Your Hump Day Reading List for September 11, 2019

Welcome to your Hump Day Reading List!

This is your refuge from the impersonal Google and FaceBook algorithms that seem to run our lives these days. Instead of a machine deciding what you’ll see, I personally go out and look for great articles that actually have value in the quest for greater personal and family safety.

From all of the articles that I find, I weed out the “fake news” and those that don’t have direct application to some aspect of preparedness. Then, to fight the growing scourge of information overload, I distill everything down to what I believe to be the three most useful articles you can read right now, explain the context of those articles, and identify any bias so you can trust what you read.

It’s a more personal, more targeted, and more efficient way to get the information you need!

Going shooting in the wilderness? Be safe!

Instead of belonging to a gun club or using a commercial range, many gun owners enjoy heading out into the countryside to shoot.
In my area of the world, this is often an old gravel pit out in the woods. There are lots of such locations scattered around the Pacific Northwest, as they’re used to provide the materials to build and maintain the logging and access roads that criss-cross the mountains.
Being outdoors, where the air is fresh ...
