Default A Magazine For Preppers!

So I was at the supermarket today and this caught my eye....a magazine for preppers! So far everything I've read in it has been very interesting. The layout is great, the articles are well written, and the photography is pretty nice. It's not loaded with tons of ads either. Its a magazine I could see myself subscribing to. Definitely worth checking out at least.

If you guys read those and don't want them I'll give you my address and maybe you could send me them? Some new reading material would be nice.

There use to be a mag back in the 90's till early 2000 that is not being published anymore forgot what it's called but I would assume it's similar to "Living Ready". The magazine basically stopped after the Y2K. But had a lot of good and interesting info. If you guys has Barnes and Noble in your area, The Backwoodsman, Backwoods Home, The New Pioneer, and Countryside are also good mags to read.

Thanks for that comical medical advice.... Once in a while too in the bargain book sections, they have books on survival.

Nice. I have a subscription to Backwoodsman which is awesome. Another brand new magazine that I just found is American Frontiersman. It is really good too.

I believe I stumbled into that mag a couple of weeks ago in Barnes and Noble. Correct me if I'm wrong that mag goes for around $10 for mag rack price right?

That sounds right. Seems like all magazines are pushing the $10 range these days.

I bought a magazine for the first time in years not long ago b/c it showcased a product I had been working on (not prepping related) and about choked when it rang up at $9.95. Just shocked me.

Something to be said for digital copies and subscriptions for cheap for sure.

American Survival Guide. Then it went online and became Modern Survival Guide. I think it's now defunct though.

American Survival Guide is back. I know because my mom and my wife both got me a copy last week.
