alright, blue camping water jugs - I have 2 kicking around in the shed (only 1 bpa free), but neither one has the little air-vent hole plug anymore. Is it possible to buy them anywhere?

or what could I make them out of?

BetterSafe,
Squirt gun plug maybe? or you could just make one out of wood and put a screw in the end to hold a string that you could tie to the handle so you dont loose it, hope this helps.

Growing up in the Yukon, it was mandatory to keep the faucets dripping all winter since no amount of wall insulation will really help when the temp is -40 degrees for weeks on end even if the house is well heated. And, yes, always keep the cupboard doors open in bathrooms and kitchens in winter. Most Rv'ers and mobile home owners learn early that that is a good idea. Tried to teach these simple tricks to my southern husband but he never quite got the hang of it - hence we had several frozen pipe incidents even way down in North Carolina (while I was away).

As for cleanliness/hygiene under low or no water circumstances, I always keep on hand both a camp shower around (can even be heated in winter, though it will take time, if you wrap it in foil and lay it outside on a sunny day or have a solar oven to lay it in - or you could, of course, heat water on the stove and fill it) and at least one big package of those large wipes that are used to 'bathe' disabled and senior adults when they cannot be moved to a bath or shower. Squirt bottles work too as was mentioned above by WildernessReturn.

I may have to start a new post. "Two weeks without internet" The storm that followed the freeze took out my internet. Crews cant make it to me. Once again, the solar system, or atleast the batteries, came through. I have no idea if the power went out. Ive been forced to relearn the rules to cribbage
I have a Tactical Harness and I have a Tool Belt. The Tool Belt is more Useful.

"Antifungal cream...and lots. I hear vinegar works but have never tried it. Vinigar on an open rash would painfull though. Same goes for the ladies. Vinegar douches is not just what I call some members of this site. Same important item to have is urinary tract infection cures. That something that could kill the ladies and make my life very lonely and short."

A really good cream to keep on hand is Desitin diaper rash in a tube. It's made with fish oil and zinc cream. Disadvantages are it stains underclothing and is pretty smelly; the advantage is that it works on body candida - the kind that grow under the breasts or a belly flap (if you have one you know what I'm talking about). It really spells relieve for people who live with candida over growth.

Fantastic thread, C5! Very practical information. Thanks for starting it.
