Notes from JWR:

My, oh my! SurvivalBlog just blew past five million unique visits. Thanks to everyone for making SurvivalBlog such an unparalleled success. (It is clearly now the Internet’s most popular family preparedness blog.) Please continue to spread the word to your relatives, friends, and co-workers. It is in your best interest to get them prepared, so that they won’t be dependent on your pile of logistics once everything hits the fan. Even just a one line mention in your-e-mail footer would be a huge help. Here is a suggestion: — Bookmark it. It may save your life!

Today we present another entry for Round 19 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. The contest prizes include:

First Prize: The writer of the best contributed article will be awarded two transferable Front Sight  “Gray” Four Day Training Course Certificates. This is an up to $4,000 value!
Second Prize: A three day course certificate from OnPoint Tactical. This certificate will be for the prize winner’s choice of three-day civilian courses.
Third Prize: A copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, from Arbogast Publishing

Round 19 ends on November 30th, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival will have an advantage in the judging.
