    Solutions for Preppers
    Version [04-06-2021]

    Food - Repackaging and Vacuum Packing At Home using oxygen absorbers, manual vacuum pump and a vacuum cleaner
    Food - Camp Stoves. Some are multi-fuel capable.
    Food - Camp Stove Fuels: wood twigs, propane, butane, fuel tablets, charcoal and alcohol
    Clothes Washing without electricity
    Communication, Amateur Radio, FRS, GMRS. Have a plan with family (and a backup plan) of where to meet in case of separation.
    Dehydrating Food With Tammy, a wealth of how-to information.
    Electricity – Generators – Propane does not go bad. Gasoline does and can be a problem.
    Electricity - Portable Power Stations rechargeable from commercial power, solar and automobile.
    Electricity - Whole House Solar is expensive. Affordable systems require a change of life style. Propane is suggested for the cook stove and water heater
    Fire Starting using cotton ball & Vaseline, ferro rod, and magnesium
    Health and Hygiene – And stock up on soap and toilet paper.
    Shelter - On The Road if you have a camper.
    Shelter – For The Homeless
    Space Heating using wood stoves, propane, electricity and kerosene
    Toilets, basic model and composting.
    Water – Filters, Purifiers, Pasteurization, Distillation
    Clean drinking water is a critical resource in an emergency. Three days without clean drinking water then nothing else will be needed.
    Plan ahead or it will be too late. How far must you travel to collect water? Do you have suitable containers? Filters? You need a plan.
    Water - Heating with solar, wood and propane fuel. An outdoor propane powered turkey cooker is a simple, easy and inexpensive hot water heater for a shower. This has been used in off grid shower applications with a 12V Shurflow water pump and kitchen dish sprayer. If an extended shower is wanted fill more buckets.
    Water - Rain Collection - Quick Deploying Rain Catchment There is a treasure chest of information about collecting and storing rain water on Youtube. 5 gallon buckets of water will not survive a freeze.
    Rain water storage for human consumption requires blocking sunlight from the water to prevent algae growth. Water for a survival garden can have algae. Filter before drinking.
    Water - Rain Water Collection and Storage
    Water – Shower using 12 volts or a weed sprayer.The average shower is 17.2 gal, 8.2 min, 2.1 gpm and 105 degrees F. Use a military shower technique to save water.
    Water – Retrieval Without Electricity
    Tools wood saw and knife sharpening

    Everything I post is available at no cost, no credits needed.
    My reward is feeling that I have made another happy.

    My original post has been updated with "Electricity - Solar Energy". Expect more updates to the original post.
