He used recycled fluted plastic signs, old plywood and a bicycle to build this shelter.

About 5 years ago, I wrote an article on homeless shelters developed by an inventor named Paul Elkins.  His emergency homeless shelters can be built for about $100.00 and will keep you warm and dry.  Now I had rather forgotten about him until I ran across information on a small camper he has built to tow behind his bike.  He has been traveling all over the country in it.

He spends his time building all kinds of inventions many of which could be useful to preppers. …

Note that the manufacturer of Stabil only guarantees safe fuel for two years by doing this.Now I know I am going to catch some flak by telling everyone this but it?s the truth and I completely own up to it.

Do, or die. RE: 'As far as bugging out on foot some of us are too old and damaged for that route.' Man, I get perturbed when I read this notion! There is this idea, it's called, 'Baby Steps'. A person places one foot - in front of the other - and makes way. I'm not putting down those who can no longer get around, I'm related to a few, I know how it is. I just can't stand this American't outlook on things, which isn't confined to just, American't's. It may take a Lot longer than anticipated - but - where there's a will, there's a way. Also, wheels help, and traverses (sp?) the things with two logs and some straps which a person, horse, or dog pulls. Or, even a HoverRound, or maybe a boat? Imagine if you were forced to go. History is full of examples. [For one sample, ] Might you wish to have something ready to make the last days better, for you, or for someone around you whom you liked? ... etc. etc. etc... Anyway, what prompted my comment was this: 'Camp FEMA ... Gee. It kind of sounds like prison, doesn?t it?' Yah, it does. I'm reminded once again of the descriptions of life in a FEMA camp on the webpage, Imho, Absolutely everyBody should read that hair raising description of life after Katrina. With that said, as I was reading the blog I was thinking, 'a lot of people are going to read this and think, 'Oh, this has to do with hurricanes, I don't live in hurricane country, so this isn't for me'.' I feel a bit sorry for those people. It seems they've got no notion as to what the governments are capable of in war, or the past examples of naturally occurring things (which can now be induced by the weapons of mankind, and the willingness of TPTB to use them) and the general trend of the spiral downward of an economy built on piles of mush, so to say. I guess I just haven't lived long enough to have lost the enthusiasm for living. And, I cannot understand not having it. C'est la vie P.S. @Danielle, Are you aware of this?: 'How To Achieve Diabetic Control Completely Free Of Prescription Drugs' Because, yeesh, 'Metformin and Diabetic Drugs Increase Mortality' Your doctor and drug companies will kill ya if the other bastards don't get ya first.
