Emergency Water Storage Tanks

You can never have enough Water. When things get bad Water is going to be worth more than gold. It just takes a single natural disaster or ruptured water main to leave you high and dry. You could be living for weeks on whatever you have stockpiled. Being hungry might suck, but you can live weeks or even months with minimal caloric intake, but if you don’t have Water you are going to die in a few days.

How do you prepare? You get these Emergency Water Storage Tanks and fill them up. The bigger your family, the more Water your going to want to have safely stored. Be prepared. Rotate your water supply and make sure you use the correct water treatments to keep the water fresh and drinkable.

If you watch the news you hear about counties and cities with undrinkable water because of water main breaks and contamination. Being without water for days or weeks is bad enough. Now imagine a disaster has wiped out the water treatment plants and you may never be able to turn your tap on again.

How would you survive in the short term? You need to keep at least one of these Water Tanks per family member to be safe. That gives you six months from the start of the disaster to pray for rain or find another source of water.

Drilling And Driving Kit

What I like about this 100 Piece Drilling And Driving Kit is that it has everything I need in one Kit . No matter what size hole I need to drill, this Kit has has what I need. No matter what screw I need to turn, this 100 Piece Kit has what I need to get the job done. My biggest challenge is to always put back what I took out – so I know where it is the next time I need it. At one point I think I had three of these kits because I kept losing the four pieces I most used. Since then I’ve learned my lesson and as soon as I’m done I put the part back.

I keep one of these Kits in my garage and another at my bolt hole. Once the disaster hits it is too late to make sure you have the tools you need! Make sure you plan ahead and have the gear you need to survive! 

Drilling And Driving Kit Scoring

This Drilling And Driving Kit can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 178/1000.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • Drilling bits for use on metal, wood, plastic and masonry.
  • Power bits and insert bits to fill all your driving needs.
  • Driving bits: Phillips, flat and torx.

Cooking Tripod

This Cooking Tripod is the perfect way to cook over your fire! I love it for several reasons. Firstly, I can boil lots of water quickly. When your water source is questionable this is the perfect way to boil lots of water. Secondly I can prep meals in the morning and use my fire as a slow cooker all day long so that when I get back to camp everyone has a nice hot meal. Lastly, who wants to be inside near a hot stove when you could be outside where at least there might be a breeze?

It is also super portable, meaning you can set up camp anywhere, anytime. You can grill, bake, or deep fry whenever your crew gets hungry. It’s hard to find off the undead when you’re weak from hunger.

Cooking Tripod Scoring

This Cooking Tripod can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 275/1000. Why does it score better than the Folding Campfire Grill? The primary reason is that the Campfire Grill only lets you build a small fire under it. That is perfect for smaller groups, but when I have twenty people in camp I like to be able to make large pots of stew and other bulk meals. This Cooking Tripod let’s me use much larger pots over the fire!

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • 50 inch tall steel tripod
  • Tripod features three legs and an adjustable chain with pot hook

Polarized Sunglasses

I was out on a hike recently, walking around the lake before everyone woke up. It was beautiful and quiet. As the sun came up over the trees I found myself walking into the sun, which had two effects on me. The first is that I was squinting because I didn’t have my Polarized Sunglasses, and the second was that I almost walked right up on a momma dear and her fawns. Lucky for me she noticed me and bolted away from me, versus into my chest.

Of course this could have been much worst. If it was a bear, or a zombie, I might not have been so lucky.

If you are lucky enough to not need glasses then these Sunglasses are perfect. Otherwise, I highly recommend getting prescription Sunglasses. When the sun is in your eyes it is hard to see, track motion, and generally function.

Polarized Sunglasses Scoring

These Polarized Sunglasses can have a Low Impact on your survival and score 30/100 on the survival scale.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • AcuTint polarized lens system
  • Hard coated for scratch resistance

  • Crystal gunmetal frame with smoke lens

  • Acu-Tint lens coloring system adds color contrast without distorting natural colors, allowing you to see more clearly
  • 100% Protection From Harmful UVA and UVB Rays

SPAM

There is a reason that SPAM is the #1 canned meat brand. That may sound like small praise to some, but SPAM is actually an awesome staple. When I was younger I would take it with me camping and eat it with just about everything. SPAM & eggs, SPAM stew, and toasted SPAM sandwiches. All super easy to make, tasty, and full of calories and nutrition to keep going.

Best of all, its also fully cooked, so even its pouring rain – or you can’t risk a fire, you can still eat well.

It has a stable shelf life of up to five years. Buy fresh stock, and then rotate it, eating the older stuff, and replacing it with fresh units.

Because its also very dense, it’s easy to keep a good supply at you bolt hole without taking up any real storage space at all, which is always at a premium. So stock up and be ready when the sh*t hits the fan.

SPAM Scoring

SPAM can have a Moderate Impact on your survival and scores 366/1000 on the survival scale.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • #1 canned luncheon meat brand
  • Fully cooked canned pork with ham
  • 6 simple ingredients; 0 grams trans fat per serving; 0 grams sugar per serving
  • 7 grams of protein with 180 calories per serving
  • Shelf stable; does not require refrigeration until after it’s opened

Air Horn

This Air Horn is everything from a security device to a multi functional tool. It is a must have safety item for hikers and campers. Why? Because it doesn’t need cell service or rely on radio waves. Basically that means it works wherever you are.

My first bit of advice is that if you are out in the great outdoors with kids, or just people who don’t routinely adventure out into the wilderness, give each of them an Air Horn. It will scare off most wild creatures. But more importantly, it is an easy way to signal if they get lost. Make sure they know what to do. Stop moving. The only reason to move is to find water or shelter. Blow the horn every fifteen minutes. If they hear a return blast, reply. That will let the rescue party find you!

