Alan T. Hagan has written for Backwoods Home  magazine and a couple of other periodicals, and has written a book. He is a genuinely a nice guy who loves to spread the word about preparedness. He’s very approachable and may make a good candidate for your Profiles  page.
Just passing it on. Thanks for the mention,

JWR’s Reply: Mr. Hagan has a great reputation in preparedness circles, and deservedly so. His Q&A on food storage  is a veritable standard reference.
