SurvivalBlog’s News From The American Redoub

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 the arrival of Avian Influenza.  (See the Montana and Wyoming sections.)


From Spectator World: Heading west to escape liberal tyranny: Remote work will geographically polarize the country even more. This refreshingly unbiased article begins:

“As our nation navigates a ‘return to normalcy’ in a post-Covid world, one return most workers won’t be making is to the office. And as an estimated 40.7 million American professionals plan to be working fully remotely within the next five years, expect the great political divide to widen as liberals and conservatives move farther apart, both ideologically and physically.

With working from home becoming the norm, “home” for many people is changing. ‘Anywhere from 14 to 23 million Americans are planning to move as a result of remote work,” an study taken at the height of the pandemic found. ‘[N]ear-term migration rates may be three to four times what they normally are.'”

It is noteworthy that this article quotes real estate agent Todd Savage — one of our loyal advertisers.
