    Haven't done any prepping lately... just enjoying the fruits of years of such. Masks and gloves? Didn't have to scramble... already had 'em. Shelves empty of ibuprofen, Tylenol, and no antibiotics? Already had 'em. Rush on gun and ammo purchases? I'm set. Electricity out? Plenty of propane. Soap, cleaners, alcohol? Stacks. Stimulus check? Don't need one. Have an older, somewhat compromised gentleman living around here... has to scrape by on $1000 a month. Usually depends on food banks or selling his blood to survive, but that's all shut down or empty shelves. Plenty of food to help him out. Every problem which has come up, I already seemed to have the solution in my stores. It's a good feeling.

    I've got some half-empty canisters somewhere. I'll try to dig 'em up and give this thing a whirl. If you never hear from me again, you'll know what happened.

    I have tried to fill them with little luck, if you open the blow down valve they fill better.

    The problem I faced with a dozen I filled is that the valved leaked out all the contents except one.

    That valve is the reverse of a tire filling valve.

    A pump is needed to do the job right, make a hand one from a single acting air cylinder say 1" Bore with a 2" stroke.

    It would be similar to a hand operated bilge pump.

    Put tank on a scale to measure the content.

    Just bought more organic and non-gmo veggie starts. Will be planting them, plus more of what's ready in the greenhouse...

    We need to get going on the garden as it's pretty lightly planted so far...

    Added 3 new AR500 targets to the target range
    A bullseye target and 2 bowling pins

    Looking at a 4X4 square hole that's 6-feet deep and covered with old plywood to keep the rain from filling it, and wondering if it'll ever have an outhouse sitting over it! Many family members aren't onboard with prepping and the only thing that keeps me from total frustration is the thought of their having to go on a nature hike for the call of nature. SO frustrating! Wished I was a better builder!

    with one or two holes?

    You do want to cover them and make sure there is a vent pipe installed.

    Grandparents had one on the farm when I was a kid.

    Also they were used in the army before the EPA bs.

    Sat many times on them in both places.

    I was thinking two : ) I have the vent pipe and materials because lumber is getting harder to find. My brother drew up the plans, and hopefully it will be built soon--if I did it, heaven help the first person to take a seat . . . Ha Ha!

    Spent some raining-outdoors time this morning to package and label all the clothing in my Extended BOB Clothing Module.

    Got everything stuffed into 1-gallon ziplok bags with printed labels, then added an inventory list to include in the bag (the big blue thing on the left).

    The Happy Amazon Delivery Van stopped by a bit ago.... dropped of the package with my 1-lb propane tank to lindal adapter.

    .....................................What Was Your Prep Of The Day (Part 2)-backpack-stove-propane-adapter.jpg

    Now I can run my small backpack stoves on 1-lb propane tanks if I need to............ provided I don't turn them all the way up and melt them!
