• We have new twin grandbabies (5 months old) in our family and I guess it has me thinking about feeding infants in a SHTF situation. Thankfully, ours are breastfed. But babies will continue to be born during an emergeny situation and not all may be able to be breast fed. Does anyone have or remember the formula that we used to use in the 50’s and…[Read more]

  • I am wanting to set up a shower we can use if we lose power. Does anyone know if you can put hot water in one of those hand pump garden sprayers? Would it explode if you put hot water in it and then pumped it to build up pressure to spray with?

  • I saved and saved until I was able to order 18 dozen of the Tattler reusable lids. I really like them! They worked great and I can tell you that it is hard to break the seal. I was afraid that they would pop right off, but no, I had to do some gentle prying to pop the lid on a can of Sloppy Joes I processed. I still have quite a few of the regualr…[Read more]

  • We are renovating a farm house built in the 30’s. We are taking out a lot of old door frames (with paint on them) and the old oak floor in the kitchen (termite damage).Would it be safe to burn this wood in a rocket stove outside maybe to heat water, for washing clothes, bathing, and if the container was closed purifying drinking water. Sure hate…[Read more]

  • I saw these in the EE catalog and was wondering if anyone had one and what they thought about it? Does it work? And why couldn’t you take an unused one of those pressurized cannisters you use in the garden and just add hot water to it and use that as sort of a shower. You could take one of those in the shower with you. The Zodi says it must be…[Read more]

  • I am not too sure about my Volcano Stove. I find the whole Dutch Oven cooking business a lot of trouble LOL. I know I can use it with regular pans too, I just find having to add charcoal from time to time awkward and cumbersome. I have the propane attachment but haven’t connected it yet. I am thinking I wished I had invested my $ in a good Coleman…[Read more]

  • I found these at the grocery store today. 20 bux each. They operate on battery, solar, or electricity and will also charge a cell phone. You have to send off for the AC DC cord and cell phone cord, but the only cost is the p and h. I am charging them right now to see how they do. I bought 2. I think it would be nice to keep one in the car. If you…[Read more]

  • I have started to gather some supplies for bartering. But I am wondering just how y”all plan to go about it. I mean you wouldn’t want to display a lot of extra goods to folks who might not have as much. And do you plan on a designated area to barter in?

  • Can someone tell my how you wash clothes with a bucket and plunger? Do you need a special plunger like Emergency Essentials sells or can you just use a regular one? I am learning so much on this site. Thaniks to all you veteren preppers for helping those of us still new to this. :clap:

  • I’ve been saving my money with the goal to get one of these cookers and today went on the Volcano site and see that they are on backorder. Then I checked the crisis cooker site and found teh same thing. I’m a little bummed because I really want one of these as an alternative to cook with. I’d like a solar over too, but man are they expensive!

  • So I am fairly new at this food storage stuff, so bear with me guys. I know I need to store salt, but what kind? Iodized, non-iodized, seasalt, Kosher salt. There are so many to choose from these days and I don’t know what would be best for my storage.
