Propane tanks can provide the remote survivalist camp with fuel for stoves, ovens, hot water heaters and even generators. When considering whether to store propane or gasoline, keep in mind that propane can be stored for years.
Two of the main reasons why I like propane – it stores well, and it has a multiple of uses. I can buy the 2 pack of 1 pound propane bottles, store them at the camp, and the fuel never expires. Then there are the wide range of attachments for the bottles – lanterns, stoves and space heaters,,,, only to name a few.
When the weather gets cold, my brother takes a small space heater to his deer stand. Go back a year later and the stove still works.
When we need some light outside, get a propane lantern.
Need to warm up a meal, get the propane stove out and cook something up.
At the camp we have a 250 gallon propane tank which is used to fuel the furnace and the stove. When the power goes out, we can light a couple of the burners on the stove, and we are able to heat just about the whole house with just a couple of burners going.
A buddy of mine has a 500 gallon propane tank that he plans on using for his generator.
Besides 1 pound propane bottles, 250 gallon and 500 gallon propane tanks, there are the 20 pound propane bottles.
Instead of using the 1 pound propane bottles, people can stockpile the 20 pound bottles, then get an adapter to power lanterns, stoves and other devices.
