This past weekend turned out to be a very educational and eye-opening. I attended the Charlotte PrepperCon in Charlotte, NC and found myself by the end of the day more informed and also intrigued.
Steve Nolan of SurvivalWeek.com put on an exellant presentation on EMP. Very educational. He combined tremendous verbal information with a series of related pictures which were shown behind him as he talked. The combination really went well together and helped make the entire presentation work.
By the way – this is the first preparedness conference I have managed to get my wife to attend. The EMP presentation above certainly helped open here eyes a bit to the threats that exist in this world.
Rich Davis of DCG Real Assets gave what I found to be a complicated but very educational presentation on money, real assets, the history of monetary value, and governmental debts and deficits. Really good.
Engineer775 and SouthernPrepper1, aka Scott and David from YouTube did a great job discussing water and bugging out. Good people and their website PracticalPreppers.com offers some good preparedness supplies and serves.
SurvivalBlog.com guru James Wesley, Rawles called in after lunch and answered questions from the audience for around an hour. great information.
During the event I was able to meet a few readers who recognized me which was great.
I also had the opportunity to meet one of ModernSurvivalOnline’s sponsors – Two Sisters of the South. They specialize in food storage products and I was able to try a few samples of GoFood’s products. My favorite so far is the Corn Chowder which was very tasty. My 9 year old loved the Broccoli Cheddar. I picked up a couple of new samples to bring home. Brenda’s was a sweetheart.
I think the event has helped my wife see that I am not a complete nut – or at least I am not the only one. I expect over the next week or so we will talk more about what she heard and saw. My hope is she becomes more understanding of my preparedness.
The most eye opening experience from the conference actually came after I got home. I was given a copy of the movie “Agenda: Grinding America Down” from one of the vendors there. I had heard of the movie previously but really did not know what it was about. I will be doing a review of it soon – but as I type this Sunday afternoon I have become angry…..very angry from watching the movie.
All I can say right now as I watch it a second time is it is a must see movie. I wish every American would watch it.
If they did…..there eye’s would be wide open to what is really going on in this country.
