Doomsday Preppers: Not!

Today we attended the Mid-Atlantic Emergency Preparedness & Survival Expo in Myersville Maryland. We met many wonderful people who believe that self-sufficiency is one of the most important priority someone should cultivate in their life.

We spoke to a husband and wife team who sells “Thrive” long term storage food and provides Permaculture consulting services and will be interviewing them in a later episode of StoneHouse Homestead.

A woman owned and operated company called “Runlites” was selling running gloves that have built in LED lights that would come in extremely handy if you were facing a lights out situation. Melissa will also be interviewing the owner and getting her story on how she started her business and how she is incorporating her family into her venture.

Another interesting vendor that we visited is called “Container Homes of Maryland’. One of society’s greatest challenges is to provide affordable and sustainable housing. This innovative company takes a shipping container and transforms it into a home or cabin.

We were very excited that there were hundreds of other likeminded people attending and networking with each other. We would highly recommend that you check it out at next years Mid-Atlantic Emergency Preparedness & Survival Expo.

We will be uploading our first video to our YouTube Channel in a few days, check back here for more information.
