Lon, hope you have great success at getting our West River Preppers together for some skill sharing. Last yr I hosted the first S.Dakota Sustainability Fair in September, to help bring Homesteaders & others together with interest in Self Reliance. I think our conservative S. Dakota nature makes many want to keep from labeling themselves as "preppers" but they will say they are Homesteaders or "self sufficiency" people. Whatever the label I think we all share some common ground. Its that common ground that will help us get more people prepared for any event that may happen.
I think Sandy helps us greatly in getting the message out for the importance of preparedness. It doesn't sound "wacky" at the moment to prepare one's family for disasters. So lets USE this for our PR efforts! Just a suggestion from an East River grandma
