So, those of us with wells...

The oldfashioned newfangled way of course.

Also, an appropiate sized ram pump if you have a creek nearby.

I was gonna have a large container to have a decent water pressure gravity fed inside.

If your well is less than about 75 feet there are the old style handpumps. Some of the new ones are functional.

Anyone figured out how to rig up a windmill to fill the large container? I have put a lot of thought into my fluid requirements. It would be wise to learn many ways to have drinkable water.

What about a water-wheel?

Make the buckets on the water-wheel tip & empty out into a container/trough.

I have it figured out. I was just planting seeds to see what grew.

Are you aware you can get water up and over a hill with no pump?

Large tarp + rope (550 paracord) = shelter!

I know this has been mentioned before but I though I would toss it back out there because it's so easy.

I threw a large tarp & 50 yards of 550 paracord in my truck & it can make me a shelter in 5 minutes.

It's so easy...a caveman could do it!

There are websites where you can earn points to redeem for gift cards for Walmart, Target. Amazon, and Ebay to name a few. Also, Kroger usually has good sales and 15% off your first purchase. Free shipping at $35. They also own Vitacost.

Largest pipe at the bottom, progressively smaller pipe to the top. The weight of the water in the bigger pipe pushes water uphill. It helps if there is a bit of an incline for the back end of the big pipe. It is similar to a ram pump but isn't force fed like a ram pump. The windmill or waterwheel could feed it.

 Quoting: Mental Case


Here is a tip to go with that. Instead of tying the paracord in the grommets (they tend to rip out in the wind) place a smooth rock about the size of a golfball or large nut such as a hickory nut on the tarp. Tie the cord around the object on the opposite side of the tarp. The tarp is sandwiched between rock and cord. Cinch cord tight enough so it can't slip over the rock. This works well when your tarp is larger than what you are covering requires.

I saw that in a video in recent months. Makes good sense considering the varying quality of tarps and grommets and sewing. Something rounder than a rock would be good - any "corners" or "edges" on rocks could damage the tarp. A golf ball or something similar would be perfect.

Great idea!

I mentioned it about 100 pages ago, but I ain't gonna go looking for it now :)

I'm glad you brought it up...I had forgotten about that technique until you mentioned it.

My esteem for you grows from moment to moment. Yes, this is the solution that I've got in storage. Pvc pipe with an end cap that has a check valve with the spring removed. Add enough rope and it's a quick way to get hydrated. At some point I hope to build a "hockey puck" pump and see if it's any good.

There is an abandoned house nearby that has a tower for a windmill. A well planned sortie after we go WROL would make a difference for a number of people at least. With a decent reservoir everyone could have as much water as they might want. It is people like us who make life possible for everyone else.

You are so kind, thoughtful, and amazing! Wish we were neighbors - truly I do.

Must you wait until WROL before "appropriating" the abandoned tower? Perhaps if it moved sooner . . .

Smart to be preparing so!

We are at risk right now of so many different possibilities it's almost impossible to consider them all at once. We don't know from which direction troubles will come, nor what cloak they will be wearing. My first concern is that everyone be prepared to stay indoors for some period of time, because we don't know what might be outside. Could be anything, at this point. Biological warfare, dirty bombs, nuclear war, islamics gone wild, grid down, anything.

What we do today may have great effect on how we survive tomorrow.

Do you have a very warm sleeping bag? How is the sleeping going?

That is a great thing to do!

I live without certain things every so often to learn how to deal without.

I went a few years living without AC and hung out in the basement alot...they say one thing you never want to do is lay in direct contact with the ground (or basement floor) because it will suck the heat right out of you.

Well, I was hot...so I laid down on the basement floor & the heat was sucked out of me banana2

However after doing that for a while I started developing a cough...so I stopped & the cough went away.
