Prepper News Watch for December 13, 2013

Prepper News Watch

I try to only grab headlines and articles that I think would benefit you, the prepper. Sometimes it’s news, sometimes it’s a how-to article or gear idea and sometimes it’s just something interesting (based on my assumption that preppers have a wide and diverse interest in many topics). Some days, there just isn’t all that much which is interesting, and then there are days like today, where there is a lot of information out there. Luckily, it’s Friday and you can take the weekend to go over these articles. Update: I just realized that I never posted a PNW for yesterday, so there are two day’s worth here. Oh well.
