We attended our first Preparedness Expo on Sunday at the Spokane Convention Center. What an experience!
I was more than a little concerned about doing an Expo in downtown Spokane. By nature, survivalist types aren't particularly fond of big cities, freeways or underground parking. Last year the expo was held at the fairgrounds, and I must admit, it seems as though that was a better fit.
Leaving the "shouse" early, we arrived at the Convention Center at about 7:30 and began setting up our booth. We were very unsure of what to expect (having only done gun shows in the past), but we were thrilled with the booth layout. They were roomy and very well done. It took us all of about 45 minutes to set up so we had plenty of time to wander around and peruse the other booths.
