The Intriguing Topic of “Storage”

The Intriguing Topic of “Storage”

Today as the Feds govern according to and by crises, smart people in the nation have been religiously storing life’s necessities, much like most intelligent life forms attempt to do including the squirrels in my yard. Even the Feds are storing massive quantities of essentials in their compounds and in multiple national and global seed vaults. Yep, we all know “its” coming.

Even our new-fangled paramilitary systems recommend we pack 72-hour kits (chuckle) and at times even recommend a month’s worth of food, water and medical supplies (chuckle). Equally, they have other interesting suggestions for the rabble such as:

Clear out your houses, scale down, get rid of your extras, and do not be a “hoarder” because hoarders are mentally ill.

Pack up all your seasonal things in large tubs and put them in your garages or in storage units. Better yet, rent a giant storage space and store a whole lot of your lives in such units, particularly since they can be seized via Executive Order 11005.

Pack up all your seasonal clothing in under-the-bed zip cases. Buy the under-the-bed shoes cases as well, and store your bedding in large tubs or zip boxes.

Vacuum-seal and freeze meat and pre-cooked recipes. They will last longer, but get rid of your freezers because they are not green devices and most do not connect to Smart Meters. Therefore, they can’t be remotely shut down. That is why your power companies offer to haul them away without charge.

Store all your “important” documents in one waterproof place and keep them in your 72-hour to-go kits.

Get rid of all your books and heavy possessions. Be green though completely electronic, monitored and automated, all of which requiring “necessarily skyrocketing” energy bills. Follow all instructions according to screens and live on a micro level (Third World) except for being electronically monitored and automated.

Store just enough to be relocated and to set up a micro-life where ordered. You might want to own tarps and tents. Oh…wait…the parks and wilderness areas are closed, but urban living is encouraged and green without actual green. Better take guns. Oh…wait…most cities are gun free zones. Maybe you will get to set up micro-life in a FEMA camp or camper or in a hostel dormitory or tent city where armed military personnel are provided for your protection.

Store most everything in waterproof plastic and have waterproof shoes. You may be walking to your relocation station. It has also been suggested that you store your micro-life kits in wheeled dumpsters. Don’t forget the tarps, bungee cords and blankets.

Store water, at least two gallons per person per day, including additional water for pets. However, and on the topic of pets, the reality is this: crises lessen the priority of pets. This should not be too difficult a concept to grasp when we pat ourselves on the backs for euthanizing animals in the billions on an annual basis. Should you get marching orders to a relocation station, trust me; you won’t be taking your pets.

Toilet paper, sanitation bags, personal supplies, etc., all in backpacks, also recommended by the Feds. Don’t, however, store firearms or ammo because you will probably be a terrorist and likely gunned down. Oh…wait…you can be gunned down without firearms, even when you are a woman with a one-year-old baby. Don’t worry though…that was only a drill.

In a nutshell, it is recommended that smart people store life’s necessities much like most in human history have done; today however, if you do, you are also a mentally ill hoarder and a potential terrorist. If you don’t, you are a fool and more vulnerable to danger and death and following orders, any and all orders, to attempt to survive. Therefore, I guess you have to decide how to perform this creepy dialectical dance. To store or not to store; that is the question. Being prepared has become a whole lot more complicated…and dangerous.

Advice? Store a lot, in multiple locations, and be prepared for multiple crises; any place, any time.

Winter supply considerations for cars

Most working people do not wear actual winter clothing. Consider having to walk five miles through snow or rain in pumps or wingtips or even most athletic shoes. Many people never wear boots, hats or proper gloves due to the short distances from parking lots to buildings. In an emergency situation, or in the event of a disabled or crashed car, winter demands preparedness:

Snow shovel

Blankets, sleeping bags, multiple sizes of pillows (couch and bed-size)

Good boots, wool socks, layering clothing, thermal work gloves and hats with ear flaps (fur hats are best) and hooded sweatshirts. Dollar store glovies and cute cheap socks won’t cut it. Neither will panty hose.

A whistle

Non-perishable food (nuts, raisins, protein bars, dry cereals, bagged juices) + two cases of bottled water (set juices and water in the house every night so they do not freeze). Set water cases on the floor of the back seat of the car.

An all-emergency radio + a lot of extra batteries or a hand-crank radio

Fill two metal coffee cans one-inch deep with sand or dirt. Place a four-inch tall, three or four-inch wide candle in the coffee can with a lighter or a large box of matches, and cover with the coffee can’s original plastic lid. Store these emergency candle heaters in your car, and remember to open windows a tad when candles are in use. You can also make a homemade rocket stove with a coffee can and a vegetable-sized can. You will need tin snips and an old fashioned bottle opener to make air vents. Find rocket stove plans on the Internet for use at a camp site (not in a car).

A large wide-mouth plastic jar with lid (portable toilet), like a mayonnaise jar; toilet paper and small plastic garbage bags.

Flares and emergency tie-on flags, extra motor oil and de-icer windshield fluid

Jumper cables

An all-purpose knife and scissors

A First Aid kit + one bottle of hydrogen peroxide

A hand axe, tent, cot, tarps, bungee cords, and fire starters if traveling through remote locations.

A small metal bucket or stainless steel bowl for snow/rain collection and hand towels.

Place all the above in a large plastic tub and store on the back seat rather than in the trunk, if possible, and always keep proper winter footwear in your car.
