Here are JWR‘s Recommendations of the Week for various media and tools of interest to SurvivalBlog readers. This week the focus is on stainless steel wool. (See the Gear section, near the end of this column.)
The Red Cliffs of Zerhoun by Matt Bracken. (Recommended by long-time blog reader P.T..) Matt Bracken is a former U.S. Navy SEAL. His thought-provoking novels always include a lot of practical and tactical goodness woven into the storylines. (Matt’s better-known Enemies Foreign and Domestic” novel series is widely read, for good reason!)
Movies and Television:
Voddie Baucham: The World, the Flesh, and the Devil
Family Life Today: On Mission in Zambia (Voddie Baucham)
Handpicked Nation: Preserving: Past & Present
Fuller Stainless Steel Wool. This is the genuine article (the type used here at the Rawles Ranch) and far superior in longevity to the competitors. Because it is stainless steel, it won’t induce rust. Once a pad is finally deemed “worn out” in the kitchen, save the wool scraps for utility purposes in your shop and for tasks like scrubbing livestock water tanks.
Lifetime 6405 Outdoor Storage Shed with Window, Skylights, and Shelving, 8 by 10 Feet. A friend owns one of these and he told me that it has proven surprisingly sturdy and durable. He lives in snow country and he said that it survived a winter with six feet of snow.
Longtime reader Rob L. recommended this versatile small flashlight as a replacement for the sadly discontinued Gerber Omnivore: The Streamlight Protac 1L-1AA. Rob says: “Something just as good or better than the Omnivore has come along. These can run on one CR-123A Lithium or one AA alkaline. They put out 350 lumens with the CR-123, or 150 lumens with a AA battery. They have a programmable switch. This is my favorite feature. I just want an on/off, not a 3-4 click sequence to turn the darn thing off !) A black nylon belt pouch and batteries are included.”
