    THE MOST IMPORTANT PREP...... WATER

    we need several ideas for water, buying bottled water is ok but it takes alot of space and it can become contaminated, nothing can be 100% sterilized not even bottles water. i recommend asking for food grade containers at restaurants and bakeries, they usually give them away, clean them store the lids inside in a box so you don't damage the rubber seal and you can just stack the buckets on top of each other and put a bag over them to keep clean. in a emercency you can fill them with a garden hose or under the foset in the bath tub. In a no time you can have hundreds of gallons of water, you can sanitize it later. watch my video and come up with ideas I missed, this may be the most important thing of all after 3 days your history

    Re: THE MOST IMPORTANT PREP...... WATER

    Very good ideas. I am trying to learn how to use a witchin stick where you walk with a Y shaped birch tree limb and the limb points down where there is water. At first I didn't think this was true, until I saw someone do it. Also, I have tons of those little auqa purification tablets on hand just in case. I never thought about using food grade or asking for food grade buckets. Great idea! My wife is going to kill me now when were eating out! lol

    I think it is called a douser stick, but I don't see how it would work . Personally I think i have a better idea if your out in a rural area. I would trap an animal in an area, trap it and feed it some sort of salty food, then after a day free it, I can almost guarantee after a long hot day of salty dehydration it will run towards the nearest water supply it knows about any you just follow the tracks. cleaning and purifying the water is the easy part, finding it is the hard part. just a thought lol

    I also recommend a large size water filter system such as the Berky. Then ponds, rivers and lakes become usable. If you have a well, be sure you can pump water if the grid goes down using batteries and a large inverter or a generator.
