Good idea, but very inconvenient...no simple place to put the removable piece in between opening and closing the door, and bending down all the time is not an option for a lot of elderly folks.  Still have some major improvements to make, IMO

Have you ever wondered just how you would shower in a long term power outage? 

Having a few of these on hand is must for just that concern. Why only the 2.5 gallon you may ask? The answer to that is simple. 

The weight of one gallon of water is heavy on its own and you have to lift this up high. Take it from lesson learned by this mom of 3. The 5 gallon shower is near impossible to lift that high with ease. It took myself and my strong husband to lift it high enough. He lifted as I supported and made sure we didn't poke it into something. The 5 gallon won't work in the shower tents, it is too heavy. In addition, do you really want your family members to use a full 5 gallons of your water storage for one shower? It would be very easy for that to happen with the larger 5 gallon size. For these reasons, this household has now added more of the 2.5 gallon showers. 

Having the smaller solar showers allows for more conservative use of water. As well as it is much easier to lift up high enough to be able to shower with. 

Keep in mind these pack down well for in your gear bags. You don't have to just use them for showers. Many times while camping these are used to heat water to do dishes, wash hands and so on.

Now, one word of advice, be sure you bring along wash cloths as you want to conserve as much water as possible. Also, don't soap up like you would at home, this isn't your home shower. Too much soap equals a lot of extra water usage. 

Having camped primitive with 3 children, 2 adults and 2 dogs, this mom was ever so thankful to have these showers. As a busy mom while camping, the max one could go without showering was 2 full days. By day 3, this mom wanted the grime off the body. (J)

This sounds like something that one might hear about in a Mexican prison...and yet it's happening right here in the U.S.! 

New Albany, Indiana: The Floyd County Sheriff's Department is being sued by a woman who was forcibly stripped and left in a jail cell filled with pepper-spray for 7 hours--FOR A MISDEMEANOR CRIME CHARGE--NOT a conviction! It was recorded on video. There are claims that this is a routine procedure for women taken to the jail. A second woman was stripped on the same day, as shown in another video. 

How do you PREPARE against something like this? You maintain decorum in public. You actively campaign for good sheriffs and good men and women in trusted political positions of power. You get INFORMED of your rights so that you can confidently, though peacefully assert power and competence against mindless LEOs. Etc. Etc.

+meck3 If you go to our website, preparednesspro.com you can put in "canning bacon" or "canning chicken" in the search bar and you'll get detailed instructions on how to can bacon and chicken with lots of pictures. Good luck! Let me know how it goes!

+loopev The reason why glass top stoves are disclosed as a "no no" is because the first (and some 2nd) generation of production could not maintain the heat and thus the pressure properly. If you've got a flat top stove though from the last decade, you should be just fine and dandy.

+Myra Richins, the older Presto canners are actually awesome. They were still made very, very well. I'd take an old Presto any day

Yay! This is EXACTLY what I was looking for. I've had the older Bosch for more than a decade, but I saw a demonstration several years ago that they came out with a new one, but I promised myself that I wouldn't buy the new one until the old one broke. I've let my old one jump off of the counter and it STILL worked!  But I've been coveting the new one with some of the features I remembered, and my SIL was willing to purchase my old one so Yippee! I get to buy the new one now except that I couldn't recall all of the reasons why I wanted a new one when my old one was still working, and YOU gave me exactly what I was looking for--comparing them side-by-side. So thank you!!

Here is a great list of items to review to determine what you may already have, as well as what items you may want to work on adding to your preparedness supplies. (s)
You may think that my top 7 handy dandy preparedness "tools" are an unusual list for emergency preparedness supplies, but I’m quite certain that you will find them invaluable under the right set of circumstances.  I love discovering and using items that serve a dual-purpose, especially when those purposes are compounded substantially.  If I have something in storage, chances are it serves more than one purpose. Whether it be medical supplies, see...

Are we the most over-drugged nation in the world? Prescriptions have risen by 300% since 1999.

District Attorneys in Santa Clara and Orange Counties are suing pharmaceutical companies for aggressively marketing highly addictive drugs without medical justification. Chicago is also suing, alleging a 20-year conspiracy by drug companies for targeting returning veterans and using front groups to publish biased reports in favor of their drugs.

What's YOUR countermove to this problem?
