Prepared or pyro?

So hubby has been getting really into emergency preparedness for the last 2 years or so, especially lately (no, it has nothing to do with politics!). So he's been filling water bottles, asking me about our food storage, and today he began experiementing with emergency fuel. img_2297the general idea is you take a big can, fill it with a toilet paper roll sans cardboard, fill it with isopropyl alcohol (not sure the amount), and light her up. He and the boy roasted a marshmallow over it. Awesome!

  2. We've got a bunch of those cans with toilet paper in them and a whole bunch of bottles of the rubbing alcohol in our storage as well. It's probably more prepared to have them all ready to go, but they last longer if you don't put the alcohol on them until you use it.

  3. I should've put that, you don't store it with the alcohol in it. Good point!

  4. I like the anonmity of your blog - I can't do that though because I blog for my family to be able to see the girls. How dangerous do you think that is?

  5. Probably not very dangerous as long as you aren't posting incendiary things. Unless someone wants you dead. Then you're in trouble.
