I hope you had a Merry Christmas and got all of the Prepper gifts that you asked for! My family and I were able to attend a nice Christmas Eve service and then woke up early to go after the gifts under the tree. I was fortunate enough to get a nice set of binoculars, a TLR-1S weapon light and a Gerber Gator Machete. Admittedly I am a gun guy, but there is something simply mesmerizing about the machete. I feel like I need to head out into the woods for a bit, just to hack down a few things.
Prepper Deals out on the Internet:
A 7 day (Wise) Ultimate Emergency Meal Kit, over at Natchezss.com. I’ve heard decent things about Wise products and have ordered from Natchezss before with great results.
I’ve written about hygiene kits, in particular the need for extra feminine hygiene kits…check this one out over at The Prep Room.

PJ: It really isn’t a matter of if, but when. There are a myriad of factors which are contributing to our decline, none of them are being addressed in any substantial way. I’ve said it before and I’ll continue to say it: something that cannot go on forever, will stop.
