The 2018 Great American Outdoor Show is composed of big-name as well as lesser-known manufacturers in all facets of the outdoor industry, from firearms, ammo, hunting, guides, gear, accessories, and just about anything related to what we love to do outdoors. Whatever your niche, it seems that we all have one thing in common—the desire to be prepared. Those who practice “prepping” are the neighbors I want to know best. I’m not saying the this show left me with the desire to trade in my 5.11 ballcap for tin foil and a wooden spoon, but I find it refreshing that there are many other like-minded individuals who believe in self-reliance and sustainability, turning their ideas into businesses that make useful preparedness products.
