Having a Stove or Grill at the Bug Out Location

Bug out location stove

How do you plan on cooking at your bug out location? Some kind of disaster has happened, you and your family have moved to the bug out location, you open a #10 can of chili mac,,, and now what? What are your plans on cooking that the bug out location? Do you have a propane camp stove, or maybe an outdoor wood grill?

In other words, the SHTF, now what?

In this article we are going to be looking at propane stoves, wood grill and touch on solar.

Propane

Propane is a short term answer to a long term problem. Propane has several advantages – it stores well, it burns clean, and propane has multiple uses.

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.

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.

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.

First Aid Kit, Fishing Supplies and Propane

Survival Gear - First Aid Kit, Fishing Supplies and PropaneOver the past few weeks we have been talking about spreading your survival gear purchases out over an extended period of time. Instead of dropping several hundred dollars at once, spend $20 here, $30 there, and after a few weeks you and your family will have a nice stockpile of survival gear.

In this article, lets talk about first aid kits, fishing supplies and propane.

First Aid Kits – Almost always a good investment, especially if their on sale. A couple of weeks ago a local big-box-mart had a coleman first Aid kit on sale for something like 10% or 15% off. So I thought why not, we can use a first aid kit in our camping box anyway. So this kit was bought just to take on camping trips with the family.

First aid kits are one of those things that are often overlooked and neglected until their needed. And then its “oh crap” I forgot to put <insert needed item here> in the kit, what are we going to do now?

Propane – is one of the few survival gear supplies that last forever. As long as the bottles are not stored in a wet location where they can rust, or where the bottles can be damaged, everything should be good. I like propane because the bottles can be stored at the camp, and when I need them they are there. Its not like gasoline that goes bad over time, or needs some kind of special treatment to preserve the quality.

Propane also has a wide variety of uses – lanterns, propane stoves, single burner camp stoves and space heaters for a few examples. Propane provides the small comforts of life that everyone likes – warmth, light and hot meals.
