    preparedness is a state of mind....to me the best prep is knowledge on how to make everything else. But having something to start with just gives you that buffer to learn again. Good luck and make preps a part of your daily life, not just a periodic thought. Life just slaps you sometime for no reason. I'm two weeks without power right now. I haven't even really noted the absence other than n occasional running of the geni to charge up the batteries. when I get the solar rig, that may only be a weekly to monthly need.

    Howdy. We all get a little complacent at times. I usually snap out of it every time I catch the news. Times-a-wasting.

    Welcome from Oregon! STORE MORE WATER. Go on Craiglist and watch for food grade containers. I was able to pick up 275 gallon caged plastic food grade containers for like $40 each. Some were honey shippers, some apple juice. I also have an 1100 gallon which was more expensive.

    Watch the labels................. your example says 'boiler glycol'. It might be a food-grade container, but I sure a fook wouldn't store any water in it.

    I gotta tell you.... that sounds like a terrible idea. When do we start?

    I grabbed that shot off the internet: you're right! Mine were honey and apple juice containers.

    Holy cow that’s a lot of water...I have been struggling to convince myself to get a 55 gallon barrel. Problem is space..we are moving soon and upgrading on space so I plan to do it then.

    Other than the barrel I want about 6 5 gallon jugs.
