Re: Escape Bin

If you want to pack plastic plates, utensils and soap, go ahead. I have all that in my teardrop and didn't want to add more. This bin is for food and "throw away" stuff for an emergency. I can also load this bin the car/teardrop for a camping trip.--helps in the rotation. No water purification table...

Re: Escape Bin

I like it. Is the container waterproof? It is for rain, but in a flood if the water gets as high as the lid it will get in. You could wrap in a garbage bag. I learned in Ike if your bin is light enough to float it's waterproof--I still have my Christmas wrapping paper :D But this bin is heavy and i...

Re: My PAW (ish) house. (work project)

JR, that trailer looks trashed! Do you think you could find anything else? We found an incredibly small trailer to live in while building our house for $2,000. We built the house ourselves on the weekend, just a small house 25 x 30. Took a year to make it move in. But it was well worth it. Sold the ...

I was camping in TX when I heard about the Arkansas campers. Pretty scary since we camped near rivers at every campground. The first campground was a state park that had been devastated by a flood earlier this year. We were the only ones in the park, we didn't know about the flood. The buildings wer...

Re: Oil rig explosion & fire near Venice, La.

BP has asked the media not to show pictures of suffering/dead animals, because it would just upset people. The media agrees because they don't want people to say, "Uhh, I'm not going to watch the news today because I just can't bare to see one more suffering animal." I even tried to get my husband t...

Re: Another water storage failure post

I have been using 2L soda bottles.

I've been rotating them out to water plants and the dogs.

My oldest bottle is dated 11/12/09---no leaking so far.

I stack them on their sides in upturned plastic crates stacked 3 high. This makes it easy to rotate, because there are only 9 bottles in each crate.

Re: Good Breed for a guard dog. Cant be Pitbull or dobermann

I have a Pug. They make great watch dogs, because they do not let you ignore them and even a bad ass will have to stop what they are doing to pet him.

Then as he stops to pet, my shelter dog will take him down! :D
