A few years back, I took it upon myself to write a practical survival guide for my children, but once I read it again today, much of it is too personal to reprint here. I was asked to bring forth the relevant information by James and several members, so I shall post this as an online guide for those of you that despise hunting all over the web.

 

Please understand that I do live in the country, so may things may not apply if you live in an Apartment building unless you get the owner's approval. I apologize but I cannot tailor make this for everyone, so I will split this into categories and separate subjects.

 

# 1 MOST IMPORTANT IS SECURING A WATER SOURCE.

It does not matter if it is well water, city water, or pond water. This will only count towards how long your 5 gallon water filter will hold out. If you do not have access to a secure water source then start collection of it now.

Many styles available on this page.

 

Next, since I am such a cheapskate, we need to build a low cost, high volume water filter. This page shows you how, and anyone can do it.

# 2 FOOD

 

For those in the City, then dehydrated foods have come a long way in texture and taste, you can find these foods here:

To add to the above subject regarding Dehydrated Foods and reviewing how they taste and how long they can last.

At one of these companies, i can guarantee you will find something to fit all budgets. Remember if you only get one # 10 can of Great Northern Beans, then you have two weeks of usable protein for two people, depending on your appetite. One of these every paycheck is just that much further along in your food independence. Walton Feed and The Internet Grocer.

 

Next up will be on how to can meats, where to buy grassfed  beef. I do not know what the limit is before this page cuts me of......
