Notes from JWR:

I was overwhelmed by more than 80 responses to my recent Seeking Reader Input for “Patriots” Sequels post. I now have more than enough volunteers! (The only subject area where I still need some more input is Belize.) My apologies if I don’t send all of you immediate replies. In many cases, I won’t be replying with follow-up questions until I’m actively engaged in writing those particular parts of the manuscript. My sincere thanks for your input, folks!

Today we present the final entry for Round 22 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest. (BTW, I have some others that recently arrived now in the queue, but those will be considered in Round 23.)

First Prize: A.) A course certificate from OnPoint Tactical. This certificate will be for the prize winner’s choice of three-day civilian courses. (Excluding those restricted for military or government teams.) Three day OnPoint courses normally cost between $500 and $600, and B.) Two cases of Mountain House freeze-dried foods, courtesy of Ready Made Resources.

Second Prize: A “grab bag” of preparedness gear and books from Jim’s Amazing Secret Bunker of Redundant Redundancy (JASBORR) with a retail value of $350.

Third Prize: A copy of my “Rawles Gets You Ready” preparedness course, from Arbogast Publishing.

Round 22 ends on May 31st, so get busy writing and e-mail us your entry. Remember that articles that relate practical “how to” skills for survival have an advantage in the judging.
