The Des Moines and Quad Cities meet up groups will be holding there first meet ups: Quad Cities on June 30 and Des Moines on July 8. Meet ups are the very best way for preppers to gather information, share that information, and form cohesive groups that can support each other. There are other prepper groups in Iowa that have been around for a bit and they are doing a great job as well. I commend you all for your efforts. Be Prepared!
