These are so neat. My hubby got us 6 of them from some truck stop down in Tennessee. He tried a couple of them out on the road and seemed to like them. I had had them before , but in our small town I don't see them at any of the stores we have here.

Directions to use them:



1. First tear open the heater bag.

2. Place the meal in the bag against the heater pad.

 3. Pour the provided salt water pouch into the bag to start the heater.

 4. Fold the opening over and use the tape on the bag to keep it closed.

5. Place the meal in the heater bag on a heat-safe surface.


Easy enough to have a hot meal. Great for camping.

We are looking for some land and have decided that the above pictured is what we would put on it. Hope to have this done by next spring. Hope it won't be too late by then. Already talked to the local Amish company to get the cabin. They can have it set up in a day once we get the land. Talk about being really antsy now that I know it can be done. I want it done  yesterday!!! We will most likely be totally off-grid. At least when we first move in. It can be done. My tiny house pins

I was looking up things online and looking for things to use off-grid and found this, ZODI Outback Gear Battery Powered Shower.Wow! There are just so many useful things that can be found for using with no power! Why do we even need to depend on the power companies?

This little badboy is :
  • Battery-powered outdoor water shower
  • 6-volt battery-operated water pump with debris screen
  • Battery case (with on/off switch) runs on 4 D-cell batteries
  • 8-foot shower hose with water-conserving showerhead
  • Pump works in any water source; weighs 2 pounds
Enjoy an outdoor shower anytime, anywhere with the Zodi battery-powered shower.

The shower--which also makes it a snap to drain water fountains or wash dogs--comes with an 8-foot shower hose with a water-conserving showerhead. The entire unit weighs only 2 pounds. About Zodi
Zodi's first products heated water in only 20 minutes, but that wasn't good enough. The company soon cut it to 10 minutes, but waiting 10 minutes for a shower? Now, Zodi's hot water showers give you hot water anytime, anywhere in less than 10 seconds. Today, the Zodi brand is synonymous with innovation, quality, and performance, and is sold in more than 75 countries. Zodi's systems can even be found on Mt. Everest.

I now have a new obsession. A weird one. Maybe. I am a bit of a nerd and am always looking for new things to be able to use if the power grid goes down or to be used in an off-grid situation and now since I have a couple of solar powered and hand crank USB chargers , I am on a kick to get anything and everything that is powered by USB! Also can use them in vehicles with auto adapter.

HERE IS A LIST OF A FEW COOL USB POWERED ITEMS:

Wood Burning Campstove and USB Charger

USB Powered Fridge

USB powered Fan

USB Powered Light

USB Powered Humidifier

USB Powered Fishtank

Could be something to have on hand - 10 in 1 usb charger adapters.

Solar Powered USB charger

Hand Crank USB Charger

Battery Powered USB Charger

Hand Crank Light / USB


There are so many cool little gadgets out there that could be used in off-grid life. Have fun finding new things to use!These would make great Christmas gifts!

A Pioneer Girl Learns to Cook: Apple Pie & Biscuits was a free book for the kindle when this post was written.This would be perfect for a homeschooling project.


This is an educational book about the life of a pioneer girl, the process she had in learning to cook and other aspects of pioneer life. It’s written mainly for girls between the ages of 8 – 13, depending on the reading levels and interests of the individual. There are pictures in this short chapter book of pioneer life to help visualize the times.


It’s a realistic look at life, tools, and equipment used in pioneer days, obtaining food ingredients, and how they kept food safe with no refrigeration. My hope as an author was to help girls to connect with, and get a feel for life in early American history in an engaging way. Differences are highlighted between pioneer life and modern life today.


The book ends with a project for girls to try to duplicate, with an adults’ assistance, the process of making an apple pie and biscuits, including a recipe for both. This would also make a great homeschool project.

Not only is a simple solar oven easy to make, they actually work! And they're perfect for camping trips. Now we can bake up some fresh cookies while we're camping, something we've never been able to do before and you can too.
Here's how. The first thing you need to do is to save your pizza boxes. One per child. The pizza box becomes the oven.
Close the lid of the pizza box as if you were keeping your pizza warm.
Let the kids decorate the outside of their pizza boxes or you can paint or cover the outside in black paint or paper.
Using a sharp knife (parent supervision here or a parent does this part depending on the age of the child) cut along three sides of the pizza box lid, about an inch or two from the edges. This should create a flap.
On the inside of this flap, use some regular white glue and apply tin foil to the entire inside area of the flap. Try your best to get out all the creases from the foil as you press it against the flap.
Now, open up the lid and line the inside of the whole lid with saran wrap or plastic wrap. You want to make this is as snug as you can, creating a nice seal along the edges of the inside of the lid of your pizza box.
This will create a window where you just created your flap.
Using tin foil again line the entire inside of the pizza box.
Find a stick or other sturdy stick like object and after you've closed the lid, open up the flap and hold it open with your stick or other object. Face in the direction of the sun and it won't take long for the inside of your pizza box to heat up.
When you're ready to bake some cookies place the dough in small cookie balls, slightly flattened inside your new oven. With the box lid closed and the flap held open, face your oven into the sun and wait for your cookies to bake!
Baking in a solar oven will take a little longer than in a regular oven depending on the temperature but well worth the wait.
Happy Camping!

