Preparedness Notes for Tuesday — December 14, 2021

Today
is
the
birthday
of
Air
Force
General
James
H.
“Jimmy”
Doolittle,
who
died
September
27,
1993.

December
14th
is
also
the
birthday
of
the
late
John
Warren
Wadleigh
(born
1927,
died
September
24,
2013).
Wadleigh
was
better
known
to
many
SurvivalBlog
readers
by
his
pen
name

Oliver
Lange.
He
was
the
author
of
the
best-selling
resistance
warfare
novel

Vandenberg
.


The
last
day! 

By
popular
demand,
I
extended
the
month-long
Patton’s
Birthday
Sale
at

Elk
Creek
Company
.
It
will
now
end
tonight.
Get
your
order
in
by
1700
hrs,
Pacific
Time
on
Tuesday,
December
14th. 
With
our
unique
ordering
system,
you
can
choose
between
paying
in
Federal
Reserve
Notes
(i.e.
check
or
postal
money
order),
or
with
pre-1965
U.S.
silver
coinage. 
I
should
mention
that
about
half
of
our
customers
now
pay
in
silver.

Today’s
feature
article
(“The
Handyman’s
Tool
Pouch”)
was
too
short
to
be
included
in
the
judging
for
the

SurvivalBlog
non-fiction
writing
contest
.

More
than

$725,000
worth
of
prizes

have
been
awarded
since
we
started
running
this
contest.
Round
98
ends
on
January
31st,
so
get
busy
writing
and

e-mail

us
your
entry.
Remember
that
there
is
a

1,500-word
minimum
,
and
that
articles
on
practical
“how-to”
skills
for
survival
have
an
advantage
in
the
judging.
