SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

Here is SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt. This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. We also mention companies of interest to preppers that are located in the region. The emphasis this week is on the seventh anniversary of the founding of Radio Free Redoubt.


Region-Wide (Radio Free Redoubt):

We’ll start with a recommendation for an inspiring monologue from John Jacob Schmidt: Radio Free Redoubt 7 Year Anniversary Episode (#18-20). Congratulations to John Jacob Schmidt!  His yeoman service as a broadcaster has helped catapult the American Redoubt Movement onto the national stage. He has also been an instrumental and guiding force in the Liberty State movement. May God bless his ventures.

I found a fascinating video of a sea-going power boat tour of the Columbia and Snake rivers. They motored all the way up to Lewiston, Idaho: Venture to Idaho. (The Redoubt region portion begins around the 13 minute mark.) They took a 57-mile side trip up Hell’s Canyon, via jet boat. (That begins at the 30:20 mark.)
