You need to make these 5 gallon bucket emergency kits… Simple and cheap to make and more valuable than you would ever imagine. I have 3, one in my car one in my basement and one at my bug out location.
When I first saw this I said to myself “huh, why would I need to do this if I have a bug out bag” then I read the article and now I will be making a few of these. Not only are the buckets cheap to buy, sometimes even free from restaurants, these are water proof and can be painted so you could use them as caches.
I would make these kits to go in both of my vehicles and for family members who may be around if SHTF. The article shows you how to pack it and what you may want to place in it.
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.
