On June 8-10, a group of about 50 preppers from all over North Carolina came together for the 3rd annual NC Preppers camp-out near Wilkesboro.
We had a great time seeing some old friends and making some new friends. I am always impressed with the level of knowledge and skill represented among this group. We had presentations and demonstrations on basic prepping, EMP protection for electronics, self-defense without a weapon, using a solar oven, moving debris to rescue victims, plumbing repairs, buying and storing batteries, diagnosing the severity of a medical problem, killing and butchering rabbits, fishing, radio communications, etc. We also had some bartering and selling, drawings for several door prizes, Friday and Saturday night pot lucks featuring rabbit stew and donated steaks.
We sat around the fire late into the night talking and sharing. The group included several children who learned to make a useable bow from PVC pipe, paracord bracelets, fire-starting, fishing, and marshmallow roasting.
There were people of all ages, backgrounds, and interests. I think everyone learned something new.
