I have to explain that to my kids all the time when they jump in the car wearing a t-shirt and light sweatshirt when it is -10. "Don't assume the worst won't happen." I usually keep a blanket or sleeping bag in the car in the winter.

I'm gonna guess that is instant rice. I think some foil around the base would help keep the heat in. I have to try that.

Be mindful of the plastic coating on the inside of the tuna can melting a little into your tuna.

Yeah no the oil in one can of tuna didn't boil a cup of water and two cups rice for 20 minutes. That shit is tepid.

My truck is equipped for winter survival and summer desert survival. I keep sleeping bags and extra blankets on hand, plus several gallons of water, about a weeks' worth of food, several flashlights and extra batteries, an emergency radio and plenty of clothing. I have a knife too, just in case.

not going to start on what's in my handbag/purse.....

I don't like carrying the weight of a lot of water; so, I keep some dehydrated water tablets in my wallet. I just haven't figured out what to reconstitute them with yet.

but they're so far out of date it's probably safer to drink the water

I found the jugs of drinking water in my car were freezing, so I just added a pint of antifreeze to each one.

I just drink a little antifreeze every now and then to stay topped up.

Crown Royal makes a really tasty antifreeze.

oooh non minimalist camping tip (prob only for those on this side of the pond)...... Reuse one of those semi-transparent gallon milk jugs as a small drinking water container. At night, set it on a flat surface and set your big flashlight to shine into it and you will have a very useful lantern, bright enough for food prep etc

Good evening Mr. and Mrs. America, from border to border and coast to coast and all the ships at sea. There's good news tonight!

Quote:
National Geographic has built an easy to use web interface that allows anyone to quickly find any 7.5 minute topo in the continental U.S.A. for downloading and printing. Each topo has been pre-processed to print on a standard home, letter size printer. These are the same topos that were printed by USGS for decades on giant bus-sized presses but are now available in multi-page PDFs that can be printed just about anywhere. They are pre-packaged using the standard 7.5 minute, 1:24,000 base but with some twists:

Page 1 is an overview map showing the topo in context
Pages 2 through 5 are the standard USGS topo cut in quarters to fit on standard printers
Hillshading has been added to each page of the PDF to help visualize the topography.

Since now National Geographic is in bed with FOX, these were probably intended for the survivalists in Idaho, but you can get them too. Of course the NSA will probably monitor your downloads so get extras scattered around the country to mind fuck them.

I downloaded every chart of US waterways once. Still have em.

Not sure what I'm going to DO with them, but I got em, just in case the zombie apocalypse comes and I have to take to a boat to survive.
