About the event

This is the official open invitation for this year's Spring Campout and Networking Event, being held at Slough Creek, G2 Group Campsite at Lake Perry, Perry, Kansas. What can I say...? What an Interesting time to be alive... I'm not sure there has ever been a greater time in Human History to, as we say 'round here, "Be Prepared, Stay Prepared". Here is another great opportunity for you to Test your Gear, Collaborate with Friends and Neighbors as well as Educate Yourself or Loved ones and most importantly... Check Yourself.

It's quite simple Friends, Be Prepared, Stay Prepared. Fellowship, Network and Barter with other Prepared folks.
