Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links as well as updates on the blog and preps.
First the updates:
Who won Prepper Pete Prepares? Stephanie won the book. She shared the following comment: We are just now starting our kids on official preparation stuff, but, having several kids in of family, they have always had chores and have been taught how to cook at appropriate ages. We are starting with different ways of making fire and moving on to finding water and making shelter. Older kids should heave extensive preparation/survival knowledge and little ones should be brought up with it as a lifestyle. We hope to do just that.
Lots of info in one place. I am happy to belong to the Prepared Bloggers group – you’ll find a wealth of information from this great group of bloggers. https://www.facebook.com/PreparedBloggers
