Notes From JWR:

The high bid for The SurvivalBlog benefit auction for a copy “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course is now at $150. Please submit your bids via e-mail,

A reminder that we are seeking entries for Round 6 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. The writer of the best non-fiction article will win a valuable four day “gray” transferable Front Sight course certificate. (Worth up to $1,600.) Second prize is a copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, generously donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing. If you want a chance to win Round 6, start writing and e-mail us your article. Round 6 will end on September 30th. Remember that the articles on practical “how to” skills for survival (rather than motivational pieces) will have an advantage in the judging.
