We have a winner! Today I am thrilled to let you know that “Jo” is the winner of a new WonderMill grain mill. She has been informed and will have her choice of the WonderMill electric or the manual Wonder Junior Deluxe. It is a tough choice.
Here is how Jo responded to the question “What pioneer skill do you feel will be the most valuable following a disaster, collapse or other “stuff” hits the fan scenario?”:
Self defense will be first and foremost. You can’t do any gardening, water gathering etc. if you are dead.
Being able to stay alive for the first month or so will determine whether or not you will survive the long haul. I think during the first weeks the weak and unprepared will die off leaving only the prepared, the strongest and the smartest left.
If you are not familiar with the WonderMill or with grinding wheat into flour, you can learn about it by visiting my review Grinding Wheat with the Incredible WonderMill. I have been grinding my own flour as a matter of course for over a month and even though I have about 100 pounds of store-bought flour in my food storage, I prefer home ground flour for its unique sweetness that is both difficult to describe and delicious.
The Final Word
I know that many of you are disappointed that you were not selected as the winner of the WonderMill. That said, I have a number of fabulous giveaways set up to run between now and the end of the year.
When I say fabulous, how does a Royal Berkey, a Kaito Voyager emergency radio, and an emergency food supply sound? That is only a sampling of what is coming up soon on Backdoor Survival. Stay tuned for more.
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!
