How do you plan on freezing your cupcakes and twinkies for 2 weeks in a freezer that requires electric to power it to freeze things when there is no electric? Sounds like you have some preparations to make lol

Science is important, even in the prepper community. I will give you the following samples:

1) well water. 2) fluoridated city water. 3) distilled water 4) spring water from some Nordic country. 5) room tempature water (thanks OP) 6) cold water.

Ha!... I've got all the goodies, all the guns, and a great water storage in proper blue five gallon and much larger containers. I also have purification and filtration equipment for when that is gone. I ALSO have several cases of lemon juice in small bottles so it will last longer. An opened big bottle will go bad quicker and waste a lot.

In addition I purchased a good water storage purifier that lets water be stored longer. Every time I empty a large pop bottle I clean it out and fill it with water, treat it, and store it. I live in a country area where a lot of folks are like minded.

anonAnother good item to conserve water are those White tubs sold by Clorox or Lysol with pop-up towels. They can clean stuff like eating utensils and dishes. They have them for hands and baby bottoms. A shovel is needed to dig an outhouse. I have been doing this for years.

There is also drinkable water in your toilet tank. (not in the bowl though!)
 Quoting: Downtown


You can drink just about any kind of fresh water if you run it through a coffee filter then add 16 drops of unscented, liquid bleach per gallon to it and let sit for 12 hours.

As soon as you smell a slight chlorine smell, it's safe for drinking. Water purification is a waste of money. Empty s hotel shampoo bottle, visine bottle, small plastic liquor bottle and pour in bleach.

That's nice, but it will last one person about 50 days if 1 gallon is used per day.

I suggest more water be stored as well.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25658088


MORE than 50 days?!?!?!?!?! I've been meaning to ask this question ever since Israel started fighting back at their aggressors.

So HOW MANY DAYS (weeks/months/years????) are we actually preparing for? I can't imagine trying to have preparations for a year or more. I simply would have NOWHERE to store things!

What are some of you guys thinking? What are you planning/thinking will happen?

Thanks for helping a very naive person.

Just something to keep in the back of your mind as we enter these uncertain times (talking long term here).

Might think about going to harbor freight and getting a flint/magnesium fire starter. Or watch some youtube videos on how to start a fire from natural items.

Since you are in the laundry room....dryer lint is good tinder...lights incredibly easy.

Also, cotton balls soaked in vaseline (not ky) it needs to be petroleum based. You coukd also rub some chapstick on the cotton or fabric and light it.

Frito corn chips burn really easy too...but you might want to save those to eat.

If you only store a few jars of peanut butter and pilot bread along with some water, you may be ok till help arrives.

But if we have learned anything...help may never arrive. So do something to help yourself. Anyone can fill big coke or Pepsi bottles with clean water. The bottles take pressure, are food approved, seal well with the plastic lids, and are still perfect in a flood. They can freeze solid and it will not hurt them if you stand them up so the lid does not crack. You could bury them in the back yard and the critters will not get into them. Things like rice, beans, sugar, salt, barley, Whole wheat, bullion, nuts, and even Jelly beans can fit through the small pop opening and be safely stored.You can do even more with V8 or plastic juice bottles as they have bigger openings.
Even on a budget you can prepare to take care of your family.
If nothing happens…you can eat it all anyway.

Incorrect.

Your home is your community. If you surround yourself with likeminded people who aren't afraid of the dark, your chances of survival are much greater.

Your rights to use violence to defend your family extend to your property line. Anyone willing to attack you in your home will attack you anywhere thus your home is the best place for safety.

The safety of your home starts with your community. If you live in a tight community where everyone helps each other, that is as good as it gets.

Running provides little safety since all crossroads and bridges will likely have checkpoints. Anyone outside of your community should be considered a threat if they come during upheaval.

You are much better standing your ground if you can, than wandering from one bad place to a place much worse. People on the move will be targeted first.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 25915094


Wrong! Again there will be more then you can stop seeking what you have. Finding a like minded community in todays America is extremely tough and for those of you who believe you will have friends. Your friends you won't be able to count on one hand. When things get bad your worst enemy will be humans outside your family. Very strong an rational friends have killed them selves off on boats out in the oceans when they had no water to drink. It happens in a matter of hours. Your false sense of security is dangerous to both you and your family. Your home will be attacked and pillaged first and they will keep coming. The Indians lost cause the white man kept coming. Your home is a very dangerous place to be. You will not have enough ammo or defense to stop them. Just something to think about.
 Quoting: Wolverine 16344097


By the way when the SHTF your rights as you know them today and people and structures to protect those rights will not be available to help you or your family. Those same people who protect your rights will be the first people through the door to remove your weapons when things are chaotic saying that it will be dangerous for anyone to have weapons. Yes they will bust your door down and take your weapons in your home just like they did after hurricane katrina, something I didn't considered to be a real disaster. There will be much worse disasters then Katrina and Sandy.

There are no more non civil servant jobs. Everybody works for the government! O my bad I thought I was still in 2016 I didn't realize I jumped back a few years to warn people! My bad. There are still a few non civil servant jobs left but they will disappear soon. The government jobs will decrease for a bit with layoffs and then they will pick up again but never be the amount or number they were in before. Those that don't have jobs will live off what the government divies up for them from what they tax the government workers for now. The rich still will never be taxed under any party as it always has been! Buckle up. The dollar is about to fail and an alternative temporary source will be introduced until the ultimate world wide currency is established.

There are many ways to distill water problem being it takes all the vitamins and minerals out of the product good idea would be to keep bottles of vitamins and mineral suplements handy to put back into distilled water if you ever have to go through the effort of doing that

Re: Remember a water heater has average of 50 gal drinkable water.
Here's the best you'll get. Credit goes to whiteangel from another thread. Purify 20,000 gallons for less then $20 and weighs less then 2 lbs.


Calcium hypochlorite is one of the best chemical disinfectants for water, better than household bleach by far. It destroys a variety of disease causing organisms including bacteria, yeast, fungus, spores, and viruses.

Calcium Hypochlorite is widely available for use as swimming pool chlorine tablets or white powder that is much more stable than chlorine. This is often known as “pool shock”.
How to Disinfect Water Using Calcium Hypochlorite

Using granular calcium hypochlorite to disinfect water is a two step process.

* To make a stock of chlorine solution (do not drink this!) dissolve 1 heaping teaspoon (about one-quarter of an ounce) of high-test (78%) granular calcium hypochlorite for each two gallons (eight liters) of water.
* To disinfect water add one part of the chlorine solution to 100 parts water to be treated.
* Let the mixture sit for at least one-half hour before drinking.

Be sure to obtain the dry granular calcium hypochlorite since once it is made into a liquid solution it will begin to degrade and eventually become useless as a disinfecting agent. This also means you should make your treated drinking water in small batches, for example enough for a few weeks at a time at most.

Another plus for using calcium hypochlorite to disinfect water for emergency use is that a little goes a very long way. A 1-pound bag of calcium hypochlorite in granular form typically costs only a few US dollars and can be obtained in any swimming pool supply section of your hardware store or online. This amount will treat up to 10,000 gallons of drinking water, which is enough for a family of four for some six or seven years at a gallon per day per person!

Calcium hypochlorite will store for a long period of time and remain effective as a chemical drinking water treatment. So get rid of the household bleach and buy a can of Calcium hypochlorite for your disaster emergency water disinfection needs. It lasts far longer and treats far more water than the traditional chlorine bleach water disinfection treatment.

Store in a ziplock baggie or a glass jar without a metal lid. This can not touch metal as it is corrosive. Indefinite shelf life.
