Before we start today, I would like to send a big thank you to Tomthetinker for his donation – when I checked my paypal account, I was shocked at the amount he had sent. His was the largest single donation, I’ve ever received in support of the blog. Thank you, so very much, you are greatly appreciated. The money will be put to good use.
I would also like to thank everyone for their suggestions after posting about my bout with bloggers block, in two days, I received over 300 emails with suggestions and ideas for future blog posts. I now have a long list of stuff to write about over the next several months – thank you all. With over 1,400 posts logged, I suppose a lack of ideas at some point was unavoidable.
We have two new advertisers Watertanks dot Com and Preparewise dot Com – go over and take a look at what they have to offer and don’t forget to mention The Survivalist Blog when you place an order. On the same note, I’d like to let other potential advertisers know that we are out of space and will not be accepting anymore advertisements untill more space becomes available.
The ads pay for this blog and provide a service for readers when looking for survival supplies, but I don’t want the ads here to overpower the content or distract readers in any way, so there has to be a cut off point. Of course, we could be like that other survival blog with 50 banner ads in the sidebar LOL.
Okay, lets see what did I do to prep this week…
Finished reading “Lights Out” by David Crawford – Lights Out is a great book and I suggest everyone who likes fiction read it. No, I’m not going to give away the storyline here because I don’t want to spoil the book for those who haven’t read it yet, but I don’t think you will be disappointed.
Seasoned all my cast iron cookware, added more turmeric powder to the spice rack – turmeric has been used for over 2,500 years in India and boasts numberous health benefits including the prevention of certain cancers and inflammation. You can buy turmeric in supplement form but I prefer to add the powder to my food as I’m preparing it.
Been looking at a used Ruger Mini-14 GB I don’t need it, but the price is low enough that I could resell it for a profit, if I decided not to keep it. The Mini-14 is a good little carbine it’s stronger and can take more abuse than the AR-15 but it isn’t as accurate.
Built another chicken-wire fish trap (another idea for a future blog post) these traps are great for putting meat on the table and are easy to hide from anyone passing by including the Game Warden LOL.
Last weeks “What did you do to prep this week” received over 300 comments as far as I can remember this is the most comments we’ve had on any single post to date – lets see if we can break that record again this week.
