Back in early May, as I was planning (as if you could not guess) a campaign for more reader interaction and newsletter subscribers, I put together a “June Summer Blast Giveaway”.
Thanks to my fabulous sponsors and friends in the survival and prepping industry, I came up with ten prizes to be awarded at random to participants in the contest.
Today I am thrilled to announce the winners! Congratulations to the following readers that were notified on Thursday night:
Kathy C (KS): Volcano II Collapsible Stove – provided by our sponsor, The Berkey Guy at Directive21
Susy B (IL): $75 Survival Kit – provided by our sponsor, Camping Survival
Sandy D (FL): Mini Seed Garden Kit – provided by Everlasting Seeds
OW (TX): Prep & Pantry for iPhone or iPad – provided by our sponsor Galaloo/Prep & Pantry
Marilyn J (AR): Rothco Medium Transport Pack – provided by Survival Gear Bags
RW (unknown): His and Hers Paracord Survival Bracelets – provided by Cobrabraid
Pinktlb (unknown): Doom and Bloom(tm) Survival Medicine Handbook – provided by the Doctor Bones and Nurse Amy’s Doom and Bloom Nation
Joe P (AK): One year subscription to The Beacon – provided by Survival Week
Kevin B (OR): One year subscription to Peoplenomics – provided by George Ure at Urban Survival
I want to thank everyone for their participation – you are all winners in my book. The new newsletter subscribers recently received their first News Flash and yet to do is a compilation of the list of favorite Backdoor Survival articles.
But the really big news is that the “Ask Gaye a Question” response was so awesome that with the help of my friend George Ure who is visiting for two weeks, I will be putting together a short little eBook, “Survival Woman Wants a Word With You”.
Another Hat Tip to the Contest Sponsors
Before closing, I want to give a huge hat tip to the contest sponsors who so generously donated the prizes. Please visit these companies and if you decide to buy something, mention that you heard about them on Backdoor Survival!
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
Bargain Bin: Last week I went to handgun school and while browsing around the retail store at the facility, I found a unique type of what I will call a “pepper gun”. For times when deadly force is not required and not warranted, this is the way to go. Amazon currently is selling this bad boy for abut $5 less than the gun store – a good deal since shipping is free.Kimber Pepperblaster 2: Unlike typical pepper spray, PepperBlaster II isn’t aerosolized. Rather, each unit contains two cylinders with powerful concentrations of near-pharmaceutical grade oleoresin capsicum (OC). Each cylinder is driven by a pyrotechnic charge and a piston, and the solution travels at 90mph, giving it enough energy to wrap around glasses or a face mask. The range is 13 feet.
This month Emergency Essentials is featuring a great deal on their freeze dried fruit combo.
Now I eat a lot of fruit (usually three whole fruits a night as a bedtime snack) and in a SHTF situation, fruits will be something I really miss. When I saw the fruit combo on sale at Emergency Essentials, I jumped on it. Combined with some home-made yogurt – well, the thought sounds simply divine!
The selection includes Apple Dices, Bananas, Peaches, Pineapple Dices, Blueberries and Strawberries.
The fruit combo is now 24% off for $109.99 instead of the normal price of $144.25. Click here for all of the Emergency Essentials Monthly Specials.
