Roughing it

Postby peppercorn » Fri Dec 08, 2017 9:11 am

I am not impressed by much, though those surviving in a car, truck or camper, with few resources and no wood heat do impress me. I stumbled across this, and it interested me because it appears she lives in roughly the Edmonton to Calgary area in her camper in urban areas..winter in Canada is serious business...give this woman a like just for the effort!! I am just to old to be that cold!!
If you watch it bump the speed up to 1.25 for about the first half then 1.5 for the last half

To be sure It’s fresh out! Worked outdoors in james bay for u years. -15-50 F was the norm experienced minus 70 and that was insane
Surviving in the winter is no joke. Find food and staying warm is the only thing on the mind.
For city dwellers, they need to understand how cold it can get when power goes out. Extended outage also means no water in the taps on the 10 th floor and no coking, stores open etc I hope people think of heat in their preps.

Closing off rooms with plastic tarps, sheets etc is good. Candles are easy to store and throw off heat as well as light. Maybe a small bedroom is good. If there’s only two of you, smash the exterior of a bathtub so you can place a candle under the part that retains water. This will help heat the bottom and sides of the tub and you can sleep in there covered with sleeping bag and blankets. You may also wish to look at building a similar rig with an elevated couch... close off sides with tarp and let in just enoug air to keep candle/s burning. Obviously, short candles in safe container so you do not ignite flammables.

In emergency situation, make sure you have fire extinguishers to quickly put out fire. ABC types so grease, electrical.. is taken care of. Fire extinguisher could also be used as a weapon if needed.

Happy New Years to all, safe travels and keep the good info coming.
