  1. So how much water do you keep in your pack? I realized that while im on the go in a bug out situation, water is gonna be a number one priority. Especially if I have many miles to walk. I want to carry at least 80oz of water in my bag, more if space allows. How much water do you carry? Im planning on carrying mine in a light 50oz Ice Canyon water bottle and a 30ish oz berkey water filter bottle. I also have a 100oz water reservoir, but I dont know if I should keep it filled right now as it would be pressed against the back of my maxpedition vulture II and my back and Im afraid it will burst or create an awkward carrying position if I need to grab and go.
  2. what i mean is, i have read a bunch on how the water bottles we buy cases of break down after a while and contaminate the water. now this of course is after a good amount of time. now i see on the prep store sites they have the bigger like 5 gallon thick blue water containters that i beleive dont break down. i have like 20 cases of the nestle 32 count bottle waters and wondering if i should transfer all of that to bigger thicker containers like i said above? and of course i have read to just put tap water in them too and stop buying bottled all together. suggestions? what are ya'll doing?

    New solar product

    My name is scott I am just starting a business where my partner and I can provide people with an alternative option for getting fresh water. We only have one kit (Makes everything simple) The pump can lift water from 200+ ft below ground Its entirely off the grid and has two batteries that will charge during the day for continuous operation EMP resistant, since the pump is underground You could use the kit to water livestock in a remote field or to water a garden, the uses are endless Contact me if your interested at
  4. Does any body have any good experience or knowledge about setting up a rainwater roof runoff system for potable water? I'm thinking one these 2000 gal. tanks with a modified downspout feeder and a filter on the spigot. Any better ideas? By the way, I will have a metal roof, and I'm in the Great Lakes region. Thanks, NightOwl

    how is your water supply?

    I have been setting up my BOB and my BIB and have enough water purification tablets to purify 200 gallons of water, and water purification straws to purify another 100 gallons. i am mainly so prepared because my BOL is quite a ways away, and if i am moving i have planned to hit many streams and lakes but i would not have alot of sit time to boil water to purify. so how prepared are you? how much water can you safely purify to drink when the SHTF? and how much water do you have already bottled in the house when the SHTF?
  6. I live in the Willamette Valley, so nestled between the coast range on the west and the Cascades to the east, and not only does the Willamette River pass through my community, so does the McKenzie and literally dozens of rivers and creeks. In some ways, this could be ideal when choosing a BOL, since access to fresh/running water should be a consideration. But as recent flooding has shown, proximity to a river isn't always great. I'm especially concerned with the possibility of a dam failure. The McKenzie River has at least a couple of substantial dams and has been "tinkered with" by the Army Corps of Engineers over the years, so that it's hard to determine where the river would actually flow should they be destroyed by an act of terrorism, a natural disaster (like earthquakes/volcanoes, which are a certainly consideration in the Cascades), or even gradual disrepair if there is no government or utility company maintaining them. I would hate for my arrival at my BOL to somehow wind up looking like the end of O Brother Where Art Thou... or to have to add scuba gear to my BOB so that I have a hope of retrieving previously secured supplies. My question is: Are there any groups, government organizations, even insurance or actuarial associations that assess threats to dams, bridges, or other infrastructure? And do they offer any kind of worst case scenario predictions? I haven't found any as yet, but trying to find a good BOL that is close to but not threatened by water is turning out to be a somewhat daunting task. Thanks for any pointers!
