Over the past month I have been hinting and winking and teasing as I have alluded to the Backdoor Survival Winter Blast Giveaway. It’s not that I mean to keep you in suspense but rather that the number of review and giveaway items keeps growing and I wanted to make sure everything was perfect before making the big announcement.
You do not have to wait any longer! Today I am announcing the BDS Winter Blast Giveaway along with a list of the booty. Before getting into the details, take a look at some of the fabulous prepping goodies that lucky readers will have a chance of winning.

The Nitty Gritty
The question you may now be asking is this: How the heck do I win one of these fabulous prizes?
Between now and the end of the year, I will be featuring articles and reviews that tell you about these products along with instructions on how to win. Every single reader who enters will have an equal opportunity to win since the winner will be chosen at random.
Of course, as with all of the BDS giveaways, you will have to be on your toes since winning will require some thinking – meaning you will have to answer a question. You know how I love those giveaway questions! I may be throwing in some bonus items as well as some sneaky ways to get some extra entries so be sure to keep a look out for those too.
So what is first up? We are going to kick off next Thursday with the Royal Berkey. Come back and visit next Thursday when I will tell you about the Royal Berkey and some of the accessories that will help you get the most out of your water filtering experience.
The Final Word
The Winter Blast Giveaway is my way of thanking you – my readers and subscribers – this holiday season. You will not see this set up as one of those open raffles that anyone and everyone can enter. The only way to enter will be to visit Backdoor Survival and hopefully, to visit the generous sponsors and friends that have agreed to provide the prizes.
I know I say this a lot but it is said with sincerity so I will say it again. Thank you for being a fan of Backdoor Survival and equally important, thank you for your interest in preparedness. You are appreciated.
Enjoy your next adventure through common sense and thoughtful preparation!

Almost Free: At the time of this writing, this whistle is about $1 with free shipping. How bad can it be? I just ordered one: 3 in 1 Survival Whistle with Compass Thermometer.
Bargain Bin: For your discernment, here are some items that are popular with BDS readers including the items in the current Amazon Top 10.
Morakniv Craftline Q Allround Fixed Blade Utility Knife: Also known as the Mora 511, this is now my favorite knife. It is made of Swedish steel and is super sharp. I paid $12 for this knife last week and today it is $8.95 so I ordered another one. It was worth $12 and of course is a steal at $8.95!
LifeStraw Personal Water Filter: The LifeStraw is considered the most advanced, compact, ultra light personal water filter available. It contains no chemicals or iodinated resin, no batteries and no moving parts to break or wear out. It weighs only 2oz. making it perfect for the prepper. For more information, see my LifeStraw review.
Etón American Red Cross Self-Powered Radio with Flashlight, Solar Power and Cell Phone Charger: The description says it all. Everyone should have a self-powered emergency radio).
Potable Aqua Water Treatment Tablets: Potable Aqua Water Purification Tablets make questionable water bacteriologically suitable to drink. Easy to use and the water is ready to drink in 30 minutes. One 50 tablet bottle treats 25 quarts of water.
2 Pack Survival Kit Can Opener, Military, P-51 Model: These can openers makes great addition to any survival, fishing, hiking, or camping pack. They are lightweight and robust and they just work.
Coleman Rugged Battery Powered Lantern: This sturdy Coleman has a runtime of up to 28 hours on the low setting and 18 hours on the high setting but does require D cell batteries. Personally, I have both a battery operated and propane lantern. Of course by now you know that I like redundancy with my preps.
Blocklite Ultra Bright 9V LED Flashlight: I now own six of these little gems. There is a similar flashlight called the Pak-Lite (which is more expensive) but it does not have a high-low switch like this one. Less than $10. These little flashlights just go and go, plus, they make good use of those re-purposed 9V alkaline batteries that you have recharged with your Maximal Power FC999 Universal Battery Charger.
Although I have plenty of flashlights and batteries (you might even say I have a flashlight fetish) I also stay stocked up with a dozen of these Clear Mist 100 Hour Plus Emergency Candles as well. For the best deal, purchase a dozen at a time to get a discounted price.
Speaking of which, Emergency Essentials is having some great sales this month on many of your favorites.
