Re: New Emergency Vehicle Bag

I have some ideas and I try and keep most of this stuff in our rig. a 6x8 tarp is useful - It could be used to keep snow from accumulating on your rig and add to visibility for rescue, a temp shelter if you needed to move, a rain shield while you make repairs, something to lay on while you work unde...

Re: New prep room AKA basement woes.

For the window AC unit, can you not drill a hole in the units frame/pan and attach a flexible hose, old garden hose, etc to route wherever you want? for a low tech solution, think simple, think solar. Perhaps a "beer can solar heater" could be just the thing you need to circulate warm dry air throug...

Re: sarin gas and water: is water forever contaminated ??

Wow, this is some great material to discuss with my brother tonight, who originally had the question. I figure the location where he is and even where I am are not very likely to get a direct attack via either airborne or direct liquid contamination. Also, with slight exposure, say wind shift from b...

sarin gas and water: is water forever contaminated ??

I have done some research and I can find lots of info (most of it repeating what the cdc says about sarin) but nothing specific on how long or if it is ever safe to use the water that may have come in contact with sarin. For example, you have a location with a pond at the bottom of the Hill. Sarin g...

Re: Vehicle Emergency Bag

Depending on where you live, Like in the southern part of the US, one can usually get away by putting water in your system until you get back to civilization or to a shop to put proper coolant in it. A big gulp cup works if you have a creek nearby, or what I do is keep a few of those half gallon app...

Re: Gray Water Cistern question.

I think you are looking at rain water harvesting. Rain water is pretty clean, might put some type of chlorine injection on the main cistern to keep bacteria and algae from growing while in storage. I mean you do get water in your eyes and mouth when showering. If you used this solely for car washing...

I figure with all the storms blowing across the US this is one of the best times to show the importance of a shelter and show that a shelter now days can have a "multi-use" feel to it so you don't feel like you just dumped a load of money on a concrete block in the ground.

Re: Diapers & the PAW
