YouTube Video and a few thoughts on water…….

“Water, water everywhere – not a drop to drink.”

That is a famous saying and when it comes to preparedness, water is certainly on the top 5 list for most of us when it comes to our preps. The thing is – I think most of us tend to “underplan” our water contingencies.

Guest Post: How much water is enough?

by Tom Sciacca

Guest Post: SteriPEN Review


by C.D.

I received the STERIpen® Sidewinder the other day from Ready Made Resources and I promised Rourke a review very soon, right after I tested it.

To be honest I didn’t know a lot about UV sterilization other than the SODIS method that I have tried before with success. Frankly I was a bit skeptical of a 90 second exposure to UV being safe for drinking. If you are not familiar
