Having a generator on hand is great in case your power goes out for an extended period of time.
Pretty much every winter out power goes out because of ice storms, we would be lost with out ours.
When it comes to prepping a generator is a double-edged sword.
On one side you have the power to keep warm, cook food and see at night.
But on the other side generators are very noisy.
People will know you have power and could try and take the generator away or even worse try to kill you for it.
See how to make your generator quiet.
Note: yes its a word! Look it up 😉
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.
