  1. Congrats to all of you that won. I read every one of them and I would not have wanted to judge this contest. It would have been close to impossible to choose a winner. Great job everyone and I hope you put those cool prizes to good use.

  2. Rourke,

    First of all, let me just say thanks! With all of the great postings I saw on a near daily basis, no way did I imagine my post would even get so much as a mention, much less the 1st prize! Wow! I am so completely blown away and honored by this. Keep up the good work getting the word out on prepping and good bush-crafting skills. Your site and daily postings are an inspiration to me, and others like me, to continue, even when I sometimes feel like I might be wasting my time.

    Thanks again so very much.


  3. Hey there Rorke.

    I wanted to say Thanks Again and give a shout out to Shelf Reliance! I got my prize two days ago and I am very impressed with the size of the cans, the outside quality and the packing!

    Please tell them Thank you for me!