For this project the best box would be a banana box or fruit box because of the heavier thicker corrugated design. This box can be picked up for free at your local grocery store. A printer paper box from work would do the job too. The Box Oven can be completely free or as expensive and high tech as you want. The following items can be purchased for about ten bucks or liberated from somewhere else around the house or garage.
4 - 1/8" Diameter Steel Rod (36" long)
1 - Metal Trivet (Steel or Aluminum)
2 - 8 x 8 aluminum Trays
Roll of Aluminum Foil
Aluminum Duct Sealing Tape (optional)
Digital Thermometer with probe (optional - we're going high tech)
Super Glue
Most boxes I have used are 20" long by 15" wide x 9-1/2" deep. Turn box up vertical on end. Measure up 9-1/2" up from bottom and strike a level line on both sides of the box. Measure down 4" from top and strike another level line on both sides of the box. If you do not have a trivet, strike a level line 1" up from bottom.
Mark the top line for two 1/8" holes four inches apart. Mark the middle line for three 1/8" holes three inches apart. Mark the bottom line the same as the top, if you're not using a trivet. (See Photo)
The lid needs to be modified to fit properly. Trim the lip on one end of the lid so it will fit flush on the box without having to handle the box. Use the leftover cardboard to fill the gap in the lid. Use the foil tape to seal off. (See Photo) Remember when baking that the box will be HOT, especially at the top. Caution: Do not use the tape on the inside of the box. The glue on the tape is good for sealing, but not for eating.
Line the inside of the box and lid with two layers of aluminum foil and glue as needed. Be sure and put the shiny side out.
Cut the metal rods in half or have them cut at the home improvement store. Use the rod or an ice pick (be careful) to punch the holes in the box. Brace the box from behind as not to bend or crush it. Also, punch a series on holes on both sides of the box just up from the bottom for ventilation. The handle hole on top can be vented as needed when baking, by taping a foil patch on it as an adjustable flap.
The top and bottom rack will support the aluminum trays and the middle rack with hold the food. (See Photo)
If this oven is going high tech a hole for the digital probe will be needed. The probe should be as close to the food as possible with out touching. Install it about 2" up and near the back of the baking rack.
For a test drive used a tube of store bought biscuits and bake as directed. This oven will need nine briquettes, four on top and five on the bottom. When the charcoals are just turning gray, put four, one in each corner of the tray for the top rack and five, one in each corner and one in center for the bottom rack. Put biscuits in Box Oven. Put on Lid and bake.
The temperature will soar up to 400 degrees or so, then slowly drop to about 225 degrees and hold. Check after about ten minutes or so.
You will be pleasantly surprised. With a little practice you can bake many different types of bread. I pull mine out when I'm grilling, so I do not have to run back into the house for bread.

REACT SIDEKICK LAUNCHES KICKSTARTER CAMPAIGN TO CHANGE THE WAY PEOPLE CALL FOR HELP IN AN EMERGENCY
Wearable safety device issues a widespread alert without the need to unlock a smartphone

RELEASE EMBARGOED UNTIL: 9 a.m. ET, August 13, 2014

SEATTLE (August 13, 2014)—A new Kickstarter project is launching today that has the power to transform the way people call for help in an emergency. The new React Sidekick is a low-energy, wearable Bluetooth safety device that pairs with a powerful safety app putting security within reach when it counts. With a simple click of a button the React Sidekick issues a widespread emergency alert, without having to reach for or unlock a phone.

“Since we launched our app (React Mobile) over a year ago, we’ve been continually evolving our software and it’s become clear that an app alone is not enough. That’s why we’ve created the React Sidekick,” said React Mobile CEO and Co-Founder, Robb Monkman. “The Sidekick provides peace of mind at your fingertips without the need to find your phone, unlock it, and dial. Simply press a button to send out a widespread emergency alert to friends and family.”

