Designed as a lightweight alternative to the much heavier solar showers, the Simple Shower weighs in at under an ounce and is a great addition to the bug out bag where every ounce matters.
The Simple Shower is a little device that turns just about any one or two liter bottle into a shower. It fits most standard soda & water bottles, along with many collapsible bottles, including Source, Platypus, and Lifeline bottles.
I think this is a really clever design, just attach the Simple Shower to a water-filled bottle, turn it over and take a shower. The Simple Shower consists of three parts – a shower cap, a funnel, and an air tube. The funnel makes it easy to fill the bottles, while the cap and air tube are what make it feel like a real shower. As an added bonus, it is made in the USA from recycled materials and is BPA free.
The uses of the Simple Shower aren’t just limited to emergencies, though. It can be used by backpackers, campers, surfers and beachgoers, washing babies, washing pets, watering plants. The list goes on… check it out below.
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.
