Note from JWR:
I just noticed that we are about to surpass 1.75 million unique visits to SurvivalBlog. My sincere thanks to everyone for making the blog such a huge success. Please keep spreading the news. Special thanks to our readers down in Oz, where we’ve had huge readership growth in recent months. My only question is: what is that big dot on the map for SurvivalBlog readers out in the middle of the Outback? I can’t imagine that there are that many SurvivalBlog readers in the town Alice Springs, so there must be some very bored “knob turners” at Pine Gap.
