Notes from JWR:

If you value what you read in SurvivalBlog, then please become a 10 Cent Challenge subscriber. I am confident that SurvivalBlog has kept you from making some costly mistakes in your preparations. I am also confident that SurvivalBlog has pointed you toward some investments that have been profitable for you. (When I started the blog in September of 2005, silver was $6.90 per ounce, gold was $445 per ounce, wheat was $3.30 per bushel, and military surplus .308 ball ammo was just $220 per thousand cartridges!)

Less than 2% of readers subscribe, so you can count yourself amongst those few that contribute 10 cents a day. Subscriptions are entirely voluntary, but gratefully accepted.

Today we present another article for Round 15 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 $2,000!) Second prize is a copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, generously donated by Jake Stafford of Arbogast Publishing. Round 15 ends on March 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entries. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging.
