Amping in August

The Eastern NC Prepper group is a 70+ member group for preppers and those that wish to learn more about the lifestyle that live in eastern NC (however the group is open to anyone).

The main objectives of this group is:
- Advancment of the art and skill of prepping
- Networking with fellow preppers
- Learning about the prepper community as a whole.

The group has only 3 rules, no religion, politics or business hocking in general group. Meaning in private if you want to discuss that with others that is fine.

I am Orion Darkwood and would like to personally invite you to Amping Up in August.

Please RSVP by Sat Aug 4th

Date August 11th

Time 1pm - 5pm (park closes at 8pm)

Location William B. Umstead Park Shelter #2 (Crabtree Creek) -

Directions - Go into the park from the Glennwood Ave side (if you coming up Glennwood from 440 I recommend going up to the stop light and turning around since getting across can be a pain). Once in the park kept straight until the road circles back (35.871699,-78.761051 for you GPS junkies), the Big Lake will be on your right. You see a side pointing to a concerte walkway that winds around some picnic tables. Shelter #2 will be visible (its the second building you will see on your right) if you get the bathroom you have gone too far.
