Power Pot V Review: Off Grid Charging Power For Your Devices



I’m finally getting around to reviewing The Power Pot. I bought it from the PowerPot guys at a Nashville Prepper Expo last year or so. I could have knocked out a first impressions review. Instead, I decided to wait and really test it out. I don’t like to recommend things or bash them until I’m sure.  After going with me on several outings as well as some at hoe testing I’m ready to review the Power Pot. As I type I’m using it to charge a cellphone. The starting charge was 41% and I’ll end with what it gets to.

Hope For The New Generation



It’s Friday and I’m exhausted. I’ve been working the overnight shift at work all week and have one more day to go. I was thinking about what to write about and decided to finally write an article I’ve been kicking around for maybe a year.  The article is one on hope, a hard thing to find these day’s. So stick with me and I hope you catch some of mine today.

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.

Dehydrating Peppers

Today is a guest post from by oldset blogging friend DB from Florida Hilbilly with an article on dehydrating peppers. Thanks buddy and enjoy this one!

I like peppers, both sweet and hot. I have found a local green grocer, Rorabecks that sells a small sweet peppers that I like to put up for long term storage. And while they end up with a VERY long shelf life when put up this way, even this nine pound batch won’t last more than  a few months. But I’ll have peppers to use whenever I want without worrying about having to find some that are in season.
