Have you checked out the American Preppers?

If you look at my list of state prepper blogs (to your right), you will find atop it the link to the American Preppers Network. American Prepper, formerly known as American Survivalist (from Idaho, no less!) has a link to all state prepper network sites listed on his blog, and some have been claimed and some have not. If there is no one who has stepped forward in your state, you might want to step forward and start the blog yourself....the more people around you who are prepared, the fewer people and fewer problems you have to worry about. I'll keep the links I already have, and leave you to find the other state sites on the American Preppers page--it went up fast, and I'm sure it was a lot of work. Exciting to think that more and more people will be prepared for emergencies!

For some reason my internet service has been moody today, so I don't know how many posts there are out there about further peanut butter problems. I read another article here about continuing concern about connections between peanut butter and salmonella poisoning, so if you have some of the products mentioned in your pantry, your storage, or 72-hour kit (hey, peanut butter and crackers is an easy-to-store choice :) please be careful and make sure that you don't have products that might be contaminated. Better safe than sorry...

And if you have something to contribute to your state site, or even on a subject that is on another state site, let the person running the site know. They will be grateful for your assistance. The more you share, the more people will know, and it helps everyone. United we stand...

I'm glad you reminded me about the peanut butter. We have not bought any for awhile so I think ours is good to go. And I won't be buying any P.B. for a good while. Good job Marie.

Marie, well they done went a messed up my peanut butter now. Man, a guy just can't seem to have anything to hang onto now days. Oh well, better check all mine.

These are very exciting times for preppers across the land for sure. At a time when we need some good news, I see prepper networks popping up everywhere. Thank God is all I can say. Keep up the great work.

Joel--Hopefully not everyone is affected, because peanut butter is such a good storage item, but it is worth it to check if there's a potential problem. Glad to see that you're running the Ohio site--I'll be by to learn more! Thanks for your comment!

Bullseye--Yeah, I guess you can't be too careful. But for something that's filling that you don't have to cook, it doesn't come much better than peanut butter when it comes to the food storage list...

Hey, it doesn't get much more exciting in blogdom than how many people are getting prepared, at least for me. Thanks for being such a great example with the Kentucky Network--it's amazing how much information transfers over and is not state-specific, so that everyone can benefit. And hopefully everyone will take advantage of it and start prepping...thanks for your comment!
