Notes from JWR:

Because of some power outages and power spikes at our ISP, we’ve been having some serious problems accessing the Internet for the past couple of days. So rather than keeping you waiting for your daily dose of SurvivalBlog, I am planning to post a couple of days worth of posts in advance, whenever our connection sporadically comes up. So don’t be alarmed if in the next few days you see a future date on any posts.

We have finished the judging… The winner of Round 14 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. is J. Britely, for his lengthy article Prepare or Die”. He gets the top prize–a four day “gray” transferable Front Sight course certificate. These certificates are worth up to $2,000! Our thanks to Front Sight’s director, Naish Piazza, for generously donating the course certificate. Check out the Front Sight web site and take advantage of their great training opportunities.

Second prize goes to K.L. In Alaska for his article “Sources for Free Survival and Preparedness Information on the Internet”. His prize is is a copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, generously donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing.

I’m also sending out two honorable mention prizes to Robert R. for his article “How to Win with Asymmetric Warfare”, and to Dim Tim for his article “Constructing an Improvised CB Radio Antenna Both of them will be sent autographed copies of my novel “Patriots: Surviving the Coming Collapse”.

Note to all the prize winners: Send me an e-mail to let me know your snail mail addresses, and your prizes will be mailed to you shortly. Thanks gents, and congratulations!
Today we start Round 15 of the contest. Send your non-fiction articles via e-mail for a chance to win some great prizes! The first prize will again be a four day “gray” transferable Front Sight course certificate!
