Weekly Survival Reader: July 22-26

This week’s links include a humorous story about a houseboat shaped like a giant egg, which works great for a SHTF bug-out by water (or not). There’s a useful Indiegogo project producing patches that repel mosquitoes. It’s actually based on science published in Nature magazine, and not too expensive. Then there’s a number of good gardening links, esp. the one on Red Flint Grain Corn. Flint corn is hardier than sweet or dent corn; some varieties can even survive a frost or two.
