Greetings Everyone!

I just returned from Dallas, TX where I attended the Ready, Set, Prep Summit with 20 other experts representing a host of prepping specialties. Over the course of two days (March 20, 21), a great deal of information and ideas were shared along with classes and lectures for authors, bloggers, and other experts in the Emergency Preparedness Industry…

Timothy Howard (Disaster Preparedness)

Maj. Steve Sheridan (how to kill debt & create wealth)
