The latest edition of The Preparedness Review is hot off the press and once again, it is a free download!

The Fall 2013 issue of TPR is over 90 pages long and contains 17 must-read articles on preparedness.  There is truly something for everyone.  Not only that, I am thrilled that my article, “The Preppers Guide to Better, Safer, Cheaper Cleaning” is the lead article. This is a brand new article with new material written especially for The Preparedness Review.

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.

The matches burn for around 15 seconds and are windproof, waterproof, and even continue burning underwater. An integrated striker is attached on the side of the match kit, and can be replaced when worn out.

It is made from 550-pound test nylon and features a seven-strand core for maximum strength. Also, it is manufactured in the United States.  Note that some colors may be more expensive than others.  Need ideas?  See 44 Really Cool Uses of Paracord for Survival.

This month, the Tote-able Toilet with 2 Enzyme PacketsThe Perfect Homemade Biscuit Mix from Food Storage   Backdoor Survival is on sale for $14.95.  I priced purchasing the bucket and toilet seat lid separately and found that it was more economical to pick up this kit.  I am planning to fill the bucket with other sanitation supplies plus, of course, plenty of TP.

You might also like Mobile Washer. This is hand operated washing machine. Like a plunger, it uses a technique of pushing and pulling the water through clothes to clean them well without wearing them out. It uses a minimum of water and less soap due to the agitation motion. Use in a bucket (5-gallon suggested), sink or tub.

  1. I would love a copy of the Preparedness Review but the download software doesn’t work, be ides I don’t want another app in my library. I am not a member of Facebook because it will eventually get hacked and I don’t need anybody snooping.
    Can you send me a PDF version that I can add to my kindle or place in I-books

  2. I would like a copy of your new guide but I do not use the CLOUD and do not use Facebook so how do I get a copy without opening myself to government / big business snooping.

    I like your site and read every issue but please do not make me use these invasive tools I am not overly paranoid just careful, I know what they have access to and it starts with your electronic footprint.

    • John,

      What about my personal Dropbox? Here is a link: // If that does not work or you are not comfortable, let me know and we can go to plan B.
