The 2012 Blade Show starts tomorrow in Atlanta, Georgia at the Cobb Galleria Centre, running through Sunday. Usually a wilderness/knife gear show, this year the folks behind the scenes are reaching out to the preparedness community by adding various new speakers, including yours truly, to talk about what happens if things go South (and I don’t mean Macon or Tallahassee!). We’ve been on the road non-stop, but we felt that we could reach a lot of people with outdoor skills that could really make a difference in times of trouble if they join the preparedness movement.
Besides a ton of awesome and entertaining knife talks and demonstrations, the following schedule has been posted:
