Default Preppers Swapmeet (Irwindale Jan 13th)

http://www.meetup.com/Outdoor-Self-R...ents/95692072/

Sunday, January 13, 2013 9:00 AM to 12:00 PM
Irwindale's Santa Fe Dam Recreational Facility
15501 Arrow Highway, Irwindale, CA

Any CalGunners going?

After years of accumulation, we all have gear we no longer use, or are considering replacing. Instead of using craigslist or ebay, Let's get all of us like-minded individuals together and bring down our unused/no longer used gear down and swap it out for gear we want/need... There are a great many deals to be had, by doing so. Some of my greatest finds have been through trade blankets.

RULES

Items must be Outdoor, preparedness, or survival related... such as:

* tents
* tactical
* back packs
* sleeping bags
* climbing, rappelling
* fishing
* dutch ovens
* Survival kits/components
* MREs/ emergency rations
* preparedness supplies
* navigation supplies
* books on relevant topics
* HAM radio equipment
* knives
* etc.

Trading is good, as is cash.

I'll be there.

I will be swapping things I know I don't need, for things I hope i never need.

But seriously, I'm going to check it out and then do some hiking, since I'll be out there anyway.

Anyone know a specific awesome trail?
I did that "Bridge to Nowhere" hike in Azusa recently, that was great,
anything else nearby?

Damnit, I want to go to one of these but I'm not driving all that way to do it.

Good luck everyone. Hope you get some cool stuff!

I have books I'm trying to get rid of, lanterns, some knives, 5.11 rush 24 backpack, med supplies, and whatever else I dig up between now and sunday

edit to add::: I'm also getting rid of a Kelly Kettle (Large)

Nobody has any comment on how this turned out?
If there is a future one scheduled, I will definitely go.

Yeah, maybe 5 people showed up, 3 looking to buy and 2 looking to barter....

The guy running it was very cool and intelligent, it just didn't have the huge turn out to make it a success.

Perhaps something in the L.A. area would be more relevant. I would definitely give it a second chance, seeing as I was unable to sell or barter anything to the other 4 people there. LOL!

But I did get a nice book for $3, and learned a couple things for free.
