Happy New YearWhere has the time gone?

2012 is here and with it comes a renewal of all that is important to us:  family, friends, and a wholesome and sustainable lifestyle.  I would like to personally wish you the very best for this coming year and to thank you for taking time out of your busy day to visit Backdoor Survival.

I am grateful for your loyalty and your honest and sincere emails and comments.  Let us go forward in 2012 with renewed spirit and optimism for making the best of challenges as we face in the year ahead.

And, for a special treat, jump on over to Strategic Living where George and I have come up with Nine Resolutions That Matter in 2012.

Happy New Year!

Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
