Due to modern conveniences and the 24/7 culture "we" have become complacent and reliant on short-term food supplies. The average grocery store only carries a 3 day supply and must be constantly replenished. The average family (non-preppers) only keep approximately 3 days worth of food on hand.

Therefore, in the event of a SHTF event, society is 3 days (9 meals) away from anarchy. People will panic when their limited food runs out and there's nothing at the grocery store and no money to make purchases.

Hi--10 cotton balls soaked in alcohol burn 15 minutes...I timed them.
I keep them in a ziplok in my BOB and in my car in a 2 gallon bucket of firestarters, etc.

I put Vaseline on my cotton balls and packed them in a clean, old Rx bottle. That bottle is also in my BOB.

I just found this and it looks like some good info.

Have plenty of coffee filters, but never thought about alum. Thanks!

I'm planning on pre-filtering w/ coffee filters and a colander. Then running the water through my ceramic water filter (Great demo video at the bottom of the page.)
