“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. We will go out and spend literally thousands of dollars on firearms, magazines, scopes, red dots, and ammunition – and then go buy a few cases of water along with a backpacking water filter.
Why do many of us do this? Lets lay the cards out on the table and admit it – weapons are “sexy” and manly. We look at an AK-47, AR – or beautiful 1911 and physiology takes over and we envision ourselves saving the damsel in distress and being the hero. Not everyone mind you – but many of us think this way. It’s natural. I mean – would you had rather have an 83′ Ford Escort in high school – or an 83′ Corvette? It’s how we are built (men – I am talking to you. Ladies – I’ve spent 43 years trying to figure you ou- so far I am still in a state of total confusion).
So I am bringing this up to hopefully make all of us a little more aware of our supplies and the decisions we make. Did I need to go buy another AR- or were there many things that should have really been a priority to my preparedness system? No – I probably should not have bought the AR.
So, back to water. I have a Berkey from Directive21.com and love it. It is a great water filter and with a little saving it can be bought by most anyone. I highly recommend them. When we are talking about a long term SHTF/WROL situation – I am looking at another system as well. It is called the Air Mobile Rescuer. This thing is the Rolls Royce of water purification (not just filtering). It is not cheap – but neither is a Bushmaster CAR-15, 20 30-rd magazines, and 2500 rounds of ammunition. Providing water for my family, friends and their families for extended periods – I am looking at possibly incorporating the Air Mobile Rescuer as part of my preparedness system.
Check out the video below on the Air Mobile – which is providing absolute clean water to desperate people all over the world – right this minute.
Something to think about.
