Not sure if this is the right forum for this?  I am continuing to stock our "go bags" and am very interested in the Life Straw.  It sounds so much better than trying to lug water jugs or those little water pouches in a bag.  Does anyone have any experience with the Life Straw?  Pros/cons?  THANKS!

I have a similar product in my bag as a backup but the problem is if you are someplace that doesn't have any water at all...

Thank you sister Lori.  That looks like a very handy thing to have.  We don't have Amazon here .. population isn't big enough, or some such nonsense, but I have had a look on Amazon UK and they have them there. (I have an English bank account so don't have to convert money). They also have them in a camping shop here I find, but they are horrendously expensive ... like most things here.  Usually cheaper to buy from UK or US even after factoring in the postage.  :)

This was a tough call, but I decided to move it out to the General Discussion and Chit Chat forum since it's more a product related topic more closely tied to disaster preparedness than Christian living.

What do you do if you are some place that doesn't have any water?

Dig down really deep?

 

Seriously, that could be a problem in some areas. However, where we live there are many lakes and rivers so I don't think it's going to be a big factor here. We may need walk 4.5 kilometers to Rogers Reservoir or 7 kilometers to get to Fairy Lake, but water isn't far off.

I've noticed that when people are evacuated during some natural disasters they may be temporarily housed in a school or large building as a shelter, I've seen news clips of flood victims sleeping in cots at a high school gym. I assume they would need to be self-sufficient as much as possible and have their own water.

I think that the problem would not be lack of water, but lack of clean, safe water. With the Life Straw, all water is safe, even the puddle on the sidewalk.

Unless you know exactly where you will be in every emergency and are positive that some water will be available, my personal opinion is to have your own water as recommended and also have a filtration system such as the Life straw so you can use other water if it is available.

Oh, I agree! We still have some bottled water, but it's good to have options :)
