    before storing? Will this mess up the system. I want one only for emergencies. Also, someone I know had trouble priming it for the first time, the black filters that is. Has anyone found this problem? thanks

    I read something on the internet the other day, don't know if it was this site or not, that said you could get this type of container from your local grocery store. So the other day while shopping at Fry's (Kroeger) I went to the bakery and asked if the had any that hadn't been thrown out yet...

    I'm wondering which is better for storage large containers or smaller ones.. I see people using 1-gal and 5-gal containers fo bulk storage. I'm leaning toward the smaller containers for the simple reason that they can be used in smaller batches therefore not compromising the integrity of the...

    So, I am looking to land a job in downtown Chicago (yeah, I know, what the hell am I thinking?) I will be taking the train in from Aurora to Union Station, and walking from there. I am thinking of planting a Cache or two in case something along the lines of 9/11 happens. I am envisioning a...

    I'm trying to find some large storage containers. Something the size of a 100qt. cooler or larger. Water proof. Rubbermaid and similar totes are just too flimsy. Any suggestions?

    My job is constantly going through 5 gallon buckets of floor wax and floor stripper, and I've been collecting them (with lids). My question is, what are good uses for these? I don't want to put food in them obviously, but what else?

    I've been thinking about putting together a few small "kits" ie... food, ammo, etc... in a waterproof container, and burying it in an area that is fairly safe from development. For example, I live within 10 miles of a 1300 acre park that seems to be an ideal place. However, there's certainly...

    I was talking to a friend of my dads today and the topic of 2012 came up and I asked him on a lark if he was prepared for any kind of emergency. He said he wasn't and I asked if that worried him and he said no, he knew where to get supplies if he needed them. Further into the conversation he...

    I currently don't have much of anything stored in my attic. But, I am running out of room elsewhere in my house. So, I am looking to move things up to the attic that can deal with the temperatures. I'm thinking things like extra clothes, jackets, etc. Pretty much things that aren't perishable...

    Cant you get decent quality plastic "totes" over here anymore :( (Australia) Well I filled all my old "totes" (we just call them containers over here) up with stuff now (tools, food etc), went to get some more from the hardware store and there are just simply none that are made properly at...

    Ok guys and gals, my question is pretty simple, but I am complicating it sort of. When I think of storing goods and survival goodies in my house I think of having most of it in one or two spots set aside in my house for the sole purpose of storage. MY PROBLEM: I have two roomates who hate...

    Okay, so we all know that it is a good idea to prep and store items that may (or may not) be necessary in the future. This morning, I was cleaning out the garage (which should be called a storage area and not a garage) and I discovered that my tent had been chewed through by mice or rats (which...

    We came up with lots of uses for a shower curtain, so I thought maybe we could do the same with a bucket. Here's mine: store water, food, or preps transport food, water, preps, waste, etc turn upside down and cover plants to keep them from freezing cover and seal and bury preps poke holes in it...
