Welcome Preppers and Survivalists,
The first blog, I'm going to write about is Safely Gathered In. I have linked to this blog many times in the past; there is a reason for linking to them so much. Hannah, Abbie, and their guest columnists (Brittany, Aleasha, Sarah, and Tiffany) have many great posts on food storage and using food storage. Plus, they have pictures for most, if not all, of their recipes.
I forgot to mention; their recipes use food storage items!!!
Now, for the real reason I am mentioning them today. They have been writing a series of articles on how they and others store their food storage. It is an informative series of articles with pictures on using avaliable space to store food.
The link below is to the last article in the series with links to the other articles at the beginning.

A couple of weeks ago, at least it seems that way, I linked to an article by Ryan over at Total Survivalist Libertarian Rantfest about boredom. Well Angela, from Food Storage and Survival, wrote an article about emergency boredom busters for children.
It is a great idea. I especially love the idea about taping a P-38 can opener to the bottom of the can.
If you don't have access to a can sealer, you could just use the plastic lids from coffee cans and a little bit of tape to securely seal the can.
Plus, make sure you read the comments at the end of the posts.

The last links, for today, are two blogs shared by Karin. The first blog is Karin's titled "The Bushcraft Wife Project." The blog has many neat posts. I particularly like the posts on items that have multiple uses such as dental floss, ziplock baggies, bandanas, and ...
The second link, provided by Karin, is another blog on bushcraft. The blog is titled "Bushcraft Plus" by Caleb. Caleb has many good posts with embedded video on his blog.
Thanks Karin for sharing with us.
When you visit Karin's and Caleb's blog, tell 'em thanks for their hard work.

I have been writing about patrolling these last few weeks. Even though, I believe, it is an important skill, there are many other skills that I believe preppers and survivalists should know. Many of these skills can be learned through learning and practicing bushcraft.
Don't just focus on the current/future financial crisis because prepping and survivalism is about having a better life even if nothing happens. At least according to Jack Spirko, over at The Survival Podcast.
