How We Stock up On AntiFreeze for Half the Price

Half Price AntiFreeze InfoGraphicOne thing that I think is important for prepper enthusiasts to keep in mind is that there are lots of other things that need to be stockpiled besides the commonly thought of essentials like food, water, and medical supplies.

It’s with this in mind that I’m writing this article today. We recently had a problem with one of your vehicles slowly leaking antifreeze and we can’t seem to figure out where it’s leaking from. Since we haven’t been able to get it fixed yet, we’re just adding antifreeze as it needs it. That is until we can afford to get it repaired.

Four Tips to Get the Most Out Of Your Generator Runtime

Make the Most of Your Generator Runtime InfoGraphicMany of you who read preppersillustrated.com know by now that our family lived off the grid for over eight years. During that time, we learned firsthand what it might be like if we ever had to survive a doomsday scenario. We didn’t have a well so we had to haul our water to our house and nearly all of our electricity was provided by our generators.

It would’ve been nice if we would have been able to utilize alternative energy sources such as solar panels, wind turbines, or micro hydro electric generators but we didn’t have that luxury. The trees around our property are way too tall for solar or wind to be a viable alternative and we didn’t have a stream nearby so micro hydroelectric was out of the question as well.
