Reader T.L. asked where he can get Castile Soap via mail order. It is available from Survival Enterprises. They sell the same Dr. Bronner’s Brand soap that I’ve carried on my backpacking trips since the 1970s. (Castile soap is ideal for backpacking, because a little bottle goes a long way!) The microscopic type “ABC-1-2-3” labels make interesting reading. (Odd doctrine, but hey, the gent has the freedom to put whatever he wants on his bottles and packages.) BTW, I heard that Survival Enterprises also still have a good supply of a few remaining varieties canned long term storage foods.

Signs of the times: Gasoline Prices Soar on Refinery Trouble, and, Cost of Fuel, Corn Could Push Milk Prices Up 9% by Fall, and Gold, Silver Up As Oil Hits 6-Month High. Gee, it’s a good thing that Ben Bernanke is at the helm of the Fed, keeping inflation in check.

SurvivalBlog reader Murray mentioned that Kim du Toit has again issued an invitation for readers to pick what they’d take on a cross-country wilderness journey. Murray’s comments: “Always interesting …… what long gun, what handgun, what knives, what dog. Me? Marlin 1894C, Taurus 669 .357 revolver, Cold Steel SRK with kydex sheath, a Bark River Knife and Tool Mini-Skinner with kydex sheath, and an American Working Collie. And a wish for a whole lot of steel in the spine along with good boots and healthy feet.
