Rather being an activity that you do for a while, then forget, prepping for emergencies is an ongoing process. For example, three years ago I knew I needed a dependable generator if the grid ever goes down and went out and bought a Honda eu2000i; a gas thrifty workhorse with enough oomph to keep my freezers cold and some power for some lighting and comm gear. The next logical step was to buy some plastic gas cans and store some gasoline – 30 gallons worth. I did that, and for the past three years I have stored the fuel in this storage box in my back yard ( in a spot that is in perpetual shade).
Well, that system has served me well, but it’s now time to upgrade to safer, longer lasting Blitz metal gas storage cans ( pictured at the beginning of this post) which I intend to store in my garage (the wife did not want plastic gas cans in the garage – and I agreed with her).
Like I said, prepping is not something you do then forget about. It’s a ‘lifestyle’, if you’ll forgive that overused term. So, re examine and reevaluate your preps from time to time and make improvements as time and money warrant.
Be safe. Be Prepared.
