Harvesting Rainwater Reality Check“Water, water, everywhere, And all the boards did shrink; Water, water, everywhere, Nor any drop to drink.” -Samuel Taylor Coleridge. As preppers, we all know how vital water is to survival. We have the filters, the chemicals, the storage barrels, and most of us have a storage plan for drinking water. What happens when you run out? Have you planned on resupply your water reserves? This episode of Reality Check we talk about harvesting and using rainwater. We cover some of the problems you have to think about like pollen, roofing grit, bird poop, paint, mold, and general dirt that is on your roof. The best materials to use as catchment surfaces like tin, concrete, shingles, Read more “Harvesting Rainwater Reality Check”

3-26-16 Bottled water production lineWater is everywhere, right? It’s a natural resource. As a smart prepper you know that water is one of those basic necessities you need to have stockpiled when SHTF. The most convenient way to stockpile water for a lot of preppers, especially those who urban dwellers, planning to bug in, is to stockpile lots of bottled water. In fact, you may have already made the switch from municipal tap water to bottled water. But is bottled water actually safe for your family?

Clean Water as a Barter Item

Clean Water as a Barter Item

Russ Michaud – www.homespunenvironmental.com

Everyone agrees that water is a must have essential at the top of the list for survival preparations. It is prudent to have a back up source of potable water in case of temporary infrastructure problems and natural disasters. Usually this is in the form of a case or two of bottled water stored away somewhere. For folks that are looking at the potential of longer term outages a small amount of bottled water will not be enough; some kind of water source and water purification system is needed. This paper goes one step further to describe using clean water as a barter item. In worst case situations, clean water could become more valuable than gold or silver…

There are two ways you can barter water. First would be to physically purify water and barter for other goods and services. This can be done but is a bit difficult due to the transportation issues. Read more “Clean Water as a Barter Item”

Desalination, Unlimited Water!

Desalination, Unlimited Water!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”

Desalination Port_Stanvac_Desalination_Plant_P1000725Last week we briefly discussed the article about Texas exploring abanding oil fields and drilling holes for fresh or brackish water. In that article there was talk of a proposed desalination plant. This is the reality of water levels in Texas.

When I opened the New York Times today I was absolutely astonished to see plans for a new desalination plant in China.
“BEIJING — A coastal desalination plant planned for east of Beijing could provide a large portion of the drinking water for the parched Chinese capital by 2019, the state news media quoted officials as saying on Tuesday. The reports indicated that the government and state enterprises were investing heavily in desalination projects to alleviate a dire water shortage in northern China.” Read more “Desalination, Unlimited Water!”

Preparedness, The Very Basics!

Preparedness, The Very Basics!
Host: James Walton “I Am Liberty”

To be honest I am a little burnt out by these ominous, Nostradamus, articles about the collapse will happen in two months, 10 months, 10 minutes. I have been put off a bit by certain prepper websites by the amount of this “shock” language. I need to take a step back and just enjoy prepping for what it is not the why so much and definitely not the what if.

PreparednessThat being said we are going to talk about how practical preparedness is and how necessary it is without the use of TEOTWAWKI. I think this winter has made a lot people, especially those below the Mason Dixon line look at things a little differently. There are core items every family should have access to and, this is very important, the more dependent you are on outside services them ore of these core items you should have. For instance all your food comes from the grocery store than you better have a comfortable amount of food storage at home if extreme weather makes travel impossible.

Water treatment and purification!

safe waterWater, water everywhere and nary a drop to drink!  Yup, you guessed it, this week on The Prepared Canadian we take a look at water treatment.  As a compliment to my presentation at the Ontario provincial prepper meetup in Huntsville this weekend, I thought I would give those who can’t be there a chance to hear about water treatment.  Possible contaminants are as easy as A B C D, and we’ll look at what treatment method works for each kind of contaminant, including radiological.
To top it all off, I have yet another fresh editorial this week, so don’t miss out!
