The Clueless Prepper – WaterCrazy Driver, · Categories: Uncategorized
So, my preparation for the apocalypse…or your standard power outage…continues. This is one of the few prepping steps that I had actually started a couple of years ago. They say you should have a gallon of water per person per day for emergencies. Or is that a quart? Or is that a liter? I can’t remember. It doesn’t matter. I have enough to cover a 3-day emergency, which I believe is the amount of days that is recommended for basic emergency preparation.
Anyway, for a couple years I have had a shelf in the garage dedicated to cases of bottled water. I probably have about ten cases of them at the moment. The water isn’t just for emergencies. It’s also for normal consumption. On each case, I write the purchase date with a marker. So, when I pull out a new bottle to drink, I pull it out of the oldest case. That way, the water supply always remains fresh. When I’m done with a case, it’s time to pick up a new one the next time I go to the store. Simple as that.
It just so happens that I was running low on water when I started this blog. So, last week I picked up six new cases of water. So, now I’m restocked and at the very least, know that I will be hydrated during the next emergency.
