Prepper News Watch for July 25, 2014

Prepper News Watch

Note from editor: I’m trying to pare down the number of articles I link to on the PNW, as I know your time is limited. My goal is to focus on those news and information articles that have value, either helping you be better prepared or better informed. From the feedback I’ve received so far, many people only look at the links in the “Prepping” category (the first category below), however, there are some important links in the other categories.

Send me an email, at, and tell me how you use the PNW. I’m very interested in knowing where the value for you is, what is useful to you, and what you aren’t interested in.
