Prepper News Watch for June 6, 2014

The PNW is back online!

Thank you for being patient. Unresolvable technical difficulties while traveling prevented me from making these posts. Since I do not give notice or talk about when I travel for security reasons, I was unable to give more details on the problems I was having. Hopefully, these issues will be rectified before my next travels (whenever that may be).

As I typically review about 1,000 articles per day, I didn’t want to post everything that I normally would post. Thus today, I’ve only posted what which I felt was the most important, in order to keep the number of posts down. Regular PNW posts should resume on Monday.

Prepper News Watch

Warranting Special Attention

  1. (Ed. Note: A good knife is a must have item. Make sure you know your knife is one you can rely on in a true SHTF scenario. I particularly like knifes that can easily double as a spear point, turning your hand weapon into a excellent defensive weapon and hunting tool. The Cold Steel Bushman in SK-5 Steel is a good example of a knife to consider.) Cold Steel Bushman Destruction Test |
  2. The Coming Crash in Ammunition Prices
  3. (Ed. Note: Make sure you understand this. OpSec is more important than ever, especially for those people that live around you.) Survival Imperative: “Blend In… People Will Hate You Even If You Help Them”
