Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
Thread: Florida here, Broward county is seeing a lot of food shortages in Hallandale Beach

Wonder how much is storm prep. Not looking good for anything in Florida.
 Quoting: Pooka


Why do these people panic at the last second instead of prepping? Fer fox lake...water shortages. Bucket...heavy weight..strap it down and collect the rain water. Darwin awards for those who prep in 7 minutes...
 Quoting: Lance Roseman From BC


Apparently Florida residents are unaware that hurricanes do happen there, so they have no idea there is anything for which to prepare. Seems so, at least.

In case I had not linked this earlier, this is instructions on how to close off all sorts of drains in the home, including the toilet. Or perhaps someone linked it to me, in which case, thank you!

I think we are all busy right now with hurricane watching and news regarding it. We'll be busy again in here soon, I hope. Meanwhile wishing an extraordinarily happy and positive end of summer to all of you. The winter may not be so great, as we know. Enjoy this time of good weather to the fullest - bless you all. See you soon!

Peanut butter always, of course. No chips or sodas- bad for you and will upset your physicality during the drive.

Something to warm foods with - there are plug-in food heaters for vehicles, as well as plug-in coolers.

Canned foods that are meals you would normally eat. Coffee of course, in whatever form you prefer. I have one of those little curled metal things that plug in to the cigaret lighter and you place in water to heat it. Instant coffee or tea bags or hot chocolate envelopes would work perfectly, as would dried soups.

Try to eat as normally as possible. Buy fruit as you go and munch on that. Occasionally on the trip purchase a loaf of good whole-grain bread, some lunchmeat of your choosing, or ham, my choosing, a package of cheese slices, a tomato to slice on it (of course you have a couple packages of zip lock bags in the vehicle for whatever) and have a few meals of that. Either finish the meat or toss it before it goes south.

Basically, find ways to eat as closely as possible to your normal diet.

For my last road trip, I made trail mix with nuts and dried fruit. I chopped carrot sticks, cucumber sticks, and bell peppers and packed them in ziplock baggies in a cooler. I also had various types of cheese in the cooler.

Also remember to keep a big ziplock baggie for the trash so it doesn't stink up the car between stops. Write TRASH on it and keep it in the cooler.

Thank you you two hf

Yep do not drink soda. I do get a bag of the crappiest gas station pork rinds still for some reason lol I like the food heater idea a lot Pooka. Travel coffee, tea and soups I like too. Agree with ziplock items before hand too, also can use the later for messy items.

Gemini, I am in love with dried mango from Aldi’s, pick that up and trail mix, thanks! Again ziplock idea, will do that.

I have Coleman small propane tanks, was thinking about the burner attachment. Also have an electric single burner I can plug into the truck.

Great ideas, thank you!

Love love love the cheese and the veggies!!!! So healthy and satisfying!

Trail mix can also be great, depending on contents.

I could eat cheese at any time - and combined with the veggies - oh my! Maybe some crackers under cream cheese to go with?

I have been trying to think of a way to put cheese into my "tsunami trunk" in the vehicle. Cheese is my go-to for protein, and it would be so helpful to have in place in case of such need.

Of course we are not likely to survive the EQ and tsunami, as we live right on the coast, but we will certainly try. Having food that will store at ambient temperatures for long periods, very, very long, we hope, is tough. Suggestions more than welcome!

Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
Pooping:

I have one of these [link to sun-mar.com (secure)] in what amounts to a fancy 'water house'...ie my sink, and shower are in the same building (a rebuilt chicken coop). But they are pricey. So what do you do without a fancy toilet?

A 5 or better yet, 10 gallon bucket with an old toilet seat works fine. You do NOT urinate into the bucket. That will cause it to be too wet. Just piss down the sink or into a chamber pot of some sort and empty daily. Water urine, which is sterile BTW 10-1 and it is a fine fertilizer.

So with your shit bucket you will need peat moss. And if possible something akin to this [link to www.envirozyme.com (secure)]
Everytime you poop, you sprinkle on a bit of accelerant and cover it all in peat moss. This will keep the smell down. It is natural for small 'shit flies' (my own term, not the latin...lol) to gather. But they tend to stay on the shit and do not fly all willy-nilly all over the place.
When the bucket is half full find a place to dump it. In urban areas...under shrubs in public parks is perfect. rinse and repeat..
Don't put a lid on it without adding small holes. it needs oxygen to compost properly. i could get more complex with this so you could get to the point of using the 3 stage process to add to a veggie garden but...my kb is fcked and im using an on-screen kb which sux.

Many people today drink vinegar, especially apple cider vinegar, for health reasons. It's an ancient remedy for many things, and has long been used to purify water, with the acid content. I learned tonight from a Seattle newspaper article that many vinegars are now being used to mix coctails, and specialty shoppes are making individual batches of elegant vinegars.

Here is a recipe used long ago for Roman soldiers and others - they drank vinegar not just willingly, but gratefully, as their "water substitute". So interesting!

My congratulations to your mom for her sudden wisdom and realization! Hope you are picking up a few things for yourself, as they are the least expensive source of preparedness foods and long-term storage foods that exists!

Talked extensively not long ago with an LDS woman, who told me the potato flakes are the best she's ever had - and she even compared them to Idahoan brand instant mashed potatoes - my very favorite!

