Update 9/23/13 – We have a winner!!!

Congratulations to Dan who will be receiving his prize as soon as I can get this in the mail. Look for more contests and giveaways in the near future and thank you all for participating.

I am so excited to have our first giveaway at the Prepper Journal because this is something I have been wanting to do for a long time. We wanted our first contest to be a little more special than a $25 gift card (not that there is anything wrong with that) so I tried to think of items that the average prepper might have a little harder time pulling the trigger on purchasing. This gets into territory that is more than the cost of a bag of wheat, some extra batteries or the coolest new knife out there.

We were lucky enough to partner with EnGarde to offer something that every Prepper worth his salt either wants, has or wishes they could get their hands on and that is a bulletproof vest. Technically, the T.R.U.S.T plate carrier is more than a vest, it is a tactical garment that can also save your life. Complete with MOLLE webbing and 2 Level IIIA soft armor panels give you protection from small arms fire up to and including 9mm rounds. Now the lucky winner will have a gear solution to hang all of their go-to-war items on like ammo pouches while giving them the safety of level IIIA protection should things get to the point where you need some extra protection.

What do you win?

Combined, these are worth $350!!

Good luck!

I’d like to learn more about prepper communities and ideas on how to get a neighborhood group started without sounding like the “tin hat society”.

I want to learn more about surviving the first two months after an event that would result in a “wrol” situation. This would be handy information if presented from the perspective of a family that lives in a larger city but is faced with the decisions of when to leave, how to do so, and where to go.

Talk about a large question but with many unknown variables, but you did ask!

I’m interested in post-event technology. I’m sure everyone has heard about using a metal trash can as a Faraday cage to protect electronics against EMP. Are people storing away old laptops arduinos and handheld radios? If things go sideways and a town needs to re-establish order and services it would great to have even a few old computers to use. They can be very beneficial for keeping track of personnel files, supply levels, gardens and crops, security patrols, etc.

I am interested in learning more about forming functional societal groups in post-event scenarios, and what I can do now to help prepare others who are less concerned for the future.

Thanks DeAnna,

In case you haven’t read it yet, you may want to start with our Prepping 101 series. http://www.theprepperjournal.com/2013/06/12/prepping-101-a-step-by-step-plan-for-how-to-get-started-prepping-pt1/ We cover a lot of ground in there, but I do plan to have downloadable checklists at some point in the future. These will cater to the “list” people just like my wife who like to see a list and check everything off.

Learning, to stay balanced is an absolute, I don’t hear enough about force multiplier’s on the natural level, just hhigh tech such as nv, some of the older vet’s talk alot about booby traps but one cannot get much more out of them except they hurt, foot fall’s, tanglefoot and such of which I have no clue to what they are,,,,, so I’d like to hear more about force multipliers, on the cheap, using stuff around the house or barn or naturely natural,,,,,,

I’d like to learn more about skills to practice while time and finances permit. Having a good stockpile of resources is great initially, but without long-term skills, thriving or even surviving in the long-term is not very feasible.
