Prudent Prepping: Purple Panic Pack, part the 2nd

The dust has settled and the First 72 Hours have passed. Follow along as I build a long term plan via Prudent Prepping.

This post will be short on pictures and light on links, due to the way New! Improved! Blogger handles everything and I don't think it's legal to mail enough 80 proof Editor Medicine to have another post like last week's corrected and massaged for public view.

Purple Pack Update
As mentioned last week, I am making what I hope is my last ever GHB for a friend who doesn't have any experience planning how to build one. This is the pack I purchased, in purple since that is the favorite color of my friend. Both of our work schedules have been tight and out of sync, so very little has been done to fill the "Information Gap" as to why I want to add certain things to the pack. 

I want there to be understanding as to why I'm suggesting things, and also for there to be some time to actually look over, and possibly try out, what is being suggested. I want the "Why?" questions to change to "Aha!" statements. 

The only purchase I made for the Purple Pack this week was a 22 oz Iron Flask brand water bottle (also purple), since I know that it will fit into a standard cup holder. Iron Flash is a brand that I like and have used for over a year now

Recap and Takeaway
  • It doesn't matter how much you know unless they know how much you care. Great equipment without knowing why it's there or how to use it is useless.
  • 22oz Iron Flask: Purchased from Amazon for $21.95 with Prime.

  1. While I normally use a vacuum insulated bottle, I wouldn't put one in a GHB. You can't cook with it, as you could a single wall metal bottle. You sacrifice capacity for the insulation, and I'd rather have a bottle that held more. The double walls of the bottle also weigh more than a single wall.
    For all these reasons, I'd recommend a single wall aluminum or steel bottle from a company like Kleen Canteen or Sigg. I'm familiar with these two brands, but I assume there may be a more inexpensive choice.
