Utah Preppers author, and CTO of the APN Phil Burns was just interviewed by the Blaze network about the dangerous media turn on preppers based on bits of information around the Connecticut shootings. Go check out his interview, where he sums up nicely the confusion many people are making between the term survivalist vs the term preppers.
Also, Phil will be on the Blaze radio today at 1 MST available via: http://www.theblaze.com/radio/
After that, take the time to review yourself. What are you prepping for? What are you doing to be ready for life in general? Are you effective in your decisions? Remember, preparing isn’t a knee-jerk reaction, it’s adjusting your lifestyle to be ready for what may come.
For those of you local to the Salt Lake City area, there is a great store called NPS. They are located at:
1600 South Empire Road
Salt Lake City, UT 84104
NPS calls themselves a “salvage and freight recovery company”. What that means is their inventory is always changing. They’re setup with a department store layout, for example: clothing, electronics, house wares, hardware and even groceries. Generally you don’t go to NPS looking for a particular item, but to see what deals they might have. Most of their product is reduced from retail prices. The prices range from being just under retail to steals of a deal, it just depends on how lucky you are. (more…)
I saw this on www.slickdeals.net today. National Geographic is selling the Eton Microlink FR160 Self and Solar-Powered AM/FM/NOAA Radio and USB Charger for about $20 with S/H.
Buy from National Geographic for $14.99
Buy from Amazon.com for $29
Congratulations are in order for all those who earned their Technician class license at the last one day class!
The class was quite successful. 29 students. 26 earned their license. It is really quite easy with a little studying!
I must limit the size to 40 people so sign up early to reserve a spot. If you must cancel please let me know immediately so I can free up a slot for someone else. I only had 29 come to the class in September so 10 did not show. I had several people who wanted to come but I told them the class was full. Please cancel if you will not be coming to make room for someone else!!

Just received this. Please note that the Technician Class license is the entry level HAM Radio license. It does NOT require Morse Code, and is very easy to obtain. If you are interested in becoming a HAM Radio operator, plan on attending.
Please e-mail [email protected] if you will be attending. Also let me know if you will be bringing a laptop.
