“Animals use streams and rivers as their toilets. And swimmers put germs in the water too—there’s a bit of feces in every butt crack,” Charles Gerba, an environmental microbiologist at the University of Arizona, said.
Chlorine or iodine tablets alone won’t eliminate Cryptosporidium or Giardia parasites. So invest in an MSR Sweet-Water Water Purifier System, which wipes out bacteria, parasites, and viruses and was a top-rated purifier in a U.S. military report. Bonus: It has an activated carbon core to improve taste.

“Keep the inlet and outlet hoses in separate bags to avoid cross contamination,” Gerba added.

When TEOTWAWKI (The End Of The World As We Know It) happens, there will be a lot of casualties.

For all those wannabes, this is a good litany of why they will be casualties too!

SURVIVAL: Texting tree with cells of three

Quick Emergency Prep Project: Build a Texting Tree
Posted on May 9, 2012 by aptprepper

*** begin quote ***

A few weeks ago, we posted a guest post on having a meeting place in times of emergency, which covered having multiple backup plans in place where your family can congregate. At the same time, when a disaster occurs, we would also want to reach out to loved ones to communicate our situation or inform them of our next move. In recent emergencies, it was widely observed that while land lines did not work, many people were able to use their cell phones to send text messages. For this reason it would be a good idea to organize your own texting tree. Much like the phone trees used by kids’ schools to keep parents informed, the texting tree would be used in times of emergency to keep family and friends informed.

This project is simple: all you need is your cell phone, contact list and a sheet of paper. You can either draw it out manually or build the tree using Word or Excel, in the same manner you would create an organization chart. It should only take about an hour at the most, except for the part about explaining how it works to your contacts.

*** end quote ***

IT would be a good idea to have your contacts be in a different geographic area.

For example, my three contacts are geographically diverse. 

And, I’ve asked them to contact three folks in region or who’d care. 

Laff!

Not that I’d be sad about being released for this “vale of tears”, but it’s against the rules to leave the game early.

SURVIVAL: Disabled cruise ship is a practice bug in

What to do if your cruise ship becomes disabled
By Paul Motter

Published March 15, 2013

*** begin quote ***

One approach is to pick a new ship or one that has just been refurbished. Some of these include Disney Fantasy and Carnival Breeze. Also coming soon are Norwegian’s Breakaway and Royal Caribbean’s Royal Princess.

*** end quote ***

I’d say “what should you have done BEFORE your ruse ship becomes disabled”!

You should have your “bug out” bag. 

OK, you may have had to leave the guns home. But everything else should be there. 

Plastic bags, duct tape, water, food.

Hunker down.

It’s a survival situation.

Retrovirus — isolate yourself; become a germophobe.

Stuck — collect supplies. 

It’s a bug in situation with guaranteed extraction within a week. 

Good practice?

Stay out of situations where your movement is restricted! 

Airplanes, boats, trains, buses!

The big key is always have a plan!

Like Ike said: “Plans are worthless; planning is everything!”

SURVIVAL: One risk that you can’t plan for

Do You Live in Sinkhole Territory?

U.S. Geological Survey

Sinkholes are common where the rock below the land surface is limestone, carbonate rock, salt beds, or rocks that can naturally be dissolved by ground water circulating through them. As the rock dissolves, spaces and caverns develop underground. Sinkholes are dramatic because the land usually stays intact for a while until the underground spaces just get too big. If there is not enough support for the land above the spaces then a sudden collapse of the land surface can occur. These collapses can be small, as this picture shows, or they can be huge and can occur where a house or road is on top.

This is scary stuff!

SURVIVAL: Sandy creates at least one

What Made Me Begin Preparing for TEOTWAWKI, by Elizabeth in the Northeast

In six months the oldest of my boys leaves for the Marine Corps, and told me that for the first time since he enlisted he’s no longer afraid of what will happen with me and his younger brothers. He’s actually okay with really leaving now, because in two short months I’ve managed to squirrel away enough supplies to take care of all of us, and instead of believing that the powers that be will take care of me and mine in an emergency, I’m being proactive in taking care of me and mine. If it happens, when it happens, this Mama is more than ready.
