This week James continues our  camping basics series. The main topics covered are

Food, water and energy.

I talk about the different kinds of food to bring with you on a camping trip. How I will always bring fresh food for the first day. I usually bring steak or hamburgers frozen for the first day. After that I switch to either freeze dried meals or diy dehydrated ones.

Often I will bring salami and summer sausages. I like to get smaller ones that can be eaten in a single sitting. I not too worried about them going bad in a day or two but they taste best fresh.

I cover a few ways to purify water when camping. I talk about what works and what I don’t like. Boiling is my prefered method to make water safe to drink. Followed by tincture of iodine 2%. To be the filters are too expensive and have higher chances of breaking. Same thing goes for the steripen. Too many parts to get broken.

On energy I like to bring backup batteries with me. They make many decent rechargeable phone energy packs. I also covered the Solio solar charger and the power pot. Both work to keep your cell phone up and running to take pictures.

If I left out anything leave a comment down below. I’m excited to get outside and get camping soon!

How to Purify Water with Iodine for Survival

Today I have a guest post from the good people over at survivopedia. I think that iodine %2 tincture is great for water purification, better for you than bleach, and should be a survival prep you stock up on.

How to Purify Water with Iodine for Survival

Survivopedia Purifying water with iodine

Without a doubt, water should be your number one priority after personal safety in a survival situation. The problem, though, is that water sources may be contaminated. In order to ensure that your water is safe to drink, you’ll need to filter and purify it. There are a few different ways to do this, but today we’re going to tell you how to purify your water with iodine for survival.

First and foremost, you need to know that, even under ideal circumstances, you can only survive about 3 days without water. The time may be shorter or just a bit longer depending upon your physical condition.

If you feel thirsty, you’re already in the beginning stages of dehydration. Don’t wait any longer to start looking for a water source if you haven’t already stockpiled your own or located a safe source. That should be the first thing that you do as soon as you know that it’s safe to venture out.

Whatever you do, DO NOT succumb to your thirst and drink from any water source that you’re not positive is safe prior to purifying it; pathogens in water can quite literally kill you.
