Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
This thread might be a good place for me to put down this idea, OP. While I was sitting on the toilet about ninety minutes ago as of this post I was reading through a Diabetes booklet I have. I was also thinking about the inevitable collapse of American society, and all of Humanity shortly after the collapse of America. I realized that insulin has a definite shelf life. I actually thought the stuff could remain in cold storage for decades and room temperature for months straight. Nope... turns out the stuff is only viable in the best of circumstances for normally less than a month's time. Only the "best of the best" insulin lasts up to close to eighty days in the best of circumstances.

This means once the power grid is out, probably for months or years straight, Type 1 Diabetes are going to definitely die within about a month's time. Unless if there are a number of them who happen to have operational generators with the proper maintenance and fuel to last for years or longer and manage to secure a vast amount of insulin all Type 1 Diabetics will die within about a month's time. Type 2 Diabetics on the other hand will have a chance to eat healthier depending on where they're surviving and being willing to eat healthy foodstuff.

I could of sworn I heard of a plant in another GLP thread that is a natural form of insulin. If this is true this would be absolutely essential for Type 1 Diabetics to grow as much and often as possible during the later Christian Apocalypse Events.
 Quoting: darkwolf007

There is a way to get insulin from pigs and sheep. My mother learned to do this, but I would need to research the concept to be of any use. I suppose we could put this under butchering and alchemy.
 Quoting: Éireann


Welcome here, Eireann! Glad you joined us! There will be some people with diabetes or family members with it that have access to pigs and sheep, so you would be doing them a great kindness! This thread is for anything at all that helps in preps, and hopefully an emphasis on being able to do so on a budget!

Get a bunch of solar light sticks (the kind you line your driveway with) for emergency use indoors. Charge em during the day, bring em in at night.
They used to sell cheap ones at Walmart for about a dollar...

I do the same and use indoors. We lose power here often and my kids are afraid of the dark so I keep one in their rooms.

Rabbit is the only meat that is healthier, I think, but I cannot bear to eat bunnies. Had to as a child because my grandfather raised them. Did a couple times as an adult, then couldn't handle it any more.

Of course, if starving, a rabbit would probably seem like the very best thing I've ever eaten.

Anyway, I also have a sh__ ton of candles. Thrift store is sometimes a good place to find cheap ones

I have never seen anything burn as clean or as long as crisco shortening!!!

If I'm burning a wide candle, I'll add a little shortening to the top before I light it.

After an hour or 2 it's only burned the shortening & barely any of the candle wax.

I have this stupid little but wide candle that I have over 50 hours of burn time on because I keep adding some crisco :)

Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
Survival Water Procurement

Note: Please purify all water! It’s better to be safe than sorry and the incubation periods for some water borne illness’s are upwards of a month. Yes, bad water can kill you. Also you cannot see a bacteria or virus!

Water Sources
• Vegetation: Questionable. Depending on type of plant or tree and source of water.
• Streams or Moving Water: Usually safe.
• Ponds & Lakes: Stagnant (danger!).
• Rainwater: Chemicals in the air. Distilled.
• Ice or snow: Chemicals in the air. (Melt first or will lower your body temp.)

Stagnant Water:
Stagnant water can be dangerous for drinking because it provides a better incubator than running water for many kinds of bacteria and parasites. Stagnant water is often contaminated with human and animal feces, particularly in areas of low rain. Other risks could include some insect species that lay eggs in water such as Mosquito larvae.

Acquiring Water from a Tree:
One must exercise caution when getting water from any plant as some may be poisonous or sprayed with chemicals. Please do not try this unless you are sure the source is nontoxic. Do not attempt near a roadway or fecal matter.

What you need: A large bag, Rubber bands, tape or zip ties.

1. Find a tree that is healthy, and looks green..
2. Find a branch that has a lot of healthy leaves on it.
3. Take the bag and some zip ties.
4. Put the branch into the bag, allowing some material to hang below the tree.
5. Wrap the zip tight around the edge of the bag sealing the edge of the bag around the tree.
6. Wait, and over time, the tree will transpire water, which will be caught by the plastic bag, and gather in the bottom.

Note: Leaves will die if this is done for an extended period. This does not generate a lot of water so it must be repeated several times. Please purify all water.

Acquiring Water from Heavy Dew:
One must exercise caution when getting water from any plant as some may be poisonous or sprayed with chemicals. Please do not try this unless you are sure the source is nontoxic. Do not attempt near a roadway or fecal matter.

What you need: Cloth (a shamwow was suggested)

1. Attach cloth to areas of the knee and below depending on height of vegetation.
2. Walk through the dew as it is being collected on the cloth.
3. Wring out cloth into a cup or similar object.
4. Repeat.

Note: Upwards on a gallon an hour of water acquired. Essentially distilled water is procured because minerals are removed when water evaporates.