This Air Horn is also a great home defense tool. If someone is trying to break into your house or creeping around your camp site, guess what will get 9/10ths of those people running? You got it, a few blasts of an Air Horn will scare off most creepers. If you are anywhere near other people, it will get them up to help you as well. The other, sad reality, is that the people who don’t run off are likely there for bad reasons. So don’t hesitate if they keep coming. Once you confirm they are a threat, don’t hesitate to use as much force as needed to stop them.

I also keep an Air Horn in my vehicle. Want to flag down help? A few blasts of an Air Horn really gets people’s attention.

The other reason I love my Air Horn is my ability to set up harmless traps. Want to be alerted when someone comes through the woods at the back of your property? A few eye bolts, cables, and a little Air Horn configuration and you have a harmless alarm trap. It also has the bonus of scaring off most would be intruders.

Air Horn Scoring

This Air Horn can have a High Impact on your survival and scores 700/1000 on the survival scale. Buy one for every vehicle you own and one for each member of your hiking group. When you realize you need them, you will be glad you have them!

  • 115dB horn can be heard up to ½ mile (805 m) away.
  • Great for boating, camping, and hiking.
  • Reduce the risk of bear attacks!
  • Periodic blasts warn animal and offer a louder alternative to bear bells.
  • Prevents you from startling wildlife into aggressive/defensive behavior.
  • Compact horn; fits in pocket, backpack, or glove compartment.
  • Simply press the button to sound horn!
  • Loud horn can alert other hikers, or search party if stranded, injured, or lost.
  • Great for boaters in fog conditions – meets U.S. Coast Guard recommendations for boats up to 39’ (12 m).
  • Each horn can sound up to 50 ¼-second blasts or up to 25 ½-second blasts.

Folding Campfire Grill

This Portable Outdoor Folding Campfire Grill is the perfect way to turn any fire into a camp kitchen. I’ve seen so many meals and pots of coffee end up in the fire over the years. People play the rock balancing game. They try to use fire wood to make a stable shelf near the flames. It eventually leads to frustration when you meal falls into the fire! The good news is this Campfire Grill is portable and sets up in under a minute.

Pre disaster, these Grills are worth their weight in gold. They are heavy enough to feel sturdy, but not so heavy that you can’t hike it into your camp. If you discover one of these near a fire pit, feel free to use it, but leave it for the next hiker. There are several trails I used to hike frequently where my buddies and I would just leave them behind so we didn’t have to hike them back in.

Post disaster these Grills make it easy to cook outside. That is important. I won’t be wasting my batteries on powering my stove. I’ll save that energy for critical things like lights and refrigeration for food. Cooking inside in the summer is also a sure way to make your living space too warm for comfort. Much better to just cook outside!

Folding Campfire Grill Scoring

This Portable Outdoor Folding Campfire Grill can have a Low Impact on your survival and scores 179/1000.

Don’t let the number fool you. Being on the list of top thousand survival gear items is a big deal. Just being on the list makes this critical gear.

  • Heavy-duty campfire grill for cooking over an open fire.
  • Made of high-quality welded steel with a steel-mesh grill top.
  • For use with outdoor cookware, including heavy cast iron.
  • Not intended for direct-contact grilling.
  • Legs angle out for stability and fold up underneath for easy transport and compact storage.

Honey

You can never have too much Honey stockpiled. The reason is simple. Honey can be stored forever, never goes bad, is calorie dense, and has medicinal usages. It really is a near perfect food.

Because of Honey’s antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties it has been used to treat illness and wounds since 3000BC in Egypt. When ingested it treats diarrhea and stomach ulcers caused by H. pylori bacteria. For external wounds, it can be applied directly to reduce swelling and reduce the chances of infection. It is believed that on top of its antimicrobial and anti-inflammatory properties, the viscosity of the fluid over the wound acts as a physical barrier to contamination after the initial injury. It also ensures that whatever wound dressings don’t stick to the wound. That sounds odd, but the honey keeps the dressing from getting directly onto the wound, so you are less likely to rip open the wound when you are changing dressings.

In a survival situation Honey is basically the only burn treatment you are going to have. Event a moderate sized burn can be dangerous if you can’t get professional medical treatment. Honey can keep that wound covered and help the wounded survive until the skin can close, or you can get them better care. The big issue with moderate to large burns is the secondary infections that set in once the tissue under the skin is exposed. Honey keeps that tissue covered up.

Put all that together and you understand why I put so much Honey on the shelves at my Bolt Hole.

Honey Scoring

Honey can have an High Impact on your survival and scores 875/1000. Stock up now! Why? Because it has a ton of uses and a little bit can go a long way.

Cross Cut Hand Saw

Power tools are awesome – until the power runs out. Then you’ll be glad you have this Cross Cut Hand Saw to finish your project. A good Hand Saw should be part of every toolbox, and especially your Bolt Hole toolbox. If you are off grid, a Hand Saw is a must have to build just about anything. Even if you have power, you may not want to waste it on power tools, or maybe you don’t want to generate that extra noise.

Power tools are great but if you are using solar to power you off grid camp it may be too much draw on your system. Post disaster the sound of a power tool is going to carry a long way. That may not be good if there are desperate survivors about. Or Zombies. Being quiet might just save your life. But you still need to cut boards to secure your windows and doors!

How does this Hand Saw compare to the Folding Saw? They really serve two different purposes. This Hand Saw is really aimed at your Bolt Hole and dimensional lumber. The Folding Saw is for camping and hiking and is aimed at cutting unprocessed wood for posts, palisades, and of course your fire!

Cross Cut Hand Saw Scoring

This Cross Cut Hand Saw can have a Moderate Impact on your survival and scores 274/1000.

  • Universal toothing is strong and hard wearing.
