RE: The RVF worst-case-scenario survival/preparedness thread.
Yeah, I was also more thinking about what happens if for instance utilities break down, rather than a full-on war or something.

For instance what do you do if there is no more water coming out of the tap ?
I have wells on my terrain, but the lab said it was contaminated with fecal traces so I need a way to filter it. I'm open for recommendations by the way Smile
Some people I know told me that labs always said that to private customers, so that they don't drink water without paying taxes on it, but I'm not willing to find out whether that's true when I need it myself.

What do you do if there is no more electricity ?
First you need a heat source - I have a fireplace in the middle of my old peasant's house, it can heat the whole place so that's good.
Except you need to know how to start a fire (not easy with wood which is not totally dry), how to fell trees (did this once manually, was broken for a week afterwards), how to cook on said fire (all my pans have plastic handles), etc.

Then food, well yeah tincan stuff which you'd need to rotate.
But first know how to size up how much you need to stock I guess ?

Also I have fruit trees and vegetables in my garden so that's cool, but I have no clue how to store them without energy, for the moment I throw everything I don't eat now in the freezer.
Also I know nothing about tree maintenance, for the moment they just grow and give fruits and that's cool, but I guess that's something I would need to learn too.

In the end if you grew up on a farm you'll probably find all this hysterical Smile
But if you grew up with a useless (or none at all) father like me and I'm sure many others here, you've got some catching up to do !
