Oversized Emergency Blanket

An Emergency Zone Brand puncture resistant reflective blanket is a must for every emergency kit. This solar blanket reflects 80% of your body heat, conserving heat in an emergency situation. In addition, this blanket is 71 x 142 inches (most blankets are 52 x 84 inches). That's over twice the size of other reflective blankets, allowing 2 or even 3 people to share body heat. Survival experts recommend shared body heat to prevent hypothermia, but other blankets are just too small to wrap around more than one person. A single oversized reflective blanket is superior to two standard ones.

6 Hours of Heat

I walked through one of those huge stores where the shelves go up to the ceiling and I found chafing fuel that people use to keep food warm at parties. Since the stuff is supposedly safe, it seems like a great thing to have around in case of emergency. Warm up food or even cook some types of food in an affordable chafing dish or one of those #ad emergency cook stoves.

Sawyer Squeeze Water Filter System

I used to have LifeStraw on this page, but many people complain online that you have to suck too hard to get enough water. Squeezing dirty water through a filter into a clean bottle is easier and doesn't require hard sucking (or sucking of any kind). From what I've seen on the Internet, seems like people say that the Sawyer Squeeze is better than the Sawyer Micro Squeeze, so that's why I have it on this page.


Weighing just 3 ounces, the versatile, award-winning Sawyer Squeeze Filter is incredibly simple to use and fits in the palm of your hand. The durable, collapsible 32-ounce reusable squeeze pouch rolls up when empty, so it won't take up space in your pack or suitcase. Removes 99.99999% of all bacteria, such as salmonella, cholera, and E.coli and 99.9999% of all protozoa, such as giardia and cryptosporidium.


Whether hiking, camping, hunting, fishing, or traveling abroad, the Sawyer Squeeze All-in-One Water Filtration System will ensure you have access to clean water in the backcountry or anywhere in the world.

In Case You Didn't Know


B Vitamins = Good

Some people appear to have a mental illness because they have a vitamin B deficiency. For example, the wife of a guy I used to chat with online had severe mood swings which seemed to be caused by food allergies or intolerances. She would became irrational, obnoxious, throw tantrums, and generally act like she had a mental illness. The horrid behavior stopped after she started taking a vitamin B complex. I've been taking #ad Jarrow B-Right for many years. It makes me much easier to live with.



Soy = Bad

Unfermented soy is bad! “When she stopped eating soy, the mental problems went away.” Fermented soy doesn't bother me, but the various versions of unfermented soy (soy flour, soybean oil, and so on) that are used in all kinds of products these days causes a negative mental health reaction in me that a vitamin B complex can't tame. The sinister encroachment of soy has made the careful reading of ingredients a necessity.



Wheat = Bad

If you are overweight, have type II diabetes, or are worried about the condition of your heart, check out the videos by William Davis and Ivor Cummins. It seems that most people should avoid wheat, not just those who have a wheat allergy or celiac disease. Check out these books: #ad Undoctored, #ad Wheat Belly, and #ad Eat Rich, Live Long.



Negative Ions = Good

Negative ions are good for us. You might want to avoid positive ion generators and ozone generators. Whenever I need a new air cleaner (with negative ion generator), I buy it from A plain old air cleaner is better than nothing, but one that produces negative ions makes the air in a room fresher and easier for me to breathe. It also helps to brighten my mood.



Litterbugs = Bad

Never litter. Toss it in the trash or take it home. Do not throw it on the ground. Also remember that good people clean up after themselves at home, out in public, at a campsite and so on. Leave it better than you found it.



Climate Change Cash Grab = Bad

Seems like more people than ever finally care about water, land, and air pollution, but the climate change cash grab scam is designed to put more of your money into the bank accounts of greedy politicians. Those power-hungry schemers try to trick us with bad data and lies about overpopulation while pretending to be caring do-gooders. Trying to eliminate pollution is a good thing, but the carbon footprint of the average law-abiding human right now is actually making the planet greener instead of killing it.

Hýdrø╳ýçhlørøqúîñé = Good

Take a look at my page called The H Word and Beyond. You might also want to look at my page called Zinc and Quercetin. My sister and I started taking those two supplements near the end of 2020 in the hopes that they would scare away the flu and other viruses.
