Re: Personal experience in planning a prepper convention?

Here is a link to one. https://www.zombiehunters.org/?q=zombiecon :D Thank you Raptor. I am aware of ZS's annual zombiecon, but have never attended it either. For the purposes of my post, though, I was thinking more along the lines of an indoor exhibition center with vendors offering and demonstrat...

Personal experience in planning a prepper convention?

Background: This weekend I attended my first gun show with a friend. I was more interested in the preparedness aspect of what was offered and this has increased my interest in organizing a similar event with more of a preparedness focus. I have heard about "prepper conventions" but have not had an ...

Re: How much is you BOB worth ?

Bag: $29.99
Contents: roughly $200, possibly less.

This brings up a great topic, keeping track of not only your inventory and skills, but also the cost incurred. At one point I tried to keep track of the costs, but kind of abandoned the idea.

Re: Best Bets for Food: More Calories, Less Hassle

OK, I'll play. One of the things I like to make for backpacking is homemade larabars. For taste, we generally use 1 cup almonds, 1 cup dates, and 1/4 cup apricots, all food processored up and pressed into bars. If we substitute both fruit out for raisins for cost effectiveness, a batch with ingredi...

Re: $10 gift Ideas

Not sure if you are looking for a zombie theme. If not, Home Depot usually has a solid selection of less expensive multi-tools and mini-flashlights this time of year. The best thing to do, if possible, is to just go in person and take a walk around the floor displays.

They were close to the entrance of Home Depot and also at one point near some of the check outs. I did not notice any left when I was there today, but your results may vary.

I actually came across them in the store and they seemed to have at least a few display cases of them.

I have not yet dumped everything in my bag and thrown in the dry bag to use as a liner.
