Skinny Medic points out in this brief video that by having a person breathe in the fumes from an alcohol wipe that it can improve nausea symptoms, which is something I’d never considered before and yet one more [easyazon_link identifier=”B00KJ6U8NE” locale=”US” tag=”rethinksurviv-20″]good reason to include them[/easyazon_link] in your preps…

MSR Stainless Steel Stowaway Pot (video)

This video isn’t so much about the [easyazon_link identifier=”B000FBSZGU” locale=”US” tag=”rethinksurviv-20″]MSR stowaway pot[/easyazon_link] but more about all the goodies he’s included with it for cooking. He certainly included the important stuff like a spoon, soap, and condiments; I might have tried to toss in a small rag too but I like to shove, shove, shove. 🙂 You can skip to about the 1:45 mark to get to the heart of the video…

4 Month Old Room Temp Eggs Stored in Slaked Lime (video)

I’ve done a similar test myself years ago using mineral oil to store eggs for at least this long (even eggs NOT coated with oil were good for several weeks) but I’ve never seen this done with slaked lime before. This just goes to show that there’s more than one way to keep eggs fresh for months WITHOUT refrigeration…

Old-School Method to Get Water in the Woods (video)

Like he says, this water procurement method doesn’t make the water safe to drink (you’ll still need to boil it or treat with [easyazon_link keywords=”water treatment tablets” locale=”US” tag=”rethinksurviv-20″]tablets[/easyazon_link], etc) but it sure helps to start with “cleaner” water when doing so than what you would otherwise get from a muddy swamp…

You can skip to about the 4:30 mark to get past the initial comments and the 8:30 mark to get to where he’s actually mixing ingredients.

I should mention, as he does throughout, that you can certainly modify the recipe to suit your tastes so don’t hesitate to adjust it.

Portable Power Plant Golf Cart, Sweet! (video)

Engineer775 always seems to have the most fun with the coolest projects and this one for converting a typical golf cart into a portable power “plant” of sorts is, well, sweet! Too bad they didn’t try to mount all their solar panels on the roof of the golf cart, that would have been over-the-top awesomeness. 🙂
