Maybe I’ve been out of the loop for awhile. Maybe I’ve been asleep at the helm. Maybe the world has just been passing me by, but how it is that I didn’t know about all the prepper expos going on around the country? I was surfing through the news the other day and read a story about an expo that had just ended in Tulsa, Oklahoma. After reading the article I got curious and did a Google search and bam! A pile of hits. If you’re curious you might want to check out Prepper Shows USA to find an expo.
Or you might want to check out unknown.Com’s list.
If one of these ever comes to Maine, Mass., or Vermont I might have to go check it out. I’d love to be around that many folks who are all there because they’re preppers. Living in Maine I think a good many people share a little bit of the prepping philosophy because many of them have been stranded at home for a day or two because of the snow. You’d think that would teach a person a little self reliance. Usually it does, but I still know people with nothing more than a day’s food in their cupboards. These are the same folks who say, “Well, if anything happens I’ll just come to your house.”
To which I answer, “Fine, as long as you want to work your ass off to help survive.”
Anyway, I digress.
I can’t imagine being at one of these prepper expos and hearing someone say that. He or she would probably get their ass kicked back to Mayberry.
If we ever have one in Maine I need to look into setting up a booth for SHTF Blog. How much fun would that be? Hanging out while all you secret readers popped in to say hi to me and Road Warrior. (I doubt Calamity Jane would drive too far from her doomstead in Idaho.)
I could run some Land Nav courses and Road Warrior could do some cool gun stuff. I’d do it just to meet lots of awesome people.
Anybody out there been to one of these expos? If so please let me know what it was like in the comments section or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org.
