Hi all,
I can’t say I’m extreme Prepper but I do practice disaster preparedness. I find that show on TV pretty interesting. The show gives me some ideas. Actually what I had begun to do is have enough for a natural disaster. I might survive a week or two maybe more depending. What I tried to do is build something around what I would need. I’m a disabled Veteran from Vietnam (67-68). I can’t go far because I only have a heart that is 53% functional and I have an ICD implant. Besides, without my meds it would be all over.
So I put in a small Solar Array (45W kit) hooked to a 12v deep cycle battery. I have a few DC to AC inverters just for some lights, and to run my nebulizer, and charge up rechargeable flashlight batteries, cell phone, run my laptop.
I also have a Ham Radio License and a 2 meter band handheld. I use an inverted V dipole on an old military antenna pole I got off of eBay. It keeps me in touch with what’s going on in severe weather. Many Ham groups help out in times of disaster, and anybody can listen in actually. I’m not an active Ham nor am I an electronics engineer.
My wife of 41 years is right on board with me right to the end.
I see a few areas on your website that I could contribute to.
The way I figure:
Better to be prepared for nothing, then unprepared for something.
