This looks to be a great event and I am going to do the best I can to attend. Maybe I can drag the wife there – although I don’t see my 7 year old sitting still. Maybe I can get SouthernPrepper1 and Engineer775 to watch him when they are not speaking.

Just a thought.

  1. Darn, wrong part of NC for me. I’ve got to be in SE Va. that evening. Now, if it was going to be in Moyock, I could slip across the border and check it out.

  2. Wish I could be there. I’ll be in North Carolina in mid-August. Perhaps they’ll be holding another!

  3. Rourke, is there a way you can post the three ways to start a fire without matches? That would be interesting


  4. Enjoyed the seminar! Speakers did a great job! Another seminar with less speakers would be great too so they could go into more depth.
