  2. I have been converting my Promaster into a bug out van, and I have been really happy with the Goal Zero as a power source.
  3. I'm not sure how to make these smaller...sorry for the size. The goal here was to demonstrate that my Instant Pot runs off of my Goal Zero in my BOV.

  5. Ohhhhhh...Mt_Rider...Harvey was a doozy on our peninsula. No power for 21 days, sleeping in hammocks, cooking outside, and grateful for every bit of stored food and water! Our whole house had to be gutted. Wearing my firearm 24/7...all the expected issues. We learned a ton, overall lost little and were safe during evacuation with the pups. Our preps were spot on for the situation and we had friends and Cajun Navy to help remove trees, etc. We inherited an extended family and became great friends with some of those people from St. Tammany Parish. The main takeaway is that during an emergency it
  6. Hi, everyone! I've been out for a while. It's so great to see everyone continuing to Prep so hard. I'm excited to catch up on Mrs Survival! I'm on my way to work, but I will check in later. Jeanette
  7. If I haven't said it before, THANK YOU for posting recalls, Wormguy.
  8. I have been keeping a log of my purging adventures using the KonMari Method. I wish I had discovered this years ago. The premise behind it is to decide what to keep instead of what to throw away and only surround yourself by items that truly bring joy. Next, these items are ONLY tackled by category...not room by room, or a single drawer that day. In other words, when I decided to tackle clothes, shoes, accessories I went through the ENTIRE HOUSE, GARAGE, BUG OUT BAGS, VEHICLES...all of it, and dumped it all into the middle of my bed and went to work. I was shocked by the volume of stuff,
  9. Getting started on 1900 House today. Thanks!
  10. It looks like I have some holes in my preps!!! Dang it... Directions: --Fill in the blanks as they apply to your household as of today. --Assume LIGHTS OFF scenario. --Use piece of paper [or..just be careful - don't reveal ALL your secrets on the board] .....but we can discuss if you have comments/questions. ===============================================/==================== WATER A - 1 Barrel 2 Bathtubs 3 5 Gallon containers WATER B - 1 Berkey or homemade filter if necessary 2 Desalinator...tested in our bay and effective 3 Boiling as last resor
  11. We avoided ALL shopping this weekend, except for my Melaleuca order which is an automatic order each month online. That is the thing about being prepared...we never "need" anything, and Christmas presents will most likely be prep items for the family! LOL!!!

  13. Thanksgiving meal was Blackened Redfish, Fried Oysters, Fried Shrimp, and Cilantro Slaw. We still has pumpkin pie, of course! https://www.dropbox.com/s/eoldat52aail8zm/20151126_160907.jpg?dl=0
  14. Thanks, you guys!!! I "insisted" that DH not spend any cash on me this year because our preps are always a priority. However, I received a beautiful Blackthorne Staff from Ireland and some Python Straps for my DD Jungle Hammock. The staff is a perfect height for me to hold like a wizard and has a hook at the top to reach for stubborn persimmon high in a tree! It also shoots fire and lightening depending on my mood, so definitely a prep item!
  15. I understand your concern! That is something to think about while camping anywhere and even in a tent, but it has come up a bunch on the hammock forums because you are essentially a giant meat bag. I do keep my firearm and night vision in a pocket of my hammock right by my pillow since the hammock has 4 pockets for easy access while lying down. Also, it's important to scout your camp spot anyway to avoid hanging across animal trails or under "widow makers" (dead tree branches). So far the closest wildlife (that woke us) has been a curious raccoon and a skunk that walked right under DH
  16. Next weekend, 130 people are doing the Texas Hang in East Texas. Funny that you bumped this, Dogmom4, because I just got finished airing out my Jungle Hammock after re-applying Permethrin. I have used this hammock a TON ever since I bought it, and I will "never" go back to ground camping if I can help it!!! It's part of my Base Camp in my BOB/INCH bag and I don't leave town without it...ever. Also, it makes me miss CGA on this forum because she always knew everything about everything and walked the walk.
  17. Ha! Do you know that they are already on their 5th deck? I haven't finished the first one!
  18. I have Thrive Honey Crystals from Shelf Reliance and the first ingredient is Refinery Sugar (Refined cane sugar) and the 2nd and last ingredient is Honey. Essentially that reconstitutes into "honey sauce" and if I had paid attention to that ingredient list I probably would not have bought them. What can I say? I was caught up in the moment at a Saxet Gun Show!!! That said, it does have at least 25 year shelf life and less weight and easy pour/use. Here is my thought process these days...Why would I take beautiful local honey with an unlimited shelf life and medicinal properties and tur
  19. I did post a BOB video and some pics a while back. I haven't been able to search any of my old entries, however. Hopefully just a glitch. I have tweaked my BOB several times since then. I need to make a new video at some point.
  20. Well the ScotteVest arrived and it is spectacular! I cannot wait to wear it out. The lining and pockets are top notch. I decided to give up 4 possessions to donate instead of 2 because of the cost of the vest and versatility. I am going to try it out this weekend. DH and I will visit local graveyards in the rain on Halloween for a project he is doing about prominent citizens in our county during the Civil War.
  21. I recently ordered the Q.U.E.S.T. vest from ScotteVest. It should arrive today. I will let you know if I love it or not! 42 pockets...yes...42!!! http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/QUEST_Vest_Women.shtml http://www.scottevest.com/v3_store/QUEST_Vest_Women.shtml#pd_video Here is a video from one of my favorite YouTubers about the Travel Vest from ScotteVest, which is also available for women: https://youtu.be/x5D-8uBZBVI So the big deal for me is that as a travelling RN, I have to carry my nursing gear in a Maxpedition sling bag, but I don't want to keep personal it
  22. Thanks to all of you for the warm welcome back. We have still been prepping HARD around here. Lots of changes too. My dad was REALLY sick, and DH and I decided it was time to take the parents in and care for them as they age. I may write more on that in a private forum. DH and I also opened a new business and I am still working as an RN. I recently took a Bowfishing seminar, and self-defense class, and some more basic classes like Knot tying and Tying Flys. Right now #1 obsession is with 100% shelf stable meals. The pantry is looking great and we have really tweaked our purch
