  2. Food and water
    This is a topic I've not come across so far, and while it may not be the most exciting thing to consider, I believe it's worth having a plan for what to do with chilled and frozen food when the power goes out. I don't mean for just a couple of days - I mean the "big one". I was thinking about...

    Hey everyone, I've been searching and can't seem to find any how-to on how to build a small solar powered system to run/power somthing like a fridge/freezer. I feel like if SHTF one of my main priorities would be to be able to freeze meat (or keep my frozen meat/food frozen). Could domone...

    I'd like to get a freezer and put out in the garage and eying a Whirlpool EV160FXBQ upright. Any thoughts on this or similar model? How are the Whirlpool freezers overall?

    While I realize that freezers aren't the best for prepping since they won't stay on without power (although you can get them on to solar pretty easily), they are nonetheless one of the better methods for storing perishables long term. Besides ice cream (and ice), name the top 5 things you keep...

    Convert a chest freezer to a refrigerator An article with PDF files on how to convert a chest type freezer into a refrigerator. This is something I've been wanting to do as he claims the chest refrigerator supposedly only uses 100-200 watts a day as opposed to 1-2 kilowatts. That is if you...

    Has anyone come up with any idea on how to quiet a generator? When the power is off, it is obvious who has a generator and who does not just by sticking your head out the door. In a worse case scenario, I can hide it but I have yet to come up with some idea on taking care of the noise. I...
  8. DIY - Do It Yourself
    I am looking at getting a chest freezer. The tag on the back says it draws 1.7 amps. So running wattage would be 1.7x120 = 204 watts....right? The tag didn't say anything about starting amps. Does anyone have a guess about what the starting wattage would be so I can make sure I have an...

    I've like to find a deep freeze that will fit through a 24.5 inch door opening. I've looked online at various manufacturer dimensions, and see some with 22-24 inch depth, but I haven't seen overall dimensions. Can anyone recommend a freezer that will actually fit through my door?

    I have just been reading a long article about the grid. It is in dire need of replacement, and is also one of our biggest targets, both the terrorist and the sun. What will you do if it should go down ? Keep in mind, that a major portion of our daily lives would come to a screaching halt all...

    What does heirloom quality mean? Is there a way to get a 5-10 year storage life out of seeds? The ones I see in Walmart, lowes, etc like "Burpee" have a date of about a year on the package. I'd like to store seeds, and have an upright freezer if that's an option. But I need info on what I'm...

    The thread on the doomsday vault got me to thinking, I needed to take inventory of my seed stocks. I took my seed box out of the freezer, made a quick run through the box and put the box back in the freezer. Last weekend I counted my fertilizer, I have about 300 pounds of assorted fertilizer...