Signs of Tainted Water

• Smells bad
• Milky like Discoloration
• Unpleasant Taste
• Stickiness

Water Purification Methods

Egyptian Well – If you are obtaining your water from a pond or stream you can filter the water a bit without even pulling it from the ground. Travel around your water source and try to find the sandiest shoreline possible. Using any tools you may have for digging and dig a hole several feet from the water source. Keep digging until you hit the water line, the depth at which water will begin to seep upward into your hole. Continue digging until the hole is deep enough into which you can dip a container and retrieve the water. If this isn’t possible use a piece of cloth to soak up the water and squeeze it out into a container.

Leave it alone – Set out a plastic bottle filled with murky water for a little while and you will notice that some undesirable contents will settle at the bottom. Pour out the water on top remove the rest and repeat if needed.

Distillation - Distillation involves boiling water and then condensing the steam into a clean container. This keeps all the materials that do not evaporate in the bottom of your pot containing the boiling water. Distillation removes all the minerals from your water which some scientists and doctors think you need.

Sunlight Radiation – I suggest a #2 clear plastic container or a similar thick durable plastic up to 3 liters. Thin, soft plastics leech chemicals into your drinking water after heat exposure. This method will only remove germs from your water so you will have to filter it to remove the chemicals. Place the container in the sun for 6 hours or up to 10 for maximum effectiveness. Place the container so it can get as much sun exposure as possible. The UV rays of the Sun are what kill the bacteria so the temperature does not matter.

Water Purification Tablets – Use as directed.

Iodine - Placing 5 drops of 2 percent tincture of iodine in a canteen full of clear water. If the canteen is full of cloudy or cold water, use 10 drops. (Let the canteen of water stand for 30 minutes before drinking.)

Boiling – At least 1 minute. Increase to 3 minutes for high elevation and up to 10 for maximum effectiveness. Can be done alone or with a filter but please filter first so you do not ingest the debris. This method also makes the water flat or removes the air from it. It will taste funny so to remedy this you will need to shake it up in a bottle for a little while.

Obtaining Charcoal

You can get charcoal from any hardwood coals. All you need to do is remove the organic materials from the hardwood and you have charcoal. Care will need to be taken when making your charcoal so you don’t burn it up. Make a fire and simply put a coffee can over the top of it so it does not burn.

Creating your own Water Filters

What you need: A water bottle, sand, gravel or rock (various sizes), grass, cotton, or cloth, a coffee filter and charcoal.

1. Cut the bottom off a water bottle discard it. Puncture a hole in the bottle's lid carefully.
2. Place cotton balls at the neck of the half-bottle. Followed by charcoal.
3. Place a layer of fine-grain sand over the charcoal. Put some gravel into your bottle starting with the smaller rocks first. Place a coffee filter on top of the cotton, sand and gravel layers.
4. You must prime it before use. Run some water through it until it runs clear.

Note: Many of these materials may be substituted for other things.

Drinking Contaminated Water

I have found over 50 water borne diseases. Some are mild and some are terrible. The SARS virus, Dysentery, and Botulism just to name a few common diseases that come from unsanitary water.

Symptoms from drinking contaminated drinking water can include abdominal discomfort, fatigue, weight loss, diarrhea, fever, loss of appetite, substantial loss of weight, bloating, increased gas, nausea, cramps, vomiting, muscle aches, blood in urine, rash, chills, asthmatic attack, neurological manifestations, liver enlargement, itching around
the anus, nervous manifestation, intracranial tension, dry mouth, blurred vision, difficulty swallowing, difficulty breathing, slurred speech, nose bleeding, profuse sweating, sore throat, and finally spastic paralysis.

Levels of contaminants in drinking water are seldom high enough to cause immediate health effects. Incubation periods range from immediate to 28 days for Hepatitis A.

In developing countries four-fifths of all the illnesses are caused by water-borne diseases, with diarrhea being the leading cause of childhood death.

If you swallow a leech, it can hook onto the throat passage or inside the nose. It will suck blood, create a wound, and move to another area. Each bleeding wound may become infected.

1.8 million Deaths annually are credited to drinking contaminated water worldwide.

Note on Distilled Water

I suggest only using distilled water to detox your body or in survival situations because it lacks minerals. The water will actually pull it from your body some speculate.

 Quoting: Presqu'ile


Presqi, this is incredibly great! Water is the number one thing we will require, and cannot do without at all. To have multiple ways to get it - super!!! ANd thank you for the emphasis on purifying - if we don't, we're dead.

Here’s a link about using colloidal silver to purify water.
 Quoting: aliasx


I love colloidal silver, but for water purification, I like hydrogen peroxide better... and it is crazy cheap.


