The Volusia County Prepping Group has been meeting monthly since 2011. We're a preparedness education group - NOT a "survival group" or militia or anything like that. If you're interested in learning and meeting like-minded folks, please check out our web site and join us at a meeting. There are no dues - we pass the jar for donations to rent the building for our meetings. If nothing else, you'll probably find some good information on our web site.

Glad you found it interesting. There isn't much I can add beyond what is on the web site though. Stop by for the next meeting if you're able. I see your profile shows an interest in ham radio - there are several hams in the group, including myself (one of the few remaining Advanced Class license holders).

Just letting folks know about our upcoming July meeting. It should be a great one. Guest speaker is a missionary to Sierra Leone, West Africa (he returns in October). He will be talking about what really happened during the Ebola crisis there (he was there in the jungle during the Ebola crisis). He will also be talking about life without electricity or any of the modern conveniences that we all seem to take for granted.

He is using his military retirement to fund the mission work (I am VP of the non-profit corporation that handles logistics for the project).

coastiekyle, it was a real pleasure meeting you and your wife. Looking forward to seeing you at future meetings.

Our July 11 meeting features a special guest speaker - "A. American", author of the 10-volume survival novel series.

We had 76 at our prep group meeting tonight including folks from Volusia, Orange, Seminole, and Brevard Counties. One group came from Titusville where they meet three times a month. No doubt about it - people are waking up to what is coming. Only a few months ago, 30 would have been a good turnout.

Are you getting out there, making contacts, learning and teaching others? Time is growing short. Very short.
