[quote:Anonymous Coward 1110734:MV8xNTg3OTA4XzMzNTk0MDM4X0FGQ0REMzk3] Making a diesel car operate for a short time on cooking grease Here's a tip which I've seen but attempted. The reason is simple, I've heard that it will bugger up the fuel pump. In a collapse, you may find abandoned vehicles. Some of these are diesel engines. At one time, farmers could buy diesel at reduced prices but it contained a dye in it. They weren't allowed to use it in their cars, but in their farm equipment. Well of course they did, but if detected then there was a fine. As such a lot of farmers use cars with diesel engines. Others have also switched to them too. At at lot of restaurants, they use quite a bit of cooking oil as fried foods are very popular. As the grease is used up, then it's stored in a bin located outside, and then when it fills, that grease is hauled away. This old cooking oil if filtered to remove the food particles and then combined with some kerosene will temporarily work as an alternative diesel fuel, and so get you away from some location, but for whatever portion of a tank you can develop. It might not run later as the food particles might not have been all filtered out, or the kerosene might not have been pure, or the fuel pump might be contaminated or whatever. The point is that you got the Hell of Dodge because of ingenuity when no one else could find fuel or make a car run.

There are many free homeschooling sites with pdf files. It would be great to have them just in case there are issues.
Get medications that your kids need. See if your doctor will prescribe 3 months supplies for them.
Get some presents tomorrow for Christmas. Little gifts that you could give out not only then, but throughout the year as incentives. They'll really appreciate them.
Children can thrive in the woods as long as they have calm parents. They cannot keep up with your pace up and down tails. You've got to plan adequately if you do have to walk some.
Kids are used to incorrectly using a backpack since kids at school wear them in the wrong fashion, which adds too much stress to their lower back. You'll have to reteach them how to buckle it properly and position it higher than they used to wearing it.
Try to make gathering wood into a game. Teach them as much about nature as possible. Being quiet is as important as talking.
Kids love open fires. Tell stories. It can simply be times when they did wonderful things when they were younger. They love hearing how much you love and adore them. Even teens.
Hug and kiss them often. Be generous with your affection. Lavish it on them
