Welcome to another Monday Musings, where we share interesting links as well as updates on the blog and preps.
First the blog updates…
Sponsor news SurvivalCaveFood.com, announced their Black Friday Sale which has started and will last until 12/1/2013. Black Friday sale – FREE SHIPPING, with many preparedness gifts Starting at $10.
Great deals at Amazon. Please consider using Apartment Prepper’s Amazon link for your prepping and Christmas shopping purchases. Our blog hosting expenses has grown substantially, and I am doing everything I can to keep this blog free to all readers. We chose not to have a Donate button; blog expenses are covered by sponsor banner ads and affiliates such as Amazon. This costs you nothing out of pocket but they mean a lot, and I greatly appreciate your support!
Personal GPS update A while back I tested the Bushnell Backtrack D-Tour and reader Bob S inquired whether the stored locations will reset if you replace the batteries. I finally got a chance to try it out: removed the batteries and replaced them, rode out to a new location and checked to see if it would point back to a previously stored location. The good news is, it actually did not lose the saved areas. When I turned it back on, and set it to “Home” (not my real home, just the place I had set it to) it as soon as it found the satellite it pointed to the correct direction. I’ve updated the article as well.
Thanks Bob S for bringing this up. I appreciate everyone’s questions and comments!
New giveaway tomorrow We’re having our final giveaway of the month tomorrow, so please check back and submit your entry!
Now for the links…
Author R.P. Ruggiero’s latest book is out: Brushfire Plague: Reckoning, the follow up to his successful debut novel, Brushfire Plague. Recently published by Prepper Press, this book begins as the Brushfire Plague that has crippled the globe slowly loses its lethality, only to be replaced by the harsh reality of its origin and what this will mean for civilization. I reviewed Brushfire Plague when it first came out and look forward to reading the second book.
For a limited time, readers can pick up at a deep discount the original Brushfire Plague Kindle version. This won’t last, so take advantage of the sale while you can.
Thugs behaving (even more) badly This just seems so senseless – teens randomly striking strangers for no reason at all, other than to knock them down with one punch.

A gourmet meal from a coffee maker?!? I’ve heard of vacationers bringing slow cookers to the hotel for hot meals but cooking in a coffee maker is new to me. Might be advisable to try it at home first, before attempting it in a hotel. If you’ve tried it, please let us know how it turns out!
