This worked out great last year - had a fantastic turnout turnout so I'm just going to largely copy it in from a couple posts.

First, the show itself.

There's a 25% off coupon showing now. I'm not sure, but I have a hunch that may be an early bird bonus, so you might want to go ahead and grab it - it will be sent to your email where you can archive it.

Come out and join us on Saturday, August 27th at 1:00 PM for a Meet and Greet and Lunch to coincide with the North Atlanta Survival Expo in Lawrenceville, GA at the Gwinnett County Fairgrounds.

Time: 1:00 PM
That should give you plenty of time to hit the show either in the morning or the afternoon as it runs from 9-6. Also, they hand stamp, so you could go, take a lunch break, and go back

Location: Green Tomato Home Cooking Buffet
256 Gwinnett Dr
Lawrenceville, GA 30046
(Almost at the intersection of Hwy 124 & Gwinnett Drive)

(770) 338-7577

It's 2.7 miles from the fairgrounds. Click here for Google Map directions from the show to the restaurant

All are welcome! Old-timers, visitors, interested parties. There won't be an agenda - just lunch with good friends and new friends and a good time to be had by all.

If you're driving in a ways and not familiar with the area, there is just about "one of everything" on the main drag out by the fairgrounds including an Academy Sports and a pretty decent Army/Navy store if you want to round out a full prepping day.

Looking forward to seeing y'all there!

Update: Door Prizes!

These are all courtesy of TruPrep. Thank you so much to prepperjoe and the gang at TruPrep.

I'm not sure if they'll have a booth there, but stop by and show some love if they do. (Hint hint - y'all gonna be there? Any specials to look out for?)

I forgot this was happening this weekend, and made plans to go to my sister's. So unfortunately I won't be able to make the meeting/show. That's really disappointing, as I've been looking forward to it! On the bright side though, we'll be coming home with loads of locally raised beef, pork, chicken, possibly venison, and fresh eggs; so it's not all bad. I'm just sad to be missing the meetup though, especially since it's been awhile since we've had one. I hope everyone has a great time though! :)

Not going to be able to make it either as it happens. Bummed about it too. You all have fun.

I'm planning on it - assuming the swelling on the right side of my face goes down enough to where y'all will even recognize me, thank you Mr. Hornet.

I'm looking forward to the show and looking forward to seeing everyone who can make lunch.

Had a great time last year.

Anyone shopping for anything in particular? Anyonne have any favorites from last year?

Trying to remember if there were any food bucket deals last year. I don't remember specifically. My favorite thing from last year was the Minuteman Stove - a rocket stove built in to an ammo can. I also got some flares, and some space blankets from Dr. Bones and Amy, who I enjoyed meeting. Also got my favorite new little LED lantern I reviewed back when the poser went out.

I am planning on being there, God willing.  If anyone wants Yarrow, I found another patch and can share.  Full sun, hillside with good drainage is best.  Grows fine in GA clay.  You might want to put in container or at least watch the spread.  It is prolific.

Just post on this thread by Friday at 7 pm  that you want some yarrow & I will bring to lunch and I plan on being at the show in the morning session on Saturday.
