3 posts in this topic

If you already have this info great. But for those that don't here is some personal experience info and products to think and research for you and yours...

Water Bob We love this device...but it has to be deployed and filled prior to water issues

Aquatank..bladders that will go under a bed or couch or??? we just bought  two of these last November.. we are monitoring them. Seem to be good so far.

My Christmas gift from my family this past Christmas was a Supertanker 275 gallon from WALMART online... LOVE THIS!!!! Less space than our 55 gallon blue drums!

The blue 7 gallon jugs at big stores... watch for leaking on the faucet areas..if so just stand it up!  

Our cistern is Holding up...we are landscaping around it and building another cover over it for prevention of the UV destroying the material.

Well, after all that we are now up to approx. 2500 gallons of potable water on our homestead. BUT.. With family and animals though and after seeing that WEST Virginia chem spill... IT STILL AINT ENOUGH!

hey it is all good the more ways you store things the less chance that you will go without.

 

earthquakes and storms can break canning jars but if a person has canned and DH {dehydrated} FD {freeze dried}

 

then chances are no matter what they will be able to take something with them or some will survive.

 

the old biblical adage of don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Great posts guys, Water storage is number 1 since you die in a few days without it. I still have my products for bug out though so I can scoop river and pond water on the go. That way I don't have to light a fire and boil it if i'm laying low. I figure if SHTF i'd be a rich bartering man with all the equipment in the back room. Meanwhile, I'm just scraping by in the crazy world.

    • did you get the ruger or the cz for the trip?
    • Thanks Wally! I should have added, that no matter how hard I try,I continue being a poop magnet in life. Im going to get myself, some nice T shirts that read, “ Go ahead! poke the bear!” Or, “Of course, I’m an (insert favorite expletive here), I’ve been married longer than 40 years, my wife already let’s me know that!” I do think she would beat me severely were I to wear one of those!
    • what an adventure i am glad you made it back TP safe and sound...
    • So, we went out to the Midwest to see the son and his family. Trip out was uneventful, trip back was “interesting”.Hurricane Force north winds, driving snow and ice, and several idiots with vehicle keys that had no business operating any motor vehicle. Gangs of fun! No, seriously, it was the pits. Learned a lot, about our winter driving preps that we put into the vehicle for “just in case”scenarios like the trip coming home. No, we didn’t get stuck, or have to be rescued, we were merely inconvenienced as opposed to caught with our knickers down and twisted in knots. So, we are fanatical about never getting below half a tank, and that saved our bacon. We managed to get one of the last hotel rooms, in a nice small town, in a decent hotel, because we gassed up, upon arrival in town, before we did anything. We learned I-70 was closed and would remain so for about two nights. Well, in the a.m., it was opened for a very short window, and while others were in line at the gas (petrol for the Canuck) station, we and five FedEx tractor-trailer rigs hit the road. About 90minutes later, we were back down to 60mph sustained winds, with gusts going higher, and the folks behind us, got stuck for another night.  Of course, we had plenty  of TP, wet wipes, bags, water and food just in case, SUVs come in handy for hauling. If we had to be out in that crap we would have perished. Glad it wasn’t a century or longer ago!  So, while visiting with the family, we went out to dinner in the adjacent large metro area they live close to. I of course was legally carrying concealed, as was my bride, as we were leaving dinner, a few BLM knuckle-Haids, were trying to intimidate folks as a prelude to their strong arm robbery main goals. One of them, looked at me and said, accusing me of Oedipal relations with my mother, “why don’ you give me yer money?” My reply was 8ndeed polite. “Because, I don’t have to give you anything at all.” I calmly replied. His response was “interesting”, “ I’m goin’ to f*** you up!” My response was still polite, “No, you aren’t, and we’ve got nothing worth you and your associates dying for.” I looked him 8n the eye, and was prepared to draw and shoot him, until one of his associates said, “Dude! He be strapped. He be lookin’ to shoot a brutha! “ After be8ng called a few more invectives, which were neither original nor hurtful, nor threatening, (my wife WAS laughing), they jogged off.  Made me realize that my Glock 26 NEEDS a BUG buddy in my off side pocket, so I can still be “old man”polite and have my hand wrapped around a nice J frame equivalent. It dawned on me, that as I am getting older, still early 60’s and not feeling “old”, some jackass might think I’m an easy target. I would like to be grey man, and still be ready to go all Ninja-Pops on some Richard-head if needed. So, I’m now shopping for a new “friend” in earnest. I never “thought” I could be construed as an easy mark, even now. Huh! Learned something.  Oh, I did have my hickory cane with me, so, that item might have chummed him in, since he wasn’t an obvious intellectual standout. That was unintentional on my part.(really)  Have to have better wits about me from now on.
    • ....so the barrel is longer by a bit....but the slide and frame aren't? So you can just install the "evil" original barrel?
