Notes from JWR:

Permalink | Print

Today is the birthday of the late Burt Blumert (born February 11, 1929 in New York City, died March 30, 2009.) He once owned Camino Coin Company. (Coincidentally, so did former congressman Dr. Ron Paul from 1984 to 1996.) I was a Camino customer before the turn of the century. I can remember Burt personally helping me dolly out my first purchase of 100-ounce Engelhard bars. That was back when they cost just $580 each. Those were the days. (The same bars now sell for more than $3,200 each.)


Today's first feature article is by our Back Country Editor, Mat Stein. The second piece is by our Medical Editor, Dr. Cynthia Koelker. The third post comes from Pat Casio, our Field Gear Editor. They are all subject matter experts. I am very grateful to all of them for their volunteer work for the benefit of the SurvivalBlog readership.
