SurvivalBlog presents another edition of The Survivalist’s Odds ‘n Sods— a collection of news bits and pieces that are relevant to the modern survivalist and prepper from “HJL”. (This week with JWR filling in.)
Preppers In The Ozarks
Whilst doing some web wandering I stumbled into a piece that 417 magazine ran, back in March: Why 417-Land is Mecca for Doomsday Preppers. Here is a quote: “And what better place to prepare than the Ozarks? Strafford got 47 inches of rain last year; the mean temperature was a mild 59 degrees. The Springfield Plateau has a 200-foot-deep aquifer for when rainwater gets scarce. The region is largely insulated from natural disasters—save the odd tornado or benign rumbling from the Bootheel’s New Madrid Fault Line—and the low population density of like-minded folks means preppers and homesteaders get left alone. A Lebanon real estate agent tells me remote acreage is an increasingly hot commodity for city dwellers eager to go native. Conversations with locals and time spent on prepping forums reveal a religious cohort who believe the Ozarks are God’s country—sacred ground upon which one can wage a last stand against the sins of a rapidly globalizing world.”

A Modest Privacy Protection Proposal
Jameson Lopp recently posted this informative article: How to Reclaim Your Privacy in the Surveillance Age. His article begins: “It’s hard to retain much privacy in the information age — the Internet has a nearly perfect limitless memory and we’re placing a ton of sensitive data onto it. After being swatted in 2017, I set out on a mission to start my life over with a renewed focus on privacy.”
Wranglerstar Reviews: Strategic Relocation
Back in 2013 Cody (aka Wranglerstar) did a video review of Joel Skousen’s book Strategic Relocation. I loved it–aside for his mispronunciation of the word nuclear. (One of my pet peeves.)
Virginia: Homesteaders of America Conference
The 2018 Homesteaders of America conference is scheduled for October 12th and 13th, in Front Royal, Virginia. This is your chance to hear presentations by Joel Salatin and a host of other self-sufficiency experts.
Rural Prepper Videos
I noticed that Rural Prepper has recently expanded his library of videos, available free on YouTube. Take a look!

Please send your news tips to HJL. (Either via e-mail of via our Contact form.) These are often especially relevant, because they come from folks who watch news that is important to them. Due to their diligence and focus, we benefit from fresh “on target” news. We often “get the scoop” on news that is most likely ignored (or reported late) by mainstream American news outlets. Thanks!
