Notes From JWR:

The bidding is now up to $135 in the SurvivalBlog benefit auction for a copy “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course. The course was kindly donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing. Please submit your bids via e-mail. This auction ends on September 15th.

The following article was written by the winner of Round 5 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. It is a fine article that deserves special recognition. But unfortunately since Peter just recently won the writing contest, he isn’t eligible to win again for 10 more months. 🙁 So to reward him, I just sent him a complimentary box of assorted books from my mail order catalog.
