  1. Food and water
    I have access to my maternal grandmothers icebox that my father restored years ago. It is a solid oak, sheet metal lined piece. An internet search revealed very little in the way of sources for ice in southern NJ. Does anybody have any experience using an icebox? Since the winter here can be...

    When U.S. Immigration and Customers Enforcement agents arrived at a Nashville home Monday in an attempt to detain a man there, neighbors and activists gathered to support the man, who remained shuttered in a van with a child for hours before the agents left. And once the agents and police...

    OK, so it's March. My March rant... People that don't know how to drive in snow and ice. They won't go fast enough to have enough forward momentum to make it up a hill, end up skidding, getting stuck, hitting other vehicles, and making other drivers have to stop/slow down... then back down...

    Atlanta area motorists stuck 24 hours or more on ice covered roads with no emergency services. One woman even gave birth. I'll bet there are a lot people that will be buying some emergency gear for their vehicles after this...

    Hey all, i just got me a Dodge Dakota, 4X4 and have questions about chaining it up for winter. My deal is that i want to be able to get up and down some steeper roads in the CO mountains on snow and ice. I know i have to have chains to do this. Chains are a bit spendy and would like to get...
  7. DIY - Do It Yourself
    After searching for threads on refrigeration\refrigerators here, I am still in the place of depending on refrigeration more than I should. I read the article from the folks on the sail boat about living without refrigeration. For dollars saved on the electric, some independence gained, and the...

    I am wondering if anyone has any ideas on where/how to get ice to store in an ice house long-term after SHTF? I really want to have a way to store dairy products and to keep ice for drinks since I really love my iced tea and ice water. They only way I can think of would be if generators can...
  9. Urban Survival
    Anyways I know lots of people say just in general to have emergency phone numbers on hand. Anyways so I created myself a Emergency Numbers Business Card. One to keep in my wallet, and one to keep in my glove box. I keep the one in my wallet in case if a paramedic can't get to my phone because...

    Although the Northeast got the deep snow and national headlines; the Southwest got record breaking (but non national headline producing) low temperatures. Last I heard locally we'd set new record lows three days in a row. All along the Texas/Mexico border from El Paso/Juárez to Eagle...

    Plan for Setbacks So one of the troubles with living in the North is that it can get really cold up here, for months at a time. This season being one of our weirdest has brought us temps ranging from -38 to +4 Celsius (-36 to +39 Fahrenheit) in the same week! I like storing a little water in...

    So I originally wrote this for my own site (aksurvival.com) at this link but that doesn't get too much traffic, so thought I'd share here too. ----- The winters in the Fairbanks North Star Borough are long and cold. It's pretty well established that you have to be able to deal with them if...

    In some disasters (localized temporary PAW); Phema and the red Cross, and other NGOs get around to handing out bags of ice amongst other relief goodies. Other than in a pan demick, where it would be desirable to SIP, what could you do with this ice besides beer? Well watch this, you could...
  14. Disaster Preparedness General Discussion
    Hey guys, I was just wondering if anyone knew if ice-melting salt that people use i the winter to melt their walkways, driveways, etc. to make them safer, is safe for humans to eat. I think it may be a different chemical compound but I'm not sure if it makes any difference when you eat it...
