One of the best solutions to a fallen water system is the hand drilled well. This process is surprisingly simple when you compare it to the freedom that you get from having access to your own water. If the water treatment plant is interrupted due to disaster you are suddenly beholden to whatever water you have stored. Beyond that you are desperate for water.
In this podcast you are going to hear from a man who is using pressurized air to drill wells. Its a very interesting interview. You will find that there are more options out there to getting your hands on that pristine underground water source. Do you have a well at home? What things do you use your well for on the homestead.

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.
