Do you have something to hold the water? If not, I'd pick up a few gallon jugs.

I can do about 20 gallons right now. I should get some collapsible containers.

About 50 gallons at the moment but I'm building a water collection system.

Also, solar power. Won't lose electricity.

water collection system

Have you considered using collected water for hydro, for additional power?

I don't think that's possible unless you had thousands of gallons on top of a hill and it was refilled with rain every day. He could use containers of water for heating in the winter

You would need a mircoturbine and either a good flow or a drop of I think 2 feet for some of the generators. Nonetheless, since I don't have flowing water close enough, I'd only get power from it when I either drained my tank or when it rained depending on where I mounted the turbine. All in all, not worth the cost unless I was completely set up in other ways.

Easily 6 months worth. Approx. Probably could stretch that to a year if water replenished the rain barrels in a timely manner and we ate less. Not sure what to do with 21000 rounds of 5.56 if we have to bug-out though.

Take 1000 rounds for hunting and self defense, then let me handle the rest.

Been there, done that. Three weeks after Irene and 2 months after Sandy. It's not so bad, once you get into the swing of things. Feels weird when the lights come on again.

When I was a kid, I lived out in the country and the power would go off for at least a few days straight every winter. We had a river in our backyard though so it wasn't a big deal.
