Survival: Chickens, Gardens, and Teas

"My consulting clients often ask me for advice on their preparedness purchasing programs. Some of the items that I've see them purchase in the name of "preparedness" make me wonder. For example, a family that recently relocated from Michigan to Idaho's Clearwater River Valley purchased matching snowmobiles for every member of the family. But they now live in a climate where in some years they only have snow that "sticks" for two or three weeks. In most years they will have to put their snow machines on trailers to get up to the high country to use them much."

"The bidding is still at $500 in the SurvivalBlog benefit auction, for a scarce pre-1899 antique Finnish M39 Mosin Nagant rifle from my personal collection. This rifle was rebarreled by Valmet during WWII, and is in excellent condition. It comes with a replica bayonet, original sling, and original muzzle cap. Since the receiver for this rifle was made in 1898, it can be mailed directly to the winning bidder's doorstep, with no FFL paperwork! The auction ends on October 15th. Just e-mail us your bid."
