Looking for other preppers some close, like an hour or so, from Danbury CT in the hopes of having a reliable community based on individuals values and virtues

  1. Hi…I’m in Torrington living in a condo…..huge mistake….no way to farm except growing wheatgrass (check it out—excellent food/juice staple…so having a manual juicer is a must) indoors…..I have some provisions stored and it’s a work in progress….When I’m asked about prepping and a SHTF scenario I assume no electricity….So for me, it’s having good clean water, a portable distiller with a back up gravity fed unit, like a Doulton Big Berky…Besides, drinking/cooking, we need water to bath and clean clothes and growing anything inside, collect rain water for that (as long as it’s clean)…..Currently, I’m looking for a restaurant supply outlet to pick up a couple of 30-60 gallon stainless steel stock pots. With those pots you should always have 1 or 2 of them on a fire….either boiling them for sanitary issues or cooking/bathing/cleaning…You must have the cleanest purest water….in a SHTF situation the last thing you want to need is medical attention. You should know some medical basics i.e. stitching/setting bones….but for me it’s all in prevention. I’m not into having that many meds handy…mainly vitamins/herbs…bandages…H2O2….Ethyl alcohol…wound cleaners/disinfectants kind of things…Even having a few 5 gal clean buckets…for possibly growing some veggies….and poking a few holes on the bottom and hanging one over the shower…there’s another reason having water always boiling…..also…..assuming no toilets….most butts fit perfectly onto a 5 gal bucket…so line the bucket with a trash bag….to be placed into one of those 3mm thicker lawn bags as storage for the smaller trash bags you collect then bury them……IMO there should always be a keeper of the water and fire going……Next we’ll discuss…Fire….Food…..Protection…etc……Take Care For Now….Bo

    • Yeah I got every thing I need for a water still and 2 60 gallons
      Most important thing is food production in my opinion, water is easy in the north east.

  2. I’m at the mercy of the city of Torrington….if no power…taps are useless..no water….The growing of food…the preparing of food…the soaking of beans….the mixing of prepared protein powders…veggie mixes….personnel hygiene….washing of clothing etc… without clean water is a death sentence..I can gather water from any source and making it potable…..Step 1………..Step 2….For me….I’m thinking worst case scenario..no POWER…..you think about that for awhile…..what the repercussions to that are….I have a fireplace…so the wood I do have and the wood I can gather (on the edge of ST Land)..is endless…so with a fireplace I can cook…I have light…and heat…..I believe in storing foods that I already eat…with a water fast 1x/week to prepare the body for deprivation modes…..I have a dozen ways to make fire…with a recipe for a 48 hour campfire….if needed…Stored candles, batteries….2 way radios and I’m considering a SAT phone in the event cell towers are down and cell phones rendered useless…I have a few friends within my calling area if needed….crank emergency radios along with solar phone charges and a Biolite stove (turning heat into electrical with a usb port)..I have vacuum sealed (electric and non electric) stores of Brown rice…millet….quinoa/pasta as grains..along with every bean/legume you can imagine…which can be sprouted as well….I have non GMO and minimal salted veggie mixes…tomato, onion powders to mix along with freeze dried dehydrated vegetables and meats (beef/chicken)…cans of salmon..tuna…chicken with 25 year shelve lives…..I also have firearms/ammo to hunt/protection…and fishing gear…..I have all the clothing I need to survive any temperatures….You’ll need supplies of KI (potassium iodide) to protect the thyroid in the event of radiation Ifirst endocrine gland to be susceptable to C)….especially from Indian Point (in NY) if ever goes/sabotaged it will blow eastwood…that’s us…….but as my Christian brothers believe…none of this will be necessary if there is a Rapture….just trying to cover every base…especially the spiritual side of existance…If I had the resoruces I’d build a bunker 4 stories below the earth with thermo heat..and spring fed H2O )……….A neighbor to assist in the event..or even a community (if you have the acreage) would be great….but…….Take Care and Good Luck…..
