The second day of our survival bug out trip. Read full details: http://www.thediyworld.com/blog/?p=1498
Day two of our survival outing brought a bit of sun. We went into town on a “scavenging” trip to get some wood to start building our cabin.
On our return to camp I discovered a mess in the bed of the truck. My bed had moved and the batteries slid across the floor, ripping out wires. Fortunately I had all the tools I needed to fix it up and keep going. Another lesson learned. Secure the bed better for travel.
Our meals for the whole day were again cooked on the SilverFire Hunter biomass stove. I am really loving this stove. You can find the stove here:
This stove cooks for an hour using just a handful of twigs or other biomass materials. I will be further experimenting with this stove and testing various materials in it during the coming weeks.
My homemade truck camper sink was perfect for washing dishes or hands in comfort. I am very happy I have it with me. Survival does not have to mean living in the dark ages. I like my modern comforts if I ever need to bug out in a shtf scenario.
I helped Erick build the foundation and frame for his new cabin floor. Afterward we set up some plywood and camp chairs to enjoy the fruit of our labors.
