SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoubt

This weekly column features news stories and event announcements from around the American Redoubt region. (Idaho, Montana, eastern Oregon, eastern Washington, and Wyoming.) Much of the region is also more commonly known as The Inland Northwest. We also mention companies of interest to preppers and survivalists that are located in the American Redoubt region. Today, we focus on Yellowstone’s busiest month ever. (See the Wyoming section.)


Totely Fire burning near Plummer burning 650 acres, 15% contained. [JWR’s Comment: This is the same fire that Patrice Lewis described in her blog. And, as I mentioned on Thursday, Patrice has established a GoFundMe campaign, on behalf of her former neighbors who lost their home to the flames: Help Dallas and Susie Rebuild Their Home. Please consider donating.]

July was Yellowstone National Park’s most-visited month on record. This aritcle begins:

“Yellowstone National Park is reporting its most-visited July on record and the first time visits have exceeded 1 million in a single month. A Yellowstone news release said July was also the most-visited month in the park’s history.

The park hosted 1,080,767 recreation visits in July 2021, a 13 percent increase from the 955,645 visits in July 2020 and a 15 percent increase over July 2019 (936,062 visits).

The release said Yellowstone has hosted 2,668,765 recreation visits so far in 2021, up 16 percent from 2019. The comparison is based on 2019 due to the impact of COVID-19 on 2020 park visits.”
