice together. If it can't, then you don't have a group. The group should communicate with each other, even if only a quick status update, at least once every couple of days. If your collection of like-minded friends expands to more than 10 people, the association of groups should meet once a month to practice with one another. The association should all be within an hour's drive of one another.
