Instructables is a great website with loads of survival, homesteading and great DIY projects. I saw this over there and had to share with you. This is a great power generator from recycled old washing machine parts.
If you are lucky you could crawl craigslist and see if any one is giving one away or find a very cheap one. I think alternatively you could use any old car alternator too.
If you had the time, space and brains I think this would be a great addition to your off the grid needs. See the full instructable below. If you liked this post, maybe you will like some of our others, you can check some related articles below or search via categories on the right, be warned, you will be on here for hours. Enjoy 🙂
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.
