Well, the predicted December 21st, 2012 apocalypse was anticlimactic. I wasn’t praying for a zombie apocalypse, but I was afraid that I would be too busy killing zombies to write any new articles to educate people on what to do in case they get caught in the thick of it all. Since nothing ended up happening we have a bit more time to continue to prepare for when the apocalypse does decide to grace us with its presence. The best way to do that is to introduce a new revolutionary product that could put the chore of seeking out fresh water to rest.
New products have been invented like the camel pack backpack, 1 string pull tent setup, solar powered cookers and other great things to help make surviving in harsh conditions easier for those of you who are not exactly outdoorsy people. I showed you how to make a rain barrel to have a steady water supply, but let’s say it hasn’t rained in weeks and you are starting to run low on fresh drinking water. I stumbled upon a new product on the market called the Life Straw, which will allow an individual to drink from any pond, river, lake or puddle without fear of getting a horrible disease or bacterial infection. This device is ideal for outdoorsmen, military use, or anyone living in an area where clean drinking water is more on the rare side.
Life Straw is a personal filtering device that will filter out 99.9999% of waterborne bacteria and 99.99% of parasites out of the water, no matter what other garbage may be floating around in it. They do have a Life Straw Family, which is a larger filter that will filter out 99.99% of viruses in the water as well. This device is already being used in other countries where fresh drinking water is a bit scarce and it is used by experienced outdoorsmen to avoid the process of boiling and sterilizing your water to ensure it is clean and safe to drink. It is a compact and lightweight filter with a 1 year lifespan that costs only $19.99 plus shipping. It is a pretty sweet deal to ensure a backup plan for clean drinking water. Soon they will develop one with replaceable filters and you will never have to worry about running out of water during the apocalypse again. What a weight lifted off all of our shoulders!!! I have ordered mine and it is great purchase. I suggest you do the same to add to your survival kit that should already exist in your closet somewhere.
