Self Reliance Expo in Denver

This weekend the Self Reliance Expo is coming to Denver. Adult tickets are $9 ($7 if you're a senior or you preorder online). Kids 12 and under are free. It will be held at the National Western Stockshow Complex on September 16th and 17th. It's open from 10-8 on Friday and 9-6 on Saturday.

Dave Canterbury from the Discovery Channel's "Dual Survival" series will be the keynote presenter. Jack Spirko, the host of "The Survival Podcast" will be speaking as well. There will also be several workshops going on throughout the weekend. You can read all about those on the website. Of course, there will be several exhibitors offering everything from firearms to kitchen appliances. If it relates to preparedness you should be able to find someone who's selling what you're looking for. There's also a casting call going on for the National Geographic channel's upcoming prepper reality show. I have no idea what the details are behind that but I'm sure they'll fill you in if you're interested.

I plan on being there Saturday morning to check it out. I'm definitely looking forward to it. It's good to see that there's enough interest in preparedness to warrant a major expo. There's another one coming up in Salt Lake City October 7 & 8 if you can't make it to this one. I'll be posting up an after action review sometime next week so keep an eye out for it.
