There’s TONS of good survivalist and prepper information on the web. So, in an attempt to corral this wealth of knowledge, I’m going to round up the best survival/prepper articles each week.
Submit your article: You can submit articles you’ve written or articles you’ve read by listing it in the comments below, or by tweeting it to me at @girlsprepguide. At the end of the week, I’ll promote the articles via Twitter and StumbleUpon.
It wasn’t planned, but the focus of this week’s roundup is on bugging in and emergency food storage.
