This is a great DIY project and would make a great addiction to anyone’s preps… If you are still confused as to what this does, it is really quite simple and clever.. It is a water pump that needs no energy input other than water flowing from a higher point to a lower point.
If SHTF and the power goes this will still work and pump water with no electricity. This is vital if you plan to stay put either at a bug out location or a temporary residence.
You can build this for around $100 and maybe less if you locate free PVC or parts off Craigslist. Check out the full article below and if you make one please post pictures on our Facebook page. We love to see what you guys and gals build.
Bonus: How to Make Pemmican, the Original Survival Food
Invented by the natives of North America pemmican was used by Indian scouts as well as early western explorers.
Native Americans spent a great deal of time on the go and depended on having portable, high-energy, highly nutritious, and filling foods that would last for long periods of time without refrigeration.
Pemmican is a portable, long-lasting, high-energy food. It's made of lean, dried meat that's crushed into powder and mixed with hot, rendered fat. This makes it one of the ultimate foods to have stockpiled for when SHTF or disaster strikes.
People really should avert their gaze from the modern survival thinking for just a bit and also look at how folks 150 years ago did it.
These guys were the last generation to practice basic things, for a living, that we call "survival skills" now.