The React Sidekick’s modular, gender-neutral design is geared toward those with an active lifestyle, especially when alone or in new environments, meeting new clients, or in a new dating situation. The React Sidekick easily pairs with the React Mobile app and can be worn on a clip, keychain and carabiner. It is also a great tool to give to children and teens so they can easily call for help in an emergency when their phone is out of reach.

After being the victim of an armed robbery several years ago, co-founder Robb Monkman developed the React Mobile app as a way to discretely send out a call for help. After launching React Mobile a year ago, Robb brought together a new team with product design and connected device experience to create the React Sidekick. That team includes hardware veteran Rob Bangerter who has more than 25 years of extensive experience in consumer products and created the world’s first app-enabled game accessory for the iPad. The team also includes Josh Buesseler, an award-winning industrial designer with experience creating products for a broad range of industries, from outdoor to consumer electronics and medical markets.

Kickstarter backers can choose between the black tricolored LED React Sidekick for $29 (early bird special) or a special only for Kickstarter color sold exclusively as part of a VIP package for $99. The team plans to ship the device by December 2014.The Kickstarter goal is $25,000, which will go exclusively to cover tooling costs for the project.

Having clean water to drink is the most important thing to have. With this pitcher that filters your water from Clearly Filtered you can be positive that you will have the cleanest and freshest water. This pitcher is very easy to use and it is gravity fed filtered. A replaceable filter that takes out 99.99% of impurities. It even gets out Fluoride. The filter filters up to 200 gallons of water for your family so it is also a great value.

I was sent this pitcher and filter set over a week ago and immediately started using it. I now only use it. I love it. I really noticed a fresher taste in my tap water as soon as I poured it in my glass. The chlorine smell was gone. No longer do we think we are at a city pool! Our city water supplier must use massive amounts of chlorine. That is the number one reason I started buying bottled water, the chlorine taste is so bad in our tap water that you would gag while trying to even take a small sip. Plus all of the other nasty things in it , like Fluoride and Mercury. It is just scary. But, now we can drink our tap water and know that it is saving us money and it is so easy to use.

    Grow Your Own Groceries: Vegetables was a free kindle book when this post was written.

    Imagine walking out to your backyard or sunny patio and picking your own Plump Juicy tomatoes and crisp lettuce for a healthy salad. It just puts you at peace, knowing how it was grown and that it is fresh and healthy. I often plan the menu depending on what’s ready to harvest. Eating this way is so much easier than menu planning and
    grocery shopping all the time. There are so many reasons to grow your own foods organically and you don’t need to spend a fortune to do so. You can start as big or small as you like. Do you like BLTs with sweet tomatoes and crisp lettuce? Grow a tomato plant with some lettuce planted at its base. Who doesn’t love Spaghetti? You could even make your own Spaghetti sauce. Do you like fresh crisp Lettuce on your burger? Do you use Green Onions? Grow them both in a small pot on a sunny windowsill. This book covers everything you need to know to grow your own vegetables easily and inexpensively.

    In this book you will learn:

    I was really wowed when I first seen this!  My Little Man even more. This is such a neat idea and it is easy to become a backer of this project through Kickstarter!

    A soft, plush toy that becomes a hoodie for your child is a great idea. They can take it along with them in car, camping, school, trips, airplane, etc and if they get cold put it on. Then at bed time they have their snuggly stuffed animal that they can use as a pillow to make them feel at home. Awesome! Pledge to  Hoodsbee at Kickstarter!

    Ebola: How to prepare for Ebola was a free kindle book when this post was written.

    Ebola has been dominating the world news in recent weeks. The Ebola outbreak in West Africa has infected hundreds of people and has claimed many lives. The concern is that the Ebola virus will transfer around the world very quickly. The reason that this is a real danger is that Ebola Symptoms can take as long as 21 days to show themselves, in this time the virus can be spread around the world.

    However, unlike flu the virus, Ebola is not airborne. This gives us a good chance of being able to fight it and stop the Ebola outbreak from spreading.

    This book covers the viral symptoms of the Ebola virus - it tells you what to look out for. Like many infectious diseases, Ebola transfers quickly where there is poor public health and lack of sanitation, the book explains why western survival rates are likely to be higher.

    The prepper community is fully aware of the need to prepare for potential pandemics such as these and preppers will have already stockpiled goods to help them survival if the Ebola outbreak reaches our shores. The book gives a short insight into how a prepper will prepare for any infectious disease, including Ebola and flu, hitting the United States and tells people new to the concept what steps to take in the first instance.
