SurvivalLife.com is the growing blog and information site devoted to preparing, leading, and protecting people from the harshness of a major emergency or disaster. They have published their latest Digital Newsletter, and it features three significantly important articles focused on helping people be better prepared for anything.
The main article was written by Managing Editor and lead blogger ‘Above Average’ Joe, who uses his experience with food storage preparations to share advice with readers. One major factor that affects food storage, says Joe, is the amount of space.
“The trouble is, in order to have enough food and water to withstand a prolonged disaster you need a ton of space and the ability to organize that space to still be completely functional,” wrote Joe in the article.
The Survival Tip of the Day article claims that having no fuel in a survival situation doesn’t have to mean no fire.
“Even if your Zippo is bone dry, don’t just toss it aside and hunker down for a cold night in the dark. As long as the flint still produces a good spark you have a chance at fire,” said the article.
The cotton batting inside Zippo-style lighters can be useful as a fire starter, because it has been kept dry and may even still have some lighter fluid soaked in. Joe wrote that the cotton needs to be removed and fluffed, then “simply place it near the flint wheel and give it a good showering of sparks. With any luck you should have a good start to a roaring fire.”
The Practical Prepper Newsletter section includes details on what Joe calls “possibly the worst thing I have ever bought.” A portable solar panel array was the topic of the review, but according to Joe, the cons far outweighed the pros, especially considering the outcome of the first test.
“As a warning, do not, I repeat, do not purchase this one,” wrote Joe. “I am still looking for a small scale solar kit that I can use to power small electronics, charge a cell phone, or even trickle charge a vehicle with.”