It is what was used as an antibiotic before what is used today. It is or was used in eye drops when babies are born and the salve is used on burn victims. I have had great success using it for various things and to get rid of an infection from an abscessed tooth I couldn’t get hold of the dentist for. Worked within 24 hours.
 Quoting: aliasx


I have also given to my kitties. One for a weepy eye and another who was bit from an animal to clear up his infection. In both cases I put few drops in their food a few times a day for 3-5 days. Same with humans although some people take it daily. I only use when needed. Can be used topically as well.
 Quoting: Anymous Cowboy


Brilliant.

Also check Chlorine Dioxide, Hydrogen Peroxide, and Iodine + Sea Salt Solution for very similar uses.
 Quoting: Pooka


Never have heard of using peroxide for purifying water - it would sure taste better than using bleach! Tell us more, please.

I've never done anything with colloidal silver - know little about it and am frankly a little afraid of it. Glad it has worked so well for you and yours.


Pooka, don’t ever be afraid of colloidal silver. If I had to have ONE anti microbial for shtf, that would be it.

Canned cheese would be my total thing - I adore cheese. We only have a c ouple very small Mexican stores here - price would probably be prohibitive, right?

--------

There's that squirt on cheese that comes in a presurized can to squirt on crackers (bacon flavored)...and velveta doesn't need to be fridgitated until it's opened.

Then you have that cheese dip in a jar next to the fritos & nacho chips.
 Quoting: Mental Case


NUUUUUUUUUUUUUUU Neither of those are real cheese - velveeta is water and aluminum. I believe the canned type is too.

Nasty stuff, and aluminum is implicated in Alzheimer's.

[Check your antiperspirant - you may be soaking in aluminum on a daily basis!]
 Quoting: Pooka


I have so many boxes of velveeta in my pantry it’s not funny. During shtf, morale will be just as important as anything else. And what would be more comforting than some yummy Mac n cheese not from a box, hmm?

I know it’s supposed to be one of the most unhealthy things to eat but dam it I love Mac and cheese with it. You know if anything survives the end of the world it’s gonna be Velveeta and Cheese Wiz.

Anyway, I also have a sh__ ton of candles. Thrift store is sometimes a good place to find cheap ones

--------

I have never seen anything burn as clean or as long as crisco shortening!!!

If I'm burning a wide candle, I'll add a little shortening to the top before I light it.

After an hour or 2 it's only burned the shortening & barely any of the candle wax.

I have this stupid little but wide candle that I have over 50 hours of burn time on because I keep adding some crisco :)

Re: Practical Prepping Protocol even if Poor
Continuation of another thread of wonderful people with the best ever ideas for practical prepping even for those with little money.

We'll also address the issues which may come up about "food stamps" and how to best manage without them, or with reduced amounts, or with partial box of food delivered with partial "food stamps".

We address power outage, heating and cooking methods, first aid, we run disaster scenarios to see if we know what to do.

This is probably the only prepping thread a person would need right now, whether long-time prepper here to share, or newbie prepper here to learn.

Welcome!! Join us and learn and teach and enjoy!!

This thread might be a good place for me to put down this idea, OP. While I was sitting on the toilet about ninety minutes ago as of this post I was reading through a Diabetes booklet I have. I was also thinking about the inevitable collapse of American society, and all of Humanity shortly after the collapse of America. I realized that insulin has a definite shelf life. I actually thought the stuff could remain in cold storage for decades and room temperature for months straight. Nope... turns out the stuff is only viable in the best of circumstances for normally less than a month's time. Only the "best of the best" insulin lasts up to close to eighty days in the best of circumstances.

This means once the power grid is out, probably for months or years straight, Type 1 Diabetes are going to definitely die within about a month's time. Unless if there are a number of them who happen to have operational generators with the proper maintenance and fuel to last for years or longer and manage to secure a vast amount of insulin all Type 1 Diabetics will die within about a month's time. Type 2 Diabetics on the other hand will have a chance to eat healthier depending on where they're surviving and being willing to eat healthy foodstuff.

I could of sworn I heard of a plant in another GLP thread that is a natural form of insulin. If this is true this would be absolutely essential for Type 1 Diabetics to grow as much and often as possible during the later Christian Apocalypse Events.

Glad i saw this thread! What I am wondering about is if it all goes down, what I'll do about my hypothyroidism meds. Most hypo is caused by a lack of iodine, but i was born with it so Idk if thatd be sufficient for me...

I am in same boat as you and I have no answer. I just get my prescription filled for 3 months at a time which is cheaper.

 Quoting: Presqu'ile


Didn't know it's great for sleep, too, but not surprising - it is such a superfood with so many incredible properties. We really need to encourage everyone to buy the real thing.

Yes, I also have many dehydrated items of all varieties. Possibly the most edible of all "prepper" items.
