Here in the southeast the winters are not so harsh that MAJOR tasks need to be done to get ready. I really do not have to worry about massive snow or ice storms. Seems every decade or so we get dumped on – but it’s pretty rare and doesn’t last long. The weather is starting to cool and I can just smell Fall in the air. So – time to pick up a few things.
I have two Mr. Heater Buddy portable propane heaters. I have a decent stockpile of the small propane canisters the Heater Buddy’s use – but want to add to my reserves. We have plenty of blankets and comforters. I want to add one or two kerosene heaters along with several 2 and 5 gallon containers for fuel.
The fuel-based heaters are great but still looking to add something else. That something is an old military tent stove – or something like it. I want to be able to heat an area in the bottom floor of my house with wood. No – I do not have a wood burning stove however looking for something expedient in nature and a tent stove would work.
What kind of winter preps do you do?