Safe travel and great purposes!

Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
This is a post by Mariel Martinez that she placed below a video by Canadian Prepper. This is crucial information and a different take than what we have thought of in this country, because we have never experienced such a crisis!

Please read, think, and let's discuss!

ACTUAL EXPERIENCE HERE IN VENEZUELA
7 days no power
Other places 11 days
1. If you live in a good neighbourhood, NO PROBLEM. BAD neighbourhood, SORRY, FROM DAY ONE AT NIGHT, PEOPLE WILL CLIMB UP FENCES WALLS, WHATEVER, WILL STEAL EVERYTHING IN YOUR YARD, ESPECIALLY VALUABLES LIKE WATER PUMPS... This will happen in good neighbourhoods AFTER DAY 3.
2. PRICES OF EMERGENCY GENERATORS WILL BE IN THE THOUSANDS.... after day 2.
3. PEOPLE WILL GO SELL TIME ON GENERATORS TO CHARGE PHONES AND OTHER DEVICES. people will make lines for HOURS JUST TO GET THEIR CELL PHONE CHARGED. by the way, THOSE PLACES WILL BE ROBBED SEVERAL TIMES AND IN THOSE TIMES, YOU MAY BE BEATEN TO DEATH IF YOU RESIST GIVING UP YOUR PHONE (OR SHOT, OR STABBED)
4. people will freak after 4 hours BECAUSE THERE IS NO WIFI. THAT WILL BE YOUR BIGGEST PROBLEM...
5. people will start taking payments by online transactions (as in no card required, just you accessing a computer and making the transaction if the phone lines are still working (which they VERY LIKELY WORK for some time). This will become the norm after day 1. Cash or online transaction.
6. People will start panicking for gas (especially for generators) after 14 hours of the blackout. (at first everyone will think it is a fixable easy problem of a few hours, but half a day later and it is a whole new story)
7. People will start worrying about their food after the first 6 hours. In fact they will go and get ICE
AND THE PRICE OF THAT WILL BE PROBABLY ASTRONOMICAL if you can find it at all.
8. People will go to restaurants and buy lots of cold food like sandwiches and things that require NO COOKING, since there is no water to clean up the mess of cooking. Places that have those will be jammed for business.
9. People will PANIC, FOR REAL, ABOUT WATER AFTER 2 HOURS OF THE POWER GOING OFF.
10. People with kids will have to be with them at all times... IT IS A BREAKING POINT FOR MOST PEOPLE BECAUSE YOU SHOULD NOT MAKE LINES WITH KIDS....AND YOU WILL IF YOU NEED OR WANT THE STUFF... THEY WILL COMPLAIN, GET SICK, DESTROY PROPERTIES, ETC.
11. If you have never carry water, SORRY, YOU WILL GET PAIN, BE TIRED, GET SICK, YOU WILL DESTROY THINGS BECAUSE IT IS NOT EASY. HELL, I SWEAR CARRYING WATER IS WORSE THAT YOU BUILDING PIPES FROM SCRATCH... I know because I have helped doing the second one and men... I would rather build the pipes and the water tank and all that... with certainty, no regrets, same choice FOREVER.
12. You better have lots of gloves and mask and suture kits in your medical kits... You WILL need those.
13. FIRE will be your greatest fear EVER if you go thru one (like I did and so many of my neighbours)
14. You better be prepared for EARTHQUAKES NO MATTER WHERE YOU LIVE. you will experience them. Small, soft, whatever, but you will feel them because of explosions near by or other stuff.
15. Half the people would rather go and eat of the garbage than stealing... But the other half... well... that is another story.
16. After day 3, most people will stop taking their medication. After a few weeks, SORRY... YOU WILL SEE PEOPLE JUMPING DOWN THE BUILDINGS AND NAKED RUNNING ON THE STREET AND PLENTY OF OTHER CRAZY STUFF, the men tend to suicide, women tend to run naked everywhere.
17. People will be living on the gardens and backyards of their property and outside... inside it is NOT an option due to heat, or smells, or you being likely to be robbed because they just need to break a window and throw a molotov thing and you will have to open the doors and all that... so... no, most will just sleep outside, by the way, if it is summer, they may do it naked... If it is raining or something like that they may prefer go to the car and just camp there...
18. some people will make cages for their crazy and their elderly family members... You will see those cases ALL the time, because after they loose a aunt that is found naked hitting someone, or your dad that does not even know his name and he is giving away small pieces of info about you like they remember your car and where you work and if you have money and stuff like that... well, you do not want them outside and with no medication, they will hurt themselves or others... so... solution, locked them in your own house with no clothes, no windows, no nothing. This is especially truth for women.
19. Biggest problem for normal people... they break their glasses, and now, you cannot get one more... so, you are basically blind... This is NOT something that most people would even think about.
20. Most people WILL trow garbage EVERYWHERE THEY THINK IT IS OK, like... your backyard... YOU WILL GET IN TO THOSE KINDS OF PROBLEMS

Prayer is the most powerful force on earth.

“I care not for a man's religion whose dog and cat are not the better for it.” Abraham Lincoln

I sign all karma given. Would that those giving it to me followed suit.
