Comment on Prepping 101 – Preppers List of Supplies by Health Mavenhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/02/26/preppers-list-of-supplies/#comment-10334 Wed, 17 Sep 2014 14:21:00 +0000 http://www.theprepperjournal.com/?p=6708#comment-10334 Great information here. I would add some type of vitamin supplements to your list too since nutrition is going to be a big issue too. I found a great whole food vegetable concentrate made from freeze-dried veggies that has a long shelf life at http://www.simplyenof.com/Articles.asp?ID=304.

I have to check out the type of spade bits I buy because I must have purchased the wrong one when I tried to cut a hole in a plastic bucket to make my waterer. The hole wasn’t clean at all and actually when I went in further, it left a nice set of chunks i the plastic. I had to break out my knife and whittle a little bit to clean the hole up before it would work.

Yes the vent is a huge help, but that nozzle that you have to hold with one thumb is a pain too. I prefer the old style but this kit works nicely too. Its a shame we are all to stupid and have to suffer legislation that will keeps us all safe.

Generally, you want to keep heavier items further down in your bag and close to your back and vice versa for lighter items. The following is an example of a properly packed BOB from The Prepper Journal: […]

Comment on What Are You Afraid Of? by Allison Angierhttp://www.theprepperjournal.com/2014/05/03/what-are-you-afraid-of/#comment-10327 Wed, 17 Sep 2014 02:04:00 +0000 http://69.195.124.80/~thepreq2/?p=76#comment-10327 In our area the organic threats are flood and fire. But the thing that really sparked my concern, is that my family and I seem to have been classified by my own govt as some kind of enemy, then they trot off into the sunset, sporty golf-grin in place, and the embers around the world smolder ever hotter. I’m afraid I am years behind — but grateful I got swatted by the clue bat before the window is closed.

We have had plastic containers all the way since I was a wee lad cutting the grass and have never had any issues. I imagine that it is extremes. If you have a plastic gas can in the sun it can swell where as maybe metal would hold its shape better?

Really with gas the problem isn’t the fuel it is the fumes. As long as the container is stored in a proper location and sealed I can’t think of why you would have to have metal. That being said metal cans are superior, but WAY more expensive. The will be what gets mounted on the exterior of the Bug Out Vehicle though.

I’m going to stick with my approach and we’ll meet up later and see who was right. Good luck to you. […]

Sure seems like it is getting bad doesn’t it? This time it isn’t some Mayan calendar nonsense or Y2K paranoia either. All of the events are real and yet people still want to stick their heads in the sand. Strange.

I don’t have the same perspective on life that I used to when I was 22. I would imagine that not many of us do still think the same way when we are in the midst of raising a family and can look back on our 20’s from a couple dozen birthdays. The music that rolled out …read more […]

I must admit that I am similar to you in my approach to “prepping”. I look at it from a response angle. Yes, I will protect my family and what is “mine”. I came into it from the military and it was reinforced after 9/11. I became part of a response agency in 2002. I agree that the gnawing in our stomachs is getting a little more pronounced now. I must say that those who choose to ignore the current state of the world around us are in for a rude awakening. I choose to ignore the nay sayers and carry on. It is not if, it’s when. Thanks for sharing your prespective.

They argue that metal “jerry cans” are the best.

Is there truth to this, or is it overblown concern that can be mitigated with proper procedures?

I keep 25 gallons in our shed at all times. The stuff I stored with Sta-bil I used after it was a year old….the same thing, put it in the car when half full. works for me.
