Proposals for new educational events, camps, expos, and fund raising will be introduced.  New officers will be elected and reports about Live Free’s ongoing publications and projects will be presented.  Get involved!  Live Free USA’s programs to support and promote family self-reliance, survival education, and emergency preparedness are needed now more than ever.


SATURDAY JUNE 15th , 9:00 AM till 6:00 PM


This is the original field survival training event since 1968!

Cabins* and camp-sites are available through the Indiana Department of Natural Resources website. Participants are encouraged to arrive Friday afternoon and depart Sunday morning. Park entry fee required. The fee for participation, details on registration, and the classes to be included will be available soon.

* There are only 11 cabins available at $40.00 per-night, they are very nice and accommodate 4 people so a family or group can reserve one.  Live Free USA does not control these cabins so they will be gone very early in the year if not reserved early.

Wildfire Survival

Wildfires of various types are becoming more common.  I worked with one of our members living in the northwest who has actually experienced these fires and was able to provide experience and references. Finally, I did research and then wrote the article with the survivalist approach. If you live in any of the wildfire, forest-fire, brush-fire prone regions, please share this information with your neighbors.

Executive Order 13603 and What it Means for Preppers…

Executive Order 13603 and What it Means for Preppers…

Police stateI’ve been going over “Executive Order 13603” today and thought that you might be interested in taking a look at the following provisions that I pulled directly from the document and pasted below.

What this all boils down to is that the President, can declare a national emergency and then take all resources, even privately owned resources, resources, like your preps and any other private property that they want…

Over the years I’ve read many articles and books which suggest that the biggest threat to your survival post collapse are refugees fleeing the cities or your neighbors coming to take your preps, and while they are a legitimate concern, as you can see by reading the excepts taken directly from executive order 13603, they probably won’t be the biggest threat to your survival.

After the president declares a disaster and enacts executive order 13603, the federal government will first concentrate on taking large commercial farms, fuel produces, fertilizer plants etc, in maybe your local state and county governments who are the first ones coming after the local resources of individuals and families within their state, county and city jurisdictions.

This is why it’s a good idea to have your preps well hidden and backup preps stored away from your home and retreat…
