Get Pandemic Ready

#blogroll 2020-03-16 07:45:00


When someone asks me, “What are you prepping for?” my answer is that I don’t prep for one particular event because I’m an “all hazards” prepper. But I know what the real question is. “What do you think is the most likely serious “disaster” to occur?” To that, I answer without hesitation: Pandemic. While flu […]... Read More

(1862) — There are now less that two weeks left in for Round 87 of the SurvivalBlog non-fiction writing contest.  Please get your entries in soon!  Note that they must be at lest 1,500 words long.

COVID-19: My View From The Powerhouse

#blogroll 2020-03-16 07:04:58


I thought I’d give some insight on the COVID-19 impact from my perspective in the hydroelectric power industry.  As a journeyman hydro electrician, I’ll provide a “boots on the ground” tradesman’s point of view.  I’ll do my best to give a short- and medium-term interpretation of this event’s impacts insofar as keeping the lights on.  While not as prevalent throughout the entire country, hydroelectric projects (dams) are the major supplier of electricity for the bulk of those already in the Redoubt and BC.  While all the windmills along the Columbia produce more political “warm and fuzzies” than actual power, dams …

Economics & Investing For Preppers

#blogroll 2020-03-16 07:02:25


Here are the latest news items and commentary on current economics news, market trends, stocks, investing opportunities, and the precious metals markets. We also cover hedges, derivatives, and obscura. Most of these items are from the “tangibles heavy” contrarian perspective of SurvivalBlog’s Founder and Senior Editor, JWR. Today, we look at some big Forex moves. (See the Forex & Cryptos section.) Precious Metals: Gold futures log largest weekly loss in more than 8 years. Here is a snippet that confirms my observations: “It seems that investors have been selling gold in order to cover losses elsewhere,” said Caroline Bain, chief …

The Editors’ Quote of the Day:

#blogroll 2020-03-16 07:01:35


“So, 61% of Italian confirmed cases are requiring hospitalization. And, low-ball figures now are claiming at least 40% of the American population can be expected to contract it (I suspect it’s higher, because I suspect there’s a lot of as-yet unidentified cases floating around out there still). The American population is 331 million. 40% of that is 132.4 million. If 61% of those require hospitalization (and remember, we’re not even looking at the case fatality rate right now…just the number of cases in Italy-—a first world nation—-that require hospitalization), that’s 80.76 million hospital cases. That’s just below 25% of the …

Generators for Family Readiness – Part 2, by Greg X.

#blogroll 2020-03-15 07:03:37


(Continued from Part 1. This concludes the article.) Starting Electric starting is a nice feature. An electric starter motor spins the engine faster than pull starting increasing the probability that the engine starts. The starter keeps the engine spinning longer because a starter rope always runs out of length. My wife can push the start button and if your back is hurt “the button” still works. Gasoline engines are easier to pull-start than diesels. There are some small diesel engines with compression release that can be pull started, but it can be tough even for a 3-kW engine. We put …

But the court which is without the temple leave out, and measure it not; for it is given unto the Gentiles: and the holy city shall they tread under foot forty and two months.

Many of us own a generator. But how much research did you do before purchasing yours? Generator system integration into you home power design is frequently a series of tradeoffs. I’m going to cover how generators work, potential design features, trade-offs, and strategic considerations. I actually own four generators of various capacities, fuel types, and features, each for slightly different purposes. I also work doing generator fleet maintenance. Key Components I like to break generators down into an alternator, and engine, a DC control system, an AC control system, a fuel system and a cooling system. Generator sets are typically …

No TP? No problem! The Bidet: The unsung Hero of the Coronavirus Crisis

#blogroll 2020-03-13 20:16:00


Luxe Bidet Neo 120 - Self Cleaning Nozzle

You’ve seen them. The neckbeards hoarding all the TP like lunatics, just like they did with 22LR.
Any prepper knows that TP must be stockpiled. In theory, months...no! years of the stuff should be stored! TP is of course important for obvious reasons but there IS another way.
The bidet.

For those of us that grew up with these stupid things in every bathroom (the real bidet, a porcelain one similar to a toilet), it was just a place to leave your dirty clothes when you took a bath, like a porcelain laundry basket that everyone knew what it was for but no one in the house used. More of a tradition that the folks brought from the old world than anything else.

Initially rejected by Americans when the attempt to introduce it was first made, today many Americans love their bidets.

Greatic Bidet Attachments, EB8200 Ultra Slim Self Cleaning Nozzle Hot&Cold Fresh Water Non-Electric Mechanical Bidet
Like it or not, from a practical preparedness angle the thing does allow you to greatly minimize the use of TP while using very little water and, all jokes aside, it can be a big advantage during a long term crisis where TP is unavailable.

I included a couple affiliate links to the best-selling models in Amazon in case you want to give one a try or at least have one just in case you one day run out of TP.

Stay safe folks!
