The Covert Preppers list of Christmas Gifts

I read a blog called "The Covert Prepper", and although it may be a little too doomsday for some of you, he has a really good list today of presents he wishes he would receive for Christmas.  I read the list, and thought I should share it with you all.

These items seem to be really top quality items.  I know the last one on the list (The Sawyer water filter) is the one we have, and we highly recommend it.

Homemade 100-Hour Candles

My friend Keri sent me the link for these instructions.  It looks like a pretty easy preparedness gift you could make for all your friends and relatives.  The candles are made inside cute little 1/2 pint jelly jars.
