  • What Should I Store For A Pandemic?

    Pandemics are a special breed of emergency, as we all now are well aware. But planning adequate food and supply storage isn’t as hard as you think, and can happen without leaving the grocery shelves bare of essentials that everyone needs.

  • Dinner For Backpacking Adventures

    If you’ve ever prepared your own pack for a backpacking trip, you’re familiar with the Tetris-level difficulty of getting all the exact right bits of clothing, gear, and food in all the exact right spots so there is nothing important getting smashed, all the frequently used items are easy to reach, and all the weight is distributed evenly so you’re comfortable for the trip and don’t tip backward off the trail.

    Getting an answer to the question, “How long can you survive without water?” is a little more complicated than you might think. But there is no direct, all-encompassing answer because all of our bodies and circumstances are so unique. Some people have generalized that a human can go 48 hours without water, or even up to 72.
