“Some are fun. Some are dangerous. And some may just be stupid,” says Scott, the owner of engineer775 Practical Preppers.
Says Scott, as he’s moving a 21′ water tank that gravity-fed a greenhouse for years. A tank he bought for $200.
As the tank rolls off the trailer onto his property, he wonders how to both prep and then use this tank:
Below is the J.J. Johnson’s of Reality Survival video review of the AquaGear® Radiological Water Filter.
He looks at both the pitcher filter and the filter straw.
Important: These filters are designed to be used with tap water: water that has been filtered of gross particles. They are not field pack filters … although I would carry the straw filter in my bug out kit.
Made in the USA and 100% BPA free, the AquaGear filters remove gross beta particles; they don’t make completely irradiated water safe.
Maybe these should passed out to the residents of Flint, MI and paid for by the politicians and bureaucrats who authorized and oversaw that mess. Just sayin’.
In the video below, Canadian Prepper gives a shout-out to five other YouTube channels that should interest anyone involved in prepping, survival, bushcraft, and firearms.
If you haven’t already, you should subscribe to all six (including Canadian Prepper).
Start by thinking: When are you and your family most vulnerable to an “everyday” emergency? When are you not carrying your EDC? The obvious answer is at nighttime when you’re asleep.
So, do you have a readily available, middle of the night, grab and go at a moments notice, “bug out bag”?
Chris Tanner of Prepared Mind 101 calls this kit the Practical Bug Out Bag for the “night side” of EDC. Each evening he packs his gym bag with the next day’s workout clothes and his EDC tools.
He keeps the duffel bag by his bed for a prepared and quick “gotta-get-out-of-the-house-right-now” situation.
In the morning he transfers his EDC items to his belt and pockets and heads off to the gym.
