I got back from the Self Reliance Expo a little later than I had intended so I haven’t had a chance to review any of the gear that I picked up while I was there.
The Expo was a great experience ( much better than last years) and I had one of those fantastic “small world” experiences that are becoming exceedingly rare finds these days.
I spoke with a man at the expo who will soon be a guest contributor with us here and after about a half an hour I found out that I actually went to school with his wife.
Not only did we go to school together, but we lived down the street from each other and actually shared the same bus stop!
Aside from that, The Expo as a whole, while small, was a great experience.
Now, like I said, I got back later than intended and haven’t had a chance to review anything yet, but I did want to show you what to expect coming up in the next few weeks:
5 Minute Meals: Chef made long term foods, read in 5 minutes with everything you need inside the package
Deadwood Stove: Made by hand in the USA, I cant wait to test out this rocket stove
Magnesium fire starter: This is the first Magnesium and ferro rod combo I have seen that lets you use the handle as tinder in a pinch.
UV Paqlite: I have seen and used glow sticks before, but this one was so bright that I had to put it in a drawer just to get some sleep in my hotel room.
This is just a quick sampling of what I will be reviewing and I can’t wait to get started.
Quick question for you…
If I were to put together a Survival Life Expo, would you be interested in coming?
This is something that I have really been thinking about and I want to know if it would be worth the time to put one on.
Let me know in the comments below!
