Greetings! I wanted to share with you about The Survival Summit that starts January 20, 2014 and runs 6 days! It’s free. It starts next week. It’s online! Here is the speaker line-up: http://thesurvivalsummit.com/schedule/
There is a wide range of topics, especially about homesteading and self-reliance — foraging, making biodiesel, first aid, trapping, food preservation WITHOUT electricity, growing food without irrigation (by Paul Wheaton, a favorite speaker), plus all of the zombie apocalypse survival stuff too. 🙂
I’m very excited to hear some of these speakers. And I’m very excited about being able to stay at home and hear them. How very energy-efficient! 🙂
I traveled 5 hours by car 2 1/2 years ago to go to a Mother Earth News Fair. While it was neat to be there in person to see presenters, I wouldn’t drive that far again for it. There was no hands-on learning; it was just watching presenters. I was glad that I went once but, to me, I can watch a video presentation at home and save a lot of money and energy.
