What If The SHTF While You’re On Vacation?

July 20, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


You are enjoying a well deserved vacation when the worst happens – SHTF!

Not just a small localized disaster, but a true SHTF event.

It’s been in the back of your mind (since you’re a prepper) the ‘what-if’ thought.
What if you were on vacation when ‘it’ happens? The shite hits the fan.

What will you do?

Bleach-Water Ratio For Drinking Water

Bleach - Water Ratio

If your water source is uncertain, you should treat it first before drinking it.

One way to treat water for drinking is to add a small amount of regular bleach (chlorine). Here’s how much bleach to add, and a way to remember the quantity:

Water From Source To Home After The SHTF

July 18, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


It has happened; it has hit the fan. The power is out – the grid is down – the blackout has been ongoing for weeks with no end in sight. The water pressure in your home has stopped and there’s nothing coming out of the faucet.

The toilets won’t flush and you’re in deep shit (pun intended)…

Now what?

Medicine in Your Bug Out Bag or First Aid Kit

July 17, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

Someone recently said,

“I found myself in a situation to use my (Bug-Out-Bag RX) for a few days, and they (RX) had lost their potency.”

When I checked with my pharmacist she said, ‘Never leave blood pressure pills or heart/nerve pills in a hot car as the heat will nullify the effect within just a few hours’.

“If I did it, someone else might…”

WATER Sources and Treatment

July 15, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin

Water Sources and Treatment

WATER is a survival priority. In fact, generally we cannot survive much longer than 3 days without it. A very small number of people have been known to survive for up to a week without water under special circumstances, but this has been a rare exception.

Knowing this, one would think that WATER is a top priority for most preppers. Unfortunately, it often is not. It is often overlooked because most of us have such ready access to it nearly everywhere we go. It comes out of our faucet, we can buy it in stores, it’s in lakes, rivers and streams, and it rains (in most places)…

Stop to think about it though, because there are situations where your access to fresh clean drinking water could diminish or disappear. Here are a few notes about sources of water and treatment of water:

Fish Antibiotics For Preparedness

July 14, 2014, by Ken Jorgustin


Among the many articles I’ve read regarding fish antibiotics being the same thing as those prescribed for us humans, I recall one written on in which a doctor (who is apparently into prepping) ordered a variety of fish antibiotics for his preps – and to discover if indeed they were the same thing which he would otherwise prescribe to patients.

When the bottles arrived, I dug out my photographic drug reference and found that these are indeed the same pills that are given to humans, right down to the tablet color and markings.

It makes business sense. It costs less for drug manufacturers to have one production line for each drug, rather than to build a separate process exclusively for veterinary medicines.

These are the same generic antibiotics that can be found on many pharmacy formularies.
