Note from JWR:

I’m interested in hearing from some more of our overseas readers. (There are lots of you, in more than 70 countries.) I’d really like to expand the Retreat Owners Profiles page, to reflect the wide range of approaches that are used in other regions to increase a family’s survivability. I’d particularly like to hear from anyone that lives in a country plagued by economic troubles and/or social upheaval. I’d also appreciate hearing from anyone living in a country with a severe climate–such as an arctic or desert regions. I’m sure that the readers of SurvivalBlog will benefit from reading about your lives. Thanks!
