In other words, you need a shelter and to be able to keep that shelter warm enough to keep your body temperature above 95 F (35 C) and you need to be prepared to do this for as long as the disaster that caused the grid to go down lasts and depending on the severity and length of the situation you’ll need to be able to do this without attracting unnecessary attention to your location.

Not an easy task to say the least – but it can be done with proper planning, preparation, and work… Let’s get started…

    Thank you for the tip…I had not noticed before and have missed a few articles. Usually, after the ‘read more’ option, the entire article appears. Thanks again!

    We have lived on this ranch for 24 years after building our house with a high quality Regency woodstove as our only heat source for 1600 sq ft. Up until this year we have had an endless supply of firewood here. New trees are always growing along Oak Creek and after a flood there are always plenty of downed ones. The ash burn best, similar to oak. I’ve suggested to my H that we actually plant a grove since they grow so quickly on irrigated pasture… He said, “Add it to the list.” My next purchase will be from Lehmans; handles for the 8 ft crosscut saw that decorates his shop. I’ve stocked plenty of chains for the Stihl saw we have plus rasps and 2 cycle oil since Y2K.
    I’ve begun making more fleece blankets to stockpile for No Az winters. There were several ancient woodstoves on the ranch when we moved here, but they likely do not meet code for clearance against the wall. They also do not always hold a fire all night. We know by now it’s worth it to buy a fuel efficient burning stove with a solid gasket for any heating purposes.
